Sugar Scrubs: A Winter Treat

Look,winter is hell in so many ways, but none more so than on your skin. And when it's dreary and dull outside and you skin is looking the same, sugar scrubs to the rescue! A work friend gifted me this for Christmas and it is delicious!

The pinteresting world is full of recipes in all manner of flavors. This'n includes cane sugar (duh), but seriously, refined sugar isn't gonna cut it. The point is to do some exfoliating so those big granules are key. Epsom salts, grape seed oil, almond oil, rosemary and dried mint. All those nice oils leave your skin buttery soft, supple and hydrated. And the smell is heaven. It's really great for exfoliating lips too!

Amy Adams @ the Golden Globes

Versace. Beautiful! As was her speech! I gotta say, there were a lot of red heads in that room and they all looked smashing!

Viola Davis @ the Golden Globes

Can we all just take a minute to appreciate Ms Viola Davis. In Donna Karan. She is absolutely glowing. Her makeup artist deserves all the love! In fact, all the celebs at the ceremony tonight have a gorgeous glow. The perks of L.A. in January!

Modern Equestrian Decor

I really really love equestrian decor with a fresh modern feel. None of that stuffy old fox hunting stuff!

New Year, New You

Gearing up for the work-out season? Try this gorgeous outfit. Gotta match those neons, then finish with neutrals. No reason to be a wreck at the gym!

And while we're on the subject I'm again going to push this Brazilian Butt Workout. It is so bad-ass. Pun heavily intended. Give Kim K a run for her money.

Matt Berson Tundra boots

I've been searching madly for a pair of chic black flat boots that wouldn't kill my feet while working all day but that are still super cool. And warm. If last season's polar vortex taught me anything, it was that my Uggs were a valuable investment that have held out for 10 years. And that they are the ONLY warm pair of shoes I own, What they are not, however, is sleek. I feel like a co-ed wearing them all the time.
What I landed on was Matt Berson's Tundra boots. Leather, shearling, chunky and slouchy but not too much so. If they're good enough for Olivia Palermo, (a girl who's got more money than she knows what to do with and still keeps coming back to these) they're good enough for me.

Happy New Year!

Sorry my loves! Been basking in the glow of a lovely vacay! Happy 2015 to you all!
