Food blog to follow: In Heather's Kitchen

Hi all and Happy Saturday!
I'm continuing on with the "kitchen" and "cooking" theme for today!

As a beauty blogger, I read a lot of beauty blogs-but, I also dabble and peruse the cooking and nutrition blogs too!

I came across this blog
and I think it's worth a share and that you may like it too!

Rimmel 25 hour Lasting Finish Foundation

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Woo hoo!

The importance of scent: chemical romance is real - get Caress!

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Before you go out into your busy weekend, think twice about what scent your are sharing!

Whether it be in your professional life or landing that second date with Mr. Right- the Caress Forever Collection’s mission statement is to help women leave a lasting impression.
Fragrance, touch, and body language have been proven to be the most valuable when making a first impression. To understand how to be unforgettable, Caress teamed up with body language expert, Tonya Reiman. Tonya, along with interesting survey results, have helped shed the light on the subject.
Here’s the truth about dating in today’s world:
  • Online dating isn’t just accepted – it’s widely embraced. Two in five Americans use dating sites and apps. (Most using two or more sites.)
  • Online interactions aren’t enough to seal the deal – more than half of men say in person non-verbal cues are what make a woman unforgettable.
  • Chemical romance is real – Nearly 6 in 10 men find their significant other desirable because of their soft touch or irresistible scent.
  • Nearly half of men are more likely to remember a woman’s scent or touch than her name.
Second-date deal breakers include a lack of physical chemistry (59 percent), non-verbal signals that show lack of interest (42 percent), or an undesirable scent or fragrance (35 percent).

Tips to Leave a Lasting Impression:
  • Touch + scent = unforgettable. Leaving a lasting impression goes way beyond physical appearance; what matters is physical interaction and fragrance. According to a recent survey, nearly half of men are more likely to remember a woman’s scent or touch than her name.   Why? A touch forms bonds, commitment and intimacy, while scent triggers feelings and memories.  Find a way to incorporate a natural touch; that instant connection is electric and makes an indelible memory.
o   Bonus, if you’re wearing Caress® Love Forever™ Body Wash, it will release a burst of perfume upon touch to truly captivate the person you’re meeting.
  • Beam with confidence. Show you’re comfortable in your own skin - stand tall, make sure hands are turned down (hands turned up are a submissive sign), make eye contact and dress in something that makes you feel good. You will radiate and be irresistible.
  • Play it coy. When you really want to reel your date in, don’t give it all away. Maintain an air of mystery by slightly embellishing the busyness of your life and leaving some questions unanswered. It will leave your date wanting more.
Talk without words. The average person takes in more signs than they realize, so if you’re looking to show someone you’re interested, lean in while you’re talking, point your feet toward the other person and nod while they speak to let them know you’re listening. Even the way tilt of your head speaks volumes – a tilt to the right signals you’re trustworthy (perfect for a job interview), while the left makes you more attractive (try it on a date). Want to take it one step further? A soft touch to your heart and exposure of your neck are sure to send a message of sensuality.Remember: you are beautiful!

#TBT Throwback Thursday with my first YouTube video for Makeup University ever

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths : for desert people who are not used to humidity

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Quick update from the Queen Mary and all her splendor!

The weather is amazing with a cool mid 70's but the humidity is also in the mid 70's. It's a bit like Florida! So my challenge is, I love the coast and the ocean, but the muggy humidity is not my friend!

My hair is one big puff ball! Oy!

I brought a long my sample of the Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths and thank goodness. They help wipe off the mugginess of the humidity.

The cloth leaves a light, dry, powdery feel on your skin and reminds me of using Gold Bond powder for sweaty toes in immitation leather shoes!

  • Lightly fragranced cloths instantly cool skin as they wipe away sweat for easy, on-the-go freshness
  • Patented Powder Silk Technology leaves skin with a translucent, superfine powder

Leon Max and Max Studios: finishing summer fashion and back to school basics that are anything but basic!

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Here I am enjoying the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Oh the joy of cloud cover! Although, in Arizona, it's been oddly cool. We are not having the normal high hundreds, in fact-we haven't even hit 100 in the past week. It's mid way through July!

Back to School starts on August 3rd here. For us, the summer is almost over!

So I've got some BTS style ideas for you with some looks from Leon Max and Max Studios. This will help a gal go back to school in style and be wearing something fresh that the other co-eds won't have clued into yet.

And FYI, Makeup University readers get a 20 % discount when you use the code BLOG15 on the Max Studio website.

TGIF with National Pina Colada Day and Piper's Perfumery new Bohemian Beauty fragrance

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
It's National Pina Colada day! Who knew? When I was super young, I used to love those! Now they are too sweet for me!

Does anyone have a less sweet, lower calorie version of a pina colada they would like to share?

Ok, on a side note, these are 3 small vials that are hand crafted glass blown perfume vials from the early 900's.
Whoa. Thank you Getty for showing them.

Now, what's a new fragrance for the 2015's? Piper's Perfumery Bohemian Beauty.

This fresh scent with a clean, green drydown on the skin is just about $5 in the local Walmarts. You can freshen up your summer scent before we head back into the BTS season.

Yep. BTS. In Arizona, we go back to school on August 3rd. Sigh.
Get your new Piper's Perfumery scent now!

And then there is this info on the National day of sweet drink celebration!

Celebrate July 10 with a drink in hand, it is National Pina Colada Day.  The Pina Colada is a sweet, rum-based cocktail.  Along with the rum, it includes cream of coconut and pineapple juice and is unusually served blended or shaken with ice.
‘Pina Colada’ literally means ‘strained pineapple’,
a reference to the freshly pressed and strained pineapple juice used in the drink.
There are different claims to the invention of the Pina Colada beginning in 1952 in San Juan, each standing to their story.  The truth is that pineapple and rum have been together from the beginning of the distillation of rum.  The first written reference to a Pina Colada was in 1922.  This recipe however, did not include coconut.

Have you tried It Works! That Crazy Wrap Thing?

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Well, I just may try it. I have not yet, but-I'm looking into it.

I'm curious about these products:

Fat Fighter, Facial Mask, Repairage, StretchMarks, Greens, Wraps, Exfoliating and the Hair,Skin & Nails products.
Let's look at some of these products together!

Summer hair dry and crunchy? You may need some Macadamia Professional products!

Macadamia Professional™, the oil authority for global textures, was inspired by extensive travels throughout the far reaches of the globe that led to one key insight… ALL global textures, from baby fine to ultra curly and coiled, have unique moisture level and style control needs.
To address these needs, Macadamia Professional™ products contain an exclusive PRO OIL COMPLEX, a blend of therapeutic Macadamia and Argan oils, rich in Omega 7, 5, 3 and 9 fatty acids, which deeply yet weightlessly nourish and repair hair from the inside out, rather than just conditioning from the surface, to renew hair’s natural texture.
Here’s how it works:
Macadamia Oil contains the highest amount of Omega 7 than any other nut oil.  Omega 7 most closely resembles human hair sebum and thus mimics scalp’s natural oil production to provide nourishment and moisturization with exceptional absorption and penetration from the inside out. Plus, Omega 7 is exceptionally lightweight and non-greasy with no buildup, which makes it ideal for ALL global textures, from the finest to the coarsest hair. Argan Oil is a rich oil filled with Omega 9, antioxidants and Vitamin E, which improves hair strength, renews damage and restores shine and softness to dry, brittle hair while reducing frizz and fly-aways.
When blended together…hair’s natural texture is transformed with renewed health, shine, bounce and manageability.
Macadamia Natural Oil…our signature oil for your signature texture
