S.W. Basics Exfoliant for Glowing Skin

SW Basics Exfoliant

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 [...]

Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil Has Changed My Life

Tata Harper Revitalizing Body Oil

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 [...]

Dolce & Gabbana Desire Fragrance

D&G 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 [...]

MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Extravagant Mascara

Makeup Forever Mascara

It’s officially fall. The mornings are brisk in these parts. As much as I love seasons, my heart is already missing the summer heat. My face isn’t missing the sweat I will say that. I’m excited to be able to wear tinted moisturizer, a darker lip, and tons of mascara. I love a va-va-voom lash. [...]

For the Love of Soap

Nudo Soaps

I’m back from a glorious two weeks in Hawaii. The weather was great every single day and reaffirms that I need to live in a warmer climate. I love fall, but I know what comes after. Winter. The thought of buying a new North Face coat is not high on my list. I can’t even [...]

Le Weekend

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate

I made it to Kauai and trying to adjust from being awake over 24 hours. There is a six-hour time difference between Hawaii and D.C. and I plan to just go with it. My weekend will include participating in the Kauai Half-Marathon events, enjoying the beach, reading, working and spending time with good friends. I [...]

Jo Malone’s Peony & Blush Suede Cologne

Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede

I am blessed to live in an area with some of the most amazing yoga teachers. I try to support the various teachers, but I do have a fondness for a few. One of my favorite fellow Sagittarius teachers happens to be scent obsessed like me. Post yoga class it’s always a discuss on our [...]

Le Weekend

Mademoiselle C Movie

TGIF. It never fails. The week before I head out of town is always busy. I am not crying beauty tears because I know I’m blessed. I’m packing this weekend for two weeks in Hawaii for my annual end of summer visit. Yes, August/September in Hawaii is forever penciled in my calendar – Blue Crush [...]

Reading Pretty: The Whole Frommage by Kathe Lison

Whole Frommage

I remember the first time I had real “cheese.” I had just been dropped off to my apartment in Paris to start a study abroad program. Mr. Gerard was kind of enough to bring me a sandwich and water. In his brusque, but sweet voice he said “Jooo-leee-aaa, the restaurants don’t open until 9pm . [...]
