Call me crazy, but when I am in the shower using Herbal Essences newest hydralicious shampoo and conditioner I have to fight the urge to start singing Fergie’s “Fergalicious.” Which, if you have been around the block long enough, you know that beat is inspired by J.J. Fad’s Supersonic. (Just throwing out my musical knowledge at you.) But I digress… This new line of swirled shampoos, specifically the Self-targeting line, are a ribbon of red vanilla and whipped aloe to hydrate my hair where it needs it yet not over hydrating the sections that are healthy.
Pink! Everyone knows I cannot get enough of the color pink, so I was totally ecstatic to see that shu uemura has launched The Pink Collection this month! This collection is a series of lipsticks and glosses made with a Pink Hybrid Pigment, one of the purest pink pigments ever discovered and patented by shu uemura. It includes new and unique shades of pink that have never been seen before! The shades range from never before seen light, yellowish, dark and bluish pinks.
If you’re a pink lover and lip gloss addict, you can find the new collection online at www.shuuemura-usa.com and instore at shu uemura boutiques and counters nationwide.
I recently stumbled upon a fairly new skin care line by Nancy Elle. It’s is one that is organic and free of synthetics and is a great alternative for those looking for a healthier way to cleanse and nourish their skin. She offers 3 distinct lines: Active Vitamin C, Sweet Berry and Triple Rose Complex. I had the opportunity to try out two products from the Sweet Berry line; the Exfoliating Cleansing Creme & Facial Mask and the Exfoliating Toner. (I did have the Overnight Night Creme, but unfortunately glass jars go *splat* in my house.)

What I love most about Philosophy’s Cinnamon Hot Dot’s Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath is that is smells like Red Hots Candy. Exactly.
And Red Hots bring back great memories…
It was the summer before 9th grade. I lived in a bathing suit, hung out at the swim park, and ate hard candy everyday. It was an absolutely delicious summer. Candy, sunshine and innocent first kisses. My friends and I played shuffle-board and sucked on lemon drops, while the older boys played ping-pong and ate Red Hots. We explored what it meant to flirt as middle schoolers, but discovered it quite awkward, and so instead we spent the majority of our time psycho-analyzing the opposite sex.
In between rounds of sunbathing, splashing in the lake, and pretending to play shuffle board, we stared at the tanned testosterone gathered behind the ping pong tables and came up with a theory: If a boy offered us a Red Hot, it meant they thought we were hot. Maybe they hadn’t admitted to their friends yet, or maybe they didn’t even know it themselves yet, but subconsciously it had to be true. It was a promising sign, at least.
