Mother's Day Gifts - SOHO Bags.

I cannot believe that Mother's Day will be here in just two short weeks. If you have not started shopping yet, stick around as I have a ton of great ideas that I will be posting over the next week or so.

Before I get into the gifts of beauty, I thought I would share with you some great bags to hold these gifts of beauty that I will be sharing. Some of my favorite bags are from SOHO Bags. Just look at how pretty!

Whether you are going to fill a bag with some scented lotion and shower gel, or a pretty fragrance, even the latest makeup collection, there is definitely a SOHO bag here ready for the job. Not only will it hold the gift together, it will make a beautiful presentation itself.

The Biore Skincare Challenge.

Need to get your skin under control? Do you have a few weeks? Then take the Biore Skincare Challenge.

Bioré® skincare challenges you to put your skin to the test with a two-week Bioré® skincare regimen. It’s easy: just choose the right challenge for you, use the products for two weeks, and sit back and relax while Bioré® skincare does the hard part. Seven out of ten women saw healthy skin in less than two weeks when using one of the Bioré® skincare regimens—take the challenge and see for yourself.

“Different complexions have different skincare needs,” says dermatologist Dr. Diane Berson. “But consistent care with the right combination of products can radically improve the health of most skin types. I recommend Pore Unclogging Challenge for those with blackheads and buildup. The Breakout Challenge is ideal for those with sensitive skin prone to blemishes and irritation.”

Here is what Joanna lists as in her makeup bag: I always have Clinique Powder, Cargo Bronzer, Covergirl Mascara, Lancome Eyeshadow Quartet, Clinique Blush (Apricot) and Freeze 24/7 Instant Line Smoother. I try and keep it simple, but I love, love, love makeup and have a lot outside of my makeup bag that I don't use on a daily basis, but rather on an occasion to special occasion basis. I would love to win this giveaway to try some new products and learn some new tricks!

Enjoy, Joanna.
