I’ve been pretty vocal about my love of Living Proof hair care products over the last year (check out my Living Proof review), and I continue to buy them… despite the fact that replenishing my shampoo and conditioner now costs $50. Yikes. Unfortunately, it’s just not a brand that goes on sale… until today, that is.
Living Proof, Kérastase and a bunch of other designer hair care brands like Aveda, Oribe, and Fekkai are all on sale at Zulily today, and I highly recommend stocking up! I’m hitting myself right now because I spent mega bucks buying all of this stuff last Friday, but it’s never too soon to buy more, right?!
I prefer the Living Proof Curl line, and the shampoo and conditioner typically cost $26 each. The Conditioning Wash is included in the Zulily sale today for $17.79, which is a pretty hefty savings! I am TOTALLY stocking up.
There’s a great selection of products, although you’ll definitely find the biggest options from Living Proof and Kérastase.
My husband and I had an outdoor wedding, and the area where the reception would be held was all grass. As a result, I instructed our wedding guests that they probably wouldn’t want to wear high heels to our wedding, since there was a good chance their heels would sink into the grass and dirt. While I wore heels for the ceremony, I immediately removed them in place of flat sandals for the rest of the day. If only Solemates had existed back then!
Solemates are caps that you can put on your heels that will help to prevent your shoe from sinking into grass.
Here’s how it works:
“By increasing the surface area on the bottom of the heel (in a discreet and elegant way), the pressure is dissipated and you can walk across unsupportive or uneven surfaces with ease. ”
Solemates come in three different sizes so they should fit most heels, and they are available in clear, silver, black, and gold, so there’s a pair for every pair of shoes!
I had heard of Solemates before, but didn’t really pay much attention to them until I saw them pitch on Shark Tank last week.
Spoiler Alert: The company was able to secure a deal with investor Robert Herjavek, who was excited about the possibility of creating a new accessory category with them, since something like this hasn’t been created before.
I have a feeling Solemates are going to become a pretty trendy accessory, especially when you consider they only cost $12 per pair! You can also buy more pairs at a discount, including the Solemates Complete Collection, which includes 3 pairs of Solemates – one in each of the sizes – for $30. One pair should last you awhile, as Solemates are reusable so there’s no need to toss them after each use.
I had to do a double-take when I first came across Aubrey E Apothecary. Her handmade soaps look so real that I had to read the description to see that they were soaps! Hence, I become utterly obsessed!
Ummmm, don’t you want to gobble these up!? These Raspberry Lemon French Macaron Soaps are the perfect way to indulge your sense of sweetness, but without the calories. For $7.25 you get one yellow and one pink. If only real macarons came with them. It’s probably for the best. 🙂
Aubrey was kind enough to answer some questions. Enjoy!
1. What was the first soap you ever made?
I made a layered bar soap to look like candy corn! I’m a holiday nut and any excuse to create something for Halloween, Christmas or Valentine’s Day gets me excited and inspired.
2. Which is your favorite soap in your shop?
This is like trying to pick a favorite kid. =) My favorite during the holidays is the eggnog teacup soap, because I just go bananas for the scent and think it’s really cute and cozy.
3. Do you enjoy making soaps or lip products more?
It really depends on the day! Lately I’ve been making a lot of lip products to restock and I find it very relaxing. Soap is more high energy and go go go! I’m a little tired out from the holiday, so I’m enjoying the lip process right now.
Thanks Aubrey! I can’t recommend Aubrey E Apothecary enough!
I’ll be the first person to admit I’m not a huge fan of the Kardashian/Jenner crew, in the same way I’m not a fan of anyone or anything that’s overexposed. They could be mentioned 50 percent less and I’d still think I was seeing too much of them. I know the issue is that everything they do sells – and it sells big – but there hasn’t been a time they’ve sold anything that’s been of interest to me.
That all changed this morning though when I learned that Khloé Kardashian has launched a new line of designer denim, Good American Denim, that’s available in sizes 0-24 at Nordstrom. I’ve been pretty vocal about my support for size equality, so the fact that Khloé, and her business partner Emma Grede, wanted to be more size inclusive when launching this line gets nothing but praise from me.
The Khloé Kardashian jeans are supposed to compete with designer lines, which is why the price tag is pretty high.
According to Elle, the reason these jeans fit women across a range of sizes is because the jeans were formulated with a special type of “stretchy fabric.” It looks like most of the styles have this formulation: 93% cotton, 5% polyester, 2% elastane.
There are currently 16 different styles of jeans available and ALL of them are available in sizes 0-24! My apologies if skinny jeans aren’t your thing though, since nearly all of the styles are skinny jeans right now. I hope they add a couple of different styles soon because I’m personally a boot cut girl!
I’m really excited about this denim line from Khloé Kardashian, and while I know it’s going to be way too expensive for many people, my hope is that other brands start following suit and realize that it’s totally possible to create clothing in a larger range of sizes to accommodate more women.
