Lara’s Latest Skincare Obsessions

Woowzer! There are some great new skincare products on the market. I’m constantly amazed by all of the new technology and natural resources brands are discovering (and testing!) to keep our skin looking vibrant and youthful. Here’s what I’m currently obsessing over!

Peel it on, then use the pen to write out your to do list. Perfect gag gift (or practical gift in my case) for all your disorganized, flaky or plain forgetful friends. Each pack comes with 12 ‘to do…’ tattoos, perfectly sized to fit in the palm of your hand, although I generally stick them on my arm. For more information visit worldwidefred.com

2. Risk It/Play it Safe Coin ($4)– It’s genius! A silver, rustic looking coin that on one side has ‘RISK IT’ imprinted on it and on the other ‘PLAY IT SAFE’. For all those moments in question, now you can just flip a coin and leave it to fate. This is somewhat an iconic gift I give to the very special men in my life –who may or may not happen to make reckless or irresponsible decisions, and need a little voice of reason.  I like to
