Stress Less Tips!

In a hurricane , tropical storm or just life now… we NEED comforting.

Here are some of my personal tips to help!

❤️ Take a warm comforting bath before the storm or you lose electricity. Or if the storm passes you or just any day chill out in a bath 🛀 even if you are a shower person. IT will make you feel better!

Add a few flowers 🌸 or ruse petals & it’s pure bliss!

I like to use Epsom salt and a few dashes of essential oil. Rose, lavender or lemon. I like to add shower gel to the tub for bubbles.

(Not crafters oil fragrance) The real thing!

❤️ This is NOT the time to go on a diet! Eat and drink things that comfort you. Bake some cookies from scratch. Make a pot of cozy hot chocolate or Chai tea.

Yum!
Rest up!

❤️ Try taking a nap or at least try and get a good nights sleep. It really helps with stress! It also is so good for your health!

❤️ Or give each other a massage. The scalp, shoulders, hands or feet. Even the family can get in on the fun.

Massage oil from your kitchen!

Practice a bit of meditation. Or start yoga. I have not been doing it for many years but I have added it to my life. It makes such a big difference.

❤️ Meditation 🧘‍♀️ calms the mind. If you don’t what to do. Just be still and quiet. Surround yourself with a salt lamp or a faux candle. Illuminate your space.

Soothe your spirits!

❤️ I’m not a doctor but my massage therapist and doctors over the years suggested I take one magnesium supplement at night. They say it relaxes the body and acts like a muscle relaxant. I practice that and it is quite effective. Sweet Dreams!

❤️ Spray your sheets or towels with lavender oil or peppermint oil. One calms and the peppermint lifts spirits.

❤️ Still feeling stress ? Chew gum or enjoy a hard candy. I love a candy brand called Jolly Ranchers!

❤️ Keep hydrated! Drinking Water 💦 is your body’s best friend. But a little Prosecco helps too. Or whatever floats your boat!

If you have a tip that you’d like to share with me. I’d love to hear from you.

I hope a few of these tips help and comfort you! Hurricane if not. We ALL need to take comfort.

On the go? Give your Lipsticks 💄 some …

Much needed attention. Your cosmetic bag is longing to be touched!

Stranded at the airport, waiting in the car 🚘 pool line or even at home. Use your time wisely and give your lipsticks some LOVE.

Grab those lipsticks & quickly disinfect them!

If you happen to get a Purell wipes, towelettes from a restaurant after your meal or have some rubbing alcohol disinfectant pads. get out your lipstick tubes and lipgloss wands and disinfect those tubes!

It’s kind of satisfying and fun to do!

1. Take the top off.

2. Roll up those tubes. Be gentle not all the way. Only up to where you’ve used the tube.

3. Swipe and wipe the lipstick itself all around.

4. Next wipe the tube packaging itself. You know lots of germs 🦠 are waiting for you there too.

5. Allow them to evaporate and dry and close the lids.

You’re all set, a quick disinfect and good to go! Safely! Protect those pretty lips!

* A great idea after you have a cold or a fever blister too!

Easy as 1,2,3 …

Pooped Out? Me too! Between my work,travel and play schedule some days I can look not so pretty tired.

A simple trick I like to do.

I apply a eyeliner in a vibrant hue like a purple, green or blue from the center of the eyelid to the outer ends of the lash line.

A little goes a long way at opening up those eyes!

Skip eyeliner on the bottom of the eye. You might want to just do a thin line near the lash line.

Then I blend a bright liner pencil with an upward stroke towards the brow but staying at the lash line on the eyelid.

I apply a dash of shimmer color on the inner corner of my eyes. I like a sheer champagne,a white pearl, a gold or a silver.

Now you’re ready for a dash of colored mascara.

This will definitely …

Wake up those sleepy looking tired eyes!

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!

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!

Hello,Sunshine!

TIME to get outdoors without our face masks where possible and enjoy some sun.

This month is Skin Cancer Awareness Month so just don’t forget to apply a sunscreen when you’re ready to go out and start your day.

In Florida where I live the sun is already calling Floridians and tourists out the door. 🏖 Beaches, parks, the woods,playgrounds they can’t resist the 🌞 and shed some clothes.

Unfortunately what I also see are girls, guys and children with sunburned lobster hued skin. Ouch! It is pretty bad and painful to see.

Just remember wearing an SPF will not prevent you from getting some color you just will be more protected and not burn. As a skin cancer survivor I know what I’m talking about. I’ve been there!

So I hope you’ll enjoy spending more time outdoors to explore. But just protect that wonderful skin you’re in!

Counting down to… Las Vegas again!

Last year the shows got cancelled.

PRO only shows…
Stylists,makeup artists,nail techs,estheticians and beauty business owners from all over the world will flock to the ever popular International Beauty Show and the International Esthetics Cosmetics & Spa Conference.

But now … Counting down with hope to a fabulous and fun time. June is coming soon.

I’ll be BEAUTY reporting from there and sharing with you ALL THAT I SEE. It’s going to be a bumpy exciting out of the park ride! Hair beauty shows are not like peaceful spa shows. They have a mood and vibe all of their own and have seen some unique hair and makeup Pro’s. Some of them wear just as much makeup as you and I do and their men! If I bump into any you need to know about.

I’ll Instagram and blog out photo’s and comments to you. So follow me there too!

Day 9 of MY Beauty Secrets

💋💋💋💋

I never use to think sunglasses were needed. I mean they are attractive. But I thought you only wore them at the beach. But living up North we only had a couple of months out of the year to really enjoy time in the sun! So, I really saw no need for them since I wasn’t going to the beach much.

After visiting Hollywood for work and play I discovered Celebrities wore them a lot. Not just to look chic or cool 😎 but to hide behind.

As time went on… I saw the light! The sunlight that is.

Protect Those Pretty Eyes!

Sunglasses 🕶 are my Eyes BAE. They protect my eyes and vision in so many ways. They protect the skin around my eyes as well.

They also make a fashion statement and are a fun addition to my wardrobe.

So what took me so long? If it’s going to help me look a bit younger around the eyes and keep my vision as best as it can be. I choose sunglasses as my beauty secret for my skin and eyes!

Day 8 of MY Beauty Secrets

I’m crazy for all things … Coconut!

Once a week I devote to a bath 🛁 with coconut oil. I take off my clothes. Slather on warm melted coconut oil on my body. Tonight was that night. I feel so amazing. Refreshed.

I apply coconut oil like hand and body lotion. You must be careful not to slip or fall. But so worth it! Remember a little goes a long way.

Next, I dip my toes and body into a warm water 💦 drawn bath. I relax around 10 minutes. I sip coconut water in a plastic goblet and enjoy the luxurious silky coconut oil bath.

Then I rinse slightly and step out of the tub.

I wrap my body in my luxe white fluffy robe with a giant set of lips 💋 on it.

I apply white socks on the 🥥 coconut oil feet. And then I go to sleep.

This is a super soft body treat. You’ll wake up with baby soft skin.

Try it! You’ll love ❤️ it.

Day 4 of My Beauty Secrets

“Tired of your bold lipstick or lip gloss running down and around your lips?”

Me too!

Invisible Lip Liner! 👄

As a professional makeup artist and educator in the spa and salon industry I always get asked this question.

I used to recommend a pigmented lip liner like a cherry red, sangria or a nude liner.

Nowadays not every girl wants to use a lip liner. But don’t want the feathering or bleeding (I hate to say that word) So my beauty secret is using an invisible lip liner.

It magically locks color in place. You can’t even see it when you apply it. It looks like the color of white candle wax in the pencil.

I don’t how it does it. But I use it on myself, my clients, newscasters, bridal parties and on photo shoots.

If you have this problem! Check it out. Your ❤️ the beautiful look and effect!

Invisible Lip Liner is a must! 👄
