Tonight! Primping Party at bareMinerals

Tonight! Primping Party at bareMinerals


Her Campus

As you can see from my makeup collection, I’m a huge fan of bareMinerals.

Bare Minerals

by noreply@blogger.com (green/clean cosmetics) @ green/clean cosmetics

So this week I contacted my friend Kerrie Urban (www.kerrieurban.com)... She is a hair and makeup artist based in NYC with Artists by Timothy Priano. I contacted her to help me with my blog because I knew she used Bare Minerals cosmetics on a regular basis.

To be perfectly honest, I was never really a fan of Bare Minerals....I found it drying on my own skin which is already dry and sensitive, and that it didn't photograph very well on photoshoots. I found that the faces were reflecting a lot of light and almost looked metallic. Then I saw that one of the ingredients in one form of their loose foundation powders was Aluminum. I was surprised by that because La Bella Donna, another mineral makeup line that I LOVE, does photograph well, is not too shiny and does not contain Aluminum. The aluminum made me nervous and a bit ticked off that they were calling themselves a mineral line which they very well may be (obviously) but that they were still using relatively harmful ingredients.

Having said that, when I saw that ingredient, it was at a photoshoot with kerrie 2 years ago. Since then I've shopped at Sephora many times, furiously reading the ingredient list on the Bare Minerals packaging and never once saw Aluminum again on the list.

So I made the decision to start trying Bare Minerals. So far I've tried the Foundation Powder, Mineral Veil, Moisturizer and Eye Cream. They are all really nice, good quality products.
One thing I'll say about the foundation powder and mineral veil is that for photography purposes you have to be careful because of the light. In my pictures of Kerrie I used natural light which seemed to not have too reflective of a result so it was fine...but for studio light i'm wary because it almost casts a film that looks greasy.

But for everyday use here's what kerrie said, " I like using bare minerals for my everyday foundation because it's not too heavy. It doesn't clog my pores and it doesn't dry me out. I have oily skin so the nice thing is that the powder absorbs some of the oil but not so much that I look made up. What I do wish they'd do is create a travel compact of the foundation powder because it just get's so messy in my bag carrying around the loose. It would be nice to have a compact with a mirror and a little application brush, that way I can touch up at work and not worry about getting powder everywhere on set." Kerrie Urban 2010 (www.kerrieurban.com)

I'm looking forward to trying more of the bare minerals line and getting back with more info....stay tuned for more on Bare Minerals soon.....

McDonald's Replacing Former Champp's Location Next to Chick-fil-A on Golf Rd, Schaumburg

by noreply@blogger.com (ssearch) @ Woodfield Mall and Area Shopping

The Woodfield Mall area in Schaumburg will soon have three McDonald's restaurants within a 1 square-mile area -- one McDonald's inside the mall, one at Higgins Road and Plum Grove Road, and one at the former Champp's Restaurant site. McDonald's corporation bought the site just east of Chick-fil-A in June 2015.

The news comes within a month of Chick-Fil-A being ranked number one in customer satisfaction in the American customer satisfaction index with a score of 86 out of 100.

Chipotle ranked second with 83 and McDonald's ranked last with a 67 out of 100.

It is not surprising that McDonald's would want to place a new restaurant right next to the first Chick-fil-A in Schaumburg. In fact, at the company-wide scale, McDonald's is working on preparing an improved chicken sandwich in an attempt to be competitive with Chick-fil-A's chicken sandwich.

Next year, if you're starving and forgetful on a Sunday and travel to Chick-fil-A's Schaumburg location (closed Sundays), you will be able to check out McDonald's improved chicken sandwich right next-door.

La Bella Donna (Mineral Makeup) the real deal.....

by noreply@blogger.com (green/clean cosmetics) @ green/clean cosmetics

I’ve already mentioned La Bella Donna mineral makeup on a few occasions with my blog, but I wanted to devote a bit more attention to it. To me, it’s one of the best mineral makeup lines out there. Not only do I have an attachment to it because it was my first real introduction into the mineral/green/natural makeup world, but because I’ve used it for a long time and I’ve seen how it photographs and wears on an everyday level. In both cases, it’s absolutely gorgeous.

The loose foundation powder is wonderful. It has a bit of a shine/shimmer that gives the skin a healthy glow. A little bit of it goes a long way, so you can start with a thin wash of it with a large brush as a natural clean base or you can build on it to make it full coverage. You can also use a small flat brush and use it as a concealer for blemishes and even under the eyes.

If the loose foundation powder is a bit too shiny for you, they also make a pressed powder that has a matte satin finish. It’s mostly matte but there is a slight sheen that isn’t really shiny, it just reduces the chance for typical results of most matte powders which can be chalky and cakey at times. Personally I use both the loose and the pressed. I like to dust a thin wash of the loose powder all over my face for a nice base and then set with the pressed. I find that setting with the pressed eliminates the need for touching up throughout the day.

The eye shadows and powder blushes are really pretty. The color choices aren’t immense but there is definitely enough variety to have a natural/neutral look, a smoky look and a look with a bit of color. They blend so well together and into the skin that it physically requires no work. I mean you place the brush where it needs to go, blend and the color/shadow is perfectly placed on the eye or cheek.

The mascara is great. It has a nice amount of thickening and lengthening and doesn’t dry hard. The only thing is it’s not waterproof so using it for brides has gone out the window for me, but I use it on myself and it gives me just enough “wow” to feel pretty and natural but not too made up.

The same is true with the eyeliner pencils. They are soft and rich and blend very well for a soft smoky look, or you can create a thick bold line that’s full and dark if that’s your thing too. The only problem again is that they are not water resistant so using them for brides and/ or on a very hot day, can get a bit messy just because they tend to melt a bit more easily.

The lipstick and lipgloss is really nice. Most of them are pretty sheer but buildable. So potentially you can use them like a stain just for a bit of color, or you can build the color to a fully rich tone that looks and feels like a lipstick you’d buy from Chanel or Bobbi Brown. Again, like the eyeshadows, the color selection isn’t vast but its enough to give you choices for a variety of looks and I guarantee you will find at least 2 or 3 colors that jump out at you right away.

The most fascinating thing to me about La Bella Donna as a company, is that they provide information about their products that is not only factual about minerals and their benefits but also how simple it is. The explanations of the ingredients are easy to understand and actually fun to read.

La Bella Donna is an approachable line. Even though they are located at Bergdorf Goodeman which is a rather intimidating and fancy department store, you can still feel good about yourself because everyone that comes to shop there is treated equally. The people who work for the company (including myself a few years ago) truly stand behind this product and are excited to impart their knowledge of it to everyone. You can also purchase it online at the website www.labelladonna.com. There is a lot more info about all the ingredients on the website…..take a look and enjoy!!! ☺

Woodfield Green Executive Centre Property to be Re-Developed as New Entertainment District Just North of Renaissance Hotel

by noreply@blogger.com (ssearch) @ Woodfield Mall and Area Shopping

Schaumburg trustees Tuesday approved a $6.58 million offer to buy both single-story office buildings just north of the convention center and Renaissance Hotel to help develop a new entertainment district in a Schaumburg TIF district. The new entertainment district would involve reconfiguration of Thoreau Drive that would decrease the curve on Thoreau Drive.

The 110,000-square-foot Woodfield Green Executive Centre is located near the southeast corner of Meacham Road and Algonquin Road on the north side of Thoreau Drive and just across Meacham Road from Zurich North America's new headquarters. To the north of the single-story office buildings is an Embassy Suites Hotel and two multi-story office buildings, including the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Schaumburg officials became aware only weeks ago of an opportunity to make an offer on the 8.75-acre site they had long considered underused, Village Manager Brian Townsend said. Village officials aim to close on the purchase by Dec. 31.

The long-term plan is to hold the 8.75-acre property to sell to one or more developers interested in building more restaurant and other entertainment venues near the southeast corner of Meacham and Algonquin roads.

No new leases or lease renewals will be approved in the Woodfield Green Executive Centre, and the expiration dates of the current leases ranging from 2018 to 2030 are likely to be negotiated to end early.

Leases could even face condemnation proceedings if agreements cannot be reached, according to Village Manager Brian Townsend.

Thoughts on Green Makeup

by noreply@blogger.com (green/clean cosmetics) @ green/clean cosmetics

Over the past few weeks I've done a couple of fashion/beauty photoshoots with professional photographer friends of mine. I asked them (River Clark www.riverclark.com and Shiran Nicholson www.shirannicholson.com) to help me because I wanted to experiment with all of the green makeup I've been blogging about in a more work-related way. In other words, I wanted to see how this green makeup "stuff" would measure up with hi-end digital photography & lighting.

For the most part, the end result is beautiful. The makeup holds up pretty well and photographs nicely. At the same time, as a professional and more to the point a perfectionist and my own worst critic, I noticed slight differences in how the makeup was photographing.

The textures aren't quite as smooth, meaning I see the makeup more. It sits on the surface of the skin even after it's been blended well. I'm sure it has something to do with the ingredients. I found myself manipulating the products a lot more through the application. I kept adding more moisturizer to help me blend the foundation further into the skin. I was alternating between either the Rose Day Cream from Dr. Hauschka or the Rare Minerals moisturizer from Bare Minerals. I found myself working a bit harder to even apply the powder just for setting the makeup so that we wouldn't see any chalky white powder bits in the photo.

In general with hi-def cameras both for still and moving pictures, makeup artists have had to change the way they look at makeup in those situations. These cameras pick up every strand of hair that's out of place so there is no room for overlooking the small details.

There are no unnecessary oils or preservatives in green makeup, which is great, but I'm starting to think that our bodies or skin rather, absorb those chemicals more quickly than we absorb cosmetics that don't contain them. And for photography purposes, plus what we need for time efficiency, we almost require the fast absorption for a more flawless end result.

So not only is green makeup healthier in general because of the ingredients but the fact that our skin doesn't drink it up as quickly is a new discovery. Ultimately I think that is great for everyday makeup and skin care users but I'm still on the fence about it for fashion photography. I have to admit that when I was using the green makeup I was tempted to grab my Chanel and MAC stuff to make it easier. I didn't, and I'm glad I didn't but in makeup artist terms I was just plain frustrated.

Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens. Directed by Chris Columbus, the screenplay is by Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling with a screen story by Tim Herlihy, based on the short film by Patrick Jean.

Sports Authority Closing Schaumburg Golf Rd Store, 10 Other Illinois Stores, and About 140 Stores Nationwide with Bankruptcy

by noreply@blogger.com (ssearch) @ Woodfield Mall and Area Shopping

Sports Authority Inc., is closing about 140 of its stores nationwide (11 in Illinois) after filing for bankruptcy reorganization. The Randhurst Village store, which moved a few years ago from their previous location on Rand Road just west of Arlington Heights, is set to stay open.

Nearby stores scheduled for closing are ...

1015 E. Golf Road in Schaumburg

727 W. Main St. in Lake Zurich

173 Yorktown Center in Lombard

1777 S. Randall Road in Geneva, and

2030 Northbrook Court in Northbrook.

The other Illinois stores scheduled to close are in Calumet City, Matteson, Orland Hills, Chicago, Joliet and Springfield.


Liquidation sales are set to begin within the next few days and possibly today.

On Wednesday, Sports Authority filed for bankruptcy and planned to close about 140 stores nationwide. Sports Authority will also close or sell distribution centers in Chicago and Denver.

The Chapter 11 process will streamline and strengthen the business both operationally and financially so the company has the financial flexibility to make investments and adjustment to adapt to a changing retail industry The process is expected to take about three months.

Sports Authority struggled since a $1.3 billion buyout in 2006 that piled the company with debt. At that time, the chain was competing evenly in sales with Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. However, Dick's expanded with hundreds more locations and eventually gained twice as many sales per store. Dick's Sporting Goods in 2016 is the U.S. leader in athletic gear sales.

Dick's Sporting Goods has a store nearby at The Streets of Woodfield.

Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., JP Morgan Chase & Co. and TPG Capital will be providing the $595 million loan that will help Sports Authority operate as it restructures in bankruptcy.

LETTER FROM CEO MIKE FOSS

March 2, 2016

Dear Sports Authority Customers,

During the past several months, we have been working very hard to adapt our business to better meet the needs of our customers. We are committed to evolving as a company so we are able to continue to offer the best brands at great values - both in our stores and on our website, SportsAuthority.com.

With these goals in mind, we have decided to utilize the Chapter 11 process to implement a financial and operational restructuring that we believe is necessary to help us become an even better place for our customers to shop for sporting goods.

Due to the changing retail environment, we have a long-term plan to streamline and strengthen our business so we can continue to make necessary investments in our operations, including upgrading our in store experience and enhancing our website. As part of that plan, we have identified approximately 140 stores that we intend to close or sell in the coming months. This was a tough decision to make, but we believe it was a necessary step in our plan to make Sports Authority an even better partner for our customers. The store closings will occur over the next three months.

While no stores are being shut immediately, if the store where you regularly shop is ultimately closed, you can use the Store Locator on our website to find the nearest Sports Authority location. In addition, you always can find all of our brands at the same great values online at SportsAuthority.com.

Most importantly, I want to emphasize that our customers should not be affected by this restructuring process.

We do not expect there to be any impact on gift card balances or your ability to use gift cards at our stores or online at this time.
In addition, there should be no changes to our return/exchange policies at our go-forward stores or our customer loyalty program, The League.
If you have a warranty on a product you bought at Sports Authority, it is still in effect for the same period of time.
Finally, this should have no impact on the way you use your Sports Authority credit card or pay your bill.
In short, we are continuing to operate our stores and website, and we remain fully committed to delivering value and great brands wherever you shop at Sports Authority.

If you have any questions, or would like more information about the Chapter 11 case, including access to Court documents, please visit www.kccllc.net/sportsauthority or call the information line at:

Toll Free (USA and Canada): 866-967-0490

Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,


Michael Foss,
Chief Executive Officer

Breast Cancer

by noreply@blogger.com (green/clean cosmetics) @ green/clean cosmetics

My mother is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed almost 3 years ago and had a short but intense round of chemotherapy. She’s doing very well, and has had a clean bill of health for going on 2 years. I can’t begin to describe the effect it’s had on my life let alone hers. Once this disease gets close to you, it never really goes away. My mom is extraordinarily strong and since the diagnosis she’s been able to move forward with her life….. and so have I.

These days it seems that every time I stumble upon information pertaining to or playing a part in furthering our awareness about breast cancer, I jump at the opportunity to read it. There are various small adjustments we can make in our day to day routine to improve and maintain our health that don’t interfere with our general enjoyment of life. For example, by switching out certain cosmetics for more “green” and healthy alternatives, we can trim the fat……so to speak, and perhaps prevent complications in the future.

Having said all that, I came across a small, yet gem of a publication specifically dedicated to Breast Cancer patients, survivors, and all those affected by the disease. The writer, Julia Chiappetta, also a Breast Cancer survivor, collaborated with an Oncologist, Dr. Merrick I. Ross, M.D., F.A.C.S, and wrote Breast Cancer The Notebook. It’s a comprehensive and simple way to get as much information about Breast Cancer, treatments, healthy living suggestions and maintenance into one place as possible. She covers all the bases including information on certain chemicals in cosmetics to avoid as well as clarifying why we should really try to stay away from antiperspirant deodorants.

“Antiperspirants contain chemicals and toxins that are absorbed into your body in your armpit area and may cause a concentration of toxins that lead to cell mutations.” Julia Chiapetta

Most antiperspirants contain aluminum.

“Despite its natural abundance, aluminum has no known function in living cells and presents some toxic effects in elevated concentrations. Its toxicity can be traced to deposition in bone and the central nervous system, which is particularly increased in patients with reduced renal function. Because aluminum competes with calcium for absorption, increased amounts of dietary aluminum may contribute to the reduced skeletal mineralization (osteopenia) observed in preterm infants and infants with growth retardation. In very high doses, aluminum can cause neurotoxicity, and is associated with altered function of the blood-brain barrier.[61] A small percentage of people are allergic to aluminium and experience contact dermatitis, digestive disorders, vomiting or other symptoms upon contact or ingestion of products containing aluminium, such as deodorants or antacids. In those without allergies, aluminium is not as toxic as heavy metals, but there is evidence of some toxicity if it is consumed in excessive amounts.[62] Although the use of aluminium cookware has not been shown to lead to aluminium toxicity in general, excessive consumption of antacids containing aluminium compounds and excessive use of aluminium-containing antiperspirants provide more significant exposure levels. Studies have shown that consumption of acidic foods or liquids with aluminium significantly increases aluminium absorption,[63] and maltol has been shown to increase the accumulation of aluminium in nervous and osseus tissue.[64] Furthermore, aluminium increases estrogen-related gene expression in human breast cancer cells cultured in the laboratory.[65] The estrogen-like effects of these salts have led to their classification as a metalloestrogen. “ Internet research

I know it’s a difficult concept, especially in a city like New York where you’re running around all day, to consider switching from antiperspirant to regular deodorant but here’s why it should be something to think about. Let me explain by summarizing what Julia Chiappetta has written:

Armpits are one of four areas in our body where toxins are released in the form of sweat. Armpits are also the closest of these areas to our breasts. If we clog that area with an antiperspirant, we are literally stopping the natural occurrence of toxin release. Therefore the toxins build up and deposit themselves throughout the body, most commonly in the lymph nodes that are closest to the armpit. To quote Julia Chiappetta, “ A high percentage of breast cancer tumors are found in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area because about 80% of breast tissue is located in that area.”

There are a few chemicals found in cosmetics that I was unfamiliar with that Julia Chiappetta lists as ingredients to avoid:

To quote:

“ Imidazolidinyl Urea and Diazolidinyl Urea
These are the most commonly used as preservatives after the parabens. They are well established as a primary cause of contact dermatitis. Two trade names for these chemicals are Germall II and Germall 115. Germall 115 releases formaldehyde at just over 10 degrees.

PVP/VA Copolymer
A petroleum-derived chemical used in hairsprays, wave sets and other cosmetics.

Triethanolamine
Often used in cosmetics to adjust the pH level, and used with many fatty acids to convert acid to salt (stearate), which then becomes the base, for a cleanser. TEA causes allergic reactions including eye problems, dryness of hair and skin and could be toxic if absorbed into the body over a long period of time. “

I’d like to thank Julia Chiappetta and her collaborators for this book. It is a great resource for so many people and it’s accessible, not too clinical. Here’s the website for the book:

and just a reminder, from her and from me….please read your labels! Make sure you know as much as you can about the ingredients you are ingesting and absorbing everyday…..
