I hope you’ll join myself and Boots Beauty for a fun Twitter party on Thursday, March 27th at 7-8pm EST. We’ll be discussing eyebrows, beauty, and more! Just follow @beautyjunkies and @bootsbeautyusa, and use #ArchMadness. I’ll be giving away several prizes that you won’t want to miss!

Some of my fave eyebrow/lash products we’ll discuss…

  • No7 Fanomenal Lash Serum — Fuller, thicker and darker lashes after just eight weeks with No7 Fanomenal Lash Serum. The unique blend of ingredients helps improve the quality of the growth of eyelashes. When used daily, 82% of women saw an overall noticeable improvement in their lashes.
  • No7 Lash & Brow Perfector — No7 Lash & Brow Perfector provides defined lashes and brows all day long. The gel-like conditioning formula gives natural definition, without color, to the lashes while also taming and setting eyebrows. A specially designed brush with long bristles on one end for lashes and shorter bristles on the other hand for brows disperses the lightweight gel for perfectly defined eyes.
  • No7 Beautiful Brows Pencil — (available in Brown, Blonde, and Black) This defining eye pencil helps ‘fill in’ brows. It has its own brush which helps to tame and groom the brows.
  • Botanics Eyebrow Pencil — (available in Medium Brown) The Power of Plants! This Soft Eyebrow Pencil Contains Skin-Conditioning Jojoba Oil. It’s armed with a brush, helping to define the perfect brows to frame your face.

I look forward to chatting with you on Thursday night! Bring your eyebrow and beauty questions!

7 Great Things I Would Have Missed Had I Not Attended BlogHer ’11


Last month, I attended BlogHer 2011 in absolutely beautiful San Diego, and the weather and location could not have been more perfect. There was so much to do and see—at times, it was almost sensory overload! Between the expo floor, the sessions, the parties, and the beautiful city that I couldn’t get enough of, I came away with so much—both mentally and physically. I had experiences that I wouldn’t have had elsewhere, and I was fortunate enough to be introduced to some brand-spankin’ new products and experiences (and some that were just new to me). Check these out!

Eufora Powder Lift

Powder Lift is a dream come true for fine-haired babes like myself. You shake out this very finely milled powder that’s made from aloe, silica, panthenol, and soy protein into your hand. A little goes a long way! It has a cooling feeling on contact, and you can either rake it through your hair with your fingers, or sprinkle it directly on your roots for INSTANT lift and volume. Another feature of this miracle product is that you can add it to other styling products—like mousse or gel, for added oomph!  (eufora.net for locations)

Beautisol Spray Tan

I was SO excited to have the opportunity to be spray-tanned by the Self Tanning Queen herself, Sinead Norenius. Sinead is the brains and beauty behind this popular self-tanning product line that features a unique scent technology that cuts down on that foul self-tanning odor. The Beautisol spray tan formula is still rolling out in salons nationwide, so ask for it demand it at your local salon! In the meantime, you can still get the perfect faux glow with Sinead’s at-home products; my favorite is the All-Seasons Glow. You might even recognize Sinead from HSN, where her line continues to sell out during her appearances—because it’s just that good! (beautisol.com)

Mama Mio Lucky Legs Cooling Serum

I walked so much during the four days I was in San Diego, that by day two—it did not matter what shoes I wore, my feet and legs literally hated me. There were times they were so swollen that it was embarrassing. It didn’t even matter what shoes I wore! I tried ballet flats, flip flops, wedges—you name it. I could have worn 6-inch stilettos at that point; they hurt so badly that it didn’t even make a difference anymore. At a small after-hours pampering party, I was introduced to Lucky Legs Cooling Serum by Jill from Mama Mio. She took the time to give me a leg and foot massage with this magical spearmint, chamomile, aloe vera, and yarrow anti-fatigue serum—which was just what the doctor ordered! Not only did I feel some physical relief from the pain, some of the swelling went down and I slept much better that night as a result. Leave it to me to think that Mama Mio was just for pregnant women, but newsflash for me—it’s not! Mama Mio has an entire line of products for those with and without child!

Peek Inside Nordstrom’s Newest Beauty Gift With Purchase!


When I was a young’un, one of my first big girl jobs was at Nordstrom. I was the manager of another department, and I constantly got caught hanging out with the girls in cosmetics instead. Let’s just say—I wasn’t the best manager. I heard my name paged back to my own department more times than I care to remember! I was always in-the-know and hip to what was hiding in drawers before gift with purchases and special purchases were made available to the public, and my bank account and I were never on good terms. But this gift with purchase right here—it blows the GWPs of my Nordies past away!

From August 8th-14th, this swanky little faux croc number is yours, free with any $125 cosmetics or fragrance purchase. These are the goooooood samples, the deluxe ones! And just how cute is that baby foundation brush?  [Read more...]
