Hello again….


If you are a daily reader of the blog you will have likely noticed that I have not posted in over two weeks. I am so sorry. Part of it was vacation and other life things mainly I needed a break from being connected at the hip to my computer. The other thing thats been going on is that every beauty product that has graced my desk has not jumped out at me. Nothing was super awesome or blog-worthy. I had nothing to write about. It was so hot, my makeup no matter what I did slid off my face and my hair was a big puffy mess. But the temperatures are cooling and I’m feeling the beauty products once again and I’m armed with an arsenal of new products to share. Stay tuned because I’m back!

Whatever your situation you have to check out Schone Bridal located in Gowanus, Brooklyn (incidentally my favorite place in Brooklyn). Not only are the designs amazing, romantic and pretty much perfection, but everything is handmade locally in Brooklyn. Amazing. Continue reading



I am not that easily bullied into buying products. I do my research before hand and always have a clear idea why I am in a particular store, this holds especially true with regard to beauty products. So a few weeks ago I was surprised when a gently nudge from a Sephora employee prompted me to deviate from my shopping list and into some new territory. Continue reading

More Glow-y in an Instant

Pacifica coconut crushed pearl bronzing body butter Review

I’ve been obsessed with finding Josie Maran’s Model Citizen Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter with Radiance, as a cure for my pale-ish legs in anticipation of summer and more importantly summer weddings. The problem though is that it’s sold OUT. Fail. Epic fail. There are other leg shimmer things out there, but the Josie Maran one really stole my heart. That was until I got a nice surprise in my Ipsy bag this month. Continue reading
