I must, I must increase my Bust w/ Talika

Courtesy of Talika
I’ve never had a problem with my bust size, although I do have issues with gravity.  Talika’s Bust Serum is the first product of its kind that has been clinically proven to increase the bust size by giving the breasts increased firmness of 70% and a non-surgical breast lift of 18%. 
You will experience one cup size in 6 weeks! 
*Breast lift: +18%
The breasts are attached to the thorax by ligaments (Cooper’s ligaments). With absolutely no muscle, their only support is the skin. Volume and weight variations erode skin elasticity, triggering a loss in curve and sagging.Thanks to the extract of kigelia africana , Bust Serum prevents the tissue from sagging and improves bust firmness and appearance. Clinical trials have shown +18% in breast lift.*

*Firmness: + 70%
The combination of kigelia africana, mukul bark extract, oat extract, peptides, raspberry seed oil from Chile and hyaluronic acid strengthens the skin’s binding and hence tonicity, thereby tangibly improving its elasticity by 70%. Your breasts will be better maintained and developed as result.*

I apply this magical potion every morning after my shower, the serum absorbs easily into the skin, creating an invisible bra effect, because the size and quality of our breasts is important.  There is such a thing as bad cleavage.  Talika Bust Serum, an alternative to breast implants.

Winner of New Beauty Magazine’s: Beauty Choice Award – Moonglow by jane iredale

Courtesy of jane iredale


jane iredale creates cosmetics that compliment all skin tones, which explains why I’ve been able to wear colors I never thought I could wear before.  Leave it to jane iredale to create another amazing product:  Moonglow.

I played with each color – I was like a kid in a candy store. Jane Iredale makes it easy to get ready in the mornings, especially if we’re running late.  I love the pretty compacts filled with the perfect color combination for my complexion. 

Moonglow left my skin with a sheer and natural flushed glow.  I was glowing from within, even with my new airbrushed tan I could see the touch of color that radiated beneath my skin.  I had my glow on and everyone noticed, even the guys crossing the street!

Jane Iredale makeup is long wearing, crease proof, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested.  Moonglow is perfect for highlighting and contouring everywhere, including the décolleté.   The soft-focus minerals make blendability easy for that natural touch of color. 

I added a hint of shimmer to my face, lips and eyes, it gave me the appearance of wearing eye shadow and enhancing my non-surgical eye lift.    

I was luminous, radiant and happy.   Moonglow by jane iredale is Citygirl approved!

Caution: You will receive extra attention from cute guys!
