New fragrances can be
fun, but it’s nice to be able
to fall back on something
truly time-tested. Take,
for example, Black Jade
from Lubin. Though newly
launched, Black Jade is a
painstaking recreation of the
signature scent of French
Queen Marie Antoinette.
Blended with bergamot,
cardamom, rose and amber,
the scent was legendary at
its time, so much so that it
is credited with giving away
the Queen’s disguise as she

Your body is your temple, your palace, your
vehicle for traveling in the beautiful journey of
life. Yet you never like what you see in the mirror.
Even though no on else can hear it, you say
hurtful things about yourself all the time. Is it
possible to go from loathing your body to loving
it? I think so. Here are some simple tactics to
start thinking more positively:
• Don’t wait until you’re 2, 20, or 200 pounds
lighter to wear clothes that fit you well and
flatter your figure.
• Make a list of 10 things you like about
yourself that have nothing to do with your
looks. Then next time you feel down about your
appearance or start to self-criticize, take out this
list and remind yourself just how awesome you
are every single day.
• Exercise makes you feel strong, fit and
healthy. It also makes you feel good!
• Honor your body by eating as much
nutritious food as possible and stop making every
food decision based on calories alone. Honor your
cravings without going overboard and don’t let
the occasional indulgence send you into a spiral
of shame and disapproval.
No one should have to feel bad about how
they look, and everyone CAN develop a healthier
