Lip Therapy with @ownproducts

Own is a bio-activating skin care company who use natural ingredients. Based in San Francisco, they have products for acne, sun care, & anti-aging.

(nighttime lip therapy)

I’ve been using their Nighttime Lip Therapy but I do have a confession to make…I don’t just use it at night and rather, I use it throughout the day. At first I put it on before bed but I never picked it up as a routine so I just use it when I feel the need. It’s really hydrating and it smells soo good! Since I use this whenever I should try their other lip therapy products…

(day lip treatment, nighttime lip therapy, plump hydration lip therapy – true mint, plump hydration lip therapy – cinnamon bark, plump hydration lip therapy – chili pepper)

The Nighttime Lip Therapy is supposed to plump your lips & I haven’t really seen results for that. That’s about the only negative comment I have about this product. As for the other ingredients, I definitely feel the shea butter and glycerin that hydrates my lips. I also like the roller-ball application – mess free!

It’s convenient, affordable ($9.99), has natural ingredients, and my lips stay hydrated long after. I do recommend this product – just not for those who are looking to plump their lips!

It looks like you can buy some of their products at a local Duane Reade in NYC. If you can’t find it in other stores you can shop online on their website.

Need a Getaway? Book a @DogVacay

March 1, Los Angeles, CA – Dog Vacay (http://www.dogvacay.com/), the online marketplace that matches dog owners in need of pet-care services with amazing qualified animal caregivers, launches today in Los Angeles and San Francisco. With Dog Vacay’s new service to find dogs local homes to stay when their owners are away, dog owners who travel are no longer forced to choose between a caged kennel or burdening a friend with the responsibility of pet-sitting.

Whether looking for a cozy one-bedroom for a Chihuahua or a 10-acre ranch for a Greyhound, Dog Vacay is the ideal solution for dog lovers searching for the right service at the right price. Home-based dog boarding can cost half the price of kennel boarding, and it’s a better experience for the dog. Dog Vacay’s comprehensive community of pre-qualified pet care providers on a user-friendly platform revolutionizes what was a typically cumbersome experience for dog owners.

Founded by a husband and wife team, Aaron Hirschhorn and Karine Nissim Hirschhorn, Dog Vacay was inspired by the desire to find a real home for dogs, so that their boarding experience is as much a vacation as their owner’s. The goal is for dog owners to feel good about dropping off their dogs for boarding, because they know they are leaving them in capable hands of fellow pet owners who will treat them with the same level of love and care as they give their own dogs.

Dog owners can sign up on DogVacay.com and book services with the peace of mind that comes with experienced hosts, photo updates, 24/7 support, and insurance coverage. In addition to boarding services, users can also find dog walkers, trainers, day-care, pet-sitting (in their own home), and other unique services like pet massage by calling the Dog Vacay concierge.

Pet care providers can sign up for a free listing and enjoy the benefits of a nationwide marketing campaign to dog owners actively looking for boarding and care solutions. Hosts are a high-quality mix of professional pet-sitters with training, and dog lovers who have extensive experience caring for man’s best friend. The platform gives hosts complete control, from setting their own rates, deciding what dogs to host, and managing scheduling and credit card payments.

 

Hosts are vetted on multiple factors including user reviews, social network connections, online training, and interviews directly by Dog Vacay staff. For many hosts, such as retirees, professionals with flexible work-at-home schedules, or stay-at-home moms with dogs of their own, Dog Vacay presents the opportunity to make additional income doing what they already love, taking care of dogs.

 

“Dog Vacay inspires more than a dog-sitting placement service, it’s a community where the dedicated dog owner can find affordable, customizable and convenient ways to care for their best friend. Our company motto is ‘Why should humans have all the fun?’ because creating positive experiences for the dog is our mission,” said Aaron Hirschhorn, co-founder and CEO of Dog Vacay.

 

“Vacations were always overshadowed with the guilt of leaving our dogs, Rocky and Rambo, in a caged kennel where they may not get the attention they need. We believed there was a better way of caring for dogs, so we tested out the concept for Dog Vacay in our own home, and before we knew it, we had more clients than we could handle and decided to launch the Dog Vacay platform,” said Karine Nissim Hirschhorn, co-founder of Dog Vacay.

“Dog Vacay is a new way of solving an old problem that plagues every dog owner when they need to leave their pet for an extended period of time. Americans spend nearly $10 billion on pet boarding and other pet services, and yet it’s a process filled with anxiety because the majority of people’s only option is to cage their dog at a kennel. With the introduction of Dog Vacay, pet owners finally have a practical personalized solution to their pet care needs using the best of the social web – an engaged marketplace community layered over social network verifications and user reviews to pair dogs with caring qualified hosts. By establishing a trusted community of dog lovers, it’s inevitable the site will roll out other unique products and services,” said Michael Jones, CEO of Science, Inc., an investor and Board Member of Dog Vacay.

Additional highlights include:

  • Host qualification verifications – Social media endorsements and user reviews; Dog Vacay interviews and background checks; professional certifications like pet first aid / CPR, and medical boarding. Facebook Connect allows you to see sitters with whom you have mutual friends.
  • Insurance and medical care – Full insurance covering the dog (up to $25K) for a variety of emergencies. Hosts are offered additional insurance options at a reduced group rate if they don’t have an existing policy.
  • Partnership with VCA Animal Hospitals – Emergency pet care (if necessary) will be provided through a preferred partnership with VCA Animal Hospitals, the largest network of free standing veterinary hospitals in the country.
  • Regular status updates – Pet-sitters send regular photo and video updates via email or MMS to the clients, which can then be shared with the Dog Vacay community and across social networks.
  • Peace of mind – Dog Vacay understands that sometimes pictures, testimonials, verifications, reviews, and recommendations are not enough — sometimes you just want to meet someone the old fashioned way before leaving your dog. After users book their stay, they can arrange for an in-person “meet & greet” before committing.
  • Affordable – With Dog Vacay’s hosts setting their own prices, you have the option of finding a large variety of rates that won’t add up to more than your actual vacation.
  • Fun for all – Dogs have the comfort of a home environment, which is an easier transition for them than a loud, caged facility and it’s perfect for dog owners who aren’t comfortable giving someone keys to their home.

Dog Vacay is a community marketplace where dog lovers come together to provide personalized care for their pets. The revolutionary service matches qualified local sitters with individual dogs’ needs – whether you want a one-bedroom apartment for your Chihuahua or a 10-acre ranch for your Greyhound, Dog Vacay provides the best host and environment for your dog. Users can book stays for their pets with confidence and peace of mind – The Dog Vacay Guarantee includes pet insurance, emergency veterinary care, 24/7 customer support, and photo updates. The service is currently available in Los Angeles and San Francisco and will soon expand nationwide.

Youngblood Cosmetics – Tangelo Lipstick

Youngblood-Cosmetics-Tangelo

I recently received the @ybcosmetics’ newest lipstick from their Spring collection. It’s a gorgeous redish, orangey shade called Tangelo. Right when I saw the color, I knew I had to try it. The lipstick is described to be sheer but buildable and this is very true. Below are swatches of the super spring-appropriate color! (p.s. please don’t mind my unfinished face and brows 🙂 )

Once over, then blot

Twice over

I prepped my lips by scrubbing them then applying coconut oil and letting it absorb as I applied the rest of my makeup. I, then, dabbed a smidge of concealer on my lips and around the lip line to cancel out any redness and to create a canvas for the lipstick. After I got the color to where I wanted it to be, I applied a bit more concealer around the lip line with a tiny brush to create clean crisp lines. Because I didn’t have a lip liner that matched this lipstick nor did I want to throw off the true color of the lipstick, the concealer really helped keep the lipstick on my lips while also staying in the lines without bleeding out throughout the day.

If you’re as obsessed with bright, bold lip colors like I am, I definitely suggest giving Tangelo a try. It’s so different and it might take a second to get used to since orange isn’t the typical lip color. DON’T be put off by the bright bullet though, as you can see from my photos, its really not overwhelmingly bright as long as you don’t apply too many layers. You can pick it up and add it to your spring wardrobe through their website and other retailers 🙂

xo, June
