Wrinkle Eraser

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons, I love that cozy feeling that I get from cuddling up on the couch with a good book and crackling logs in the chimney (or a fake fireplace app, for those of us without a fireplace).  Living in Los Angeles, it’s funny to see how excited people get…

Scrub a Dub

I’ve always had a low maintenance approach to my skin care routine, feeling that I was just blessed with good genes.  (Go bar hopping until 4am and wake up with a hangover?  Why not, my skin is blessed.)  Little did I know that I was just being fooled by being twenty-something.  About a month after…

Happy New Year!

    I am so excited that it is 2012, and I have a really good feeling about it.  Dougall and I had a wonderful staycation during our holiday experiment; I feel completely rested and ready for the new year.  I even made some resolutions that I plan to keep!  The first one is to…

Bobbi Brown’s All Over Bronzing Gel

Hi guys, I hope that you’re having a beautiful November! I am loving the change of seasons so much. Warm gold, orange, and red leaves seem to be everywhere. I love the smells and sounds of a blazing, crackling fireplace, and a warm soup on the stove. The only thing I don’t love, however, is…

stange beauty inventions

Hey guys, here’s a link to a very cute article about strange beauty inventions. My friend Rachel sent it to me and I thought that you might enjoy it. My personal favorite is the toast and jam shower set. I mean c’mon, a toast-shaped shower sponge? On a similar note, I’ve been recently obsessed with…

Searching for a good Sunscreen…

  So I’ve been testing out a couple of natural sunscreens and have come to a few realizations: a.Sunscreen with a super-high SPF can make you look like a pasty, white ghost. b.It’s almost impossible to wear an organic sunscreen without looking like a shiny/oily greaseball. c.I’m kind of practical (read:cheap) and prefer not to…

Safe Sun for Summer

Have you guys heard that your sunblock could cause cancer? When I first read this, I practically fell off my chair. I have religiously practiced “safe sun” for as long as I can remember, applying sunblock every day. Then the other day I read an article stating that some common ingredients in sunscreen (such as…

Our new place

We finally moved into our new home! Dougall and I had been looking to buy a new place for well over a year in LA, which is way longer than we expected it to take. Who knew there were so many people in Los Angeles? We made four previous offers and got outbid on each…

Kissing Potion

So I have to admit, I’m kind of a lip balm junkie. Ever since I was a kid and tried cherry Chap Stick, I loved the way that it made my lips feel smooth and slippery. Picture it: I was in upstate New York with my family, where we had gone for a New Year’s…

Happy New Year!

Hey guys, I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve! My husband and I cooked a great meal, had a nice bottle of wine, and worked on our vision boards. Alright fine, we bought most of it ready-made at Whole Foods and drank more than one bottle of wine. Nonetheless, it was really…
