I am not a girlie girl. I am not into what is hot and now in fashion. I’m not up on the latest hair and make up trends. It’s just not me. I’m very conscious about my skin. And that’s where Nicole comes in.
As a teen, I’d have the occasional break out (usually on my chin around that time of the month), but I generally had very nice skin. Then when I was 21 and pregnant with my first child, it caught up to me.
I’ve tried just about every product under the sun – and nothing has seemed to work. I’d begun using the Mary Kay Timewise products, and I really liked them. My little frown/laugh lines diminished, my completion looked brighter, but I still had the adult acne.
My problem was that these products were too harsh on my skin. I tried one product (I won’t name it, but you’ve heard of it) that literally burned my face after 3 uses. I did see a dermatologist after that – and not even their prescription strength products worked… I thought I was doomed.
But wait! Nicole comes back from a Mary Kay conference with a brand new sensitive skin collection: Botanical Effects. I set up an appointment with her and she introduced me to the new line. We started with the dry skin set – in the winter I’m alway super dry. She let me try it there, and she even let me take it home for a few days to really see the effects on my skin. (Does the department store do that?)
I loved the cleanser – very gentle. But the moisturizer was a bit thick for my liking. I told Nicole and she said “Not a problem, let’s switch your lotion to ‘normal’.” And it’s working great for me.
After she switched my lotion, she also gave me the mask and refresher spray. The mask can actually be used as a scrub or mask – which I loved. The refresher is really nice as well, not a burning toner like I was use to. If you have sensitive skin – this product is definitely for you!
Now – cosmetics!
I’d never really worn make-up. I’d buy it for a special occasion, never wear it again. But now that I’m in a professional setting, I can’t look like a 14 year old.
Nicole has helped me find the right colors for me, taught me how to apply them (I had no idea how many looks you could get from just 3 eye shadow colors). It’s also extremely important to have the right tools, and know how to take care of them (yes, your dirty brushes can actually make your skin have bad reactions, and could even make you sick).
There are products for everyone – even guys! I got the High Intensity Cologne for my husband – I love it!
What I really like about Nicole is her desire to really help other women feel as beautiful as they are. It’s not about covering your face up with 4 inches of make up and portraying something you’re not. It’s about accenting the natural beauty that you are. She’ll keep you up to date on new products. And if you give her your husband/boyfriend’s contact info and your special dates (birthday, anniversary, etc.), she can even send them reminders and gift hints based on your wish lists or previous purchased. She can even help with the gift wrapping. Seriously guys – win/win!
So if you’ve never tried Mary Kay before, I encourage you to contact Nicole and try it now. Not only are the products amazing and very reasonably priced; but you will gain a new friend.
Mobile Spray Tanning
In the dull winter, sometimes we all need a quick pick me up. Something to remind us of warmer days, something to brighten our smiles.
Sometimes we have that special occasion, and even if we have the perfect outfit, something’s missing.
A spray tan may be what you need!
Have you tried a spray tan before, and didn’t like the results? All spray tanning products are not created alike. The products used by Beauty Call By Liz are made with all natural and organic ingredients. It allows you to have the look of being out in the sun all the time, without the harmful effects of the UV rays.
What I like about Beauty Call By Liz is that she came to me. I didn’t have to get in my car, drive somewhere, wait for my turn and then be pushed out the door. I’m a busy working mom – I rarely have time for myself (and have to schedule it weeks in advance!).
She arrived at my house and set up the mobile spray tent, hooked up her airbrush and we were ready to go. The process took maybe 20 minutes.
For me, she used the lightest level – as I’m naturally very pale. As she ‘warned’ me, the color deepened quite a bit throughout the day. But after I showered the next morning, it toned down quite a bit, something a bit more natural to my natural color.
Besides the convince of her coming to you, her prices are very reasonable. Guys, spray tanning gift certificates are a great gift for your lady!
If you’re getting married, your photographer will appreciate the even skin tone and color provided by a spray tan. Make plans to start tanning AT LEAST a month before your wedding, to find the right tone. A great thing about Beauty Call By Liz is that she has partnered with Alt B, and the services in this group can also help you prepare for your special day.
If you are interested in spray tanning, check out http://www.beautycallbyliz.com/ and schedule your appointment. Be sure to check out the Tanning Tips before Liz arrives, so that she is able to give you the best tan possible. And be sure to ask her about her great products (I love the Cocoa butter lotion!)
Check out Beauty Call By Liz – and make today beautiful!
I’d consider Star 105.5 to one of my favorite radio stations, has been for as long as I can remember. Great selection of music, I’m feel comfortable playing it around my kids (there are a few songs I’ll turn it down for [never off, I promise]… but that’s just my personal preference).
My husband usually would claim the radio before me in the morning – usually podcasts on his iPod. I don’t remember exactly when I regained control of the remote, so to speak. I remember turning it on, and just cracking up over something they were discussing. And as I continued listening, I remember being very thankful that they topics of conversation were not of content that I’d have to turn the radio off when my kids were in the room
Over the summer I was incredibly impressed by the City of the Week outings they were hosting. Working with small businesses, it’s important to me to see the ‘hidden gems’ that drive our communities highlighted. I looked forward to the pictures each week, and hearing the stories of many businesses that I never knew existed.
Along the same line, “Free Plug Friday” has been a joy to participate it. Several of my clients have had events over the last few months, and there’s nothing like getting a text from a client saying “OMG! We were on the radio.” (Thanks again guys!) I love hearing small businesses, and local events put on the forefront. Sometimes it seems that we don’t know about these until it’s too late.
I remember “Liking” their Facebook page, that first day I heard them. As social media is my field of expertise – these guys are rawking it out! When I look at other ‘local celebrity’ profiles, I don’t see nearly the interaction that these guys get. And it’s not just one sided – they are actually conversing with their listeners throughout the day via Facebook or Twitter. And the conversations are always interesting – there’s nothing like when your page gets hijacked and the conversation lasts for days!
I was able to finally meet the guys after months of social networking interactions. I totally thought they were joking when they invited me to the studio, but there I was. Super cool, super nice guys. I spend so much time promoting my clients, that it was actually weird to be talking about myself and my business. And again there’s nothing like getting a text from a friend “Um, was that you on the radio?”.
We sat and chatted for about 20 minutes off air, and honestly, these guys are awesome.
If you aren’t already listening to Tim and Jeff In The Morning – you should be! And if you are, join in on the conversation! Like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter (@r8dioTim and @JeffNtheMorning), or check them out at station events (at some point, I’ll make it out to a Wine Club Wednesday)
Thanks for all you’re doing for Toledo guys, on the air and off!
“I started Sylvania Area Photography out of my passion for photography. When I first started doing photography as a hobby I would take portraits of my children.
I just wanted more options – I don’t like the pictures that are cookie cutter images with different faces.
Then I started taking family portraits of my friends and family. This led me to expand my photographic knowledge and skill. I have spent countless hours shooting and editing photos and in doing this I have lit a fire inside me that burns hotter everyday.
I want my pictures to show the people in their element, having fun and being themselves.
I am passionate about my work and I am satisfied only when you are satisfied.“
