Don't Take This Lying Down

Cutie Tip for Today: Opinion Poll! To Pee or not to Pee is the question? GoGirl aka ( Female Pee Pot ) One of our loyal fans sent me a link to this product which states Don't Take Life Sitting Down. After checking out the website and reading about how life's greatest adventures shouldn't be finding a bathroom etc I... am still torn about whether someone or I would use this product. I must admit that GoGirl did a GREAT JOB with their website and packaging. It almost makes you forget what you are looking at. So I ask, all fans, would you ever use this product??? If so, what scenarios would you use it for? Be Honest!

Brush Breakdown

Cutie Tip for Today: Good Makeup brushes can make all the difference but with so many to choose from, how do you pick? Well here are my suggestions. Buy the Perfect 10 plus 3. Pick up the Perfect 10 Brush Set from Sephora. These brushes will do the trick , they are soft but durable and they come in a great pink case. For the price point you get a selection of all the face and eye brushes you need and it also comes with the ever popular lip and brow brush. This set is just about perfect but I would suggest adding three indivdual brushes: Smashbox Crease Brush #10; MAC Large Powder Brush #134 and FINALLY the best brush ever created CHANEL Brush #4. Once you have invested in these brushes you should be good to go. Keep them clean by mixing some baby shampoo and luke warm water in a bowl, swirl the brush, run under warm water and then let the brush air dry on a clean cloth or paper towels. Oh, and pick up some make up sponges at the drug store, the wedge shape is the best!

Who Doesn't Love a Good BLOW out!?

Cutie Tip for Today: Who doesn't love a good BLOW out? An instant mood lifter for me is when I have a fantastic blow out at an amazing salon but I always wish I could get that same look at home. Well now you can, with the help of BLOW HAIR CARE. This line of hair care is hip, trendy, and hairmazing! My personal favor...ites from the line are BLOW UP Shampoo and Conditioner which adds the perfect amount of lift at the root so your hair looks full and healthy after every styling. Another must have is Mane Tame which controls style and adds weightless definition without greasy residue. Hair stays fresh and alive. And to top it all off, these products have finally come to Philly. They are staples in NYC but DnA Salon is now a BLOW retail partner. So stop into Dnasalon Hairsalon for a BLOW OUT and take one home with you!

Cutie Tip for Today: Can't Believe Your Eyes Alert! CHANEL has done it again, when they created their Les Trompe-L'Oeil De Chanel. What am I speaking of--- well skin art of course. But this skin art is not your average Cracker Jack prize temporary tattoo. Chanel's Skin Art really does play tricks to your eye. If ap...plied correctly, people might even think you are really wearing some bling. These are hands down the most glamorous temp tattoo’s I have ever seen. These little gems are a bit of an investment $75.00 per sheet but COME ON...they are the first of their kind and just REALLY COOL!

Time after Time

Facebook Touch of Blush LLC: Time after Time my clients and friends ask me , ' How long can I keep my makeup' Well, @CargoCosmetics has come up with a genius idea. Check out their blu_ray HD Lip Gloss with Timestrip. You will love the high shine and plumping effects of this gloss ( Halifax and Vermont my fav colors) This glos...s is perfect for pictures because it is long lasting, full of hydratrion for a smoothing effect. BUT here is the kicker the TimeStrip built into this gloss is one of the coolest inventions in the cosmetics. Timestrip™ is a technology that remembers when a product was first opened and alerts you when it is no longer wise to use it. So no more wondering when it’s time to replace that gloss.

Quote for Today: I have never found a quote I agree with more then this one

"It's better to be noticed for blood-red lipstick or bright blue eyeshadow...than to walk around with timidly applied conventional makeup, looking like a great big question mark"

Who needs makeup when we have Apricots?

HA! Even though I am not ready to give up my cosmetic bag quite yet, I might just have to add some dried apricots to my kit for a snack.   I recently learned that APRICOTS are a wonderful anti aging weapon. Try working some apricots into your diet and you will be happy with all their fantastic benefits.  Maybe the saying should read, some apricots a day keep the wrinkles away. Here are just a few things that these little orange treat's have to offer:
Apricots possess the highest levels and widest variety of carotenoids.

Carotenoids are antioxidants that help prevent heart disease, reduce “bad cholesterol” levels, and protect against cancer.

Apricots are considered helpful in regenerating body fluids, detoxifying, and quenching thirst.

So next time you are out shopping for that really expensive rejuvenating night or eye cream take a detour to the grocery store and buy some apricots instead!

Who knew that watching the behind the scenes interviews from the Miss America Pageant could be a choking hadzor. Well it was for me when I heard one of many beauties mention that she sprayed HAIRSPRAY on her face to seal and lock her make up in place before the show. I feel as though there should have been blinking lights over her face stating " DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME" Spraying hairspray on your face is never a good idea . If you are in need of a seal and locking agent try a professional product and you can buy it for less then some hairsprays.  I reccomend Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Sealer simply spray once over any completed makeup application and then let the Nye Dry. You will have a smudge and water resistant finish in a flash.  Even in the most intense moments, Nye will keep things in place. This is a powerful product so do use a bit of caution on very sensitive skin.  Please use the hairspray for what it was intended for, the hairs on your head.  Your skin will thank us for it! 

Best Foot Forward...

Cutie Tip for Today: It's time to put your best foot forward. Even though sandals seem far off in the future there is no time like the present to treat your feet. M.A.C just released their SPRING line of nail lacquer. This polish promises a no streak, no chip, super long lasting finish and contains nail conditioners ...and UV protection. BEST OF ALL THE COLORS ARE TO DIE FOR! My personal favorite is Abalone Shell but I might just buy them all!

Is AXE Body Spray the new Drakkar Noir

Every once in awhile I will be shopping around Target and strolling down the fragrance isle and I find myself drawn to that deep dark black bottle with the white writing that so simply states Drakkar Noir. Everytime I take the smallest whiff memories of : spin the bottle, 7 minutes in heaven, shell necklaces from the shore, first kisses and MC Hammer pants come flooding back to me. I always think to myself there just has not been a fragrance for the Tween generation like Drakkar was in the 90's. Well it seems that I am incorrect. According to the New York Times,

"Younger boys are using Axe body sprays to feel more masculine. Though the target demographic for the products are men ages 18 to 24, boys from 10 to 14 are buying the products. A middle school gym teacher on Axe: "It’s not necessarily a hygiene thing. If they’ve been sweating, they’ll use it as a mask instead of a shower."

For the rest of this insightful article on this Tween essential check out this article in the NYT.

Now back to my Charles in Charge reruns:)

Soulmates and SOLEMATES

This past weekend I celebrated my 5 year wedding anniversary. I spent a lot of time thinking about the wedding day itself: the rittenhouse hotel in the snow, amazing food from LaCroix, killer music from eddie bruce, beautiful pink and white fur shrug and muff and PINK WEDDING GOWN from michael boris, and being surrounded by amazing friends and family. The rest of the weekend I spent thinking about my SOUL MATE--- my husband!
Since soul mate was on the brain and it inspired me to write about a must have product.
OK LADIES, here is how to revolutionize your high heel wearing experience. SOLEMATES has saved the day. The SoleMates High Heeler is almost invisible to the naked eye and attaches easily to any stilettos or kitten heal. The uses and benefits for this product go on and on. No more sinking into soil and grass, no more getting stuck in the cracks as your race for the taxi in your Christian Louboutin's and the two best perks on all:
  • THEY HELP SAVE YOUR SOLE! This product will help prolong the life of your sacred heels!
  • Less Slip, when strutting your stuff across that dance floor or stage this little secret weapons give you some extra grip.
All in all Solemates have become one of my favorite little treats to pop into my purse for events and I have even added them to my makeup kit just in case one of my clients needs a little help finding their sole! :)
