LAQA&Co Fat Lip Pencil

I love products with a story behind them, which is why I am positively crazy in love with LAQA&Co. Fat Lip Pencils. The Fat Lip Pencil is a glossy jumbo lip pencil that does not need a sharpener, which I think is absolutely brilliant because there is nothing worse than Read more

Karin Herzog Choco2 Face Cream Review

I've always considered myself lucky when it comes to my skin.  Sure I've had the occasional pimple or was inconvenienced by random dry skin or oily skin a times, but it was never out of control or got to the point where it was a stressor for me. I wish I would Read more

La Fresh hello Eco-Beauty Lip Treat Review

In the summer, the last thing I want to do is to apply any sort of sticky or gooey product to my lips.  I am a lip gloss fanatic, but even the lightest gloss is too much product for me when it's sweltering.  I will usually just opt for Read more

Sphatika Bulgarian Rose Facial Oil Review

As promised, I wanted to follow up my post about my experience at Sphatika and discuss their array of products.

Sphatika’s founder, Janet League-Katzin created a specially formulated line of products after discovering that no facial cleansers, exfoliators, or crèmes on the market met her standards for excellence.  These are the only products available at the Columbus Circle location, and their exclusive, 100% natural botanical ingredients will change the way you look at skin care products.

Now all that aside, I’ve been in a very rose-y mood lately. Between some nice Valentine’s Day flowers and an overload of rosewater macaroons, rose has without a doubt been my favorite scent du jour…so when you make a facial product infused with Bulgarian Rose Oil, it obviously is going to catch my attention.  Read more

Spa Review: Sphatika

As a beauty lover, I’ve been to a good amount of spas. There are the boujis, “better than you” spas, the super-busy “get your facial and get out” spas, and your standard but efficient salon/spa combination. Once in awhile, however, a girl is lucky enough to come across a spa or treatment that is a true standout, one that makes her feel special, relaxed, at peace. For me, that spa was Sphatika in NYC.

A tranquil oasis conveniently tucked behind a Starbucks in Columbus Circle, Sphatika is a truly a hidden gem.

Sphatika takes a holistic, sensory approach to the entire spa experience. All spas are meant to make you feel beautiful, but Sphatika places a very special emphasis on treating the whole you “mind, body, and soul.” Their welcoming staff encourages you to create an intention for your visit, one that you have a chance to reflect upon during your personal sauna that kicks off your treatment session.   Read more
