Head Back to School with a DIVINE Lip Shine

 

 

divine_lip_shine

It is not a big secret, I am a lipstick and Lip gloss junkie. So much so that I have them everywhere you can think of. In my car, coat pockets, handbags, desk drawers, you name it and most likley I’ll have a lip product there. Of course, I only use certain products and I found another amazing one called Divine Lip Shine by Plain Jane Beauty. My daughter Adrienne confirmed it when she chose “sweet coral” and loved the look of it on her lips. Her immediate reaction was that it wasn’t sticky, didn’t taste funny (they are unscented), and loved how her lips felt after applying it. Best yet, it lasted quite a while on her lips, indeed it does!

Don’t let the dark colors fool you. Divine Lip Shine by Plain Jane Beauty are sheer so the colors appear much lighter on your lips than in the tube and provide your lip with the shine they deserve. These colors are sheer enough that you can wear them alone or over your favorite lipstick.

 Divine Lip Shines are available in 5 devine colors: Sweet Coral, Crystal Shimmer, Sassy Shine, Plum Chic and Copper Sunset plainjanebeauty.net 

The best feature about Divine Lip Shine is that they are formulated with PURE and NATURAL ingredients:

Castor Oil – Contain triglycerides  helping lips restore their natural moisture balance preventing dryness and its humectant properties help lips feel silky and smooth.
Shea Butter Oil – soothes irritated and chapped lips and enhances cell regeneration and capillary circulation.
Carrot Oil – Protects the skin from UV damage, as it is naturally high in photoprotective carotenoids, such as beta carotene, but also vitamin E and other antioxidants
Apricot Kernel Oil – Nourishes the lips because of its high content of A, B & E vitamins. As you know, Vitamin E is one of the most powerful natural antioxidants and helps to combat free radicals.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil – Offers a high vitamin E content which forms a moisture barrier and assists the skin with preventing moisture loss.

Another great feature about Divine Lip Shine is that they are formulated WITHOUT:

petroleum, parabens, mineral oil, dimethicone, phthalates, glycol, lanolin, synthetic dyes or FD&C colors, or acrylates or any other toxic ingredient normally found in lip glosses. They are the perfect back to school accessory or for anytime you want your lips to look and feel DIVINE!

A Beginner's Guide to the Glycemic Index

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjyyA5PhZ9M&list=UUI3OMSgbfaDyd1bt_1vqxVQ[/youtube]

The Glycemic Index:

As many of you may know there is a lot of information out there about the Glycemic Index and how it affects blood sugar levels, diabetes, and overall health. During the course of my research, I had the opportunity to speak to expert nutritionist, Karen Cohen, about the GI Index and the importance of eating small meals throughout the day. Maintaining a healthy diet is not only an effective way to maintain your body weight, but it also has positive effects on sleep, critical thinking, and having energy throughout the day. With so much conflicting information out there, eating healthy can sometimes feel quite overwhelming. Essentially, we want to avoid foods that easily convert to sugar. Any simple carbohydrate like donuts, white bread, and desserts generally have a high glycemic index while insoluble fibers and complex carbs generally have a low to mid level glycemic index. I asked Karen to discriminate between good and bad carbohydrates because they are not all created equal! Grains such as quinoa and brown rice slow down the glycemic spike and if you do eat just white rice, make sure to pair it with something high in protein like beans. It is also important that to maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle, you eat every four hours to prevent your blood sugar level from going down because then you overeat. Whether it’s snacking on nuts, fruit, or a healthy complex grain, always make sure to keep healthy options around the house in between meals.

Healthy snack options:

Whole grain toast with almond butter

Roasted, unsalted cashews, almonds, walnuts, brazil nuts

Fruits with low sugar levels like strawberries, blueberries, plums, and tomatoes

Half an avocado with fresh lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil and salt

Cottage cheese or ricotta

Egg whites

Suave Moroccan is Rockin’

unnamed-68

The new Suave Moroccan Infusion Lotion is now one of my favorite lotions. It is infused with Moroccan oil which leaves my skin silky smooth, without leaving a greasy film at all. I put it on my legs before school everyday and the great scent lasts until I get home. It’s clinically proven to moisturize as well as Moroccan oil, and it does! It can be found at almost any drugstore for around $5 . It’s totally worth it if you’re looking for a moisturizing lotion with a great scent!

What Colors are in your Lacquer Cabinet?

images

If you are a nail polish lover, there are some amazing nail polish collections from Nailtini called The Lacquer Cabinet. The idea behind The Lacquer Cabinet is that each collection you buy (there are 12) includes “a season-perfect shade, a never-before-seen particle combination and a totally transformative topper that gives a mesmerizing new look to any polish it’s layered over.”  The Lacquer Cabinet can be purchased through a monthly subscription or you can order the collection of your choice. Each collection is also represented by a guest mixologist bringing  their own nail polishes colors and application ideas right to your doorstep.IMG_5253

The Lacquer Cabinet™ recently introduced the Melissa Foss for Nailtini® Collection (shown above) which was the collection we experimented with. It was created by guest mixologist, animal lover*** and beauty editor Melissa Foss. Foss “knows beauty, identifying and setting the hottest trends in cosmetics and nails for everyone from makeup junkies to DIYers for readers of Harper’s Bazaar and Natural Health.”  All the polishes in the The Lacquer Cabinet collection are vegan and are easy to apply and dry hard as a rock, I can attest to that.

As you can see from the photo above, we experimented with the colors in the collection and by mixing “Adopt-apertif”  (green) and Purr-fect Fizz (white) and we created our own signature shade of a light shimmery seafoam green. We can’t wait to see what we dream up with the shade Hair of the Dog (orange).

Each monthly collection comes with a description card which provides details of the enclosed nail colors and offers a  “Tip Jar”  offering mixing ideas. You can wear the array of Nailtini polishes any way you want.  Apply to your nails straight from the bottle, mix a few of your favorite colors in the empty mini bottles that come in each monthly Lacquer Cabinet box or try layering different colors, the ideas are endless.

View the entire Lacquer Cabinet collection at , visit www.tinibeauty You can start your monthly nail subscription today, simply choose a collection to start and before you know it you will be receiving Lacquer Cabinet on a monthly basis, it’s just to hard to resist.

***A portion of all proceeds from the Melissa Foss for Nailtini collection benefit Animal Haven…which also inspired the names. Nail polish and giving to charity in one shot? Now that deserves a toast…
