Cool Down This Summer with Sorbet Verbena by L’Occitane

L’Occitane’s  Sorbet Verbena Eau de Toilette  is my new favorite for summer.  It is bold but highly pleasing and eye opening.  The light mint touch gives you a fresh chill and then eases nicely into a cool verbena with a good dose of citrus to keep the fragrance thirst quenching.  The lime is very present in the top notes and its voice is strengthened later by the white musk and white woods. This new limited edition summer variation on their classic unisex verbena fragrance cools you down during the summer’s sticky high temperatures. Spritz as often as you like for a cool fresh feeling.

Did you know the verbena leaves are used to make refreshing and tangy sorbets in France.  Sorbet Verbena Eau de Toilette gets its inspiration from these traditional recipes and combines invigorating citrus aromas with an aromatic bouquet of mint, for an intensely refreshing summer fragrance.

Elegantly presented in a thick, glass spray bottled engraved  with a verbena leaf.  Just what I expected next in the verbena line from L’Occitane!

At you will find  Sorbet Verbenia Cooling Lip Gloss and Sorbet Verbena Body Ice Gel .  You will also find fabulous gift baskets,  fragrances, bath and body and skin care products. L’Occitane’s also carries a very impressive line of mens skincare, fragrance and Bath and Body products.  Cool down this summer with L’Occitane.

Go the distance with HOTPANTS™ by Zaggora !

I’m not a “workout” Fanatic, but stay physically fit with power walking, Pilates, yoga, and never taking an elevator!

I was so intrigued with HotPants™ by Zaggora when I read on their website that (quote)”Lab tests demonstrated that in 30 minutes of exercise, women lost 4 times more weight with HotPants™ than they did when doing the same exercises with standard workout clothes” that I just had to give them a try!

My hectic schedule limits my exercise time and that’s how HotPants™ have really helped me to “go the distance” and maximize my workouts as much as I can! (quote)Specially designed with Celu-lite technology fabric lining, wearing HotPants™ increases your natural body temperature hence, warming up the body areas you want to work on most (thighs, derrière, and legs)!
HotPants™ gave me that extra “boost” to ramp up my workout!

I also like to feel comfortable when I’m working out. Wearing my HotPants™, to me, feels like a pleasant firm second skin. I just glide them on and I’m ready to go! They’re really great looking too!! The Viva HotPants™ vibrant colors add that stylish “pizazz” to your appearance and brightens up your attitude as you work out.

You’ll want to take a look at their website to get even more interesting information about this light weight easy to wear “sensational workout creation”
Just go to :

Do me a favor! While on the website, take a moment to click the “How It works” tab at the top of the page and then click on the photos under RESULTS on the right side of the page …They are great!!

When I wear my HotPants™ I go through whatever routine I’m going to do. After I’m done and remove them, I’m perspiring from my waist to my knees! I have to say my skin feels very smooth, and I know I am getting a benefit from from my HotPants™. There really is a difference since I’ve started wearing them while exercising!

They have a variety of video workouts from MILD, MEDIUM, to STRONG on the website when you click on the tab at the top of the page, PERSONAL TRAINING and then on the right side of that page: GET WET WORKOUTS!

By the way….You may purchase “Your” HotPants™ right on the website!

Without a question I give HotPants™ a 5-Star rating!

Professional Style at Home

You spent all that time flat ironing your hair and now you have little bits of frizz coming out.  You keep asking yourself how can I get rid of this?  The answer is simple.  You need John Frieda’s FRIZZ-EASE 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Straightening Spray and Heat Protectant.

It is true that girls with straight hair want curly and curly haired girls want straight.  I was one of those curly girls who would spend hours flat ironing her hair to get it nice and straight. My only problem I had was the humidity in this hot Florida weather. It was causing my hair to frizz up and feel stringy.  Now I have learned to like my curls so I only use a flat iron on my bangs to give them a straight sleek look. A couple sprays of 3-Day Straight and one swipe on each section with my flat iron, my bangs are soft, smooth and frizz free.

Right after you towel dry your hair spritz 3-Day Straight all through the parts you want to flat iron and you can either let it dry naturally or you can take your hairdryer and a brush to it to help it with the straightening process.  For extremely curly hair use a brush to help aid you in the process.

So the time spent to flat iron your hair will not be wasted with John Freida’s 3 -Day Straight.  Give your hair some loving too.

Supergoop SPF 30+…Not Just Another Sunscreen

When I first tried Supergoop SPF 30+ City Sunscreen, I felt like it was going to be “just another sunscreen”. Well, it was not!!!!! Before heading out on my kayaking trip, I applied Supergoop SPF 30+ City Sunscreen to my sensitive skin. This product protected my skin from the sun exposure all day with one application. It moisturized and hydrated my skin throughout the day without feeling like a heavy, greasy cream or a thick lotion. I adored its light, serum-like texture which did not clog my pores or make me sweat. I did not have to worry about applying it to my face because it did not burn or sting when near my eyes. Supergoop SPF 30+ City Sunscreen had a pleasant, light smell. The compact bottle with its air proof dispensing system, dispensed the right amount to cover my face, and it conveniently stored in my life jacket. I was very impressed with this product!!!!

When I returned from my trip, I researched Supergoop SPF 30+ City Sunscreen. Not only does it work and feel wonderful – This product contains antioxidants E and B5 to optimize skin health and promotes nutrient absorption, and cell renewal to reduce the look of fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles. It protects skin from daily UVA and UVB sun exposure and environmental stress. Supergoop SPF 30+ City Sunscreen provides 24 hours of continuous moisture and stimulates the repair of existing UV damage to even further combat premature aging. It is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, and Triclosan. It is healthy, lightweight and comes with SPF 30– it is everything I have been searching for! It is a very innovative product and I highly recommend it !!!!!

Visit to view their entire line of “Clinically tested, Paraben, Fragrance and Oxybenzone free UV Protection” suncare products.
