Show Me; Don't Tell Me

Showing love to a husband, fiancĂ© or boyfriend speaks louder than the words “I love you”. While some people like to hear the words, it means a greater deal when a person shows it. However, certain occasions or certain reasons may cause a partner to want to show love with a greater gesture. For instance, Father’s Day or a birthday are good days to show a man what he means to the family and how much the family appreciates him. 

A surprise trip to a desired location is an excellent way to show a man what he means to the family. Slowly decide the details ahead of time. For instance, begin looking into flights and tuck away money here and there. Slowly putting money to the side provides a way of having the necessary funds for the trip without tipping off a partner about the trip. Credit cards can provide another option to funding provided that they can be paid off within the month. 

Pampering is also a good way to show love to a boyfriend, fiance or husband. Get some massage oil from a boutique de massage or invest in massage tables Toronto to provide a head to toe massage. Take a massage class or research tips on the Internet. A partner will appreciate the special effort given to make them happy. 

There are many ways to show love to a partner. It needn’t be anything extravagant. It could be as simple as bringing them coffee while they’re still lying in bed. Love is all about action. Do something today.

NIOXIN DiamaxAdvanced Review - Get thicker fuller hair

How do you make thin or thinning hair look and feel thicker?  Finding the answer to that question is something that so many of us are constantly searching for. Thinning hair can come with age, can be caused by taking certain medications, may be triggered by stressor or as in my case, you may simply have been born with fine hair.  And like most people with thin hair, I have tried countless products that have promised thicker hair, only to find that they did not hold up to their promise. So when I come across a hair thickening product that works, I need to share that good news with my readers. The only hair care line that I really like to help inflate my flat locks is NIOXIN. I have always had very good results with the NIOXIN hair care line and their new DiamaxAdvanced is just the icing on the cake! I received a complimentary sample from NIOXIN for my review.

NIOXIN DiamaxAdvancedTM, with 25% more active ingredients:
  • 1. Instantly Thickens existing hair so it’s as if you have up to 11,000 more hair strands.*
  • 2. Provides long-lasting fullness for up to 8 hours against humidity.**
  • 3. Protects against breakage allowing hair to grow longer.
DiamaxAdvancedTMis a leave-on treatment that can be used with the Nioxin 3-part systems for thicker, denser-looking hair.

One of the features that I really like about the NIOXIN DiamaxAdvanced is that it can be used on both wet or dry hair.  Perfect for those days and times that my hair needs a little more UMPH, like towards the end of my day, this product helps my fine hair look and feel fuller. The specially designed nozzle allows you to apply the product directly to the roots for a more precise application.  I however, like to dispense the product on to my fingers and then apply it to my scalp and roots of my hair (either on dry or damp hair).  The NIOXIN DiamaxAdvanced helps my hair look and feel thicker, fuller and more "lifted" without leaving it stiff or sticky. I absolutely love this stuff. It's the perfect addition to my NIOXIN hair care product line-up for thicker, fuller hair.  So, I your hair is leaving your feeling flat then you must check out all that NIOXIN has to offer like their new DiamxAdvanced, you won't be disappointed. And don't forget to let me know what you think!  Till then!  B.

Resurfacing Devices

Using resurfacing devices is a simple thing for everyone who owns a skating rink or other icy surface. These surfaces need to be smoothed over many times to help maintain their integrity, and the owner of the surface must make sure that they are doing a great deal of work to keep the surface flat. 

Purchasing these devices is simple for the owner, but the owner must learn more to figure which type of device to use. There are devices that cover small areas, and these can be used to touch us the surface. There are larger devices that can be used to make sure that the entire surface is clean, but the owner must make the choice.

There are many homeowners who keep the icy surface of the lake behind their house smooth with these devices, and there are large sports arenas that need to use these devices to service the ice in their arena. The device can be powered independently, and the device can be rolled to any point on the ice. There are many ways for people to use these devices, but they must first choose the device that is going to work well with their surface.

Sebastian Texture Maker Review

For all my girls that are obsessed with textured-tresses, have I got something special for you! Sebastian has given me a complimentary sample ( for review) of their secret weapon for creating amazing texture and volume. It's their Texture Maker Texturizing Hairspray. Finally, for once and for all there is a texturizing hairspray that delivers real touchable texture, hold and definition while leaving hair soft and sexy. Yes, even "limp locks ladies" like me can now have full and sexy hair that looks and feels amazing from the beginning of my day right through to the end of my day. Thank you Sebastian!!!
The Sebastian Texture Maker is a "non-aerosol texturizing hairspray that provide versatile reworkable texture with a matte finish and medium hold to create virtually any textured look. To use, simply spray the Texture Maker on dry hair and mold with hands for extreme reworkable texture.  For tousled texture" (my personal favorite!) "and additional hold, spray damp hair and blow dry.  To finish the textured style, mist on dry hair." I first applied the Texture Maker to my damp hair after washing it and then finished with blow drying . The Texture Maker totally transformed my hair by making it look and feel fuller and sexier. I also applied a few pumps to my dry hair when I was finished styling my hair for added texture and hold.

I absolutely LOVE the professional quality of the Sebastian Texture Maker Hairspray. No longer do I have to suffer with deflated and dull hair. Now I can have beautiful hair with gorgeous texture just like the celebs.  The Sebastian Texture Maker has definitely claimed the #1 spot in my hair product line-up! So, please, please, please if you want professional results for hair that looks and feels amazing, check out this product out as well as all that Sebastian offers. And let me know what you think. Till then!  B.

Beauty Box 5 - September Beauty Box 5 Review

Don't miss a step when it comes to staying on top of the latest beauty trends that are hot for fall. Once again my Beauty Box 5 has hooked me up with some of the hottest items in beauty to help look my best. Check out what goodies this month's box contained.

The first fall fave from Beauty Box 5 is the My Beauty Spot Nail Polish. There is no single easier way to transition from summer to fall than with a stunning new nail polish color.  And the My Beauty Spot Nail Polish in grey is the perfect way to help you make that transition. I love my grey nail polish for fall.  It's not as deep as black, but has enough depth in color to use for my everyday fall mani.  The My Beauty Spot Nail Polish goes on super easy, smooth and even. It dries in a snap and I absolutely adore the metallic shimmer of this color. If you want eye-catching then this is your polish!  And since we are talking manis, why not share some polish love with your toes?  If achieving "the perfect pedi" is something that you have yet to master then you are going to love the Sally Hansen Toe Spacers, #sallyhansen.  These super cushiony toes spacers help keep the polish on your nails rather than your skin.  Giving you that "just from the salon" look and feel.  Plus they come in super adorable patterns and colors.

And for the days that you want to make a statement without saying a word, you are going to LOVE the Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon, #nickaknewyork. This creamy shadow stick delivers serious color for your most beautiful eyes yet! It glides on ultra-smooth, is so easy to blend and gives your eyes the perfect pop of shimmery color. Love the smokey eye look?  Simply use your finger or brush to smudge the shadow for all-out smokey sexieness! And to help make your eye area brighter, smoother and firmer, Chrislie Formulations offers you their fantastic 3-in-1 Eye Bright Serum, #lashem. Perfect for combating reduce dark circles and rejuvenate tired looking skin, this serum over time helps give skin a more youthful appearance.

And since we don't want to leave our locks not feeling the love, Natural Style by FUBU, #naturalstyleby fubu, has just what needy, thirsty stands are craving, hydration!  The FUBU Natural Style Deep Conditioner and Co-Wash contains 8 repairing oils and shea butter to help eliminate frizz and strengthen weak hair. It can be used as a deep conditioning treatment for all hair types or as a co-wash for curly-haired girls.

So if Beauty Box 5 sounds interesting to you then please check them out at BeautyBox5.com and let me know what you think.  Till then!  B.
