Jord's Cutting Edge Wooden Watches

` `

I've probably have never worn a watch in my life.  Don't get me wrong, I appreciate seeing a smart watch on someone else.  For me, however,  it's just one more thing for me to add to my list to ready myself for the day.  Earrings are my sole jewelry, and that's mainly because half the time I don't even bother to brush my hair, I just put it up in a pony tail. Yet, I realize the import of presenting a pulled together appearance to the world.  This is why I'm always reluctant to meet new people or I'm  ducking and hiding when I think I see someone I may know.

 Sometimes just adding a few essentials is all that is needed to shine. Watches are one of those pieces that accomplish that nicely.

Jord; the eco-friendly watch never looked so good

 Jord carries an exceptional selection of eco-friendly watches that actually look like a million bucks.  I say "actually" because many of us don't think of green apparel or accessories as being terribly smart looking.  Although, as the demand for eco-friendly wearables grows greater, more companies are using ingenuity to successfully develop quality merchandise.  This is the case with Jord. their watches deliver in quality and craftsmanship.

Jord managed to successfully develop quality, eco-friendly watches that are on the cutting edge of fashion    

Simply by adding a smart looking watch to your person, will prove to be an effective way to garner a positive impression on others.  Jord offers a stunning selection of watches that can nicely accomplish this task.

The Trek To Finding The Perfect Lip Gloss

Lip gloss is a beauty item that I can NOT live without.  It's also one of my most discarded items because finding a good one ain't easy.

My number one concern: what's in it.  Many lipsticks, glosses and balms contain animal-derived ingredients that may not be so obvious to many.

Other main concerns:  quality of the gloss, is it sticky, long-wearing, flattering, etc. all of which require a test drive.

Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss meets all my criteria nicely.  Since discovering the Lucrative Lip Gloss a week ago I've been wearing it daily and I must say my lips have never looked so good.

The Lucrative Lip Gloss contains plant-derived ingredients and is gluten free!

Lucrative Lip Gloss by Younique   

The lip glosses are highly pigmented, but don't be afraid to go dark.  I'm wearing the darker red gloss and the color is sheer enough so that it's not overpowering.  It's actually very flattering.  The gloss itself isn't sticky  and wears well all day.  Even after eating, I noticed my lips retained a lot of the pigment, which is out of the ordinary as far as glosses are concerned.  

I also wanted to point out the application tip. Probably due to the slant, I'm able to apply the product with a lighter hand.  This not only works to get a more flattering look, but saves me from wasting extra, unused product.   As you can see from the above photo, each gloss contains a mirror.  I personally love this feature because my lip gloss is transit!  For me this is such a practical feature.

The glosses retail for only $15 a pop, I don't know of anyone that would disagree that that's an amazing value.   You can also find a value pack of three for $40,  a five dollar savings.

The Best Face Firming Ingredients In Skincare

As a beauty blogger I've often received emails concerning the best products for firming skin.   I always advocate wearing SPF, since over exposure to the sun breaks down collagen as well as other premature aging catalysts.  Staying moisturized, both internally and externally, is another must for keeping skin hydrated and dewy and preventing winkling.  When it comes to skincare, I found there are ingredients that provide both instant and long term benefits.

 DMAE,  Dimethylaminoethanol, has shown very promising research.  One study found DMAE to  increase dermal thickness and collagen fiber thickness when applied topically and another study found diminished wrinkles, sagging neck skin, under eye dark circles.  The over-all study concluded that DMAE increases skin firmness and improves muscle tone.

  What to look for in a good DMAE skincare product?

 The studies that were conducted used a product 3 to 5%  DMAE

DMAE Fluid by Reviva Labs contains 5% DMAE

Reviva Labs DMAE fluid contains high-potency 5% DMAE.    A simple, inexpensive product that makes all the difference. The benefits are immediate as well as long term.  Skin is immediately tightened, dark circles and bags noticeably diminished.  The fluid absorbs quickly into the skin and is easy to incorporate into any skincare routine. What about elastin in skincare? Like collagen your skin contains elastin.  The difference is in the protein as well as the actual function, collagen necessary for skin firmness and elastin for skin's bounce or elasticity.  After the ripe old age of 25 you're skin starts to lose elastin.  While many debate the efficacy of elastin in skincare, Reviva Labs carries a very promising product.

High Potency Elastin Serum by Reviva Labs contains a high concentration of elastin 

Like the DMAE Firming Fluid, the High Potency Elastin Serum provides instant and long term skin benefits. Goes to work immediately to tighten skin.  Really packs a punch when combined with the DMAE serum.  Especially in the throat area. Two serious products that really do work to firm the skin.

Propet Rejuve; Orthopedic Shoes Never Looked So Good

American Podiatric Medical Association has noted that three out of four people will develop debilitating foot pain at some point in their life.  So the question is: what can we do to prevent foot problems or how can we alleviate existing foot pain.

Rejuve footwear encourages a proper gait

Rejuve footwear by Propet is expertly engineered to provide proper support that encourages correct foot and leg alignment.  Fantastic for those that already suffer with foot pain, bunions, or other foot-related problems.  Also a great option for those folks that, like myself,  prefer to be comfortable while preventing future foot issues.

See full review here

Who said you have to sacrifice beauty for comfort?

Some of the styles above caught my eye.  As you can see the styles run the gamut of casual to dressy. Another plus: Propet shoes will not break your budget.  Their prices are beyond competitive to say the least.  My mom has paid quite a bit more for shoes that didn't deliver the same level of comfort, support and relief.  Want to learn more?
