candles. Tis the season for visiting and gifting. If you need a holiday gift or a host gift you’re always safe when you go the candle route. I recently received a RareLumiere candle that I love. They are handcrafted and packaged beautifully. They have 55 hours of burn time and use 100% cotton wicks. The wax does not pool and has no parabens, sulfates, or phalates. Each candle is named after a famous city with a scent to match. So pick up a RareLumiere for someone you love, and one for yourself.

there’s a new line of lipsticks from sheer tints to pigment rich formulas. Sassy Lips has three collections you should get to know. Make The moment is 6 handcrafted translucent lipsticks infused with gold flakes. They somehow have a real wild chrysanthemum flower in the middle of them! They turn to different shades of glossy pink according to your body temperature. They are hydrating and soft. The Keep Em Guessing collection is four aloe vera based color changing lipsticks that last longer than a lip stain. They are like a mood ring for your lips. They will change shade depending on the ph of your lips. Lastly the Dare to Be You matte lipsticks are hydrating and beautiful with that “in” look. So pucker up for Sassy, and put your lips to work…

mama_voluptuous_breast_oil_largewell there’s an oil to help. Mama’s Voluptuous Breast Oil from Aloha Sun Botanicals.  This oil is designed to improve skin texture by plumping up breast tissue, and helping to balance hormones. It does this while stimulating blood circulation. It can also be used to help stimulate milk production in nursing mothers.  This will not increase your boob size, sorry. It will however give a “plump” effect.  Aloha Sun Botanical oils are selected both for medicinal and luxurious properties. Each product in the Therapeutic Line contains special blends of pure essential oils designed to work with different emotional states and skin conditions. The “Mama’s Line is specially made for that special time in a mother’s life before and just after pregnancy.”Aloha SUN BOTANICALS is located on the slopes of Haleakala in Kula, Maui, Hawaii. They incorporate traditional Hawaiian ingredients and are handcrafted in small batches.  So pump up those puppies with Aloha, and let someone else measure….
