Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candles: 2 for $22

bath and body works 3 wick candles italian2 Bath & Body Works 3 Wick Candles: 2 for $22

At Christmastime, I agonized over what to get my son’s daycare teachers. There are 12 of them – and even though he has his two main teachers, they all have interaction with him and take excellent care of him. So I needed to buy 12 gifts to show my appreciation, without breaking the bank. $10 each seemed doable, except that most gifts under $10 are utter crap and you’d rather give nothing at all than give someone a $10 junk present.

After almost settling on an uninspired gift (it was so blah, I can’t even remember what it was), Bath & Body Works had a sale on its 3-Wick Candles: 2 for $22. The 3 Wick Candles are a good size (14.5 oz) and usually $20 each, so this was a steal. I snatched up 12 candles in holiday scents for $132—and saved $108! It’s true that I went over my $10 per gift limit (only by $1), but it was okay because I also scored free shipping—and the candles conveniently showed up on my doorstep in mint condition. So it all evened out. But most important, the teachers LOVED their candles and raved for months about how wonderful they smell and how long they last.

So why am I running my mouth and telling you this old story? Well, Bath & Body Works is having the same sale now and I wanted to share the great news.

Mother’s Day is coming up. It’s also prime time for baby and bridal showers right about now. Better yet, why not treat yourself? You deserve it. There are a lot of new spring/summer scents that sound amazing—like Gelato, Lemon Mint Leaf, Garden Bouquet, Peach Bellini, Lakeside, Caribbean Escape and Sicilian Orange—to name a few.

Get free shipping with any purchase of $50 or more. Enter promo code BURN50—but, hurry, because that deal is only good today. The 2 for $22, 3-Wick Candles deal ends on April 21, 2013. No coupon needed for that.

The Buzz in Home Fragrance: Nest Candles

nest beeswax The Buzz in Home Fragrance: Nest Candles

Nest Beeswax & Whipped Cream Scented Candle is the bees knees.

Light the wick and take a whiff…beeswax accord, essence of whipped cream, steamed rice, honey and cognac unite to lace your space with a warm and exotic perfume that defies description. This surprising marriage of fragrances is a breath of fresh air and a welcome alternative to the generic ‘holiday’ home fragrances that seem to be popping up on every shelf this time of year.

At $32, the 8 ounce candle costs a pretty penny. But it smells divine and burns for 50+ hours, so you can consider it money well-spent. If the price seems a somewhat steep, drop hints to your honey. On the other hand, if you’ve got cash to burn – take my advice and pick up a colony of these candles!

Nest Candles are available at Neiman Marcus.

So Fresh and So Clean, Clean

elizabethW+Perfume+Diffuser So Fresh and So Clean, Clean
I recently discovered elizabethW, a brand of exquisite and original collections for bath, body, and interiors. Their Perfume Diffuser in Citrus Vervain has turned my house into a home – freshening the air with a sophisticated blend of fragrance oils and natural ingredients. After a tiring day at work, I am welcomed home by extracts of star ruby grapefruit, mandarin, and lime peel entwined with lemon scented verbena leaves.

The oil is bottled in a lovely Italian glass container, accompanied by reeds in their own linen pouch. Both are packaged in a hand-tied ribboned box – which is so darned pretty, you’ll hate to toss it out.

The Perfume Diffuser is a thoughtful housewarming gift – especially for a friend who has small children or pets and typically eschews candles.

In addition to Citrus Vervain, the Perfume Diffuser is available in Citrus Spice, Lavender, Leaves, Lilac, Magnolia, Neroli Chamomile, Rose, Sweet Tea, Tuberose, and Vetiver.
