Never Shower Again with this DIY Salt Scrub

Honestly the California drought has never looked so good on my skin- I cannot thank Los Angeles skincare guru Lili Lolla (of Lol-la Your Skin Looks Great fame) enough for her amazing recipe that she was kind enough to share with the Des Geulasse team. It’s literally the best excuse not to shower! It’s so wonderful to feel clean without the waste of water- and it’s SO easy if you’re trying to get out of the house fast and don’t…

The Art of Skinstugi

I was first introduced to the traditional Japanese art of Kintsugi by a dear friend and fellow fashionista, Miyu Topa Topa. One day, as we were both sitting outside drinking white wine spritzers and watching the sun set, Miyu said the most beautiful and profound thing I have ever heard… it went a little something like this: I see so many imperfections in the world, you know? You see this sunset, Phyllis? It is not perfect. You see this glass…

Ice Cube Love Letters

I am always desperately searching for new ways to show A I care- and one of my favorite ways is to leave him little notes in creative ways. I love the look on his face when he discovers them (he always acts so embarrassed, it’s adorable!) and I really love knowing I’ve given him a little piece of my literary soul in a physical form. I recently tried a little something that I think ALL OF YOU need to do…

DIY Art Deco Ice Cubes

With the summer season literally around the corner, I think most of us are ready to break out those ice cold drinks in tall glasses while we lounge by the poolside. I mean honestly, is there anything better than sipping a margarita on the rocks while soaking up the sun?? Personally I like to take my drinks game to the next level by focusing on the details. A mini umbrella, cute straw or even slices of fruit are so easy to…

How to Tell How He Really Feels

A is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I wake up every day feeling 100% blessed to be living this life with him. Some days, when he’s napping and I get to hold his hand, I can’t help but think that I honestly might be on a cloud in a dreamworld. Don’t get me wrong, not everything is perfect all the time. In fact, let me give you all a little advice about relationships- they take work.…

Color me Sweet: DIY Edible Nail Art

My sister, Primrose, and I are OBSESSED with painting our nails. I don’t know if it’s the addicting fumes or just how elegant our hands look, but we get together at least four times a week to have a mani/pedi sesh. The best part is Prim is an absolute master at nail art. I timed her once and she was able to accurately recreate the Birth of Venus on my thumb in two minutes and with only three colors. Of course…
