Poetry In Your Tub!

Monday, August 13th, 2012

A rubber ducky is fun if you’re Ernie or Bert,

But your bath needs more when you’re stressing or hurt.

Bubbles can help if your bath is a bore,

But doesn’t help much if your muscles are sore.

A loofah is nice if you want to scrub a dub a dub dub,

But won’t relax you much — like (seed) will in your tub.

With (seed) body oil blends, baths help mind, body and more,

All natural soothing, from outside to core.

Seed Body Oil in Therapeutic and Relaxing Blend, $12 Each

Deeply moisturizing. Soothes and relaxes. 100% Natural. Enjoy healthy, silky smooth skin, with stress-relieving aromatherapy, through a generous blend of seed-based ingredients containing abundant antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Our fast absorbing, indulgent body oil will nourish your skin and soothe your mind. Experience the benefits of seedology®.

So naturally, she grabbed a fellow Housewife and headed to the waxing a go-go for some girl time and $24 walk–in brow shaping fit for reality royalty. Heather Thomas The ladies loved the kitschy casual atmosphere where brows are done under the sparkle of a disco ball and a dog named “baby” keeps the catfights at bay. They also raved about the fancy low-temperature purple wax (Flash Wax), the owner Boom Boom imports from Italy – it’s super gentle and PERFECT for the sensitive nature of any housewife…

“Sometimes reality does NOT bite! Heather has amazing brows, I told the other Housewife that hers would be gorg too once I got a hold of them. I applied Push Up brow highlighting pencil to add lift and highlight her eyes,” says Boom Boom, owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar and flashiest waxer in town.

Browscaping by Boom Boom!

Friday, December 16th, 2011

“Sooner or later, a trim is in order…for almost anything that grows, even brows. Ever see those long strands that stand out or fall…not pretty,” explains Boom Boom, owner of Boom Boom Brow Bar. Here’s how it’s done:

Using a disposable mascara wand, brush brows upwards and trim excess hair slightly – not too short or it will make a hole (get to that in a minute). Then, brush brows down and do the same. Make sure to use scissors with a rounded edge to ensure safety, don’t want sharp objects near peepers!

Dolly - Brow "Boostier" Powder

If you get in a jam…over-tweezing and/or trimming too short can create holes, but there is a simple solution – Boom Boom Brow Boostiers brow powder to the rescue.  A brow powder is really easy to work with and great for camouflaging holes and thin spots.  It’ very natural looking when applied with an angled brush – just dab on the spot and go.   Don’t over-think it, just follow the line and fill in the hole.  It’s that simple.

Brow Boostiers brow powder is made of mineral powders that are hypoallergenic and free of all fragrance, oil, talc, dyes and fillers. They are virtually weightless and make filling in brows easy, and truly natural looking with rich color pigment. Comes in four colors (Aretha, Tina, Bette, Dolly) each with the most perfect brush EVA, designed by Boom Boom. Retail Price:  $20.00 per powder, comes with brush.
