Let’s face it, March can be a bit of a “meh” month. Be it because of the hangover from a fernet fueled February, the panic induced by a looming tax deadline or simply the inability to decide whether to don a turtleneck or a tank top on any given day, March is a veritable strugglebus. Which is why we’re taking the time to work on being kinder to ourselves and each other, and are approaching April with a little more mindfulness (and a lot more major meals), treading with care as we navigate this transition from slush to (hopefully) Spring.
We hope that whatever closet you’re currently trapped in, trying to choose between fuzzy socks and flip flops, your weekend ahead is a healthy, happy and delicious one.

THE HARLEM HOT SPOT WE’LL HAPPILY HIT UP
NEW MOON MAGNETISM
No matter how much we like to think we have a handle on things, we can admit we occasionally fall prey to the mayhem brought on by a Mercury in Retrograde. This past Wednesday marked the vernal equinox and, as we usher in a new astrological year, we’re looking toward our Women’s New Moon Intention Circle with The First House, to keep us a little more grounded, a little more sane, and a lot more connected through the new season to come.
