Microdermabrasion without Chemicals? It Works with Baiden Mitten!

Microdermabrasion without Chemicals? It Works with Baiden Mitten!

****Warning**** Some images contained within may be graphic. These are actual photos of my results with the Baiden Mitten. Yep, some of it is gross. But boy HOWDY. The results are incredible. You’ve been warned. I am not one for putting a bunch of products in, on, or around my body. Before I got sick (with all the chronic stuff), I rarely took a pill for anything. And throughout my life, I have been careful with what I use on my skin – face and body. So when … Read more…


3 Reasons to Change the Way You Shower

3 Reasons to Change the Way You Shower

There was really no reason to change the way we showered. It was perfectly acceptable to just be getting in there, running some water, using some soap, and rinsing off. It’s a shower. Period. In fact, truth be told, one should be grateful that the opportunity TO shower is available. And I am. Truly. However, I recently discovered that by changing just one little thing about our shower opened up a whole luscious list of possibilities behind that curtain, and I just had to share – 3 reasons … Read more…


A Gentle Cleanse and Refinish from Bioque

A Gentle Cleanse and Refinish from Bioque

I already know that Bioque makes a good product – having gotten to try love their Pronto cream awhile back. So when I went in search of a gentle cleanse and refinish, I once again turned to Bioque for my skin care needs. I am not high maintenance. (Not in that regard, anyway, haha.) I want something that is easy and kind to my face. While I have some problem areas that are being addressed separately, I was looking for a cleansing product that would be gentle, yet … Read more…


Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula – It Just Feels Good

Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula – It Just Feels Good

It just feels good. I’m not one for putting a bunch of gunk on my face. I never have been and probably never will. Which is why I love this Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula from Elleda. It’s light, organic, and just feels good on my face after applying it. As I age, I realize that there are ways to stall the process of looking older. Some folks say that ‘it’s better to look good than feel good’. Perhaps that’s true; however, I prefer to also feel … Read more…


Hair How-To: Upside Down French Braided Top Knot

Hair How-To: Upside Down French Braided Top Knot

It’s been done before – this upside down french braided top knot. I’m not the first and won’t be the last, to put it out there on the intertubes. But when I first thought of creating this hairstyle on Mags, I didn’t even bother to search out upside down french braided top knots. I just knew I wanted to braid her hair (in the french style) upside down and then whip it into a bun on top, at the end. Quick ‘n’ easy, like, too. That’s right, not … Read more…


Bioque Pronto: Takes Care of Wrinkles Just That Fast!

Bioque Pronto: Takes Care of Wrinkles Just That Fast!

Bioque Pronto. I love the name of this product. Pronto. If it’s going to happen (and I am a must-see-results kind of girl), I surely don’t mind it happening pronto. Call it impatience if you will; I’m willing to bet that I’m not the only one with “instant gratification” issues. (Okay, that’s probably a life lesson to be explored later on – I really do never know what’s going to come from my head through my fingers, sometimes.) ANYway… Bioque Pronto. It’s in the name. This wrinkle(s) and … Read more…

Easy Eyebrow Wax (with pics) – at home with Sally Hansen!

Recently, I had the opportunity to wax some eyebrows that had never been done before. Oh goodness, if you’ve ever gotten a hold of virgin eyebrows, you KNOW my excitement. Or not. I guess it depends on what excites you. ANYway. Fresh eyebrows. For the plucking. Or waxing, first. ACCK. I should start over. Today I am going to share with you an easy eyebrow wax – at home with Sally Hansen. This isn’t a review of Sally Hansen, exactly. Though I have used their waxing product exclusively … Read more…
