Coffee Break - Zoya Nail Polish in Katy


Sunday morning...Panera Bread...fresh mug of half regular and half hazelnut coffee...and freshly painted nails in Zoya Katy from Ooh -La-La collection...

Zoya's colors are so rich and bold, and go on really smooth. I used a Poshe basecoat before painting which helps from chipping and makes my nails a lot stronger.

Makeup Break - Bobbi Brown Nudes Collection

“Nude makeup never goes out of style- it’s polished, sophisticated and always looks modern.”- Bobbi Brown


This July, Bobbi introduces her newest take on nude makeup with her 2009 Nudes Collection.



“Nude makeup doesn’t mean monochromatic, barely-there makeup. It means makeup that’s right for your skin,” says Bobbi who has created a new, limited-edition eye palette for fall. The Nude Eye Palette ($60) features eye shadow duos in a sophisticated and universally flattering selection of shades and textures. The eye shadow duos come in our customizable 3 Pan Palette, which can be filled with your choice of any Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow or Blush shades.


Bobbi also introduces a new shade to her iconic Shimmer Brick collection- the Nude Shimmer Brick ($40). Featuring five pure pearl pigments in pink, gold, bronze, beige, and caramel, the shades are designed to be blended together to give all skin tones a soft nude, lit from within glow.



In addition the Nudes Collection includes Caviar Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($21) our best-selling liner now in a rich, deep brown shade, and four new shades of Bobbi’s popular Creamy Lip Color ($22) that compliment the Nude Eye Palette and Nude Shimmer Brick.



All of these products will be available from www.bobbibrown.com and Bobbi Brown counters July 2009.

Giveaway Break - Nouriva Repair Moisturizing Cream

Are you suffering from dry skin this summer? Nouriva Repair Moisturizing Cream is the answer. Nouriva Cream is perfect for hard-to treat dry and sensitive skin and does not contain preservatives and is fragrance-free and non-greasy.

With a unique combination of the three lipids that skin needs to stay smooth; ceramide 3, cholesterol and free fatty acids, along with a combined base formula that features glycerin, paraffin, mineral oil and carnauba wax, Nouriva Cream is perfect for every dry part of your body. It features a unique formula of more than twice the amount of petrolatum to water which seals in moisture and keeps hydrating skin for 24 hours.

I keep this cream by my bedstand and use it on my hands at night before bed. I love that it's unscented (the worse is smelling a strong scent before bed) and it lasts throughout the night.

Amazon Beauty has launched two new exciting ancient hair remedies. Rahua Shampoo and Rahua Conditioner strengthens and lengthens all hair types including color-treated and delicate hair, as well as balances and maintains a healthy scalp.

Made with rainforest grown symbiotic ingredients, this rich and luxurious organic collection pays tribute and respect to the beautiful women of the Amazon Rainforest. A truly natural hair care collection that is harvested in the wild, Amazon Beauty delivers ancient secrets of the amazing women who have inspired and enlightened history with their intelligence, power and strength. These ingredients have been created and used by Amazon native tribal women for thousands of years.

I was lucky enough to try out the Rahua Shampoo and Conditioner and loved the way it made my hair feel. It didn't dull my blond highlights or weight my hair down after styling. There is a very light, earthy smell to these products that doesn't linger after the shower. I also tried the Rahua Leave-In Treatment that helped my hair to remain frizz free on a rainy day.

Skin Break - Coping with Sunburn

Ann Thariani, President of Gilden Tree, offers the following tips for coping with a sunburn this summer...

Five Top Tips for Coping with Sunburn:



1. Get out of the sun as soon as possible once you realize you're sunburned. If you can't get indoors, get under shade. The longer you stay in the sun, the worse your burn will be, and you run the risk of sunstroke.


2. Get into cool, clean water, either in a shower or a bath, or lay down with wet towels on you. Heat literally radiates off Nourishing Foot Creamsunburned skin, and your body needs help to cool down fast.


3. Moisturize your skin with a high Aloe Vera content cream like Gilden Tree's Nourishing Foot Cream, or Hand, Nail & Cuticle Salve as soon as possible.


Gilden Tree's foot cream and salves combine Certified Organic Aloe Vera with Jojoba Oil and Shea Butter, which helps skin stay moist and comfortable. (Keep Nourishing Foot Cream sample packets in your first aid kit for emergencies.)


Aloe Vera helps reduce swelling and inflammation, but plain Aloe will dry and crack, so you have to keep reapplying.


4. Drink lots of water or a sports drink like Gatorade. Your body is in desperate need of water and dehydration is a real danger.


5. Take a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen to help with pain and swelling.


If you feel nauseated, dizzy, have trouble breathing, or have a temperature, you may be suffering heat stroke, which means your body can't regulate its temperature, and you should seek immediate medical care.


Taking quick action will help you feel better faster, and by moisturizing well, you may reduce the pain and peeling of sunburn. And next time, don't forget the sunscreen!



And the Winners are...

Congrats - you all won the White Sands Smudge giveaway!

This Year's Top Beauty Icon

- Press Association

Cheryl Cole has been voted this year's top beauty icon.


The Girls Aloud singer clearly possesses the X Factor, beating Jennifer Aniston, Holly Willoughby, Angelina Jolie and Kate Winslet to top the poll by face mask company, Montagne Jeunesse.



"Cheryl Cole is the nation's sweetheart and it's not hard to see why - she's beautiful and stylish but girly and down to earth at the same time... with immaculate skin and gorgeous hair, it's no wonder she came top of the beauty icons," said Montagne Jeunesse's Kate Johnson.



Cheryl was also chosen as the best celebrity pampering partner by women, followed by Dawn French and Fern Britton, while men picked David Beckham as their favourite.



"David Beckham is one of the ultimate A-list celebs and it's no surprise guys would want him as their pampering partner - he led the trend in male grooming, openly using cosmetics and beauty products and famously wearing that skirt. He's a regular guy but in touch with grooming and looking after himself," Kate said.
