Going Green!

I'm super excited about my little find this weekend.  While shopping for shampoo I ran across reasonably priced eye shadows from ULTA.  Now that winter is over I thought I'd try something  that would give me a fresh, but glam look.  I am happy to report that green is now my favorite color in eye shadow.  It looks amazing.  Very impressed.

Making A List And Checking It Twice!

I love the holiday season.  It is by far the best time of year.  Just this week the City where I reside decorated the annual Christmas Tree in town square.  Taking my leisurely trip to the mall, I found the stores already knee deep in the thick of decorating for holiday season.  I thought it would be a excellent time to look around for great holiday gift ideas for under $100.00.  Getting ahead of the crowded stores that will commence in a few short weeks is my game plan.   

Philosophy's Garden Party Shower & Gelee-$36.00
Crabtree & Evelyn: India Hicks Island Living Diffuser $65.00

Great Arrivals: Holiday Christmas Wine Gift Basket $52.99

Carol's Daughter-Beauty by Nature!

As women we often forget to take time for ourselves.  It is a good way to give back to yourself the gift of rejuvenation and relaxation. Women are more susceptible to stress-related diseases, so it is critical that we learn to find time for ourselves.  I don't believe that there is a woman alive that does not enojy pampering herself from head to toe every now and then no matter the age. I support this idea and it is important that we do so; without guilt. You have your own life and your emotional and physical body needs care.  So find some time to pamper yourself.  I love those moments when I can relax and unwind listening to the sounds of Kenny G (Rhythm & Romance).  Carol's Daughter products are a great way to begin your pampering routine.
