Combat "Allergy Face" with Zyrtec

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrtec for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I use to think I was immune to allergies but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve had to face the cold, hard facts that I really am not immune to it anymore. My eyes get watery and red then my nose gets runny and suddenly I have Allergy Face. I learned I’m not alone, a whopping 96% of women suffer from allergies. Here are a few other interesting facts I wanted to share:

For Goodness Grape's Lip Survival Collection for Healthy Lips

Lip balm is the ultimate beauty gateway drug. You start out with lip balm, picking up every flavor imaginable along the way. Banana lip balm? Check. Chocolate lip balm? Double check. Then you start picking up tinted lip balms here and there and before you know it, you have 25 tinted balms that all give you the perfect “YLBB” (your lips but better) look because you can’t help yourself. The last stop on this lip balm train is exfoliation. You can wear lip balm all damn day, it still doesn’t mean you’ll have smooth, baby soft lips. You need a little help to get you there and these exfoliators are just what you need. Honestly, I still get a little giddy when I see a new one come out. I have to have it! I’m so obsessed, I’ve started making my own for fun, I’m a nerd. 😉

With all of that said, there’s a line that completely understands our obsession with lip balm and lips in general; For Goodness Grape. Lisa, aka the Lip Balm Queen and founder, created the line because she loves lip balm and is passionate about natural ingredients. She started out on Etsy and sold over 8,000 items there but wanted to reach more people so she started her own website. Her Lip Survival Collection for Healthy Lips is a great way to see what For Goodness Grape is all about.

CND Vinylux Weekly Polish

cnd-vinylux-bottles

I love gel manicures oh so, so, so much but I have to admit that they are not the best thing for my nails. I love the coat of armor they give my nails, and of course the zero-dry time. Being an impatient gal, not having to sit around and wait for my nails to try is a huge plus. Not to mention the 2-weeks and then some wear time. It is a bit of a vicious cycle because I remove my mani, my nails are left a little thin and weak but then I want to run out and get another gel mani just to make up for it. Am I alone here?

When I first started reading about the new CND Vinylux line, I was instantly on board. It is their new line of longer wearing nail color that gives you a week of wear and durability without UV/LED lamps. CND actually says the top coat actually toughens over time with increased exposure to light. Added bonus? Practically all your favorite Shellac shades are now available in this formula. There is really nothing to like here, right?
