Finally, it is Spring and the sun is shining! Naturally, that means it’s time to pull out the short sleeves and…sunscreen! One of our biggest mistakes is not using proper sun protection. It’s the biggest step you can take to prevent aging and skin cancer. Here’s a sunscreen essentials checklist –

  • Broad-spectrum. This is one of the most important aspects of a sunscreen. Broad-spectrum simply means that it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays cause aging and UVB rays cause burning.
  • Reapply. For all day protection, it’s essential to reapply sunscreen. It won’t last all day through sweat and day-to-day activity.
  • Use sunscreen year round. Even on cloudy days, up to 40% of the sun’s rays reach the Earth, so no skipping!

Now that we’ve covered the basics, allow me to introduce our NEW SPF 30 Face Moisturizer! It’s a broad-spectrum, lightweight moisturizer that also serves as a makeup primer or aftershave. It’s formulated with Vitamins E, A, B, C, & D to hydrate and green tea anti-oxidants to protect against environmental damage.

Spring has sprung!

Spring has finally arrived, unlike those lucky enough to live in LA and enjoy sunshine and mild temperatures since January, we New Yorkers are just now experiencing highs in the 50s. That means it’s time to open up the windows, box up the wool sweaters and brunch al fresco. As much as I hate cleaning, there’s something about the warmer temperatures that makes me pull out the vacuum and rearrange my bedroom. I’ve already switched my Cannabis Candle for the Geranium Leaf and put my Rose Hand+Body Wash at all of my sinks. I’ve decided to start checking things off my Springtime-to-do list. Here’s some of what I am hoping to tackle this Spring –

The Cloisters.

Art in the park = Perfect Saturday. Enough said.

The Frying Pan.

Full disclosure, this is one of my favorite bars and I go multiple times a year. This boozy boat reminds me of being back home in the South and they serve ice cold beer in buckets. Ah, I can already feel the breeze on my face.

Central Park Canoe.

I’m disappointed that I’ve never tackled this activity before. I love being near the water and I love canoeing, so this Spring I will finally partake in this must-do activity. Wish me luck, I am also a klutz.

Help me out with some more fun outdoor activities. What are y’all’s Spring plans?

Everyone makes plans on Valentine’s Day, whether it’s with your significant other, your best buds, or Netflix. No matter what your plans are – take the little extra time to pamper yourself! Here are some ways to treat yourself this February 14th!

Soak in a warm Rose and Chamomile Oil bath.

Add a few pumps of the Rose Hand+Body Wash for a bath full of floral bubbles. Incorporate several drops of our Chamomile Treatment Oil for extra soft, touchable skin.

Bonus tip: The Chamomile Treatment Oil is a perfect massage oil.

Scrub your way to kissable lips.

Don’t forget your pucker when exfoliating with our Jojoba Face Scrub. Gently massage the cream based scrub over lips for a few seconds. Rinse with warm water and follow up with our intensely hydrating Lip Moisturizer.

Mood lighting.

After you’ve soaked and buffed, it’s time to set the mood. Light up an Absolute Rose Candle, after trimming the wick of course! The soft middle notes of Moroccan rose are brightened with top notes of ivy and pear.

Sit back and enjoy the rest of your evening. xoxo

Pump up the hat hair.

This winter is about survival mode. With temperatures staying below freezing regularly, a cute outfit is the farthest thing from my mind. The ultimate goal of evading frostbite doesn’t change the fact that we still need to look presentable. As fashionable as some winter hats are – I mean, at times they complete my outfit! – If I do need to shed that extra layer up top, my hair will definitely need some extra loving. Here are the M+G products that swoop in and fix my flattop.

  • Hair Pomade – This firm-hold styling aid stands up to hat weather. Before I leave the house, I massage a small amount into my roots for volume. When I get to my destination, I still have a great “pop” at the root.
  • Sage Styling Cream 1oz. – I keep this little gem in my bag. Not only does it hydrate my locks, but it gives my fine hair a great manageable tousled look, volume, and shine.

If I’m going to slowly freeze to death, I’m going to look good while doing it.
