Everything Old is New Again...Alberto VO5 for Hair and Body


I can remember putting VO 5 Hot Oil Treatment on my hair as a teen...to tame the mane...if you will.  Here is an updated version of their oil and I like it....Shine, Glow, and Go!  

With healthy argan and shea oils, it is not too heavy and  gives a healthy, non-greasy shine to my hair.  I can find it at Walgreen's and some of you can also find it at Kroger for about $4.99. I haven't tried it on my body yet, but I might...skin can always use nourishment.

Might be worth visiting a blast from out past in a new way!

See you tomorrow!






Keep Smiling!

Slimsation Pants and I am Hosting Fashion Flash!

Hello, from me and my shadow...walking down the avenue! It feels so great to be out in the sun...smelling the flowers...and enjoying spring.  What is even better is that I am also experiencing a great new pair of pants from SLIMSATION!
They promised a flattering, comfortable fit and they delivered.  This company has been featured on NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX.  Here is what they told me:

"SlimSation contours the waist, slims the lower tummy and shapes the hips in a plethora of silhouettes in sizes ranging from 2-24W at wallet friendly pricing.  Using a resilient fabric with great stretch and wash/wear,SlimSation allows for a comfortable “go-to” pant that can be worn from day to night. With women’s hectic daily schedules and responsibilities, having a comfortable staple pant that doesn’t sacrifice style or trend is must in today’s world."
They are lightweight and perfect for sunshine and warmer weather.  I am certain I will consider purchasing more.  Why don't you LIKE SLIMSATION ON FACEBOOK or follow them @SlimSationStyle on Twitter or even follow them on PINTEREST.  This is a great pant!





Now, it's time for FASHION FLASH...and I am the hostess!
