Botox® Cosmetic, Fashion Designer Lela Rose and PEOPLE magazine set out to find “Women Just Like You”! Read Lela’s commentary and get the scoop about this exciting contest!

I knew this article would be fun, informative, and most of all gratifying because the contest was searching to find real women who were, “not only beautiful on the outside, but the inside, too.” (Quote from Style News- Style Watch You may read the whole article here: www.

Being involved in the entertainment field for over 30 years it became very easy for me to determine and really appreciate the “true beauties”! It was their inner and outer balance, along with whatever it was they were doing that would light up their lives and define their “unique” beautiful appearance! In my opinion, the five winners of the “Women Just Like You” contest are all beauties ~ inside & out!

Fashion Designer Lela Rose was kind enough to share some commentary about this venture, and I know you’ll find it quite enlightening… so let the journey begin.

Fashion Designer ~ Lela Rose

Comments from Lela Rose on Women Just Like You…

Question : Tell us about the “Women Just Like You” contest and why you decided to partner with BOTOX Cosmetic on this campaign.

LELA: My work as a fashion designer celebrates being a woman through design that is feminine and approachable. While looking and feeling your best is important, I also believe women should be celebrated for their success. The “Women Just Like You” campaign – sponsored by BOTOX Cosmetic in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the product and the millions of women who have been treated with BOTOX Cosmetic over the past decade – is all about celebrating other women who put their best face forward every day at work, at home and in their community.

I’m a proud supporter of BOTOX Cosmetic and the work the brand does to celebrate the millions of women who have received real, noticeable, predictable results through treatment with the product. Women should talk to a doctor to see if the treatment is right for them. The BOTOX Cosmetic website can help them find a doctor. .

Question : Can you tell us more about the contest?

LELA: I joined with BOTOX Cosmetic and PEOPLE magazine in search of five women who are “Women Just Like You”. These five women were selected from more than 2,200 entries for the campaign and were flown to New York to receive the “star treatment” from me and participate in a photo shoot with celebrity photographer Dorian Caster . Their photos and stories appeared in a recent People Magazine advertorial spread.

Question: I’m sure all of these women have amazing stories. Can you tell us a bit more about them?

LELA : I am so inspired by all of these women and it was a pleasure to work with each of them during the photo shoot. They all deserve to be recognized for their unique accomplishments. More about the winners of the Women Just Like You contest:
Aimee Miller of Dallas, TX is a local fashion designer and business owner. Aimee was inspired by the needs of her community to create a line of denim jeans for the everyday woman.

Sabrina Sexton from Atlanta, GA is a local photographer, baker, and caregiver. By day she works at the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, and has also turned her passion for photography into a way of giving back. In her spare time, Sabrina uses her love of baking to raise money for charity and her local relay for life.

Valerie Wildman of Los Angeles, CA is a local community activist and education consultant for L.A. schools. While she has been an actress for most of her life, her true passion is helping kids in Los Angeles.

Titi Jonasson from Oceanside, CA is a local fitness enthusiast and caregiver. Titi focuses on the health of herself and her family so she can take care of her husband who suffers from MS and her daughter, and not get caregiver burnout.

Terry Richardson from Seattle, WA is a local cancer charity founder. She created the Innovator’s Network as part of the Hutchinson Cancer Center to help find a cure to cancer, and has already raised over one million dollars for the center and that is just the beginning.

Thank you Lela, for sharing all this wonderful information about Botox Cosmetic, the “Women Just Like You” contest, and the lovely women who won the contest. It was very inspiring!

2013 Introduces a skincare first…RESVOLOGY


I want you to be the first to know that an incredible skincare line from Resvology Gene Smart Skincare, is being introduced in January, 2013.  This is a remarkable skincare line formulated with the patented 4-AR Molecule™.

What is the 4-AR Molecule™?  “The 4-AR Molecule™ is the only molecule scientifically proven to help prevent the visible signs of aging by activating over 85 key skin-related genes. In clinical trials, 4-AR Molecule™ has been proven to help fuel gene activity which helps keep skin looking firm, lifted, youthful and radiant—a skincare first.”

Resvology Gene Smart Skincare actually promotes healthy gene activity to help fight the signs of aging. I am starting to see for myself the amazing benefits of Resvology Age Corrective Eye Complex and Resvology Age Corrective Face Complex/Wrinkle Treatment.

I have been enjoying the benefits of Resvology’s Age Corrective Eye Complex. This is a is a very light, non greasy eye cream that I massage around my eye area morning and night after cleansing. It absorbs very quickly and is suitable for all skin types. With the combination of botanical extracts and replenishing hydrators, this amazing eye cream will help reduce dark circles and puffiness around my eyes while working to fight signs of aging.

Resvology Age Corrective Face Complex/Wrinkle Treatment is also remarkable. This is a very lightly scented cream that spreads evenly and is non greasy. You will notice your skin feeling soft and smooth in no time. Resvology Age Correctie Wrinkle Treatment immediately refines, rejuvinates and smoothes your skin, you will be amazed with the results.

I think we should all start the New year off with fabulous looking skin, and this new year, Resvology is allowing this to happen.

Be assured that Resvology is bringing the most advanced anti-aging, skin science technology to women everywhere.

LUMENE is my new Cocktail for 2013


Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail is a Super Serum in my opinion. If you have dry skin, look no further. This is a comfort Radiance Cocktail. Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail smells sweet and is full of Jojoba and avocado oils.  Use in the a.m and p.m. before you apply your day/night cream. I have never heard of Arctic cloudberry, it’s a super power active ingredient from the arctic and will brighten your skin, improve moisture balance and protect against harmful effects of the environment. You truly have to experience the feel of this on your skin, it feels as if you have been wrapped in velvet.  I love that it also has Vitamin C and is paraben free.

To learn more about the power of arctic healing, Lumene’s philosophy and to view their other outstanding skincare products, visit

Great Coverage With The Foundation I Love

A great foundation is very important, especially if your skin is not perfect to begin with since  it is possible to have some major flaws and still be able to cover them to make your skin look flawless. If you need a base that provides good coverage, ESTEE LAUDER has a line of foundation that does the trick.  One of my favorites in their line is Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup. I like it because I myself need to cover red patches and other skin flaws and find that it works well for this need.  Additionally, it is really great for evening makeup as well.

It’s Time for a Fresh Start with Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C


The New Year is a time to start fresh, make changes and reach new goals for the upcoming year.  Many people are opposed to making New Year resolutions due to the many failed attempts over the years.  My skin has felt like a failed attempt in trying to make it look better with many disappointing products over the last several years.  I had almost given up until I tried Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C, which uses power Vitamin C and antioxidants to repair skin and reduce the signs of aging.  My skin had completely lost its youthful glow and smooth clear surface.  I attributed the decline in my skin and signs of aging due to motherhood, bad skincare products, and lack of time to spend on a beauty regime.  My friend introduced me to Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C and asked me to try it for thirty days.  The few big dark spots I had tried to cover up with expensive make-up had vanished.  The Serum C helps lighten and brighten the skin tone, and helps accelerate the healing of the skin.  The many skin problems I had were corrected with one product, lessening the time and expense required for great skin.  I was excited to have my youthful glow back especially for the holidays.  There is only one resolution I will keep this New Year, to continue with Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C, the beauty regime which takes approximately thirty seconds to apply and corrects a multitude of skin problems.

You can find  Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C and othe abulous anit-aging skincaare products at

Don’t Get Mad, Get Madcapz

I have not always been a fan of hats, but the woman sitting next to me is.  Lisa loves hats!  Straw hats, floppy hats, beanie hats, rain hats, baseball caps and more  Right now, she is loving a new line of feminine baseball caps (her favorite) designed for women called Madcapz. 

President and founder of Madcapz, Carrie Bell, created Madcapz when she battled Grave’s Disease. She loved the fit and feel of baseball caps but all she could find were covered in sports, and corporate logos.

Madcapz come in a variety of colorful prints to fit each personality.  Retailing for only $20.00 (visors only $19.00) Madcapz are available in boutiques, and retailers across the country.  Madcapz is also available online at:

So stop wearing your husband or boyfriends drab, masculine baseball caps and get Madcapz.  The fun feminine way to experience the feel of a baseball cap without the baseball logo.

My Coffee Addiction is now an Eight O’Clock Coffee Addiction


This Christmas, my parents bought me my very first Keurig Machine. The K-Cups that they bought for me were EIGHT Clock Coffee Brand. I had never heard of that brand before. After trying my new Keurig machine and Eight O’Clock K-Cups, my coffee addiction has turned into an Eight O’Clock Coffee addiction.  It is the perfect blend of coffee, not too bland, not too bitter…it’s just right.  And for those of you who don’t use Keurig coffee makers, don’t worry, you can purchase it in bags of coffee grinds as well.  Any way you decide to use it, I promise it won’t disappoint you.

I also can’t wait to try the flavored Eight O’Clock Coffee! Yum! One of them is Eight O’ Clock Coffee’s new limited edition Chocolate Mint Coffee. I have heard this new Chocolate Mint coffee is a decadent blend of 100% Arabica coffee with a taste of peppermint with a smooth dark chocolate note. It will be available in select stores and online nationally at in 11oz bags.

I want to share with you one of the “brew-it-yourself” coffee recipes that Eight O’Clock Coffee created that can be made with a traditional coffee maker or with a Keurig® brewer, turning coffee-for-one into coffee-for-fun!

Marshmallow Candy Bar!

Start by putting one Tbsp. of mini marshmallows and one snack sized chocolate/caramel-type candy bar in the bottom of a mug. Then, pour your Eight O’Clock Coffee over the candies. If you’re using a Keurig® brewer, simply brew the coffee into the candy-filled mug. Stir until the candy melts, and you’re done! Test before adding extra milk or sugar – it’s so delicious you may not want to add anything else!

“Brew-it-Yourself” holiday coffee recipes include: Caramel Almond Coffee, Caramel Apple, Chili Chocolate, Coconut Coffee, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, Marshmallow Candy Bar, Peppermint Perfection, White Chocolate
