Tocca 2012 Holiday Offerings

The other week I was invited to the Tocca showroom to check out their new gift sets and holiday offerings, but I ended up being more inspired to go home and re-decorate my apartment…seriously!! Their showroom is so beyond chic! They also served some of the best small bites courtesy of Sant Ambroeus, which along […]

Mor Cosmetics

Months ago I was at an event hosted by Nordstrom and I got a MOR candle in the gift bag. I’ve burned this candle almost every day since and it’s about ready to be thrown out, but it still SMELLS AWESOME!!! Truly stunningly amazing quality. The one I got is Basil and Grape scented, which […]

Shopping Find: The Detox Market

I’m completely obsessed with The Detox Market. I’m not even sure how exactly I stumbled upon this website, but they’ve got a killer selection of beauty products, including a number of under-the-radar brands.

SoulCycle by Jonathan Adler Grapefruit Candle

Soul Cycle has the most insane cult following that you can ever imagine — and with good reason! In one of my fave recently published books, Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut, Jill Kargman calls it her spin-nagogue and there couldn’t be a more apt description. When I’m super-stressed or need to fit into that […]

Rodial Life & Style and Holiday Gift Sets

This past summer Rodial founder Maria Hatzistefanis hosted an event to preview her Nip + Fab line, which is now at Target and while I was getting a sneak peak at that, I was also able to check-out her Life & Style range. Truth be told I don’t even know if I was supposed to […]

New Brand Alert: Thompson Ferrier

I’m not a big drinker and not a fan of taking baths, so when I’m looking to unwind after a long day it’s all about a candle (and Bravo TV of course…!). Unfortunately candle prices have gotten out of control lately and worse yet so many of the $70-plus ones don’t have scents that linger […]
