Another month of favorites and another addition to the vintage cookbook collection. The Delectable Past is a delightful cookbook of Old World and Early American recipes. To my favorites! Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue by Alterna: This super moisturizing hair mask does wonders for my hair. You massage it in before bed and wash it out in the morning for super soft hair. Available at Ulta and Sephora. Illamasqua blusher in
My favorite products this month. Lotion Yon-Ka – Dry Skin Toner: My aesthetician swears by Yon-Ka, a French skincare brand, and sells the line in her office. I use a few toners/waters in rotation depending on what my skin needs. I use this hydrating one in the morning which contains Lavender Oil, Geranium Flower Oil, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Cypress Oil, and Thyme Oil. Buy from Dermstore here with free shipping
Happy New Year! Here are a few of my favorites for January. Dew Me Moisturizing Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay: Having dry skin, I prefer to use a spray rather than powder to set my makeup. This one is great. Your makeup will stay in place throughout the workday or evening. And, your skin will glow! This is not a matte finish hence the name, Dew Me! Available at Sephora
Merry Christmas! It’s time for December Favorites! NARS Guy Bourdin Limited Edition One Night Stand Cheek Palette: A Christmas present I bought for myself and it’s AMAZING. It was limited edition so if you want it, you’ll have to hunt eBay for it. It has four great blushes, a bronzer, and a highlighter in one tidy palette. Love it! Tom Ford Black Orchid Cologne: I bought this in September and have been
I have to start with this cool reproduction of a famous Bernard Buffet painting I picked up at an estate sale last month in Connecticut. I just love it.

It smells amazing. And as with most beauty waters,
Phyx Intense Overnight Repair Masque by Kronos: I discovered this hair mask about five years ago and I’m so happy that I did. It’s terrific. If you doubt me, note that it holds The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for #1 overnight hair treatment. Amazon has the best price. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream: My favorite drugstore BB cream to date. Applies like a sheer and creamy tinted moisturizer.
I’m still in Las Vegas and it’s still hot! Sebastian Trilliant Thermal Protection and Sparkle Complex Spray: I use a heat protectant every time I use a hot tool on my hair and rotate a few products. The last couple of months, I’ve been using this one. I doesn’t provide a ton of shine on me but it does give me some body and I like it as a heat
This month turned me onto some new favorites as well as some old stand buys. Shiseido Facial Cotton: Hands down THE BEST cotton pads on the market. Do your face a favor and get your hands on a packet of these. They’re often sold out on the website and in stores. Once you try them, you’ll see why they can’t keep them in stock. Usually available where Shiseido is sold.
