Beauty Buzz: Beautycounter

When I was young I slapped on whatever face cream I grabbed from a shelf at the local pharmacy (price played a large role in my selection). My go-to shampoo and conditioner was made by Suave. Remember that one that had such a distinctive smell? I was young and naive then but now I know… read more

Hello From: Chronicles of Him & Her

One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about being a blogger is the market research. Since starting The Sentimentalist I have spent hours upon hours (John recently asked me if I had gotten to the end of the internet?!?) getting to know other blogs. It’s amazing how many talented people are out there in this… read more

Make-Up Break Up!

I recently dropped my absolute favorite Laura Mercier eyeshadow on the tile floor and alas I thought she was gone for good. Gold Dust is a discontinued color… And then something happened that I consider to be a rarity these days –  I remembered something someone had told me. Yup. I did. My sister told… read more

Red Wine, Coffee, Chocolate, and Berries… All God’s gifts to our universe. Alas they sometimes leave a lasting impression where lasting impressions are very much unwanted. We all know the drill. A glass of red wine, and a top-off, and a top-off and a top-off… and voila! You have stained lips and tinted teeth. Eek!… read more

Love your lips people! Especially as the winds start to whip up, the air gets drier, and the weather gets colder this winter. eos (Evolution of Smooth) is a brand worth knowing. Their balm is the bomb! The orb-shaped packaging of their lip balm is super cool and makes them easy to find in the… read more

Smooth Sailing

Wrinkles beware – Embryolisse has got their eye on you. This lightweight moisturizer absorbs quickly and smells heavenly. Its ever so subtle scent has just a hint of fresh flowers like gardenia and freesia. I swear by it, but don’t take my word for it. The hottest model around, Karlie Kloss says, “Embryolisse is where it’s at.”… read more

Face Time

  With a new school year upon us Mama has to make sure she gets her face on in time for carpool. I keep it very simple during the day. Elixir, BB Cream, under-eye concealer, chubby stick, and blush. For nighttime I like to jazz it up a little bit more while still sticking to a… read more
