In this months HAWT report I’m bringing you a few of my favorite things from beauty to fashion! If this is your first HAWT report let me give you the 411…I love sharing great finds, brainstorms, and really whatever the heck is on my mind! Sometimes many of these things and ideas are pretty HAWT and even thought provoking (go figure). Since I do have my own little space in the world to share, I figured why the hell not share with some of my favorites peeps…how freakin’ lucky are you?!?! Each month I will bring you The HAWT Report with great fashion finds, cool gadgets, health and beauty must-haves, exciting trends, and whatever else I feel fits!

PopSugar Must-Have

If you are like me you love this craze of curated beauty boxes, fashion boxes, pet boxes, and the list goes on. I must admit I have 3 different ones I subscribe to and will be adding another one soon. However, I am doing this for me and you (wink, wink), so my obsession is completely justified.

One of my new favorite boxes is from Popsugar; can these guys do any wrong – and sorry I digress! It’s called Must Have-Popsugar’s Monthly Favorites. It is curated by their founder, Lisa Sugar. In it she gives us the best in fashion, beauty, home, fitness and healthy products. You can do a month to month, 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. The other thing that sets them apart from other boxes is the products are all full-size! This is huge for me, and I’ve gotten amazing items so far. Click here to go directly to the sign-up link.

Clarisonic Cleansing Device

I finally broke down and got a Clarisonic cleansing device! For the last few years my esthetician has used one during my facials and suggested that I get one because of its deep cleaning abilities. Additionally, what it provides over the traditional methods of me just cleaning my face with cleanser and a towel, basic beauty sponge, or something along those lines:

The speed of this device produces 300 movements per second, which works to loosen dirt and oil, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming skin to better absorb topical treatments. The one I selected was the Limited Edition PLUS Joy, because of its speed and value. This one comes with the device, body brush head, sensitive skin head, sample size cleanser, sample size body cleaner 2 oz., and a Universal Voltage Charging Cradle.


This online fashion subscription service was founded by Kim Kardashian, Robert Shapiro, and Brian Lee. Besides the fact that their head stylist is Rachel Zoe and she provides favorite shoe picks in her The Rachel Zoe Reports; or the fact that they have a line of shoes designed by Gwen Stefani (love her). You should love that as a member once you indicate your fashion preferences and answer a few questions about your style, you get a customized shoe shopping experience. Did I mention that the prices are more than reasonable; so for shoe lovers this is UTOPIA!


Until soon…Toodles !
