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

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

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 GorgeousWhoa – how about that Walking Dead episode? I still. Nope. Still can’t believe it!

What I do believe is that this is quite possibly the best answer to long wearing foundations combined with baking a powder on top of it and then multiple layers of contour, highlight and bronzer plus eyeshadows and eyeliner with mascara: Micellar Water from La Roche Posay.

This brand is so good! It’s so popular in Europe and the rest of the world though in the United States it is slowly becoming a beauty fan favorite.

Why? Because it’s effective while being gentle and not containing parabens. Expect it to be in the $20 or under range.


Check it out:

You can find it at CVS and Ulta Beauty or online. You are supposed to use it with cotton balls, but in my life, I don’t have time for that. I use it on a wash cloth.

Now it says that you don’t need rinsing. That is so French skincare to not need rinsing. You know why? Because there in the flats of Paris and surrounding French cities, they did not have access to water as easily and the plumbing isn’t always consistent, so the ladies of olde had to use creams to remove their makeups and the tradition just stuck.

Here is from the brand:
leanses down to pollution particles. Removes what you see and even what you can’t see.


  • Dirt-encapsulating micelles cleanse skin from dirt, oil, makeup, and even pollution particles
  • Gentle and refreshing water-like formula that’s mildly scented
  • Use as a daily no-rinse cleanser, makeup remover, and/or toner

Micellar Water is a no rinse cleansing water for all skin types

Dirt-encapsulating micelles
Naturally lift dirt, oil, makeup, and pollution upon contact with the skin and no harsh rubbing necessary.

A mild cleanser so gentle it is used in contact lens solution

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water
Antioxidant-rich water to soothe skin

Micellar waters are no rinse cleansers that take their name from
micelles, the microscopic cleansing agents that are used in their
formulas. These micelles have a lipophilic core that attract oil and

When micelles interact with the skin, they naturally lift dirt, oil,
makeup, and even pollution on contact with no harsh rubbing necessary.

Makeup and impurities are trapped in the micelles oil absorbing core and
are dissolved from the skin leaving it perfectly cleansed, hydrated and
refreshed. No rinse necessary.

Hi ya Gorgeous,
UPDATE: This can be purchased at stores  and the company is working on being carried in mass retailers such as Ulta Beauty and Amazon!  I love this product!

So today and leading into the weekend, the hair is going to one of two ways: either I am going to use the sample of the BIOKAP Nutricolor Delicato in 5.0 brown that has been sent to Makeup University or I am going to be a hair model in Phoenix and come out a shade of metallic blue.

I wear my hair dark in the winter and with highlights for a warmer tone in the summer. It’s time to go dark again and if I don’t end up as a hair model – more on that later…I am going to use this kit for home which is a natural and healthy hair color that is not a henna.

I am still in the process of babying and taking super delicate care of my hair to help it heal from a bad bout of thyroid issues several months back. I need to give it one more good short cut to finish cutting off all of the damage and then I may just stop coloring it all together! At this point, I’m just glad I still have hair on my head!

So why the hair model? I feel like I need to push my self a bit more and get out of my wee  comfort zone that I’ve been in, like a cocoon these past few months and doing something possibly stupid with my hair seems like a good stretch.

My Instagram will follow that journey along if it happens. Instagram, @CherelynnBaker.

Now let’s talk details about BIOKAP:

Biokap Nutricolor Delicato+ Hair Dye is the most
delicate formulation in the BioKap Nutricolor line, available in 4
shades, without any Phenylenediamine. Its exclusive formula with
vegetable ingredients and high skin tolerability nourishes and repairs
the hair while dyeing it and covers grey hair perfectly. With
TRICOREPAIR complex containing Rice proteins, Willow derivatives and
fruit lipophilic acids. Enriched with Argan oil from organic farming, it
nourishes the hair and makes it softer and shinier.

When to use it

To cover grey hair perfectly, already from the first application and for a long-lasting colour.

How to use it

From today, using Biokap Nutricolor colours is even more practical:
just insert the Nutrifix bottle in the hole outlined on the back of the
packet and wear the disposable protective cape supplied. Then mix the
content of the colour tube following the instructions given in the
leaflet. Choose the shade according to the quantity of grey hair,
following the instructions on the packet.

What it contains

Contains TRICOREPAIR, a complex with rice proteins with a
restructuring action, Willow derivative with colour protective action
and fruit lipophilic acids that take care of the scalp during the
application of the dye. Thanks to the high content of unsaturated fatty
acids and vitamin E, Argan oil protects, restructures and makes fragile
and brittle hair shiny.


4 shades without Ammonia, without Resorcin, without Paraben, without
Fragrance, without Paraphenylenediamine nor Phenylenediamines. Nickel
and Dermatologically tested.
Before using the product, carefully
read the instructions on the package. Always perform a sensitivity test
48 hours before each application.
The 4 new colours of Biokap Nutricolor Delicato+ must not be
mixed neither among them nor with the other Nutricolor and Nutricolor
Delicato colours.

Holiday time is here and now is a good time to add some additional sales and promotions to your business and bottom line by working with Viziad.


What’s Viziad?  It’s peer to peer advertising. It’s simple to use and a cost effective way to increase your brand exposure for buyers.


For a seller, it’s a way to add extra income to your bottom line while making use of an everyday space in your life.

VIZIAD is The Peer To Peer Ad Network™, meaning anyone can sell advertising space to anyone else.

On Viziad, you can act as a buyer, a seller or both!

1. First, a seller decides what kind of advertising they want to sell. It can be a billboard that he or she owns, some space on the menu at their restaurant, a post on their social media account or any other place they own (we call these “Ad Spaces”).

2. Then, the seller creates a listing for their ad space on Viziad. The listing can include the location of the ad space (or list it as “Digital” for online or media space), pictures and videos of the ad space, an outline of what data or proof will be provided to the buyer so he or she can see the evidence and results of the seller’s work and more.

3. When a buyer see’s an ad space on Viziad they want to purchase, they simply click “Buy Now”

4. The Seller will receive a notice of who wants to buy the ad space. They can ask any follow-up questions and then approve or deny the sale.

5. The payment is held in escrow until the Buyer and Seller agree the ad space has been properly delivered.

The Seller easily sells their ad space and the buyer gets a great deal on advertising. That’s it!
