Delta Airlines,Travel and more!

airplane seat POD

I love to travel for work but I love to play too. When I visit a city I don’t just stay the time my business trip is for I stay a little bit more. If you read my blog…I am all about explore!

This time I was in First Class on an airplane that is usually used for International flights. I got lucky. The seats are like this. What you see is my purse and tote bag filled with beauty & fashion magazines and I had my own large screen and HUGE chair that goes back they call a POD. It goes back like a bed!You can actually go to sleep in it. My table space was like a mini vanity. It was an awesome flight!

Lap in luxury after working hard out-of-town across the country…was a very pleasant and most unexpected surprise.

THE SERVICE from the flight attendants was amazing. Delta is my go to airline AND also my happy place. I love to fly! Delta  99% of the time takes care of me. Never disappoints and the CHEF has really stepped it up. The food and desserts are amazing.

Now, I’ve got another half  week ahead…back to TV today and on The Chat,gotta get caught up in my office and makeup studio and taking care of my husband who I have missed too. A business owners work is never done.

Can you say exhausted already?

Enjoy your week,Beautiful!

I have a new LOVER!


His name is BEN…

Ben Gay that is.

I recently moved the wrong way simply moving my husband’s and my car in and out of the driveway.That’s all.

I wish I could say I was exercising,but my favorite form of exercise is applying lipstick  I had no idea what this amazing product does. But now I do!!!

I LOVE this pain relieving cream. No, I don’t smell sexy but I feel so much better when I use it.

You know they say soft tissue injuries take some time to go away. I hope this side of my knee pain is not here to stay. Don’t worry I saw my doctor and I will live BUT it is going to take some time.

Perhaps this information will help you…IF you have injured yourself too.

I learned one thing I’ve got to stop multi-tasking so much and SLOW DOWN.

Take care of yourself dahlings! Get some Ben.

Madonna’s got a beauty secret!

DARCY photo DR. H product

I found this product in the press,then found it at a spa in Jacksonville,Florida named Soluna Yoga and Spa to me it is truly unique and a lovely skin care line!  It is one of Madonna’s favourite beauty secrets.

Madonna has gorgeous skin and  has managed to maintain glowing skin because she avoids going in the sun.

Madonna has a favorite moisturizer known as Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream. You know I shared it in a previous blog post and on TV …JLo loves this cream too and has been using it for years.This creams a super hero that contains extracts of rose petals,rose hip,avocado that rejuvenate the skin and help to maintain a hydrated dewy look!

It SMELLS and FEELS awesome too.

Madonna also nourishes her skin by using a face mist known as Dr Hauschka facial Toner which refreshes and rebalances the face during the entire day .It contains witch hazel and healing herbal extracts, such as anthyllis.Used after cleansing and before moisturizer it also helps minimize the appearance of larger pores,controlling an oily look as well.

Your skin will look radiant.

The Facial Toner is used after cleansing to support the skin’s natural processes of renewal, minimizing the appearance of pores, balancing moisture and oil content, and leaving skin looking and feeling healthy, toned and radiant.

Skin Condition: For normal, dry and sensitive skin. And as an after shave spray for men.

I had an awesome facial treatment with this product line and was intrigued with the esthetician DARCY’s signature FACIAL style.

If want a one of a kind unique facial at a pretty amazing place in town.If you’re lucky enough to live in Jacksonville Florida…

You too can be like Modonna and J Lo for a day for a month for an hour. You decide.If you don’t live in sunny Florida you can experience the magic of this doctor’s line by visiting their website.

Time to renew,dejunk and relax your skin and body after a long hot summer too. You too can look and feel like a celebrity and your skin look and feel radiant too!

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

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


POPS CAMPER TRUCK…my fave childhood treat.

I love to eat them especially on a hot summer day. It is steamy in the Florida sun and so humid.

Today I want to share with you just in time for National Creamsicle day on the 14th a fun creamsicle popsicle truck with the most  unique and delightful flavors. Examples:Watermelon Mint, Avocado and more. Made with ingredients from local farmers etc.Organic sugar and you can see the love in what they do.Love at first bite!

Made in Jacksonville,Florida  by a dynamic duo of ladies. The company is called Bold City Pops.

NEXT time you visit sunny Florida and you happen to see their camper/pop truck check out the dreamiest, creamiest pop your lips will ever taste and your tongue will ever lick!

Happy Friday!
