Do Not Want: A Butt Lift in a Box

Butt Lift

Now the Muse is a wobbly sort of girl. She has no problems admitting she’s not a ten, although she reminds herself daily, while staring at herself in the mirror, “wow you are SO a ten”. I don’t actually do that but it makes for great entertainment imagining I do, dontcha think?

Well…anyway. I admit I’m def not a ten but I’m so not seeking a Butt Lift In a Box to get to that ten mark.

Do not want.

The Body Shop LemonAid Campaign & Giveaway

The contest is now closed and a winner has been selected and alerted via email!

Contest has been extended please see my new post by following this link.

I live my life by taking any lemons that come my way and squeezing them into lemon aid. You shouldn’t let anything get you down, you’re alive, you’re healthy, you probably have people that care about you, so what’s stopping you from squeezing those lemons and making some lemon aid with it?

The Body Shop LemonAid Campaign launched today at www.lemonaid.thebodyshop-usa.com where The Body Shop is taking some of life worst lemons such as sex trafficking and raising money for ECPAT USA and the Somaly Mam Foundation (Up To $10,000 will be donated) to help stop this awful crime.

ECPAT International has a global network of organizations committed to stopping the exploitation and trafficking of children for sexual purposes. Through enacting initiatives on local levels as well as providing support and education, ECPAT continues to advocate for children everywhere.

The Somaly Mam foundation was started by its namesake founder, herself a survivor of sexual slavery. After escaping her captors, Somaly Mam began this organization to help support other survivors as they rebuild their lives by providing emotional and economic support. Somaly Mam also creates global awareness raising initiatives to make sure that the issue of children in sexual slavery is not ignored.

I’m sure it sounds surreal to your reality but these crimes are happening everyday and The Body Shop wants to do their part to help put an end to these crimes.

You can help to in five different ways!

LoTree Ruby Clear Cleansing Oil Review

Lotree Cleansing Oil 1

Awww hey! What’s up chicklets?

I’ve had a very busy day and haven’t had a sec to say ‘ello, ‘ello to everyone. Sorries! I’m a bit behind on comments but I’m slowly rolling through them, promise to blather with you soon.

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty slow going due to the crummy weather.  OMG it was like hurricane season in New York this weekend!

Went to see She’s Out of My League on Friday night and now sporting a serious crush on Jay Baruchel, how stupid cute is he?  Also hit up Arlene’s Grocery Saturday Night, did brunch and shopping with my friends Sunday, and sat in front of the tube introducing my friend Martin to the joys of the Inbetweeners in the evening as they had a marathon on Sunday so I Tivo’ed up and rewatched all the episodes with Martin. I’m crushing hard on Blake Harrison, I swear that kid’s idiot routine is brilliance on a stick, you NEED to watch this show if you aren’t already.

Anyway…I also recently discovered that Lotree, my fav Korean brand, is being sold on Sasa. It’s such a great excuse to haul out some of my stash and review for you!

Check out my Lotree Ruby Clear Cleansing Oil Review after the jump!
