spooky and fun halloween

Decorating pumpkins each year is something the whole family looks forward to, but let’s face it, Mom or Dad does most of the work because sharp objects, such as a carving knife, are not exactly made for kids. That’s why you will fall in love with the Spritz Pumpkin Craft Kits! Now you can put the craft paint and supplies out on the table and your kids can decorate their very own pumpkin with ease! This is also a great craft activity idea for a school or birthday party to keep the kids busy. Each kit comes complete with all of the self-adhesive supplies that you need to decorate your pumpkin. The best part is the price-$3.00 for the simple kits such as a bat, witch, fox, owl or cat and $5.00 for a few of the more elaborate decorative design kits which are perfect for adults. Now, head to the pumpkin patch in search of the perfect pumpkin to use with your Spritz Pumpkin Craft Kit!

Planning the perfect party always begins with the perfect party theme. Almost everyone loves Halloween and dressings up in a costume, but some are not into the horror aspect of it and would rather decorate with bright colorful colors or happy jack-o-lanterns. The bright colored Spritz Day of the Dead Party Themed Plates, Napkins, Cups and more are fun. You also can’t beat the price! They start at $1.00 and go up to $2.50. Get yours before they are sold out and enjoy the party!

Thank goodness for cameras! They help us to preserve our memories in photographs and when it comes to Halloween and our children, family, and friends we want to capture every one of life’s moments. Everyone enjoys the current party trend of using photo props and photo backgrounds. You will not be able to resist the Spritz Photo Prop Kit. From Batman, to Frankenstein to Dracula lips, this photo prop kit will have everyone howling with laughter as you snap photos at your party. Price $5.00

Playing dress up is not just for kids when it comes to Halloween. Adults also love to go all out when putting together a creative costume, which sometimes includes face paint, and it’s not always easy to do face painting on your self. Just about any of your local mass retailers carry Temporary Face Tattoos that are quick and easy to use. Use clothing from your own closet along with the Temporary Face tattoos to create a complete costume look! For the spider face, you can wear all black or for the deer you can outfit yourself in brown. The real icing on the cake is the price, at only $3.00. Now you can get creative and join in on all of the Halloween fun without spending a lot of money.

Julee’s Halloween “DIY on the Fly” Project:

Just like there’s more than one-way to skin a cat, there is also more than one-way to carve a pumpkin, or NOT! Here’s a simple, fun and inexpensive way to re purpose your kids old crayons and create festive pumpkin decor for your home or as a table centerpiece without having to use a carving knife.

Supplies: White Pumpkin, Tacky Glue, Crayons, Blow Dryer

Step One: Take the outside wrapper off of your crayons and cut the crayons in half.

Step Two: Glue your crayons on top of your pumpkin using your tacky glue.

Step Three: When the glue is dry use your blow dryer to melt the crayons creating a

colorful pumpkin!

Baby Boom Heats Up as the Temperature Begins to Cool “MUST-HAVE” PRODUCTS TO SETTLE IN WITH BABY


As the transition from summer to fall is underway, most expectant Moms are preparing for what they know will be an exhausting, yet mesmerizing first few weeks with their newborn. What they may not know is how much company they will have as new moms. In fact, July through October have proven to be the most popular months for U.S. births in 2012 – 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1

And while being a parent may be the hardest job a Mom will ever love, there are a few preparations she can make to help allow for smooth sailing when her special delivery arrives.

Soothe delicate skin:
· A baby’s skin is his or her first line of defense and because it takes time for their skin to mature, it requires special care. Moisturization is essential in helping protect and maintain their delicate skin barrier. NEW CeraVe® Baby Moisturizing Cream moisturizes for up to 24 hours with one application. Developed with pediatric dermatologists, this “must-have” cream is formulated for babies with sensitive skin or eczema, as it contains three essentials ceramides and dimethicone to help provide intense moisturization to temporarily help relieve chafed, chapped or cracked skin.

Don’t forget about the sun:
· Protecting your baby’s skin during the scorching summer months is a well-known must.
But don’t be fooled by cool, crisp days; sun protection is necessary 365 days a year. Remember to keep infants under six months out of the sun. Once baby is slightly older, at least six months, apply NEW CeraVe® Baby Sunscreen SPF 45 to help protect their sensitive skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. This formula contains 100% naturally sourced physical sunscreen ingredients to provide broad spectrum sun protection and essential ceramides to help repair and restore the protective skin barrier.

Stock up on layer-friendly clothing and blankets:
· Little bundles of joy can quite accurately be described as “bundled” during the newborn phase, but autumn’s temperature swings can make it challenging to keep your baby comfortable. And while nothing says comfort to a baby quite like a soft blanket, many heavy versions may be too bulky to use in a stroller. Keep layer-friendly clothing and blankets on hand to offer flexibility when fall’s temperature begins to dip.

Keep naptime sacred:
· Late nights, early mornings and midnight feedings mean naptime is sacred to a new mom.
Tune out disruptive noise with a soothing sound machine to help baby fall and stay asleep.

Yes, the early stages of parenthood can be exhausting, but these simple preparations can help new parents remain cool as they transition from summer to fall.


All CeraVe® Baby products have been awarded the National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™, which maintains rigorous standards for approval. The entire CeraVe® Baby line is also hypoallergenic and fragrance-, paraben-, gluten- and phthalate-free.

· NEW! CeraVe® Baby Moisturizing Cream ($5.99) and NEW! CeraVe® Baby Sunscreen Lotion SPF 45 ($16.99) are available at CVS, Walgreens, Duane Reed, Walmart, Meijer, Babies “R” Us, Buy Buy Baby and Amazon

Actress Simona Fusco Shares her Beauty Secrets

Simona Fusco is best known for the beautiful Swedish bombshell Ulsa in “Beerfest” and  Hedda in “The Pool boys” (an American Pie franchise) IMG_7461 Simona has been a cover model for numerous publications including Maxim, Esquire, FHM and People Magazine.  Her latest acting role is on the Family Film  ” Beverly Hills Christmas” which will premiere Nov 1-7  2015 on UPTV  starring Dean Cain where she plays the bad girl ,Yvonne.

Q: How do you keep yourself looking camera ready?

Simona: I have to make sure that I stick to my beauty regimen by first taking all my makeup off every night and applying the proper products to protect the face.

Q: What type of beauty products do you use?

Simona: My beauty secrets are pretty simple: I invest in good products. Some of my faves are La Prairie, Natura Bisse and Luzern. All of these products are available at spas.

Q: Do you do anything else to keep your lovely skin looking great?

Simona: I love to indulge in facials once a month to keep my skin in shape. For my body, to keep my skin soft and moist, I love Kiehl’s Creme de Corps. I get it at a department store. It has all natural ingredients and leaves your skin looking dewy and subtle.

Q: What about your long mane of hair?

Simona: As far as my hair, I love Kerastase. My hair salon sells it but most department stores sell it as well. I love the yellow and red kind which moisturizes color treated hair.

Q: What is your best kept beauty secret?simona small

Simona: When it comes to water it’s very important to drink good water and even shower and bathe in good water free of aging and unhealthy chemicals. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and therefore absorbs everything you apply. I use a filter in my shower to get rid of any chlorine and other chemicals that not only damage your skin but also your hair and prematurely ages you. I drink plenty of water and eat healthy organic whole foods. I’ve invested in a machine called Kangen water which filters all the bad chemicals out of your drinking water system. I highly recommend it as its used in hospitals in Japan to cure life threatening diseases and skin issues. Other than that I believe in surrounding yourself with positive, supportive, driven individuals is not only good for your soul and psyche but also makes you feel good about yourself and your outlook on life which in turn makes you beautiful from the inside out. Happiness gives everyone a healthy glow!

Home Decor by “DIY on the Fly”, Julee Ireland

Julee Ireland, It's a Glam Thing on set at Indy Style

Julee Ireland, It’s a Glam Thing, Author “DIY on the Fly” on set at Indy Style

On Friday, Julee Ireland lets Indy Style viewers know “How to incorporate the Pantone color of the year Marsala into your home decor”. Here are Julee’s ideas to share just for you!

1. Office Products Storage Ottoman in Marsala

As a designer I love storage ottomans! Especially ones with multiple functions like this one from Kohl’s. This is not your ordinary storage ottoman, it also has a built in removable tray table on the reverse side of its lid! This ottoman serves multiple purposes and adds the Pantone color of the year Marsala into your home decor at the same time. What I love most about this product besides the color Marsala is that it serves as extra seating, storage, brings a nice pop of color into your room and it can be used as a service tray, tray table or side table. Price $129.99

Available online only

2. Irene Table Lamp Set in Marsala

I always say, “Lighting is the jewelry for your home” because it is! It does much more for your home decor than light your way across the room; lighting brings with it, color, vibrancy, shape and texture helping to set the tone and mood for your room. I love the simplicity of the round design elements and the rich Marsala color of Irene lamp by Safaveigh found at Wayfair. It comes as a set of two lamps 31”H x 14”Wx14”D making is a nice overall scale for side tables, nightstands or the office. It also has a maximum wattage of 100 which, allows for a nice bright light if you need it. Wayfair offers many other great products for your home or office with designer looks for less. Wayfair’s Price $159.99 for the set.

3. Tobias Throw Blanket in Marsala

No home is complete without a nice comfy blanket for movie night or a lazy day around the house. If it’s in the color Marsala it’s even better! This rich tone adds a beautiful pop of color to any room in your home. I love this simple throw blanket from Wayfair. It’s 70% Acrylic and 30% wool so it adds warmth and it’s soft to the touch at the same time. Wayfair offers many other great products for your home or office with designer looks for less. Wayfair’s Price $60.00.

4. Tempaper Removable Wall Paper in Marsala

The color that you surround yourself with in your home sets the tone for your living space. People often forget that their

walls are just as important as their furnishings. Your walls are a canvas and when they’re perfectly balanced together with your furnishings, lighting and accessories they create a masterful painting that reflects your personal style and taste. Our home is our haven. That’s why I love Tempaper removable wall paper! From a design standpoint, it’s the perfect way to revitalize and incorporate the Pantone color of the year, Marsala, into any room in your home. Tempaper is self-adhesive,
removable wallpaper that eliminates the need for paste or water. Simply remove its backing and adhere to a smooth, primed and painted surface. Just peel off to remove! It’s fun, has an amazing pattern and color selection and it’s easy to remove when you want to try something new! Add Tempaper to just one wall or your entire room. Prices range from $75 to $125

Available at Various Retailers and online
