How To Sleep Better with Sound Oasis – Worlds Smallest White Noise Machine

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Welcome to November! How can this have happened so fast? There are officially 53 days til Christmas and I’m not even near being ready!What I am ready for is a lot of travel coming up – I’m so excited for the gigs and opportunities! In general, I have trouble sleeping and when the chance to try a sleep aid, like white noise from the “world’s smallest white noise machine’ I took it!

Meet Sound Oasis, they specialize in white noise machines of all types, sorts and makes or models! If you have a baby, tinnitus, insomnia or stress, Sound Oasis has a solution for you.

I received a sample of the smallest white noise machine, it sells for $49.99 on the Sound Oasis website and can be charged via USB, used with ear buds or plugged into an external speaker, which is how I tested it.

When I think “white noise”, I think ocean waves rolling in and out or crashing on the sand and rocks. That’s not the sound this machine makes.

This little black box makes a white noise similar to the television being left on after the station signal goes off.  It’s not a soothing comforting sound to me, it was a static buzz.  You can turn the volume up or down to what is comfortable to you.

I think this could be a good fit for the business traveler or someone who has a baby in the room and you need the constant sound to soothe.

It comes in a wee hard case to protect it while traveling.

You can learn more about Sound Oasis and all they have to offer plus the experts behind their science by visiting their website here.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
How’s your week going? Still hot here in Arizona – we’ve had one chilly day and it was thrill to wear boots finally!

So as my pedicures are going dormant til Spring and my toes are going into boots til Spring, I’m focusing on manicures for the holiday season.

I was just at the House of Achi product launch party in West Hollywood at the Doheny Room and received a sample of a buff beige colored Japanese gel polish. No light needed!

This video shows my first impression and experience with the polish – so if you have any tips for me, please share in the comments!

Not to fear! Arizona wines are here!  In this video I review a red zinfindel and a pink rose. Enjoy the video!

How to help skin transition from summer to Fall with elvis+elvin skincare

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday! I love Mondays! Today’s post and video feature the brand elvis+elvin skincare. I tried a charcoal bar for cleansing and a dual activation mask that was really interesting.

This mask though! It comes in two parts and you mix them together in a bowl and then it becomes this super gelatinous consistency that you spread on the skin and let it dry before peeling off. On hind sight, I wish I would have applied this with my mask fan brush.

Watch the video to learn the details and get your own elvis+elvin skincare to help transition from hot sweaty summer skin to dry needs more moisture Fall skin!

Overall, I liked it.

FACE atelier Ultra Skin – My Review

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Say hello and welcome to the month of August! This year, 2017, is now officially more than half over and Christmas is only 146 days away.

With that in mind and upcoming holiday events and photos – it may be time to try a new face product, so meet FACE atelier Ultra skin foundation.

Many many thanks to them for sending me a sample in the color 6.  I love the lightweight feel and  texture. The finish is beautiful and dries down to a soft powder that can be built up from sheer to full coverage. I really like the look and  feel, though, I experienced a series of pimples and breakouts along my lower cheeks and jawline.

Gack! I really like the product but won’t be able to continue using it because it took a full week to heal the breakout and I had to work like crazy during that time and I can’t risk another breakout. I know for me, when I saw that the silicone was a major ingredient in this PETA approved product, I knew right then that I was risking a pimple or two.

It’s worth a try, and a sample can be purchased from their website so you can try it before committing to the $50.00 full size price.

Meet Ultra Skin – the ultimate lightweight foundation!  Its
silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin
finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, soufflé-like
texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a
foundation that can be applied like a moisturizer without compromising
performance.  Ultra Skin’s 11 shades cover the lightest to richest
complexions and are color-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation.
There are three new shades – .5, 8.5,11.5 – that can be also used to
adjust Ultra Foundation shades.
No primer needed!  It’s built into Ultra Skin’s
sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing
the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The flawless, satin finish doesn’t
need powder to set and thanks to the silicone-based formula, it’s ideal
for mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Read more about silicones.
Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with the
FACE atelier’s complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation’s
beloved adjusters: 0-, 0+, 0++ and Heat. The pump applicator and tube
make it perfect for travel or a pro kit. Suitable for all skin types,
water and sebum resistant Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid
and arid climates.

How to use the Beauty and the Beast makeup color story from LORAC for everyday wear

Hi ya GorgeousHow’s your Monday now? Or should I say, how’s your summer? Here in Arizona, the summer is in full broil and school for the cub starts back in 3  short weeks …or are they short? He is definitely ready to go back and see his friends which brings to mind the question that year round school, with a 2 week break in between semesters would do just fine. On to the makeup!

I recently received some very lovely samples from LORAC of their color story collection for the reboot of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Something to know going forward, I am ride or die for the original
1990’s animated version and none to thrilled about another warmed over
version of an Oscar winning trophy of a film.  In short, I have not seen the film yet, and when it arrives on Netflix, I will let you know my thoughts.

In the meantime, I think that LORAC has knocked it out of the park again, with Disney, and another amazing, collector edition of a makeup color story for a film. I was SO impressed with the Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales collection ,though this is just as stunning.

 

I have the eyeshadow pallet, cheek color palette, lipglosses and lipsticks and I’m beyond delighted! The colors are everyday perfect and if you know LORAC products, you know how soft, silky, smooth, blendable, pigmented, wet or dry they are!

 

I love all of the lip colors and the lipsticks or lip glosses can be worn alone, with liner, paired together or mixed and matched!

If you are a fan of anything Disney, Belle, Beast, the film or LORAC and special editions, rush to get these now because who knows how long they will be around!

Do You Know The Best Time of Year To Install a Roof? A2Roofing Does!

A2 Roofing knows the best time of year for you to install a new roof! Do you? This question could save you time and  money on the investment in your home in the Ann Arbor Michigan area.

 

There are 5 key reasons to install a roof or do your major roof repair in the SUMMER!

Those reasons are: the weather,  the materials, savings, seasons and vacations!

For major roof repair and installing a new roof you want to have good sunny weather to work in so the contractors can get more accomplished  in the work day as well as not contend with rain or moisture getting in to the seals.

 

Your second reason for installing in the summer is the materials are usually best suited to warmer climate versus a wet and  cold one. Sometimes you have emergency roof repair situations in the winter and spring though if it can be avoided, the summer is the best time for roof repair.

Next, if you install in the summer, that new roof insulation will help  with your energy efficiency in both winter and warm weather by reducing the energy bill.

Followed by seasons and vacations – if the rainy days of spring and icy weather of winter have caused damage to the roof – working  in the summer season will help  expose that repair need in your roof.

 

Finally, the vacations that many people are taking in the summertime will make your project first in line with your favorite contractors.

If you are looking to have a new roof installation or repair the old one you have in the Ann Arbor Michigan area, then contact A2 Roofing today. They are licensed, bonded  and insured with fast, friendly service!  A written quote and estimate is free of charge and can help you develop a plan for your home and business roofing needs.


You can call them at 734-548-9919 or visit them on the web at
