Beauty Buy: Bliss Micro Magic Microdermabrasion Treatment

Being a busy mom of two, I rarely get the opportunity to indulge in the luxury of spa pampering.

Thanks to Bliss Micro Magic, it’s now easy for me to recreate a spa-like facial experience in the comfort of my own bathroom. A cross between a mask and a cleanser, this at-home microdermabrasion treatment has been a godsend for my skin.

The fine micro-beads exfoliate by gently sloughing away dead skin cells leaving behind a super soft and clear complexion. Plus, it manages to make my pores appear smaller.

I’ve been a fan of Bliss Spa and just about every product from the brand for years, but I was especially drawn to Micro Magic because it’s formulated with volcanic pumice. There’s just something intriguing about a product containing anything from a volcano! Not only does the volcanic pumice make the treatment an interesting beauty buy, the aloe, peppermint, and Vitamin E ingredients seal the deal.

Although the directions suggest using the product twice a week for the best results, I’m already impressed with my skin’s appearance after a single use. I’m going to use it again tonight, but can’t imagine my face looking any more radiant.

If you’re in need of a good facial, but short on time or money give Micro Magic a try!

Denim Overalls for Spring: Over or In?


I never thought the day would come when overalls would be considered stylish again. From Rihanna to Ashley Madekwe, over the past year or so, celebrities and street-style fashionistas have been sporting them out and about. Luckily, this time around they're cropping up in slimmer, more flattering designs and fits. Back in the 90s, I like many other teens confidently rocked the farmer chic fashion staple. I remember begging my mom for a pricey pair of oversize Calvin Klein aka "CK" overalls from Marshall Field's (my Chicago readers will remember that store) much to her dismay, but she bought them anyway. They were at least three sizes too big, but back then the bigger and baggier the better! Clearly, I wanted to look like TLC's long lost fourth member. But in fashion, even the most … Keep Reading

Review: Evenflo Classic Glass Feeding Bottle Featuring Proflow


I must admit, I hardly use bottles to feed my 6 1/2 month-old-son. Yep, I'm one of those moms who breastfeeds on demand all day, everyday. It's easy for me and my son loves the comfort and nourishment that it provides. However, when my outfit or a particular public location or outing isn't conducive to breastfeeding, Evenflo's new bottle line with Proflow vented nipples has been my substitute. Evenflo Classic + Vented Bottles with Proflow Vented Nipples (trio of 8 oz) available exclusively at Babies R Us, $9.99 I prefer the classic glass option because it cuts down on germs and mold that can creep in with plastic ones. Plus, with the Proflow innovation, the vented nipples direct those dreaded air bubbles straight into the bottle instead of my son's stomach, reducing gassy … Keep Reading
