Put a Little “Shea Indulgence” in Her Stocking This Year


Shea Indulgence

Shea Indulgence

Want an excuse to pamper yourself this holiday season? Then drop some hints to family & friends that you would be very happy to have the “Shea Essence of Beauty” set with the butter scrub, shower cleanser and body lotion. What is not to like when you receive a reason to pamper yourself and this gift certainly gives you that. The smell is a fresh, clean and a lightly scented fragrance that sets the tone for feeling very feminine. I gave myself some time out with this luxurious set and enjoyed every minute. After using the scrub, my skin felt  soft and renewed. Then, the shower cleanser provided a great, rich lather to clean and pamper my skin even more. My most favorite part though was the enriched body lotion. It not only moisturized my skin, but also made it very soft and silky. After taking the time to pamper myself, I was ready to relax so I really appreciated that the lotion absorbed very quickly.

Put this one on your hint list and your gift list because if you don’t think of anyone to give it to, you will have to use it.  Nothing wrong with treating yourself and if someone else takes the hint, you will have double the pleasure in 2014!  Not a bad thought at all!

Shea Indulgence can be found at

Amarte, Amore!


There are very few moments in this lifetime when any girl – no matter what your age – gets to feel like a princess. Two weeks ago I got that very chance at a fundraiser ball with my beau – and I cannot believe the magic ingredient that I had to pull myself together.

Rob and I were headed to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to a fundraiser for his job, for Mass General Hospital. I had been feeling, you know, a little wrinkly, and recently had come across Amarte Wonder Cream – a handy little pink bottle that is at once your bodyguard and your fairy godmother!

Amarte uses ActivElements® to defend your skin and lighten freckles and sunspots while the therapeutic properties of this rich cream lovingly exfoliate for a supple, translucent complexion. All the nutrient-packed protection you need to be the belle of the ball!  After just two weeks of using Amarte, I honestly can’t believe it, but I felt like the belle of the ball indeed. At one point in the evening, by honey turned to me and said – you are the most beautiful woman in this room. So….i guess, maybe it was the Amarte…maybe it was too many cocktails….perhaps it was the magical night. But at 51, I will take it all, and then some…

Amarte is wonderfully effective at brightening your skin color, fading away those dark spots, and moisturizing your skin. Unlike many products that you can feel sitting on your skin, Amarte seeps right in and gets to work right away.

Ingredients include water, sorbitan stearate, Schizophyllan (mushroom β-glucan), natural betaine, cyclomethicone, propolis cera, elemental sulfur, Argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil, pearl powder, Saccharomyces/selenium ferment (biopeptide SC), mastic oil, tocopheryl acetate, retinol 1.0%, Myristica fragrans (nutmeg) kernel extract, Syzygium aromaticum (clove) seed extract, Eucalyptus alba leaf extract, Citrus paradisi (grapefruit) seed extract, caviar extract, allantoin, acacia collagen, sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, carbomer, stearyl glycyrrhetinate, butylene glycol, phenoxyethanol.

Not only does Amarte make you feel like a princess, but you will look like one too!

I Want the World to Know I Love Mixed Chicks Spring Bands


Mixed Chicks Spring Bands

Mixed Chicks Spring Bands

I purchased Mixed Chicks Spring Bands for my daughter because I thought they were fun and would look cute in her hair. Surprising they really work and when I love a product………  I LOVE A PRODUCT AND WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW!!  One morning, late as usual, I was in a rush to meet a bunch of friends for our weekly 6 mile run. Opening the door and heading out, I realized I did not have anything to hold back my hair so I rushed back into the kitchen in desperate need of an elastic. On the kitchen counter was one of the Mixed Chicks Hair Bands (You can find hair accessories all over my house and every time my husband picks up one, he announces that we can open up our own beauty store with his “finding supply”). I scooped it up and ran out the door. Yes, I had thoughts of this hair band ruining my run because the results would be hair in my face irritating me and hair sticky to my sweaty back. I needed this hair band to hold my hair away from my face and off my back. As I started my run, I was being a little cautious so my hair band would hold up for at least one of the miles. That philosophy flew out the window, as my friends are very completive and I found myself rapidly sprinting to be ahead of the gang, surprisingly after the 6 miles my hair was still intact.  The Mixed Chicks Hair Band stayed in place and held my hair away from my face and off my back without the wrenching feeling of your hair being pulled back by a 3 year old.

Then there was the genuine test of how the Mixed Chicks Spring Band will exit my hair, as my hair expands in humidity and gets a little wild. Well, it slid out very easily with no damage or hair attached to it. It was as simple as that! Mixed Chicks Spring Bands will keep your hair pulled back and out of your eyes while you workout, play, or just look pretty! They never stretch out and spring back to position so you always have that secure feeling. Curls or frizzy hair will not get tangled as they would with standard fabric or elastic hair bands. Mixed Chicks Hair Bands are specially designed for thick and curly hair! Mixed Chicks Hair Bands comes with 5 bands in each pack and available in pretty colors!  I always have a Mixed Chicks Hair Band around my wrist, ready to be used! Best invention ever!
