Magic from Morocco

I actually was going to wait another week to post about this magical oil from Morocco, but I just can't wait to spread the word about this stuff.    

I am sure some of you may already know about this, but maybe you haven't tried it or you haven't heard a word about, because unlike me you have never been stuck at home on a Friday night with nothing but QVC to watch. Don't judge, Joan Rivers is a genius. ANYWAY. This all started when I was watching QVC as mentioned above (I swear this was a one time thing. I also learned about Diamonique that evening, but that is a post for another day) and there was a segment for Josie Maran argan oil and I think it included some sort of blush stick as a bonus. I must admit that I was intrigued, but couldn't focus on the product. Between Joan Rivers making jokes about the people that were milling around the fake garden studio set and Josie Maran constantly applying the oil and the stick to her face, skin, hair, lips to the point that was a little insane I was a little distracted. However this stuck in my brain.       


So while perusing the interwebs the other day and deciding that I need to buy a clarisonic and if I spent $50 more dollars I could get free shipping, I remembered the argan oil. So in my cart, checked out and through the mail it went. As soon as I received it I cleaned my face and put it on and true to Josie's word it was fast absorbing, moisturizing and non-greasy. IT DID WHAT IT SAID! Amazing. Throughout the week I have been using this day and night and I am not kidding that I saw a difference immediately and see even more of a difference every day. My skin is balanced, my rosacea lessened, my complextion glowing, but not like a grease pit and you only use a few drops so it lasts! Love, Love, Love.

There are a several ways to order the oil (Sephora, Nordstrom, QVC, etc.) and I used the Josie Maran version, but since it's pure oil I am sure you could use any source. Another great thing about this oil is that it also helps women of the rural region of Morocco where the Argan trees grow.  All argan sold today is produced by a women's cooperative that provides a fair work environment and wages to women of the region. You can find more information about this by going to http://www.arganoilsociety.org/argan-oil-women-cooperatives.

Big Day, Big World

Ever have one of those days where nothing is going wrong, but it doesn't feel quite right? Well that is my Monday. Oh well what can you do but get out of bed, get dressed and try to drink as much coffee as possible before being late for work.

This morning I woke up around 6:30am because I realized in my sleepy/awakeness time (you know where you are in between the two) that I had not booked the hotel for my BF and myself for our trip to NYC yet! Of course the hotel I wanted had raised the rates $100 per night from when I had looked at it yesterday so that was a bust. I knew I could find something cheaper and comparable so I starting searching on my phone (because I couldn't be bothered to get out of bed yet), then it occurred to me I should use an app to do this on the phone. Seriously love, love, love the Kayak app and when using it for hotels it couldn't be easier, quicker or more intuitive than if I asked them to create it for me. I have yet to try it for flights, but for free this is the best app I have used to date! Finally found a decent priced mid-town hotel that doesn't look as if the sheets were 10 years old and can't wait to check it out. As much as I wanted to stay at a few higher priced (and lovely, large and gorgeous) other hotels, I wanted to save some money for a new pair of shoes that I have tried talking myself out of and can now buy because of all the dollar bills that I will save. How smart and economical I am!

Stay tuned on how the hotel, Stay. works out. It's totally in Times Square which is not where I usually would choose, but the price was right and shoes are important!
