MOM … The Most Beautiful Word!

Sometimes when I fly ✈️ I speak to my mom in the sky!

It is about to be another tough Mother’s Day for me. Even though my mother died a few years ago the sting is still real. It lives with me. My heart ❤️ is sad. How about you have you lost your mom too? Do you have similar feelings?

But one thing that comforts me is I have many beautiful memories! No one can take that away from us.

I so miss my mom!

❤️ I miss her lovely smile.

❤️ I miss her beautiful baby blue eyes.

❤️ I miss her Polish meals and speaking Polish to her!

❤️ I miss her burnt meals.

❤️ I miss her hugs!

So I am going to make the best of today and think happy thoughts of our times and years together that I was LUCKY to have!

If you’re a MOM! I wish you a delicious and beautiful day!

For Peeps sake…

Why can’t I stop eating those iconic marshmallow Peeps chicks 🐣 and bunnies 🐰??? I am not picky about the color either. “Hello,yellow, mint,purple and blue”… it doesn’t matter what color it is I LOVE them ALL !!!

I know better and my skin and body do too!

I am a twin and I think one side of me 💕loves sweet and delightful on the tongue. The other side of me 💕 loves, broccoli, green peppers, celery,sweet potatoes, mixed salad greens,corn,apples,bananas and more!

For Peeps sake… do you have this sweet and squishy marshmallow obsession?

Let me know. Let’s chat 💬 Peeps!

My Easter table…

One of my most cherished memories since childhood are the Easter 🐣 eggs. Not your ordinary colored eggs but hand painted with old world charm. The Polish and Ukranian neighborhoods made them, sold them and displayed them at art festivals. Oh how gorgeous they were. And even as a make-up artist I could never draw or painted the way they did.

The most beautiful hand-painted Easter eggs!

The art is called Pisanki… which means to write. A centuries old tradition and still created and celebrated today.

You can also find them at online stores and art walks in wooden form. You can decorate your home or holiday table with them on Easter 🐣 🥚 or year round.

Today I am making an Easter meal with Polish kielbasa, pierogi,glazed beets and rye bread (since I don’t have that sweet bread babka).

My mom will be celebrated in my heart 💜 today. She was a wonderful mom and lovely and Polish. I’ll toast to her with a shot of blackberry brandy.

My southern husband enjoys all kinds of food and I’m lucky for that because he’s not just a meant and potatoes man on a daily basis. We dine out, pick up take-out or cook with international bites and delights. Some recipes we get online but others are discovered from our ✈️ travels.

How about you? What are some of your favorite memories from Easter growing up or now?

Happy Easter, Passover or Ramadan… wherever you are in our beautiful world.

It’s Creamy & DREAMY to the tongue!

Winter is finally really here in Florida. It is in the 30’s and the palm trees aren’t swaying they are freezing. And my least fav’ are the drizzly gray days before me!

So today I made HOT chocolate in the crock pot!

What made it such a big hit was….the dollop of FLUFF on top of each mug we drank and were not done. The day isn’t over yet. It is so cold!

A spoonful or two of this creamy and dreamy Fluff adds just the right amount of yumminess. So dreamy your guests or family will notice!

If you happen to love marshmallows like me…go for two teaspoons of it and drop it in the  center of a cup of steamy hot chocolate.It will be LOVE at first sip and you’ll want to lick the cup and spoon too.

What you will need to make this hot chocolate 🍫 is:

1 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups of heavy cream

2 cups of milk chocolate chips

5 or 6 cups of low fat milk

1 scoop of vanilla bean

Embellish as you wish: scoop of FLUFF marshmallow, cloves, cinnamon or a stick of it and or a chocolate candy stick.

I hope you’ll try this recipe soon.

Enjoy and keep warm my WP followers and new visitors to my blog…come back for more.

Ho! Ho! Ho! 🎅🎄

Did I ever tell you I use to be a Santa’s Helper at the mall? I loved ❤️that job!

Counting down to Santa’s arrival and the beauty of Christmas Eve! I took care of my last client. Shipped the last holiday mail order 📦 and closed my business doors. I wish the holiday season was like before. But it is not the same for brick and mortar businesses. Although we are trying to hang in there. Again this holiday it was hard to speak to people with face masks 😷 on and not hear them clearly or most of all see their lovely smile!

I want to take this moment to say I hope you have a HAPPY Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I know many people celebrate it tonight and go to church tomorrow. I know every family has their own ritual. Blessings to you and your family and friends too!

Put something cozy on and take time and chill and sip a cup of cheer.

What are you serving Santa tonight? A delicious cookie 🍪? A cocktail 🍹? A glass of milk? Do tell!

I’m serving him a hot chocolate with a chocolate marshmallow bomb inside. And a home-made cookie.

I believe in ❤️ Santa!

Blessed!

I’m so blessed and I want to be a blessing to others. That is why I opened up a beauty & wellness brand & company. It is also the reason why I started this blog….

I have to admit it isn’t easy being “up” when the world all around us is crashing “down.” But I must. It’s in my DNA.

I simply wanted to take this time to say THANK YOU for following my blog, for your likes on my posts, for your kind words and for being there on the other side of the screen.

I try and give you a glimpse into my life, beauty,skincare, recipes and travels. ✈️

I also want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving 🍁 for those who celebrate. I am thankful for YOU!

Breast Cancer isn’t just a female thing!

💕

MEN can get it too!

So don’t forget to tell your sweetie to get himself checked out too. Lumps in the breast aren’t normal.

And how about you?

Have you had a mammography or at least check your breasts too?

YOU matter! Stay well and on top of your health too.

And just a reminder. I had Breast Cancer but not in the breast but ON the breast. It was Squamous cell carcinoma. Mayo performed Mohs surgery on me for hours. It was a bit deep. They said it’s not common. So watch out for raised spots or dark dots, reddish spots that suddenly appear on your skin.

Be aware and beware!

Halloween is coming!

I think every day is a reason to celebrate …now even more so!

I haven’t celebrated Halloween in two years! Have you?

Covid19 and the safety of our kids health I decided not to offer candy and or treats!

BUT this year I am so READY to celebrate. I love to eat healthy! BUT I also love 💕 all things candy! That is why I named my blog Beauty Candy.

I actually FILL the old school mini trick or treat bags. I find so much JOY to brighten the children’s day in my own way!

Each year I try and do something different.

How about you? Do you plan on celebrating Halloween 🎃 with Trick or Treaters at your door?
