Things We Love: Sally Hansen Nail Strips

Sally knows that nails are the best accessory. Now, Sally makes it easy to get a salon effect any time, any place. It wears like nail polish because it IS nail polish. No dry time, so you’re ready to go. With 40 different patterns and colors, there’s something for everyone. It lasts up to ten days and removes easily with nail polish remover. All you need to do is peel, apply, file, and go!

Each kit includes 16 nail polish strips, a cuticle stick, a mini file/buffer, and instructions for convenient at-home application.

The CUE girls decided to try the product to see for ourselves and the results were fabulous!





Things We Love: Starbucks Refreshers

If you live in New York City, then chances are you’re probably a coffee drinker. Well, good news to all my fellow caffeine addicts out there! Starbucks has come out with a new line of drinks called Starbucks Refreshers. The girls at CUE were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of this drink and we fell in love! It’s a new kind of coffee that might cause you a bit of shock. The drinks are made from unroasted 100% arabica beans and real fruit juice that gives you a natural boost of energy. The drinks also contain real pieces of fruit. The best part? None of the drinks are more than 100 calories and you get 50% or more of the daily value of vitamin C per serving.  Starbucks Refreshers come in two flavors: Very Berry Hibiscus and Cool Lime.

You may think it doesn’t get much better than that, but it does. Of course you can order it at any Starbucks store, but you can also take it on the go with VIA Refreshers. And if you’re really in a rush, you can pick it up in a can from any Starbucks or at select grocery stores.

My personal favorite is the Very Berry. Check them out at your local Starbucks and let us know your favorite flavor!



Things We Love: Lulu B.

Nothing is better than getting together with your girlfriends and indulging in guilt-free wine and cocktails. That’s why we love Lulu B!

Lulu B has quite the wine selection for you and your girlfriends to sample including: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pink Sparkling Moscato, Pink Moscato, and my personal favorite White Moscato. In March 2011, their Pinot Noir won gold medal & best buy from the Beverage Testing Institution which described the wine as “Beautifully floral huckleberry and spicy cherry sauce aromas and flavors with a soft, dry- yet-fruity medium body and a breezy apple skin, incense and nut accented finish. Impressive and delicious.”

They have also just introduced Lulu B Fabulous Guiltless Cocktails and at only 48 calories, who wouldn’t want to satisfy that sweet tooth with a chocolate martini?! Not a chocolate fan? No worries, there is something for everyone. Try their margarita, cran cosmo, or mojito that all average at 40 calories per serving. They use natural flavors from real fruits and natural sweeteners to keep calories and carbs down and your spirits up!

So grab your friends, pick up some Lulu B and tell us what your favorite wine or cocktail is!

Things We Love: BITE Beauty

We are hooked on this new line of natural products from BITE Beauty. Bite Beauty is a collection of lip products designed for today’s woman, fusing alluring color with the age-defying benefits of powerful antioxidants. Derived from natural and food grade ingredients, Bite is beauty that’s better for you.

Ranging from matte to creamy to sheer shades in every hue, from modern nudes to provocative plums, Bite Beauty offers an option
for every occasion.  They also offer a range of buildable coverage, from a semi-sheer balm to a dramatic, matte cream.
Women apply lipstick an average of five times a day. Lips are licked, lipstick is absorbed. That’s why Bite believes lipstick should be
good enough to eat.
With a focus on lips, Bite Beauty proves you don’t have to sacrifice performance for a product made from nature. Bite’s luxurious
feel comes from organic shea and fruit butters, without the use of polybutenes and petroleum byproducts. All of the colorants that
make Bite so richly pigmented are food grade and made with entirely natural ingredients.
Several of the products contain concentrated whole super fruits, such as acai, cranberry, blueberry and pomegranate to protect,
nourish and condition skin. So delicious, you’ll want to take a bite.

Don’t just take my word for it . . . Try it out!!
Bite Beauty is available in select Sephora stores and
