Farmhouse Fresh Goods: Backcountry Beauty

The farm to table ideas comes to beauty (so I guess it’s farm to bathroom?). I just discovered this line, and now I want to buy everything they make. The natural ingredients come straight from their farm, so there are no chemicals. All of the products are even vegan and gluten free. And the scents … Continue reading Farmhouse Fresh Goods: Backcountry Beauty

Aveda Hand Relief Cream: Natural Selection

Whether you’re on the dry West Coast or the frigid East Coast, you need a good moisturizer right about now. So, I keep Aveda Hand Relief on my desk all the time. There’s nothing more distracting than having dry, cracking hands while you’re working. I’m constantly staring at them and criticizing everything (luckily today I … Continue reading Aveda Hand Relief Cream: Natural Selection

Fight Dry Skin with Mario Badescu

I love Mario Badescu. They may not have the swankiest packaging, but when you’ve got skincare issues – say a breakout that just won’t go away or exceptionally dry skin – they’ve always got the right product. Plus I much, much rather a company invest in good quality ingredients than advertising or flashy containers. Badescu … Continue reading Fight Dry Skin with Mario Badescu

Soap and Glory Shower Trip

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

Natura Bisse: Shine Bright like a Diamond

Santa didn’t bring you everything your heart desired? Why not treat yourself! I prefer diamonds but if that’s not in the budget, you can get diamonds of another kind– from Natura Bisse. I’ve been using Natura Bisse since college, and from the very first Diamond Cream, I was hooked. I spent more time in the … Continue reading Natura Bisse: Shine Bright like a Diamond

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: First Line of Defense

Sometimes basic moisturizers are just not enough. Our skin is an organ, so it can require more TLC that we normally remember to give it. I have a friend who couldn’t get rid of a rough patch on her forehead for almost 6 months. She tried out at least half a dozen moisturizers before she … Continue reading First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: First Line of Defense

Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

Beauty products are like tech products – they just get better and more effective every year. I mean did you know that CC cream is already a thing? I feel like BB just made her first appearance! Some beauty buys can be trendy (dark ‘90s lip liner hasn’t aged so well), but these top choices … Continue reading Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

K. Hall Designs Lavender Cream: Field of Purple Dreams

This is how much I love lavender – I went all the way to Provence (aka the lavender mecca of the world) to visit the museum. As you can probably tell, I’m a real advocate of aromatherapy. When I was in France, I bought a years supply of pure oil, but I’ve finally run out. … Continue reading K. Hall Designs Lavender Cream: Field of Purple Dreams

June Jacobs Spa Collection: DIY Spa

High-end hotels started carrying the June Jacobs Spa Collection a few years ago – but rather than waiting for luxury to find you, why not make your own? Now that snow has started falling for some of you, I recommend a nice warm spa day – at home! Just pick up a few of these … Continue reading June Jacobs Spa Collection: DIY Spa
