New Year's Resolution for 2012

Ok I am not big on making a plan for the New Year but I do have a few things in mind for 2012.

1. Clean out my closet and donate anything not worn over the last twelve months to charity.

2. Organize my kitchen cupboards and donate at least a full bag of food to a local food pantry.

3. I will be more aware of what I eat instead of grabbing the whole bag I will take only 4 or 5 chips.

4. Post more often on my blog and find new ones to follow.

5. Read at least six new books in 2012.

6. Go for a long walk several times each week.

7. Write letters more often to family.

8. Cook up a new recipe every week.

9. Smile even when I might not really want to and cry when I feel like it.

10. Feel no guilt if I do not get it all done.

Give A Little

I think we all need to remember that it does not take that much money or time to do something that really helps someone else.

Give to a cause you like big and small it all adds up to something good.

bareMinerals Box of Gems 20-piece Color Collection Review

bareMinerals Box of Gems

Box of Gems 20-piece Color Collection

A 20-piece collection of stunning eye and lip shades. Experience the ultimate in luxury with 10 new eye colors and 10 high-shine lip glosses that will drizzle lips in pure color. Tip: For a jewel-toned look, pair Gem and Glow eye colors--and deepen and smoke out even more with the Twinkle shade.

If you are looking for a gift or just shopping for yourself you will love this set. The colors are perfect for just about everyone. I found the lip colors are not as dark on my lips as they look I can wear all of them. The glosses go on smooth with good lasting coverage. The eye colors are lovely gems with the ten colors you can have a new look everyday. I gave a few items from my set to a friend as a little gift and I still have more than enough for myself.
I like every single lip and eye color in this set but I do have a few favorite ones.

Buxom Lip Polishes
Betty, a crimson shade
Gabby, a grape wine shade
Dani, a berry pink

Natural Lip Glosses
Energy Drink, a grapefruit shade
Apple Butter, a berry shade

Eye Colors
Twinkle, a chocolate shade
Glow, a golden tan
Solitaire, a silvertone shade

I highly recommend this collection to anyone looking for eye and/or lip products.

I posted here Get Gorgeous With QVC about a few of the holiday items from QVC. I am so happy to have received the Box of Gems 20-piece Color Collection this would also make a great gift for the New Year.

This collection was a gift from the Vogue Influencer Network. My review is my own opinion of the collection.

Style With Frederic Fekkai

Frédéric Fekkai partnered with celebrity stylist Renato Campora to create this modern twist on the classic ponytail.

Top tip: Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip throughout the hair until the entire head is damp. 2 Blow dry the hair using a large round brush. 3 Once the hair is mostly dry, straighten hair with a flat iron, separating into sections, while applying Frédéric Fekkai Essential Shea Tame and Style Pot de Crème to add shine. 4 Create a deep, exaggerated part to the right side of the head.

The Fekkai site is offering Free Shipping (no minimum purchase) this month and some great gift sets!

Fizz Bath Shop Review

Super Fizzing Wonderful!!

Fizz Bath Shop sent a wonderful box of their bath and body products to me for review on my blog. I enjoyed just smelling, touching and looking at them. They have the cutest stuff not only is it cute but it smells wonderful and made my skin feel very soft.

Relax Bath Fizz
This has the wonderful smell of Lavender. I really enjoyed my bath and did indeed feel relaxed and renewed.

Grapefruit Sugar Scrub
I have always liked sugar scrubs and this one is very good. I love the Grapefruit scent and the coarseness of the scrub was great. My elbows and feet really needed the extra help a scrub like this gives them.

Optimism Mood Balm

Wonderful scent made up of Rosemary, Grapefruit and Litsea Cubeba.
I used this on my lips, wrists and just under my nose before going to bed and I found it very relaxing. I also used it on my lips during the day as a lip balm.

Peppermint Lip Balm
Great lip balm goes on smooth and easy the scent is perfect.

Cold & Flu Shower Steam
You place this little steamer on the floor of your shower and it slowly dissolves up into the steam while you shower which you then breath in.
I have not had a cold or the flu this season but if or should I say when I do I will use this.

Bag of Bath Salt Tubes
Choice of Six from the list.
I thought this was a great way to try several different scents. They even have Lemon and Grapefruit two of my favorites.

You will want to check out the sample packs and gift boxes its a great way to try several things. If you need something for baby they have several items including Baby Bath and Bottom Balm.

One more item that caught my eye is the Sinus Relief Inhalation Beads we have minor sinus trouble off and on and I like the idea of using this instead taking a pill. I will have to try it.

Philips Wake-up Light Review

Philips Wake-up Light

Along with eating right, exercising, and sleeping well, light plays an important role in living your best life. Using innovative Light Therapy, the Philips Wake-up Light gradually wakes you up in a gentle, less abrupt way - the way nature intended it.Did you know that both sunlight and daylight have positive effects on us? The light raises energy levels and helps us align our daily rhythm. The Philips Wake-up Light gets brighter and brighter the closer it is to the set wake up time.

Philips Wake-up Light Better Mornings

As a member of Shespeaks I had the opportunity to try the Philips Wake-up Light. I really did not know much about it but I thought it would be interesting to try it. I have been using the light for over two weeks and I really do feel that I wake up feeling a bit more rested and awake. You know how rude your regular alarm can be with the Philips Wake-up light its a gentle entry back into the world. The light slowly brightens to its brightest level and then a regular alarm goes off at the time you set it for. You have a couple options for your alarm I used the cute bird chirp it has a nice sound and I am not big on sounds when I first awake.
The light fits nicely on my nightstand and makes a great regular use light. The built in radio is a nice extra as well.

Disclosure: As a member of Shespeaks I received this product sample free of charge to review.
