7 questions with Ayuna – Less is Beauty

Have you ever thought that you basically have it all figured out? Not about everything, but about something in your life? For me, I thought I had my skincare routine all set. I thought I needed about 27 steps in my routine and 85 different products on my shelf. I knew that selecting non-toxic, all-natural […]

All About Eczema

I pride myself on being an expert in some beauty things: on-the-go lipstick application without a mirror, understanding the best way to use face oils and toner together (you mix first in your hand, then apply to face! You’re welcome!), how to style dirty hair (dry shampoo FTW)… the list goes on, but I won’t […]

New…and IMPROVED!

Fall is a time for new things. New pencils and notebooks for a new school year. New clothes. New shoes. New haircuts and backpacks and schedules. But what about those of us who are no longer in school? Don’t we deserve some serious New, too? Never fear, newness is here! And what’s better than just […]

I really love to travel. Wait, let me rephrase that: I really want to love to travel. And I really love the idea of travel. But the actual reality is that travel kind of stresses me out! For example, right now as I write this, I am preparing to go on a trip for over […]

Getting Your Skin Summer Ready!

I, as a long-time North-Easterner, have always loved the time when it finally becomes summer. I love spring, too, but I particularly love when it’s just so undeniably warm that you can really put away your winter coats, boots, and/or seasonal depression (just me? anyone else?), and finally declare that it’s going to be hot […]

One of many things that makes Austrian brand Max and Me so special is its founders/creators. Tanja (the “me” of the duo) and Max are a fantastically lovely couple who work together to make the products so much more than just skincare. They literally and figuratively infuse their stunningly gorgeous energies into the products, and the […]

Meet Leahlani Skincare

Ever wished you could just magically transport yourself to a tropical island for a few days? Or even for a few hours? Wouldn’t that be nice— if it were close enough, not to mention cheap enough, to just visit a luxurious, island escape in the middle of your work day, without disrupting your life and […]

Scent: Why it matters

Both times I have been pregnant, I knew before taking any tests because of my sense of smell. With my daughter, in 2010, I knew I was pregnant because, as my husband and I boarded the crosstown bus one morning in Manhattan, I said to him, “Whoa, that woman used a lot of shampoo!” There […]
