Pretty Woman Kingfisher Feather Polish Review

I love the look of textured nail polish. However, many textured polishes tend to scrape off easily making the effort of applying them practically useless. The Feather polishes from Pretty Woman are another story entirely. You can achieve a textured look that is still smooth to the touch minimizing Read more

BodyHonee All Natural Hair Removal Wax Review



In an effort to be  more well groomed in 2013, I thought I would begin the new year with an all out at home waxing session.  I mean what better way to get rid of the old and welcome the new, soft, smooth and newly hairless, than by ripping it out by its roots?

In an ode to winter I had neglected my usual waxing for quite some time, after all, isn’t a bit of extra hair natural insulation?

Permanent Hair Removal for Women, Men Give the Gift of Hair Removal

Give the gift of permanent hair removal
Need a fresh gift idea for an upcoming celebration? Why not try something unique this year instead of falling into a gift giving rut of flowers, chocolates or department store gift cards. Both the men and women in your life, whether it’s that special someone, a parent, sibling or close friend, will appreciate the long-lasting effects of permanent hair removal. And we’re not talking about gift wrapping an over the counter disposable razor or messy waxing kit seen on late night infomercial. We’re talking about laser hair removal – the FDA approved method for achieving permanent hair removal results.

What is laser hair removal?
Before you commit to this new gift idea, you’ll need to know – what is laser hair removal? Laser hair removal works by sending light energy into the hair shaft to disable it from growing. The process is repeated over each treatment area over a period of several months to ensure that each hair is disabled and permanent hair removal is achieved. Laser hair removal can be performed by a certified laser technician in an office or salon, or an at-home system can be purchased to use in the privacy of your own bedroom or bathroom.   Read more
