Ring in the New Year with 4 Looks from‏

Hey everyone!

Happy Friday! Liz Lange and her sister Jane Wagman, founders of, are the go to experts when it comes to finding the perfect look for any occasion. Now, they share with you four amazing looks for New Years Eve, whether you’re spending it at the beach or on the slopes.

Home for the holidays
Just because you’re planning on staying home for New Years Eve, either hanging with a significant other or spending time with a small group of friends, it doesn’t mean you should be in a boring pair of jeans and a tee shirt.  Try incorporating a fun color like bright pink pants, and pair with a classic white shirt.  Dress it up with fun jewelry and a cute pair of heels.

Party at a Club
Everyone loves a good fancy party on New Year’s Eve. A cream color cocktail dress is so versatile, make sure its super cute with a big skirt or embellished details because you can never be “over dress” for New Year’s Eve. Add in a splash of sparkle with a fun clutch and party-right pump. 

Fair Weather Destination
Lots of people, us included, are heading to the warmer weather to ring in 2012.  There’s nothing better than pulling out a bright, floral dress like in the dead of winter. Pair it with a gold wedge and fun clutch and you’ll be seasonally appropriate and chic.

Ski Lodge
No one wants to spend hours getting all dressed up when they’ve spent the day hitting the slopes.  Adorned leggings (sequin ones to be exact!) are very ski-lodge appropriate and still comfortable!  Pair it with a neutral colored sweater and a cute faux fur vest, and finish the look with a classic black pump.  You’ll be turning heads as you ring in the New Year in style.

Bath & Body Works Foaming Handsoap Review

Hey everyone!

This is a review on Bath & Body Works’ Creamy Pumpkin Foaming Hand Soap!

Soft bursts of lightweight foam gently wash away dirt and germs, while leaving skin soft and lightly scented with a comforting blend of gingered pumpkin, caramel cream and whipped vanilla.

An exclusive blend of moisturizing honey, coconut milk and olive fruit extracts helps to nourish and soften skin, while Mango fruit extract gently cleans hands and leaves them feeling conditioned and soft.

Bath & Body Works’ Creamy Pumpkin Foaming Hand Soap is the most aromatic anti-bacterial soap that I have tried by far! Its rich lather smells as if I’m holding a piece of scrumptious pumpkin pie in the palm of my hand, which for me is a little slice of heaven!

This product retails for $5.50!

~Sweet smelling
~Relaxing scent
~Lightweight foam rinses clean
~Leaves hands feeling soft

Amika Leopard Mini Ceramic Styler Review

Hey everyone!

This is a review on the Amika Leopard Mini Ceramic Styler!

Stumped this holiday season on the purrrfect gift to give the feline in your life; then get her Amika’s Leopard Mini Ceramic Styler, because she won’t be able to keep her paws off of it! The dual voltage for travel heats up hotter than a cat on a hot tin roof at 400 degrees, with infrared heat. While ceramic floating plates adjust easily to make styling fast, fun, and fashionable!

Far Infrared Technology

Far Infrared Heat softens your hair faster, works to seal in the hair’s cuticle, locks in hair color, and gives you the same silky, glossy results you expect from your professional hair salon. Your final result is shiny, silky, static-free, no-frizz manageable hair with unlimited styling potential. The secret to sexy, radiant hair is in moisture and shine. With Far Infrared Heat Technology and the ceramic plates of the Amika Ceramic Styler, you know your hair is being treated gently.

Styling Tips from Amika:


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

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

~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. Repeat the above steps for all of your hair until you are finished.


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


~Insert a two inch section of hair between the plates. Gently squeeze the handle together, and glide the styler to the ends. While hair is still between the plates, wind hair around plates, hold a moment and then release. Hair will bounce back into a curl.

This product retails for $25.00, and can be purchased at!

~High quality packaging
~Sturdy flat iron
~Trendy leopard design
~Floating, ceramic plates
~Easy to use and handle
~Comes in its own travel bag

~Takes longer than 10 seconds to fully heat up

Overall, I rate this product at 4.75 out of 5 sugarcubes! Amika just let the cat out of the bag with its new Mini Ceramic Styler in Leopard Print!
