SARAH ALEXANDRA’S 6 PICKS FOR FEBRUARY

February is a month of in betweens – not quite the depths of winter, but still cold enough to want to bundle up. With the fresh outlook of spring on the horizon we’d like to update our palate to feel fun and fresh, while maintaining some solid staples. Sarah has six essentials to add to your shopping list:

1) Klhip Nail Clippers

There’s a reason they’re called the “best nail clippers in the world”! Sarah got these in her stocking for Christmas and she’s been hooked since. They not only sport a great design, they feel great in your hands and clip with ease.

2) Bond Cannabis Oil

If you’re looking for some extra fun in this romantic season, try locally made Bond Cannabis Oil. Made by Botanica Seattle, has gained a devoted following because of its ability to enhance female experience.

3) Maria Christofilis Parfum Missive 15

If love had a scent, it would be this! There’s nothing like these lingering exotic, complex notes that merge together into a beautiful oriental woody abstraction. You’ll have everyone asking what you’re wearing! 

4) Kyle Bunting Monogram Pillow

These customizable cow-hide monogram pillows make a great customizable gift for your loved ones — but that shouldn’t stop you from gifting one to yourself! They come in all the colors and styles you can imagine to fit your interior decor for even the choosiest.

5) Sarah Alexandra GI Jane Signature Shirt

Sometimes you just need to be the boss! Feel powerful and ready to march over your New Years Resolutions with one of Sarah’s signature shirts. Sarah was so obsessed with this particular shade she sent a swatch to her mill in Italy to create this lush color just for you, that’s dedication.

6) Mentos Chewing Gum in Bubble Fresh Cotton Candy

When you’re out on the town and need a little sweetness in your life, these purse stuffers are a great pick me up. There’s nothing like the taste of cotton candy with none of the calories.

​1. Bioderma Micellar Cleansing Water

We know A French pharmacy staple, the original micellar water for super gentle cleansing and easy makeup removal.

 

2. Givenchy Hydra Sparkling One-Minute Glow Powder

I keep this in my kit for quick and gentle exfoliation before applying makeup – everyone loves it!

 

3. SK-11 Facial Masks

Absolutely indulgent but worth the price – they brighten, lift and hydrate tired complexions in record time. A must before an important event or during a plane ride if you can ignore the stares!

 

4. Natura Bisse Diamond Oil

I love the entire NB line but this oil in particular gives skin the most incredible texture and diminishes lines immediately.

 

5. Cle De Peau Concealer

Like a magic eraser, it spot corrects and brightens tired under eyes like no other. A little goes a long way…which is good since it’s a bit of an investment at $70.

 

6. Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation

The most beautiful, HD quality makeup. Skin appears flawless under even the most scrutinizing camera.

 

7. Kevyn Aucoin Lip-Liner in medium

Literally the most perfect nude on the planet!

 

8. L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara

Classic, inexpensive, volume building mascara that doesn’t flake or dry out your lashes. A forever favorite.

 

9. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

FA dual Highlighter and Bronzer combo that sculpts gorgeous Hollywood-worthy cheekbones you didn’t realize you had. It comes in two shades to flatter a variety of complexions. Don’t forget to pick up the brush they sell to go with it!

 

10. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Seriously, sex in a can. For the most gorgeous hair with mega volume, this favorite smells so divine everyone will literally ask you what fragrance you’re wearing. That, is after complimenting you on your perfect hair. A definite must-have.

Sarah’s Top San Francisco Spots

San Francisco is one of the most undeniably gorgeous cities on the West Coast, but with it’s steep hills, historic buildings and high density of attractions, even the most savvy travelers and shoppers can get lost in the fog. After a recent trip to the Bay, Sarah jotted down her favorite spots so you can be sure your time is fabulous from start to finish.

 

Restaurants

Cotogna is located in San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square, and it’s rustic atmosphere is comforting after a long day of shopping and walking around. If you love Italian food, Cotogna is the spot for you; this stylish spot artfully combines both West Coast flavors and traditional Italian favorites. Only the best seasonal ingredients go into fantastic pastas, pizzas, antipasti and delicious seafood. Be sure to try the melt in your mouth “Gnocchi” potato pillows.

Sarah also loves:

Pizzeria Delfina

Smitten

Statebird Provisions

Boutiques

Located in the heart Filmore street is the fantastic boutique, Heidi Says. Think of your best friend picking out the very best in emerging designers and combining it with the best of your favorite established designers. Needless to say, it will be hard to leave empty handed!

Sarah also loves:

Waterlilies

Elizabeth Charles

Curve

Wilkes Bashford

 

Jewelry

The details really matter, Margaret Elizabeth jewelry proves it. If you are in need of stylish accents for yourself, gifts for your friends and family. Margaret Elizabeth’s simple yet classic designs are to die for.

 

Home Interiors

Anyon Design is an exceptional home design boutique and gallery that combines both modern styles and vintage charm. If you’re in need for a home design inspiration, this spot will refresh your vision. The firm’s owner, Lindsay, works personally with each client to come up with your dream home-scape when you’re finding it hard to put your finger on the details. Think big bay windows and West Coast charm meets modern minimalism.

The Future Perfect

 

Stay

The Four Seasons is right in the center of the all the buzz, close to all of the best shopping (and eating) spots, and a short walk to SFMOMA. The views? To die for. The setting sun over the Golden Gate Bridge from your hotel room is something you need to try on. If you’re an early bird, the coffee bar in the morning is a fantastic wake-up call.

 

Coffee

Jane Coffee not only brews Seattle’s Stumptown Coffee (so you know it must be good),  you can snack on their positively delicious homemade (and gluten free) baked goods while sipping on your favorite coffee. Be sure to try their avocado smashed toast, and the toffee chocolate cookie if you’re feeling like a sweet treat.

Sarah Alexandra’s 6 Picks For January

January is a time to start fresh and bundle up! With the new year comes new goals, but with frosty weather outside we need all the motivation we can get!  That’s why we created a January list of six indispensable picks we can’t live without. These products will help get you through the rest of month in one piece. Here are six essentials to add to your shopping list stat:

Obviously, you want to start the year off right by looking smart in a shirt that can take you from home to work – and beyond! Winter can be one of the best times to wear your whites and that’s why we recommend the Sarah Alexandra Winter White Creme Flannel shirt. This Italian cotton and cashmere blend shirt is perfect for layering under winter garments, but is also stylish enough to stand on its own!

SA_6PicksJanuary

Doesn’t it seem like something’s going around every time winter approaches? With cold weather unfortunately comes the spread of germs. That’s why hand washing is so important for the whole family, because good hygiene helps keep everyone healthy. Soap can be filled with detergents and harsh chemicals, but Savon de Marseille Liquid Soap is the real deal and, as an added bonus, it comes in 3 delicious scents: orange, lavender and verbena.

SA_6PicksJanuary

Now that the new year is here, it’s time to kick off your resolutions and get yourself into high gear! Finding the drive to workout in the bitter cold is no easy task. That’s why Sarah recommends the stationary Peloton Bike to get you pumped. With the Peloton you can keep your fitness routine indoors where it’s warm! Additionally, a built-in screen connects you to studio classes so you can get the energy of a gym without having to leave home.

SA_6PicksJanuary

 

This time of year it’s hard to keep going throughout the day. Freezing temperatures and limited daylight can really take their toll. That’s why the Nespresso Matte Black VertuoLine coffee and espresso machine is such a lifesaver! A cup of caffeine will help perk you up and get you through, and the sleek design will look great in your home kitchen or office break room.

SA_6PicksJanuary

It’s hard to look your best this time of year. With the air so dry, skin can look dull and lifeless. That’s where Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder comes in! This airy powder, from brand legend Christian Dior, rescues lackluster skin and adds light to help bring it back to life.

 

SA_6PicksJanuary

Last, but certainly not least, these well-kept. screen and lens cleansing towelettes  are an essential for the work day! Whether trying to video chat with colleagues or complete an assignment on a touchscreen, the electronics we use can get pretty grimy. But a few frequent swipes with these sweetly designed sheets will keep things running smoothly while keeping your devices clean as a whistle.

Sarah Shares Her New Year’s Resolutions For 2017

Sarah Shares Her New Year’s Resolutions For 2017

It’s that time of year again for New Year’s resolutions! The upcoming new year is a time to reflect on what positive changes we’d like to make in the next part of our lives. Sometimes it’s about giving something up and other times it’s about holding onto things we may be taking for granted. Each year brings changes, including to ourselves, and it’s important to embrace the changes that better ourselves and help us reach our goals. But remember: Try to pick realistic objectives and don’t be too hard on yourself. Sarah shares three of her resolutions for 2017 to help inspire and motivate you!

First Resolution: Put away the phone at night!

We are all guilty of doing it. We walk through the front door and, instead of decompressing and connecting with our families, we worry about a work crisis or an upcoming event and forget to unplug. In this day and age everything moves so fast, including our technology! But, it’s vital for our health and relationships to disconnect and be present for our loved ones.

SA_Resolutions

Next Resolution: Workout 3 days a week!

With work and kids and errands, fitting in exercise can be next to impossible! Still, workouts are crucial when it comes to a healthy body, and they can also improve energy, mood and thinking. It’s important not to take our health for granted, so consider what time of day works best for you and try to stick with it, even if you only have 15 minutes! Sarah recommends joining a yoga studio, such as Freedom Seeker Yoga (run by friend and fellow local business owner Jaime Scates Schmitz) to help kick start your fitness commitment.

SA_Resolutions

Last Resolution: Go to Iceland!

Travel can be so replenishing! Having an adventure in a new place is exciting, inspiring and can help you understand the world – and even yourself – better. Iceland, in particular, is high on Sarah’s list, because it offers so much: volcanoes, waterfalls, northern lights and ponies! With reasonable airfare and so many unique things to do and see, Iceland is a must for your wanderlust list!

Happy New Year!
