Have you heard? Pür’s youngest model is a Miss Georgia Teen contestant! On November 19, Marianna Gunther will compete for the top teen crown in the state. With her winning personality and natural good looks, the Kennesaw, Georgia native secured her place when she won Teen Miss North Georgia State Fair in September. In addition to modeling for Pür, the multitalented teen also interned with us over the summer at our Atlanta office.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Pür fans are the best! Last week, blogger Heather at Family Friendly Frugality tried our NEW 5-Piece Start Now! Essentials Collection with amazing results. Read her story below:
We love it when we see members of the Pür family succeed. So when we heard that Annie Gunther, our youngest model, won the title of Teen Miss North Georgia State Fair 2012, we were thrilled. Annie, whose work can be seen throughout our website as well as in Dillard’s and ULTA stores, helped bring beauty—pür and simple to a whole new generation. In addition to modeling, Annie also interned with us over the summer, trading her natural creativity for invaluable insight into the beauty industry.
Perhaps it is because I’m under five feet tall, but I absolutely love a good pair of heels! For high heeled shoes and me, it was love at first fit, and I’ve been rocking pumps, peep toes, sling backs, boots and platforms of all styles and heights since my teenage years. Though high heels are practically my running shoes, not everybody likes to wear them, and I understand why. The position of the foot and the added height in these sexy shoes can hinder speed and balance. This made me wonder “who invented these dangerously beautiful things?” I looked into this, and now you can learn and retell a brief history of the high heeled shoe, making you sound super smart the next time you’re out and about with friends.
The most vital part about using cosmetics as a teenager is skin care. Before you begin applying makeup, you’ll want to cleanse your skin with Pür Minerals Revitalizing Facial Wash. This facial wash cleanser gives skin the soothing and calming effects of lavender and aloe vera.
Lavish summer weddings are nothing new, but when the price tag reaches a rumored $2 million and the guest list includes Hollywood A-listers and heads of state, it’s got all the makings of a blockbuster event.
This past weekend marked the official start of summer. For me, this time of year always brings to mind happy memories of weeks spent at my grandparents’ beach condo. But the more I read about the dangers of UV rays and the shortcomings of generic sunscreens, the more I look back on past summers in shock. Growing up, sunscreen was reserved for two things: the beach and the pool. My parents bought it at the drugstore when it went on sale just before Memorial Day and kept it in a beach bag with all our towels and pool passes. Bottles were replaced only when they were completely empty, and since they only saw the light of day (no pun intended) during the summer months, it wasn’t uncommon for a bottle of Valu Block 30 to complete a full presidential term before retiring. (The idea that sunscreen had any sort of a shelf life eluded us.)
Let’s face it, with today’s scientific modalities and plastic surgery techniques, it can be hard to distinguish a woman in her twenties from a woman in her forties. Although we tend to associate wrinkles and gray hair with the elderly, signs of aging can creep up and start to show themselves when we least expect it. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to achieve beauty at any age. So what’s the secret to looking great? Simple—good skin care.
