Lancome's Juicy Tubes World Tour Collection

I was perusing Lancome's web site today and came across the company's latest collaboration with a fashion designer. This time it's the Juicy Tubes World Tour Collection. The designer is Christopher Kane. He's an award winning London based designer who's been rocking the fashion world with his line since 2006. Juicy Tubes are among my favorite products and the World Tour collection really looks spectacular. Each limited edition tube has been decorated with a chic dress by Kane. The collection takes inspiration from cities across the globe that are known for fashion. There are 9 shades to choose from and with shades of neutral, pinks and reds it looks like there is definitely a shade for everyone.

How much do I love Vaseline? Let me Count the Ways

So last night before bed I slathered Vaseline on my feet and slipped on a pair of socks. I do this once a week. Nothing gets my feet smoother. My husband happened to walk in on me last night right in the middle of slathering my left foot. The look of horror on his face was like he just witnessed a murder. I thought he'd seen all my "rituals" as he calls them but I guess I was wrong. After about 10 minutes of trying to explain, to no avail, the benefits of putting Vaseline on my feet I gave up. It did get me thinking though of just how many different uses there are for Vaseline in the realm of beauty. Here are just a sampling. I'd love to hear some of yours.
  • Put on your feet to smooth cracked, dry skin
  • Rub a little into your elbows for smooth skin
  • Use as a lip gloss over lipstick
  • Use alone to soothe chapped lips
  • Apply just a dab on cheekbones to get that dewy look
  • Use as a cuticle cream
  • Use to tame unruly eyebrows

Spring 2008 Make Up Trend: Pastels For The Eyes

One of the hot trends this spring is pastel eyeshadow. Colors like light green, lilac, peach, pink and yellow are especially fresh. Wearing pastels may sound a little scary at first. Use a light hand when applying and add more to build the color as you get more comfortable with the look. I think you'll agree that these colors do a lot to open up the eye area. Plus they look fabulous with all those flirty spring fashions you're buying.

Sexy Spring Scents

Many experts in the beauty industry say you must have a signature scent. I want to be that person with a signature scent. But it's not meant to be for me. I guess you can say I'm a fragrance floozy. Some of my favorites for Spring 08 are:
  • Daisy by Marc Jacobs-It smells fresh and feminine, subtle yet sexy. Perfect for Spring. Love the fabulous bottle too.
  • Supermodel by Victoria's Secret-Both fruity and floral. A playful scent that's sexy for day or night.
  • L, a L.A.M.B fragrance by Gwen Stefani-FreshPear, White Freesia, Rose and Jasmine Petals are just some of the notes in this beautiful fragrance. Great lasting power without being overbearing. Go to to get a free sample.


I must admit I've never tried anything from this company before last week. Some friends went to Israel and knowing my obsession with hand cream brought me back AHAVA's Mineral Hand Cream. AHHHHH!!!! This hand cream has left my hands so incredibly smooth and soft. It's very rich so a little goes a long way. All of AHAVA's products are enriched with minerals from the Dead Sea. The mineral enriched waters of the Dead Sea are renowned for their healing and skin soothing properties. I can't wait to try some of their other products. If you're not planning a trip to Israel in the near future, do not fret. Just visit to learn about and purchase their products.
