Posted by 07.14.16

What do you think of when you hear the words Aloe Vera? I’m instantly transported back to my teen years when I’d visit my grandparents in Bal Harbour, Florida. My sister, brother and I spent almost every school holiday and summer break hanging out with all the other kids who were visiting their grandparents as well. We’d swim in the ocean and bake ourselves by the pool, obviously a very different time — we weren’t schooled to protect our skin as much as we now know we should. If we got sunburned — and we always did — we’d break open an aloe vera leaf and apply the cool, green gel that oozed out of it directly on the burn. Nothing felt better than that!

TEA TIME: 6 GREEN AND WHITE TEA-INFUSED BEAUTY MUST-HAVES

Posted by 10.26.15

I’ve spent many a crisp, cool day curled up on the couch with a cup of hot tea, a cozy blanket and a good book. It’s the best way I know to bring a sense of calm to an otherwise hectic day. Besides soothing my senses, sipping a cup of tea has many therapeutic benefits including antioxidant protection, anti-inflammatory properties, anti-aging benefits and the polyphenols in tea are even believed to have anti-carcinogenic properties.

For centuries, tea has also been used for beauty purposes and is still used in many a home remedy. You can use it to de-puff eyes, add shine to the hair and as a skin soother, but if you’re less the DIY type and more the OTC type you can still get your daily in

NUTS FOR COCONUTS!

Posted by 08.20.15

I recently returned from a weekend away in Florida. It was everything I expected it to be and more — the weather was hot and steamy, I visited family and sat poolside under a striped umbrella sipping delicious, icy cocktails. I ate my fair share of freshly caught seafood and deli (hello corned beef on rye with brown mustard and a half-sour pickle on the side!). I took long walks on the beach and experienced the trendy South Beach area as well as the more refined Williams Island and Bal Harbour. Regardless of where I was and what I was doing, everywhere I looked I was surrounded by the most gorgeous coconut palm trees…and to me nothing says Florida more than that!
