go sleeveless for the holidays!

December 19th, 2012 · 7 Comments

So, here’s the thing: last year at this time, I was settling into my first true southern winter.  Which means, you know: eighty degree temperatures.  Shorts.  Sandals.  Blooming flowers.  And, obviously, sleeveless dresses.

Needless to say, I was *psyched.* I embraced sleeveless holiday dresses like it was my job — and I’m doing the same thing this year! 

But it’s not just a southern thing!  Did you know that six out of ten women are likely to wear sleeveless clothing to a holiday party this year?  There’s something about the holiday season that makes people want to be a little more festive, and what better way to achieve that than a great sleeveless cocktail dress? 

I’ve been using Dove’s Go Sleeveless Soothing Chamomile Deodorant to get ready for all of our holiday parties, and I love the smell and the softness it gives your skin!  It improves your skin in five days with Vitamins E and F plus Dove ¼ moisturizers, so there’s just enough time for you guys to go sleeveless for your holiday parties!  Another perk is 48 hour wetness and odor protection!  Learn more on

And, of course, there are prizes!  Simple Skincare will be randomly selecting 15 winners to receive gift baskets, each of which includes Simple Skincare products and an American Express $50 gift card!  Perfect for a little last-minute holiday shopping.  Plus, every participant will receive a coupon for $2 off any Simple moisturizer!

CooperVision Eye Do Giveaway!

December 13th, 2012 · 2 Comments

This fall, I was so incredibly excited to work with CooperVision to create an awesome series of fashion and beauty videos for their Eye Do It All Challenge — if you haven’t already, check out their Facebook page to see my style and beauty tips there!  And as part of that campaign, CooperVision offered a one-month free trial of contact lenses for anyone who took the Eye Do Challenge.

I hope you guys have all had a chance to try CooperVision contacts (and if you haven’t, you can still enter!) — and now they want to hear from you guys about what you thought!  Just in time for the holidays, they’re giving away an annual supply of contact lenses! 

There are two ways to enter (and yes, you can do both)!

  • “Like” CooperVision and Sugarlaws on Facebook, and leave a comment about why you’re excited to win an annual supply of CooperVision contact lenses!
  • Follow CooperVision and Sugarlaws on Twitter and send out a tweet to both of us with the hashtag #SugarlawsHoliday!

I can’t wait to see your entries — and I hope that you guys love CooperVision contact lenses as much as I do!
