TJ Maxx Blazing a New Trail in Social Media

The future for fashion and lifestyle bloggers just got a little brighter thanks to TJ Maxx who is setting more than just fashion trends these days. For years brands have looked to influential bloggers to spread the word about their products, now TJ Maxx has taken the power of social media a step further.

As the first retailer to feature a blogger in a national television commercial, TJ Maxx understands that consumers relate to "real-life" spokespersons. Not to imply blogger Lindsey Calla, aka Saucy Glossie, is "average-looking", Lindsey is stunning and looks as though she just stepped out of a fashion magazine. Still, kudos to TJ Maxx for recognizing the value of the brand-blogger relationship. 

I'm certain we'll see other retailers follow TJ Maxx's lead. Congratulations, Lindsey, and best wishes for success to you and TJ Maxx on this fabulous campaign.

Inspired Home Soy Candle Review

For as long as I can remember I've been in awe of the talent and creativity of artists who specialize in more than one medium. Catherine Powers, creator of Inspired Home, is one of those individuals. I've known a few artists, a couple of candle makers, many writers, maybe even a poet, but I never met someone who is all of the above...until now. Catherine's talent appears limitless. I connected with Catherine on Twitter and she sent me two of her hand poured, made in America, soy candles to review.

Let me start by admitting I am VERY picky about candles. I've tried hundreds of different brands and have found very few with which I am thrilled. If there is a hint of a wax scent, if the fragrance doesn't permeate the room, if it doesn't burn evenly and cleanly or if I don't love the aroma, it will wind up in the "save for power outages" candle pile. (If you're in North Carolina and the lights go out, you know where to go for candles).

Each Inspired Home Candle arrives in a luxury gift box which is as beautiful as the candle itself. One glance and you know Inspired Home uses only the finest materials. The candle is hand poured in a frosted glass tumbler with a lead-free cotton wick. The first candle I tried was Pink Grapefruit. It has a clean, refreshing, citrus aroma that is light, relaxing and HEAVENLY. I burned the candle for one hour and it scented the entire downstairs of my home.

Inspired Home Pink Grapefruit Candle $48

The next scent I tried was Lemon Fig which has a captivating and refreshingly vibrant fragrance. My home smells INCREDIBLE! All of Inspired Home's scents sound fantastic and I'm sure all are equally delightful. 

My feeling is you can never have too many quality candles. They are the perfect little luxury to relax, scent a room, and add a cozy or romantic atmosphere, and Inspired Home candles are among the best I've ever tried. These candles are the perfect gift idea for friends, family, hostesses, housewarming, birthdays, anniversaries, clients and co-workers.

Speaking of holiday giving, through October 31, save 38% on a set of three 7-ounce Cranberry Candles. The set of three is $89 (regularly $48 each).

Treat yourself of someone you love to a chic luxury this holiday season and shop Inspired Home for beautiful artwork, candles and poetry. Be sure to connect with Catherine on FacebookTwitter, and sign up for Inspired Home's newsletter for special offers.

Thank you Catherine for sharing your talent with the world and for allowing me to try your delicious candles. xox

Postscript ~ Catherine has offered to sponsor a giveaway for TWO very lucky Chic Luxuries readers ~ watch for it in the coming weeks.

AvonDreamers ~ A Unique Fundraising Opportunity

If your school, daycare, sports team, organization or non-profit is looking for unique fundraising options, consider a fundraiser that features best-selling products from a popular trusted brand. Maria Tirotta, Senior Executive Unit Leader with Avon Products, offers 25% commission on fundraising sales through her website

I recently asked Maria what makes an Avon Fundraiser more successful than typical school fundraisers. "Everyone needs shampoo, deoderant, shower gel and our prices can't be beat. Supporters of the individual organizations enjoy helping raise funds for their cause by purchasing products that they use everyday. It saves them a trip to the grocery store and they are helping their favorite charity in the's a win-win! Avon has something for everyone on your gift list products, men's fragrances, toys, decorative accessories, jewelry, fashion, skincare, daily needs...." 

The fundraisers, which are promoted by the individual organizations or non-profits, run for one week. Maria also includes a Gift with Purchase offer for each Fundraiser and there are free shipping codes available as well. There is absolutely no cost to the organization to hold a fundraiser and no door-to-door selling (I can hear parents across the country cheering already!).

Maria is filling up the calendar with holiday fundraisers, Email her today to reserve a date.

Keep up with Maria on Facebook and Twitter and be sure to stop by her website.

Bel Mondo Beauty ~ Review and Giveaway

I am one LUCKY girl and so is a Chic Luxuries reader! The marvelous folks at Bel Mondo Beauty sent me their Bio Cellulose Masks to try and with just one look at the chic packaging and gift box, I knew I was in for a luxurious treat.

"These Anti-Aging masks are infused with a rich mix of skin conditioning and firming ingredients clinically proven to stimulate collagen production and smooth skin surface. Used weekly, these masks will help restore and seal moisture, reduce inflammation, and lessen the appearance of fine lines." Sign me up!

There is absolutely no mess, no dripping, no cleanup with these masks. I'm actually wearing one while typing this post! The mask is saturated with moisturizing ingredients and once smoothed, completely adhered to my skin. The mask has a cooling sensation (wonderful after a day at the pool) doesn't tighten or crack and is removable in one piece, with no washing or peeling required. The mask has a light perfume fragrance and is suitable for all skin types (I have fairly sensitive skin and had no adverse reaction).

I love the portability of these masks, the thin foil packet slips easily into a suitcase or handbag. I think every business (and pleasure) traveler should pack at least one in their suitcase to help relax, infuse moisture lost while traveling, and de-puff! I took one along on a trip to Florida last week and after a 14-hour train ride, was so thankful I did. It was delightfully cool and refreshing after a day in the sun. 

While we all may want to visit the spa every week for a facial, for many of us that's just not possible. With Bel Mondo Beauty masks, you can treat yourself to a luxurious spa experience at home. Light a few candles, put on some soft music, fill the bath with bubbles and enjoy the benefits of a moisture-boost facial in the comfort of your home. 

Bel Mondo Beauty masks retail for $22 each or $90 for a box of five. At first, I thought that was pricey for a mask, however, after trying it, I see the value. This is definitely not your typical facial mask, it really is a luxurious spa experience that provides noticeable results. Considering the average cost of a facial is $85, I like the option of getting similar benefits at home with a Bio Cellulose mask for $22. 

Now for the lucky reader I mentioned earlier. Bel Mondo Beauty has offered to giveaway a box of five masks to one Chic Luxuries reader (ARV: $90). 

To enter, leave a comment below letting us know you completed one or both of the following:

Bonus entries available (please leave a comment for each) ~

Good luck to all and a very special thanks to Bel Mondo Beauty for allowing me to try their fabulous masks and for this awesome giveaway. xox

Juice Beauty's Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment ~ Review

I heard some chatter on twitter about Juice Beauty which piqued my curiosity. I had never tried their products but wanted to see for myself if what was being said was true, so I contacted them and they couldn't have been nicer. They graciously sent me their Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment to test.
The product claims to aggressively firm and eliminate dark circles and fine lines around the eyes. Those are mighty big words to live up to, I thought. I rub my eyes a lot because of allergies and consequently have had dark circles for years. Oh and the wrinkles...yep, lots of them! I couldn't wait to put this product to the test, I've used it twice daily for two weeks.  

Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment is loaded with antioxidant-rich fruit juices and plant oils to hydrate skin. I love that I can actually recognize the ingredient list of this all-natural product. The consistency is a light almost translucent cream that has no discernible scent and it quickly absorbed into my skin without being greasy or sticky. It DEFINITELY smoothed my wrinkles and made them less noticeable throughout the day. My dark circles also appear lighter since I began using it. Seriously good stuff!

Equally wonderful as the product is the unique applicator. One pump dispensed enough product for both eyes. The angled applicator ensures that the product is smoothed gently over the delicate eye area without applying too much pressure. 

I cannot wait to try Juice Beauty's Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer and Serum.

Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment retails for $45. You can also find Juice Beauty on Twitter and connect with them on Facebook.

Thank you, Juice Beauty, for allowing me to try your fantastic product. Keep up the great work! xox

Sheer Cover Review

As I was leaving for a trip last week, this trial size Sheer Cover Makeover in a Box arrived. I was excited to try the products after seeing the infomercials and Leeza Gibbons' flawless skin so into the suitcase it went.

I have never used a primer. I like that the Sheer Cover primer keeps powder from settling into fine lines which can often accentuate them. Sheer Cover Base Perfector Primer includes Vitamin A, E, Green Tea, Cucumber and Marine Extracts.

I love that the Duo Concealer is just that ~ two concealers. So often concealers are either too light or too dark for my complexion. These concealers can be blended together for the perfect shade. I mixed Light and Medium and they did a good job of covering up my imperfections.
The Mineral Foundation SPF15 is a "unique 4-in-1 formulation that acts as sun protection (love that), anti-aging protection (love that more), foundation and finishing powder". Any product that combines products/steps receives high marks with me. I received two shades of foundations as well. Particularly neat was the mixing well that was included so that the two shades can be easily blended...again to create a custom color.

In addition to the Primer, Concealer and Mineral Foundation Powders, the 6-piece 30-day Sheer Cover Starter Kit also includes the following:
  • Bronzing Tan Minerals
  • Studio Foundation Brush
  • Studio Concealer Brush
  • Ultimate Makeover Kit
  • Extra Length Mineral Mascara
The Sheer Cover 30-Day Starter Kit is available in Light, Medium, Tan or Dark for $29.95 plus FREE shipping and comes with a 60-Day Money Back Guarantee. I can't think of any department store that would allow you to use makeup for 60-days and then return it. A 90-day 8-piece Deluxe Kit is also available for $36.65 and includes all of the above PLUS a Nourishing Moisturizer and Conditioning Cleanser. 

The wonderful folks at Guthy-Renker mentioned sending some products for a giveaway for a lucky Chic Luxuries reader so stay tuned!

OKA b. Shoes Review

Before discovering OKA b. shoes, I had the hardest time finding comfortable sandals that were fashionable. I now have five pair of OKA b.'s, a few of which I wear almost year-round. The latest pair in my collection is the Malia which the company sent me to try. Aren't they beautiful?

I adore the pretty metal flowers with crystal studs that give them that extra touch of chicness. The neutral copper color goes with so many outfits and looks great with a pair of jeans. All of their shoes arrive in a lovely ivory organza pouch which is perfect for travel. The Malia retails for $35.

The reason OKA b.'s are so comfortable is because all of their shoes have an ergonomic footbed enhanced with massage beads to pamper the feet with each step. Aaaaah! Aside from OKA b.'s being fantastically comfy, they are machine washable, non-slip odor-resistant, made in the U.S.A., and every pair comes a 2-year warranty against defects!

You can never have too many OKA b's...

Connect with OKA b. on Facebook and Twitter (psst...they've been known to give away shoes every now and then to their loyal followers). Be sure to checkout the awesome selection of colors and styles they offer at and receive FREE shipping with a $70 purchase. Give them a try and see for yourself what a difference they make on your feet and legs at the end of the day ~ you will be thrilled you did. 

I could sum up this post in three words LOVE LOVE LOVE. Thank you OKA b. for making chic and super comfy shoes and for my newest fav, the very stylish Malia. xox

Miraclebody Jeans Review

My latest crush is Miraclebody jeans by the company who makes the Miraclesuit (the only swimsuit I would dare to be seen in). Like the swimsuit, Miraclebody jeans claim their jeans will make you look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 fact, they guarantee it! I don't know about you, but I'm all about anything that will make me look thinner.  

Miraclebody sent me their Samantha Tidal Wave Boot-Cut Jeans to try.

I was unsure as to what size to select because I typically order a larger size for the Miraclesuit than I normally wear. After measuring my waist and hips, I used their sizing chart as a guide to order. These jeans are super soft and comfortable, have a little bit of stretch to them, which I prefer in jeans, and fit perfectly! The Riverwash color is a lovely shade of blue and goes with just about every top in my closet.

The Samantha jeans sit midrise on the hips and I especially like that they are cut higher in the back. I'm also a big fan of the boot-cut style, these have just the right amount of flair. There is a fun and flirty embroidered wave design in a champagne color accented with tiny gray granite beads on the pockets; and the design is positioned on the back pocket to give the illusion of a slender backside.

I put these to the test and wore them to lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in a few weeks. I haven't lost any lbs. since the last time we were together. She said "You look great" although she says that all the time. I thought "hmmm, I guess I'm only imagining I look 10 lbs. lighter". As we were standing in line waiting for a table she asked "How much weight did you lose?". Yayaay!! We're now both referring to Miraclebody jeans as My happy jeans.

Miraclebody's Samantha Tidal Wave Jeans retail for $128. Looking 10 lbs. lighter without dieting or exercising?...PRICELESS!

Follow Miraclebody Jeans on Facebook and Twitter for info on new products, specials, events and contests. And if you want to look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 sure to get yourself a pair!

Thank you Miraclebody and Miraclesuit for making gorgeous clothing that help women look their best and for sending these beautiful Samanta Tidal Wave Jeans. I can't wait to see what you design next! xox

Poo~Pourri Review, Special Offer & Giveaway Alert

You just have to love a company that has a great sense of humor and with products like Heavy Doody, Crap Shooter, and Lil' Stinker, clearly the folks at Poo~Pourri definitely "doo"!

Poo-Pourri sent me some of their newest as well as best-selling products to review. I first learned of this company from a friend who carries the line in her boutique. I hadn't tried the products but wondered how they could possibly eliminate odors by "spritzing the bowl before you go"?

I tested Poo-Pourri's original spritz bathroom freshener. The bottle design is adorable and is decorated with a stretchy band that fits around the bottle neck with a dangling silvertone "P" initial charm. It has a light, refreshing, citrus scent and, as the product claims, amazingly with just one spritz eliminates embarrassing odors entirely. It's not that the odors are covered up with a heavy scent, they literally just vanish...poof...gone. "The product's essential oils create a film barrier on the water's surface to stop odor at its source"...GENIUS! A 4-oz. Spritz bottle retails for $14.95 and since a spritz is all that is needed, one bottle will last for up to 200 uses. 

Next, I tested OH! MY GOODNESS Slap Happy Natural Anti-Aging Hand Cream with UV Protection. Another clever idea to put UV protection in hand products. This has a very light and pleasant scent, it quickly absorbed into my skin and was not greasy. I love that the line is all natural...the hand cream contains shea butter, vitamin E, aloe vera, and watermelon extract. Available in two sizes, 2-oz. for $6.50 and 8-oz. for $19.95 retail.

One of the newest additions to the Poo~Pourri line of bathroom sprays is Crap Shooter! Another cute label decorates this bottle, this one with a cowgirl and a silver boot charm hanging from a rope around the bottle's neck. These are some of the most creative products ever designed. The slogan on this bottle reads "Spray the bowl first, guns a blazing, the smell is contained, this stuff is amazing"! :) Crap Shooter contains an infusion of Cassis, Citrus Peel and Fir and like Poo~Pourri's original scent, knocked out odors with a single spritz...POW POW! Crap Shooter retails for $14.95 for a 4-oz. bottle (up to 200 uses).

All Poo~Pourri's bathroom sprays are safe for sewer systems and septic tanks. Those with a sensitive sense of smell, like me, would agree Poo~Pourri's bathroom fresheners should be in every home and office. They even make purse sprays!

Poo~Pourri is extending a 20% discount to Chic Luxuries readers, simply enter code LUX20 at checkout. And be sure to keep an eye out here in October to learn about some of their other wonderful products and to enter to win a Chic Giftset that Poo~Pourri will be sending to one Chic Luxuries reader.

Low Country Luxe Candle Giveaway

I've been a fan of Low Country Luxe for a few years ever since meeting the owner in a business networking group. The company recently created room sprays and reed diffusers for HSN which were inspired by the movie The Help. The products sold out the weekend they debuted on HSN and led to the creation of a limited edition line of candles which are being offered exclusively to the company's Facebook fans. These Soy Candles are available in three scents ~ 

Mississippi Magnolia ~ A floral blend of the Southern magnolia, sweet vanilla and oakwood over soft Gardenia blossoms. 

Livin in High Cotton ~ An uplifting citrus combination of lemon, lime and grapefruit bouquet of white florals.

Southern Spanish Moss ~ Warmth of amber and woods combined with sweet apricot nectar and an infusion of vanilla and earthy mosses. 

These perfumed 7-oz. soy candles are hand-poured in a vintage medallion holder and arrive gift boxed. These limited edition candles are available only while supplies last for $35 each including shipping and handling.  To order, telephone Low Country Luxe at 912.898.2147 and mention code "You are Good" to receive the special pricing offer.

I'm excited to announce the lovely ladies at Low Country Luxe are graciously giving away two of these luxurious candles to a lucky Chic Luxuries reader (ARV: $70).

Does Your Makeup Disappear During the Day?

If your makeup doesn't last through the work day, it could be because it is being applied too soon after moisturizing. Allow moisturizer to soak into skin for ten minutes before applying makeup. This way skin drinks in the moisturizer without absorbing the makeup.  

Also, if your skin doesn't quickly "drink in" moisturizers and you find the product is just "sitting" on the top layer of your skin, it's time to exfoliate. 

Be sure to clean all makeup brushes once a week in a mild handsoap or shampoo to keep skin clear.  Brushes that contain makeup and product buildup are not only a breeding ground for bacteria, but they can actually scratch skin. Makeup will also glide on easier with a clean brush. 

To clean brushes:

  • Rinse in warm water with bristles pointing down
  • Squirt a drop of mild soap in your palm and swish the brush around, rinse (with bristles pointing down) until water runs clear
  • Lay flat to dry on paper towels, reshape if necessary

AvonDreamers ~ Fav Chic Luxuries Giveaway

Avon's Senior Executive Unit Leader, Maria Tirotta, recently asked me what my three favorite Avon products are and having worked for Avon for 10 years, it didn't take me more than a second to answer.

My first fav product is Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield, $12. I have naturally curly hair and this does a great job at smoothing it and keeping the frizzies at bay.

Next is Glow Baby Glow Lip Gloss from the mark. line $6, which I wear almost everyday.  Even if you're not carrying a handbag, it's small enough to fit in a jeans pocket.  It glides on smoothly, has a convenient applicator unique for its size and comes in a variety of colors and variations. Below I'm wearing the color "Rush". 

Third is Avon's Eye Makeup Remover.  This is by far THE best eye makeup remover on the market and the price is unbeatable. I have spent at least twice as much for other eye makeup removers that are not nearly as effective. Regularly $4.00 ~ I just ordered it last week for 99 cents!

Maria is offering Chic Luxuries readers these stunning CZ Earrings (a $20 value) with any $15 purchase from her website through September 30. To receive earrings, send an email by September 30 with your order number, name and address and "Chic Luxuries" in the subject line.  Earrings will ship separately from your order.

Now for the Giveaway! Maria is also giving away all four products featured in this post to one Chic Luxuries reader (ARV: $42).  To enter leave a comment below letting us know you have completed any or all of the following.

Disney ~ A Magical Luxury

Tinkerbell must have sprinkled some pixie dust my way because Disney recently sent me a $200 Rewards Card for opening a credit card account and making a first purchase using the card...Sweet! I had read about Disney's new fragrance line and wanted to try it...

Disney's Magic Fragrance Line. (Photo Credit Stuart Ramson)
Disney's Imagination Fragrance line (Photo Credit Stuart Ramson)

I ordered the Magic handwash ($12.50) and two Magic candles ($19.50 each).  The scent is a scrumptious blend of icy blue mint, rich chocolate and sea spray.  The candle and handwash is perfect in the kitchen or guest bath or as a gift for the Disney collector in your life. I'm using both products in the kitchen. The candle, which arrives in a beautiful gift box, burns evenly and softly scents the room. I especially like the handwash, it lathers well and does a good job at removing food odors. 

I will be ordering the Imagination fragrance and Disney's newest fragrance, Pixie Dust, set to launch this Fall. Since we love sharing the magic around here too, look for the Magic candle in our next Beauty Bundle Giveaway! Thanks Disney for the great rewards program. Wishing everyone a day filled with magical surprises.

Victoria's Secret ~ Almost Free Luxuries

A few weeks ago I received two gift cards from Victoria's Secret.  One was for $10 off any purchase and the other for a free pair of panties. Victoria's Secret sends these gift cards periodically during the year to their customers. If you sign up for their mailing list and request a catalog, you should receive one around the holidays. They also send a $10 gift card to customers on their birthday each year. ♥

I've been wanting to try their Beauty Rush Lip Glosses.  I purchased "Taffy Go Lucky" and "Strawberry Fizz".  They are high-shine, non-sticky, and have a longer staying power than most lip glosses, and... they taste delicious!! Taffy Go Lucky tastes just like bubblegum! Every purchase comes in their signature glossy pink-striped gift bags with coordinating tissue...very chic! Beauty Rush Lip Glosses retail for $7 each or two for $14.  With my $10 gift card, I paid $2.14 for two lip glosses!!

This week I received a Happy Birthday gift card for another $10 off any purchase. I will be returning to purchase two more lip glosses...look for one in our next Chic Beauty Bundle Giveaway coming soon.

I love a company that gives back to its customers!  Thank you Victoria's Secret for always remembering and caring about your customers. ♥
