Happy Mothers Day! 🌺

I hope my followers and visitors of my blog have an awesome and delicious day today!

I know for some of you it’s a glorious day and others it is a hard one for an array of reasons.

But enjoy your mom and grandma or other mother figures in your life today! And celebrate 🎉 the beauty and memories of Mother’s Day!

I’m going to write a love letter to my Mom today. Her fave & my memories lives with me forever.

Ready to rock …

If you’re in the beauty and wellness industry you need to be here this year!

If you’re not you’re in luck. I’ll kiss 💋 & tell all I saw and learned from my spa show and take you on a tour of Las Vegas through photos. I love 💕 love 💕 love the beauty industry and proud to be a speaker and educator too.

Always an awesome show it is THE show of the year to attend. Packed with amazing speakers, free manufacturer classes and paid workshops on all kinds of topics.

I’ll be teaching a class “Age is Just a Number”

I’ll share my MAKE-UP Artist beauty tools and secrets I use in studio and on the set.

This show is alongside the International Beauty Show filled with …products,inspiration and classes on….Hair, Nails, Skin,Massage, Facials and a massive show floor as well. TWO beautiful shows in one!

A big hit for all the wrong reasons!

Everyone’s talking about it on the streets,social,media,the internet and more. I was watching the Academy Awards sipping a glass of bubbly, had a hot fabulous bubble bath and enjoying some yummy delights.

ALL OF A SUDDEN the blank hit the fan on the show!

The show went sideways, up,down and all around. I could not believe my eyes or ears. Now I am no angel with my words but that was NOT what I was expecting to witness and hear on the Academy Awards I have so loved and enjoyed watching this award show for some time now. The classless bar room type brawl and all that cussing and hate was tough. What a night!

One bad apple ruined the beautiful evening of talented actors,style and grace.

Today I woke up wondering was it all a bad dream. The vibe from last night was STILL with me today. All day. How about you?

By the way, I take pride in all I learn and know in the ever changing world of beauty,skin,fashion,celebrity and lifestyle. I never heard that WS’s wife had this condition. Neither did comedian Chris Rock who was filled with class and handled himself well.

Your views may or may not be the same. I’d like to chat up about beauty and fashion BUT not at this time and from this Oscars year.

Oscars… almost showtime!

Soon the celebrities will walk the red carpet and get to their seats in anticipation of who will WIN and a movie 🎥 star and more celebration. I love to watch this show and I get to see all the behind the scenes beauty from the show.

What I know for sure is celebrities clamor for glamor and definitely want to look younger,hydrated,tightened and have softer plumper pillowy lips!

While they do eat junk food the prep journey to the red carpet is a beauty detox and fasting one. They do everything in their power to look thinner, sexier and glowing.

I like to celebrate 🎉 the Oscars with a few friends or ALONE . My husband prefers to watch other shows from year to year. But I make this day a delicious evening of food, drink and fun. So, today I prepped away.

But I also like to combine this with a beauty filled night of self-care and pampering. Prosecco or champagne cocktails or a delightful cocktail are a part of the evening. Popcorn added is always a good idea. Bathed in warm butter and a few chocolate shavings on top is heaven. Popcorn, champagne and beauty! What a great way to spend the evening.

I pull out an array of skin living products. I line them up in a beautiful basket and use every thing! It’s been a long action packed month with beauty shows, events and being on TV. I NEED a bit of Love Me❤️ Time!

Oscar worthy beauty can be:

Take a bath or shower first.

An easy to use & no mess sheet mask for your face, under eyes, feet,hands,decolette or even hair. You may not look like a sex kitten in your night gown doing this but your skin will love you.

Follow up with a luxe face and an aromatic body lotion.

By the way, I do put in a pretty nightgown and even have a pair of sexy feather slippers. If you feel like add a crown to the mix if you think you’re a 👑 queen.

Have a great evening of celebrities, fashion and beauty. Can’t wait to see the looks, glitz and glam!

Tis the season. That is why I have not been blogging much lately. My days are long. My business has started to show signs of festive shopping and people coming out more like it used to be. It has not been easy for business owners this year. We are still hurting. The beauty and spa business even more. Face Masks 😷 have made clients lazy and more relaxed in their skin care. Foundation,blush and 💄lipsticks! But now I find people are trying to get into the reason for the season and all the magic!! People are tired and restless…how about you ? Do you see this out your way to?

I love helping my clients shop for loved ones and discover all the treasures I have to offer! I also love ❤️ helping them look good and feel fabulous too! When they shop I encourage them to treat themselves 🎁 to something too!

Still offering curbside pickup and doing whatever it takes to serve them! As well as of course we ship beauty boxes 📦 to their door.

My business is my clients HAPPY place!

Leave their worries at the door, no racism, no Karen’s, no judging just love and fun! Their faces tell me they enjoy shopping here and all the eye candy on my shelves and tabletops. The pretty displays, my sense of humor signs like “Shoplifters will be beaten to death” and the variety of merchandise I buy especially this time of year and filled to the brim! From makeup, to makeup brushes, skincare,earrings,rings,necklaces and bracelets.

Naughty is my state of mind! I love to make my clients laugh. So I served them several drinks…Naughty Elf punch was a big hit and they enjoyed a luxurious box of chocolates.

So bear with me. I’ll be back!

Hope you are enjoying the beauty of the season.

So much to be THANKFUL for!

As you connect with friends and family this Thanksgiving…I hope you welcome them to your door with a big smile, a warm hug and a blank piece of paper and a pen. The piece of paper is for them to write down what they are thankful for. Place all of the paper pieces from the guests and family in a pretty bowl or basket.

When the time is right and things have calmed down but before the evening is over. Allow someone to read what they wrote on the piece of paper or unique shaped piece. Like the bird shaped,pumpkin shaped or a beautiful red paper heart.

I wish I thought to do this lovely idea years ago.

Makes people aware of all they have to be grateful for…especially in the midst of these pandemic times. Some may not even realize how much they really have. Abs that maybe things aren’t as bad as it seems in their lives.

Have you ever tried this idea? I like to do this with some of my favorite clients in my business too.

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate. I want you to know I appreciate your following my beauty and lifestyle blog. I am thankful for the likes and for the kind comments. I am ever grateful that you like the words from my 🧡 heart to yours!

Loving all things fall! 🍁

How about you?

It’s cooler weather and I so love ❤️ fall. I’ve been traveling a bit. The airports are so busy it is so good to be out and about again. Wow how the country is looking amazing with the change of leaves!

Getting my business ready for the holiday season and enjoying life one day at a time.

So they say… “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”

I have been in awe with the beauty of the changing fall leaves, eating an apple a day, sipping apple cider, cozying up to an apple 🥧pie and enjoying the beauty secret in apples.

You asked me if I have a recipe for a face mask with apples and I’ll share one of my faves below.

🍎Do you know apples can fill you up? Sort of like drinking a tall glass of water 💦before a meal. Fills you up fast before you eat.

🍎Eating Apples (with the skin on) are especially good for you.

🍎 I mentioned before in a post I love to make fruit infused water with small slices of red and green apples. Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar makes it extra delicious.

🍎 Apples make a great natural face mask not found in a jar on a store shelf. Fun to make and enjoy with your BFF or family too.

Here’s what you will need:

2 tbsp of crushed oats

1 red or green apple

1 tsp of organic local honey

Mix the above and add grated or puréed apples in a bowl.

Apply to the face and leave on at least 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.

Next apply your fave facial moisturizer and eye gel

The oats in this recipe exfoliate the skin gently. The apples and honey give you plump abs glowing skin. Vitamin C rich and Vitamin A too. Boosts collagen too.

Do you love natural beauty recipes too?

Share with me I’d love to hear any of yours too!

I’m going on the road again!

The fall show season is almost here!

Counting down to the beauty of the fall season and guest speaking at this spa and wellness conference. I am already packing my beauty bags for my class!

After a challenging year and a half we are finally getting back to business and need to refresh,renew and think of a few things new. If you work in the world of beauty and skin care I hope to see you there! Not too late to get your ticket!

Come join us and have some fun! Did I mention the show floor is massive and full of awesome deals?
