Sue Devitt takes a journey to Mt. Kilimanjaro this holiday season with a new, breathtaking collection inspired by the seductively alluring colors, textures and natural surroundings of this exotic locale. Created to mimic the vibrant hues of Kilimanjaro, Sue has captured a vision of exotic colors that range from the crisp mountain white caps to the deep shades of purple and lavender reflected off the mountain during the sun’s descent and an intense black African starry night.
The Kilimanjaro collection for Holiday 2008 includes:
Microquatic™ Hydrating Marine Mineral Eye Palette in Kilimanjaro ($37.50)
This exquisite palette features a variation of universally flattering purples in blendable, wearable and long-lasting eye color. This cutting edge formula also contains a synergistic complex of biotechnological marine and botanical substances such as Sea Butter, Shea Butter, Ceramides and Hylauronic Acid in addition to vitamins, minerals and proteins that work in tandem to help skin absorb water from the air while restoring skin’s natural elasticity.
Microquatic™ Mascara in Black Widow Black Lavender ($22.00)
Condition lashes while dispensing a deep black lavender pigment to the lashes. This luxurious mascara features Devitt’s signature Microquatic™ formulation, offering a nano dispersion of vitamins, pro-vitamins and soothing orchid extract for added hydration, while beeswax and microcrystalline wax keep lashes moist and malleable all day long.
Eye Intensifier Pencil in Black Widow Black Lavender ($22.00)
Long lasting, smudge-proof and water resistant, Eye Intensifier Pencil creates an instant and dramatic finish, emphasizing the eye with deep, dramatic shades in rich, velvety textures.

Medium Countertop Storage Unit – Set of 6 ($59.99) These actually come in small, medium, and large, so you can look for the size(s) that make the most sense to you. I think I used the medium or large ones through college, and I found them to work out really well. I liked them for things that just had no rhyme or reason – like hair ties and head bands. Just things that wouldn’t stack or organize very well.
Have your own home? Like to put holes in the wall? Boy, do I have a great solution for you! Continue reading →

Jergens Naturals has a line of daily moisturizers utilizing a natural approach. These moisturizers contain over 90% natural ingredients while still being effective. The moisturizers use vegetable-derived ingredients leaving them paraben-free. (As a side note, Jergens does not test on animals.) The new line comes in Hydrate, Renew, Soothe, and Refresh. All but Hydrate have 93% natural ingredients (while Hydrate has 92%).
I need me some ultra hydrating moisturizer come winter (especially for my dragon legs), so I opted for Hydrate ($8.49). It contains jojoba oil, agave and cactus extracts. What I like about it is how moisturizing it is without leaving me greasy OR taking ten minutes to sink in fully. I can apply it after my shower, blow-dry my hair (which takes about five minutes or so), and it’s already dry. It’s lightly scented with a scent I can’t quite put my finger on–it’s sort of a fresh, salad-y scent in a way. It’s not that yucky scent often accompanied by organic/natural products (you know, like a compost pile!), though, that’s for sure!
When it comes to keeping my skin soft all over, I often opt for drugstore brands like Jergens (they make one of my summer staples–their shimmer body lotion!). With the holidays coming up and the economy in a crunch, Jergens Naturals Moisturizers are an awesome budget-friendly option!
IsaDora’s Dazzling Diamonds Holiday 2008 launch includes an eyeshadow palette ($21.00) featuring five shades of eyeshadow. I thought I’d share a picture of the palette, plus swatches with you all The colors themselves are all on the frosty side, so for those looking for a subtle holiday palette need not consider this one. I found the shades themselves to be rather cool-toned, overall. The light blue definitely be a pale, icy winter blue!
