Alright, so another shopping day – this time via my wonderful little laptop from the comfort of my bed 😉 – could shopping be any better?!? I have recently discovered Mario Badescu skincare… and have since been wondering how I have survived thus far without it…

I am a fiercely loyal Erno Laszlo enthusiast, however after filling out the online skin analysis on, I was offered to try some of their samples. Since I am up here in the great white north, it took a bit longer to get here than promised. Never the less I received them about a week ago today and have trying to make them last as long as possible ;). They sent me a beautiful little kit with a seaweed face wash, kiwi face scrub, flower and tonic face mask, aloe eye cream and toner and an spf face moisturizer that my skin has been enjoying very, very much! I figure since the two lines are made up of mostly natural ingredients that I can switch around some of my routine to add some good old fashioned fun ;). So, I ordered the flower and tonic mask (has an absolutely amazing smell, and my face glowed after the treatment), the brands infamous drying lotion (supposed to be able to zap pimples overnight), and the amazing spf facial cream! A great plus is this lines affordability – the line ranges from $6 – $40! Erno is quite a bit pricier, and my full order at Mario cost the same as one product from Erno…. hmmmmm…. who knew cutting costs could be so fun?

Ladies, ladies, ladies… I don’t know if you’ve already heard about this, but let me tell you – it is music to my unknowing ears!!! Last year for Valentine’s Day, Godiva Chocolatier played Willy Wonka and hid a secret invitation in one of it’s special edition Valentines Day truffles assortments!
The company re-created a suite at the famous Bryant Park Hotel in New York City for a sinful getaway for two. Everything from the table, chandeliers, books (which opened up to truffles), as well as paintings (a chocolate rendition of Gustav Klimts “The Kiss”) were made entirely of chocolate. Mmmmmmm…. Can you say “overdose”?!?

Lucky Ali Larter got to experience it firsthand to promote it as their spokesperson… lucky girl!

Pretty irresistible stuff, huh Ali? 😉
