In honor of Shiseido’s 140th Anniversary, there’s been a lot of fancy cosmetic soirées here in Deutschland.
Breuninger Sindelfingen has a Shiseido spa that offers pampering that won’t break the bank, & now that they are in celebratory mode, the champagne flows like the cucumber water once did. Don’t mind if I do.
Speaking of being all celebratory, I’ll be home in just two weeks. As a means to keep my excitement at bay, I’m putting together lists of things I’ve missed from home, like Nola boutiques, food, internet shopping & my beloved product sample memberships.
I absolutely cannot wait to re-up my Birchbox , Julep, New Beauty Test Tube, & Beauty Bar Sample Society shipments. Also, I am slightly addicted to Etsy. A lot of the shops don’t ship overseas, so I’ve had to fill a cart for the past 6 months hoping stock is still available once I return. My new favorites:
In addition to supporting New Orleans boutiques & local artists – which we certainly hope you do, support the art of handmade, one of a kind jams on Etsy. And while we’re on this handcrafted artistry note, I recently announced via my art & design website that I would be collaborating with The Elizabeth Chronicles on a t-shirt collection debuting this Fall. Stay tuned — it’s gonna be on fire.
