I’ve been living in New York for four years now and I can’t believe it took me this long to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Earlier this week Kendall and I spent the afternoon taking in all the cherry blossoms and tulip gardens currently in bloom. Guys, it was so beautiful! It’s hard to believe this much natural color exists so close to Manhattan.
Speaking of cherry blossoms…I couldn’t say no when Rituals approached me to shoot a look around the relaunch of the brand’s cherry blossom-inspired Sakura Collection. I really enjoyed learning more about Rituals bath and body products at their store opening event last month so the timing for a visit to the garden could not have been more perfect.
I love that the philosophy behind the Rituals Sakura Collection is about celebrating each day as a new beginning. The collection blends Cherry Blossom with nourishing Rice Milk and will definitely have you feeling like you hit the re-start button on your body (and mind!) I couldn’t agree more especially now with the arrival of spring! My favorites are the Sakura Body Scrub for exfoliating and the Shower Foam because it doesn’t dry out my skin.
If you’re visiting New York in the coming weeks, I highly recommend you stop by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Just make sure you check the website before you go to see what plants are in bloom! And if you’re a shopaholic like me you should make a note that Rituals is opening a new store in Herald Square this May 🙂
What beauty products are you loving for spring? Have you ever visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden?
Big thanks to Kendall for shooting these photos!
