DIY Sugar Lip Scrub

This week we’re turning to our friend and beauty expert Sarah Howard, of Beauty Banter, who is indulging us with her delectable brown sugar lip scrub tutorial. Inspired by one of her favorite lip polishes, Sarah recently discovered how simple it was to make her own organic version at home. The timing couldn’t be more ideal as winter’s typically unforgiving weather has us yearning for soft and smooth lips! (PS Be sure to head over to Beauty Banter for our favorite beauty products & tips!)

You’ll need:

  • pure coconut oil
  • honey
  • brown sugar
  • a teaspoon
  • a tablespoon
  • a mixing bowl
  • an empty jar or 2.5 oz baby food jar
  • labels (optional)


DSquared² Pre-Fall 2012

DSquared2’s pre-fall collection is all about combining preppy refinement with rebellious fun. The brilliant twin designers, Dean and Dan Caten, take us back to the swinging 60s where cropped cigarette pants, argyle cardigans, body hugging dresses, pencil skirts, tweed miniskirts, velvet tuxedo jackets, and incredible beehives were aplenty. I’m loving the masculine ensembles just as much as the polished ones and inspired to start cranking out bow ties!


Malibu Wearstler

Not your average beach house, Kelly Wearstler‘s Malibu getaway is the epitome of sophisticated glamour. The subdued color palette, myriad of textures, vintage furniture, organic sculptures, and textural details just go to show that not a single facet was overlooked by the über talented designer. I’ve officially added an enormous nautilus sculpture and a chic metal kaleidoscope to my dream-home wish list.


Coach x Hugo Guinness

Can Coach‘s most recent collaboration with British artist Hugo Guinness be any cooler? Known for his black and white linoleum cut prints, Hugo has translated a handful of his witty illustrations onto reversible leather totes, wallets, key chains and more. I just might have to hold up my boxing mitts and come out swinging for the ticking stripe billfold, zip pouch and playing cards.
