For the Manicured Mom.

My Mother drives me insane when it comes to nail care. She ONLY gets pedicures in the Summer, and never even had a manicure. I sometimes wonder where I came from!!!

Just in case your Mom is different than mine and loves to pamper her nails, I have found a real treat for her.

essie_spring.jpgThis is Essie's new Spring Collection called Starting Over, $45. In this set has is complete set of new colors:

E-Nuff Is E-Nuff - a cherry red
My Way - sheer baby pink
Pinking Up The Pieces - iridescent pink
Read-Y Set Ex - orange red
Starter Wife - sheer pink
Wife Goes On - true red

P.S. Don't let her think you are insinuating anything with the name of the collection or shade names.


Spring Candles.

Candles may not be the most personal gift, but they are a nice gift for possibly an aunt or grandmother, especially when you do not want to make a huge production out of it.

One of my favorite candle companies is Lumiere. All of Lumiere's candles are hand poured daily from the best ingredients by skilled artisans. They use only the best quality ingredients and use their exquisite craftsmanship required to make an exceptional product.


They are offering a new Spring Collection, that is so in tune to the season. In this set are 3 - 4oz. candles in the scents of Lilacs in Rain, Chamomile & Lavender, and Fresh Air. This collection retails for $30.00.

You can shop for this collection and many more of Lumiere's beautifully scented candles at The Luxury Candle Company.


BE a Bronzed Babe!

Bare Escentuals has yet another fabulous Today's Special Value on QVC. And I am so excited because I have these products! Yipee!

I was planning on writing them up next week, but I can't help myself today because you won't beat this deal from QVC.

This is the Bronzed Babe Collection, which is a  3 piece set with a brush to give us the ultimate faux tan. It starts with a bottle of body self-tanner.  This Faux Tan Sunless Tanner glides on beautifully and gives you an instant tan while slowly staining your skin with DHA, for a longer lasting tan. Note this is not for the face, just for the body. Next, there are two mineral products for the face. One is Bare Minerals Faux Tan All Over Face Color and the other Bare Minerals A Little Sun All Over Face Color. I like to use the Faux Tan swept all over my face, with A Little Sun on my cheeks, over across my nose, on my forehead, and chin - naturally where you usually get a bit more sun.

Act fast to be a Bronzed Babe soon, as it is a special today only from QVC for just $52.48 (yes, they have strange price points). But as these retail individually for $126 -  it is just less than half price if you were to purchase them separately.

Who is going to join me in this bronzing fun.

And, oh yeah.  This will make a great gift for that Bronzed Babe (wannabe) Mom too!
