Happy Halloween!

Trick or Treat smell my feet give me something good to eat.

WOW! What a year and Halloween day and night it will be this year.

I love Halloween. It is the one day we can REALLY get creative,express ourselves, be someone else for a day. I love this day from the decor to the candy and the Trick Or Treaters I adore! I also love spooky movies! How about you?

Fun Fact:

I have had the pleasure of making up the one and only actress Linda Blair from the Exorcist! No, she wasn’t spinning her head and spitting up green and it wasn’t for the movie. It was for an event she was attending. She has an awesome heart ❤️ and Is a lovely woman. I will never forget meeting her!

Unfortunately, it isn’t going to be quite the same this year. I am so missing my clients presence and our party atmosphere at my beauty studio.

I will miss serving them Pretty Witches Brew Punch and bewitching and spooky edible delights.

Here is an easy recipes for a snack that my clients have enjoyed at my studio and you can enjoy with family,friends and clients too.

What you will need for this recipe:

Rice Chex cereal

Banana chips

Dried chopped pineapples

Dried cherries

Semisweet chocolate chips

All you need to do is place the above in a large serving bowl and stir together.

I usually eyeball measurements if you want more or less of one item versus another.

What you get is a healthy fruity combination,a dose of chocolate with the right amount of crunch!

And if you don’t feel like making this recipe above you can simply enjoy some store bought candy.

I hope whatever you do today you have some FUN!

Life is really yummy and so beautiful!

We’re headed into another long weekend! 🌴🌞So looking forward to chilling away. If your business is open maybe you can serve something refreshing. Or simply enjoy this recipe at home with your family. I so love to entertain CLIENTS.family and friends. I even wrote a book on it Entertaining in your Salon or SPA.

Strawberry Mango Lemonade

Blend and give it a whirl with 1 cup of  frozen strawberries, 2 cups of frozen mango chunks and 2 cups of lemonade that you made.Or cheat and use store bought already made.

This recipe makes 4 glasses of refreshing and delicious lemonade. More if you use smaller glasses.

Garnish with a pineapple chunk for a tropical twist. Since we can’t quite getaway at least we can pretend we are with a few of life’s simple treasures.

Stay hydrated!

When did you get your last one?

It is skin cancer awareness month and it is time to remind ourselves to pick up a new tube of your fave sunscreen.

No, last years Sunscreen 🧴 tube won’t work. Old, once opened or if stored in a bright, warm or hot place it has lost its potency to protect. The formulas not the same. You need to start fresh!

People in Florida have begun to go to the beach 🏖 again and signs They have been there are are showing. I see red lobster 🦞 faces, peeling faces, dry inflamed skin. It isn’t very pretty as they race to chase the sun and a bit of color. I realize people are restless. A pandemic isn’t much fun is it?

But SKIN CANCER is probably worse. Especially if it is Melanoma. Skin cancer can be fatal. Protect that baby and your children and your own skin! DAILY not just during skin cancer awareness month. While you are at it call your dermatologist and book your annual exam. Mine is booked later this month.

If you own a spa, salon or beauty business and you’re back open again or have an online shop. Consider retailing sun 🌞 protection. Sunscreen & Bronzer are a winning combination!

I often hear women ask… What is your beauty secret for looking younger? Or I want to look younger fast! What can I do?

I think you know the answer. Skin cancer is a sneaky disease. Arm yourself! Please wear SUNSCREEN and throw on some shade too! 😎

You CAN enjoy the sunshine. You just need to do it wisely.
