I realized recently- I have a new purse fragrance. In the beginning of summer, I posted to instagram (follow my beauty page here & my lifestyle account here!) talking about my love of Arise from A Girl’s Gotta Spa! & why I’ve been so drawn to it. But becoming a purse perfume? That’s a big deal. That means I reach for it above all others- including other base favorites & oils I tend to reach for. I’m a mom to a toddler & the fragrance in my bag is my most worn- long ago are the days of luxuriating in front of my superabundant collection of luxe bottles. Keep reading to see why I don’t want to be without it! [Read more…]
Ever see someone post about something & then instantly remember how much you love it too? This was me the other day on facebook when someone showed a photo of the Blossom Beauty brand’s beautiful bottle of Blossom Scented Nail Polish Remover (see it here in a bunch of scent options!) because I remembered this fragrance! Because I’ve used up almost my entire rollerball of the Blossom Roll-On Perfume Oil in the Scent Honey Jasmine! [Read more…]
When I think about hand creams I immediately think of L’Occitane. I love the metal tubes, various scents, & wide range of options. I’m kind of addicted! All three of the fragrances I’m sharing today are part of their spring fragrance line, keep reading to see my thoughts on the Iris Bleu and Blanc, Neroli and Orchide, & Jasmine and Bergamot hand creams!

Each year when I pull together my January Beauty Favorites they are mainly about ease of use. Because IMATS LA has been in January the past few years most of my products are geared towards travel! This year, however, I spent half my month there & nearly half my January back here at home. Sick as a dog. Like so sick. It was awful. So prepare yourself for a mix of travel-friendly items & I’m-so-sick-why-is-this-happening products as well! [Read more…]
So first off- I’m totally a fantasy nerd. When all the other kids wanted a pony I was pretty positive my parents could get me a unicorn. #theydoexist & I’m showing you my version of one today! I’ve said many times Valentine’s Day was a big deal in my household- my parents were married on Valentine’s Day! It was always a big deal in our house & my mom always got my something too. Valentine’s Day gifts really should still be a thing- don’t you love yourself? Well LUSH has made all my sparklicious unicorn dreams come true- check out the reveal below!
If you’re anything like me, this time of year brings along some seriously dry lips. I’m going through tubes, pots, & tins like a mad woman already. It is so much work! A great lip exfoliant is important but so is your follow-up balm. When I was searching the Sephora site a few months back I settled on trying something new!
The Tokyo Milk Dark Lip Elixir in La Vie en Rose caught my eye over the 5 other options because I am such a sucker for rose scents. Most people don’t like the tin aspect of lip balms where you have to physically touch it but I honestly don’t mind. Actually…when I’m lazy I stick my lips in there anyway. It IS mine after all. La Vie en Rose contains rosewater, sweet orange, & peach as the main descriptors. All of the balms apparently contain both jasmine & bee balm. I actually love the scent- it smells very rosy & soft. My main issue was with the tin- I can’t get this lid to secure! I was SO sad & actually wasn’t sure if it was worth keeping…then my husband commented on how nice my lips looked & that this was slightly sweet. [Read more…]
Marc Jacobs always manages to take my money. His perfumes smell so good on my skin which is important since fragrances smell slightly different on everyone. When I saw the new Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream bottle I knew I had to have it- I just adore the design! Isn’t she beautiful? Keep reading to hear more about this beauty! [Read more…]
