Apply your favorite hand or body cream over it.

It will lighten up and remove the stains! I have saved many a bride with this recipe.

I remember the days…

When we served rose all day.

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!

When life gives you lots of 🍋 lemons…

My husband bought me not one but two lemon trees 🌳 a few months ago. I am enjoying my life with lemons so much! One tree is outside my business door and another is in my backyard.

So, I get creative and make things! 

I usually kill plants cause I work so much in and out of town. But I am on a roll with aloe plants and lemon trees. They are not only surviving they are thriving!!!food healthy nature water

One of the things I have made is a Lemon Facial Toner.

If you want to make some for yourself or your clients here is a recipe.

What you will need is:

2 fresh lemons (lemon peels only)

1 cup of  bottled water

Place lemon peels in a pitcher. I prefer using a small glass one.

Add the water.

Cover and leave this mixture alone for at least 10 hours or overnight.

Strain the liquid through a coffee filter and pour into a clean and sterilized bottle. This refreshing toner will last up to two weeks.

 Apply to your face with a flat cotton pad round.

Don’t use on acne or rosacea. Just to be on the age side.

Next up…Sparkling lemon water!

You don’t need to buy the lemon flavored sparkling water. You simply need sparkling water 💦 that you added lemon 🍋 slices too! So delightful and really quenches the thirst.

Serve in a wine goblet or antique shop glassware. Feel like royalty. My clients and family love this! And a fresh mint 🍃 leaf for decor.

Lemons are so detoxifying and great for your health.

Hot Tea with a lemon wedge

Nothing like hot tea 🍵 with 🍋.

Now, traditionally I’m not talking Asian tea. I’m talking. Regular tea. And always served in a pretty cup.

Who doesn’t love 💕 to hear the sound of the saucer and cup clinking? Music 🎶 to my ears! And makes people feel so special while sipping away.

I hope you enjoy 😊 and add some lemons 🍋 to your day!

Aloha Detox

I love ❤️ to juice and to celebrate the beauty of juicing with my clients and friends. Lately, my clients are asking for my recipefor a DETOX juice. They want to look better in that teenie & not so teenie bikini 👙 and feel their best too. I am so thrilled to assist. I call this recipe Aloha Detox since I fell in love with exotic and beautiful Hawaii 🌴 and the pineapples and other fresh fruits and veggies there.

Wash and place all of the above in a juicer. I am addicted to a Jack La Lanne juicer.

Pour in a tall chilled glass and enjoy. By the way it is sweet and doen’t taste nasty or healthy at all! Enjoy this drink ANYTIME of year.

Cooling, hydrating, refreshing and detoxifying!
