Another amazing product by Pacifica!

IMG_2013

I don’t know if you noticed or not – but I’ve kind of got a thing for Pacifica. They are leading the way to becoming my favorite beauty brand. Everything I try is better than the last! This super hydrating hand cream is to die for! It is one of a few hand creams I’ve tried that completely (and I mean completely) absorbs into your hands after using it. I don’t understand why so many hand creams don’t absorb completely. Who wants greasy hands?

Not only does this lotion FEEL amazing, but the scent is to DIE for. I put it on in the car last week – and my son said it smelled so good he wanted to eat it. I mean, c’mon. He didn’t eat it, for the record.

But the scent is delicious, and lingers. Buy this…. NOW!

Just do it. (PS: This scent comes in MANY other forms besides hand cream.)

$9

Jord watch front and back

Let me tell you a little about JORD watches, they are made from different woods from all over the world including bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, and teak. The glass is made from scratch-proof blue film glass. The best part is that each one is hand-crafted from natural materials making each one truly unique.

The watch in this post is the Delmar Series in green model. The Delmar comes in five design options at the affordable price of $149 USD.

The watch is really amazing in person and its really all made of wood. I love how unique it is and while the watches are a great size the wood makes them lighter than your average watch. The JORD watches are very wearable and a great conversation piece. These are extremely well made watches and would make a wonderful gift for dad, grad or a groomsmen gift.

To clean your JORD Watch you mix two tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice and apply the mixture to a cotton cloth and then to the watch. Jord watches are splash proof, meaning they will withstand some water being splashed from a kitchen sink, but they are not designed to be submerged in water.

If you are looking for a gift he won’t forget, head over and check out all the great wood watches available from JORD!

Melissa McCarthy turned to fashion design when she ran out of plus-size clothes she likes!

o-MELISSA-MCCARTHY-REDBOOK-570

Melissa McCarthy has revealed a long struggle with finding clothes to fit her body. She says that two years ago, she was trying to find a designer to create a gown for her, and she was rejected by several big-name designers. She quickly realized the need for more plus-size designers, and took matters into her own hands!

The comedian lands the latest cover of Redbook Magazine, and inside, she opens up about her new clothing venture.

“Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers, very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people, and they all said no.

Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible. It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.

[I] always thought I would design women’s clothing, Then [I] ended up in New York thinking I was going to go to FIT [the Fashion Institute of Technology], and I started doing standup. So how A went to B, I don’t know!

I can understand Melissa’s frustration – but honestly – I’ve never been a huge fan of her clothes. I don’t know what to expect from her line – but hopefully she’ll release some cute clothes! I’m excited to see what she does!

Gisele Bundchen lands the July cover of Elle Canada!

article-2649958-1E81371700000578-985_634x893

Gisele Bundchen lands the July 2014 issue of Elle Canada. The Brazilian supermodel opens up about her body (again) and about the World Cup which will be held in her homeland this year.

On her relationship with her body: “The body is a temple. I enjoy moving. I don’t play much volleyball anymore, but I ride horses, surf and play beach tennis. I play wherever I am. Kung fu, boxing, yoga, Pilates…. It makes me feel alive. If I don’t move my body, I don’t feel good.”

On career longevity: “People trust me when they book me for a job. The minimum I give them is 100 percent. I’ve never been late for a job, I respect people and I want to be at my best every time: to show up and deliver. When I lose that, I’ll stop. I’ve done a million photos in my life, and my excitement for it remains intact.”

On attending the World Cup in Brazil: “Well, I would like to score a goal myself. [Laughs] I’m very proud that I was born in Brazil. I love the spirit of the Brazilian people. There’s something magical about it. There’s a viva—there is joy. There is warmth—a sense of welcome. When I first came to America, I was hugging and kissing everyone and people were shocked. Soccer supporters will come from different parts of the world, and they will experience that side of Brazilian life—all that beauty and energy.”

Below is a picture she posted on her Instagram page recently. I suppose if I had her body, I wouldn’t shut up about it either. :)
