tachalipbalmI may have just fallen in love.

I am no stranger to lip balm. In fact, based on how many coat pockets lip balm is tucked away in, you'd probably think lip care was my number one priority. It's funny, such a little thing that means so much to me. My family reminded me the other day that I clearly show how much I love lip balm by giving my favorites as gifts every year in their stockings (and they are still stocked up).

Well, meet Gold Spun Camellia Lip Balm by Tatcha, an ultra-hydrating lip balm made of nourishing Camellia oil. This balm is the bomb! It leaves your lips super soft with a golden shimmer. Enriched with Camellia oil and Squalene, it absorbs quickly and smoothly. Camellia oil is rich in oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E as well as Omegas 3, 6 and 9. I love that it's formulated without mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, parabens, PEGs, PPGs, DEA, TEA, urea or phthalates. 

Glossy finish, 23-karat gold flakes and a touch of sensual shimmer. Bam!

We all need an easy heel to work in. There's no reason to compromise style, either. When you can get it at the right price, too — homerun!

Enter the almost sold out Antonio Barbato leather and suede pointed strap heel. A mere 3 inches in height, you can strut your stuff in confidence. What I love most about this shoe is its versatility. Where can it not go?

sassypantsWith holiday outfit coordination in full swing, these pants have to make an appearance.

Portuguese-born duo Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida met back in 2007 while enrolling for fashion school. They teamed up while starting Fashion MA at the prestigious Central Saint Martins and the result — a youthful, unfinished and effortless aesthetic. And these statement-making pants lend themselves to so many opportunities, from girls' night out to the company holiday party (paired with a fitted, cropped velvet top).

These Marques Almeida bi-color black and white flared trousers make quite the addition to one's wardrobe.

marnileatherearringsOf all the versions of leather earrings I have seen, this season brings the best. Like these fabulous embellished leather flowers from Marni.

This drop flower on brass is a piece of art. I imagine pairing it with something as simple as distressed skinnies and a Wilt tee. However, just as awesome with a black tie ensemble.

VitaminEeyebalmBack in April, I had the opportunity to meet the founder of One Love Organics, Suzanne LeRoux, while visiting Savannah, GA. Having made the switch to natural, non-toxic skin care years ago, I had already been using a few of her products when we met.

I love what this skin care line contains as much as I love what it doesn't contain. One Love Organics uses the most effective ingredients on the market, like their award–winning organic chia supercritical extract, innovative plant stem cells and clinically proven D’Orientine S. And their list of nevers: GMO, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Nanoparticles, Silicon, PEG, Synthetic perfumes and dyes. Fantastic!

That day, I walked away with a new product in hand, the Vitamin E Eye Balm, a powerful blend of Vitamin E, organic shea butter, pomegranate and sea kelp. Not even halfway through the container, this stuff lasts forever! It's super hydrating and can be used morning (sparingly) and evening (generously). 100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin and 91% of the total ingredients are from organic farming. More impressive, One Love Organics’ award-winning skin care products are produced in micro-batches at the company’s ECOCERT® licensed manufacturing facility in St. Simons Island, Georgia.

If you haven't made the switch to all natural goodness, this is a great line to transition into. Your skin will love it! And so will your wallet.
