Products I'm Loving Right Now

Shampoo & Conditioner: Mizani Thermasmooth System
My stylist uses this system when flat ironing my hair. It consists of a shampoo, conditioner, serum and a spritz. After using this my hair is so shiny, silky, smooth and stays straight so much longer. I almost always get my hair flat ironed but since using this system I have so many people ask me what I had done differently with my hair.

Deodorant: Little Black Dress Approved Degree Women Ultra Clear

Cleanser: Biore 4-in-1 Foaming Cleanser
Exfoliator: Patricia Wexler M.D Dermatology Resurfacing Microbrasion System

Eyeliner: Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes
Mascara: Covergirl Lash Blast

'V' Magazine's Plus-sized January Issue

An eight page editorial shot by Terry Richardson for 'V' Magazine is titled One Size Fits All. It shows a size 16 model paired along side a size 0 model. They are both posed and styled very similar. Beautiful plus sized model Crystal Renn holds her own. Why can't we see this more often?

Cookies & Cream Fudge

Thanks so much to Steph over at Confessions of a Stay-At-Home Mom for hosting a giveaway with Carnation Evaporated Milk. I snagged coupons for 2 free cans of Carnation Evaporated Milk! We all know how expensive baking goods are this time of year. Seriously, who isn't baking something for Christmas or New Year's?
I took a peak at to get some fresh ideas on what to make this holiday. I considered some of the savory dishes but was stopped dead in my tracks when I spotted the recipe for Cookies & Cream fudge. O.M.G. 
Yummo! *Rachel Ray voice*
