Today on TV I’m sharing some unique and fun ideas for gift ideas just for the man or men in your life. Husband,boyfriend,son,grandpa or”bestie” guy.

Some I have given to my husband and some ideas are so imely for today!

The thing is we often think we need those gifts to be LARGE in size and price! And designer brand names too! But I have learned that’s not always necessary. With a little age comes wisdom. The holidays don’t have to be so stressful. It isn’t even our Birthday!!! (YOU know the TRUE meaning of the Christmas season)

Sometimes the most awesome gifts are from your heart and with a little reflection and thought when it comes to that special someone!

Peter Max kissed me!

Peter WJXT4

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…

Ready,Set,Pack!

nail mini

Are you traveling out of town or just a mini staycation for overnight.
It is so important to pack your summer beauty right! Don’t take everything but the kitchen sink.Keep it simple but take what you want and need.

Here are some of my packing secrets to a lighter beauty bag and without the stress.

First downsize your containers! Don’t take the large hair styling gel,the biggest hand cream or the largest face cream you have.Buy mini travel containers,fill them with your creams,scrubs,face wash etc.
Travel with only the product amount you need for the time you are going to be gone away.

Next put down that large perfume spray bottle or splash. Maybe it is time you tried sleek roll on perfume bottles or take those samples your fave cosmetic counter has given you. Not only will the airline take that bottle you adore.They will take it away FOREVER if you bring it in your carry on or purse…you really don’t need the big bottle.

Sample and mini me sizes work wonders.
They are such a breeze to use and travel with. Take any samples or mini sizes with you in a baggie and USE them! So much lighter and easier.

Scale down that toothpaste tube,shave cream and hairspray too!

Fill your vitamins or any other supplements in a mini vitamin envelope especially made for them. Or put them in a pill pack for on the go.

Go to the one and only channel 4 http://www.news4jax.com for a peek at my segment on TV today.Click on the Morning Show. Next type in Noreen Young in search bar.

Happy Travels,keep a travel journal/diary and TAKE TIME to smell the flowers along the way!

TAN like the celebrities do!

tan on the go cartoon girl

I love easy. I love not sweating on the beach, say no to lobster face and I love a golden glow sometimes!
But as a skin therapist and beauty expert it is a no no to BAKE like banana nut bread.
So, I love the healthier alternative for tanning beauty.The latest trends in summer skin are pretty much classic either by tanning towels, lotions or the creme de la creme of self tanning like they do on Dancing with the Stars…an air brushed spray tan.

MOST celebrities do it as their beauty secret before they walk down any red carpet…you can too.
Google away and find someone in your city.

Jimmy Coco is the spray tan king in Hollywood.But if you can’t get to LA I have found the man in Jacksonville! TAN on the Go Mobile who comes to your door.A handsome man with a tan or one of his team can make your tan skin dreams come true.
Cost $45.00 and up in the Jacksonville, Florida area for a healthy looking buff body tan.I know you all don’t live in this area but you can find someone in your neighborhood to give you a faux glow too. Takes about 4 to 5 mins. for them to apply it and it lasts about a week on your skin.Call Mark at 904-537-7387 for your Buy two get one free mobile tanning services as mentioned on channel 4 today. Offer expires soon.

NOT for ladies only…Guys will love it too!

A better way to wrinkle less and a way to make your body look more toned,well rested light golden complexion,cover spider veins,red splotches,vericose veins and body blemishes.A spray tan hides a multiple of sins that you may not like about your body without going to confession.

Say “Hello to Gorgeous and Handsome!”
Get out your sunglasses,tan smart and safely and ready to flaunt the star you are. It is that time of year again…sweet sunny summer time!

How To Create a Place for Relaxation & …

10-26-2013 Kumasi & NOREEN PHOTO -1Get a good night’s sleep!

Today on TV I will share some easy inexpensive and effective ways to create calm when ALL the crazy and beautiful holidays are coming.

My Top Ten List

Select a cozy lounge chair,beautiful lamp and blanket to wrap yourself in.

A zen like statue,subliminal signs like ones that say “RELAX,A day at the Beach,Love,Peace”

Candles battery operated or the real thing.

Salt Lamps good for your health and mood.Just looking at them in your room lit up makes you feel a sense of calm.

Fresh flowers, herbs or orchid plant to purify the air and to go to sleep by.

Spray the room with aromatic room spray scents like lavender & vanilla. The Febreeze brand has come out with a new sleep spray scent.http://www.febreeze.com

Sleep on pillow cases,sheets and blankets that are NOT wild patterns or colors.I love the beautiful spiritual sayings on the pillow cases by http://www.irestmycaseinc.com You may browse and shop them at etsy.com/shop/irestmycaseinc

Tired Eyes,Allergy Eyes or Migraine eyes call for COOL eye mini eye masks just like the DAY SPAS use.

Sleep masks DO WORK and get you in the mood.I love the ones by http://www.marygreen.com

Sipping chamomile tea or warm milk work wonders.

Listen to music like they play at the spas. My fave artists and CD’s are David Young Bliss or Solace and George Skaroulis Sanctuary. You’ve gotta own at least one of these.

Apply a LUXURIOUS lotion that makes you feel good or an herb type towelette that assures relaxation like http://www.herbenessentials.com

I LOVE to surround myself with things that make me happy.

ALL of the above will put you in the mood for REST and a catch some ZZZZZ’s. Share with me what works for you! I always LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

I hope they help you and give you the beauty rest you WILL need!!

Garlic Nail Polish!

images GARLICD.I.Y Nail Strengthener
This is a recipe I showed on TV last week on http://www.news4jax.com
Thanks for asking for me to POST the actual recipe FOR YOU to whip up in your kitchen!!!

My clients and celebrity clients are always telling me about their nails getting brittle,peeling or they break fast. Frustrating I know it even happens to me sometimes.

Here is my recipe for stronger healthier looking nails on the natural side and cheap!

What you will need is:

1 bottle of $1.00 Store clear nail polish
1 fresh clove of garlic

Peel & chop the garlic in approximately six mini chunks like pieces. Place inside the nail polish. You may want to pour a little of the nail polish in the garbage so the chunks will not make it over flow. If it does not overflow, that is fine too.

Shake the bottle and leave in dry, cool place for about six days or so. Nine days is fine.
The nail techs say it really works and is cheaper than a store bought brand and a natural fix too.

Neither YOU nor your nails will smell like garlic and it is cheap and eco-chic to use.

I have it on right now…Give it a whirl!
Great for guys too!

Nailed it so can you!
