Purely Gorgeous: Lip & Foot Scrub Review/Giveaway

This time of year, I have the tendency to put my pedicure on hold. My heels get dry and cracked because of the weather and I am on my feet quite a bit through the day! I used Purely Gorgeous's Peppermint Foot Scrub and fell in love! I love sugar scrubs but never tried them on my feet. Oh how I was missing out! It moisturized my feet and they feel soft after I use the scrub.

This is definitely something I will use from now on in the winter months and even in the summer between pedicures! If you are looking for a great product to help your dry feet, I would definitely try Purely Gorgeous Peppermint Foot Scrub. It is inexpensive and you get a lot for the money!

100% Vegan, No Parabens, No Sulfates, No Phthalates

Just like my feet, my lips also get chapped and dry. Purely Gorgeous also has Lavender Lip Scrub that is amazing for exfoliating all of that dry skin! For me, wearing lip stick or lip stain with chapped lips is never a pretty site.  Using the scrub every day right before you apply your lip sticks will help for smooth application. The lavender also smells nice and helps relax your mood. Apply a small amount on your lips and rinse off.  As simple as that! Works like magic for dry, chapped lips!

Both scrubs would make wonderful gifts for anyone for just about any occasion!

My Addiction Jewelry Designs: Bracelet Review/Giveaway

My Addiction Jewelry Designs has a very large selection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings to choose from. She makes them all by hand. Her "ADDICTION" for jewelry making has had some pretty amazing outcomes. I always can't wait to see the new items she has created. To top it all off, she has extremely reasonable prices for hand made jewelry!

I have always been a fan of pearls because I think they're classy and you can never go wrong wearing them! My Addiction Jewelry Designs was kind enough to send me a beautiful pearl bracelet with purple bead accents. I was very intrigued by the design of this bracelet because I had never seen anything like this before. The little loops create a very dressy feel to the bracelet. The clasp also seems very sturdy. When ordering jewelry from my addiction, make sure to send her your wrist size so that she can make sure she sends you the perfect size for your needs.  All in all, My Addictions sells quality made, hand-crafted jewelry for a great price!  Make sure to take a look at her online site to find a nice stocking stuffer for a family member, or to treat yourself to a Christmas gift of your own!

SOAPZILLA: Sugar Scrub Review/Giveaway

Recently, I got the opportunity to work with this amazing shop on Etsy called SOAPZILLA. They make everything from soaps and scrubs to lip balms. I was immediately drawn to how many different soap scents they have and when I saw the sugar scrub I knew that it was something I was very interested in trying! 

I am a hairstylist, and for about 5 hours a day, my hands are in some type of water. Whether its shampooing a client or spraying down their hair with a spray bottle, my hands are constantly touching wet hair. My hands get so dry, that they start to split and crack! It is not only unattractive but it is very painful.

When I first tried SOAPZILLA'S Peppermint Sugar Scrub, I was very impressed with how it made my dry hands feel, and also the way it smelled. The scent of peppermint always makes me feel clean and refreshed! I scooped up a small amount in my hands and rubbed them together for about a minute and then rinsed. The essential oils stay and absorb into your skin leaving them feeling very very smooth. I dried my hands, waited about 5 minutes, and followed up with a moisturizing hand balm. The sugar scrub is a great for exfoliating all of that dry skin. You could use this on other parts of your body as well. Elbows, knees, and feet would be amazing to use it on. I had never owned a sugar scrub before this, but I am positive I will always keep some in my house. It has helped out my hands tremendously!
