It isn’t a party without …

Pixie Dust Sprinkles…

I recently discovered on Instagram a Florida owned company that offers these Pixie Dust Sprinkles in a variety of hues. Some of my favorites are: A luxurious Sea Glass that gives me a walk on the beach or mermaid vibes. a gorgeous mix of metallic and patriotic themed hues of God Bless America and a blend of sophisticated hues of Luxe Vibes.

I LOVE 💗 anything that sparkles,glows or is color filled. I also love to throw a party in my home or business. Even if it for a party of two. Every day we wake up is a reason to celebrate. Right?

Not your ordinary sprinkles they add FUN to any kitchen creation. I have played with my little nieces and nephews and test drove them on my husband. All passed with flying colors! This weekend I am going to dip some champagne flutes and celebrate something bubbly in style. The kids will love a pretty glass of pixie dust rimmed glasses too. Why not try them embellishing a glass of Aloha punch or yummy pink lemonade for the kids.

I also like them on:

Mini Cupcakes

A slice of banana topped with whipped cream or peanut butter or honey

Cake

Waffles

Pancakes

French Toast

Pies

Sprinkle on top of a bowl of popcorn

Or simply placed them a decor on the plate when serving dessert like gelato or ice cream.

The skies the limit. Use your imagination and have some fun with your family and the kids.

Let’s have fun and create some pixie dust magic in our kitchens this long beautiful weekend!

A peek from a beauty show floor!

I am back from Las Vegas attending and guest speaking at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference. I discovered a few products and fun finds. Todays blog post is all about lashes for days!

LASHES are at the top of the list these days for beauty lovers deserted on an island. Mascara rules! To some faux lashes are a must instead.

False Lashes were everywhere from faux strips to lash extensions.

Blinc Mascara is still HOT! Don’t paint your lashes tube them! Rinses off with Luke warm water and a washcloth. No running down the face black mascara eyes. No waking up with raccoon eyes.

Lash Lifts are still IN and an ever growing trend.

The beauty product women must have besides lipstick 💄 is her mascara.

Why not get some lashes for your car. Car Lashes the original! Don’t bat an 👁 eye just go give them a try! Buy a pair. They come in a set of black car lashes (which I own) pink & metallic.

Invented by a gentlemen with his supportive wife by his side Robert & Dottie Small they created and founded a GREAT quality design that continues to sweep the nation! You gotta see these lashes on my car!

So stinking CUTE! And sexy! What a great way to customize your ride.

NOT just for teens, women of all ages use them! Every time I look at mine I swoon to to the moon!

If bling is your thing LIVE a little and treat yourself to these fun, fabulous car lashes and drive to your next adventure in fashionable style!

You’ll enjoy miles of smiles and trust me people will notice!

For more information check out:http://www.CarLashes.com A Turbo Style Products,LLC production.

For now I’ve got to get rid of this jet ✈️ lag, unpack, check Biz emails and calls to return and get ready for a brand new week!

Oh and to feed my southern husband. He’s missed my cooking! 😉

Kisses 💋 from Las Vegas!

I’m in beautiful and always fabulous Vegas! The heat is on. The other day it was 116 degrees.

Have you ever been?

Today I guest spoke at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference show. I had a sold out crowd! I so LOVE what I do!

💋

Anyone who is anyone in beauty and hair is here! It is so exciting. I have missed guest speaking since Covid. But it’s beginning to look like a sense of normalcy and happiness!

The show floor was filled to the brim with so many booths. I attended a few classes and shopped and explored. I’m exhausted.

Tonight we had dinner at a delicious place called Orchids Gardens. They serve all kinds of Dim Sum 🥟 all day. I have been going to this place for years.

I’m taking notes 📝 and checking out all that I can and that is trending!

So please … Stay tuned. The time zone for me is a 3 hour difference and I’m starting to fade. Im going to take a bubble bath 🛀 and relax.

Then, I’m joining my husband for a cocktail 🍸 and eating a box of chocolates together in bed.

Sweet Dreams!

Get ready for…National KISSING day!

Get those lips ready for kissing with this easy peasy recipe!

What you will need is:

2 teaspoons of organic honey

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

1 drop of lavender essential oil AFTER it is warmed up

  • Sometimes for visual appeal I add a couple of dried lavender buds if you have handy. Stir all of above and this well.

Mix above except for the lavender oil in a sauce pan on your stove top. Or you can put in microwave. Just warm it for a few seconds.

Place in a mini bowl or in an empty jar. Good for a few treatments but best to use all in a few days. Your husband or sweetie or teen daughter may just love this treatment too.

Apply to clean dry lips with clean fingers or a Q-tip and apply it all AROUND the lip area too. It will be a bit gooey and maybe messy to you but so worth the effort! What you will have is silky smooth 💋 lips!

Now you are all ready for kissing or to be kissed!

Happy National Kissing Day!😘

Don’t you just love ❤️ to be kissed? And to hug & kiss? 💋

Packing is exhausting!

Especially after a year and half of NO airplane ✈️ travel. not sure what to really expect this travel trip! But two flights and flying with a mask 😷 on is going to be a bit of a challenge. But I know I’ll make it. This pandemic isn’t quite over.

I’ve spent ALL day packing my luggage 🧳 , unpacking and planning my trip. Packing my clothes and beauty supplies for my class requires precise packing as it must conform to weight limits and that’s always a task for a woman! Namely me.

Don’t ya just love 💕 my luggage? I got it from TJMaxx before the pandemic and it’s so cool 😎 rolling it around. I’ve been doing the happy dance with it during the pandemic. Waiting for this time to happen and travel on an airplane again!

I’m excited to get away and guest speak at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference again. Alongside the International Beauty Show. Both shows are absolutely amazing.

I get high when I fly! Because I love to fly!

I can’t wait to meet my class of beauty professionals,dermatologists,plastic surgeons and spa owners. The show attracts beauty and wellness professionals from all over the 🌎 world. It’s going to be different this year with social distancing and on and off face masks in 108 degrees.

But I know it’s going to be FABULOUS!

Stay tuned I’ll share my work and play adventure!

If you’re a beauty PRO maybe I’ll see you there!

Priyanka Chopra’s Skincare Beauty Secret

I’m in love with all things DIY, cooking and whipping up beauty in my kitchen or bathroom.

I fell in love ❤️ with a recipe I discovered actress Priyanka Chopra’s mom shared with her.

I am addicted to doing it. It is a scalp treatment that hydrates the hair. I also find it gives my hair a lot of shine.

🍯 Honey

1 🥚 egg

Scoop of Organic Yogurt (plain)

Make a paste. Mix well. If you find it dries a bit add a dash of whole milk and stir again before applying to your hair.

Rinse well after leaving on at least 20 or 30 minutes.

I like to light a candle, listen to music 🎶 and relax my mind in the bathtub while this treatment is on my hair. You might like to try it one day too.

Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo & rinse.

Sweet Dreams!

Relax with a cup of Chai Tea!

Happy National Nail Polish day!

How was your day?

I treated myself to an OPI nail polish today. Strawberry 🍓 Margarita to be exact. A pretty dreamy pink with maybe a tease of coral.

I was looking for my all time summer favorite Kyoto Pearl! But could not find it. If you do… it looks amazing with a tan (sunless) and is such a great neutral shimmery white silver hue.

I also treated myself to a Strawberry 🍓 Margarita. It was so HOT in Florida today!

Tell me what’s your favorite brand and color nail polishes? I’d like to know. And stay tuned as I will be posting some nail tips you’ll enjoy in a future post.

I love hearing from you.

I had a Dermaplane Facial and…

I discovered a skin care place on Instagram in the town I live in and wanted to get a facial.

I usually get my facials all over when I travel in and out of the states. Some people tour museums I tour and enjoy spas and different cultures for beauty,customs and food. I so LONGED for one. I have not had a facial since days before the pandemic arrived. I chose this facial place not from reviews but because of the name Happy Face Skin Care. How cute! And since happiness is my happy place as I choose the sunny 🌞 side of life I decided this is where I wanted to go.

I do have a daily beauty and skincare regime and also give myself at home facials but they are NOT the same as seeing a PRO. If you’ve gone for facials you know what i mean.

Once I arrived and got cozy in the esthetician and owners facial bed I was told that by her that facials were TREATMENT based facials not perse relaxing spa type facials.

I never went to a spa that did that. She examined my skin a bit and got to cleansing and double cleansing and made sure my skin was very very clean.

She prepped my skin meticulously. She asked me questions of a personal nature and saw I was open to chatting and not falling asleep during the facial. Good thing to know a true beauty PRO does not kiss and tell. Your privacy and what you say in that room and your skin is very important to them. They respect your privacy.

By the way, I have never fell sleep myself but like a massage some people DO fall asleep in the middle of the treatment. This facial and place was not that type of facial. She had a nice gentle touch but the facial was not the usual facial experience you think of.

No shoulder massage. No hand and foot massage and placed in heated mittens and booties. Just an aromatic candle and her skilled hands. Because the owner had troubled skin growing up she developed a passion for skin care and decided this was the career she wanted. Angie Pablo really loves what she does and it shows!

While I know about Dermaplaning I do not do this service. Again you always want to see a PRO.

Here’s what I discovered.

Dermaplaning is safe and painless. It is a cosmetic/facial procedure that removes the top layers of your skin to hopefully reveal a brighter,smooth youthful look. The results they say last only a few weeks.

Dermaplaning does NOT remove wrinkles and years of sun damage.

You will not leave with a red inflammed face from it or any of her extractions. Sometimes the esthetician may knick your skin but that heals fast from it sort of is like when a man shaves.

Have you ever had a facial or a Dermaplaning Facial? Do tell and share your thoughts!

I liked my Dermaplaning Facial treatment and am happy I tried it. I look forward to going back to this happy calming place again.

PS

If you have sensitive or very sensitive skin,active acne, rosacea and psoriasis it can worsen these conditions.

Tone,Tighten and Glow Me Up!

I don’t know about you but I feel a little bit off. This pandemic is still with us, my usual positive spirit is off and my skin needs a little LOVE. Not just from a dream face cream or eating the right stuff but something else. I discovered a good book and found a fabulous read for you to enjoy and actually put to use this summer.

It is called Face Fitness by an esthetician,yoga teacher, a chakra meditation instructor and working mom! I don’t know how she was able to make this book happen with three children. Her name is Patricia San Pedro.

There are a plethora of skin care tips, tricks and exercises for the face. No yoga or exercise studio to drive to. Easy to do at home. Or in a hotel room while I’ll be traveling again soon.

Just launched …

I have a few favorites so far but I am still trying to master them before I do some others. But it is fun to explore. Even as a beauty and skin professional I am learning something new. We never stop learning do we?

Since I am MAD about the lips I find I am crazy about the Lip Cardio exercise. Glow Flow is yet another one I am practicing. Neck Detox is a great one to get the blood flowing and bye bye to the impurities.

On this Self-Care Sunday think about what you can do for yourself. Not just your family, the sweetie in your life or friends. You NEED to take care of one and only you!

I know many of you think you need Botox,filler and filters but think again. There is a healthy alternative for you that will rev up your skin,tighten,tone and make you feel and look happier in that skin.

I am embracing my face and enjoying and taking one beautiful minute and day at time. I hope you do too!

LOVE on your skin!
