As If I Needed More Reason to Adore Davines: AKA: Davines Sustainable Beauty Day (October 15)

How cool is the illustration on this packaging?!?

I have been HOOKED on this rich, creamy, delightful smelling butter for the past month or so. Davines Authentic Replenishing Body Butter is remarkable because unlike some other products that claim to multitask (but really only perform best at one duty), this wonderful cream works just as well in my delicate, curly tresses as it does on my parched skin (my oily face makes me wary of using anything on it that uses the term "butter" to describe it). 

Made with 98% naturally-derived ingredients, this nourishing butter deeply replenishes both your body and hair. You can use it as a pre-treatment on dry hair before shampooing, or massage it onto your face and body for superior moisturizing.

But there's more to Davines than superior quality, salon grade hair care products...

Save Some Boobies, Buy a Bag! AKA: Patricia Nash Stand up to Breast Cancer Auction

Want to peek into your favorite celebs handbag?

Currently, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. There are an estimated 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the United States alone, and Nash sought to do her part to take a stand against the disease and show her solidarity with women all over the world.

Tropic Isle Living Leave In Conditioner & Detangler- AKA: A Curly Girl Chronicle (CGC)

Tropic Isle Living's Leave-In Conditioner and Detangler

Product Description: Give your hair that extra vibrancy it needs by using Tropic Isle Living's Leave-In Conditioner and Detangler with a fusion of Rosemary, Shea, and Jamaican Black Castor Oil. This conditioner not only conditions your hair,  it also calms tangled hair making it so much easier to comb through. It adds extra sheen and moisture-helping to keep your curls looking fresher and more defined than ever. Use on dry hair to refresh your style. Do not rinse out. Squeeze an adequate amount of product into palms and apply over, under and through hair. For more defined curls apply product to wet or fairly damp hair.  

Ingredients:  Organic Aloe Juice, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Shea Oil, Vitamin E, Vegetable Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Stearalkonium Chloride, Meadowfoam Oil, Phenoxyethano, di-Pathenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Black Willow Bark Extract, Rosemary, Bay, Basil, Cedarwood, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Pimento, and Cetearyl Alcohol.   

My Take:  I *love* a spray detangler/leave in conditioner, and with the all star list of ingredients (aloe juice, JBCO, and Pro Vitamin B-yes please!) in Tropic Isle Living's Leave In Conditioner and Detangler, I had very high hopes for this one. And I was not disappointed! It was a great introduction to the brand (stay tuned for more reviews of their products), and a great product to boot. I used it on Kenzie to detangle her ever growing mane (I promise she has more hair every time I do it) and was so pleased with the results that I attempted French braided pigtails on her for the first time...

The only way her hair could have turned out better is if she had actually stayed still :)

Thusly motivated, I aimed the spray at my own tresses in order to dry detangle my own hair (my normal pre poo habit) and was once again so impressed with the results, that I actually held off on washing my hair. The conditioner left my hair so shiny and soft and smooth, I just couldn't convince myself to wash it away! The only slight caveat to this product (and it is not at all a deterrent, even for me the fragrance snob) is that, in order to maintain the integrity of the formula, there are no fragrances added to any of the products in the Tropic Isle Living line. What you smell is a combination of all the wonderful, natural ingredients within-a scent that I can only describe as nuanced, earthy, and herbally-not at all unpleasant, just perhaps something that you are not used to. Until next time...

Bring Sexy Back in 5 Minutes! AKA: GMYMO with David Kirsch and LookTV

So... Having a strong back is important for everybody, but if you're like me and happen to be a bit top heavy (cough *understatement* cough), having a strong back is a necessity. David Kirsch to the rescue!


Exactly what I needed! A new way to work out aggression (no really, my wallet can't take anymore retail therapy)! Don't you just love these sessions? I do! Until next time...

Another Day, Another Face! AKA: FOTD

I've been really hesitant about plastering my face on this blog, but seeing as this is a beauty blog and all, and I do fairly often discuss makeup, it's probably not fair to not at least show you what it looks like on me *sometimes*. So here goes (don't judge me)...

So yeah, that's me. I'm not so good at the self portraiture, but I'm hoping if I do it more, I'll get better. My hair is in two strand twists that I just pulled up and back (it actually looks really cool, but I can't figure out how to get a good picture of it). My bracelet is from BaubleBar (I'm obsessed with them lately) and the watch is from Send The Trend (love them too!). But on to the important stuff-the makeup!

Like I Died and Went to Scrubalicious Heaven! AKA: LaLicious Sugar Souffle Moisturizing Body Scrub

Once again, summer to fall transition + my skin = chaos. So other than slather my skin in butters, creams, and lotions (oh, and my beloved oils! Can't forget the oils!) the other step I try to take to help my panicky skin is exfoliate more often. But the thing about exfoliating is, it usually leaves my skin more frazzled than before. That was SO not the case with this gem...

It's Natural and It Works... AKA: Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Body Lotion

My skin is a bit schizophrenic. I'm oily on my face but dry (so dry) every where else. So I'm sort of obsessed with lotions, creams, and butters. So when I saw the label of Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Body Lotion, I was all in!

Like A Yummy Slushie For Grown Ups! AKA: Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails

So, I promise I'm not an alcoholic, but I do enjoy imbibing a few from time to time. I consider myself to be a social drinker (though most the time the only person I'm being social with is the hubby, and it's generally within the four walls of our home), and because I seriously have a tolerance level that is ridiculous (which I'm starting to discover makes drinking not that much fun in the first place), I'm very particular about what I drink. It has to taste good. I'll admit it, I'm not a fan of beer. Or red wine (for the most part). I'm of the mindset that if you have to *acquire* the taste for something, why bother?

All that being said, the Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails are DELICIOUS!!! Thanks to SheSpeaks, I was able to try all 3 of the new flavors (Blackberry Merlot, Strawberry White Zifandel, and White Pear Pinot Grigio) and in all honesty, the hubby and I consumed them in 3 days. At first he scoffed at what he perceived as a girl's drink, but he ended up truly enjoying them (as did I). My favorite flavor was the Blackberry Merlot  (it was more mellow and less sweet than the other two) and he liked the White Pear Pinot Grigio, but all three were very good. 

The texture of the concoction was quite enjoyable, not too icy, but thick enough to feel nice and refreshing in the mouth, sort of like an alcohol laden sorbet. I used a spoon when partaking mine, but I suppose that if you let the package (or your individual glass) sit out for a while, it will melt to a sippable consistency. But I like the idea of having these on hand for a backyard BBQ, where the adults can have their own versions of the icy treats we serve our little ones. One of the other things I really enjoyed about all 3 of these cocktails is that though they were icy, they were not at all watered down. You could still taste the alcohol in each of them, which is a good thing in my book. 

These are the perfect summer time, grown up treat-whether you're enjoying them by yourself (I won't judge you as long as you do it responsibly and are of age) or sharing them with guests. And I live in Georgia, where the summer weather typically lasts until mid November (that might be a slight exaggeration, but only a slight one) so I plan on enjoying their sweet coolness for as far into the season as I can!

Have you tried Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails? Which is your favorite flavor? If you haven't tried them yet, what flavor would you like to try? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...

PS- Products were sent for the purpose of review by Arbor Mist and SheSpeaks. I was not paid for this post and all opinions stated are 100% honest and my own :)

I Guess There's a 1st Time for Everything... AKA: My September Birchbox

My September Birchbox arrived on Tuesday, and maybe because it felt like it took longer than usual to arrive, or maybe because a few other packages arrived with it, I just wasn't as excited about it as I usually am. Unfortunately, seeing its contents didn't increase my excitement level but c'est la vie... I guess they all can't be winners (and maybe I'll like it more after I use the "goodies" inside).

Here's what arrived:

21 drops (Focus Aromatherapy Blend; Full size $29)- Stay sharp with this mind-clearing blend of rosemary and peppermint essentials oils. Apply to pulse points and breathe deep (meh... I want makeup from Birchbox-not aromatherapy stress relief).

Color Club (Birchbox Custom Polish in Status Update; Full size $8)- We teamed up with Color Club to create this custom shade, inspired by the Fall 2012 collections (the shining light of this month's box; y'all know I love me some polish).

Nexxus (Pro Mend Split End Treatment System; Full size $9.99-$14.99)- Infused with coconut oil and amino acids, this shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment work together to fix unsightly split ends. (This is actually a set of products that has intrigued me whenever I've seen ads for it. However, I may be a bit spoiled when it comes to hair products-the size of these samples definitely leaves something to be desired).

twistband (Birchbox Custom Lace Hair Tie; Set of 6-12 $14-22) Designers went gaga for lace this season and we don't blame them. Get on board with these ouch-free hair ties (Um... yeah. Been there, done that with Birchbox. Once again, makeup makes me happy, fancy ponytail holders-not so much).

Vasanti (Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator; Full size $34)- This exfoliating cleanser uses professional grade (read:effective) microderm crystals and papaya enzymes to brighten dull skin. (The other star in this box-make up and skin care, that's what I love from my beloved Birchbox).

Lifestyle Extra 

Mighty Leaf Tea Company(Teas; Box of 15, $9.95)- Swap your afternoon latte for these yummy tea blends, made from natural, ethically sourced ingredients (Once again, been there done that with Birchbox, and it was cool the first time, but this time, not so much).

I also received a digital download of two songs from singer-songwriter Tristan Prettyman, a discount from Madewell, and a cute little Fall Trends mini magazine. This is the first time I've received a Birchbox that I didn't absolutely love. But it was bound to happen eventually I suppose. I'll still be faithful to Birchbox and I still think that you should give them a try too! Until next time...

Because I LOVE Her and You Should Too! AKA: Kimbra's New Video "Come Into My Head"

CGC (For the Mini Me)! AKA: Curly Q's Curly Q Custard

Product DescriptionThis rich and creamy custard textured cream provides great curl definition, weight and sheen for curly girls. It is loaded with certified organic ingredients (Certified Organic Sunflower Oil and Certified Organic Aloe Leaf Juice) and moisturizing butters (e.g. Shea and Mango) to hair strengthening ingredients such as Panthenol and Lecithin. Curly Q Custard will naturally elongate her curls. Provides moisture, definition, shine, frizz control, and acts as a anti-humectant.

Ingredients: Purified water, certified organic sunflower oil, octyl palmitate, certified organic aloe vera leaf juice, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, potassium stearate, panthenol, stearic acid, sodium carbomer, allantoin, cetearyl alcohol, certified organic sweet almond oil, shea butter, certified organic jojoba oil, soy tocopherols, phenoxyethanol, fragrance.

silicone free, sulfate free, paraben free, organic

My Take: Curly Q's Curly Custard is from Curls' hair care line for kids. It is a medium weight curl cream that adds definition without hold. Because I would be primarily using it on my babies, I love that it is sulfate, silicone, paraben, mineral oil and petrolatum oil free. Purified water is the first ingredient so this is definitely meant to act as a moisturizer, but I found that I needed to seal it, in order to add shine to the hair. The jar says that it will "naturally elongate" the hair, but I didn't notice any obvious change in the amount of shrinkage in Lo's hair.

A look inside  the jar. The product is really rich and creamy, but not at all greasy. 

"Custard" is the perfect way to describe the texture of this thick and rich cream and it has a very light and pleasant scent. I suggest waiting until the hair is merely damp, and not soaking wet, to apply the custard, as it did not seem to soak into the hair when applied immediately after washing. We shampooed and then conditioned the hair and I attempted to use the custard as a detangler/leave in conditoner, but it didn't really work in that capacity. I recommend detangling with a leave in first, then using this after. Lo's 4a/b curls were soft and very well defined, and though I would've liked for them to have more sheen, her hair did look beautiful.

Lo's 2nd day, wash and go hair after using the Curly Q Custard :)

I would say that this is comparable to Shea Moisture's Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie , which we are already huge fans of. I think this is perfect for someone that is looking for something similar, but prefers products with a lighter scent. Ultimately, while I liked the product in Lo's hair, I think it is better suited for Kenzie's finer hair and perhaps even my own 3a/b curls.

Until next time...

PS-The product was supplied to me for the purpose of review by NaturallyCurly.com and the company. I was not paid for this review and all opinions stated are 100% honest and my own :)

Yes, I Would Love It If Christina Applegate Dressed My Daughter! AKA: Kenzie + FabKids + You!

Kenzie *modeling* her brand new outfit!

This is precisely why I love Facebook! Perhaps I would have found out about it in some other manner, but it just so happens that I discovered it via a post on Facebook last Tuesday. I read something about a 3 piece outfit for little girls for $39.95 shipped and I had to find out more. So I clicked through and was introduced  FabKids, and I found myself (happily) sucked in to another subscription service...

Just What I Needed! Get Sexy Abs, 5 Minutes At A Time! AKA: GMYMO With David Kirsch and LookTV

Quite honestly, it's going to require that I shed quite a few more pounds before I have anything in my midsection that slightly resembles abs, but I'm definitely going to be incorporating this routine so that I can chisel my belly down even quicker! I love how it feels like David is talking *right to me* (aren't you jelly?)!

I Know I Can Be Faithful... AKA: What I'm Loving RIGHT NOW...

I go through a lot of product (well, maybe not a lot... more like, more than the average... who am I trying to kid? I go through a lot of product, quite happily). Some things I  love, some things are so so, some...not so much. Get a shopping list ready, these are the things I'm loving currently and though the lineup may swiftly change, all of these goodies come with Mama's stamp of approval....

Caterpillars No More! AKA: Give Your Brows a Natural Finish with TouchBack Brow Marker

To this day, my mother is one of the most fashionable, stylish, beautiful women that I know. For as long as can remember (and probably far beyond even that), her nightly routine included washing her face and then filling in her eyebrows with a pencil and applying some kind of color to her lips. She always made a point of being presentable at all times (even in her sleep). I never understood the point of taking off makeup just to put some back on, but now that I'm married, it makes more sense.

Another thing I never really saw the point of was filling in my brows. I've made sure that they were in a neat, natural looking arch since my early teens, but other than that (semi) regular maintenance, I left my brows alone. Enter YouTube and every gurus obsession with brows (and my personal realization after a terrible growing out period that helped me to see that they truly can make or break your look) and now I've been on a quest for the right technique and products for my brows.

Rose Byrne's Gorgeous, Glamorous Waves-AKA: Get the Look With John Frieda

Rose Byrne at the Lucky Magazine soiree

When I originally saw this press release, I hesitated a bit trying to determine whether or not to share it, since I recently did a celebrity/John Frieda look post featuring Zoe Saldana. But then realized that the same products were used for both looks and I love how that just goes to show the versatility of John Frieda's awesome products. So if you'd like to achieve Rose Byrne's gorgeous, old Hollywood waves, here are step by step instructions:

Eye Know They're the Windows to My Soul! AKA: mama mio's Eye Know High Protein Moisturizing Eye Serum

I'm kind of a newb when it comes to taking care of my eyes area, but I'm fully on board now (well, maybe half on board). I've tried a few different creams and so far mama mio's Eye Know High Protein Moisturizing Eye Serum is my favorite!

Nail the Look-AKA: butter LONDON New York Fashion Week Spring 2013

So maybe I can't fit into a sample size, and perhaps I don't quite have the budget for all the designer duds I would like, BUT I can mimic the exact trend displayed during New York Fashion Week-with my nail polish! And so can you! See how butter LONDON styled the nails of the models for Erin Fetherston, Veda, and Kaelen:


Overall Look: The designer's signature feminine style had a bit of an edge. The collection consisted of flirty, feminine silhouettes with zippers, studs and texture.

Nail Design: The models weren't wearing bracelets or rings because Erin wanted the nails to be the accessory for the hands. Metallic nails mimicked the look of jewelry, lending itself to the ultimate eye-catching accessory. We used Lillibet's Jubilee, a silver metallic colour with a lilac finish that adds a feminine touch to the rock & roll vintage feel.

Details: The nails were naturally rounded for a feminine finish.

I Loathe Olives, But I Love a Dirty Martini! AKA: From Dusk Til Dawn NCLA Fall 2012

From Dusk Till Dawn-NCLA's Fall 2012 Nail Lacquer Collection

I already waxed poetic on how much I love NCLA's fabulous nail lacquers (it's here, in case you missed it)-from the packaging, to the names, and the superb formula-it's truly become one of my favorite brands. The new lacquer collection for Fall 2012 does not disappoint... once again I want every shade (I may have a problem, lovelies). But who could blame me with shades like these?

Shockingly, Amazingly GOOD!!!-AKA: LaLicious Vanilla Whipped Body Soap

LaLicious Vanilla Whipped Body Soap (get it here: http://rstyle.me/fmmgj4nade

I'm all about "smell goods," and I love bath and body products (really you should see my collection-I might be a tad bit obsessed), so I was excited to try LaLicious, though I had never heard of the brand before. I might be over stating things (but only slightly) when I say that this soap is LIFE CHANGING! After one use, I was sufficiently spoiled and looking at all other body washes in my collection in derision. Yeah, it really is THAT GOOD...

Who Knew Lettuce Could Smell This Good?!? AKA-New Italian Imports From CO Bigelow

Alghiero Campostrini Soap in Bar Silk (Seta)

I'm generally a body wash type of gal and the hubby prefers bar soap (obviously, I'm the ying to his yang). So when I got the chance to try out one of these new Italian imports from CO Bigelow, I knew that at least if it wasn't my style, someone in my home would enjoy it. Boy was I surprised when I received a selection from the Alighiero Campostrini Season Soap Collection! It smells so delicious, lathers so well, and leaves my skin feeling so soft-the hubby can stick with his Dial soap, 'cause this one is all mine!

No More Waddle!!! AKA: GMYMO with David Kirsch and LookTV

I HAD to share this week's episode of 5 Minute Quickies with David Kirsch because I KNOW I'm not the only one struggling with my upper arm area! Don't let the fact that your arms will most likely be covered up for the rest of the season keep you from working on this important area. It truly is the perfect time to get right and tight for next year. So join me on my journey to get Angela Bassett's arms!

Ever wonder how to sculpt biceps, triceps and shoulders without investing in a gym membership? In this episode of 5 Minute Quickies, fitness and wellness expert David Kirsch shows you three different types of push-ups (plus a fun trick involving two shampoo bottles) that you can do anywhere, anytime to help tone your arms into tank top-worthy shape.

I'm definitely putting these moves into action TODAY! I love this series and hope that you lovelies enjoy it too! What are your problem areas? What would you like to see covered on 5 Minute Quickies? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...

Trina Turk + YSL, Oh My! AKA: Julep Maven September It Girl Box

No doubt with Fashion Week on the brain, this month Julep collaborated with noted fashion designer Trina Turk, to create a beautiful collection of nail colors inspired by her Modernist Maverick Collection. I literally had to restrain myself, as I wanted to buy the entire collection-it is utterly perfect for the fall and with all the beautiful creme colors-it's right up my alley! I showed some self control and settled on the It Girl Box, and as usual, I am not disappointed.

The Healthier Way to Get Germ Free-AKA: Clean Well Antibacterial Products

Back to school for me signals the end of the safe haven away from germs that is our home during the blissful summer months. The lil bits (Lo and Kenzie) and I are at home all day during the week, secure from the grime and bacteria of the world (I may have slight issues with small children and their nasty, germy ways-just thinking about it skeeves me out). So when my oldest daughter, Peyton, returns to school, it means that not only is she being exposed to hoards of germs, but inevitably she's bringing them home to share with us too :(

2 in 1? Try 3 in 1!-AKA: NYC New York Color City Duets 2 in 1 Lip Color

I know the saying goes, "You get what you pay for," but sometimes there are exceptions to the rule. Don't sleep on drugstore brands! For example the City Duet 2 in 1 Lip Colors from NYC New York Color. They may retail for a mere $2.99, but considering you basically get 3 lipsticks for that price, even the biggest brand snob can stand to give these a try!

Zoe Saldana at The Words Premiere-AKA: Get the Look with John Frieda

Zoe Saldana at the premiere of The Words

I have been a fan of Zoe Saldana since she made her film debut in the ballet drama, Center Stage. She's always had a unique since of style and has carried herself well throughout her Hollywood career. Currently she can be seen in the new film, The Words, starring hot hot hottie Bradley Cooper and Olivia Wilde. She looked beyond impeccable at last night's premiere of the movie...

Curly Girls Rule The World!-AKA-Curls Hair Care at the Bronner Bros Hair Show

The Curls Hair Care Booth at the Bronner Bros Hair Show 2012

One of the most memorable booths at the Bronner Bros Hair Show was that of Curls Hair Care. It was very noticeable, not only because of its prime, corner location but also because of the lovely curly girls present , adorned in brightly colored tutus, t-shirts with the Curls logo emblazoned in sparkles, and inviting smiles (not to mention trays full of goodies).

The ladies at the booth were so friendly and adorable in their sparkly shirts, colorful tutus, and gorgeous curls!
