I couldn’t let today get away without reminding you …
Today is International Kissing DAY.
Get out there and spread some kisses,hugs and LOVE today.
It is almost that time to celebrate DAD…And with that comes the pressure to buy that perfect gift! Just remember it isn’t all about a material gift.
Sometimes its all about the little things.
Kisses are FREE !
All you have to do is pucker up and start kissing him.Head to toe…let him know how much you care.
Treat dad to breakfast in bed. Call me crazy but I do this almost daily (depending on my schedule) for my husband. I bought a bed tray years ago from PIER 1 and it was the best money I ever spent and I got it on sale too!
Go to the drug store,grocery store or the always awesome Whole Foods Market.
Fill a tote or a basket with all things you know he will love and within your budget. They have all you need for that eco-friendly health enthusiast in your life. (My new fave brand for men is OLIVINA MEN). From wine,beer,food to shaving lotion to lip conditioner…this store has what you need.
Get him a shirt he will LOVE…Magna Ready is a unique shirt company you’ve gotta see!
Give dad a a bath. Fill a tub with Epsom salts and add a few drops of pure essential oil like eucalyptus or peppermint or rosemary. Refreshing. I love the brand called Aura Cacia.
If you can get a baby sitter.escape and take him on a date. Nothing nothing date night. Surprise him and drive to the secret location. A yummy ice cream parlor,a new bar you discovered and more.
Drop him off at Massage Envy after you have prearranged an appointment for a relaxing and fabulous massage.
Take him out for or make him a tropical cocktail at home and give him a foot massage with olive oil from your kitchen at home while he sips away.
D.I.Y. Make him a beard and mustache oil that is if he has a mustache or beard. Did you know that hair gets dry and the skin underneath of it needs attention too.
1 ounce of jojoba oil
1/2 ounce of grape seed oil
8 drops of sandalwood essential oil
Combine all of the above and funnel in and place in an antique or medicinal bottle with a dropper if possible.Go ahead and shake this up. Include instructions on a sheet of paper on how to use it.
Use your imagination to make it happen. These are just a few of my ideas to get you going. Oh and of course a hand-made card or a LOVE letter would also be a good idea from you and one from the kids.Times running out!
Spread some love and enjoy dad’s day!
Happy New year’s eve day…if you wanna be kissed under the mistletoe. Try this BEAUTY D.I.Y! If your lips are dry give them a soft conditioning high with a teaspoon or less of coconut oil and or old time Vaseline.
Rub on clean lips and leave on last 10 minutes.If your lips are really dry add a dash of sugar left over from your last trip to Starbucks.Scrub gently.
Rinse well with lukewarm water and a washcloth.
Pucker up those lips and shake those hips…
Time to spread some cheer for the new year!!! Even if it is with a stranger.

KISS your lips with this~
The holiday is winding down and knowing you…you most likely over did it in the sun. Moisturize and make your lips softer tonight and go to sleep with this.
What you will need to get softer kissable lips is:
1 oz.coconut oil
1 oz. aloe (not the green one the clear gel)
A sprinkle of rosewater ( I use rosewater they use for baking for this recipe. But you can try some other scent.)
Stir all of the above and place in a mini jar.
LABEL it if you’d like… I found these sexy fun lips~
Kiss your lips with this yummy rose scented bliss!
Let me know how you like this recipe.Or share your D.I.Y. recipe with me. I love hearing from you!
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…

Your imperfections are too!
You may not like your freckles
You may not like your lips
You may not like the way your skin looks
You may not like your short eyelashes
You may not like your toes
You may not like the size of your jeans
I wish I wasn’t so short,I wish my hair texture was thicker… but this is the way I was born.
I LOVE what God and my parents gave me.These features are me! I don’t plan on having cosmetic plastic surgery to change me,nor tattooing myself and covering my beauty.
This new year let’s make ourselves look and FEEL good by eating better,walking or bike riding more with a dash of a gorgeous lipstick, a kiss from the sun from a walk on the beach or from a bronzer compact and a pretty nail polish.
Love the way you look and if you don’t there are so many wonderful beauty products and tools that can help you along the way. So relax (or start) today and start fresh in the new year starting tomorrow.
You have the power in you.Take better care of your body,mind and spirit too.
Who runs your world? You do!
No matter who you are you are beautiful in your own way too.
Be YOU-tiful! You are a beautiful miracle from God.
Getting ready to kiss tonight? Guys and Gals …Make sure it works out right.
Prep your lips for kissing with my sweet recipe!
Paint the town red. Bring out your sexiest outfit even if it is blue jeans and a sexy sparkly top.
You’re ready to toast the new year Hello and kiss under the Kisstletoe!
This is a unisex recipe.My husband loves it too.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Kiss your pillow and sheets at night with your favorite scent.
Just a tease please! (Please don’t over do it).
It makes you feel good and pretty sexy too!
I love to do this on hotel room sheets and pillow cases and in my lingerie draw too.
Do you do it too?
Scent your body with a dash of fragrance and scent your beautiful world.
