It means that you can open the zip and expose your different color from inside. Just do some experiments with muted colors like olive green.

Others may like to use neoprene which gives more protections while rainy days. It depends on your favorite for this segment and keep wear your Nike zip up hoodie mens.

You Should Know These Beauty Product For A Summer

Aveeno Lip Protectant Intense Relief Medicated


Aveeno Lip Protectant Intense Relief Medicated – I’m one of those women who cannot leave the house without a tube of lip balm in her purse. Because I’m constantly losing them as well, I periodically have to replenish my stock. Usually, I like to try something new and I was very excited to try Aveeno’s Intense Relief Medicated Therapy balm.

Since I’m also a sucker for natural (or close to natural) beauty products, I had high hopes for Aveeno’s lip balm, which contains a blend of jojoba oil, shea butter, and oatmeal for super moisturization.

One application of this balm and I was hooked. My lips instantly looked and felt moisturized, and it even left a subtle shine on my lips like lip gloss would, but with the added benefit of being non-sticky and soothing.

Aveeno Lip Protectant Intense

My lips tend to get really dry during the winter months, and they can often crack and become painful. This lip balm started working the minute I applied it, and after the first week you couldn’t even tell I’d had chapped lips! I was amazed — how could I have remained ignorant of this product for so long?

What’s more, the cooling tingle of the menthol isn’t overpowering, and it doesn’t taste like you swallowed a tube of toothpaste like some medicated balms. However, it does have a tendency to melt, so I like to keep a tube in the refrigerator before I take it anywhere to ensure it remains cold — so far, that’s done the trick!

Bottom line? If you suffer from severely dry, chapped lips, then you should definitely try this medicated lip balm from Aveeno. Unfortunately, the product isn’t available in stores anymore, but you can order it online from for $3.69. It’s a little more expensive than some other balms, but trust me — the price is well worth it!

DuWop Lip Venom – increase circulation to the lips

DuWop Lip Venom | Ordinarily, I don’t put much faith into products making seemingly outlandish claims. DuWop Lip Venom promises to “increase circulation” to the lips, which in turn supposedly enhances the shape and color of your lips. I’ve used other DuWop products before, but I shied away from the lip venom because I’d heard reports that it burns the heck out of your lips (it makes sense, considering two of the essential oils in DuWop’s Lip Venom are cinnamon and ginger!). However, I was intrigued by the rave reviews I heard from other women and read online, so with a bit of trepidation I decided to give it a shot.

Upon first application, I immediately noticed a fairly intense tingling sensation. I was expecting a fierce burn, but never got it. All I experienced was the not-unpleasant tingling sensation, although I can see why some women who are particularly sensitive may not like this product. I didn’t exactly notice any lip-plumping action, but I did receive several compliments from friends and family asking if I was trying a new lip color — it did enhance my natural lip color, which I found very nice. While I was happy with my overall experience, I was a little disappointed at how small the tube is. If you run through lip gloss quickly (like I do!) then you’ll run out of this stuff in no time. At $16 a pop, it’s a pricey luxury for frequent wear.

I’ve worn it a few times since my first attempt at gorgeous, Angelina Jolie-esque lips, but it still doesn’t do much more than enhance my lip color and give me that tingly, spicy feeling. It doesn’t taste too bad, either, which is definitely a plus. Overall, I wouldn’t go into buying this product hoping for plump lips, but it may be worth it for women who just want to enhance their natural lip color without a goopy, sticky feeling like most glosses. If you discover the tingly feeling is too much for you, they do make a version of lip venom without the sting. DuWop Lip Venom

Countertop Spray with Lemon Verbena

I like things that smell good, and when it comes to cleaning products, the scent (or lack thereof) is what causes me to buy it. Sometimes cleaning products can be too strong and I prefer something with no fragrance at all. Also, I want to know that my family and I are not inhaling noxious fumes or eating off something that has been cleaned by toxic chemicals. One of my favorite all-natural cleaning products is Mrs. Meyer’s Countertop Spray with Lemon Verbena. The scent is irresistible.

This is going to sound weird, but whenever I use this cleaner, it makes me want to stay in the room I just used it in and take in deep breaths of it. It’s fragrant, but not overpowering. Unlike other all-purpose cleaners, Mrs. Meyer’s leaves no residue or streaking. When I’ve used cleaning products in the past that contained harsh chemicals, I was always irked by how much elbow grease I had to use just to get the thin film of stinky chemicals off the kitchen tiles. The Countertop Spray is great everywhere: the bathroom, the kids’ room, and I’ve even used on the kids’ car seats.

The best part of this cleaner is that when you find yourself with an empty bottle, just add four tablespoons of the cleaner and dilute with 1/2 bottle of water and you can go back to cleaning like a champ! Ingredients for the Counter Spray include Deionized Water, Essential Oils of Lemon, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Clover, Geranium, and Fir Needle. A Vegetable Protein Extract is added in order to neutralize stinky odors in the bathroom and kitchen. There are also Chelating Agents and Solubolizing Agents. Sounds odd; I’ll have to get back you about these agents. Although I couldn’t find out what these last two ingredients were on their website, they do have a page dedicated to explaining environmental and safety information regarding Mrs. Meyer’s ingredients.

Their products contain naturally derived ingredients, and when an ingredient cannot be derived from a plant that meets their high standards, they use what they call “safe synthetics.” Their cleaners also do not contain ammonia, chlorine, or phosphates and the liquid cleaners are biodegradable. For a euphoric cleaning experience, check out Mrs. Meyer’s Countertop Spray with Lemon Verbena (also comes in Basil, Lavender and Geranium).

Sephora Brand Body Wash in Tangerine Grapefruit

Sephora Brand Body Wash

Sephora Brand Body Wash | Each holiday, I undoubtedly find myself bombarded with bath products: shower gels, lotions, soap — you name it, and I guarantee you I have a stockpile that would clean 20 people for 6 months, with some left over!

I had received Sephora’s Body Bash in Tangerine Orange as a Christmas gift last year, and I usually closet away the stuff I know I won’t use for awhile — and promptly forget about it. I managed to unearth this the other day and thought, “Heck, why not give it a go?”

$12 seems a little steep to pay for body wash, but I didn’t have to buy it myself — so it was, in essence, a free product review, and that’s always fun!

I was pleased with the scent, surprisingly enough, because I usually tend to shy away from citrus scents. However, the fragrance was pleasing without overwhelming my senses, and the aroma lasted throughout the day. I was still smelling like oranges when I went to bed last night!

It seemed to pretty much do what every other body wash is supposed to do — it cleansed without over-drying my sensitive skin, which was a plus, but it doesn’t have anything really special going for it. I enjoyed the product, but nothing stood out to me as particularly outstanding from other, cheaper body washes.

One other good thing about this product, though, is that it manages to foam up quite nicely. I imagine you could use it as a substitute for bubble bath in a pinch. I’d be interested to try some of the other scents (they have quite a few, such as the Morning Waterlilly or Coconut Cream, yum!).

Overall, I thought this was a pretty nice body wash, but it wasn’t something I’d regularly pay $12 for when I can get the same stuff elsewhere for a lot less money. They do occasionally put some of their scents on sale (there are a few on there for $3 right now, which for that price is well worth it).

If you are eager to try these body washes out, I recommend waiting until they go on sale. Otherwise, you can stick to your regular body wash and be just as happy!

Penn Ave Eyewear – Crazy easy and stylish

two weeks ago I told my neighbor that I haven’t had an eye exam since I was in middle school. She was pretty shocked and told me to schedule an appointment ASAP. Considering the fact that I’m a photographer, I thought that maybe I was a total fool for not doing this sooner than later – after all, my job relies a lot on my eyesight. Hey, maybe my vision is terrible and I just don’t know the difference… I thought. So I schedule an appointment and off I went.

Penn Ave Eyewear specs

I sat through a bunch of weird tests, with a weird doctor, only to be told… that I had 20/20 vision.

Good! I don’t need glasses.

Bad! I wanted a cute pair of glasses.

Move forward a few days and along comes Penn Avenue Eyewear! Hallelujah! Now I can rock a cute pair of spectacles, even if they are prescription-less. I initially assumed that I would have to go to their store (which, obviously I thought was on Penn Avenue) to pick out the perfect pair – but I was wrong! They operate solely over the ‘net and mail. Here’s how it works…

Step 1: Go to their website and select up to 5 pairs that you’d like to try on.

Step 2: They ship you sample pairs for FREE

Step 3: Try on and get friend’s opinions.

Step 4: Purchase your actual pair online, since you now know exactly what you want!

So, honestly, this was like the easiest process ever. It was super fun to get their box of glasses in the mail (quick!), and I got to ask my husband’s opinions without having to send him those weird photo texts from the store. And he tried a few on too just for laughs:)My neighbor (who initially insisted on my eye exam) also was over, and she provided the necessary input to pick out the winning pair. Slapped the return shipping label back on the box (included), and I was good to go! And I shopped in my lounge pants. Talk about a win.

Here they are actually on, including the style name.

Loved how big and nerdy these looked on..

They have some cool acetate frames, and I chose these ones because of the clear bottoms.

Definitely the runner up – these had the dark front-facing rims, with a fun blue color on the inside.

The winners! I loved that I got to try on multiple pairs, because then I could compare to see which were my favorite by going back and forth. Now, these come in tortoise (which I’m currently obsessed with) and an awesome blue acetate. Ah! Might have to get both…

Goody StayPut Hold Headwrap


Goody StayPut Hold Headwrap

Since I have long hair, I’m always trying to find different way to get my hair out of my face. Even when I pull it back into a messy bun or braid it, I still find strands framing my face when I don’t want them there. I am always armed with bobby pins and hair elastics — you’ll find these items littered around my bedroom, purse, and office. I try not to use too many hair products during the week, opting for hair spray and styling gel only when I’m going out to dinner or some other special occasion.

I love headbands because you can give the illusion of a trendy hairstyle when you’re actually having the worst bad hair day ever. I have tried a few dozen different head bands in the past year alone. None of them have worked. Plastic headbands don’t seem to fit my head properly and are so tight, especially around the ear area, that I can’t wear them for more than half an hour. I’ve tried a few plastic headbands with teeth that were more a torture device than a way to keep the band in place. I see women wearing these all the time — am I the only one whose threshold for pain is pretty low? How do these women do it? Are they just working through the pain in the name of fashion? Fabric headbands are pointless. When I put these headbands on they tend to slide off my hair, even after I’ve adjusted them to fit my head properly.

I need something that is going to stay in place and not move all over my head so that I have to keep adjusting it every few minutes.

I bought Goody StayPut Hold Headwrap in hopes that I could keep hair out of my face and finally find a headband that stayed where I wanted it to.

Biolage SmoothTherapie Shampoo and Conditioner

Biolage SmoothTherapie Shampoo

I rarely use salon products — normally, I stick to whatever happens to be on sale at the drugstore. However, after a recent cut I decided to splurge a little, and purchased Matrix’s Biolage SmoothTherapie shampoo and conditioner.

The products, a blend of natural oils like almond and grape seed, promised to “cleanse hair without weighing it down.” They also promised my dry, unruly hair would be luscious and frizz-free. It sounded good, and for $20 I figured I may as well give them a chance.

Excited, I hopped in the shower and squeezed out a dime-sized drop of shampoo. I massaged it into my scalp and was pleasantly surprised. It has a light, almost tropical scent that’s just perfect and not overpowering. The conditioner offered the same pleasing fragrance and made my hair feel smoother before I’d even rinsed it out. I was feeling pretty optimistic at that point!

After rinsing, I hopped out of the shower and scrutinized my hair. It was already looking pretty healthy after my recent cut, but I was very surprised to feel how soft it was! For once, a shampoo and conditioner had done what it promised to do. I finger combed my hair and let it dry, and my hair remained touchable and frizz-free all day.

Since then, I’ve used Biolage SmoothTherapie products regularly, and continue to be delighted by the results. If you have unruly, damaged or frizzy hair, I strongly suggest you try these products. Normally after showering I have to put some sort of product in my hair to make it soft, but I skipped that step entirely because these products actually work.

Biolage is only available in salons, and I paid $20 for the set of shampoo and conditioner. If you are tired of your regular shampoo and conditioner not doing what it should, give these products a try. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
