The Saint Series, Vol. 5: Batsheva Hay

The Saint Series, Vol. 5: Batsheva Hay

After ditching her day job as a high-powered lawyer, New York native Batsheva Hay launched herself into a somewhat accidental second career as a pattern-making, puff-sleeve-obsessed fashion designer. Today, the badass entrepeneur has outfitted everyone from Aidy Bryant and Selma Blair to Karen Elson, and she's picked up a few tips along the way.

1. If you could describe your brand in one sentence, what would it be?
I make clothes that I think are worthy of wanting to wear.
2. Your career trajectory is so impressive...you were a lawyer and then transitioned to become a badass fashion designer with a serious cult following. What's one bit of advice you'd tell to someone who isn't sure they're "on the right path"?
It is corny but true--you have to do what you love. I didn't love being a lawyer and that was difficult to admit because I had invested so much in it. After walking out on that job with no plan, it honestly took years to start a clothing business, but once I did, I could not stop. When people were not into my dresses, I didn't care because I knew they were wrong. I felt sure of myself, and that is a feeling I keep going with.
3. You're a working mom and brand founder...how do you find balance between work and family?
At the moment, my kids keep coming in while I am hiding in bed with my laptop trying to get work done. Part of the balance is being flexible between work and family, stealing some extra work while the kids are napping on Sunday. It also helps that I work from home so we always have dinner together even though I am finishing up my days work with my team. Part of motherhood is getting comfortable with situations that are not neat, including work.
4. What's your No.1 beauty tip?
Take care of your skin, it's the most important thing. And use the Luxury Beauty Serum! The weight and texture is perfection. 
5. Is there a charity or philanthropic cause you really care about? If so, what is it and why?
Planned Parenthood, especially now. Roe v. Wade is under threat now more than ever.
6. If you were a saint, what would you be the saint of? 
Saint of ruffles.
6a. You just had your New York Fashion Week show! What were you most excited for and what's one of your biggest fears? 
I'm always excited about my shows. Each time I do one, I try to come up with an idea that makes it exciting for me, and this one was pretty out there-- it makes me uncomfortable and nervous, but in a good way.
My biggest fears don't have anything to do with fashion, so that helps. I know that fashion is nothing that will change the world, that makes it easier to do. I used to work as a serious lawyer and the stakes felt so high. Now I feel like I am playing. That said, each season it gets more serious. We just try to stay organized as much as possible.

THE SAINT SERIES, VOL 2: JANE LARKWORTHY

THE SAINT SERIES, VOL 2: JANE LARKWORTHY

Welcome back to The Saint Series ... Where we ask six questions of inspiring women we believe are ready for sainthood.

This week on our Saint Series, we profiled legendary beauty editor and fabulously funny friend Jane Larkworthy. With 30+ years under her belt, Larkworthy has made a name for herself as the industry’s go-to for exceptional beauty reporting, working everywhere from Glamour Magazine to W Magazine. 

Now, as Editor-at-Large at NYMagazine's The Cut, she heads up her own column “The Beauty of it All”...all while baking bagels (Shiksa Bagels) and hanging with her pup.

She’s a powerhouse worthy of sainthood...just don’t call her a beauty junkie.

1. You say you're not a "beauty junkie". How was had that made you a better editor?

A temp job during my senior year in college landed me at Glamour’s beauty department. They had me at “free conditioner and perfume,” but yeah, not being a junkie has fared me well. I have balance about what I report on, and try to never fall for claims without investigating them first. But the beauty industry is filled with very cool people, and I feel extremely fortunate to have found my way into it.

2. What's the best beauty advice you've ever received?

Line the inner waterline of your upper lashes for a good pop, from a makeup artist but I forget who. It was decades ago. And the advice I give is STAY OUT OF THE SUN AND WEAR SUNSCREEN, STUPID!

5. After a long day, how do you wind down each night?

I take a bath, then lights out and we turn on Stephen Colbert while my husband rubs my back. Together, he and Stephen lull me to sleep.

The Saint of Silliness and procrastination.

Q1: How do you incorporate CBD into your daily routine?

I love using topical products, like Saint Jane's Luxury Body Serum, for any skin irritations or muscular pain. I find them extremely soothing.

Q2: What's the best beauty advice you've ever received?

At the very least, always remove your makeup before bed...

Q3: What are your 3 tips for achieving a better work-life balance?

The first is to always keep a calendar. I find staying organized helps me manage my time most efficiently. The second is to listen to your body...if you need a warm bath instead of a girl's night out, that's okay! And the third is to set reasonable goals for yourself and then check in with your progress from time to time.

Q4: After a long day, how do you wind down each night?

It will usually depend on how tired I am after a day of chasing my little one around, but usually I love to use my LED Light Therapy mask after I've cleansed and applied my skincare products. It helps them absorb deeper and is really relaxing.

Q5: You're a new mom with a son less than a year old! Any tips for fellow new mommies?

Soak up every minute of it...it goes by too fast!

Q6: If you were a Saint, what would you be the Saint of?

I'd probably be the saint of turning lemons into lemonade...

INTRODUCING...OUR LUXURY BODY SERUM

INTRODUCING...OUR LUXURY BODY SERUM

 

Nourish your body like your face with our citrus and bourbon vanilla-infused super blend. Packed with 28 omega-rich botanicals, 200mg of full-spectrum CBD and exfoliating fruit acids like pink grapefruit and tangerine, this silky serum reveals soft, radiant skin all day long.

For us, it was absolutely crucial that we formulate a gorgeous serum so that you can treat your body beautifully. That means sustainably sourcing each and every ingredient, and curating a blend that brightens, softens, and smoothes all skin types. Instead of loading our Luxury Body Serum up with generic oils, we thoughtfully paired healing sunflower, jojoba, and rosehip oils with brightening actives like sandalwood, raspberry seed, and blood orange to help calm irritation, reduce redness, and help promote healthy skin renewal. We topped it off with 200mg of full-spectrum CBD, and a touch of soothing bourbon vanilla.

Use our new Luxury Body Serum ($58) with our Luxury Beauty Serum ($125) for a daily wellness ritual that feeds your body and soul from the outside in.
