Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

If you have daughters, you know how they love to mimic mommy. All my daughters' loved to play in my makeup, with or without my permission. It can be quite messy and cost a bit of money to replace. I still remember when Daisha was three years old and managed to get into my makeup case. She did a really wonderful job of creating her own look. With my oldest, Briana, just now starting to wear light makeup the younger ones are fascinated and want to be like their big sister.

Not wanting them to have real makeup, I had a problem on my hands. Most play makeup in stores, look just like that, pretend. I wanted something more life like. I found a solution to all my problems at Lipstick and Bowties. They offer Pretend Makeup that look and feel real!

Look at all those amazing colors! I couldn't get over how real the eyeshadow looked. It looked like it was ready to wear and go. Also comes with an eyeshadow brush.

I love this full size compact. It has a real mirror inside. Plus it comes with a real brush to heighten the imagination.

Of course we can't forgot the lipstick to make our lips shine!  The lipstick is made from non toxic baked clay. Twists up and down just like a real lipstick.

No makeup is complete without the blush to add a touch of color to those cheekbones.

Mascara is completely clean and empty. 

My younger daughters are having a blast with this makeup kit. They play beauty shop all the time. This is the perfect accessory for any beauty loving girl, that is not ready to wear makeup, but wants to pretend.  All girls just wanna have fun!

Whiff Love From Harvey Prince

Harvey Prince has some of the best perfume around. From serious to flirty perfumes, they have a scent for every woman. Each scent has a back story behind it and make wearing them fun. I received many samplers to test out. Let me tell you I had a hard time choosing what to wear everyday!

Your daily cure for the common bore. 

For the trendy woman on the go, Skinny Chic will keep your energy up and your cravings down. With inviting notes of crisp green apple, sweet mint, and gentle lotus blossom, this light, aromatic mix will exude confidence and turn heads. Recharge, rejuvenate, and conquer with the hip scent that puts you in control. Be gorgeous, be sexy, why not be Skinny Chic? 

Green Apple, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Marine Mint, Lotus Blossom, Fennel, White Cedarwood, Warm Amber, Iris. 

Style: Energizing, Zesty, Super Chic.

The spritz that greets you with a smile.

The world's a busy place. Let time stand still for a moment and with one spritz taste the sweetness of Meyer lemon in your cold glass of lemonade. Smell the pink plumerias budding and revel in the jubilant tweets of the nearby hummingbird. Before diving back into reality, say "Hello" to your body and soul.

Harvey Prince is thrilled to bring you a splash of spring with our latest, hippest, most energizing fragrance, "Hello." With a twist of citrus in homage to that fresh squeezed glass on the breakfast table. The subtle yet, invigorating notes are layered with Summer Forsythia, an early Spring floral, to bring out the blossoming glow within you. As the scent wears through the day, you'll be warmly greeted with the enchanting smell of Pink Plumerias, found in the fragrant floral Leis of Hawaii bestowed upon guests, friends, and loved ones.

Embrace your surroundings; reach out, smell, touch! The warm and soft rays of sunshine on your shoulders will keep you company through the day. Take a whiff and just say, "You had me at Hello."

Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian Vanilla,   

          Sensual Musk.

Reawaken the young, romantic you.

The blooming of the Cherry Blossom in Japan signifies the beginning of spring: new beginnings, a new season, and a new day. It's time to find your own new beginning with Cherie Blossom.

A handsome French man whispers "ma chérie" to his beloved. Her lips are a delicate red, and she smells of sweet cherries. She knows the power of her beauty. She is flawless. She is ageless. Notes of pink grapefruit dance down her neck--the scent of eternal youth. She is his dream.

Cherie Blossom is the epitome of both rebirth in Japan and the power of a classic French seductress. Sweet, soft hints of Somet Sakura mingle with pink grapefruit and vanilla. A cool musk adds a touch of sophistication. Together, these fragrant notes play a song no man can resist. The woman who dares to wear Cherie Blossom feels timeless, and in truth, we look the way we feel.

: Somei Sakura (Cherry Blossom), Pink Grapefruit, Cool Musk, Vanilla 

So who is Harvey Prince?

Harvey Prince knows that every scent tells a story. When a woman wears perfume, she’s doing more than just putting scent onto her skin. Rather, she is expressing herself. Think about it: we can show who we are by the way we look or even by the way we sound. Shouldn’t our scent also say something about us? At Harvey Prince we craft inspired, high-quality fragrances, each with its own spirit and story. 

To the Harvey Prince woman, sensuality goes deeper than mere sexuality. To be truly sensual is to be always aware of everything around you, to relish every one of the five senses, to derive meaning and find beauty in the world, and to embody that wonder in yourself. We wish to speak to your heart, to educate you and inspire you! We hope your new fragrance will bring out the magic you have inside of you.

I absolutely love Harvey Prince. Their scents are excellent and leave you smelling good all day. I love their promise and what they stand for. They truly care about women and their customers! Each and every scent I wore got comments. You have to get some Whiff Love of your own.

Get Stylish With Chic Alerts

It's common knowledge that I have coronary heart disease. However the one thing I didn't have was a medical alert bracelet I could wear confidently. The standard ones are small, loose, and have a tendency to get caught up on everything. Not to mention to get one custom engraved can cost you plenty of cash! Enter Chic Alerts to the rescue.

 Let me introduce you to some of the most unique, stylish medical alert id bracelets I have run across, that won't kill your budget!

The owner Kate Ward, Chic Alert Medical ID, Founder & CEO,  has been Living with Type 1 Diabetes since '99.  Hear what she has to say about her company!

After over fourteen years of living with Type I Diabetes, moving to New York City, drastically changing my lifestyle, and never wearing any sort of Medical alert jewelry - I decided it was time for a change. New York City can be very demanding and fast pace - it is a place where you are always on the go. Knowing that, it was stupid of me to not be wearing anything. Although being very controlled with my Diabetes, I would worry - what if I had a diabetic attack on the subway, at the gym, on my walk to work? I needed something to put my mind at ease. Having spent the 14 years prior looking for chic, fashionable & trendy Medical jewelry I knew there was none to be had. 

With over eight years’ experience in the Fashion Jewelry industry - with experience in Merchandising, Sales, Marketing, Buying and Consumer Economics paired with an eye for fashion, I knew it was time to put my knowledge to the test and design my own line. Creating designs and samples, I began wearing my own pieces while I explored how to make this dream a reality. To create a jewelry line that would serve a medical purpose while at the same time being a trendy, fashionable and chic accessory to any outfit - one that you would be happy and proud to wear regardless of your medical condition or fashion situation. 

More than a great fashion medical jewelry line, Chic Alert Medical ID is near and dear to my heart being someone living with a chronic illness. Together we can spread the word that living with a Medical Condition can be stylish. 

About Chic Alert Medical ID

Chic Alert Medical ID is passionate about providing all of those living with a medical condition a jewelry line that is fashion forward, trendy and cool, while at the same time serving as their lifeline in case of a Medical emergency. Just because you have a medical condition you shouldn’t be limited to poor design and non-stylish products just to make you feel worse about yourself and your condition. Chic Alert Medical ID is here to change that by offering truly fashionable on-trend costume jewelry ID pieces that can be accessorized with any outfit, allowing the wearer to feel confident that they will be properly cared for in a medical emergency, but while doing it in style! Chic Alert Medical ID believes that Medical ID jewelry can be fashionable while still serving its purpose.

Info on Medical IDs

Roughly one out of every five people living in this world has a medical condition that paramedics and doctors need to know about right away in case of a medical emergency. If you have a chronic disease, medical condition, an allergy or take a pharmaceutical drug that could threaten your life it is highly recommended that you wear some form of medical alert jewelry to communicate your message. A brief description of vital medical information engraved on your Medical ID ensures appropriate and timely Medical care. Wearing a piece of medical alert jewelry offers you peace of mind knowing that you or your loved one will be properly cared for in a timely manner should an unexpected medical emergency arise.

I absolutely love my medical id bracelet. I love how noticeable it is! If something was to happen, my medical information is right there. The paracord is super comfortable and no more dangling bracelets! These are available in women, men, and kids. Wonderful if your child has allergies, when these medical ids are immediately identifiable. 

Don't take any chances. If you or a loved one has a medical condition, a Medical Id bracelet could save your life. I can't express how important it is to have your medical condition accessible, easily and quickly if you are unable to do so.

To get one of these fabulous, stylish Medical ID bracelets stop in at Chic Alerts. Tell Kate this Redhead sent you over!

Easter Basket Decoration

Whether you want to store colorful Easter eggs or enjoy the Easter egg hunts, you would definitely need an Easter basket. The materials include a woven basket, lime-green construction paper, green and pink felt, scissors, and craft glue.

★ Cover a woven basket in lime-green construction paper.

★ Using scissors, cut out the top half of two long green felt strips to resemble grass.

★ Glue them on the outside and inside of the basket. Cover the bottom of the basket with felt as well.

★ Cut out small pink felt flowers, and place them underneath the grass strips to create a beautiful, nature-inspired festive Easter basket.

★ To create the basket handle, cut a 1-by-20-inch strip of felt. Attach it on the inner wall of the basket. If the basket has a handle, then cover it with green felt.

Add your own personal flair or touches to make it one of a kind!
