Your feet feel so good….against my leg

Your feet feel so good….against my leg

Hello Divas!

Are you ready to celebrate this holiday weekend? I am going to celebrate by relaxing, sleeping, and shopping for new beauty products. Yeah!!!! I do hope your 4th of July is fab! Ladies and Men, I have discovered a product that is a must have. Olay Body Thermal Pedicure. I am so in love with this product. Basically, this lotion is a self-heating exfoliating everyday treatment that relaxes and smooths rough and tired feet in one week! I promise it really does work. Simply wet your feet and then massage the lotion onto your feet. The lotion heats up instantly when it comes in contact with water. The heat relaxes your feet and the Bora Bora white sand, pumice, and micro-crystals in the product gently removes dead skin. After 3 days of use, my feet were smooth as a baby’s bottom. This product is great if you are in between pedicures. And ladies this is a great product for the man in your life. If you are tired of him rubbing his rough feet against your leg every night, get him this product and you both will be happy. lol! This product retails for $9.99. You can purchase it online here or at any CVS, Target, or Wal-Mart.

Hello Divas!

I hope your week is productive and fabulous! Two years ago, my sister hipped me to these amazing razors for the bikini area. I usually get a wax but they are so painful. Ouch! So I decided to give the razors a try. They are the Noxzema Bikini Shavers. Well ladies they are fantastic! Why are they so great? Well they do not cause any irritation whatsoever. Usually if I shave I get tons of irritable hair bumps, but I have been using these razors for 2 years and I have not seen one bump! Also these razors leave your skin feeling silky smooth for weeks! I also use them for the underarm area for a super smooth underarm which is very important when wearing sleevless clothes. Noxzema really put some thought into creating these razors. They have a soothing Aloe Vera moisturizing pad for lubrication; a comb design with protective skin guard that minimizes irritation; and the mini-blade is perfect for hard to reach areas. You can find Noxzema Bikini Shavers in the hair removal section, (not the razor section) of any CVS, Walmart, or Target. They retail for $4.49 for a pack of 3.

Hello Divas!

I hope your weekend was wonderful! I usually do not discuss baby fashion, but since I have a little girl, it will probably creep into my posts from time to time.
A good friend, who is an awesome fashion designer, sent my baby girl some very cute and fashionable onesies that she just introduced into her clothing line, Pekuliar Treasures. Well check out the pictures of baby girl and the onesie. Too adorable! I love the fact that these onesies are so unqiue. They are handpainted with cute phrases and the flowers on each onesie is hand sewn. I just love them! And the colors are so vibrant! So ladies if you have little babies or know anyone who has a little one these onesies are a must have. They retail for $8 and come in sizes S (0-3 mos.), M (3-6 mos), L (6-12 mos.).

Recap: Celebrity Style Lounge

Recap: Celebrity Style Lounge

Hello Divas!

I hope your week has been lovely! I have to give your guys the scoop on the Celebrity Style Lounge Event I attended last Thursday. Unfortunately, I am having problems with my camera and cannot download the pictures. Sigh…. but lets get back to the event.

First I just have to rave about the complimentary eye brow threading services that were provided by our favorite Apothecary & Spa, Entebello. Ladies it was the BEST eye brow shaping service I have ever received. I must confess that I have been getting my eyebrows waxed at my favorite nail salon for the low low price of $7. And until two weeks ago, I really felt like I was getting over. My girlfriends were telling me they were getting their eyebrows waxed for $20, $40 dollars and I was like why? Well ladies the last time I got my eyebrows waxed, they were clearly uneven. She tried to clean them up with tweezers, but to no avail. I was not happy. So I go to the Celebrity Style Lounge and I watch Kiana, the eyebrow guru, work her magic on several ladies. I’m thinking why not try it, maybe she can even out my eyebrows. And ladies did she ever! She is absolutely fantastic! She worked her magic with the thread and then she took her time and trimmed and tweezed my eyebrows to perfection. I love her! The threading service starts at $20, and worth every penny. Ladies you absolutely must check Kiana out at Entebello. You will not be sorry! Click here to get contact information for Entebello.

I also checked out some of the cool vendors at the event. I really enjoyed shopping at Sole Journey. Sole Journey is an online shoe boutique that sells unique footwear. They have the cutest flats, heels, and thong sandals. I purchased these cute black patent leather flip flop sandals. They are the best! They are cushioned and they have a hard bottom. Essentially they are comfortable and durable, so I know they will hold up for a long time. I have purchased cute flip flops at Target and they fell apart after 6 months. Now I love Target, but I would not buy their flip flops again. They also sell this flip flop in Fuschia. They retail for only $20.00. Check them out here.

I found a new boutique that I really adore and it is called Sammy’s Place. Sammy’s Place sells the CUTEST dresses (tunics, maxi dresses, halters, etc.) and accessories. Every item is very unique, true one of a kind pieces. Visit their website here to view all of their cool clothing and accessories.

Lastly I want to commend Gifted Presence for organizing such a great event. The music was good, the crowd was hip, and the vendors were fabulous! I am so looking forward to the next event. I will keep you ladies posted!

Tried and True

Tried and True

Hello Divas!

I truly hope you are having a fab week! Ladies there are certain products that I keep coming back to and for good reason. They just work great. One product that is a true staple in my beauty arsenal is Lancome’s Bi-facil eye makeup remover. Loves it! It removes all of my eye makeup with just one wipe. It is so gentle (it does not burn my eyes!) but unbelievably effective, I am sometimes amazed that I have tried other eye makeup removers. Yes, I have tried other less expensive brands and they never work as well as Bi-facil. They either burn my eyes or I have to use a lot of the product to remove my eye makeup. Bi-facil is a bit pricey at $26.00 for 4.2 ounces, but it is the best. I also use it to remove other makeup. It has repeatedly been voted as The Best eye makeup remover by Allure Magazine and Glam.com! Invest in this product and I know you will love it too! You can purchase it here or at any Sephora.

Hello Divas!

I hope you are enjoying life! Luxetips has teamed up with Champagne Taste, an Accessory and Handbag Boutique, to give a way an uber cool “Green” handbag. Since going “Green” or organic is the new craze and most importantly vital for our planet and health, I thought it would be cool to have a contest to support the Green initiative. These “Green” handbags are made of Jute fabric which is one of the strongest natural fibers in the world. But most importantly it is biodegradable. So Earth friendly! And as an added bonus these cool handbags have a “Green” message displayed on the bag: Stop Pollution! Save the Environment! Love Nature! And of course they are too cute!

To enter this contest simply subscribe to Luxetips via email in the left hand column and then leave a comment beneath this post and tell me what are you doing to go “Green”. This contest starts Friday, June 13th and ends on June 27th at 12 midnight. A winner will be chosen at random. Visit Champagne Taste, here or if you live in Atlanta in the East Atlanta Village at 496A Flat Shoals Avenue.

Top Three for Summer Heat!

Top Three for Summer Heat!

Hello Divas!

I hope your life is pretty fabulous! Teri Cosenzi of the fabulous blog, Beautiful Make-Up Search, asked beauty bloggers what are their top 3 beauty products for summer. I thought about it and I realized that my top 3 beauty products for summer help me to combat the heat and still look and smell like a million bucks! Check them out below. What are yours?

1. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. This product is a must have staple in every girl’s make-up collection. Can I just say that it is just too fantastic! This tinted moisturizer is an excellent alternative to foundation. I personally do not like wearing foundation in the heat, especially humid heat. The foundation melts and leaves my skin oily, shiny, and clogged. Yuck! Simply pick a shade of Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer that is close to your skin tone and lightly apply it to your face for a clean polished look. It moisturizes your skin perfectly and it contains SPF 15! This product comes in 7 shades from light to dark. It retails for $42.00 but so worth it. Purchase it here or at Sephora.

2. Sonya Dakar Drying Potion. Sonya Dakar’s Drying Potion is a celebrity favorite for zapping away pimples overnight. Its it a miracle product that I can’t live without! Due to the Atlanta humid heat, my skin becomes very oily. Combine oily skin with sweat and dirt, blemishes instantly appear. I put this product on blemishes before bed and in the morning they are gone! This product retails for $25.00. Purchase it here or at Entebello Apothecary and Spa.

3. Bath and Body Works Body Splashes. I know I have talked about these body splashes before, but they are the best. They are perfect fragrances for summer because they cool you down and smell luscious. During the summer, I keep mine in the fridge and spray on my body to instantly get relief from the heat. This product retails for $11.00. You can purchase them here or at any Bath & Body Works store.
