#RANBonusBox New Fashion and Beauty Products

On instagram I posted that the Q4 bonus box had arrived! Here is what was inside.

DL 1961  I am so excited that a denim company is participating in this box! Good jeans are hard to find, and DL has something they call smart denim.

DL1961 is a New York City based company that specializes in high performance and technologically advanced denim. Our denim is engineered to be a utility. With 98% shape retention, 360 degree movement and a wide variety of washes, fabrics & weights, our collection provides customers with denim that outperforms everything in their closet.

Technical fabrics are so exciting to me! If you can learn about how your clothes are made and with what, you can get so much more out of your closet.

I love the Fiji Friendship Bracelet! It is small and adjustable chic and a little bit edgy. I actually bought one for myself last year. MV is truly a line that you can gift to anyone. All of the styles are so versatile and you can wear them everyday.

FullSizeRenderForeo Luna Mini

The LUNA™ mini’s cleansing brush is made of rounded silicone touch-points that glide across the face, making it gentle enough for daily use and delivering nonabrasive, extra-gentle cleansing that feels amazing on the skin. Thanks to the 8,000 T-Sonic™ (transdermal sonic) pulsations the LUNA™ mini channels every minute, its silicone cleansing brush can deliver effective cleansing that remains gentle on the skin.

I already tried this! The rumor is that your skin will look better in 3 days. I have only used it once and I did like the squeaky clean feeling without the roughness from bristle brushes.

Tb Dress is new to me. They seem to carry fast fashion at an affordable price. The earrings are a nice weight, not to heavy or to light. I think they will look great for some upcoming holiday parties!


Time to Spa Elemis samples

Time to Spa offers everything you need to look and feel your best each and everyday!

I am most excited to try the Elemis Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm. The description says that it instantly brightens the complexion and exudes health and vitality. Who doesn’t need that, right?



A Girls Guide to Grooming a Beautiful Beard

How to take care of your beard!

1. Beard wash. A gentle, silicone free cleanser will remove dust, debris, and cleanse your face underneath. Thorough washing will also help to relieve itchiness and beard flakes.

2. Beard Softener. Similar to hair conditioner, it is designed to condition and support a soft supple beard.

3. Beard Comb/Brush. After you have properly and thoroughly cleansed your beard, you will need to detangle and comb it out. Just ’cause you get a little out of control every now and then doesn’t mean your beard should do the same. Use a wide tooth comb at first, moving to a more fine tooth after the tangles are out. Beard oil may help in this step to get out any unruly tangles.

4. Beard Oil. This step is best when your beard is still damp from a shower. Oil can be applied when dry also. Start from the top, closest to your face and gently massage in dime sized amounts until you reach the end. Continue to comb the oil through to ensure your beard is evenly coated yet not greasy. The benefits of a beard oil that is made of high quality essential oils is it aids with mood and takes you to the wild. When smelling the Timberline Trail, you become transported to the Pacific Northwest with the lingering scent of sub alpine fir, spruce and pine, spring water, charred firewood, late-summer wild berries and glacial silt! If that’s not your thing you can pay homage to your ‘Four Vices’. It’s scent is earthy and subtle, blending together the notes of coffee, tobacco, cannabis and hops.

If you can not grow a beard, instantly update your manly look in a playful way with this trim-fitting crewneck T-shirt.

The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book 2015 has Arrived!

Neiman Marcus is known for the ultimate in luxury gift giving. This year notably there is a fantasy gift experience that is a first production Arch Motorcycle Company KRGT-1 motorcycle that is designed to be ridden. The company was created by Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger and the fantasy includes a two day California coastal ride with Reeves and Hollinger for you and a guest.

NMO5643_mxAnother less fantasy, Shinola Detroit, American luxury through American quality. I had no idea Shinola Detriot was sold at Neiman Marcus. Which pulled at my heart strings because we operate from Michigan very near Detroit as well.  Midwest fashion and forward.
