New Launch from NATURALLY SERIOUS: ILLUMI-NATION Anti-Fatigue Power Serum

I can't lie- I was excited the moment I read that this new product from Naturally Serious stated it could reduce the appearance of wrinkles within just 24 hours. Will Illumi-Nation Anti-Fatigue Power Serum actually do this?

I have applied now for a few days (as instructed/am and pm) and time will tell if such statements ring true yet it does make my skin appear more radiant! I like the idea of looking more youthful and the serum's natural blush color does absolutely add a certain glow to my skin. It's hard to say that it reduced the appearance of my wrinkles yet I definitely see a softer and more supple skin tone.

What the serum states:

The serum is all about anti-aging and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in just 24 hours.
It features a natural blush color that subtly illuminates leaving the skin with a healthy, radiant finish.
Like all Naturally Serious products, it is clean and ethically developed from formula to packaging.

This glossy anti-aging serum effortlessly melts into the skin for a dewy, glassy-skin radiance and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in just 24 hours. Illumi-Nation transforms the look of skin by smoothing and hydrating, leaving you with a brighter, healthier finish. Enriched with 1% Lavandox extracted from Spanish Lavender to reduce stress in the skin, and 3% Persian silk tree to improve the look of fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture caused by environmental aggressors, this serum transforms and hydrates for a naturally youthful and illuminated glow.

Price: $58, Available on, and select Sephora stores

PURE ROMANCE: Products That Empower, Educate and Entertain Women's Health Issues

Recently I attended an intimate event featuring the extensive brand Pure Romance. Founder Patty Brisben spoke of products they created for women’s health and I learned so much about keeping my body healthy and happy. Giggles filled the room at times when vibrators or lubricants were spoken of yet I loved speaking freely about sexual health. It is such an important topic that the more we get comfortable speaking about, the more we will become knowledgeable about how to be our best selves.

There were also so many wonderful products for shaving, moisturizing the body and self tanners. Last night I tried their “Coochy” best selling conditioning shave cream ($20) and it was incredible. After that I sprayed their Soothing Aftershave Mist ($24) and my legs felt so hydrated and soft to the touch. Amazing! The Lavender and Chamomile Massage Lotion ($32) was the final touch to soothe and smooth my skin. The scents in all products used are light as I am sensitive to smell. I have so many new products to sample yet I started with their number one seller first, Coochy.

There are a multitude of products to buy which cover many different categories. They even have bedroom attire in their product line! I am already impressed with everything I have personally sampled.

Both Patty Brisben and her President and CEO Chris Cicchinelli have non- profit organizations that not only deal with women’s sexual health but also help transgender youth and their families by providing education, advocacy and resources to build confidence and acceptance through change.

I learned so much at the event and am very grateful to have met Patty and her wonderful staff. The discussion of women's health must not stop here. Let's continue to keep the conversation going.

This is just a small sampling of what you will find on their website. 
Be sure to go to to see the full collection.

LUCKY CHICK: "Treat Yourself Like A Masterpiece" with The Poppy Collection

Rooted in ART- Lucky Chick's founder Stephanie Miklosvary created the brand in order to allow you to have freedom of self expression through your choice of beauty products. For me, beauty and art have been passions of mine for several decades so the Lucky Chick brand spoke to me right away. I not only loved the poppy flower packaging but the color variety (many more than swatched as well as other brand categories are available) are both extensive and beautifully pigmented.

Each jewel tone color is precisely picked from the painting of the Poppy flower created by the Stephanie’s Mother. The entire brand is rooted in art, grounded in nature and blossoming with color.

Given a project to create a painting every day as a meditation while she was going through breast cancer treatment, Stephanie’s Mom turned it into a collection of inspiring creations. Choose your own highly pigmented colors that range from deep reds and oranges to pinks and calming nudes. Allow yourself to feel the energy this collection brings to life with each detail that creates the complete masterpiece.

From their packaging to their website, the blossoming art comes from artist Bonnie Sakoff and The Poppy Collection is their very first launch.

Our faces are generally seen as our canvases so don't be afraid to be bold! The Poppy Collection has you covered no matter how you choose to express yourself. #letyourselfbloom

Colors swatched are Desire, Courage, Blissful and Paradise in both Creamy Matte Lipstick form as well as Hydrating Lip Lacquer.
