Today on TV I’m sharing some unique and fun ideas for gift ideas just for the man or men in your life. Husband,boyfriend,son,grandpa or”bestie” guy.

Some I have given to my husband and some ideas are so imely for today!

The thing is we often think we need those gifts to be LARGE in size and price! And designer brand names too! But I have learned that’s not always necessary. With a little age comes wisdom. The holidays don’t have to be so stressful. It isn’t even our Birthday!!! (YOU know the TRUE meaning of the Christmas season)

Sometimes the most awesome gifts are from your heart and with a little reflection and thought when it comes to that special someone!

Hurricane comfort!

choco-smoothie-blog-photoGoing stir crazy!!! Been indoors for 24 hours.

The palm trees are doing more than swaying,gray and ugly looking outside and the rain is pounding on our house. We are in the middle of hurricane Matthew! Wish I could take a photo but don’t dare step out of our house. We usually lose electricity in our area of Jacksonville Florida when there are tropical storms and hurricanes but by the grace of God we have lights and AC and the other comforts we all have grown to love and take for granted. Kind scary.

Very stressful! I have eaten all the good healthy food and now unto potato chips,circus peanut candy and ginger snap cookies!

MY thighs are gonna rise after this storm. He! He! I am in my kitchen and discovered a recipe card I got from an event I attended. I just made this for my husband and I know he is going to flip when he wakes up from a hurricane nap. It was so delicious…my lips told me.

 

This shake is SO delicious and EASY to make!

I found it at http://www.peanutbutterlovers.com I guest speak at the Southern Women Shows and they are always there handing out recipes,free peanut samples and do a cooking stage presentation too.They represent the peanut farmers.

1 cup of low fat chocolate milk

1 ripe frozen banana

2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter of your choice

Blend above and you’ll have a creamy,dreamy,decadent delight!

To my husband I will be a rock star in my kitchen (because of this DRINK recipe)and you can be too! But you don’t need a husband or beau to enjoy this LUSCIOUS drink!

 

 

An aromatic gift he won’t forget!

Friday Night Beauty Tip!

Fish_016185-12900-9

My doctor said I should increase my fish intake by adding more salmon and other fish too.I am cooking up a storm with more salmon,enjoying more fresh sushi and other fatty acid foods but also want to back that up.

I came across this product by NeoCell and as usual had to share it with you.

Fish collagen +HA is a revolutionary youth and beauty enhancing complex that works on the DEEP,structural layer of the skin,called the dermis,to increase the strength,elasticity and hydration.levels of the skin.

Collagen Type 1 provides the vital building blocks needed for increasing the mechanical strength of the skin. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the dermis,which promotes elasticity for wrinkle prevention. These nutrients ALL work together in the dermal layer to keep your skin looking younger. NOW, my husband is hooked too.

NeoCell my go to for supplements to look gorgeous and feel good too!

MY skin loves this! My mirror tells me so.

Peter Max kissed me!

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…

BANANA Photo

I love bananas and the more unattractive the better!
Just like people …please don’t judge a book or banana by it’s cover.You never know what you will find.

I love to snack on them!
Whip up fresh muffins with these mushy flavorful delights.
Rub elbows and knees with them.
Make hydrating hair masks with bananas!

Here is a skin moisturizing face mask for YOU try this fall. It is fresh,fast and easy to make!
My southern hunk husband loves it too!

I’m Bananas D.I.Y. Face mask

1 tablespoon of honey
1 over ripe banana
1 ripe avocado

*Add a dash of lemon juice so the avocados don’t turn.But it is not necessary.
Mash all of the above and give your skin some LOVE!

Apply it to your face and neck. Skip the eye area but you can apply mask to the lips.

Honey makes it all stick together and helps hold in moisture. The beautiful banana can both hydrate and gently tighten the skin.
Avocados are rich in goodness and hydrating bliss.

Got any left over??? EAT it.

I love to cook,play in my kitchen and do makeup.

What do you do with fresh bananas?
Share a recipe with me.Post a comment. I would LOVE to hear from you.
