I love fruits and veggies! Over the years I not only served up some delicious treats for my family. I started to serve my clients fresh juice potions for their skin and health. So today I am sharing one of those recipes with you!
My Cantaloupe 🍈 Crush!
All you need for this drink recipe is:
4 cups of chilled fresh cantaloupe
1 cup of cool 🍋 Lemon juice
1 tbsp. Local 🍯 honey
1 tiny piece of peeled ginger or grated ginger
I serve the juice in pretty glasses or in mini shot glasses.
😎If you want to make it a little tropical 🌴 or you’re entertaining at home. Add 1/4 cup of good rum.
Place cubes and cantaloupe, lemon juice,honey and ginger in a blender.
Oh how I love to go to the Farmer’s Market and spread my shopping LOVE.
I also love the crunch and goodness of an apple. I like the green apples. But red are delicious too.You know what they say “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
I even scoop up and eat the rest of the apple left from making this mask.
Here is a recipe a client shared with me for a mask I have enjoyed for years. I like to use it on the face and neck especially around this time of apple picking year.
What you need to Make DIY this face mask:
1 fresh apple grated or pureed
2 Tbsp of crushed oats
1 Tsp of organic honey
Put all the above in a small bowl. Apply it to a clean face with clean hands or a facial mask brush. It may be a little messy for you. But so worth it. If you want to make it more moist add some bottled (not tap) water for a creamier consistency.
Leave this recipe mix on the face at least 15 minutes.
Beauty benefits include a gentle exfoliation while the apple and honey leave the skin hydrated,plump and glowing.
Please note: IF you are allergic to any of these ingredients do not use the ingredient you might be allergic to.
This natural face mask is great for normal to combination skin.
If you are looking for a product at a spa, skin clinic and online that packs a pretty beauty punch with the benefits of apples malic acid. Great for even the most sensitive he skin!

The company says “An Apple 🍏 🍎 a day will peel wrinkles away!”
Although I don’t have many wrinkles… I’ll take it.
I miss seeing my clients in my makeup studio. I miss touching their faces! I miss giving them hugs too. Now with the pandemic things are so very different. I have NOT opened my beauty cottage YET. The Covid-19 numbers upticking here in Florida I don’t want to yet. I care about my clients safety and the health of my family.
I also remember the good old days when we would serve them all kinds of treats and drinks. From sugar cookies dipped in chocolate and lavender buds and chocolate dipped strawberries to sparkling drinks. Rose wine 🍷 was the last drink we served them in March.
Here is one of the recipes I enjoyed serving them. I thought you might enjoy this coming weekend. Or tonight!
Rose Sparkler with Raspberries and Lemons.

1 bottle of chilled rose

2 tsp.of sugar
2 tbsp. of lemon juice
Sliced lemons and raspberries for embellishment!
Mash the raspberries with sugar and lemon juice in a pitcher. Top with sparkling rose. Serve over ice with the sliced lemons and raspberries.
My clients are crying as their lips and skin are so dry! But today it is in the 80’s in Florida so go figure I am actually sweating after picking rosemary from my garden for dinner.
Winter is not pretty nor kind to our skin!
So this is what I do for my clients skin OR recommend they give to themselves in a pinch while at home.
