For Grooms: Ever wonder why women are always so wedding savvy and men are so—well, clueless? How does a bride know so much about seating charts, flowers, and not only her own nuptial attire but her groom’s as well? Because until now there’s never been a wedding planning book for men like The Groom’s Instruction Manual: How to Survive and Possibly Even Enjoy the Most Bewildering Ceremony Known to Man, by veteran groom Shandon Fowler (Quirk Books, $15.95, 208 pages).
A quick trip to the bookstore reveals two types of wedding planning books for would-be grooms: advice from a woman (a.k.a. someone who will never be a groom) and men who take their role in the battle of the sexes too seriously. The Groom’s Instruction Manual is for the stand-up twenty-first century-gentleman. Let’s face it, gone are the days when a groom could sit back and let his fiancée plan the entire wedding. Modern grooms want to make their fiancée happy. They want their wedding to have style and panache. They also want their friends to look back on the Big Day with fond memories. The Groom’s Instruction Manual will aid men who are ready to take the plunge, giving them all the necessary knowledge about:
-Getting engaged (popping the question, finding a ring, possibly consulting the parents)
-Wedding planning (choosing a location, creating a guest list, understanding your role)
-The wedding itself (rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, the wedding night)
-Post-wedding (honeymooning, thank-you notes, newlywedding)
And much more!
Both books are available at book stores nationwide and also at www.quirkbooks.com.
Giveaway: One lucky winner will receive a copy of the Bride's Instruction Manual and the Groom's Instruction manual. Post a comment telling me who you'd like to win these books for. Please be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you. Ends 4/21/09.
A Shielding Lotion is far more effective as a dry skin treatment than conventional moisturizing lotions or protective creams. If you suffer from dry skin, you know that just using a moisturizing lotion doesn't solve the problem. A shielding lotion does much more than just treat dry skin – it’s a new kind of skin care product that makes a real difference to all skin types.
Skin MD Natural™ is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling or residue, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield.
I have found that this bottle sure packs a big punch. You only need a small amount, it is absorbed quickly and your skin immediately feels better. Another thing I love is that this can be used all over your entire body. I never put my "regular" lotion on my face, but the Skin MD Natural with SPF 15 even works on my face. My face does break out, so I was bit worried about trying it on my face. I decided to go ahead and try it. Guess what, I love it for my face. It didn't cause any break outs, feels wonderful and has the SPF in it that I insist on using.
Giveaway: One lucky winner will receive a bottle of Skin MD. Post a comment telling me why wearing sunscreen is important to you. Please leave your email address so I can contact you. Ends 4/21/09.

For ages, Hawaiians have been using exotic, indigenous ingredients for a year-round, healthy tan. Now, the secret is officially out. Tampa-based consumer products company, Bikini Kitchen, brings a tropical escape to everyone with its new tanning lotion, Booty Butter.
With all-natural ingredients from the islands of Hawaii, Booty Butter glides on golden brown and goes to work immediately. This innovative browning lotion turns the skin brown, not pink. Thanks to its blend of Kona coffee extract which helps draw sunlight into the skin and Kukui nut oil which is one of the lightest, most highly absorbent oils, you will see a noticeable difference in your tan in just one hour.
Booty Butter doesn’t just speed up the tanning process, it also keeps your skin revitalized and moisturized long after you have left the sun. Grown exclusively on the slopes of Hawaii’s Mount Hualalai, for generations local cultures have sought the healing powers of the Kona coffee plant which is renowned for its ability to mend broken skin and renew cells. Booty Butter also combines Kukui nut oil, Aloe Vera and light mineral oil to create the perfect recipe for silky, smooth skin.
