Taya Beauty Amazon White Clay Line Giveaway


Hair seems to be the most neglected part of the beauty routine.  The skin and face get all the glory during winter with exfoliants, serums and deep moisturizers.  Hair though, faces the same harsh conditions but added with it are the heat treatments, color treatments, tight pony tails, sun damage and gobs of product to make it stay put, look glorious and do what you want it to!

The Taya Beauty Line is a discovery into great product that will rescue your hair from winter and leave it looking fabulous.


Taya Amazon White Clay Beauty Line

I received the Buriti Nut Discovery Kit to explore the entire Taya Beauty selection tailored towards my tired tresses.  I like to highlight my hair and it often takes a beating with frequent washings after swimming and running…a little bit of TLC was just what it needed.



Taya Beauty Hair Masque

Buriti Nut Intensive Repair Mask is just delicious on your tresses.  Winter conditions can dry out your tresses- especially if you have long locks, color treated or use heat styling tools on a daily basis, you need to wake up your tresses with a dose of Buriti Nut Oil, Brazil Nut Oil and extracts of Raw Parsley.  

Put this masque on while you’re in the shower and let it sit for 20 minutes as you go through your routine and you’ll give mane a dose of much needed healing and see results in better elasticity, vibrance and softness.

Giveaway! All-Natural Body Balm from Vintage Tradition ($60+ Value)

December 30, 2013 By: Stephanie Halligan Category: Beauty, Health & Fitness

I don’t use the term “life-changing” loosely, but I’d like to pull out the trump card here and say that the Vintage Tradition Body Balm literally changed my life (or at least my skin).vintage tradition giveaway

Last winter, I had a terrible case of dry, chapped skin. Thanks to the dry, cold weather, it started getting so bad that my shoulders and upper arms were completely covered in patches of dry skin. No matter what form of over-the-counter lotion I bought, it just would not disappear.

But then I found Vintage Tradition Body Balm.

Within 5 days of applying their body balm to my dry skin, the patches of dry skin were gone. GONE. Not reduced, not better. Gone.

Just what’s in it that helped heal my dry skin so quickly? On their website, Vintage Tradition tells folks: “Don’t put anything on your body that you wouldn’t put in your body!” A crazy, bold claim, but it’s true: their product is made entirely from natural, gentle ingredients.


  • Tallow — from 100% grass-fed beyond organic cows
  • Olive oil — extra virgin, beyond organic
  • Essential oils — a wide variety, considered “beyond organic”

Tallow and olive oil? Yup, you read that right! The body balm is a non-greasy, almost whipped-like balm. It feels light and hydrating on the skin without leaving any greasy residue. And a lot goes a long way – one jar of the body balm lasted me an entire year.

I’m not the only Vintage Tradition Body Balm believer. Check out their list of satisfied customers and testimonials. From eczema to dry skin to healing burns, Vintage Tradition is a balm for every part of your body: face, lips, hands, feet, and all over. It’s especially made for dry, chapped, calloused, cracked, and sun-damaged skin. According to their testimonials page, many folks have also used it as a safe skin treatment for their very young children.

Finally, Vintage Tradition offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee – that’s hard to beat!

Giveaway! Mirth & Merry handmade soap

November 20, 2013 By: Mary Ann Williams Category: Beauty

I think handmade things are sexy.  Especially when you receive the box and you can *smell* the contents as your package is being handed to you.  Such is the joy of receiving handmade soap by Mirth & Merry and they are giving away soaps for the Holiday Season just for us!  Can you say (scented) stocking stuffer?

Alethia is on a roll here!  She’s making another appearance in the form of networking… she introduced me to her friend, Jeremy, who became completely entranced by the art of soap making and so he started his own business.  I love it!  These soaps have so much care and love put into them.  The ingredients are all natural and talk about FRESH (!!)… holy moly.  My nose is still on a scent high.

I think I’ve smelled almost everyone one of their soap varieties and they’re divine.  They’re creamy and dreamy when used at the sink or in the shower, too!  I like that I know exactly what is on my hands and body when I’m using this soap… no suspicious or unhealthy ingredients.

Mirth & Merry is giving away FOUR prizes for this giveaway (we love multiple winners!) and if you’re a lucky winner, you’ll receive two bars of Mirth & Merry soap (the scents are a surprise!).  This giveaway is open to US residents only.  Good luck!

Bonjour Jolie Subscription Review & Giveaway

May 10, 2013 By: Shannyn Category: Beauty

Bonjour Jolie Subscription Box Giveaway through May 31st 2013!

I’ve seen a few subscription boxes geared for women’s “time of the month” but Bonjour Jolie is one of the few boxes I feel does it right.  With Bonjour Jolie, you’ll get a monthly box geared for that time of the month, but with some really spot on pampering perks beyond feminine care products-  this box was gorgeously wrapped and had some awesome beauty products that will have you swooning!

Bonjour Jolie Review & Giveaway

Every woman needs tampons and pads during her period, but seriously- we WANT some new lipgloss, luxurious body lotion, pampering bath salts and of course some delicious teas and some Advil (cramps suck!)

This box was packed with value and everything came wrapped like a gift in gorgeous bags, tissue and there were some pink rose petals in there as well!  I loved the Stila lipgloss and the Hempz and Pureology samples.  The tea is delicious and of course, the Advil will come in handy.  Two things I adored about this box was that the quality was high for only $16, so you get plenty of value and the presentation is superb.  Additionally, I loved the convenience of it-  I can easily stock my purse with the items in here to take to work, on a trip or keep in my “purse emergency kit” for a time I might need it.  Value and convenience- plus, it looked PRETTY. We have a winner!

Additionally, Bonjour Jolie paired with 2 Chicks With Chocolates for some delicious truffles in their mini sampler box.    You will have everything you need for “on the go,” but also, to sit at home and destress with some hot tea, delicious chocolates, bath salts and spa products to feel fabulous from head to toe!
