Yes, I am a Featured Person!

Ladies - I feel privileged to be Featured at StyleHive for the category Makeup.

Check out my Hive now, and why don't you take a few minutes to create your own Hive and share your favorite beauty products too.

A bit about StyleHive, from StyleHive:

The Stylehive is new kind of website - a collaborative shopping community.  It is a place where contributors can work together to share and discover the hottest stores, designers, trends, and must have products.

The Stylehive is a collection of all the best products, brands, designers and stores discovered and tagged by the Hive community.

The Stylehive is the unique product and vision of entrepreneur and CEO Michael Carrier. Michael has enlisted a talented team of technology and online shopping experts who are passionate about making it easier to find the most interesting products, brands, and designers on the web, while providing a simple way to save and share these finds with others. 

Based in San Francisco, the Stylehive brings together the distinct worlds of technology and trendsetting fashion, shopping and online retail.

We’ve created tools that enable a community focused on amplifying the “buzz” factor in the online shopping world.

 

It is so cool, I am telling you! I am addicted.

I'm Exhausted!

So, the kids are back to school, and I should be relishing my free time. But for some reason, I have been running around squeezing in every last second of my time without them. And I feel like I keep going. And going. And going.  I am exhausted.  Not just my brain, but every muscle in body is tired and sore too.

So what did I do last night? I took a look into my beauty closet, found the greatest bath soak, and drew one of the best baths I have had in a long time.

My bath soak of choice was The Sea Mineral Soak from The Organic Bath Co.. And the sea minerals sure did the trick.  

Infused with organic white tea and being full of protective anti-oxidants, my bath soon turned into the most muscle relaxing experience I ever got from a simple bath. The soak is also rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids, and flavonoids - not even sure what those last two are :) - but they help me feel relaxed, repaired, and revitalized all at once.

Next time, I want to pair the soak with some of their Better Body Butter to complete the experience. Ummm -  now if I only had the time to lather, rinse, and repeat the whole bath experience every night, I am sure I would feel exhausted no more.
