FashionComfy Cozy in PJ Salvage

pjsalvage

Brr!! Even though we’re on the brink of spring, it’s still so chilly outside that we just want to stay inside and be cozy in our pajamas. Do you feel the same way? If so, we say it’s the perfect time to invest in a luxe pair of PJs from PJ Salvage.

We love the gorgeous mens-inspired Luxe Modal PJ Set, made with a modal/elastane blend; this fabric is ultra soft and feels completely luxurious on the body. The pajama top is a classic button-front,  which is great if you want to slip a tank underneath, and features a chest-pocket; an adjustable drawstring waist bottom gives you the ultimate comfort. We love the simple contrast trim and the flattering cut, together which makes this pair of PJs a classic that you can wear for years to come.

Beauty, Home, SkincarePerfect Pairing: Winter Remedies

plants-dry-oil-body-mist-cactus_pink-pepper-highAt this point in the never-ending winter with snow in the forecast every week, I fear the groundhog was right and spring is not even teasing us yet! With romantic Valentine’s just past, there’s a lingering sweetness and hankering for all things pink and pretty. I have a couple favorites to share so we can all get through ’til the blooms peek out.

I’m convinced that Ahava’s Dry Oil Body Mist in Cactus + Pink Pepper was created with this time of year in mind, for both beauty and function. Just laying eyes on the beautiful pink frosted bottle on a chilly morning injects some of that elusive blossomy hue into my visual palette for the day. It’s amazing how a little color can warm the soul! A few spritzes of the mist absorbs instantly, leaving a satiny smooth feeling on my parched skin, especially on legs, knees, and arms. I really don’t feel oily or greasy, but still get the benefits of having moisture locked in with the Dead Sea plant oils. The unique light scent is feminine and sweet without being cloying, and is derived from the pink peppercorns of the berries of a South American tree. The cactus component offers its natural antioxidants along with magnesium, amino acids, flavonoids, and vitamin C. Jojoba and Sesame Seed Oils work with Vitamin E and Dunaliella Algae which are effective in smoothing and hydrating while protecting skin from free radical damage.

Beauty, SkincareDead Sea Essentials by AHAVA: Witch Hazel Skin Repair Balm

ahavaEver since I laid eyes on Ahava’s new Restorative Witch Hazel Skin Repair Balm, I’ve been obsessed with it: it’s literally like oversized chapstick for the body! The genius tube is so easy and fun to apply, a quick and effective fix for rough dry patches with no risk of over-squirting. My crackly knuckles, knees and elbows are spoiled by the satiny slather of rich witch hazel. While enjoying my moisturized hands, I did some quick research on witch hazel, which was used hundreds of years ago by Native Americans to lessen inflammation, treat itching and insect bites. It also contains antioxidants that can help protect against sunburn and aging from the sun.

Accessories, Fashion, Gift Guides, Jewelrythis valentine’s day, gift the jewelry

valentines day gift jewelryI recently read that technology might be killing the jewelry industry, specifically the brick-and-mortar fine jewelry establishments. This was somewhat depressing because I live in the core of the Los Angeles jewelry district, but I won’t take you down that road. Instead, I want to focus on the closing paragraph of the article, where a friend of the writer’s elected NOT to buy his graphic designer girlfriend diamond earrings as a gift because she couldn’t “use the earrings to make her artwork.”

What!? Who doesn’t want diamond earrings?!?

I write this post because on behalf of all the people out there who are tired of buying “junk jewelry” only to watch it fall apart one season later, we want better bling! READ MORE

Mom & Kids, SkincareP-R-E-P for the Future

kidsI was quite surprised during a recent conversation with a close girlfriend to find out that she doesn’t use SPF on her face on a regular basis, and she was in turn shocked that I do, even if I know I’ll be in the office or inside for most of the day. She happens to have lovely skin, a genetic blessing from her mother, which is priceless and so worth preserving. I realized then that good habits start young, so I was delighted to come across PREP, a newly launching dermatologist-founded and tested line of skincare for girls. It stands for Powerful, Real, Everyday, Protection and is entirely plant and mineral based, free of petroleum and parabens, and chock-full of yummy anti-oxidants. PREP is not only dedicated to improving the lives of young women, but gives back by participating in charitable campaigns.

To get my body and mind into shape, I’m a big fan of yoga (in addition to other fitness classes!). However, sometimes, it’s really hard to get to a class sometimes…whether it’s from a scheduling conflict or maybe you just need a change of pace from your regular class that you attend.

BeautyA Fresh New Year’s Eve

lipWith the Big Kiss looming tomorrow night, here are two beauty treats that are fun and functional, just in time to be fresh and sexy for midnight! A fierce but classic red lip is always alluring and kissable, and Rimmel’s Lasting Finish in 01 (true red, of course) surpasses expectations with its intense pigment, edge, and longevity. It was created by the beautiful Kate Moss in her first lipstick collection. The fierce red lip lasts for up to 8 hours, and the formula is infused with Black Diamonds to reflect light! The lipstick is surprisingly affordable at $5.49 and is available in drugstores.

marvinI brush my teeth at least three times a day (it’s an obsession!), and the event just became a little more luxurious with Italian-made toothpaste Marvis in Cinnamon Mint. It’s hard to go back to prosaic brands after experiencing the rich and creamy luxury formula with a spicy sweet flavor that’s sure to make a kiss linger. Besides uber-important removal of plaque, the sorbitol and glycerin base conditions and fortifies teeth and gums, leaving a spicy aroma of mint and cinnamon. Happy New Year!

The Daily Obsession draws from the expertise of a coast-to-coast editorial team offering dedicated readers reports of the most luxurious products and trends. We provide sophisticated and relevant angles on the latest fashion trends, must-have beauty products, insider interviews, travel destinations and of course, our current obsessions.
