As a make-up artist I find this to be a little silly. I know there are women out there who are clueless when it comes to make-up, but is this really the solution? Are we THAT lazy that we can’t take the time to learn how to sweep three shades of shadow across our lids separately? I picked up this product recently when shopping for a make-up event I was hosting for my dedicated clients. When I saw it, I just had to try it. In my mind I was thinking “this will never work!” Sure enough, I got it home and handed it to my sister who is not quite as handy when it comes to make-up as myself…that’s being kind (love you!) Was the product terrible?….ehhh I can’t say “terrible”, but it’s far from worth it! Not everyone’s eye shape and lid are the same so how do you expect this to be universal? The bottom, darkest shade should cover most of the lid and this looks more like liner. The highlight should be just under the brow…on my sister it landed more in the crease! The shadow alone is fine. If you used an eye shadow brush to apply each layer yourself, the pigments are pretty decent, but the gimmick just doesn’t work. Sorry L’Oreal…nice try!
It was only a few weeks ago that I said to someone “What ever happened to Jamie Lynn Spears?” It was like she popped out a baby and disappeared. Little did I know, she made her country music debut just about a month ago. I had no idea!
So here she is, sporting a new look. Well….a new look for her, I suppose. Does she not look just like Britney now? I’m not knocking her. She clearly looks up to her older sister.
The 20 year old star began her career on Zoey 101 on Nickelodeon but was forced to leave after her pregnancy. I’m glad to see her back. I always thought she was adorable. She certainly has grown up a lot though.
Jamie was so excited to get her hair done, she posted on twitter with play by play updates. She first received a whole head of extensions to add length and thickness, then hair expert Mallory Baize colored the tresses before she posted a final picture.
I think she looks great. I wish her lots of luck on her new venture!

While browsing through FB I noticed that a salong out in California had mentioned that they donated old towels to “Blankets of Love”. I looked further into it to find out what this was all about.
“Operation Blankets of Love (OBOL) is an award-winning non-profit 501(c)3 public charity. We collect, transport and distribute recycled and new pet-related items to comfort stray, sick, neglected and abused homeless animals in shelters, rescue groups, sanctuaries and foster groups. In addition, as an Emergency Response Team, we partner with those organizations to provide relief and comfort to animals that are displaced or endangered by catastrophe.”
Blankets of Love is located in LA, but I am sure that local shelters here on the island would take any, and all blankets and towels as a donation. Salons go through so many towels. You use them so often they start to get bleached out, or begin to fray…instead of throwing them out, do some good and donate them to help these poor little animals!
It doesn’t cost any money, and it will make you feel really good!

Let’s just pretend for now that I am NOT turning 30 two days before Mother’s Day. Let’s just focus on mom here, okay? You’ve probably given her every piece of jewelry you could think of, you’ve bought her an ipod or an ipad that she never touched, you’ve taken her out to countless dinners and brunches…so what do you get her this year? A trip to the SPA/Salon of course! What mom wouldn’t love to spend the day getting pampered? I’m not a mom, but I know I wouldn’t pass up a day of free nails, blow outs massages and facials!
Last Sunday Ultas all over hosted a special Cut-a-Thon to help raise money for breast cancer research. From 11am-6pm they opened the floor to anyone willing to donate $10. You didn’t even need an appointment. Just walk in and donate $10 and receive your fresh new cut! According to some FB comments I have been reading, the lines were out the door. Lot’s of complaints that people either had to wait too long, or were told they weren’t taking any more since they were too booked. It’s sad to me that people were complaining about this. I think we should all be thrilled that they seemed to have a great turn out. I am sure they raised a good chunk of change…and that was the whole point to the event. My guess is that most people weren’t going there to support breast cancer awareness, but rather for the $10 haircut. Very sad! I wish I had known about this sooner as I would have helped promote it, and maybe gone down for my very own haircut! If you missed this event but would still like to donate, they are still doing their “donate a kiss”. For $1 you get to put a kiss on their wall! So go kiss away, my friends!!
Well this will certainly give you something to think about! I tell all my clients how unhealthy it can be for your hair to wash your hair every day and to try every other day…but this takes it to a whole new level! I can usually go 3 or 4 days, but two weeks might be pushing it! Enjoy this 1950′s tutorial on hair care. It’s quite interesting to think our parents and grand parents treated their hair this way
