Lyra Ariel Hoop for Fitness & Pole Pics

Hey guys!! I’m back to blogging and up to more crazy:)  I found out that a fitness studio in Lexington gives Lyra Ariel Hoop private fitness classes and, true to my nature, if there is a chance I might hurt myself I have to give it a try, so I did.

Dior Ad Banned In The UK! Those Eyelashes Are Too Long to Girl!!

I’m not going to lie, I laughed a little when I read about the Diorshow New Look mascara ad being banned in the
UK because Natalie Portman’s eyelashes were too long. Who would have thought it?

The UK Advertising Standard’s Authority ruled on October 24th that the Dior ad “must not appear again in its current form”. They found that there were post production techniques used that might mislead consumers about the efficacy of the mascara. Portman’s lashes were enhanced using Photoshop CS5.1. You might wonder why the ASA investigated this particular ad, well I have the answer. The investigation arose out of a complaint filed by L’oreal.

Sephora Friends And Family Sale Wish List

So its here again, Sephora’s Friends and Family Sale.  Now here is the thing, I’m not sure if VIB’s will be included or if we will get our own 20% sale in November.  I’ve heard conflicting reports about whether or not VIB’s will be able to join in this event.  I haven’t received my coupon code yet, but I will let you know as soon as I know what the heck is going on.  At any rate, if we can’t participate in this event, we will get a VIB date soon and we will be able to get our 20% off then. The Sephora Friends and Family Sale will start October 18, 2012 through the 31st. There are rumors that if VIB’s are allowed to participate they will be able to purchase a day earlier on October 17th.

Lets Talk About Our Men’s Beauty Routine!

If we were to talk only about my man, Mr. IDidMyFace, we would be having a short conversation. He is pretty easy going. He likes his $1.50 shaving bar that he uses a brush in a cup to foam up a cream that he tells me has just as good a lather than “that expensive crap you buy”. His words, not mine. LOL. Whatever shampoo happens to be in the shower at any given time is fine and dandy with him, as long as it doesn’t smell “too girly”. Body wash or soap? He doesn’t care. Heck, he will use shampoo as body wash. The only thing he is really picky about is deodorant. He is a Degree fan and he is not using anything else, no ifs ands or buts about it. I know this from personal experience. Any lotion is good too as long as he doesn’t smell like a cake or flower.

Skin Cancer Identification and Prevention

Skin cancer is one of the most curable cancers, if you can catch it in time. If you don’t, it can be one of the most deadly. That is why it is so important to see your dermatologist regularly to have your moles examined. Prevention is key, sunscreen is a must, even in small children. Below is a link to a slide show on WebMd.com showing abnormal moles and also a link to cancer.gov detailing the signs and symptoms of skin cancer, along with prevention. If you have any questionable spots, go to the doctor as soon as possible. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! It could save your life!!  You are not immune to this disease and you matter, so take care of yourself:)

FDA Issues Warning on Skin Creams Containing Mercury!!

Hi everyone! Thanks for taking the time to visit. I wanted to let my readers know that the FDA has issued a warning that some skin creams containing mercury  have been illegally introduced to the American market. If you have purchased one of these products stop using immediately.  Seek medical attention if you have any of the following symptoms of mercury poisoning:

  • irritability
  • shyness
  • tremors
  • changes in vision or hearing
  • memory problems
  • depression
  • numbness and tingling in hands, feet or around mouth

“Exposure to mercury can have serious health consequences,” says Charles Lee, M.D., a senior medical advisor at FDA. “It can damage the kidneys and the nervous system, and interfere with the development of the brain in unborn children and very young children.”

You don’t have to use the product yourself to be affected, says FDA toxicologist Mike Bolger, Ph.D. “People—particularly children—can get mercury in their bodies from breathing in mercury vapors if a member of the household uses a skin cream containing mercury.” Infants and small children can ingest mercury if they touch their parents who have used these products, get cream on their hands and then put their hands and fingers into their mouth, which they are prone to do, adds Bolger.

How to Protect Yourself (From FDA Site)

  • Check the label of any skin lightening, anti-aging or other skin product you use. If you see the words “mercurous chloride,” “calomel,” “mercuric,” “mercurio,” or “mercury,” stop using the product immediately.
  • If there is no label or no ingredients are listed, do not use the product. Federal law requires that ingredients be listed on the label of any cosmetic or drug.
  • Don’t use products labeled in languages other than English unless English labeling is also provided.
  • If you suspect you have been using a product with mercury, stop using it immediately. Thoroughly wash your hands and any other parts of your body that have come in contact with the product. Contact your health care professional or a medical care clinic for advice.
  • If you have questions, call your health care professional or the Poison Center8 disclaimer icon 9 at 1-800-222-1222; it is open 24 hours a day.
  • Before throwing out a product that may contain mercury, seal it in a plastic bag or leak-proof container. Check with your local environmental, health or solid waste agency for disposal instructions. Some communities have special collections or other options for disposing of household hazardous waste.
