Beautiful Resolutions: 5 Products for the New Year and a New You

Posted by Stefanie on Fri, 12/19/2014 - 2:54 PM


Out with the old and in with the new…. As one year ends and another one begins, it’s time to make those annual resolutions and attempt to stick by them for as long as we possibly can. It recently occurred to us, however, that these lofty life goals can actually be met and kept if they are pursued through a bounty of beauty products. Sounds intriguing, right? So we’ll show you what we mean.

Lose weight. After all of the holiday parties and numerous meals packed with plenty of calories – a gift, by the way, that you can’t return! – shedding a few pounds becomes a big priority. Here’s where Payot Puissance Minceur, a Slimming Wrap with a Concentrate of Caffeine will definitely come in handy to help fast track the fat loss. 

Manage stress. Work, family, friends and just plain day-to-day life demands can cause anxiety – especially during the season of giving. To start 2015 at ease, turn to Relaxing Aromatherapy One 2.5x1.75 Inch Time Soy Candle. With it, a sense of calm will surround you for up to 15 hours through a combination of essentials oils of luxurious lavender and tantalizing tangerine.  

Get healthy. This should be on everyone’s to do list, no matter what size or age you are, because wellness is where it’s at. The largest organ on your body definitely deserves some special care, so Nu Derm Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35 by Obagi  is one product you should consider for shielding and saving it from harmful external elements.

Save money. This resolution is a lot easier said than done - there’s so much to purchase and so little time! Trying before buying is the key here, and you can do that through samples sizes. Take for example, Clarins Extra-Firming Luxury Collection . It offers a 1.7 oz. day cream, .7 oz. eye cream, .5 oz. neck cream and .53 oz. night cream all organized and packaged in a classic keepsake box.

Recycle, reuse. Helping the environment is a popular resolution right now, since more and more people are becoming aware of the need to reduce waste. That’s one of the reasons we adore Love Peace & The Planet Eco Awesome Moisturizing Conditioner by Tigi .This unisex product pampers your hair and mother earth too with 80% organic content and a tube made up of 50% post-consumer recycled material.

Five Jewel-Inspired Fragrances for Holiday

Posted by Stefanie on Thu, 12/11/2014 - 12:00 AM

 ‘Tis the season when everything sparkles because holiday time is the right time for glitter and gold. When it comes to precious gems, there are plenty of perfumes that we treasure. Here’s a handful of fragrances we know you’ll favor that are beautifully jewel-inspired.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and nobody lived that philosophy more than screen queen Elizabeth Taylor. Her signature scent,White Diamonds, is an iconic floral specialty that makes every woman ready for her close-up – aromatically anyway.

Speaking of movies, the Emerald City was the destination where Dorothy’s dreams could come true. When it comes to enticing aromas, Judith Leiber Emerald  is just as desirable.

The sun will come out tomorrow with all its beautiful yellow-orange glow. Speaking of something you can bet your bottom dollar on, Halston Women Amber  will definitely make every woman shine in chic and stylish way.

Green is good, and not just when it comes to the environment! When it comes to sensuous scents inspired by beautiful baubles, Forever Jade by Songo is one that glitters with amazing aromas.

In order to get to the land of Oz, our girl Dorothy needed those dazzling ruby slippers. In order to achieve a fragrance that makes all of your dream aromas come true, all you need is C- Thru Ruby.

We like rocks – especially the priceless kind. When it comes to mining for precious stones, it’s a lot of work but getting gem-inspired scents are much less labor-intensive. You can just a grab a hold of a stellar example we’ve happily dug up such as Quartz by Molyneuz.
