Hangover Cures: Instant Gratification Facial Treatments

It’s that time of year when our bodies are being pushed to the limit, both mentally and physically. We are all crazy-busy between shopping, cooking, decorating, and maybe traveling. Add the endless parties, nice wines, and late nights, and who takes the real beating? Your skin! Then you need to look good all over again the next day, so what do you do? Booking a facial would be ideal, but let’s be serious: Squeezing in an appointment like that just isn’t feasible. Santa is the only who’s able to stop time around here.

The Luxury of Beauty: All About Eve by Eve’s

As much as I love the big box Sephora or Nordstrom experience, there’s a lot to be said for a well-curated boutique where you know that every last item in the store is of the highest caliber. Such is the case with Eve by Eve’s, a gorgeous shop located in the heart of Beverly Hills.

Holiday Gifts with Heart

The oft-quoted statistic says that 20% of New Yorkers go to bed hungry, and that one in four children in New York goes to bed hungry. Horrifying. A close friend of mine was one of those kids, and to this day she has anxiety about ever returning to the times when creditors were knocking on her parents’ front door and dinner wasn’t guaranteed.

Lift, Lift, and Away: Chantecaille Bio Lifting Cream is a Dream

I’ve seen just about every fad come and go (thanks to the Digital Age, trends get recycled as quickly as the seasons change!), but one thing never goes out of style: anti-aging – or more specifically, lifting products that claim to reverse time.

Luz de la Riva: Intimate Cosmetics

Sometimes you just have to spice things up in a relationship to keep it interesting. I’m about the last person to get out of my comfort zone, which is why I was intrigued by Luz de la Riva.

Here's Why Bathing in Chocolate Might Be Just As Good As Eating It

Here’s Why Bathing in Chocolate Might Be Just As Good As Eating It

Bathing and eating chocolate both sound pretty fabulously indulgent (and I hate the word fabulous!). As I write this, I’m munching on some brandy-infused chocolates I bought at Demel while in Vienna. You have to pop each chocolate whole into your mouth or risk some liquid dribble. Needless to say, it’s making it a bit easier to deal with my 4 p.m. slump.

Here's How to Get Rid of a Blemish ASAP

Here’s How to Get Rid of a Blemish ASAP

We’ve all been there…you get up and you have a Cindy Crawford mole-sized zit on your face. The panic! When it happens to me I obsess over it and always think that everyone is staring at it. While there are a handful of actives that work well, I’ve found that far and away sulfur works the best and in particular the sulfur mask from Proactiv+.

Aveeno: A Lifetime Commitment

I started using Aveeno back in college. Whenever I had skin issues, switching to Aveeno helped get me on track; so after I gave birth, I wasted no time in making my baby boy a convert, as well.
