Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!

Welcome to the official start of Summer in the U.S. To my readers outside of the United States Memorial Day is a day to remember all this that have served this country and sadly those that have lost their lives in defense of the U.S.  As a woman from a military family (with many friends that have served as well) I have great respect not all for the men and women that have given their lives, but to the families of the service people that support their family members. I’m sure that you will see your social media feeds overload with post about the day. Some will have the traditional cook-out, day at the beach, shopping, or simple peaceful day at home I encourage you not to forget what the day truly means. As a fashion/media/diversity gal I know that it maybe easy to start the Summer with changing your wardrobe, but I promise you we will have enough time for that because the Summer is just getting started.

Summer 2017

The official start of Summer 2017 is just around the corner. Summer is one of my favorite seasons and I love Summer Style. So much so I have planned some great giveaways for those lazy Summer days and endless Summer nights. Stay tuned.

Spread Love Everywhere You Go

Spread the love

 

Welcome to the first full week of  February! I am excited for all the wonderful things coming this month. While I know this month my feel like the lonely hearts club for some I want to spread the love all month love. Now don’t get me wrong I think that we should spread love everyday, but February seems to get a lot of attention.  So among some great giveaways this month you can also expect stylish career tips from international guest blogger Claire Hastings, and some inspiration from me on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay tuned.

Give the gift of beauty

Chronic Beauty 2016

This is the season of giving. Earlier today I made a post about celebrating Giving Tuesday more than one day. This is the season of giving. and if we are truly going to celebrate the spirit of giving then it should include giving that will impact the lives of others in a positive way all year long so I am happy to welcome you to the 2016 Holiday Giving Series.

Our first feature is the Chronic Beauty Campaign , a program created by Lyme Warrior to raise awareness for those that suffer daily with chronic illness. The Center for Disease, Control, and Prevention website reports that “As of 2012, about half of all adults—117 million people—had one or more chronic health conditions.” Which means you or someone that you know suffers from some type of chronic illness. I have battled with Chronic Migraines since my earlier twenties so I know first hand how struggling with a health issue that the world can’t see impacts your life.

The Chronic Beauty Campaign offers you the chance get into the spirit of giving this season via The Chronic Beauty cosmetic bag or calendar which is available for  purchase via their website.

The  Chronic Beauty calendars features a different women battling chronic illness each month. Conditions featured in the calendar include: Cerebral Palsy, Severe Asthma, Lupus, Essential Tremor, Stroke, Diabetes, Chronic Migraines, Degenerative Disk Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Kidney Disease/Diabetes, Lyme Disease, and more.

GIVE! GIVE! GIVE!

This is the time of year that most people are running around trying to get the best deals to give the best gifts, but how about giving a gift that will last all year (and maybe beyond). We think about The day after Christmas Shopping, We sit in front of the computer for Cyber Monday and a few years back we were introduced to Giving Tuesday. I was traveling on Tuesday, (be sure to check out my upcoming Monday post) and in my travels I was reminded of giving at every stop.  During this holiday season I will be sharing various groups and organizations that will benefit from your giving. Stay tuned my feature will be this evening.

True Beauty Tuesday: Luxe by Mr. Bubble

Luxe by Mr. Bubble

It’s that time of year.  The holiday shopping season. Our first True Beauty Tuesday holiday gift idea is from a company that we all know and love.

Every now and again you come across a product that not only amazes you, but everyone you share it with and in some cases even the people that you don’t share it with notice a change in your skin… When people talk about a positive change in your skin and only have great things to say about your new found “glow” You know that you have found a truly outstanding product. Sound to good to be true? Well, I’m being 100 with you. Over the last few months my team and I have been falling passionately in love with Luxe by Mr. Bubble. Yup, you read it correct Mr. Bubble…that childhood favorite that made bath time simply amazing. You can now enjoy the same feeling of bliss that you did from your younger days. If in all the holiday hustle and bustle you want to have a  truly nostalgic  moment I highly suggest Luxe by Mr. Bubble.  You are probably wondering why? Right? You are probably thinking that in the sea of beauty products  that women have to choose from this fall and holiday what makes this one so special.  The “Hue” team has been testing products since early fall and it’s now a week from Thanksgiving and the products that we tested have held true during the change of seasons.

The team and I test several products on women of different ages and backgrounds and everyone pretty much had the same reaction. “Where can I get these products?” If you are looking for some great products for the holidays for the woman in your life or as a gift for yourself stay tuned. Tomorrow we will dive into the products and how you can purchase them.

 

Disclosure: Luxe by Mr. Bubble sent me products to try, all thoughts and opinions are always my own.

Have you ever received something in the mail and become so into it that you forgot about all that you needed to do? Well, that has been me the last week or so with the October 2016 Must Have box sent to me from POPSUGAR. Every time I think that POPSUGAR can’t outdo themselves they once again knock it out the park. Their subscription service is like none other and the October 2016 box does not disappoint. It screams “Hello Fall!”

Lisa Sugar- Power Your Happy – As a founding POPSUGAR Select Fashion member I was super happy that this book was apart of the goodies this month. This book is a very inspiration read. How do I know? I’ve already read it….I was blessed to attend the Power Your Happy event in New York City last month and this wonderful book was a great gift from Lisa Sugar….so I will be gifting the book to someone special in my life since they encouraged me to attend the event. Isn’t Karma amazing?!?

Henri Bendel Umbrella ($58)- OK, I must admit was all giggly after seeing a wonderful Henri Bendel in this box.

My Cup of  Coca  Dark Drinking Chocolate ($4.99)- Love it. Why? Uumm because it is gluten-free and yummy!screen-shot-2016-10-30-at-9-43-50-pm

Morning Culture Rise & Shine mug ($16)- Perfect for drinking my new favorite gluten-free drink in.

Revlon Color Stay Liquid Eye Pen ($8.99)- It’s Revlon….need I say more?

Make up Eraser ($12.00)- Because at the end of the day sometimes you just want to wash it all away.

Lalicious Brown Sugar Vanilla Body Wash ($28.00)- This product smells like heaven in a bottle. Period.

As October comes to a close and you start thinking of those holiday ideas. I would suggest the gift that keeps on giving (each month) A POPSUGAR Must Have box. You can order yours here.

I have excited to share a special coupon code to all my wonderful followers. Include the code SHOP5 (which never expires) to allow your readers $5 off their FIRST Must Have Box!
