Every other week on Hamptons-Magazine.com, I’ll focus on one pillar of a Nutritious Life, and give you a Nutritious Life Tip (NLT) Hamptons-style. Last time was all about how to sleep deeply and peacefully, now we'll focus on getting ready for fall.
Your World: Ah…Labor Day. Warm temperatures may make autumn seem far off, but fall will creep up on us before we even have time to unpack our beach bags. All of these changes impact our health—physically and mentally. Although we can’t control the change of seasons (bummer!), your home is Your World and that is one environment you can control!
NLT Hamptons-Style: Prepare calmly for autumn to arrive. Try these tips to keep Your World stuck in a place of "summertime zen," as you healthfully prepare for the transition into fall.
Clean Out Your Closets AND Cabinets: The arrival of fall fashion means it’s time to revamp your wardrobe, but don’t stop there! Out with the sugary, possibly expired condiments and in with new herbs, spices, and vinegars.
If condiments, such as ketchup, barbecue sauce, and salad dressings are hogging up your shelf space, toss them and restock with the new and improved ones for fall. Instead of sugary salad dressings, experiment with different types of vinegars such as raspberry, pomegranate, and blueberry. Try cloves, oregano, basil, thyme, and cinnamon to add flavor to your dishes instead of ketchup and sauces—doing so will give you an additional boost of antioxidants and save calories. If you’ve been collecting tea bags in your pantry it may be time to clear out and replenish them, too. Experiment with the different tea flavors available in the markets now.
Winterize Your Freezer: You don’t have to be Martha Stewart to freeze your own fruit. Head to the market and stock up on your favorite summer fruits now, pop them in your freezer, and enjoy all fall. Voila! You now have a secret stash of summer’s best produce.
The best ones to freeze are watermelon, grapes, kiwis, and mangos. If you don’t feel like freezing them for yourself, check the freezer aisle of your grocery store. Many brands such as Bird’s Eye sell frozen fruits and vegetables, like pineapple, bananas, and corn, all year-round. As an added bonus, frozen fruits and vegetables contain the max amount of nutrients because they are flash frozen as soon as they are picked at peak ripeness.
Stay in Shape and Have a Laugh: Choose your favorite fall comedy and walk or run on your treadmill for the entire length of the show. You'll be so wrapped up in the latest episode, you'll hardly notice you've been burning calories.
Beat the Post-Summer Blues: Take your favorite photos from summer, frame them, and use them to decorate your walls. Apply this tip now, and get a fresh hint of summertime until well after Labor Day.
Keep Your Summer Sleep Habits: Use calming teas, tranquil sounds, or a sleep mask to get better sleep this fall. A lack of sleep may cause weight gain by affecting hormones that control appetite. Plus, the extra sleep will help keep you focused throughout the day and better able to stay on top of your “back-to-school” schedule. Read how to sleep deeply and healthfully here>>

Julien Farel is the man on the US Open sidelines making everyone look good—literally. This will be Farel and his eponymous salon’s sixth year courtside as the official stylist of the US Open, providing makeovers for players, coaches, celebrities, and journalists alike in his “Style Suite.” Here’s more on what fans can expect from Farel this year at the 2012 Open.
Are you excited for your sixth year at the US Open?
JULIEN FAREL: Yeah it’s always great—it’s tiring—but it’s a great competition. For me, coming from a very small, very tiny little village in France, it was unbelievable to feel like I could suddenly reach that level in my career. To be able to take care of all of the players and VIPs and have a pop-up salon at the US Open, it’s a big deal.
What styles can we expect from you this year?
JF: I am a big fan of bangs—I think they’re a [great] way to make somebody look pretty. No matter what kind of face shape you have, it’s something that will help you correct the imperfections. We will [also] probably have a side braid this year, especially starting from the front to make sure that the hair doesn’t fly away, even if it’s frizzy from the humidity.
Is it true your Julien Farel hair product line will also be used in the “Style Suite”?
JF: Yes, absolutely. It’s an anti-aging hair care line, and all of the styling products are also anti-UVA.
How many customers come to your “Style Suite” during the course of the US Open?
JF: A lot. There are almost 500 players, so during those two weeks we usually do 30-40 services a day, or more I would say. Usually it’s about 15 per technician. And we have three technicians there plus two for manicures/pedicures.
Speaking of pedicures, you’ve just added Bastien Gonzalez to your team.
JF: Exactly! He is a friend of mine, and we have decided to join forces. He really wanted to do it, and I said why not? He’s a wonderful person, and is as passionate with feet and nails as I am with hair. So I thought that would be a good match.
Is there anything else you’d like for our Hamptons readers to know?
JF: You should come to the US Open and see our salon! We’re just happy to serve people and create something custom for them. I don’t take anything for granted, and no matter who you are—if you’re a VIP, a celebrated tennis player, or a client—and you can come see me, or see us, it should be an experience. And you should leave with the thought that it was worth it. That’s my main thing.
The Julien Farel “Style Suite” will be open to players, VIP guests, as well as press from Saturday August 25 through Sunday September 9, 2012. For more information, visit julienfarel.com.
