Life’s not about waiting for the storm to pass -- it’s about fun activities on rainy days, too! Here are some things to do when the weather turns blue.
56 The Circle, East Hampton / Website
Rainy days are for sitting back, relaxing and focusing on you. Rejuvenation Health, located in the heart of East Hampton, specializes in a mouth facial to get your pearly whites pearlier. The Rejuvenation Mouth Facial repairs the gums and balances the natural mouth biofilm that is too often “sanitized” by chemicals on the oral care market. This service includes detailed cleaning and polishing of the teeth with gentle antioxidant paste, then a Himalayan salt rinse to remove 84 trace elements. Afterward, a hydrating antioxidant-rich gum mask is applied to soothe the gums, followed by a 10-minute myofascial massage to relieve tense muscles of the face, temples, jaw and neck using detoxifying fine oil serums.
Every village out East boasts some amazing stores. Today, East Hampton's shops are a great distraction from the gray skies that offer an opportunity to shorten your holiday shopping list. Some amazing options include Tenet, Click, Brunello Cucinelli, London Jewelers, Henri Lehr, Kirna Zabet, Peserico and more.
Homes in the Hamptons are some of the hottest real estate items in the world. On a rainy day, drive by some of these humble abodes and walk-in for an exclusive viewing. One of the most popular open houses on the market, 74 Cranberry Hole Rd, is currently open. Take a drive to this legendary 10-bedroom house, including five acres of good land and great views. Stop in at some of the renowned real estate agents’ listings, including fan-favorites Corcoran, Douglas Elliman and Saunders. Maybe even splash through a few puddles along the way!
