This might sound strange, but I met a man on Twitter.
Turns out, he is a rep for a fabulous beauty line called "Sibu Beauty". ;)
So lucky me, I was included in their promotional campaign to get the
word out about Sibu Beauty which is designed around the Sea Buckthorn fruit.
This tasty little fruit has the hallmark of the acai berry in the sense that it can
do amazing things for the human skin. I have a strong feeling that you'll be
hearing a lot more about the Sea Buckthorn fruit in the near future.
Listen, I'm no spring chicken so I reaaaaaaaally appreciate a good cleansing soap
and facial moisturizer. For years I had been using the Clinique Dramatically
Moisturizing Facial Lotion. Until now. My face is sensitive to lotions and I tend
to break out with anything on my face, especially my forehead. Lucky for me, the
"Repair & Protect" face cream is like a dream! My cheeks have never felt softer.
Another product I have to highlight is the "Revitalize & Renew" liquid supplement.
I've been drinking it in the morning with my breakfast shake and it's sooooo good!
It's almost like an intense orange juice, tangy & sweet. It adds a nice punch to my
shake, but even better, it's working on my skin from the inside.
I noticed my nails are stronger too. If you start taking all the supplements and
drink the juice, you'll actually have to CUT your nails because they're getting too long!
So I really have to thank my new Twitter buddy Peter from Sibu Beauty. I get
exposed to a lot of new products, most of which have little impact on my everyday
life. Sibu Beauty products are the exception by a wide margin. It's been a long time
since I found a product line that I'm now addicted to!

Hold on to your hats girls!
If you're interested in minimizing wrinkles, then airbrushing might be the way to go. I saw a demo that knocked my socks off and after doing a little research, I found a cool site that sells supplies.
So of course I became an affiliate! ;)
I'm passing on the info to you. As it turns out, airbrush makeup and airbrush tanning are HUGE trends in makeup and beauty products.
A lot of women are considering selling it as an service and spa and salon owners are offering airbrush makeup and airbrush tanning as a way of expanding their services.
Would you want to try it? I'd love to hear what you think about airbrush makeup and airbrush tanning!

ED HARDY CHRISTIAN AUDIGIER GOLD TANYA SATCHEL HANDBAG
This month's issue of Vogue came out with a darling Ed Hardy bag that nearly made me drool all over the glossy pages. I tried to find the exact bag, but stumbled across yet another classic example of a great Ed Hardy Bag.
Canvas is perfect for summer. All the major fashion houses have created a canvas bag for summer. I have a super cute Louis Vuitton Canvas bag that still looks as good as the day I bought it. So these days, a lot of us are stretching out our budgets and LV just isn't in the cards. But shoot, an edge-y canvas bag by Ed Hardy adds some fun and spunk to your summer wardrobe.
Strut and be "Hardy" this summer!

While doing a little online therapy the other day, I came across the kewl-ist boots ever. These Koolaburra Boots are just like my Uggs, only with A LOT of personality.
Don't get me wrong, I wear my Uggs *constantly*. It's like having my feet in bed as I go traipsing around town on errands. However, Uggs are so popular now that they don't really stand out in a crowd.
But the Koolaburra boots do! I really like the "Naughty & Nice" ones as well as the "Heart & Soul". Just as soon as I hit the lottery, I'm getting one of each. :P
So let me hear from you...do you like them? Which ones would you get?

Wow, talk about sexy! I've been working out to a killer new DVD and I'm *feelin it*, if you know what I mean. ;) I was looking for something sexy to strut in and I found these at Steve Madden's. You know, the toe is not too pointy which is great for me. Have you seen the super pointy ones? Seriously, how do women squish their feet in there?!They make my feet hurt just looking at them. Not to mention I wear a size 9, so I'd have to get at least a 12 just so I wouldn't have to walk funny. That sort of defeats the whole point of the sexy shoes, doesn't it. ;)

Now here's something we can all get behind! Ah, the classic black blazer. I picked this one as an example because I like the way it accents the waist with the one button. The effect is sleek and slimming, yet is feminine the way it shows off your curves. Remember in the 80's how boxy we all looked? Yuk...what were we thinking?!
Viva the new millennium!

Here we are in the middle of Tim Gunn's top 10 essentials and I'm busting out with the fun stuff: One trendy item under $20! Yay!
Maybe it's the sunshine today or the fact that I feel really good today that I'm in such a trendy mood! When I'm lighthearted and feeling the urge to splurge WetSeal is a fun place to indulge. And such a sale! Dresses for $16.50?! Come on! This is sheer fun and it won't break the bank. Enjoy!

There is an old expression to describe mediocrity..."Run of the mill".
When a factory produces fabric in bulk, it is used in many ways to create many things. They literally run the machines to create the fabric. While it may be nice, it's not exactly special.
What I love about BCBC as a company is that they produce fabrics with colors and patterns that are distinctly *not* run of the mill.
This little dress is a great example of #4, the day dress. The colors are so great! It can be worn with a short denim jacket if it's a little chilly, and some cute flats would make a really cute outfit to run around town, go to lunch or what the heck, go shopping!
Thanks BCBG...love ya!

The classic dress pant. Yay! We can't wear our sweats EVERY day, no matter how cold it is outside. Sometimes a girl just has to put her big girl pants and act like a woman! What better way to act the part than to suit up and show up in these beautiful black dress pants made by Joe's Jeans?
Okay, so confession time. These are not *true* dress pants (I know you fabulous ladies took one look and knew that). ;) The reason I picked these is because in my neck of the woods, California, a black denim, if it's a good quality can be considered "dress". Also, I don't work in an office where a formal dress code has to be considered, so there's that.
What I love about these particular jeans is, first and foremost, they are stretch denim. Waaaay more comfortable than regular denim pants. Secondly, for my body type, the pockets sit slightly lower, giving my bum a more rounded appearance. Woo hoo! Joe's jeans are also a good quality pant. I have some that have taken a beating and they still look as fresh as the day I bought 'em. It's all about the quality!
