This past weekend, I went to the Hamptons with my friend Lynette from Life is Better in Yoga Pants and our friend Michelle. The three of us planned this at a restaurant opening a few weeks ago. A few days before we headed out east, Lynette scored us invites to Women’s Health “Well-thy” Home event and Feed 10 kick off event.
So I’ve never actually been to the Hamptons despite living in NYC for almost 4 years. We headed out east Friday afternoon. I had no idea it would be this packed so I was sitting on the floor of the LIRR on the way out for a 2-hour trip. When we got there, we explored the share house for a bit before heading out for dinner and drinks.
On Saturday morning, we got up bright and early to get to Montauk, which was a 40 minute drive from our house. When we got there, we ate some breakfast before settling in for roof top yoga.

After yoga, I grabbed some cocktails which had a tea based mixer. It was so good.
After grabbing some snacks, we headed outside of the house for Keri Gassman’s nutrition talk on “cleansing.” I love her platform that we should eat foods to feel empowered. Her idea of cleansing was more about eating good, healthy foods and less about juicing [which typically comes to my mind when I hear “cleanse”]. We also got to try out some healthy recipes of hers.

Up next was a workout with Heidi Powell of the show “Extreme Weight Loss.” Except I totally got my hair and make up done with Glamsquad instead. They had the braid & make up bar going all day as well as those cocktails I had earlier. I never wear my hair in braids or get my make up done so this was a treat.
We wrapped the day up with one more session on creating a healthy home space with James Houston and finally got our goodie bags!

The next morning, because I was so exhausted, I finally rolled out of bed around 11:30am and went directly to the pool for a few hours until brunch in Sag Harbor, which is a cute little town, before getting back on the train to the city that evening.

It was such a good weekend. I definitely need more visits to the Hamptons soon!
[thanks for getting us the WH tix, Lynette!]
