Arugula Salad With Grilled Apricots and Pistachios  

 

There’s nothing we enjoy more than taking a stroll to our local farmer’s market to discover all the new gifts of Spring. This springtime salad combines fruity, luscious apricot with bold and hearty arugula to create the perfect appetizer for an outdoors brunch. This salad is packed with vitamins, especially Vitamin K (important for bone health), minerals and natural sugars. Crunchy pistachios add the perfect finishing touch to this gorgeous salad. 

 

Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Strawberry Sauce 

 

At Skylar, we love thinking outside the box and pursuing new ideas, so when we came across this tenderloin recipe.. we were in love! The recipe starts off with thick, juicy tenderloin, browned to perfection. To balance the umami flavors of the pork, a citrus strawberry glaze is added, bringing the dish to a new dimension. We recommend trying this recipe out for mom this month. This adventurous dish is sure to impress the whole family this Mother’s Day!

 

Coconut Custard and Rhubarb Tart

 

Whenever we think of Spring, somehow Rhubarb always comes to mind. Perhaps it’s the bright red that captivates us, or the fresh, sweet-smell of rhubarb pie. This spring, we wanted to kick things up a notch by going beyond the classic pie we all know and love, and venture into the land of coconut heaven. This creamy coconut custard and rhubarb tart is the stuff of dreams.. the rich, decadent coconut pairs beautifully with the rhubarb. Try out this recipe during the next family BBQ, it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser!

We are all about bath time these days especially with the winter cold taking longer than usual to wear off. But after a long winter of baths, we wanted to mix it up and make our baths work harder for us. Good Housekeeping gave us just the inspiration we were looking for. Next time we're in the mood for aromatherapy, we're trying these ideas out.  


1. Mood Boost Bath

Uplift and energize with this revitalizing combo that can also boost concentration and focus.

    *Combine with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of carrier oil before adding to bath.

    2. Muscle-Soothing Bath

    Target tired, overworked muscles with this trio that may dial up circulation and dial down pain.

      *Combine with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of carrier oil before adding to bath.

      3. Relaxation Bath

      This calming and relaxing combo can reduce stress and get you ready for bed.

        *Combine with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of carrier oil before adding to bath.

        We would say more but the bath is calling our names...

        The third Friday of October is National Mammography Day.

        The importance of getting a yearly Mammogram cannot be overstated.  Radiologists perform X-rays to detect any abnormalities in the breast and surrounding tissue. Abnormalities in the breast area come in the form of tumors which may be either benign or malignant, but can only be confirmed by a screening.

        According to the American College of Radiology (ACR), screenings usually take less than 15 minutes and can help detect early signs of breast cancer. Early detection is crucial. If a tumor is spotted, early treatment allows for a greater chance of survival. Most doctors recommend starting mammography check-ups around the age of 45-50 years old and encourage women to continue scheduling annual mammograms afterward, even if there were no signs the year before.  

         

         

        Where Can I Schedule a Mammogram? 

        Health insurance plans almost always cover mammograms. You can schedule a mammogram through your regular healthcare provider, or search for local clinics offering the service. Check out some of these great providers; YWCA Encore Plus Programs,  Planned Parenthood Clinics, and American Cancer Society. The National Breast Cancer Foundation's National Mammography Program also offers free mammograms. To find the nearest in your area, click here

        Make sure the clinic you visit is approved by the FDA. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration screens all facilities that offer mammograms to ensure machines used meet all health and safety codes.

        Over the summer, we sent out a “Skylar Scent Search” survey asking our Skylar gals which scent they would like to see us create next. We received an overwhelmingly large influx of amazing suggestions from our customers all around the world, but one particular submission had us hooked. Describing a summer trip she took to Italy as a student, Dallas Daws wished for a scent that captured her experience on the island in Italy’s Bay of Naples, Capri. Capri boasted warm sands, ripe citrus trees, sparkling limoncello and the salty breeze of the sunny mediterranean, making it truly the stuff of dreams.

         

        Once we saw Dallas’s idea, we couldn’t wait to get to work on bringing her back to that moment of pure bliss, and introduce all our customers to this carefree moment in Capri. Of course, we had to meet the wonderful girl behind our newest scent inspiration, so we flew Dallas out to Los Angeles, CA to come meet the Skylar team. Together, our team and Dallas enjoyed a fun-filled weekend of Malibu hikes, wine tasting, watercolor classes and most importantly, a meet up with Sarah Horowitz, our master perfumer to brainstorm how we could craft the ultimate just-out- of-the-water, no-work-tomorrow, sun-in-your-hair carefree Capri indulgence. Here are some photos from our trip together.
