So many good products, not enough time to write about them all – But I’ll try!
Ofcourse you know about this product if you have Frizzy hair. You put it on wet hair after the shower, and it dries less frizzy. It also glossifies your hair, makes it shiny, but doesnt grease it up. I put it on, then blow dry and flat iron it out and my hair feels very soft. It doesnt wear my hair down at all, but when it gets humid, I end up putting my thermal wax on the ends to keep my hair from completly fuzzing up. but I use this first. The nice thing about this is it manages the frizz without making your hair so heavy and oily that it ends up looking dirty. The shampoo and conditioner from John Freida is also good.. but not moisturizing enough for my thick/dry hair.
Best hand soap hands down. Moisturizes and leaves hands scented with that clean dove scent.. I love that scent
I’ve been waiting for a good ancho chili and chocolate mix. 2 christmas’ ago I gave out some Amedei Porcelano squares of chocolate with little bags of individual ancho chilis wrapped with ribbon (the idea was from martha stewart living magazine) and instructions on how to make a spicy hot chocolate.. And the taste was delicious, since then I’ve loved spicy chocolate and although this was very expensive, 2 small squares for 1.99 at Whole Foods, it was very good. Its a 55% cocoa blend with ancho and chipotle chilis and ceylon cinnamon. The chocolate is sweet and has a mild lingering heat that isn’t too spicy. Yum.
A friend who lives in Chinatown introduced me to this place, and the pork soup dumplings that have become a tradition and a constant craving for me and my fiance, Mike. If you’ve never had a soup dumpling, basically its a piece of pork with seasonings mixed inside a dumpling along with soup. So you bite into the dumpling and all the soup is all hot inside, you blow it cool, add a few drops of this vinegary soy sauce they give you, and bite. Mm, my mouth is watering just typing this. Good chinese food, good prices. Shang Hai Cuisine(212) 732-8988

My favorite scented collection for the summer from Bath and Body Works is Cherry Blossom. I like the Ultimate Silk Body Lotion because its powdery but not overly drying. Its perfect for the hotter days when you need to stay dry, plus the scent lasts. I layer it with the body spray – and also use the shower gel, and shampoo and condition for complete coverage! And i never smell too strong, it reminds me of the start of spring.. And the cherry is not foodie at all, but fresh and floral. The best of their many scents, in my opinion.
As you can see from the pic, these are nipple covers – for all your super sheer comfy bras that provide no coverage. I like these because I have a habit of changing into these fabulous but thin sports bra tanks that I got from nordstrom rack at night (they are comfortable enough to sleep in) but even with a dark tee on top.. They always show! I can’t leave the house with the faintest "high beams" so these are perfect.. They warm up and you WILL forget that you are wearing them, but try not to.. Your ladies must breathe overnight.. Washable.. Very thin at the edges so be careful you don’t tear em. A nice gift for the modest girl friend. About $26 at http://www.amazon.com
I picked this one up because they were in limited supply, the company had basically reformulated their perfume and these were the leftovers. Its a very delicate scent.. Notes are: Almond, vanilla, light musc. The combination smells of loukoum without the rose.. Simple and pretty. Its an eau de toilette so it doesn’t last long enough on me. And I am a fan of packaging and the bottle on this thing sucks. But otherwise I like. $95 at http://www.luckyscent.com
