Mr. Perfect in a Bottle

Hey everyone!

With the Holidays just around the corner, I decided to open up my Philosophy Shower Gel in the scent The Gingerbread Man! I cannot wait to pamper myself all season long with this goodie!

Philosophy: It's wonderful when a guy doesn't say "Just relax," but rather "Let me help you relax." And so it is with The Gingerbread Man. He cleans, he soothes, he caresses, he pampers, and he loves me unconditionally. When I'm stressed out, he turns me inside out with warm ginger bubble baths that help me float away. The Gingerbread Man nourishes my soul from the tip of my nose to my little baby toe.

Now ladies, that sounds like Mr. Perfect all in one cute little bottle!

New Perfume Love - Burberry London

Hey everyone!

I opened my Burberry London Perfume bottle today, and I'm so excited, I just had to share!

About the Fragrance:
Burberry's new fragrance embodies the elegant, yet modern spirit of Burberry London. It epitomizes the cosmopolitan London lifestyle with independence and relaxed confidence.

Clementine, Honeysuckle, English Garden Rose, Tiare Flower, Jasmine, Peony, Veil of Musks, Indian Sandalwood, Patchouli

This is a rather strong perfume, but I think if you use a light hand, it can become a great staple in one's perfume collection!

Have you tried any of Burberry's Perfumes before?

Amika True Tattoo Ceramic Styler Review

Hey everyone!

This is a review on Amika’s True Tattoo Ceramic Styler!

Welcome to the world of Amika. We believe in the beauty of the everyday. Life is too short to spend it sweating in front of the mirror. The Amika ceramic styler allows you to quickly and easily create professional quality hairstyles while leaving your hair healthy, silky-smooth, hydrated and in place all day or night.

The styler features 100% ceramic plates. Ceramic radiates a different type of heat called far–infrared heat. Far–infrared heat is much gentler on the hair, preserving moisture in the hair shaft and protecting the hair cuticle from damage. Ceramic is also the ideal heat conductor and maintains even temperature.

The result is faster and more effective styling but without the damage of conventional heat styling tools. The floating plates adjust as you style which allows you to go beyond straightening and create wavy and curly styles. The floating plates create a smoother styling process so that there is no tugging or breaking.

My Amika True Tattoo Ceramic Styler is the best flat iron that I have owned to date! The heavy duty ceramic plates heat up super-fast to lock in natural oils, which makes styling a breeze, creating the illusion of salon perfect hair! That my friend is priceless!


~140 – 410 °F adjustable
~Time saver, ready to use in 10 seconds
~Unique floating plate design means no pulling, tugging, or unsightly creases.
~Professional straight, curly, or wavy styles at your fingertips

Adjust Temperature Based on Hair type:

~For bleached, fragile, damaged and fine hair, the lower setting is advised.
~For normal hair and regular use, a middle range temperature is recommended.
~For coarse, thick, and resistant hair in healthy condition, maximum heat on the high setting is used to save time and effort.

Styling Tips from Amika:

Straight Style
1. Run a comb through a small section of hair (about 1-2 inches), separating the hair strands. Remember, the 1.5 inch ceramic styler is for use on dry hair only.

2. Starting as close as possible to your scalp, place the combed section of hair in between the ceramic plates of your Amika ceramic styler. Close the styler with a gentle grip.

3. Slowly and carefully pull the styler away from your scalp, allowing your hair to glide through the ceramic plates. Because of the floating plates design you should not feel any pulling or tugging.

4. Repeat the above steps for all of your hair, section by section, until you are finished.

Curly Style
Insert a 2 inch section of hair between the plates. Gently squeeze handle together and glide styler to the ends; then while hair is still between the plates, wind hair around the plates. Hold a moment and release. The hair will bounce into a curl.

Flip Style
Insert a 2 inch section of hair between the plates, then squeeze the handle gently and glide slowly beginning at the roots. When you reach the section that you would like to flip out, simply flip out the styler.

This product retails for $145.00!


~High quality packaging
~Sturdy flat iron
~Trendy design
~Heats up quickly
~Adjustable temperature
~Floating, ceramic plates
~Easy to use and handle
~Includes two clips to help section hair


~Only use on dry hair

Overall, I rate this product at 4.75 out of 5 sugarcubes! Tame your mane with Amika’s True Tattoo Ceramic Styler!

There's an App!


It’s easy to find the nearest restaurant, hotel, coffee shop or bank at the push of a button with today’s technology. But what about the nearest medical care? When it comes to urgent care, time is of the essence—and having the right information is crucial. That’s why renowned Southern Florida physician Dr. Bruce W. Moskowitz, M.D., P.L. developed the Emergency Medical Center Locator (EMCL) iPhone app, a free, public service app that helps you find the specialized emergency medical center closest to you—no matter where you are in the world. Featuring only the most advanced, state-of-the-art emergency care facilities with proven track records of stellar care, the app directs you to the closest medical center in one of six specialty areas, proving accurate, reliable information that can literally make the difference between life and death.

According to data from a comprehensive stroke center, prolonged delay in hospital transfer excluded about 15% of otherwise-qualified stroke patients from intraarterial therapy. Transfer time averaged 104 minutes, with odds of treatment decreased about 2.5% for every minute of transfer time. Similarly, according to Duke Medicine News and Communications, only one in 10 patients who experience a major heart attack are transferred to another hospital to get necessary treatment within the recommended 30 minutes, with delays increasing death rate compared to patients moved in a timely fashion. “The data available confirms what any doctor can tell you: A rapid response is essential in the case of any medical trauma,” explains Dr. Moskowitz. “I developed this app to provide instant access to life-saving information internationally. Whether you’re in your hometown or halfway around the world, you can find the closest quality care at a moment’s notice. By going to the right facility first, you can avoid wasting precious time and increase your chances of recovery significantly.”

When emergency rooms are equidistant, choosing the center with certification or advanced expertise to handle the specific problem is essential. The EMCL app offers recommendations in six specialty areas that tend to require immediate care—Trauma, Stroke, Eye, Pediatric, Cardiac and Burn—directing users to the medical center with the most advanced facilities and best patient outcomes in the given specialty. Instant, accurate, and potentially life-saving, the app is an essential for every iPhone owner.
