I am always looking for wonderful, new products to take care of every inch of my skin. I am so happy to share with you a great company that I recently found online called Organoderm.

They help you care for your skin with no worries about harmful chemicals that are in many non-organic products out there. From cleanser, to eye gel, day creams, night cream and exfoliators, Organoderm has you covered.

I used the Organic Exfoliator religiously every morning for two weeks and this stuff is amazing. It is perfect for face, knees, elbows and any other rough areas on your body that you need to target. It smells like citrus fruits, contains raw sugar and an assortment of organic oils. The raw sugar is not so abrasive that it hurts your skin and it dissolves while scrubbing. After using this product my skin felt so clean, refreshed and those rough areas are now smooth!
I absolutely loved the Day Cream and I think this is one of the best Day Creams that I have ever tried. I have found that many daytime facial creams I have used in the past are so watered down that as soon as you apply them, it feels like it disappears and just leaves your skin feeling dried out. I applied the Organoderm Day Cream right after I would get out of the shower in the morning and found this cream to be thicker and not thin, oily or watery. I actually felt like I put something on and it made my face feel soft and moisturized. It was perfect under my makeup for daytime wear
I highly recommend this company and their wonderful range of products. I can’t wait to purchase a few more of them to give them a try too. If the rest of the line is as great as the two that I have tried I know I will be very happy.

These glitter cosmetics are truly amazing. I would reccommend them to anyone! I have owned other big brand name Glitter’s and none of them even come close compared to Lit cosmetics glitter. First of all the glitter is VERY pigmented, and they are very true to colour. This is what I seen in the package that I received. I was very excited!!
The Amazing thing about the Lit cosmetics Glitter Base is that it really does NOT allow the glitter to crease on your eyes. And It can also be used as a base for eyeshadows which is what I tried for a day and your eyeshadow lasts all day and night (until you take it off of course.) It enhances the colours of the eyeshadows, and I have also used it under my blush and it works with that as well! This is amazing! I love this stuff!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to anyone who loves glitter and wants it to last all day long!
Lit cosmetics insists that with No Glitter there is No Glory!! Start your LIT experience off with one of their great kits that include everything you need to add some glitz your look right up! These natural, water-based products are alcohol, paraben and Propylene Glycol free. LIT Cosmetics are hypoallergenic and ideal for sensitive skin. This fun, exciting product is easy to use and suitable for everyone. Bring some sparkle to any party with LIT Cosmetics or put them on your giving list for someone special and deserving!
Lit Cosmetics glitter is amazing because unlike other glitter bases this one is completely organic, and when it’s on you don’t even feel the glitter is there. No sticky, itchy, fly everywhere mess. Best of all the patented water-based glitter base will last you for years. It’s a bang for your buck and a real definate “must have.” They have the best cosmetics out there by far! Also note: shipping is just $10 anywhere in the world!
Who Should Wear Lit Cosmetics
Our “target market” is virtually everyone. Lit products are practical for all ages, both sexes and every skin tone. Our products are worn by every generation: daughters, mothers, and grandmothers all wear Lit! You will fall in love after the first application and really what it comes down to is: “girls just wanna have fun!”
Along with everyday wear, Lit Cosmetics is perfect for:
•And much more!
The Birth of Lit Cosmetics
The idea for Lit has roots back in 2001 when Jodie Perks, the owner/inventor of Lit Cosmetics, was slinging drinks in the night clubs around Calgary. Having always been a fan of fun makeup and a little “bling, bling”, Jodie felt the need to be a little different from the rest of the girly girls serving up drinks. That’s when she hit on the idea of glitter eye makeup!
The basic concept was simple; sparkles give a look of optimum colour intensity and light reflection at all times of the day and into the night. Jodie had finally hit on a cool makeup to match her flashy personality!
After looking into the products on the market there was surprisingly no decent glitter eye shadows to be found, thus Jodie was forced to take matters into her own hands and began experimenting. Long hours and months of testing in her “top secret” basement lab evaluating the pros and cons of all other glitter products she exposed a number of flaws, the most obvious being the application process and the adhesive. With time and determination, Jodie developed a wonderful adhesive that holds, is comfortable and keeps the brilliant shine of the glitter, as well as a whole new application process for an exciting loose colour cosmetic line. Since 2001, Lit Cosmetics is now not only a bar-star product but has grown into a makeup that can be worn by anyone of any age at anytime—and that’s how Lit was born!
Why Lit is Different
“No glitter, no glory” is our motto—fun, yet true. Being in “glitterology” (the science of glitter) for 6 years we have improved glitter/loose colour makeup as it is sold in the market today. With our liquid adhesive now perfected, we have also broken down our pigments into 4 different sizes and 4 different varieties-Lit simply specializes in glitter/loose colour makeup. Remember: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a single colour highlighter to having 10 shades blended over your eyelids-we dare you… Let the fun begin, and your creativity soar!
What is the Vision of Lit Cosmetics?
Other than wanting to “glitter the world” it has always been our dream to change the way people perceive or think about glitter makeup. Our vision was to create a good quality, sexy new makeup line unlike any other that is fun, exciting, easy to use and suitable for everyone. Whether it’s a day at the office or a special night out, glitter is the perfect compliment to your look. Get noticed, get confident — get Lit!
A Note To Customers
Hello fellow Lit Chicks and we can’t forget about those Lit Dudes out there, it is now time to have fun and be creative with your make-up, accessories and fashion—to realize that girls do just want to have fun, as Cyndi Lauper preached to us in the 80’s. Life is way too short to be boring or to simply be bored. Don’t be one of those girls who says, “Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off.” You know who you are, and there are a lot of you because I hear it every single day! So don’t be blocked by yourself, break though and be bold, be beautiful. This next bit of information may sound a little odd but it’s true, and all the present glitter girls of the world know this little secret and I believe in it as well: glitter is good for the soul. Something happens when you add a little glitter to your day. It gives you a smile, a good energy and just pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you ma’am! So give Lit Cosmetics a try and enjoy everything you get out of it, like I have for the past 11 years! My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seriously all the time, there is no age limit for glitter so you old gals like myself get it goin’ on and always remember, “no glitter, no glory!”

I was overwhelmed with happiness when approached by CrazyDogTshirts.com to do a review for them!
T-shirts are a basic staple in anyone’s wardrobe and they are a must for mine. Crazy Dog t-shirts carry an awesome variety to pick and choose from, the majority that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter or paying homage to some of the greatest cult classic films out there. So when I was given the opportunity to review a couple I immediately knew after browsing through all the fun tees that the Canadian eh team t-shirt would be perfect for me!! I live in a border city to Michigan, and the Americans love to bug me when I head over there and ask questions or have polite conversation and I use the word “EH”!? They immediately respond “Canadian HUH?” LOL
I find this to be hilarious, so I knew this was the PERFECT Tshirt for me to wear over there!!
It was nice to have a shirt that was comfortable and in my opinion cute that didn’t look like I was trying to squeeze as much of myself as possible into it, especially since most t-shirts for women nowadays are made to fit and can show off every tiny bump or bulge if your not careful. Soft and well made, my shirt washed great and I expect it to hang around for quite awhile as I’ve grown pretty fond of it.
Crazy Dog t-shirts allow you to narrow your searches down to specific categories such as vintage,hilarious,80’s and more to help make finding what you want easier and you just can’t beat the decent prices they offer. The only problem I had was the fact that I could’ve spent my whole day just entertaining myself by browsing their entire site. Not only do they have great shirts for adults but they carry some cute ones for kids as well. You just don’t lose out when it comes to options with this company!
I found this one HILARIOUS when browsing through their Costumes! A wig, cloning none other than the Infamous Kate Gosselin! LOL LOL
Is that not hilarious?! I just about choked on my milk when I saw that!!!!!
