Interior Inspiration: Organic Chaise

The simplest forms make lasting impressions on me. I can’t get this chaise lounge out of my mind. The organic shape and muted hue…sitting next to a mocha door. Perfection in every sense of the word. For more interior inspiration visit Oliver Gustav’s instagram where I came across this beauty.

Beauty Supply: Josh Rosebrook Moisturizing Cleanser

beauty-supply-josh-rosebrook-moisturizing-cleanser-clean-beauty-non-toxic-face-wash-desmitten

When I was at ABC Home chatting with Rose Marie Swift of RMS beauty, she noticed how dehydrated my skin was (ugh winter) and she recommended her favorite non-toxic face wash, Josh Rosebrook moisturizing cleanser. I should have started using it months ago because it has made a visible difference in my skin. With moisturizing ingredients including jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and almond oil, I was nervous that it would sit on top of my skin instead of deeply cleansing and moisturizing. This was not the case. The African black soap and willow bark gently exfoliates and detoxifies while slippery elm and calendula soothes redness and heals. Josh Rosebrook moisturizing cleanser is my new favorite. It doesn’t leave any residue on your skin and doesn’t leave it feeling stripped or tight. If you are in the market for a new gentle, but effective cleanser, this one is for you.

One to Watch: Ursa Major by Kate Jones

one-to-watch-ursa-major-by-kate-jones-jewelry-desmitten

I am always looking for modern, timeless jewelry to enhance my minimal wardrobe. Recently, I fell in love with the clean lines and organic shapes of Ursa Major. Designer, Kate Jones has an inherent ability to create wearable pieces for every day, while focusing on details and shapes that withstand the test of time. Personally, I love her version of hoop earrings, they are chunky and significant. The forms she creates remind me of Jean Arp’s sculptures. In this editorial, we get a true sense of the Ursa Major woman and how she interacts with her jewelry throughout the day.one-to-watch-ursa-major-by-kate-jones-jewelry-7-desmitten

As soon as the babouche slipper made an appearance on the toes of Céline models for Resort, we knew this would be the shoe of the year. I want them in every color, but for now, I put together a babouche slipper roundup of black (or mostly black) styles ranging in price from $28 – $790. See if you can tell the difference.

Beauty Supply: Boy Brow

beauty-supply-boy-brow-glossier-clean-beauty-products-desmittenIf you haven’t heard about Glossier yet (where have you been?!), let me fill you in. Glossier is a relatively new beauty brand focused on clean, affordable, no-fuss products that make getting ready that much easier. I am a huge fan of the Soothing Face Mist, Perfecting Skin Tint and now, Boy Brow. Eyebrows are having a major moment right now, which is good for us bushy-browed ladies. I’ve always loved a full brow, but finding the right product to tame them is most important. Boy Brow helps “fill in, thicken and groom them into place” – exactly what I needed! Other brow products I’ve tried turned out to be crunchy or flakey, which is not the case with Boy Brow. I don’t need help filling in the color of my brows, so I bought one shade lighter than my natural brow. This product also works great for the baby whispy hairs around your face. I use it to slick them back when I have my hair up in a polished pony.

If you are in New York, be sure to stop by the Glossier Penthouse this weekend or next to try out Boy Brow and the other new beauty products that just launched! 123 Lafayette Street (between Howard and Canal).
