Liz Claiborne Made Me Gorgeous For My Date With Hubby! #ClaiborneClasico

      By now, I know most of you are waiting on pins and needles to find out which one of my beautiful outfits from Liz Claiborne was voted the favorite for my special date with my husband.  I won't keep you guys guessing anymore, 72% of you voted for outfit number 2!     As I got ready for our date, I wondered if my husband was going to have a positive reaction to my outfit.  After all, you know how uninterested men can sometimes be when it comes to women's fashion.  I decided to layer my look by wearing a black dressy tank top under my gorgeous Liz Claiborne sweater.  The contrast between the silver threads in the gray sweater and the black top under it was beautiful.     When I walked out into my living room, my husband called out, "Wow, you look beautiful!"  I'm sure you guys would agree that this was the perfect validation to let me know that my readers had chosen the right outfit.  Even my sons loved it which made me feel like the whole evening was really going to be a … [Read more...]

Dare To Bare Your Skin With No Makeup! #DoveBeauty #Spon

This post is sponsored by Dove® ClearTone™ Deodorant - designed to visibly reduce underarm dark marks and even skin tone.     I have never worn a lot of makeup.  It's not that I wouldn't benefit from wearing a little more makeup it's just that I have never really been a fan of having too much on my face and skin.  Over the years, the most makeup that you see me wearing has been eyeliner, mascara, lipstick or lipgloss, and some mineral powder dusted on to control shine.     As I am getting older, however, I am noticing that my skin does not have the same consistency that it used to have when I was younger.  I am noticing more dark and light spots on my face and freckles are becoming a little more prominent.  I've been finding myself looking for ways to take better care of my skin so that I don't have to wear a lot of foundation and makeup to cover imperfections. Here I am in all my glory with no makeup:     Dark spots on the face and other parts of the body are a problem that … [Read more...]

Tips For Solving Embarrassing Beauty Disasters #DoveBeauty #Spon

This post is sponsored by Dove® ClearTone™ Deodorant - designed to visibly reduce underarm dark marks and even skin tone.     Today was a perfect day for me to sit down and blog about ways to solve embarrassing beauty disasters as I am currently having a mini beauty disaster of my own.  Before I begin to tell you guys all about it, let me warn you in advance that some parts of the story might fit within the category of "TMI" or "too much information."     In any case, I have combination skin which means it is oily in some places and dry in other places.  I generally try to take really good care of my face and am pretty lucky to not have many problems with acne as an adult.  Unfortunately, this is not true during that special time of the month that all of us ladies have.     Yes, I'm sorry to say that I always get a pimple or two right around the time I get my period.  This month is no different and, right on time, I quickly noticed the offensive zit right on the left side of my … [Read more...]

Ladybug Jane Organic Flavor Lip Balm Review and Giveaway

    As the colder months are approaching, it is very important to take care of your lips as they become chapped and dry in the colder weather.  I've personally tried many different kinds of lip balms in the hopes that they will protect my lips during this time and soothe them from the extreme conditions.  Unfortunately, not all lip balms are the same and some soothe your lips but don't smell so great.  Also, the skin on our lips is such a sensitive part of our bodies that it is really important to know the ingredients that these balms contain before we expose them to our smiles.     Ladybug Jane Flavor Lip Balms are made from pure ingredients that allow you to enjoy yummy lip balm flavors without using harsh chemicals.  They moisturize, protect, and nourish your lips with USDA certified organic ingredients and taste and smell absolutely amazing.  All Ladybug Jane Flavor Lip Balms also offer you natural protection from the sun because they contain Aloe Extract and Vitamin E which have … [Read more...]

GKhair Hair Taming System with Juvexin Review and Giveaway

    Anyone who knows me knows that taking care of my hair is very important to me.  I have been blessed with a thick head of long and wavy hair and, although most days I love it, it is not always easy to care for due to the sheer volume of it and the fact that it is not totally straight.  Environmental factors such as the weather and humidity can wreak havoc on its texture and I am always trying out new products to make caring for it much easier.     I was very pleased to be offered the opportunity to review GKhair Leave-In Conditioning Spray and Serum.  Based on their descriptions, I was immediately confident that both of these products would be the perfect match for my specific hair needs and I can tell you that I have not been let down by either one of them.  It is without hesitation that I tell you that I will be purchasing these personally long after this review is over. Let me begin with the Leave-In Conditioning Spray.  It is supposed to smooth your hair, eliminate frizz, … [Read more...]
