A New Year Resolution

A New Year Resolution

Posted by on Dec 29, 2016 in Special Occasions/ Holidays | 0 comments

I was looking in the mirror yesterday thinking to myself about the New Year coming up. It’ s hard to believe it is 2017! Now I have made many New Year’s Resolutions; some I have fulfilled and others; well let’s just say that I just couldn’t seem to reach the height I intended too. But this year must be different; this year must be reachable and this year needs to be in the positive so much that the ripples it places in my life will become a tsunami on all the negative. I do not know about you but it seems like all the resolutions I made and could not reach had to do with singling one thing out about myself such as lose a few pounds; or quit drinking Mountain Dew. These things just didn’t pan out throughout the year. Sure, it did for a while but by the years’ time I gained my weight back plus a few extra and I quit drinking the soda but then ended up doing the dew all over again. I think we make so many New Year’s Resolutions in one go is why we fail so miserably. But, what if I made a New Year’s Resolution that was so powerful that it could conquer all the failed ones combined by the year end, if I implemented just that one thing. I mean it is possible; if you drop one stone into a lake the ripples keep going and going, right? So why couldn’t one apply one positive to their life and continue the success in multiple areas? I think one broad spectrum that I completely fail in is taking care of me; setting things aside for myself. Dealing with the children, my spouse, work and life in general daily completely takes up my time. By the time the day creeps into night all I want to do is feel the pillow on my cheek. I am sure you know the feeling. It gets so complicated and busy I live my life by a little purple book that say’s “Moms Busy Planner” and if it is not written in my planner it...

One last thing in 2016…

One last thing in 2016…

Posted by on Dec 23, 2016 in Skin Care, Special Occasions/ Holidays | 0 comments

During all the Holiday rush of gift searching; wrapping and deal stampeding we sometimes forget about a close friend that is with us every second of the day. The one that embraces us in the cold and protects from the Big, the Bad, and the Ugly! The one that knows us the deepest and will jump out and take a beaten quick fast and in a hurry to protect us from any ill elements that awaits us! How can we forget something so close right? It’s because we tend to forget that our best friend is not only a living organism but our truest friend. No, it’s not a sister; or brother, or family member or any other person we are aquatinted with; it is even closer than our own mothers. What on earth could be closer than our very own barrier of life? Simple; “Our Skin”; from Superficial to deep or skin protects us and is constant combat for us to keep us from harm or any kind; keeping us well; happy and healthy. We sometimes forget that our skin needs protecting too! When we need rest and TLC; what do you think about your skin? It doesn’t take a nap or a break from protecting us at any time. It is there around the clock; 24/7 and 365 days out of a year! Always Protecting. Always embracing. Always there no matter what! So, if you are sitting there; relaxing and taking a break from all the Holiday Madness; remember there is one thing left to do in 2016; and that is to treat your skin to an exhilarating session of absolute TLC. Take your skin out on a date to your local spa and set an appointment for at least one hour of pure relaxation and rejuvenation for your skin. I mean that’s the least you could do since your skin takes care of you the other 8,759 hours of the year. Don’t worry though because it will still be there for you in that 8,760th hour too! So; GET UP and take your skin to the spa...

3 Awesome Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas for 2016

Posted by on Dec 16, 2016 in Special Occasions/ Holidays | 0 comments

Finding The Perfect Gift Even though Christmas is one of the most exciting Holidays celebrated today; it can still be a little hectic when trying to pick the Best gift. It’s hard to buy for the ones who have everything already. Or the difficult ones that is never satisfied with what they have. Oh, not to mention the not-so appreciative ones that you go their annual yard sale just to see what they are selling your gift for from the Christmas before. I know you know exactly what I am talking about. We all have one type or another that we shop for every Christmas and we all know the feeling of dread when it comes to finding that “Perfect Gift”. Some of us just give up before we start our “Perfect Gift” search and settle with a gift card at the local retail store. But even that is frustrating because even that may not fit our budget and that is literally putting a price on someone. I like to think outside the box when I am searching for the “Perfect Gift” at Christmas. I think about what is completely out of routine that I know they will never get for themselves. We all have a habit of doing for others before ourselves. If you are a parent you know exactly what I am talking about.

This is the thought you place in your mind when search for the “Perfect Christmas Gift”. I have the solution to the money bounding devastating headache concurring gift search. Instead of a physical; and price set money card; why not try buying them a gift certificate for a service that will pamper them. These maybe a little unusual but I guarantee they will be completely appreciated. Here are 3 Awesome Last Minute “Perfect Christmas Gift” Ideas.

Eyelash Extensions and What to Expect

Eyelash Extensions and What to Expect

Posted by on Dec 11, 2016 in Eyelashes | 0 comments

What ARE eye lash extensions? Eye Lash extensions are simply an imitation of your real eyelashes. They are carefully dipped in a non-toxic glue or adhesive and placed to your real individualized lash one by one. There are different types of extensions and lengths. The three most common types of extensions are silk, mink, and synthetic. For the first time; even though it doesn’t sound intriguing; Synthetic might be the better choice in case of an allergic reaction to the Mink or even Silk. This may be an area that you are not sure of the sensitivity of your skin and eyes. It’s better to be safe; then to jump right into Beyoncé (wears mink lashes), and become BeWOW! Is it painful? Of course not; you barely know it is happening. If you tear up with the touch of another around your tear ducts, then you will feel the cool drops running down the sides of your face but other than that you will probably feel the need to sleep. Your lash stylist will take a seat above your head. They will place a pad right below your eyes and wiggled it up against each of your lower lash lines and will most likely tell you to close your eyes. Your Stylist will begin to work and I highly doubt you will be able to even feel them separating each lash with tweezers and gluing the longer lash to yours. This isn’t a wax resulting in pulling unwanted hair out. This is the complete opposite. This is putting thicker, longer hair in. So, the feeling is going to be opposite as well. No pain for this gain so sit back and lashnap! What can and can’t I do with “lash extensions“? After 24-48 depending upon the glue used and it has had time to cure; just simply live life as normal. Using common sense and be delicate around your eyes. When it comes to makeup and skincare, stay away from any oil-based products, such as moisturizers or makeup removers. These based products can break down the adhesive. No waterproof mascara, because it’s removal is a bit harder and can...

Eyelash Extensions or Raccoon City?

Eyelash Extensions or Raccoon City?

Posted by on Dec 11, 2016 in Eyelashes | 0 comments

Did you know that 50% of woman chose Mascara if they could have only one make up product? Being a woman myself I would say I agree. Have you ever heard the term or statement that “One can see into the soul through the windows of one’s eyes”? Maybe this is completely true; I mean we can read joy or fear by considering one’s eyes; even love and compassion; so, if we can see all of this by looking in the eyes of another why couldn’t it be true; right?   Women get this a bit more than men; they have at least a better understanding of it. Think of all the money and countless hours spent on enhancing and highlighting their eyes to draw attentive attraction to themselves. We love make-up but we are always searching for the better lighter more natural enhancements that are not ruthless to our skin. When it comes to Mascara the ultimate, goal is to purchase one that is light; does not mat and makes our lashes seem longer and thicker as we curl them to our preferred state. But sometimes the greatest mascara just doesn’t do our eyes the justice we seek. It can get frustrating to spend hours in front of a mirror and not have the finishing result one wants. After spending all that time most of us just leave it all on when we finally sleep at night and we wake in the morning with the all too well known term of “Raccoon Eyes”. Make-up smeared, and smudged in places that you seriously wonder how it got there; and then you see your “once white” pillow case and then things become clear. Even if you are aware you fell asleep with your make-up on and you see the pillow case first; it just still doesn’t seem to prepare you for what’s next. It just doesn’t help the brain to trigger caution as you walk into the bathroom and look in the mirror; it’s always the same immediate shock of: Who the Hell!? And then calm “Oh that’s me” reaction. You can’t help to think “Only if they would come...
