Our Gift to you in October

Pink Tulips!

It's become one of our favorite traditions! During the month of October, we'll share with you some pink tulip bulbs. Plant them now, and when they bloom in May, they'll remind you to get your mammogram.

Planting tips:

Plant tulips in late fall in well-drained soil. Grow them where they will get at least 5-6 hours of sun a day; full sun in preferable. Dig the soil to a depth of 8-12" and work in Bulb Booster or other bulb food. Set the bulbs 4-8" deep and 4-8" apart, depending on size and variety.

Fixing Fashion Faux Pas

Don't you love clever products that help us look and feel as fabulous as we are? Here are three of our new favorites!

Jaks is an absolute must for women who love their low-rise jeans! Wear Jaks over your jeans but under your top—much like a shirt extender. It appears to be a lace camisole layered underneath your shirt- but actually, Jaks is the latest fashion weapon used to cover up "back cleavage". Bend over and sit down ladies – Jaks has you covered!.

Sold Individually. Available in black S/M and M/L.

Is your plunging V-neck revealing a little too much at the office? No problem – reach for Miss Oops Boob Tube! Made of stretchable lace, this modern day bandeau gives you just the right amount of coverage without the added bulk of another layer. Genius!

Sold Individually. S/M and M/L. Available in black.

Can't get rid of that dreaded panty line? Let's face it, some pants just look and feel better au natural! That's why Hollywood Fashion Tape has created "Hollywood Goes Commandos", the sexy, healthy, disposable panty alternative. Made of doctor -recommended 100 percent unbleached, un-dyed, breathable cotton, these self-adhesive pant patches allow you to "go commando" while retaining that all-important cotton lining. Hollywood Goes Commandos provides a clean, healthy barrier of protection between you and your jeans, shorts, leggings, workout pants, etc., with nary a thong-related wedgie nor panty line in sight! They're easy to apply and remove, and most importantly, they empower you to dress as you want.

Sold in packages of five disposable liners.
