Oh this mask is lovely and couldn't have possible come at a better time!

It has been a very busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend and I am ready for some rest and relaxation from all the fun having!

This mask is soft, relaxing, comforting to the skin and has a light aromatherapy scent to it.

I applied a light coat on my face and neck and just laid back as my skin drank in the mask. My skin looked firmer after wards? Or maybe it was the short nap?

Now I have used it once and plan to apply at least two more times consecutively to give the mask a chance to work deeply on me.

It's a visible instant lift mask that tones and relaxes skin witha reduction of expression lines and a profoudn reoxygenation of the tissues. Or so Comfort Zone says...if I had some dermacyte oxygenating serum left I could really be lifted!

I liked it and think that the Comfort Zone Glorious Skin Visible Lifting Tensor Mask would make a great holiday stocking stuffer, gift under the tree or menorah and just good to have in your beauty routine at home in case you need it to refresh your look after all the parties and shopping and ho ho ho'ing!

I love going to the movie and having theatre popcorn.

My blog assistant and I tasted the smoked cheddar cheese flavor but there is also:

-aged white cheddar

-chili con queso ( I think that is next for me!)

-sea salt


-kettlecorn and movie theatre flavors!

BLACK FRIDAY: Goody gives you a Kardashian style pony to shop with!

Your Beauty CliffsNotes

These easy, trusty tips will have you covered day and night all through fall

Your Beauty CliffsNotes

This is a TotalBeauty.com beauty tips article

Here are some autumn skin care suggestions as well as seasonal day and night makeup looks.

Read cheat sheet

Hello Black Friday! I'm currently out on assignment and the "interns" Shadrach & Abednego are in charge of the studio!
Remember today only you can get a $10 haircut at any Arizona Hair Co salon! Go see Star Flores at the Tempe Marketplace salon for some awesome holiday style! (www.arizonahairco.com to find a salon near you!)

Speaking of style, a Kardashian inspired pony tail is perfect to be shopping the Black Friday sales in.

The brush from Goody is perfect for pulling hair into a ponytail! I'm doing a simple full crown pony, securing it with a Goody satin covered rubber band and then back brushing the tail for

added volume.

The Kardashian pony is easy: simply back brush the crown of the head closest to wear you are going to secure the pony tail. The Goody brush I am using has a natural wood handle so it's eco-friendly and also the tourmaline infused boar bristles are gentle on hair and scalp.

Now with the crown full, use the brush to lightly push the remaining hair into a pony-I prefer mine high on the crown.

I like to leave the bump and fullness at the top of the pony and pull some of the hair forward from the rubber band once it's secured which makes kind of a messy styled pony.

I finish my Kardashian pony with back brushing the tail to make it full. I give a light coat of hairspray and I am ready!

The Goody brush I'm using is part of the Signature Satin collection and can be found at Walmart, Target, and just about any drugstore that sells Goody products!

I hope you are having an awesome Black Friday filling up on gifts for loved ones!

If you are going to school reunions, Thanksgiving dinners, holiday parties or just need to get a fresh look to boost your self confidence in this very busy holiday season, I recommend getting the FAKE BAKE tanning system. You will need:

Self Tanning Lotion-technolody that delivers a deeper darker long lasting tan. The color guide of the creme makes it easy to know where you have applied and it literally is streak free. I would tell you if I had a stripey belly but I don't!

The Thanksgiving week is officially upon us and mere weeks until Christmas! Yay for turkey and jelly cranberry sauce! Double yay for presents and mistletoe moments! All this celebrating means that the weather is changing to a colder maybe even snowy climate which is a challenge for skin.

These behaviors will take a toll on how you look!

EZ Sox-kid tested/kid approved! As seen on The Doctors

A Fragrance Finding Quiz for Your Giftee

This quiz will direct you to find a scent that she won't return or re-gift

A Fragrance Finding Quiz for Your Giftee

This is a TotalBeauty.com perfume article

Perfumer, Irina Burlakova, shares some insider-y info on how to find the best fragrance for your giftee.

Take quiz

EZ Sox came to the blog specifically for Mancub to test and write about. Since he has the
vocabulary akin to Dr. Seuss we decided on a video instead.

My kid is always peeved that boxes arrive daily for the blog but none of them are ever for him! That is until today!

EZ Sox are ingenious for little ones learning how to put their socks on by themselves. The young ones are always so eager to do it themselves and be "big" or grown up. The EZ Sox is simple: use the rope pulleys to pull the sock on and a kid knows they are on right because the face goes on the top of the foot! Easy! Don't believe me? Watch this short video of Mancub in action wearing his EZ Sox in Froggy green!

**Hey friends! Welcome back guest blogger Anna De Souza with some insight into eyewear fashion that feels good!**

For all of you that are fed up with sunglasses and eyeglasses that slide off your nose, sit on your cheeks, or pinch your temples -- there is an answer! Traditional designs are made for European bone structures and don’t address those with flat nose bridges and high cheekbones. Lower nose bridges, those higher cheekbones, and sometimes, a wider span between the temples keeps consumers from finding a fashionable pair of glasses that fit! The only option is to adjust the nose bridge on metal frames, but that’s only temporarily fixing the situation...

Indivijual Custom Eyewear lets you click and customize from home to create the perfect set of frames, indivijually -- for you!

Indivijual uses a step-by-step process that includes detailed measurements of your face, skin tone, hair color and eye color. They even create a mold of your nose to assure that your custom sunglasses are a perfect fit! Each pair is hand crafted with the finest of cellulose acetate and organic plastics from Italy and the highest quality of hardware from Germany.
