NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

I recently tested the NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact. This is an all-in-one compact with everything you need for a complete eye look. It includes primer, illuminator, applicator, and complementing shadows.

I received the one for brown eyes. It has four colors: one for all over lid; one highlighter; and two for crease/contour. You can experiment and create lots of beauty looks with the product.
It’s fun and easy to stash in your purse.
It costs less than $5, so you don’t have to make a big investment.

Colorful Helmets for National Bike Month

May is National Bike Month!

If the weather is nice where you live, start taking more bicycle rides–for health and fun–as often as possible.
Specific celebrations include:
Bike to School Day May 9, 2012
Bike to Work Week May 14-18
Bike to Work Day Friday, May 18


Safety should be your first priority when it comes to cycling. Some states have mandatory helmet laws for children, but if your kids are resistant to wearing helmets, try these fun options.

Tail-Wags sells fantastic helmet covers in over 40 designs at

Some of the stylish Sawako Furuno Cycling Helmets can be purchased from

If you don’t want to garner too many compliments, wear a plain helmet–just be sure it fits correctly and will protect your precious head.
Happy cycling!
