New Year New You | Time to Cleanse and Work On Your Health

Hi ya Gorgeous!
And...one day...left in 2018.


Holy smokes.  This year though.
I'm glad it's done.
It was in no way shape or form as harsh as 2017 though I'm still glad to be entering into the new season of 2019.



It's a side ways celebration for me because I ring in the new year on the Hebraic calendar, so technically for me, 5779 is 5 months in and now the Gregorian calendar is about to start.

No matter. I'm ready to celebrate no matter what! Speaking of celebrations - I've already begun my "new year new you" with some daily juicing to help rehydrate at a cellular level, add more fiber and boost my immune system as I prepare for a very busy season ahead to which I say, bring it on!




I use apple, celery and garlic for my 3 times a day juice - what's your favorite recipe for juice? Comment below! Now - cheers to you getting a jump start on a heart on a healthy new year! I love my Vitamix for making clean juices, you can get one here: https://amzn.to/2BLsYg2

How To Make Positive Christmas Memories That Last

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Tuesday!
It's a whirlwind of fun, celebration, volunteering and preparing for some upcoming Christmas travel for snowboarding and ice skating!


Thank goodness for the physical activities because around here, it's been all treats,cookies, and fancy froo froo coffees and cocktails. In short, the calories are abundant! I need some extra movement!

Which brings me to today's blog and video topic - I encourage you to take a moment and plan some family memory making activities so the focus is on engaging with each other in a meaningful way versus just zeroing in on a store bought gift.

Ideas such as:
1. Taking a family walk to "eye spy" a Christmas item
2. Walking/bicycling/driving a neighborhood for lights
3. Christmas cookie bake off and then trade doing an old fashioned cake walk with music
4. Go caroling to a neighbor and bring some of those cookies to gift
5. Hand make cards for one another using items in the house then share with a quick message of what you appreciate about that person

There are so many ways to make a memory without spending a lot



Thank you for tuning in today! If it's your first time here, welcome! If you are returning, welcome back! This video is a short word of encouragement to help you focus on what's good that's going on in a busy holiday season. From me to you - a very merry Christmas! Now go make some great memories!

Holiday Sets for the Perfume Lover Are Here! | Wild Spirit Fragrances Holiday Collection

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
December is quickly moving to the middle of the month and this Saturday is the second busiest shopping day of the year because it's the one before Christmas!

Ha!
I finally have all of my shopping done and I'm lovin' the surprises that I have in store for my cub.
Now some gifts for me! I am a fragrance lover! I usually wear a few different scents in a single day! Morning - noon - night, either relaxing or spicy for going out.  How about you?




Now something to know - not all fragrances are created equal. These days, so many of the scents you buy are synthetic and contain some naughty ingredients. Though, I met this brand back in the spring and I'm super in love with their commitment to a healthy scent, it's ability to be layered and their brand respect for the environment. Essentially - you have got to get this for yourself and a friend, a loved one and maybe even someone on your naughty list to help sweeten them up!



To add to the fun and enjoyment, this high end fragrance is easily available at Walmart stores and Walmart.com and the Christmas gift pack has a little bit of everything for you plus a sneak peek at the new rose fragrance coming out in spring 2019.  What are you waiting for ! Get to gettin' the good stuff from Wild Spirit Fragrances!  The video is from the set the brand sent me months ago with the sneak peek into what was coming for holiday and then these photos are from today in my local Walmart. 





Thanks for watching! If you could, would you take a moment and subscribe with a bell ding please? Thanks! You may think it's too early for a holiday post - but no - actually it's not. Why you say? Because the clock is ticking! The days from here on to the first week of January are going to go by fast and fill up - so, start on that shopping list!

Now, this brand is a new best favorite of mine. It's a healthy fragrance with no funky stuff in it, like phtalates and parabens! It is made in the USA and easily available at Walmart and Walmart.com The base of these scents are essential oils. You can wear one, or mix and match. Fragrance is the ultimate accessory! This video shows you the upcoming holiday gift package that is going to be in stores soon.



So watch the video and then get ready to find in stores!

What is Pearl Harbor Day?

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Happy Friday to you! I'm so ready for the weekend and then some.  Before all of that Christmas and Hanukkah celebration goes into full speed, here is a quick look back on today, and it's infamy in history.  Today, is Pearl Harbor day and we remember it in the United States with respect to the soldiers lost and the beginning of a war with flags at half mast.


What is Pearl Harbor Day?

Pearl Harbor Day, also known as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, is an annual observance of the lives lost in the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. 
When Bill Clinton was President, he  declared Dec. 7, 1994, as the first National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day for the United States. This is a tremendous respect for the military and families of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives that day.

It is not a federal holiday with paid time off. Though the American flag is flown at half-staff until the sun sets in honor of those who died as a result of the surprise attack.


This was a catastrophic day and recently one family, finally had closure on the event. This is an excerpt from an article on CNN.com today:

"The Dorr family had been waiting for Carl to come home from the Navy for 77 years. This week, he finally did.
About 15 relatives on Wednesday walked onto the tarmac of South Carolina's Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. They watched as a flag-draped coffin was lowered from the plane into a hearse.
"There was nothing but dead silence," Carl's 70-year-old nephew, Thomas Dorr, who lives in St. Johns, Florida, told CNN. "I knew that what I was experiencing was history."
 
 
Carl David Dorr, one of the 429 sailors and Marines killed on board the USS Oklahoma when it was sunk in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, will be laid to rest on Friday -- the attack's anniversary.



Join me in a YouTube live session today at 12:30 MST as I share my personal family history with this day.  http://youtube.com/makeupuniversity

President Trump and First Lady Trump at funeral for President Bush


Today in other news, is also a day of mourning and remembrance for the 41st president of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush.  If you waited til today to mail your Christmas cards, well, they are going to wait til tomorrow because in the United States, all federal and state government are closed today in remembrance.  This has not happened in the United States since the passing of Gerald Ford and that was in December 2006.  Truly, one era has ended and another has begun!

Best Gift for the Home Chef in Your Life - Meet Egglettes

 Hi ya Gorgeous!

I'm down to the final few gifts that I need to get and today's post, actually, this gift was given to me.
I do enjoy a kitchen gadget and collagen is a beauty item so technically, this qualifies for a beauty blog!



Meet Egglettes.

 These lil goodies are available on Amazon and I have a video demonstrating me using them. Overall, I like them. Though as much as I do like them, I don't really use mine because lately,
(insert *gasp* here)  - I've just been buying the pre-made packaged boiled eggs that are already peeled and ready eat. It's been the clean eating help as I travel.  Having my food prepared and ready in a cooler as I drive has kept me out of the drive thru!

 So - this is sort of beauty related and that is egg collagen can be good for your skin! Let me know what you think!

Would You Change You Because Others Were Changing?

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Happy Monday!

December is in full effect and in more ways than one!
So I'm taking a different focus this year with the blog - instead of sharing about the myriad of gifts available, how about we focus a moment on the real gift.  You!


The beauty community and blogging and Youtube are rapidly changing and I see so many quickly changing to follow suit.

Well, how about this - instead of you conforming to all that the world is shaping you as, how about you be an original one of a kind version of you! You are worthy. Beautiful. Creative.

The world needs more of you as you, not you as a great imitation of someone else.

So how about going forward in this season of expecting miracles and celebration - we focus on you and celebrating all of your unique qualities!

That's what I want to see and read about. You, as you were intended to be.


 Amen. Selah. Deep breath. Be the best you!

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Woo hoo - how is your Cyber Monday going? Mine was doin' pretty darn good until that moment when I have  been watching Amazon ALL morning long. Just waiting for the LEGO Apollo Saturn V kit to go on sale. It did. In the seconds it took for me to click put into cart someone else bought it.


So, maybe there was one?  One in all of internet land? Really? I will still buy it, but I doubt I will get it for $78 and it's normally about $119. Rawr! So mad.

But I digress. Overall the Thanksgiving holiday weekend was wonderful! Cheers to yours being so as well!

SHOP SMALL Saturday - Enjoy These Deals!

Good morning Gorgeous!

Happy Shop Small Saturday! I love this day of the year when it comes to shopping and the melee that ensues around Black Friday - I do not partake! 



 I do all of my shopping online and even when it comes to Shop Small Saturday, I do my shopping online. Why? Because I live in a rural area and don't like going into town unless it's mandatory. Also because I have such a mega commute for work, I just don't drive if I don't have to.

So today on Shop Small Saturday - look for this blue sticker and help support the dreams of someone working a small business!


 And - please consider ordering online from businesses that have been affected by the wildfires in California, like Neptune's Net. Oh how I love to eat here!  When I leave work in Burbank, if at all possible, I drive over the wine country hills of Calabassas through the canyon and down to the beautiful Pacific ocean and then turn right, go up the PCH about 5 miles and look to the right.


There is Neptune's Net, a small family owned eatery that has been there for decades. Until now - the building is still there though they are without power! The wildfire came right up to the edge of their building yet they were spared! If you could, would you order something from their website?  A gift card, key chain, tshirt, anything will help! It keeps them in business while APS is working to get the power back on.

Use this link here   https://neptunesnet.com/products


Now for my guys and gals out there who have family portraits coming up, and travel, and CES and any number of events you are going to need a fresh shave, a perfect stocking stuffer and some anti-aging skincare to be work ready in the new year!


Consider shopping J Paul Skincare online and get a big discount while also supporting an independent family owned business!  I've tried the skincare and love the shave cream filled triple blade razor for travel! 

Use this link to order:  http://www.jpaulskincare.com/


Now just in case you or someone you know is getting married, I have my diy bridal makeup course geared to the encore bride or those who are saying "I do" times two.  

These short videos are easy to follow and learn along with to get your best destination wedding look, or backyard brides have a deep saving on your wedding budget with this video course.


Use this link for savings and a free gift with purchase!

http://diybridalmakeup.teachable.com/

This holiday weekend, instead of buying the separate $47 personal one on one makeup lesson, get it free this weekend only when you shop small!
 
Now get to shoppin' small!

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Tomorrow is the big day! In the United States, we celebrate a day of thanksgiving to remember that there was a time when the colonists had survived another winter and actually had enough extra to have a feast with the Natives. Little did we Natives know how south things would go afterwards - yet - I digress.






So this video is a 3 bottle option for getting $10 wines that can be great hostess gifts, something for yourself, or to open for the meal.










Enjoy! Please let me know in the comments what your favorite holiday wine is!

What Are You Working On Now?

 Hi ya Gorgeous,

This year is fast on it's way to a close. How are you doing? Are you still pushing towards goals you set back in January? I'm sharing a video and it's what I've been working on this past year. Wow. Funny how when you do a lil' bit all the time, how it adds up!  Keep going Beauty! You got this!




This video is a cross over from my other channel - it's my current producer and director reel that I have been using to book some new gigs.
It took me a long time. I would say, almost two years to finally make peace with being behind the camera as both makeup artist and director.  That crossover firmly happened with the making of the World Is Still Spinning music video for Sedona Skies band in Austin Texas.

Yes, I still beauty blog, and do breakthrough events for women empowerment, though I just do it around my filming schedule now.






I say all of this to encourage you - that when you are transitioning it can be messy, confusing, and trust me, it's going to take longer than you think, so please be kind and have patience with yourself!

Thank you for being a part of the cross over with me!
MakeupUniversity and Lions Rest have lots to get started on for 2019!
Stay tuned!

Movember - Ways to Help Others While Helping Yourself with J Paul Skincare

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Did you know that the month of November is to men's health awareness what October is to women's health and breast cancer awareness? It's called, Movember!




For men, Movember is about growing out a mustache, or maybe even a beard to raise awareness about men's health issues that normally don't get a lot of discussion through out the year such as prostate cancer and men's suicide rates or even rarer known health issues such as EDS.


I've written about the genius of the all in one shaver from J Paul Skincare before and today I'm revisiting the products because J Paul Skincare is doing a major fundraiser for the Ehlers-Danlos Society during the Movember movement.  (p.s. That shaver is with me as I travel!)



J Paul offers a wide variety of skincare systems for men and women, to choose from. You can get a basic 3 step skincare system of wash, scrub and shave or if you have some signs of aging, consider getting the anti-aging line, which I am using in the photos.





Help J Paul Support the Cause in #Movember!! Through the month of November, J Paul will donate 10% of all sales to the Ehlers-Danlos Society. Ehlers-Danlos Society helps raise awareness and funds for connective tissue genetic disorder EDS. For information about EDS and the Ehlers-Danlos Society visit Ehlers-Danlos.com. 




Now it's easy to get in on the support by purchasing your own skincare, or a Christmas gift of skincare for the men in your life and when you order in November for giving in December you actually give twice because J Paul Skincare is donating this month to help research and treatment for those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

What A Guy Thinks of Dove Men+Care - How to Prep for the Holidays Ahead of Time

Hi ya Gorgeous,

Thanksgiving is two weeks away! Are you ready? Are you doing any and all pre-preparations that you can to make the day go smoother and have less time prepping and more time with friends and family? 





My family used to have great big celebrations with lots of extended families and cousins from the third bloodline joining in. These events were huge! Now, no one gets together! It's just the core family and even then - we split it up with travel to here and there. I do like how we do our holidays now though I sure do miss the old days and big family gatherings were the cooking starts the night before!


So in preparation for holiday travel and having everything pre-packed and ready to be dropped into the car at a moments notice, my son has joined me to do some first impression and reviews of the samples that Dove Men+Care sent. Thank you Dove!





Enjoy the video below and let me know in the comments what your favorite memory is of past holidays!

Happy Veterans Day - Today Is a Day of Honor, Remembrance and Helping Those Around You

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Today in the United States is an important day to remember those who gave all on the battlefield - and most importantly take care for those who  came back from war though are still fighting.






 Today is Veterans Day and there are many events going on nationwide providing discounts and free services to veterans from any of the wars.



I have a list below of a sample of places a United States veteran can receive some free services today - and going forward, please receive this hug from me to you and a hand shake with a very gratitude filled thank you sir, for your service!



Free hair cuts for veterans!  I know that my local Great Clips does the free hair cut AND if you can not wait or get in on the 11th - ask for a card that allows you to come back at another date for the free hair cut.  Find out more here:  https://www.greatclips.com/promotions/veterans-day


Food:

VOTE! Today Your Voice Matters - Your Vote Matters - Go Vote!

HI ya Gorgeous!

Today in the United States of America is an important day. It's a mid term election.



Back in the day, our ancestors, those courageous beauties in 1848 began the movement as suffragettes to earn the vote for women.

August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. The 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote.

Go ladies go!
