Whether it’s an issue of time or whether it’s an issue of price, for many of us, getting to the spa as often as we’d like simply isn’t an option.

NYFW had some crazy looks this season, especially Hood by Air’s un-blended contoured faces (read: clown makeup). One place where we saw beauty that can actually inspire real women was at Theory’s show where La Prairie and makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo led the team.

I’ll make a long story short and say that a few months ago I had a cut on my body that wasn’t healing. Nothing worked. Finally I was given a bit of Botox, and lo and behold, the small cut was healed. With that I learned that Botox has a number of uses unrelated to making wrinkles disappear.

Love this!! Kusmi’s collaborative efforts just keep getting better and better. This is zooming to the top of my holiday covet list (test, test, test to see if my mother does in fact read everything I write like she claims…).

Gemstone-Infused Body Products

Most of us know people who tote around crystals and gemstones, whether in their pockets or as part of jewelry. These baubles have long been used for their supposed wellness/healing properties and so they are carried for good luck and wellness.
