In Celebration of Mother's Day and Beautiful Genes...

I love Mother's Day!  It always takes place in the early spring, when life inevitably is busy, but you then get to take a full day out of your normally crazy schedule to create special moments with your mom and family. That is my idea of a holiday...a holiday that celebrates women such as my mom, who have made a tremendous impacts on their children's lives.   I wish there were 10 Mother's Day throughout the year because I would then get to spend at least 10 days out of the year with my mom celebrating all that she has done for me.

In thinking about this, I have created a MOTHER- DAUGHTER Makeup Package in honor of Mother's Day. I feel the best gifts are gifts that create memories, so with that in mind, here is an amazing gift idea for Mother's Day or just a way to create some more fun memories with mom!

When you think you have seen it all, YOU HAVEN'T! Skinny Beach Sticks

Slim Fast, Jenny Craig , Weight Watchers, Atkins, South Beach, Cleanse, Detox, wonder fruits, wonder roots, wonder pills, all promising to to help you shed those unwanted pounds.

Tanning Beds, Bronzing powder, Tanning creams and lotion, Tanning gloves, Spray Tans, Tanning Lamps, tanning reflector boards all promising to enhance that beautiful healthy glow.

People spend tons of bucks on both  for the ultimate svelte figure bronzed to perfection it wasn't  until today that  I discovered a product that actually claims to BOTH AT THE SAME TIME.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this product.

Skinny Beach Sticks claim to boost your tan while minimizing burn and shedding water weight. It is a unique supplement that increases your skin's tanning pigments ( contains beta carotene, lycopene ) while all that bronzing is going on the supplement encourages fat burning and blocks the absorption of lipids by incorporating green tea extracts and meadowsweet extracts.

Here is what you are supposed to do.  2 weeks before your next vacation of fun in the sun buy 14 of these little packets of citrus flavored powder for $60.00.  Add the packets to a small glass of water on a daily basis and BAM you will suddenly Slim Down and Tan Faster and Darker.

So if you want to look like a combo between these two below pick up Skinny Beach Sticks.

PERSONALLY I will stick to Ice Water,Coppertone, beach towel,  and some ice cream when I hit the beach:)

When I grow up, I want to be a...?

I remember adults would always ask that question and the kids of my generation ( late 70's and early 80's ) would always respond the same way. When I grow up I want to be a teacher, doctor, fireman , police officer or lawyer. All great and well established careers. All careers that are still considered to be extremely admirable in the eyes of most.  

WELL THANKS TO FAO SCHWARZ and SmartLabs we will now have a new answer to that question.  An answer that I am thrilled about...

When I grow up , I want to be a MAKEUP ARTIST!   Yes, it's true, there is now an official MAKEUP ARTIST STUDIO GAME for Children 8-14.  ( and me age 31 ) And I must say, it is AWESOME.  This game allows you to step into the world of glam heaven with the one-of-a-kind makeup artist studio to unveil your inner cosmo girl. Professional makeup artist techniques combined with art materials that replicate makeup ensure easy success for six unique looks: glamour, natural, runway, twenties, mod, and cat eye.

Personally, I think this product is great for the kid in all of us and as they state "Unleash Some Serious Fun!"
