Some of the best perfumes are made by indie brands. When I first began blogging in 2005, I came across perfumer, Sharon Bolton, and her amazing fragrances. For a few years she went off the radar, but I was so thrilled when she recently reached out with the relaunch as Read more

Smith Farms Honeysuckle Hair and Body Oil Review

Smith Farms Honeysuckle Hair and Body OilFor soft, smooth, velvety skin, I’ve been turning to body oils. The lovely sisters at Smith Farms send me their Honeysuckle Hair and Body Oil ($16) to try. No wonder it’s one of their best sellers–it’s made with one third each jojoba, sweet almond and sunflower oil. This light and fast absorbing oil is as good for your hair as it is for your skin. Enriched with vitamin E and honeysuckle essential oil, this multipurpose oil is as decadent as it is hardworking.

The story of Smith Farms is interesting and compelling. The Smith Farm story begins with Julia.

“To be honest, it began the day during a walk in the woods at the farm. I had been thinking about my career and wondering if I could be doing something more fulfilling. What kept coming to mind, was an interest in creating skincare products, specifically natural ones, that would be safe and gentle and not irritate sensitive skin. Being a bit of a skincare enthusiast, I had recently been concerned with the long list of unrecognizable ingredients on the products I used every day. Inspired by my walk, I decided now was a good time to give it a try.”  Read more

Tibolli Desired Hair Oil Review

Shiny, smooth, sleek, frizz and flyaway-free hair…who wouldn’t want that?

I know this is something I always strive for and more often than not, struggle with.  I have naturally very curly hair and whenever I choose to blow dry it, I know I will be in for a bit of a hair battle.  Whenever I do find a product that prevents fizz and flyaway it has a bad habit of weighing my hair down and leave it feeling and looking greasy.  On the other hand the products that add shine tend not to do that good of a job taming fly-aways and preventing frizz. At times I have combined the greasy products with the too lightweight products to find a happy medium, but I am not a fan of having more than one hair product in my hair at a time.  A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to find my happy hair medium when I was given the opportunity to try Tibolli Desired Hair OilRead more
