A New Eyelash Drug...

The makers of Botox have just gotten FDA approval on an eyelash thickening drug called Latisse. The formula promises to lengthen, thicken and darken eyelashes when dabbed daily on the lash line. Users can expect to see results with two - four months use. Side effects include itchy eyes, eye redness, a change in skin color, and a potentially permanent darkening of the iris.

Available in March by a physician and will set you back about $120.00.

If you're seriously lash-challenged, then I guess this would be worth a try. But if you're just looking for some temporary va-va-va-voom for a night out, I think a $5 tube of mascara will do.

So Fresh & So Clean...

I found another one! I tend to prefer body sprays over perfumes because they are not as concentrated. For whatever reason, whenever I wear perfume, I always end up sneezing and my eyes become irritated. Victoria's Secret - Pink Fresh & Clean body spritz is a light body spray that smells, dare I say, soooo clean with notes of crisp apple and soft lily. And best of all, the scent lasts all day.

The mist also comes in two other scents, Soft & Pure and Fruity & Bright and is available @ Bath & Body Works.

Ain't nobody dope as me I'm dressed so fresh so clean...(So fresh and so clean clean)...Don't you think I'm so sexy I'm dressed so fresh so clean...(So fresh and so clean clean)

Reunited & It Feels Sooo Good...

I just rediscovered this this morning...under my bathroom sink...lol. A great cleanser that keeps your hands amazingly soft after washing. Great for the winter.

It's a gel-like cleanser, with aloe vera and jojoba oils, that melts in your hands...literally! Just slather some on dry hands and rinse. When you're done, scratch your hands....NO ASH AT ALL!

Don't just keep it near your bathroom sink, but your kitchen sink too. If you're like me, you wash your hands 50 times when cooking a meal....why? I dunno, I just do. Also a great gift for people in the heathcare/medical field, they wash their hands all the time!

Availabe at Bath & Body Works


Beyonce's Red Carpet Fuzz...

Beauty Recipes...

Well December is here, one of the three coldest months of the year. And with it comes dry, flaky, itchy skin. Here are a few home remedies & recipes Tammi Gindle of JuJu Spa and Organics shared on ABC's Action News last night to help combat dry skin:

- Get a bottle of Primrose oil capsules. Poke a little pin prick in the capsules and put it right on the irritated areas.

- Combine one tablespoon dry oatmeal with one tablespoon honey. Slather it on your worst areas and let it sit for 30 minutes

- Combine one tablespoon dry oatmeal with one egg white. Place on your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes

- Tea tree oil has been known to penetrate into the skin's cellular level. Add 1 drop of oil to your favorite day or night cream to help moisturize and smooth skin.

- Half an hour before you take your bath, massage yourself either with warm olive, mustard or coconut oil. After bathing blot yourself dry; do not rub yourself dry

- Dry Skin Mask
1 egg
1 tsp. honey
½ tsp. olive oil
Few drops rose water
Mix together and use as a mask

- Fruit Recipe
puree 1 banana
puree 1 papaya, peach or avocado
Apply to skin for 20 min., rinse with warm water, follow with moisturizer
