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!
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!
TGIF!
Whoa. Okay. I can explain. No need for excuses. Though here it goes. In the beginning of 2017, I said I would only be posting on Monday due to my busy schedule with my feature film, Jael A Western Tale.  I am finished with the script, there are still a few roles to cast and then, the forever list of details that need to be managed and completed to get us to production!
You can learn more about it on it’s Facebook page here: http://facebook.com/jaelawesterntaleThis week, the focus is on the Influenster Vox Box from Lancome. Oh such sweet goodies!

I received these products for free as a gift to review and give my honest opinion. I can honestly say that I don’t really like the liquid form of the foundation but this stick is a dream! It’s a semi matte finish and dries down powdery without caking in face creases. Bonus! Then the concealer is thicker than my normal  brand but for those who need more coverage, I think you will enjoy the consistency, coverage and wear time! Which is long! I’m amazed by the click highlighter pen which when you click the button on the end it oozes out a bit of rose and gold shimmer liquid which more like a veil wash of color and highlight than an actual highlight powder or cream. I used it all over my face!  Finally, the lip gloss is light and can be work alone, over a lipstick or lip liner. It’s so versatile and perfect for your spring and summer looks! So like Lancome says, Don’t Glow It Alone!

Get yours at a Lancome counter near you or visit http://lancome.com

So part of my current over whelm is that while I am watching my feature film slowly … oh … so…slowly make it’s way to production, I did a documentary in the mean time. It was like taking a job on top of a job!

It’s completed and finishing up it’s distribution deal now, funny, how it’s easier to place a true story versus a fiction one!

This photo shows Purequosa. Otherwise known as  a stinky gal who swears she is not a germaphobes new best friend!

I received a sample from them to test and it came at the best time ever! I was en route from one NASCAR race in Las Vegas to another in Phoenix and it went from hot to hotter. This colloidal silver spray with essential oils is amazing! I used it on the surface of some places, in the air in others, on my skin and in my mouth for a freshening up!

It’s available on Amazon right now – and if you have kids, pets, relatives, a house, a car, armpits and yuck mouth – you need this! Your spring break will thank you!

Finally, my favorite segment, “What Are You Reading” this week!  I’m re-reading the #BeMore book by Sandi Krakowski.  I love it’s bite sized nuggets of inspiration and wisdom. Get yours on Amazon today! http://amzn.to/2nJjKeh

Okay, now let’s watch t his week’s video!

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.

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.

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!

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!
TGIF! Happy Friyay and say hello to the weekend and some much needed shabbat!

 

Which highlighter do you like best? Do you think they look the same?

 

I
think the essence cosmetics pure nude highlighter in 10 be my highlight
is a perfect dupe for the MAC Cosmetics Trip the Light Fantastic powder
in Lunar Luster.

You can find essence cosmetics products online at their main website, Amazon or Ulta Beauty stores nationwide.

MAC Cosmetics are sold online, and in some department stores as well as stand alone brick and mortar stores. If you are a Star Trek fan, you will want to get at least one of the makeup pieces in the collection.
