LuShae Jewelry

It isn't a big secret that I love a good piece of jewelry, I am a predictable girl in that sense. Needless to say, when Sarah from LuShae Jewelry told me that I was privy to a free piece of jewelry so that I could review the purchasing process from start to finish, I was besides myself with giddiness! Earrings, necklaces, rings, OH MY!

I rapidly perused their site and had a very difficult time deciding which little treat I was going to make mine. For a good solid chunk of time I was set on bringing home a beautiful pair of earrings, seriously they were so cute! But ultimately I decided on this versatile ring. The site was very easy to navigate and even easier to place an order on. I did however have some trouble seeing some of the details of the jewelry because everything was up against a white background, but this could be my wonky eyes. It might be nice to have the jewelry pictured on models so the shopper could get a good feel for how the jewelry looks on. But other than those things, the sight was rock solid.

My ring was delivered to me quickly, which is a good thing, don't make this girl wait for her jewelry. Just don't. My ring also came in a really cute blue box that made it feel like I was giving myself a gift, "oh self you shouldn't have"
The ring is great quality and I feel confident wearing it during the day and when I go out at night. My experience with LuShae Jewelry was nothing but enjoyable!

Random number between 1 and 102

i am always on the lookout for the perfect lotion. i have a thyroid disease and so my skin is "winter dry" all year round. sometimes it gets so dry i get scaly little patches in the most inappropriate places (like on my face you sickos) so it's really important for me to have a lotion that moisturizes beneath the top layer of skin.

i always put lotion (or oil) on directly out of the shower and then before bed, and multiple times throughout the day; i put lotion on whenever i notice drying or cracking. my husband is annoyed with the abundance of lotion bottles in the car, on my night stand, in the bathroom, in the living room, etc. but until i find a lotion that can keep up with my needs you will find a bottle everywhere you look in my house.

(ooh, i love that Skin MD is unscented!)

and to carly ^^ my pup is forever licking lotion off of me too. that can't be healthy, eh?

Skin MD Natural Lotion

I was contacted by a rep from Natural Skin Care Products a couple of weeks ago and he wanted to know if I would be interested in testing their Skin MD Natural Lotion. Well it took me about two seconds before I replied with "heck yes I am a lotion junkie!" And that is the honest truth, I am always looking for a new lotion to try. I carry a bottle in my purse, put some on after a shower, after I wash my hands 'cause gah soap is so drying, and I need to apply lotion before I read (seriously) because I can't stand the feel of dry pages on dry hands. Get the picture? I get cranky if my skin feels dry. An odd pet peeve but very real.

My bottle of Skin MD natural lotion arrived and I ripped into the box and pulled out the bottle and instantly slathered some on because oye, that whole box ripping interlude made my hands feel dry. I was instantley taken aback by the fact that the lotion was really thin. I'm not going to lie, I found the thinness of the lotion disconcerting at first. I am accustomed to lotion that leaves me feeling so slathered that I feel as though I could slither my way through a key hole if need be.

But as I used the lotion for the next couple days I began to love the feel of the lotion on my skin, I no longer felt like a buttered turkey, the lotion felt like it was part of my skin and my skin in turn felt silky. I was in love. I then inspected the bottle to see what exactly I was falling in love with and was pleased as punch to see that I could not only pronounce the ingredients, but I was familiar with them, like take for example aloe-yeah friendly little fix all, aloe is in the lotion. Ok ok, I am gushing I will stop, after this one more thing, it doesn't have a scent, which is awesome because I don't have to worry about my lotion and perfume scent clashing.

Sigh, its love.

And guess what? You can win your own bottle of this awesome lotion! Just leave a comment below with your odd lotion applying habits (like how I must apply lotion before reading books etc) or other ways in which you care for your skin that might be out of the ordinary. I will post a winner next Monday February 15th!
