CLOSED: NEW! StriVectin-SH™ Advanced Overnight Resurfacing Serum {Giveaway}

6

As you know, I’m turning 40 this month. I can’t believe I’m turning 40, my parents can’t believe I’m turning 40, and my one brother, Andrew, can’t stop reminding me that I’m turning 40. I have worked on not looking 40 for a few months by trying (key word here) to eat healthier, working out a bit more and using product that helps soon-to-be-40-year-skin look younger. Luckily, the smart people at StriVectin®, the clinical anti-aging leader, have done it again! On January 18th, they are introducing their latest product, StriVectin-SH™ Advanced Overnight Resurfacing Serum. Like their other serums, it is…

Pam + Make-up + Beauty Regimen = Whaa??? If you have known me for a while, you’ll know that putting on make-up had not been a high priority on my list of things to do in the morning. Perhaps I’ll put some on if I’m going on a date night or out for a Girls Night Out. BUT….ever since I’ve started blogging, I go to events where looking good and feeling good is a high-priority. In some cases, going to these events means you get a chance to try and take home some amazing make-up brands. Needless to say, I’ve…

It’s just the fact of going back to school! So….what do you do to help prevent your child from getting head lice? Nothing is a guarantee, but ever since my oldest one has been in Kindergarten — and that’s…

BMR Facial Toner Gives My Face a Workout

3

Earlier this week, I talked about the three ways I’m getting my pre-baby body back through a new exercise, diet and beauty regimen, which I had kept under wraps. So here’s the unveiling:  I’ll be giving my facial muscles a workout. Did you know: That after the age of 30, facial muscles naturally atrophy (that means it wastes away) which leads to lines and wrinkles? Unlike the rest of your body where muscles are attached to bone, your facial muscles are connected to your skin? So why should I care? So when your facial muscles start to waste away (ugh!),…

Cynthia Nixon Reveals her Experience with Rosacea

As a woman and as a person, it’s tough when your skin doesn’t let you shine through. It’s even tougher when the presence of your skin affects how you feel. With rosacea sufferers, its not just their skin that is affected, but their mental-well being. It’s Rosacea (ro-za-sha) Awareness Month, which means we all can help raise awareness about this skin condition that effects over 16 million Americans while only 10% of sufferers are being treated — that’s only 1.6 million people! Rosacea is a vascular condition (which means it is related to blood vessels) believed to be caused by inflammation with…

Now that I have two kids in school: nursery and elementary, I’ve started to see a pattern in the peaks and valleys of lice issues in school. Lice seems to be most prominent in September right when school starts — after everyone is back from camp, and vacations — or right after winter or spring breaks. With spring break ending for the public school set, I wanted to offer up a few hair options for lice prevention. Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Shampoo, Conditioner  and Leave In Conditioning Spray:  This shampoo, conditioner and leave-in spray uses all natural and all organic ingredients. I think…
