L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Collection

What better time than right in the middle of the National Cherry Blossom Festival to highlight L’Occitane’s Cherry Blossom Collection? Is anyone in D.C. right now?? I’ve never been during their Cherry Blossom season, but the photos I’ve seen are unbelievable! Not to mention Cherry Blossoms are just one more reason, on an already long […]

Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment: Lend a Helping Hand

Want to hear the scariest thing? Like, ever? Hands show your age more than any other part of your body and they DO NOT lie. You cannot get plastic surgery to reverse the damage. So even if your face is taught and firm, one look at your telltale hands and you might as well have […]

REN Citrus Limonum Prebiotic Hand Cream: Get Caught REN-Handed

From one of my favorite lines, REN – their super-clean skincare has absolutely nothing bad in it – comes their Citrus Limonum Prebiotic Hand Cream, a nourishing, anti-bacterial lightweight cream. Unlike drying and abrasive Purell, that uses alcohol to kill everything (including your hands!), this is alcohol-free. Instead, it has Sicilian Lemon Oil and a […]

In-Flight Hydration Arsenal: Reaching High Altitudes of Moisture

I have been non stop traveling since this year started. From Florence to Las Vegas to New York to Florida (and next month Cancun!), saying that my skin and everything else for that matter, is dehydrated is an understatement. I am completely tapped out!  While on a flight, I drink water like crazy, but I […]

Fresh x Veuve Cliquot Beauty Survival Kit: Splendor in the Snow

When I take my beauty routine into consideration, Champagne doesn’t normally come to mind. I love cosmetics and cocktails equally, but it’s a little counter-intuitive, right? Well, Fresh and Veuve Cliquot make a slightly shocking team, but it somehow makes so much sense! The “Cliquot in the Snow” beauty survival kit was conceived to get […]

Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl Hand Cream: Lifestyles of the Rich and Moisturized

Whenever I put on hand cream, I instinctively rub it into my cuticles since they are always in need of help. I’m not sure how much it’s doing, but it’s better than nothing, right? Most of the time I get a manicure just to clean up my dry and yucky-looking cuticles. Now, with the onset […]

L’Occitane Olive Hand Cream: From Vineyard to Hand

It’s not even full-blown winter (okay, so I do live in Southern California!), and my hands are already taking a beating. As much as I love my L’Occitane hand creams for daily use – especially their Shea Butter – sometimes I need something less greasy. Like when I’m driving. That’s when my hands feel particularly […]

Eve Echo Hand Soap and Santizers: Clean Hands, Clean Conscience

I’m very mindful of the hand soaps I buy mainly because my son has a bit of an obsession with clean hands (could be worse, I suppose!). He will actually stand outside the bathroom door when his cousins or friends are inside, shouting, “I don’t hear you washing your hands!” In fact, he washes his […]

New Limited Edition Buys from L’Occitane

L’Occitane, the ruler when it comes to shea butter, verbena, and almond – at least in my book! – always has great holiday gifts, limited edition sets, and stocking stuffers. Better yet, they’ve got a ton of value sets so you can load-up on favorites for yourself. Holiday Hands Trio ($25) and Shea Travel Treasures($40) […]
