Jet setting for Beauty & Food

I am ready to share my recent finds in WONDERFUL Chicago. Guest speaking at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show is always an honor and my pleasure. But playing in a city I travel to is always a JOY. I love to discover new hot spots and to visit my fave places I continue to go back to.STAN'S

Welcome to Donut Heaven! Stan’s Donuts is an awesome donut place I fell in love with. While I love Do-Rite donuts and will never stop. Stan’s Donuts and staff  was the best! For almost 50 years Stan has crafted some of the world’s best donuts and started in Los Angeles. So many choices so little time!!! And they are ginormous!Don’t let the name fool you they have bagels and so many other yummies too.Including a Dirty Chai Tea! I love the name. Don’t you?

Next I had to stop at Ming Hin in Chinatown for DIM SUM …I ordered an array of fabulous delights from dumplings, to shrimp to Chow Fun. I did not order the tough bird staring at me on the menu. Although it was tempting to TRY.

I PIGEON

I always go back to Merz Apothecary for old time pharmacy and beauty finds and for a drink at the Palmer House.So tres chic.

I adore shopping the Magnificent Mile with all the amazing stores but  I love to go downtown on State Street that great street with mom and pop shops and eateries. I love a store called Agaci for fashionable finds.Nordstrom Racks there too.

The beauty show was filled with energy and mystical crystals. I got a Chakra reading by the master Linda Bertaut. She said I am SUPER-CHARGED with lots of energy!!! But warned me to watch out for burn out.I guess it is all about moderation isn’t it? Visit: http://www.chakralicious.com for more info.

Korean beauty is still trending and there is beauty from the sea with Repechage skin care.

I discovered some more fun beauty things. Stay tuned for my posts.

Oh and its almost time for MY Spring Beauty Giveaway! Come back and see how you might win and score.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I LOVE to Create all things Beauty!

As some of you know I love and am so attracted to all things Asian beauty namely China and Japan. And I continue to embrace all the K-Beauty  products that have come to the US. It is so much fun exploring the NEW and the tried & true! Yet I think I have only begun to tap the surface of this other world of beauty finds.I want to learn and test drive even more!

Through the years I created kits filled with beauty products from China but my other love is creating beauty products inspired by the Orient.It is so satisfying to my beauty spirit to create. From choosing the formulas,what they can do and I get to name the products too! Our clients love them too.

Last year I introduced a beauty box filled with products called Lucky Cookie…it is filled with beauty I curated from China,Korea,Japan and more.My signature chopsticks and fortune cookie included.You’re a Lucky Cookie if you own this box is how I look at it!!!

Recently I curated a kit of products that I named the Bento Box of Beauty. It is an actual Bento FOOD tray FILLED with beauty and bath products. Happy to say …We sold out over Valentine’s day!

The best part you get to enjoy it all and not throw the packaging out.

If you are a foodie, a beauty junkie and or appreciate the flawless beauty of a China doll complexion…you will fall in love with this Bento Box!

Tell me what you think of this fun box of K and other Asian beauty?  I love eating from these unique compartments but I think I like it even more when it is filled with ALL things beauty and fun! Bento Box of Beauty 1 -2017.JPG

If you are intrigued by American beauty and Asian beauty please follow me! Not only am I have created my version of an Asian Beauty Box. I have been retailing and celebrating all things Asian beauty and inspired by the orient for years!

Only now have they come to be all the rage in the US.

My first collection was all Chinese beauty products filled in a Take-Out Box and we can’t keep it on our pretty shelves. Our latest venture this year is filled with Korean face masks,hand and body lotion and more!

These past few months have been spent testing,spraying,rubbing,sniffing and ENJOYING all things Korea and more.Today I will be testing some face masks and body products.

My fascination with these beauty products stems from my being an all American girl whose parents happen to be Polish and Chinese. I know what a combination platter am I!  The strange part was when I was growing up I wanted to buy Revlon and Avon.I did not appreciate the history and culture of my background.

I am picky what goes into our Lucky Cookie beauty box!

So stay tuned. I will be sharing some awesome beauty secrets and rituals…this month!

We I will also doing a beauty giveaway to one lucky follower of my beauty and lifestyle blog!!! Getting excited?
