Natural Beauty Brand Review: Pucker Paste Lip Balm

So, I’ll admit to being a beauty product hoarder, and the main product I hoard is lip balm.

At a beauty tradeshow, I had the opportunity to learn about an interesting brand called Earth tu Face, a plant-based, organic, 100% natural skin care line, which is free of toxins and synthetic compounds.

NYC: Visit the St. Ives Mixing Bar

Last week, I went apricot picking. OK, the apricots weren’t real, and I didn’t actually get to pick the apricots off, but it was still a lot of fun. I had this experience within the mirrored infinity room full of small and life-sized apricots in the St. Ives Mixing Bar, a temporary store in SoHo neighborhood Manhattan. The store opened up on June 16th and … Continue reading NYC: Visit the St. Ives Mixing Bar
