June Jacobs Pumpkin Scrub Puts Everything Back Together

Remember a few months ago when I said everything fell apart? And I knew, because I'm the wise old age of 31, that it was just part of everything being put back together? Well, I was right. In a major way. Life is actually better than I could have ever imagined and it all started with this amazing, paraben-free, plush pumpkin scrub. 

In the middle of my life falling apart a lovely little package from New York's finest PR girls arrived and it had this detoxifying polish pouring over with powerful pumpkin enzyme,  crushed bamboo and jojoba micro beads to help remove every piece of dirt that was left over from my old toxic life. When it felt like I had nothing I started with this little bottle, held on to every ounce of faith, and started scrubbing away every ounce of toxins. And it worked. Remarkably well. I can't wait to tell you all about my new life. Enjoy!

For the Love of a Mani-Pedi

Yesterday was one of those days when it felt like everything was falling apart. The good thing about being 31 is that you know everything has fallen apart before and it's part of everything getting better. I also know it's best to wait it out in the care of your loving manicurist AND the best new color NYC's adorable PR girls can find. So. Lessons you can learn from my bad day 1. toxin free, feminine, beautiful nail colors can improve your day. 2. Butter's "Teddy Girl" is the most amazing thing I've had on my nails in the last two years.

Top 5 Things I Learned by Not Blogging

1) La Mer Radiant Concealer with SPF is a non-negotiable part of my beauty regiment. That I just ran out last week may or may not be related to my re-emergence as a pre-eminent blogger of all things beautiful in the world.

2) Life is best when you expect people to be as nice to you as PR girls (demand they exit when they consistently fail at this).

3) Organic really is best when it comes to beauty/household/anything that might give you cancer products.

4) Beauty IS about what's inside. If you loose your spark, it can come back from the inside out OR the outside in but it can never be borrowed.

5) People will miss what you write. My dear ex-step-mother and loyal reader Betty both
exclaimed today "You started blogging again!" Love that!



I know, I left you. It's been a few years and, mostly, I had some things to figure out - offline.

Professionally, I've been building my chops as a social media strategist extraordinaire. Personally, I've been on the mat (power vinyasa style) and learning some old, hard lessons in the relationship department. With those lessons learned, a new (3 month old) job, a new apartment in a new town, I thought it was time to start writing again. I'll share what I've learned and of course the best ways to be absolutely fabulous to ourselves as beautiful, strong women.
