Some cravings are impossible to resist. But when it comes to this trio of delicious Almond Cookie treats, this may not be a bad thing. Start by turning your bath into a relaxing mini spa with our sumptuous, long-lasting Almond Cookie Candle with its intensely aromatic blend of almonds and marzipan. Next, gently buff away dry, winter-worn skin with the Almond Cookie Sea Salt Scrub that’s made with a delightful blend of softening Avocado and Jojoba Oils. For the finishing touch, spray on a light veil of fragrance from our purse-size Almond Cookie Eau de Toilette Mini. It’s the perfect little indulgence for someone special, or for yourself! Read more
I recently received a hair care question from A Girl’s Gotta Spa! reader, Jessica. For this particular question I decided to reach out to my friend, hair care expert and celebrity hairstylist, Jon Reyman (yes, that Jon Reyman pictured with me and Pearson Knight from my makeover challenge). Jon is also President and one of the pros behind Beautyvt.com.
“Hi, I have a question. I have straight, long hair and it’s kinda frizzy, its not extremely frizzy, but enough where it gets on your nerves. I was wondering if you can give me a great shampoo and conditioner brand that will give my hair shine, no frizz, and be healthy. I also don’t want to use any hairspray or gels, I just want to use shampoo and conditioner to keep it simple. I would really appreciate your help. –Jessica”

Today Karen Robinovitz, Creatrix of Purple Lab, is launching on HSN at 9am EST (and again at night 8pm EST.) Purple Lab epitomizes all things sexy and chic. My favorite being Huge Lips Skinny Hips, but I’m pretty sure Lashionista Modelista will quickly become my second favorite (I saw what amazing feats this lash growth-enhancing liquid liner/tubing mascara can do back in October when it was still all hush hush!)
Karen and I are in contact on a daily basis and about 2 weeks ago she issued me a challenge that I like to call: Operation Chic & Sexy (or she might call it Dramatic Makeup â€“ Purple Lab NYC.) Regardless, she was sending along her only lab sample of Cheek Implants in 6 Inch Heels and I was already armed with my Huge Lips Skinny Hips in Worship Kate to help aid in this challenge. Now I just needed to find someone to do my hair, someone to do my makeup, find an event to go to and find an amazing date to show up with. I had my work cut out for me.
I tackled hair first. Davide Torchio has invited me into his salon many times, but the timing had never been right. In fact, I had sent Nando in my place once when he had his hair emergency. Without hesitation, Davide gave me an appointment time and I was excited to see what he had in store for me. After seeing what he and Roberto Morelli did for the Lance Bass photo shoot, I took a chance to see if Roberto would be willing to do makeup for a non-celebrity like myself. When Davide tweeted that Roberto agreed, I was over the moon.Â Read more
So you remember my post about the transformation of Lance Bass, right? Well that is what I wanted for myself. I told Davide and Roberto that I grew up on makeover shows and hoping that one day someone could transform me into the swan I knew I was inside (which, sidebar: do you remember that reality TV show, The Swan? That show was crazy.) Read more
Smashbox’s Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($16 at Sephora) is one lip treatment that has been effective in my battle against dry chapped lips. This lip therapy has a subtle sweet honey flavor. It is colorless, but does add a pretty transparent sheen. The honey helps to soften and moisturize while the Vitamin E and shea butter help to nourish the skin. It is also packed full of antioxidants, vitamins A, C & E as well as shea butter, jojoba and avocado oils. Chamomile and aloe aid in soothing.Â Read more
