Lipstick Challenge Day 12: Lip Moisturizer

malin+goetz

Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer $12.00

This stuff by Malin + Goetz is a lip balm, obviously. Its clear, has no taste, no fragrance and is pretty basic right down to its label (which I love). But what gets me about this and gets me to pull this out to show my lip balm enthusiast friends, is the consistency. Folks, wait- its a gel. A gel! Its so cool really, so space age-y. Read More

Tangentially related to beauty

This is so obviously not necessary with it being winter and all, but I can’t stop thinking about all of the lounging I could do with this towel and how seriously cute and stylish the whole lounging would be. Amiright? Read More

The Perfect Red

The other day I had a thought, a thought which made me pause because I knew it was so important I had to remember. Every time I don’t paint my nails red, I regret it. Totally regret it. Read More

Just like science class only sleeker

This water bottle is quite the piece of art. Water=beauty, therefore this is a completely necessary beauty purchase. Amiright? The only issue I’m having is which color,  I’m crushing this blush version super hard.

Super cute and pretty little things from around the interwebs this week. Simply click on the description to be taken to something super sweet.

Late to the game, but still on board! 

A TO-DO list upgrade. Do you think this means that my list will actually get done? (This would also obviously make a great last minute stocking stuffer).

So smart! 

If I could get away with this Tree for the holidays, I totally would! 

My neighbor, the amazing John Lee, makes delicious real truffels, so since were spending Xmas together, maybe I’ll try to sneak these past him. 

After my most recent move to the Second City, I wish I saw this post while I hunted for a new desk.

Love, Love, Love this outfit. I think I just figured out what to do with my very long black skirt. 

Hope your having a great pre-holiday weekend!

Smell like the Ocean and Thank Me Later

FIREBIRD: Saltwater Perfume Oil  and Lotion

$9.00 and  $8.00

More Info HERE

Saltwater Perfume Oil

I was immediately drawn to Firebird Bath & Beauty and their perfume oils because I love roll ons. I initially got some samples from their sample program, Saltwater, Honey and WoodsmokeVinilla. I was instantly in love with Saltwater. This scent described as, “a non-floral, non-tropical ocean scent consisting of marine notes, cedar and myrtle, that softens and mellows on the skin and becomes ethereal and almost haunting. Definitely unisex, definitely unusual.”

To me it smells like clean without that cloying clean scent that is often used in so much fragrance. Describing perfume is very hard, but this scent is amazing. I have shared it with numerous friends who have also fallen in love with it. It has universal appeal and smells great. I basically cannot stop sniffing my wrist.

Great price, great scent, perfect roll on for your purse. This is a no brainer gift for yourself or your best friend.

Saltwater Lotion

The lotion has a very subtle saltwater scent, which is great for layering and having the scent last all day, but what really stands out about this product is the lotion it self.

It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin super soft. I hate body lotion after the shower because its one more step, but this absorbs like a dream so I actually don’t avoid this step, and it leaves the best subtle scent behind. It has “avocado oil for a a luxurious feel, shea butter to protect and soothe, jojoba and grapeseed oils for weightless emollience without that greasy feeling. Aloe vera hydrates and nourishes and silk amino acids provide a silky smooth afterfeel. Loaded with antioxidant vitamins and 96% natural.”

I keep this on my desk too and slather it on all day. The clean scent is amazing and I really can’t get enough of it, but the way it leaves my hands so soft is worth going back for more. Now if only Firebird Bath and Beauty made a laundry soap, hand soap and counter top cleaner in this scent!
