Summer days…speaking to you?

Coconut LIPS

Me too…maybe it is time for you to explore what’s around the corner or take a day trip or two!

There is this town where they have a lot of amazing things as well as the Fountain of Youth. So much to explore,so little

time. Even the coconut monkeys wear lipstick! You know how that thrills me!

It is in Florida in a quaint town called St. Augustine. This town is approximately 45 minutes away. Yet, I am hardly ever out that way. I am always working. Either in town or headed on an airplane.Yet it haunts me. I LOVE THIS CITY!

Speaking of which it has an awesome Ghost Tour at night. Sangria reigns supreme and it is such a charming city with a major  Spanish influence.Just walking on this city’s streets brick by brick takes you back in time.

Perhaps you have a place near you that is calling out to you. Enjoy the last weeks of summer through mid- September too. There is still time to enjoy the view.

Green Tea Infused Sangria

photo green teaI LOVE all kinds of sangria but never heard of this one. Until I found it in a magazine. Here is one I made this week and so enjoyed it’s exotic Asian twist. I hope you will try and make it this weekend and let me know how you like it. If you have a recipe you would like to share with me. Please do!

What you will need is:

1 bottle white wine

1 1/2 cups of freshly brewed green tea

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of lime juice

Before adding fruit,stir ingredients until sugar dissolves.Add melon like honeydew or cantaloupe and chill.Garnish with lime slices before serving.

Green tea,melons and wine…who knew?

Stir up some delicious fun and make this one!

Fly me to the Moon…LOVE

l told you I would share with you one of my fave’ products gifted to me from an awesome flight attendant who just happens to be a nurse and an esthetician at the same time.I met her when I gave a speech in Las Vegas a few years at a spa conference. Now, a few months ago I met her again but this time in the air in First Class. I inspired her so much…she has come out with her own skincare collection with adorable names all relating to flying and the toll travel and life has on your skin. See two posts ago for more on her brand. She and DermAire wants everyone to have First Class Skin care!

Here it is:

Crew O2 Emergency Oxygen Mask http://www.dermaire.com

DermaAire says it is a great post-flight recovery mask! Especially after flying most of the day. This glistening skin revitalizing treatment hydrates and awakens the skins youthful glow. I call it awesome in a jar. It is my new go to face mask. A clear yet creamy gel that you only need to apply a thin coat of it. Leave it on 20 minutes to give your skin what it wants and needs. OR Shari Hoy says apply and leave on all night.

I am sipping Chardonnay and wearing this mask right now blogging tonight too.

I will finish tonight with a bubble bath with epsom salts and surrender myself to a GOOD NIGHT of skin bliss.CO2 MASK 8-15

SHARI flight attendent beauty

Flying is fun but exhausting!!! I recently took a flight where I was asked by a flight attendant is my name Noreen Young? I replied yes, why do you ask? She replied I attended a spa show where you guest spoke and I so LOVED your class!!! Then she handed me her business her business card above…I was in awe.  Priceless isn’t it?

She said I inspired her so much she began to look at her skin and decided she needed to do something about it to make it better.She is a triple threat. A flight attendant,a nurse and an esthetician. She sent me some things I could not resist using. Tomorrow I will share my fave products from her line.  If you want your skin to look sublime you have to give it some time!

The various nuts and berries are filled with anti-aging beauty,Vitamin E, A and zinc.They also are great for the immune system,vision,stress relief and cholesterol too.  Asians look at Goji berries as long life and good health musts!

Sundance!

Sundance Mountain resort is a charming hidden gem in the mountains and valleys of beautiful UTAH.

On a sunshiny day I went to work and play to UTAH.Sundance was on my TO DO List. ALL I have to say is Robert Redford loves US! Sundance

And so does God. I have been to Utah in cold winter months in freezing weather and tons of snow. This time was different. It was sunny no humidity and the people are amazing. I ate my way around the towns,shopped local farmers markets and enjoyed a few days letting the sun dance on my face!  I wanted to go for a quick night of glamping. You know a glamour girl does some light camping but my husband laughed at me. HE knows me so well.

The most amazing peaceful place was in Sundance resort and mountains. There are quite a few places to drink and dine. I had my first as they called polygamy beer…it was from a local brewery and it was delicious and refreshing. The food at the Owl Bar was awesome and so were the other places. The staff all over the resort were friendly and helpful.

No, I did not see Robert Redford in person BUT I did see pictures of him all over the grounds from movies he had been in.

If you have never been…make a visit to Sundance Mountain Resort a must see.

HAPPY National Lipstick Day!

On the Hunt for a New Mascara this summer???

Maybe this mascara is for you! Blinc_Mascara-web

If you are looking for a mascara that doesn’t run and give you a black ring around your eye running down toward your cheeks too. Try Blinc mascara. It is a no-smudge,no-hassle mascara.

Instead of painting your eye lashes you tube them with tiny water-resistant tubes around your lashes. Not a conventional mascara. Once applied,this mascara tubes and binds your lashes and cannot and does not run,smudge,clump or flake,even if you cry at your wedding,workout,jog or rub your eyes!!!

You simply remove it with a luke warm washcloth and no makeup remover needed.

Today I am wearing the deep purple. I LOVE the way it brightens my eye and take away a tired dark circled appearance.

Celebrities use it and you will love it too…if you want easy to remove and longer lasting smudge free mascara.
