Phoebe and ThisThatBaby

As a new mom, I am all about all of the ‘Mother/ Daughter’ things. I absolutely love having a daughter and doing precious little girly things with her make me so happy.

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Narciso


A man once said to Narciso , “Every time my wife puts on one of your dresses, we never leave the house.” In the spirit of this sentiment, Narciso Rodriguez presents a fragrance that celebrates a woman’s powers of seduction. I must admit, after reading that intro to Narciso, I expected to be blown away. [...]

Oud Ispahan

With the holiday season upon us, I can’t help but get my into a gift-giving state of mind and, inevitably, fragrance is part of the equation. But pairing the right scent to the right individual can prove challenging…and even downright disastrous.  Luckily I’ve got friends in fragrant places.

#TTBToursLA: Le Trench Coat

Le Trench and ThisThatBeauty

The entire time I was in LA during #TTBToursLA, I sort of lived in Le Trench Coat. The shape, the fit, the texture, the fabric — everything about it is 100% my style and pitch perfect for travel.

High Notes – Fragrances from Britney Spears and One Direction

Britney Spears - Fantasy

If my picky boyfriend likes a certain perfume I’m wearing, it must be amazing — well, he fell in love with these.  I recently sampled Britney Spears Fantasy as well as One Direction’s You and I.

Mani of the Week: Featuring Tom Ford Black Cherry

Tom Ford Black Cherry

My mani this week reflects my mood — dark and intense.  I think the Tom Ford Black Cherry nail lacquer  is as close as you can come to wearing a black nail polish without actually wearing black. The benefit of not going all the way to a black polish is that it looks less harsh [...]

Crest 3D White Whitestrips Promises 2 Weeks To Your Whitest Smile


If you want bright, white sparkly teeth it is ill-advised to consume coffee and red wine on a regular basis. This basically leaves me up a creek without out a paddle  for two reasons: I love wine and absolutely love a nice glass after a pressing day. I’m the mom of a 14-month old….which basically [...]

#GiveGreatGifts This Holiday Season

Levis Cropped Pullover in Fairisle 3

Call me corny or a Miss Goody Two Shoes — but I sincerely believe it’s better to give than receive. For me, there’s a magical feeling that stirs my soul when I give something that makes the recipient light up. And, obviously, giving a great gift need not be expensive…it just has to be something [...]
