The Argan Oil Revolution continues! Josie Maran’s latest launch – the Argan Moisturizing Stick – debuted today and is now exclusively available at Sephora.com ($22.00).
Josie’s best-selling Argan Oil now comes in a stick form; this multi-purpose balm offers all the benefits of the nourishing oil, which includes anti-aging ingredients rich in fatty acids and vitamin E. A head-to-toe spot treatment for dry areas in need of moisture, this soothing balm conditions and repairs skin as it hydrates.
Use it to moisturize chapped lips, soothe dry skin, tame fly aways, alleviate itching and stinging from insect bites, moisturize dry cuticles, relieve chafing skin, soothe stretch marks, calm sunburn, soothe waxed skin, and much, much more.
When I heard about Aveda’s new Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener – which promises to “straighten and smooth hair while adding lustrous shine and protecting the cuticle from heat damage” – I was intrigued, yet skeptical. That’s quite a bold claim, Aveda…but you haven’t met my mop top.
You see, my hair has some serious behavioral issues and likes to test my patience on a daily basis. So I wasn’t expecting much when I smoothed a silver dollar-sized dollop through my towel dried tresses. But after my hair was fully blow dried, I was (pun intended) blown away.
I kid you not…my hair was so straight, soft and shiny that if you didn’t know any better, you would have sworn that I took a few passes at it with a flat iron!
Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener is available at Aveda stores and aveda.com.
You know how Oprah gives away her favorite things? Well, of course you do – unless you’ve been living under a boulder. Anyway, this week, I’m giving away one of my favorite things…the Stamps ladies’ favorite things, actually (my maiden name is Stamps, by the by).
My sister, Lauren, is a huge fan of Zoya’s Color Lock System Kit. And as I write this, Mama Spoiled Pretty is sporting Zoya’s Renee on her tips and I’m rocking Paz on my toes. So without further ado, I present this week’s contest, sponsored by Zoya.
Three winners will receive Zoya’s TruthandDare Collections.
Truth Collection(above): classic, bright and straightforward Penny – copper gold metallic Kalmia – rose copper metallic Salma – scarlet red metallic Isla – venetian red metallic Anaka – fuchsia metallic glimmer Drew – mauve rose metallic
Dare Collection: edgy, dark and mysterious Vanessa – blue red cream Ciara – burgundy plum cream Demi – purple mauve cream Pinta – inky violet cream Envy – gleaming Jade green Ibiza – gleaming Sapphire blue (with a little shimmer too)
To enter the giveaway, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Zoya Truth and Dare Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, August 16th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, August 17th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents.
For the first time in Project Runway history, eight former fan favorites and Project Runway superstars are returning to the catwalk to compete against one another in the two-hour special, Project Runway: All-Star Challenge. The spirited competition premieres Thursday, August 20, at 8PM ET/PT and will be followed by the highly anticipated premiere of the sixth season of Project Runway at 10PM ET/PT and the debut of the all-new companion series, Models of the Runway, at 11PM ET/PT.
At stake for the designers are not only the ultimate bragging rights, but also a $100,000 cash prize. Will the designers be up to the challenge of returning to the workroom, working under the “Gunn” (as in Tim Gunn) to create a successful fashion line? Are they ready to, once again, face the critiques of Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, as they showcase their creations?
The designers competing in Project Runway: All-Star Challenge are:
Daniel Vosovic, Season 2 Santino Rice, Season 2 Jeffrey Sebelia, Season 3 Uli Herzner, Season 3 Mychael Knight, Season 3 Chris March, Season 4 Sweet P, Season 4 Korto Momolu, Season 5
I’m rooting for Mychael (my favorite PR alumnus) to redeem himself and take it all. Who will you be cheering for?
