I LOVE AMERICA and the beauty of Blueberries!

Since I was a little girl, I have been making beauty potions. Now that I’m older and as a beauty professional, I love to do them even more.

Hot and steamy weather calls for this!
This is one of my summer favorite beauty recipes for amazing skin treatments not found in a jar but down the aisles of Whole Foods Market or a market wherever you may shop and live! Your skin will LOVE the benefits from these recipes. You can make this recipe for yourself,with your daughter, your mom or even your sweetie.

My husband loves these spa at home recipes too!

½ cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
½ cup of plain creamy Greek yogurt
¼ cup of organic local Honey if possible

Rinse the berries and place in a blender. Add the honey and yogurt.
Blend until creamy. Using your clean fingers or a stiff fan mask brush apply the mask to your face and neck.
Allow it to rest on your face at least 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with luke warm water and a
washcloth.

Please note: If you are allergic to the above obviously do not try the recipe. In addition, these are made from scratch so the shelf life is a few days in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator. I suggest using them to the last drop and enjoy it all at once or in a couple of days.

I also like to use blueberries in a salad,over yogurt or freeze as ice cubes in lemonade.

Blueberries are like healthy candy for my body instead of a real candy bar. Honey is a natural moisturizer that locks in moisture. Your skin loves yogurt and all of the above are found in fabulous face and body creams sold on store shelves.

If you love to be healthy, eco-friendly, green and gorgeous…come back to my blog soon.

Happy 4th of July if you live in America!!!

If you don’t have a fab weekend and enjoy this recipe too.

If you’ve got the thyme!

My weekend when not guest speaking out of town or painting a sports celebrities face is spent not only working in my makeup studio painting pretty faces and spirits but also stirring up some beauty.

I had some left over thyme from a chicken recipe I cooked for my husband and was in a lemony mood.

So here is what I whipped up…A YUMMY SCENTED and fabulous exfoliating hand and body scrub!

1/4 cup of coconut oil (can’t get enough of it) Whole Foods brand

1/4 cup Greek olive oil

1 cup of granulated sugar

1 dash of lemon essential oil (Auracacia brand)

1 sprig of thyme

Stir them all together with a whisk OR a portable hand mixer/blender. Creamy and sugar with a lemon scent twist.

After this was all done. I sprinkled the mixture with a few torn pieces of thyme.  The herb thyme has benefits but I LOVE the way it looked in the scrub.

I poured from a bowl into empty jam jars.(recycle your jam jars or buy and fill Ball brand jars)

Add a mini wooden spoon and you have a sweet exfoliating gift for yourself or someone else.

Something to do over these cold wintry months and take care of your skin too.

Enjoy this from a beauty who is a true foodie. Oops almost forgot I added the zest of lemon on top of the jar before I put the lid on and shook it back and forth.

D.I.Y. dahling!

So in love with this nail lacquer!

in the cable Car- Pool OPI
Do you know what it means?

No,its not the name of that charming little boy character from the old Andy Griffith show.I am not sure how you spell his name from the show I do know that if one more person calls this iconic nail polish “O-Pee”, I think I am going to have to scream. It is pronounced by its letters OPI and it stands for….Odontorium Products Inc.
You see the first nail products were derived from the dental industry.The words comes from a Greek word meaning “of the mouth”.Think about it if it is good for your mouth it must be safe for your nails as well.That’s what an OPI representative shared with me.In fact I was told years ago that their first office was in a building that was a dental lab.

I’d like to think of the name standing for “OUTSTANDING,professional,individual because every time you have an OPI mani and pedi with a PRO that is what you are going to get. OPI nail techs and business owners LOVE and breathe all things OPI!

I so love OPI it is such a quality and fabulous nail polish.The colors come in a rainbow of shades.So many shades… so much value!

I am allergic to MOST nail lacquer and you might be too.
If you get itchy eyelids,cat scratch kind of marks on your eye lid area and face from touching your eyes and face from a new manicure or polish at home…You might be allergic to your current nail lacquer. What I discovered is that OPI works for me and my skin too!

No matter what your mood OPI has a hue for you!
This hot hue is a shade from the new San Francisco Collection isn’t it rich and gorgeous?

Nails have never been more in!
Paint the town red,pink or with flecks of gold too and have fun doing it.
