Aveda is one of those brands that sort of drifted off my radar screen for a while. Years ago, a former co-worker got me hooked on one of their lipglosses, but when I finished the tube, I never got around to picking up another (me = short makeup attention span).

Well, the brand is back on my heads-up display with their new Sea Blossoms collection for spring/summer 2012.

Characterized by soft seaside colors like pastel pink, coral, violet, blue, green and gray, the limited edition seven-piece release for eyes, lips and cheeks speaks to that part of me that lives for the beach! — and loves makeup in soft beachy colors. :)

Mellow Out With Aveda Stress-Fix

Published in: Aveda, Product Reviews, Skin Care

Aveda Stress-Fix

I spend a large portion of my days trying to relieve stress…

No, seriously. A lot of people don’t understand the high stakes nature of pet assisting for a world-renowned international kitty supermodel. Most days, I’m chained to my desk for 12-14 hours.

No, really. I’m chained to my desk. I have to ask permission to use the restroom, and when I go, Tabs follows me in (cats are such pervs!).

So, yeah. Girlfriend is stressed out…

I know it’s not healthy, but I’ve been trying to turn things around lately. I exercise now about an hour a day (those endorphins really help) and try to make it to yoga in the evenings when I can.

But is it enough? I really don’t know. Just the other day, I was plucking my eyebrows and found another white hair, and I keep finding new ones on my head, and in places where they never used to show up.

I can’t say I’m surprised, as a lot of people in my family started going gray at a young age, but I can’t help but wonder if in my case the long hours have had anything to do with it…

I know, I know. Hard work is a part of life, but so is the need to relax.

Cue yet another excuse to work a new beauty angle into my life (the sign of a true addict)! :)

The hunt is on for new stress-relieving products, and this week I’m taking a look at three new ones from Aveda’s Stress-Fix line.

Their new Soaking Salts ($40), Body Lotion ($28) and Concentrate ($22; it’s in a cute rollerball!) just launched at Aveda stores and salons, and they’re scented with lavender and sage, which Aveda says are clinically proven to help relieve feelings of stress.
