One way is Bodycology. Everyone knows Bodycology, right? That great brand that gives us deliciously scented bath and body products at a budget friendly price tag? Yeah, I thought so. Well, the brand is back with some new delights for Fall. One of these delights is the Bodycology Toasted Sugar scent.

Thanks to Kotex for sponsoring the 5 Must Have Handbag Essentials.

We all know that women seem to carry everything and the kitchen sink around in their bags.

“Do you have a socket wrench?”

“Why yes, I think I do, let me look.”

It’s beyond ridiculous. We don’t need all this junk, though. Nope. We only need to carry a few things, and these are my top five handbag essentials.

Kick Bad Habits to The Curb

It goes without saying that bad habits should be kicked to the curb immediately. This includes eating junk, smoking, and binge drinking. Sure you can have the odd treat meal and drink, but don’t go overboard! Not only will you put on layers of fat, you’ll also jeopardize the condition of your skin, bones, teeth, and other things. Treat yourself as a temple, and do things for yourself because you want to be healthy and happy.

Healthy hair that’s full of volume makes a huge difference to your general appearance. Everyone will ask you how to get gorgeous hair.

Keeping your hair full of life will help to keep you full of life too. And doing so isn’t very hard, as long as you’re willing to put the time and effort in. Of course, not everyone’s hair can be beautifully voluminous the natural way. But anyone can get a bit of help from some trusty hair care products.  Continue reading for tips on how to get gorgeous hair.

I recently had the opportunity to check out the Beauty Box 5 again when the good folks over there sent me the April 2014 Beauty Box 5.

What is your personal aesthetic?  Some people like sleek and modern, with lots of white and polished metal.  Others like country chic with dusty shades of green or lavender. And still others go for the cabin chic look with tree branches, animals, and hunter green.

Me?  I go for bold. I love color.  I love texture.  I love pattern.  I bet you’d never guess that from looking at my site, though, would ya?  Anyway, that’s one of the reasons I was so excited to see that Kleenex had partnered with one of my favorite designers for their new line of designer prints.

When I was 15 or so, we moved to Seattle.  This move seriously changed my life.  It was partly the age and partly being introduced to so many new experiences.  One of these new experiences was my introduction to Lush Cosmetics.  It was literally like a paradise of beauty products.  Bath bombs and lotions and cleansers, oh my!

One of the biggest banes of my life is shaving my legs.  I absolutely abhor it, and will do just about anything to avoid that awful task.

Why do I hate shaving my legs so?  Let me count the ways!

That coarse, wiry hair seems to exist only to mock me.  I can shave my legs, and it grows back fast.  Like really fast.  Within a day or two, you have to repeat this awful task.  No thank you.  Factor in nicks, cuts, and razor burn, and fuhgeddaboutit.

A couple weeks ago, I told you that I was taking the Olay Regenerist Luminous challenge.  I switched out my regular skin care regimen and replaced it with the new Olay Regenerist Luminous line.  As part of the challenge, I was to use the Olay Regenerist line for two weeks, and report back with my findings.

AS much as I don’t really want to admit it, I’m not getting any younger.  While my skin is still in really excellent shape, I’d probably rather be proactive than reactive.  I mean, it’s easier to guard against wrinkles, dark spots, and other damage than to try to reverse this kind of skin damage & signs of aging.

To this point, I’ll be testing out the Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Care line.  This line is similar to boutique products with a much more pocketbook friendly price tag.  Some of the highlights of the Olay Regenerist Luminous Skin Care line include:

  • Brightens skintone
  • Fades the look of discoloration and dark spots
  • Reduces the appearance of undereye darkness and circles
  • Improves skin’s texture

Follow along on twitter & Instagram with #luminousglow to see how the skincare routine is coming along.  Check back in a couple weeks for  my thoughts, too.

I am a beauty product junkie. It almost doesn’t matter where I am, if there’s a display of some type of beauty products, I’m checking it out. Unfortunately, there are some really bad, and bad for you, ingredients in many beauty lines. I’m talking about items that have been banned from our food supplies, but somehow are still acceptable to slather all over ourselves.
