Avon Ain't Dead


Anyone with a mother or grandmother that indulged in any type of beauty regime is familiar with Avon. But who knew I would discover a treasure trove of classic grooming products from the direct-selling beauty line in 2015?

Staycation, All I Ever Wanted




Spring is here, or is it? Quite frankly, I'm completely over this weather. NYC tried to redeem itself with a few spurts of heat rays only to be duped in the same week with snow/rain/freezing temps and I've had it. And while I may not be able to afford a sun-filled, blissful sabbatical, a staycation wouldn't hurt. Yes, it's still in NYC. But seeing a dreary Gotham City for months on end can make one's eyes and heart fatigued.  

Staycations are cool because they're cheaper than a full-blown out of town vacation. Plus it may be easier to round up friends to go away for a weekend and it gives you a little break without having to go through security with no shoes on. 

I personally haven't been on a formal staycation (*cough* to friends and family) but my first pick (if asked whereto venture) would be the Stickett Inn. Pun may or may not be intended.

Reviewing Beauty: Insta Natural Argan Oil



If you've read my blog, you know that I strive to use natural products whenever possible especially in my hair. I am a recovering hair product junkie so I haven't bought anything new in recent months but Insta Natural* sent over two of their Argan oil products and I have to say I am impressed. There are absolutely no synthetic ingredients in their products.
