The Beautiful

Healthy beauty and fashion feng shui enhances your image and your body. Inner beauty radiates when you remove the toxic chemicals and dress to shine! Your personal style is key to who you are as a person, whether that means wearing pajamas or being a total fashionista. Beauty and fashion are more than on the surface- they are a reflection of what you love and how you feel about yourself.

Lip color can be challenging if you live a running-around-town lifestyle like I do where a pink or red lipstick wears off in a less than hour and then… I just forget.  And look kind of washed out.  And then lose faith that I can wear color on my lips.

But its lips that can brighten and wake up and put an exclamation point on style and smiles!

Pumpkins are so lovely!   Pie, Thanksgiving, Fall… the best part of the season.  In addition to being lucky for some people (really, some people find pumpkins to be lucky!),  pumpkin happens to be great for your skin!

Beyond eating pumpkin (*something I love!) it is an amazing natural skin remedy!  Pumpkin is filled with enzymes and acids that help to smooth your skin and get it glowing.  Plus, there are tons of antioxidants in pumpkin that feed your skin with cell-supporting nutrients to help repair daily environmental stresses.   What I found most interesting to learn recently is that pumpkin’s molecular structure is small, which means it can pentetrate more easily into your skin than some other substances, making pumpkin a really super-charged natural skin solution!!!

Needless to say, when celebrity makeup artist and balanced beauty expert Chantal Moore shared a Pumpkin & Cocoa face mask I was deliciously intrigued… and so excited!   Continue Reading…

chocolate whipped body butter

This is a delightful cocoction borne of years of wondering how to use the very solid and deliciously chocolatey cold-pressed cocoa butter I bought at the health food store. It actually started when I ordered raw shea butter thinking I was being very avante garde a few years back.  The raw shea similarly arrived in a great big hunk that nothing could break.

Eureka! Continue Reading…
