Looking Forward With @FORD 2014 #UNMINIVAN

One of my all time favorite highlights of the Ford Trend Conference this year was the launch of the Unminivan!

 It is such an amazing idea and campaign that I really felt like this car was made for me.   Every year there are numerous highlights during at packed 72 hours with the Ford team in Detroit and this year was no different.  It was amazingly well organized, informative and one of my favorite press trips of the year.   The organizers always made sure we had plenty to eat, drink, tweet about, drive and even provided us with sunscreen on track day.  What more can you ask for!

The #UNMINIVAN is about making your unconventional life into your own unique spin. It is a 6 seater but you define what your family looks like and what you do!  It can work well in suburbs, cities and unique boroughs!  It is not about the white picket fence and your 2 kids and perfect lawn! It is about making the Transit Connect work for your life, small business and lifestyle.

It is so cute, incredibly spacious, with moonroof, additional storage space and convertible seats. This passenger seats has ‘stadium seating’ and comes in all sorts of amazing colors. This car is extremely reasonable in price and comes with all the bells and whistles too. Road trip anyone?

We got a chance to personalize and build our own derby car and race them!  Here is my pina car, zooming past you!

What is your ultimate #unminivan adventure?



Carmex Strawberry Protecting Lipbalm

The beauty product that I have the most of is definitely for the lips!  I have hundreds of lipsticks, lip balms, lip gloss in every form imaginable.

Strawberry Nights

I am so happy to find my favorite product CARMEX come a convenient and awesome stick form and in strawberry flavor!  It is by far one of the best lip balms on the market. It does not have a wax feel. You feel refreshed, minty immediately. It is protective, moisturizing and does not make your lips more chapped.  It is the prefect summer accessory for the beach.

Strawberry Stick

We made our Carmex stick formula extra-protective against the elements. Strawberry Stick provides broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sun protection and up to 80 minutes of water resistance. All that, with a pleasant strawberry flavor.

  • Our formula adds petrolatum because it aids moisturization and creates a long-lasting water barrier
  • Formulas with cocoa seed butter help moisturization.
  • Our stick formula has staying power thanks to candelilla wax.

Disclosure: I’m participating in the Break Up with Your Makeup Blogger Contest Sponsored by Galderma Laboratories, L.P.

Recently, I have been trying to break up with Makeup – Concealer and foundations mostly. If you walk around NYC, you will notice that most women are barefaced!  They do wear eye make up and maybe a touch of BB cream but foundation is way too heavy for this summer heatwave. The key to good skin is radiance, evenness and no red spots. I’m lucky to have never experienced symptoms of rosacea, but many of my close friends have. Rosacea is a treatable, chronic inflammatory skin condition and one of the most common symptoms is persistent facial redness. It’s estimated that 16MM Americans are affected by the condition.

Unfortunately, not many people know it is treatable and instead cake on the makeup to conceal the redness. There is a brand new product on the market now called Mirvaso, the only FDA-approved treatment for the persistent redness of rosacea.  Mirvaso is hosting this sweepstakes to raise awareness of the treatment, encouraging people to Break Up with Your Makeup. Mirvaso works fast, providing same-day results that last up to 12 hours before the redness returns, leaving users red-carpet ready!

If you would like to treat your skin and win this Cetaphil Collection – Tweet or IG @HEYDOYOU your bareface with no makeup! (Can be DM)
Good luck!
