Carmen Electra teaches us How to be Sexy

Everyone has what it takes to be sexy. Let go of those inhibitions and insecurities and allow Carmen Electra take you from ho-hum to hot.Millions have experienced Carmen Electra’s vivacious charm and drop-dead sex appeal from afar--from her roles on Baywatch and MTV’s Singled Out, to her dozens of movie and television appearances, to her wildly popular Aerobic Striptease videos. Now, in How to Be Sexy, she shows you that even if you weren’t born with an alluring aura (or killer curves), you can learn how to be super sexy. Carmen explains that sexiness starts with confidence, personality, and a willingness to laugh at yourself, so your inner glow will radiate outward and make the world sit up and take notice. Then she reveals the tricks of the trade for upgrading your appearance, with step-by-step instructions for hair styling and makeup application, and choosing fashion that flatters – including tips and techniques from some of the most talented stylists, makeup artists, and coaches in Hollywood. Finally, she shows you how to strut your stuff with chapters on body language and the lost art of seduction.

Hmmm. Don't know if I wanna take how to be sexy advice from Carmen. Maybe if Beyonce, Sanaa Lathan or Eva Longoria wrote it I would not be so reluctant.

Stop smoking, Lose weight & Attract a man with Joey New York

Here's the scoop: A friend of mine contacted me about lsome lip gloss and lip balm products by Joey NY Specialty that she heard about on the Wendy Williams Show (New York) that helps you to stop smoking, lose weight AND - attract a man. Sounds crazy right? I bet you are thinking the same thing as I am - How can cosmetics make you do all of those things? Well here's how it works: It is a proven fact that men are attracted to the aromas of cinnamon and vanilla. These lip products contain a blend of cinnamon and vanilla fragrances that when applied to the lips, the irresistible aroma will get his attention! Contains Maxi-Lip and Dermaxyl-safe clinically proven ingredients to firm and plump the lips.

Hmmm. I don't know about that. I don't think attracting a man is that easy. I sniffed some cinnamon and it did nothing for my hormones. Then again - I am not a man.

So what if you don't need a man, but you do need to lose some of that "winter weight" that won't go away - Joey NY has a product for that also: The LipFit Lipstick. This lipstick contains a proprietary blend of peppermint, grapefruit and spearmint fragrances. When applied to the lips, the fresh minty aroma has proven to safely inhibit appetite. These lip products also contain Maxi-Lip and Dermaxyl-safe, clinically proven ingredients to firm and plump the lips instantly.

So there you have it. No more long hours in the gym, and no more worrying about attracting men. All you need is to buy some CinnaMan & Lipfit lipstick and it will take care of all your problems. Who knew??

Carols Daughter Browning Oil

With all the work that I have been doing lately, its only right that I talk about my preparation for my trip to Vegas. There are only 3 weeks left and I am sooo excited. I need this vacation so bad, because I have not been on a vacation since I went to Atlanta to do PR work for the BET Hip Hop Awards. Really - that was not a vacation, it was alot of work.
So anyway, I have been getting my list of beauty products together and one thing that I noticed is that I do not have a good body bronzer. I have a great face bronzer, but none for my body. Since I am a black woman, its even harder for me to find the right tanner/bronzer to make my skin look even and glowing, without looking burned or orangy (if that's a word).
I looked around for some recommendations and I found something that I might like to try - its called Gelee de Soleil Browning Oil by Carol's Daughter. In their quest for the ultimate in summer skin care and an alternative to over-the-counter tanning products, Carol's Daughter created Gelee de Soleil. Sweet almond oil, virgin coconut oil, cocoa butter, mango butter, shea butter and toasted palm kernel are some of the key ingredients in this oh-so-good-for-your-skin blend. For years this has been a CD lovers best kept secret, known for its essential moisturizing properties. Get in the know and use this 'browning oil' in conjunction with sunscreen to bronze and hydrate your body. The Ingredients in the oil are: Sweet almond oil, virgin coconut oil, corn oil, soy oil, coconut oil, wheat germ oil, cocoa butter, mango butter, toasted palm kernel oil, shea butter, and fragrance oil. Sounds great to me - I think I am going to pick up a bottle. You can get one too: for $14.00. Let me know what you think!

Pastry Sneakers

I'm sorry guys for not posting anything in a while. Life has gotten so hectic for me these past couple of weeks as I continue my quest into PR. For those of you who reached out to me about BJ Coleman - thank you! I appreciate your comments. Unfortunately, I have not heard back from him since then, but its okay because I will be keeping in contact him even if I don't get the PR job. I have some really cool ideas that I am going to continue to reach out to him about so he has not heard the last of me. (hehe) Speaking of Mr. Coleman, lately I've noticed that I have an obsession with the whole Simmons family. I watch Run's house over and over again - even the reruns. Whats scary is - I watch the reruns like I've never seen the episode before. I wish that my family was like that - just to be filthy rich and can be sure that any dream that I have, I can do it because my family has built an empire and so that means I can do whatever I want. So anyway, you all know that Vanessa and Angela have come out with their own line of shoes called Pastry (I posted this news before). I have been researching to find out where you can buy the shoes because they are really hot!! They kind of remind me of Nike Air Max's without the stiff pricetag. I love them. I finally found some at a local Underground Station store here in Columbus and you better believe I am going to buy me a pair. For $65 I might buy two. I am thinking of purchasing the Sprinkle shoe and the Brown/Pink Cake Runners. You should grab a pair too!
