DIY Spa Night.

Every Sunday night I retreat to my bathroom for an hour. I gather a few key products, lock the door, turn on soothing music and escape. It is my own Sunday, DIY spa night.

I can't afford weekly spa treatments, so I have learned that by shopping smart for products that work, I can recreate that spa experience at home, by myself. From deep conditioners to foot scrubs, I do it all.

My favorite treatments have got to be my mini facials. I always starts with a steam and I love a facial sauna. It really starts my spa night off right and opens up my pores for the rest of my routine. I then use Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. A mini-facial alone, I use this to remove dead, dull skin. Next, I use a mask on my face. I have a few that I depend on and select it depending on my skins needs that week. The rest of my routine includes a long relaxing soak in the tub. When soaking, I apply a deep conditioner on my hair, a body scrub, and I never forget my feet. My new favorite beauty tool is the Clarisonic Pedi Sonic. My feet haven't been in as good of shape since I started using. My DIY spa night is one of my favorite times of the week.

I found super deals for some of my favorite spa products right on eBay and even created a DIY Spa Collection that features some of my faves. It also features a few little luxuries that I can only dream about! Follow me on eBay and see all of my eBay collections. Share a few of yours too with #FollowItFindIt and you could win $25,000 to shop. Learn more here.

Great Gifts: Too Faced All I Want For Christmas.

For their holiday collection, Too Faced partnered with award-winning designer, and one of my reality TV faves, Mary McDonald. Mary is from Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Decorators” and she decorates with a style that fuses old world elegance with modern sensibility. With Too Faced's glamour and Mary's style, the “Joy to the Girls” holiday collection was created.

One of my favorites from the collection is this set called All I Want For Christmas. This is a makeup set of Too Faced makeup to create your very own holiday look or everyday look. I think it is perfect for traveling as it has everything you need for an easy makeup look. It's also easy to give because the shades are universal and it's got the lips, face and eyes covered. Plus it comes housed in a stylish teal and gold chevron cosmetics bag.

A Trio of Treats from H2O Plus.

The weather has been crazy. One day I am in shorts (in November!) and the next I am dressed in layers and cannot seem to get warm enough. My skin is paying the price. I have been reaching into the beauty closet looking for some great body care products to treat myself. Last night I pulled out three products from the H2O Plus Spa line and I was so thrilled with how soft and smooth my skin was that I just had to share this with you right away.

The trio of treats I used all have a common ingredient, Sea Lotus, and it was like I was transformed to the spa with this sea sourced water lotus. It was so soothing yet refreshing at the same time. Take a look at what I used.

H2O+ Sea Lotus Skin Smoother, Body Wash & Body Lotion

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Wash - $17.00
This exhilarating body wash renews the skin and deeply nourishes it with essential vitamins and minerals.  The Sea sourced water lotus and bamboo extract provide long term moisture so my skin not only immediately feels soft and smooth, but it feels that way for hours after too.

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Skin Smoother - $20.00
This luxurious, exfoliating scrub is my favorite new treat. It immediately restored my natural glow and made my skin super soft. The sea salt provides gentle, yet effective exfoliation all areas of skin. Sweet almond and macadamia nut oils are quickly absorbed by my skin to provide extra nourishment and makes my skin even softer than what I would imagine.

H2O Plus Spa Sea Lotus Body Lotion - $21.00
This moisture rich lotion deeply hydrates and softens my skin like a rich cream would, but does it while feeling extremely light. The hydrating Marine Blend combined with red algae, Vitamin E and Provitamin B5 sooth and revitalize my skin even further. It also contains rich and luxurious mango and cocoa butters, which are rapidly absorbed to instantly smooth and protect my skin, leaving it soft and radiant.
