Face Serum with Carrot Seed Oil

My deep friendships tend to fall into two categories.* Either there is an instant recognition of our connection or a gradual admiration that grows over time. I was late to the cultural meme that is a young women’s obsession with Jane Austen. I met Jane when I was twenty years old on my first trip […]

Kelp Powder, Lemon, and Honey Face Mask

So this was my Saturday. It started so nice. My favorite things. Sleeping in. Running errands. Driving over the curb and popping my tire. Yep. It happened as I turned left into the the pizza shop parking lot that I thought was the hardware store parking lot. (Poor life choice #1.)  Anxious to get out […]

Mango and Honey Face Mask

I have a small circle of influence. I am not rich or famous. I have a moderate-to-small amount of facebook friends and twitter followers. When I judge myself by these standards I feel ineffectual. Last week I had two completely different run-ins with strangers that reminded me that sometimes the smallest interactions can have the […]

Yogurt, Chamomile, Spearmint and Green Tea Face Mask

When I was I kid I never thought about living in Los Angeles as an adult. All I knew about California I learned from the Brady Bunch. Same goes for Hawaii and the Grand Canyon. (Hey, this was well before internet and we didn’t have cable so don’t judge.)  After five years here, I feel as […]

Honey Face Mask

  I’m procrastinating. Right now. I have a to-do list that is full of more important stuff that writing this post. This post can wait. But it’s summer. And it’s hot out. And I started procrastinating yesterday by choosing to spend the day sitting outside at a cafe in the company of a good friend. […]

Green Tea Eye Mask with Spearmint and Chamomile

I grew into my girl-i-ness late in life. I was tomboy growing up.  I remember being with my dad and a stranger thinking I was his son.  I didn’t get highlights until I was 30. I went through most of my twenties without owning a hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron  or anything that could […]

Egg White Face Mask

I lost my voice this weekend. For the first time in my life. I am trying to not take this personally. I always thought that the saying “lost my voice” was silly. Really? You really can’t talk? Buck up camper and try a little harder. (It falls into the same category as “It’s always in […]

Avocado Cucumber Face Mask

Woohoo! Today I’m celebrating baby steps! And by baby steps I mean getting out of bed when I wanted to sleep in, not crying uncontrollably at the ending of the BBC miniseries North and South, hanging my clothes up every day after wearing them, resisting the siren call of chocolate peanut butter cups four out […]

Yogurt Almond Face Scrub

Doing anything for the first time can be a little nerve racking. Roller coasters, yep, roller coasters are definitely scarier the first trip. Checking the air pressure in your tires…just did that for the first time in my life last week. Stood looking at the pump for 5 bewildered minutes before someone offered to teach […]

Aspirin Face Mask

This past week I’ve been thinking a lot. And feeling a lot. And thinking about feelings…a lot.  The thinking has resulted in me resting my chin in my hand and staring aimlessly at the computer The feeling has resulted in my head meeting my desk on multiple occasions (and not just metaphorically).  I have told […]
