If there was ever a time to practice being present, it is now.
There is a lot of uncertainty at this time.
Uncertainty about how life will change in the coming weeks and months, about what this will ultimately mean financially, and how this will affect the health of our friends and family, our clients (whom are also our friends and family), our-selves, our community, our city, state, country and the whole wide world actually.
With our wellness collectively as the very most important concern, we respect and agree with the decision to close our doors temporarily and have done so since Thursday last week.
As soon as it is considered safe to re-open, we will make sure to update you here.
Meanwhile, although for many of us, our livelihoods are being brought to a halt and we are navigating through the repercussions of that, little matters more than the health of the people we love and care about. Both of which are resulting in, whether apparent or underlying, a fairly co...
"The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always take your time." Junot Diaz
Creating the collage a La Mistinguette Studios is likely the longest time I've spent working on an art project. Not only have I been adding magazine clippings every couple of months for 7 years but some of the images I had already collected and have held onto long before that. It isnt taking so many years due to a lack of content. On the contrary, I have a large pile waiting to be added to the walls but I add only approximately 3-5 images when the time feels right to do so. I'd be lying if I said I was this patient with all of my projects big or small. I'm nonetheless very connected to this project and at no time feel like I'm putting it on the back burner and procrastinating or postponing its completion. Instead, I am enjoying the process of watching it slowly develop. And for that reason it's a nice reminder that some things just require or take more time than othe...
Although a very small gesture, sometimes argued too small, its a positive impactful gesture nonetheless. One that is intended to strengthen the confidence and sense of safety of members of our community; fellow HUMANS. Without having to say a word, the safety pin symbolizes solidarity in the resistance of hate. Wearing a safety pin, or this very cute safety pin on a button by Mia X Marks the Spot, expresses the commitment to stand up to negativity, discrimination and prejudice, and stand by any individuals experiencing it. Make the statement that you will not tolerate the intolerant and will act as an ambassador for safety.
Mia X Marks the spot is known for her amazing handcrafted herbal tea blends but ACTIVIST Body Health & Nourishment Tea is exceptionally unique and purposeful. It's not only reiki infused with intention, it's purchase results in the donation (from a portion of the profit) to benefit organizations that serve underprivileged communities, at risk youth, women in need, and LGBTQ.
The lighting in the hallway, the aesthetic of the light fixtures and the design they create on the walls, sets a romantic vibe that fills my heart by their artistry and elegance. I loved these vintage chandeliers at first sight, but I had no idea just how much beauty and class they would exhibit. A "romantic vibe" is probably not what you expect of your go to wellness and beauty destination. However I find it rather appropriate for the place you build upon and show yourself love, and the place where we provide our passions; our crafts and services from the heart, that make you feel and look good.
Create your own tea blends with Mia X Marks the Spots herb bar here at La Mistinguette Studios. Each herb is described by its medicinal and magical qualities, giving you the insight to address a concern and/or set and intention and thus give more purpose and meaning to your daily ritual.

The overall aesthetic of La Mistingeutte Studios is representative of the transition of Art Nouveau design into Art Deco, which gradually occured between approximately 1910 and 1920. And for this reason many authentic furniture and decorative peices from this time period are found throughout this workspace.
To say Josephine Baker is an inspiration, is an understatement. Which is why the Jazz era symbol and icon, French resistance agent and civil rights activists' images can be found throughout La Mistinguette Studios.
