Tracy Anderson Method

Want an A - list body? Celebrity trainer, Tracy Anderson may be a little bit too busy with Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow to help you out personally, but don't worry you can purchase her three new DVDs that will whip your butt into shape. Face it, winter is over, you can't hide out in your sweats anymore. Ti's the season for short shorts and even shorter skirts! If you are like me and hate gyms then an at home workout DVD is for you. There is nothing I hate more then going to the gym and being surrounded by sweaty meat heads. Gross! I love to run, but it's still to chilly for that and the Victoria Beckham diet is making me cranky, so soon I will have Tracy Anderson kicking my behind. I will keep you all posted! If you are interested in joining me on my workout journey you can pick up a copy of any of her three DVDs here.  

PS. One out of the three DVDs is for those of you ladies trying to lose your baby weight! 

Jessica Kagan Cushman Bangles

I love jewelry. I now love Jessica Kagan Cushman. She created the original bangle bracelets with phrases on them. Each bracelet is hand poured resin, hand inked and hand finished. They are fabulous and I love them. Best of all they are limited edition, so get them while you can. The picture above is my favourite one, it reads "If you have to ask you can't afford it" - which will soon be added to my collection. Below are some of my other favourites..

Married to the Mob

If you know me, you know that I don't usually dress like this nor am I big fan of street wear. I like my clothing to be simple and classic. Last summer I had to change it up a little bit after spotting a bright pink T-shirt that read "My Girls Rock Balenciaga & Smoke Mad Marijuana". You know I had to have it, right? If you haven't heard of Married to the Mob, you need to get on it. They are bold, and I love it! If you don't mind a little profanity plastered on your clothing then check out Married to the Mob on Karmaloop. Here are two of my favourite t-shirts from their new collection...

Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss

I laughed so hard when I first saw this. It is just way too good! What are your two favourite things? If your answer is guys and gloss, then you and I have something in common! I really shouldn't say guys....it should be guy, as in one guy, and no I am not talking about David Beckham...although....anyway, back to the topic at hand...guys and gloss! The people at Urban Decay are genius! They have combined guys and gloss into one handy little tube. Whether you go for a man in a suit (yum!), or a casually dressed cutie, Urban Decay has a man for you. And yes, when you tilt the tube, his clothing does come off...how funny is that? I am a fan of Kirk and Timothy. I though about Julio, but the child that comes with him is not necessary.

How To Apply Your "Tan" Like A Pro

Here is a step by step on how to get the perfect tan with self-tanner!

1. Exfoliate skin in the shower with a body scrub, loofah, or scrubby gloves, and shave your legs. The smoother skin is, the better your tan will look. 
2. Don't apply moisturizer to skin. It can prevent the self-tanning formula from taking hold and can result in spottiness. 
3. When skin is 100% dry, apply your self-tanner evenly. Work in every zone to ensure you cover all areas. 
4. Move from head to toes apply with fingers tightly closed (spreading self-tanner with splayed fingers can leave you with streaks).
5. Use light, circular strokes for evenness. 
6. Don't tan the sides or heels of your feet- the thick skin there will soak up the formula. Instead, make your tan fade gradually from your shins to your feet, by blending down softly. 
7. After, applying, immediately scrub your hands with soap and water so your palms don't turn dark. Don't forget to scrub between your fingers and your cuticles! 
8. Last, take a barely- damp washcloth and buff your knees, elbows, around your jaw line, ankles, feet and wrists to blend and soften the colour there and to avoid demarcation lines. If you feel the need to go darker, repeat the process the next day, and so on, until you get the desired colour.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

I recently started noticing that my eye shadow does not last as long as I would really like to it. It is almost completely diminished by around 6 pm. That does not make me happy. So, I started my search for the perfect eyeshadow primer. On my journey I discovered, the award winning Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, but what really caught my eye was Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion in Sin. This is really great because not only does it grab on to your eyeshadow and keep it there, but it has a subtle champagne coloured shimmer that compliments any eyeshadow and it can double as a highlighter! You can also wear it alone on your lids to get an effortless look. This product is exclusive to Sephora so don't go anywhere else searching for it.

Loads of Hope

Looking to do a good deed this morning? Try buying a "Loads of Hope" T Shirt for only $20 and help Total Beauty raise money for people and families that have had their lives destroyed by natural disasters. You will definitely feel beautiful for doing it!

Smashbox Halo Hydrating Powder

Smashbox has released a powder that promises to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in 10 minutes! I have not tried this product, and currently am not at the point in my life where I have to worry about wrinkles, but when I do, hopefully Smashbox Halo Hydrating Powder will take care of my problems. Halo is the first anti-aging powder and contains pure gold, 48 minerals, 11 amino acids and a powerful peptide that delivers anti-aging benefits as well as hydrated and luminous skin. There have also been clinical studies done to show it's effectiveness. Here is what I found on the Smashbox website:
-After 10 minutes there is a 33% decrease in the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes.
-After 6 weeks of use, there is a 67% decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles overall.
With the purchase of the product you also get a handy Kabuki Brush for perfect application as well as a sample of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, which is the best selling primer at Sephora. So, if wrinkles are an issue for you then give Smashbox Halo Hydrating Powder a shot!
