New! Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment


As one of my favorite skincare lines and the one I am most prone to recommend to friends and family I am always excited when I hear Murad has a new product launch. Well 2016 is starting well for guys and gals that are battling the dreaded crow’s feet and dark circles! Murad has launched the amazing new Eye Lift Firming Treatment. With 86% of study users seeing a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in a week I was excited to see what it could do for my weathered eye area.

This set comes with serum and little eye pads. You apply 3 pumps to the under eye area on each eye and lightly spread across the orbital bone with your ring finger. Right away there is an ahhhh feeling of a fresh, light tingle. After spreading apply the pads smallest side in or the opposite as I did then change it once you bother to read all the direction. That’s it! Sit back and let the serum work its magic for 10 to 15 minutes. Drink your coffee, play cats cradle with your hair band or get your kegels in (hey why not multi-task)?



After 10 to 15 minutes remove the eye pads and gently pat in an extra serum, I like to do this while whispering “my precious”. Enjoy the wonderful tingle and your set to go.

Now what I love about Murad is their products live up to their promises. I tell friends you can invest in a bunch of gimmicky products you see on tv and get frustrated or invest in Murad and see changes from the first use. Yes, one use!! After just my first use my under eye area felt moisturized and looked plumper and firmer. At the end of my first week I can see a definite improvement in the crows feet and my dark circle heck you would think I sleep 8 hours a night on a pillow of clouds. Another great product from Murad. If you are fighting fine lines and crow feet, run don’t walk to grab a tube of this and see how much a great serum can do in just 7 days.

Introducing: WOW Mask


I love a good face mask and couldn’t wait to try the WOW Luxury Face Mark. I have used sheet masks before but this was the first gel version and it was definitely different. A little squidgy to remove from the packet and with an upper and lower portion it took a bit of maneuvering to get it in the right spot. But once applied it settled well onto my skin and my Chianti and fava beans jokes commenced. The mask may have looked a bit creepy but it felt wonderful on my skin. The serum coated gel instantly calmed my skin and I was happy to sit back and let it work its magic for the next 40 minutes.

One of my favorite parts of this mask was how easy it is to take off. Instead of scrubbing my face red or trying to get mask out of my hairline I just pulled off the gel pieces and tossed them and rubbed the remaining serum into my skin. After 40 minutes my skin felt great and definitely hydrated, the serum left my skin feeling and looking bright and smooth. And my skin had a full, plumper look with the little lines around my eyes a bit less noticeable and some of the red spots all but faded. Definitely a luxury and a great way to pamper yourself before a special event to make sure you look your best.




WOW Mask is a professional aqua gel mask for immediate visible results of skin restoration. It is based on innovative technology and components to ensure that you feel and look younger after the very first use.

You will love WOW Mask Luxury Face Mask Treatment for its ability to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles;
  • Deliver extra hydration to your skin;
  • Give it a smooth finishing sensation; and
  • Improve its elasticity and tone.

It is a natural alternative to injectables. All the active ingredients have been finely balanced to deliver the treatment quickly. WOW makes skin look as perfect as can be for 24 hours but the effects can be felt for up to 7 days. It’s perfect for busy women. Once the mask has settled, the wearer can get on with whatever it is they need to do.

Whilst we recommend that the WOW Facial Mask treatment is used every 5 to 7 days, it’s been formulated to be used as often as you like. In order to get the full WOW effect, we suggest applying the mask at least 12 hours before a WOW Moment. In other words, set the alarm clock 20 to 40 for minutes earlier than usual and put a WOW mask on whilst working though your emails at the breakfast table.

  1. Wash your face then pat dry with a soft cloth.
  2. Once the mask is out of the silver sleeve, remove both of the plastic sheets.
  3. Place it on your face – it’s a little slippery to start with so give it 5 minutes to settle.
  4. Leave it on for 20-40 mins (the longer, the better).
  5. Remove the mask gently and savour the sensation.

After having insanely thick hair most of my life which always seemed to make cute hairstyles exhausting and hard to maintain. Now my hair is getting a bit thinner and of course I miss all that volume. With color treating and heat styling my fine hair can get very limp, lack luster and frizzy.

Elizabeth and James NIRVANA


Nirvana an intimate moment captured in two distinctive fragrances for her. Created by Ashley Olsen & Mary-Kate Olsen. Ashley and Mary-Kate wanted the signature fragrance for Elizabeth and James to embody the same sense of duality inherent to their partnership and the brand. The result was not one, but two blends—distinctly different, but undeniably connected.


Floral, fresh, feminine and addicting. Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is one of those scents you just can’t get enough of. If Black is the dark sexy version, white is the romantic, alluring version. The gorgeous combo of peony and musk is amazing, long wearing and it just gets better as the day goes on. Its a scent your man will love as much as you do. Perfect for your Valentine date night.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White $80
The Elizabeth and James Nirvana fragrances embody the brand’s inherent duality. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black’s sensual, woody scent with notes of violet, sandalwood and vanilla is contrasted by Elizabeth and James Nirvana White’s alluring floral musk with notes of peony, muguet and vanilla. Two blends- distinctly different, yet undeniably connected.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is a captivating blend of delicate peony, chic muguet, and tender musk for a feminine scent with dark sophistication.

Peony, Muguet, Tender Musk.
Sophisticated. Feminine. Captivating.


The more sexier scent of the two, Nirvana Black is the perfect combo of musk, vanilla and sandalwood.  There is something dark and sensual about this scent and the best part its not like anything else you own.  A true standout, I love wearing this on a night out and am always amazed how long the scent lasts. You can’t wear this out without people asking what the amazing fragrance is your wearing.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black $80
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black is an addictive blend of alluring violet, sensual sandalwood, and rich vanilla that strike the perfect balance between masculine and feminine.

Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla.
Sensual. Mysterious. Warm.
