Inner Grace is another 3-in-one shower gel. This one is a favorite of mine. The lovely subtle fragrance lasts for hours. The creamy gel feels incredible on your skin.100% of philosophy's net proceeds from the sale of inner grace, inspired by the life of late Dana Reeve, will be donated to the Christopher and Dana Reeve foundation. $22-$30
I love how these products make me feel both physically and emotionally and I love to support a company who does the right thing and gives back.

This is the full version of my blog picture. Again sorry about the sunglasses. This is a very rare photo. We are all smiling and looking in the same direction. This almost never happens!This is at Epcot
This is all the kids & the big cheese at the Not so scary Halloween Party. It's a ticketed event at the Magic Kingdom. If you get the chance to go~do it! It was tons of fun. It runs from 7pm-12 am.The kids trick-or-treated,they saw tons of characters and the parade was amazing. Best yet they limit the amount of tickets to the party so the park is empty.We literally walked on every ride.

If you haven't had a mammography and you are over 35 get it done! It's not a big deal and it's a lifesaver. I myself have had 5 masses biopsied in the last 3 years-2 removed,2 core biopsied & 1 needle biopsy. Fortunately all have been benign But I know woman who have not been so lucky. 182,460 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women in 2008 alone Breast cancer doesn't care if you are young or old,rich or poor,married with kids and happily single. Make sure to give your girls,knockers,boobs or whatever you call them a monthly self exam. If you find something SEE A DOCTOR!! Early detection is the best defense.Don't become a statistic.
I'll get off my soapbox now...

This multi-talented, leave-in conditioner does it all: Infuses hair with lasting shine, protects from heat styling, fights frizz, and leaves your locks looking sleek and polished. I use this stuff everyday and it is great for " next day I have absolutely no time for a shower hair". It sells for $20-$27 but being that you really only use a pea sized drop it lasts a long time. I usually get it at Sephora online so I can get some free samples too. It is also at some Bath & Body Works stores.

1. Dawn how come you don't have a photo of you on your blog?
Honestly I don't have any photos of me to put up. I am notoriously camera shy and I'm usually the one taking the photos. I promise that on my upcoming vacation I will have my photo taken.I won't like it but I'll do it. In the mean time for those who don't already know me I'm about 5'7" with long flowing blond hair,striking sharp blue eyes and a porn star's body. For those who do know me just shut up and let me have my moment!
2. When did you start making bows and why?
Great question! I started about 5 years ago when I had purchased a bow to match a dress for my younger daughter Sophia. It was a very pretty but plain bow and it cost me $9.00 plus shipping. It was then I decided to give it a try. After many,many,many unsuccessful attempts I finally made a few decent bows. One day at Sophia's preschool a mom (who has ended up being one of my dearest friends Lori Jones)mentioned that she loved how Soph's bow matched her Gymboree outfit and where did I get it. When I told her I made it she suggested I sell them. So it did. I started in a small boutique,then e-bay then I decided to open my own site and I've never looked back!
3. What about the jewelry?
I found jewelry making to be a natural transition from the bows. Don't get me wrong I love making the bows and clips but I wanted to do something different and so came the second site.
4.Where do you get the names for your jewelry?
I name the jewelry after women I love and admire.
5.So where are the products reviews and contests you promised us?
OK-back off already! I will be doing at least one product review a week starting today and if I tell you when a contest is coming that won't be any fun! If anyone knows of a great product for me to review let me know. I really would love to do reviews for other mom owned businesses.
I hope this has answered some of your questions and if you have anymore drop me a line at:

This is definitely one of my favorites. It's made with antiqued brass and a deep garnet crystals. The center piece reminding of a garden gate you would see in a Merchant & Ivory film.The stones are such a beautiful color but no mater how hard I tried I just couldn't get the color. Photography is definitely not one of my strong points. I had it on the other day an received lots of compliments on it.

Just a few quick posts on what's new at Drama Queen Bows. A customer liked the "lorraine" but wanted something bigger so I came up with this:
I love how it came out so much that I decided to add it to the site. Thanks Karleen!
I also added a new bracelet to the Happy Birthday line. This one is personalized and is available in crystal,crystal pearls or freshwater pearls. Again this was a customer suggestion. Thanks Lori!
