Sugar-aholics don't just love the subtle and lingering aroma of a bakery door opening, the first tear in the wrapping of your favorite candy bar, or putting our fingers into the dough of mommas chocolate chip cookies. We live for those firsts, but my sweet tooth isn't only food related, it's food inspired beauty products as well. No brand does this quite as well as LaLicious.
Their bakery inspired products of body butters and oils leave our body feeling soft and supple but smelling like our favorite bakery ingredients of coconut, brown sugar and vanilla. One of their sugary cult favorite options (Sugar Kiss) has just launched a new body moisturizing mist called the LaLicious Sugar Kiss Everyday Everywhere Spray. Not just limited to the body, this light mist can be sprayed lightly over your pillow, sheets or any room to recreate the aromatic experience of mid summer nights and warm sunny days spent at the beach.
Infused with citrus, aromatic rose and subtle vanilla acts as a wake up call for your skin. The Sugar Kiss Everday Everwhere Spray is also filled with antioxidants like acai, ginseng and green tea to protect your skin cells from free radical damage. Enjoy this wonderful new product without the risk cavities and keep it in your purse for a refreshing spritz on-the-go.

We're thrilled to announce a new organic and eco-friendly line to the b-glowing family, ILIA Pure Lip Care! Specializing in products specifically designed for our smackeroos, each item is customized to make sure the lips are protected and moisturized at all times. The Ilia range consists of 6 products that each have a targeted mission: to illuminate, condition, exfoliate and give amazing contemporary color!
The ILIA Lipsticks come in six different shades that can be worn alone or layered to create your own signature lip color. The staff favorite is Neon Angel because its a bright fuchsia similar to Nars' Schiap and glides on so smoothly.
One of the most ingenious products in the range is the Lip Exfoliator. Typically I'd use a sugar scrub and manually exfoliate/rinse but this is in stick form making the process a lot less messy. Simply apply it on your lips like you would lipstick and tiny granules of volcanic stone powder gently exfoliates and soften. Follow up with ILIA's Lip Conditioner, an everyday balm filled with Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil that you'll want on your desk, by your bed and in your purse.
Although the range really looks after the lip area it does have some fabulous multi-purpose products like the ILIA Illuminator that can be worn on cupids bow, inner corners of eyes and upper cheekbones to radiate and bring out your best features. ILIA's Multi-Stick is the same thing but with more intensified color. Sweep across any area and you're out the door!
ILIA Pure Lip Color products contain 85% organic ingredients and their chic cases are made of recycled aluminum making it a brand you can trust, naturally.
The one style we constantly try to emulate but is difficult without a little seawater and sea breeze also happens to be one of Jennifer Aniston's signatures, beach hair. With the right styling products and tools, this vacation inspired hair trend isn't so complicated. One of Hollywood's leading hairstylists, Serge Normant, has broken the process down into five easy steps to achieve celebrity worthy beachiness…
Step 1. Pre air dry your hair in order to keep as much of your natural wave as possible.
Step 2. Apply Serge Normant's Spray Meta Lush Volumizer from root to tips to give flexibility and elasticity for the stye you're about to create.
Step 3. Create a middle part and smooth out the top layer to reduce unnecessary frizz.
Step 4. Use a little Serge Normant Meta Form Sculpting Pomade to give hair some texture before using a one inch curling iron or smaller to create your curls. Beachy curls aren't perfect so in order to have an 'undone' curl, I always recommend to leave the ends straight to give a more natural touch. In other words, don't wrap the entire strand around the barrel, but leave a 1-2 inch 'tail' hanging.
5. Flip your head over and scrunch up with your hands to loosen a little bit more. Then finally top it off with a little Serge Normant Meta Sheer Dry Oil Finishing Spray.
If you don't have a St Barth's or Miami trip planned anytime soon there's no need to worry, brush on your favorite bronzer and coral lipstick and rock your beach hair like a jetsetter!
