Why, Kiehl’s, why?

23 Jun

Why must you discontinue the products I love most?

First it was your pretty, scented lip glosses. I could handle that, though – I have a million lip glosses, and yours really were no better than many others.

But your Milk, Honey & Almond Scrub? REALLY, KIEHL’S? REALLY???? One of two facial exfoliators I use constantly – the other being Kate Somerville’s ExfoliKate – and you’re taking it from me? The girl at the store told me it “wasn’t as popular” as some of your other scrubs, but the reviews on your website seem overwhelmingly positive. She recommended some other scrub of yours that’s unscented – the smell of the Milk, Honey & Almond Scrub was half the reason I loved it!

I have run out of reasons to go into your store now. Thanks for nothing, Kiehl’s.

Perfectly Posh – FREE SAMPLES!

27 May

Sooo.

I know it has been a long time. Too long. I have missed you, truly. I have so many things to blog about, so many products I have tried that have hit or missed, so many thoughts and ideas and…. but I also have a six month old who doesn’t sleep. Really, he is a robot. As a result, I have been lagging. But I have not forgotten you, or given up. So please don’t give up on me.

In the meantime… I have a friend who has begun selling Perfectly Posh products, and I want to give her some props. I won’t get into the whole story out of respect for her privacy. Long story short, she needs a job to make some money for a very worthwhile situation, but wants to be at home for her kiddos as well. I have been waiting to post till I had the opportunity to try at least ONE of the products, and I finally have and love it! Slather Body Butter in Brazilian Bombshell is super soft, moisturizing, and has a great scent – tropical, with a hint of coconut and passionfruit. I’ve been using it the last few days and plan to get more!

Anyhow, I am normally a bit suspicious of MLM/direct sales companies, and usually try to avoid them. However, I have done a bit of internet research on the company itself as well as the owner, and other than being a bit put off by the overly made up and somewhat severe photo of her on her site, found absolutely NOTHING of any concern.

Bottom line: check out my friend’s Perfectly Posh site (yes, this is a plug – I’m being totally up front about it) and then shoot me a line at lipglossandlife(at)live(dot)com with your name and mailing address and I will pop a sample of a Perfectly Posh product in the mail to you. I can’t take requests for specific samples as she only gave me a handful of them, but I promise if you’re among the first ten or so people to email me, you WILL get a sample in the mail within the next week or so.

That’s it, and I hope to be back to blogging with some sort of regularity in the very near future!

Business (Ad)Venture…

20 Jun

Soooo… I’m working from home now while I await the arrival of the little monkey. For a long time, my dream has been to open a body product/home fragrance/gift type store. I have been seriously toying with the idea for the last couple years, but I think I have finally decided that I am going to start as an internet business and if all goes well, after the baby comes, maybe consider opening an actual store as well.

I have so much to think about and do – first step is reading up on starting a business, next is finding someone to do web design, getting a business license, etc. I am excited and nervous and scared and more than a little worried I will fail, but if there’s one thing I know about, it’s cosmetics/body products/candles… well, that and music.

So anyhow, wish me luck and look for future news about the upcoming venture. It has a name, but I’m not going to share it just yet. 😉
