Hi ya Gorgeous!
Whoa! This month! This year! Not complaining though it’s been jam packed and has me going every which way! 

This video gives you a wee update, and then a last minute Mother’s Day gift idea with Dove soaps – which are classic beauty.

 

Finally, meet Humble Brush – omg – I love these and I’m so glad i got a chance to sample and meet this brand. They are doing what we need to be doing in conservation. I never even thought about how much plastic I throw away when it comes to a dozen toothbrushes a year.

Humble Brush has won several awards and continues to make an impact! The hand is biodegradable, the packaging is compostable, the process of the bamboo is sustainable and the bristles are BPA free!

When you buy a Humble Brush – the sale creates a free gift of a toothbrush to a child in need worldwide.  Available on the Humble Brush website or Amazon.
#humblebrush

Finally, I read a book a week and Makeup University has run several book reading clubs and challenges! Summer is here and now is the best time to challenge your children to keep reading over the summer months!

I recently read The Road Back To You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. It’s about the “enneagram” and how you find a number that correlates to your personality and ways to enhance yourself or heal yourself. It is a slow starter – but stick with it – it finishes strong! From the Amazon description: The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny
accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and
negatively.

Now let’s watch the video!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
The Mother’s Day weekend a’la my birthday weekend is upon us! True, it’s Thursday and perhaps a bit early – but no worries – there is still plenty of time to kick start the party!I’m doin’ up my do with the L’Anza Keratin Healing Oil Lustrous Finishing Spray and L’Anza Healing Style Dry Texture Spray in  a two step style to go from day to night.

The day time luncheon event I am wearing my hair down and then for the evening I am doing a half updo with messy braids.

The L’Anza dry texture spray gives some “grit” or grip to the hair which makes the braids hold better when I pull the hairs to make them wide.

The L’Anza healing oil gives the lightest sheen and nourishing oil to the hair while fighting frizz and fuzz out from humidity.  My desert home doesn’t really have humidity though when the party moves down to the river for a concert – I’m going to want humidity help!

I’ve been a fan of L’Anza since college, the first time when  I had bleached my hair to there and back! The L’Anza shampoo and conditioner helped my fried hair not look so fried!

Here’s a bit more about L’Anza – oh, and remember, get some from your local Ulta Beauty or off Amazon today! It’s a perfect gift for you or your momma!

P.S.  Stay tuned to my Instagram or Twitter for the styles of the birthday party!

FROM TREATMENT TO HEALING

L’ANZA was introduced to the beauty industry as one of the first
professional haircare brands specifically designed to address individual
hair needs. Using the proprietary Keratin Bond System,
L’ANZA was able to target the causes of hair damage, not just the
symptoms. L’ANZA built upon this tradition of keratin, incorporating the
latest in haircare ingredient technology, as well as wild-crafted and
sustainable planted-based ingredients, creating the Keratin Healing System
(KHS). With the power of Keratin Amino Acids, Healing Actives, and
Triple UV Protection (UVA, UVB, UVC), Nano Science 10² delivery system,
sulfate-free and sodium chloride-free Shampoos, KHS has become the
foundation for all L’ANZA products.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Who loves swimsuit season? Who loves bikini time? Not me. Not me in the slightest. I love summer and all of the opportunities to be outside in the pool, to stand up paddle board and not be in a wetsuit, ocean swimming and some serious snorkeling!Before you dread the season, don’t buy anything to swim in and sit in the deck chair instead of getting into the pool because you hate how you look in a bathing suit – wait. Read below. I have some tips on how to pick a great suit to feel confident in even if you don’t have a body that looks like what mainstream media and magazines airbrush and sell to us!

 

The secret is, getting separate pieces – the size you need for the body part that needs it! I got mine from Sunsets Separates.

I need a larger top than I do bottom and I got that easily with Sunset Separates!

My number one tip for selecting a swimsuit is know the use you are going to do in it! Teeny string bikinis are not the best for ocean snorkeling because a wave can whip it off your body in one fell swoop!

Gals with a fuller bust or bottom, you need something with support and double stitching!

Darker colors do make you look slimmer, if you care about that – and I personally took a big jumbo risk by finally, not getting a plain black swimsuit! I got all of these fun colors and print too!

It’s more important to get in the water and play with the family and enjoy the moment rather than sit out because you don’t want to be seen in a swim suit.  Go get ’em girls!

Now, an exhaustive bathing suit guide can be found here, check it if you need to!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Today, Coachella wraps up another year of music and art. Kendrick Lamar and Lorde are on today’s line up.  I went to the first year that Coachella was created and have not been back yet. I really appreciate the free passes shared to attend, though I think the event is a bit much for my son to attend at this age. I’m thinking next year, the 13 year old will appreciate the event and perhaps we will go.For those of you who are there now, I hope you have planned your after care for the post Coachella effect.
The highs of the event are so high! There is so much stimulation to all of your senses from the sound and sights, smells and tastes.  So here’s a bit of help to get you acclimated to everyday life after you leave.Hydrate inside and out!  Now is a good time to add an electrolyte drink to your next 48 hours.
For skin, try the new Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask with raw coconut sugar. It’s paraben, phthalate, mineral oil, sulfate, gluten and dye free. Nothing but hydrating goodness in this mask and a great way to quench the thirst of your parched skin!

After the mask, which you can also use on hands or anywhere that your body has dry skin – apply the Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer. It’s formulated with ethically and sustainable sourced ingredients.  The bottle says 24 hour moisture, though I would reapply as needed.

It’s a super light weight formula but packs a punch of hydration to it!

For your hair and scalp, heal the desert sun damage with the Palmer’s Coconut Oil – it is marked for a facial oil, though this can be applied anywhere on the body, scalp and hair included!

This Cocnut Oil is a blend of extra virgin coconut oil, tahitian monoi oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil, maracuja oil, sunflower oil, apricot oil and sesame oil.  The smell is delicious and the oil is nourishing! Your dry braided tight hair with the glitter roots will drink this up!

Put a dropper full of oil in your palm, rub them together and then smooth over your hair and work from the ends to the scalp!  Let it sit for a as long as possible before washing out.

 

This cleansing balm that is new from Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula reminds me so much of the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm. It melts into your skin and gives a good deep clean but gently. This product thoroughly removed long wearing foundation and long wearing mascara. If that sounds like your Coachella weekend makeup, get some of this to help remove the desert dirt from your skin.

After all of the hydration of your skin, inside and out, you will feel refreshed and ready to reflect on the memories you made during Coachella.

You never know, I just may see you out there next year!

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!

such as high concentrations of raw, unrefined shea butter and palm oil
sourced directly from Ghana, as well as unrefined organic coconut oil.

skin.

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.

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!

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!
