What if Branches could Beatbox?

Burt’s Bees knows what nature has in store for the best skin & hair on Earth. And when it comes to the Earth, they have infinite respect and gratitude for all that she has to offer. It’s the reason they compost, plant gardens, turn out the lights, and help save bees.

Every ingredient, every product launch, every tube, bottle and cap is a conversation about how to do the right thing. It’s their business model and they call it The Greater Good. As you can imagine, Earth Day is kind of their high holiday.

So, this Earth Day, Burt’s Bees collaborated with composer/genius Diego Stocco, creator of “Bassoforte”, to create a one-of-a-kind, all-natural musical experience. All the sounds in this piece were created real-time using instruments provided by Mother Nature herself. The same ingredients that are instrumental in making the Burt’s Bees products you love—Honey, rice, almonds, flowers, and more. It’s a reminder to take a few minutes on Earth Day or any other day to pause, reflect, and maybe even shake some branches or tail feathers. You know, celebrate this amazing planet we share.

Liv Tyler reveals her beauty secrets!

Liv Tyler is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful actresses out there. She has a natural beauty that most people would kill for! (Or at least spend tons of money trying to emulate!)

The face of Givenchy and Incredible Hulk star opened up about her punk rock mother and ‘impeccable’ grandmother and how they have influenced her beauty regime over the years.

In an interview with Elle, the leggy brunette told how her mother, model-turned-singer Bebe Buell, used to pin edgy skull-shaped earrings onto her dressing room wall.

‘Very Desperately Seeking Susan,’ Tyler called it.

Her etiquette-teaching grandmother however was a real treasure trove of information when it came to beauty care, Tyler revealed.

‘She taught me a lot about grooming, always smelling good, and taking extra time to care for yourself, even when you’re being natural,’ she said.

One of these lessons was how to run a white nail pencil under her nails while taking a bath to ensure the tips were kept clean and bright.

Such tiny details perhaps explain how the star always looks so effortlessly striking both in casual attire and on the red carpet.

Known for her trademark Tyler pout and thick mane of glossy hair, the actress confessed that she likes to watch the experts and pick up tips as she goes along.

When it comes to her keeping her locks healthy she admits she doesn’t try emulate her father’s approach to hair care.

‘I use a lot of conditioner – like, a whole handful – and I leave it on for a long time. It makes my hair really soft and fluffy,’ she said.

‘We have really different hairstyles,’ she continued. ‘He has a lot of things sewn into his hair, little jewels and stuff, and he likes to bend his head forward and blow it with two blow-dryers to get lots of volume in the roots, while I like to wear mine straight and flat.

‘But we’re always comparing face creams and masks – he has cupboards full of them.’

For her part, her skincare routine is indeed thorough but when she can she likes to give her skin a boost by drinking and eating well.

‘I’d love to do a juice cleanse, but it’s hard when you live in New York and have a child and a job,’ she lamented. ‘So I just try to drink a lot of fresh juices, especially cucumber, with my regular food – I feel like it makes my skin look more radiant and hydrated.’

Whatever she’s doing – she needs to keep on doing it, because it’s working! I’m going to have to steal a couple of these tricks for myself!

Swarvoski launches first fragrance Aura.

 

 

This gloss is amazing, the fruity fresh scent of lychee mixed with the stunning crystal shine and it’s incredibly long wearing. The gloss is encased in a beautiful pendant perfect to add a little sparkle to any outfit. If you are looking for something special for your mom for Mother’s Day this is it. The pendant comes ready to give in the cutest little paper box.

Aura Make Up Jewel 
The make-up jewel is set with genuine and exclusive Swarovski crystals

Crystal transforms into a luminescent make-up jewel. A texture enriched with genuine micronized “Swarovski Crystal” and iridescent Crystal Shine powder, for lips that shine with dazzling radiance. Your make-up jewel in palladium finish is set with genuine and exclusive Swarovski crystals, specially cut and faceted with the unique Swarovski expertise.

Because it is crafted from crystal and pearl, this complex has an effect on the skin that is radically different from the one obtained through classic “glitter” make-up. Here, the skin itself becomes luminescent, diffracting light in a thousand and one directions. A highly personal touch of glamour for day or evening.

Aura by Swarovski: a luminescent fragrance.

The starting point: the crystal, cut and faceted with Swarovski’s exclusive know-how, captures light, diffracts it and sheds it in a thousand and one luminous vibrations. The signature scent of Aura by Swarovski is directly inspired by this magic.

At the heart of the fragrance is a prism of energy, a fusion of amber, benzoin, and white musk. Three pure and noble olfactory vibrations become charged with energy, transforming into more intense, luminous rays of clear light.

A fruity ray with notes of juicy lychee: connecting to the prism of energy, the ray transforms into intense and rosy vibrations of sensual femininity.

A floral ray with notes of pure white tuberose: connecting to the prism of energy, the ray transforms into voluptuous vibrations of majestic femininity.

A spicy ray with notes of subtly vibrant pink pepper: connecting to the prism of energy, the ray transforms into warm and woody vibrations of mysterious femininity.

 

Aura fragrance and gloss are available at the Swarovski stores for purchase.

Disclosure: MHU was sent a sample of one of the above mentioned products to give and honest review.
