Cuticles are something you don't really notice until it's too late. You look down one day, and they're looking decent, but the next day they're in shambles. I don't quite understand how cuticles can take such a drastic downturn so quickly, but they do.
Sure, a good nail and hand care routine can avoid such situations, but let's have an honest moment and admit that we don't always follow such routines to a tee all the time; now do we? DO we? No. That's why it's a good idea to have a blockbuster product waiting in the wings to snap your cuticles back into fighting form in as little time as possible. For me, that product has been CND Special Edition Solar Oil.

Yesterday, when I was planning what I would post today, I decided that since the weather was finally getting a bit warmer it was the perfect time to review the very Summer appropriate Beyonce Heat Rush. Of course, when I awoke this morning it was cold, rainy and grey. Boo. Of course there is the upside that after the rain comes the flowers and not far behind them are the hot, sunny days when I'll be reaching for this great little scent. Read on!
In case you didn't know, today, April 22nd, is Earth Day. To celebrate, Yves Rocher is plating one tree for every product purchased today whether it be an in-store purchase, phone, or online order. Since 2011 Yves Rocher has been able to plant 500, 000 trees through this initiative in addition to their Plant for the Planet Foundation that has planted 30 million trees worldwide since 2007, which plan on planting 50 million by 2015. That's a whole lot of trees. If you'd like to help them with their planting, but need a little help filling your basket, I've selected a few of my top Yves Rocher picks after the jump. Read on!

It's hard to believe now, but there was a time, not that long ago, when beauty subscription services were the new thing. One of the first to specialize in one specific product was Julep, as I'm sure everyone knows, that specialize in nail polish and nail care items. I've been a Maven- they call their subscribers Mavens- since the beginning, but haven't blogged about them for some time. Time to change that! Read on for a Maven overview and swatches of some It Girl shades.

I don't know about you, but I tend to get just a little bit too excited when The Body Shop adds a new scent to their body butter/ scrub line up. Especially when I got word the newest scent was going to raspberry. While I haven't had any raspberry body items as of late, it was my signature scent for a while. I even kept a pot of raspberry hand cream in my pencil case at school. It was mostly there for a boredom cure, but the scent was pretty amazing. Anyway, I was excited to see how The Body Shop would approach raspberry and I have to say they have outdone themselves with their limited-edition Early-Harvest Raspberry line. Read on for all the details!
