Nutra Sonic Facial Cleansing System Review & GIVEAWAY!!! ~ CLOSED



I have the weirdest skin. One day I wake up and it's so oily I could probably sprinkle some seasoning on my face and dip some warm Italian bread on it. (I know....YUCK!) Then the next day it will be soooooooo dry that no matter the amount of moisturizer I apply I can't seem to get rid of the flakes!

When I received my Nutra Sonic Cleanings System in the mail I just so happened to be right in the middle of a flake-out. I was sooooooo excited to put this thing to the test. 

I was amazed how soft and wonderful it felt on my skin. I was convinced that something this soft would NEVER be able to remove my flakes. For some reason I seem to think that the rougher the cleaning the better the exfoliating is but I always forget that being rough can totally destroy your skin!

After the FIRST use I could totally see and FEEL a difference......no SERIOUSLY!

My skin felt pretty close to the bum of my sweet little 3 month old! Yes....that soft!

Bye Bye Flake-Out!!!!

 



The Sonic technology gently oscillates and shakes dirt, dead skin cells and make-up loose. By removing such impurities you promote healthy skin cell growth.

The Nutra Sonic is gentle enough to be used daily (which is what I've been doing). It came with 3 brush heads, one for sensitive skin, one for normal skin and one for the body. YES...you can also use this on your body!!!

1. NUTRASONIC® provides superior skin cleaning as compared to other methods (cleansers or soaps used alone).

2. 93% of patients reported noticeable improvement in skin firmness and elasticity.

3. 89% reported noticeable improvement in skin tightness and tone.

4. 86% reported noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

5. 100% of patients reported noticeable improvement in overall skin appearance.

*NOTE: No skin irritations or other adverse reactions were reported by any of the patients.

Awk2theWard Wednesday (March 23rd)



Okay so I have this toddler. She's two....terrible two! Like seriously. I had no idea someone so small could be so terrible. My days are filled with lots of whines {and not the kind you drink though that would probably make my days less terrible}, a few tantrums and never eating her lunch.

I luv her to death but at this point I'm pulling all the stops when it comes to getting her to behave. Telling her "Santa is watching" worked for about 2 days (even though it was February!). Then I moved on to the Easter Bunny.....she didn't really enjoy him last year so I included him in my scared straight tactics. I'm pretty sure she doesn't even remember who the bunny is. Now I am using "The monkey is watching and he won't be happy if you act like that". Who is "the monkey" you ask....






For Valentine's day Miss Terrible Two's daddy brough her home this cute little monkey. He has a banana magnetically attached to his mouth. When you remove the banana he goes all crazy! Like jungle monkey crazy. I admit at first I was startled too but Miss TT was straight up scared. We hid him for a few days until I brought him out again to see if she had a change of heart. NOPE but she didn't scream this time just stared and crawled away signing "All done".

So when Santa and the Easter Bunny no longer worked I started telling her The Monkey was watching.

The other day at Target Miss TT is throwing a total hissy fit in the stroller. I tried my best to ignore it but to keep the others sane around us in the clothing department I said "Miss TT, The Monkey is watching you and he won't be very happy to see you acting like this". You should have seen the looks I got. Wonder if they really think we have a money or if they thought I was the WORST. MOM. EVER.



Now, be a good bargain shopper and post your Awk2theWard moment today. Heck, do it every Wednesday! Just make sure you visit Amy (and me too!) to laugh at us and link up!!!!

Luminess Air Review & a GIVEAWAY!!! ~ CLOSED

don't forget to enter the Stella & Dot Giveaway!!




We've all seen them, the commercials on TV for Luminess Air. You know, the airbrush make-up system that is Dermatologist recommended. Well, I must confess I was TOTALLY intimidated but this thing!


But why?? I mean the pretty pink box and shiny silver case are far from being scary. But something just kept telling me I could NOT handle it and would end up looking like Bozo the Clown. I had visions of turning the system on only to find I couldn't control the sprayer and it would over power me and I'd be sitting there with it spraying around like an out of control fire hose.

Well, I'm happy to report this is all FAR from the truth!

After a week of the box sitting on my counter, begging me to just open it and give her a chance I finally broke down. After looking over the users guide I popped in the DVD and watched the SIMPLE easy to use instructions. Yes....I said SIMPLE!



I started by deciding which shade was best for me. Though I am a Florida girl I am pretty pasty so I went with the lightest of shades. I began by getting "familiar" with the stylus and "gas pedal". You see, the "gas pedal" is the KEY to making sure your application is smooth and natural looking. I tested my skills on the closest thing in arms reach, a CLEAN diaper. ;) Pushing the "gas pedal" too far back results in pretty much all your foundation coming out in one spot and pushing it too light means you'll be sitting there forever waiting for your flawless skin. Like I said the "gas pedal" is the KEY so I took my time getting to know my new friend.

Once I was comfortable with the technique that worked best for me, I began my transformation. I put about 8 drops of the liquid in and turned her on.The stylus sprays with cooling air {duh...it's an air brush machine} and it feels AMAZING! This air also helps to dry the foundation so that you can apply another layer if needed. It only takes seconds to dry.

The process only takes a minute or two. You want to go slow and keep the stylus moving. Stopping will result in blotches. And once you are finished clean-up is even simpler. Simply add a small amount of water into the stylus and "flush" it out. EASY AS PIE!

Here are a two videos to show you just how easy it really is!

I must say I have TERRIBLE lighting in my bathroom...no natural light at all! My face looks WAY better in person.....I mean that in a non-conceited way ;)








This photo is in the natural light of my living room after application

This photo is in the bathroom where I did the videos


A few tips I'd like to share:
  • Shake the foundation before putting the drops in
  • Don't put too much foundation in and waste it....you can always add more!
  • ALWAYS keep your hand moving when spraying
  • When getting used to the "gas pedal"  and practicing, use a shade of foundation you won't be using so not to waste the one you will ;)

Some people may think that because Luminess Air isn't sold in stores it would be a pain to re-order and wait. BUT joining their Makeup Club helps with that, you get an automatic shipment every month to ensure you always have a supply available.

Some may feel it's too much of an investment. Can you really put a price on HEALTHY skin? How do you apply it your makeup now?? With your finger? A brush? A sponge? This tools are contaminated which will lead to unhealthy skin. No cross-contamination with this!!!

Some may also think they just won't use it very often to justify the price. Well, I admit at first I thought that. That I'd only use for "special occasions" but the more I used it I discovered it doesn't take any longer than (possibly less!) it does to apply my traditional foundation. Everyday use is possible!

In case you are curious, it feels VERY light on the skin and cleans off SUPER easy!!!

Awk2theWard Wednesday (March 9th)


I'm starting something new here at SD&H

My good friend Amy does Awk2theWard Wednesday over on Buggie and Jellybean and let me tell you it is spit your food out FUNNY!

We all could use a few laughs to get us through the rest of the week. We all have stress whether it be from our jobs, kids, spouses, pets, LIFE.

A good laugh is good medicine so here is your first dose!!


First off, I am actually part of Amy's Awk2theWard post today so feel free to take a trip over there and laugh at me......PLEASE....do it....'cause I laughed too!


My Awk2theWard moment is a tribute to the Space Shuttle Discovery's final landing today.

Good 'ol Discovery is being retired!



Since Amy put me on blast for a current Awk2theWard moment I thought I pull out one from my past....

As a Floridian you'd think the shuttle taking off and landing would be something I'd be familiar with. But nooooooooo! One evening a few years ago (as in when I was in high school) I was home alone and heard this terrible LOUD noise! I was certain someone was breaking into my house so I did what any female home alone should do in this situation, I called my uncle. Not the police....my uncle! ;)

He wasted no time and hopped in his truck and headed over. While on his way he decided to call the police and share with them my "dilemma" so they arrived just as he did. They searched the front and back yard and couldn't find a thing. No foot prints, no random strands of hair ;), no black gloves...NOTHING.

Then one of them said something that will haunt me FOREVER! "Was is just ONE loud boom?" to which I replied "YES!" to which he followed with....."You know, the Space Shuttle entered the atmosphere about that time.....ma'am I'm pretty sure what you heard was the Sonic Boom."

So there I stood.....my uncle laughing at me and two handsome men in uniform pretty much thinking I was a looney!

LAUGH....go ahead! I do, and so does ALL of my family EVERY time a shuttle is scheduled to come back to Earth!

Now, be a good bargain shopper and post your Awk2theWard moment today. Heck, do it every Wednesday! Just make sure you visit Amy (and me too!) to laugh at us and link up!!!!

Hayden J Review & Discount!!!



Have you entered the Stella & Dot Necklace Giveaway???






When you hear the word FANNY PACK what comes to mind?

Seriously.....what comes to mind??

This maybe.......


Well, that's what I think of when I hear FANNY PACK!!

a few things....
  • This is NOT me or my family though it could easily have been about 20 years ago!
  • And if this is you I am SORRY I posted it but I did take the time to "disguise" you...that makes it okay...right!?

A few girlfriends and I are doing a GIRLS ONLY trip to NYC in a few months and I was thinking a fanny pack would be the perfect accessory for walking around the city.

So, I started searching online and was PLEASED to discover the fanny pack got a face lift! Actually, it got a complete head to toe makeover if you ask me! Matter of fact some have even "renamed" it a Bum Bag or Hip Pouch!

I looked to one of my favorite sites (etsy) for some inspiration and found Hayden J.



A store full of one of a kind creations. Each item is crafted from unique prints and patterns with special attention paid to detail, quality & functionality. Styles you can find are Cosmetic Bags, Totes, Key Fobs, Clutches, Computer sleeves/bags, and many more goodies made from an array of quality cotton canvases & twills.


I was sooooo excited when my new fanny pack hip pouch arrived!

This pouch is VERY well made and seems pretty durable.



Some of it's features:
adjustable strap that can be worn MANY different ways
the strap can also be removed to attach to your favorite belt
designer, durable fabric
reinforced base
zipper and heavy duty snap closures




and big enough to hold all my essentials when walking the streets of New York City!!

wallet ~ CHECK
iPhone ~ CHECK
lipstick ~ CHECK
hand sanitizer ~ CHECK
keys ~ CHECK
iPod ~ CHECK


I had hoped to get some of my own pics of the pouch in "action" but my camera is out of commission :(
{you'll just have to wait until June when I post pics from NYC :)}

Here are some of the ways you can wear your hip pouch....

{this is actually of photo of the large pouch}


Hip Pouches aren't the only things Hayden J has to offer....

I give this Hayden J Hip Pouch 5 heels!
