Whipping up some beauty!

DIY Recipe for your hair:

Have fun in the kitchen and whip up some face and body care. I featured these recipes on TV 📺 yesterday on River City Live on http://www.News4Jax.com

Check out the video clip.

FYI

If you are allergic to any other the ingredients below. Please skip that ingredient. If you have very sensitive skin do a patch test on your inner wrist.

I have super sensitive skin. I do not have any problems with any of these delightful DIY treats. 😍

Coconut 🥥 milk by the can is so softening and gives you a healthier sheen. Use it before you shampoo and then pour a cup on your ends and rub a comb through your hair. Leave on at least 15 minutes.

Women from exotic countries love this hair trick!

Canned Coconut milk or coconut oil both work!

Hi 🍯 Honey! Face Mask Recipe

Local honey makes a skin softening and soothing face mask for women or men. Yes, it’s a bit messy and you might want to eat it and lick 😋 the leftovers. but it is a quick wonderful mask. Apply on clean face and leave on at least 10 minutes. I also like to do this mask on my neck.

A little honey goes a long way!

Rice 🍚 Water Face Mask for uneven skin tone

Raw White rice for your skin? Yes, please!
Oats for your bath? Why not?

Milk & Oat Bath Body Recipe

Fill a bathtub with warm water. Place a sachet (muslin or organza bag both work)

Filled with a cup or two of raw oats and some powdered milk.

* You can substitute the powdered milk for a small bottle of water.

Soak your cares away, dry skin and itchy skin away! Soak in the bath until the water 💦 cools. Your skin will feel amazing.

Nail & Cuticle Hand Bath

All you need is some olive 🫒 oil, avocado 🥑 oil or other favorite oil. I like to soak my hands in this oil bath. Do this for at least 10 minutes.

* Rub the extra oil on your toe nails and feet.

Instant mani & pedi fix !

End these spa like treats from your kitchen with a martini 🍸 or a glass of bubbly Prosecco or champagne 🍾

My husband likes to join in on the pampering self care fun too!

My adventures to the Wild West! 🐎

Part 2

Meals were so delicious I fell in love with a fabulous brunch and had to order what they call “Pig Candy” So unique and delicious! See photo:

A signature snack or gift treat!

After a day of fun in Wyoming I came back to the room to this! Old fashioned “Turn Down service” in my hotel room in Hotel Jackson. Sweet bonus? Two boxes of decadent chocolate 🍫 duo and bottled water at each of our bedside stands. It truly is about the little things! Isn’t it?

Shopping 🛍 in Wyoming is lots of fun!

I love ❤️ love ❤️ love all things beauty and CANDY. That is why I named my beauty and lifestyle blog Beauty Candy.

So the two old time candy stores were a thrill to discover and browse in! And yummy too. Look what I found? PEZ. Not just any Pez candy for my personal Pez machine at home but in chocolate 🍫 flavor!? Yes, please!

One candy store was called Yippy I-O and another candy shop is Mursell’s a family owned store. So many oldies but goodies to choose from and enjoy! 🍭

Yum! 👄

Walking around the city streets and in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons… you never know what you’ll find! 🦬

It truly is like a 🎥 movie set of an old western!

Look what I found?

No cowboy in sight just cowboy boots!

If you love ❤️ salads you’d love Cafe Genevieve! These delicious place is inside a log cabin. Dining available inside and on the patio outside. Dog 🐶 friendly.

Best salad ever! Really!
Dolce and Gabbana kitchenware anyone?

Shopping the Belle Cose kitchen store was the most amazing place I’ve ever been in. So gorgeous. So many gadgets, gourmet ware and a foodies/chefs play land to get lost in!

Yum!

Everything and anything huckleberry is the coveted yummy and fragrant product. From jam to bath abs body products to this from Jackson Drugs and old time drug store with counter. We loved our huckleberry milk shake with whipped cream and a 🍒 on top of course!

I found a clean beauty 💄 makeup & skincare shop!

The wallpaper on the shop walls matched their biz card with all kinds of beautiful faces! See the details?

Couldn’t leave Jackson Hole without a cold beer 🍻 with my husband at this iconic bar. The bar seats are horse 🐎 saddles!

Well that’s a wrap on my trip. It was so awesome and so was the views we saw. If you haven’t been to Wyoming or Montana maybe now is the time!

I highly recommend you add it to your 🇺🇸 US travel bucket list. You, your sweetie or family would really love it.

My only regret. I wish I made it on a wagon ride and enjoyed a meal fireside. Winter is coming so things were starting to close to prepare for the long cold winter.

PS

Bison 🦬 own the road. Be careful!

Wake up and smell the …Eucalyptus!

There’s a chill in the air as the seasons change and cold and flu season is on it’s way. It is also a time we start to cozy up inside our homes. I love FALL best of all.

I like to spice things up when the seasons change and make different types of baths and potions. So the other day I bought some fresh eucalyptus leaves to join my eucalyptus oil. There are so many health benefits from eucalyptus oil. From relieving respiratory issues,wounds,mental exhaustion and even the doctors say dental care. But you have to be careful with it as it can be toxic.

Here are a few ways I love to use it:

Kiss Muscle Pain Away Soak

What you will need for this soothing bath soak is:

1/2 cup of baking soda

1 cup of Epsom salts

3 drops of almond oil or jojoba

10 drops of eucalyptus oil

Fill a bathtub or a foot bath with warm water less of the above ingredients if it just a foot bath you are doing.

Get in the bath and soak your cares and toxin away with this aromatic bath treat.

Enjoy this beauty bath weekly,monthly or when you are in the mood for it.

love the beauty of a bath. Once you get into the rhythm of doing them and not just showering you will give in and love them too.

Happy World 🌎 Chocolate Day! 🍫

I love chocolate! How about you?

So many ways to enjoy it too!

A sexy perfume, a chocolate 🍫 bar,a chocolate cupcake or cake, a chocolate cocktail, a chocolate scented body lotion, a chocolate scented candle and more!

What’s your favorite way to enjoy chocolate?

My Weekend Body Detox

Now thru Monday try and fit in some time for a little chillaxing and an easy body detox. Since coming from Las Vegas where I feasted on Breakfast in bed, to Dim Sum 🥟 (which is Chinese Brunch) and other delightful Vegas meals. I need a body breather.

Here’s what I’m doing this weekend. YOU can too!

1. Drink lots of liquids.

Fluids flush out your system and any digestive bloating you may feel. Never mind happy hour drinking. So stay hydrated. I love love love 💦 water.

2. Enjoy Fruit.

The ultimate snack! The more the better. Cantaloupe 🍈 and strawberries 🍓 are my fave. Fruit helps with excess sodium, puffiness and bloating. All kinds of fruit 🍌 will do.

Yum!

3. Give yourself a face mask. Add some cucumber 🥒 sliced thin on your eye area and rest while the mask dries. This de-puffs too.

A clay mask works wonders. It cleans, tightens and makes your pores happy! It really helps to draw our impurities and puffiness!

Bye Bye puffiness & bloat!
Facial Detox!
My fave is a Clay Mint Mask!

Have a fabulous relaxing 😎 and fun 4th of July weekend! 🇺🇸

Eating well & self-care is the best care you can give yourself!

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!

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!

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!

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!
