Happy Lips During Winter

The Savannah Bee Company's lip balm is the bomb!  Yes, pun intended.  I was so happy to find this lip balm in my swag bag from "The Knot" mixer.  Btw, they know how to throw a party!  I'm not a chapstick kind of a girl, but I love this product!

You can actually feel the conditioning effects right away.  My lips instantly felt softer.  They packed this balm with the finest southern honeys & flora.  As well as pecan oils & propolis to give that intense feeling of moisture.  Not to mention it's all natural & certified organic!  I have the Earl Grey flavor, but I'm sure they are all equally amazing!  During this winter weather, this $3.50 purchase will bring you many days of happy lips!    

You can order online or visit the Savannah Bee Company store downtown to purchase.  
Not to mention, their honey is delicious!

Dark Circles- NO MORE!

Nivea Revitalizing Eye Cream Q10 - Less than $10 on Amazon

If you have dark circles, this is the product to use! Inexpensive, fast working, & not only for men! It will take years off of you! Dab, don't rub, in under your eyes with your ring finger. Ring finger because it is your weakest finger. Go ahead & try it... Crazy huh. Using your ring finger will not tug the eye area as much & less tugging now means less wrinkles later.

Golden Globe HOT Couples

Since my last entry was about love... who was your favorite couple on the Golden Globes red carpet?  I love them all... especially Heidi & Seal.  SO happy Drew & Justin are back together - LOVE!

Bianca & Ramon's E-Session Photos - wow.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Bianca & Ramon, an engaged couple who are gorgeous inside & out!  Very sweet, down to earth, & so in love.  Bianca made my job easy with her natural beauty.  I usually don't get to meet the fiance, so it was really great to hear their story from his point of view.  During the makeup session, he would glance up and smile while reading a magazine... which is a very good indicator for me that I'm doing my job to his liking.  Bianca said, "Why do you keep sneaking peeks?  Do you like it so far?"  She was unsure of what to expect since I turn my clients away from the mirror.  It makes the reveal so much fun!  Ramon replied, "You look reallllly good."  Ladies & gentlemen, she did look good.  She was simply stunning!  I couldn't stop starring at her after my job was done.  I'm more than excited for their wedding day, August 7th.

Here's a few shots that the amazingly talented Allison Reisz captured.  Please visit Allison's blog to view the rest and read more about Bianca & Ramon.

Golden Globes 2010

The Golden Globes did not disappoint when it came to beauty on the red carpet & I was pretty excited about the winners as well.  Some of my favorite winners included Mo'Nique, Sandra Bullock, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, & AVATAR... oh how I love Avatar...  I tweeted yesterday "Avatar in IMAX 3D was a beautiful experience. I'm breathless & speechless." Yeah, it's that good!

My favorite beauties of the night included, once again Sandy B, Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Aniston, & the hottest Halle Berry I've ever seen... wow.  People, both of these ladies are over 40! And the church said,"AMEN"

 And let's not forget "The Dude", who was mighty dapper! Along with Robert Downy Jr & my favorite villain Christoph Waltz (watch Inglorious Bastards & you will love him too)

Taylor's hair was a dream.  As always, so was her makeup!

If your dress is more "drama" than you can handle.. pick another one.

Sweet News About Hard Candy

The Hard Candy makeup line is officially @ Wal-Mart!  The creators of the line worked with "The W" with hopes of competing with Sephora.  Well, I wouldn't go that far.. but I like your style.  Making pro grade makeup  available for a more affordable price.  The retailers wanted to keep the price points from $5-$10.  Keep in mind, it's not the same exact Hard Candy but it's pretty awesome.  My clients are loving it & so am I!  Go try it out & let me know what you think.  Here's the camera phone pic from my Wal-Mart:

Beauty Rest

Hope you all had a fun and safe new years...I know I did!

I thought I would start the year off with something fun. Have you ever felt like your partner was a "bed hog". You wake up to find yourself clutching the edge of the bed for dear life...before you find yourself on the floor. You try to wake up your partner so that they can move over and they try to assure you that they are not on your side of the bed. Well a couple came up with a clever idea to help settle the argument.... "Bed Hog" sheets! The sheets have a his and her side with a line going down the middle. Check out the website...very cute idea...especially for a bridal shower, or 2nd anniversary gift. Let the sheets settle the argument so that you can get your beauty rest!
