Reduce Stress in a Healthy Way

In our busy lives, it is easy to become stressed just from the day to day activities. It is important to take time for yourself just to recharge yourself so you can get back out there and tackle those tasks. An hour out of your busy schedule for a relaxing spa treatment is the best activity you can do.

Take a moment right now and think of the last moment you sat still and allowed yourself to do absolutely nothing for just an hour. Doesn’t happen as often as you would like, does it? Just making an appointment at the spa can reduce your stress level. The anticipation of your upcoming appointment can help you get through your week.

The Spa at Fearrington offers relaxing massages, body treatments, facials and nail treatments. If you are really stressed, come spend the day with us – let us pamper you from head to toe. Call The Spa at 919.545.5723 to book a treatment today!

We focus a lot on the ladies here at the shop, but we haven't completely neglected the gents! For Valentine's Day, we love the idea of gifting a Collared Greens tie or bowtie! Certainly, we are partial to our custom Beltie pattern in red for the holiday, but we have several others that fit the bill. Whether it be striped, coral, or even a bold pink, we have plenty...

A Very Happy New Year

According to a Harvard study, it turns out that a wandering mind is the leak in your happiness bucket. Mindfulness creates a state of flow and well-being. Happiness is found by anchoring your thoughts in the present moment, even if you are at the dermatologist. When your focus needs more focus, here are six ideas. One: a set of sharp, bright pencils and a coloring book. I saw that eye roll. Yes, this is new-agey; I have no comeback. But it works. Two: a brand new journal. Write down... Full Post >

Fearrington’s Feathered Flock

At the end of the summer, Fearrington welcomed new free-ranging chickens to our coop! These feathered friends were raised on a farm in North Carolina and now spend their days roaming the Fearrington pastures with the goats. At dusk, the chickens return to the coop and their door closes for safety. The Fearrington farm is now home to 12 chicken species, with some from as far away as China! Our species range from the Old English Game Bantam to the Colombian Wine Dot and the Coocoo Maron. All... Full Post >
