Hair-Free, Pain-Free | Yes! by Finishing Touch

There's a great feeling when you find a product that not only does exactly what it says but exceeds your expectations. I admit I completely underestimated the Yes! by Finishing Touch Hair removal device and I'm so happy to say this product has changed my life. You see I've always had hairy arms, and have hated them for most of my life. I've tried several methods, some very painful, but the hair always grew back quickly and thicker than before. I got to the point where I just accepted that there's nothing I could do about it and I'll be stuck with hairy arms all my life.....until I was introduced to the Yes! by Finishing Touch.


Based on a new and patented Sensa-Light Technology™ by Finishing Touch™, the Yes! Hair removal device is safe and gentle, and can be used on all skin types and colors without altering skin pigmentation, and can be used on the most sensitive skin. You can use this Dermatologist recommended device anywhere you have unwanted hair (that's right, all over your entire body), for a pain-free hair removal experience. Yes! should not be used in the shower, only on dry skin, the result is skin free of not only hair, but nicks, cuts, bumps and burns thanks to its Sensa-Light technology. The Sensa-Light heads lasts up to one year, depending on how much you use it.


I've heard good things about the product but nothing beats trying it out for yourself, so that's exactly what I did. For this test, I decided to use the Yes! by Finishing Touch on one arm and see what my results will be like one week later (with other methods, my arm hair grows back in full force after this duration). I was pleasantly surprised first by how incredibly smooth my arm looked, and how soft it felt. Check out the before (right arm) and after (left arm) and a closer look in the photos below


A week later, my arm still looked just as you see above, so I decided to extend it another week, two weeks later, it still looked the same, so I extended it again, this time to one month. One month later, my arm looks like what you see below (I must add that this is what my arm hair usually looked like a week after regular shaving). As you can clearly see, my arm is no where near what it was earlier. I'm so incredibly happy with the results and also happy to finally shave my other arm.


What do you think of my experience? Have you tried Yes! by Finishing Touch? Share your thoughts.

Dollars That Make a Difference: Pink Products that Support Breast Cancer Research & Awareness

As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in women and men worldwide. On a global scale, one in four cases of cancer in women is now breast cancer. By now, most people associate the pink ribbon with Breast Cancer Awareness; in fact, it’s been the official symbol since the early 90’s.


“Pink is the quintessential female color,” says Margaret Welch, director of the Color Association of the United States. “The profile on pink is playful, life-affirming. We have studies as to its calming effect, its quieting effect, its lessening of stress. [Pastel pink] is a shade known to be health-giving; that’s why we have expressions like ‘in the pink.’ You can’t say a bad thing about it.” Pink is, in other words, everything cancer notably is not. (www.thinkbeforeyoupink.org)

What you may not know is all the pink things you can put on, besides a ribbon, to support breast cancer research and awareness. According to the Estee Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, each $50.00 donation translates to approximately one hour of lifesaving cancer research. From socks and scrubs to purses and pins, you can proudly wear your support for this cause. Even your pooch can get in on the fun! Websites like The Breast Cancer Site and The Pink Ribbon Store are specifically geared towards raising money through merchandise sales year-round. Other retailers, like Macy’s and Tory Birch, develop limited-edition products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

And fellas, pink isn’t just for the ladies. Don’t forget, men can get breast cancer too. You too can shop for a cause – spiff up your suit with this bowtie, or show your support at the gym by donning a “real men wear pink” tee. Speaking of fitness, check out some of these sporty activewear and accessory options. There are lliterallythousands of products out there, some that are quite practical, that will help your dollars make a difference. We all get caught in the rain from time to time, so why not keep this umbrella handy? And what about office supplies? Everyone needs Post-Its!

While shopping for these products can be a lot of fun, don’t forget to “think before you pink” to make sure what you’re buying directly supports breast cancer research.

“The group recommends donors find out exactly what charities do with donations and whether that matches what donors want. For example…a little research might reveal that one breast cancer charity is paying for mammograms, another is funding basic research and yet another is spending little or no money on breast cancer programs. The advocacy group Breast Cancer Action has warned for years — in its Think Before You Pink campaign — that sales of some products adorned with pink ribbons raise no breast cancer money. Some proceeds from other products do go to charities. But the group says consumers should investigate those charities before buying.” (USA Today)

Pink not your thing? You can always just donate directly to a worthy cause that benefits breast cancer research and awareness. By wearing pink or sharing green, you can easily support the fight to cure breast cancer once and for all. Every dollar given, and every life affected, counts in this fight.

Always Discreet, Never Ashamed | Marilu Henner & Always Discuss Sensitive Bladders

There's an issue that seems to be very taboo among women, so much so that women prefer to suffer in silence rather than tell anyone, even loved ones don't know they suffer through this condition. That condition is sensitive bladders. Did you know that 40 million American women of all ages are affected by sensitive bladders? More than 40% over the age of 40 suffer from it but it can affect women of all ages. Many women stop participating in their favorite activities because they're afraid of accidental leakage. Always, a global leader in feminine protection with a long history of meeting the needs of women, has launched Always Discreet, a new product line for women with sensitive bladders that revolutionizes the way women manage and view their sensitive bladders.


To help celebrate with the launch, and to get women talking about what has been a taboo subject, Marilu Henner, along with some amazing lifestyle experts, Barbara Hannah Grufferman, Positive Aging Expert, Dr. Marla Shapiro, Medical Expert, and Valerie Waters, Fitness Expert and Celebrity Trainer, were on hand to introduce Always Discreet and discuss what many women hide from friends and family.


The event encouraged all to attend, in their best 80's workout outfit. That's right, it was all legwarmers, leotards and headbands, as we were in for some Dancerobics from the master herself, Marilu Henner. While we participated for a while, we had to capture great atmosphere of this fun experience.


Check out some of our amazing video below taken from the Dancerobics class with Marilu Henner:


You may be thinking, what does exercise have to do with bladder protection? A sensitive bladder affects one in every three women, ages 18 to 75 when they’re doing everyday things such as dancing, laughing, exercising or just going about their daily lives. Always Discreet introduces three products - Liners, Pads, and Underwear, which are designed to offer incredible comfort, protection and discretion, in a flattering feminine design, that absorbs leaks and odors in seconds.


The Always Discreet pads are up to 40 percent thinner than competitive brands (see above for how 6 pads stack up against other leading brands) and absorb twice as much fluid, twice as quickly, as needed. The disposable Always Discreet underwear hugs your curves, making it feel like real underwear; this discreet, easy-to-wear bladder protection product provides extra protection thanks to its Dual Leakguard barriers that helps stop leaks where they are most likely to happen.


On the new Always Discreet website, women can learn more about sensitive bladder issues and how to manage them comfortably and confidently, get tips, facts, and articles written by experts on fitness, health and aging. For women who are not quite ready to talk openly, it features an anonymous forum for women to ask experts questions and connect with other women, similar to what we had at the event.


The Always Discreet website helps you choose the Always Discreet product that best suits your needs and lifestyle as well as a free sample pack with coupon. Get the new Always Discreet liners, pads and underwear now in all major supermarkets, pharmacies and mass retailers.

What We're Loving - Maple Hill Creamery Creamline Yogurt

Maple Hill Creamery serves up yogurt that is not only great tasting, but also great for you! Their delicious Creamline Yogurt is made from organic milk from 100% grass-fed, cows. Living in a time when we barely know what we are consuming, Maple Hill Creamery is a welcome change. I was very eager to try this yogurt because the packaging is simple yet artistic and eye-catching.


When I opened the European-style yogurt, there was a layer of cream on top known as the "Creamline", hence the name of the yogurt. This cream on top of the traditionally tart, full-fat, barely-sweet, smooth yogurt, is the result of a layer of milk fat that naturally rises to the top during the yogurt's cooling and culturing process.

The cream on top is natural - just stir and enjoy!

You don't usually see this naturally occurring process in other yogurt brands, because when theirs is being processed, they remove it for aesthetic reasons.

The cream on top of the yogurt.

Once the yogurt is stirred, its ready to eat! The first thing I noticed with the first taste was the tartness. The flavor is somewhere between regular and Greek yogurt. I did not find the pungent tang to be overwhelming, although it did stand out. The vanilla flavor itself was not overpowering, which allowed every aspect of the yogurt to shine through.

Maple Hill Creamery Creamline Yogurt has a very smooth and luxurious texture that I really enjoyed. I like the distinct flavor, and can definitely taste a difference between Maple Hill Creamery and other non-organic brands. Grass-fed cows make a huge difference, not only in the meat of the cow itself, but the milk it produces as well. Maple Hill Creamery's yogurts make for  a great nutritious snack. I'm looking forward to trying their other flavors! Have you tried Maple Hill Creamery? What is your favorite flavor?

Thanks to Sears and their vast collection of affordable brands that boasts current and popular fashion trends, building an enviable wardrobe, that is still budget friendly, is easier than you think. Thanks to brands such as Metaphor, Now + Here, Bongo, Kardashian Kollection, Joe by Joe Boxer, Canyon River Blues, Champion, Everlast, and US Polo & Assn, Sears can clothe every aspect of your life.


Looking for new outerwear this fall? We suggest you begin with the Metaphor, and Covington collections for chic, classic styles, and Everlast, and US Polo & Assn for sporty outerwear styles. Spice up your fall wardrobe with the sexy silhouettes from the Kardashian Kollection, on-trend and cutting edge looks from Bongo and Now + Here, and cozy must-haves from Joe by Joe Boxer.

Sears also has us super excited about the accessories hitting the store's shelves. There's lots to catch your attention; we're especially loving the incredibly cute animal and text-printed hats (they're just so cute), the adorable owl backpacks (we're sensing a woodsland theme), as well as the chic and print-heavy range of handbags.


We were also truly impressed with the stunning jewelry pieces Sears showcased from Carole Inc and Studio S. While Carole Inc boasted edgier pieces, Studio S added modern twists and details to the classic pearl, and gold jewelry.


We shared our favorite looks, all of which are available right now. Are they any looks that catch your eye?
