Heavy on fashion Events : Charmin Kicks Off OPRAH’S The Life You Want Weekend

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus!  Today, this post is about my tome at the Charmin Kicks Off OPRAH’S The Life You Want Weekend Media Brunch . I was so honored to be invited nd listen to some of the most influential business women on how to balance professional success with personal achievements.  TV host, lifestyle expert and author Egypt Sherrod moderated a panel that included Silvia High, CEO of Aiming High, Karen Meleta, ShopRite Vice President, Consumer and Corporate Communications and Jodi Allen, Vice President of North America Marketing and Brand Operations at P&G.

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so happy to bring you another great new product courtesy of iFabbo.  Today, I am reviewing Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream.

I also love that Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream will last me an entire day. I have very dry skin so finding a great lotion is a must in my beauty routine. I have to say I like Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream. I love the scent, lily of the valley mixed with Rose petals and shea butter.  The 6.7 fl oz bottle is a great size too especially for the Perlier line. 
I would suggest buying Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Ha…
