Island Beauty featuring Clumps of Mascara



While watching "Lost" online a few weeks ago, my thoughts drifted to beauty products. Let's say all of my basic needs ( food, water, shelter) are covered. What beauty products would I bring with me to a deserted island? What if I could only bring seven things? I would get an unlimited supply of these seven items, but I could only bring seven beauty items. What would I pick?

I posed this question to some of my favorite beauty bloggers and the answers were informative, thought provoking and funny! "Island Beauty" will be a Wednesday staple here on HomeSpaGoddess.com for the next few months.

Brittany, the beauty behind the Clumps of Mascara beauty blog, is this week's Island Beauty. Here is her "Island Beauty Shopping List":

1. Olive oil, great for the skin, hair, lips and sautée-ing some coconuts. HA!
2. Tea tree oil. Good for the scalp and pimples.
3. Castille soap. Good for a shampoo, face cleanser and make-up remover (can you tell I love multi-uses products?)
4. Clinique's UV Response Face SPF 50. Definitely gonna need skin protection.
5. Banana Boat Ultra Defense SPF 80. How 'bout all over protection?
6. DentaBurst. I'm sorry but fresh breath is SO a must.
7. Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Bronze. A quick swipe on the lids and cheeks and I'm ready for a luau! Hopefully I'm stranded with some other beauty obsessed folx and I could just borrow some of their items. Heheheeee.


Thanks Brittany for sharing your list!

Olympic Update!!!


I'll be delivering you Olympic updates every day and suggesting some of the less popular sports you should check out:)

Today I suggest you take a closer look at Women's Canoe/Kayak. There are Whitewater and Flatwater competitions (I learned that means fast water and slow water). You can learn more about the team here.

Info from NBCOlympics.com

You might think the last thing these ladies want to do is soak in a bubble bath (more water?) but what better way is there to soothe those aching muscles than a relaxing soak in the tub. I think they would enjoy Philosophy's Coconut Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath. The Sephora website describes this as a "tropical, coconut-scented, super bubbly shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath." Click the link or picture to learn more.

Olympic Update!!!


I'll be delivering you Olympic updates every day and suggesting some of the less popular sports you should check out:)

Here are some sports your should take a closer look at:

Women & Men's Beach Volleyball

The U.S. qualified the maximum of two men's and two women's beach volleyball teams. Three of the four women were medalists in 2004 and all of the men are making their Olympic debut.

Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh are the reigning world and Olympic champions, and enter Beijing as the favorites to repeat. Elaine Youngs won a bronze medal at the Athens Games, but now is teamed with Nicole Branagh, who is making her Olympic debut. Youngs and Branagh are medal contenders. Read more about the team here.

On the men's side, Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers are the reigning world champions and gold medal favorites, but both are making their first trip to the Olympics. The second U.S. men's team is Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal, both Olympic rookies and outside medal contenders. Read more about the team here.

Info from NBCOlympics.com


These teams need to moisturize after a long day in the sun. Fresh Milk Body Lotion 10 oz Nectarine Milk would be the perfect end to a long day in the sun. The Sephora site says "The high quantities of milk proteins in Milk Formula Body Lotion coupled with moisturizing shea butter and vitamins A, D & E, give a comforting effect to the skin, leaving it glowing and soft. Subtly scented, this lush body lotion is perfect for both men and women." Click on the picture or link to learn more:)

Island Beauty featuring Bionic Beauty



While watching "Lost" online a few weeks ago, my thoughts drifted to beauty products. Let's say all of my basic needs ( food, water, shelter) are covered. What beauty products would I bring with me to a deserted island? What if I could only bring seven things? I would get an unlimited supply of these seven items, but I could only bring seven beauty items. What would I pick?

I posed this question to some of my favorite beauty bloggers and the answers were informative, thought provoking and funny! "Island Beauty" will be a Wednesday staple here on HomeSpaGoddess.com for the next few months starting today:)

Jami, the beauty behind the Bionic Beauty beauty blog, is this week's Island Beauty. Here is her "Island Beauty Shopping List":

"Certainly sunblock would be my top choice- right now my favorite for face is C.O. Bigelow's SPF 15 Extra-Light Oil Free Face Lotion, and for body Ocean Potion's SPF 45 Anti-aging sunblock. I love the creamsicle scent!

Next, I'd really like to stay clean, so I'll be practical and choose Herbaria's Jojoba Shampoo bar. It can be used for washing my face, hair and body (and it smells delightful!). And I'll take along the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist. This moisturizing spray prevents tangles, conditions hair and can be used as a spritz-on lotion for body!

I'd also pack pure Tea Tree Oil. It's another item that can be used a multitude of ways: helps to heal blemishes and other skin nasties, place a few drops in water for a disinfecting cleaning spray, it can help clean cuts and scrapes, keeps away bugs, and so much more.

My Lip Stuff lip balms. They have tints and balms in hundreds of scents and they are all-natural. You can even use them on your hands and cuticles for extra moisture!

A Venus razor with unlimited blade refills. I can keep my skin soft and smooth and if necessary, the blades could be disassembled for cutting vines, hair cuts, etc. Hey, you gotta plan for everything, right? ;-)"


Thanks Jami for sharing your list!

Olympic Update!


I'll be delivering you Olympic updates every day and suggesting some of the less popular sports you should check out:)

Here are some sports your should take a closer look at:

Women's Badminton
On May 13, the U.S. women's badminton team was named as Eva Lee and Mesinee "May" Mangkalakiri were announced as Olympic qualifiers. Lee will actually participate in singles and women's doubles. Mangkalakiri will serve as Lee's women's doubles partner -- both are making their first Olympic appearances. Read more about the team here.

Women's Basketball
The first nine members of the 2008 U.S. Olympic women's basketball team were announced May 31, and the final three were named July 10. The squad is made up of WNBA players in the USA Basketball program. Team USA qualified for the Olympics by winning the 2007 FIBA Americas tournament in Chile. Read more about the team here.

Info from NBCOlympics.com


These teams need to show their hands some love after a long day of competition, don't you think? A jar of Carol's Daughter Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure In A Jar 2 oz should do the trick. This exfoliant is formulated to smoothe and soothe rough, dry, calloused hands, elbows, and feet, resulting in a fragrant, refreshing, cooling effect. Click the link or picture to learn more.
