Anjali MD Laser Eye Lift creme - review

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Today I have a new product that I am trying and you may like it too if you like eye creams. I'm always on the hunt for something super moisturizing with lots of hydration and sunscreen!

This brand is called Anjali MD and the product is Laser Eye Lift Creme.

ANJALI MD Laser Eye Lift is a breakthrough scientific innovation with immediate results. Bags and puffiness are reduced within minutes, revealing a refreshed, younger appearance. A revolutionary, innovative formula combines Neurotransmitters, Energized Minerals, SNAP-8, Glycosaminoglycans and Hyaluronic Acid to reduce bags and puffiness and improve eye wrinkles. A warming sensation ensues. Laser Lifting Complex™ lifts and tightens fatigued skin, while collagen and the molecular matrix rebuild for long-term visible results. Eyes immediately appear refreshed, rested and younger.

Something to note, this has this plastic applicator piece that is the "belle" of this ball - but I find it funky. And I'm not sure it's clean or how to clean it after use and I am concerned about re-applying something that may have a cootie.

I've been using it for a week now and I'm not seeing a wow factor,  but I do like it. So I'm going to see the bottle through and pinch me so I remember to do a before and after photo!

#GivingTuesday - a great day to share what's important to you in charity giving

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Today is known as #GivingTuesday and it's a chance to step back  from all of the retail madness and focus on giving a wee bit of charity to a non profit organization or one that moves you.

End of year giving to animal shelters, women shelters and charities of all sorts can benefit from the gift as well as give you a possible tax deduction.

Giving Tuesday is win win!

I like to give to the Humane Society, Fresh Start Foundation for Women, Doug Addison and Kim Clement ministries and Samaritan's Purse for the clean water projects.

Every dollar counts so if you only can give a dollar, give it! It will make a difference!

CYBER MONDAY is here! Who's shopping where?

Hi ya Gorgeous,
It is Cyber Monday and if you don't what that is, it's time you learn. Way back in the day where most homes had dial up internet but business had cable internet, meaning, faster internet, people would go to work on Monday and do a lot of Christmas shopping.

Now, no one has dial up and almost everyone has a high speed connection, with some of you lucky folks having the google fiber.

So today is usually a day for deep discounts when shopping online.  Unless you are Walmart who rolled out their Cyber Monday sales and deals on Black Friday.

I adopted the REI mantra of "get outside" on Thanksgiving. We had a beach picnic turkey frying extravaganza and it was delish.
But I digress.

Back to Cyber Monday - be sure you look and find this set from Premium Blend by Munsingwear. It's the most classic scent and new old school guys can wear this with confidence and when you give it to them ladies, it will instill confidence.

This set is everything a man needs to fill his dopp kit to go to the gym or on the road or just have on hand at home.

This kit is available at Macy's or the Original Blend website! Get it before it's gone! Just $70 for everything!

  • Original Penguin's new fragrance ORIGINAL BLEND is a refreshing clean marine scent immersed in a striking crafty bottle design of substantial stature and striking color.Evoking a sense of style and temptation ORIGINAL BLEND opens with a burst of Italian bergamot kaffir lime and crisp apple.
  • The scent infuses into a blend of crushed lavender shaved nutmeg and brushed suede and is then finely wrapped with a dry down of sandalwood musk and warm amber.
  • This fresh aquatic fougere is the perfect blend of heritage wit and masculinity certain to stimulate the senses and stop by-passers in their tracks.

Shop Small Saturday: Perry Ellis Aqua Extreme - get ready for Cyber Monday

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Saturday, November 26th  is known as "Shop Small Saturday' and it's a reaction to the mega shopping of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

I encourage you to shop small, by buying from a small independent shop or even an independent distributor of a product you need or want to give as a gift. It's these little purchases that help keep a Mom and Pop shop in business and you know all of them are pushing for sales during this holiday season to end up in the black by the end of the fiscal year which is quickly approaching.

Now that my commercial for small business is finished, let's talk about an amazing fragrance for men. I love fragrance and it's a perfect accessory.

The Perry Ellis AQUA Extreme 

Created for the modern, thrill-seeking man, Perry Ellis Aqua Extreme punctuates a look with its refreshingly clean and uplifting signature scent that lasts all day. Perry Ellis Aqua Extreme opens with fresh and invigorating top notes of sheer bergamot, luminous aquatics and verbena. The heart is complemented with uplifting geranium, lavender and juniper. The base warms down to sensual and addictive notes of labdanum, tobacco leak and milk wood.
  • 3.4 fl oz / 100 ml
  • Eau de Toilette Spray
  • A modern masculine blend of zesty citruses
  • Fresh aromatic and aquatic notes contrasted with dark sensual woods
  • Imported
 Now is the time to buy fragrance because during holidays it almost always has a gwp! So get it!
I love this new scent in the Perry Ellis line of fragrances. It's really clean smelling to me and has a woody dry down. Of course, I am spraying this on me and smelling it on me and I'm thinking, "dang, if this smells this good on me just think how good it would smell on a guy?"!

Find it in the department store or Ulta Beauty and Sephora and give it a try!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Gobble Gobble!

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays. I have fond memories as a child of family meals with dozens of extended family members and food and pies that went on for what seemed like miles!

It was so much fun to run amok with my cousins and snack throughout the day waiting for the big bird reveal and then eating way too much that I had to take a nap. We usually watched a movie, on HBO no less, it was such a big deal to have cable after eating and fell asleep during it - no fault on the show- just tuckered out from the travel, the eating, and the tryptophan!

After waking up, it was time for more pie, some left overs and some more running amok and playing. Good times! This year is no different except I am not cooking this year! I love to cook Thanksgiving dinner but it's time to give someone else a turn and my sister-in-love is making the bird.  I'm so excited for a beach cookout!

From my family and Makeup University to you and your family, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving and pray a blessing of abundance over you!

Shop Small Saturday today with The Glassberries

 Hi ya Gorgeous!

Life is happening pretty fast around here and Thanksgiving is now 24 mere hours away meaning that the busiest shopping day, *ahem* weekend bleeding over into Monday is now upon us.

Shop Small is November 29th, though I encourage you to begin to "shop small" now. Why? Because crafters and artisans can not stamp out their creations by the 100's at a time.

Like this lil beauty, these glass berries are gorgeous and remind me of my Pandora bracelet of charms. If anyone wants to get me a new bracelet full of berries, then by all means do!

Here's some details or ya and link too!

The Glassberries Store offers a wearable feast for fruit lovers including gardeners, gourmets and those of us who picked berries when we were kids.  I hand-make each of my fool-the-eye glass berry charms and sculptures by shaping colored glass in the flame of a torch.   

They make treasured gifts!  You can buy them alone or already made into heirloom-quality earrings, bracelets and necklaces.  

 My jewelry, sculptures and ornaments are priced from $20 to $2000 and I ship worldwide.  Free gift packaging for every purchase and free Priority Mail shipping in the US for items over $50!

Healing through overindulgence this holiday: TheOrganic Pharmacy Liver & Kidney Tincture

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Thanksgiving is almost here! I'm so excited! I love the holiday season and all of the indulging that goes along with it! That's why I started Weight Watchers a few months ago- to make sure I had some extra room to have an extra serving of whatever I want!

Oh, or an extra glass of whatever I want! Who knew a glass of wine was 5 points!

The have a Liver & Kidney tincture and Ester C which is non acidic that can help you help yourself after you have indulged too much!

 The Organic Pharmacy makes amazing healthy and holistic skincare, body care, makeup and supplements. You may notice the price is just a bit higher than other brands, though that is due to the quality.

Trust me when I say, do yourself a favor and order these ahead of time before the party season kicks into high gear!

Liver & Kidney Drops

A combination of herbs used to support the liver and kidneys. Useful during a detox or party season to help regenerate the liver.

Classic shaving with Van Der Hagen Shave Set

Hi ya Gorgeous,
We are in the final countdown to Thanksgiving and I have blown my Weight Watchers all to heck! I've been stressed and busy with the film and getting ready to travel and holy smokes, all the work I've done so far has quickly been lost in the week I've been home and now I get ready to travel again.

If you saw the Makeup University Holiday Gift Guide Men's Edition video on YouTube, then you have already seen the Van Der Hagen set. That video is available here: Makeup University YouTube

Your shave is only as good as your razor. Van der Hagen’s Traditional Safety Razor is constructed with heavy-duty, chrome-plated brass. The compact handle is shorter than most razors, giving you a better grip and more control when trimming your whiskers. Also included are (5) double edge, Teflon-coated razor blades. Manufactured in Solingen, Germany, these ice tempered stainless steel blades help prevent ingrown hairs, and are designed to give you a close, comfortable shave. Replacing blades has never been easier thanks to the razor’s butterfly opening, and the back of the cartridge holds your used blades!
  • Chrome-plated razor
  • Butterfly opening
  • Pack of 5 double edge, Teflon-coated, ice tempered stainless steel blades
How to replace your razor blade: Twist the bottom of the razor’s handle to open the butterfly head. Slide the new blade out from the cartridge and carefully remove the tissue paper. Please be careful to hold the blade at the unsharpened edges. Then, slip the blade right in the head, twisting the bottom of the handle to completely close the butterfly. Discard your used razor blades by placing them in the back slot of the razor cartridge. Warning: Throwing away unprotected razor blades can lead to serious injury.

If you’re looking for a deluxe shave set with a more able-bodied brush, the Luxury Boar Shave Set is for you. Stiffer than badger hair, the boar bristles gently massage your whiskers, raising those ready-to-be-trimmed follicles. Lather up with the hypoallergenic shave soap in the ceramic apothecary mug, and you’re on your way to a closer, smoother shave without skin irritation or razor bumps! The acrylic stand holds both brush and personal razor for easy storage. 

  • 100% natural boar bristle brush*
  • Hypoallergenic shave soap (3.5 oz / 99.2 g)
  • Apothecary mug
  • Acrylic combination brush & razor stand
*Because the brush is made from natural hairs, fibers may break. Hairs will shorten in length over time due to normal wear and tear.
Soap ingredients: Propylene Glycol, Water, Sorbitol, Sodium Stearate, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Myristate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Triethanolamine, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Mangifera Indica (Mango Butter), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Titanium Dioxide, Fragrance

For those of you who didn't meet this classic shave set that is a perfect gift for the guy on your shopping list!

How to fix dry winter skin: 2 steps with Tree Hut Shea Butter

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Who else has dry itchy skin now that the season has finally changed and it's winter. Well, almost winter. I was recently in Southern California and it was as hot there as it is here in the desert!

We got a winter like storm the past few days and it has made it a lovely shade of grey and blue with rain even!

So the weather change has some itchy skin symptoms and if you too have this, try some Tree Hut. The brand is made in the USA, easily available at Walmart stores nationwide and has a commitment to natural ingredients and practices.

This Shea Sugar Scrub with Brazilian Nut has a light grit to it and easy slip on the skin so no harsh dragging on sensitive parts.

The Tree Hut Shea Body Butter is thick and rich and moisturizing and on me, lasts through a hand wash. You can even get this on Amazon in a 3 pack at a sale price here

I think these products make a great Christmas gift for a teacher, service industry professional or co-worker.

Get yours today!

KMS having an impact on bullying - please read

 Hi ya Gorgeous,
Quick guest post to share on a very important topic - please read!

Confident. Brave. Fierce. Honest.
These are just some of the words that more than a dozen  gifted stylists use to  describe themselves – and anyone else who has been  victimized by bullying – in a  compelling video filmed at the ID Salon in Woodbury, NY. Owned by Lori Panarello, a Guest Artist and Educator for KMS California,  ID is a full-service  salon that’s dedicated to helping its clients express  themselves and celebrate  their unique identity through fashion in hair.

Hosted by Simon Miller, one of KMS California’s  Global  Style Council members, the short film features incredibly  moving stories from the  salon’s stylists about their own painful experiences  with bullying and how they  learned to rise above the hate, overcome the hurt and love  themselves for who  they are. “I don’t ever want to be anything  but who I am,” says Lori. “I  actually love me and I’m so happy that I don’t  fit in with the norm.”

Lori started the project after she heard the news of a  13-year-old Staten Island boy who had committed suicide as a  result of  incessant bullying. Together with the LGBT community, Lori  started fundraising  at her salon to help the local coalition for anti-bullying.

When Lori asked her staff if any of them had ever been bullied before, each and  every person raised  a hand. That’s when Lori realized that the stories of  these talented and  successful stylists needed to be brought to life and shared,  so that those who  are currently suffering know that they’re not alone  and that it does get  better.

“I dealt with bullying by finding my own self-worth  and realizing that once you do, nobody can take it away from  you again,” says  one of the dozens of empowered, emotionally charged  interviewees in the video.

Created in partnership with The Crooked Fringe  Movement, an independent broadcasting and media production  company, the uplifting video  implores us all to #CutOutTheBullying and say enough is  enough. “The worst  thing about being bullied is that you start to question  things you know for  sure about yourself,” says Simon. “No one  should be bullied. At some point  we’ve just got to stop it.”

Please join us in bringing awareness to this senseless  act of cruelty by sharing Beauty Against Bullying’s  message of tolerance and  love. The video is live on YouTube at

One Week to Happy Healthy Nails with Sally Hansen 18K Gold

Hi ya Gorgeous!

It has been a whirlwind of traveling and it feels so good to be home! There is so much going on with everything in every which way!

I've completely blown and gotten off track from my Weight Watchers plan- traveling and staying on my points was really hard and there were too many temptations that I gave into!  So, back to square one tomorrow for me!

The Makeup University Holiday Gift Guide starts today on Youtube and there will be a second post today to launch! 

Now, it's "Mani Monday" and I'm wearing the new Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener and cuticle eraser. 

I painted my nails and used the cuticle tool before I left for the American Film Market, and then wore it for ten days straight and it still looks good! I love the light gold flecks and plan to re-do my nails this week and wear it over the top of a color.

On me, I have cuticles that are like callouses due to my Hashimotos. So, the first few applications did not dazzle but then again, there is a lot for it to work with! I'm going to start using it again today!

You can find these at mass retailers and drug stores nationwide as well as online for under $10!
Which makes these a perfect stocking stuffer!

How to not stink at holiday parties: BAN Deoderant

Hi ya Gorgeous,

What a whirlwind week the travel to Santa Monica for the American Film Market has been and then dipping down into San Marcos for the Fire and Glory Revival meetings - whoa - really needed that!

So the holidays are here and so is the stress. Have you tried BAN Deoderant yet for a healthier alternative to aluminum filled anti-perspirants?

Do you get stressed during the holiday shopping season? You’re not alone! According to a poll by the American Psychological Association, 69% of people are stressed by the feeling of having “lack of time” during the holidays. Avoid the holiday rush and stress sweat that comes from it thanks to the Ban Brand Experts!

Ban Roll-On Deodorant ($4.99) offers an outstanding 24 hours of invisible protection against odor causing sweat! The formula that glides on easily contains Ban’s breakthrough technology, which specifically targets and virtually eliminates (not cover up) stress odor that other antiperspirant/deodorants may leave behind! No matter your mood, Ban has a scent that fits for you:

  • Regular for a light and clean floral fragrance
  • Powder Fresh for a classic powder scent
  • Satin Breeze for a feminine touch with green and citrus notes
  • Fresh Cotton for a refreshing floral heart with a hint of fruit
  • Simply Clean for fresh and powdery amber notes with hint of peach nectar
  • Unscented for sensitive skin

Ban Roll-On Deodorant is available at Drug and Mass Retailers nationwide for $4.99. 

 Get some and get ready...the Makeup University Holiday Gift Guide begins tomorrow ....woot woot!
