Link to More Advice for Friends: Natural Moisturizer and Eye Cream

I have some pretty fantastic Christmas presents to tell you guys about, but I thought I'd wait until Tuesday after I go shopping with my mom (which is her Christmas present to me). I'm sure that I'll have even more great things to share after that! Today's post is less about Christmas gifts and more about advice. My friend Kristen recently had a couple of questions for me about moisturizer and eye cream. I decided address most of her questions in a post since they all seemed pretty relatable. Her Problem: She told me that she'd been using Bobbi Brown Hydrating

Danielle and I made homemade bath soak for some of our friends and gave them away as Christmas presents this year. The scents that we ended up with were appropriately named Tangerine Raspberry, Lavender Vanilla, Lemon Jasmine, Lavender Spearmint, and Lavender Peppermint. We used old wine, whiskey, Irish cream, and gin bottles as containers, and the fact that we had ten of those with lids just lying around may make us seem like a bunch of lushes...but, in our defense, we have a lot...

Yesterday, in my second Christmas list post, I mentioned to you guys that a deodorant review was on the way.  I typed it up shortly after that post. I couldn't wait to tell the world about Erbaviva Lemon & Sage Deodorant!

Getting down to business is what I do best. Ingredients (provided at erbaviva.com)- "Organic grain alcohol. Essential...
