The Bittersweet Changes: 20-Somethings

Under extreme pressure, a lump of coal ultimately forms into a diamond. It’s found, shaped, revered, and endures many changes. This process seems tantamount to the journey you experience in your 20’s. I’ve had this conversation with a number of women, in their 20’s and beyond.

The Rundown
I had never heard of this film before unintentionally choosing it on Netflix. I love independent films, and adore independent films about the Middle East even more. Naturally, they are more relatable for me and I enjoy watching the advances and growth in that part of the world. I am so glad I stumbled across this film.

5 Great Body Washes

It’s so amusing to see the difference between men’s body washes {or lack thereof} and women’s. Ours are a romantically packaged creamy goodness that leave behind the essence of a tropical island in our bathrooms and on our bodies.  Honestly, I’m the subject every marketing team has in mind because I’m a total sucker for pretty packaging and fantasy smell goods.

Couture Colors

Browsing through some of the 2011 couture fashion shows, soft, almost innocent shades ruled the runways of Valentino and Elie Saab. On the other hand, vibrant reds jumped out at me like rubies in a pool of pearls. I adore this color combination.

Sonia Kashuk Bristle Hair Brush

If I had to narrow down the best purchases I’ve made in the last year or so, the Sonia Kashuk Bristle Brush has got to be in my top 5. I have long, fine, hair that tangles very easily. Too easily. For the past 6+months, I have completely given up on buying new brushes, and have been using my sisters brush daily. I am a huge fan of Sonia Kashuk, and think her Target collection is pure genius.

Beauty Box: Middle Part

Like many, my hair has gone through various styles over the years.  I’ve had layers, heavy bangs, side swept bangs, no bangs, a bowl haircut – I even had the zig- zag part down pat in middle school, and when someone asked me how I did it, I told them it was top secret.
