Surpahs Over the Sink Multipurpose Roll-up Dish Drying Rack A Kitchen Must-Have!


I really like this product for a few reasons! I like the warm grey color and that it is quite versatile. It can be used for drying dishes and I love that I can also place hot cookie sheets on it when I am baking cookies. But, my favorite thing is that it is just perfect for my “not big enough” kitchen. In my dream world I have a big spacious kitchen with lots of space. In my real world, this isn’t the case. So, this is perfect because it doesn’t take up space and can be easily rolled up and stored when not using. It doesn’t take up much space at all! It’s a real Must-Have for the kitchen!

Shiseido Get The Look KYE show

unnamed (1)

“I wanted the look to pick up on the graphic elements of the collection.” – Dick Page, Shiseido Artistic Director.

·         Created By: Shiseido Artistic Director Dick Page

·         Inspiration: This collection was a bit sporty and collegiate looking, so Dick created a look that was young and a little rock-and-roll. The blacks and reds in the collection inspired the black eyeliner and red lip in this look.

·         Products:

o    Eye: Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black (BK901) was applied in a solid line which was then smudged and diffused with Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Caviar (BK912). Then, Automatic Eyeliner in Black (BK901) was layered on top to finish the eyes.

o    Lip: Lacquer Rouge in Drama (RD501) and Lacquer Rouge in Sanguine (RD314) were mixed together and loaded heavily onto the lips, then immediately blotted with a flat tissue to break down the color. This application process kept the red lip from looking too glamorous and to ensure the models still looked young. Lastly, a bit of Lacquer Rouge in Drama (RD501) was dabbed onto the bottom lip to complete the look.

o    Face: Concealer and foundation were applied very minimally as needed, using the NEW Perfecting Stick Concealer and Sheer and Perfect Foundation SPF 18.

I received samples of the Lacquer Rouge in Drama (RD501) and love the shade and it is a Beauty Must-Buy! My favorite is the Perfecting Stick Concealer. It goes on smoothly and isn’t too heavy. It’s actually my to-go-to concealer for everyday use. The Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black is also a hit with me! I love how smoothly it applies and how long it lasts!

Moms & Acne: ZAPZYT Skin Care


Damaged skin, scarring, a lack in confidence and even depression are just a few of the symptoms that are associated with adult acne. Today, one in five women between the ages of 25 and 40 suffer from it.


From stress to hormonal influxes during or after pregnancy, there are a number of causes for breakouts in adults, but very few effective solutions. ZAPZYT offers one of them!


Using a variety of dermatologist-recommended formulas, ZAPZYT acne treatments are fast-acting, effective and are free of alcohol, fragrances and dyes. The line offers two cleansers – the ZAPZYT Acne Wash Cleanser and Pore Clearing Scrub, and two on-the-spot treatments – the ZAPZYT Acne Treatment Gel and Pore Treatment Gel, which features medications AND soothing botanicals to help heal and moisturize skin. Each product ranges from $4 to $9.

I received a sample and fortunately, I don’t often suffer from adult acne. I did have a friend try this one out for me though and she was quite impressed with how well it works. She liked that it didn’t leave her skin looking and feeling dry and flaky.

They are also currently offering  5$ off on their Pore Treatment Gel. Click here to find out more!
