Patyka Mandarine Organic Bath Shower

In Marta’s Shower:

Patyka Mandarine Organic Bath Shower is occupying a good real estate in my bathroom these days. I’m a fan! It is a very delicate body wash which can also be used to wash hair, good for hubbies who like to keep it simple. The Mandarine scent is soft, fresh, and pleasant. Skin doesn’t feel stripped after use. Perfect for summer time, or anytime if you are into citrus scents. Want your friends to really love you:), you can even leave it by the sink before you invite guests so they can use it to wash their hands. Don’t be then annoyed by the frequent visit to your bathroom:)

Lisa Price Founder of Carol’s Daughter Interviews With Marta Walsh

I’ve been trying to interview Lisa Price the fabulous founder of Carol’s Daughter for quite some time now. And, finally, here it is!

I’m so excited to share with you Lisa’s story of  an incredible journey creating a sought after skincare and fragrance line: Carol’s Daughter.

In this interview Lisa Price talks to me about her fascination with fragrance. The Carol’s Daughter Philosophy. Why did she choose Jada Pinkett Smith and Mary J. Blige as the faces for her brand, and what’s new with Carol’s Daughter.

Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with skincare begin?
Lisa Price: It wasn’t so much a love for skincare as it was a love for fragrance which began when I was a little girl. I started creating my own scents and creams because I loved to experiment—it’s always been a hobby and passion of mine.

MW: At what point did your love for making your own skincare products in the kitchen turn into a promising business?
LP: After some time of working as a writing assistant for The Cosby Show, and creating personalized scents and products for the cast, my mom encouraged me to make a small batch to sell at a local church flea market. I nearly sold out on the first day!

MW: What is Carol’s Daughter philosophy?
LP: Every Carol’s Daughter product I create is made with love, and inspired by my own life. Each product is truly unique and created especially for my customers, who are part of the Carol’s Daughter family. The idea is not just about looking good, but feeling good inside and out, comforting your body and spirit. Carol’s Daughter is also about having a strong sense of family as well as love and respect for yourself and others.

Get The Look:Sunkissed Skin like Natasha Bedingfield & Kim Kardashian

Stars prove that you don’t have to be at Nikki Beach to flaunt a St. Tropez tan. Natasha Bedingfield and Kim Kardashian have both revealed how they remain fashionably tanned all year round. Thanks to St. Tropez Tan, Natasha and Kim are able to sport their healthy glows and beautifully sunkissed looks wherever and whenever they want! St. Tropez remains to be the world’s expert on safe and sunless tans, which leaves skin looking bronzed without any exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.

Since its introduction in 1996, St. Tropez has become the market leader in self tanning – a brand now synonymous with odorless self tan treatments attracting press acclaim and celebrity endorsement. Natasha Bedingfield loves St. Tropez so much that she included a St. Tropez custom spray tan as part of her recent pre-wedding beauty regimen.

Natasha says, “St. Tropez is the best self tanning product I have ever used. With my ‘English Rose’ complexion, it’s easy to sun damage, but let’s face it – everybody looks better with a little kiss from the sun! St. Tropez is a way that I can get that natural glow without aging or tan lines. It’s easy and quick. I love it!”
