We love fringe benefits. Nothing wrong with free snacks at work, dropping five pounds after a wisdom-tooth extraction, or a reliable NSA makeout buddy.
Get flowers and then some at The Little Glass Slipper, now open in Greenpoint.
Florist and herb enthusiast Cary Pereyra creates romantic, full-bodied bouquets stuffed with good-for-you flora. While arrangements might not cure the flu, the botanicals do provide an attractive dose of aromatherapy.
For September, Pereyra is focusing on end-of-summer and early fall herbs like rosemary (improves circulation), lavender (good for seasonal depression), echinacea (immune boost), and mint (soothing). Some bouquets help with skin and digestive system woes.
Pick up premade bouquets or order a custom creation targeted to your symptoms. Pereyra works fruit, branches, or pods into each bunch of buds so you get a visual treat to go with your holistic one.
Double the pleasure, indeed.
