Admittedly, I do not live a very holistic life. Sure, I try to drink green juice sometimes and focus on positive energy. But then I fall off the wagon and eat potato chips and spend three months barely going to the gym. Well, with the introduction of Sphatika to my life, I can safely say I'll be focusing on a holistic, sensory approach to wellness going forward.
By now you know that The Beauty of Life is a big fan of Lather (catch Jamie’s recent body wash post here). Each of their products is thoughtfully made with the highest quality plant or food based ingredients, and nearly all products are paraben and sulfate free. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, you must get yourself to their flagship retail store -- it’s what I like to call my happy place.
The moment I learned about the new Essie Neons 2013 Collection, my heart was all aflutter. I'm a sucker for bright nail polish come warmer months, and this collection certainly delivers. A few of the colors from the collection stood out for me, and I decided to create a manicure with all of them simultaneously! Check out my top picks.
I’ve searched high and low, around the world, and for about six months for an eye cream that contains SPF. My search finally led me to Dermalogica Total Eye Care with SPF 15. I’m religious about sunscreen and wear it every day, in part because I’m afraid of melanoma but mostly because I’m vain and I want to prevent wrinkles and age spots. The sun’s harmful UV rays cause 90 percent of aging signs, especially around the eyes -- that’s because the skin around the eyes is ten times thinner than the skin on the face.
