I was telling my friend Michelle the other day about the sheepskin insoles I put in whatever shoes I can fit them in—and most recently my fleece-lined Vans, because for some reason whoever designed those shoes decided not to line the soles, which makes for less than ideally cozy conditions. But with these insoles, my sneakers are as warm as my warmest snow boots. Michelle was like, Why don’t you post about that? And so I have.
I am so pleased that Nespresso doesn’t have a monopoly on pods for their machines (didn’t they at one time?); these Lavazza pods produce an excellently strong and notably delicious espresso.
I clean my face and remove makeup with Bioderma (this is their sensitive skin formulation) and what I love most about it is that it’s hydrating, as many cleansers can be on the drying side.
Mascaras come and mascaras go in my life, but I always have a tube of It’s So Big around, because it volumizes like nobody’s business, with nary a clump.
Now that I no longer live near the greatest apothecary in New York and maybe anywhere—I speak of C.O. Bigelow, of course—I order their lavender essential oil from Amazon. It truly has the best, richest,most relaxing scent, and helps knock me out when I’m having trouble sleeping. Also, when one of the dogs is in super cracked-out hyper mode, I dab a little on his wee forehead (where he can’t lick it off) and he chills right out.
