Creative Gemini always has million ideas bouncing around in her head. One minute she’s writing the next great rock opera, the next she’s dispensing dating advice to the online masses. She’s ready for anything, anytime and prides herself on being adaptable and independent. She’s also got the attention span of a gnat so, to keep all those big projects straight and on her radar, her Squid iPad Bag is always fully stocked and by her side. Made of durable (and pretty) taffeta nylon, it not only features a padded zipper compartment for her iPad (or any other tablet that might catch her eye) but four additional pockets to store all the pens, note pads, headphones, chargers and assorted inspirations she needs to stay on track and in high productive gear!

Inspired by iontophoresis and powered by Ion Force Technology, it deeply saturates her skin with luxurious ingredients that leave her face soft, even toned and luminous!

Super-social Leo has so many friends, her schedule is insane! That’s exactly how she likes it, though, and she thrives on being the life of every party in town.

Logical Virgo views the arrival of spring as bittersweet. On one hand, she can pack away her heavy coats, sweaters and boots! On the other hand, the skirts and dresses that replace them make leg upkeep a must. This requires the best razor on the market and, to her surprise, she finds that the best tool for a woman was made for a man! Schick Hydro Power Select™ is the world’s first custom power wet shave razor. With a 3-setting comfort control system, interactive LED digital interface, water-activated hydrating gel reservoir, handy flip trimmer and sleek design, it takes the same care of her legs that it would a man’s face.

Classy Libra is known for her charming, easygoing manner and friendly disposition. She’s proud to be considered “sweet”, but secretly longs for an edge. She lives vicariously through bold, outspoken celebrities but needs a little help to add some spice to her sugar. The perfect addition to her beauty regimen: Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj. An intoxicating blend of exotic starfruit, jasmine petals, vanilla, skin musks and woods, this fragrance is as light and pretty as she is, while subtly coaxing her inner vixen out to play. She’ll be wearing day-glo wigs and rapping at the PTA luncheon in no time! Find your spotlight-in-a-bottle at fine department stores everywhere.

Magnetic Sagittarius is acutely aware that, wherever she goes, all eyes are usually on her. As thrilling as this is, it’s also a bit intimidating. Every detail of her appearance must have special attention, starting with her smile. The Rembrandt® Deeply White Collection easily keeps her teeth healthy and sparkling! Endorsed by top celebrity makeup artist Amy Oresman (who has styled such red carpet stunners as Rachel Bilson, Kate Bosworth, Zoe Saldana and Cindy Crawford), the collection includes peroxide-enhanced toothpaste and mouthwash as well a two-hour whitening kit for those times when her public can’t wait.

Smooth talking Aquarius is a born entertainer. She can regale people for ages about her exploits and never tires of listening to other people’s shenanigans.
