The Cologne Intense Collection, it doesn't get better than this sweet set of Jo's top fragrances. Velvet Rose & Oud is one of my favorites and the new Saffron is a beautiful blend of creamy warmth and a light spiciness. Great for daughters, moms or best friends!
Our whole family loves the diffusers. We have them in every bathroom. You can pair them with a body and hand wash for an elegant hostess gift. The family favorite is Lime, Basil & Mandarin. I also love the richness of Pomegranate Noir, and my best friend loves English Pear & Freesia.
The Wood Sage & Sea Salt Home Candle is the perfect holiday gift for yourself. Burn in the kitchen for a festive night, every night. Also love in Peony & Blush Suede.
Other favorite is the Peony & Blush Suede Collection. Cologne, body and hand wash, and a rich body crème. I would love this luxurious gift!

I woke up to 40 degree weather and was trying to decide what to do for my skin before I went to my 7 year old son's flag football game. There is nothing cuter than 6 seven year olds throwing footballs and trying to score touchdowns. And there is almost nothing worse for your skin than a wide open field with wind whipping across your face.
So I decided to layer M-61 Hydraboost Serum ($78) – full of water-binding vitamin B5 and moisturizing hyaluronic acid – under RéVive’s incredibly rich Intensité Créme Lustre Day SPF 30 ($385). It comes in a jar so it is really hydrating and thick.
My skin was hydrated, plumped and protected all morning, leaving me free to watch my little football star!

Those of you that know me know that I always travel with a Bluemercury tote. As I am headed to Boston tomorrow morning and my bag was feeling quite heavy I decided to go through and clean it out.
These are some of my favorite colors - if they weren't, why would they be traveling with me! 6 lipsticks, 6 lip glosses and 5 lip pencils, I think that works out to 200 different looks! Who needs to travel with any other accessory?

We were on our way out to a cocktail party the other night and my husband looked at me and said - you look tired. Of course I do - I have 3 kids, a growing and fun company, a frog, a guinea pig and of course, a husband!
I ran up to my bathroom and grabbed Trish's Instant Eye Lift ($38). This little package has a miracle pinky-glowy cream that you just dab under your eyes with your fingers after all of your makeup is on. It draws natural light to your under-eye area.
The result is instant sleep! Thank you Trish!

Trish and her team just sent me all of the new creamy, smooth Beauty Booster Lip and Cheek Color pencils ($30) – they are so easy to use and to pop in your purse.
My favorite is Perfect Plum, an all day neutral. But I also really love Perfect Rose and Perfect Pink. The red doesn’t work on me – but I know many bluemercury clients will love it.
Also – her new lip pencils are so universal they go with all of these and the thousand lipsticks I already own. It’s all about lips!

BEST SELLER Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush - We keep selling out. Portable, easy and great with any cleanser.
NEW Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy - Line filling and plumping, at my age (44) I need this.
NEW NEST Fragrances Maison de Nest - Does holiday gifting get any better — why can’t we all give our best friends a Parisian townhouse for the holidays?
