Venus Embrace...Interview with Mama.


As part of the Venus Embrace Razor & Satin Care Passionista Fruit Shave Gel campaign, Belle and I had the opportunity to talk about fashion!
Watch now, as she interviews me about my fashion advice!

But first, a couple of notes:
1. I am no expert on anything "fashion," as evidenced by my lack of make-up and "un-done" hair. (Hey, I'm getting my hair done soon ... cut me some slack.)
2. I really DO love my Venus Embrace! Extra tips on the Venus Embrace here.
3. When did my daughter get so grown-up? And can anyone tell me where the "pause" button for life is? I'd like this time to go just a tad more slowly.

And now...ENJOY! (And no laughing!)






Would you like a shot at winning a $50 Visa gift card? Easy peasy ... just answer this question: What's the best beauty tip you have shared with your daughter to prepare her for the summer? Or share your funniest beauty mishap!

(Venus has some great tips for first-time shavers over here.)

  6. We have hit puberty, it is not fair, I want my baby girl back, you know the one with a baby girl body. We have spent hours talking. I think we have talked mostly about her being true to herself. And we talk about using good products, good face wash, we have not hit the shaving stage. although I bet she would love to. She did try shaving her hair with a pair of scissors. i noticed little hair on the sink regularly. she finally fessed up and I tried hard not to laugh

  27. My biggest beauty mishap was when I tried to highlight my hair at home; It was one of those kits where you pull the hair through the cap with a little crochet needle and someone how I ended up with a boatload of highlights on the left side of my head and very few on the right (I assume because I'm right-handed, it was easier to pull out from the left). I ended up calling my mom to come over and redo the right side for me. It still wasn't even but it was better.

  29. My funniest beauty mishap happened years ago. I was getting ready for work....during a storm. Power went out. No lights in the bathroom as I was finishing getting ready for work and putting on my makeup. I thought...I have done this so many times...I could do it in my sleep! Haha..wrong. My blush and powder foundation where in a container that looked almost the same. I ended up putting my blush on all over instead of the powder! Haha.....I laughed so hard when I got in the car and looked in the rearview mirror!

  39. Comfortable and confident in what you wear is the best tip ever! If I had a nickel for every uncomfortable outfit I wore in the name of fashion...I'd have a lot of nickels...I also have a lot of ridiculous pictures from "fashionable" outfits. Ha! My beauty tip is all about moisturizing. Morning and night!

  46. I think a good tip is to always keep a powder compact handy to wipe away forehead oil, whether it's due to sweat or just plain-old being a teen!

  60. I was so tired of using suntan lotions and really wanted a oil spray mist like product that smelled like coconuts but still offered at least 15 SPF. I found it and bought it and was thrilled, until I had an allergic reaction to it. I was hot pink anywhere I sprayed it and so itchy! This lasted for two days of my vacation and the sun made it burn like I was on fire!!! Was horrible!!!
