Foxbrim Orange Flower Toner - velvety skin

So far every Foxbrim product I've tried has been amazing, and this toner is no exception. Unlike the toners of my youth, this is not a bottle of alcohol that if you were lucky might have some witch hazel in it that leaves your skin dry and parched. It's a gentle and soothing ph balancer that leaves your skin feeling velvety soft. After using this, my skin actually doesn't even feel like it needs a moisturizer! Using it after cleansing gets any extra dirt or gunk out of pores as well as balancing the ph of your skin since most cleansers do disrupt that balance which can cause skin problems. It balances your skin's oil production striking that perfect balance. Over time it boosts collagen production and improves skin texture.

It smells AMAZING, I would wear this as a perfume! The gentle neroli scent is beautiful and my Mister loves to nuzzle my face after I've used it. You can use this as a refresher during the day or even pour some into the tub for a relaxing, skin soothing bath. I think I need to buy a vat of this!

My Dapper Dan

I got a Super Fly Guy :-)

Clint likes to get gussied up, even for absolutely no reason at all. I was curled up on the sofa watching America's Next Top Model or something and he disappeared for about 20 minutes. Then he came back downstairs dressed like this. No reason at all other than to be a Dapper Dan. Who says only kids get to play dress up?

  The hat is a fun dress up/costume hat. It cracks me up that people left Amazon reviews saying "whah! This isn't as good as these $100 hats" Well, duh. This is for fun. Role playing, parties, etc. Not the opera. This is for silly hubbands that like to play :-)

  Now these are actually really fancy. They're ridiculously high quality. I can't believe how inexpensive they are. The packaging is really elegant and they're heavy and sturdy. The Mister was recently complaining about needing some of these because he's 6'4 and most ties run short on him. These keep his tie in place without having to buy specially made tall guy ties.

Argan Oil Hair Tip for dandruff relief and GORGEOUS hair

You can find the benefits of argan oil extolled hither and yon for everything from scraped knees to ragged cuticles to wrinkle smoothing ad infinitum. Well something that I found to be a wonderful use is for relief from dandruff.

Because I've been ill, I haven't been taking care of my scalp the way I should and soon enough found myself with the snows of Kilimanjaro. My scalp was itchy and felt almost scabby. Ew. Gnarly. So I decided to try something I hadn't done before. I took a bottle of argan oil and put it to work. I used Beautease for 3 main reasons. Because it's a really big bottle and at such a good price point, you don't feel like you're using truffle oil like ketchup. It has a flip cap, so it's perfect for getting a good amount at once with worrying about spilling it. And lastly, because of how I was using it, I didn't want the pervasive scent that some argan oils have (this one is scentless).

Normally when using on your hair you just use a few drops, but I was doing a full scalp treatment. I massaged a good amount into my head directly onto my scalp, making sure to get in between the hair to really get skin coverage. Then I took another palmful and distributed it throughout my hair itself. I have waist length hair, so how much you need depends on your hair length and thickness. I got it really good and greezy looking then left it in overnight. In the morning, my hair had soaked up so much of it that it didn't even soak into my pillowcase. My scalp felt calm and relieved. I washed my hair thoroughly doing 2 latherings. My scalp felt incredible and my dandruff was gone. My hair dried quickly and was bouncy, shiny and soft as a kitten's belly.

Ah, argan oil..... liquid gold.

This is a fantastic price point, a bottle of MorrocanOil in this same size is $66.00

Beauty Help From The Inside - Biotins - I swear by these!

A photo posted by Julie Ann Keene-Roppolo (@thebeautypirate) on
Oh thank the goddess, these actually WORK!
I've been a broken record about it, but my lupus and all the medication I take has caused my already fine hair to start coming out quite a bit and lose a lot of it's (already minimal) thickness and body. I took these for a straight month and I'm honestly amazed at what this did for my locks. My hair has become thicker, bouncier and fuller. Areas that seemed to be thinning quite a bit are filling out. I'm seriously impressed with what these did for my hair. I hate to seem vain, but my long red hair has been my glory crown ever since I quit being made fun of for having red hair as a kid :-) This is making my hair look better than it did when I was actually HEALTHY! Unlike other brands that I've used, I love that you only have to take one pill a day.

Besides your hair, biotins also help to strengthen nails, especially peeling and help your skin produce more collagen. I'd like to point out that my nails were down to the quick and would not grow and the photo above is after taking these for 3 weeks.

Luxx Health Konjac Sponges

If you've never used a konjac sponge, you need to know that they are THE BOMB. It blows my mind that something that is basically a perfectly shaped piece of vegetable root could be the best face cleanser ever. You will be amazed at how smooth, bright and exfoliated your skin is using these and after about a week of regular use your pores will become absolutely tiny. No special sauce needed, just this sponge and some water. If you still want to use cleanser with it, you just need a drop as the sponge will make it foam up like nobody's business.

You have NO EXCUSE now not to wash your face before bed because this is about as low maintenance as it gets. Get it wet. Rub it on your face. Go to bed. Boom. Done. It even gets off makeup and it's naturally ph balanced to keep your skin gorgeous without needing toner. Plus, it doesn't dry out your skin like so many cleanser can. The charcoal in it does extra pore cleansing and tightening and is ideal for blemish prone skin. Unlike the last konjac I used, this one didn't disintegrate a week after use.

On top of everything, I LOVE that they donate to a wonderful charitable organization, I like to see my money being paid forward. 10% of every purchase goes to which supplies clean water to Africa.

Nourishing Well Forskolin Coleus Giveaway

“Miracle Flower To Fight Fat”

Boosts Metabolism
Increases Weight Loss
Breaks Down Fat

What is Forskolin:

Forskolin extract is an all-natural weight loss supplement that is derived from the Indian Coleus (Coleus Forskohlii) plant, which is a member of the mint family.  It grows in the subtropical areas of India and SE Asia and has been used for thousands of years in traditional Indian medicine.

Recent Studies:

Studies have found that Forskolin is effective for weight loss because it stimulates lipolysis (breaking down of fats) in fat cells. A study of 30 overweight men was conducted whereby one group was given a daily dose of Forskolin and the other a placebo over a 12-week period. 

The Forskolin group achieved a significantly greater reduction in body fat while simultaneously experiencing an increase in lean body mass versus the placebo group.

Another recent study was conducted using six overweight women taking 25 mg of Forskolin (250 mg capsules standardized to 10% Forskolin extract) two times a day for 8 weeks. The average weight loss for the group was 10 lbs. and 8% body fat reduction.

Recent Press:

America’s favorite doctor recently featured Forskolin on his popular health and wellness television program calling it “lightning in a bottle.” He discussed the metabolic boosting effects of Forskolin and how it can be used as an all-natural weight loss supplement.

On the show he brought on a weight loss expert who claims it has helped her clients double their weight loss when used in combination with gentle exercise and a cleaned up diet. One of her clients who was “stuck” in her weight loss efforts, used Forskolin to help her shed another 20 lbs. and 4 pant sizes in a four month period.

Forskolin is a powerful weapon in your weight loss arsenal that can be added to your existing regime.

 Normally $39.98, so this is a great discount!

Francois & Mimi - my favorite brand of Bed Bath & Beyond for agoraphobics!

Yes, I got these for free to review, but I am insane for them, INSANE! All their stuff is so high quality and just plain beautiful! And let's face it, their name is fabu :-) I would buy these regardless.

Bento Box With Lunch Sack

My ex husband kept my extremely expensive bento box and man, was I po'd. Well lo and behold, I replaced it with this one that's 500 times better! It's a traditional bento box on steroids. You have three separate compartments to keep food from intermingling and it comes with well fitting lids to help with both freshness and leaks. It also keeps your workmates from killing you if you bring fish
:-) Unlike my old one, the tubs are microwaveable. It has a full set of cutlery that fits perfectly in the lid AND it comes with an insulated lunch bag to keep it all together and make transporting it easy as well as keeping your food cold and preventing leaks! Bonus? It's way more inexpensive than many lesser models on the market.

I love this breadbox. It's good and sturdy and the brushed steel and design gives it a definitive art deco look that's super stylish. The Mister pointed out that the reason he loves it is because unlike our old bread box, this one's lid open in a way that it doesn't snag or get stuck on the stuff inside. Another awesome product from them, as usual.



Talk about useful! These things, like everything else I've gotten from Francois et Mimi, are sturdy and well made and of a very high visual quality as well. From a design standpoint they're very tasteful but they're hardy enough to withstand daily use. Also excellent for getting a big ol mug of hot chocolate on.  Lead free and microwaveable, these have become a daily addition to our kitchen.


I can't believe something this high quality is so inexpensive! I saw a similar set at Target that I lusted after but just could not fork over the $40. And I think that was only a set of 4. Ice cream is only the beginning. they're perfect for soup, small salads, cereal, oatmeal....  They're just the right size to keep your eyes from being bigger than your stomach. They're microwaveable, which I have done multiple times with no problems (use common sense- they will be warm; ceramic conducts heat.) They look so cheerful and pretty, even stacked in the cabinet. I loved that they had cardboard inserts between each piece in the package to keep them safe and sound (despite USPS's best efforts LOL) Such a bright spot in every meal.


This thing is truly stunning, for sure. You do have to be careful with it being glass; since it's a large size you need to be a little daintier using since it's just plain a larger amount of hot coffee. One star off for the nonexistent padding, my first one came broken. The company's customer service is fantastic though, they had a new one at my doorstep (VERY well padded! LOL) within literally days. I imagine this is something that will addressed. Not only does french press coffee TASTE better but it presents well for guests. We both came into this relationship with french presses, but they were all those teeny ones that barely make enough for 2 mugs worth- not the greatest way to keep guests or rabid coffee drinkers happy. Papi is HUGE and makes the perfect amount! (Yes, I did nickname it.)

These water bottles are FANTASTIC!!!!!!

A Set of 2 20-Ounce Double Wall Bottles for the cost of one, normally

I can put a cold drink in before my 1 and 1/2 commute to work and it will still be cold. If you put ice in it, it will last for hours more. If I put chilled water in it and take it with me into the bookstore at the library, after 4 hours it will no longer be COLD but it's still below room temperature. They're super sturdy and are a breeze to clean with one exception, the straw. With the built in straw, if you use anything but water- clean IMMEDIATELY. I'd recommend including a straw brush with the bottle. And don't be an idiot and put orange juice in it. YOINKS! It's metal, honey. 

The Mister is now in love with these travel coffee mugs. First of all just like the water bottles, you get two for the price of one. The quality is second to none and I think the extended handle is pretty snazzy looking. You can actually hook it over stuff or shove it in your pocket if you need a free hand. The best part, the stopper lid is leakproof so you can use it as an impromptu drink shaker without the fear of flying protein shake in your hair!
