"Spray It Forward" with Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

This sponsored post was written while participating in my partnership with Vaseline and One2One Network.

I have long suffered from dry skin...and really have done nothing about it.
But I am getting older and I must take action!.
It seems simple enough, right?
You have dry skin you use lotions.
No biggie, right?
Well, I am always in a hurry...always rushed...
due to my time management issues.
So when I saw the Vaseline Spray &Go Moisturizer commercial with the lady
who sprays her self down and gets dressed in like "2 seconds,"
I thought "Hey! This is made for me!"

Three Ways to Embellish Leather Cuffs with Avocados! (And a GIVEAWAY!!!)

I am never one to back away from a challenge
(99% of the time anyway).
I was sent a lovely package of Avocados from Mexico...
and my first reaction was guacamole (because I could live on it)...
but then I thought what else can I create with The Amazing Avocado.
So of course, logically I came to the conclusion to make some jewelry.
Yep...I said jewelry!

I had a zillion ideas and was bouncing them off of my friends and then,
the next day one of my friends told me she had a dream about my avocados...
and then these very cool leather cuff styles were born!
These are Haas Avocados from Mexico and they know for their green-black pebbly skin -
 this inspiration for my jewelry!
 Seriously would you guess that these are avocados?

Seeking the Secret to Beautiful Hair! Clairol Professional Review and Giveaway

I am perpetually hair challenged.
I made peace with the curly waves I possess a long time ago
(as a young girl I DREAMED of shiny straight hair).
In fact I grew to love them, but just as I did, the need
(OK, and want)
for color and highlights came along and
then there may be a few gray hairs to cover up...
and then there is all that pregnancy does to your hair
and just growing older in general.


I have tried almost everything...almost...
and yes I have paid up to $50 for a bottle of shampoo
(and let's not forget the conditioner to go with it).
I am not proud of that moment...
but am willing to face my ridiculousness.

I have a great hair stylist and to compliment that really need a great hair care line to use at home. I like to be able to wash my hair and let it dry naturally, so the curl and waves come out all on their own.  Easy-peasy for my busy schedule.

Recently I had the opportunity to try out the Clairol Professional line. I received the full line of Care and Styling Collection to try for a few weeks. Clairol Professional debuted this Care & Styling collection to provide color safe professional products at an affordable price. It features PRO4PLEX: Pro Technology, Pro Grade, Pro Results, and Pro Heritage.
Clairol Professional has three Care collections: Repair, Smooth and Curl, and two Styling products: Volume Mousse and Shaping Gel and is customized Radialux™ technology targets areas where extra care is needed for luminous shine from roots to ends.

I was especially interested in the Care products. Here is a bit about how it breaks down:
• REPAIR: Ideal for dry, damaged hair. Helps smooth to repair and condition dry, damaged hair and replenishes moisture to leave hair strong and conditioned with incredible shine.
• SMOOTH: Ideal for frizzy hair. Fights frizz and sleeks hair even after one application and leaves it shiny and smooth.
• CURL: Ideal for naturally curly hair. Gives curls amazing shine and definition.


There are also styling products to compliment the care line:
STYLING:
• VOLUME MOUSSE: Provides extra strong hold, giving fullness and body for all day volume.
• SHAPING GEL: Holds, defines and accentuates any style, while washing out easily.


I tried all of the products, but found for my hair and personal styling preferences, the Curl products were my absolute favorite. This chart made it super easy to see what might work best on my hair and for your too.
 


Clairol has a fabulous duo of CELEBRITY STYLIST BRAND AMBASSADORS:
Torsten Witte, Hair Stylist: Torsten’s work spans celebrity hair styling, editorial shoots, concert stages, movie sets and advertising campaigns. He has earned a long list of A-list clientele and his work frequently appears in top-tier publications.

Kiyah Wright, Colorist: Kiyah works with artists in the film, TV and music industry such as Ciara, Jennifer Hudson and Gabrielle Union. Kiyah’s work can be seen in top fashion magazines and is frequently featured on-camera on hit television shows. When not on-set, Kiyah works with a loyal client base at the Warren-Tricomi Salon in Los Angeles.


Since I cannot have an individual consultation with these amazing stylists...I have a few questions for them:
  • How do you keep hair healthy when using blow dryers, straighten irons and curling irons? 
  • Any ideas for taming this random grey hairs on my head? I find the greys to be thick and wiry and very distracting (and at least for me...not flattering), as they tend to not take the color well or hold it for very long?
  • What is he best way to keep your color/highlights fresh or even maintain them between visits to the salon?
  • What is the number one worst thing ladies do to our hair that damages it and how can we prevent it?

I truly loved the way the Clairol Professional line made my hair feel and "behave."

Ice Cream Memories - Frozen Treat Social GIVEAWAY

If I could, I would live on ice cream.
Just telling ya how it is.
I love all kinds and flavors and mixtures and forms of it.
Oh I cannot resist a Frozen Sweet Treat!

Recently I made my kids very happy.
(I try to do this occasionally)
By participating in the Frozen Treat Social Sweepstakes promotion,
We headed to the grocery store to try some new frozen treats.

Oh, just wait...you have the opportunity - no 2 opportunities! - to win a set of coupons for your own sweet treats here and via the Frozen Sweet Treat Sweepstakes!
The Frozen Sweet Treat Sweepstakes end 9/19 - so hurry over to enter!

Each day a set of coupons is being given away and
there is a Grand Prize  - a year's worth of coupons for frozen treats.
Just go to

We had fun with in the freezer section!!
And you know what is crazy...
I never realized I had so many memories tied to frozen treats.
I  am sure my kids never Imagined just buying frozen treats
would send me into a nostalgic rant and
who knows what the people at the grocery store think!


 So want to hear some of my crazy memories...

I remember buying fudgsicles off the ice cream truck
(Oh I wish there were more ice creams trucks).
Really, is there anything better than hearing that sweet tinging music playing.
I swear we could hear it from miles away.
We'd grab out change and just wait, and then enjoy a fudgsicle in the shade.

***************************
My mom and I (and my brother and the girl of the week) would buy multiple flavors of our favorite ice cream every Wednesday night when my Dad was at work and eat them in front of the TV watching Beverly Hills 90210and Melrose Place.  
 
*********************
Maybe my favorite, the one that I have passed on to my kids...
My Dad loves Neapolitan ice cream - give him any choice, that is what he picks, I grew up with it in the house. But you really cannot eat Neapolitan just the way it is...you have to wait until it melts "just enough" so you can swirl that chocolate, strawberry vanilla yumminess into a creamy bowl of goodness. Now, when we buy Neapolitan, my kids call it Papa Ice cream and insist on doing the same thing.

A Little Aloha at Home with Gain

I may have mentioned that I was in Hawaii a few weeks ago.
And I may be a little obsessed with "island life."
Add caption

Every time...severy single time I go to Maui I come home
and want to redecorate my house and make everything island-like.
I want Hawaiian floral prints, palm trees, lava flows (that's a drink peeps!).
I want my house to be full of the scents of Hawaii too.
http://instagr.am/p/LhNqR8F3QF/

I want pineapple, coconut sunscreen, plumeria, and hibiscus - any and all reminders of Maui! Little island reminders that I can carry around all day with me and even go to sleep with at night.

Yep, I am obsessed...someone must have known this.
As soon as I returned from my trip, I received an email from One2One Network asking if I would like to try one of the new scents from Gain...


There are so many and they all smell amazing...
but then I saw it...
Hawaiian Aloha and I HAD-TO-HAVE-IT!
The pineapple and coconut scent was calling my name!

did have the opportunity to check out the other fabulous scents like

Sunflower and Sunshine
that evokes the feeling of walking through a garden

and
Dazzle and Shine
with white flower and citrus scent

Be sure to head over to Gain to see all of the amazing scents!




BUT I was drawn to the Hawaiian Aloha....
I was so excited to wash my sheets and my towels and
my vacation clothes in Hawaiian Aloha....

There is nothing as magical as the Hawaiian Island and for those of us who cannot live there, being able to bring home a little of the magical scents of the islands is a dream.


Every time I do the laundry, the scent of Gain's Hawaiian Aloha
takes me back to Maui  and our wonderful experiences in the Hawaiian Islands.
How can you beat that!?

Follow Gain on Facebook and Twitter 
to keep to to date on all the "anything but ordinary scents."
