Essential Oils and Your Health: 7 Natural Remedies for Better Skin, Better Sleep, and More...

Who doesn't love a spa? Tranquil music, calming tea, the joy of slipping into a fluffy robe, and a foot bath while you wait. You walk into your treatment room and it smells of relaxing lavender or refreshing peppermint.
You're probably familiar with aromatherapy and the notion that certain scents can alter one's mood, but what was news to me is that these scents, in the form of essential oils, can also completely change your health.
Turn your house into your personal spa and wellness sanctuary by adding essential oils into your everyday routine.

Want it Wednesday!

Check out what we're currently coveting and shop it for yourself.

1. Tony Moly Egg pore Blackhead Out Oil Gel. When Lauren posted about this egg on her Instgram page last week, I was intrigued! In the last couple of years I've noticed that I get blackheads more frequently, so I'm all about trying this product. Korean beauty products, such as this one, are some of my favorites and for only $6.59 it's a steal!
♡T
2. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. My beauty rule of thumb: If your favorite beauty gurus love something, buy it. They know what they're talking about and that's really all there is to it. L
3. Lampe Berger. My boyfriend's mom recently introduced me to this wonderful product. It purifies the air and gets rid of any unwanted odors VERY effectively (read: your Febreeze bottle sucks). The Lampe Berger was born out of necessity in 1898 to rid hospitals of sepsis, but eventually a fragrance component was added and the Lampe Berger became a bit of a collector's item. There are tons of pretty options for each room in your house. I particularly like this Renoir version. L
4. NARS Velvet Lip Liner in 'Nihiwatu'. Confession time. I don't own a single lip liner! I used to swear by that nude lip liner + sheer-ish gloss look in my high school days, but haven't repurchased a liner since. Now that lining your lips has made an official come back, it's time for me to restock. An obvious first choice is red. L
5. Sam Edelman Lace V-Neck Dress. I recently took another job as a hostess and we are supposed to wear all black. When I was looking through my closet I realized I could use a wardrobe update on the dress department. This Sam Edelman dress would be the perfect LBD to add to my collection! T
6. Etsy Cast Iron Soap Dish. I was searching for another item when I came across this vintage style soap dish for only $16.50! I love the light cream color and it's delicate appearance, which will add just the right touch to spruce up my powder room. T
7. T3 'Twirl 360' Curling Iron. Now that I've cut my hair, it's time to give more thought to styling. I used to rock my limp locks without a care and, truly, "air-dry" was my middle name, but I think this cut requires a bit more doing. I've bought *gasp* mousse and have actually attempted a blow out, so the next step is graduating to a real curling iron. L
8. Retro Card Holder. As I was cleaning out and reorganizing my desk at work, I realized that I've acquired several business cards. I need a more efficient way to store all of the cards I have, which makes this retro card holder the perfect solution! ♡T
9. Aura Cacia Car Oil Diffuser. I'm in love with my oil diffuser (Post on that coming soon). So in love, in fact, that I never want to be without oil-diffused, yummily-scented air again. Enter: oil diffusers for your car. Genius! L
10. William Sonoma Nespresso Vertuo Line. My friend Alex has been raving about her espresso machine, so I've been browsing all the options. I found this machine on William Sonoma, which brews coffee, espresso and lattes. This particular machine also happens to be $100 off! Score. T

SNL 40th Reunion Special


Live from New York, it's Sunday Night!

The Saturday Night Live 40th Reunion Special aired last night on NBC, after showing the first episode of SNL and a red carpet event. 

The special reunion episode averaged an incredible 23.1 million viewers and, in my opinion, was a huge success and revitalization for a show that continues to have a huge cultural impact.

Moscow Mule Monday!


The Moscow Mule is definitely one of my favorite cocktails and it's no secret that they're having a comeback! 

This delicious and refreshing drink has, according to Liquor.com, been around since the 1940s when a vodka distributor and ginger beer maker joined forces to promote their otherwise unpopular beverages.

Ice Ice Baby - Why The Ice Roller Should Be Included In Your Morning Routine

A great way to reduce redness, the size of a lingering pimple and puffiness in the morning is to apply something cold, like an ice cube.

This is a beauty secret that I picked up after reading about tips and tricks models use when their skin could use a little extra TLC. It's also a great way to prime your face before applying makeup because it reduces the size of pores.
