Rub-a-dub-dub, Organic in the tub!

WARNING: Never leave me alone in your bathroom, because I possess an uncontrollable knack for snoopin’, samplin’ and (gasp) stealin’ whatever I can get my hands on. Smell-good soaps? Need ‘em! Luscious lotions? Want ‘em! Prized perfumes? Gimme gimme! I am the toiletries thief, the bathroom bandit, the products pilferer.
Okay, so maybe I’m only doing the five-finger discount with my mom and sis, but there is definitely something about slathering on someone else’s stuff that just feels so nice.
This vice of mine led me to a wonderful discovery in my sister’s bathroom a few weeks ago- Wholearth by Danny Seo, a line of organic, eco-friendly bath and beauty products that’s proving green really is the new black. The moment I used Wholearth’s bodywash, I knew I wasn’t dealing with any ordinary soap. Its citrus scent was so fresh and clean, I had to make sure I wasn’t sudsin’ with a California grapefruit. My skin was left baby’s bottom soft, despite some serious in-shower lathering.
From the scrub to the room mist, Wholearth products are all natural, certified organic and never tested on cuddly creatures. And with an Earth Day birthday, Danny Seo was fated to create such an eco-friendly product. So, eco-chicsters, why not layer your green and add a little Wholearth to your current tarte regime?

Popchips!

Some of my addictions, vices, whatever you might call them: my morning caffeine, sour candy and reality TV melodramas. I’m now adding a new one to that list—POPCHIPS!! I’ve never been a huge chip eater, but these are all-natural, never fried and never baked! The best part: they taste delish! At 100 calories a pop (pun intended) it’s total guilt free snacking. They’re available in original, barbeque, sea salt & vinegar and salt & pepper—I’m partial to the BBQ I just can’t get enough!

Brunch Date!

What every neighborhood needs and every New Yorker wants is a chill, go-to Sunday brunch spot. So this weekend I suggest you extend your Saturday dinner-date with your Vday crush (or your favorite single girlfriends) to Sunday morning brunch at Jane in the West Village. This American bistro is the perfect downtown spot for two (or more). The vanilla bean French toast is to die for. Ohh and this comes with an alcoholic beverage of your choice (good morning mimosas)! Unlike many NYC brunch spots they do accept reservations. Being as chic as Jane is you can expect a crowd so be sure to go to opentable.com before you attempt a walk-in! And this is no plain Jane, the ingredients that make their hearty dishes so amazing are sought out to be local, natural, organic & sustainable. Enjoy!
