Cargo PlantLove: For Earth Day... and Beyond

You probably already know about Cargo's PlantLove lipstick. But in honor of Earth Day, I wanted to spotlight a cosmetic that is eco-friendly, and the PlantLove lipstick certainly fits that bill. First, the tube is made entirely out of corn - ok, give it up for that innovative move. Second, the box is made from paper embedded with wildflower seeds. Yup, you read that right. You plant the lipstick box in the ground, and you will get beautiful wildflowers! Love it!! Oh, and not unimportantly, the colors are gorgeous, too. I swear I spent an hour (or more) in Sephora (ok, that's not too hard to do) and I couldn't decide which color to buy. They were all so great. I kept browsing and then would come back to the PlantLove display to see if somehow a decision had been made for me, because as much as I wanted to, I just couldn't buy two lipsticks that day. Also, since some of the lipsticks are designed by celebrities, I had to factor that into my decision. I mean, I just couldn't bring myself to buy a lipstick by Maria Menounos - pretty, pretty girl but ever catch her on the Today Show? Ugh - like fingernails on a chalkboard. Anyway - Mariska Hargitay's color ended up the fave (Maria's shade wasn't "me" anyway).

Buying makeup and leaving a smaller carbon footprint - it's a beautiful thing! Happy Earth Day.

DOVE Giveaway!!!

On May 1st, I wrote about the new DOVE Ultimately Visibly Smooth Wild Rose Anti-Perspiring/Deodorant (click here to read). Well, it's been almost 8 weeks since I started using it, and I'm happy to say that overall I'm really pleased with this new deodorant. It has made the hair softer and, surprisingly, I did notice that my underarms do look better and smoother. I've always had issues with that, because as someone who is pale but has dark hair, even when freshly shaven my underarms still didn't look quite hair-free (this was particularly angst-inspiring during my teenage years). But the other day I noticed my underarms looked really good and didn't have the pit-version of the five o'clock shadow going on. Yay!
DOVE wanted to give you the chance to try this new product (if you haven't already!) and is going to give 2 lucky readers a full-size DOVE Ultimately Smooth Wild-Rose Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, along with coupons for $2 off future purchases of Ulti…

Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale

It's not just bras and panties that are marked down. Check it - makeup and other beauty products on sale for 75% off!! That is one secret I cannot keep! I wasn't planning on stopping in, but had to stop at the mall today to shop for a Father's Day gift for my hubby from our 4 year-old (another gift, actually, to go with the Elmo t-shirt we got for him last week. So cute!). But then I saw the sign for the Semi-Annual Sale and it said makeup on it, so into the store I went. I could have bought more, but I had a hungry child with me, though she did enjoy looking at all the pretty colors of body lotion and shower gels, so that kept her occupied,oh, for about 5 minutes. Anyway, I managed to score 4 products for $12.50. Sweet. And that included 2 - that's right - 2 full-size Very Sexy lipsticks. Uh huh. I also bought Bare Bronze Self Tanning Body Spray with Buriti Oil and an Everything Refresher Spray. The Bare Bronze was the splurge at $4.50. I am digging the Bare Bronze b…
