I’m slightly obsessed with having long, luxurious eyelashes. Tell me a beauty treatment will give the appearance of curled and thick lashes, and I’ll say, “When’s my appointment?” I’ve had lash extensions that were so thick they prevented my natural lashes from growing. And I’ve also had my natural lashes permed. Unfortunately, the curl made applying mascara difficult and time-consuming.

That’s why I was so excited to learn about Kiss Premium Eyelashes, which have patent-pending Red Application Strings for easy application. Keep reading »
I love eating chocolate. I love smelling chocolate. And now, after using The Body Deli’s dark chocolate truffle body scrub, I love bathing in it, too. The dark chocolate truffle body scrub (exclusively available in Feb.), sloughs off skin just as vigorously as their pumpkin body scrub.

What’s makeup agoraphobia? Well, listen to this. A new study has concluded that one-third of all women refuse to leave the house without wearing makeup. In other words, they can’t go out without painting their face first. Which is kind of shocking. Not only that, but more than a third of the 3,000 women polled speculated that had they not been wearing makeup when they met, their significant other wouldn’t have gone for them. Sad truth: I’m a bit of a makeup agoraphobe myself. Unless the kitchen is on fire, I’m disinclined to go out without mascara, some cover-up, and blush. What about you? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
