Maria Menounos GG 2014

butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes, was on-hand to help beautify Extra co-host, Maria Menounos at Sunday’s Golden Globes.

To create the look to complement Maria’s hot pink dress by Max Azria Atelier, Katie layered lacquers while keeping the nude mannequin nail look.

Nail How To:

  • Katie began by painting Maria’s nails with two coats of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Trallop (part of butter LONDON’s NEW Boho Rock Collection).
  • In order to add a bit of elegance to Maria’s nail look, Katie layered one coat of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Hen Party over Trallop to give the nail a chic feel.
  • Katie completed the look with butter LONDON P.D. Quick Topcoat and then applied butter LONDON Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil around the nails to help them dry faster.

What would you wear on a night out to a casino?

draper dress

Any casino that you choose to visit for a night out, whether it is just the one nearest to you in your local area or one of the top ones in a city like London, will have some kind of dress code – particularly at night. However part of the fun of a casino night is dressing up, and there are plenty of different clothing options for women – making the right one to choose dependent on the type of casino you are going to and the type of night that you have planned there.

Unsurprisingly the dress codes at places like The Bellagio in Las Vegas are a great deal stricter than those you will encounter at your local casino, but even if it is just a night out at the latter, most women will want to look good. One option that never fails to achieve this effect is to wear a short black dress, as this indicates that you are out to have a good time, while also looking understated and classy. However if you are going there primarily to play casino games like poker or the slots, rather than to party, perhaps a longer cocktail dress will give off a more serious vibe.

For extra-special visits to places like the Bellagio and other top casinos, most women will want to hit the heights of glamour. This is an opportunity to wear expensive full-length evening gowns, and accessorise with your best jewellery, so you can pretend to be a jet set high roller for the evening. Finally there is the casino party, and many of these have a fancy dress theme, so use this as a guideline. One common theme is old-fashioned gangster, which will mean a tight gown, gaudy gold jewellery, furs, red lipstick and retro 1930s hairstyle, to achieve the full classic Hollywood gangster’s moll look. Then again, should the theme be Jazz Age, a shorter flapper dress, topped off with a feather boa or headband, will be a more fitting outfit. But remember, you can always get a great gaming experience whilst in your pyjamas at home at www.luckynuggetcasino.com, so you wouldn’t have to worry about looking the part.

#NeriumAD Final update on our results!

nerium-jl-2

Well our 90 Days Real Results test with NeriumAD has finally come to an end, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Erin and I took the challenge to use Nerium AD for 90 days – and monitor our progress in three separate posts. (You can read the first post here, and the second here.) As part of the challenge, we were asked to use Nerium twice a day, and share our thoughts on our journey.

About Nerium International:
During advanced research on the uses of the Nerium oleander plant, an accidental discovery was made: the unique properties of Nerium oleander provided remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. This finding led to the creation of the NeriumAD skincare line.

Nerium scientists developed a breakthrough process, NBio-PL2, to derive an extract from the Nerium oleander plant in a way that preserves its unique and beneficial properties. This patented extraction process yields the NAE-8 extract, with powerful antioxidant properties, used to formulate the first-of-its-kind, age-defying Nerium product line.

Nerium International is the first company with the exclusive capability to harness the power of the Nerium oleander plant in its skincare products. The product line addresses multiple concerns at once, including: wrinkles, discoloration, and texture. Nerium controls this main active ingredient from seed to bottle, making the Nerium skincare line both high-impact and innovative. This is the Nerium Difference.

Jocelyn: My 90 days Results

Here is my (Jocelyn) before and after pictures. I am and always have been a HUGE skeptic when it comes to before and after photos. A lot of times the difference is subtle, if any. I compared my own before and after pictures, and I have to say, even I’m surprised! The most noticeable difference I found in my skin after using Nerium skincare is my pores are visibly smaller, and the tone/color of my skin is more even. I didn’t photoshop these pics, they came straight off my phone! (Although I should have photoshopped them, it looks like I have a mustache!? WTH.)

As you can see from the pictures, the tone of my skin has clearly changed. The appearance of pores has improved they look smaller, less visible. I have crows feet, and I love how Nerium has improved the appearance of  the crows feet the skin looks firmer and smoother . I think I’m a believer!

Erin: My 90 days Results

I am shocked and delighted to see what a difference 90 days with Nerium can make. At 36 years old I can definitely see the signs of aging creeping in larger pores, crows feet, dull skin tone and wiggly neck skin. When Jocelyn and I were offered the chance to do a 90 day challenge with Nerium I was cautiously optimistic hoping it might make a bit of improvement. Nerium has far surpassed my hopes, the appearance of my overall skin tone and texture has drastically improved   And as you can see from the photos below how big a change just 3 months made.

How fun are these before photos? Uh yeah not fun at all it feels wrong posting them but how else can I share just how great Nerium works? I have no makeup in the photos and did not use any photo shop or filters. You can clearly see from my before and after photos, the texture, tone and firmness of my skin has improved dramatically. One of the biggest changes was around my eyes. I laugh a lot which is a good thing except where wrinkles are concerned all my bouts of laughter have left me with some serious crows feet. But with Nerium AD the skin around my eyes looks firmer and smoother.

If you are ready to try a breakthrough formula that can improve the look and feel of your skin join the Nerium 90-Day Real Results Challenge.

Introducing Olive-Corn Body Scrub and Polish by DHC!

OliveCornBodyScrubAndPolish

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m totally head-over-heels-in-love with DHC. I have used numerous products from them, and haven’t found a single one I haven’t loved! I tried their Olive-Corn Body Scrub & Polish—a botanical-based lathering exfoliant.The scrub consists of two different sized granules made from gentle, non-irritating corn cob powder. The combination leaves your skin healthy, glowing, gorgeous, soft and beautiful!

This decadent all-in-one product provides thorough cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing properties for healthier, smoother-feeling skin from your bath or shower. Ordinary body scrub cleansers can dry out your skin after use, but this polish is formulated with moisturizing olive oil and nourishing vitamin E to leave a silky veil of hydration—even after you rinse. Plus, you’ll love its relaxing natural lavender aroma. What a lovely way to get in some “me” time, relax and achieve a spa-like feeling in the privacy of your own home. It’s a great way to cheer up your mind, soul and body.

The effect olive oil has on your skin is amazing. I love the way my skin feels healthier and more nourished, without being greasy. It really is works wonders!

In the shower or bath, massage lightly over skin. Rinse thoroughly. Use 1—2 times a week. Avoid using on freshly shaved skin.
