I've never been a big fan of resolving to COMPLETELY
change oneself every Jan. 1. Just because it's a brand new year,
doesn't mean ya need a whole NEW you. Why not simply opt for a
little bit better you? Way less pressure.
Here are a few fabulous products that can help you bring a
little bit of better into your beauty routine.
I recently had a consultation, cut, and style at Art and Science
Salon in Evanston and I am now obsessed with the products
co-owner and Creative Director Paul Wilson used to make my hair
bloom and glow. You can thank me later.
If you're looking for a way to combat those lovely lines that
come with age, then Nuance Anti-Aging Smooth and Firm Elixer is the
best bang for your buck. Nuance is a line by Salma Hayek and can be
found at CVS. Love that. It's full
of vitamins A, C and E and has Sea Buckthorn that helps smooth and
hydrate skin. Just what we need in January.
My FAVORITE (and soon to be yours) lip balm ever just got
better. Fresh Sugar lip balms
are the yummiest, most soothing lip balms around. And they taste
like candy. They run about $22 each for the full-size version, but
now they come in a cozy collection of six mini balms in various
colors for $48. Yippee! Keep em' all for yourself, or share them
with a few of your BFFs.
Local Chicagoland mom (of triplets!) and fitness guru Dana
Pieper has come up with a DVD series that will get you up off the
couch and in better shape than ever. If you don't have tons of time
or money to spend on getting fit, you'll love Dana's "EveryBody
Fitness" routines and her highly motivating style. I recommend the
DVD, $20. It's just feels good to pretend punch and kick
