Channeling my inner Christie Brinkley!

In the midst of cleaning and organizing the office in my makeup studio for a few weeks. It is hard to have an immaculate office and desk when you are doing beauty services and helping clients with their retail shopping needs. I discovered a box I had a hair piece in. I also reconnected with an old friend onmy desk …Timeless Beauty a book that I read and put down and read again. I think it is all about this book cover!

Who doesn’t want to look like Christie Brinkley when we turn her age!  Right? BLOG Christie Brinkley

I also noticed I opened the box but did not ever use what I bought from Hair2Wear. Christie’s ever poplular Wispy Hair Wrap. Doesn’t that sound sexy?

I eagerily dropped what I was doing to test drive the hair wrap like she uses on her own hair.  I tried it out 5 different ways and no matter what I did my Wispy Wrap

I said out loud…“Looked like CRAP”. and worse yet I ordered the wrong brown hair color!

So disappointed  I shot this photo and put it back in the box under my desk. I so wanted sexy effortless wispy hair like Christie. Then I remembered  when I and why I bought it… she demo’d on TV with the show host and made it seem so easy. But her next guest selling appearance she demo’d even more and started pulling out many (NOT just one to get her look) hair pieces that were strategically placed all through her hair. SHE is a MASTER at it.

It just goes to show you…don’t judge a book by it’s cover. This beauty really works it in more ways then one…with what appears to be effortless style. Maybe I’m missing something and I need to buy a pair of those to die for shimmery and blinged out high heels,a gold sweater and strike a pose ala Christie’s cover on the book.

Perhaps then THIS brunette will look like Christie Brinkley! (Wink…Wink)

No Chemicals BEAUTY

photo Oats.JPGThe beauty of food! You can eat it and you can wear it for the sake of prettier looking skin too.

NO chemicals and no ingredients you can’t pronounce.

I LOVE Sundays not only because it is a spiritual kind of day but unless I am working out of town or traveling out of town I am off on Sundays and at home sweet home!

Sunday Funday… Time to recharge,relax and unwind.

It seems everyone’s skin is going through some kind of issue because of the weather. Despite the fact that they say Spring is in full swing!

IF your skin is dry,itchy and longing for some attention here is one of my recipes that I am doing on my face and neck toward my breasts today. Sometimes I switch things up and change an ingredient to add another instead. But this is my go to.

What you will need:

1 cup of oatmeal (not instant)

1/2 cup of local farmer honey

1/2 cup of cold-pressed olive oil

Place oatmeal in a mini grinder or food processor.

Grind the oatmeal into a powdery mix.

Add the honey  to the oatmeal and stir.

Lastly add the olive oil and mix with a spoon by hand in a bowl.

Smooth on a clean face. Leave on at least 10 minutes.

Rinse well with a lukewarm washcloth. Follow with your skin toner. I adore rosewater.  Next apply a dash of your moisturizer on your face and eye gel around your eye area.

You will love the way your makeup glides on smooth as silk and the way your skin feels and looks. Hydrated and happy!

I am almost done with my beauty book (Whenever I  think I am done writing it I want to add something else) and this is a peek inside  my beauty filled world.

Enjoy darlings!
