Sucked In // A Facial Cupping Experience

THANK YOU to everyone who came to our Tata Harper Facial Cupping event in store last week! In case you missed it and are still curious, here’s how it went…



I’ve had cupping done before on my back so knew and loved the benefits – and was familiar with the infamous bruising. I was confident the procedure would be entirely different (i.e. no bruising!) as a facial, but wasn’t sure how the benefits would compare. I am always ready to try the latest and greatest product or facial procedure, so I sat in the chair with my wintery pale face and puffy eyes, eagerly awaiting the esthetician’s treatment.

Nik is highly trained in the art of facial cupping. I was in the best hands, literally.  He began with Tata’s Refreshing Cleanser to prime the canvas for the little suckers.  After a brief facial massage, I was already relaxed and getting my glow on. He followed with Hydrating Floral Essence and then topped with Beautifying Face Oil, which provides a smooth, silky surface allowing the facial cups to work their magic effortlessly.

For the next several minutes, he used a rhythmic technique of quick but vigorous strokes, gently moving from the center of my face outward, lightly stimulating the muscles and initiating blood flow. He used a variety of facial cup sizes designed for different areas of the face. It was so relaxing. Like little fish kisses all over my face!

The concept of facial cupping is to stimulate circulation, retrieve and remove toxins and revive the skin with fresh blood and nutrients, thus creating a healthy, youthful glow. At the end of my treatment, I have to say, cupping delivered on its promise! I looked completely refreshed and alert, and felt revived. So revived, in fact, that I promptly took my fresh face out of the chair and over to the Green Envy denim wall where I found the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans to compliment my new relaxed look.

Do denim. Do you. 


Green Envy

Trend Spotlight: Denim

Denim is everywhere, and for good reason. It’s timeless, adaptable, and the styles continually evolve to keep the look fresh and interesting. At Green Envy, we fancy ourselves as denim experts and we’ve got the latest trends and brands at the ready to keep you current. We have the largest selection of premium denim in New England and pride ourselves on our wall of denim featuring over 20 top denim brands – Mother, Hudson, Paige, Frame, Rag & Bone, 7 For All Mankind, Levi’s, McGuire and more! From your classic cuts to the freshest styles, we are fully stocked with jeans to create a luxe and casual foundation to your wardrobe. 

Here are some trends we are seeing for Spring 2018:

THROWBACK.  There’s 90’s nostalgia happening right now via pale washes, high rises and straight silhouettes.  Add a hint of 70’s to the time machine and you’ve got this season’s wide leg, baggier denim trend.  Top brands are taking cues from Levi’s originals with a blend of masculine structure and hints of feminine detail. 

  • Grey Wash 
  • Light Wash
  • Straight
  • High Rise
  • Wide Leg

EMBELLISHMENT.  We’re loving the little extras that take a premium pair to the next level and create a statement. Varsity stripes, floral embroidery or patchwork pockets add just the right amount of interest to any pair of jeans. 

  • Varsity Stripes
  • Embroidery
Shop the Ibiza in LA Sirena by McGuire
Shop Levi’s 501 Embroidered Crop

THE CUTTING EDGE.  The usual suspects are still edging out the hem trend category. Long exaggerated flare, wide undone cuffs, cropped skinnies, and ankle length boot cuts are in the spotlight this season. From a classic tailored hem to distressed and destroyed edges, hemlines take on their own personalities. With such a wide range of hems on trend, finding what works for your body type and wardrobe style is becoming easier and easier. 

  • Simple Raw Edge
  • Heavy Fray
  • Staggered Hem
  • Wide Undone Hem
  • Distressed Edge
  • Cropped/Ankle Length

ANYTHING GOES.  The best thing about denim rules is there aren’t any! We are truly in a moment of ‘anything goes.’ Have fun and mix it up! From classic tailored, stretchy slim-fitting jeans to cropped, distressed ankle-skimming boyfriend cuts, let denim be your go-to wardrobe staple or statement making pant.

You Glow, Girl!

We’re exploring trends in beauty and wellness as much as fashion, and we couldn’t say no to facial cupping! Met with an initial reaction of uncertainty, our first question for facial cupping was “Am I going to have bruises all over my face!?” (think Michael Phelps and Gwyneth Paltrow sporting their post-cupping spots).  The short answer is a fervent NO. In fact, facial cupping is gentle and revitalizing and the technique doesn’t leave a footprint like the ancient traditional cupping therapy performed on the rest of the body.



This gentle treatment uses soft suction cups that lightly roll over the face in a continual circular motion to improve circulation, ease tension, soften fine lines and alleviate pain. The result is a youthful, healthy glow that instantly takes years off your look. We promise you’ll be sucked into this natural healing treatment!


MARCH 1ST @ Green Envy (appointment required). Our favorite Tata Harper team, along with their national esthetician Nik, will be in house to pamper you with a complimentary professional facial cupping treatment and answer your Tata Harper skincare questions! Appointments will be available between 11am and 6pm. Each treatment is about 45 minutes in length and is free of charge (a $300 value!). Space is very limited, so don’t think twice! Book your complimentary appointment today! AND, while you’ve got the experts’ attention, be sure to get a skin consultation and find the right Tata Harper product regimen for your skin!

Reserve your spot! Call (802) 253-2661 OR email

Motivation Monday: Flower Power

Comparison is the thief of joy, they say.  We are constantly comparing ourselves – to our peers, coworkers, celebrities, the sparkling angles captured on social media and even to our former and futures selves. #RealTalk – with the innumerable count of individuals in this world, there will always be someone with more or better. This week, do you. Be you. In the present. Compare yourself to no one, including versions of yourself. Be like the flower – blossom, never mind what the daisy, rose, peony or wildflower boasts beside you. Let their growth only inspire you to confidently lift your head taller.


Pssst…florals are in.

“I must have flowers, always, always” – Monet

Happy Monday.




Racing Stripes for the Win.

We’re tracking the side stripe trend and it’s in full gear! Add a hint of sport and Team USA spirit with a red, white and black (on blue) stripe by Joe’s Jeans or Hudson. Go edgy with a crisp white stripe on black or grey denim from Mother Denim. Or make a subtle statement with a tonal blue ribbon by Hudson or shadow stripe by 7 For All Mankind.


Stripes are adorning sweats too! An allover modernized retro vibe is achieved with this ultra soft fleece Beatrice Pullover with ribbed striped cuffs, neckline and hem (just restocked! Hurry on over!)


Stripes are the statement to make this season. Pair your striped denim with a classic sweater or the perfect tee. Or match with another blossoming trend this season – florals! We love the Awilda floral silk blouse with a pop of colorful stripe.



Motivation Monday: Keep Moving.

I have the resolve to keep my New Year’s resolutions for roughly a week. Then the excuses pour forth. I was resolved to go to the gym 4 days each week. I’ve gone a total of 3 days. It’s January 15th. Please don’t do the math. Life gets hectic and priorities change on the daily. Time flies, small crises arise, you spend your spin class budget on dinner and drinks with friends… (This is a judgement free zone, friends.)  The key is to not let it get you down, but look forward to the next opportunity to become a better you.  Sometimes it may take a little extra to motivate you…a new pair of leggings for your spin class, or a perfect-fitting pair of jeans to show off  your hard work. (You could even pop in a pair of gold studs to sport during or after your workout.)

Regardless of how well [or not well] you are sticking to your resolutions this year – don’t quit! Keep moving.


Remember, the turtle won the race, not the rabbit. It’s not about your pace, it’s about your persistence and steadfast commitment to keep pressing forward, even when you may stumble. Fly, walk, run, crawl – go pursue this week one forward motion at a time.

Happy Monday.
