Spring Refresh: Cocktails, Sundresses, and Cosmic Dating Apps Included
In partnership with our friends at Patrón Tequila
Longer days, warmer temperatures, and a feeling of potential in the air—thank you, spring. Four of goop’s own share how they’re embracing the season of reset and refresh.
Sip on This
I’m taking advantage of spring weather by sitting on my porch at magic hour with my husband and a cocktail. My current go-to is this Hibiscus and Tequila Spritz. It’s a refreshing, easy sipper that’s simple to throw together. I’ve been using Patrón Reposado tequila, and it makes a huge difference. The flavor is one thing—it’s incomparably smooth—but I really appreciate the highest-quality raw ingredients and that there are no additives: no glycerin, caramel coloring, oak extracts, or sugar-based syrups.
Tulips, ranunculus, daffodils—all my favorite spring flowers look great in this vase.
Crisp white sneakers are classic for a reason. I loved them as a kid, love them as an adult, and will probably wear them well into my eccentric old-lady days.
I have very fair skin. I’m excited to be spending more time outdoors as it warms up, but I need to stay vigilant with my sunscreen. Everything The Organic Pharmacy makes feels so silky and smells amazing.

My workweek breakfast is usually a smoothie, but recently I’ve been in a smoothie rut. And by recently, I mean I’ve made the same smoothie every morning for the last 1 million days. But I got up the courage to venture out of my comfort zone a little and started adding Four Sigmatic’s plant-based protein. One day maybe I’ll get crazy enough to try a whole new recipe. Baby steps.
I just had a new linen slipcover made for my couch in an effort to spice up my living room without having to commit to a whole new couch situation. As an added bonus, it gave me an excuse to buy some new throw pillows. This cashmere one is dreamy, but I love everything Aiayu makes.
My dream sundress is one that allows me to sit in the grass without fear of getting dirty—or being able to see the dirt. And of course: must have pockets. This Xirena dress checks both boxes beautifully.
This dress from Rhode is also on my wish list for when I have friends and a life again. Look how cute and fun I’ll be!

That’s a Wrap
I can’t stop thinking about the Curry Chicken Salad Summer Rolls from goop Kitchen, our new delivery concept in Los Angeles. If I lived on the Westside, I would probably order from goop Kitchen every day. Everything on the menu is colorful, clean, and super flavorful, so it’s inspiring me at home right now. I’m going to try making these homemade spring rolls with a bunch of fresh spring veggies. You could even swap out the rice paper for crisp butter lettuce (another hot tip I learned from the goop Kitchen menu). Here’s hoping chef Kim Floresca will drop the mango chutney recipe soon.
Editor’s note: Chef Kim did indeed drop the recipe.
I’ve been spinning out over how to update my apartment now that I’m living without a roommate for the first time, which is how designer Justina Blakeney, the founder of Jungalow, got her start. She moved to a 500-square-foot 1920s bungalow and started experimenting with plants and patterns and colors. Her new book, Jungalow: Decorate Wild documents her journey, and it’s been inspiring me to think beyond my white walls and more deeply about my personal identity. I love how she incorporates elements from her heritage and travels and how she embraces standing out and the magic of the mix and the in-between of things.
A few years ago, I started using Co-Star, the horoscope app, as a not-so-secret way of checking out the natal charts of anyone I was interested in dating. I’ve been single for a while, and now that we’re having some nice warm-weather days in LA, I’ve decided to hit the dating apps once again. So back to Co-Star: I’ve always thought it would be genius if there was a dating option in the app, where you could match with people based on your cosmic chemistry. Turns out it already exists. The app Struck uses your birth chart to pair you with astrologically compatible people. It’s hard to get excited about yet another dating app, but I’m willing to receive a little help from the stars this spring.

When spring rolls around, I use it as an excuse to refresh everything in my life—especially my beauty routine. I always transition a few key products. My heavier face cream gets shelved in favor of something a little lighter. I’ve been loving the new GOOPGLOW Glow Lotion because it feels extremely light on my skin but still hydrates and leaves a fresh silky finish.
Changing up my perfume is another fun seasonal update. My spring scent will forever be Florgasm by Heretic. It smells like a perfect flower field but in a subtle, casual way. I don’t like anything too overwhelming, and this scent is just right.
I like to add a little more color to my face this time of year. This lip and cheek tint gives a little glow—I do the Very Sweet color.
