Holiday Treats That Are Bad For Your Skin

Nov 23, 2011   //   by Gabriella Conybeare   //   No Comments

Sugar/Sweets – Sugary treats like candy canes and gingerbread speeds up breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. This makes your skin weaker causing dreaded wrinkles.

Processed Meats – These easy luncheon options are high in sodium causing you to retain water and swell. Swelling and deflating from these foods can hurt the natural elasticity in your skin making it loose.

Alcohol – We all know that indulging in too many cocktails over the season wreaks havoc on your whole system. Drinking too much dehydrates your skin a lot causing a host of problem if your skin doesn’t get back the moisture it needs.

Review: Revlon Grow Luscious Lash Liners

Nov 18, 2011   //   by Gabriella Conybeare   //   No Comments

I’ve finally got around to swatching these liners from Revlon that contain conditioners to help lashes stay in good health. I’m really impressed! They glide onto the skin absolutely effortlessly and although there are only three colours, Onyx, Espresso and Emerald, they’re all very deep, rich shades – Emerald has a kick of shimmer, too.
The feel of the formula is feather-light and ultra silky – really gorgeous. I’ve used them on the top lid and water line and although I have a problem keeping anything on my water line for long, they really did have some staying power, and didn’t budge for hours from the top lid. At £6.29 I think they are very good value for the quality.  Have you tried these eyeliners? What do you think?

What you see here is probably the best news youll hear this year regarding the Indianapolis Colts. No team in the history of sports has missed its ailing superstar leader more than the Colts have, who have gone from Superbowl contender to winless at Week 9. The 10-year Indy veteran still puts in his work on every down, which is indicative of his elite status and recognition as one of the best defensive ends of this generation. Jordan Brand certainly recognized his play as he was issued these Player Exclusive Air Jordan III cleats in Black/Varsity Royal the same colorway that former teammate Marvin Harrison had. These, like Marvins PEs, dont feature any Jumpman logos on the upper (limited to Nike branding on the outsole).
