My SPA & Makeup show beauty haul!

IECSC beauty blog haul.JPGI just enjoyed  two glorious days of awesome at the IECSC conference in beautiful FT. Lauderdale Florida.

I am jet lagged and I didn’t even fly enjoyed …and enjoyed a little bit of Palm Beach and a bit of R&R so I am energized.

There was a vibe on the show floor that happily filled the air…after Hurricane Irma beauty professionals and beauty business owners were so ready to learn and explore the show floor.

I taught my two classes and enjoyed shopping every inch of the show floor.

I sniffed,touched,played in new beauty potions and makeup shades and watched other beauty and skin care experts slay the show floor with their demos and new product releases!

Here is my beauty and skin haul!

The show floor was a candy store for the skin care pro,spa,makeup artist and beauty retailer.

Color has become bolder in makeup, skin has never been more in and the future looks bright for business! Finally!

To Go Spa has added new face masks that offer instant gratification. My fave’s is for the neck and the lips.

Farmhouse Fresh has added soaps to their line and an awesome decadent Chai and a dash of honey Shea butter lotion for the body and hands. This line is coveted by Oprah,J Lo and Kim Kardashians makeup artist have used the brands Agave Nectar on the decollete and body on the red carpet.

Sassi lashes have the most amazing human hair lashes that a lot of makeup artists were buzzing about.

Tan Towel is the safest got to tan that not only do I use but celebrities and the girl next door uses. Their face tan towel comes wrapped like a condom and is great for travel. They also have one for half body and touch up where you want a kiss of color. No orange hands,no smelly TAN,no skin cancer from baking in the sun. I love love love this product.

I purchased a new roller for the skin…It’s called Micro-needling and will explore and chat more on this in a future blog to come soon.

Blinc Mascara  doesn’t paint the lashes but tubes them with mascara has some awesome colors like purple and blue. They also added an amplified mascara to their lash lineup too. This mascara washes off with luke warm water and a washcloth. No running,no clumping!

I took in a few classes and took lots of notes in my glam notebook!

Not only are their more beauty tools and skin devices, dream creams continue to soar.

This fall it is all about BERRY hues on lips, cheeks and eyes … BOLD and beautiful. Metallics are really in too. Thank goodness the smoky eye is taking a bit of a rest.

Red lips dress to impress with the rest so don’t worry girls you can still wear your signature classic red.

I wanted to shop even more…but because of the hurricane the show floor had less vendors. Florida is still TRYING  to make a comeback.

I have a gift box to give away… How would you like to win it?

Warm and oh so cozy …Spiced Wine

I love to entertain, kiss and cook! This week and or weekend why not whip up this recipe for a warm wine brew?

1 Liter of red wine

A little bit under a  1/2 cup of sugar

4 cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

1 teaspoon of organic honey

Warm all of the above on the stove top. Bring to a bit of a boil, strain  and pour in mugs.

I first tasted this in my travels to Italy…in cool or cold weather or when I entertain this is one of my warm and cozy recipes. Another version can be to add a dash of nutmeg and some lemon or orange peel. Either recipe it is delicious.

It’s a wonderful life! SIP!
