For 12 weeks, I’ve been using the Extreme Defense Anti-Cell Damage Skin Treatment made by CELL CEUTICALS. I have used it medium to heavy on my chest area and lightly on my face. During my use of this product I have not received any new sun spots which is one of my biggest battles so I do love that it protects my skin from the environment that I live in. I’m almost through using the 1 fl oz bottle that I have and will be moving on to other products that I would like to try but this is on my list as one of my favorite skin treatments.

I found these lovely wedge platform shoes. A perfect compliment to a summery dress and a simple night on the town with friends or family. Both pairs are on sale now for $70. The extra 25% discount will be taken off during checkout. Not bad for a designer pair of shoes regularly priced for $98.

As a native of Kauai I prefer to call these creations of art pareos. Most people know them as sarongs. On an island, these are handy pieces of fabric because they can be used for so many different things. My favorite uses out of them are skirts, swimsuit coverups or a beach towel if I don’t want to carry a bulky terry cloth towel. There are many sarong companies to order from. The one I recommend would be 1 World Sarong. They seem to have an endless selection of colors and prints to choose from including solids and half sarongs. I’v included e a 1 minute VIDEO on how to tie a sarong into a skirt. This is my favorite way to use a sarong. You would need a half sarong for this type of style.

Living on an island, you can never have too many slippers. HAVAIANAS is one of my favorite brands to purchase slippers from. The best out of all their styles is the slim or top styles embellished with crystals. Perfect for the beach, running around town complimented by a sun dress or a warm night out with skinny jeans. With the affordable price, Havaianas makes it easy to have a couple pairs or more. The slippers in my pictures are from past seasons. You can visit their website for the new styles that are similar to mine. A good one to get would be the slim crystal flower that retails for $38.

It’s only September but what better time than now to start shopping for what’s on your Christmas list. William Sonoma hand soaps, lotions and candles are the best sink side accessories for your kitchen. Their new scent Spiced Chestnut is perfect for the holiday season coming up shortly. Yes, it’s a bit early for the smell of Christmas in the air but now is a good time to pick up this scent while it’s in stock and stash it away until the day after Thanksgiving.

I started using this product out of curiosity because I’ve heard of the many benefits of chinese herbs. You can use this LINK for chinese herb FAQ’s.

I’ve been using it along with my everyday shampoo and conditioner and after 3 weeks of use, I had less hair loss when brushing my hair.

I love, love, the Mud Pie collection. I was given the seashell platter as a birthday present a couple of years ago and since then, I’ve been collecting mud pie pieces whenever I find a piece I like to add to my collection. This 3 piece set is made with glazed terracotta with embossed shell and starfish detail and comes with a natural shell serving spoon to complete the set.
