Tuesday's Tip

I discovered these Two Tips from realbeauty.com

Brown Sugar
DIY Recipe: Luxurious hand softening and conditioning treatment. The cold weather takes a toll on hands by drying them out to the point where they start to crack and peel. Save this recipe for when skin is past the tender stage and can use some sloughing help to make them feel soft again.

What You'll Need:1/4 cup coarse brown sugar, baby oil to make into a paste.

Method and Application: Mix together. Using a hand-washing motion, apply the mixture to the hands. Continue the washing motion for a minute, then rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

Pumpkin Puree
DIY Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Pedicure. Since pumpkin is chock full of good-for-you nutrients, it only makes sense that it would pack the same benefits for your skin. With the weather getting colder, it's a great ingredient to add to your beauty treatments since it nourishes tired tried and dry skin instantly, plus gives it a gorgeous healthy glow.

What You'll Need:½ cup pumpkin puree and 1 egg. Optional ingredients: splash of milk, 1 tsp honey

Method and Application:Mix ingredients together and apply the pumpkin masque to feet and calves. Wrap in plastic bags. Sit back and relax for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Dry off and apply a few pumps of your favorite moisturizer or lotion (try a Vanilla scent) to keep feet and calves silky-smooth and hydrated. Cut and file nails as desired.

The Ellie Jean Review

The "ellie" jean is designed and sewn in Los Angeles USA specifically to benefit the ellie fund. A generous portion of the selling price goes directly to the ellie fund, which is dedicated to helping women undergoing breast cancer treatment and their families.

My Thoughts: I chose to review the "Ellie" Bootcut Jeans ($119). For someone who is uber picky when it comes to jeans, I love the fit and style of these jeans. Not all brands are true to the size, but this brand nailed it right when it comes down to size. These darkwash, bootcut, mid-rise jeans are made with 98% Cotton and 2% Spandex to ensure an exceptional fit and dreamy like comfort. Pardon my lack of tactfulness, but you will love your booty in these jeans! With all of that being said, these designer jeans are made with the utmost quality. They're perfect for any day and will give you a surge of confidence since they will make you look good. This company offers two models, a curvy bootcut and a high rise straight leg. Between the two, they can fit a lot of women!

Raw Earth Wild Sky’s Holiday/Winter 2010 "Undercover" collection is inspired by the strong, fearless women from WWII. Each piece takes an alias of a former female spy.

But who are these ladies? Says Raw Earth Wild Sky Designer Samantha Robinson, “Some were celebrities, others lived lives of secrecy in other countries under assumed names with different identities. All of them risked their lives for their countries and believed in freedom. These women were alluring yet mysterious hence our name 'Undercover'.”

Made of organic cotton and manufactured in Los Angeles, the collection consists of earth tones including verde, ivory, charcoal, and black, shown are shown in the photos with 1940's signature dark plum lipstick.

Sleeping Beauty

This past Thanksgiving I made sure my house was clean, refrigerator was packed and most of all my Turkey day outfit was set, all before my guests were arriving for a long holiday weekend. Here I thought I was ahead of the game, until the late evening time came. As I went to put my pajamas on my heart sank, I suddenly realized I don't have an appropriate pair to wear! On any other given day what I wear to bed is what it is. However, with a house full of guests you want your pajamas to be like, well...another outfit.

So I searched...and ordered this Three-Piece Pajama set from Victoria Secret. I love that it comes with a three-quarter length cardigan which not only will keep me warm this holiday season but also is a great cover-up for when I have future guests. I was also pleased at the price, for a three piece set it was reasonable and is currently on sale at www.victoriasecret.com.

Now I am ready to be a sleeping beauty....
