On A Budget for the Rest of Us


If you’ve ever felt bummed out that the beauty products you want are just too expensive, or it’s just too confusing to figure out what you need, Glamour editor Andrea Pomerantz Lustig has some tips for you. The beauty expert believes that all women should feel beautiful, and she is offering helpful hints in her new book, How to Look Expensive.

Cleanse: Use a cleanser daily in the morning and before going to bed. Use “cleansers without the drying surfactant (soap) ingredient, sodium lauryl sulfate that do not strip your skin and make even oily skin feel dry.” Try Le Couvent Des Minimes: Rinse-off Cleansing Cream $17

Treat/Moisturize: Apply moisturizer daily in the morning and before going to bed. Pick a cream that has anti-oxidants to replenish and revive the skin. Try Skin & Co. Roma: Truffle Gommage Anti-Aging Face Exfoliating Cream $32

Protect: If your moisturizer does not contain an SPF, make sure to always apply a sunscreen on top of your moisturizer to prevent pre-mature aging – yes, event in the winter! Pop this stick in your purse for all-day, on-the-go protection – Sun Bum: Sunscreen Face Stick SPF 30 $10

By following these suggestions, you can be sure to keep that beautiful skin glowing… so go ahead girl, be gorgeous!

New This Week On DVD:


When Rise of the Guardians came out in theaters last year, our schedules were so crazy that we never had a chance to see it before it was gone, which is rare for our family.   Good thing we didn’t have to wait too too long before it hit DVD form!   It was released last week and it was worth the wait! 

Featuring the voices of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude LawRise of the Guardians is a magical story about the legendary guardians: the Easter Bunny, “North” (aka Santa), the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost.  The guardians come together to defeat villain “Pitch” (aka the Boogey Man) who is threatening to squash the hope and belief of kids all over the world through via “nightmares”. 

Without giving any spoilers away, my favorite part of the movie is the sweet explanation of “why” the Tooth Fairy takes our baby teeth as we lose them and what they do with them!  I also loved the new depiction of Santa, called “North” in the movie – complete with tattoos of “naughty and nice” on each arm.  Not your typical Santa Clause, but fun nonetheless! 

I need to add, if you have younger kids who are sensitive to scary images and story themes, it may be overwhelming at times with Pitch and his “nightmares”.  You may want to take a peek at it by yourself first, to see if it’s something they’ll be able to handle.   But it’s truly a great movie with fully fleshed out characters and some back story as to how they came to be in the positions of “guardians”. 

Rise of the Guardians is available now on DVD & Blu-Ray.  It would make a perfect addition to Easter baskets!
