Green is the new black

Sometimes you have to go to the basics and as I continue down the path of eating more clean,care even more about what I put on my face and BODY and love Mother Earth by recycling as much as I can.

I wanted a reminder to women that going green is beautiful. So, I am about to come out with a green lipstick hue to remind them.This fun hue stains the lips and puts you in a good mood too.

Whatever your emotion is…it will tell a story of your mood from deep pinkish rose to soft violet. Counting down to Earth day I think this lipstick is a perfect fit. GREEN LIPS photo 3-2017.JPGTake a walk on the green side. If you liked the mood ring …this is your thing!

This Girls Gone Green!

Today is Earth day eve and I am trying to put you in MY mood! SundanceAPPLE photo

Enjoy somewhere where there is GREEN tonight or on Earth day.

Soak in that luscious green view that is so healthy for you!

Bite into a beautiful crisp GREEN apple and or other green fruit you love. Savour the taste on your tongue. I love my apples sliced with a big piece of Brie melted on top.Sensual YUM!

Don’t throw out those glass bottles use them again and again by refilling with pancake syrup  from a larger bottle. Reuse perfume bottles and or make some D.I.Y. spa delights and have them on hand for an awesome spa day or night! I LOVE this type of recycling.photo Thyme

Support a farmer and buy some fresh herbs and cook without herbs and spices from a plastic bottle or jar.

TEA TIME D.I.Y. photo

Treat yourself to a steam bath facial with fresh tea,flowers and herbs. Your skin will love you!

Hope you enjoyed these Eco-friendly tips please come back for more on Earth Day.

Jet setting for Beauty & Food

I am ready to share my recent finds in WONDERFUL Chicago. Guest speaking at the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa show is always an honor and my pleasure. But playing in a city I travel to is always a JOY. I love to discover new hot spots and to visit my fave places I continue to go back to.STAN'S

Welcome to Donut Heaven! Stan’s Donuts is an awesome donut place I fell in love with. While I love Do-Rite donuts and will never stop. Stan’s Donuts and staff  was the best! For almost 50 years Stan has crafted some of the world’s best donuts and started in Los Angeles. So many choices so little time!!! And they are ginormous!Don’t let the name fool you they have bagels and so many other yummies too.Including a Dirty Chai Tea! I love the name. Don’t you?

Next I had to stop at Ming Hin in Chinatown for DIM SUM …I ordered an array of fabulous delights from dumplings, to shrimp to Chow Fun. I did not order the tough bird staring at me on the menu. Although it was tempting to TRY.

I PIGEON

I always go back to Merz Apothecary for old time pharmacy and beauty finds and for a drink at the Palmer House.So tres chic.

I adore shopping the Magnificent Mile with all the amazing stores but  I love to go downtown on State Street that great street with mom and pop shops and eateries. I love a store called Agaci for fashionable finds.Nordstrom Racks there too.

The beauty show was filled with energy and mystical crystals. I got a Chakra reading by the master Linda Bertaut. She said I am SUPER-CHARGED with lots of energy!!! But warned me to watch out for burn out.I guess it is all about moderation isn’t it? Visit: http://www.chakralicious.com for more info.

Korean beauty is still trending and there is beauty from the sea with Repechage skin care.

I discovered some more fun beauty things. Stay tuned for my posts.

Oh and its almost time for MY Spring Beauty Giveaway! Come back and see how you might win and score.

Very interesting facts on ingredients in all things Beauty!

I couldn’t have said it any better. Read on.

If there’s one thing beauty lovers know (and, who are we kidding—beauty lovers know approximately everything), it’s that there are huge (like, Grand-Canyon-levels huge) discrepancies between American beauty products and foreign beauty products—specifically, the vast number of ingredients allowed in US formulations compared to the incredibly restricted formulations of beauty products overseas. And when it…

A Makeup artist’s …MUST HAVE!

On movie sets,TV shows we love,photo shoots in Hollywood, New York and Las Vegas… there is a big beauty buzz on this invention.Created by a woman and a PROfessional Makeup Artist!

While I never practiced using my hand as a makeup application pallette many women and men in the industry do.I am featuring these on my beauty and lifestyle segment today on a daytime TV show I do called The Chat seen on NBC12 in sunny Florida!

I want to bring attention to this brand as I really think it makes a lot of sense and is much needed. I don’t want somebody to make up my face with their lunch, body heat and more coming out of their pores. I know you know what I mean.Think about it. It is so much ore sanitary to use this Hygienic hand pallette skin shield by Hygeniskin.Latex free. It is essential. Effortless clean up and healthier for you and your clients health too.

The most amazing part of this brand is beside the invention itself is the woman behind the brand.Unfortunately she is no longer with us.She died of cancer but her husband is carrying on her brand and legacy.I want to help George keep it going and alive too !

As seen in the TREND REPORT by American Spa magazine as one of the hottest brands for 2017.

So, if you are  a makeup artist,studying to be one or simply care about being more sanitary when doing your makeup….you need this product in your life!
