Say “Chai” to the Aveda Light the Way Candle: Limited Edition for Earth Month

Mmm…chai tea. That’s exactly what the new Aveda Light the Way Candle ($12) smells like to me. I have one scent-ifying my office right now, and oh my gosh, it smells good! — like vanilla and cinnamon (but not like someone dumped out two bottles of pure vanilla and cinnamon in the room).

Coral, Bronze and Gold: A Natural, Summery Face of the Day With Tom Ford Summer 2015, NARS Eyelashes, RMS Beauty, Paul & Joe and More

My father-in-law does this thing where he answers every “when” question with the word, “Tuesday,” like, “When did you guys go to that dinner?” And he says, “Tuesday.” Or, “When was that storm you mentioned?” To which he says, “Tuesday.” And he giggles every time like it’s the funniest joke in the world.

Meatless Monday: Colorful Cabbage Salad

Look at all the pretty colors! (she said, making grabby hands.) Last night I prepped a huge batch of this salad with cabbage, carrot, bell pepper and celery to eat for lunch this week. I also made a tahini lemon garlic dressing, too, which I like to toss in at the last moment. Show More Summary

Nails of the Day: Essie Garden Variety

Irrespective of this super creamy, smooth, streak-free paw paint’s proper name, it’s not your garden variety creamy teal. Essie’s Garden Variety Nail Polish ($8.50) is so preternaturally pigmented that 1) it’s liable to make nearby flowers jealous, and 2) you can easily get away with wearing just one layer.

Pacifica Natural Deodorant Wipes: Wiping Out Odor One Swipe at a Time

With Wednesday being Earth Day, the big thing out here in California is water. (Bottom line, we don’t have enough of it.) I’ve been trying to use less, and I read somewhere that you can save 5-10 gallons — which is a lot! — by turning...Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 369

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?” Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. Show More Summary

Comment to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora! (Ends Monday)

Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s caturday! Today’s forecast calls for patchy morning fog, clearing up to sunshine and temps in the low-to-mid 70s by the afternoon. Your nephew is currently perched behind me on the living room windowsill. Show More Summary

Nails of the Day/Night: Smith & Cult Bitter Buddhist

Tonight I’m wearing two coats of Smith & Cult’s Bitter Buddhist ($18), which is officially described as a “celadon green.” A celadon. I thought a celadon was a kind of dinosaur? No? LOL! Seriously, though, I thought it was a restaurant before doing this post. Show More Summary

The Bobbi Brown Summer 2015 Sandy Nudes Collection

Under normal circumstances, I adhere to a very strict no-nudity policy when it comes to sand. In other words, I do not like being nude on or around sand; or, conversely, sandy and nude. Because I don’t like spending 20 minutes trying...Show More Summary

We could posslby even start with these new NARS Eyelashes ($20 each, and being added to the permanent collection). Show More Summary

Open Thread: The Garlic Fries Edition

Garlic fries: my rationale for eating them includes the fact that they are made of vegetables; therefore, eating a large pile of garlic fries is practically the same thing as eating a salad. Also, since I like to smother mine with ketchup...Show More Summary

I say WOWZA when it comes to brows! On second thought, maybe I say BROW-ZA. Wowza to brow-za… Yeah, I don’t know what I’m saying. What I’m trying to say, though, apparently very non-eloquently, is that I freaking love eyebrows. Perhaps a little too much. Show More Summary

This is probably a little too much glam for the Home Depot trip I had planned to take this afternoon… Oh, well! Yeah, I wasn’t thinking about potting mix and tomato plants (gotta get my deck garden situation worked out, ASAP!) when I...Show More Summary

Question of the Day: How Many Bottles Do You Have in Your Shower?

Shampoos, conditioners, body washes, body lotions (yup, I keep mine in the shower), shave creams, etc. Go check, and count ‘em all up. Or, take a quick mental inventory. I did a major culling a few weeks ago during a feng shui shower...Show More Summary

Urban Outfitters Beauty Haul: Tony Moly, Hair Therapy and The Gnarly Whale

I’m really hoping that including Tabs in this picture is enough to distract you from the fact that 1) I’m in my pajamas, 2) I’m not wearing any makeup, and 3) I’m wearing this totally weird hair treatment cap by Kocostar Hair Therapy. Show More Summary
