There’s something about color. Color is therapy and with our daily intake of so much we need to chill and think the color blue. How about the beauty of the ocean 🌊 above? Isn’t it pretty and calming to your nerves and lovely to the eye?
Hues of blue:
Have a calming effect on us.
Lower stress levels.
Decrease ❤️ heart rate .
Makes us feel relaxed!
I love to teach my clients and audiences about many things. Surrounding ourselves with color is one of them.
A few of my clients love my colorful door they decided to tweak their door color from aqua, another chose a vibrant royal blue, another a sky blue! They told me they love ❤️ the serene door hue and entry to their home or summer home so much.
They never thought color could make such a difference!
If you’re needing a sense of calm all the way around and to shut your mind off too! Try the beauty of BLUE!
It seems as though we not only had quite a year in 2020 but we also are having quite a different 2021 than we planned. I think some people think that once the calendar changed to a sparkling new year filled with everything we hope for or want…our pandemic and daily lives would magically change kind of overnight. But it hasn’t really. The world 🌎 is still sick and people are feeling all kinds of emotions and feelings too. Me included.
I am really sad so many people are dying. BUT I am thrilled there is a vaccine and boy was that a miracle to come in the same year of the pandemic! We are so lucky!
And in these challenging times what I have come to realize is EVERYsingle day and minute in our lives is a GIFT. It is not just a nice thing to say. It is TRUE! If you’re reading my blog right now you MADE IT and you’re still here and alive.
So, at this time my heart is filled with GRATITUDE and I look to the light and have so much hope. If you are feeling blue you can do this too. Keep going. Stay positive. Keep the faith. We have got to live our lives not die inside.
Here are a few things that give me some happiness and I want to share them with you today. Maybe they will help you in some way.
Surround yourself with people you ❤️love. Extend your safe bubble of people by reaching out and calling to others. Reconnecting and chat on the phone with them. I’ve done it and it made me and the other people I’m calling feel so good too. People need to connect and stay connected.
Write aletter or create a card from scratch and mail it or hand it to someone you care about. Tell them they are loved. Share your day. See how they are.
I think every day should feel like Valentines day.
Fill your space with things to make you feel HAPPY or put a smile on your face. Check around your home and see what you might have before you go out shopping for something. I recently discovered something while cleaning my dining room hidden in a drawer under some cloth napkins. I ordered some gold flatware. I completely forgot about them. They are so gorgeous and chic. Why haven’t I used them in years? I shined them up and am putting them to use and enjoying these beauties. DAILY.
Strategically fill your space home or office with affirmations and words of wisdom. On your wall, on your desk, on a shelf at your bedside table.
Don’t you feel good looking at this already?
It would be great on a child or teens home classroom desk too for encouragement! Don’t you think so?
Make your bathroom an oasis to escape to. Shower or bath? You’ll love the little touches will make.
SOAK your cares away! A bath is always a good idea! Or add a little something to your shower routine. Like a shower bath bomb. Or some new hair & body products.
Fill your bathroom with luxurious hydrating soaps. Nowadays there are so much to choose from. I like to buy soaps in all my travels. Especially internationally. So fun. Find some plush towels and washcloths. Switch up that same old decor. Give your bathroom a lift and hang a sign that you can find like “Hello Beautiful”. OR “It’s a Good Day to have a good day”.
Flowers and plants add SUNSHINE to your day and plants purify and can detox the air. So simple but gives you so much of a happy feeling. WAKE UP & SMELL the flowers!
Or enjoy the serene feeling of plants 🌱 and all things green! 🍃
I want to travel again and discover what is behind this fabulous door!
I want to wear this luscious tangerine 🍊 lipstick when I do.
I want to sip a cup like this when I get there!
I want to pick these out from a flower market and bring them to my hotel room to enjoy my entire stay.
I want to enjoy this view and sunset. I saw one almost as gorgeous as this in Colorado and it’s beauty and the colors are still etched in my memory. I pray for our lives and have hope we will enjoy life again.
We must wash our hands often, mask up,do our part in social distancing and above all practice patience! What about you?
I have a whole prop house full of ❤️ hearts and kisses 💋all ready for the season of love!
Time to decorate if you haven’t already begun in your home, office,spa or salon.
Got left over red ribbon? Curling ribbon? Red wrapping paper or other festive things from the Christmas holidays?
Bring them out and save some money 💵 by using up the rest of the trimmings or anything red decor. (Pink or metallics work well too)
Barter with a business or client or family member who bakes and serve some yummy cupcakes, pie, cakes or even chocolates.
I also like to do a chocolate love ❤️ tree. I bought a cone shaped styrofoam piece from Michaels and covered it with parchment paper. I bought a terracotta flower pot and filled it with foam and covered it in faux grass. Looks like a 🌱 and a tree. Got it?
Next I take chocolates from a box of nice chocolates. Stick a tooth pick into a chocolate and pop it in the cone tree.
I fill the entire space of that cone tree with chocolates. Over the Valentine season we put them out the week of and serve them and a cup of decadent coffee. After 5:00 or on a Saturday we offer Champagne 🍾 spritzers. Or serve them straight up.
We decorate the table with confetti’s, shimmering glitter or conversation hearts. Cheap and easy!
We prepare 3 bodacious giveaways!
And do a drawing on Valentine’s ❤️ Day! Clients love it. We also do a drawing for Galentine’s Day.
We also make our lipsticks 💄and lip treatment 💋products or services onspecial.Who doesn’t love a SALE?
I am getting things ready and packing for the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa conference. #IECSC #Flspashow

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.
