3 Things:  Winter Beauty

3 Things: Winter Beauty

I have a completely different beauty/skincare routine in the winter than I do the rest of the year. I live in New England and our winters are BRUTAL. With the heat blasting and the wood stove constantly burning, my oily skin can become painfully dry. I'm considering creating a Scrooge McDuck-ian vault in my basement and filling it with body…

Clean Reserve Perfume Review: Amber Saffron, Skin and Sueded Oud

Bergamot, saffron, incense oil and night blooming jasmine—delightfully witchy ingredients for casting a love spell, or eau de parfums from Clean’s new collection, Clean Reserve? Actually, it’s all of the above, because Amber Saffron, Sueded Oud and Skin are pure olfactory magic.

Flannel Pajamas – Whiskey Cocktail Recipe

Here we are in the new year, trying our best to eat healthy and get fit after the indulgent season of everything delicious.

Including my thoughts on the Wei Mung Bean Stress Relieving Soothing Mask... Question of the Week: What are your feelings about the current sheet mask craze? Have you ever tried one?

3 Things: Netflix and Chill

Bonus points if you got that reference... I'm in my wintery cocoon and typically only leave the house on weekends if I absolutely have to. Which means NETFLIX! I will pretty much watch any and everything, but after a while you kind of start to run out of things you would willingly choose to watch. Which brings us to this…

FabFitFun Winter 2015 review

Something to make everyone Squee The idea of subscription boxes has always been right up my alley: give them money and you get a box of surprises throughout the year.

3 Things: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

It's the middle of January and Jack Frost has descended upon us and he is nipping at my nose...and other parts I shan't mention here. IT'S COLD! Bitterly, horribly cold. My wood stove is working overtime and at this point I think I've become more fleece than person. I'm pretty sure I heard a Yeti cry from the woods outside…
