back to our regularly scheduled consumership….

December 3, 2015


as nice as the response was to giving tuesday, i still received requests for a “goodnite irene holiday gift guide.”

ask and you shall receive, you insatiable, credit card maxing, commerce-happy, everyday-santa’s.

so if you just can’t bear to show up empty-handed to the ugly christmas sweater party, here are a few gifts i think are swell:

254480_114739737_product_1024x1024for the dog and book lover these jack russell bookends from biscuit home will be adored; also available in rosey the poodle.


for the champs lover in your life, add a little more bubble to theirs with personalized veuve clicquot stationery from minnie and emma.


and how cool are these smeg toasters?

this is definitely over-the-top, and most people don’t need a new toaster….but they will dig setting this out on their kitchen counters come christmas morning.

jamand who will pass up a gourmet peanut butter and jam collection from blackberry farm?

who will pass up ANYTHING from blackberry farm?


i was given these japanese hand towels last year as a thank you gift.

who knew hand towels could bring such joy?

they are a gorgeous addition to our powder room, and i can attest a lovely gift to receive.


for the hippie in your life these smudge sticks make for a fun and unusual present.


and this beauty dust from moon juice is an outside-of-the-box gift for your beauty product junkie.

for that manly man in your life these matterhorn glasses will make their gallant, after-work scotch appear even more strapping with its carved crystal alps.

so there you go…a little gift giving guide courtesy of goodnite irene….

i must admit babbling about stocking stuffers and beauty dust given yesterday’s tragedy seems vulgar and off tempo to say the least.

at the end of the day the real gift we can give each other is our kindness, our attention, and empathy.

love to all,


RMS sale!—-green is the new black!

November 20, 2015



RMS beauty is having a 20% sale off its entire site today!

crazy cakes?!

RMS beauty is responsible for many of my bottom of the jar, desert island staples:


i’ve been using rose-marie swift’s “un” cover-up for close to a decade now. nothing compares to this concealer. it doesn’t cake, dry out, or glob up in the ball of the eye {pretty i know.} thank goodness this is not in short supply, because if the house was on fire? i might grab my “un” cover-up and those old photographs may just have to incinerate.


the buriti bronzer is another one of mommy’s favorites. no shimmer, no donatella verasace orange, it’s a week in montauk in one, little pot. the buriti oil, “the highest amount of vitamin a and beta-carotene known to man”-their words, makes this bronzer blend seamlessly into the skin. i always get asked if i’ve been in the sun when i wear this bronzer—as if?


i keep this organic lip + skin balm on my nightstand. cuticles, lips, and under eyes get the evening, pre-bedtime smear. come morning my face and nails are less sandbox dry.


this morning i purchased the beauty oil. i’ve never used it before so i will report back. it has the same buriti oil found in the bronzer. buriti is kind of the new, rockstar anti-oxidant out on the market for its filtering and absorbing capabilities of cancer causing sun rays.

so off you go!

happy shopping.

let me know what you ordered and how you like it.

remember the code is : GREENFRIDAY

all of RMS beauty products are GMO-free, cruelty-free and ethically created.

RMS beauty products are either organic or wildcrafted, depending upon which is safer….

see you on the other side of sunday m’loves.

the {holi}STICK– sweet smelling sweat…

November 19, 2015

deo1 (1 of 1)

my freak show dogmatism for products, toxin + cruelty free, often triggers the following question:

what deodorant do you trust?

teaching back to back classes, frequently in the close confines of a spin room, one should practice proper hygiene. many of the natural deodorants on the market just plain, suck. they’re as effective as hydrating in said spin class with a vanilla milkshake. in the past i’ve found soapwalla and kai deodorant keep me just as sweet-smelling and dry as any drugstore, beagle-tested, aluminum-embodying brand. unfortunately soapwalla contains baking soda, a common irritant for the underarm, and i feel rather sacrilegious smelling like a maui sunset, in the middle of november, when i’m wearing kai–it smells divine, but is quite pungent.

that’s why i’m happy to have found agent nateur n03 deodorant. made from organic coconut oil, avocado butter, raw organic honey, and essentials oils of lavender + eucalpytus, agent nateur is a food based deodorant that smells beautiful, for both men and women, and naturally kills any offensive underarm odors; even in the sweatiest of cardio sessions you come out smelling like a Canyon Ranch quiet room.

you can buy from directly agent nateur, from spirit beauty lounge {only in the 19oz size, but they give free samples!} or at beauty habit {fun holiday shopping here.}

do you have a favorite natural deodorant?
