I’d love to tell you about my amazing mom. She’s the strongest woman I know and it’s for all the reasons on top of raising 3 grown kids, numerous pets and my dad! My mom is a primary care doctor. But she hasn’t always been. When I was small, she was the first diver hired on by the Aquarium in New Orleans when it opened in 1991. How cool is that? I got to go to the aquarium, point at the diver in the tank and say “That’s my MOM!”Â Read more
Gold is already an iconic color of summer, from shimmering beach sands to glowing sun-kissed complexions. But what about real gold? As extravagant as it sounds, the mineral is popping up in all sorts of makeup, from 24k-infused lip glosses and luxe powder eyeshadows to even golden hair pomade! Believe it or not, the extra bling really does serve a purpose beyond just being an indulgent added ingredient — gold flecks give formulas enhanced shine, and appears more subtly shimmery than some Mica-infused products that can appear too glittery or chunky. Believe it or not, most 24k products aren’t much more expensive than their less luxurious brand counterparts, so be careful not to get swindled into paying big bucks for the extra glitz!Â Read more
I adore celebrity esthetician, Renee Rouleau, and her skin care collection, but I really LOVE her Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel. If I could use a few adjectives to describe it they would be: invigorating, refreshing, energizing and stimulating. If you are as big a fan of mint as I am, then you will absolutely fall in love with this cleanser.
Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel is a clear, rich textured gel. It feels very smooth and creamy as you apply it over your face. I had a cold while testing out this product and I immediately noticed that the mint fragrance opened up my stuffy nose. As you rub the gel over your face with your finger tips you will feel a tingling sensation, as if getting the blood circulating properly giving you what is known as the Renee Rouleau glow.
Once you wash away the gel your face will feel clean without being “squeaky clean.” This is because Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel is sulfate-free and soap-free, therefore won’t leave your face stripped of oils and drying it out. Read more
I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. My dad used to live there and would often email me pictures of this amazing place. So when Spa Moana at Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa reached out to me about their Hawaiian Rain Shower Polish that guests receive there, I asked about how those of use who can’t afford the flight to this oasis, can bring the experience in-home. Because naturally, a girl’s gotta spa!
At Spa Moana, guests booking the Hawaiian Rain Shower Polish receive a 45 min body scrub and wrap. The service uses Raw Maui Sugar and fresh Hawaiian botanicals which are applied to the skin producing a naturally exfoliating and softening effect. Coconut oil is massaged into the scalp and hair, and a warm towel is then wrapped around the head. This allows for a deeper penetration for the oil to hydrate the hair follicles and repair damaged ends. To finish, a six shower head Vichy shower glides above the body to rinse and revitalized. To complete this journey the therapist applies a warm coconut milk and macadamia nut oil to the body, leaving skin moist and nurtured from the ain’a (land) of Hawaii.
Here’s how to recreate the Hawaiian Rain Shower Polish at home: Read more
