valentine LOVE

February 5, 2015


 thursday happy to you my pops o’lolli!

i hope your week has been full of sugar and sweet.

do you do valentine’s day?

i’ve never been much of a hardcore fan for all things red and artificially flavored {both in taste + sentiment,} but i’m not one to turn down presents of pink, blush, and the candy-coated.

here are a few valentine’s gifts {you have a little over a week} that are sure to dazzle that one you’re sweet on.


nothing feels softer, more snuggly, or better on your skin {at least in public} than wildfox clothing. i swear they use newborn kittens in their fleecy, heather-terried sweatshirts. this wildfox cozy is a perfect cover-up for chilly, february days and nights.

i’m also digging this fun kate spade clutch big enough for a cell phone, keys and ID.


for the gourmand in your life, these le creuset ramekins would bake the prettiest valentine tarts.


and while we’re on the subject of food, if anyone wants to make me this cake from gimmesomeoven i won’t say “no.”


who can pass up a pink purse?

valentine’s day or just an early harbinger for spring, this abigale tote from big buddha makes the prettiest accessory for any shoulder.


this time of year i start moving away from the spicier, darker fragrances of fall + winter; the new diana vreeland perfume, simply divine, has a healthy dose of tuberose and jasmine, but is balanced with a smidge of nutmeg, so it’s still appropriate for the season, and doesn’t have you stinking like a easter basket….yet.

d194750fe416e13a77d40fd2820c2d7f if somber weather is getting you down, this coffee-table book from furbish studio is a lovely antidote to the february clouds and drizzle. isa_love_potion

and finally, if you’re looking for love or secretly admiring someone from afar, this love potion from catbirdnyc might be the answer to your romantic woes.

wishing you a love-filled thursday!



February 4, 2015

one of the many disappointing aspects of this pregnancy has been the elusive “glow” so promised to me by fellow mommies.

i have the opposite of a glow; it’s more like a dull, pea-soup green hue, chaperoned with puffy, capillary-popped bags beneath my eyes.

i’m the walking, talking, barfing star of an after-school bulimia special—although who am i kidding..at 38 years old t’would be “night school” in my case.

i’ve ransacked my local sephora in search for any sort of fix, salvation or amnesty for my case of the uglies; to no avail.

but in my most recent birchbox delivery, god aka the u.p.s. man, blessed me with a gamechanging product:

jar (1 of 1)

the turmeric antioxidant radiance mask by juara.

this is not the first time singing in the choir of the all-holy turmeric; i’ve praised turmeric’s holy + mighty anti-inflammatory properties before; unfortunately i can’t keep my turmeric juice down these days and miss the dynamic boost it gave my system.

the juara mask makes a fine, game-changing stand-in. within the first use i immediately saw and felt a difference in my skin’s texture and clarity.

my muddled and bloated face transformed into a tighter, smoother {like “hey honey feel my face!!-smoothe,”} and sparklier complexion.

i’ve been now leaving the mask on at night {not in the directions, mind you} and loving the morning results.

this time-o-life has made me even more ridiculous/obnoxious about the products and chemicals i expose myself to, but i am rest assured that everything in the juara line is safe.

disappointed with the current skincare offerings, juara skincare was created by four westerners with asian ancestry who realized that there is never a one-stop solution when it comes to concern for the skin.

using an east-meets-west and traditional blended with modern philosophy, juara skincare prides itself in delivering high quality results from time-tested ingredients and state-of-the-art technology.

certified cruelty-free, juara products are 100% vegetarian, paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, gluten-free, free of harsh chemicals and artificial colorant free; i feel safe and ethical using juara.

hope you’re wednesday is game-changing too m’loves.
