Noodle & Boo

noodle-and-boo-gift-baby-starter

My friends just introduced me to Noodle & Boo this weekend and I used some of their skin care products for the first time yesterday. So so so wonderful!!  My friend Lee Ann told me I would be hooked and boy she was right. What makes me extra happy about Noodle & Boo is that the company behind the product is just as cool and fabulous as the products themselves. First of all, Noodle & Boo was started by a mom, and I love to support other mom owned business. And then I learned that she donates the majority of the profits of the company to children’s charities. You can feel great about every purchase.

The Noodle & Boo line consists of personal skin care products for newborns, babies, children and pregnant women – everything is safe and gentle for sensitive skin. You can purchase the products online or at your local Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstom and other fine retailers. The packaging is so cute that I think the products make a wonderful baby shower gift too.

The Spa Los Gatos

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

My Silicon Valley spa tour continues…..For many many years now the spa I most regularly go to has been The Spa Los Gatos. I have tried a number of different services and have always been very happy. I had prenatal massages while I was pregnant which were wonderful, and Veronica is fabulous for facials. It is the perfect neighborhood spa – not over the top – just super mellow and relaxing. After you slip into your big terry robe you can meander over to their library where you can enjoy tea, juice and nuts (if you arrive after I have been there all of the cashews and little chocolates will be missing from the mix) while you read a magazine or just close your eyes and relax. They also have a cute little shop that is full of tempting little spa treasures – from bumble and bumble hair products to lemon drop lotion. Grab a girlfriend or two and enjoy a great afternoon. Insider tip…Cold Stone Creamery is just a block away so you can get a little treat afterwards too….

Hair Tips from Ian

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Ian is my go to hair stylist when I am in Los Angeles. He is one of the few people who can convince me to take my hair out of my mainstay ponytail. Cut or color – he is your guy. He has been kind enough to share some tips with everyone. I told him that moms don’t have a lot of time for primping so we needed something quick and easy. His solution: A blowout in five minutes.

Here goes: Roll up all your hair in four or five big rollers. (You can let your kids stick one or two in their hair too so they don’t get jealous), apply heat for just a bit, run around and get everyone ready for school or summer camp, remove the rollers when your hair cools and gently brush through. You will be the cutest mom in car line.

If you are ready for a new summer ‘do – get an appointment with Ian Martin at Joseph Martin Hair & Beauty on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
