Your May Horoscope: Week II

I try to make all weekly decisions based off these star charts- I hope you all do the same!  Aries: If you haven’t tried it recently, quit your job. You’ll be amazed at how different life becomes when you don’t have a steady income.  Taurus: Enjoy a hot cup of coffee at least once this week. The warm, soothing flavors will make it easier to get over the guilt you’re feeling after you betrayed your best friend. Gemini: Don’t buy…

Des Geulasse is so excited to be introducing a new author to the team: Darina Mamelon.

Your January Horoscope: Week II

Like my boyfriend A, the stars are distant, enigmatic creatures of darkness that appear only at night and never invite me over to their own homes. Unlike my boyfriend A, there are thousands of stars in the universe… there is no one quite like my A 😉 Aries: Buttons fall off, but can always be sewn back on again. All you need is a needle, thread, and a some super glue.  Taurus: Imagine a world where all the humans are…

New Year, New You

Happy New Year from all of us at Des Geulasse! My sister, Primrose, and I had such an amazing time on NYE doing shots of rubbing alcohol and sharing our many wonderful resolutions (my #1 for the year is to get A to finally put a ring this little finger of mine… hint hint 😉 ). We let the entire Des Geulasse staff take off for the month so my basement definitely got a little lonely- BUT I think everyone’s really…

Impress Your Friends with this Easy Marilyn Monroe Halloween Costume

Growing up in the Geulasse household, my sister and I were often told by our mother that Marilyn Monroe was a starlet hussy who would burn in the fiery pits of hell because she was too beautiful. Then our mother would turn to us and say, “You both are so lucky you weren’t blessed with looks. You will live long lives. But you’ll still burn in hell.” And then she would leave the house for a week or two. Hah,…

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…
