I think we can all agree that the phrase “lazy summer” applies with particular accuracy to our beauty routines. Flat irons sound considerably less appealing than “beach hair” sprays (or just cramming your unwashed locks into a messy bun). And makeup? I don’t know about you, but when it’s 90 degrees outside, the last thing on my mind is bothering with a full face of foundation that will inevitably melt and pool into the “fine lines” on my forehead within seconds of leaving my house.

Friends, sorry I’ve been MIA this week…I’m a bit under the weather. But I’m emerging from my fog because I can’t go another day without telling you about these new Kérastase goodies I’ve been trying. I’ve been trying to hold out until I tested a few other brands to mix things up a bit. But honestly, these deserve their own show – they’re that good. Read on
Since it’s Monday, and we’re all cursing that extra hour of sleep we lost yesterday, something tells me we could all use a little beautifying this morning. So, I thought I’d share a few of the spring beauty goodies that have recently made it to the front of the towering pile of products otherwise known as my bathroom counter.
When the rabid trend for beauty oils began, I donned my usual skeptical expression (one eyebrow cocked in a way that I like to think makes me look both shrewd and brilliant, but will probably just result in uneven wrinkles when I’m
40 80). Oil? On my face? On purpose? But little by little, I’ve weakened, and they’ve started creeping into my daily beauty routine. Finally, I looked around my bathroom yesterday and realized I’ve become an oil addict.
Why, you ask? The beauty of beauty oils is a multi-faceted thing. They feel luxurious to use, like I’m Elizabeth Taylor or something. On a practical note, they seem more soothing to my skin, more natural than applying creams and gels and tonics. It feels closer to what my skin would actually want, if it could ask. Also, they’re a relative bargain – a very little bit of oil goes a very long way.
With that, a few of the oils I can’t get enough of these days: Read on
Where on earth did this week go, friends? Is November scaring the pants off you with its apparent insistence on hurtling toward December at a breakneck pace? Or is that just me? Mental note: must find a way to take a deep breath and have a cocktail before my brain scrambles entirely. Besides drinking myself into a semi-relaxed state, here’s what I’ll be up to this weekend: Read on
It’s September, friends! Finally! It’s my favorite month of the year – and not just because my birthday’s fast approaching (though that definitely helps). September always feels like a season of possibility. Leaves change, the air takes on that delicious chill, kids are locked back in their cells for another nine months, and the world feels like it makes a bit more sense.
So, I’m choosing to ignore the fact that the weather report claims it’ll be 90 degrees this weekend where I am. Instead, I’m looking ahead. To short boots, cozy fires, and soup season. Grab your first pumpkin spice latte of the season and do a little something to help your brain transition to fall. Need a few suggestions? Read on
