The Body Shop Coconut

No summer beach getaway for me this year. Boo. But The Body Shop is looking out for me by making me feel a little bit like I’m lounging surf-side on a secluded island. Even if that island happens to by my bathtub and secluded means I’ve locked the bathroom door. Their new line of organic virgin coconut oil bath treats is deliciously divine. The fragrance alone is perfection: coconut-ty but more sophisticated than that oily glop I slathered on in…

Sephora makeup.

I’ve recently developed an infatuation with Sephora.com. I’ve enjoyed their stores in other cities–if you’ve visited a Sephora store you know how fun it can be with all those pretty, shiny containers of color and fragrance. But, I had never purchased makeup on-line before. Don’t know what I was worried about. Their selection of brands is unbelievable and I’ve been really happy with each of my purchases, like this, though if I hadn’t been happy, returns aren’t a big deal….

I actually wanted to join the Peace Corps after college, but then I met and married Victor, and the rest is history. When I became aware of Basa Body through my dear friend Jyl of Mom it Forward, I was…

how to: braid little girls hair.

I’ve been waiting a long time for a site like this to come around. A long, long time. I’m one of those people who can copy a craft from a mile away, but coming up with the idea? heaven help me. This is true of styling P’s hair. Never mind that she hasn’t let me near her hair for years. A girl can dream, right? I think this is my year. I can feel it in my bones. Here’s what…
