Hello dear friends! Oh my gorgeous pals, I rarely ever show my toddler; the ever delicious Mr. Love Bug, though today when this sample arrived to the blog he insisted that this product was for him and his new haircut!

Playful by Got2B a Schwarzkopf family product line is repackaged .




The fun comes in that today we went to Arizona Hair Co. and met with my hairstylist Star for a wee haircut in the styling of the 2009 season of David Beckham hair because he is continuing in his soccer class and needs to have "soccer'ish" hair.

I would love for my son to grow out his hair but lately with the Arizona summer heat and soccer practice mixed with swim lessons the long hair and Bieber'ish haircut is not a good thing! So we have this new cut. There it is finished and polished into place with some 'Playful' by Got2B. The creme putty like consistency of the product will be easy to grab a fingerful and quickly style his hair for camp and practice. Try some! You just may like it for yourself and for your toddlers too!

Day of prayer for the Gulf States by Governors

**I am so excited about a day of prayer and fasting! Join me! I dare ya!

Emergency Prayer Alert: Gulf State Governors Call for Prayer Tomorrow—SUNDAY

From the desk of Steve Shultz:

It is extremely rare that governors of any state, much less all the gulf states, agree in prayer and call for a day of fasting for a problem—even a SET of problems that they cannot solve. Not only is this oil spill unstoppable by man, but a harsh weather system may be headed for the Gulf which would cause further damage.

The oil must be stopped and beyond that, a tropical depression would cause man to halt all of their own efforts for up to two weeks. Please join with the governors in these gulf states in a day of prayer and fasting.

The Chavdas wrote a recent article on the Gulf Oil Spill (http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word/8861) that my good friend James Goll shared on his website as well. I found it interesting that James shared this concerning Bob Jones: "I talked with Seer Prophet Bob Jones and he stated that the Lord showed him in 1997, that after Oral Roberts would go home to be with the Lord, there would be an oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico that only the "thumb of God" could stop."

As the Chavdas shared in their recent article: "We want to call forth the merciful thumb of God to be released to plug that hole in Jesus Name!"

Hi pals, real quick tell yourself that you look beautiful! Remind yourself that today you look exactly like your gorgeous self and no photoshop picture of a celebrity is going to change your mind about how good you really look!

Now, yes, just like yesterday's post; I am still busier than the one legged man in the jump roping contest and all the travel is making things "unique".

A sample from Bremmen labs came in a few weeks ago, ( along with the Butt Lift in a Box sample...which I have yet to test but plan to so stay tuned...) and I rarely if ever get a zit? A pimple? A blemish even. So while I wait to get one ( not that I really want one) here's a little blurb from Jersey Shores Snooki. Enjoy! See you out there my friends! Say hello when you do!

Spin pin cure for boring ponytail hair?

Which Part of Your Body Will Give Away Your Age First?

Does your anti-aging routine stop at your neck? See how your body could reveal your real age


Which Part of Your Body Will Give Away Your Age First?

This is a TotalBeauty.com skin care article

You work hard and play hard, but it will catch up to you if you don't take care of your skin -- even from the neck down. But which part of your body will reveal your age first? Find the answer in this quiz, then find out how to fight back.

Take quiz


Hey pals, I am literally busier than a one legged man in a jump rope contest and could seriously use a "spin pin". I haven't tried this though I am guilty of always throwing my hair in a boring ponytail so I can easily go from tri-training to work.
If you've used it, let me know! If not, read below and try it!


Everyone’s talking about the NEW Simple Styles™ collection from Goody®! These clever little styling tools and instructional guides assist women in achieving a salon-inspired hairstyle at home!



Here’s what consumers are saying:



“I bought the Spin Pins…and I have to say a huge THANK YOU!!! I have such difficult hair that I really can't do anything with. I usually use half a pack of bobby pins if not a whole pack and these are a godsend to me. I usually end up pulling my hair back into a boring ponytail, an added bonus is that my stray hairs are corralled as well. I can't wait until my hair is even longer when I can use the Modern Updo maker! Again a grateful thank you! This is something I've been waiting to be invented and put on the market!”



“I just wanted to let your guys know thank you for coming out with the spin pins they are the best thing ever, love them.”


“I am writing to say that I absolutely LOVE the Spin Pin! Thanks for a great product!”


“Just picked up some Spin Pins today! They are absolutely fabulous! I think next time I’m at the store I’m going to stock up!”


“Spin Pin! Lovin’ It!”

Simple Styles is available at Walmart, Target, CVS, Duane Reade and Walgreens nationwide.

Hello my friends! Okay, I have a chance to share this amazing line of skincare with you. As you know, normally I try everything on myself as a form of skin guinnea pig. Though, this time; it would not be fair to you the reader or the product for me to test it on me because occassionally around the time of the month I get a blemish and even then, it's not worth a mention.

If I'm going to test something I want it to really be a test! So, if you are interested in sampling and testing then writing in with photos about how the product worked for you, please comment! I will pick one and send the goods over, then you try and respond back with the details of scent, texture, effectiveness, and your experience.
Sound good? Then read on and comment!


There is no cure for acne but CellCeuticals CellGenesis Regenerative Skin Treatment can help prevent breakouts while simultaneously treating aging!

This is all made possible with the exclusive, breakthrough, and patent pending GFP (Growth Factor Peptide) Cellular Complex which contains retinol, an ingredient commonly used to treat acne. Retinol helps pores free of cellular build-up, one of the main causes of breakouts!

Along with retinol, the GFP Cellular Complex also contains antioxidants and lipopeptides in a nanoemulsion delivery system that targets skin aging at the cellular level. In just two weeks, skin looks firmer and remarkably radiant, and visible lines and wrinkles are dramatically diminished!

What makes you beautiful?

TotalBeauty.com
Test Your Salon Etiquette

Take this true/false quiz to see how good your hair manners are


Test Your Salon Etiquette

This is a TotalBeauty.com hairstyles article

Should you tell your stylist if you don't like your haircut? How much should you tip? Can you expect to get a free bang trim? Take this quiz to get all these burning questions and more answered.

Take quiz


Hey gals pals!
I have a quick question for you today: what makes you beautiful? I would like to hear from you, either post your comment or email me and share a bit about what it is about yourself that makes you personally feel beautiful.

I ask this because I'm involved in some charities, fundraisers and benefits and I walk between the seriously abused and the seriously in need of an attitude check. Each lady has value and each lady is beautiful but sometimes neither: the poorest or the richest realize or see their real beauty and worth.

Some put labels on themselves with words and some use labels from department store brands to make themselves feel beautiful and that's awesome if it's workin' for you. Though after labels fade and sizes no longer fit, then what is it that makes you feel beautiful?

I always seem to be at war with myself whether it's in my head or closet at any given day or time. Though the skinny pants fitting, freshly colored roots that have not gone awry, or the most amazing pedicure are not what make me beautiful.

I am beautiful because I have Jesus in my heart. On my ugly days when I have done something screwy or said something awful then polished off a pepperoni jalapeno sausage pizza in one sitting and hate myself for it; He is always there with his precious Blood to wash me clean again and remind me that it's my heart that He is after. He wants to know me, and you, for who we are not for what we look like.

So I encourage you today, that if you haven't talked to Him lately, to simply begin a wee conversation with Him. Don't know where to start? Just say Hi Jesus, it's ______, (put your name in here)and let your day unroll before Him. He is the best listener, comforter and counselor and I can promise that you will feel better, and quite honestly beautiful.

Come see me tonight at City of Grace in Mesa for the opening night of Prayer Quake. It's free and a real hootenanny!

Nature's Gate sunless tanner

Anti-Aging Tips for Your Body

Get advice from the pros who know on how to keep those wrinkles at bay


Anti-Aging Tips for Your Body

This is a TotalBeauty.com body article

This total body guide to anti-aging will teach you how to keep things firm and fabulous.

Read guide

Okay, wait til you see the before and afte pics on this product! I love that it doesn't smell chemically like other brands, and it does give a nice brown hue to the skin instead of a orangey one.
I encourage you to familiarize yourself with a self tanner, find a brand you like and maybe even try this one. Do you know why? Because skin cancer is on the rise in young twentysomethings and it's not from over exposure at the beach or in my town at the Salt River tubing party; it's from the proliferation of indoor tanning beds.
Here is a patch of bare skin ready to be "self tanned".

So do yourself and your skin a favor, try some Nature's Gate ( get it at Sprouts!) sunless tanner.









This is a second coat of the Nature's Gate sunless tanner being applied to a patch of pale and bare skin.

Here's a quickie how to apply sunless tanner and not look funky:
1. Exfoliate the area, or your whole body! I recommend using the scrubby gloves that are like a dollar at Walmart. Apply a scrub to the scrubby gloves, this can be something lovely like Quick Tan sunless tanning prep scrub or the St. Ives apricot scrub which I find to be too harsh for my face but great for my knees, elbows and heels.

2. Apply a paraben free lotion to the bendy parts of you: meaning toe knuckles, elbows, knees, ankles so that the lotion fills in the wee skin folds.

3. Apply and rub in the self tanner and stand in a big X until it's dry. This could be a minute, could be five. The point is, the more you move while the product still feels tacky to your touch the more chance you have of streaking.

Buy a spray kind for your back or have some help. :) Enjoy it friends!
p.s. Thank you so much to all the kind comments about your Dads for the Tim McGraw fragrance set giveaway. I know 5 people are going to be smellin' real good real soon!

Here's two coats and one hour of applying and letting dry then reapplying the sunless tanner from Nature's Gate:

Ah, now we have it. After one hour, and two applications I have a wee patch of tanned skin in the shape of a heart somewhere on my body.

Remember your skin when it comes to the sun!

See products


Sun protection! Before you click through to see which brands are best, here is my two cents: When you buy Banana Boat Sport waterproof spf 50 from Costco on coupon, making the two large bottles and extra grease stick a total of $8-it's a good bang for the buck!
I use it daily to run in and it is sweat proof. Now I do have to reapply while at Sunsplash and I do get a wee bit pink on the back. It could be the length of time we are there, the standing with a double raft over my head going up a slippery hill to get to the next waterslide, or just my fair skin; but I feel it's worth the money and I love having a Costco coupon to reduce the price.

It's working for me and the Mancub, maybe it will work for your family too! Enjoy!
