A Pretty Shabby Chic Jewelry Organizer to hang on your wall

Shabby Chic Jewelry Display

Shabby Chic Jewelry Display Organizer

I found this idea for a jewelry display organizer online. It is easy to make yourself or you can purchase this one and others here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/513961681/shabby-chic-jewelry-keeper-jewelry?ref=related-4 . All you need is screen, a distressed (or not) wooden photo frame, hooks and for the actual wall hanging, I suggest Hang-O-Matic, All-In-One Wall Décor Hanging Tool. You can get it online at Bed Bath & Beyond, or online at Lowes.com  and at Homedepot.com . Use the Hang-O-Matic to hang it straight the first time. You won’t need to mess up the wall with extra nail holes. Even though the “mistake” holes can sometimes be hidden, it drives me crazy knowing they are there!

One of the most used phrases is – “Animals are a man’s best friend.” As much as truth as this saying holds, 15 million warm-blooded animals worldwide are tortured and beaten daily. How is it that someone could harm some of the most compassionate, kind and affectionate animals who are our “best friends?”

MANIC PANIC is out to better the lives of abused and tortured animals everywhere to help to fight against animal abuse! When you post a pic, tagging @manicpanicnyc, #ManicPanicPets AND MANIC PANIC hair color, Manic Panic will donate $1 to Pets Alive. Pets Alive is a no-kill animal rescue. Their mission is to improve the lives of companion animals everywhere by any means possible, including rescue, adoption, advocacy, collaboration, intervention and education.

Help in taking a stand to end animal cruelty! The campaign starts NOW and will be running through April 7th.

Essence Co-Founder Edward Lewis, shares & his thoughts on personal style

Essence Magazine co-founder, Edward Lewis, shares his thoughts on personal style in the February/March Issue of AARP The Magazine. Below are quotes from Edward Lewis in this month’s AARP The Magazine.

Open with flair:

“I Love wearing my cashmere overcoat thrown around my shoulders. To me, it connotes strength and the idea that you can take care of yourself. If you have good posture, give it a try. Don’t just arrive – make an entrance.”

Look sharp:

“Even in grade school in the 1940s, I wore a tie and knickers. Dressing was more formal then, but it wasn’t that formal. I wanted to stand out. I didn’t want to match someone’s negative stereotype of who I was supposed to be. Today when I’m dressing casually, I’ll wear a turtleneck with a sport coat, or a suit but no tie. I like my appearance to reflect a sense of order.”

Sole mates:

“I have more than 40 pairs of shoes: wing tips, two-tone spectators, loafers. You’d be surprised how many conversations get started over footwear.”

Good advice:

“For the cover of my book, I wore bluish pants and a blue sweater. I had picked out a contrasting jacket, but my wife, Carolyn, insisted I wear a blue sport coat instead. She was adamant. And I can see now that she was right.”

Essence, Edward Lewis

Gentle giant:

“As for shirts, I prefer pastel colors – pink, blue, soft grays – because they convey a warmer image. Yes, you may be the big boss, but with a pink shirt or pastel pocket square, you seem a little more approachable, more open to fresh ideas.”

Enya with Jamarcus Gaston, Studio62 Product spotlights

Studio62

Enya Flack – Beauty & Lifestyle Expert, It’s a Glam Thing presents “Beauty Gadgets and more.”
Esquire Grooming, The Hand Brush Hair Dryer.

The first of its kind, and Esquire Grooming is calling it a Brush Dryer-think of it as a brush with the added benefit of drying as it styles. It gives you more control, which is good if you actually care where your hair ends up. It adds volume and allows you to begin shaping and styling your hair before you put product in it-which means you can use less product-better for your hair, and that way it feels nicer when fingers are run through it.

The red glow inside is a new, innovative infrared technology. It helps prevent heat damage and retain the natural moisture in the hair. Styling products tend to perform much better on hair that has been dried and shaped first.

A quick towel dry is the first step. Turn it on and comb in the direction you ultimately want your hair to fall. It’s designed to fit into your hand a number of different ways, so hold it however you find to be most comfortable. When your hair is dry, and now in the general shape and direction you want it to be, apply styling product.

LA-Tweez Professional Illuminating Tweezers with a Diamond Dust Tip. Illuminating Tweezers crafted from the finest stainless steel, the hand filed tips are perfectly aligned and guaranteed to tweeze. The ultra-bright LED light illuminates your eyebrows and allows you to see those hard to reach hairs. Perfect for both home and on the go, the chic compact carrying case has a built-in magnifying mirror. Available in Black, Gold and Red.

Color Me Pro Edition Applicator is available to all women who want a professional, long-wearing application of liquid foundation, BB cream, CC cream, even highlighter and contouring makeup. Featuring the sonic tapping technology that Color Me is known for, the Pro Edition is turbo-charged to deliver award winning superior coverage for 8 hours. The Pro Edition also features universal sponges that can be used with any formula – wet or dry, liquid or powder – eliminating the need to switch sponges between formulas. The device taps 250 times per second mimicking a makeup artist’s hands. The tapping sets your makeup into place so it looks flawless and lasts longer in between touch ups. $68

Gerard Cosmetics Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss is available in 30 shades! There is a Built-in Light and Built-in mirror. The LED light make touch-ups effortless, anytime and anywhere. The high impact colors are long lasting and the formulas contain collagen peptide technology to hydrate and plump your lips. $24

The MakeupDrop is a Silicone Makeup Applicator designed to completely eliminate wasted makeup. While sponge applicators soak up large amounts of makeup during application, the MakeupDrop perfectly applies and blends your foundation, blush, highlighter, and concealer without absorbing one drop! Only half the amount of product is needed.
Simply apply primer, foundation, powder, cream blush or any other complexion product directly to either side of the MakeupDrop™ and blend across the face for flawless results. $20
