Make a Splash this Summer with Baby-G

baby-g

I have never been much into watches until I was introduced to CASIO’s new Baby-G Marine Resort Collection. Baby-G is a great every day wear watch in three neon colors such as aqua, lemon yellow and patriotic red, white, and blue. Baby-G is 100M water resistant making it a great poolside or beach accessory.

This 100M water resistant and shock resistant watches come equipped with everything and more you could ever want from a watch. With such features as world time in 29 zones/ 27 cities (see what other countries are up to), 4 alarms ( you will never be late again lol), a stop watch and 12/24 hour time formats you can keep track of everything just by looking at your wrist.

Each watch also comes equipped with neon illuminator backlight that highlights luminous paint so you can see it even at night. Being a hairdresser, my hands are constantly being thrashed by water, color, or other chemicals that when I wear my Baby-G watch I don’t have to worry about it not working or getting broken. Plus turquoise has always been my favorite color so I wear my watch even if it doesn’t match my outfit. ( I am a little on the peculiar side LOL)

Baby-G watches retail at $120 and are available at department stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. You can even find them online at www.baby-g.com

Bring Your Skin to Life With Dead Sea Elements

image002-3

I am fortunate to have skin that (for the most part) is free of annoying pimples and acne. Since I don’t worry too much about breakouts, I often forget or I am just to lazy to wash and cleanse my face, however my makeup needs to be washed off. Dead Sea Elements Wet Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes attracted me because it was a way to cleanse and remove my makeup in one easy step. Dead Sea Elements Wet Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes quickly and easily remove daily dirt and makeup while improving my skins texture through the thick exfoliating towelettes. After I use the wipes my skin doesn’t feel oily like with other makeup removing towelettes, in fact after I use the Dead Sea Towelettes my skin feels nourished and smooth.  Plus they don’t irritate my sensitive eyes. Another great aspect of Dead Sea Elements Wet Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes is the packaging! Thirty towelettes come sealed with a snap-open and snap-shut door, which keeps the wipes from drying out!  Dead Sea Elements Wet Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes are definitely the best makeup removing wipes I have tried I will definitely continue to use this product!

Dead Sea Elements Wet Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes are availabe for normal to oily skin types and normal to dry skin types. To find a store near you, visit http://globalbeautycare.com/where-to-buy/

Nutrition on the Go

Screen Shot 2013-07-30 at 2.29.09 PM Screen Shot 2013-07-30 at 2.29.24 PM Screen Shot 2013-07-30 at 2.29.37 PM Screen Shot 2013-07-30 at 2.29.49 PM Screen Shot 2013-07-30 at 2.30.04 PM

When we’re on the go or in a time crunch, it’s not always easy to eat well and eat right. It seems like such a strange paradox of the modern condition that we are surrounded by so many food choices yet so few of them provide our bodies with what we really need. In this article, I want to provide some easy solutions for a nourishing and healthy lifestyle. For most of us, breakfast seems to be the meal we typically forgo. And that’s fair. The last thing we want to do is be breaking out pots and pans when we could be squeezing in an extra ten minutes of sleep. An easy fix to this predicament is simply keeping your pantry full of food options rich in protein and vitamins. Great options for breakfast include instant oatmeal with sliced banana, nuts, and raisins. Drizzle your oatmeal with all natural agave nectar for a great, sumptuous taste.  Or if you really have no time to prepare anything at all, grab a banana and an energy bar. Bananas are wonderful sources of vitamins, potassium, and iron. Just having one banana can quell your hunger! Energy bars and drinks are also great for when you’re on the road or going on an outdoor adventure. Some of my favorite brands include: Muscle Milk, Luna Bars, and Kind.  Many of these brands feature all natural ingredients, which is a great way to boost your day’s nutrition. Other kinds of healthy “on the go” options include sliced fruit like bananas, apples and berries. Sprinkle with a little bit of cinnamon and sugar to add an extra kick. A simple tomato avocado salad drizzled lightly with EVOO and Balsamic Vinaigrette is a delicious and nutrition rich option as well. If you’re looking for some protein, always keep lean deli meat around. It’s clean, healthy, and light in calories and goes with pretty much anything. Wrap your favorite lean meat around your choice of fruit or vegetable (like jicama, fig, or dates) and dip into a whole grain mustard for a satisfying snack. And finally, as many of us know, hummus is a great protein substitute. Always keep some fresh hummus in the fridge along with raw vegetables or whole grain pita bread for dipping. Forgoing a meal once in a while is inevitable, but always make sure to keep healthy options around so that you aren’t just grabbing whatever is around to satiate your temporary hunger attack!

Dead Sea Elements are Sea Spa Fantastic

images-9

I have been searching for towelettes to serve many different functions in my life. The search has been going on for the past five years, however, I have found the perfect wipes which exceeded my expectations.  Dead Sea Elements towelettes are perfect for so many different reasons, the most important being they are infused with dead sea salt and natural minerals. These wipes are great for sensitive skin and my daughter has been acne free since she began her cleansing treatment with the towelettes for the past three months. The natural minerals infuse newly clean skin with elements that purify and heal once they are settled into the pores. The product is not tested on animals and is alcohol and oil free and with a simple swipe, they pick up makeup and bacteria leaving behind soothing minerals.  I also love the pop up packaging because they are easy to take anywhere and can be used on my children throughout the day.   My search has finally ended and because these towelettes are so inexpensive, I can buy several packages to bring everywhere.

For this design the nail polish that I used was not a name brand. Although it was really easy to achieve. Just apply an orange nail polish and let it dry. Then using a black nail art polish make the design of the wings. Then you can use a dotting tool and dip it in white nail polish and complete the design. Finally apply a top coat and you’re done! This was not very difficult for me and I think it’s really cute for the summer!

Be on your way to Gorgeous Skin with BIOELEMENTS

logo-2

Bioelements, it sounds very scientific but actually, Bioelements is a professional skincare line, some of which I have been using this past month and I am really quite pleased with the results. Bioelements has a unique program where, at their website, http://www.bioelements.com/find-your-skin-type-pages-58.php you are able to choose your own products based on your skin type. Bioelements covers all skin types so you will be sure to finds products especially designed for your skin. If you are not sure what your skin type is, no need to worry, Bioelements explains each skin type thoroughly.

My particular skintype is combination skin and after reviewing the products offered, I chose the following: Flash Foam Cleanser, Power Peptide Revitalizing Toner, Advanced VitaMineral C Complex, Multi-Task Eye Cream, Sleepwear and RayDefense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen. It is not necessary to choose every product that is designed for your skin type but the products that were chosen for my skin type worked very well together. I would reccommend using this skincare line for at least one month because as with most skin care products, you usually won’t see results overnight. I did see  results within 2 days with a few Bioelements products, and I saw amazing results using Bioelements for 4 weeks. I suggest you give Bioelements at least 4 weeks to improve your skin and you will look and feel wonderful. All of Bioelements products contain NO artificial colorants, synthetic fragrance, animal testing and ONLY contains natural botanicals.

FlashFoam-mainPowerPep-main

Bioelements Flash Foam Cleanser  (shown above left) is probablly the richest, softest, silkest cleanser I have ever used. This “Advanced Enzyme Cleanser that Gently exfoliates Skin” certainly doesn’t feel like the typical exfoliater that is often abrasive. The combination of vitiman B-5, green tea and fruit enzymes gently exfoliate your skin getting rid of make-up and other impurities. You won’t feel any abrasive material but I assure you the cleansing is thorough. I use 1 or 2 pumps of Flash Foam Cleanser morning and night and my skin definitely feels soft and refreshed after each cleansing.

I don’t have much experience with toners but one of my daughters swears by them so on her advice, I decided to give Power Peptide a try. Power Peptide is a “Revitalizing Tonic for Younger looking Skin”,  (Shown Right) is so easy to use and you apply it right after cleansing, twice a day if you want. With your eyes closed of course, simply spritz on your face and neck. Power Peptide is formulated to boost skin moisture, brighten and refine skin tone for youthful radiant skin. The secret behind the toner is that by saturating your skin with moisture, the anti aging peptides contained in the toner are more easily absorbed into your skin. I liked how my skin felt after using the toner and it has now become part of my skincare routine.

I was excited about using Bioelements Multi-Task Eye Creme  (shown above left) I use it around my eyes each morning, mainly because I often have puffiness and dark circles not to mention fine lines. Multi-Task Eye Creme contains antioxidant brighteners, firming liptic acid and de-puffing cucumbers to name a few of the important elements. I didn’t notice any changes in my eye area right away but soon after I was using the Multi-Task Eye Creme I was in my car, stopped at a light and happened to glance in the rear view mirror and noticed my morning puffiness was gone and the dark circles looked much better and I was thrilled. I actually learned the proper way to apply eye creme at Bioelements website www.bioelements.com/multi-task-eye-creme-products

RayDefense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen with Hydrating moisturizer (Shown above right) is the perfect moisturizer simply because it is a sunscreen as well. RayDefense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen with Hydrating moisturizer was also named the ‘Best Sunscreen for Face’ by StyleBakery.com. This is a great Sunscreen Hydrating moisturizer especially if you spend much time outdoors, as I often do. RayDefense will decrease your chances of skin cancer and early signs of aging caused by the sun and other harsh outdoor elements. RayDefense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen is Dermatologist and clinically tested to be non-irritating, non-allergenic and non-sensitizing, ideal for sensitive skin

  • Bioelements_VitaMineral_Power_PenSlpwr-main

Included in my Bioelements routine are two creams that I apply at night, Advanced VitaMineral C Complex (above left) and Sleepwear (above right). Advanced VitaMineral C Complex is one of my favorites. It basicallly contains Acerola cherries which contain 32 times more vitimin C than oranges, combined with special minerals and essential oils. Advanced VitaMineral C Complex is guaranteed to repair damaged skin. Since using this C Complex, I have noticed my skin smoother, brighter and not as blotchy in the morning, which is why I like using it at night.

Finally, I top off my night with Sleepwear, which acts as my nighttime moisturizer. It is the perfect moisturizer, because my skin is not left with a heavy greasy feeling when I go to bed but rather a soft smooth feel. Sleepwear is formulated for dry to combination skin and replenishes your skin while you sleep so when you wake, your skin is rested, not dried and worn.

Using Bioelements consistantly has brought a level of brightness and energy to my skin and I definitely see a difference when I see myself in the mirror. You don’t have to use every product in the Bioelements Skin Care Line, but you should definitely select products to deal with the problem areas. As I said earlier, by using Bioelements dilligently, you will see positive results.

My interview with Emmy nominated celebrity makeup artist and creator of Senna Cosmetics, Eugenia Weston !

This year while covering The MAKEUP SHOW-Chicago for It’s A Glam Thing, I not only had the pleasure of meeting the Emmy nominated celebrity makeup artist and founder of Senna Cosmetics, Eugenia Weston, but had an opportunity to have Ms.Weston do a makeover on me.

Meet Eugenia Weston:

Eugenia Weston

Eugenia Weston

Eugenia is one of the most gracious, soft spoken, congenial women I’ve met, and by the time I left the Senna booth, looking better than I have in ages, Eugenia had agreed to do an interview with me. As you can imagine, I was ecstatic the rest of the day! This was a dream come true!

Eugenia Weston is the consummate makeup artist who is not only able to visualize an idea for a makeup product, have the creativity to develop that product, but ultimately create the finished product that is able to be used and enjoyed by all!

Learn more about Eugenia, as with great pleasure I present…
My interview with Eugenia Weston…

VICKI:
Eugenia, what inspired you to follow an artistic career in makeup artistry and product development?   

EUGENIA:
Do you believe in destiny? I knew that I was literally born to do makeup. My inspirations have always come from fashion, cinema, theatre, photography and art. I’ve always been intrigued with faces.

I developed products out of need. Before Senna, I started doing freelance makeup and the products and colors available were very limited. I had a definite vision of beauty and couldn’t find the right cosmetics to fulfill my vision. I would mix and blend colors from many established store brands to create the shades that defined what is still my signature style today, clean and beautiful makeup. My clients loved the natural looks I created with these colors and requested them. I explained that I would have to mix them up, and they said, “I want them.”. So I began to create colors and products in my kitchen for my customers.

VICKI:
That certainly was destiny, Eugenia! At what point did you experience that “ah-ha” feeling and know that you and your career were moving in the direction you had hoped for?

EUGENIA:
My career and brand has evolved over the years from my passion for making up faces. I knew that I would never do anything else in my life. Creating Senna Cosmetics was my “ah-ha” moment!

VICKI:
Your list of celebrity clients in both film and television is quite remarkable. Was there a memorable “moment” while working with one these “personalities” that you’d like to share with us?

EUGENIA:
Working with Bette Midler on the film Down and Out in Beverly Hills (Disney, 1986) enabled me to learn more about the film industry. I had only done print and stage work prior. Bette wanted me to be her makeup artist on all of her films. She arranged for me to be trained by legendary film makeup men, as I was not familiar with this genre. I am forever grateful.

VICKI:
Your Face Sculpting Kit has honestly changed my whole look! It’s different than anything I’ve ever experienced, and has cut my makeup time in half. Why does it have such a positive impact on a person’s face?

EUGENIA:
Balance and proportion creates beauty. Highlighting and shading are essential in achieving a more perfect facial structure. There’s nothing like Senna’s Face Sculpting Kit on the market. The gray brown color imitates real shadows so they look natural on film, TV and real life. The highlighters enhance features. I learned this technique of face contouring when being mentored by the legendary film makeup artists Bob Mills and Bob Schiffer. The formula never streaks, blends easily and melds into the skin.

VICKI:
It’s really an outstanding product! You also are very well known for your remarkable “Form A Brow Kit®” !  Why do most of us have such frustrations with our eyebrows, and what was your motivation to create this kit?

Senna's Form-A-Brow Kit created by Eugenia Weston

EUGENIA:
Most women are frustrated with their brows because they’re not artists and can’t figure out the what, where and how. Working with so many women in my makeup and brow studios, I come up with solutions to address these issues and brows were a big one. I created Form-A-Brow® Stencil Kit out of a need. I would hand cut every stencil myself for each client, over 600! It became such a hit we put them into production in the early 1990’s and a new beauty category was born.

VICKI:
What are some of your thoughts regarding makeup application that women need to be aware of as they go through the different stages and ages in their lifetime?

EUGENIA:
There are so many great products on the market today, so education is vital. I suggest going to an expert that is knowledgeable and understands these different stages. Professional makeup artists need to key into the life styles of their client in order to make the proper suggestions.
Must have tips:
Use eyeliner in the upper water line to make lashes look fuller. Use anti-aging and moisturizing facial serums plus a SPF30 daily to nourish and protect skin. Use a foundation primer under makeup to smooth skin. Because brows fade with age, fill in with powder color, pencils or tinted brow gels to create definition.

VICKI:
Please tell us about your involvement in the American Cancer Society’s “Look good, Feel Better” program.

EUGENIA: 
Makeup is a very healing experience. The American Cancer Society’s ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ program caught my attention because I love helping women look better which makes them feel better. I wanted to volunteer and give back with one on one pampering and uplift their spirits since they are going through such a traumatic period in their lives. Wearing makeup really helps them face the world in a normal manner. Most of the women never had a makeup lesson. They always leave so happy.

VICKI:
Would you share some hints for summer looks that our readers will enjoy from your new Summer 2013 Sunglow Collection?

EUGENIA:
Complexion is made soft, dewy and translucent with our BB Cream, Barley Base Sheer Mineral Makeup SPF20. It’s an amazing 4-in-1 makeup and skincare product that’s essential for the summer season. Add warmth and glow by dusting Brilliant Bronze over the face using our luxurious Powder Point 33 Brush. This ethereal lightweight and radiant baked bronzer gives a natural illumination to the entire face. It also contains anti-aging pearl powder that helps to hydrate and nourish the skin.

Eyes pop with emerald green and sparkling bronzes. I like incorporating the shades from the Brilliant Bronze into the eye makeup to add warmth. Eyeliner is essential in makeup for the season. Our new Ultra Last Eyeliner pencil is a must have to beat the heat because it is smudge proof and waterproof. I always line inside the upper water line as it creates clarity to the eye and makes lashes look fuller.

Lips: A slash of bold orange coral color looks great on tanned and bronzed skin. To add dimension, dab Midas Cream Lipstick, a golden glow, over the bold lip colors.

VICKI:
Eugenia, I can’t thank you enough for taking time from you busy schedule to share all of this fabulous information with us! Your dedicated and ongoing work in the cosmetic and skin care industry with your wonderful SENNA products is simply incredible!

Here is a special treat that Eugenia has made possible for me to share with all of you. Senna’s beautiful Summer 2013 Sunglow Collection is absolutely gorgeous. If you want to look your best and have the training from a celebrity makeup artist who not only develops the looks and creates the products, I’m so happy to invite you to view the two looks from Eugenia Weston’s SENNA 2013 Summer Sunglow Collection in the video below and learn how apply them!

Healing From the Inside Out – The Three Most Incredible Healing All-Natural Cremes from BA6 Botanicals

Ba6_tagHOR_500x102_thumb

“You are what you eat,”  –  that’s what they say, right? Have you ever thought about what you put on your skin as being ‘eaten’ or ‘consumed’ by your body – this is an interesting thing to consider when picking out skin products, as I found out this week from Christine Laureano, founder of BA6 Skin care. She has a unique set of completely natural, extremely effective products that you can buy directly from her website – which not only contain very few chemicals but also work very effectively.

0-33

It’s summer so I am going cowgirl on ya!

“BA6 started when my kids were little. I was giving them a bath, pulled out the baby lotion, looked at the ingredients, and said – oh my god. I started doing research into the lotion and said – oh my god this is not good for my baby’s skin!  I couldn’t believe it. So I went to Whole Foods and started researching the ingredients of all sorts of products, and came up with my first product which I made at home – Camomile and Lavender All over body lotion. This is a nice, light everyday moisturizer.”

Once Christine realized that she could make the moisturizer and sell it a relatively inexpensive price point, she started to create a business. The lotion was great and not only did it help the babies’ skin but the lavender smell would calm them. “Sweet almond oil and jojoba are the main oils. Almonds are very nutritious. Jojoba are the oils that are closest to our natural skin oil. My mission was all about looking at the deeper oils. Nutritious, rich and really good for your skin,” she said.

In reality, Christine points out, your skin really is absorbing 60% of what goes on it. She is a certified essential oil therapist as well as a Reiki Master, Reiki Master Healer, and a Certified Chocolatier too! (Meaning that she makes really great chocolate lavender truffles!). Next, Christine created the Cocoa Shea Body Lotion. Now, if you follow my blog at all you know that I suffer from horribly dry scaly skin and I am always reviewing products in light of how they will hurt or help my crazy alligator scales. The Cocoa Shea Body Lotion contains cocoa butter and shea butter – the makeup of both of those are so full of vitamins and things that are so good for your skin. According to Christine, this product is for people who have severely dry skin – who have been in the sun, who need something heavy duty. So, like, for people like me.

Not only is this product full of antioxidants – but it is deeply moisturizing. It actually helps to stimulate your collagen under your skin. I can’t believe how good my skin feels. It doesn’t feel tight, it’s really smooth, I cannot believe that my skin is no longer scaly. According to Christine, this product works because it has such healing properties – with antioxidants really pouring the nutrients into the skin. Just putting some waxy thing on your skin from Rite AID or something like that – it isn’t going to do the deep healing work into your skin. These products have healing properties, and her attitude is that your skin consumes them.

And then came the Booby Balm!  Not long after creating the Ba6 Cocoa Shea lotion, Christine had a lot of people saying they had eczema, and asking for help. She started to develop a dense concentrated cream based on a rich thick cream base. As part of her healing work Christine had started working with the patients at Southampton Hospital in the Breast Health Center, and one day, a nurse asked her to look at one of the radiation patient’s skin. “I looked at the irritiated skin. It was damaged, burned, trying desperately to heal,” she said. Booby Balm was born. Christine added in Halocrstytom and German Camomoile Oil, Avocado, Shea Butter, Lavender Essential Oil, and more.

Booby Balm is strictly for Burns or Super Dry Skin. This creme is highly specialized and concentrated, and well worth the slightly added cost.  “Booby Balm is now in the hospital’s Pink Ribbon bags – which all breast cancer patients receive at Southampton Hospital in Long Island and many other healthcare facilities,” she said.

Every product manufactured by BA6 has been the result of an investigation into the root cause of what’s going on with the skin, what the skin system is doing, how your body is going to react, how the skin will behave….and what will your skin needs at its core in order to begin to truly heal. I am a believe in BA6!
