Arielle Shoshana is a niche perfume boutique in the DC Metro area. I haven’t been there but I’ve only heard wonderful things about it. I keep saying that the next time I’m in Baltimore, I’ll stop on by D.C., but I haven’t yet. But, most importantly, Arielle Shoshana is a person. I know Arielle, and maybe you know Arielle too, through her blog, Scents of Self. I love her witty writing and sense of humor. She’s really passionate about fragrance. So, when she opened up her own boutique… Continue reading

I posted my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face. I wear sunscreen every day. Saying that, I don’t wear sunscreen on my body daily because most of the year, my body is not exposed. I mostly wear sunscreens for the body in the summer or if I travel to a warmer climate. I do try to wear sunscreen on my hands every day. So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.
