Fabulous Virtual Make-Overs For Photos! April 17, 2010

Make-over your favorite digital photos! Let’s be honest here: Being a woman is just so darn expensive! Our beauty regimen can get quite costly and my all-natural beauty wants & needs are becoming addictive! But our beauty product routine is not something that we women can just quit cold-turkey. I’ve never seen a pack of gum to lessen my desire for anti-aging foundations, powders, and bronzers, and I’ve never been able to find a “reduce-the-cravings-for-mascara-patch.” All in all, I don’t think that we women should ever have to cut back or give up our special girl-things that make us look and feel good. But I do, however, think we need to be a little more creative and think outside the box with new solutions for inexpensive beauty alternatives.

So, how can we save some serious cash-flow and still feel ultra-glamorous? Two words, my friends: Virtual Makeup. Yes, physical makeup is so overrated! What really counts is looking great in our photos. We may slap on a pair of old jeans and beach sandals to go to grab a bite to eat and run a few errands, but do we post these casual, greasy hair-in-a-ponytail and no makeup photos on our Myspace or Facebook profile? No way! Only our best looking mug-shots end up being the sacred Profile Pic! With all the ex-boyfriends and old competitive girlfriends out there in social networking cyber space, there’s no chance we’ll upload our every-day, sweats, T-shirt, and a few zits pics! But with virtual makeup, we can save money and transform our regular pics into gorgeous, professional-looking head shots! Virtual makeup allows us to make easy, natural-looking edits to our photos, so that we can whiten our teeth, remove pimples, get rid of wrinkles, airbrush photos and look ultra-fabulous for pennies!

Digital Scrapbooks and More (www.DigitalScrapbooksandMore.com) makes instantly downloadable photo editing training that specifically focuses on virtual makeup, called the Digi MakeOver Madness Tutorials (www.shop.DigitalScrapbooksandMore.com).

Digital Airbrushing! The Digi MakeOver Madness Tutorials has a simple motto; a philosophy that I think we can all appreciate: “Spend $5… look like $500.” It’s true, as each individual tutorial is ridiculously inexpensive at $1.99 or less, and features super-easy training to make your favorite photos look even better. Convert photos to vintage black & white pics, whiten teeth, get rid of blemishes and wrinkles, digi tan, even airbrush photos (celebrity or not)! And although Digital Scrapbooks and More cannot legally make any guarantees, I wouldn’t be surprised if I made several new random Facebook friends after posting my newly edited pic.

So what if you’re worried that you don’t have photo editing software to follow along with the training in order to apply virtual makeup to your own photos? Don’t despair; you can get a FREE 30-Day Trial of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements through the Adobe website (www.Adobe.com). With no hidden tricks or gimmicks, you really, truly can get picture-perfect pretty with nothing but pocket change.

Pampered Gluten-Free Pups March 1, 2010

My precious, gluten-free puppy- Coco!

You’re a gluten-free gal. A cute one, too, no doubt. But your puppies? Their definitely cute, but gluten-free? Probably not, huh?

Why not, though?

It’s time to upgrade your dog chow to something that fits YOUR glamorous and green gluten-free life by switching to gluten-free dog food!

Think about it: You work so hard to eat gluten-free, order gluten-free in restaurants or when you go over to your friends houses, and to avoid all contamination with food tools and appliances. Does it freak you out as much as me when you’re dog’s munching on poison-filled bites all over your bed, couch, and floor (getting gluten-filled crumbs all over the place)? Sometimes I worry about kissing the tops of my little dogs’ heads. As precious my two Pomeranian pups are, I just don’t trust their personal cleanliness.

Instinct Gluten-Free Dog Food But let me tell you: It’s difficult to find all-natural, gluten-free dog foods out there! That’s why I was over-the-moon when Glamour and Green found one (that’s fabulous, of course!): Nature Variety’s Instinct Line of Grain-Free Kibble for Dogs!

Try these three gluten-free Dog Food Flavors:

Chicken

Rabbit

Duck

Now you can feel comfortable kissing your pampered pooches (still, I hope it’s not on the mouth 🙂 ), picking up their spilled doggy food, or letting them happily munch away all over and around your furniture (and everything else) without needing a contamination space suit! Whoo-hoo!
