Pretty Eye Candy

I thought today could use some pretty eye candy.
Andy Samberg is always my top choice.

Do you agree? Who is at the top of your eye candy list?

Pink Beauty Recommends......

Still in search of that perfect foundation at an affordable price? Enter: Revlon Colourstay Foundation.

I worked for Revlon for a while but it was actually my friend who is a makeup artist that introduced me to this foundation. "This stuff sticks to your face" she claimed. Well, I haven't stopped using it since. It really does "stick to your face" (in a good way). The coverage lasts and you wont need to reapply.

It comes in two combinations; Normal/Dry and Combination/Oily. I use the Normal/Dry because I have really dry skin.
Great foundation for these super hot summer days!!

Sleeping Beauty

Continuing with the theme of things that smell amazing, I want to tell you about one of my other all time favourite products which I have been using for 3 years now: Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Body Lotion in "Lavender Chamomile". The mix of Lavender and Chamomile creates a calm, lulling effect that is great for getting a peaceful sleep. I don't only use this lotion at nighttime though.... Because, who doesn't' want to feel calm and soothed all day long?

There are so many products in this line, from candles to pillow sprays as well as other calming scents. I've only tried this lotion so far but I might need to try out some of the other products from this line.

Sleep Tight Sleeping Beauties!

Coo-Coo for Coconuts!

Hello, My name is Amanda.... And I'm a Coconut-aholic. I know alot of people share in my obsession and I thought it was time for a post regarding my addiction.

I've been wearing my new coconut body lotion to work this week and I have never received this many compliments before about how good I smell.

There's just something about the smell of coconut in the summer that really makes me happy.

When I hit up the big Bath And Body works sale a few weeks ago I couldn't resist the Exotic Coconut Body Lotion that was on sale for half price.
I now wish I would have picked up some other products from this same collection, I will have to go back and pick some up!

Exfoliating with a coconut body scrub in the shower is maybe my favourite beauty ritual. The Body Shop Coconut Body Scrub takes the cake... and funny enough, it smells like a mix of coconut and cake. Mmmmm

Another Coconut product I am digging these days is Organix Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner. I almost always use coconut shampoo and conditioner before going on a date.... Because what guy can resist a girl with Coconut smelling hair? Am I right fellas?

SPAresource is another brand I've used and they have a fantastic coconut Shower Gel. For only $6.00 you get a very large container which features an easy to use large pump, which is great for the shower. The body lotion for this line is great too and comes in the same large container.

For body spray I like Calgon Coconut Sorbet Body Mist. I keep this in my gym bag for a refreshing mist after work outs. It smells delicious!

Philosophy has a line called Coconut Frosting which always tempts me but I haven't tried it yet. I really want to try this Coconut Frosting Lip Shine. Has anyone tried it yet?

Do you share in my addiction? What coconut products are you favs?

R U Bot Or Not?

Last night my work was putting on the event for the launching of SVEDKA Vodka in Canada. With its tagline "Voted #1 Vodka of 2033" the marketing campaign features Svedka Girl, quite the glamorous robot. I was working the guestlist so I didn't get to fully experience all the futuristic fun but, here are some pictures so we can all experience it together :)

The event was held at the new Parts & Labour bar on Queen west. It's a really neat spot!

Svedka Cocktails

How cute do these look!?

A fortune teller was on hand to tell everyone what the future holds

BUY 1 GET 2 FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This weekend Steps had it's sale on that always tempts me. Buy one pair get two free.... Yup, buy one pair of shoes... and get two FREE!!! What girl can resist that?

I gave in.
I got these 3 gorgeous pairs of shoes for $100.00.
No regrets :)
Needed a cute pair of flip flops

Love the smaller heel on these so I can still wear them to work

Last but certainly not least: My new favourite pair of shoes :)

How cute are these!??!?!

While I was trying on these pink shoes I had 2 random ladies from the mall in their 70's come sit down and watch me. They couldn't get over how cute these shoes looked and said that I must get them while I am still young and can still wear heels. The one lady said "I always told myself when I was younger that I didn't have the money for those types of things but now I wish I would have just went for it. So go for it, even if you don't have the money" she told me..... well I don't have the money but I took her advice and went for it!

The sale is still on. There is a Steps at Burlington Mall and also at Yonge and Bloor. Check online for other locations. Happy Shopping!
