Hi ya Gorgeous!Thank you for joining me! I know I have mentioned previously that I am missing the daily writing though enjoying the process of working on my feature film and now, when it comes to products to review I am super choosy about who and what I work on.  This week’s products are totally amazois and I know you will love them – especially if you enjoy plant based products!

I know many of you are enjoying your spring breaks this week and next- please remember to wear sunscreen!

Now, meet Karite Shea Butter!

Karité’s dermatologist-created products feature natural ingredients
such as high concentrations of raw, unrefined shea butter and palm oil
sourced directly from Ghana, as well as unrefined organic coconut oil.
Using a unique technology to blend these ingredients, Karité is able to
produce non-toxic products for maximum skin hydration and nourishment.

This one-of-a-kind combination of natural botanicals provides
antioxidant, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits that results in
unparalled moisture that soothes and heals even the most sensitive
skin.
Our team is led by a top-ranked dermatologist. Together, our vision is to bring the many benefits of shea butter to you.  Get yours at http://mykarite.com

Now let’s talk hair. I used to have super stick straight smooth hair until I had my son, now I’ve got wavy fuzzy kinda curly hair! If I want straight hair, I have to use a smoothing serum and hot iron, until now!

I just met this brand, Eprouvage and it’s active plant based formula makes for natural hair smoothers in the smoothing shampoo and conditioner.  Get yours at Ulta Beauty locations nationwide in the USA.

 

 

A replenishing and detangling conditioner that
provides hydration to unruly hair. This formula nourishes and hydrates
for sleek, manageable hair. Formulated with our Progressive Plant Cell
Technology for healthier looking hair and scalp.

Benefits

  • Restores hydration and nourishes dry, unruly hair.
  • Gently detangles without weighing hair down.
  • Replenishes moisture and improves manageability.
A smoothing shampoo that gently cleanses while
providing optimal softness and shine. Hair is left feeling healthy and
smooth without weigh down. Formulated with our Progressive Plant Cell
Technology for healthier looking hair and scalp.

Benefits

  • Cleanses hair and scalp while restoring hydration.
  • Tames dry, tired strands for frizz-free, sleek styles.
  • Increases hair’s resistance to breakage.

Ok, before you get into the video, let me just say, that this is the third and final time that I will be recommending the Tim Ferris book Tools of Titans.

It’s available on Amazon now, for $16 and this book is a tool for training yourself to do better in every area of your life from stories of people who have already excelled in those areas! You need this book!

Now, let’s get into this week’s video!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
How you doin’ these days?
I was just thinking to myself, I’m really liking the weekly digest, though I also like being more choosy of the brands I work with since now I have so little space to write – I only say yes to the weird and wonderful. Let that be  a clue to you about what is coming your way!Now, this week,  I am introducing you to LAFCO New York: Luxury Articles & Fragrance Co!  The body creme and hand creme are amazing!

 

These Italian crafted body products are rich, thick, luxurious with a fresh scent and not greasy! There are several fragrances to choose from – I have the Mint Tisane and it’s spring break perfect! Oh. But wait. Not yet. Weird, though my son’s spring break is at the end of April, three weeks before school gets out. Seriously?

Get your own LAFCO online here http://lafco.com

In the video I have what I consider, the most important makeup tip ever! So watch it!

Now, 2017 for me is a year to get back to reading a book a week. It’s doable for me and pushes me to learn something new, strengthen old skills and keep moving forward.

This week I am re-reading Change Agent by Os Hillman. I picked this up at the Hollywood Prayer Network a few years back when I attended a prayer meeting at The Garland in Studio City California. Whoa. The book is great – though for me personally the big take away was that hotel.

It’s so old skool Hollywood glam at the base of Universal Studios. I loved it! They have “dive-in” movies and it’s my dream to take the cast and crew there and screen our film Jael A Western Tale there and then binge watch  the Tremors series while floating in the pool sipping something bubbly! A gal can dream can’t she?

 

Now enjoy the video! Remember to subscribe if you haven’t already!

These body and hand creams retail for $35 and can be found at http://www.lafco.com

Enjoy the teaching tip and please share in the comments how you wash your brushes!

This week’s book read is: Change Agent by Os Hillman
Get it! It’s good!

Thank you for watching!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy March to you! This month is a month of massive movement, change, advancement and then some!I am posting for spring break so you have time to get prepared, though my son’s school doesn’t have break until the end of April and then curiously school gets out 3 weeks later? Which he is counting down the days til he is out!

Today’s digest has an introduction to a new and in my opinion revolutionary hair styling product from Keranique. It’s like the modern day Ron Popeil GLH. If you don’t know what that is, Google it!

I am so in love with this Keranique Tint & Texture Color Density Treatment in dark brown! It sprays on color that will cover grey hair, is light and fluffy in texture, doesn’t wear off and gives hair a thicker appearance. Note, when I ran my fingers through my hair the product did not budge but when I scratched my scalp it did. So don’t do that!

You can find this at Ulta Beauty and it’s $34.00.

The Keranique Lift & Repair Treatment Spray I have used over and over again to help baby my thyroid hair and protect my color while also egging on some additional growth. It has taken nearly a year to grow back enough length on my hair to cut off all of the damage and still have enough length to put a pony tail up.

You can find it at Ulta Beauty for $18.00

Now let’s talk this week’s book! I got this from my Mom because she was going to read it but passed it to me first. Now I have to buy her a new copy because I have already marked up, highlighted, underlined and dog earred this copy!

The Most Excellent Way To Lead by Perry Noble is a most excellent read for any one from moms, to high schoolers, college students and business owners! There is line after line chock full of wisdom!  I highly recommend it!

Finally, with the spring weather and warmer temps, it’s a good time to switch up your fragrance and move into something lighter, more floral, with a hint of green and clean to it!

 

These are two of my favorites and one is from the drug store and one is from the department store! Watch the video to find out more!

Hi ya Gorgeous,The spring breaks are coming faster than expected! Some of you may enjoy a staycation at home and I have a product recommendation to help turn that time at home into a powerful relaxing at home healing spa treatment with products.

OLA Tropical Apothecary products are natural plant based body and spa collections that can be found in the top spas such as The Spa at The Four Seasons Maui.

So far, I’ve been enjoying the products and plan on including them in my at home spa ‘staycation” over spring break!  To help prepare your home, get the OLA Tropical Apothecary reed diffuser to set the tone of your home.  Say Aloha to OLA!

Something to know about getting great rest and being stress free – drink more water, eat some water and get some movement in your body!

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Welcome to the new format for Makeup University for now. Not forever. But for now. I am in the middle of  directing my first feature film ,while launching a mobile app, appearing at two major festivals and publishing a graphic novel.

Oh, all while seeing my Cub through school and life and yada yada.

So, I know that you too are very busy and doing some great things and I am so excited to learn about them so please tell me!

Next, you will find 2-3 thoughts and desires, expressions and chit chats that I have been impacted and feel that they may help you too.

I’ve said for too long that we are a lifestyle blog though I did very little living in the time. Suddenly, life is full force. Like drinking from a fire hydrant. So hang on.  Here we go.
