So says Celine.

You had 'em on your tees in the 80s. Why not a shiny glam gold version for your hair in the teens?

Expanding Across Platforms

Obviously I haven't been posting as much here lately and I wanted to let you all know what was up. I've been playing with formats and this blog lends itself more to articles and in-depth explorations. Yet, I've been posting a lot of just pictures. So, the pics only posts from here on out will be on the tumblr: http://smartaesthetic.tumblr.com/
It just seems to be a better format for images that don't require much commentary. Come check out the new digs for image inspiration. This page will continue to feature wordier content and articles.

Sugar Scrubs: A Winter Treat

Look,winter is hell in so many ways, but none more so than on your skin. And when it's dreary and dull outside and you skin is looking the same, sugar scrubs to the rescue! A work friend gifted me this for Christmas and it is delicious!


The pinteresting world is full of recipes in all manner of flavors. This'n includes cane sugar (duh), but seriously, refined sugar isn't gonna cut it. The point is to do some exfoliating so those big granules are key. Epsom salts, grape seed oil, almond oil, rosemary and dried mint. All those nice oils leave your skin buttery soft, supple and hydrated. And the smell is heaven. It's really great for exfoliating lips too!
