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 […]

Voluspa Candles: Not for the weak!

If you like really strong scented candles you should try Voluspa Candles (I have trouble pronouncing it, too).  I have never experienced such strong fragranced candles in my life!  And it’s not always a good thing, especially if it’s a scent you can not stand.  But in a scent you love (for me it’s gardenia […]

Holiday Gifts for the Person Who Has It All

Chances are there’s someone on your list who’s impossible to shop for. Either they never know what they want (like my indecisive best friend Christine), are super picky (like my mama), or already have everything they want (ever since my dad got himself a new Maserati there’s pretty much nothing that seems to be able […]

Frugal Snob: Kiss My Face Charity Holiday Collection

Anything that gets the seal of approval of my local Health Nut store, Fairway’s organic/health section, and Whole Foods usually gets my vote – and Kiss My Face is prominently displayed at all three (note that if you’re in NYC some items from the line are currently on sale at Fairway:-)). A favorite of those […]

Laduree Perfumed Candle Collection

I was shopping in the home section at Bergdorf Goodman a few days ago when I spotted a table with over a dozen candles in an array of eye-catching colors. I immediately began to sniff away and whilst making my way down the line of scents, I noticed that the candles were from Laduree! Candles […]

Tocca Candle Collection

Aside from Dayna Decker, Tocca takes the cake for me when it comes to candles. Sleek and classic, they can blend into pretty much any room decor and the scents do not dissipate after the first 2-3 uses like so many others. The display of Tocca candles just got even more chic via a new […]

Fresh x Eat, Pray, Love Fragrance Collection

Talk about thinking outside the box! In celebration of the August 13 release of the new Sony Pictures film “Eat, Pray, Love” starring Julia Roberts, Fresh has created a fragrance collection by the same name based on the best-selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert. The trio of offerings from Fresh launches on July 15, and was […]

New from Fresh

A few weeks ago I went over to the Fresh headquarters to check-out their Eat, Pray, Love collection. Until recently it was top secret (I had to sign something where I promised to keep a tight lip!), so I’m excited to finally share what I learned about the collection! Based on the best-selling memoir by […]

Lafco New York’s House and Home Candle Collection

I almost always have candles burning in my apartment – hence almost every table, unfortunately, having wax stains! Candles really set the mood in a room and a scent that works in your bathroom is probably not going to work for your kitchen or your bedroom. To take the guesswork out for us, Lafco New […]
