Molton Brown Sheerplay Lipgloss Set $15

I discovered Molton Brown’s Vitamin Lipsaver years ago on a British Airways flight to London. It changed my life. OK, not really, but it made my dry lips feel (and look) worlds better, and it remains a staple in my purse. Not too long ago I tried their gloss and, once again, it made my [...]

Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Shower Gel $3*

I’ll admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of Bath & Body Works (not counting when I was in the 7th grade and smelling like strong fruit was all the rage.) But these days it’s got a whole new vibe, and they carry a ton of great products, including C.O. Bigelow, Korres, and my personal [...]

GIFT GUIDE: Skin Milk Hand Creme $5.49*

Yep, it was a better than average Thanksgiving weekend. I’m ridiculously excited and just starting to think about planning a wedding. This is a [...]
