CoverGirl Blastflipstick

Have you heard about the new CoverGirl blastflipstick yet?

If you haven't, You may just want to march yourself on down 

to your local cosmetics isle and see what it's all about.  I was 

quite impressed by the colors. I just love having two shades 

of lipstick (three if you mix it) on hand in one convenient stick.

My favorite is vixen.

For more info check out the CoverGirl website

CoverGirl blastflipstick in vixen


The COVERGIRL blastflipstick isn't like anything you've ever seen. It's a double-ended lipstick, which, let's be honest, is awesome by itself, but there's even more to it than that. The blastflipstick has two shades — one soft, for day wear, and the other dazzling, for night. Wear separately or combine to create a shade that's all your own. It's your personal color palette, giving you endless pucker-up possibilities.

I fell In love with this jeweled compact ($7.80). Great for applying lipstick on the go!

And if you're on the go and need to write a quick note. How cute is this?!

I've tried the unreal 54, 41, 5, 8. I thought they were all very good! Different, but good. They don't taste or have the same coloring as other mainstream candies (because they use real food to color them, not artificial)

I liked that the Unreal 54 had more of a peanut flavor. It tasted real to me. Unreal 5 had a great chocolate taste.
Unreal 8 had such a wonderful taste..the kind you say yum on the first bite.

Glade Expression Giveaway!

Hey All!
I was gifted with Glade Expressions oil diffuser and fragrance mist through Bzz Agent.
I really like the product and that's why I decided to review and have a giveaway. So you can experience the wonderful scents. 
I was having guests over and didn't want the smell of dinner to linger, so I was really glad I had Glade expressions on hand to get the job done. The Pineapple & mangosteen scent makes you feel like you're in the Caribbean on vacation. I was a little nervous at first because the smell (of the oil diffuser) was really strong the first two days, but it stabilized after that. I kept it in the guest bathroom for that time and now I can bring it into the living room for guests to enjoy.
The fragrance mist is really awesome, giving you the exact amount of fresh scent you want with only one squeeze. I chose the cotton & italian mandarin scent. I LOVE it!  Smells so fresh and clean. Not like some that choke you with their fragrance.
Being the gifted hostess that you are, you know entertaining is all about presentation. Creating a welcoming space takes work, so having your home décor do double duty is, well, ingenious.
The Glade Expressions® Collection is inspired by art and designed to be left out on display. These authentic, easy-to-use home fragrance products release scents that open up note by note, filling your home with lightly layered fragrances and inviting life in.

Glade Expressions® Fragrance Mist comes in a chic holder that blends with your décor for a burst of fragrance that's always out and available. Simply squeeze to release a long-lasting, light mist of fragrance; then refill the holder with your favorite true-to-life scent.
The Glade Expressions® Oil Diffuser releases authentic and exotic fragrances without having to plug it in or find batteries. The trendy holder matches décor perfectly - and is also refillable - making it an effective, stylish option for layering true-to-life fragrances in all of your living spaces.
With four inspiring fragrances to freshen your air, modern holders that complement your (already fabulous) decorating sense and the opportunity to refill scents at your convenience, why not invite the Glade Expressions® Collection into your home before the next round of guests? Your inner hostess knows this is a no-brainer.

Don't waste your Summer fussing with your hair!

Summer is in full swing and so is the humidity!  So if your fighting the frizz, as I am, do I have the product for you!
Frizz-Ease sheer solution lightweight frizz control for fine to medium hair (it comes in different varieties for different hair types.)

After I wash my hair, I shake the "dual formula-part lightweight serum, part smoothing elixir-to fight frizz from the outside while hydrating hair from the inside." Ten drops of the frizz solution smoothed through damp hair and you are on your way to gorgeous frizz free hair. Because I'm usually short on time, I either let my hair air dry, then put it in a bun for beautiful waves or you can follow the John Frieda link John Frieda hair tips for more info on pretty waves using a curling iron.  Did I mention it smells wonderful?

*** I'm a bzzagent and received a free sample. I genuinely like and use this product. That is why I decided to blog about it.

A New Bouquet From Gucci

When I arrived home yesterday I found the prettiest white box with a beautiful flower pattern on my table. Turns out my samples of Flora by Gucci were in. Oh joy!

Judging by the design of my blog I'm sure you can tell that I love flowers.

The Gucci scents are Gracious Tuberose, Gorgeous Gardenia, and Glamorous Magnolia. Each perfume explores a different bloom.

I loved each and every scent and I will be wearing all of them...but my personal favorite was Glamorous Magnolia. You can be glamorous and purchase the set of perfumes at any Sephora or Macy's.

I just love floral scents...this would be a perfect Mother's day gift.

Hello All!

Just tried a few new products through If you haven't signed up yet, you are missing out on some great products!

I was suffering from some serious lack of sleep and thus came the dreaded under eye circles. I tried the
brightening eye perfecter and Voila! They were gone.

I had a moment of insanity and breathlessly asked the beauty in a stick, "where have you been all my life?"

Don't worry!  I eventually came to my senses...but I AM IN LOVE.

Included in the kit was another product I loved!  Ever since I had gotten pregnant nothing had solved the mystery of my suddenly dry, and cracked lips. It was torture. I think I tried just about everything on the market.

That is...until I met Neutrogena's revitalizing lip balm. We've been "best buds" ever since. Truly a wonderful product that does what it says. I love the scent too!

The nourishing eye liner is awesome too. It stays put for me. All day long!

I may have a Neutrogena give-away soon!  Keep checking back with me.

The cute little pink bag to the right is Target's annual Spring goody bag. This is the second year I've received it. All I had to do was friend Target on Facebook. There are cute little samples and tons of target coupons!
