Beauty Buzz / Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter

As the fall leaves tumble into the days of winter, one thing is guaranteed to happen—dry skin. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan. In fact, I hate it. This is when I bust out my beloved body butters. One that I have happily added to my winter skin regime is the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Be Comforted Warm Apple Crisp. I really wish this was a scratch-and-sniff kind of post, because this stuff smells amaze! But does it work? Read more

My Beauty Favorites / Burt’s Bees

You’ve all heard the phrase “the bee’s knees” haven’t you? It became popular in the 1920’s as a way to describe something as being excellent. That’s kind of how I feel about these Burt’s Bees products. To me, they are the bee’s knees. And they are perfect year-round. But, I especially love them during the fall and winter seasons. Here are this month’s beauty favorites. Read more

And I’m going to give you a chance to win your very own autographed copy! Read more

Beauty Buzz / Urban Decay (Eyes)

I wouldn’t say I was obsessed with Urban Decay…OK…maybe a little bit. Just a tiny bit. Can you blame me? They are pretty amazing. I was just invited to a little blogger preview last month where I was able to get my hands on a few of their newest products. I was in UD heaven! I wanted to share a few of them with you today. Let’s start with the eyes and a palette everyone was lusting after. Read more

Beauty Buzz / WEN Cleansing Conditioner


We’ve all seen the WEN Hair Care commercials with founder Chaz Dean—haven’t we? He’s a Hollywood celebrity hair stylist with a booming salon. Seems like an awesome product. But his promise of “Say Goodbye to Lather™” has me a little worried. I mean…no lather? I guess I had to try the WEN Cleansing Conditioner out for myself. I was sent a sample and put it to the test.

Beauty Buzz / ColourPop In Bloom


I have a little blogger confession. Sometimes, I have a little bit of a problem reviewing beauty products on time and in season. For example, I was gifted this ColourPop In Bloom collection ($39) by Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg in the spring. It is now the middle of summer and I’m just getting around to trying it out. Oopsie…I don’t really follow makeup trends anyways, so I guess it’s no biggie. These shades are always in season for me!

Beauty Buzz / Block Island Organics


Finding the best skincare isn’t always the easiest thing. That’s why I love introducing you to different beauty products. Hopefully, you’ll find one that’s a perfect fit for you and your skin. Maybe this summer it will be Block Island Organics. They recently reached out and sent me their Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser, Organic Revitalizing Night Cream, and Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 to try out. And even gave me a discount code to share with you (no I won’t make a penny from it).  Read more

Beauty Buzz / RITUALS True Happiness


In this world of blogging, I love getting a chance to try out new beauty products. Especially, those that were created with purpose. RITUALS, whose collections are based on Eastern traditions, is also based on the idea that “happiness can be found in the smallest of things. We transform your everyday routines into moments of indulgence by means of beautiful and luxurious products.” I was sent their True Happiness Gift Set and I can see it making a great gift for the beauty lover in your life.

Beauty Buzz / CLEAN Perfume

Think about if for a second, how much does your nose and it’s ability to smell play a part in your every day life? A beautiful scent can bring you immediate joy and pleasure. I know when I smell something that reminds me of my childhood, I’m all smiles. And unpleasant scents…well…we’ll just leave them at unpleasant. I had a chance to try out two new products from CLEAN that left me smiling. Read more

Beauty Buzz / Yardley London Nourishing Elements Artisan Soap


It’s beauty confession time. For the past few years, I’ve used nothing but liquid body washes when it comes to bathing. I haven’t used bar soap in a really long time. OK, not the craziest confession, but it sounds weird admitting that. All we used growing up was bar soap. In fact, I don’t even know why I stopped using it in the first place. Well, looks like it may be back in my bathing routine since Yardley London Nourishing Elements Artisan Soap sent me a few bars to try out. Read more
