Happy Birthday Caci - My Jr. Beauty Blogger in Training!

I cannot believe that my little girl is all grown up. Today my daughter Caci turns 13 - officially a teenager, as she says. We are headed to the beach and then back for cake and presents with family tonight. Happy Birthday, Doodles! She is having a huge 13th birthday party in September when her friends are all back in town and they are all back to school.

Caci loves to help me try out my beauty products and we had a great idea for a "tween" beauty blog. Caci named it Beauty in beTween. Though she keeps telling me she is a teenager now, I think it has been said that a tween is a 10 - 15 year old. Please correct me if I am wrong. Regardless of what it is, Caci is doing a little Summer project that will hopefully go on longer than the Summer, and has started this little beauty blog - just for girls her age. And she is even recruiting a few girls her age to help her with some guest posts too.


I think she is doing a phenomenal job. Please do go on over and say Hi to Caci. I am really proud of her effort here. She is working hard and is not only sharpening up her typing and computer skills, she is practicing grammar, spelling and research - even though it is just beauty products.  I am so proud! And when you do go on over to read it, remember that she is just 13! WOW! She has opinions and isn't afraid to share them. But mostly she is happy, excited, and wants to meet more girls her age who are trying to make themselves feel just a little more beautiful - on both the inside and the outside. 

Let me know what you think! I am very proud in more ways than one. Love you, Caci.

Beauty Duty - July 16, 2008.


It is our beauty duty to share with you some of this week's best in beauty!

A Touch of Blusher takes you beauty-shopping in Tokyo.

All About the Pretty had her co-worker try a new straightening balm. Now she is in love with Redken Align 12.

SugarShock Beauty is worshipping at the altar of Ojon's Tawaka "The Ball".




I am in amazement over CoverGirl WetSlicks AmazeMint Lip Gloss. These gorgeous glosses not only leave your lips full of gorgeous color and pure diamond shine, you are instantly freshened as these glosses include Peppermint Oil from Crest. Amazing, right?


When applying, you feel the instant cooling sensation. And while it is not a full on overbearing peppermint smell, it is scented to make you smell like your just brushed your teeth. It tastes amazing too.

There are 13 colors in the collection, with three of them blue-based to even make your teeth look whiter. So if you are looking for that added bonus, make sure you check for the shades Plum Crazy, Un-Wined, and Toast-ed. The rest of the colors are: Pink Positive, Everything's Rosy (the perfect Summer pink and my pick of the collection), Tickled Pink, Sillylily, Red Riot, No Care Bare, Freedom of Peach, Slaphappy, Merry Berry (if you are looking for the perfect berry colored lippie, try this one) and Happy Hour.

Fresh breath - white teeth - glossy lips! Good enough for me! Pick them up at the drugstore for $4.99 now to see how much you love them.
