So, I finally bought one!!!
I have watched women,some men and children’s mom’s roll this round sphere on their lips! But it looked so awkward to apply. AND much larger than a set of lips!
So, first as I unwrapped it out of the wrapper and tried to open the container. Call me lame and uncoordinated but I could not get it open for what seemed like forever.
So, once I finally opened it the scent was AMAZING! Cause anything coconut milk count me in!
Next I rolled with much care the wax like dome over my lips…WOW that was no fun and quite the experience. It didn’t feel as luxurious as rotating and applying my lipstick or other lip balms on my lips. It rubbed have my face makeup off and made my lips feel blah.
I wanted to LOVE it! But I didn’t even like it. I hated using it. And my lips were dry as can be after using it. So, you say give it another whirl. Well I did! Day,night,exercising and sleeping in it. It just wasn’t for me!
Have you ever tried it? Do you love it? I feel like a total failure.
Or have you tried any products lately that were NOT for you?
Let’s share. Let’s talk. Post away. I am waiting for ya!
Let’s hear it for the BOYS!

Cole Skin care for MEN founded by skin care expert and professional makeup artist Cole Patterson.
Used by Usher yes, you heard it right (that awesome singer) and other Hollywood hunk notables in Hollywood and beyond.
A few Basic Steps are needed:

Did you know men get cancer of the lips and women don’t typically because we wear lipstick or lip balm. Treat him to a lip conditioner. It also will give him more kissable lips.
Eye gel or cream to soften tissue and lessen the look of lines.
Easy as 1,2,3… just a few ,minutes a day morning and night.
Once a week:
Use a Bentonite clay mask it is a good choice for oily or combination skin and cheap.
Or FarmHouse Fresh creamy Avocado mask for normal to dry skin.
In a pinch a FRESH avocado will do. Slice,take out the pit and mash. Apply to clean dry face. Stay away from eyelids.Leave on face 10 minutes. Rinse and moisturize as usual. Face will feel amazing and skin look hydrated and feel softer.

I found a batch of candles with a manly looking and aromatic twist I simply had to share with you! They might just help you check another gift off your list!
The candles are handmade and poured in sunny Jacksonille Florida by a gentlemen who wears many career hats! The candles are a soy waxed candle with a cotton core wick.What does that mean for you? A HEALTHIER candle to burn in your home or office and it burns clean…no soot candles or stinky smell.
Some ingredients used are natural fragrance blends of: Amber,sandalwood,cedar,bergamont,teak,rosemary,lavender,lemongrass, dragon’s blood. The man you give it too may just be asking for more!!!
The candles illuminate with a beautiful glow and are designed and named by numbers.BATCH No.1, Batch No.2,Batch No.3 and not to be forgotten a Batch No.7.
The packaging is masculine and to me looks like a cross between an old apothecary from years gone by and with a bit of sexy.
Each season since his candle company began he curates a new scent.
Light up the men in your life’s world or even yours with the magic of a fragrant scented candle.
Where can you buy them?

Fall is on its way…you may not feel it yet but it is about to arrive.
It is a magical time of year and the colors are too! We gradually put away our summer wear and pull out our fall clothes for cooler weather. Look effortless this fall with a few easy pieces in beauty and fashion.
I attended this year’s Fashion Group International fall/winter fashion preview in New York City this past April and my former boss the fabulous designer, Diane Von Furstenberg,hosted it and moderated a panel.I can’t get enough of her and her fabulous fashions.
I got to get a sneak peek into what colors of make-up and fashions you will be FALLing in love with.
The colors of the season are a mixed beauty bag of tricks!
Here are a few must haves to update your face wardrobe with:
Skin has never been more in! Take care of it! There are so many new products and formulas. There is really no excuse to why you can’t. Looking good takes a little work but is so worth it.
Ready-to-wear shades for fall and winter are: The color of wine will be sublime along with warm nude, pink fuschia and classic crimson red for your lips.
Eyes can be a mix and match blend of black, white, honey, soft violet, merlot, deep blue, gray, glam gold, and sterling silver. A mixture of matte and shimmer on the face will help you look up-to-date.
Dark, vamp, smoky eyes are so yesterday. Instead define your eyes with a shadow, rich or bright gem colored pencils, and a touch of black or brown under them. Black liner is a staple in my makeup kit, although jewel tone shades are so much more fun and pretty! Some hues I like to use are teal, blue, purple, and green. These shades also make the whites of the eyes look brighter.
The perfect eyebrow is always in fashion. Consult a brow stylist for a personalized, updated look.If you happen to live in sunny Jacksonville Florida;John Brent at Chocolate Blonde Salon is the guy for you! If you happen to live in LA…Damone Roberts is the man!
For the daring, Paperself Lashes come in a decorative array of designs. For example, lashes in the shape of a butterfly, a bird, or even a fish. Faux lashes with tiny gemstones are trending now too.
Lasting Shellac and Gel nails are in the limelight. Manicures and pedicures have never been more popular. It’s a way to add a little color to your life; the shades and possibilities are endless.From OPI to Revlon you can rock some amazing shades.
Hair color trends “WOW” in shades like copper fields,winter peach and toasted grains…Aveda has some amazing new hues.
Men continue to be getting into taking better care of their appearance. From teeth, whitening at home systems, like Supersmile, to getting deep cleansing facials and having their eyebrows groomed. It is a new beauty frontier for men.
For clothing & accessories:
Clothing colors:Mykonos blue, samba, acai, linden green, koi, turbulence gray and of course the color of the year emerald, all predicted by Pantone the color experts are hot this year.
Have the courage to wear anything that is animal print or anything with it in it, like a scarf, shoes, purse or earrings! Think Shad Khan and the Jaguars!
Brighten up your complexion with winter white, shiny materials and sequins.
Out with sky-high heels and into sensible heights that are pretty for our back and feet!
Hose is making a comeback! Warm up to nude hose thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. In addition, black opaque, artsy patterns and textured hose are in for this fall/winter.
Men are seeing a need to be more fashionable too. Not the usual safe dress shirt and khaki pants. Guys are taking a hint from the men of Italy. A fearless way of dressing that includes bare ankles (no socks), slim suits and unique color combinations for shirts, jackets and ties.
So express yourself, take care of yourself, and remember to be yourself…and you will always be in fashion.
