Smell like a Country Star!

The Country Music TV Awards are on tonight, June 8th. Check out the new scents from Country Music sweethearts Faith Hill & Tim McGraw:

Seasonless and casual, Faith Hill True ($31.50) embodies the natural sensuality of a passionate and spirited beauty. The fragrance begins with a sparkling burst of exotic citrus Japanese Yuzu and is followed by breezy floral notes of Gardenia, Lily and Sheer Mimosa and a gentle, warm dry down of Sandalwood and Musk.

And if you can rope your leading man into the living room too, gift him with the perfect complement to Faith Hill True – Silver by Tim McGraw ($31.50). This cool, modern scent combines hints of green leaves, sandalwood, and saffron for an effortless balance between country casual and city chic.

MTV Movie Awards Beauty

Did anyone watch the MTV movie awards Sunday night? I missed them, but had fun looking at the celebrity style afterwards. Here are some of the products that the celebs used to get their looks:

Bieber Fever! Vanessa Price, Bieber's stylist, used a small amount of KeSARI Indian Oil Hair Serum before blow drying the hair to ensure that there was no frizz. KeSARI Indian Hair Oil Serum retails at $26.50 at

Swedish sweetie, Malin Akerman, swung by to try out some suki – adding that she’s always keen on natural skincare lines, as her complexion is super sensitive.

How To Get Kristen Stewart's Look: Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Adir Abergel started by applying the Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip throughout and rough dried the hair. Once dried, he re-applied the Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip and re-dried the hair to create a natural wave. He then backcombed the hair from roots to ends spraying Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray and slightly ironed the hair. Finally, he brushed the hair to form the texture of the hair.

All products by Fekkai: Advanced Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($23) and Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray ($24). Available at and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley from Transformers showed up in a sexy animal frock, and a half-up style. To recreate Rosie’s ‘do shake göt2b POWDER’ful volumizing styling powder ($5.99) directly into your roots for instant texture and volume. Then use Goody ColourCollection Bobby Pins ($4.29) to hold strands back invisibly.

Queen of fashion, Leighton Meester made a statement with her flashy Balmain dress and her loose waves. For her shiny, healthy looking locks, blow dry with Solano 3700Moda Dryer ($220), which uses far infrared heat that dries from the inside out for overall healthier hair. Pair with the Goody Start.Style.Finish. Gel Cushion Brush ($6.99) when styling for frizz-free, standout locks.

Easy A star Emma Stone hit the red carpet in a shimmery Bottega Veneta frock and equally shiny and chic hairstyle. You can easily achieve the same look with Goody Summer Waves Foam Rollers ($10.99). Simply set damp hair into the rollers and leave in overnight or let sit until dry. Then just unroll and run your fingers through your hair to get the ultimate beach-inspired look. Lock in your ‘do with göt2b rockin’ it encore hold hairspray ($5.99) for flexible, weightless hold.

Flojos’ Under-$20 Animal Print Sandals

We may not need to rely on animal instincts to know that summer is here, but sometimes it takes predatory tactics to find that perfect hot-day activity. Flojos’ affordable animal-inspired print sandals offer the comfort, durability, and style to help summer feet hunt for the ideal beach, track down summer shopping gold mines, and capture a moment of R&R in the sun.

Prowl the coastline for prime sunbathing spots in the spotted rubber COUGAR sandals with shimmering metallic straps, available in Silver, White or Blue (pictured at right), MSRP: $17.

What's in my Beach Bag? - Jason Naturals SPF

Jason Family Naturals Sunblock SPF 45 kept me burn free this past weekend! I had no idea this company has been around since 1959. They have been a pioneer in the 'naturals' beauty department.

This non-greasy, water-resistant sunscreen smells so good. It's not overpowering, just a very fresh 'summery-beachy' smell. The Family Natural Sunblock protects skin from burn, and reduces harmful free radical damage caused by the sun's ultra-violet rays. It's enriched with Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Green tea extract. This is probably why it felt a little moisturizing as well.

My husband and I both used this and were out all day on Memorial Day. We reapplied probably 2-3x throughout the day and came away with no red. If you are in to organic and natural products, this is a good product to use when you're out in the sun. It retails for $11.95

You can find Jason Natural Products at Whole Foods and other health and natural food stores in the US and Canada, or by visiting
