Travel Series: How I Carry-On? with Sarah Greaves-Gabbadon

How I Carry-On? is a travel series devoted to travel style. As a traveler, I curious about peoples travel routines, what they pack, and how they live their lives always en route. My travel motto if the trip is under 10 days – carry-on only. This usually works 95% of the time. It also made me [...]

Travel Wish List: Hotel Lone – Rovinj, Croatia

I’m headed on a Mediterranean Cruise next year and I’m already plotting and planning my adventure. The cruise leaves out of Rome, but I’m considering a trip to Croatia either before or after the cruise. I still haven’t made up my mind, but Croatia has been on my list for a long time. My first [...]

URBAN DECAY Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Freestyle

I hope everyone had a great mother’s day. I decided that this would be the last mother’s day I wasn’t with her in Louisiana. I already blocked off the dates in my calendar for next few years. If I could be half as amazing as she is then I will be proud of myself. It’s [...]

Wheels Down: Lexus RX 450h SUV

This review is definitely for the car junkies in my life. I’m normally all about everything 30,000 and above. Sometimes, I have to stay on the ground. I love highway driving. I am a woman who loves the open road. I’m still dreaming of driving cross country with an iPod full of music and This [...]

Wellness Wednesday: Yoga Journal Live! Conference ~ New York

I was still recovering from my California jaunt when the invitation to attend the Yoga Journal Live! Conference in New York came into my inbox. I could not say no. I changed some plans, bought travel tickets, and decided that the best thing would be to stay with family in Queens. Yes, it would be [...]

Travel Diary: Calistoga & Napa Valley, California ~ Day 1

It’s no secret that I’m itching to move to California. I love DC, but this girl is ready to live in the land of wine, beach, earthquakes, and yoga. I decided last year that I wanted to spend more time exploring various parts of the U.S. A lot of time travelers believe we have to [...]

NIVEA’s Kiss of Care & Color

At any given time I have three to four lip products in my bag. I don’t think it’s necessary an excess because I used to have almost  ten. In the constant effort to save my shoulders and back from the super heavy bags I am lightening my load. I always have a clear lip balm, a [...]

Body Beautiful With Belle Butters

I always think my body is a wonderland, but today it is still a sore wonderland. I attended the Yoga Journal Conference last weekend and needless to say it’s a lot of yoga. There are five 2-hour yoga sessions daily and optional intensives. Get my drift? My scent du jour is Tiger Balm, but since it [...]

Life Ain’t Always Rainbows and Unicorns

Today is one of those days that just sucks. I didn’t plan to write anything. I usually prefer to wallow in my own self-pity. One of my friend’s told me last night, “be thankful that you had such a good dad. This doesn’t stop you from missing him, but in the heartache find the gratitude.” My [...]

Reading Pretty: Thrive – The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder by Arianna Huffington

Webster defines thrive as: “to grow or develop successfully : to flourish or succeed.” It does not include anything about being rich, busy, sleep deprived, conniving, and mean. It seems in our society today the only way to thrive is to be the best no matter what the cost. Unhappy? Check. Mean? Check? Sleep Deprived? [...]

RoC Daily Resurfacing Disks

It’s no secret that I am a skincare junkie. I believe you only get one face so you need to take care of it. I stand behind this even though I do like to lay out in the sun and get bronzed. But won’t I don’t play with it is how much work I put [...]

Skin Mojo with Perricone’s Chloro Plasma Mask

  Radiance is one of those words that beauty people tend to bounce around. It’s not like fashion where it’s either in or out. Radiance is what most women want in their skin. The more radiant you look, the less makeup you can wear, and women want to look pretty with nothing on their skin. [...]

{4.25.14} Le Weekend

By the time you read this I will be half way to New York for the Yoga Journal Conference. I was asked if I wanted to attend the conference and since I haven’t been to a Yoga Journal conference in years I couldn’t say no. Travel, beauty, New York, and yoga? It was a no [...]

Oh Dolce! How Sweet it is to Be Spritzed By You!

Lovely winter we are having this spring! I know it’s technically spring, but the wind and the lower temperatures has me doubting my spring commitment. It’s all good. Spring brings pollen, allergies, and new scents. Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce scent is putting a bright smile on my face. The scent is a great combination of [...]

A New Type of Patch: Natural Patches of Vermont

I had never heard of Natural Patches of Vermont. It took me traveling 1800 miles to find it. I normally travel with my coterie of essential oils – lavender, peppermint, and lemon. I’m always worrying about the bottles breaking and the bane of my existence TSA telling me “no essential oils for you.” Well, oh [...]

Wellness Wednesday: Aloha Dried Green Juice

I’ve learned a few things about traveling. How to travel in a carry-on for 7+ days, what food works for me traveling (protein), and what I always need to get on a plane (anti-anxiety meds and lots of water). I was given a few packets of ALOHA The Daily Good Dried Green Juice packets to [...]

Aromatherapy Associates Rose Infinity Moisturizer

  Rose can be a persnickety little scent. There are some that give off scent like a tease – just a little at a time. There are others that have you trying to cover your noses. With rose-scent products you don’t know what you are getting. It always possible you open an awaited package and [...]

{4.5.14} Le Weekend

As you read this I will be flying the friendly skies to California. I’m headed there to run a race with my Hawaii girls Amber and Erika. I was planning on running the half-marathon, but because of this crazy cold winter I wasn’t able to run outside as much so I emailed the race committee [...]
