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.

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!
So if you’re in the beauty business or just want to be in the know here are a few intriguing things they have been using.
Lady Gaga goes straight to her kitchen when it comes to makeup remover uses olive oil to remove her makeup 💄 as well for to hydrate her hair.
Many celebrities rinse their mouth and freshen their breath with coconut oil mouth rinses.
JLo thinks exercise, no smoking and no drinking are her secrets for looking young. I think it’s working! Don’t you?
Actress Catherine Zeta Jones uses slices of fresh strawberries 🍓 and applies them on her teeth to whiten and brighten her teeth. I asked my dentist about this and he actually said it may work!
Tiffany Haddish loves using coconut oil. And also makes a facial scrub with it by adding baking soda to it.
Wendy Williams swears by Gold Bond cream or lotion to keep her skin silky sexy smooth.
Gwenyth Paltrow is pretty game to try a lot of things (just check out her website Goop) when it comes to health and beauty. She also swears by pilates as her fountain of youth.
Nightingale or Bird Nest’s Facials affectionately called bird poop facials are yet another type of skin facial celebrities love. It is an old Asian Beauty secret for brightening and whitening the complexion! But they are also crazy about deep cleaning and facials in general.
Many celebritiesmale and female use a brand called Eminence.
They also use K BeautyKorean Beauty and other brand eye, lip and facial sheet masks as prep before a red carpet event or pre-photo shoots. They also use them in flight on airplanes.
So there you have it if you want to be in the know and what’s trending with a few celebrities right now. Share with your clients and friends. Maybe spend the 4th weekend sipping a cold glass of Sangria and doing self-care like the celebrities.
How time flies going through a global pandemic. First you soak in the information you are told. It is hard to even believe what is happening. The days go by very slowly and seem so surreal. Oh the newness of it all. The new normal. Our stay in place at home becomes your way of life. We have even forgotten the day of the week.
The sun 🌞 still shines,the rain ☔️ still comes down and the birds 🐦 are happily singing away. Spring 🌺 has finally arrived for most of us and life keeps growing and going.
But somehow you know things are different now. While I do have my husband to keep me company in quarantine I do not have any children. But …I do have babies! They sit waiting for me in my business. My charming beauty cottage nestled on a quiet street in a neighborhood of homes and business offices.
My babies are the beauties on my shelves. Pretty things that make you look good,smell good and feel fabulous.
I have days at my studio to organize things, rearrange, answer telephone ☎️ calls and emails and to stock up on our shelves,pack up mail orders 📦 and to above all clean and disinfect even more for this COVID-19.
It is definitely a NEW world and is a different normal right now. In this moment and time we are truly all one!
I worked so hard for what I have achieved and have come a long way. I am sure if you own a business or have and are devoted to a career you know what this feels like too.
I HOPE and pray my clients come back to shop and get dolled up with me. I yearn to pamper skin and paint faces. How about you? How’s your business life? Are you even able to open in your state?
But it will be different and with face coverings,masks and not my usual things. I so enjoyed serving blooming 🍵tea,gourmet coffee and something edible. Sweets or fresh fruit and veggies. But now…not sure. I loved hosting fun and yummy shopping 🛍 events. But for now none will be held. My lipstick red doors are closed. I am not officially open and am just shipping orders.
I MISS my clients faces and want to touch their hands and faces with my beauty magic wands and give them a GIGANTIC HUG.
But now I wait. Patiently to take the next step.
If you own a beauty business … How are you doing?
Caring IS sharing…and I simply had to share this post since I LOVE to entertain my clients as well as my family and friends.This bloggers post is giving me all the yummy feels. I have done Bloody Mary Shots & Quiche,Cocktails,Cosmetics and Cupcakes events I am inspired to host my next event with foodie inspiration with one of these boards with an a la Noreen twist. Enjoy the view!
Hi, I didn’t have brunch today and I desperately wanted to, so after spending half my morning scrolling through brunch-related hashtags on Instagram, I’m here to bring some brunch board ideas to your attention. What’s a brunch board, you ask? It’s more or less a platter of heaven—aka, a charcuterie-board-like spread of breakfast foods. Seriously, what…
I am an all American girl that happens to be Eurasian and my husband says I am a Combination Platter off the Chinese Take Out Menu. People ALWAYS ask me what is my nationality. Even more when I moved from up North to sunny Florida. When I moved here for my husband I was so in love I forgave Florida for the HOT temperatures and the horrific humidity. But as time went by I came to the conclusion I hate the heat and my makeup melting. I also noticed brides and bridal parties hated it too. So, I pulled out my little box of love for my complexion and made them look amazing. This box is my makeup savior and go to. I have used it on my face since I was a teen and now on my clients for TV work, red carpet beauty moments,photo shoots and for my brides and bridal parties.
It is an Ancient Chinese secret handed down from generation to generation.
What is it?
A white looking brownie (yes like the Brownie we eat). It is a hard cake that becomes loose when applied with a powder brush.
It is feather light powder that makes your makeup last longer.
Makes your colors remain true especially when you have issues with your makeup turning colors and helps them remain true.
Great for oily skin and complexions with a bit of acne
Tones down shine!
Sets your makeup!
But wait there’s MORE!
When I make up my face or a client’s face and I accidentally put a bit more blush on or eye shadow too overpowering or doesn’t look right….I simply take a brush,dip into my rice powder and clean up,soften and blend it out.
Oh and not only does it look great on brides and photographs nicely. It also is great for women of a certain age who get steamy and hot flash. Calms the heat and the powder cools the skin with a soft matte finish.
If YOU or your client’s makeup is missing that little something or you crave all things Asian Beauty and or something new this is for YOU and to retail to your clients too!
I don’t think I could live without IT AND a gorgeous lipstick.
I am getting things ready and packing for the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa conference. #IECSC #Flspashow
It is a month away and I always have a fabulous audience and time!
I also have some fave’ spots for food plus fun in the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida area. 🌴 I’ll share them with you from Ft Lauderdale in case you have plans to visit this city. I also love Palm 🏖 Beach and will share my fave places for drinks,food and shopping!
My class for spa and beauty professionals is all about Color and the influence it has on our life and our clients faces and feelings. I am mad about color in decor, makeup, fashion and more! It makes me so HAPPY!
I used to wear only brown and black. NO COLOR. As a NORTHERNER that is all I knew. New Yorker’s live in black. I love black as well.
If you’re a beauty professional like a makeup artist or spa owner your team will love my class. I’ll also share what’s trending, makeup techniques & color consults and what you should consider carrying in your business.
