Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday! Well do I have some thing for you today and it’s a word of encouragement that you can take with you into the rest of this week! So get ready!

 

 

Last week I had to be in Los Angeles – and just happened at the last minute to get an invitation to the House of Achi product launch party. Thank you Lola for the invitation!

Makeup University gets invited a lot and I never go – and like Ms Frizzle says “take chances, make mistakes, get messy” – so I did! I went to the party and I’m so glad I did. 

Bites were provided by the Doheny Room and consisted of seared sea bass mini lettuce cups, chicken meat balls in marinara and a mini cheeseburger. Nom nom!

Cocktails were provided by Tyku Sake and Electric Sky wine.

Their was a carnation wall for taking photos with the new style “photo booth” where it’s a mirror like image with a camera in it and the whole surface is active so you can sign your name on the mirror and then it shows up on the photo.

I thought it was going to be a traditional press junket set up for interviews though it was more run and gun guerilla style inside the club atmosphere. So, my apologies for the busy background noise and video that is not well lit. But – close your eyes and listen to the wisdom Kandee imparts to you! It’s so good! If you are hurting right now or feeling discouraged, she has a word for you, just you!

Enjoy the video!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Welcome to another edition of “Work It Out Winesday” and today I’m featuring 2 wines from the Kingman Arizona area.

Stetson Winery is part of a network of vineyards that are all throughout the state of Arizona. It’s a tragedy to see such loss in the Napa, Sonoma and San Francisco fires – so many vines that have been there  for 100 years are now damaged or gone.

Not to fear! Arizona wines are here!  In this video I review a red zinfindel and a pink rose. Enjoy the video!

Here’s details for Stetson Winery
10965 N Moonscape Way,
Kingman, AZ 86401

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday! I love Mondays! Today’s post and video feature the brand elvis+elvin skincare. I tried a charcoal bar for cleansing and a dual activation mask that was really interesting.

This mask though! It comes in two parts and you mix them together in a bowl and then it becomes this super gelatinous consistency that you spread on the skin and let it dry before peeling off. On hind sight, I wish I would have applied this with my mask fan brush.

Watch the video to learn the details and get your own elvis+elvin skincare to help transition from hot sweaty summer skin to dry needs more moisture Fall skin!

Overall, I liked it.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday to you!
Wow, was this ever an action packed weekend with the Mayweather vs McGregor fight, then the MTV VMA’s and my son’s birthday – and the week ahead will be too!I recently started an at home microneedling regime and have switched from my normal skincare to the HealFast brand and there ovasome technology infused cremes.

 

 

 

I’m doing a microneedling treatment twice a week at night and then using the Heal Fast face creme and eye cream. The goal is to  soften and retexturize my sun damaged skin which lately appears leathery and I’m pretty darn sure it’s from all of the sun lately!

 

 

These are the 3 key tools: from left to right – the Heal Fast day creme, then the pink tone is the night creme and then the clear serum is a facial mask for retexturizing skin.

 

 

The eye creme is light and rich and as I was taking a photo to demo it for you I almost dropped my camera and you can see the beginning of a holler!

I also have the Heal Fast egg cream wash and I love how gentle it is but thorough in cleaning off all of  my makeup.  I have a sample of their cellulite cream and I have used it once and liked the light texture, tingly feel and rapid absorption, but I don’t really have cellulite so I’m thinking that is why I regularly forget to use it. More on that later …

You can find these goodies on Amazon here:
Eye cream  http://amzn.to/2wNxNFA
Night cream  http://amzn.to/2wNjjW1
Cream cleanser http://amzn.to/2wjxAXL
Ovasome facial peel  http://amzn.to/2xHtAQ0

The entire reason to use HealFast skincare is their proprietary technology, called Ovasome.

HealFast SkinCare™ is based on a proprietary process called Ovasome
Technology™ . Basically it’s the process of incorporating eggs into
topical skin care products. As simple as it sounds Ovasome Technology™
took years to fully develop. You’re probably thinking, why can’t I just
crack an egg and rub it on my skin? The main reason is because the eggs
molecular structure is too large to penetrate the skin and you would
receive little benefit from this application.
With Ovasome Technology™ we can effectively incorporate whole egg
into topical creams, lotions and serums so all the nutritional content
remains active. By using this technique your skin benefits from over 70
natural vitamins, minerals and proteins.
Ovasome Technology™ is a unique scientific breakthrough and is exclusive to HealFast SkinCare™.

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Hi ya Gorgeous,I am in Arizona, and though it is hot and  feels every bit of  summer, the school year has begun and as   a Mom, the family schedule really revolves around the school year so we are back on a stricter schedule. Sigh.

This summer has been fun and epic with adventures and travel, college courses for my cub and making new friends.

I just received  some samples of the new Arbonne Rescue & Renew products made for rejuvenating   one self in at home spa treatments that are simple to  work into daily life.

First, the Detox Bath Soak. I do not take baths, like ever because it’s a vaginal yeast infection waiting to happen. If you do take baths, enjoy! Or if you are a bath taker and in a hurry, no time for all that tub filling, simply plug that tub up while you are showering and put a shake or two of these salts infused with grapefruit, tangerine, lavender juniper berry, ginger, orange and rosemary.

The water will fill around your feet and give you the aromatherapy on rising steam from a shower. Bada boom bada bing – a quick refreshing!

For the shower, use the Rescue & Renew detox wash infused with orange and grapefruit.  This has a light lather and rinses clean on the skin. It has a fresh and invigorating scent to it.

I like the product and love that Arbonne is vegan, natural, recycles and helps women builds businesses from their homes!  To get Arbonne, you either need to register on the website as a client or find a representative near you to order through.

Finally, I got a box of samples of the Rescue & Renew Detox gelee. Truth. I didn’t know what these were when I opened them.

The back of the box instructions said to apply regularly morning  and evening or after sports, exercise or sun exposure. So I opened a tube up and rubbed it all over my face. Talk about tingly. Really tingly. Don’t get this near your eyes and I definitely do not think that this is an anti-aging treatment to “rescue & renew” signs of aging.  In fact, I think it more of a sport muscle rub?

I like the light gel, and the scent, and after my next  run I will rub some on and see how that works versus trying to use it as a face serum!

Thank you Arbonne for the samples and remember to get yours from your local Arbonne independent consultant! Find one at www.arbonne.com

Hi ya Gorgeous!Today is more than Saturday or Caturday,  it’s National Lipstick Day!

Did you know that  lipstick was not rationed during the war? The Queen of England had a shade made just for  her in a red that matched her robes and sash, it’s called Balmoral after her childhood home in Scotland.

I am a lipgloss lover, though today, we celebrate lipstick. I have some beautiful samples to share with you from several brands.  I love that lipstick can elevate a low mood as well as be the perfect accessory to a power suit or party dress!

 

In this photo from left to right is the Black Opal lip crayon with a super rich matte color. Catrice lipstick is a popular European brand and the coverage is full with a tone of color and moisture. Next is Pacifica, one of the best vegan beauty brands out there!

The Pacifica liquid mineral lipstick is smooth and well wearing on the lip.  I have two colors from Essence Cosmetics in their matt matt matt line, there is a nude beige tone and then a warm mauve tone –  these lipsticks are matte and buttery on the mouth – not drying at all! In the photo, the next lip stain from Alima Pure is new to me and I’m in love with this soft tint with lots of moisture!  It’s perfect for gals going back to school!

Finally in the photo you see the two Lorac Alter Ego lip stains in Activist and Secret Agent. I’m a fan of this brand, and these lip stains pack a powerful long wearing tint that is also moisturizing that doesn’t build up on the mouth.

 

Finally, how do you apply your lipstick? Sure, it’s easy to bullet it on but if you take the extra step of applying with a precision lip brush, like this one from Royal Langnickel in the Moda Metallics collection you will have a longer lasting application with super precise detail to the cupid bows and corners of the mouth.

You should try one and be sure and get a couple, one for your home, purse and work/school space!

Final thought, remember that today, MAC Cosmetics is giving away a free lipstick! Go get one!
