Meet March Madness Plant Based Products

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.


This one-of-a-kind combination of natural botanicals provides 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.

3 Things To Make This Week Great with Makeup University

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!

Thank you for watching!

How to make thin hair look thick with Keranique: Spring Break edition

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!
