Mask Monday with Miss Spa Hydrate sheet mask

Hi ya Gorgeous!
I hope you had an awesome Father's Day celebration. Even for those who do not have a good relationship with a natural father figure, you can always go to Abba God and trust that He is a good good father!

I have really enjoyed blogging as much as I have these past weeks that my son has been road trippin' with his Grandparents across the United States. I'm writing this as he is en route to home!


I do have a the "Wine Wednesday" blogged and scheduled for you - and - I have a special event skincare blog post coming up for you, and there are some product reviews coming up also.

Though, for me, it's back to super summer Mom and Cub time! Oh Moms, especially you young moms with your lil bairns still nursing, listen to me, the time goes by so fast. I know. I know. Everyone says that and you are currently so tired beyond belief and there are so many sleepless nights!




But! Trust that it's just for a season and before you know it, you will have a tween who is planning on his 17th birthday party and how I can just put the birthday cake in a ziploc bag and he will eat it on his way to the Air Force Academy.  Whoa. Where does the time go?  I'm making it a greater priority now more than ever to soak in every moment I can with him because the time is short!

So speaking of short time, today is Monday and for me that means "mask" Monday. I have it scheduled on my Google calendar, synced to my phone, and also written in red ink on the desk calendar that I need to mask my skin. I have a plan to mask a minimum of 2 times a week and preferably 3!


I'm using the Miss Spa hydrate sheet mask and it's a must in the super dry, hot, windy Arizona weather! I sit down to read or watch a show and let the mask set, then pull off the paper and massage any serum left on from the mask into my skin and finish with my moisturizer.




 If you need a great mask, try this, I get mine on Amazon or you can find at Ulta Beauty!  Plus...I have seen a section at Walmart that has a wide assortment of facial masks! No excuses! Take good care of you!

Because you are worth it!

Pickle slush from Sonic Drive In - First Impression!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Oh girl - it is so hot here. Like Arizona went from luke warm to 113 over night! I've been in Burbank and it was warm and humid, but doable. Then I went down to Oceanside and it was 68! Cloudy!

Wine Wednesday with Guenoc from Gelson's in Hollywood

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Wednesday! Before I get started on the wine review, a very deep and heartfelt thank you to the men who fought in the battle of Normandy on this day, freedom is not free! Thank you veterans!


I am home for a few days before launching out again - and this wine and photo is from the recent trip to Burbank. Before I got started to work, after a long but easy drive from Arizona to Burbank, I went for a 6 mile uphill hike to the Hollywood sign.


 Oh such a good time! As nerdy as it sounds, I was so overcome by the beauty, the flora, fauna, foliage, animals and people I met a long the trail. I hiked 2 of 3 legs of the Hollyridge trail and oh if only I had more time I would have completed the Mt. Ada and Bronson caves trails too!

Now for the video, this wine, Guenoc was a delightful find to kick off a short Shabbat and rest my aching self from the hike. I really need to work on my fitness more!

Mally Beauty and JustJudyHB - the musings of an actress

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Tuesday! There is a large part of me that can hardly believe that the month is June.

So the weekend was very busy and productive and though I primarily worked on my tv series, Finding Chupa, I also squeezed in a few beauty blogger videos with some samples that MakeupUniversity recently received from Mally Beauty.




I had the pleasure of working with the multi talented actress, host and model, Judy Deaton. She plays Betty Bonfire in Finding Chupa, recounting the time at camp when she knows she encountered the chupacabra.

You can find out more about Finding Chupa at the Facebook page:
http://facebook.com/findingchupa





Today's video I am demonstrating some samples I received from Mally Beauty - when the PR originally reached out about Mallywood, they didn't have any samples so they sent me a mascara which I did not like and is covered in a previous video, then a highlight palette and concealer instead.


 Follow the acting journey of Judy on her socials  @JustJudyHB





Finally, in sad news, today the wonderful, talented, mother, daughter, icon, fashion trend setter Kate Spade died today of suicide by hanging. This is heartbreaking.



There is always hope, even in the darkest of dark places. Please, if you are hurting - reach out now - don't wait - call now.

Guize Face FX and I the Movie featuring Allergy Actress Mary Beth Eversole

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Oh Monday - you are so awesome! Today's blog post features the Guize Face FX palette in Moonlight that I received as a sample. I took it with me to Burbank for an event with AT&T for SHAPE.


It was such a delight to spend time with Mary Beth and here her story of how trauma entered her life and how she began the healing process. Then, she took it a step further to help others who are living and dealing with pain and trauma in their lives by writing a screenplay about her personal experience. Now she is telling the stories of those who have wrote in with their testimony of how trauma entered their lives and looking for solutions to heal.




Wait - before we get into that - if you are new, welcome, if not, welcome back and if you haven't subscribed yet to Makeup University or subscribed to our newsletter, please do!



This video features Allergy Actress, Mary Beth Eversole who was generous with her time and sat for an interview, and a makeup review while I test the palette, which is amazing and worth $40!

Then, to add to the fun - the camera is being run by NerdSoul - your one stop spot on the internet for all hip hop geek culture and trends.



Mary Beth and I talk about her film, I the movie, which is a journey into healing trauma in self and soul. It's currently in it's fundraising stage, so please click this link and donate - every dollar matters and will get this project produced so the healing can begin for those who see it!

Wine Wednesday with Roscato Smooth Blend

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Wednesday!
My entire week feels a bit skewed because of the holiday. Don't get me wrong - I loves me some holiday time but then Tuesday feels like Monday and Wednesday feels like Tuesday and on and on until the week resets at Shabbat.



Today, we are detouring from our normal beauty and skincare, fragrance and hair care blog stories to a wine review.

I like trying something new and I found this on the end cap at my local Walmart.  It's good, and I would buy it again.  Enjoy the video!

Meet Mally Beauty "More is More" mascara - Will It Pass the Travel Pack Test?

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Who is back to work after the long holiday weekend? Remember, you don't need one specific day to thank a veteran. Any time you see someone wearing their military veterans hat, be sure you say thank you. Even though the chances are they served 40 years ago, it will make their day!



Now I am definitely back to work and packing and prepping for a trip to southern California at the end of the week. It's all work and some fun squeezed in too! The goal is to get all the film gear packed, the crew gear packed, the necessary HMU and wardrobe for the cast packed and then...leave some room for me! 



In a sideways twist of fate, I have a big toe injury for 4 weeks ago. I knew it would take a long time to heal, but not this long! It's still severely bruised and looks horrible.  I can not wear heels and I always wear high heels! Or boots! Nope. Not now. This entire trip I will have to continue to wear a flip flop shoe! Something open toed to not press on the big toe!

I will have Instagram updates and beauty blog videos created at the trip posted when I get home.

In the meantime, here is a video review of the Mally Beauty More is More mascara. The PR agency had originally reached out about Mallywood, her new line but did not have samples to send, so they sent me some pieces for her old line.



Ironic that I will literally be in Hollywood and at the studios and instead of creating content with the new Mallywood line, I'll have her old highlight trio to show. So stick around for that.



Now, meet the Mally More is More Mascara! This short video demonstrates going from a bare lash to a More is More mascara covered lash!



I'm a huge fan of Mally and her products, though this one is funky and really blah on the lashes. I went to her website, http://mallybeauty.com to get a link for you, price and product details and it is not listed. I'm deeply concerned I have a left over sample from last year's Christmas party.

Memorial Day - Remember and Honor

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Happy Memorial Day weekend to you!
This day is really important. Like, Fourth of July Independence important in the United States.
Why? What is the significance of this holiday over others?



Because of the sacrifice of life. The saying, "all gave some and some gave all" is so true and we remember on this holiday, the prisoners of war and missing in action as well as those who have died in service to the country. The men and women of the United States military, were doing more than just their job when they went to war.

 They were protecting the freedoms and way of life, the beliefs of a new country and the opportunities that their families would have when their sacrifice resulted in a secure nation.

So, before you enjoy a fabulous barbecue, or if you are on the cruise ship about to hit the buffet, and even in the forest about to rise for coffee from your tent, please take a moment and pray for the families who lost a loved one while in service in the military.

Pray for the safety and security of the USA. Pray for the leadership to have wisdom to lead the country. Pray for those who are active duty military to be blessed and favored of God in their missions. Pray that the loved ones who are hurting from the loss of family to war, are comforted.

Today is a good day to remember the service of our military and then celebrate the good times we enjoy because of it!

Ooh rah!

Rolling Thunder today in Washington DC - a remembrance for POW/MIA

 Hi ya Gorgeous,

Oh my prayer for you is that today, you are enjoying your loved ones, good foods and fun!  Though, as all of the good timin' is going on, please remember the reason why we in the United States, have tomorrow set aside, it's known as Memorial Day.


Memorial Day is a solemn day of remembrance for everyone who has died serving in the American armed forces. The holiday, originally known as Decoration Day, started after the Civil War to honor the Union and Confederate dead.  It has continued to be honored and celebrated as a way to give remembrance and  honor to the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

To everyone riding today in Rolling Thunder, be safe, have fun and most importantly, 
 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

Use the hashtag #ROLLINGTHUNDER on social media to find videos of the ride happening! It's a beautiful thing to see. Ooh rah!

L'Oreal Lash Paradise - First Impression Friday!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
TGIF!
 Who is ready for Memorial Day weekend? Me!  Nope. Not doing a thing. Going anywhere. Nothin' special.Why?


3 reasons. First, my cub is road trippin' with his grandparents. Second, I'm finalizing the million details for the Jael book release and Finding Chupa production. Third, July has so many trips that I've got to keep some cash set aside!  So it's not even a sacrifice to stay home this weekend and I'm really looking forward to the time to get my ducks in a row!





Now, let's get to the video product review of L'Oreal Lash Paradise.





Ok, I have been on the videos a lot lately since I have time off! Woo hoo! If you are new here, please subscribe - if you are not new, welcome back!

I regularly use L'Oreal Voluminous, the grey tube for mascara. I get it at the Walmart, it's $5.97 but this shiny package had me curious! It's $9.97 at my local store - but, I found it on Amazon for $7.79!

Luster Premium White PRO LIGHT Dental Whitening System - live demo video

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday!
How is your month of May going? I can tell you that mine is going by fast! School has been out for two weeks and I have already heard "I'm bored" more than I care to comment.

What happened to the good ol' days of "go play outside" or "go discover something new in your old toys"!



Which brings me to today's live demo video of the newly repackaged Luster Premium White PRO LIGHT Dental Whitening System.

This easy to use 3 piece kit is available at Walmart, online at Amazon and mass retailers nationwide. It really is super easy and you can do more than one application per day if you are cramming in beauty treatments before graduation or your summer wedding.





I received this sample from Luster Premium White, it has a new blue packaging which will look different than their old red packaging if you are looking for it online or in some retail markets.

We tested it live on camera - and honestly, it worked!

This kit is available at Walmart or online at Amazon

Happy Saturday! There is so much going on today - it's the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Queen of England gave them both a new title, Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

As Meghan Markle approached her soon husband to be, Prince Harry whispered to her, "you look amazing, I'm so lucky"!  That is the stuff dreams are made of!

Look anywhere on the internet today and you will see something about today's history making event, a marriage between England and the United States.

Today I have 3 sunscreen options for you from MyChelle skincare that are REEF SAFE.
What is reef safe and why should you care?

Well, if you live on planet Earth and care anything about having a healthy ocean and planet, choosing reef safe products are for you.

The coral reef is an integral part of the ocean and it's very delicate. The avobenzone or oxybenzone chemical ingredient in many sunscreen products is polluting the ocean water and killing off coral.  On average, a coral will grow .3 - 2 centimeters per year. That's essentially a pinky fingernail of growth.
You can learn more about coral by visiting the NOAA website here.

So how can you do your part in saving the world one ocean at a time? By choosing non chemical sun products. This doesn't just go for the ocean, this goes for rivers, lakes, and streams!

A reef safe product will not have the chemical ingredients and will rely on a natural barrier ingredient like zinc to provide sun protection.

I received these 3 samples from MyChelle and I am in love! The tinted stick is my favorite and then the liquid for face and body.

The key to using sunscreen successfully to is apply, reapply and then reapply.  Follow up with a nourishing body balm or lotion after prolonged sun exposure!

Dove exfoliating body polish - available now - perfect for Mother's Day gift giving

Hi ya Gorgeous! 

TGIF!
Woo hoo! School is out for the summer! It's so exciting! Adventure awaits us and we are ready to peel out of here tires squealin' and everything!
Well, sort of.  But first, my birthday celebrations and some Mother's Day gift ideas you can pick up quick at a Walmart or Walgreen's near you!




 Meet Dove exfoliating body polishes! There are 3 scents to choose from and the price range is about $6.  If you have not picked up a gift for your Mom this weekend, this could be a great fit!

 Each of these scents have a creamy slurry of body wash and a fine grit of exfoliant in them.
 After testing all three, I find that the blue tub of "crushed macadamia and rice milk" is the one I like the best with the pomegranate seeds and shea butter being my second favorite. My son loves the kiwi seeds and cool aloe.
 When shopping for these at a Walmart of Walgreen's, pick up a matching body bar, body wash and lotion to match the scrub!

You can use this up to 3-4 times per week and consider keeping a tub of Dove exfoliating body polish by the sink so you can regularly exfoliate your hands! It's a neglected area of anti-aging skin care routines!  Take the same anti-aging skin care on your hands as you do on your face and neck!

Enjoy these new body products from Dove! Happy Mother's Day to you!
