Soap & Glory: Pretty Scents Edition

In the midst of all of my Christmas shopping a few months back, I picked up this Soap & Glory bath and body gift set. It was on sale at a drug store (Walgreens, CVS or Rite Aid–I can’t remember which one) and the sweetest salesperson had a table set up, she was dressed in a pink tutu and peddling the bath set. The set was on sale for 50 percent off. It was originally $40 but on sale for $20. I though it was worth it. The package was pretty and the products looked and smelled good.

It’s February and I just got around to trying my body wash and body butter. Can I just say, “wow!” Your shower will smell amazing and you will leave a trail of pretty in your entire house. I love showering after a long day of work or after a workout and this scent helps in the destress process. It’s great for helping to wind down. The scent is very luxe and there is enough body wash here to last me close to a month. A little goes a long way. I layer my scents because it lasts longer so having the body wash and body butter in the set is great for layering.

I use the body wash, followed by a quick slather of the body scrub. After my shower, I leave a little moisture ok  my skin and moisturize with the body butter.

layer your scents so that they last longer

The set comes in a really cute pink box. It’s not reusable but the packaging looks like a big brand you can find in Sephora.
The star of the show. This body wash feels so silky. There is a bonus loofah and the lather is great on the loofah.
The scrub. I use it two or three times a week after showering with the body wash.
The bad ass body butter!
I keep the hand cream in my pocketbook and I’m getting my heels ready for summer with the Heel Genius.
The set comes with a thick pink loofah and this cute headband. Everything is soft and plush.

Pick up your set at Walgreens for 20 bucks!


Beyond the Drug Store: Foster Grant Sunglasses

When you browse your local drug store, be it Rite Aid or Walgreens, you might bump into this great brand of sunglasses. I don’t know about you but I love keeping a pair of not too expensive shades in my car or in the caverns of my purse just in case the paparazzi decides to crash my lunch with the ladies. Jokes! No, really, I love the sun but am not a fan of rays blasting through my pupils. I also don’t like the idea of keeping track of expensive shades. I’m busy. I’m a mom. I put things down on store counters or park benches and may never see them again.

This is why I am a fan of Foster Grant. They are celebrating 85 years of making shades and teamed up with Hollywood beauty, Kat Graham to do so. Take a peek at some behind the scenes of Kat shooting for Foster Grant below:

Here is a list of 5 of my favorite Foster Grant Shades:
