If you've ever ventured around Greenpoint, then hopefully you've seen The Little Glass Slipper, a truly one-of-a-kind herb florist. Cary Pereyra combined her tenure under master decorative artists like David Tutera with her interest in herbal studies to debut the Brooklyn shop. The florist sells ready-made and bespoke arrangements that offer aromatherapy, skin care, air purification, edible arrangements, and other medicinal benefits. Since everyone is getting the blues now that summer has left us, we asked Cary to help our readers out by letting us know how to fight the end of summer blues, courtesy of her herbal arrangements.

We're looking for easy, on-the-go tips for styling our hair in the summer. That's why when the warmer weather rolls around, our blowdryers, curling irons and straight irons all take a backseat. No time for extra sweating when we should be sucking down cool drinks at the bar with friends!
One summer hairstyle we can't live without? Twists! They're super easy, stylish and take no more than 5 minutes to put together (once you've perfected how you like them done). You can wear them with your hair up or down. We love them because they keep bangs or shorter angles out of our face, so they're great for days at the beach or nights on the town. Wear them with loose curls (like Jennifer Garner does here) or do them quickly as you hop out of the shower and tie your hair back for a perfectly sexy and simple sophisticated look!
Chicago in the summertime. If you make it through the excruciating winter (eh, this year wasn't too shabby), you're rewarded with an incredible, robust, crazy entertainment schedule that puts any city to shame. All publications throughout town broadcast with great excitement the carefully curated collective of farmer's markets, flea markets, art fairs and music festivals. Once it starts, there's no turning back...even though the unpredictable Chicago weather is likely to dip above and below a pleasant temperature in the weeks to come, once you make your first trip to the Green City Market, summer is ON. And why shouldn't it be? Now that NATO has come and gone, let's take a minute to run down some of the notable music festivals hitting Chitown in summer 2012. Take a peek, buy some tickets and enjoy (arguably) the best season this fair city has to offer.
