Summer Style Necessities!
And Father's Day Gift Guide

Phew! I’m exhausted! I just finished up a major reorganization of my wonderful closet. See, I’m so busy and sometimes (almost always) when I’m busy I don’t put things away like I should. I leave clothes all over the place! On the bed, on the floor, draped over a chair, set near my hamper (dirty or not? I can’t remember?), flung this way and that. Last week I walked into my room and tripped over my Jimmy Choo’s and practically landed in a pile of winter coats! This has gotten a little out of hand!

Naturally, I made a plan of attack. Things had to get into order. First, the winter coats (yeah, that’s right, winter coats) had to go to the dry cleaners and then get picked up from the dry cleaner, then stripped of all the dry cleaner doodads and whatsits, then placed in real garment bags with real hangers, and finally stored till next year! Heavy sweaters must be stored, cardigans sifted through, and summer appropriate cardis pulled out for this season. Hats, scarves, gloves, and other cold weather accoutrements had to be stored appropriately. This is a lot of work. Of course, I was wearing a set of gloves to save my manicure from the inevitable nicks that come from all that heavy lifting!

With the offensive winter gear out of my closet, I finally have space for the things that matter most: SUMMER ESSENTIALS! I like to think that because summertime things are usually less bulky than wintertime things, I get to buy twice as much to fill up all the space I created in my closet.

Summertime essentials:

Great shorts: The story this year is all about the short. Almost any style works this season. Some of my favorites are cuffed, long, and pleated. Try wearing them with a gorgeous blouse, casual bracelets, and strappy sandals! Don’t forget to grab an awesome satchel or cross body bag to complete your look. Shorts can look a bit teeny-bopper sometimes, but to avoid that find shorts in great fabrics and cuts. Also, I don’t care how many squats you do, there is no reason why you should wear shorts that leave your bum hanging out.

Maxi skirt and maxi dress: Bump up your style this season with a maxi skirt. Long and flowing, these pieces look great with fitted, but not overly structured, tops. The idea is easy elegance. Find a skirt in a print you love and rock that skirt all summer long! While the maxi skirt is huge right now, the maxi dress shouldn’t be forgotten. Great options are in stores, but maybe you can use the one you have from last year! Remember you can’t go wrong with a maxi dress and a jean jacket.

Tank tops: As you know, I am currently a huge fan of layering tank tops. They just look so fresh! Keep an eye out for tanks with cool cut outs, racer back style, crochet, embroidery, appliqué, and floral or ethnic prints. Just like with shorts, avoid the too casual look by choosing pieces with great craftsmanship and fabrics. With the right piece, a tank top can even be worn to the office!

T-shirts: Yup, T-shirts get their own category! The T is the quintessential summer item. So easy to throw on, it can be worn almost anywhere that summer takes you. Show the world you know what you’re doing by looking for T’s with various necklines and hem lengths. Don’t forget to style them! T’s must be accessorized! A necklace, a pin, a belt, or even layering will do the trick.

Classic shift dress: A great summer staple. This dress can go from work, to a graduation, to a wedding reception, to a walk in the park, to the farmer’s market, to a romantic dinner for two! Choose a dress that fits you well! The shift can sometimes
be a bit bossy, and it can wear you. A neutral is always a great option, but if you find a color or print you can’t live without, then by all means, make the purchase! Money can’t by happiness, but it can buy clothes, which in turn bring happiness! It might take some searching, but this dress is totally worth the hunt.

Cardigans: The cutest way to stay warm under frigid work air conditioners. I am using some of my lighter winter cardigans this season, but can’t wait to get my hands on something a bit more cropped with shorter sleeves. It makes a great layering piece, adds interest to an outfit, and if you are dying of heat stroke, it fits great in a purse!

Of course you already have a great swimsuit, plenty of strappy sandals, and sunglasses. If you aren’t sure what kind of sunnies to get, try out aviators and wayfarers. They offer effortless cool, and when you put them on, bam! Suddenly you’re a star!

I’m so excited for all the potential this summer has in store for us! Long days, cool drinks, and cute clothes; it’s how summer was meant to be! I’m excited about these summer essentials, and I want to see how you put your summer outfits together! Send me pics of your great summer style!

As always, Shop HAPPY!

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.dermacyteUS.com or www.dermstore.com.

She She Me & Shop Girl's Favorite Things

 

Educate and Protect Yourself this Summer with La Roche-Posay

An article in the New York Times this week revealed the number of melanoma cases has been rising.  According to the American Cancer Society There were about 68,000 new cases of melanoma and about 8,700 deaths last year in the United States, up from 48,000 cases and 7,700 deaths in 2000. Particularly fast increases have occurred among people older than 65 and among women 15 to 39 years old. (Full article: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/06/health/research/06melanoma.html?ref=todayspaper)

The article also discussed the results from two trial studies for the experimental drug vemurafenib and ipilimumab.  Both drugs showed promising results in terms of slowing advanced melanoma.  Although these new drugs show promise, education, early detection and protection are still the best way to increase your chance of survival. 

La Roche-Posay’s Save Our Skin initiative is a national awareness campaign encouraging daily sun safety that began in May of last year.  The focus of this year’s SOS – Save Our Skin campaign will continue to be education and skin checks, the campaign’s two most important tenets.  To find out where to get free skin checks and how to perform at home checks go to http://www.sossaveourskin.com/Protect-Your-Skin/index.aspx

La Roche-Posay is also participating in the Skin Cancer’s Foundation 2nd Annual “Skin Cancer Foundation’s Sun Safety Expo,” which showcases the latest sun protection products and educates consumers about the sun and the risk of cancer.  If you are in the NYC area, stop by Grand Central TODAY to receive La Roche-Posay coupons and Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid samples!

Last but not least, the SOS campaign also contains a viral component, including the new iPhone application, “My UV Check!”  This app provides an index for the day’s UVA and UVB exposure in the user’s location, educate and alert users of the dangers of UVA and UVB exposure and much more.   


 


What's your summer confidence factor?

Summer's on its way and we all know what that means; beaches, bikinis and baring our bods. Yikes! It can be a scary thought. Thankfully, Mama Mio offers a hand in achieving bikini confidence with the below tips and products that tackle cellulite and lift, firm and tone:

#1: Apply Mama Mio Shrink To Fit ($56): This cellulite blasting solution is packed with the most effective cellulite busters, circulation stimulators and anti-oxidants, all included at very, very high levels to ensure we have made the best anti-cellulite cream we possibly could. A true multi-tasker, Shrink To Fit delivers smooth, ‘orange peel-free’ legs – leaving you ready for a stroll down the beach sans sarong.

#2: Vigorous massage, focusing on those stubborn dimply areas will improve circulation while reducing the appearance of cellulite.

#3: Light, upward massage strokes stimulate lymphatic drainage by helping the blood flow towards the heart and help eliminate the build up of body toxins.

#4: Dry brushing exfoliates and helps encourages the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, keeping it firm, fresh, youthful and orange-peel free!

#5: Exercise de-bloats and stimulates endorphins to help put a smile on your face and spring in your step.

Before you reach for that cover-up, you might also want to check out:

  • Boob Tube ($45): This crinkle-fighting formula promotes firmer, fitter, glowing, dewy, youthful skin from the neck down, a must when preparing for a revealing bathing suit. CoQ10 helps defy gravity while Omega 3, 6 and 9 keep your neck and décolleté looking firm and plump. Milk Thistle, Evening Primrose Oil and Sweet Almond Oil maintain moisture for healthy, brilliant skin.
  • Get Waisted ($56): Formulated with clinically tested waist-whittling actives, Get Waisted is rich in amino acids and algae extracts proven to stimulate the body’s production of beta-endorphins, increasing lypolysis (the breakdown of fat) to help flush out fat, eliminate puffiness and give a more defined, tighter appearance. A must have for that teeny-weeny bikini!

At the very heart of the Mama Mio brand is one massive mission: to help women feel more confident in their skin.  Check out their Summer Confidence Challenge here www.mamamio.com/us/confidence  and be part of the movement to raise confidence nation wide!
