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 [...]

{4.18.14} Le Weekend

This weekend I find myself in another hotel, but this one is closer to home. I will be on a quick stay-cation to reset and regroup before heading out again next weekend. It’s all good because I’m bringing a few of my favorite things of the week. Thrive by Arianna Huffington. Arianna is the creator [...]

{4.10.14} Le Weekend

My loves, my favorite items of the week happen to be products I discovered while in California. I had an entirely different le weekend ready to go, but I’m so excited about these beauty products I couldn’t help myself but give you the beauty duty for the weekend. Happy Weekend! Bisous! Olavie Antioxidant Hand Cream. This [...]

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 [...]

Partner Spotlight: Frugaa

Lately I have no desire to actually visit stores to go shopping outside of Target. I have been doing the majority of my shopping needs online. I have a friend who does all her shopping online. She hates stores. So with online shopping comes the discussion of how to save online. Yes, I’ve learned that [...]

Oregon ScientificAroma Diffuser and Sound Therapy Clock

I’ve always written how I’m not the best sleeper. It started in my late twenties, geared up and went nuts in my thirties, and miraculously with a lot of work on my part has gotten better. Why? I realize my triggers. I can’t be on the computer, iPad, iPhone, and any technology by a certain [...]

Travel Diary: Devon Valley Hotel in Cape Winelands, South Africa

I traveled to Cape Winelands in 2010 before heading to the World Cup in other parts of South Africa. It was one of those bucket list trips, but I never posted the photos or wrote what made it so memorable. Growing up in Houston I always knew that my life would be very different than [...]

Travel Talk: Palm Springs Spa Infographic

I’m headed to California on Friday for a race and to cover a few hotels and spas, but I’m really bummed now that I am not making it to Palm Springs to cover their spas. I need to plan a trip back to California to experience all of the Palm Springs Marriott properties spas. It [...]

Reading Pretty: The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson

The Idea of Him by Holly Peterson is the perfect book for a beach getaway. At times I wanted to yell and scream at Allie the main character. The book’s underlying theme of wanting something you know isn’t really good for you, but you are trying to make it fit. I was recently speaking with [...]

Roja Dove Amber Aoud

There are scents that make me smile and scents that transform me, move me, and bring tears to my eyes. That’s how I feel smelling Roja Dove Amber Aoud. A brief background of Roja Dove. His scents are only available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman in the U.S. You can always cross the pond [...]

{3.28.14} Le Weekend

I feels like spring. I know I shouldn’t be so happy, but 50 degree temperatures make this girl very happy. Although, the forecast call for rain, I don’t care as long as I don’t have to wear a puffy coat. I looked at the calendar and I’m like where has this year gone. It’s flying [...]

Feasting Pretty: Buvette Gastrothèque in New York City

The beauty of Twitter is when one breakfast appointment cancels another one takes its place. I went to New York last week and a planned breakfast meeting was canceled the night before. I put on Twitter if anyone wanted to have breakfast with me. One of my followers messaged and the next thing I know [...]
