Bobbi Brown Hydrating Skincare

“This Enriched Mineral Water-infused line gives your skin exactly what it needs to stay healthy: moisture. The creams have a lightweight texture so they melt right in, keep your skin soft and glowing all day, and make sure that foundation and concealer go on smooth and evenly. And with their clean botanical scent, the products smell as fresh as they feel.” - Bobbi Brown

Hydrating Skincare works in three ways:

The ingredients in the Hydrating line are designed to replenish dehydrated skin. Super moisturizing Sodium Hyaluronate and Glycerin, a natural humectant, as well as skin barrier-protecting ingredients are replenished to provide instant, 24 hour and long-term hydration.

A natural humectant helps maintain water levels deeper in the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.

Each product in the line also contains its own unique star ingredients as well as collagen to restore the natural plumpness and youthful feel and condition of skin.

CND Shellac in Negligee

CND Shellac in Negligee. Beautiful sheer pink, would be a perfect fit with french tips.

It's so nice not having to worry about my nails during the work week. My BFF Tina did them on Sunday, and I'm good to go for the week and then some :) I would highly suggest trying a Shellac manicure out before a vacation or big event. Seriously, no chips!

The only downside is the removal. It takes awhile and you have to use acetone. Other than that, I saw it's worth trying out at least once :) Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique

For the month of October, is going to have a Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique which will feature specialty products from beauty brands such as Becca Cosmetics, Decleor, Colorscience, Stila Cosmetics, gloMinerals, jane iredale, Sonya Kakar and Alterna, Diana B., and others. All the products sold in the boutique will be contribuing a portion of their proceeds to various breast cancer charities.

In addition to the donations made from the individual brands, will donate 5% of proceeds from each unit sold in the boutique to CEW Foundation's Cancer and Careers program, whose mission is to educate and empower people with cancer to thrive in their workplace by providing expert advice, interactive tools and educational events.

InStyler Review & Giveaway

I read about the InStyler in magazines, Redbook, US Weekly, Glamour, and was interested in trying it out. The tutorials online showed styling videos for short hair, which was really exciting since hair tools usually aren't a good match with shorter hair.

I used the InStyler in place of my normal flat iron straightener and loved it. I used pictures in the manual and videos to make sure I positioned the iron the right way for straightening. Once I got the hang of it, I loved it!

It left my hair silky after straightening, and didn't kink or turn the ends of my hair under like I thought it would. It's a little tricky getting close to your roots since the InStyler is a lot bigger than my straightening iron, so I just went a little slower when straightening my top layers.

Want to give it a try...?
