Feel Morning Fresh with Shower to Shower

Shower to Shower

It has been a long time since I have even thought about “bath powder” as they used to call it.  “Shower to Shower” is a new name for a product that used to be found in just about every woman’s bathroom.  Big differences now accompany this product though as it used to be quite messy and I even remember the gift powders often had a glove or large puff included for applying.  Today’s version offered by Johnson & Johnson is so much easier to apply and NO MESS!  The container is built so that after turning the top, you can squeeze and just a small dusting escapes wherever you direct it. If you want a little more, it is as simple as giving it another little squeeze.  Result: The powder goes where you directed it and not everywhere that you don’t want it.  Great container Johnson & Johnson!  The fragrance I tried was “Morning Fresh”.  “Morning Fresh” has a soft, light lavender fragrance that is just enough.  I found it to be long lasting throughout the day with just a hint of fragrance present.  “Shower to Shower” is a great everyday product for women on the go, but I also believe it would make a wonderful gift for those special ladies in your life that you just want to remember in some small special way.  They will love it and love you for introducing them to a great product!

Find more information on Shower to Shower at http://www.showertoshower.com/. Shower to Shower can be found in most drug stores nationwide.

Sharply Shredded: Fashion on a Mission

On one of my recent It’s a Glam Thing beauty segments for Charlotte Today, I had the chance to meet a young lady who has found a way to combine two of her passions: fashion design and helping her community. Sharply Shredded is a brand new and totally cool clothing line founded by Charlotte designer Alexandra Evans. What makes her line unique is that every piece is hand shredded and woven into different designs, ensuring that no two are ever the same. So if you have one of her shirts, rest assured that you’ll never run into someone else wearing the same thing.  Here’s mine!:

SharplyShredded

But another aspect of this company that makes it even more unique is its commitment to supporting and  making a difference in the community. Working closely with local homeless shelters and ministries to help provide job opportunities for those down on their luck, Sharply Shredded hires less fortunate and displaced men and women to help produce their merchandise.  So in turn, the sales of these items directly benefit the employees by enabling them to provide for their families.  Sounds great to me:)

I look forward to finding new inspiration and taking artistic cues from the brand throughout this partnership.”

Bella Pilar’s love of fashion combined with an imaginative aesthetic makes her the go-to girl for the fashionista and girl-next-door alike, and her illustrations for Joico will bring this to life to consumers.

“Karma Cleanse” before Valentine’s Day with CIRCA Jewels!

full-img

In an effort to “karma cleanse” before Valentine’s Day – take the opportunity to break up with your jewelry.  Although a break up may be final, there are probably reminders of the relationship in terms of jewelry.  CIRCA, the leading international buyer of jewelry, diamonds and watches experts, believe that if you have not worn a piece in the past year, you probably won’t wear it again.  So instead of hiding old gifts at the bottom of your jewelry box, get cash and buy yourself something you would actually wear, go on a vacation or save a little.  According to CIRCA, almost all fine jewelry and watches have resale value – anything from a simple gold watch or half-carat diamond to an entire estate of rare jewels.
