The Salon by Soon Dar Secrets featuring Bella Organici

Want to change your look and lifestyle? Well, look no further! If you want a happier, healthier you, The Salon by Soon Dar Secrets is the perfect place to maintain clean living.

The Salon by Soon Dar Secrets is located in the heart of Jersey’s very own hip town of Hoboken, and it is the town’s first clean air, organic salon. They do it all, from pedicures to manicures, to hair cuts and styles, to waxing and threading.  The salon even features yoga classes and special luxe events!

#HipNJ‘s correspondent, Lisa Marie Latino, was lucky enough to get pampered with a few of their luxury treatments while speaking to the salon’s owner, Pooja Tulsidas. Pooja explained how the salon uses wholesome products that are free from ammonia, formaldehyde and toxins in every one of their services.  The salon is safe and gracious for the entire family!

Organic doesn’t stop there! Ever think about trying out spray tanning, but afraid of exposing your skin to harsh chemicals?  Well, Lisa Marie caught up with Danielle DeCostello, the founder of Bella Organici, LLC, whose organic spray tan & skincare line is safe for all (even pregnant moms!)  Danielle offers her organic spray tanning at The Salon by Soon Dar Secrets, among many other Garden State luxury spots.

Would you say your style is “edgy” or “artisic”? Or do you appreciate a more safe and comfortable look? Regardless, at Maluka, there is a guaranteed fashion find for all.

Maluka is a Jersey luxe, family owned fashion boutique located in the heart of Bergen County in Wyckoff, NJ.  Similarly to the name of the store, all inventory within the boutique reflects a little bit of each owners’ personality. HipNJ’s Gina La Morte visited the boutique, where she spoke with store owning trio, Marcy, Lulu (Lindsay), and Kari.

Since the store opened its doors in 2006, it has become the go-to fashion place in suburbia. What makes Maluka stand out amongst other stores in the area is their patent sense of small town and community. (The store carries only a few pieces of each hand-picked item from their collections– so there’s no wardrobe repeats at that fab dinner party!)  This simple strategy keeps their business flourishing, because their customers receive an individualized look a part from anyone else.

When you shop at Maluka, whether online or in the boutique, it is their top priority to make sure that you are getting the best the industry has to offer. They want to make sure that you, the customer, have as much fun shopping for yourselves as they have shopping for you!

So get ready to have some real fashion fun and visit their website and begin your #HipNJ shopping spree today!

Sea Level Aquarium

“Take it from us because darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter.” -The Little Mermaid

Sea Level Aquarium is more than just a fish and aquarium supply store located in Pine Brook, NJ; it is a haven for the dedicated hobbyist.  Sea Level’s dedication to the education, support, and ultimate success of their customers is evident in this #HipNJ segment with Sea Level’s Joe Taliercio.

In Joe’s interview with Chris LaForgia, we learned that Joe’s long-time interest in underwater sea life makes him one of the most knowledgeable in the Garden State, if not the entire aquatic industry.

The hobby itself is prided in creating a home-based underwater ecosystem for all types of sea creatures. It is a venture that is part science, part technology, and lots of creativity.  Sea Level’s goal is to make sure that every customer receives the right advice in order to successfully maintain a home or office aquarium.

With a superior selection of saltwater and freshwater fish, corals, and invertebrates from around the world, Sea Level Aquarium can help you construct a stunning display that will add wow! factor to any room.
