Smoothie Shots

I enjoy drinking and making smoothies for my family on Sundays and serving them to my clients too. I especially love πŸ’— to make them with fruit and ingredients that are good for the skin and energizing too.

Here is a pretty looking creamy and dreamy smoothie that is good for you, great for the skins elasticity and the ginger is an anti- inflammatory.

Guys YOU can enjoy drinking it too.

What you will need:

1 cup of bottled πŸ’¦water (not tap)

2 cubes of a Frozen dragon fruit

1/2 cup of blueberries

1 scoop of collagen powder

1 piece of ginger

*Ice cubes optional. I like to add at least one or two. But it is up to you.

Place all of the above in a blender and blend.

Pour, serve and savour every sip and enjoy in a beautiful glass.

FYI

You can serve this smoothie in shot glasses too! Not all shots need to be alcoholic. 😜 Your guests will get a kick out of these small shots too!

I wish you and your career or beauty business nothing but the best! 🍾πŸ₯‚

As we start a fabulous new decade in our lives. It is an even more exciting time as new decade begins.

I don’t believe in New Year Resolutions. They say 10% of people ever keep them. But if they work for you…by all means make them.

What I do believe in is reviewing what worked. What doesn’t. What new do you want to do in this new year?

I hope you will reflect on your career or business and think about what you want to do! What direction? How do you plan on getting there?

Take time for you and chill some too! A clean slate…Ease into this new year one glorious day in your life at a time.

It’s a wonderful life!

Multi-masking works magic on the skin!

Two of my fav’ recipes for a Multi-Masking are below.

My clients often say they have very sensitive skin so for them to love the skin and face they own I like to mix and match face masks. Customizing by hand is so much fun!

I like to make one mask for the T-zone and maybe another on the cheeks. It just depends on what the skin is doing and looking like.

Being Eurasian and love all things Asian. I loveΒ  to use Matcha Powder and a dash of fresh aloe from my outdoor garden or window garden.

What you will need is:

1 teaspoon of matcha powder

3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel (from the plant)

Stir the two together. Apply on a clean face.

Leave on at least 15 minutes and rinse with luke warm water and a wash cloth.

The skin will love it!

 

Lavender Bud Pore Refining Clay Mask

1 teaspoon of bentonite clay

A dash of water say 1/3 of a cup (I eyeball)

A few pieces of lavender buds

Mix all together and make a liquidy paste-like mask.

Apply on a clean face. This aromatherapy mask and clay will make the pores more refined and temporarily tighten the skin.

Leave on the face at least 10-15 minutes. Rinse well 🧽 . Next use your skin toner on a cotton pad and a dash of moisturizer.

The skin will look amazing and the lavender scent will smell and be so relaxing while it dries.

Use on your skin or on your clients.

Take care of your face. It’s the only one you’ve got!

PS

These recipes are from my beauty book coming out in 2020. I hope you’ll enjoy them and stay tuned for more.

 

Palo Santo magic…

Candles and Palo Santo are my go to for so many reasons. Being it is πŸŽƒ Halloween I thought I’d share this aromatic wood with you!

Did you know Palo Santo is actually a tree native to the coast of South America. In Spanish it literally means “Holy Stick”.

It is used to clean and purify a space at work or your home or business. It also is good to do before you declutter and clean a space or room. And it does so much more!

I always recommend and say “Explore beyond your door.”

Buy some and search sites on all it has to offer.

Happy πŸ‘» Halloween πŸŽƒ!
