Glow Baby, GLOW!

"Summa summa summatiiiiime....lets just sit back and unwind". There's nothing sexy about flaky, dry skin,
especially in the summatime. Exposed arms, exposed legs...and whatever other body parts you're comfortable "exposing".

Here are a few items I use to fight that battle:

First, I like to use my Gingerbread Man salt scrub by Philosophy.
I personally prefer to scrub on dry skin as opposed to
wet skin. I feel like I get a better "scrub" when I do
it this way. But if you have sensitive skin, use on wet skin.
Afterwards, I rinse off and proceed to cleanse with one
of my many body washes.

Next, while I'm still a little damp, I slather on Neutrogena's Body oil. It's a light sesame oil that disappears into ur skin. No greasy feeling at all! I usually get the fragrance free version. I don't want any competition of scents on my glistening bodaayyy. (Walmart's Equate body oil is good too).

Lastly, I use Stila's Sun Shimmer Dry Oil mixed in with some body lotion
(Lubriderm's SPF 15 lotion).
Don't worry, this is not one of those sparkly, teeny bopper shimmers.
It's very subtle and "I'm so not trying to glow" looking
and when mixed in with your body lotion, it's defintely toned down
for daytime use.

And there you have it, sun-kissed, poolside in St. Tropez skin. STOP IT !!!!!!!!!!

What Uses Batteries & Vibrates?

MASCARA of course....(PG thoughts ladies, PG!!)

Estée Lauder will launch TurboLash All Effects Motion Mascara on July 17th exclusively at Saks and will retail for $30. The gel formula composed of jellied water, olive oil and paraffin waxes vibrates at 125 micropulses per second. Their philosophy is that there IS “a relationship between vibration, length, volume, separation and curl.” Funny, I dont remember this in Physics class, but I will be sure to inquire on the 17th!

Soon following later this year, no specific date and price announced, will be Lancôme's Ôscillation. The polymer-based mascara will move at 7,000 micropulses per minute, providing 360-degree coat of mascara on each lash. It was created to emulate the zigzag movement makeup artists use to apply mascara. The result: “organized” and evenly coated lashes.

Um, am I the only one who thinks this may be a little dangerous? Brings new meaning to the phrase "Killer Lashes" huh! But being the junkie that I am, I will be the 1st to try it...Stay Tuned!


Take It Off.....

Now we all know that going to bed with a clean face is a must!...But dammit, have you ever had one of those looong nights out and when you get home you just do not feel like going through your routine? I get that " oh what's one pimple" feeling every time I have a late night out, hell sometimes on regular nights too.

In comes Neutrogena Cleasning Towelettes! I discovered these bad boys after a long night out with my cousin. Just a few swipes of these wipes over your face and you're good to go, to bed that is, no moisturizer needed afterwards. Keep a pack of these on your nightstands for those lazy nights and your face will thank you in the a.m.!!!

Available pretty much everywhere: Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, etc etc....


Who Wears Short Shorts?

Hey Everybody,

Yesterday was the official first day of summer and I couldn't be happier. Summer dresses, flip flops, gynourmous sunglasses and bright bold colors that remind me of the carribean....aaaghhhh! Apparently Essie is feeling the same about bright bold colors. Their new Neon Collection boasts four fabulous colors that look great on all skintones.

The four colors, from left to right, include: Shorty Pants (yellow), Short Shorts (pink), Mini Shorts (orange)and Bermuda Shorts (purple). Right now I'm rockin' the pink on my toes and have gotten tons of comps!!

Essie offers the limited edition colors in a mini set. Get yours @ Essie and step out in style!
