What to wear

Since I have become a product tester, I have become very picky when it comes to my taste. I use to be able to go into a department store and grab a few dresses, pants or any type of clothing and just buy it. Now, I like to look for what I actually want instead of ending up with clothes that I only wear once and then put in the back of my closet.
Looking for the right fit, the right color, the right materials, matters a lot to me. I enjoy looking at catalogs, magazines, and the internet for my wardrobe. If I go to an actual store, I tend to try on the clothes instead of just buying what looks nice.That way, when I internet shop, I know exactly what looks good on my body shape and what feels good.

I just love to shop!

Keep searching for your products..

Have you ever went to a variety of stores and just couldn't find what you were looking for? I know I have. Now I search the net for anything that I need, so that I can make sure I know which stores to go to or maybe I need to order online. Reseaching will eliminate alot of wasted time.
Looking for adrianna papell dresses? How about coco reef bottom swimwear?As I stated before, research before just assuming that a certain store will carry your specialty items. Even if its milly dresses, the internet is your best bet.
I love the convenience of what shopping has become.

Rolling carry on with a little something special

Guest post written by Gwen Herman



I was a little relieved, to be honest with you, when the lining in my old black plain rolling carry on suitcase got ripped out by my 4 year old daughter. She didn't mean to do it, but I was honestly fine with it. I had grew to hate that bag anyway because it looks just like any other bag that people have on planes and in the airport.



So I thought that I would use that to take the chance to buy some cute luggage that I'll instantly be able to spot as my own. I went online to get some ideas for what I'd like and when I was doing that I ran across some information about www.satelliteinternetbroadband.com/. After I read through it a littel bit, I decided to sign up for oen of them for our home internet service.



I did find thisreally cute rolling carry on that has a black background and a gray geometric print pattern all over it. It's so cute and completely matches my style anyway.

Sweating And Mitchum Antiperspirant

Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, Power Gel, Unscented, 3.4-Ounce Stick (Pack of 4)CLICK HERE TO BUY MITCHUM



The advertising campaign for Mitchum antiperspirant will inform you of the various advantages that you will gain by using this odor protector. There are in reality, both advantages and disadvantages, to using this antiperspirant. One of the main disadvantages is the high price. Unlike the other brands of antiperspirants and deodorants, Mitchum antiperspirant is more expensive.





While most antiperspirants are available in a roll on form or a solid stick, Mitchum antiperspirant can be bought as a spray and a roll on. There is another bonus to be found with using this product. To help with the problem of body odor Mitchum antiperspirant has some antibacterial properties. These antibacterial properties are part of the reason why you will not smell badly after you have used this product.



You can buy Mitchum antiperspirant in two sizes. The sizes are 50ml and 100 ml. When you are using this product you will notice that it has the ability of working for longer periods of time than your average antiperspirant. In fact there are claims that this particular product has the ability of working for about 48 hours or so.



Now when you are looking for information about Mitchum antiperspirant you will find that most people complain about the high price. There are a few people who will have negative feelings about this antiperspirant, but on the whole you will find that most users of Mitchum antiperspirant have become regular users just after their first application with this antiperspirant.



So the best way that you can judge just how effective this antiperspirant is you will need to try with a spray or roll on based antiperspirant. Once you have decided if you like it then you can see about buying one of the Mitchum antiperspirant products.



For those of you who are against using animals for any type of cosmetic testing, you will be pleased to know that Mitchum antiperspirant by Revlon does not have any part of hurting animals as part of making this antiperspirant. Instead of waiting to see if anyone you know is using this product you should take the chance and try Mitchum antiperspirant for yourself. After all the proof is in the packaging as they say.

I love this..AMAZING RESULTS

I tried this today. I love it!!!!
When you apply it,it leaves a smooth silky finish. Its colorless. You can apply it to your face alone or you can apply it and wear your regular foundation or powder over it. Try doing half your face with L'oreal Studio Secrets Face Primer base. You will see the difference and will wonder why you haven't been using this all along.

For those that have a cat..

URI-EASE PAW-GEL FOR CATS. It helps maintain urinary tract health.

This stuff works!!
After a certain age, cats can get a u.t.i. Make sure you notice if she is frequently going to the litter box and also going in other places too. Licking her private area to much is another sign. Make sure if you notice any blood in the urine as well. that is not healthy. Don't assume anything, just take her to the vet. Although I am not one to have my cats on meds, you still need to get them treated. I rather give her natural meds.  Ask your vet about that. The Uri-ease is used everyday, once a day to maintain a healthy urinary tract. They love it because it has a salmon flavor to it. It stinks, but it works.

I like natural healing remedies for my cat. Feeding them purina cat food is the best for my cat. Many other brands do not have the antioxidants that they need for a healthy urinary track. Giving  your cat soft food mixed with the hard food during the times of  u.t.i  flare ups is good to do.

Cranberry extract  is great to give your cat. Even when they do not have a u.t.i. It will maintain the track healthy. One of my other favorite home remedies is sprinkling garlic powder once a week in my cat's food. She will sniff it for a while, but of course she will lick it and like it. Its great for their system. If you notice that your cat is not drinking enough water, make sure you give her/him water with a baby medicine dropper. Squeeze a little at a time into their mouth. They will let you if you hold them correctly. Gently, by the back of the neck and have them on a flat surface, not your lap.

Love your cat(s) and keep them healthy.

My 5 year old Tigger. I had her since she was 6 weeks old:)

I just tasted this..


I am more of a champagne and cocktail taster, but I absolutely love this wine. "Keel Curley"
Blueberry Wine.
Made in Plant City Florida where they grow their own blueberries. I don't even care for blueberries, but I like this wine. Its not dry, not bitter and very smooth going down. They sold me on this sweet tasting wine.
CHEERS!!

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is definitely something to consider if you do not want unwanted body hair. If you want back hair removal, or any part of your body hair removed, then researching a reputable company that specializes in laser hair removal will be the best option. Often times people use traditional methods such as, hair removal lotions, waxing, and razors, but they ended up dissappointed with the result.

The results of traditional methods only lasted for about 1-2 weeks. The laser hair removal treatment tends to keep the hair gone for a longer time period. Discussing the pros and cons with the specialist is the best way to have all your questions and concerns answered.


When calling, ask for an appointment so that you can have a consultation. The specialist will go over all the details as to what you have to do prior to scheduling your appointment. Many people are misguided by thinking that the treatment is painful. If your concerned about that, then ask the professional how the treatment is going to feel. You may also want to ask if there are any known side effects. I'm sure you will be pleased with the outcome of your laser hair removal treatment.

Black Grape


Drink Well-Live Long
Metabolism-Black Grape's Proprietary blend of L-Leucine, Green Tea Extract, Resveratrol and Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid) are naturally occurring nutrients that when combined together help promote increased metabolism and health. Now you can Burn up to 200 calories a day more by just drinking the combination of the right nutrients found in Black Grape.

Natural Energy-Black Grape will give you that extra boost when you need it. A blend of B Vitamins, Taurine, Green Tea Extract, Guarana Seed Extract and Natural Caffeine gives you that pick me up when you need it -- without the crash. Black Grape has as much natural caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee.

Power of Resveratrol-Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant produced by plants to attack pathogens, foreign bacteria and environmental stresses. Some of the richest sources of Resveratrol are the skins of red or dark grapes and Japanese Knotweed. Independent researchers have found that Resveratrol protects cells from free radicals and acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-mutagen. Recent studies suggest Resveratrol improves performance of the brain and heart, and promotes cellular longevity. Many nutritionists and health professionals encourage those with poor immune systems or those recovering from illness to consume foods with Resveratrol. As an entirely natural plant compound, it is a perfectly safe addition to any healthy diet.
Turn on your Body... Turn off your Tongue

Your tongue is probably your biggest enemy when trying to stick to any diet. The fact is your tongue is a pleasure center that stimulates the brain while you are eating. How often have you felt full, but your mouth still craves food? The Resveratrol and Green Tea Extract in Black Grape work together to Turn Off Your Tongue. Did you ever notice that when you drink a glass of red wine with dinner you tend to eat less and have a dry feeling on your tongue? The same thing happens when you have a cup of Green Tea.
**Drinking 1/2 a can of Black Grape 10 minutes before your meal can help you eat less and stick to your diet by helping turn off your tongue.

Try it today!

Looking for a deal?..

Who said you can't find good deals anymore?


My favorite top 5 sites that will cater to the casual,athletic,trendy and business woman are http://www.metrostyle.com/ , http://www.newportnews.com/, http://www.claires.com/ , http://www.getheavenly.com/
and  http://www.fashionbug.com/

Instead of going to different stores to look for a style and sale,you can take a look at my top 5 favorites to mix and match your stylish ensembles.Including accessories because you can take a plain tank top or fitted t-shirt and make it look fabulous with accessories.Throw a stylish jacket over it and there you,It won't look plain anymore.

My picks..

metrostyle.com and newportnews.com are sites that are your one stop to great deals and are known for tops for less than $10.00,business suits for less than $30.00,and shoes for $20.00.

I also stumbled on some great deals for plus size types at fashionbug.com. You can even find a wedding gown for less than $50.00.

Although getheavenly.com does not have a huge selection,they do have some tops that I found for $12.00. They even have a tank top for less than $3.00.

Let us not forget accessories. Claires.com is my favorite. You can find a Claires at almost every mall across the U.S.A. Claires has great deals on bags,ranging from $3.00-$20.00, scarfs $14.00 and hats for $16.00. Accessories plays a big part in your wardrobe.

I also just took a peek at Walmart and there were cute trendy butterfly t-shirts for $5.00.

For the Man..




After shaving, cleanse your face and apply equal parts of witchhazel and rosewater on a cotton ball. You can mix these two ingredients together inside a cup if you like and just soak up the cotton ball with it, squeeze excess and apply to face. Especially where you shaved. Do this twice a day.

You can buy rosewater here:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Dbeauty&field-keywords=rose+water

Witchhazel is sold in any drug store or grocery store/dept store or here:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=witch+hazel

Does this work? Yes it does!







How to Keep Lipstick off Your Teeth



from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

Many women love to wear lipstick,but they do not want to be caught off guard by having lipstick on their teeth. Heres a quick tip to keep lipstick off your teeth.


Steps




  1. Line your lips(same shade as lipstick or a natural color)


  2. Apply a lip liner that matches the color lipstick that you will be applying,Fill it in. Top and bottom.


  3. Stay away from being too close to the inner lips.


  4. Apply translucent powder over the lipliner.


  5. Apply your lipstick


  6. This technique will also keep your lipstick on longer


  7. Place paper in between/inner lips(This will remove any excess that is inside the inner lips.Some people also use their finger,forming an o with their lips and they slide the finger out.


  8. Some people may even apply vaseline on their teeth, which doesn't taste too good,so I have tried using the same method with applying lip gloss on the teeth. Works the same way.This allows the lipstick not to stick to your teeth.


  9. I also prefer to apply lipstick with a lip brush.Gives you more control of where to go and not go.


  10. -Don't forget to moisturize your lips over night by applying a chap stick or lip balm. Lips that are properly hydrated and moisturized equals a smooth lipstick application the next day.







Tips




  • Refrigerate your lipstick during the summer and any make up that is prone to melting in the heat.Then stick it inside your purse when your ready to go.


  • I love my eye cream in the refrigerator as well. The cold once applied under the eyes will take away the puffiness immediately.

Eye Shadow


Many people think that you match your clothes with your eye shadows.
Maybe back in the 80's, but no you don't.
You choose colors according to your eye color and eye shape. If you have any questions..let me know

Foundation & Contouring



Many women are use to that one shade on the face all over and the results are a very un natural looking face.

You need 2 foundations. Your foundation needs to be only one shade lighter than your normal foundation and then you have your regular foundation. Apply the lighter shade under the eye area, then apply your regular color foundation on the other areas of our face that needs foundation. Apply translucent loose powder or your compact pressed powder. Remember the compact powder is for more coverage and for oily skin. Be careful not to put so much on. You can always blot it out with a tissue. I like the loose powder because it goes on light and your in control of it more. Just make sure you cover up your clothes so that the loose powder doesn't get on your clothes.
Using a foundation that is a shade darker is also useful for contouring.A bronzer powder can be used as well. Apply a thin line of the darker foundation to areas you would like to minimize and the one shade lighter foundation to the areas you want to bring out. If you have any questions about this technique let me know and I will post pictures up and instructions.

Why this Lip plumper?Have cracked lips?



I Love Sally's lip inflation and maximum plumping lip treatment...This lip plumper will help to smooth lips and it helps your lipstick not to bleed in your cracks.First, you add translucent powder to your lips,this will keep your lipstick on for a long time. Kiss a tissue to get excess off.If you line your lips,go ahead and do so now. Apply the lip plumper,wait 2 minutes before applying your lipstick. You can also apply your lipstick first,then your lip plumper. try it both ways,so that you can see which one you prefer. The lip plumper will tingle a little.
If you have full lips and your lipstick goes in your lip cracks,make sure you apply chapstick nightly, so that you can condition your lips during the night. That way when you apply your gloss or lipstick in the morning,your lips will be smooth.

Ocean Prime Restaurant review


What a restaurant!
Not only is this place elegant,but the staff is wonderful,they make you feel special and that you matter. The food is delicious and so are the drinks. If you like any of the recipes,all you have to do is ask them to give you a print out of the recipe and the chef will gladly do so. Now thats class!
Ocean Prime has many locations and I had the privilege to go to the Orlando Fl location.Impress an important client or go to Ocean Prime for an occasion is the best choice. Is it pricey?...Yes,but well worth it!
Call for reservations.

CG-exact EyeLights


This mascara advertises that it changes the color of your eyes with a hint of highlight. This masca is recommended for those with colored eyes. It is said that it doesn't make a change to dark eyes.
The mascara is a good mascar though. It separates with the clump. I like it for a day time mascara. Its not as dark or heavy,so I would use it during the day.
About $7-9.00 in drug stores.

Check out!

Check out "Recipes for the skin" in my blog list to the left. Great home facial mask!

Do you have a favorite product that you use?


Do you have a favorite product that you use and you absolutely love it?
Let us know what it is and post it in the comment box. Let us know the name and what it does, or maybe you tried a product that doesn't work? Let us know!
**I'll start off with..
Garnier Skin renew anti-puff roller
Its for puffy or bagging eyes.
I LOVE THIS! The applicator is metal so it stays cold..Which is essential to bring the puffiness down. Try some on the back of your hand just to make sure your skin reacts to it well. You should do this with all products:) A great way to keep this product working its best..stick it into the fridge and put it in your purse when your ready to go out.
I bought it in walgreens.About 14 bucks.Its worth it!And it last a long time.
