It’s perfect! They’ll wrap it, pack it, and send it, all with a personalized card. Now which card... Go Buck Wild on Your Birthday or Life is So Boring Without You...? Shoot!  Buck Wild.... Thank you for making my friend’s birthday the best!

You have fifteen minutes to make your feet look like you care about the event you’re about to go to. What do you do? You missed your pedicure yesterday and your strappy Jimmy’s are calling you. Hopefully you have the emergency kit... 1.  The scrub – Ojai Sugar in Citrus 2.  The paddle 3.  The cuticle pusher 4.  The nail brush 5.  The cuticle oil 6.  The block buffer and emery board 7.  Finally, the Beekman honeyed grapefruit hand and foot lotion to quickly massage in. Remember, no nail trimming! It always makes them look crooked and your manicurist will be so mad to have to paint those nails if they are cut too short. Just quickly file and you’ll be safe. Sometimes you have to fake it till you make it... well, that is until the next pedicure appointment.

It’s almost the end of the season for deconstructed hair and beach waves (even though these styles are still hot for fall with a dark lip). Sure on your wedding day or for a big event you’ll want a more put-together look with each curl in place and no frizz, but is that really prefect beach waves. Here is the secret healthy hair product and a curling iron. First, it’s time to deep condition… The Restore line from Living Proof, or the tried and true Phyto brand has truly hydrating shampoos and conditioners. Next, a good styling product… Get a creamy leave-in…not some oil that won’t create shine for you the next day. Wash the night before.  Leave in Davines creamy milk spray...smells so amazing. Wrap your hair up even if it is a bob. It helps to keep the cuticle down. Final steps… Next morning. A great curling iron. Debatable on what this is but nothing under 50 is worth it unless you only plan to use it once a year. Take only the top crazy section and flatten them out with the iron by wrapping the hair around the whole barrel. This is not suppose to be perfect just enough to show that you mean it. Now for the icing on the top... an oil, now is the time to splurge with a little Davines oil to piece it up and make it 100% healthy. Oh, the scent and the beautiful hair. Yay!  BTW if you are stick straight you may need to wrap your hair in a twist to get some movement...or a perm.

Living in Southern California my entire life I have seen many trends weave in and out, but one thing is for sure: California has its own twist. Our easy breezy interpretations of trends make California have its own style. Never stuffy and never overdone. The latest trend of natural beauty was basically created in this state. Yes, we have studied all different skin care and hair care, honoring countries that take beauty to another level. But we have learned how to make it truly our own.  A perfect example of old world traditions meeting new school beauty is the Prive hair care line.  Founded by Laurent D., a reputable French hairstylist, and now a staple in California salons.  Tradition is relatively new in this young state, but it is quickly becoming a leading force in wine, food, and the beauty industry. Cheers to all that work hard in this state and stay true to our Californian ways!

Women in their twenties have the freedom to not use too much product.  Their youthful skin has not yet been compromised with sunspots and fine lines.  So staying protected from the sun is of the utmost importance at this age.  I’m never outdoors without bringing along my COOLA SPF 30 lip balm and a tube of SPF 20 Rose Essence Tint to protect from the sun while helping with oil-control and unwanted shine. If you’re heading to the beach this summer, you’ll probably still want to apply a little makeup before hitting the sand with your friends.  Be sure to set your makeup with our SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray to give your young skin extra protection against sun and sweat!  And don’t forget your travel size Evian facial spray to help you stay cool and fresh-faced all summer long.

          Summer makeup is not an easy subject for a 40+ mother of two boys living in a quiet Southern California town. Let’s face it, if we tone it down any more we would have to reverse make up … and I don’t even know what that means. But this is what I do know: if you like makeup (I adore it) and want to wear something without looking too done-up, there are a lot of products out there that you can be thankful for.

          A great face can start with a great primer. Luminos Moisturizer by KEYS is amazing.  This is 100% natural, and the scent will let you know it (it’s almost medical). It is fab for a complexion that needs more moisture for a little evening out. It really helps with redness, too. Next I like applying the ever-so-light Glo Minerals Sheer Tint Base. Then I add Glo Minerals Contour Kit in medium-dark. Finally I add some brows and mascara. Maybe a bright summery lip, and voila! I am ready to sweat in the park with my kids. Just add some eyeliner to go to dinner with the husband.  Simple as that!

Whoops, I did it again. That’s right I said it.  Brittany-inspired lyrics that remind me of a tan toned stomach of my youth. Back in those days I had a close friend that I still quote, “If you can’t tone it, tan it.” And I did…the worst was the tanning bed. Who does not love being tan? There have been years between those days and now that I have taken care of my skin. But I still slip up. For a person that just got her first basal cell cancer removed you would think that I would be diligent about the sun. But it is a perfect Southern California beach day, the kids rush out of the car towards the water, and I slather on sunscreen once and ignore my skin the rest of the day. Ouch! It is time to cover up. Not just for other people’s sake, but for the health of my skin. But wearing a full sunscreen shirt sounds itchy. And the tiny umbrella that gives you a 2 feet diameter just won’t do. So after my cancer removal and my first summer season burn I took one of our Lovin’ Summer beach tents from the studio and was completely protected. Yes I put Coola Sunscreen on, yes I put COCOOIL spf 15 on my legs, but the best protection for me is staying out of the sun altogether. Which the tent did so well!

Cheap drugstore-brand soap can leave your skin drier than the Sahara.  In the old days, soap was made with some pretty nasty stuff, like wax and things we can’t even pronounce, let alone spell.  Needless to say, soap has been given a bad rap over the years.  Well we’re here to clear its good name! Bar soaps tend to last longer than a tube of shower gel, and are often more affordable.  So you’re less likely to break the bank with soap.  And who needs a fancy bottle taking up precious counter space?  Soaps come in interesting shapes and scents, without hogging all the room in your shower.  Many soaps contain essential oils, which means your skin will stay hydrated and the fragrances last longer. If you’re worried about putting unhealthy chemicals on your body, you’re not alone.  We’ve found that a lot of companies nowadays are choosing more natural ingredients for their soaps – like goat’s milk and oatmeal.  Check out natural options by Etta+Billie and Beekman. So the debate is over and while we are definitely obsessed with a luxurious bar of soap, it’s a personal preference in the end.  There are benefits to both options and don’t worry, we won’t judge whichever choice you make.
