Aveeno Dry Shampoo is a Real Root Booster


I have the type of hair that gets oily very quickly. I can’t put a lot of product in my hair so I have to rely on shampoos and conditioners to keep my hair frizz-free.  Because of this, I have tried many different types of dry shampoo.  After about a year of experimenting, I’ve finally found one that I’m going to stick with, Aveeno’s “Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo.”  I spray it on the roots of my hair the day after I blow dry and straighten my hair and it instantly gives my hair a cleaner, dryer look.  It also gives my roots a little bit of a boost which adds volume to my hair.  The Active Naturals formula used in this product is also safe for color-treated hair.  So whether you dye your hair or not, this dry shampoo will definitely give you that freshly washed and styled look that every girl wants.  So don’t waste your time and money trying all different types of dry shampoos to figure out which one works best.  Just take my word for it and start using Aveeno’s Dry Shampoo.

As stated by their website, “This exclusive ACTIVE NATURALS® formula is infused with Balancing Seaweed Extract which instantly revives hair for healthy manageability. The formula is sulfate-free and designed to remove excess oil and impurities to help boost volume. Developed by our expert team of scientists and eco-friendly celebrity hair stylist, Patrick Melville”.


Patrick Melville’s quick how-to for achieving polished party hair (low chignon):

1.       Blow-dry hair with Mason Pearson Brush or round brush, when hair is dry, spray hair with the AVEENO® Dry Shampoo at the root to create texture

2.       Take a small tail comb and tease very gently at the root throughout the head, flip hair upside down and break up hair with your finger

3.       Grab hair at the nape and secure with hair tie, this should create a little texture and softness around your face

4.       With the tailcomb, gently tease the ponytail to create more texture, spin ponytail around to create a chignon at nape of neck and secure with a straight pin or bobby pin

5.       Break up with fingers on the bottom, use a lightweight hairspray to secure in place, finish with a sparkly headband or clip.

You can find a complete range of Aveeno products from skin and hair care to baby care at

Necklace Saver came to my Rescue


While packing my suitcase to take a well deserved vacation after the hectic holiday, I organized my necklaces with my planned outfits for the trip. I placed each jewelry piece in a Ziploc bag and placed  them in a pocket in my carry-on bag. Reaching my destination, I unpack my items to realize my jewelry pieces were tangled.  I did not have the time to spend untwisting my necklaces… let me remind  you…I was on vacation!!!!!  When I returned home, I set some time aside to find a solution to my problem, and I did!!!!

The Necklace  Saver was the answer to my problem. The Neckace Saver keeps necklaces tangle free for “on the go” and organized at home without taking up extra space!  The necklace tree and the jewelry box is not something I want to display, besides, they take up too much space.  Besides, I never know which piece of jewelry is in which jewelry box.

The Necklace Saver aims to solve all of my problems. It keeps necklaces from tangling and twisting with the others. It takes up very little space in my suitcase and my drawers. Most important, it is made from organza with iridescent pastel colors that are pretty, yet see through so you can easily pick out the necklace you are looking for with ease. The Necklace Saver is quick and easy to use with its uniquely designed, patent pending sleeve – unclasp the necklace and hold the top end.  Hold open the mouth of the  Necklace Saver and insert necklace into the tube.  Grasp other end of necklace at the bottom end of tube, bring two ends together and clasp necklace closed. Tie the ends of the Necklace Saver together.

The  Necklace Saver comes in 3 widths and 2 lengths, so you will be able to accommodate all of your necklaces and bracelets!  Yes, I use them for my clasp bracelets too!!!!  I absolutely LOVE this product !!!! While keeping my jewelry pieces well organized and tangled free, I am also supporting a good cause!   Part of the profits from Necklace Saver are donated to orphanages around the world!!!

I love My Hair…Thank You NEUMA


I’ve recently started using Neuma’s blow dry lotion and fell in love with it.  So I figured, why not try other Neuma products? Well, it turns out Neuma is my new favorite brand of hair products. I tried the shampoo and conditioner. Both smell great and leave my hair feeling silky and smooth.  The shampoo contains shea butter and grape seed extract which has kept my hair shiny and moisturized. The conditioner contains sunflower seed oil and apricot kern oil which adds strength and helps protect against humidity.


Every couple of days I’ve been replacing the conditioner with Neuma’s Moisture Intensive Masque. My hair has never been softer!  It contains jojoba esters, shea butter, and several different essential oils which has turned my frizzy, messy, and unmanageable hair into tamed and shiny hair with tons of volume. I’ve also noticed that styling my hair is so much easier than it was before. It straightens and curls much easier than it did before.  Even when I’m feeling lazy and throw my hair into a pony tail, I have the best looking pony tail I’ve ever had. All of these Neuma hair care products have been amazing. I can’t wait to try the next Neuma hair product I come across!

LUMENE is my new Cocktail for 2013


Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail is a Super Serum in my opinion. If you have dry skin, look no further. This is a comfort Radiance Cocktail. Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail smells sweet and is full of Jojoba and avocado oils.  Use in the a.m and p.m. before you apply your day/night cream. I have never heard of Arctic cloudberry, it’s a super power active ingredient from the arctic and will brighten your skin, improve moisture balance and protect against harmful effects of the environment. You truly have to experience the feel of this on your skin, it feels as if you have been wrapped in velvet.  I love that it also has Vitamin C and is paraben free.

It’s Time for a Fresh Start with Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C


The New Year is a time to start fresh, make changes and reach new goals for the upcoming year.  Many people are opposed to making New Year resolutions due to the many failed attempts over the years.  My skin has felt like a failed attempt in trying to make it look better with many disappointing products over the last several years.  I had almost given up until I tried Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C, which uses power Vitamin C and antioxidants to repair skin and reduce the signs of aging.  My skin had completely lost its youthful glow and smooth clear surface.  I attributed the decline in my skin and signs of aging due to motherhood, bad skincare products, and lack of time to spend on a beauty regime.  My friend introduced me to Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C and asked me to try it for thirty days.  The few big dark spots I had tried to cover up with expensive make-up had vanished.  The Serum C helps lighten and brighten the skin tone, and helps accelerate the healing of the skin.  The many skin problems I had were corrected with one product, lessening the time and expense required for great skin.  I was excited to have my youthful glow back especially for the holidays.  There is only one resolution I will keep this New Year, to continue with Age Defense Antioxidant Serum C, the beauty regime which takes approximately thirty seconds to apply and corrects a multitude of skin problems.

My Coffee Addiction is now an Eight O’Clock Coffee Addiction


This Christmas, my parents bought me my very first Keurig Machine. The K-Cups that they bought for me were EIGHT Clock Coffee Brand. I had never heard of that brand before. After trying my new Keurig machine and Eight O’Clock K-Cups, my coffee addiction has turned into an Eight O’Clock Coffee addiction.  It is the perfect blend of coffee, not too bland, not too bitter…it’s just right.  And for those of you who don’t use Keurig coffee makers, don’t worry, you can purchase it in bags of coffee grinds as well.  Any way you decide to use it, I promise it won’t disappoint you.

I also can’t wait to try the flavored Eight O’Clock Coffee! Yum! One of them is Eight O’ Clock Coffee’s new limited edition Chocolate Mint Coffee. I have heard this new Chocolate Mint coffee is a decadent blend of 100% Arabica coffee with a taste of peppermint with a smooth dark chocolate note. It will be available in select stores and online nationally at in 11oz bags.

I want to share with you one of the “brew-it-yourself” coffee recipes that Eight O’Clock Coffee created that can be made with a traditional coffee maker or with a Keurig® brewer, turning coffee-for-one into coffee-for-fun!

Marshmallow Candy Bar!

Start by putting one Tbsp. of mini marshmallows and one snack sized chocolate/caramel-type candy bar in the bottom of a mug. Then, pour your Eight O’Clock Coffee over the candies. If you’re using a Keurig® brewer, simply brew the coffee into the candy-filled mug. Stir until the candy melts, and you’re done! Test before adding extra milk or sugar – it’s so delicious you may not want to add anything else!

“Brew-it-Yourself” holiday coffee recipes include: Caramel Almond Coffee, Caramel Apple, Chili Chocolate, Coconut Coffee, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, Marshmallow Candy Bar, Peppermint Perfection, White Chocolate

Morning Glamour is a Touch of Class

Who has not woken up in the morning to find their hair standing in every which way and/or visible creases on their faces which are noticeable for a couple of hours into the day. Studies have been shown, that both these problems can be eased simply by switching from cotton pillow cases to satin ones.  Morning Glamour does just that! Morning Glamour is two standard satin pillowcases which improves our appearance just by sleeping on them.  If you think about it, it is true……Cotton fabric is an abrasive material.

It may feel warm and cozy, but it is a highly absorbent material that draws moisture from our skin and hair as we sleep. We don’t need our pillowcase stealing the moisture from our skin and hair!! Whether you are a light sleeper or a heavy one, repeated action on the cotton pillowcase during the night, can cause hair to tangle and break which is a result of spit ends or hair loss!  Cotton fabric ruffles the cuticles of the hair and makes hair frizzy, especially if you have curly hair as I do.  The same repeated action can irritate skin and cause our ever less elastic skin to crease.  Morning Glamour allows your face and head to move easily on the pillowcase, avoiding the friction and damage caused by cotton.

Satin is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Morning Glamour not only has these wonderful benefits to improve your appearance and avoid damages but sleeping on satin is the ultimate comfort and luxury not only for the wealthy. Your bed will feel inviting and enjoyable. Morning Glamour is a touch of class and will relax you so you will be able to get a good night’s sleep.  The Morning Glamour pillowcases have a stay-put pocket design which keeps the pillow in place while you sleep. Sleep your way to a wrinkle free face and healthy hair just by switching your pillowcase to Morning Glamour!!!!!!
Morning Glamour pillow cases come in 6 different colors and patterns
