A Meditation Teacher’s 8 Tips for Better Sleep

Since having Ethan last year, and a few months prior to his birth, sleep has eluded me. Before getting pregnant, I would take melatonin or unisom before bed because my insomnia was so bad. Although Ethan is 1, he still doesn't sleep through the night, which means I can't be Read more

Block Island Organics Review

Block Island Organics Skincare review via @agirlsgottaspa

Block Island – a gorgeous island located in Rhode Island. Yes, many people get confused – “isn’t Rhode Island an island?” they ask me. I go on to list many islands found in Rhode Island – Patience, Goat, Aquidneck, Hog, Hope, Prudence Island… and so many more. My grandparents owned a home on Aquidneck Island, right on Naragansett Bay, that as a child I had hoped to one day inherit. Unfortunately they sold it years ago (I still hope one day I can buy it back.)

I spent countless Summer vacations on Prudence Island, which I hope to one day bring my children to. And Block Island, the place where a number of US Presidents have visited, as well as Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh, is another prestine and spectacular piece of beauty in RI.

Nostalgia aside, I became obsessed with an organic skin care line named after Block Island that I want to share with you. Read more

WEI To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser Review

WEI -To -Go- Real- Clean- Gelled -Oil -CleanserWhenever I’m traveling, one thing I can count on without fail is the appearance of breakouts.  My skin tends to get clogged and congested on the plane and by the time I land I can feel the bumps start to emerge.  In an effort to be preventative I’ve started to use facial wipes on the plane, but a lot of times these are drying on my face and exacerbates the problem.

I finally came to the conclusion that I needed a cleanser that was both gentle and moisturizing on my skin while still being capable to remove dirt, makeup and any other skin congestant found on a plane.  On my last flight I cleansed my face with WEI To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser.  The cleanser comes in extremely airplane friendly 10ml tubes, is super easy to use and has a very refreshing lemony scent.  Read more

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser Review

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser ($29) is a gentle cleanser made with my personal favorite ingredient, glycolic acid. If you’ve never used glycolic acid, let me tell you it’s fabulous for aging as well as acne prone skin. It helps wrinkles AND pimples, how cool is that?

Glycolic acid is the most active and beneficial of the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHA) used in skin care and is derived from sugar cane.  *It stimulates the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other forms of sun damage. **Due to this unique mechanism of action, glycolic acid has also been found to be beneficial for the management of conditions involving hyperkeratinization, i.e., psoriasis, ichthyosis, acne, dry skin, etc. Anyone suffering from these skin disorders would benefit greatly from the use of glycolic acid. It’s a fundamental part of a skin care maintenance program that will keep your skin healthy throughout the years.  Read more
