Jo-Malone-Red-Roses-Home-Candle.jpgThe most luxurious, most heady, most divine candle around? It’s most definitely the Jo Malone Red Roses Home Candle.

We’ve long been enamored of all that Jo Malone has to offer. The body creams, the fragrances, the candles … all so utterly divine, we’ve basically cloaked our entire apartment in the line. But there’s something undeniably special about the Red Roses fragrance in all its forms — and, most importantly, as a candle.

The scent is powerful but not overpowering, sensual but not over the top. It envelops the room without taking over, and leaves behind a scent of roses that can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.

The fragrance itself is comprised of seven different types of roses from around the world — but it also incorporates crushed violet leaves, lemon and spearmint for an aroma that’s at once invigorating and incredibly sensuous.

And the jar? It’s simple but not stark — the clear glass jar, filled with white wax, looks so beautiful atop a vanity or dressing table.

The Jo Malone Red Roses Home Candle retails for $65 at

A Beautiful Life Honey’Do Shampoo
We have a confession to make. The honey that comes in a bear-shaped bottle at the grocery store? We buy it just because it’s cute. And this shampoo, also in an adorable bear-shaped bottle? What could be better in your shower?

Gwen as a mermaid is maybe the cutest Harajuku fragrance yet! We’ve loved mermaids ever since Splash, so this perfume definitely is right up our alley.

We hate writing posts like this, but what’s going on with Esmee Denters’ hair? Her signature straight bangs and wavy layers are being subjected to fake shades of blonde and crimping! She needs to go back to her old look (far right), which was subtly sexy and much prettier.

We recommend Esmee get a bottle of this No Frizz styling cream, and quick.

Watch her Love Dealer video with Justin Timberlake below for a look back at her once-lovely locks and flawless natural makeup including stunning eyelashes. What do you think?

EOS-Hand-And-Body-Lotions.jpgLotion is a subjective thing. One person might like it, while another thinks it’s too greasy or watery. But we’re fairly certain everyone can agree on the brand-new range of eos Hand and Body Lotions.

The three moisturizers in this range make even the roughest, toughest skin so soft and smooth in an instant — and, thankfully, they sink into skin without leaving behind any greasy residue. (Perfect when you have to go right to your computer keyboard after rubbing it into your skin.)

Choose from the following three hand and body lotions, each formulated to leave skin touchably soft:

Boost Complete Care
Nourish Revitalizing Care
Refresh Active Care

In addition, each of the three lotions contains natural antioxidants and both Vitamins C and E, so your skin is so revitalized and nourished, you simply wont believe it. They’re also enriched with moisturizing shea butter and oat extract to protect skin from cold, wind and stress.

eos Hand and Body Lotions retail for $7.99 each at
