Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms

Revlon has done it again for me. I’m a huge fan of their Colorburst lip line. I can’t get enough of these adorable lippies. My favorite has been Raspberry Pie. I’m on my third or fourth tube. I go through this stuff rather quickly. It gives me a bright lip and is super moisturizing. Now, [...]

Travel Diary: Desert Renewal in Phoenix, Arizona – Day 2

The best way to appreciate a desert renewal consists of being inside and outdoors. This renewal included yoga, hiking, spa treatments, and meditation. The Centre for Well-Being at The Phoenician is located at the center of the property and with up-close and breathtaking views and access to Camelback Mountain. The Centre is a respite from [...]

Wellness Wednesday: UP24 by Jawbone

If getting fit and healthy was part of your new year’s resolution I highly recommend the UP24 by Jawbone. I received the band as one of my birthday presents from my husband. Let me say I specifically requested the UP24. I sent an email saying “I want this for my birthday.” I first heard about the [...]

Travel Diary: Desert Renewal in Phoenix, Arizona – Day 1

Phoenix, Arizona is mostly known for its summer heat, but Phoenix is looking exceptionally lovely today as we are dealing with the Polar Vortex. I would rather be in the desert, riding on a highway viewing mountains without snow, and being able to stand-up paddleboard on Saguaro Lake. The sixth largest city in the country [...]

WEI Beauty Pass the Hydration, Please?

I hope everyone is having a lovely new year so far. It was great to take a few weeks off, visit family, and not work. Just being with them, fully present was so much fun. It was a great gift to myself.  I’m excited to say I rocked my 5-day whole foods eating cleanse. In [...]

Reading Pretty: Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin

Happier at Home. A perfect book for the start of a new year. But how do you make that true when it’s July and nothing seems to be going right? It’s simple. It’s a choice. That’s how I’m looking at another year to begin again. One of my big complaints is the weather here in [...]

Happy Birthday to Me and Thankful for Another Year

As I have gotten older I realize the years seem to speed buy. When I was a kid it seemed as though I would never be an adult. I know you understand. It’s like where has the time gone. I’m thankful for another year full of love, laughter, fun, travel, and beauty. I start my calendar [...]

Chanel No. 5 Intense Bath Oil

  Lately my insomnia has reared her ugly head. I go to bed yawning and ready for sleep, but at 4 a.m. on the dot I’m wide awake. I know I’m only getting 5-6 hours and for me that is not enough. I try to will myself to go back to sleep, but 30 minutes [...]

{11.22.13} Le Weekend

I’m currently listening to Christmas music. I know it’s early, but it is the most wonderful time of year. We don’t go crazy at Christmas in my family because you have to live after Christmas. We exchange names and it is so easy. Because of that, I’m working on great holiday guides that will post [...]

Agave Baby! FarmHouse Fresh Agave Nectar Body Oil

“Your body is bangin baby I love it when you flaunt it, time to give it to daddy, now tell me how you want it!” ~ How Do You Want It? by Tupac I can’t seem to get enough of this song right now. I don’t know why I keep it singing it, but it’s [...]

{11.15.13} – Le Weekend

Has the week been long for you? It seems it has been extra long for me. We are still in contractor Hades and although we are finally moving along it seems as though November is flying by. Where did it go? Did you see that registration is up for the 2014 Paris Beauty Tour? I [...]

TOCCA Stella Hand Cream for a Blistery Fall Day

Who knew November would feel like January. I thought I was still in fall this week, but it seems the weather thinks it’s already winter. With that I have to prep and plan my moisture attack now. I hate to say this, but I think this winter is going to be brutal if we are [...]

Le Weekend

Has the week been long for you? It seems it has been extra long for me. I know we gained an hour of sleep, but part of me still feels like I need an additional hour. I’m having lunch a good friend at one of my favorite hangouts in DC, Union Market. We both love [...]

S.W. Basics Exfoliant for Glowing Skin

The past week has been stressful. Part of our house flooded from a busted pipe and dealing with the home improvement fun has me out of my normal skincare routine. My skin used to be able to bounce back quickly from stress, now it takes a little longer. To get the luster back I’m pulling [...]

I Want to Learn Blackjack

I had a blast last month in Las Vegas with my aunt. We stayed at a fab hotel (more to come next week), ate delicious meals and for the first time in my life I played the slots. This isn’t usually my thing. I was surprised to discover that it was actually fun for me [...]

Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil Has Changed My Life

I’ve been lurking and slowing acquiring beauty products from Tata Harper. It started with her Aromatic Bedtime Treatment that I applied behind my ears and to my temples. I then progressed to a few of the skincare treatments. Tata’s products are all natural and actually work for me. I needed a treat. A pick me [...]

Adding Steamcream to the Beauty Routine

It’s officially fall. The past few weekends have been busy with driving around the area to apple pick and visiting wineries. I have to admit I have a love/hate relationship with living in the area. A huge part of me wants to move to California so I can eat outside over 200 days a year [...]

Qatar Airways: Delights to Fly For

Dining at 30,000 feet has changed at Qatar Airways. I recently spent an evening testing Qatar Airways new business class menu. Qatar is a one of the few five star airlines in the world. Have you heard of them? Probably not, but you will. Doha is hosting the 2022 World Cup and Qatar is going [...]

My Home Office Has New Light

I’m in the process of tearing out decor magazines, pinning office ideas, and wanting my home office to be a space of peace, productive creativity, and beauty. I collect lots of paper and I’m trying to organize, weed out, and only keep what’s necessary so I can only have beautiful items sitting on my desk. [...]

Dolce & Gabbana Desire Fragrance

Dolce & Gabbana’s Desire has been in the fragrance arsenal for a few months. I don’t understand why I’ve waited so long to write about it. I love this scent. It has notes of Indian tuberose, bergamot, sandalwood and musk. The packaging doesn’t hurt and I found myself wanting to dive so deep in this [...]
