Whish it all away

Talk about taking the spa into your own shower!  The line of  Whish products really transformed my mundane shower into a special experience.  The products are amazing and I totally love them!

The set I have are the vanilla spice body wash, sugar scrub, and body butter.  Using the three of these together left me with the smoothest skin I’ve ever had!

 

As if moisturizing in the shower with the body wash and sugar scrub wasn’t enough to make my skin velvety, the body butter after the shower was the icing on the cake.  I felt a touchably smooth difference from my normal routine of body wash and Vaseline lotion after the shower.  No one should miss out on this line!

 

Whish combines organic and natural ingredients to leave users with the softest skin.  The company has a whole line of products for protecting and enhancing your precious skin including the shave crave, body butter, self tanner, ingrown hair serum, and pre-shave serum.

Beauty, Bullying, Real Housewives of OC Season 8, Family and More with Heather Dubrow – PART 1

 

ME: How do you manage it all? Being a wife, mother, and actress and having cameras in your face all day long?

HEATHER: I drink a lot. No I’m kidding. It’s a balance but life is a balance. Sometimes I do well, sometimes I don’t. If I could freeze right now I’d say today is a good day. The kids are happy, Terry’s good. I’m constantly trying to figure out if I’m servicing everyone well enough, my kids my husband and myself and constantly reevaluating. I may be too hard on myself sometimes. Last season I talked a lot about my acting career. Obviously that’s had to go on the back burner. I’ve had 4 kids in 8 years, I’ve been busy. Aside from a few things here and there, I really haven’t been working. Being on the show now, and people seeing my face, it reminds Hollywood who you are.  Now I’m receiving some cool interesting opportunities, so what I’m trying to figure out now again is what can I actually do that will satisfy me creatively and be enough for me without taking anything away from the family. It’s an ever changing thing to manage it all.

 

ME: You are currently filming season 8 correct?

HEATHER:  I don’t believe an official pick up has been announced for Season 8 by BRAVO yet.

ME: Do you know if anyone will be or will not be returning should Season 8 happen?

HEATHER: Well, one person has been pretty vocal. I would say hypothetically if we were to do Season 8 I think most people would come back.

ME: Even Alexis?

HEATHER: My understanding is that she won’t be returning.

 

ME: You are married to the premiere plastic surgeon. What are your beauty rituals? What products do you use on your face? Favorite beauty products?

HEATHER: I like to keep it incredibly simple. My husband is a naturalist and he wants everyone to look healthy and pretty and he wrote a book a few years ago called “The Acne Cure” which basically tells you how to cure your acne for very little money. His new product line, which I can’t live without, which he’s re-launching is really just about getting beautiful skin for very little money. It doesn’t take a fortune to improve your skin. As I’m getting older I find my skin is changing so much and I hear it from all my friends too. His products are phenomenal, very simple, and very easy to use. Love that! Not a lot of lotions and potions.

 

ME: I’ve heard bits and pieces about you possibly starting a beauty line or is there going to be a collaborative effort with your husband?

HEATHER: I have helped him with his line and I will continue to do so. I’m his at home guinea pig. I try it out and I have sensitive skin. It’s changing as I get older. I’m also someone who really likes Cetaphil soap. It’s very pure and natural. I think less is more. That’s basically our philosophy for everything. For plastic surgery, skincare.

 

ME: I know you are very involved with the 2nd Harvest Food Bank. Are there any other organizations you are involved with that you’d like to share?

HEATHER: I am involved with the 2nd Harvest Food Bank. I’m a part of a group called the Harvesters.  I’m incredibly passionate about feeding kids. What I’ve noticed and I don’t know the exact numbers but I feel like so many organizations are feeding kids around the world which I think is fabulous but I would like to focus on feeding kids here at home. The restaurant that we are in the works with and food products we are working on right now are all gonna give back to feeding our kids.

 

ME: Is there a possibility of having another child?

HEATHER: (Heather laughed hysterically) Wait…let me tell that to my assistant.  (Her assistant’s response “Oh God”.)

ME: So I guess that’s a no?

HEATHER: I love kids. If I were 10 years younger I’d probably want one more. But I’m old and tired. My husband and I got married a little bit later, we had kids a little bit later and we had a lot of fertility problems. We went through fertility treatments and had the twins, went back to fertility and had Catarina, and then we thought we were done and low and behold I got pregnant naturally with Little Miss Colette. So that was a shocker. She’s amazing and she’s funny but she’s so much work. And you forget. Especially right now she’s 21 months and she can’t communicate so she’s frustrated but she’s so stinking cute. I think they make them that way so you can’t go nuts on them. She’s amazing and I feel incredible blessed. To have her. But I did have my tubes tied when I had her. So that was it. We closed that door.

 

ME: Who’s your RHOC BFF?

HEATHER: Ohhh I have to say I have such good relationships with Tamara, Gretchen & Vicki. I’d have to say I’m closest with Tamara, because I met her first and she and I really just initially bonded over our kids. We have similarly aged children and we just sort of hit it off. I felt she was sort of my buoy in the storm when I first joined the show.

 

ME: I actually met Tamara Barney 2 years ago. We bonded over having the same purse. She’s very cool and down to earth.

HEATHER: She is. She’s very down to earth, very authentic. She and I are very different. She doesn’t have a lot of filters. Not everyone has to be exactly the same. That’s what makes life interesting. I appreciate the fact that she is very true to herself and she’s unapologetic about it.

 

ME: Do you watch the other Real Housewives shows?

HEATHER: I watch the Beverly Hills franchise.

ME: Do you have a favorite cast member?

HEATHER: I kind of love them all. I know Adrienne because Paul used to work with my husband. I’ve met them all. I think their all really nice, but I’d probably be friends with Lisa and Kyle.

Interview with Christy Periera – Jerseylicious Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere

Christy Periera

Katie – A couple of my readers wrote to me with some specific questions for you.

@MrsMoNJ asked – Is your pregnancy and new baby going to be part of the new season and what tips do you have for pregnant women to stay fab?

Christy – My pregnancy is a big part of the first ten episodes and my daughter is going to be a big part of the second half of the season. Just try and be really confident and secure because being pregnant, although it’s really wonderful, it’s hard. You know your body really, really changes.

Katie – I have to tell you your daughter has a great birthday.

Christy – Is it your birthday?

Katie – It is.

Christy – Wow that’s great! She came 11 days early.

Katie –   @MrsMoNJ also asked – What are some safe products that pregnant women can use on their hair and face?

Christy – When I was pregnant I used this semi permanent color and I really tried to stay away from all the chemicals. I did just use good conditioning treatments. Honestly, my hair was in the best condition it ever was from being pregnant, all the vitamins and stuff like that. As far as face products go as long as you don’t use anything that has acids or anything like that, same thing, I really didn’t need to use much . My skin and hair were really at its best while I was pregnant.

Katie – What is something that your fans would be surprised to know about you?

Christy – I can touch my tongue to my nose.

Katie – What’s the best advice you’ve gotten since being on the show?

Christy – it’s not the advice that I’ve gotten, but it’s the advice I’ve given myself and that’s to be true to who I really am. I really am myself and I tried not to change and I hope that shows and hope that everyone liked me for me.

Katie – What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned since you’re new found fame on “Jerseylicious”?

Christy – I guess the same thing. It’s been an amazing surreal experience and I hope it keeps going but like I said, I try not to let it get to my head and be true to myself and put my family and the salon first before the show. I cross my fingers and hope for the best for everything.

Owner, Gayle Giacomo & daughter Christy Periera
