Make Your Own Memories With Soap & Paper Factory


When my aunt saw the solid perfume from Soap and Paper Factory, she told me that it brought back memories for her of a time when she wore a solid perfume locket that she had gotten from our Uncle Sammy for Christmas one year. She was about 17. The perfume was called Stevie B. It came out in the 70s. She said that not too long ago she found the locket and the little bit of solid perfume left in it still smelled good. She might not like me saying it but I know she is OK with her age, that was over 30 years ago! I have the Soap and Paper Factory Solid Perfume in Lavender and now every time I use it I have a memory too, of my aunt and my great uncle. It smells lovely and Lavender is one of my favorites especially in the Spring and Summer but I do wear it year round. It’s $18 but you get your monies worth. My aunt told me to try it as a cuticle moisturizer and it worked really well. www.soapandpaperfactory.com

When I have time, I am going to try to find that locket online to show my Aunt. She said she will bring it here when she visits in April. I am very happy that my experience with Soap and Paper Factory solid perfume allowed me to learn about this special family story.

This Holiday Season Treat Your Nails To a Tropical Getaway

If you can’t get to the tropics, your nails can certainly look like they have with Dermelect’s new ME Resort 2013 Collection. Using their same Peptide technology as their ME 2012 collection, these nail lacquers still provides the same incredible quality and strength to help strengthen your week brittle nails. The main ingredient in Dermelect’s Nail Lacquers is ProSina Protein Peptide. Dermelect Nail Lacquers are “Infused with ProSina, a pure protein peptide extracted from New Zealand sheep’s wool, the lacquers deliver a fast drying, high gloss shine while providing an unequaled level of strength for stubborn nails to grow longer and more resistant to chipping, peeling and splitting.”

Dermelect’s 3 new chic tropical colors for 2013 are All The Envy, a bright, metallic chartreuse, Lust Struck, a bold coral cream opaque and  Moon Kissed, a shimmery off-white color with silver accents.                           

Dermelect Nail Lacquers are anti-aging nail lacquers and as the first coat bonds to the nail, the second coat fuses the base coat creating a flexible web of color. Basically, this means the nail lacquer becomes resistant to chipping, splitting and improves brittleness (patent-pending technology). If your hands are always in the garden or in water like mine often are, Dermelect Nail Lacquer is the answer to strengthening your nails and having them look great for spring. When your nails look great, your hands look great.

Dermelect anti-aging Nail Lacquers are water and detergent resistant, helps protect against UV rays and is BBP, Toulene, Formaldehyde and cruelty free. The key to fabulous looking nails is Dermelect. Dermelect Nail Lacquers will make great stocking stuffers and can be found at http://www.dermelect.com.

Dermelect offers free shipping on orders over $50.00 and 3 complimentary samples are included with each order.

Off With Those Heads!!!!

 

My whole life I have struggled with acne problems.  I have tried every known product on the market and nothing, I mean NOTHING, helped.  By the time I was 18 I gave up trying to get rid of my acne and tried to cover it up by wearing, what felt like, 50 lbs of foundation on my face.  That just made my acne worse and I ended up looking like pancake batter.  I just lost all confidence in the way I looked and even stopped wearing makeup all together.

That was until a few weeks ago when I was introduced to “Off With Those Heads” acne serum by B-Liv skin care that my fight to cure my acne had come to an end.  When I was asked to sample B-Liv face serum I didn’t even have to think, I just yelled out “YES”!

After the first week of use I noticed a difference on my skin.  I couldn’t believe it!!!! My skin was starting to glow and I have NEVER had glowing skin before.  Here I am 3 weeks later and my skin even made it through the worst time pf the month for acne, BLEMISH FREE! 🙂 I can put my makeup on with ease and not have to worry about trying to cover any nasty marks up and it looks like my makeup was airbrushed on. I swear I feel like a runway model now whose skin is just gorgeous and flawless.

I recommend “Off With Those Heads” B-Live face serum to anybody with acne, blackheads, whiteheads etc. It is a sure fire way to say “OFF WITH THOSE HEADS”!!!

John Frieda’s Hair Setter Will Have Your Hair Rollin’

My daughter Adrienne recently told me she wanted to pick out a set of hot rollers. Wow, hot rollers, I was a teenager the last time I used hot rollers and was I surprised to see how far they have come in 30 years. There were so many different styles to choose from and my daughter knew exactly just what set of hot rollers she wanted, John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Hair Setter by Conair. The exciting news was that this particular set of hot rollers were awarded Allures Best of 2012 beauty awards.

John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Hair Setter by Conair is a unique appliance containing 5 jumbo Titanium Ceramic Flocked Rollers with a convenient storage pouch for 5 butterfly clips included. John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Hair Setter by Conair is designed to eliminate static which causes fly away frizzy hair resulting in a fabulous smooth shiny curl. These hot rollers also have a variable temperature control which allows flexible use and with only a two minute heat up time, you will have your curls ready to go in no time.

John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Hair Setter by Conair is the perfect appliance to create voluminous and soft curls. Adrienne’s hair is very long and the wide rollers give her just the right curl. They are so easy to use, she just wraps her hair around the roller, puts the clip in place and continues on until all of the rollers are in place. For tight curls, she will leave them in for at least 10 minutes. For looser curls she leaves them in only a few minutes. Adrienne likes the jumbo rollers because she can create a softer curl with volume. With a little practice, you can have the curl you want, when you want, in no time.

John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Hair Setter by Conair will make a great holiday gift  and will have your hair rollin’ in 2013!
