LAST Saturday was the annual Shop Small Biz Saturday. Started by American Express to shine a light on small businesses. What a beautiful gesture and cause to start to do for small businesses.
So I hope you will think SMALL brands and go shopping 🛍 in your community wherever you live. Eat 🍱 and sip ☕️ 🍷 local too! Not just one day last Saturday but all season long. Small businesses can’t make it without you!
On behalf of myself and other business owners WE Thank You for shopping with us and spreading your shopping love. Not just on Amazon!
I love to give gifts and enjoy making my own glam boxes and fill them with a few treasures and maybe a few chocolates or home-made cookies at the bottom of the box as an unexpected surprise!

So gift yourself this holiday season and cross off all the others on your list with a few of the above gift ideas. Self-care has never been more important and we need to pamper and take care of ourselves and those we love and care about too.
There is a chill in the air and that means Thanksgiving and the other holidays are near. I know you’ve heard or read it all in the news. The supply chain, shortages and more. Don’t stress I’ve got you!
I’ve discovered some unique and pretty ideas to give from hair to toe! Not just for the ladies.
CHI haircare has some new product collections for curly hair,dehydrated hair and a NEW brush that is a 3 in 1. It is a brush that smooths your hair, is a blow dryer and a styler brush for silkier looking shiny hair. I already own the Spin & Curl styler, a hot pink blow dryer by CHI
But this brush is next level fabulous!
So lightweight and easy to use! I think it is an awesome give to give to YOURSELF or someone else.
This week on TV 📺 in my beauty & lifestyle segment I will feature this brush for my holiday gift ideas and stocking stuffers.
Stay tuned for more gift ideas that I featured on TV and have discovered I will share some cool gift ideas. Some of us may also need gifts after Chanukah or Christmas in case you forgot someone on your list. Also don’t forget those hostess gifts.
Self-care is so important now more than ever! Taking care of the hair between haircuts. Conditioning it and using the right tools is what it us all about. Make that haircut and fresh color last longer.
You don’t have to pay a fortune 💵 to look your best! OR to give as a gift.
Shopping for a a gift for a loved one or friend takes time.
Don’t rush shopping for a gift especially when it is for someone special.Every night I sit by candlelight and this light …A serene salt lamp. I have them all over my home and in my business too. They illuminate to room and create such a calming and pretty ambience and a mood all their own.
A salt lamp has so many beautiful benefits! And healthy ones too.
They purify the air,great to use around electronics and computers,smokers homes and are great for people with allergies. Google them and you’ll find ALL their benefits.
I highly recommend them. They used to cost a bit of money but now have come down in price and also gotten smaller and more portable even to clip in to your computer to brighten up the mood or your work space.
I also think they are kinda sexy and cool.
If you’re looking for that perfect gift for HIM or for HER… Think about giving this as a gift. They will treasure a long time and think of you every time they flip the switch too.
Last night I attended my first Christmas party of the season with my husband for his business. Over cocktails I quickly discovered women who loved my lips and wanted to know how can they too create the perfect red lip!
I thought you’d like to know this too.So here you go!
The Perfect Tips for Red Luscious Lips!
You must start fresh with clean hydrated lips.
Apply my Kissy Lips lip exfoliating Treatment or make a mixture of brown sugar and honey for your lips.
Apply my Perfect day Lipstick base
Optional:Add a coat of China Doll lipstain next to make the color last even longer.It will stain the lips with a rosy stain and make the red hue cling better too.
Apply red lip liner or an invisible lip liner that is transparent yet locks color within the lip line.
Apply a luscious red lipstick or ared liquid lipstick (they are all the rage).
Blot your lips with a fresh tissue or blotting paper.(not powdered just plain)
Apply a second coat if you wish to make your pout look bolder.
DON’T rub your lips together. Little old ladies do that!
*To make this look even sexier like the makeup artists do in a VICTORIA SECRET runway shows or magazine shoot.Add a dash of a silver or gold lipstick Next add a super shiny gloss in the center of the lips for a sexy highlighted glow. A shimmery way to glow and make the lips look fuller!
You are ready to…Paint the town red,Gorgeous!
A red lipstick & gloss make the perfect gift for your bestie or family member! Not all gifts need to be costly and over the top. Fill them in Christmas stocking and put a bow on it and give. At this time of year…everyone seems to pull out their best red lipstick,shoes, purse or dress. Make the lips the center of attention.

Today’s beauty gift idea is if you’re a nail lacquer lover…Treat Yourself or someone else to a customized NAIL polish named after them.
I’m serious about and appreciate and good cup of coffee.
And my passion for desert flavors is real too. So I simply had to bring to your attention the new limited edition flavors of Nespresso.
Think Banana bread,Pumpkin Spice Cake and Gingerbread…all yum on the tongue.These are the new coffee capsules the company added to the already finest bean coffee’s they make. My lips just can’t resist.
I am in love with this top of the line brand.The Vertuoline Evolou machine brews the best cup of coffee I ever had. Really! And the unique centrifusion technology makes it buzz with delight. This one cup delight brews a mean aromatic cup of coffee in approx 20 something seconds.It is EASY to use…and comes out FAST,FRESH and FABULOUS!
And the cherry on top is the cafe like quality on top which is called crema…a generous frothy layer of love. I don’t use sugar because I am sweet enough and quite frankly I like the taste of it without it. The coffee machine also makes a delightful cup of espresso.Just like I have enjoyed in Italia.
So you know what to do…if you are looking for the perfect gift for HIM,for her or for yourself.This is so worth it.
You gotta trust me on this. And of course actors George Clooney and Danny Di Vito will say that too.We foodies have to stick together.
You know girls these days it seems almost every gal is looking for the magic beauty potioncelebrities love.Shop on line or in your area to find this skincare product…and fill her stocking with this! Madonna uses it & other celeb’s like Jennifer Lopez do too.http://www.dr.hauschka.com
Sorry I have not posted an update this weekend to my Holiday Gift Guide. Painting pouts pretty …my work got in the way.
Tis’ the season for giving gifts and filling those stockings on the mantle.
I found a brand that you are going to love girls! In fact they call themselves the Happiest Brand in the Land. This indie brand was started in 2002.It is Cruelty Free and filled with good for you ingredients.
I LOVE candy and marshmallows too. So this sent me over the moon by the way it smelled and the way it felt.The product I am talking about is a Marshmallow Cream lip scrub.
Kiss flaky dry lips with this beauty by Treat Beauty.
Like a lip balm on steroids this is a big hunk of luscious love for your lips.I say this because the colorful tube is huge but in a good way.
Made in Oregon with organic sugar,coconut oil,shea butter and other delights.It is a sweet recipe for the lips. TEENS would love it too.
They also have a matching lip treat and it is a moisturizing lip balm in the same flavor and old fashioned jumbo tube.
Soothing and great for even the most sensitive of skins.
