FALL is definitely here maybe not so much in Florida 🌴🌞 where I now live but it is here.
As we choose a new look in makeup for fall… I think sometimes less is better! I love to do a soft and pretty makeup look. And I love to make up my clients in a soft kiss ofcolor way. Yes, a deeper lipstick is always a good idea.
But you don’t have to go over the top with your makeup! Now, if you love a lot of it and like it on your face all at one time … I get you.
I am a beauty lover too!!!
But if you are intimidated with makeup and applying it…Don’t be. Just apply a lipstick 💄 and eye 👁 liner.
I have met so many women in my career who say they are so frightened and tell me they suffer with makeup. You don’t have to suffer with it EVER!
It’s OK to apply your makeup softly and not wear it all! Really!

If you want to give yourself a little treat buy yourself some flowers.There are so many beautiful flowers 🌺 in season!
Even more a reason to TREAT YO’SELF Darlings!
I have always loved picking flowering weeds, flowers and buying bouquets of flowers from the flower market too. It really makes me happy 😊 and it should bring happiness to you too just by looking at them too. 🌻
Treat yourself this fall to a pretty bouquet 💐 or a few flowers in a mini vase.
For those of you who love 💕 makeup and to put on your 💄 makeup this post is for you. For those of you who don’t use much makeup you’ll still enjoy it and learn something new!
Self-care Sunday is all about taking care of yourself and have a little fun doing it!
Now to make your life easier and beauty rituals you need to carve out an area just for you and all your beauties too.
Just make sure you don’t arrange your makeup and skincare directly in the sun ☀️ sunlight. It will ruin your makeup and skincare formulas, lighten your hues, and make your makeup melt too.
I like to separate and organize my makeup brushes, blushes, eyeshadows, 💄 lipsticks and more in a pretty way. I’ve used and repurposed antique plates, tea cups or wine 🍷 goblets. I have also have found some gorgeous display items at TJMaxx, Kirkland’s, Hobby Lobby and more. You DON’T have to spend a fortune $
The important thing is that all your products and things are at your fingertips! Ready when you are.
Another thing I found was from a cocktail 🍸 container. Allow me to explain. I enjoy entertaining with a product called Cocktail Caviar and I love the jar. I couldn’t stand to throw the empty container out. So, I cleaned the jar out and filled with fluffy pink 💕 cotton balls I found! It has a lid so dust doesn’t get on them and keeps them dust free.
I love Mother Earth 🌍 and have learned to recycle more! It feels good to do it too.
I like to add a fresh seasonal 💐 🌸 🌻 flowers to my space. And I also keep an aloe plant 🌱 on my vanity just in case. Aloes are great for sunburns, curling iron burns and any allergic reactions that come up on the skin!
A hand mirror is always a good idea too! Not just the main one on the wall.
I also keep bottles of sparkling water 💦 and mini bottles of 🍾 Champagne in a mini fridge by my vanity. It is by Cooluli…I store my face masks,creams,toners,jade roller,agate roller,massage stones,makeup in.
What do you do?
Do you have a special cozy place for you to get all dolled up in? Chat beauty with me. Share with me. I love hearing from you.
I traveled to Chicago recently but it wasn’t long enough! Although I travel ✈️ there often. I never get tired of exploring new places and visiting some of my fave places too.
Here are a few highlights from my trip.
I love staying at the W hotel on the lake and I also love to stay at the iconic Palmer House. But this time I stayed with my husband at the Residence Inn 700 in the Loop. What a beautiful stay! Such cozy Suites with fabulous beddings and a kitchen with a dishwasher, huge refrigerator and mini loft bing room space area.
I discovered a beautiful church around the in corner in a section they call the Loop. I fell 😍 love! I attended several masses and services. A gem 💎 in the heart of downtown. Run by Franciscan friars.
I love shopping the magnificent Michigan Avenue. AKA the Miracle Mile …
So many shops so little time! One of my fave fashion shops is called Akira. Also since I love 💕 all things fun I shop at Riley Rose!
Food glorious food is another thrill in Chicago! I never get tired of their hot dogs, donuts and dim sum in Chinatown! Oh and this time I discovered a real chocolate filled bao delight! Warm and fluffy and so delicious.
I so wanted to go for a spa day but after doing everything else no time left.
As you take in and soak in every minute of summer in the sun 🌞 your skin will get dry and look it too. A simple mask I love to do and highly recommend cause it is a natural beauty recipe too. A dermatologist shared this recipe with me.
This home-madeskin smoothie and soother is as near as your kitchen.
All you need is:
1 ripe avocado (I prefer organic)
1 tablespoon of local organic honey
Mash the avocado and spoon in the honey. Stir together. Apply to your face and decollette. Leave on the face at least 5 minutes.
Rinse well with a lukewarm water and a washcloth.
Your FACE will love you back and feel lovely!
You can use this recipe year round but it is wonderful around this time of year.
Doesn’t always mean you won’t be allergic to that product. I lost my fav gel eyeliner pencil on a recent trip. I was so LOST without it! I like that black liner almost as much 😉 as I love wearing 💄 lipstick! And that’s a lot!!!
I went to the local big box beauty store and purchased an eyeliner. I was so happy… mission accomplished!!! Until about 2 minutes after applying it. My eyes got a film over them and I couldn’t see quite as clear. My eyes wanted to close and try and clear whatever was causing that. The itching started just a bit but it was so annoying like that film forming across my eyes.
I just had to stop 🛑 everything and remove the eyeliner with a tissue as I wasn’t at my hotel and was working. It reminded me again that just because the product says fragrance free,opthamologist and allergy tested… it can STILL cause allergic reactions.
I threw out the eyeliner and did not want to share the germs with a friend or my sisters. Remember this too!
Don’t forget if you can test products in the store. Have them freshly sharpen the liner and try it. If they are in a box and all packed up I know you can’t.
But when a tester is not available you are taking a chance. So always test drive products just in case.
