So Pink by Gap

So Pink by Gap

So Pink by Gap

So Pink Eau De Toilette Natural Spray Vaporisateur by Gap- I Love it! I sprayed just a bit on and I could pick up the citrus note right away. I especially love citrus scents for this time of the year. My Fall Cornucopia decorative fruit basket is filled with grapefruit, oranges, clementines and pummelos.

There is a flowery scent there too. Lilly I guessed and I was right. I found the description at and it mentions sweet pea and musk scents also. It’s $32.99 there with free shipping.

I love that the spray is a well regulated fine mist. I mist it on my body, just about everywhere and a quick mist to my hair. I also mist my clothes the night before I wear them. I always feel like a kid when I sometimes spray the mist and walk right thorough it after a shower!

So Pink comes in a simple but classy pink and white box (pictured). The formula seems to be tinted with pink which reflects through the bottle so it displays wonderfully.

I have been having fun with layering scents lately. I layered So Pink by Gap over a Bath & Body Works Fine Mist of Golden Magnolia Sun and the combo smelled great.

Oiling it up with V05

If there is one thing I can’t express enough is the importance of hair care. Hair, just like our skin, plays a big role in our overall health and appearance. As a stylist I understand it can be hard to get to the salon as often as we would like so I have a solution that will help in between salon visits.



V05 Hot Oil Therapy is a product I recommend for those last minute treatments. The beauty of the V05 treatment is it only takes 1 minute. That’s right 1 MINUTE!!! Only thing, just make sure you do not over go one minute. (be sure to always read the instructions) This is a treatment that will help restore brittle, dry over processed hair in just one use. Just like the oils in our skin, hair has natural oils but in times need a little added boost. Another plus side with the V05 Hot Oil Therapy is it will add incredible shine and manage those pesky split ends.

Ever wonder what V05 stands for? I just found out that V05 stands for 5 essential vitamins.

So if you need that one minute to yourself, do something you will love with V05 Hot Oil Therapy treatment. Check out to find were you can get your own.

Its just that Simple

Ever since I was a teenager I have tried every known skincare and at home remedy to help clear my acne and not cause my sensitive skin to break out. Some have worked and I still use to this day but none work as well as my Simple Skincare! After discovering Simple I could not believe how much money I had spent on all these different cleansers, moisturizers and facial wipes when Simple was so affordable and could be found in my local drugstore. Sometimes the best thing for us does not have to cost $100s of dollars.

With Simple’s Facial Wash, Replenishing Moisturizer and Cleansing Wipes, my skin has never been better. There is always something for every skin type. Simple is made with no added fragrances, no parabens and has no chemicals. Simple Facial Wash removes all traces of makeup, and daily debris while the moisturizer makes my skin feel like new. Now at times I have come home from work and not wanted to wash my face, that’s where the cleansing wipes come in. With one swipe its like washing my face. Again all traces of makeup and debris is gone and also removes waterproof mascara.

It Can Be Tamed!

Frizz seems to be the ultimate demon when it comes to our hair. Especially now that it is the summer months and we will be out and about enjoying it, we may go from perfect hair to “I jumped back into the 70s” afro! With the Zero Frizz Keratin Corrective Hair Serum, curly hair can now be tamed.

Zero Frizz Keratin Corrective Hair Serum

Since the mid-90s Zero Frizz has offered high quality performance when it comes to taming frizz. The Zero Frizz Keratin Corrective Hair Serum is made specifically for thick, coarse, dry hair to add moisture, and shine. It is great for color treated hair to help lock in color and make it last longer. It is enriched with Keratin, and also has UV protection to keep hair extra strong. Zero Frizz Keratin Corrective Hair Serum is best when applied to wet hair and then styled as usual.  This is a great product to use when you just can’t think of anything else. It smells great, and get this you only have to use it on a daily bases but sparingly.

I would not suggest this product if your hair is straight, and fine because then it will cause your hair to be weighed down and look greasy.

Hard Candy’s Fall 2010 Promotions


It is soooo hard to look at Hard Candy’s make up and just pick one item.  The shadows, lip glosses, nail polishes, palettes, primers……… is impossible to pick just one item! I feel like a little kid at a candy store. And while it may be addictive, the good thing is that it isn’t fattening!

 In the decade plus that they have been around, they have managed to always bring us what is trendy, hot and totally cool. They are all pretty, wear well, and come in fabulous little packages.  It is no wonder that the brand is one of the best sellers at Walmart and Sephora.  

And from now through November 2010, I won’t have to pick just one! Every Hard Candy Kal-eye-descope and Meteor-eye shades will be sold with a mini Eyeshadow Primer.  For $6 everyone will be able to experience picture perfect eyes with affordable, high quality shadows!   The Eyeshadow primer has long been recognized for its effectiveness, but until now it has only been available attached on the In the Shadows collection.  Clients have been begging Hard Candy to attach the primer to some of other favorite shadows…………it is nice to know that the Hard Candy team has heard us and delivered!

Well, the Hard Candy team has really listened as they have also decided to partake in a few other promotions. For the same time period, every Sheer Envy Face Primer will be sold with a mini Plumping Serum in light pink Girl Next Door.  Mouthing off, a favorite gloss of just about everyone will be paired with a glittering black Walk the Line liner.  Hot Smudge, a new fabulous liner will be paired with Lash Tinsel in Spellbound.

Since we know the team at Hard Candy has listened to us, we need to send them another message!  Stock up and have the merchandise flying off the shelves………….let’s turn these promotions into a mainstay!
