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 […]

Cowshed Spa at Soho House | Mother’s Day

Hey New York! Treat mom to a day at the Cowshed Spa at the SoHo House this weekend! We love Cowshed’s all natural premium quality products made with minimal use of preservatives.

Frugal Snob: Caldrea for Target

Growing-up in Manhattan it was quite the adjustment when I went upstate to Cornell for college (I didn’t even know how to drive at that point!). While I missed a lot of city things, Ithaca had one thing that Manhattan didn’t — Target (ooo how I miss being a 5 minute drive away from Target!). […]

Godiva Launches Candles

I live a handful of blocks from a Godiva shop and it’s a near-daily struggle to restrain myself from their decadent, smooth, chocolaty goodness (and those chocolate-dipped strawberries!). I’m not saying that candles could ever, ever, EVER be a substitute for chocolate which has forever been my weakness, but if they could the just-launched ones […]

Alexa Rodulfo Candles

Note to reader: I take candle recommending very seriously. These are, after all, scents designed to rub my olfactory bulbs the right way. So it’s with a heartfelt two thumbs up that I endorse Alexa Rodulfo‘s decadent new candle collection. The quintet of scents–Bois D’Alexa, Bois Sauvage, Bois Blanc and Bois D’Amour–are the brainchild of […]

Upper Canada Soap Aroma Cocktails

Upper Canada Soap has just come-out with some cocktail inspired waterbead diffusers that come in drink-inspired packaging. It’s kind of ironic that I love these because I’m not a big drinker at all (except if the drink involves champagne…), but I will so be displaying one of these diffusers come New Year. I’ve actually added […]

New from Dermalogica

About two weeks ago Dermalogica had a little event in their new Soho boutique and I was able to check-out some of their recently launched products. Prior to going to the store I had actually never tried anything from the line, but I was super impressed by how knowledgeable the staff was. One of their […]
