Pretty Pout

Guess who?

Penny's back with a lip tip for all you devious divas out there. Penny's mentioned many times that dry skin and eczema are her major beauty-related nemeses. The weather during the fall and winter months wreak havoc on my skin as well my lips. The dry heat at home, the cold dry air outside, and the plethora of new lipsticks and lipglosses to try each season; all contribute to my dry, sometimes chapped and irritated lips. For years I've used Burt's Bees Natural Beeswax Lip Balm (regular; not medicated, pomegranate or honey infused) with some success. But lately I've noticed some dryness and I've experience chapped lips. So either I've gotten used to the ingredients (i.e. coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, peppermint oil, lanolin, rosemary oil, soybean oil, and canola oil) and its less effective, or I just need a little extra help these days.  (read full story...)

Pretty Paws


Many of you know Penny has a penchant for nail polish. Even with my 40+ bottles I sometimes still can't decide how to pretty my paws. *sigh*  But as with all things beauty, Penny's philosophy is that a woman can never have too many choices. So I couldn't resist sharing this great deal with you. 

On Monday, November 1st, Rescue Beauty Lounge (RBL) will be hosting a VIP 5-hour sale, from 11am-4pm, EST! Why is this exciting? Because for five hours their beautiful nail polishes will be marked down by 50%! That is $9 for what is normally an $18 bottle of gorgeous color!  [NOTE: Some restrictions apply. Shipping and Handling charges also apply].  (read full story...)

Sleek and Sexy

Penny here!

Many of you know that I have been on a mission to find the best anti-frizz product for my naturally curly hair. It has been a little easier to fight the frizz when I wear my hair curly, but more of a challenge when I go for a straight, sleek style. The method of choice at the moment is blow drying followed by a flat iron. When I want body and a chance to curl my ends a little, I opt for the wet set followed by a flat iron to the roots and half way down each section. If I blow dry, my hair tends to stay straighter and not hold a curl, even if I use a curling iron. So every once in a while I spend hours and hours with the wet set process. *sigh*

Quite a few of Penny's Posse members gave up the 'creamy crack' (chemical relaxer) and have chosen to work with their 'natural' hair texture. Some are completely chemical free...and some are like Penny...hooked on the dye bottle. LOL! But many of us have the same challenges when dealing with hair that is not chemically straightened. When the weather is humid or we perspire, it is hard to keep our hair from getting 'poofy' (yes, that is a professional term). No one likes wearing a 'hair helmet' know...where your once straight hair now has roots that lift it off your head like a helmet. Yeah...not a sexy look. LOL! (read full story...)
