Forever on the hunt for amazingly refreshing facial mist products, I thought I had found my favorite (Sue Devitt Microquatic Luminous Finishing Mist). That was before I came across a small unassuming bottle of aromatic hydrating goodness, Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water, during a special getaway to Big Sur’s Ventana Inn & Spa.
Though I hadn’t heard of Kerstin Florian products before, once I tried of spritz of the Rehydrating Neroli Water, I was instantly smitten. I had found The One – the Best Facial Mist Ever!
Unassuming packaging aside, Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water, feels › Continue reading

Nail polish is the new lipstick, and if you haven’t been under a rock in the last year you know that creative nail polish art has gone mainstream. Nail product giant Sally Hansen has kept up with the nail art trend and has updated their fun-and-easy nail polish strips line, Salon Effects, to include more patterns like this handwritten love letter polish.
Reminiscent of the cool DIY newsprint nail polish look, these handwritten polish strips combine a DIY modern feel with a hint of old-school paper and ink, but without all the extra steps, paper cuts or consumption.

What makes Sheswai Lacquer stand out is their gorgeous bottles with custom sustainably harvested wood caps and their beautiful 3 Free color selection. Not only are Sheswai nail polishes free of formaldehyde, DBP and toluene, › Continue reading

Erica Weiner is still one of my favorite indie jewelry makers. From the ingenuity and whimsy of her best-selling handcuff lariat necklace, and now to the vintage sweetness of her letterpress lyrics heart necklaces, there’s something extra special about Erica Weiner’s pieces.
Earlier this year, during a sale, I picked up a couple Sweetheart Necklaces by Erica Weiner with custom stamped text on both sides. The one inch brass heart is like a larger and flatter sweetheart candy heart on a 16″ chain, and with custom, slightly imperfect, letterpress lettering it looks rather striking and feels one-of-a-kind.
I chose to customize the necklaces with lyrics › Continue reading

As one of their limited time offers, Sephora.com has been giving away gift with purchase bags with $25 orders, including a great little Hello Kitty Cosmetics Bag full of nice samples. From among three Sephora gift bag options, this clear Hello Kitty bag was my pick, because it’s Hello Kitty done right (and makes a great travel bag).
Unlike the traditional uber-pink Hello Kitty products that we girls used to adore as pre-adolescents, this Hello Kitty Sephora Originals bag seems designed for Hello Kitty girls who have grown up (and gotten jobs). Though this clear Hello Kitty cosmetics bag has a few touches of pale pink, it mostly features a subtle silver Hello Kitty print that will make you look twice.
