Karma Organic Nail Polish Remover Review and Giveaway

As I've been looking for more natural beauty products to use, I am happy to have discovered an awesome new product to add to my beauty arsenal.
One item that I always hated using was nail polish remover:  The smell and the chemicals just seem so strong and toxic that it can't be good for you.

A few weeks ago, I discovered Karma Organic Organic Nail Polish Remover.
This organic nail polish remover has been featured in Allure, Health, O, Body and Soul, Shape, Family Circle, and Women's Health magazines.

Loreal Elnett Satin Hairspray

I've heard about Loreal Elnett's Satin Hairspray for years, but I'd never used it til a few days ago.
I was lucky to get my first can of the hairspray from Loreal's Hairstylist Johnny Lavoy.  He's awesome.

The Elnett Satin Hairspray is a standard among hairstylists.
It's been around for over 50 years, and it's a cult classic.

Elnett Satin is the legendary hairspray of choice for red carpet events and cover photo shoots. It's micro-diffuser spray offers a clean, soft shiny finish. So fine, it disappears at the stroke of a brush. So strong it's hold lasts all day.

Say Whaaat?!? Lessons in Listening

"I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, 
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant"
-Robert McCloskey

I'm more of a talker than a listener.
After many years of my mother's nagging me ("Practice Piano! Do your homework!  Get off the phone!"),  and teachers talking about things I was not interested in, I became an expert at learning how to tune things out.
However, I do think that I've become a pretty good listener when it comes to listening to what other people have to say~ (I may not be able to keep my own secrets but I'm very good at keeping others!)

It's never good to talk to someone that isn't actually listening to what you're saying or is only interested in telling you their opinions.
If you're not a good listener, here are some tips from Michael P. Nichols, a professor of Psychology at the College of William and Mary and author of the The Lost Art of Listening.

The Power of Pilates

Last summer, I lived in bikinis.
This summer, I've been hiding under the largest shirts and jackets I can find.
After months of struggling with what to wear to hide my muffin top (and not the typical mini muffin... I'm talking the ginormous "Otis Spunkenmeyer" muffin tops!),
I was on a mission to get in shape.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps

I love multi-use products: The more use I can get out of one thing, the more I like it. 
The bigger the bang for the buck~ The better!

One amazing product that has so many different uses is Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Pure-Castille Soap.

Unlike any you’ve ever used. A combination of organic extra virgin coconut, olive, jojoba and hemp oils, together with pure essential oils, creates a unique soap that cleans effectively without being aggressive and produces a velvety-lather that leaves the skin silky-smooth and refreshed.
