Ahava: Deadsea Mineral Bath Salts

The mysteries of life are beyond comprehension. Last night before I knew the sorrow today would bring my ailing lower back called me to soak in Ahava Lavendar Bath Salts. I had avoided lavender baths for years because they reminded me of my ex, who I loved dearly and lost to the diseases that are the cruel mystery of this world.

So there I was, crippled in pain. Soaking in natural salts straight from the dead sea. Completely unaware that his life was coming to an end at that very same moment.

I soaked as long as I could hoping some visceral yet subconscious wave would wash over my scared, exhausted body and bring some of the magic healing of the dead sea with it. Ahava led me into that night and revealed the great promise of the dead sea: a healing oasis is possible amidst the greatest faith and strife on earth.

That was three weeks ago. I slept that night with a peace I had not known in years and I've needed every ounce of that peace to make it through the shock of the next morning and the last three weeks. Take heed from the geographic axiom of the dead sea: the greatest peace is something you can reach for amidst the greatest unrest. Take some sacred healing tools with you on this sweet, heart-breaking journey.

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.
