Come back …Beauties~

Hello Sunshine!

Greetings from sunny Florida!

The most frequently asked question I hear on a daily basis is how do I get my skin to look like yours?

The answer is simple. I take care of it.Since I was a little girl I spent time devouring my mothers and sisters creams and enjoying the ritual of treating the skin daily.Next, I went on to spread the message and held skincare sessions with my friends and their faces.I was only five years old but somehow I KNEW it was important. I never knew how important and I also never thought I would end up in the business of skincare and beauty.However,moving from the New York metropolitan area did not prepare me for so much sun and the danger that can come.If you don’t want to age faster…USE sunscreen.You will still get some sun and color but be armed and protected.

It is the best beauty advice I can give you for pretty healthy looking skin next to eating well.

It is that time of year my dears when you want nothing more than to dance in the sun and let your face and body get some golden color.

Keep sunscreen handy next to your cell phone or tablet. You will be so glad you did.cropped-sunscreen-beach-2014-photo.jpg

Dim Sum …tiny bites of exotic deliciousness!

photo DIM SUM 2016If you are looking for an exotic brunch in NYC this is it! Your new spot to dine!

It is called Joy Luck Palace and it is on 98 Mott Street in NYC.

Chicken feet,Beef short ribs,shrimp dumplings,pork steamed dumplings,taro root,Chinese like potatoes and more oh my. I had to try almost one of everything!

Ladies push metal carts around filled with tiny bites of exotic delights…including sweets.I’ll never forget the first time my husband experienced it. You should have seen the look on his face. If you haven’t been you point to what you want to try and eat and they serve it to you.Most do not speak English or speak broken English and it is hard to know what they are saying in Chinese.

Oh what a fabulous time I had (they seat you with other people not your own table) I was seated with women who were around 80 years young doing what we do best… Girl Talk but spoken all in Chinese.I don’t speak Chinese I speak English and Polish. They sipped hot tea like it was a great glass of wine!

After the meal they nodded goodbye and went on their merry way fed and happy.

It was a lovely sight to see…I will be there one day.

If you are ever in NYC look them up. they are fairly new and this location used to be The Grand Harmony but now has been renovated,new chefs and new and even better dim sum…which I did not even think was possible!

As I have told you before I love to cook,eat out and makeup! EAT up what the world has to offer and explore beyond your door,your town,your country.Life is a beautiful buffet of people,places,cultures and glorious things! Don’t you agree?

sweet-cream-body-milk-lotion-bottle-25

Actually he isn’t the milk man but almost it is my UPS man.

I love all things beauty and food you must know that by now if you read my posts. I am in love with this creamy milk like bottle with old-fashioned charm and the way it feels.It is called Sweet Cream Body Milk and their logo is a cow.

This delicate hand and body moisturizer is infused with vitamin-E. Rice bran oil lightly fragranced and notes of warm cream. my skin can’t enough of it. My clients can’t get enough of it either.

Paraben and Sulfate Free Vegan Gluten Free and 95% natural.Celebritiies covet it…you will too.

Made by farm girls in Texas.

Baby, winter is coming and so is the DRY ratchet skin. Take care of yourself from neck to toe with this dreamy and creamy cream.

Get Glowing with Pumpkin!

I love to cook and makeup in my kitchen and at my vanity.

Try this D.I.Y. and your skin will be on a pumpkin happy high!

In the fall your skin needs some love with something fresh and that gives your skin gentle exfoliation.

1/2 Cup of PLAIN old pumpkin (canned is OK too) Not the pumpkin pie one.

1/2 teaspoon of organic honey

Mix the two together. Let this mixture rest at least half an hour on the counter.

Apply on a CLEAN face. It will not dry perse and harden like a clay mask. This is a creamy mask.

The beautiful benefits of this mask are…your skin will soak the honey in and it will lock in moisture.

The pumpkin is really rich in anti-oxidants …Vitamin C,E and A.

Anti-aging and skin brightening. Your makeup will glide on silk and your skin will look better too.

Fall doesn’t only mean a change in the leaf colors in nature. It also is a time your skin changes too!DIY PUMPKIN MASK

Flowers and herbs….Can make you feel better and healthier! I am trying to enjoy them even more before the winter chill and frost arrive in Florida. I love fresh mint,rosemary and other herbs growing outside my door.

Surround yourself with them to make you happy!

  • Eat parsley to freshen up your breath!
  • Make a cup of cozy hot tea with fresh peppermint or mint!
  • Bathe in bubbles and the scent of some fresh rose petals to stress less.
  • Place eucalyptus branches in your shower and steam your way to breathing better from allergies.
  • Add edible flowers to a salad. and make your day more beautiful and even better.
  • Massage your shoulders gently with grape seed oil and a smooth and soothing river rock from your garden supply.
  • Can’t get to sleep…use Chamomile to help you get those ZZZ’S.

Enjoy the beauty of these simple things I promise they can make your heart sing.

Say hello to a happier new you!

Black Magic

NAY NAY lashes Easy Elegance
Wicked good ideas~ Not just for Halloween !!!

There is power in a black lipstick!
It’s not just for Halloween. I like to use it to deepen light lipsticks or change the color of other lipsticks.

Deepest  Black mascara accentutates your eyes and defines them even more.

A Black Cat liquid liner gives you a fine line and or makes a bold statement line. Use on top of the eyelid at lash line or underneath for definition.

Black dark eye shadow like the kit by Makeup Revolution USA/London’s kit HARD Day is a fun kit to play with you can turn your day eye shadows into deeper evening shades when used on the top of them. Blend well.Say Hello to a sexy kitten!

And the icing on the black cake…. is a set of sultry sexy strip eyelashes!

I love the collection collaboration with Vegas _Nay and Eylure London.

This gorgeous social media sensation Vegas_Nay AKA Naomi Giannopoulos has some fabulous NEW strip lashes to bat your eyelashes with too.

Black Nail polish… Not only for your fingers and toes! I like to use it for scuff marks on my black shoes. You know the wear and tare on the heel and how the color comes off. Do not try with your Christian Louboutin’s. Only with other less expensive shoes and heels. Works like a charm.

Go ahead…add some black magic to your life in more ways than one!

IF your hands look like this….you need this!

HANDS HALLOWEEN 10-2015

You know who you are!!!

Are you tough on your hands and over task them to death?

I am in LOVE with this yummy scented, vegan and oh so skin hydrating hand cream. It is called Whoppie Cream and it also has a sister creams. It is great for your handbag,briefcase or backpack. Airline Travel friendly size too.

Don’t go around looking like this. Take care of your hands and cuticles and find beauty bliss!
