Got left over candy canes?

Never fear there is so much to do with them my dears!

Smash them in their wrapper and rim your hot cocoa mugs with them for a peppermint twist.

Break them in pieces and place them in a bowl filled with good quality vanilla ice cream. What you’ll have is a yummy candy cane ice cream on the cheap.

Rim the broken and crushed candy canes,dip in lemon juice and watch them stick around the rim of a cocktail glass. Pour your favorite cocktail inside.

Bake sugar cookies and place a few peppermint crumbles on top before they fully cook in the oven.Be careful when you do it but enjoy this tasty cookie twist.

Grab your nieces,sisters,mom,grandchildren or BFF and make a DIY a Candy Cane lip gloss!

I LOVE LIPS! Better than chocolate (almost) I love ANYTHING to do lips!
As you may know my signature slogan and mantra is “A woman without lipstick is like a day without sunshine”.
Hope you have some sunshine on your LIPS today?

Today I want to share with you some of my fave “go to” things for your lips from products to LIP beauty rescues. I was featured on the only local talk show on the First Coast called The Chat in sunny Jacksonville Florida. WTLV NBC 12 & WJXX ABC25

Does your lipstick or lip gloss run down your lips and out of the outline?

Use a clear lip pencil.

Yes,this transparent lip liner stick works wonders on your lips!
No color just an invisible looking pencil that you use just like you would with a lip liner with pigment.
If you need a little more help try Perfect Day Lip Base. Like foundation for your lips it makes your lip color stay on better, remain true and helps keep it from running too.

BOTH of these products help and also great for smokers,drinking straw sippers and suckers and sunbathers lips.
You know what I mean those pesky lines around your lips!

Has your favorite lipsticks been discontinued,broke or melted?

Lip Motel to the rescue! This long empty motel compact with mini compartments will hold your lipsticks or lip balms.Simply scoop your leftover lip products with the mini spatula into the empty spaces and save them to use over and over again. Eco chic and fabulous.Be your own makeup artist and use the cool stuff we use too.This is a makeup artists secret!

What’s trending in lipsticks and with Celebrities ?

They are not only are wearing a fabulous lipstick but wearing lipstick,lips and nail polish on their ears,necks and fingers in the form of bling!
They are even wearing handbags in the shape of luscious lips for night clubbing. It is a conversation piece and fashionable fun!

Dehydrated lips LOVE and need this recipe I call …Sugar Me Up

What you’ll need:

1 teaspoon of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of Organic coconut oil (I LOVE the Whole Foods Everyday 365 Value brand)
1 drop of vitamin E oil (optional)

Stir the above up and enjoy as a lip exfoliator weekly. If your lipsticks are drying out your lips. You NEED this DIY treatment!

If you want a skin soothing lip balm on the cheap. Try this aromatic Rose scented Lip balm!

What you will need:

1 teaspoon or 2 of Organic Coconut oil (depending on size of container)
1 drop of Aura Cacia rose essential oil (optional)

Stir the two well and pour into a container from the Dollar store or a mini jam jar. Apply on clean naked lips nightly!

I ALWAYS kiss my lips goodnight with a lip treatment.I also take beauty supplements and for my sweet tooth and prettier skin take a Beauty Burst a day alongside my other vitamins.

Home-made Beauty Tips

photo-1.JPG TV 4  8-16-2014Celebrate your face and skin this summer with these natural beauty recipes!

I love to shop Whole Foods Market and the Farmers markets for the ingredients to make these D.I.Y. recipes.
All of my recipes are cheap,quick and easy to make. And unisex…your daughter or sweetie can get in on the touch of the spa action too.

Key Lime Pie Body Treatment
2 cups of plain Greek or regular yogurt (use less if you are making a smaller portion)
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tablespoon of honey (Bee Friends Farm)
1 tablespoon of lime

Blend all of the above and pour into a plastic bowl. Sit at the edge of the tub and rub on your body.Leave this treatment on at least 15 minutes.Rinse well and enjoy the way your skin feels.
* I like to scoop any remains and recycle re-purpose and place in a jar and save for another day.Lasts nicely in the refrigerator for a week or more.

Skin Brightening Lemon Cups

Say Bye Bye to dry discolored skin with this skin treat.
Next time you prepare a meal with lemons or make lemonade save the leftover lemons and rub the inside of the lemons on your elbows.This treatment will gently exfoliate and help the discoloration most of us get on our elbows and knees.Rub the meaty part of inside of a lemon and go round and round motion on your elbows. It can also be done to your kneees.Rinse with luke warm water and a washcloth.Apply your favorite hand and or body lotion.

Bathe in Beauty

I love to to take a bath and surround myself with things that are pretty. Make your body happy with this awesome bath idea.
Sprinkle your fave bath salts or Epsom salts in warm bath water.Add a couple edible flowers. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite drink or fresh water in a plastic glass and enjoy eating an edible flower too. It is kinda FUN.Make it even more decadent and add a piece of decadent chocolate!

Be good to YOURSELF…if you don’t who will?
