10 Ways to Brighten Up Your Day!

About now between the catastrophic ๐ŸŒ news on TV and horrific views this week along with COVID still with us. I still canโ€™t believe this is happening. I too am feeling a little blue. How about you?

Letโ€™s not allow the negativity and sadness to takeover our life. Our mental health depends on it. So, we need to listen out and hear something good and do something good for (ourselves) YOURSELF.

Light a candle! Burn some sage or aromatic incense! Meditate! Pray! ๐Ÿ™

Incense smells good & purifies your space!

Do a few face and body exercises. Kiss that facial stress away!

Try a little yoga or stretching exercises. If the sun is shining your way enjoy its warmth on your face and body.

Keep movingโ€ฆ stretch,go walk or ride a bike.

When you get out today or get out today and buy yourself something. Anything. It could simply be a $1.00 item from the dollar store. Go find a bargain!

Just treat yourself to something NEW.

Get out of the house and not just shop online!

Get an old fashioned ๐Ÿฆ ice cream,gelato, mochi or popsicles at your fave place. I miss the ice cream trucks that drove thru the neighborhood and sold all kinds of ice cream delights!

Call a friend or family member spread some โค๏ธ love.

Write a letter or send a few cards out to people you love and that that you miss across the country!

Sit down and write โœ๏ธ away and send love the old fashioned way!

Book an appointment for a massage! It may be last minute but you never know they might just have an opening for you!

Guys you need a massage too! My husband and I go for one monthly. FEELs so good!

Get a mani or pedi or polish change.

Treat Yourself!!

Visit a juice shop! You know where they make it fresh squeezed! So good for you and nothing like fresh fruit or veggie juice!

Be good to yourself today. Itโ€™s been a tough week for the world!

Even though it may be hard to smile todayโ€ฆ

Be good to yourself!

Travel and Explore!

I just spent an amazing time in Arizona! One of my stays was at the JW Marriott Star โญ๏ธ Pass Resort & Spa. It is an amazzzing place! And the spa was beautiful too.ย 

It was so refreshing to be back to Arizona again! The history and the food with a bit of heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ some things more spicy ๐ŸŒถ than others. It is an awesome place to visit.

The highlights from my trip were visiting the city of De Tubac where arts and history and foodies are alive and kicking. I happened to be there when they had a festival going on. So many creatives in one place!

My fav’ place to eat was at Elvira’s. So delicious and the wait staff was awesome. The restaurant was Eye ๐Ÿ‘ candy in itself. All the color from the moment you arrive. The art ๐Ÿ–ผ and even using the powder room was a religious experience.

Connected to this place is a fabulous decor & gift shop! From angels, to hearts to art to glassware. I found a hand blown heart โค๏ธ piece I had to have. I’m going to place it in a gold ribbon and hang it from one of my chandeliers. I used to buy mugs, pot holders and tea towels when visiting places. Now when I travel I got smarter! I buy things that make me ๐Ÿ˜Š happy and that decor adorns my home or office. A daily reminder of my wonderful trips!

Also in this town there was a fabulous kitchen store Tumacookery I could have shopped there ALL day. If you’re a foodie or chef. What a fabulous and fun place!

Everywhere you travel ๐ŸŒต cactus of all kinds follow you. And they have skin care and cocktails ๐Ÿน and other edible cacti treats too! The weather was amazing! ๐ŸŒž

The people were charming and the sunsets were breathtaking! As I always say…explore beyond your door. Life is even more wonderful if you just get out the door and travel.

Have you ever been? Share with me.

Always in my Heart!

World Down Syndrome DayNoreen_twinsit is a very very SPECIAL day.

I miss your smile,your soft hands around me and the kind and wonderful guy you were! Always in my heart and never apart.

Love makes the world a better place for you and me!

The greatest shows on earth!

photoNYCI have packed my all things beauty bags and am ready for my business trip to NEW YORK. Life is good when you are asked to lecture at beauty shows all over the country.
I am sorry I have not had much time to post. I have been up to my pink lips with work and getting beautified to look good at the show. The only thing bad about guest speaking or attending a beauty show is…you HAVE TO look your best. People will notice if your hair is not freshly cut, your skin is looking dull or your makeup is last years look. This is even more important for Educators/makeup artists like me.

Every Spring New York City gets even prettier when beauty professionals and beauty business owners from all over the world attend the IBS and IECSC shows New York Shows.
If you’re anybody in beauty and care enough about your business …you go! It only happens once a year and it is simply fabulous!

I’ll give you a peek on the show floor daily and share with you what’s new in beauty too! I’ll tell you about classes I myself attend and share with you new makeup,hair and nail trends.

NEW YORK and Beauty in the City it is going to be a beauty filled time.
