Frugal Snob: Dove Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Body Wash

For anyone on a budget looking for beauty products to skimp on, the first thing to do is stop buying expensive body wash because drugstore ones are great. Hands down the best, in my opinion, has always been Dove. Their line of moisturizing washes don’t have a thick detergent-like lather, but rather a smooth and soft one and, just like its name indicates, the formulation is moisturizing.

Moscow-Based Beauty Brand Rouge Bunny Rouge Comes Stateside

Anglo-Russian brand Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched stateside, and I had the chance to play around with some of their products. Initially I was intrigued because it’s a Moscow-based brand, and well….I’ve never, that I’m aware of, come across a luxury makeup brand from there.

WITHIN: A Spiritual Awakening to Love & Weight Loss

When Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson speak…I listen. Say what you may but if it weren’t for Anderson there’s no way dance cardio would be the craze it is today, and does anyone else credit Paltrow for their Organic Avenue discovery?

ThirdLove: Let This App Help You Find The Right Bra

I’ve been collecting bras since my teenage years. I think it’s because my boobs have always been small. If I wasn’t wearing a cool bra, why bother wearing one at all? I have amassed hundreds of them – from Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino, to La Perla and Agent Provocateur, and I have them in countless patterns, colors, materials…and sizes.

Nina Ricci Teams with Ladurée: La Tentation de Nina

Here’s a pairing that would have likely never happened were Olivier Theyskens still at the helm of Nina Ricci (I so miss him there!). The brand has collaborated with Ladurée for a new scent, La Tentation de Nina. Well, it could have happened with Theyskens, but I feel like it would have resulted in a caviar macaron-inspired perfume or something!

Yes to Grapefruit Spot Correcting Body Cream

Frugal Snob: Yes to Grapefruit Spot Correcting Body Cream

There are countless face creams that fight dark spots, but I rarely see any body creams that fight them. I love all Yes to products; I’ve tried dozens of them and have yet to come across one that isn’t effective, so I was intrigued by Yes to Grapefruit spot correcting body cream.
