Kai Perfume Oil, Room / Linen Spray and Kai’s brand new candle have been getting all sorts of attention this Spring. Check out what the press has to say about all of these wonderful products!
Lingerie is lovely, but taking a whiff of tuberose can also enhance romance by increasing sensual feelings, research shows. Before you and your honey hit the sack, spritz your sheets with tuberose-spiked Kai Home Room / Linen Spray.
“Jennifer’s Pick: I love the way this makes a room smell sweet and flowery without being overwhelming.” (Jennifer Garner)
At Beauty of a Site, our staff is totally crazy about Kai; we simply can’t get enough! We’re glad to see that everyone else agrees! Click here to browse all of the Kai products that we carry, including our exclusive Beauty of a Site Kai Gift Set!

Looking for something a little different in the easter basket this year? It’s easy to give candy, cards and chocolate for easter each year, but what about something that will last a little longer, and be a little more fun? Here are Beauty of a Site’s top four picks for Easter Basket fillers!
1. Mini Nail Polish sets. Both Essie and OPI have a bunch of really cute mini nail polish sets that include four colors in mini little bottles. These are a perfect small gift, especially when you’re not sure exactly which color someone would like. Our best selling minis for the season are OPI Pink Softshades, Essie Art of Spring Mega Minis and OPI Tiny Takeouts from the Hong Kong Collection.
2. Lookin’ Good For Jesus Bath & Body: That’s right- it’s perfect! This clever and funny line of products is titled “Lookin’ Good for Jesus” and is covered with funny phrases and fitting scents for the holiday. Choose lip gloss, a bath product kit, bubble bath or hand creme- in an Easter lily scent! Click here to check them all out!
3. Aunt Sadie’s Candles: In several new and spring fragrances, check out Aunt Sadie’s famous candles as a great addition to an Easter basket. Each candle is poured into a neat tin can and is the perfect size for a small basket. The powerful (but not overpowering) scented wax will fill a home with smells of spring. Check out the entire line of candles here.
4. Perfume oils: For something a little more elegant, include one of Beauty of a Site’s favorite perfume oils in a love one’s gift. These bottles are small and perfect for a basket, but are of the highest quality essential oils. Both Rosie Jane’s Leila Lou and Kai’s Perfume Oil are extremely popular springtime fragrances that are versatile and light enough that they will please any woman in your life.

Haircare has taken a must needed turn in recent months, focusing on designing lines that promote not only incredible looking results, but healthier hair in the process. Beauty of a Site has recently added two new haircare ranges to help provide our customers with products that will strengthen their hair and enhance its natural beauty.
Deva Concepts Haircare is a botanically based hair care range which is sulfate free and incredibly nutritious. Stripping all unnecessary chemicals out of shampoo, Deva is famous for taking the “poo” out of shampoo. The Deva Concepts range features different products for curly, wavy and chemically processed hair specifically, to help you choose the product that’s perfect for you. Click here to check it out!
Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Hair Care is a wildly popular and extremely effective line of Keratin-infused products that works to restore your hair’s natural keratin proteins to bring you a healthy, shiny, manageable, frizz-free head of hair no matter if it’s completely damaged or just needing a slight pick-me-up. Designed specifically for those whose hair is chemically relaxed (though it is effective with all hair types!), Marcia Teixeira products use the best of Brazilian inspired hair treatments, delivering frizz free shine without excessive pH levels or damaging chemicals.

It’s only fitting that since we started last week blogging about polish that we could start this one with the same thing. Along with the OPI Softshades, we’ve received Essie’s newest collection, The Art of Spring. Featuring very complex and interesting pastels from a palette that praises the world of art and design, we were pleasantly surprised with Essie’s interpretation of the “it” colors for Spring 2010.
As we have come to expect from her, Essie gives us a brand new soft pink and classic red to celebrate the season in Pop Art Pink and Red Nouveau, respectively. However, the subtle gray undertone gives the colors an unexpected complexity and a very trendy look. Lilacism, in particular, redefines a classic lavender to become a shadow dusted lilac; a truly beautiful neutral infused with interesting color. Van D’Go offers another light pink for Spring, but shares the orange-y warm undertones of Tart Deco, while remaining muted and complex. Neo Whimsical features the perfect medium pastel pink we always expect from Essie; cool undertones behind a muted and pastel pink that match any outfit, any occasion and any season. These great colors allow us to enjoy the sophistication of pastels without the easter basket shades we can trip across during this season.

Just this week, we’ve received OPI’s newest collection, the Pink Softshades 2010. Every year around this time, OPI sends us some reinventions of classic pastels to help us celebrate the new season. This year, they thought pink.
From left to right, meet OPI’s new and lovely ladies: Is Not that Precious?, Pink-a-Doodle, I Think in Pink and It’s a Girl. Each shade celebrates part of the giggling, fun-loving, sugar-spice-and-everything-nice culture. With two slightly sheerer and soft pinks alongside bolder, flirtier shades, 2010′s pinks are classic, energetic and a wonderful way to celebrate all that you love this season. OPI calls their collection, “Perfectly innocent. Innocently provacative.” That’s right ladies!
And just in time for fun gifts and Easter baskets, the new shades come in a cute gift set including mini sizes of all the colors. Whether you need to surprise a pink-lover in your life or can’t decide which color to try first, the OPI Pink Mini Nail Lacquer set brings a smile to any girlie-girl’s face.

We’re about done with the drab rainy weather we’re enduring here in Illinois, so we’re turning our thoughts to sunny beaches, relaxation and Spring Break. In preparation, we’ve all started our daily self-tanning regiments so that we’re looking beautiful and bronzed by the time we take off for the islands.

Using a truly unique and professional formulation, St. Tropez’ tanning lotions and whipped bronzers create an even and natural looking tan, every time. The neatest part is that St. Tropez offers a variety of products that give lighter tans or darker tans, quicker tans or gradual tans with special products for legs, face or body.

Like always, the 2010 Oscars were filled with great surprises, incredible hosts, interesting twists and gorgeous dresses. Though there were so many classy dresses crowding the red carpet this year, from the elegance of Kristen Stewart’s midnight blue, to Maggie Gyllenhal’s unique Dries Van Noten and Demi Moore’s flowing ruffles, we particularly loved the glitz that 2010 brought. Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock and even Miley Cyrus choose glittery golds to make their red carpet appearance, and we loved what we saw from them.
Sandra Bullock’s beautiful gown (did you see that lace!? incredible…) combined with her choice to wear her hair down and her bold lips really grabbed our attention. She won the hearts of the academy with her acting, and she certainly won ours with her timeless beauty.
For tips on achieving the classic look that made her famous, check out our Sandra Bullock Steal the Look section here. We’ll give you step by step instructions on getting similar hair, makeup and complexion and suggests products that can help you make it happen! Click here to start browsing.

Chocolate Milk Bath
After being cooped up during the winter, I desire nothing more than something fresh once March hits. I start eating as much fruit as I can get my hands on, and I look forward to the first warm day when I can throw my windows open!
My skin, I’ve found, has those same freshness cravings. So many of the products and soaps I use on my skin contain harsh chemicals. I may look the way I want, but some of those ingredients can simply wreak havoc on my body. Luckily, Fresh Body Market offers a complete line of fresh-off-the-shelves bath and body products made of organic, natural ingredients. Each product is even packaged in a market-like container, to remind you and your loved ones that they are using the freshest formulas available to nurture and pamper your skin.
This month at Beauty of a Site, we’re offering all Fresh Body Market products at 10% off. It’s the perfect opportunity to give your skin that freshness it’s been yearning for. Not sure where to start? Our best selling product at Beauty of a Site is the Chocolate Milk Bath (pictured right). A perfect way to spend a relaxing afternoon, this adorable bubble bath looks just like jug of chocolate milk! ( Also available in coconut and strawberry).
Fresh Body Market products are not the only sale items this month. Check out our Monthly Specials page (click here!) to see which other featured items you can save on!
