Your Mineral Creation - Where You Become the Mineral Designer
(Chicky Lounge)
Submitted at 10/13/2008 7:38:00 AM

Things are getting tough everywhere and it is even more challenging as a business to continue to bring customers cutting edge products at a cost effective price. As the founder, owner, and overall creative mineral designer, I wanted to give our customers something no other mineral company is offering. So I dug deep within my bag plethora of knowledge and decided, "Why not make our customers the designers of their own products?" Thus the birth of " Your Mineral Creations". Beautiful Diva ( will be launching our newest line, " Your Mineral Creation" to the general public November 1st, 2008. What makes our newest product line so fabulous is the fact that we put YOU in the drivers seat. YOU pick your mineral foundation shade: Light, Medium, Tan, or Dark YOU pick your botanical additive: Soy, Green Tea, Ginseng, or Q10 YOU pick your packaging: a sifter jar or dispensing brush YOU pick a name for "Your Mineral Creation" We give you the opportunity to brand "Your Mineral Creation" with a name of your own. Making you a Mineral Designer. "Your Mineral Creation" will be

shipped with a free refill to help you get more for your money. We've introduced our newest line to a small test population and the creative juices are flowing, it turns out, "Your Mineral Creation" is not just for personal use, here is how a few women have already used "Your Mineral Creation": 1. Maria of Puerto Rico ordered a dozen "Your Mineral Creations" naming each product after each of her bridesmaids and gave it as a gift to her wedding party. 2. Darin of North Dakota ordered 55 "Your Mineral Creations" each in a different shade and will a different additive, putting her new wellness business name to the product and used it as a goodie bag giveway during her grand opening. 3. Stacy of Florida, ordered 15 to give to her female staff as an appreciation gift. She used a unique single word on each label to describe each of her staff who is uniquely different.

Just think of the possibilities. Beautiful Diva representatives will soon be hosting Make Your Own Mineral Makeup Workshops across the United States, Canada and Australia - where guests learn how to mix and blend mineral pigments to create their own mineral makeup. As owner of Beautiful Diva, I also will be offering the same workshops for women interested in crafting mineral makeup as a hobby or a business. Learn from the best of the best. If you would like more information or to book a session with a Representative visit or to book Myra for a 2-day mineral makeup workshop call (2 03)6818151.************************** ************** by Myra Roldan, Blogger/Editor At Large Chicky L o u n g e Founder /Owner, Beautiful Diva

We have all been reading and hearing about the various pollutants in our atmosphere and how our earth is doomed unless we do something about it. So why not do your part and help reverse some of the damage we have done. GO GREEN! I know I just made lots of you just take a big gulp. Some don't know where to start and others think that Going Green means making really big changes. Not true. Even the small things count. I've compiled a small list of things you can do to GO GREEN! page 1

A little bit ago, I wrote about one of my favorite products the Beverage CADDi. If you missed it you can read a b o u t i t h e r e , 8/08/caddi-for-your-coffeeanyone.html. I get stopped by people daily asking me about my personal CADDI - which by the way will be my stocking stuffers this year. Sorry gave that one away. Anyways, I have Google alert me anytime there is some news about

"Chicky Lounge" my blog or my newspaper. Today I was alerted and was tickled. There is a networked called, Women who Launch and they did a post called "Members in the News", now I'm not a member (although I've launched more than I care to admit), but Barbara Hranilovich, creator of the Beverage Caddi is and this is what they wrote about my little article: • West Michigan Incubator member Barbara Hranilovich, designer of the unique Beverage CADDi, was written up by Chicky Lounge in a fun and radiantly positive article about the

beverage carrier system that works as a coffee cup sleeve and a coffee purse (sling).

Now take notice, my article was dubbed "fun and radiantly positive". So for the rest of the day I will be floating around with my big head because apparently, I don't suck too much at this writing thing.

Do you know about twitter search?

GREEN! 1 continued from page
It's sort of like a 24 hour a day focus group, a never-ending riff on what people are buzzing about. Don't say I didn't warn you. PS if you use twitter, remember that what you say is not just seen by your few followers. It's seen by anyone who searches. GREEN and do your part: 1. Ditch the Styrofoam cup and use a re-usable cup. If you don't have a cup near by use a paper cup. 2. Are you a bottled water drinker? Don't reuse the bottle, there are some health concerns with that. DO RECYCLE your bottle. 3. Don't print out emails, e-books, GREEN! page 2

Warning: addictive, disheartening, thrilling or banal... often in combination. Visiting twitter search will allow you to track what the anonymous

masses are saying about you, your favorite politicians, your brand, whatever... You can grab an RSS feed of any search you do, so your rss reader will be always updated with what's going on with the buzz on things you care about.

my newsletter - read it online. Only print what you really feel you need to print. Save a tree. 4. Don't Liter! Picture this - you are in your car and you just opened up a candy bar. What to do with the wrapper? Hold it until you get somewhere where there is a garbage can and dispose of it. Don't throw it out your window. 5. RECYCLE, RECYCLE RECYCLE. Not sure what or how to recycle? Check the symbols on your bottles - look for the chasing arrow with a number on your containers. Good rule of thumb, anything with a number 1 or 2 is recyclable. Some of these items include: *Bottles and bottle caps (ok to leave plastic caps screwed on the bottle) *Tubs and lids (i.e., yogurt containers) *Cups and lids *Clamshells (i.e., "to-go" containers from salad bars and restaurants) *Molded packaging *Buckets and flowerpots *Broken toys as long as they do not have metal parts, batteries, circuit boards or wiring. 6. Change the cleaning products you use in your home. No need to spend big bucks, your can visit your local Walmart and find Clorox's new Green Line or Arm and Hammer Green products that are budget friendly and work. 7. Unplug your chargers when you’re not charging you’re your cellphones, PDAs, digital cameras, cordless tools and other gadgets, says the National Resources Defence Council. Keep them unplugged until you need them 8. Restrict high energy consumption to first thing in the morning or after 8:00 p.m. - like washing and drying clothes, ironing, etc. You'll save on your electric bill and you'll be doing your part for our earth. 9. Choose biodegradable alternatives when you have a choice. 10. Choose a laptop - it uses about six times less electricity than a desktop. It's the little things that count. Do y o u Part!************************** ************** by Myra Roldan, Blogger/Editor At Large Chicky L o u n g e Founder /Owner, Beautiful Diva

We The Kings...
(Chicky Lounge)
Submitted at 10/4/2008 4:44:00 AM

Last year, for my 15 year old's (Stephanie) birthday I purchased tickets to a multi-band concert that was going to be held at Toad's Place in New Haven, CT the night of her birthday. We had a great time, I took pictures with all the bands alone and the girls and I took group pictures with band members as well. I have to confess, I'm the biggest kid when it comes to stuff like this. The music was great. We went with one see " Boys Like Girls".

During the concert, I got to meet and chat with Travis the lead singer of an upcoming band, " We the Kings". Travis took a picture with me he was sweet enough to almost kneel for me as he's like 6'4" and I'm all of 5'4". I asked Travis how it felt to be in the presence of a Queen(me) and a bunch of screaming little girls? His answer, "It's amazing, I mean I'm just a goofy kid myself". Fortunate for Travis and his band, goofy kids growup a bit (hopefully not to much) and they find success. I was driving in my car this morning listening to the radio when I

heard, "Check Yes Juliet", by We The Kings on the radio and it was on the Weekend Top 30! You made it Guys,

all your hard work is paying off. I wish you all much success and always remember to be real in all you do. Catch you again when you are back in Connecticut!

Botox and a Cruise

Trip to the Pelvic Spa Anyone?
(Chicky Lounge)

Did you know that you can now go on a cruise and come back looking relaxed and with tighter skin? Yup, it's called a Botox Cruise. Forget Botox Parties - Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has partnered up with Steiner Leisure spa operators to offer BOTOX Cosmetic, Restylane, and Perlane facial treatments in its Mandara-operated spas. Is this safe? According to Dr. James Barber, he feels that Botox can be safely offered on cruise ships so long as it is administered by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, in a sterile environment and at recommended doses. What happens if your ship hits a big wave - oops, sorry, your eyeball will be ok in a few days. Personally, I wouldn't take the chance. One because we are not sure what the long term affects of botox are and second because there is no way someone is

going to come near my face with a needle just for the hell of it. I'll stick with my fine lines and wrinkles - they d e n o t e m y maturity.*********************** ***************** by Myra Roldan, Blogger/Editor At Large C h i c k y L o u n g e Founder /Owner, Beautiful Diva

Who thinks of these things? Aparently, my pelvis may need a visit to the Pelvic Spa. Hmm. hear there are machines involved too - scary. Dr. Lauri Romanzi, a gynecologist who performs pelvic reconstruction surgery, said she came up with the idea for the spa one day while walking by an outlet of BriteSmile, the tooth-whitening chain. She created a medi-spa wholly dedicated to your pelvic fitness called " Phit". Located in the Mecca of New York Manhattan. So what does a Pelvic Spa offer? How about "personal training" for your pelvis for starters. I wonder if you can choose your personal trainer by your personal liking? Pelvic tightening? Is you pelvis - used and abused from child-bearing. You can become almost a virgin again with a pelvic tightening procedure. What's even better you can purchase a gift package for yourself or a friend, just visit the PHIT
