Here Comes the Sun! (maybe) Sassy Summer Styles

So what do you think? Spring never really got sprung, and I'm seriously beginning to wonder if summer is just a myth. I mean the actual official start of summer is a mere two weeks away and I am still wearing tights and turtlenecks with my sundresses! There is hope, however. That adorably chipper brunette on The Weather Channel has promised temperatures in the 80's…eventually.

So on the off chance that warmer weather might be in our near future, I think that calls for a celebration! And what better way to celebrate than with a little retail therapy. After all, we are going to need some sassy new ensembles once the warm weather kicks in, no? So I am off on a quest for the best of summer. And I am not coming home until I find the perfect designer jeans guaranteed to work wonders on my somewhat imperfect rear view.

Summer Indulgences/Necessities:

  • Gorgeous sleeveless lacy top. Perfect for those sultry summer nights. Looks lovely with a pair of great summer shorts. Top with a linen blazer for cool evenings.
  • A bright summer smile! Nothing will add more to your sizzling summer looks than a dazzling white smile. So simple, so fast, and so affordable! With all the summer weddings, reunions, parties and activities, this is the perfect gift to give yourself—you'll never regret it!
  • Luscious kissable lips. Soothe your lips and add a soft color tarte 24.7 Natural Lip Sheer SPF15. This fabulous gloss in a tube is perfect for tossing into a beach bag. Mango and cocoa butters moisturize and soften lips for a Gilt Children Logo 88x31natural look, but even better. Comes in 12 delectable tints for that perfect summer smile.
  • Sassy garden party dress. Dress is up, dress it down, put it on and paint the town! (Hmm, sounds rather like a couture cheerleader.) Better pick up a pair of sexy sandals to complete the look. Strappy platforms will have you headed for the dance floor, while demure grecian flats will work for lunch with the girls.
  • Cuffed capri's. Perfect for an afternoon sail or a picnic at the beach.
  • First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller. Perfect for those early-mornings-after-a-late-night. Reduces Bodenpuffiness. smoothes and brightens eye area and helps reduce under eye circles.
  • Must-have summer maxi dress. In fact, you had probably better get more than one — these are all the rage this season! Add a chunky necklace or a pair of fun earrings, a great pair of summer sandals and finish with a sassy little summer tote.
  • Calvin Klein CK One Summer: My new fave! Fresh, clean and easy to wear. This fragrance is what summer is all about.

Summer Movies:

Beach Reads:

  • First of all, you're going to want to get the new Kindle 3G with Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology. The perfect way to make sure you always have something to read at the beach! And it has a no glare screen so you can read in bright sunlight. I have named my Kindle "AMEX" because I never leave home without it.
  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, by Helen Simonson. An easy, fun read about the retired Major Pettigrew, an honor-bound Englishman and widower, and the very embodiment of duty and pride, who finds his life turned upside down by family, neighbors and circumstances beyond his control.
  • The Beach Trees, by Karen White. From the time she was twelve, Julie Holt knew what a random tragedy can do to a family. At that tender age, her little sister disappeared-never to be found. It was a loss that slowly eroded the family bonds she once relied on. As an adult with a prestigious job in the arts, Julie meets a struggling artist who reminds her so much of her sister, she can't help feeling protective. It is a friendship that begins a long and painful process of healing for Julie, leading her to a house on the Gulf Coast, ravaged by hurricane Katrina, and to stories of family that take her deep into the past.
  • The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, by David McCullough. An ambitious, wide-ranging study of how being in Paris helped spark generations of American genius. A gorgeously rich, sparkling patchwork, eliciting stories from diaries and memoirs to create the human drama McCullough depicts so well.

Just For Fun:

  • Floppy summer hat. This should actually be up there in the necessities list because it is very important to protect your gorgeous skin from the summer sun! I especially love the fun hats from Wallaroo because they have built-in SPF50 sun protection — bonus!
  • You know you want a new handbag. I know I do! This summer's hot trend is the bucket bag, perfect for toting all your girly summer goodies around!

This should keep you busy, happy and very productive. Smile pretty and try not to break too many hearts!

Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate

15 Years of Science Behind Dermacyte Products

Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate was created by a team of scientists who have been working for 15 years on the development of oxygen-based treatments for life-threatening medical conditions. Helped by the miracle of modern technology and after extensive research, they discovered a  unique and highly effective carrier that allows the transfer of large amounts of dissolved natural oxygen without the use of chemical activators like hydrogen peroxide, which is known to dry and bleach skin.

Given that oxygen is vital for the healthy appearance of skin and is known to have a beneficial effect on wound healing, this novel technology inspired the creation of Dermacyte skin care products. Within a short time, users saw the appearance of fine lines started to fade; their complexions were softer and smoother. Dull-looking skin seemed to regain moistness and a healthy glow. Skin had finally found a way to reclaim its youth.

Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate

Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate is a unique and ultra-soothing formula that helps restore a youthful glow to your skin. Your complexion appears instantly brighter and energized after it is applied.  Apply morning and night onto clean skin before any other products. Think of Dermacyte Oxygen Concentrate as an oxygen bar for your skin! Price: $84, 10 ml

 About the Company: Oxygen Biotherapeutics, Inc.

Oxygen Biotherapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ & SIX: OXBT) of Durham, NC, is developing cosmetic and medical products that efficiently deliver oxygen to tissues in the body. The company has developed a proprietary therapeutic oxygen carrier and liquid ventilation product that is being formulated for both intravenous and topical delivery. The Company introduced its first cosmetic product, Dermacyte® Oxygen Concentrate in 2010. In addition, the company is focused on PFC-based oxygen carriers for use in traumatic brain injury, decompression sickness, personal care, and topical wound healing. More information is available at www.dermacyeUS.com or www.dermstore.com.

She She Me's Favorite Things


Get Dirty With Lush

For people who care about their appearance but can't be bothered with too much paraphernalia in the mornings, the NEW "Dirty" collection is a no-nonsense fragrance that hits you with intensely crisp spearmint, thyme and tarragon, and the subtle smell of calm seas.

Dirty takes the common idea of 'layering' with beauty products a little bit further. Normally, grooming products will all have a different scent. However, this new concept of layering means you can shower in invigorating spearmint and thyme, shave with soothing lavender and sandalwood, and style hair with tarragon and oak moss.  Once all of these products with heir individual fragrances have been used, the combined scent will be that of Dirty, and can be topped off with the body spray, which contains all those main notes.

Dirty Spring Wash Shower Gel ($9.95 for 3.3oz, $17.95 for 8.4oz, $26.95 for 16.9oz) Don't be a dirty rotten scoundrel.  Recreate your very own mountain spring and wash with this tingly, softening, minty shower gel that contains spearmint, thyme, and sea salt.

Dirty Shaving Cream ($12.95) Shave it all off using our ultra-softening oats and benzoin shaving cream.  There's also lavender and sandalwood in there to soothe any irritations.
Dirty Hair Gel ($12.95) Refresh your coif with our conditioning and softening, firm hold styling product.  Made with fair trade coconut oil, linseed gel and balm herb infusion for the perfect just-got-out-of bed style.
Dirty Body Spray ($19.95) If you don't have the time for a full-on Dirty routine in the morning, take a quickie instead and spritz yourself liberally with this body spray before you head out the door.  No one will ever know.

STEAMCREAM

Do you have summer travel plans? Well, don't leave home without a must pack product - a good moisturizer to smooth and soften bare skin and soothe it after exposure to the sun.

You are going to love STEAMCREAM, a serious skin cream developed for use on the face, but equally effective and popular for use on the body and hands, created through a revolutionary "Steam Infusion" manufacturing process in which high quality, vegan ingredients emulsify and break down immediately on contact with the skin for maximum absorption and benefits. STEAMCREAM noticeably nourishes and softens the skin, and with regular use, improves its overall appearance.


Better yet, STEAMCREAM is travel-friendly at just 2.6oz; not only approved for carry-on luggage, but light-weight for beach bags, day packs and purses. Easily accessible and multi-purpose, STEAMCREAM combats dry, scaly,
sun-parched skin.


L'Occitane 

If you're looking for a fresh new summer scent, look no further than the NEW L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Fragrance Collection. Known as the flower with a thousand petals, the peony grows abundantly in the Mediterranean, showcasing its vibrant colors and alluring fragrance as it dances like a ballerina in the summer breeze. The L'Occitane Pivoine Flora products are enriched with a peony extract, sourced exclusively from peonies grown in the famous Rivière nursery in France, which is known for its expertise in peony cultivation.
Pivoine Flora Eau de Parfum ($60) This new Eau de Parfum has an intense, green floral structure. With a rich, multi-faceted combination of delicate peony and sensuous magnolia, this dramatic floral elixir creates a fragrant bouquet with a musky, woody finish.
Pivoine Flora Hand Cream ($10) This smooth, creamy texture, fortified with shea butter, is formulated to nourish and protect the hands and nails. Escape to a fragrant peony garden with this portable hand cream.
 

Pivoine Flora Beauty Cream
($36) This fresh cream's velvety texture, enriched with peony extract, wraps the> body in satin-smooth comfort with a delicate floral scent.

The Pivoine Flora Fragrance collection also includes: Eau de Toilette ($40); Eau de Toilette Intense Roll-on ($16); Shower Gel ($20); Petal Soap ($8); Beauty Milk ($24)

Inspired by the graceful peony which dances like a ballerina in the Mediterranean breeze, L’Occitane unveils its stunning color collection of luminous springtime hues and velvety textures enriched with softening peony extract. The easy-to-use products glide onto the skin, leaving it silky and nourished, and can be blended together in a variety of ways for buildable make-up looks.

Products include:


Summer Heat Means Summer Updos

The summer heat can be unbearable, especially when the weather gets your hair into a knotty, sweaty mess! Keep loose strands out of your face and your neck cool with simple, chic and weather-appropriate ‘dos using Goody!

For Jessica Biel’s low-maintenance yet polished look, create a side part and gather hair into a large, low bun. Twist in the Goody Simple Styles Bun Spiral, which creates a perfect bun for longer, thicker hair. Pull out a few strands for that effortless touch.

Diane Kruger perfected the summer evening look by creating romantic waves, and accenting her hair with glitzy pins. Wrap sections of hair around a curling iron, braid hair, and secure into a low bun.Add pins from the Goody Modern Organica Collection for a hint of glamour.

Brazilian Peel by Advanced Home Actives

Brazilian Peel was recently nominated for Allure Magazines Reader's Choice best skincare breakthrough! You may not already know about Brazilian Peel, but this beauty-insider secret is quickly becoming the go-to at-home product for professional skincare results.

The one-step Brazilian Peel combines 30% glycolic acid with ethically sourced Acai to visibly brighten, smooth, firm and tone skin. An affordable alternative to pricey professional peels, Brazilian Peel removes dead skin cells, stimulating cell regeneration to minimize fine lines, sun spots and dryness caused by UV rays. With just one use, Brazilian Peel reveals a firmer, smoother, brighter complexion—the perfect boost for your summer glow!  And as you can see on the Sephora ratings + reviews, this is one of the few glycolic peels that is surprisingly gentle on the skin!

I received a trial pack of the one-step Brazilian Peel and am sooooo happy that I was the lucky girl to score one! My complexion feels so smooth and clear. In fact, after my second treatment Girly asked me if I was in love (apparently I have a lovely glow as well!) And for $78 for four treatments it is so perfectly affordable!


Jemma Kidd's Makeup Tips

With a spring that barely sprung, we are anxiously awaiting that hopefully endless summer. Jemma Kidd, international make-up artist, author and creator of three award-winning make-up lines offers tips to add some glow, when it feels as though skin will stay pale forever.

Use radiance cream under foundation. This is more subtle than when you dab it on top as a highlighter.

  • Try: Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Crème. This light-diffusing crème can be used all-over for a lustrous
    finish, for use under or over foundation or on bare skin. Added moisturizing jojoba and sun filters to help protect the skin    $30.00

Don’t try to cover very pale skin with a darker foundation—match to your natural skin tone and add color with blush. Peach tones give a sunkissed radiance to the skin.

  • Try: Light As Air SPF 18 Foundation.  Ultra blendable and lightweight texture.  Unique formula leaves a velvety finish. Skin balancing benefits help mattify for a shine free complexion. Long-wear technology creates all day staying power. SPF 18 protects skin from harmful rays.  Available in seven shades.  $38.00

Use a tint or cream blush in a natural fresh pink, so that your cheeks look as though you’ve pinched them—use very little product to start with and build up the color gradually.

  • Try: Rosy Glow Lip & Cheek Tint. Ultra-natural sheer tint provides a fresh-faced flush of colour.  $28.00
  • or Blushwear Crème Cheek Colour in Guava. Unique, lightweight crème to powder texture works effortlessly over foundation or freshly moisturized skin to enhance the complexion and contours of the face. Long-wearing crème cheek colour contains powerful anti-oxidant vitamins A, C and E to help condition and protect the skin against free
    radical damage.   $23.00

The Case for Falling in Love

If you are looking for an enticing read that will help dispel all those crazy falling-in-and-out-of love myths, then The Case For Falling In Love, by Mari Ruti is the book for you.

I received a complimentary copy of the book, which somehow got stranded in the mailroom for an insanely long time (Joey the mailroom guy is about to get engaged and I think he was looking for some validation) so I took it home thinking I would get a start on it over the weekend. Well, I not only got a start on it but I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning because I just couldn't put it down!

The author begins each chapter with a Myth and a Fact, such as the myth that men prefer women who let them take the lead. The fact is that most men are looking for an equal relationship with a competent and independent woman.

Mari uses references from today's pop culture as well as from her own life in her arguments against the notion that women should follow certain "rules of conduct" in order to land a mate. (Honestly, how long can a girl keep up the farce!) An honest relationship cannot be built on a deceptive foundation.

This book is an honest and insightful look at men and women, love and romance, relationships and how better understand them. I highly recommend it!
