Naked Princess: Luxe Lip and Body Products

Gross fact – the average woman will ingest over 2 lbs of lipstick in her lifetime! With that in mind I’m trying to be a little more cautious of what I let touch my lips these days and was therefore immediately drawn to Naked Princess (OK…the catchy name had a little something to do with […]

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.

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 […]

Jo Malone Decorated Home Candles by David Hicks

Jo Malone is all about a clean, elegant, and under-stated aesthetic so I was surprised to see that they were introducing some vibrant patterns to their candles. They’ve just teamed up with interior designer David Hicks (whose daughter, India Hicks, was a bridesmaid at Princess Diana’s wedding and will be covering the up-coming royal wedding), […]

Kat Burki Cosmos Collection

I’m not a huge follower of astrology, but without fail at the beginning of every month I check my horoscope on Astrology Zone because, why not? Nothing to lose being “prepared” and Susan Miller is eerily accurate sometimes (if her name sounds familiar it might be because she’s Elle‘s astrology expert). With that in mind […]
