iPhone Purse or Waterproof Case?

Ever wish you could shop hands-free and without a heavy purse hanging on your shoulder?  I have.  But I’m not about to leave my beloved cell phone in the car – that would feel like driving without a seatbelt!   ūüė¶

I’ve walked around the grocery store on more than one occasion carrying my cell phone, bank card, and car keys when I was wearing an outfit with no pockets to put them in.  Did I mention that I carried all 3 with 1 hand?  I’ve perfected wearing the keychain ring on my ring finger while holding my bank card and cell phone in my palm.  That leaves me the other hand to push the buggy and shop.  Hardly hands-free!  Sorta defeats the purpose!  But I’m not about to wear a fanny pack – I’m too young for that!

I was happy to discover a phone purse at SheLuvsTech that I could wear like a wristlet.  And it comes in my favourite colour orange!  I could slip my bank card in there no problem.  FYI, use coupon code GIFT15 to save 15% until November 26, 2013.

NEW Microderm Abrasion For Face & Body!

I am SO excited about 4 brand new exfoliation products I just ordered from BeautiControl!  I’ll let you know what I think after I’ve been using them for a while.

Exfoliation is one of the most important treatments you can perform on your skin to help resolve certain skin problems, such as clogged pores, blemished skin, skin discoloration, dryness or rough skin Рthe signs of aging.  There are two types of exfoliants: chemical and physical.  Chemical exfoliants are applied and left on the skin for a short period of time, doing the work for you by dissolving away dry skin cells.  With a physical exfoliant, you do the work by using a tool to buff away dead skin cells. A combination of both physical and chemical exfoliants will give your skin the greatest results.

What‚Äôs All the Hype About Clarisonic?

This article is based on what Clarisonic has to say.  I’ll share my personal opinion in a follow-up article.

What is Sonic Cleansing?

While cleansing is the first step in any skin care ritual, it is often overlooked.  Typical manual cleansing can leave behind dirt and oil trapped in pores.  This build-up can damage the appearance and health of your skin and keep your skin care products from working like they should.

Used and recommended by spas and leading dermatologists, Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems use a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove makeup 6X better than cleansing with your hands alone.  Cleaner skin is the first step toward healthier looking skin.  And healthier looking skin is smoother, more radiant, and more beautiful.

The Clarisonic skin brush goes beyond the skin’s surface to the deeper layers of the pores.¬† On account of its deep cleansing properties, the Clarisonic skin brush results in a visible reduction in the size of enlarged pores, leaving skin smoother and younger looking.¬† It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as helps reduce oily areas, dry skin patches, and blemishes.¬† The Clarisonic skin brush is waterproof and rechargeable, and has customizable brush heads.

Sonic Cleansing Benefits

  • Cleanses Better ~ Sonic cleansing is the essential first step in a healthy skin care ritual. Gently gliding across skin while cleansing thoroughly, the sonic micro-massage loosens and removes dirt, oil, and makeup from pores.¬† Trusted by dermatologists and aestheticians, the sonic action clarifies and revitalizes the skin without harsh chemicals.
  • Healthier Looking Skin ~ Without proper cleansing, drying detergents, pollutants, oil, and bacteria can damage the appearance and health of your skin.¬† Using Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems helps to remove impurities and clear pores. ¬†And because there are no harsh abrasives or chemicals, Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems are a gentle, natural way to cleanse your skin.
  • Gentle ~ Sonic cleansing is the natural way to thoroughly cleanse all skin types – even skin affected by complicated conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, and acne.¬† Unlike many skin treatments that use harsh chemicals, the micro-massage action is effective, yet gentle enough to be used twice a day.¬† The Clarisonic brush is extremely mild even on very sensitive skin. ¬†Those diagnosed with rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema find that they can use this product with virtually no irritation to the skin.
  • Prepares Skin For Other Products ~ Without proper cleansing, pollutants, oil, and bacteria accumulate on the skin, clogging pores and causing blackheads, blemishes, and dullness. ¬†This may prevent¬†creams, serums,¬†and moisturizers from performing to their fullest potential.¬† Sonic cleansing better prepares your skin for skin care products.¬† Compared to manual cleansing, using the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System allows for up to 61% better absorption of Vitamin C. ¬†Better absorption allows creams, serums, and moisturizers to work their best.


Gently move the brush using small, circular motions.  Use on forehead (20 seconds), nose/chin (20 seconds), and both cheeks (10 seconds each).


  • Prior to the first use, charge the Clarisonic handle for 24 hours.
  • Once a week, remove the brush head and wash the handle using warm soapy water to remove any residue buildup.
  • Replace your Clarisonic brush head every 3 to 4 months.

Stock Your Beach Bag for Summer

Beauty Store Depot has a sale on until July 1 ~ Save 15% on all orders over $25.  That’s a savings of $22.35 on the Mia 2, which I chose because it has 2 speeds.  I like the option of having a low speed.  I’ll let you know what I think of my new Clarisonic after I’ve been using it for a while.  So far I’m liking the sale price because it’s basically like getting a free replacement brush head.
