It's Spa Night!

Not only do I not want to spend on a facial, but I just don't have the time to fit regular facials into my schedule right now. One night a week my husband has his darts night with the boys, which has become my spa night at home! This week I will be starting on the Intensive Resurfacing Peel which is a series of 12 weekly treatments. Fortunately, Murad's home facial kits are just as effective as most spa treatments and easy to use.
Brightening and smoothing effects similar to a chemical peel are enhanced by gentle Bamboo Bead microdermabrasion. Debris and exhausted cells are swept away to reveal youthful-looking skin while Glycolic and Salicylic Acids stimulate cell proliferation. Skin looks younger and feels smoother after just one treatment.


Improves elasticity, firmness, and hydration while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to combat the signs of hormonal aging. Kit also includes firming and hydrating eye gel mask to lift and plump the delicate eye area while reducing the appearance of under eye damage. Use once weekly for four weeks.

Coming Soon To Lavish...Becca Cosmetics!

After six months of researching and testing countless make-up lines and listening to my customers needs, I have finally found one that I think will be perfect for my customers. Founded in Australia, Becca Cosmetics was launched in London in October 2001 after six years of research and development.
My main concern with finding the perfect cosmetic line was that I wanted make-up that women can easily wear during the day (with out looking too done up!) but also at night and for special occasions with full coverage. Becca is a high quality product that gives a natural yet flawless appearance. Stay tuned for quarterly Becca events at Lavish Boutique in Thomasville, Georgia.
Being from Australia, Becca is made for humidity. Perfect for us in the south.
Love how these girls are so natural looking. All the way from fair to darker complexion.

Love this Mascara! It actually conditions your lashes and is the "tube-it" kind. Whats great is at the end of the day you don't have raccoon circles. I DEFINITELY recommend this for brides on their wedding day!

Beach Tint for lips and cheeks. This product has won countless awards.

Weekend at the BEACH!

This beautiful weather makes me dream of the beach! Where I live in Florida we are only a few hours from some of the best beaches in the world...the Emerald Coast. For all of you who do not know, the Emerald Coast is the portion of the Florida panhandle between Pensacola and Port St. Joe.

Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco. This photo reminds me to protect my skin and that fair skin can be beautiful too!
I always love to dress up my swimwear with a little jewelry. You have to go with something simple and waterproof though, such as this Dogearred necklace.

Murad Waterproof Sunblock SPF 30.

This is probably the biggest seller in my store. A lot of times when your lips are chapped they are sunburn. This Jack Black Lip Balm with SPF 25 should always be in your beach bag.

What a fun beach towel! By Hermes of course! I'm not even going to look up the price to this one!

Weekend Get - Aways

I just love to travel. However, now that I am tied up with my business, my husband and I have resorted to last minute weekend get-aways. Ideally, I would be packed the night before, however the procrastinator in me chooses to last minute throw my stuff in a bag and hope that I haven't forgotten the essentials. Here are a few of my favorites to keep travel luxurious yet simple.

Love this Dogearred Tote. This is actually the bag that I last minute throw my laptop, magazines, waffle iron and candy into. When I get to the hotel I dump everything out and use it as my beach bag or shopping bag! So functional!!

Bon Voyage.. With my Solid Perfume of course!! Airplane safe and I don't have to worry about spillage!

This Crease Release by The Laundress also serves as a fabric freshener. I hate how when traveling even your clean clothes smell dingy. Problem solved! This is also the easiest way to get wrinkles out. Spritz your wrinkles and pat dry.I got my husband this Brics duffel for his birthday a few years ago and the more we use it the better it looks ( we actually have the brown croc leather). You wouldn't believe how much we can fit into this...
