MOMMY BLOG IMG_5800

  • Choose a simple skin care line for your skin type. Seek a beauty professional for their recommendations if possible. If your skin is acting up with breakouts even more so. If you really have issues consult your dermatologist.
  • Add a probiotic dietary supplement your beauty routine. Beauty from the inside out. Ask your doctor first if you’d like.I highly recommend Flora Prenatal Probiology by Belle +Bella.
  • Use a tinted moisturizer and skip the foundation or use a lighter formula powder foundation.
  • Bronzing powder can be your go to all in one product. You can use it as your blush,soft eye shadow,eyeliner and more. To make gorgeous lips just mix it with a clear gloss or lip balm.
  • Think about using clear mascara that defines lashes but with no color.
  • Buy multi-tasking makeup brushes. One’s that are two or four brushes in one. You don’t need to use a 12 pc. collection/brush set.
  • It is not just about applying  stretch mark cream or vitamin e oil. YOU want to smell good and have softer skin too! Instead of a perfume or cologne choose a double duty product like a hand and body lotion with a touch of fragrance. (and you’ll be washing your hands a lot too) Both a win/win. Try a few refreshing ones by Therapispa.I love the White Tea with natural shea butter.Or Sweet Cream Body Milk Hans and body lotion for your πŸ‘› purse by FarmHouse Fresh . applying body lotion care cosmetic productPhoto by Linda Prebreza on Pexels.com
  • You are going to be hot and hormonal!!! Keep your face cool by using a Rosewater by Noreen Young Cosmetics or Orange Face Mists by Therapispa and healthy with spa water you can make at home and carry with you too.
  • Having a heat wave? Check out and wear a fashion accessory you can cool off with called  Hot Girls Pearls. Simply freeze the necklace for 4 hours and enjoy and look fashionable too. http://www.hotgirlspearls.com
  • Sometimes just wearing a BB or cream,a bold lipstick πŸ’„ or gloss and a pair of sunglasses πŸ•Ά are all you need to LOOK put together and feel it too!
  •  BONUS: Here is my recipe for…cooling foot 🦢 relief.
  • D.I.Y. Recipe for a summer 🌞 foot soak for tired moms,swollen ankles and leg swelling. Simply grab a handful of Epsom salts and add a drop or two of Aura Cacia Peppermint essential oil to a warm water foot bath. If you can tolerate it with  cold water even better. Aaaahh!

Girls Just Wanna Have Sun!

Don’t you just LOVE a sunny day?

It really makes me happier,think better and I know more productive.

How about you? What does the sun do for you?cropped-sunscreen-beach-2014-photo.jpgWhile I live in Florida. I spent more time at the beaches of New York and New Jersey shore than I do now.Crazy huh?After getting stung by skin cancer I just can’t spend a lot of time out there. Being in the beauty and spa business I really have to practice what I preach.

BUT when I do go here are a few of my fave things to take and do to make your day in the sun more fun.

  • At the top of my list I have to remind all you girls who are baking like cookies on the beach…to PROTECT yourself. Apply a shot glass size of sunscreen at least a half an hour before you leave.
  • Freeze fresh grapes and blueberries overnight and pack in snack bags to enjoy a refreshing treat at the beach. Watermelon (do not freeze)cubes is another cool you down treat.
  • Make your own fruit or vegetable infused water and put in a travel glass or bottle for sipping.

Examples: Kiwi and Strawberry slices or watermelon and mint. Get creative. But beware of citrus as it may interfere with your skin care and you can open the door to more sensitive skin in the sun = sun spots.

  • Apply a quarter size of almond oil to your hair and comb it back and up away from your face. Your hair will condition while you spend your day at the beach.
  • Give your feetΒ  foot facial by taking a walk on the beach near the water. The WET sand is cheaper than any potion you can buy on the beauty store shelf.
  • Rub in sunflower or almond oil on your cuticles (hand and feet) your skin will hydrate while you beach.
  • Get some exercise and rev up that heart and walk or take a short run.
  • Bring out you inner child and build a mini castle or sculpture …it will exfoliate rough fingers hands too.
  • Hunt for seashells that might have a hole in them and create a necklace when you get home of it to remind you of your time. I have some from Hawaii and every time I wear or look at them I think of my awesome trip.Beautiful memories.

Have fun in the sun and protect that pretty face!

Nail polish you can wear on your body as bling too! Isn’t it fabulous and oh so fun?

Paint the town pink this Spring and summer with the happiest necklace of all. And if you do nails for a career no doubt you’ll want this to wear and promote your services.

I love beauty and bling they are such cheap thrills.
