Glamsquad App Review {Plus $25 Credit!}

5

Is there anything better than a professionally done blow out?!? I mean, you instantly look look put together, are work- and date-night ready; and if you maintain your blow out correctly, it can last three (or even four!) days. So, what’s better than getting your hair professionally blown out? Getting your hair professionally blown out in your very own home! Scroll down below to get your $25 credit on your first Glamsquad service… https://instagram.com/p/11XF7sTNbh/?taken-by=triplethreatmom The Hubby and I went to the opening night of The Visit, the Broadway show starring Chita Rivera, and I had to have my hair done for the black tie opening…

At-Home Spa Day with Panasonic #Snowvember + GIVEAWAY

16

Busy moms, busy parents. What to give them? The gift of “me-time”. A gift certificate to a spa is always nice but then it’s over and done with in a couple of hours. How about giving them the gift of “me-time” that can keep on giving? So, here’s the deal: a massage at a spa can come and go in an hour, or if you’re lucky two-hours; a facial is about 45-minutes and a wax is about 30 minutes. But this season, give your loved ones an at-home spa day with Panasonic products. Panasonic Handheld Massager: So, my husband LOVED trying this…

How to Make Your Gel Manicure Last Longer

1

I’m a little late to the gel manicure party. Gel manicures have been around for several years and I had only gotten my first gel manicure about 4 weeks ago. I normally never wear color polish on my nails; I like a clear polish for a clean but very understated look. But, I wanted to change things up and went to get a gel manicure. I picked out a Lucky Magazine to guide me through the hottest nail colors for the winter. Lucky told me to go towards the deep wine colors, so I chose a burgundy called “Masquerade” – and with…

Best of StriVectin Beauty Products

0

Ever since I turned the Big 4-0, I’ve decided to fight, kicking and screaming against those terrible wrinkles. I did go to the dermatologist and asked them to write a prescription for Retin-A. I used it for about 3-4 months, but it really is too aggressive for my skin. (I do use Retin-A about once a week.)  But, what I’ve found is that I like using StriVectin products simply because it’s not as tough on my skin and I’ve found a noticeable difference. This post contains affiliate links for an easy shopping experience.  All products combine state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients with StriVectin’s…

3 Ways to Make Your Blowout Last Longer

0

Besides the mani/pedi, the other indulgence that many of us ladies (and those across the country) have indulged in is the blow-out, for us New Yorkers, we go to the The Drybar. I’ve written about The Drybar before and continue to go back and back, and back. Since a blowout is a $50 investment ($40 + $10 tip) it’s wise to learn the tricks to make it last longer. During the past year The Drybar has opened up in my neighborhood (so lucky!!!), I’ve figured out how to use the best products to keep that blowout last longer for 4…

Traveling Beauty Essentials

0

We’ve done so many family trips lately that packing up my traveling beauty essentials has pretty much become routine. I normally don’t have a long beauty process: I like to wash and moisturize my face, and then put on the basics: mascara, eyeliner, blush, lip gloss. When I travel, I also pack some things for “just in case”. All of the products shown can be packed in a gallon sized ziplock bag which can be easily lifted in and out of your bag when you go through security.  Note that this post contains affiliate links. Here’s my top 16 Traveling…

Best Beauty Products to use with Retin-A

17

I was not compensated in any way for this post. This post does contain affiliate links. All opinions expressed are mine. Since turning the Big 4-0, I decided to kick my beauty routine up a notch. I went to the dermatologist and told her that I just turned 40 and that I’d like to give myself a present: a prescription for Retin-A. I used Retin-A as a teenager to take care of my acne. Now, I wanted to use it to prevent the onslaught of wrinkles that will be happening in the next two decades. When I started using Retin-A…

Eucerin: Skin Care for All Seasons

0

I was given samples for the purpose of this post. This post contains affiliate links. All opinions expressed are mine. It’s important to keep your skin looking in tip-top shape especially after a summer of sun, salt and sand. Heading into the cooler months of fall and winter, it’s even more vital to make sure your skin is hydrated. The team at Eucerin gave me a host of products to sample, which, to tell you the truth, I never knew existed. When I think of “Eucerin” I think of that big tub of super-rich lotion that I would only use…

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Moisture Set Review and Interview with an Arbonne Consultant

0

I love beauty products — especially those that promote healthy skin care. My friend, college buddy and sorority Little Sister — yes, I was in a sorority! — Minal, introduced me to Arbonne products when she became an independent consultant several years ago. Along with being a consultant, she is an occupational therapist and a mom of two very active boys. I actually tried the Arbonne products several years ago when Minal had started and it felt too heavy on my skin, however, this past spring, Minal was very excited for me to try the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Moisture Set (below),…

StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate Fights Stretch Marks and Wrinkles

2

Now that we’ve Spring Forward-ed our clocks and warm weather is on our minds (hurray!), that also means that bathing suit season is around the corner, too (womp, womp). I don’t know about you, but my two pregnancies have left me with some not-so-pretty stretch marks on my tummy and my upper thighs (put it this way:  I gained over 50 pounds with my first pregnancy and 30 pounds with my second) which makes bathing suit shopping kind of a nightmare. As you know, I’ve become a big fan of the StriVectin line of skin care products. I’ve written about…

Obsessed and Well-Tressed: The Drybar

2

Sometimes you just have to get your hair taken care of, coiffed and DONE. Just like the ladies half a century ago, they’d go to their weekly hair appointment and get their hair done and set, and that’s it. Good until your next week’s appointment. The Dry Bar, Flatiron NYC Well, The Drybar isn’t your grandmother’s hair salon. In fact, they don’t do cuts or color. Just blowouts. For only $40, you get to sit in a cool, swank setting where you relax with a glass of wine, listen to The Go-Go’s or Adele blasting on the radio, watch Breakfast…

CLOSED: Pantene Expert AgeDefy and Keratin Repair Launch and {Giveaway}

14

The theme this January continues with looking and feeling young as I head into my forties at the end of the month. So, it was quite timely that I was invited to the Momtrends Pantene Expert Launch Event. Pantene launched their Pantene Expert Collection with two lines: Pantene Expert AgeDefy Shampoo and Conditioner and Pantene Expert Keratin Repair.  The AgeDefy system helps thicken existing hair strands and therefore helps the hair act 10 years younger by restoring bounce, luster and counteracts the signs of aging hair with vitamins and caffeine (guess your hair needs coffee, too!) The Keratin Repair system…
