Posted on: October 20th, 2014


If you read my blogs, you already know that my sons and husband call the shots when it comes to purchasing a new Men’s fragrance. I won’t even make an attempt at it. I am forever ripping out sample fragrances from magazines and I just can’t get their interest until…….one of my sons, a college junior set his eyes on Nautica Life Eau de Toilette Spray. “That’s the one, that’ the one that I like”. Enough said, let the Holiday shopping begin. It didn’t surprise me that he liked the scent of Nautica Life, it’s the type of scent that is quite masculine and I suspect the girls like it too. This exquisite fragrance is a combination of Natural Sage, Provence Lavender and Natural Violet Leaf to reinforce the masculine aura. With classic notes of refined Hinoki Wood, Organic Tonka and marine Seamoss create a seductive alluring  masculine scent that every guy will love, I know I won’t mind if my husband wears it, it smells divine! Trust me, If my boys like it chances are yours will too.Nautica Life

Nautica Life  is available in a gift set, perfect for any occasion and also a Body spray which I definitely plan on purchasingfor the holidays.  You will find Nautica Life  in most fine department stores nationwide


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!

Miracle SKIN Transformer Triple Active Night Treatment contains advanced M3 Complex, formulated with high levels of active ingredients to help resurface skin’s texture, minimize discoloration, and repair the appearance of photo damage, revealing radiant and healthy looking skin as well as helping to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 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. With the cold winter months fast approaching, the heat dries out my skin so this is the perfect cream to resolve those issues .

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.


Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20 FACE is also amazing. If you use foundations to cover up skin imperfections and red blotches you will be surprised at how well this product works, I am having amazing results. Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20 FACE  is a 5-in-1 tinted skin enhancer designed to Hydrate, Prime, Enhance, Mattify & Protect your skin. I put a little more than apea size amount on my fingertips, rub together gently and apply to my face. The formula feels like velvet and dries instantly. It’s not heavy or thick and spreads evenly. Miracle Skin Transformer SPF20 FACE immediately covers the red blotches and skin imperfections resulting in a smooth even toned finish while  giving you the sun protection you need. Did I mention you can hardly see pores and fine lines, it’s fantastic. I truly reccommend this to anyone you needs their foundation every day. See for yourself and get yours here at

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.

Cocktails & Color to Fight Breast Cancer from Beauty Bar & Nailtini®

Posted on: October 1st, 2014



In what can best be described as a pairing that begs the question “what took them so long?”, Beauty Bar and Nailtini, renowned purveyors of cocktails and beauty, are coming together in the fight against breast cancer in the best way they know how – through martinis and manicures for the cause.

When Beauty Bar founder Paul Devitt lost his ex-wife to breast cancer caused by the BRCA gene mutation – which could also affect his young daughters – he resolved to leverage the notoriety of his trend-setting business to make a difference. Nailtini founder Michelle Toma Olson was only too eager to get involved, pledging to stock participating Beauty Bar locations with her brand’s incomparable lacquers for services and retail sale, proceeds from which will benefit the Basser Research Center for BRCA at the Universtity of Pennsylvania.

This passionate part of Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center provides education and support for individuals and families with BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, with its mission being to deliver cutting edge research in basic and clinical sciences to advance the care of individuals who carry them.

Devitt and Olson took the collaboration a step further by curating a Beauty Bar collection for “The Lacquer Cabinet” – Nailtini’s exclusive lacquer delivery service featuring limited-edition on-trend collections made for polish mixology. Launching just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this trio of not-your-grandmother’s-pinks features Nailtini’s vegan, 5-free and low-toxin formula, peerless performance, and a $2 per box donation to the Basser Center:
Pink Pussycat – sheer smoke brimming with hot pink glitter
Pink Fix – hot petal pink meets sultry glamour
Pink Pillow – champagne-kissed pink with satiny shimmer

With each in Nailtini’s all-premium formula, you can wear them straight, layered or hand-mixed with other shades in the empty mini bottles that come in each Lacquer Cabinet delivery box to create a myriad of custom nail looks – whatever you feel like stirring up. The shades are also exclusively available for services, along with more from the Nailtini range, at all Beauty Bar locations.

The Nailtini for Beauty Bar Lacquer Cabinet Collection is available at and will ship to subscribers in October 2014. Purchase a single collection for $25, a 6-month subscription for $23/month or a 12-month subscription for $20/month. A true happy hour for hands, each collection offers more than $44 in retail value plus free shipping.
