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!

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?)!

Got 5 Minutes? Put It Towards Your Butt!-AKA GMYMO (With David Kirsch and LookTV)

Alright, alright! I know you lovelies know that I'm a mommy to 3 girls: 2 of which are under 5, and one that is obsessed with breastfeeding. So I don't have to tell you that time is a very precious commodity and I very rarely get to spend any on myself. That makes my quest to get fit a little bit more difficult. That's why I love the idea of these new 5 minute workouts from David Kirsch and LookTV on YouTube (just what I need, another reason to love YouTube)!

LookTV is a new fashion and beauty channel on YouTube brought to you by the creators of Project Runway. They've enlisted fitness and wellness expert and celebrity trainer David Kirsch to share the same sculpting secrets he's used when training clients like Heidi Klum, Liv Tyler, and Dr. Oz. In this premiere episode, David shares quick tips and tricks for targeting the hips and butts (just in time to get ready for those form fitting sweater dresses). These toning moves can be implemented at anytime and anywhere. So enjoy lovelies, make sure to go to YouTube and subscribe to LookTV. And join me in getting your yummy mummy on!

Ciao, XxO

Carol's Daughter: Transition 1-2-3 featuring Solange Knowles

Remember the sneak peek for the Carol's Daughter ad featuring the new Transition 1-2-3 Kit and Solange Knowles? Well, here is the full length version (via Sephora's YouTube Channel)...


Solange is swiftly becoming one of those ladies that I look forward to seeing on the red carpet at events and in magazine spreads. She's fashionable, quirky, authentic, and embraces her individuality-all things that I find admirable. I think she is a perfect fit as a spokesperson for Carol's Daughter!

What do you lovelies think of the ad? Are you transitioning? And if so, will you be trying out the Transition 1-2-3 Kit from Carol's Daughter? Have you tried it already? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...

Carol's Daughter Chocolat Shampoo and Conditioner

I saw this video on YouTube on Sephora's channel and thought it was a great opportunity to share my experience with the Chocolat Smoothing Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner.

Chocolat Smoothing Sulfate Free Shampoo, Conditioner, and Smoothing  Blow Dry  Cream

The shampoo and conditioner smell FABULOUS! Both were oh so creamy, and even though the shampoo is sulfate free (a huge plus) it lathered wonderfully. I did feel an immediate difference in my frazzled tresses after using the shampoo; it really did smooth my hair and left it soft and silky. The conditioner was like chocolate icing on the cake. It felt rich, but did not weigh down my curls. It left them feeling bouncy and luxurious. I loved the scent so much that I left a bit of the conditioner in to serve as a sort of leave in conditioner, and it worked beautifully in that capacity. Major bonus: the hubby couldn't stop smelling my hair!

I was so impressed with the shampoo and conditioner (and after seeing the results in the video), I definitely want to try the Blow Dry Cream. It seems like the perfect product to use when I want to switch to a straight style! There's actually a really great starter set that will let you try all 3 products at a reasonable price...

Chocolat Smoothing Collection 3-Piece Starter Set $24 at Sephora.com

I realize I'm a little late on the train, but the more exposure I have with Carol's Daughter products, the more I love them! What's your experience with the brand? What are your fave products from the hair care line? And have you had a chance to try any of the skin care products? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...

Ciao, XxO


PS: PR provided me with the shampoo and conditioner to try. I was not paid to do a review and all of the opinions stated are 100% honest and my own :)

Sephora Presents Josie Maran Argan Oil

I've written a post about about Josie Maran and her growing family, her charitable work, and my love of oils (including Argan oil), so when I stumbled across this video on YouTube, it only seemed fitting that I post it here as well...

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/3oA1Sp8z3eM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>iframe>

Isn't here daughter adorable! I'm pretty much addicted to her 100% Argan Oil; I use it as part of night time ritual and it has made a real difference in my skin. I was truly skeptical about using oil on my oily skin, but trust me, it works! If you're on the fence about trying it, Sephora has a trial size vial for $14. It contains enough product to make you a believer!

There is also a full line of Argan Oil infused cosmetics, including an instant, self adjusting, oil absorbing powder foundation (in a gorgeous rose gold compact)...

Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker  Powder Foundation SPF 20 in  Med/Dark

A convenient, multi-purpose lip and cheek stain...

Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain in Tango

And even an Argan Oil Hair Serum...

If you couldn't tell already, I'm a fan of the line. It's truly worth checking out the next time you head to Sephora (because you know you were heading there anyway!). What products are in your beauty arsenal that you were originally skeptical about, but now can't live without? What do you highly recommend? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and tell me all about it! Until next time...

Ciao, XxO
