Tocca-Cleopatra-Candelina.jpgI honestly can’t believe I’ve never written about the fabulousness of the Tocca Cleopatra Candelina. This is one of my all-time favorite beauty items and has been for years—it’s just a shame I’m only sharing it with you now.

Truth be told, I love every single Tocca scent. But none of them can hold a candle (pardon the pun) to Cleopatra. In any case, this candle smells absolutely divine. A blend of cucumber and grapefruit notes makes it sound horrible, but trust me—it’s anything but. This candle is light, crisp, fresh and just a touch zesty, and I can’t help but smile every time I light it.

Plus, it’s presented in elegant cut glass and burns for around 30 hours. THIRTY! And it’s a travel candle! I just think that’s miraculous.

Kim Kardashian went for a bold statement on New Year’s Eve in a super-fitted dress that gave the illusion of being see-through — and the dress was really just an “accessory” to her bombshell pregnancy announcement. Yet, if you could tear your eyes away from her dress (or seemingly lack thereof) for a second, you just might actually see her hair. It appears that Kimmy K went for a multi-braid effect, pairing some smaller, thin braids into thicker low braids and then topping it off with a long and loose french braid that went from the left side of her head across to the other side. This is a style that truly requires an extra set of hands, and one who knows a thing or two about various braiding techniques.

The Body Shop has been known for its body butters longer than many bath lines have been in the game. And anyone who’s tried them before knows just how great they are. They absorb quickly, leave amazing fragrances behind and moisturize deeply. Their Love Etc.
