Peter Max kissed me!

Peter WJXT4

Today at the TV station I was doing a segment on all things Chocolate Beauty and having a Girls night In or a spa night with your sweetie.

While setting up my DIY yourself spa treats I heard a familiar voice over my shoulder. I have a GREAT memory for voices and accents too. It was a man with a northern accent. Being from NYC and NJ this accent warms my soul and reminds me of home.He asked me what was I doing and what were all the things. I was so focused on what I was doing I did not turn around but answered his questions. He told me he loves chocolate.

When I was all done…I tied my apron on and saw a familiar face to go with the voice.It was the next guest for the show had arrived and he too was waiting his turn. Then the camera crew started setting up some GORGEOUS,colorful paintings and it all came together to me. PETER MAX the world-renowned artist was in front of me!!!

Before I did anything else I put my hand on my heart and said I thought that was YOU and your soothing voice too”. He smiled and cupped my cheeks in his hands and kissed me! YES, he kissed me not once but bunches and with a happy smile on his face. Did I mind? NO, they came so quick and from a man who appeared so kind and romantic.

Something we definitely see in his artwork! I have always been a fan.

I asked if I could take a photo of him. He posed perfect and then he was up to go on set and be interviewed.

After his interview on his guest appearance/event at the Ponte Vedra Cultural Center he was ready to leave. The news crew had put my microphone on and I had to go LIVE in seconds.No time to say a proper goodbye.So across the studio on a commercial break I whispered with a loud voice…”Goodbye,Mr.Max”. He immediately turned around and blew me some air KISSES with his hands.

LOVE was and is in the air today and my ST. Valentine’s Day started in the most fabulous way!!!

There are ALL kinds of love.Husband and wife love,BFF love d the love of your family and children love. But this kind of stranger love winked at me today in its own special way. I embraced this life moment and happy I MADE HIM SMILE.

There is a beautiful saying I am not sure who said it and if I am completely writing it right.

“People may forget what you said,forget what you did but NEVER forget how you made them feel”

Peter Max made me feel fabulous and special today in his own quiet way!!! I only regret not having the time to take a photo with him today.

I may never wash my cheeks again.

Kiss! Kiss! Hope you are having a fabulous ST. Valentine’s day.

If you don’t know this man’s work that will color your life and world…

Kissing Spring a BIG Hello!

3.14 MacysI know it’s not quite spring everywhere by the weather I heard on TV today but you can still celebrate it in your heart and on your face and body with happy glee!

Here are my top tips to make you look and FEEL Gorgeous this Spring.

1. A cheap and chic NEW lipstick or lip gloss can update your look and face in seconds.
Find a color that brightens your complexion. Choose a light to medium bold color.Say “Bye Bye” to the dark shades.Lighten Up!Brighten Up!

2. Blush on! Choose a blush that accents your cheeks like a pretty coral or pink.Select one with shimmer for a soft luminous look.This gives you a dewy youthful look.

3. Eyeshadow doesn’t have to be complicated.Select one shade and go with it. You don’t have to use two or five shades to make your eyes stand out and look gorgeous.A soft champagne,a soft pink,a gold beige or touch of silver to highlight your eyes. You can mix and match matte and shimmer together for a natural glow look.

4. As a professional I highly recommend you own a rice powder to set your makeup,make your makeup last longer and to tone down shine.It is an Ancient Chinese secret.

5. Nail polish is taking over the world. It has a new look,shades,feel and texture.Pick up a few shades and paint your fingeres and toes creamsicle,sunny yellow or an aqua blue hue.Or better yet have a PRO give you a fresh manicure and pedicure and try a new hue.

6. Accessorize! Your face can look more alive with some new accessories.A little bling goes a long way I LOVE to make my face,neck and eyes glow with a dash of color and sparkle from an earring,necklace and more.

7. Buy a a new scent and spice up make your life with something floral,sweet,sexy or sultry.

8. Go window shopping. It not only will get you out of the house or workplace it will give you ideas to look better and fashionable. This was a happy spring window display I took at Macy’s last week in New York City.

9. You are what you eat…add more spring fruits ripe,ready and in season. Add a healthy rainbow of foods to your diet.

10. Pretty skin and a healthy body needs water.Whip up some water by infusing fresh fruits or veggies in a tall pitcher.Yummy and low cal way to get in your water intake and the light flavor of the fruit tastes awesome.

I hope you have a HAPPY SPRING! Paint the town with the new shade for this Spring…Radiant orchid.
