Oklahoma Tornado Victims Charity Event

You guys know that I have lived in Oklahoma my whole life. That means that we grow up knowing tornado precautions and what to do when the sirens go off. It also means that when a devastating one comes thru here (*like they have too many times these last two weeks!), we know that we will rebuild and continue to be “Oklahoma Strong”. But we need help and that is where charity and disaster relief services come in.

I know that many of you have wanted to find a way to help, but you are so far away you can’t do anything on the ground here. In fact, I was approached by beauty social site “Pampadour”, (*on which I play a bunch), to find out how they could help. So, we came up with a way that would help people around here, and still have a bit of beauty fun, too. On Tuesday, June 4th, from 8pm to 10pm EST they will donate $3 for every user that signs in or registers to Pampadour.com and connects with me! All of the donations will go directly to the Oklahoma Chapter of the Red Cross, to ensure that the money is used for all of the victims around the OKC metro – of which there are so very many.

So, if you are free on Tuesday night, I encourage you to come connect with me on Pampadour and help the victims of the OK tornados. We’ll also be tweeting about it over on twitter with the hashtag #Pamp4OK, too.

I know many of you have been curious, so, here is a pic of where I was, and work, when the tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma on May 20th, 2013:

Also, this is what we saw before we went into the shelter before the tornado hit:

Thank you for all of your support these last couple of weeks!

The itch you didn’t know you had

Have you ever been perfectly content, everything’s good, then, someone comes up behind you and scratches your back in greeting, or just to be affectionate, and suddenly you are like a dog getting their belly scratched and you are all “I’ll give you 30 minutes to stop that”? I hate and love that at the same time.

I have found out that “dry brush exfoliation” can give me almost the same effect. I had a chance to try the Eight hydrating treatment which is:

  1. Dry Brush body
  2. Have a warm shower and cleanse with Eight Crème Body Wash
  3. Exfoliate and soften with Eight Sugar Scrub
  4. Lightly towel dry and apply Eight Body Moisture

I tried the Ginger Lime line, but they also have a Lavender line. The Ginger Lime line smelled fresh, but not too fruity – I’m sure the Lavender line smells nice, too, but I can’t speak to how floral it smells.

Lemme tell you what they say is in this and why – “Eight Body Moisture is created around eight core ingredients:

  • Aloe Vera: moisture
  • Vitamin E: slows aging
  • Jojoba Oil: promotes new cell growth
  • Evening Primrose Oil: anti-inflammatory
  • Monoi Oil: rehydrates
  • Sweet Almond Oil: natural beauty
  • Emu Oil: anti-aging
  • Apricot Kernel Oil: tones/firms

Other essential ingredients include:

  • Lanolin: moisture
  • Rice Bran Oil: smooth skin
  • Lavender Oil: calms
  • Sunflower Oil: vitamins a b d e
  • Wheat Germ: cell formation
  • Avocado Oil: moisture

I don’t know that I can say that I’ve seen any firming yet, but I can say that all the brushing (once a week – it’s a bit too rough for me more often than that, because I get all aggressive w/ the scratch – yes, I know that’s bad for me. Thx!) and all of the oils in the products that my skin *does* feel super silky. While they all work in conjunction together, if you don’t need as much moisture as all of them at once, each product does a fine job on its own for it’s own job. The range runs from $20 up to $85 for the full treatment kit.

I can’t forget to mention that this product line is from a homegrown Oklahoma girl like me. Vicki Weaver-Payne’s mom worked at Tinker Air Force Base (*over in Midwest City, OK, a suburb of Oklahoma City, OK) in one of the aircraft hangers, causing her skin to be uncomfortably dry. She met a woman with a secret formula for dry skin that she then tweaked to alleviate her skin problems – her own body lotion, just for herself. In fact, Vicki didn’t even know about the formula until she was an adult and had her own skin problems. Vicki then tweaked it herself for 12years before sharing it with the public & Eight Body Moisture was born. So, you know I gotta give some love to a local gal, besides just liking the product on its own. 🙂

Have you guys ever done any dry brushing? Did you like it, if you did?

The 2009 Okie Blog Awards Finals

Ooooooklahoma…where the wind comes sweeping down the plains and where I spout my witticism’s for your (*okay, MY) entertainment. Well, today, it also became the place that I became a finalist for the “Best Single Topic Blog” in the 2009 Okie Blog Awards.That’s right – I’m a finalist in awards that celebrate Oklahoma’s creative talent. I know, right? I joke, but I am sincerely honored to be nominated in this (*Just practicing for my award speech – Ha!). You guys know that I am proud to be from Oklahoma and that I can bring just a taste of it to all over the world, to my fab readers all over this round globe. And, while I know all of you would be casting a ballot for me, voters are limited to Oklahoma bloggers – we vote on our own. So, if any of you guys happen to be one, feel free to cast me a vote and if you aren’t, you can still take a look around at some of the other great people we have representing this great state. We’re a pretty talented and varied group of folks.
