WINNERS: John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour

Congrats to our winners Michelle and Luly, please watch your inbox!

I had the opportunity to try the new John Frieda Precision Foam Colour and I love it. The foam is so easy to apply and you don’t have the drip issue the foam made it really easy to work through all my hair. I wish I could share the before and after pics but I was in a rush when I colored to make a pedicure appt. That being said its so quick and easy I was able to color my hair, shower and be made up and out the door in 40 minutes.

This product is so amazing I wanted our readers to be able to try it as well. Our awesome rep has 2  to giveaway to our MakeHerUp readers, see below for the contest.

John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour.

Easy to apply, the non-aerosol foam formula spreads evenly through hair, saturating every strand completely—even the back of the head, roots and hairline. The 20-shade palette collection was developed in conjunction with the John Frieda® Creative Colour Director, and sought-after U.K. colourist, Nicola Clarke, who is responsible for some of the most iconic hair colours in Hollywood. With an array of options for blondes, brunettes and redheads, the collection brings a salon shade spectrum home. No mess, no drips, no stains—just gorgeous hair from every angle. The revolutionary colour even provides 100% grey coverage and vibrant shine with long-lasting results, offering salon precision at home.

HOW TO USE: Squeeze the center of the bottle to dispense foam into a gloved hand and apply directly to hair. Simply massage foam into hair with fingertips to thoroughly cover each strand from root to tip. The foam easily coats even the most hard-to-reach areas, including the back of the head. Let stand for 20 minutes (30 minute for grey coverage) and rinse with lukewarm water until water runs clear. Apply conditioner and leave in for 2-5 minutes before rinsing.
WHAT IT COSTS: $12.99
WHERE TO FIND IT: Food, drug and mass retailers nationwide

Introducing Elizabeth Arden’s Two New Summer Scents!

I’m absolutely in love with Elizabeth Arden’s NEW summer scents! I’ve tried the Green Tea Camellia, and it’s amazing. I don’t know how they do it, but it just smells like summer! Beautiful scent, I can’t wait to try the other one – Green Tea Lavender!

Fragrance can be sentimental, individualistic, sensual, floral and can depend on trends, moods and even weather! Elizabeth Arden has taken all characteristics of what encompasses a beautiful scent and its essence to create two new Green Tea inspired scents.

The Green Tea family is a euphoric blend of the most refreshing, rejuvenating scents that surround you in a burst of clean, crisp energy. Light fragrances, with a touch of freshness and rejuvenation, are the perfect scents when transferring from cold winter days to hot summer evenings. Elizabeth Arden introduces Green Tea Camellia and Green Tea Lavender, two new summer aromas. The weather is changing, and your fragrance choice should too!

Inspired by Ikebana, the ancient art of Japanese flower arrangement, Green Tea Camellia is a luxurious fragrance revealing the delicate grace of a single perfect blossom as it unfolds petal by petal. Its delicate fragrance combines peony, rose and mandarin tree blossom notes giving you the perfect fragrance for Summer. This scent is an intriguing floral scent and provides a delicate and graceful feel.

Green Tea Lavender has one of the highest quality certified organic essential oils available, Givaudan’s Organic Lavender from Bulgaria. The organic lavender used in this fragrance possesses a unique character with a very rich aromatic almost ambery note. Winter symbolizes cold, gray weather – Summer on the hand is about freshness, blue skies etc. Green Tea Lavender is the perfect scent to exude a relaxed, carefree feel. Providing both a relaxing warmth and an uplifting freshness.

Green Tea Lavender is the perfect blend of Wild Chamomile, Green Tea, Organic Lavender Bulgarian ORPUR™ and Chinese Magnolia.

Pricing & Availability:

1.7 fl. oz., $29.00; 3.3 fl. oz., $39.00

Whatever happened to modesty?

I stumbled upon this great article by Michael Hyatt last night and I really identified with it. I am constantly shocked by what I see my neighbor girls wearing (or not) as they walk to the bus stop in the morning.

Do you think as a culture we have lost our modesty?

Come join the discussion in the CoffeeTalk Community at BlogFrog.

Here is an excerpt from the article you can read the whole thing here.

I watched MTVs VMA awards last night. It’s been a while since I’ve seen MTV, but I was flabbergasted. I could not believe the sensuality and decadence I witnessed. Gail and I finally had to turn it off. We just couldn’t take it any more.

As I thought about my experience later, it made me sad. I am the father of five daughters. So perhaps I’m just a little overly sensitive. But I was shocked at the complete absence of modesty, the ridicule of virginity, and the latent misogyny displayed by Russell Brand and many of the artists themselves.

Regardless, it got me to thinking, Where are these girls fathers? Has anyone ever taught them the concept of modesty? Or have all the men in their lives simply exploited them as sex objects

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not a prude. But I do think some basic guidelines are in order. These are not rules about skirt length or the amount of cleavage you can show. I’m just not a very good legalist; they are simply guidelines.

I gave these to my girls when they were growing up. Frankly, they haven’t been perfect in following them.

Here they are: “Four Guidelines for Modesty”:

  1. If you have trouble getting into it or out of it, it is probably not modest.
  2. If you have to be careful when you sit down or bend over, it is probably not modest.
  3. If people look at any part of your body before looking at your face, it is probably not modest.
  4. If you can see your most private body parts or an outline of those parts under the fabric, it is probably not modest.

If you think these guidelines are helpful, you might want to pass them along to the young women you know. Evidently, not many are getting the message elsewhere.

I’m in love with my Chi Ultra Hair Straightener!

I had been using the same, ol’ hair straightener for years, and I finally realized it’s a horrible hunk of junk. So I finally decided I was going to splurge and buy a GOOD hair straightener. I did my research, and lo and behold, everyone agrees – Chi Hair Straighteners are the best.

So off I went to Ulta, where I found this hair straightener, and I bought it on the spot!

Can I just tell you I’m in love, and what the heck was I waiting for? I can’t believe I went years using the same old beat up straightener, when products like THIS existed! It’s amazing! It is the most perfect straightener on the market.

Would I lie to you?
