The World’s Best Mayo Free Potato Salad Recipe

The World’s Best Mayo Free Potato Salad Recipe

Bold claim, but one bite and we think you'll agree! Between picnics and barbecues, potato salad is pretty much ubiquitous during summer. Traditional potato salads are mayo-based, but I think sometimes keeping things simple really is the best way. Nothing against mayo, but mayo-free versions give other flavors a chance to shine. This potato salad has a bright acidic tang…

The Lipstick League – week of 8.10.15

Question of the Week: What’s your favourite highlighter? Answer: I know they're are a lot of new and amazing highlighters out there now (Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector, I'm looking at you!) But I'm a NARS Copacabana girl through and through. This pretty pearly pink shade comes in an Illuminator formula (a liquid), but I like it in…

Essie Summer 2015 and Essie Neon 2015 swatches and review

One of my favorite things about the lazy days of summer is the music. Something about the heat just makes tunes seep into your bones, makes the dance moves just a little more fluid, those lyrics seem just all the more perfect. Essie has two summer collections that capture both the lazy days of summer and the perfection of those…

NARS Fall 2015 collection swatches and review

I am dreaming of fall. You’d think that the reason is the 100⁰ summer temperature of my California desert home. You’d think that…but you’d be wrong. The reason I can’t seem to get fall off my mind is solely due to the NARS fall 2015 collection. It’s the first fall launch to cross my vanity this year, and I have…
Nail Butter review

Nail Butter review

I’ve always been hard on my nails, but the past few months have been ridiculous. I decided grow a sunflower garden in my backyard, and spent many hours preparing the soil, planting, weeding, watering...mostly without gloves. Yes, I know, what was I thinking? My results: a bunch of flowers just starting to bloom, and the most raggedy, dry, thick cuticles…

Founded to honor the owner's grandmother who battled breast cancer for over 10 years, Acure donates to a wide variety of charities that do wonderful things, like providing free mammograms to at risk women, planting trees and…

That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 8.3.15 Question of the Week: Name the ONE blush you find yourself reaching for the most right now. Answer: It's gotta be coral! That's my favorite coral blushes shown above. And the one I've been grabbing all week is an oldie but a goodie: MAC Stereo Rose. (It's on the right,…

Introstem Skincare review

Two Worlds Collide and A Star Is Born If two worlds were set to collide, we could only hope they would be the worlds of luxury and science. The price tags of each are quite high, but then so too are the benefits. For example, the relatively new world of stem cell research has opened a new realm on many…

First Aid Beauty Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser review

I love makeup and all of the lovely things it can do. But when I'm home, I want it gone and I want my skin to be clean and soft and fresh. I want to see me, not my makeup. Thankfully, there is a product to remove my makeup while conditioning my skin: First Aid Beauty Milk Oil Conditioning Cleanser…
