Oh how I have missed YOU and blogging too! I know I’ve been “missing in action”. It is so unlike me not to post as I love sharing all things beauty,travel and foodie with you.
I have been traveling ✈️ for work and play. Puerto Rico, California, Palm Beach 🏝 Florida. Oh what glorious fun! When I work I always fit in time to enjoy a city and add a day or two of adventure and fun!
But with travel and a busy schedule comes a chance of getting a cold or worse. So I started to get symptoms of a cold. I went to the doctor right away to nip it! They gave me cough medicine and antibiotics. It’s wasn’t fun! But it wasn’t Covid or the flu that is going around.
After that came an unexpected late in the season hurricane in 🌴Florida! All whirling around while I was sick in bed.
I had to get back to work as soon as I could for Black Friday and Shop Small Saturday days at my beauty bungalow. So I did but then who knew? I’d be bit by three angry WASPS 🐝 three different days. My leg swelled like a killer whale. I was limping with laryngitis too as the upper respiratory infection wasn’t done with me too!
My husband loved that part! All I could do was squeak. So tough!
So you see I’ve really been through hell and back. I’m tired from all the medications and trying to work and keep it all together. I have to take care of my clients and their holiday shopping needs with my Beauty Elves at my business.
I do want to share some beauty & foodie recipes with you but I’ve got to work. I have not even begun Christmas & Chanukah shopping yet. How about you? Are you in a holidaze and going crazy right now too?
If you are… I hear you and am right there with you! Hang in there.
This used to be ME (minus THE tattoo) sunbathing 😎 in the summers in N.Y.C. Then I moved to Florida and sunbathed a bit more too.
UNTIL I got smarter. Sun smart to be exact.
I got squamous cell carcinoma and it wasn’t very beautiful or golden. I found a little brown raised spot ON my breast not in my breast. The Dr told me it isn’t very common. But common or rare I needed it gone.
I was terrified. Thousands of dollars $$$ in Drs. visits and a special surgery called Mohs to remove it at Mayo Clinic. It was a day I decided to never sunbathe again.
I love to whip up things in my beauty kitchen! One of my favorites especially this time of year is a facial steam. Not only do I like to use a humidifier in the treatment room I also love to whip this up.
What you will need is:
2 quarts of distilled water
1/2 cup of of fresh rose petals
Boil water. Add the flower petals. Allow it to cool a bit. Place towel over your clients head. Have her lean in towards the steamy brew. Do this for at least 4 minutes. 5 is even better. Great for the skin and the nasal passages too.
If your client is not into the scent of roses. Try another herb 🌿 or flower like fresh mint.
I find this so relaxing and refreshing. After a long day of doing facials and other services you will too!
