Heidi Klum’s Fragrance is Truly a “Surprise”


SURPRISE! I was never one for floral scented perfumes, but after trying Heidi Klum’s new fragrance SURPRISE, I was amazed.

At first, the fragrance opens up with strong floral-citrus notes, giving a hint of apricot or mandarin oranges aroma, and adding a touch of what smells like, pink rose petals. Toward the end, the fragrance mellows out on a striking scent of spicy, warm and earthy sandalwood.

I can say this fragrance has an ever so changing beautiful composition…no wonder is it called, “Surprise”. The perfume will definitely excite your senses and put you in a cheerful and playful mood!! This is one floral scent I enjoy. Consider Heidi Klume’s exceptional fragrance when choosing your Mother’s Day SURPRISE!

Head over to: for more of Heidi’s surprises!

When Thinking About Mother’s Day I Think About Roses


Recently, I was reminded of some wonderful childhood memories. L’Occitane Rose des Champs Perlized Hand Cream brought me back to my grandmothers rose garden, many years ago. I love the aroma of roses because roses  remind me of my grandmother and her beautiful rose garden. I remember that some of the roses were  for cutting and some were for smelling and the aromas were incredible.

L’Occitane Rose des Champs Perlized Hand Cream captured its small rose-bush oil pearls, and this delicate cream simply melts into your skin leaving you with the softest silkiest hands. The delicate rose scent will keep you coming back for more.  Place a L’Occitane Rose des Champs Perlized Hand Cream on your Mother’s pillow this Mother’s Day. Visit

“The Taming of the ‘Do” Hair Show in Orlando, FL

When you love something as much as I do, you will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that you learn and study everything you can about it.  I have been a licensed hairstylist now for 5 years and every day is a new learning experience and a challenge.   Many people think that a hairstylist learns everything in school. That is VERY, VERY wrong. The real education of a stylist comes with their first job behind the chair.  We learn the basics in school; it’s kind of like learning you ABC’s.  It is up to us to continue to grow and learn more.  Ask any celebrity hairstylist, or top stylist and they will tell you everything I just said.


Why am I telling you this, you are probably thinking?  On Monday, April 29, I took my skills to the next level at a hair show in Orlando FL, called The Taming of the ‘Do at the Shakespeare Theatre.  It was there that I learned the latest trends and techniques that I will use in my career.   Have you ever heard of a Texture Reformation? Maybe you remember it as a perm.  How about a texture reformation wrapped with pot scrubbers? Yes, POT SCRUBBERS.  That was the coolest thing I ever seen in my life.  Or a 4 strand braid up style? The latest cutting techniques?  With so much more to learn and share with others, I will never stop learning.

When I go to a show like that, it reminds me why I became a hairdresser.  My dream is to be a hair guru.  I love hair and even though I have only been doing this for 5 short years, I know my goal is right ahead.
