Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

2012-08-10 20.47.46
This is the turtle brush. You probably wonder why we call it the turtle. When my daughter first saw the brush she said mom! it looks like a turtle so now the brush has a name and it is no longer the knot genie in our house. My six year old daughter has fallen in love with the knot genie. My daughter will not use any other brush for her hair now because it is comfortable for her hands and it does not pull her hair. If you have the same battles I have had in the past with my daughter over brushing her hair it may be the time for the knot genie to come to your rescue.

How does this work?
The magic of the knot genie is because the lengths of the teeth on the brush are different. When one brushes their hair the teeth bend to help untangle the hair. When you pull your hair with a normal brush it damages the cuticle and creates split ends, as well as putting stress on your hair. This is why you need the knot genie. You will no longer have hair that is stressed out, nor have a child that is throwing a temper tantrum because her hair needs to be brushed. This brush is not like any ordinary brush it is cloud shaped and fits the palm of your hand pleasantly. Furthermore, you can use this if you’re left handed or right handed. This knot genie works great as a head massager too.
The knot genie has become the favorite brush in our household. My daughter  has become more independent with wanting to brush her own hair. I cannot thank Knot genie enough for making this useful brush. If you want to stop the meltdowns and tantrums you need to purchase one today! They have multiple colors to choose from and they even make teeny genies that are just the right size for small hands. Additionally, they are great when you are traveling. The regular size knot genie is $19.99 and the teeny genie is $14.99. Go here to check them out. Like them on Facebook
You can now enter below for your chance to win a Camo cloud Knot Genie! US only and within the 48 states (exclude Hawaii and Alaska) sorry folks. I will email the winner within 24 hours and the winner will then have 48 hours to respond before choosing another winner.

StarLook StarBox Review

2012-08-20 12starbox.jpg
What is Starbox?
StarLook StarBox is a monthly subscription program that you pay $15.00 a month and $1.98 shipping and you will receive 3-4 full size beauty items each month. The value is approximately $30.00 – $35.00 for each box. You can pay each month, 6 months, and yearly subscriptions. Boxes are shipped 3rd week of the month and should arrive within 3-10 business days depending on location.

2012-08-24 20.47.06
I received the August box and this box is Starlooks first ever special limited edition Starbox.This Starbox features makeup products hand-picked by fashion designer Lauren Bradley. The colors featured in this box were used on Lauren in her first Lookbook featuring her newly released lingerie line Le Sang Bleu. When you get your Starbox inside you will find a card explaining everything you received and the value of each item. In this special edition box there is an autographed card of Lauren Bradley. In each Starbox there is a mystic crystal. It is believed that mystic crystals attract energy, maintain focus, and are the ultimate symbol of beauty.
Let’s get to the items inside the box! I am sure you are all curious to see what we have.
2012-08-24 20.47.15
I received three items in my box this month. I will show you each one and talk about them.
2012-08-24 20.47.35
Sculpture Infinity Cream liner. This cream liner is very creamy and pigmented. The color is a smokey, neutral charcoal that can be paired with any makeup color, lipstick, and outfit you choose to wear. One can wear this day or night. This is waterproof and smudge proof. If you love the sultry eye this eyeliner can create a great sultry eye look. Starlook retail value $9.00
2012-08-26 23eyeliner.jpg
This is not my best attempt to putting on eyeliner as it was really late at night and I did not use my primer. Primer over the eyes before applying eyeliner in my book is paramount, as it will help keep your eyeshadow and eyeliner more intact especially during the heat. I did this in the dark as the kids were sleeping. However, you get an idea how pretty this eyeliner is in color. I thought it was pigmented well in color and it applied on smooth. You do not need a mass of color on the brush at one time. This eyeliner is going to match well with my smokey eye palette. If you want to create a smokey eye this eyeliner will smudge nicely before it dries
2012-08-24 20brush.jpg
Pointed Slant Eyeliner Brush. This eyeliner brush creates a perfect line for the top of the eyelid. In addition this brush is 100% synthetic Japanese Nylon. This in turn allows the brush to glide over the lid with flexibility and ease. No grabbing or gathering of the eyelids during application. Starlook retail value is $12.00
My Verdict – I thought this brush was great for applying eyeliner. Dip the brush gently into your cream eyeliner and then glide it across your lash line as close as possible to your eyelash. For beginners you can use a pencil to map it out on your eyelash line first before applying the cream eyeliner. I do not use this on my waterline. I recommend using pencil eyeliner for the waterline or you can use this brush with the cream eyeliner below the waterline
.
2012-08-24 20lipgloss.jpg
This is the Pink Petal Rose lipgloss. This lip gloss is very creamy and has a nice light pink color. It works great when paired with a lipstick. In addition, it is very shiny and glossy. Starlook retail price of $11.00
2012-08-26 23lipgloss.jpg
As you can see the color is not very bright. However it has incredible shine. If I was to use a lipstick in a darker color it would make it pop with this on top. I love lipgloss  because you can create many different looks with them.
My verdict of the box
I loved my box this month. The total value of this box is $32.00. For only $15.00 a month plus $1.98 shipping you can get this value as well. Check them out and give it a try. Let them know Tricia’s Treasures sent you. I am not affiliated nor receive any compensation for that.

Unwind With Harvey Prince Eau de Toilette Review and Giveaway!

About Harvey Prince
Harvey Prince was founded by two brothers that wanted to give a gift to their mother. Their mother was an inspiration to them and they wanted to create a product that feels and smells great. They created the perfect scent on Mother’s Day that captured her radiant aura. The scent is Ageless. Ageless was the first signature collection that made up this great industry. Only the finest ingredients are used in their products. There are no toxic chemicals in their perfumes. Each scent has a purpose and story.
I had the opportunity to try Harvey Prince and think these perfumes are beautiful in scent. They are for sure going to make you feel wonderful.

2012-08-17 21harveyprince.jpg
Harvey Prince Eau De Lite
This is a fragrance I never knew existed until I saw it on Harvey Prince. Who would have ever thought of a fragrance to help you lose weight? This perfume has soft notes of fresh green apple, peppermint, and vanilla. Studies have been shown that those scents help curb appetites. Eau de Lite is natural and safe to use. All you need to do is put this perfume on when you are tempted to indulge.
My Verdict
I could not wait to try this perfume as I get the most terrible cravings at night. Night time is the worst time to eat because you are not as active. I tested this out the first day I got it and I was having a awful craving for some chocolate. Anyone that knows me, knows that chocolate is a staple in my diet. I love chocolate. However, chocolate does not love me. I sprayed some on my wrists and then put some on my neck so I could get a real close smell of the scent. Immediately I noticed the sweet smell of the apple and the notes of peppermint.  I was very surprised because I did not feel I needed to eat anything at that point. Is this what we all have been waiting for? No pills, no drugs, and no stimulants. Just simply put this on when you feel temptation will defeat you. You can purchase this on their website at Harvey Prince
ageless
Ageless
Ageless has notes of Pink Grapefruit, Pomegranate, and Mango with a dry down of Jasmine and natural musk. Ageless is inspired by recent studies conducted by the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, which find pink grapefruit and mango to be the olfactory antidote to aging. The fragrant notes disguise the familiar scent of age, caused by the breakdown of particular fatty acids in your skin.
My Verdict
This is a very light perfume in scent. I can smell a scent of Pink Grapefruit followed by jasmine and musk. I do not think it is overpowering in scents. It makes you feel fresh and young. Lovely perfume to try. You can purchase this product at their website Harvey Prince
hp10flirt
Eau Flirt
This fragrance is irresistible and flirty. This fragrance contains notes of pumpkin pie and lavender. Those notes have been shown to show a more passionate response in men than any other smell. Experts believe men subconsciously associate pumpkin and lavender with happy, positive, and stimulating flourish.
My Verdict
This fragrance is a hard one for me to describe to you. I can smell more of a citrus smell than a pumpkin pie. I do not smell lavender either. I like the aroma that it has to the perfume. However I would have liked to smell  the pumpkin and lavender.
hello
Hello
This fragrance is one of the most energizing fragrances that Harvey Prince has. The twist of citrus jump out to you and says Hello! The scents are invigorating and are layered with summer Forsythia which is a Spring floral plant that spreads cheer all around you. After wearing this fragrance one will start to smell the captivating aroma of Pink Plumerias which is found in the fragrant floral Leis of Hawaii.
My Verdict
This perfume has a refreshing scent. The smell has strong notes of lemon and mandarin. I left this perfume on all day and noticed that the citrus scent gently lifted and left behind a beautiful aroma that smelled like a sweet smelling flower.
yogini
Yogini
Yogini is relaxing, lasting, and light fragrance that will make you feel as good as you smell. This perfume has the highest quality of natural essences and oils. Experience the smells of Sandalwood and the age-defying glow of grapefruit. Yogini is Nature’s solution to stress.
This fragrance has notes of Sandalwood, golden amber, sensual incense, Egyptian myrrh, pink grapefruit, blackcurrant buds, Lilly of the valley, star jasmine, rose petals, ylang-ylang, cardamom, and Madagascar vanilla.
My Verdict
This perfume is my favorite so far. I loved the woodsy smell of the sandalwood. I think sandalwood can have many variations of scent. However this one to me smelled woodsy. I could smell the sweet aroma of grapefruit and golden amber. This is truly a beautiful scent that will last a long time on your skin.
You can purchase all of these wonderful perfumes on their website. Harvey Prince

Violent Lips Review and Giveaway

GD_MOCK_BLUEREDWHITE_medium
To celebrate the football season I wanted to have my game day lips on. These are the most neat lip tattoos I have ever seen. I was sent two different sets of lip tattoos to try.
One was from the Glitterati collection and one is the game day colors for the Patriots! I have lived in Massachusetts most of my life and have only lived in Florida for three years so I am a fan of New England! You can choose many different colors to show your support for your teams. Violent Lips offers several different collections such as Glitteratti, Glitteratti Mix, Patriotic, Crazy for Colors, Animal Prints, Pretty in Pink, Racy in Red, and Spring and Summer collection. Some collections you may get two appliques and others three you will have to read the packaging to determine how many are in each. I will now explain to you how to apply these appliques. When they came in the mail my daughter took over the purple ones and I tried the game day. This was my first attempt at it so definitely not my best. However, it was a lot of fun!
*NOTE* Make sure your lips are completely dry before doing any of this.
2012-08-22 20.14.32
Take your applique out of the packing and inside you will see full directions on how to apply.
2012-08-22 20.09.06
As you can see this is what the applique looks like. I should have turned it around but the top lip part is on the bottom in the picture. Now I will go through each step with you so that you can see how it is done.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:A pair of Scissors, a Mirror, Cotton Balls, Water
Remove the applique out of the stencil
MEASURE: Line the center of the top lip appliqué to your cupid and measure the width and depth of your lip with your mouth open to a wide “Ahh” Shape. Make sure to stay outside your water line. Remember that the edges of your mouth also have a waterline that you need to cut to.
**NOTE** ** The BIGGEST difference between applying the Glitteratti Collection, and the existing line of Violent Lips Appliqués is that you must measure and apply the lips with your mouth open to a relaxed “Oh” shape.
2012-08-22 20directions.jpg
CUT: Cut to your measurements using the horizontal and vertical guides on the back of the lips.
2012-08-22 20.12.08
After you cut the sides,  you will need to measure to cut horizontal. However, Never cut from the top line of the top Violent Lip pattern Never Cut from the bottom line of the bottom Violent Lip Stencil
2012-08-22 20.jpg
PEEL: Peel the plastic film off the appliqué.
APPLY: Put the sticky side of the appliqué on your lips, making sure to keep your mouth in the wide “Ahh” shape. Soak the paper backing in water using your cotton ball until the paper starts to slide off.
2012-08-22 20.apply.jpg
You will do the same for the bottom as well.
SEAL: Seal and smooth the appliqués with a generous amount of water using your cotton swab.
** Wait 5 minutes for your lips to fully dry before you apply any product over your lips, eat or drink
2012-08-22 20violentlips.jpg
This is the finished product. I did mess up but it was my first attempt. I recommend apply a thin coat of lip balm, as your lips will feel very dry and almost like plastic. Once I applied the lip balm my lips felt more natural. This will last between 4-6 hours. Do not eat anything high in oil content or greasy as it may start to peel. I recommend using a straw to drink from. I really love the look and I had a lot of fun applying them.

Tip –To ensure your lip balm or glass will not take off the applique prior to application, test with remaining excess. Seal an excess piece to your hand utilizing water to seal, determine the effects by applying the lip balm or gloss over the applique on your hand.
2012-08-22 20glitter.jpg
2012-08-04 15bailey.jpg
This is from the Glitteratti collection. The color is a little dark in the photo. However, it is a very beautiful purple with a nice sparkle! I think my daughter did a great job applying it and had fun with it too! Check them out today at ViolentLips. They have videos, tips and you can see all their wonderful collections.

Run Away To Paradise With Pacifica

pacifica
About Pacifica
FOUNDERS_STORY_Image
Brook Harvey-Taylor always had a fascination for different scents. As a young girl, she loved incorporating spices to construct new aromas. While in high school, she began reading a book by Tom Robbins’ Jitterbug Perfume that in turn, intrigued her interest further into mixing her own fragrances from essential oils. Brook became apprentice in aromatherapy during her college years and enjoys making her own personal scents.
A Modern West Coast Take on Perfuming
PACIFICA SPRAY PERFUMES

pacificaspray.jpg
Pacifica perfumes are made with natural grain alcohol. Natural Grain Alcohol is created from the fermentation process of grains. Natural Grain Alcohol is not like synthetic chemical alcohols as Natural Grain Alcohol is non-abrasive, non-drying and helps to preserve moisture in the skin and hair. Therefore, your skin and hair will not be left feeling dry. These fragrances have unlimited ways of creating the scent you want to achieve. One can wear them by pairing together to layer various scents or wear them alone. Pacifica perfume has numerous blends to try.

The spray perfume I tried is called the Mexican Cocoa. When I think of Mexican Chocolate spicy comes to my mind. Pacifica’s Chocolate Cocoa perfume has a blend of natural and essential oils containing scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, almost clove, and patchouli. Patchouli plant is a member of the mint family and grows in tropical climates. The essential oil is extracted by steamed distillation of the leaves. As the patchouli ages the aroma becomes stronger and develops earthy scents. Patchouli oil can aid in many skin conditions such as acne, eczema, inflamed, cracked, chapped, and irritated skin. Furthermore, as a fragrance it helps calm your soul and bring you a sense of nourishment. In addition, This perfume has no parabens, animal testing, animal ingredients or artificial colors.

When I first applied this perfume I noticed right away the strong smell of cocoa with a sweet smell of vanilla. The smells of cinnamon and clove are highlighted lightly within the perfume smell. After wearing this perfume for some time I noticed that the cocoa smell lasts quite a long time. I did not have to re-apply as once the cocoa fades the aroma of vanilla and cinnamon are left behind. This perfume is sure to ignite passion and pleasure to your life. Try it today! This is one of their most popular scents.

Pacifica’s roll on perfumes is a great way to touch up while on the go. These roll on perfumes are the same fragrances you can find as the sprays. These fragrances come in a beautiful printed glass vial that makes transporting easy. I always hated lugging a bottle of perfume around in my purse! Now it is easier as this small vial is slender and takes up less space. In addition they make the perfect gift!
The scent I tried is the Malibu Lemon Blossom. This fragrance is amazing in site and smell. The fresh smell of the salt sea air and citrusy smell of lemons make me feel spectacular, fresh, and feel clean. This is my favorite lemon scented fragrance thus far. It has just a touch of saltiness but it is not overwhelming.
All the scents in the spray collection are in the roll on collection as well.
