Kate Somerville | ExfoliKate


I bought this on recommendation from my friend who loved it and used it once a week. I’ve used it for a while now and here’s what I think!

First off, as always, here are the claims…

What it is:
A dual-action exfoliation method that seemingly smooths away years in as little as two minutes. 

What it is formulated to do:

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment is Kate’s top-selling product, and the next best thing to seeing Kate in the clinic. This signature, expert formula works both physically and enzymatically to deliver safe, dramatic results in one application—and in the comfort of your own home. It effectively combats acne and blackheads, reduces discoloration, and polishes skin for a smooth complexion. Ideal for all skin types except sensitive skin, it harnesses the power of fruit enzymes to clarify skin by removing dead cells and eliminating bacteria. Skin will appear healthy, youthful, and vibrant. 

What I Think:

This stuff is AMAZING! It is crazy expensive but, to me, it’s worth it. A teeny tiny bit goes a LOOONG way. I have the 0.5 ounce tube and it’s lasted way longer than I expected! 

This is the first scrub I’ve used that I can feel working. Regular scrubs feel good and your face feels clean on the surface but this leaves your skin feeling clean deep down in your pores! Your face feels so incredibly smooth and ready to suck up whatever serum or moisturizer you’re about to put on it. I don’t think I can even truly convey how much I love this stuff! Try it, you won’t regret it!

Ps. I have crazy sensitive skin and I can use this once a week with no irritation whatsoever.

Favorite Winter Fragrances


It gets so hot here in NOLA that I save a few fragrance favorites for the winter just because to me– they seem too heavy with the hot, humid, summer air. These are some of my all time favorites that I use every winter. (I am not great at describing scents so I’ll leave that to Sephora)


Balenciaga – Balenciaga Paris

As the scent opens, an airy bouquet of violets is set against the antique charm of dried petals found between the pages of a book. Traces of past memories turn to the present as a peppery note swells over a calm trace of mossy wood. A scent that breathes in the secret hours of night, it is mysterious and fragile—yet leaves a lasting trail.

Violet Leaf, Pepper, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Vetiver.
Light. Mysterious. Antique.

I absolutely love this perfume. A little goes a long way and it lasts all day. The first time I ever sprayed this perfume on me I was shopping in Sephora. I sprayed one spray and didn’t think much of it– but as I was shopping around the mall, I kept getting whiffs of it and by the time I left the mall I was sold!


Jimmy Choo – Jimmy Choo

Luminous green top notes join a heart of rich and exotic tiger orchid and lingering base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli to leave a sensual memory on the skin.

Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee, Sensual Indonesian Patchouli.
Feminine. Luxurious. Stylish.

This perfume smells so warm and cozy to me, that’s why I love wearing it in the fall/winter. I just love wearing this with a big, cozy, chunky sweater!


Chanel – Chance

A decidedly young scent for those who dare to dream. A light, subtly sensual fragrance, filled with vitality and energy, evolves from one moment to the next, each wholly unique. – (The Sephora website doesn’t list the notes for this one.)

This is a light scent but a little strong for during hot summer days. I do love this perfume for a night out though. This is definitely a “getting dressed up” perfume for me and the perfect complement to a fancy dress.

Something to definitely keep in mind is that each perfume will smell different on everyone. When I first sprayed the Balenciaga Paris perfume, I wasn’t impressed but as it meshed with my body chemistry I loved it more and more. Definitely go to the mall or your nearest department store and try them out on yourself before you invest.

Dry Winter Hands Remedy


This time of year, if I’m not religiously moisturizing my hands, the winter can get the best of them. I try my best to moisturize every time I wash them but let’s be honest, it doesn’t always happen, and before you know it, your hands are dry and scaly. These are just a couple simple things you can do to get your hands back from the throws of winter skin.


First off, you need to exfoliate. I know this sounds like the last thing you would want to do to your poor, dry, irritated hands but trust me, you need to. If you don’t get that top layer of dry skin off, no matter how much moisturizer you put on top, it WILL NOT sink in. Now, you definitely don’t want to scrub harshly. Just lightly scrub your hands, rinse with lukewarm water, and pat them dry to prep them for the next step. A couple of my favorite hand/body scrubs are JR Watkins, Giovanni or even just some coconut oil and epsom salts mixed together would do the trick.


– You want to pick a gentle lotion and apply it generously. Because you exfoliated off the top layer of skin, it will sink in beautifully. I would probably even do two layers of lotion. Some of my favorites are Nature’s Gate, Crabtree & Evelyn, Aveda, and Nourish Organic.

– Finally, I like to apply a cuticle cream/oil to my nails and cuticles to lock in the moisture even more. I love Crabtree & Evelyn and Burt’s Bees.

Products Mentioned.

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Nourish Organic Body Lotion Lavender Mint — 8 fl oz

J.R. Watkins Sugar and Shea Body Scrub, Lemon Cream, 8 Ounce

Aveda Replenishing Body Lotion

Crabtree & Evelyn Nail and Cuticle Cream

Giovanni D;tox System Purifying Body Scrub, (step 2), 6-Ounces (Pack of 2)

Julep Nail Polish – Rochelle

IMG_1466I love painting my nails. It’s one of my favorite ways to relax and unwind. It’s also the main reason I don’t love gel nail polish as much as everyone else, it lasts too long. I like to switch my nail color out once a week and a weekly trip to the nail salon is not in my budget.

I’m a big fan of Julep polishes but especially this one. I got this color in one of my Julep Maven Boxes and just tried it out this weekend.  I absolutely LOVE it! It’s a magenta/purple/iridescent shade that is so gorgeous when the light hits it.

If you’re interested in checking out Julep nail polishes, their monthly Maven box is a really great deal. Click the link for more information!
