Spring It On!

Spring has sprung here in North Carolina and it's just around the corner for our Northern friends. Our latest Gotta Get It! includes a few must-try products to help make an effortless transition from Winter to Spring. And, there's a shiny new giveaway too! 

sterling forever celebrity look a like jewelry
Spring on the bling! One of the things I like most about having this platform is being exposed to so many fab brands I never knew existed. Such is the case with Sterling Forever. They specialize in celebrity look-a-like sterling silver jewelry for less $$. We love how these Sterling Silver 1-1/4" Inside Out Full CZ Hoop Earrings glisten in sunlight, moonlight and candlelight and add sparkly chicness to the classic hoop earrings. Made of .925 sterling silver and cubic zirconia. $95 at sterlingforever.com.




Before you know it, you'll be relaxing on a sunny beach ~ aaah! Protect your skin from damaging rays while swimming with Lime Ricki's Rash Guard Black Dot Swim Shirt and Board Shorts Cream Dot. We love the fun polka dot design on these light and breathable fabrics. Both provide UV 50+ protection. The shirt is available in sizes XS-L for $40.50 and the shorts in sizes XS-XL for $35.50 at LimeRicki.com.



Vie Collection Night Peel

I'm in awe at the results my sister has had with glycolic peels, but they can be costly so I was delighted to receive Vie Collection's Night Peel Progressive Resurfacing Cream. This ultra light cream is actually a time-released peel enriched with two types of glycolic acids to deliver a gentle and progressive exfoliation. It also has the most beautiful delicate scent. Used nightly it evens skin tone for a brighter more luminous complexion. $187 at lespausa.com.

cozy cover mesh infant cover

Protect baby from the sun and bugs with the Sun & Bug Cover from Cozy Cover. A self-supporting canopy creates a well-ventilated enclosure of nylon mesh to keep bugs away while a breathable fold-over flap protects baby from sun, wind and rain. Backless to fit over infant carriers and carseats. Folds to fit in diaper bag or stroller. Available in Green, Pink, Orange and Blue for $13.95 at cozy-cover.com.


How precious is this Pink Giraffe Modern Day Romper from Wee Urban? Handmade in Canada using custom organic cotton blends, the soft fabric is light enough to wear in the warmer months. Long sleeves protect your wee one's skin from sun, wind and mosquitoes. Also available in green with an owl motif in sizes 0-6, 6-12 and 12-18 months. $34 at weeurban.com.



Beauty Addicts Face2Face Creme to Powder Foundation is formulated with Vitamins A, E, and Green Tea to soothe skin while providing flawless coverage that lasts through the day. Advanced Microsphere Technology smooths fine lines for a more youthful appearance. Available in 7 shades for $45 at beautyaddicts.com.



My mission to try every sugar scrub on the planet continues! Up today is Sugar Mamas Super Blend Oil Sugar Scrub in Roasted Nuts. This all-natural sugar scrub strays from my usual "bakery" scents, but it is a delightful combination of roasted chestnuts, spiced berry, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and vanilla. A warm, earthy sensual scent for sure! Even our male readers would like this one. I love the ratio of oil to sugar in this scrub too. Made in the USA, a 16-oz. jar retails for $39. Sugar Mamas also makes Sugar Scrub Bars, check them out at sugarmamasskin.com


Curl lashes without pulling them out or poking your eyes out! Leave it to Panasonic to invent a Heated Eye Lash Curler. I love Panasonic's beauty gadgets. I never travel without my battery-operated Panasonic Toothbrush and it looks like I'll be adding their Eye Lash Curler to my makeup bag. It heats lashes to make curling easy, just heat and curl lashes with the reversible rotating comb. Also great for removing mascara clumps, washes clean. Requires one AA-battery. $26.99 at shop.panasonic.com.  



And speaking of mascara, Merle Norman Wicked Lash Mascara is wicked good! An extra large brush {love} evenly coats lashes for fluttery results. The formula is rich in Peptides and Vitamin E to condition lashes while Arch Fibers add volume, length and curl. The formula allows for buildable coverage for a dramatic impact. Available at Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios for $16. For a location near you, visit merlenorman.com



After a day of hiking, shopping, or standing on your feet, soothe your tired tootsies with the Bed Buddy Foot Warmers. Scented with a delicate lavender rose fragrance, the foot warmers can be warmed in the microwave for soothing moist heat or placed in the freezer to use as a cooling compress. Also available in Lavender or Lavender and Mint. $17.99 at carex.com



If you're an in-between size or find your new clothes always need to be altered, checkout eShakti. They offer complimentary custom alterations as well as design changes and they have a pretty selection of dresses and women's clothes. Want sleeves on the Sweetheart Surplice Cotton Knit Top or a longer hemline? eShakti is happy to accommodate. This top is form fitted with a beautiful neckline and a side hidden zipper. Looks pretty with white skinny jeans and strappy sandals. Add a shimmering necklace in turquoise and you'll be ready to hit the town. $44.95 at eshakti.com



If your hair is curly or frizzy, you probably use more hair products as the humidity rises which can lead to product build-up and cause dry hair and scalp irritation. Ouidad's Superfruit Renewal Clarifying Cream Shampoo gently removes hard water minerals, residue and product build up while instantly infusing moisture. The sulfate-free cream shampoo is safe for color-treated hair and although ideal for curly hair, it can be used on all textures experiencing a loss of vibrancy and shine. An 8.5-oz bottle retails for $18 at ouidad.com
