Welcome Spring with A Natural, Fruity Fragrance!

lavanila spring spritz

It’s finally the first day of SPRING!!!! Get ready for warmer weather with a fresh new scent from one of our favorite fragrance brands – Lavanila! With invigorating scents like Vanilla Lemon and Vanilla Grapefruit (my personal favorite!) you can at least pretend it’s spring, even thought it really doesn’t feel like it quite yet!!!!!

Not only does Lavanila create luscious and enjoyable scents, but they work them into healthy products like Healthy Deodorant that is aluminum free and luxurious Body Butter that deeply nourishes skin with natural ingredients.

Not sure which scent to choose? Don’t pick one, get three spring scents in one convenient Rollerball Trio for just $39!

Now excuse me while I go indulge in some Vanilla Grapefruit fragrance….

New Natural Brand “be Delectable” from Cake Beauty

be Delectable

be Delectable is a new collection of bath & body products from Cake Beauty that will be sold at Kohl’s stores across the USA and online at kohls.com.

Made with all natural ingredients, these uniquely formulated bath and beauty products come in some very decadent scents including Strawberry & Cream, Lemon & Cream, Coconut & Cream, and Vanilla & Cream. Of course, the sweet packaging makes these products a bit irresistible! Choose from body polish, body wash, body mist, hand cream and body lotion.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the Coconut & Cream products and I have to say, my entire family fell in love. My almost 7 year old daughter is obsessed with everything cupcakes, so naturally, she was immediately smitten upon seeing the cute bottles and graphics. My son who is almost 4 years old, loves anything coconut so he was eager to try the lotion. (He LOVES putting lotion on his feet.) My husband, who usually doesn’t like coconut, surprisingly has been using the hand cream every single night. Of course, I am happy with all the products and could never resist anything coconut scented either. We all love coconuts!

The part I like the best about this new line is that on top of smelling absolutely heavenly, it’s made with all natural ingredients. Be Delectable is as good for your skin as for the environment. Their luxurious formulas are never tested on animals and are made with up to 95% natural products. Best of all, they are free of Parabens, Sodium Chloride, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, GMOs, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Gluten and Triclosan. Yay!

Be sure to look for be Delectable products next time you are in Kohl’s or head over to kohls.com. Good luck picking just ONE scent to try! I think you are going to want to try all four decadent scents…

Products range in price from $10 – $14. Find out more at CakeBeauty.com

Viva is fresh and unexpected. A sexy daring blend of notes that brings out the duality of a woman. The Viva woman is powerful, yet seductive. She lives life by her own rules.

With a testimonial like that, it’s hard not to add this fragrance to my wish list! Viva by Fergie will launch February 2013, and be available exclusively through your Avon representative. To find a representative near you, please call 1-800-FOR-AVON or visit www.avon.com.
