Last weekend, L’Occitane hosted a beautiful southern France inspired brunch here in LA. If you remember, I posted about the L’Occitruck arriving in LA, well this was their kick off brunch with LA influencers like myself. While I wasn’t able to attend personally since just giving birth to Levi, I sent Liz who captured the event here for you to see!

The smell of lavender was in the air, samples of tried of true customer favorites like Shea Butter Lotion was out to sample, and every color of macaroon available for your delight. It was indeed a lovely spread fit with a blue and yellow flower wall to kick it off. How enchanting!

Lavender Lemonade Mimosa from Food and Wine
Fill a pitcher two-thirds full with ice. Add the lemon juice and Lavender Tea Syrup. Stir briskly for 30 seconds to chill, then strain into 8 chilled flutes. Top each drink with 4 ounces of Prosecco. Garnish with sprigs of lavender.


Below, shop some of my favorites!

1. Reset Oil-in-Serum (I use this at night and yes it makes crows feet appear less visable. Try for yourself!) //2. Immortelle Divine Cream // 3. Immortelle Divine Eyes (the skin under our eyes is the thinnest, so to avoid wrinkles I apply this stuff!) 4. Immortelle Divine Youth Oil (I used this day and night until Reset Oil was introduced. Now, I use youth oil in the AM, and Reset in the PM. It makes my skin feel amazing!) 5. Immortelle Oil Make-up Remover (just that, I use it to remove my makeup!) 6. Immortelle Precious Mist LA is SO dry, so I like to spray this as much as I can after my cleansing routine and as a make-up setting spray.

Early Saturday morning Reid and I and headed to The Grove to see the L’Occitane truck. Did you hear about it? It was soo adorable. It was this real vintage truck painted yellow. Nick from L’Occitane was there to share that this truck is a nod to their early beginnings when Olivier Baussan, a soap maker who in 1976 used a truck to sell his freshly milled soaps in the south of France.

What did the truck hold you ask? It was stuffed with their customer favorites as well as Christmas preview stocking stuffers! I picked up some of those very charming stocking stuffers for my mom and spritzed myself off during the heat of the LA sun.

I loved seeing some of my faves like the shea butter tin. I use it to lather primarily on dry spots and my belly to avoid stretch marks. I also spotted another one of my
favorites—the Reset Oil-in-Serum! One of the things L’Occitane does well is to not discontinue great products. It’s my pet peeve when companies end a good product.

I love that this charming truck is a nod to the company’s humble beginnings. It shared the basics that would change the way we wash our face and moisturize our bodies, the French way. Do yourself a favor if you’re in LA, and do not miss this charming truck and pick up a gift from Provence for your friends and yourself. 🙂 It’s there till the end of October.

I’ve tried to make skincare a big focus in my life for a while now, but the older I get (and the more my kids stress me out), the more emphasis I put on having a consistent routine. I’ve been using L’Occitane products for forever because they’re like magic in a bottle, so when they released RESET, I knew I had to give it a go. It has been amazing!
Between the kids, work and trying to squeeze in quality time with the hubs, sometimes I think I only have a skincare routine because it’s a few minutes of the day that truly belong to me. It gives me a moment of very much needed self-care. Plus adding an overnight treatment like RESET to my routine renews my skin and gets me ready for my hectic and busy day ahead. Now if only RESET could babysit the kids. 😉 
In all seriousness though, life is busy, but don’t forget to take some time for yourself. With stress, sun, pollution and fatigue, the first place it’ll all show up is your face, trust me. So if you’re looking for something new to try or are just looking for a little “you time”, I highly recommend L’Occitane RESET.

Recently the hubby and I took to the skies for a quick trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico. It was a glorious four days of beautiful weather, a gorgeous hotel, and flat-out relaxing. As it truly was a romantic vacation (seriously, just google the place), I brought along some super fun outfits, but also a new scent. New scents always make everything feel different right? So for that date night glow, I tried Terre de Lumière, the newest scent from L’Occitane made with Bergamot, Ambrette seed, and subtle floral notes.  I’d definitely say it is a more sophisticated scent, rather than flirty or floral. I’m picky when it comes to fragrances; they can’t have too much floral and must have a healthy dose of musk. Well, this fit the bill. Honestly, I’ve always been a fan of L’Occitane. Throughout high school, I always used their shea butter hand creme after my dad and I would work in the garden and that scent always brings back so many good memories. So when L’Occitane asked me to try their newest scent, I gladly obliged. Try it for yourself. It’s the perfect blend of sophistication and casual date night. For me, it is now the smell of romance, the beach in Riviera Maya, and beautiful vacation memories. It really was the perfect addition to a perfect break.
