That’s the claim being made by Purple Labs with their product Huge Lips, Skinny Hips! It’s really off the wall to think that you can apply your favorite shade of gloss to add shimmer to your smile, plump you pucker, and curb your appetite. Is that even possible? According to Purple Labs, it is.
Huge Lips, Skinny Hips has some very powerful ingredients that work together to deliver an incredible product. Purple Labs explains that the surface of the lips is very thin and easily “digests” the products we apply. Think about how many times a day you reapply your gloss or how often you lick your lips. In fact, some reports indicate that women ingest up to 9 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime. Yuck! If that’s the case, we should really be very aware of what is in the products we put on our lips. Here’s a run down of what you’ll find in Huge Lips, Skinny Hips.
Meadowfoam – Binds moisture to the skin and keeps your lips soft.
Vitamin E – Keeps your lips extra moist.
Lemon Peel Oil – Offers a cooling effect to help quickly counteract the sting that is common with lip plumpers.
Vitamin B3 – Stimulates blood flow to the lips and gives you that beautiful pout. The “pillow effect” helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles around the lip area.
Orange Peel Extract – Functions as a natural metabolism booster.
Hoodia – Famous for its ability to suppress appetite.
Huge Lips, Skinny Hips comes is six shades designed to look good on every skin tone and face type. Of course, I’m sure you’ll have a favorite color. Most of us do! The colors have some fabulous names. They remind be of all of the crazy names there are for OPI nail colors, LOL. At Purple Labs you find this gloss in Kitty Pole Dancer, Red Sole, Lychee Martini, No Panty Lines, Love Your Thighs, and Worship Kate. Are you intrigued yet?

What’s the next big thing? You know the next buzz. First it was My Space, now Facebook, LinkedIn, and of course Twitter. So, what’s the next big thing? Social Media is all the rage this season with really no end in site. We’ve just scratched the surface in terms of connecting and communicating on line. The business card is slowly becoming the cassette tape of our past. Poken is about to get its big break and take social networking by storm.
I was recently introduced to Poken at Affiliate Summit East 2009 in New York City by Peter Shankman of H.A.R.O. On the cutting edge of marketing and exchange of information, he explained that the Poken will quickly become the fastest way to share your contact and social media bio with others.
So, what is Poken? Poken is a digital business card or also coined as your social networking accessory. It recently won a TechCrunch Europe Award for the Best Real World Device of 2009. Designed as a small character with a USB, four-fingered hand, it has a unique Poken ID and will communicate with other Pokens. Simply purchase your Poken of choice (I went with the cute pink geisha girl!), and open a Free account at Do You Poken.com. You can then create and customize your personal profile with all of your contact information including name, address, phone number/s, email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc. You can even create multiple profiles to ensure you give only the information you want to give to the contacts that you meet. After you’ve created your profile, attach your Poken to a lanyard, purse, backpack, briefcase, cell phone, well you get the idea, just keep it with you. When you meet someone who also has a Poken you can exchange information without having to look for business cards or take notes. Just touch the two Pokens together, feel the magnetic pull, watch for the green light, and in the blink of an eye you have exchanged contacts. When you get home, plug the USB into your computer, log into your Poken account, and download the contacts you made since your last download. The Poken will hold up to 64 contacts and will even alert you with an orange light when you have 60 and only 4 spots left.
Sounds crazy doesn’t it? You probably think I’m joking. It’s actually been around for a little while and is growing quickly in popularity in other countries. Ranging in price from $19.95 for one to $179.95 for a case of 12, it won’t be long before everyone has a Poken here in the U.S. as well. I was actually sad that I didn’t have one in New York when our friends and fellow affiliate marketers began using theirs.
So, the questions that came to my mind included what happens if you lose it, and it has all of your info on it? No problem at all, the Poken itself doesn’t actually carry your personal details. It is identified by a Poken ID. This ID is associated with the account you create online. Can I network before I set up my account or network with others who haven’t set up their accounts yet? Absolutely, the Pokens know each other by that unique ID. When you create your account, the info will be populated online by everyone your Poken has met. Finally, where can I get one? Poken Zoo has them. That’s where I ordered mine. they have all the cute ones and offer Free Shipping on orders of $35 or more. They also take Paypal which is a big deal for some online shoppers. I ordered two, one for me and one for my teenage son. You know he’s going to want one! In fact, everyone is going to want one–after all, they are the next big thing.
Here comes another edition of the very popular Kidz Bop series of music CD’s by kids for kids. It’s Kidz Bop 16, and it’s now available online. I know my kids really enjoyed each of the Kidz Bop CD’s they had growing up. They make it easy to learn lyrics, and they’re lots of fun to sing along to. We’ve even had lots of fun singing along as a family! Kidsz Bop is perfect for car rides and kids parties as well.
Songs on this edition include:
Boom Boom Pow
You Found Me
Right now, they are also offering the brand new Kidz Bop Greatest Hits when you order Kidz Bop 16. You get both for one price! Included on the Greatest Hits CD is our absolute favorite Kidz Bop song, “Sk8ter Boi” by Avril Lavigne. I can remember singing that song 100′s of times with my kids. It really makes me want to get the CD out and play it or order the new set for myself. My kids may think they’re too old for Kidz Bop, but I don’t think I am, LOL!!
This would make a great Christmas gift. Order the set and stash it away until December. And don’t make the same mistake my mom did when I was younger. She bought me one of those As Seen on TV compilation albums one year for Christmas. She was so eager to listen to it that she couldn’t wait until after I opened it at Christmas. So, she decided to listen to it before she wrapped it. I remember the look on her face when I walked in on her after school one afternoon. My mom was gettin’ down to “Double Dutch Bus” right there in the living room! It’s funny now, but she didn’t think it was so funny then. Moral of the story: Buy Kidz Bop 16 for your kids and wait to listen to it together.
Here’s a preview of the new edition found on Youtube!
Nike is finally giving up the tape of Jordan Crawford dunking LeBron James at a recent skills camp run by James at the University of Akron. Apparently the now infamous dunk was caught on tape by two local journalists. According to Nike, their media guidelines don’t allow for the filming of pick up games. After confiscating the footage, there was a flurry of video backlash and comentary all over the internet. I’m going to assume that for the sake of business, Nike has no choice but to give up and let the “fans” see the tape. Of course, we knew it would get out somehow! It always does.
Just some quick background: Jordan Crawford started his college career at IU under Kelvin Sampson and left when Sampson did. He’s now at Xavier. James, the NBA “Superstar”, puts on these academy camps to help college players work on their skills. I think Crawford has skills!
Here’s the dunk! I think it’s nice to know that LeBron James is human. Shame on Nike for causing such a stir. They should have just put it out there in the first place.
Okay, whether you think the new Evian commercial is cute or downright creepy, the question is, does it make you want to try the product? My kids and I watched the video a couple of times and laughed, but I don’t really know what skating babies had to do with Evian bottled water. I wonder if people will even remember in a few days what product the commercial promotes. I think it is certainly a fun idea, but I think it misses the mark in marketing. The video is being watched to the tune of 2,000,000+ views on YouTube. What do you think?
