CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls Book Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

 

 

 

I’m not sure about you, but I am all for look­ing hot & sexy when it comes to dress­ing up for my hubby, or even for a night out on the town with my besties. A lot of ladies that I know have let them­selves go after they got mar­ried as they reached a com­fort level with their hus­bands and really don’t seem to care what they look like in the bed­room, or even while out with their spouse unfortunately.

Look­ing and dress­ing naughty makes one feel amaz­ing on the inside, which hon­estly leads to a phe­nom­e­nal sex life and higher self esteem.

Many girls that I per­son­ally know need makeovers. They really need to know how to apply their makeup and dress them­selves prop­erly to look very classy with­out look­ing trashy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This new book by beauty mae­stro Dim­itri James called Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls shares a ton of advice to make a ‘nice girl’ become siz­zling hot but still classy. Dim­itri James says that “Nice” girls are invis­i­ble, “Trashy” girls go over the top, and “Naughty” is the happy medium that pushes the enve­lope with­out cross­ing the line. There are a few dif­fer­ent chap­ters that range from: “Naughty at work” to “Naughty First Date” to “Naughty Trav­eler” and “Yummy Mommy.” Dim­itri James also cre­ated a line of amaz­ing pre­mium skin care for­mu­las and colour cos­met­ics called Skinn Cos­met­ics!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am pretty cer­tain that we all know ladies that play the ‘nice girl’ role in life. They fix their hair and makeup to appear prud­ish. They have no sense of fash­ion really, as they only apply a lit­tle lip balm to their face and noth­ing else. They brush their hair back into an ugly plain jane pony­tail. They dress them­selves in turtle­necks with a cardi­gan over the top, and wear a pair of ugly slacks that no guy would look twice at. I know a few like this, and it truly sad­dens me. A makeover is truly in order, and this book would do these girls wonders!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s the mantra and mes­sage of the new “tell-all” how-to paper­back, phys­i­cal book from beauty mae­stro Dim­itri James. In Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls, James cre­ates a new kind of fin­ish­ing school–one for nice girls who always fin­ish any­where but first.

Tired of see­ing the many “nice girls” in his life con­stantly over­looked, James, a celebrity makeup artist, style guru and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity, offers a lively and enter­tain­ing read full of action­able tips and tricks, show­ing you how to get whom and what you want.

Those open the book will learn how to look classy, not trashy, trad­ing the prim, proper uni­form of “safe” cloth­ing, makeup and hair for some­thing sex­ier and more invit­ing, but still situation-appropriate. “You would be sur­prised how many women don’t know how to use clothes and makeup to mar­ket them­selves in var­i­ous social or pro­fes­sional set­tings,” says James. “‘Nice’ girls are invis­i­ble, and ‘trashy’ ones go over the top. ‘Naughty’ is the happy medium that pushes the enve­lope with­out cross­ing the line.”

Thus, James chal­lenges the tra­di­tional con­no­ta­tions of the word “naughty” and rede­fines it as a spirit that can change both image and self-perception for the bet­ter. In chap­ters that range from “Naughty at Work” to “Naughty First Date” to “Naughty Trav­eler” and “Yummy Mommy,” the author shows read­ers how to dress out­side the box and re-vamp their beauty reg­i­mens to add siz­zle to their style for all sea­sons and occasions.

Flip open the phys­i­cal book to almost any page and find a small gem of wis­dom, or a stun­ningly clear depic­tion of “nice” vs. “naughty” vs. “trashy,” all sprin­kled with James’ trade­mark wit, can­dor and spirit of cama­raderie.
Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls is loaded with makeup and fash­ion advice to empower a Nice Girl to trans­form her­self into a spicy but classy woman in every sit­u­a­tion. So, go ahead and chan­nel your inner naughty. Instead of fad­ing into the back­ground, become a star in your own life!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take your true beauty a step higher and look and feel stun­ning! This book teaches you about dress­ing up to look naughty, but not in a bad way. You don’t want to dress nice or believe me, you are going to get over­looked. You don’t want to dress trashy though, or you are going to seek the wrong atten­tion. This is where dress­ing up naughty comes into play. It’s just about bring­ing out your true beauty in a fash­ion­able way. Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls: How To Turn Up the Heat and Add Sex Appeal to Every­day Sit­u­a­tions will give you sweet tips on absolutely every­thing from dress­ing up, to fix­ing your hair and appyling your makeup!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Battleship Keychain Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Spon­sored by Tomoson.com

Thanks to Tomo­son and WholesaleKeychain.com I was able to review The mini Bat­tle­ship Key­chain! I love unique key­chains and I thought this would be a fun key­chain to have to keep my kid­diess enter­tained when we are in a bor­ing sit­u­a­tion such as in the car on long trips!

Prod­uct Descrip­tion
To play Bat­tle­ship: Remove box lid from Bat­tle Sta­tion plat­form. Attach Bat­tle Sta­tion plat­form into under­side of lid and snap shut. Posi­tion ships on ocean grids — each player gets 1 ship. Take turns call­ing out shots using coor­di­nates on the top and side of the ocean grid. Keep track of hits and misses by writ­ing down all coor­di­nates. Be the first to sink your opponent’s Bat­tle­ship and you win! Two can play! NOTE: The con­fig­u­ra­tion of the Bat­tle Sta­tions has been altered, and the num­ber of Bat­tle­ships reduced to acco­mo­date the minia­ture key­chain size.

I don’t care what kind of key­chain you have, you are not any­where near as cool as the guy who has a Bat­tle­ship game on his key­chain! The idea of this portable mini Bat­tle­ship game key­chain is great for trav­el­ing (road trips) and for end­less hours of enter­tain­ment. There are many other mini key­chain games avail­able to col­lect. They are also cool and fun acces­sories. Because of the very small parts, the man­u­fac­ture rec­om­men­da­tion is for ages 8 years and up.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest – Greenfire all natural Massage Candles Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

green

Green­fire all nat­ural Mas­sage Can­dles is a com­pany that sells delight­fully sooth­ing stress-relieving candles!

 What is a mas­sage can­dle you ask? Sim­ply light the can­dle and burn it for 15+ min­utes to enjoy the won­der­ful scent! As soon as you extin­guish the flame, use it as a warm mas­sage oil. One of the ben­e­fits of using Green­fire Can­dles for mas­sage is that the warm oily wax soothes dry skin: Greenfire’s pre­mium and unique blend of all-natural veg­etable and soy waxes is vastly sat­u­rated with Vit­a­min E. Use Green­fire can­dles for their heal­ing pur­poses. They’re even per­fect for foot mas­sages! Greenfire’s wax blend is the safest and most lux­u­ri­ous wax on the market.!Premium, food-grade ingre­di­ents and the wax’s low melt­ing point mean the prod­uct is entirely skin-safe and warm to the touch. The vit­a­min E will absorb into skin, leav­ing it lux­u­ri­ously soft and fully renewed. The uses of Green­fire Can­dles are end­less! Light before you get in the shower, then use it on your feet, elbows, and/or legs after­ward. Keep a small can­dle in your purse and use the unmelted wax as lip balm or to soothe mos­quito bites. Light one to set a mood, then use the wax with your part­ner to trade mas­sages. Have a spa party and light sev­eral scents, let­ting each par­tic­i­pant try their favorite after a man­i­cure or pedi­cure. Or sim­ply use them to lightly and per­fectly scent a room, know­ing the wax and lead-free wick are safe and toxin-free, unlike petroleum-based paraf­fin can­dles or other can­dles that use lead in the wicks. Please read instruc­tions on the bot­tom of the can­dle prior to use. Burn time: One ounce burns about 8 to 10 hours. Tins are made from par­tially recy­cled mate­ri­als. All tins are food-grade and 100% recy­clable or reusable!

ga

Green­fire Can­dles come in an exten­sive array of gor­geous scents! A few of the many are French Laven­der, Green­fire Laven­der San­dal­wood Vanilla Blend,Greenfire Pep­per­mint Euca­lyp­tus Basil, among many others!!

I was sent to review an amaz­ing pack­age of 5 tins to review, all of misc. scents! I fell right in love with them, and set them all over my bath­room to light when hav­ing my own lit­tle pri­vate spa night at home. Here you have all the ben­e­fits of a calm­ing spa feel­ing using these great can­dles with­out the big expense!

You can pur­chase these great Green­fire Can­dles right at her online retail store, Amazon.com. Pur­chase these now so inex­pen­sively by click­ing here which links you directly to the store.

Green­fire also has a Cus­tom For­tune Cookie Com­pany and you can check out their neat prod­ucts by click­ing here!
