Philosophy Holiday Collection 2009

The Christmas season is my absolute favorite time of year. Cosmetic lines get creative concocting the most delicious and irresistible smells that tell such a deep and sweet story! I am always impressed with Philosophy's presentation and this year is extra cute with its vintage, pale, soft and romantic colored illustrations of sweet childhood memories. The age when marshmallows, cocoa, peppermint and gingerbread makes a mark on the olfactory system for years to come!

My menu lately...

Rosehip tea. I love how tart it is, I put no sugar. I don't like sugar in my tea. Very high in Vitamin C!

That's Nutella!

Christmas lights!

I just love the Christmas season! I love the warm glow and magical effect Christmas lights have on homes, trees, buildings. My family's tradition is to drive around and see the brightly decorated homes our town and the trees in Union Square in SF, Oakland and San Jose. Very special times! My only wish is that it snowed here! :)

Peppermint & Plums

Just got Plumdrop! Light and fruity, love the pale milky pink mixture!

Soothing Lip Balm in Clear Shine is the best! [The one on the right.] Peppermint taste, cooling sensation, makes lips super soft, not too sticky, and even though it's clear, it has a slight white/blue tint, which I adore. Perfect for over lipsticks or by it self. I love it for overnight.
