I’m really trying to enjoy being more green, clean and eco friendly…with my food and lifestyle.

And in my skincare too!

Skin is so in…Especially when it is healthy looking. If your skin is not looking the way you would like it to… Perhaps its time to try something fresh and new! Looking good takes a little effort girls and so worth it. If you do not have a skin care regime now is the time to start. Also if you have been wearing sweat pants and not taking care of your skin think about taking time for YOU and get your skin in shape too.

They say “You are what you eat” and it is so true. Eating right … with a little bit of a naughty is really best. All in balance and moderation darlings! I’ve been on a kick of making SMOOTHIE BOWLS and making them is so much fun too. Your whole family will enjoy.

I love to get glowing, use beauty from my kitchen, a local farmer’s market, and make a few D.I.Y. beauty recipes and beauty potions on my own.

I will share some of the them on my new podcast to come too! But here are a few for you to enjoy this Memorial day too.

Take care of your skin and your skin will always take care of you!

Recipe for pretty skin starts from within. Not only are these good to eat they are good to use as skincare. Especially when many of us are on stay at home orders.

Yogurt (plain Greek yogurt) makes a GREAT cheap and chic face mask. Apply to a clan face and leave on at least 15 minutes. Genty exfoliates dead skin cells too.

Avocados are a great for hydrating your face and neck. Add honey to a mashed avocado and leave on at least 15 minutes. Your skin will LOVE it.

Bananas work wonders on dry elbows and knees. If your bananas are beyond ripe and you don’t feel like making banana bread…give your skin a moisturizing natural treat.

In addition, when the weather is hot and you want to chill down and make your skin feel amazing. Take a plain ice cube and rub gently on your skin. Not your eye area but try on the face. It will tighten your pores and make your makeup glide on beautifully. I also like to use an ice cube on my chest and neck. So cool and refreshing.

Have a BEAUTY filled deligthful day!

Recipe for Awesome Bites!

One of my friends Danette known as the Dessert Diva shared this yummy recipe with me! She is on the Chat TV talk show like me.www.firstcoastnews.com.

You know how I love to cook and makeup!

Here is her recipe for a hard to believe good for you and FIBER rich treat. Danette on The Chat photo

Energy and fiber your body needs!

1 1/4 cups raw almonds
1 /14 cups dates (pitted)
1 Tbsp  honey ( maybe a bit more)
Pinch of salt

Grind almonds and dates in food processor until fine ( a little coarse is ok, too) add honey and salt. Process until well combined. ..it should be sticky enough to form a ball. Press down in a 8×8 pan lined with foil. Make sure to press down hard, so it really holds together. Let sit approx 1 hour. Pull foil out of pan, and cut into squares.

If it needs more honey to stick together, that is fine. You could use more dates in beginning if you like.

So easy and it tasted SO DELICIOUS!

I can’t wait to go shop for the ingredients and whip up these squares for myself when I travel and serve to my clients too. Enjoy!

Day 15 to more beautiful skin!

peaches
There are so many lotions and beauty potions out there. But there is NOTHING like doing an at home treatment from the kitchen. Not only are you what you eat. YOU also are what you put on your face!

I love to whip up my own beauty potions…those of you who read my blog know I love to eat, cook,makeup and entertain. So, here is a fresh beauty concoction to try and enjoy! My friends who are of Asian descent recommend this and their skin looks amazing.

Peaches & Cream Face Mask

1/2 ripe peach
1 tsp.honey
1 to 2 tablespoons of crushed almonds

High in beautiful nutrients…the peach can NATURALLY exfoliate and smooth skin gently. They also have properties that lighten sun spots.Peel the peach and mash. Grind or crush the almonds in a coffee grinder.I have one just for beauty recipes. Add honey and make a nice mask out of this.I apply this to face and neck.
Leave on fifteen minutes.Rinse well.Look in the mirror and glance at the new texture and feel of your skin.
Moisturizer to follow.
You will be tempted to eat this mask…but enjoy it ON your face~
