Holiday, celebration...come together in every nation

Hey Ladies,
Everyone LOVED Iman...I'm so thrilled! She's a fabulous lady, and I'm tickled to muerte that she agreed to shake her considerable beauty with us for a week. I'm living for all of your enthusiastic responses, so much so that I'm moved to holla back a bit...

Ghettogeisha: Hope my silly beauty blather helps you recover from your tonsilectomy!
Diva: Made me weep, you knowing THE ACCIDENTAL DIVA by heart..
Funkdeeva: I hear you on the Flori Robers, girl. Ew?
Struggling Princess: Good luck, baby--here's hoping you find your fairy.
Richell: And anyone who appreciates my literary tastes is alright with me.
Todd: A "gifts for your wife" list would be cute, but sugar, you're my only straight male reader.
DivaSoulSistaHuneyChil: Totally feeling your new blog! []

Back to business. On Monday, me and my adorable hubby will be off on our first wedding anniversary European vacation (Paris, Cannes, Sevilla & Barcelona!!!) for two weeks, so this will be my last post for a minute. I'll be thinking of you...will you be thinking of me? Anyway, today I'm running last-minute errands, and my Adam has the nerve to say to ME, of all people, "oh, can you stop by the drugstore and pick up some generic products for us, like lotion and sunblock and stuff?" GENERIC?? Hello? I'm going on a fabulous, jetsetting holiday--clearly my beauty products must support the moment! Here, I've listed my top five summer vacation beauty picks. Glamorous, pampering and essential, every one.

sending you loving kisses from the south of france,

1.) REDKEN UV RESCUE HAIR PRODUCTS: If you're not rocking one of those Joan Crawford turbans on the beach, please protect fragile, highlighted, relaxed, or generally dry hair with Redken's ingenious "sunscreen-for-your-strands" line. If you're just laying out, slather on the nourishing UV Rescue Protective Oil, but if you're jumping in the pool or ocean, apply the UV Rescue Brunette Gard color-saving swim cream to keep combat hair-dulling chlorine and saltwater. And post-sunworshipping, wash that sun, sand and surf right out of your hair with UV Rescue After-Sun Shampoo. Fabulous, and they all smell vaguely beachy.
2.) KIEHLS ESSENTIAL TRAVEL GEAR SET: The beauty equivalent of an all-inclusive resort, this seriously chic, travel-sized kit includes Vital Sun Protection SPF 30 Lotion, Mango Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser, Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (doubles as ultra-rich body cream), and Kiehls' star product, Lip Balm Number 1 (great for sun-chapped lips).
3.) PETER THOMAS ROTH ALOE-CORT CREAM: Go get this immediately, if you're a person prone to bug bites or sunburns. This unsmelly anti-itch cream contains aloe vera, hydrocortisone and vitamin E--so soothing, so worth the price.
4.) LIPPMAN COLLECTION NAIL POLISH IN CORAL RED: There's no point in breaking out your bust-boosting Malia Mills bikini, those oversized Dior shades or your Giuseppe Zanotti beaded wedges if your toes look crazy. Bring out your inner "Palm Bitch" with this deliciously juicy, fruit punch shade of coral-red.
5.) PHILOSOPHY SENORITA MARGARITA SALT SCRUB: Actually, this should've gone first. Before baring an inch of skin on your vacay, make sure its baby's-butt-smooth, supple, and totally ash-free. This lushly decadent salt scrub does the job--and the margarita scent gets you feeling all tropical!

Tia congrats and have fun. I look forward to reading your book. I'd love to send you mine as well. Paris is my dream spot, possibly in 2006, I'm praying. Once you get back please share the hot spots :)

For any of you out there who haven't yet picked up Magical Starsign, what are you waiting for? I'll admit that I'm still a bit miffed over the US not getting the first Magical Vacation game on the Gameboy Advance, maple story mesosbut I guess I can forgive and forget since we did at least get the sequel in Magical Starsign. On the other hand, playing Magical Starsign and seeing how fantastic it is just makes me now want Magical Vacation even more. dofus kamasSo there, now I'm mad again. Seriously, if you're looking for an outstanding old-school RPG experience with one of the coolest art styles ever seen in an RPG, check out Magical Starsign. It's everything a great RPG should be. The only gripe I have is that the experience ended too quickly. So now I either want Magical Vacation for the Gameboy Advance, or another sequel. One or the other! NOW!

Now here's a game that I discovered by sheer accident. Having put off purchasing a Japanese Playstation 2 console for about as long as I possibly could, I finally broke down and bought one after seeing this game in a YouTube video. I had seen mentions of it several times, world of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingeverquest 2 goldeq2 platfinal fantasy 11 cheap gilbuy ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy xi gilmaple story mesosmaplestory mesosdofus kamaskamas dofusrunescape moneybut for some reason I never took the time to actually do some research on the game. After seeing a link to the YouTube video I decided to at least give the game a look and after the brief three minute video, maplestory mesolotro goldlotr goldlord of the ring goldrunescape goldrunescape moneysilkroad goldbuy silkroad golddofus kamaskamas dofuswarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyeve iskeve online iskarchlord goldI was sold and surfed directly over to eBay where I found a rather expensive mint condition Playstation 2 release. Of course I also had to head over to Play-Asia to pick up that long-awaited import Playstation 2 console as well.Mushihime-sama is a very unique manic shooter, that much will be completely evident from the moment you begin playing the game. Although Cave developed the game, it's very different from anything else they've done up until this release. buy archlord goldstar wars galaxiesswg creditsCheap warhammer goldrunescape itemsworld of warcraft goldwow power levelcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingbuy wow goldcheap ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy gilMaple Story Mesosmaple story accountmaplestory MesosLOTRO Goldlord of the rings goldLOTR GoldInstead of taking control of a space ship, you'll instead take on the role of a beautiful violet-haired princess riding atop her trusty beetle. Yes, you read that right; It's a girl riding a bug. The game play shares some similarities with other Cave shooters in the way you can fire a spread shot by tapping the fire button or shoot of a concentrated blast by holding down the fire button. Of course this concentrated blast will also slow your ship's movement speed way down. runescape powerlevelingrunescape goldArchLord goldarchlord powerlevelingarchlord itemsflyff penyaflyff cheapflyff moneyWarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldEverQuest 2 goldeq2 platThis Playstation 2 port of the arcade title features some absolutely outstanding sprite-based visuals for your viewing pleasure, but as good as the eye candy is throughout the game, it's the soundtrack that will really knock your socks off. There are some of the best musical tracks ever to grace a shoot 'em p in the game and you'd be hard-pressed to find a bad musical piece in the entire game. If you can appreciate something a little different, not to mention a game with some of the most brutal end of level bosses ever seen in a shooter, you should give Mushihime-sama a look. It's almost reason enough to break down and buy an import PS2 console all by itself.
