KMS California for Hair Your Way

Posted on: October 29th, 2014


Whether your hair is curly, thick, thin or frizzy, KMS California is up to the challange. With several different  hair types in my family, KMS California has something for each of us. I recently visited my daughter in college and noticed KMS California products on her bureau. I asked her what she thought about  the products, knowing that she is very fussy about the products she puts in her hair. I was relieved to hear that she loved them especially  KMS Tame Frizz. She likes products that control frizz and KMS Tame Frizz is working like a charm.

KMS Tame Frizz does a great job controlling her uncontrollable frizzy hair especially when it’s raining, that’s when she needs it the most.  Tame Frizz also helps protect her hair from heat caused by her  blow dryer and flat iron. Tame Frizz is definitely a win win. She likes that you can apply Tame frizz to dry hair for extra control over those frizzy hair strands. She can’t wait to try the other KMS California frizz control products.


My daughter also told me I have to pick up more KMS Medium Hold Spray. “I really like it and I am using it all the time”. “It’s a great spray for the humidity and you don’t get that stiff  feel to your hair”. Your hair will feel extremely manageable and brushable. KMS Medium Hold Spray (in the blue can) also protects your hair from the heat. That is a big issue for her so she is happy with KMS California.
There are several Salons in New York City where she can pick up what she needs and to find a location near you, or simply get more information on other KMS Hair Care products, visit

butterLONDON’S Amazing Shades of Lipsticks

Posted on: October 28th, 2014


Who told you that you have to put all your bright lipstick colors away for the winter? I know I always assumed it was “out with the summer colors” and “in with the fall colors”.  My summer colors are staying put, especially my butterLONDON ABBEY ROSE lipstick. While visiting New York City department stores this weekend, I was scanning the amazing make-up counters and immediately noticed that the bright Lipsticks are everywhere. I also noticed quite a few people wearing bright pinks, corals and red shades on their lips and they were looking fabulous.

I love my butterLONDON LIPPY Moisture Matte Lipstick and plan on wearing it all winter. butterLONDON‘s new LIPPY Moisture Matte Lipsticks has beautiful and vibrant colors. With shades like ABBEY ROSE, rose-pink cream, BLOWING RASPBERRIES, raspberry-red cream, COME TO BED RED, classic red cream, DAHLING, dusty-pink cream, LADYBIRD, tomato-red cream, and LOVED UP, berry-red cream, you will achieve the Moisture Matte look you want all day long. Enjoy the light scent of vanilla infused in each lipstick, I know I am.

Achieve Flawless Skin with Miracle Skin Transformer

Posted on: October 15th, 2014


I can’t say enough about Sarah McNamara’s Miracle SKIN Transformer Triple Active Night Treatment. I absolutely love it. It’s a great cream that works its magic during the night. When I wake up, my skin is not dry but rather soft to the touch and feels amazing. The wonderful feature about this night cream is that it acts as a 3 in 1. It’s an exfoliater, moisturizer all while containing powerful anti-aging benefits. One cream that does it all, I love it even more!

It’s a Night Cream that improves skin’s elasticity, and helps firm and tone overnight. One of the essential ingredients is derived from sun flowers helping to improve your skin’s hydration by up to 65% within the first three hours.

Miracle SKIN Transformer Triple Active Night Treatment is suitable for all skin types. Simply apply the Night Treatment to your face, neck, and chest using a gentle circular motion. For best results, use every night. I have been using Miracle SKIN Transformer Triple Active Night Treatment and love how my skin looks and feels.

Keep Your Golden Glow With Austrailian Gold

Posted on: October 10th, 2014


The question is Should I wear Panty Hose or Not? According to my daughters, they say “NOT”. They also told me my legs look white and if I’m not going to wear panty hose then they need a little color.  What better way to achieve an instant tan than with Australian Gold Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion. I’m familiar with Australian Gold’s sun Care products, the brand is one of my favorites and Australian Gold Instant Bronzing Self Tanning Lotion (yes, I already had one on my shelf) worked like a charm.

I applied the self tanning lotion to my legs being careful to completely cover the areas I wanted color. You should see the color within 2 to 4 hours so make you allow yourself enough time for the golden glow to show! Definitely apply ahead of time, you will be happy you did. The results were amazing, my legs were lightly bronzed. Bronze enough that I got a thumbs up from the girls and was able to ditch  the Panty hose.

I loved the fragrance, almost like a buttery smell and the formula dried quickly. Australian Gold Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion contains Chamomile and Vitamin E for soft and smooth skin. You can use Australian Gold Instant Bronze Self Tanning Lotion to maintain the color you want anytime you want, anywhere you want, you don’t have to limit yourself to your legs. Once you achieve the color you want, simply apply a light coat 2 to 3 times a week.  It’s safe, it’s fun, it’s Australian Gold.
