Groove Me….Baby – Tonight!


I love the salt and sugar scrubs, the bath bombs and all the fun bath time treats we’ve grown to love over the years that help to make the time to ourselves a bit more special, but sometimes I just want a good-ole-fashioned bar of soap and a rag. Grove Bar Soap ($12) a natural bar from Carol’s Daughter is handmade with red currant, honey and cocoa might just be what I’m looking for. It promises a non-sticky feeling and moisture intensity, which will work for the problems this up and down weather has been causing my skin. The Groove line has much to offer, but I think I’m going to groove to the basics.

Vintage Lavish Movies: Black Orpheus

Lately, I’ve been getting more into the classic cinema of yesteryear via the Turner Classic Movies channel. So, it was an absolute treat to see that they were airing a movie that I’d wanted to see for years:


After being mesmerized by the beauty of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s bossa nova and the magic of Rio de Janeiro, I was swept away by the modern retelling of the Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. A tale of love discovered and lost, the Marcel Camus-directed movie captured one of
film’s greatest pairings, Breno Mello and Marpessa Dawn:

What struck me most about this movie were the simple ways that love was expressed. Whether it was a tune that was played on a guitar or playful banter amongst lovers, beauty was revealed – thus creating a timelessly stunning flick. I highly recommend that you add this to your movie collection or Netflx queue. Until then, do enjoy the trailer:
