Is there a better time of year to talk about masks than Halloween? Not that I need an excuse; if you’re a regular reader, you know about my undying love for masks of all kinds. I came across these sheet masks from major-league Korean brand Tony Moly recently, and didn’t think twice about about giving them a try.
I love Soap & Glory. I imagine a lot of people do, as they are one of the top-selling bath and skincare brands out there. But no kidding, their stuff is awesome. The Clean On Me Body Wash is amazing, not only for it’s potent feminine scent, but the fact that you get a ton of product for around $10 is enough to win over even the most critical of skeptics. I’ve recently been in the market for a facial cleanser, so when I saw that they just introduced a new one to their line, I couldn’t resist snapping it up and giving it a go. Enter the Face, Soap and Clarity Brightening Face Wash.
For some of us, there are foods and beverages that are simply synonymous with summertime. And one that certainly ranks high with me is watermelon. I have cracked into more than my fair share, and a fresh, cold, delicious watermelon on a scorching day can make you feel like a million bucks.

And because there are quite literally limitless options for this cousin of the rose, I’m going to keep it brief, maybe hit a few high points, and possibly let you in on a little trivia that you may not have heard about these ruby-red gems. So read on as I ramble through the strawberry fields…okay, no more puns, I promise!
So I noticed that it had been awhile since the last Herb Series installment – slap me on the wrist! This time around we’ll look at thyme, and I solemnly vow to keep the “thyme/time” puns to a minimum. With that out of the way, let’s explore this very common little herb that has more interesting uses than being sprinkled on chicken.
