What’s TRENDING and HOT NOW!

At the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show in Las Vegas I heard as I was going down the hall to teach my class these loud happy chants. “ANAL bleach. Loud and proud …more shouts of the words Anal Bleach and those words along with music went on and on.” I must admit it got my attention.

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

I snapped a pic with my iphone of one of the class educators and that is what you see in the pic. While I could not attend the class I had to share with you what I found. The name of the company: Wax Hair Removal Bar. And they a plant 🌱 based wax removal system.

Needing to learn more … I had to explore. This is what I found on their website.

Anal bleaching is one of the most popular skin care requests today.

NOT TO BE DONE at home without the TLC care and attention of a spa /waxing PROFESSIONAL.

The Wax Hair Removal Bar intimate area skin lightening products are all safe and FDA & Health Canada approved. Remember that harsh chemicals such as Hydroquinone or Kojic Acid that can burn, irritate and even hypo-lightening the skin which is not reversable or repairable.

It is actually very common for our “sensitive areas” such as the bikini line, vaginal, underarms and anal area to discolor in both men and women.

Most people find it hard to discuss this topic and that why WAX Hair Removal Bar was born! We have zero issue talking about this topic, in fact its as natural as talking about the weather. 😜 (I inserted this emoji)

The most common reasons for skin discoloration tend to be hormonal that may arise after pregnancy, aging, ethnicity or weight gain. Who knew???😳

Many people think that anal bleaching or skin lighting is only for the adult industry – we are here to crush that rumor. Most of our clients are average everyday blue collar workers both male and female that are looking to enhance the appearance of their bodies and even our discolored skin tone anywhere from inner thighs to the ever so sensitive scrotum . We offer this treatment which can be done in the comfort of your own home or in our establishment without the use of harsh chemicals.

With locations in both Vancouver, Canada and Las Vegas, Nevada, we have had the pleasure of serving a broad clientele ranging from show business performers to adult entertainers to celebrities and the everyday person that walks through our door just looking to undergo a little maintenance.

Oh so inspired by the makeup.Especially her eyes and looks for her music video!

Keep scrolling on.

What about you?

The country is extremely divided right now over pretty much everything. But we all came together late last week (almost 15 million people!) to collectively gasp at Normani’s dance moves and killer outfits in her new music video. There is no doubt she did that. And now thanks to Normani’s makeup artist, we’re getting an…

Don’t want to age fast?

No matter what your age… The two quickest ways to age your skin are not washing your face before you go to sleep and going to bed with your makeup on! Can you guess what the other is?  We’ll get back to that shortly.

Not washing your face day & night and removing ALL your makeup is so important for happy healthy looking skin. Your face needs to be clean BEFORE you go to sleep every single night. So, get to it if you want to have amazing skin.

Another reason the skin ages faster is by not wearing sunscreen daily. Even when it isn’t sunny 🌞 outside. I know what you’re thinking … I don’t need it much really. Or just need to use it in the summer a little. I was a late sunscreen bloomer! Living up north we only had two real months to enjoy in the sun! But eventually I grew a bit older and wiser. I realized I needed to be sun smart and added sunscreen to my daily beauty regime.

I’m not trying to lecture you I’m simply trying to help you.

So, if you want to look your best longer… wash your face nightly and add sunscreen in your life! 24/7 and 365 days a year.

You’ll thank me one day.

Oh happy day…the time has come for my fave day of the YEAR!

National 💄 Lipstick Day.

I am sharing  all things LIPSTICK and lips on WJXT 4’S The Morning Show.

One of the most popular questions I get is “How do I get my lipstick to last?”

So, here you go!

You’ve got to take care of your lips on a regular basis. Not just when they are dry,peeling and flaky. So, this is a ritual I professionally recommend.

1st Gently exfoliate and brush your lips and the area around your lips with a lip polish. I am obsessed with Whoopie by FarmHouse Fresh. Kiss those dry and dead skin cells 👋 Bye Bye!

2nd Apply a lip mask (Yes, it’s a thing!)

3rd Prime with a lip base Perfect day Lip Base. This locks the color in place and makes the color last a bit longer. Especially red 💋 high pigmented lipsticks or glossy lip shades that may run.

4th My current go to is an invisible lip liner totally clear but keeps your lipstick in place and gives your lips shape and definition.

5th Apply a gorgeous lipstick! So many choices and formulas…it is truly not your mother’s or grandma’s lipstick anymore!

Now, if you want to make your lipstick shade last even longer without using the LIPSTICK Base. I ALSO cannot live without and use my lipstain called China Doll. It acts like a slip or beloved Spanx underneath your dress to make everything look marvelous. So when you apply a lipstick 💄 (any brand) over it …this stain makes them last a bit longer. Or you can simply use this lipstick solo and enjoy the healthy rosy glow hue!

So how are you celebrating today? And what color lipstick 👄 are you wearing today?

DID YOU KNOW?

During the Roman Empire both men and women would wear lipstick as a sign of wealth $$$ It remained popular for men  to wear lipstick until the French Revolution.

Hello,Handsome!

BEARD BAR IMG_5647.JPGI know you want to look and feel good too!

Great looking healthy skin takes a little ME time and effort DAILY!

In the summer our skin tends to break out or get dehydrated from the sun and outdoor activities even more. Here are the latest and greatest in grooming this summer and beyond!

  • Skin care exfoliation is very important for the guys too. Fruit Peel by celebrity esthetician Elina of Elina Organics will gently exfoliate your skin  while you sleep.
  • Fresh Face Beard Bar is a new way to wash your beard and soften it up and clean the complexion underneath. You don’t want your beard or mustache to be dry and unkempt looking. It’ not enough just to wash your face. 🧼 Don’t use deodorant bars on that handsome face!
  • Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.
  • Floss- Caring for your 🦷 and gums = A healthier heart. Cocofloss is the way to go made with Coconut oil.
  • A relaxing 🛀 bath with bath salts or your fave Aura Acacia essential oil, detoxifying sheet mask and a hand,feet and body lotion to follow work wonders on the body and skin after a long work day or week.
  • Got leftover beer? 🍺 Rinse your hair with it after you shampoo. The malt and hops in beer contain cleansing properties!
  • D.I.Y. Recipe #2  Add a dash of apple 🍎 cider vinegar to the hair with a bit of beer and 1 oz. of water 💦 and you’ll have a hair rinse that removes build up of all those products you’ve been using. Shinier clean hair!

Cool products and tools for cool guys!

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! You are all you got.

Las Vegas IS always fabulous!

Been so busy since I came back from Las Vegas I finally had a moment to tell you about my beauty filled and foodie trip. I got to go with my sweetie so that’s always good. It wasn’t as hot this year as it usally is in the 100 degree and more mark. I never get tired of Las Vegas and go a few times a year.

I guest spoke at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference.

My class went well and I love the eager to learn audience of makeup artists,estheticans,plastic surgeons and Boss Babes.IMG_5302

I enjoyed and sat in on some other classes TO LEARN too but my fave part of any beauty conference is always  discovering what is on the show floor! Shopped til I dropped. I discovered a few new brands and tools I will share with you in the next few blog posts too.

Healthier Looking SKIN is still in! And so are all kinds of beauty devices and facial tools for anti-aging but they are sold to beauty professionals in the spa or plastic surgeons and dermatologists offices. Where they need to be. I think sometimes these at home machines and pro devices are best used by the PROFESSIONAL. Putting the wrong device in the consumers hands can harm you especially if you don’t know what you are doing.

💄 Makeup is sparkling with all things glam and glitter.

I enjoyed my usual foodie spots for food away from the strip where the locals like to go. And at the top of that food list is the infamous In & Out Burger and animal fries too!

I stayed on an extra day to RELAX  and to join Las Vegas Now’s  host Courtney Perna again. So happy to join her again as she’s always fun to work with and quite a show host… loaded with personality! This time my segment was  Asian Beauty Secrets Revealed. Having just been to Korea and China I had a few unique things to share with their TV viewers. The best part of the segment was rolling an Asian Skin Smoothing and Relaxing face roller with her for fun on Boomerang.IMG_5450

This cool little tool is still on a roll in China and now the USA. Using it is so cool and refreshing and the beauty benefits surely beats a face lift… any day!

Asian Royalty used it for centuries now it has made it to main stream from China. Great for those of you who love all things anti-aging. Revs up circulation and they do so much.

Have you ever seen unusual fruit at an Asian market and wondered what they are?

Dragon fruit and Durian are delightful to eat or add in a smoothie for younger looking skin and overall good health. Don’t be afraid to explore what’s not familiar to you and taste what you never tried before.

Asian women I interviewed on the streets of Hong Kong also shared with me that infamous Pearl Powder. Sold by the box in little vials you almost think you are buying something white powdery and illegal. But it is not. It is a powder when mixed with water makes an amazing skin brightening and tightening face mask. The women use this beauty find that is handed down from generations.

Wishing  I were back in the Orient I had a craving for Dim Sum (Chinese Brunch) that is in some places served all day. I adore the owner,staff and food at Orchids Garden. So, authentic and delightful! About 8 MINUTES from the Las Vegas strip. They serve it on hot oven carts. So delicious and you won’t break the bank.DIM SUM IMG_5278

Shopping in Las Vegas is always fun. You can shop on the strip or go out and drive half an hour to an outlet mall called in Prim. They have a Tommy Bahama Outlet my husband so loves. I enjoy the H & M outlet and other discount shops.

By the airport there is also fabulous shopping experience (not just on the strip) and since I am addicted to all things containers and tidying up… The Container Store is also there! I don’t have one in my city so I try and shop one when I travel. After you’re done stop at the center and have a cocktail or go to grab a bite at The Lazy Dog restaurant. The first time I ever had sweet potato tater tots. Everything made from scratch and from the farm! Food …so fresh.

And by the way, if you’re into cannabis. They have licensed recreational dispensaries there now. It is legal.

Next time you travel ✈️ to Las Vegas check out some of these spots. You don’t need a ton of money or gamble to enjoy Las Vegas. I can’t wait to go back in a few months.

I’ve always had a beautiful experience!

I so love neon and happy to share this post from StyleCaster on neon eyeliners! Do you love color like I do too?

Actually, I won’t tip-toe around this: “less is more” can apply to every single part of my day-to-day; from the makeup (or lack thereof) on my face to the Vans on my feet, despite having 50 pairs of other…

Tea is something they cherish drinking. They enjoy  it on a daily basis even for  quiet time in the afternoon. It is filled with anti-oxidants and so great for the body and skin.

Sandalwood Incense fills the street air and in homes. It is burned to ward off evil spirits,bring good luck and calms the spirit and soul.

Women and Girls clamor for whimsical beauty products have to offer.Face masks are very very popular there. MEN love them too. Beauty tools and gadgets too. As well as face creams made with illuminating pearls.They covet clear no brown spot skin. They even use an umbrella even when uit is not raining to protect the skin.

Pearl powder and pearl creams are the most popular ancient Chinese beauty secret. They give the face a brighter evened out look and temporarily tightens the skin.The powder is sold by the box and these mini beauty vials are rituals handed down from generations.

I have so much to share with you from my trip. I LOVE discovering what all cultures have to offer us. Please come back for more. Right now I am still trying to fight jet lag after this trip and LONG flights. Since my last trip to Scandanavia, I had forgotten how tough (but worth it) International flights can be.
