With a name like The Gnarly Whale you know this brand has to be eco-friendly and vegan…am I right!? And I don’t mean that in a bad way…am totally loving the name and the fact that the brand focuses on using as few ingredients as possible in their all-natural bath and body line-up.
Everything is multi-purpose these days – smart phones, kitchen appliances…there are even toilets with heated seats! Why not indulge in beauty products with as many functions? Anything to give you a few more minutes to spend time with your family and friends, or god forbid – sleep – is worth considering.
My showers clock in at record time. I can shampoo and condition my hair, wash my body, and clean my face in two minutes flat, but I’m always looking for ways to beat my own time. Just as Olympic runners cut down on their records with the help of the best gear, so I will … Continue reading Kai Body Buffer: One for the Record Books

We shouldn’t forget about green products once Earth Day is over. It’s something I’m working very hard to be conscious of and though it’s getting easier to find appealing chemical-free products, it’s still hard to stay away from the mainstream brands that I love. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing however and with … Continue reading Frugal Snob: Avalon Organics Aloe Unscented Bath & Shower Gel
For awhile I was using the Kate Somerville product I wrote about the other day on my back for my hot yoga-induced acne (the second I stop using the body brush on my Clarisonic damn bumps appear..meh..), but it’s not cost effective. Even though the bottle only costs $22 it’s tiny. So after chatting with … Continue reading Blemish Buffing Beads For Face and Body
I cannot handle the East Coast right now!!! I am pale as a ghost and it’s freezing! I’m counting my lucky stars that I have a job that allows me to work from anywhere and that my parents have an apartment in South Beach so that I can fly back and forth every few weeks … Continue reading Soap and Glory Shower Trip
