Turn Around, Bright Eyes......

If our eyes are the windows to our souls, are souls are looking pretty tired. So reawaken with ELASTIderm Eye Treatments by Obagi, which will help you stay forever young on both the outside and in. With celeb fans like Ashley Judd, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jennifer Aniston, it’s no wonder Obagi is a leader in skin health around the world, and one of their newest prescription-strength systems is ELASTIderm Eye Treatment.

Obagi’s patented Penetrating Therapeutics technology drives the treatment deep into your skin – two weeks after you start the routine, you’ll see long-lasting results. Work it into your current skincare routine easily; just apply a few dots around your eyes at sunup and sundown. It’s even produced as both a cream and a gel so you can choose what’s right for you based on your preferences and unique skincare needs. Go on and get glowing again with ELASTIderm!

Check out Kokokahn's Chakra oils! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kokokahn products, and Tracy's expertise with aromatherapy is stunning. I recently raved about her Love Potion No. 9 oil and massage bar......

Chakras & Aromatherapy

Chakras are the subtle energy centers of our body. There are 7 main Chakra centers that correspond to our physical, emotional and spiritual well being.  The goal is to keep them  balanced for optimal health.

Check Out Our Chakra Oils Here.

Each circle in the picture above represents one of the Chakras.  Essential oils used in aromatherapy can help maintain balance.  Below is a description of the bottom 3 chakras with supporting essential oils in italics. 

Root Chakra - Stay grounded in the Present focusing on releasing deep seated anger and emotions.
Vetiver:  Grounds and protects.  Unites body and spirit from Root to Crown Chakra
Sandalwood:  Supports meditation. Reduces irritation and anger

Sacral Chakra - Center of creativity.  Sexual and emotional centers.
Ylang Ylang:  Promotes sensual awakening
Peppermint:  Stimulates new ideas and creativity
Solar Plexus Chakra - The source of our personal power.  Protect one's self confidence, self-image and overall attitude.  Stressful events affect this Chakra the most.
Geranium:  Protects from disturbing energy
Sweet Basil:  Energetic protection.  Strengthens self confidence

I've got this lip balm, and it's so smooth and creamy and the scent is fantastic.

Foodzie is a gourmet, small batch food subscription service that I have fallen madly, deeply and passionately in love with. For $29.95 a month, you get to choose from generally three different curated theme boxes. The value of what you get always wildly exceeds the cost, and for those with a passion for food, this is an awesome way to try new things. 

The Breakfast In bed box contained -
  Inna Jam Organic Polka Raspberry Jam (10 oz) 
Michele's Granola- Original Granola (12 oz) 
Fat & Juicy- Bloody Mary Mix (8 oz) 
Freddy Guys Filberts- Hazelnut Pancake Mix (22 oz) 
Crown Maple Syrup- Medium Grade Maple Syrup (1.7 oz)

Fake It, Don't Bake It - GIVEAWAY!

As an an unofficial albino, I would just look SILLY with a fake tan, but for those of you who can do it, I recommend going the fake route. Gone are the days where you come out looking like Snooki (no offense, Snooksters, but most folks DON'T want to look like an Oompah Loompah.) In honor of helping you get ready for summer, I'm giving away a grab bag of fake tanning products!

Go Go Girlfriend, Come Back Back!

Of all the subscription boxes out there, GoGo Girlfriend was possibly my favorite. Every month was an AWESOME deal, and their Deluxe boxes were ridiculously awesome values. Not only that, but you could buy full sized items in their shop at big discounts off of retail. So OF COURSE they had to go under. The store is still open so they haven't officially gone under, but they aren't doing the boxes anymore. A few months ago I received the following email message " We have undergone an ownership and management change and will resume shipping early next week.
We will be back on track beginning March "   That was in response to my query about an outstanding order. I can only hope that the getting back on track thing is true and not just BS, cause i'd seriously be willing to give them another shot. They never screwed me over, so no biggie. I just miss them!
