Every month I receive a shipment from Julep, a beauty and nail company. It's a part of their Julep Maven program and they decide what to send me based on a questionaire I filled out when I started that gave them a bit of info about my style.  Most of the time it's a combination of nail polish, or nail polish and something else small. I always … [Read more...]

We picked up an iPad this last Christmas for our family and my first concern was keeping it safe while in the kids' hands. I looked at a number of cases geared for kids, and while many of them looked like they would indeed keep the iPad safe, they didn't always look like a case I'd want to be seen with. Neon colors. Huge foam padding. They loudly … [Read more...]

But I got motivated since my friend Jo-Lynne was headed down too and I had a nice run in the … [Read more...]

That product comes from Hugrz, a company that makes boot wraps and accessories to help you get several looks out of your same pair of boots. Boots are expensive - this is an affordable way to … [Read more...]

A couple of years ago, I got sucked into watching the show Veronica Mars streaming on Netflix.  It had already been cancelled and I started lamenting watching the last ep by the end of first hour I watched!  (I even found a way to turn it into a product review.  'Cuz you know, that's what I do.)

I was curious to check out L'Oreal's Revitalift Miracle Blur.  I mistakenly had thought it was a primer - on reading more I see it's a mix of everything.  Not a foundation, not a moisturizer or a primer.  It's basically supposed to be a wrinkle softener - an additional product to hopefully work some miracles on your aging face!  I've been using it … [Read more...]
