I’ve realized that the only true “me-time” I get on many days is when I take a shower, and my muscles release stored tension from work and family. The soothing sound of water pouring drowns out anyone calling for my attention and I’m in my own little world. Though it may only be for a few precious minutes each day, I have learned to efficiently unwind and also treat myself and my skin to a luxurious ritual, Molton Brown’s Pink Pepper Body Polisher. The new Body Polisher line is superb, with subtle differences in composition and texture for each- like a distinct personality! I love the energizing feeling I get on my skin from the spicy-sweet Pink Pepper, and the smoothness of moisturized skin is palpable even as the polisher rinses off.

Pink is everywhere (even refs in the NFL games!) to acknowledge and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mother is a brave breast-cancer survivor, so I love supporting the cause whenever possible. HairArt International, which is a highly respected family-owned leader in hair tools and appliances, has put out a special series H3000 Collection of high-tech heat styling designs in pink which were created to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation. NBCF will receive 10% of the proceeds from this fabulous collection, which is not only fun and girly, but incredibly functional. Ever since I heard Ken Paves say that wet hair is particularly vulnerable to breakage, I’ve winced when tugging a brush through my long hair after a shower. That all changed when I discovered HairArt’s H3000 Tourmaline Ceramic Boar Bristle Round Brush which is gentle and forgiving, but still gets the job done. I’ve often heard that boar bristles are the big secret behind luscious, healthy hair, while working well with heat styling. The brush does add lustrous shine, great volume allows for styling minus the static. This well-balanced ionic brush features a ceramic barrel to distribute heat evenly and a lightweight handle for easy styling. I’m forever looking for an outstanding comb that I can use for precise styling and straightening, and HairArt’s comb series fits the bill. They are specially designed to resist heat and add extra shine to hair while resisting that pesky static cling.
It’s never too early to expose the younger set to the world of art, especially since imaginations run wild and creativity abounds in fresh minds. An introduction easily made at home is with the bright and colorful book SIX, which is no ordinary counting board book. The author Katherine Bradford is an accomplished New York artist who is known for her portrayal of ships and water, which I find luminous and whimsical. Her work is displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Portland Museum.
