Skin care & Body Products for men

If you are an Aveda junkie like me make sure to check out the Aveda Men Pure-FormanceTM products before they go bye bye.  I was shopping there today an about fell over when I took a whiff the Men’s Pure-Formance scent. It’s a spicy sexy blend of  kunzea, citrus scents, and  certified organic essential oils of spearmint, vetiver and lavender. All though it’s packaged for the boys, it’s still versitile enough to be a unisex product.

If you didn’t know already –  Aveda is well respected globally conscious brand that is based in Minnesota. Yes fashion can really happen here in the Midwest. Read about their mission here.

Warning-Do not leave a dangerous breed of dog with a small child…

“If you are an owner of a dog that belongs to a ‘dangerous breed’ category and you also have a small child please take this as a warning. Don’t leave your dog with the child unattended under any circumstances. Only a little moment was enough for the following to happen.”

This was sent to me via email today. Pretty funny considering I own a pit bull breed. My dog is a total teddybear.  This dog seems to be enjoying the attention. 

If anyone happens to know who the photographer is please let me know, I will link back to your blog.
