Green Day Editor’s Pick: Korres Body Butter in White Grape From the Vinyards of Santorini

In days past, I haven’t been a huge fan of body butters. They have been thick, non-absorbent and greasy. Yuck. Of late, I have been able to hop on board the body butter bandwagon thanks to some fabulous brands like Korres.So let me tell you about how fabulous Korres body butters are. They are so fab you just want to dive into a vat full and slather yourself into a frenzy. That’s how good they are.

I’m rather picky about my jewelry—I prefer what might be categorized as “statement” pieces.  I’m a woman of substance–literally, and smallish jewelry “disappears”on me.  So I opt for major “bling” or funky fun rings, earrings and bracelets.

I was offered the opportunity to review and Cate & Chloe VIP Box and didn’t really know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. But, before I tell you about my beautiful jewelry that I received, let me tell you about the subscription service:

Cate & Chloe is a chic, classic yet fashion-forward, high-end jewelry line. All pieces are absolutely stunning and retail from $69 to $135.

Cate & Chloe has launched a VIP Membership program that will deliver members C&C’s newest and most popular pieces twice a month. One item each month will be an exclusive pre-release item that will only be available to members! The VIP membership will deliver $200 worth of exquisite jewelry for $40 a month. You can learn more about it here. What better way to stay ahead of the trend than with a VIP service that directly delivers unique, high-quality pieces?

My experience:

I love cute or luxe packaging, and that’s what I received with my Cate & Chloe box—a box complete with a bow always makes me happy. The contents were even better! A cute little box, also with a tie bow that housed a set of sparkly CZ stud earrings— Devin “Divine” Stud Earrings. 

 About the Devin “Divine” Stud Earrings:

Prepare to dazzle and stun in our Devin “Divine” Stud Earrings, CZ stones surrounded by an exquisite circle of smaller smaller CZ stones with a silver post. These earrings make a glittering addition to any collection.

I have had my share of CZ studs and I these rate pretty high. I love the addition of the circle that houses smaller CZ stones that surrounds the larger CZ Stone.

I have worn these earrings several times and gotten compliments on them, with most thinking they were the real deal. I have not used the subscription service, but if if has earrings like the ones I received, I’m definitely tempted. I’m sure I spend $40 a month on random miscellaneous stuff.

Price: $39.99

What I’m Loving Now: Limited Edition Mika For Shu Whitefficient Cleansing Oil

Cleansing is a necessary part of my daily skin care routine. Twice daily – I cleanse, treat and moisturize. It’s rare that I get all hyped over a cleanser. I mean rare…

Well, I had one of those rare moment just recently with Shu Uemura Mika for Shu  Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil.  Now, I have used some cleansing oils that I truly loved. But this Shu Uemura cleansing oil…
