Cynthia Rowley Beach Sport Kit_angle

Nothing says "I'm more in charge of my accessory coordination than you could ever dream of being" more than blinged out Band-aids. Which is why I love Cynthia Rowley's new beach sport kit, complete with the fashionable cut covers, Neosporin packets and a waterproof pack for your cell. Out in May, this was the latest development in her fashionable partnering with the bandage brand. The first added fashion to function with limited edition dress-up bandages in lace, gold chains, mini-runway models and sequins.

This beach sport kit has everything you need for summer fun, whether it'??s camping, beach-going, hiking, sitting around being extra cool and getting cut by your razor-sharp wit. There are 20 of her surf-inspired bandages with eight colorful designs, ranging from sharks to jellyfish to serene sunsets. The Band-Aids are also 100% waterproof, so they stay securely in place shielding out water, dirt and germs even when they'??re wet. For the beach booboos, go a step further with four Neo-sporin Neo To Go single use packets to help fight infection.

One more comes in a resealable plastic pouch that helps keep you beach essentials, like your cell phone, dry. You can even use your iPhone in the sealed pouch, since it has a clever outline where to speak. How's that for upping the ante on accessorizing?

The Beach Sport Kit is available at for $12.


If eyes are the window the soul, let'??s make sure that you'??re neck isn'??t creepy like lovely silk window treatments, shall we? Although hands can tell your age through age spots and wrinkles, I'??ve always thought that when a woman has a young neck (read: elastic skin, smooth texture, no droop), she can hold onto the youth that her face shows.

I have yet to find any lotion that actually tightens my neck skin. Enter freak out here. Am I destined to have a turkey neck? I'??ve only found neck creams that are very heavy in weight, but light in terms of workload in firming my skin. If I don'??t do something soon, slowly but surely, my neck will become crepey. That'??s right ladies, I could be neck-and-neck with aging.

Until I found mybody'??s Neck-cessity Anti-Aging treatment. This sheer veil of cream is pleasant to smooth on twice a day. It minimizes the appearance of chest creases and wrinkles, while firming and tightening skin. The amazing part? You can actually feel it tightening it. No joke. And that feeling stays with you for hours.

The advanced formulation has key ingredients with impressive sounding names'?¦myR2x, an enhanced retinol complex that aids in retinol transport and metabolism; mySBP-189, a smart biomimetic peptide that helps reset the body'??s process of keratinzation (yet another things that becomes less efficient with age); Idealift, a lipopeptide complex that strengthens skin; and SymWhite 377, a highly potent tyrosinase inhibitor from pine trees that creates radiant skin.

I don'??t care what'??s in it. This stuff is working. Once you'??re done with all of the this-and-the-other-thing ingredient list, you'??re left with tighter skin. Bonus: you can also use this on your hands. Wink-wink. Nudge-nudge. Now we can fool them all.

mybody'??s Neck-cessity Anti-Aging treatment is available at for $125.
