A Pretty Yummy D.I.Y….

So can I mention how truly crazy busy I am especially this time of year? I know you are too…

I so wanted to post but my retail business has us helping Santa 8-10 hour days!!!

We are shipping glam galore. But I wanted to post something on my blog timely that you might want to make or do with your daughter,grand daughter or sister.

I truly LOVEย  to D.I.Y. over the holidays especially. They make perfect gifts for YOU or for someone else! This Candy Cane Kisses lip gloss recipe can be made with traditional candy canes and with Jelly Belly flavored candy canes.They are so colorful and yummy!

What you will need is:

1 CANDY CANE

1/4 cup of fresh organic coconut oil (Or you can use Vaseline)

Simply smash the candy cane on the kitchen counter.

Put the above a few pieces of candy and a scoop of coconut oil in a microwaveable bowl.

Place in a microwave and melt them both.

Stir well.

Pull out and let it cool on the counter but before it hardens…

Scoop the two up and place in a smallย  jar.

What you’ll have is an awesome yummy candy cane FLAVORED lip gloss.

*FYI if you prefer to make a peppermint balm infused with a stronger flavor of peppermint add a drop of food grade peppermint oil.I love adding a few of the smashed pieces inside.Fun to look at and festive.

The coconut oil feels amazing on the lips.And softens the lips. The delicious refreshing mint or Jelly belly flavors and colors make it even more fun!

Enjoy!

I hope you are enjoying the beauty of the HOLIDAY season. Take time to have some fun!

Mom’s Easy Guide to looking pretty!

I did a beauty and lifestyle segment on The Morning Show today and wanted to share with you some beauty and fashions secrets.

Mommy Makeup in minutes

First of all… you don’t need to wear a buffet of beauty on your face. Keep it soft and simple for daytime.
A tinted moisturizer…like Not Your Mother’s Foundation which has both a touch of foundation in a bottle of moisturizer.Pretty coverage and protection too.This is mult-tasking beauty at its best.

If you don’t want to use this type product and prefer less…at least apply a broad spectrum sunscreen like COOLA mineral sunscreen. If you love organic and unscented they’ve got you covered too.

Next add a few dots of salmon or honey yellow concealer to take away a pooped out appearance…around the eyes and the inner corner of the eyes too. Blend with warmth of your ring finger.

Next add a kiss of color to your cheeks with a soft brown bronzer with a dash of shimmer. Or choose a pinky peach for another type of healthy glow.

A lip gloss or a lip balm is the lazy girls go to product.
I also LOVE and highly recommend a creamy lasting lip stain like the ones on http://www.noreenyoung.com. They stain your lips with a nice rosy glow and are one step not three. Not drying nor do they make the lips peel or flake…just gorgeous healthy looking lips.

Mascara is optional…yes,optional! IF YOU cannot live without it…wear mascara and or accent your eyes with a soft liner in a chocolate or charcoal or COLOR.Clear mascara is IN~ Note: colored mascaras brighten the eye area. Dark black or brown will accent a tired appearance.

Want TO SET your makeup, make it last and a touch of natural color to your eyelids too? Try Asian Rice Powder! IT IS MAGIC. I am wearing it right now as I usually do and the work day is almost over and my makeup is lasting too~ Simply apply a dash of this block of powder that looks like a white brownie with your powder brush. Also apply it to your entire eyelid with an eyeshadow blending brush and you’ll have a soft NOT POWDERY LOOK eye shade and a natural finished face too. NOT a caked on face! I promise.

Spray a dash of your fav’ fragrance or sprinkle yourself with a dusting powder and you’ll look and smell delicious.Your hand and body lotion can be the fragrance of the day. It will both make you smell delightful and hydrate your skin too.

Pure hair eco friendly spray by IT&LY is a great on the go spray.
This company loves the planet and your hair too! Always keep hairspray and if your hair is medium length or longer carry a hair clip or pretty pony holder in your tote bag or diaper bag. Using it will instantly make you look more polished even on a bad hair day.

If you are really pressed for time do what celebrities do! Wear a gorgeous pair of sunglasses and a sexy shiny gloss or bold lipstick. A smile is the best accessory you can wear and a pretty pair of earrings or a unique scarf or sparkling necklace can make your face and skin glow.

There’s no excuse why you don’t have 3, 5, or less than 10 minutes in the morning to look good for you.

A little dash of color goes a long way!

I do it every day and do it for me first and the world second too.
They say presentation is everything…present yourself in a beautiful way and feel good too.

Get ready to BE KISSABLE this Valentine’s day!

hot lipsKissing is so much fun and feels so good.Don’t you agree? I love to kiss and be kissed so with that said here is a plan to make your kissing memorable. Valentine’s day or any day!

Get ready to pucker up with… Supersmile Whitening toothpaste. All you need is pearl size drop on a DRY toothbrush. A fav with celebrities, models and Me!

Clean your tongue with the Supersmile tongue cleaner strip. It works so beautifully on scraping off bacteria, food remains and fresher breath will be yours.I recommend using this nightly.

Supersmile has a mouth rinse that is nice. But if you have not so pretty breath at times TRY SmartMouth a mouthwash system that keeps your breath extra fresh!
Dental floss can save your life…the health of your teeth is connected to your heart. No care your heart will suffer.Keep heart healthy and FLOSS daily. I love GLIDE dental floss.
Choose a sexy lipstick shade that makes you happy and you feel looks good with your skin tone. I LOVE high-powered and pigment classic Hollywood red! Go ahead… take a walk on the wild side. Just for a day or night. I LOVE THESE LIPS and the sexy pretty imprint. You want these kinds lips too. Don’t you?

You can skip lip liner or I like to use a INVISIBLE lip liner for shaping your lips beautifully… either to make them look fuller or smaller.

Add a KISS of gloss on top in the center and repeat the same to the bottom center of the lips. Secret of makeup artists~

While out and about…and you are eating a rich garlic meal…clean your mouth by eating parsley from your plate or MINT from your iced tea. It works!

Pout and shout I love you!

PS
GUYS LISTEN UP …YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING but the lipstick or liner. But do use a lip conditioner every day for 5 days before KISSING.
Baby it is so cold outside…and snowy too.This weather does make a difference on your skin and lips.Get ready for a whole lot of KISSING~
