Hot snot my gorgeous friends!
I love hot sauce-and not just heat, but flavor!
I recently tried four flavors of hot sauce from Louisiana that are home made recipes and better than the big batch bottles of hot sauce.
 
I rated them by how I liked them best:
1. Tigator or Christy and her Man sauce -this is the best!
2. I Married My Hottie sauce
3. John and Melisa
4. Deanna and Louis

The Cajun Gourment Sauces company can be reached at 337-394-6097

So if you are looking for a holiday gift for the person who has everything, think about commissioning a hot sauce flavor for them!
Now…if only these came in a ghost pepper flavor!

6 Beauty Treatments That Can Save Your Life

If getting pampered wasn’t appealing enough, here’s another reason you should have regular spa days: Getting these six health and beauty treatments regularly can help you live a longer and happier life. See how adding these treatments to your routine can save your life now

Hello Gorgeous!
I just tried some samples of Arizona local hand crafted soap maker Bellus Soaps of Avondale.
The soap contains grapeseed oil, coconut oil, olive oil and shea butter.

You too can get a free sample of the Bellus Soaps goodness (make sure and note if you want cherry blossom, vanilla sugar or unscented!) by sending an email requesting a sample and put FREE SAMPLE in the subject line.

Send to:  support @ bellussoaps.com

I’ve used it to remove my makeup and got a good deep clean. I’ve also used the cherry blossom scented Bellus Soap in the shower, and it left my whole body lightly scented yet deeply moisturized.

Ordering is easy, and a large bar is just $14.95 with free shipping in the United States.

 It’s worth giving Bellus Soaps a try if you prefer natural products, hand crafted small batch products as well as paraben free!

When you shop Bellus Soaps you are helping to support a small local business-so get shopping for your self and gift giving needs!

7 Worst Powders Ever

Our readers say these powders make them look cakey, orange, or even worse — break out

7 Worst Powders Ever

This is a TotalBeauty.com face makeup article

Powder is one beauty product you can’t live without. It banishes your oily t-zone, covers up your blemishes, and gives you poreless perfection — if you’re using a good powder that is. Readers say these seven powders do none of the above. Check out this list before falling prey to another disappointing product.

See list

NO. 7: L’OREAL PARIS TRUE MATCH NATURALE SOFT-FOCUS MINERAL FINISH, $15.25

TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 6.9

“This stuff gives me wrinkles. It emphasizes every pore, line, and imperfection on my face.”

NO. 6: E.L.F. MINERAL FOUNDATION, $5

TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 6.9

“This does nothing to improve your complexion. It has no coverage.”

NO. 5: COVERGIRL TRUBLEND MINERALS LOOSE POWDER, $7.79

TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 6.8

“This is too shimmery for everyday use. No one wants to sparkle all the time.”

Hello Gorgeous!

Oh-it’s that time alright. It’s already pre-holiday season retail according to my local Costco due to the fact that there are halloween costumes on one side of the aisle and Christmas wrapping paper on the other.

So to keep in step, here is your first fragrance holiday round up series!

Beyonce Midnight Heat is another winner in her line of perfumes, and it’s available at mass retailers everywhere and sells in price ranging from $33 to $59 depending on where you buy and what size.

 Halle Berry has a new scent in Closer which sells for about $35, and is available as of September 2012. Perfumer Jacques Cavallier combined unusual contrasts of sensual and feminine notes and classical masculine fougere accords in this composition. The result is a modern feminine floral – woody – fougere fragrance. It opens with accords of ozone, wild raspberry and water lily. The heart includes mimosa, the actress’ favorite flower, along with violet, cedar and fougere accord. Vanilla pod, mahogany, cashmere and musk in the base form a lingering trail. (fragrance notes from www.fragrantica.com)

Playboy VIP-another scent in the Playboy line of fragrances-it definitely is a younger scent and would appeal to a college demographic.
It opens with accords of nectarines and peony, with apple, red fruits and vanilla flower in the heart and the base made of cashmere, sandalwood and musk (fragrance notes from www.fragrantica.com) It sells in the $20 range.

Now the Krigler OUD for Highness 75 can be purchased online or at The Plaza in New York. A 3.4 oz bottle is $505.00. Custom Made fragrance created in 1975. Joining again the collection in 2010. Oud For Highness 75 has been created in honor of its Royal Highness of Jordan combining Crushed Royal Asian Oud, Amber, Sandalwood, Saffron and Honey.

Combining cultures and traditions, this fragrance is a Royal testimony to Oud. (notes information from www.krigler.com)

 So get busy saving for your holiday splurges so you can be a savvy shopper and save money, not use credit and incur fees and have a fun family time without the pressure of bills calling!

Here’s a short wrap up video!

 Hi all!
I just  got introduced to a new beauty product from Osmotics called Blue Copper Lip and Tuck-it’s a gloss that plumps and hydrates. It was created by Francine Porter and is an Allure Best of Beauty winner.

My sample is blue in color and called Natural though it goes on smooth and sheer with a bit of shine. Love it! There is a wee tingle-but not a sting.

It has a very faint scent and no real taste-which is a good think after eating off my DiY Kool Aid lip stain. It sells on the Osmotics website for $35.00 and look in the events page-there are Nordstroms and Dillard’s in store events going on through the month of September!

Here’s a short video to introduce you to Blue Copper Lip & Tuck from Osmotics!
