BIG Announcement #1 Posted by Laura Iriarte

St. Ives product samples
I have a new job! Starting January 2010 I will be writing 2 articles a month as an independent contractor to be published on the St. Ives website! I signed a one-year contract. The first two articles are about cleansing your skin and choosing a foundation. In my past life I spent 20 years as a professional skincare and beauty consultant.

Funny how it all happened really, they contacted me! I am guessing that they found my blog about my love for their Apricot Scrub! Then, about a month ago, I got an email from them asking me if I would be interested in writing for them. They asked me to “audition” by writing an article on green tea. I did, and then they told me that I had the job!

Today a large and extremely heavy box was delivered to my door containing their whole product line! I’m already a huge fan of the St. Ives Apricot Scrub (I use it every day in the shower), and now I can’t wait to try the rest of their products!

The first two articles are done and awaiting publication! I will definitely let you know and provide links when the articles are published!

Now, I have no idea what to try tonight when I wash my face before bed!?!
