They look to the Mediterranean for the incredible skin loving benefits of sea salt. We created this Spanish Riviera Sea Salt Body Scrub that uses sea salt to loosen and exfoliate skin cells while Sunflower Seed Oil, rich in Vitamins E, A, C and D hydrates and protects leaving your skin smooth and glowing.
SAFFRON SECRET Saffron Hair Oil: Style & Shine For Saffron-Sleek Hair
I was lucky enough to find this brand new product coming from the saffron fields of Spain. Style your hair with the first-ever hair oil to be loaded with 100% organically grown Spanish saffron. Called the king of spices, saffron nourishes hair with concentrated Vitamin B2, a key activator of Vitamin B6 and niacin, which are key to hair health. It’s the key active ingredient in this light, multitasking styling miracle, which does the job of your leave-in conditioner, styling cream, serum and shine spray, all in in one, leaving your hair sleek, smooth, shiny and styled to perfection.
When I’m traveling I love getting inspired by the aromas, the textures, the colors of a new city. Barcelona is full of them! As I wandered the streets I found a few things that captured some of that, short of bottling up the sand and the salt air.
Hand-made and Hand-painted Spanish Terracotta Petit Bowl
There is colorful painted ceramics in almost every part of Barcelona. As part of the decor, on buildings, and when you are at a Tapas bar enjoying small plates and a glass of Sangria. When I saw this mini Tapas bowl my mind went crazy with all the different ways you could use it. It's the perfect size to hold sea salt, spices, a little olive oil, a small taste of green olives on the side. And of course, I love that they are so cute and perfect for holding your rings and jewelry on the dresser. But of course for me, I was super excited about the idea mixing a small amount of a DIY skin and beauty treatment and better yet, using the bowl to mix a few drops of your FACE Flash Oil with a few drops of your foundation for the perfect glowing flawless face. You will love this little trick to looking good while whipping your skin into shape.
Dishwasher, microwave and food safe.
Blood Orange Infused Olive Oil
Oranges and Olives. Could there be any better summation of a Spanish summer? Catalan women are known for their radiance and vibrance they achieve by eating a healthy mediteranean diet. This Olive Oil was pressed from a Spain original, the Arbequin olive native to Spain, and is so good that it's now growing and being harvested in other parts of the world. It’s known for its delicate flavor and jam packed health benefits. Whether you drizzle it on a salad or use it for your skin or hair (a big Catalan beauty secret- applying a few drops of Olive Oil to the ends of your hair to get rid of peachy split ends) , you’ll be basking in the beautiful aromas of Spain.
Lemon-stuffed Manzanilla Olives
3.2 OZ (drained wt.)
I fell in love with all the citrus in Barcelona and all the yummy fresh olives you can find in the market. I remember having these delicious lemon stuffed olives that were so good I had to pick some up to bring home. I wanted to bring you a taste of this. The tart lemon adds the brightness to the taste and how pretty these look when you serve them in a bowl. The Spanish have figured out you can stuff olives with just about anything. These are some of the best Manzanilla Olives from the South of Spain, stuffed with a delicious lemon paste. And don't forget… olives make a great DIY for your skin!
Soft Summer Scarf
As you make your way through Barcelona’s shopping streets in El Born and the Gothic Quarter, you can’t miss all the colorful scarves people are wearing and that are being sold in the cute boutique shops. Tassled, patterned, striped -- all are expressions of the fashion and flair that is Barcelona and the perfect companion to all your rooftop cocktails runs. It was so hard to decide which ones to buy, so I got two. You'll either receive a pretty tassled pink scarf that reminds me of the beauty of the pink sunsetting skies or a stunning turquoise green that captures the color of the Mediterranean sea.
