Superfine! made their presence known this year. The art market returned to take over Chelsea in NYC during this year's Frieze week. With an exhibition list featuring over 70% women, this year's artists covered an array of topics from local issues to world issues. Founders Alex Mitow and James Millie out-did themselves from last year's appearance. Superfine! ran from 5/2/18-5/6/17. The fair kicked of with a preview at the Twilight Vernissage which featured cotton-candy-clad champagne and other treats, Heidi Latsky Dance (a live exhibit) and a live painting session by Trina Merry among other surprises.. With a full schedule catering to the fair, collectors had a chance to not only search for new pieces to bring home but also listen in on dialogues including the female arts summit panel featuring Lolita Cros of The Wing, Sophia Dawson of the Lower Eastside Girls Club, Ashley G Garner of Superfine! - The Fair, Carrie Eldridge of NOW ART, and was moderated by Jackie Dreier, founder of ArtsClub NYC. The panel not only dove into the state of art at the moment, but also some of the experiences that women have and continue to endure in art.

 Artists can apply to exhibit at future shows including Miami, Los Angeles and Washington DC. Live through the fair in the photos below. There's still time to go through the E-Fair.

Pier 94 Takeover - Cabana, Capsule & Liberty Fairs

 ELEVEN BY Venus

ELEVEN BY Venus

This season, Pier 94 housed Cabana, Capsule and Liberty Fairs. With three shows under one roof, Liberty Fairs Women opened its doors in New York City for the first time. Between getting greeted by mimoas, making candles with Manready Mercantile manicures by Glamsquad and a Masterclass screening by Mastered, it was difficult to pick where to start first. Walking through Cabana felt like an early access to spring and summer despite the gloomy weather outside at the time. 

With Venus Williams premiering her latest collection for ELEVEN, she explained how her collection is about being your best. Not only is her collection fashion driven, but also focuses on improvement. She went on to describe how fitness not only changes lives but also creates longevity, happiness and ultimately, a lifestyle. From waterproof gear from Rains to handmade hats by Covry Sunwear, it's evident the brands at Pier 94 are willing to push the envelope.

Winter Skin Blues

As the weather continues to play with our emotions based on last week's snowstorm, our skin is caught in the crossfire.  Between frigid weather, rare 40+ degree weather, snow and freezing rain how should we keep our skin moisturized? As much as I love winter, my skin isn't as fond of it. Here are a few products from The Body Shop that have kept my skin pretty satisfied this winter.

Drops of Youth Concentrate: This has been helpful with keeping my skin looking fresher and feeling a lot smoother. It absorbs pretty quick. I use this twice a day on freshly washed and dried skin. 3 drops of this spread evenly on your face and you're good to go.

After using the drops of youth, I use the Vitamin E Moisture Cream in the morning. A little goes a long with this and it holds well against the wind. The best part is your skin doesn't feel sticky or heavy afterward.

At night, I use the Aloe Soothing Night Cream. After a long day, this serves as a nice refreshing pick me-up. A little goes a long way with this one also. It doesn't weigh your skin down and keeps your skin moisturized throughout the night.

What are some products you've used this winter?
