This spray is absolutely divine, if we do say so ourselves. A combination of violet, tonka bean, lemon leaf and soft musk blend with the aforementioned lavender to create a scent that’s rich and heady.
We love spritzing this throughout our home on a daily basis. It eliminates all odors, from leftover cooking smells to kitty litter! And, what’s better than a dose of spring inside—no matter what the temperature or weather outside? It just makes us feel like we’re in the midst of a huge field of lavender, which we’re certain is exactly the point.

We’ve long loved red hair, but the new onslaught definitely has us thinking about taking on a bold new hue. If you’re thinking about going red, there are a couple things to keep in mind:
1) Red hair fades FAST! It’s important to use color-safe shampoos and conditioners—or, better yet, use products formulated for red hair, like Ted Gibson Captivating Copper Shampoo ($24.99 at tedgibsonsalon.com).
2) Try to wait a few days in between washes so the color lasts longer.
3) If at all possible, get your color done at a salon. Too many reds gone wrong have ended up as orange! A colorist can help you achieve the shade you want with minimal damage.
So what do you think about the bevy of red-tressed celebs out there as of late?
We love that this oversized tub makes us feel like we’ve been transported to a relaxing spa. Inside is a creamy salt scrub that’s formulated with skin-softening body butters from Africa.
We’ve been using this scrub two to three times a week, especially on our dry and ashy legs and elbows, and it’s amazing how quickly we’ve seen a difference. That’s thanks not only to the salt grains and the body butters, but to Community Trade organic beeswax and shea butter. Ximenia, an oil extracted from the ximenia tree native to Africa, also helps to moisturize and condition the skin.
Plus, with this scrub’s intoxicatingly sensual fragrance, is it any wonder we’ve gone head over heels?
