Battle Of The: Hand Lotions

Summer or winter, we are always exposed to the elements and if you are the type who likes to live on the edge, I sure hope you wander out there protected. Whether it be the winter cracks or dehydration brought on by the summer sun, I’ve got your back. I’ve rounded up some of my current favorite hand lotions, get ready for a heavenly-scented-midday-pick-me-up.

Lavande Hand Cream. This is my all time favorite! Lets first begin with, L’Occitane you had me at the packaging! The aluminum tube with it’s robust screw on lid pleases my love for all things rustic. The soothing scent of lavender, lowers my shoulders and feels like a teeny tiny spa treatment. The formula is a mixture of cream and gel. It glides on smooth and instantly teleports you the French countryside.

Cherry Blossom Hand Cream. Another favorite by non other then L’Occitane. What can I say, I’m a sucker for the packaging! If you like a more floral scent, then this is the hand cream for you. Just like the one above, Cherry Blossom too glides on smooth and does not feel greasy because of its formula. A beautifully sweet scented hand cream, perfect for any purse.

Vaseline Intensive Care. This is a hand lotion without any fuss or gimmick. A products that actually delivers what it promises. If you want softer hands and stronger nails, give this lotion a try and I promise you will thank me in two weeks time.

What’s In My: Makeup Bag Edition

A small makeup bag in my purse is a must. You just never know where life might take you, whether it be a need for a quick touchup midday or perhaps a spontaneous date after work.  Wherever life takes me, I’ll be there fresh and ready for new adventures.

First things first, a touch of color, a smooth canvas and healthy lips. Look no further then Baby Lips by Maybelline, in the shade Rose Addict. I have one in the car, one in my purse, one on the nightstand and one in my office. #obsessed

L’oreal’s Paradise Extatic mascara is my go to drugstore mascara. Don’t let the “drugstore” part fool you, because this is as close to a holy grail mascara you are going to get for that price. It lengthens, separates and is a product you can build on. Whether you would like just a hint of volume or a dramatic look, this one miracle bottle got it all.

I always have at least two shades of lip color with me. This balm stain by Revlon in Honey Douce is as pretty as it is hydrating. Make-up Designory’s lip glaze in Bare is the perfect nude meets a hint of shine. Love!

For the all too familiar lunch-o-clock-shine, I reach for Make-up Designory’s Loose Powder in the shade Zero. This translucent miracle powder, has become a game changer for me. Bye bye shine! No more creasing, no caking and no shiny T zone.

When I’m out and about, I like to keep a hand sanitizer with me, for you know… I’ve tried a lot of great ones, but I always seem to come back to this one by L’Occitane. The soothing scent of lavender always gets me.

Hand sanitizers are great don’t get me wrong, but they do tend to dry my hands sometimes too. That’s when I like to moisturize with non other then L’Occitane’s Lavande Hand Cream. What can I say? I’m a sucker for french lavender.

Work Work Work

Creative writing requires a few steps to be taken, before an even flow of magic can overrun and be shared with likeminded creatures. A screenplay writer I once knew, used to have the metronome clicking as he was tapping away on the keys. Another writer I know he listens to heavy metal music, whenever he is writing. Each to their own!

For me, having a workspace that is functional and inspirational, is paramount. Achieving such a space however can be tricky, when you work from home. The constant interruptions alone is enough to make me wish I was in outer space, rather then in this space. You can’t give up on your passion though, so how do you make it work? “Be happy with what you have!” That’s what I always tell my girls. An organized and functional workspace goes a long way and helps me achieve peace of mind, everything else just comes natural.
