The latest trend that snuk up on me is one a client told me about! I just had a nail party with my fingers and toes in my hotel room with a thing called Nail Strips. The Brand name is Color Street nails. What fun!
Here are the deets:
Dry Nail Polish Strips 💅 Who Knew?
💯Real nail Polish
No dry time, no smudges or streaks!
They come in glitter,solid hues and fun nail art designs too. Also available for pedicures.
They are like applying a sticker.
Lasts up to 10 days!
Removes easy with nail polish remover. Preferably with moisturizers.
My absolute favorite is “Tokyo Lights” which is like a rose gold on steroids. So sparkling and gorgeous! I also am in love with Charmed and Dangerous which is a lip 💋 theme and pink polish nail strip. So ME!
It took a 5 minute learning curve for me.😜 But I did it and it was so fast and pure fun!!!
I hope one day you’ll explore and get all dolled up with them!

Another friend test drove them and shared with me it does not come off easily. She just birthed twins a few months and has a toddler too.She said it lasted with diaper changing,washing hands,cooking cleaning,bathing …SHE was amazed at the superior performance and the gorgeous hues they come in.
Having traveled to Asia a few months ago I so enjoyed awesome beauty, skincare,fireworks,customs,food,drink and fun. Counting down to when I go back for more adventures. I hope you enjoy today’s show. If you have ANY beauty and skin care questions simply ask me!
I am an all American girl that happens to be Eurasian and my husband says I am a Combination Platter off the Chinese Take Out Menu. People ALWAYS ask me what is my nationality. Even more when I moved from up North to sunny Florida. When I moved here for my husband I was so in love ❤️ I forgave Florida for the HOT 🥵 temperatures and the horrific humidity. But as time went by I came to the conclusion I hate the heat and my makeup melting. I also noticed brides and bridal parties hated it too. So, I pulled out my little box of love for my complexion and made them look amazing. This box is my makeup savior and go to. I have used it on my face since I was a teen and now on my clients for TV work, red carpet beauty moments, photo shoots and for my brides and bridal parties. I use it on men too!
It is an Ancient Chinese Beauty secret handed down from generation to generation.
What is it?
A white looking brownie (yes like the Brownie we eat). It is a hard cake that becomes loose when stroked and applied with a Kabuki powder brush.
It is feather light powder that makes your makeup last longer.
Makes your colors remain true especially when you have issues with your makeup turning colors and helps them remain true.
Great for oily skin and complexions with a bit of acne
Tones down shine!
Sets your makeup!
But wait there’s MORE!
When I make up my face or a client’s face and I accidentally put a bit more blush on or eye shadow too overpowering or doesn’t look right….I simply take a brush,dip into my rice powder and clean up,soften and blend it out.
Oh and not only does it look great on brides and photographs nicely. It also is great for women of a certain age who get steamy and hot flash! Calms the heat and the powder cools the skin with a soft matte finish.
If YOU or your friends makeup is missing that little something or you crave all things Asian Beauty and or something new this is for YOU!
I don’t think I could live without IT alongside a gorgeous 💄 Lipstick of course!
Open your mind and embrace new ideas and mindful rituals. Create a space in your home (your own little sanctuary) and keep a little something on your work desk that will assist with mindful wellness.
You can even take a little something like a crystal with you in your travels ✈️ too!
Healing Harmonies…I love the music 🎶 from David Young. My fave is “Bliss” and George Skaroulis CD 💿 named Sanctuary. Take time to listen to calming music and just breathe. Use music to relax or to mediate or do yoga with.
Crystals are mined from the earth and they can offer some intentional light or meaning in our life too.
Each stone does a different thing and has meaning and a mood. Here are some you need to know about.
Pink Rose quartz is a LOVE 💕 stone.
Agate is a stone for good health.
Green Jade is for luck and prosperity.
Clear crystals are for clarity of the mind.
Amethyst’s are the Happiness stone.
Crystals can be very empowering.
Add some incense, burning sage and Palo Santo which is also known as a “Holy Stick” to your life.
Palo Santo has a sweet scent of pine, lemon and mint. You may also use sage as well. It is also used for a deep meditative state. You light it and let it burn. You may use it and move with it from room to room. When done. Blow it out. Wet the ember tip a bit and place in a 🔥 fire proof dish. Be cautious when using sage or Palo Santo and incense.
Palo Santo is harvested from natural fallen trees.
Smudging is the ritual of cleansing a physical space, an object or a person.
Great for the spiritual, detoxifying properties, cleansing and clearing the air of a physical space of negative energy.
Will not upset pets or people with allergies. Also they say it is great to kill bacteria after a illness or the flu.
Wellness is not just about what you eat. It is also about what you feed your mind. Check out some new things online and there are plenty of books 📚 you can explore on these modalities too.
Start fresh in this new year and take time to smell the incense and just be.
Last weekend was Shop Small Saturday all across the country started by American Express. I participated in it proudly again this year. And here are a few takeaways of what girls bought for their besties or themselves.
Stocking Stuffersor token gifts…
Remember it is the thought that counts not the price OR how much you buy for that person! And you know what the real reason for the season is!
Makeup Brushes by the set are a coveted gift a girl struggles to get for herself. So many to choose from and it can be overwhelming. Buying ala carte is not the best thing to do unless that is your budget. It is cheaper and chicer to buy a set. And you don’t have tospend a fortune for them. Remember the $ dollar $ quality is not the same as a boutique.
Wine,rose,champagne wine holders chic and so versatile. Use them for booze, décor and or to rest your bling and baubles on. They say wine is most gals best friend over any other libation. Add a few gourmet or edible delights like below and you have a gift that won’t be forgotten!
Lipsticks are always in style and putting together a set of a variety of them for your mom or bestie can be so much fun! Add a gloss or balm and they love you forever.
*Add a lip brush and you’re all set. Yes, they are still in.
Bath and Body Treats are so lovely! And SO NEEDED. When you shop you can get a lot of little pieces. Aromatic and hydrating are best for the skin. And aromatherapy is so relaxing and mood lifting and calming.
Candles are always a good idea!
Palo Santo,Sage and herb plants are both unique and practical too.
Fragrance is a very personal thing. So, I usually only give it in bath and body lotions not necessarily by the bottle. Unless you know the exact fragrance they love.
I just spent an amazing time in Arizona! One of my stays was at the JW Marriott Star ⭐️ Pass Resort & Spa. It is an amazzzing place! And the spa was beautiful too.
It was so refreshing to be back to Arizona again! The history and the food with a bit of heat 🔥 some things more spicy 🌶 than others. It is an awesome place to visit.
The highlights from my trip were visiting the city of De Tubac where arts and history and foodies are alive and kicking. I happened to be there when they had a festival going on. So many creatives in one place!
My fav’ place to eat was at Elvira’s. So delicious and the wait staff was awesome. The restaurant was Eye 👁 candy in itself. All the color from the moment you arrive. The art 🖼 and even using the powder room was a religious experience.
Connected to this place is a fabulous decor & gift shop! From angels, to hearts to art to glassware. I found a hand blown heart ❤️ piece I had to have. I’m going to place it in a gold ribbon and hang it from one of my chandeliers. I used to buy mugs, pot holders and tea towels when visiting places. Now when I travel I got smarter! I buy things that make me 😊 happy and that decor adorns my home or office. A daily reminder of my wonderful trips!
Also in this town there was a fabulous kitchen store Tumacookery I could have shopped there ALL day. If you’re a foodie or chef. What a fabulous and fun place!
Everywhere you travel 🌵 cactus of all kinds follow you. And they have skin care and cocktails 🍹 and other edible cacti treats too! The weather was amazing! 🌞
The people were charming and the sunsets were breathtaking! As I always say…explore beyond your door. Life is even more wonderful if you just get out the door and travel.
FALL is definitely here maybe not so much in Florida 🌴🌞 where I now live but it is here.
As we choose a new look in makeup for fall… I think sometimes less is better! I love to do a soft and pretty makeup look. And I love to make up my clients in a soft kiss ofcolor way. Yes, a deeper lipstick is always a good idea.
But you don’t have to go over the top with your makeup! Now, if you love a lot of it and like it on your face all at one time … I get you.
I am a beauty lover too!!!
But if you are intimidated with makeup and applying it…Don’t be. Just apply a lipstick 💄 and eye 👁 liner.
I have met so many women in my career who say they are so frightened and tell me they suffer with makeup. You don’t have to suffer with it EVER!
It’s OK to apply your makeup softly and not wear it all! Really!
