How Does Doe Deere Spend Her Day?

Hi ya Gorgeous!

I have a guest post to share with you an encouraging word of how hard work and perseverance can pay off!

Enjoy this and let yourself be encouraged as you pursue your passions!

How Doe Deere spends her day
Doe Deere is more than a fashion diva and giant in the field of beauty and cosmetics. She's a successful entrepreneur who has a mind for business and glamour. She is not afraid to be extravagant, bold and creative and encourages other women to unlock their inner potential, reach for the stars and live a successful life.

All of that is nothing new for the Izhevsk, Russia native. As a young girl she tapped into her imagination and entrepreneurial spirit. One evening Deere and a group of her friends enjoyed a slumber party while dressing up as witches. That party got her interested in cosmetics and led to her starting her own business while just a grade school student. Deere developed her own line of temporary tattoos and sold them to her classmates, marketing them as "cool."

When Deere turned 17, she left Russia behind and emigrated to the United States, landing in New York City to pursue a career with her band, sky Salt. One of the band members, Mark, is now Deere's husband and serves as president of the couple's cosmetic company, Lime Crime.

With all her success, Deere starts the day like most of us. She wakes up each morning in her Los Angeles home without fail at 8:30 a.m. (no alarm lock needed). Deere, a self-proclaimed morning person, says she enjoys waking up after a restful night's sleep. The first thing she does is drink an entire glass of water. Los Angeles has a relatively dry climate, so staying fully hydrated is important in order to stay healthy. Deere then might spend a few minutes admiring nature from a window before doing a series of stretching exercises and enjoying breakfast, which usually includes grits, yogurt and freshly squeezed juice that comes from one the orange trees in her backyard.

After breakfast, Deere turns her attention to business. She speaks with her employees, who she considers family, via a closed internet system and responds to emails. An avid user of Instagram, Deere checks the social network to see not only what's happening in the world but to spot what's trending as well.

After all that is done, Deere begins to prepare for the day. She takes her showers before going to bed, allowing her hair to dry naturally overnight. Cranking up some music (Deere is currently enjoying songs by The Beatles), she uses a curling iron to style her hair in her signature looks – loose and with large curls.

Deere then turns her attention to her makeup. First things first, she washes and moisturizes her face every day. Next comes foundation, which Lime Crime will soon offer. She then fills in her eyebrows and applies blush and lipstick, usually in red or pink.

Before leaving for the office, Deere spends some quality time with her two cats, showering them with love and affection. She arrives at work at noon, where she has lunch and discussions with her team. Deere then spends the rest of the day in meetings before leaving the office at 6 p.m., or sometimes later, depending upon what is on her agenda.

In Need of a Spring Break Lippie? Try the New Essence Cosmetics Butter Stick Lip Gloss

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Oh wow! Long time no chit chat! I am doing my best to get a post up on Monday - and here it is...Wednesday! My deep apologies! Though, I have good reason for missing the deadline.

I have been pressing forward in media and film making and I have a new short film, that is a family friendly positive encouraging "got get 'em" attitude of a story!

I'm so excited for 8 Days in Havasu to release on Amazon March 15th!

I took my samples from Essence Cosmetics - by the way, thank you very much Essence Cosmetics for these lovely samples! I loved mine, and then I took them to set to show the talent, and they loved too!

I'm short some colors because the talent loved!

So I have two videos for you - a lil vignette from the beach shoot with talent Leah Nead and also the full review from me

This video features these new matte and glossy shea butter infused lip "sticks"! These are available at Ulta Beauty or through the Essence Cosmetics website and average $3.99! I received these as free samples for a review and I'm so glad I got to try them! The colors featured in the video are: strawberry, dark syrup, hot cocoa, berry gold and the dark glossy brown did not have a name on it! I used these in my latest film, 8 Days in Havasu with lead actress Leah Nead! You can see her video on the Facebook page,

MyChelle Beauty Key 3 -what Valentine's Day skin needs now

Hi ya Gorgeous!

TGIF! It's so hot in Arizona right now and it's not even summer!  Valentine's Day is coming up next week and if you need a simple way to prepare your skin to look your best on date night, look no further than MyChelle Dermaceuticals.

These skincare products are bioactive, ethically sourced and formulated with high performance ingredients - like plant stem cells, peptides and vitamins in their most potent forms for superior results and natural healthy skin.

I'm a big serum user and lover and whoa do these ever work! I noticed results in the first day of using morning and night, the following morning, my skin texture was smoother and more vibrant.

I'm loving that the Retinal serum really looks and smells like it contains turmeric and ginger.

I tried samples of the Perfect C Serum 17% and it smells good and feels good!  I also tried the Remarkable Retinal Serum and it could possible be the culprit behind improving the texture of my skin.

All of the MyChelle products are certified gluten free, cruelty free, vegan and non-gmo.  These products are good for your skin and good for the planet.

My final sample I received is the Sun Shield SPF 28 Unscented and it uses titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as natural mineral barriers on the skin to the sun.  I do like it, though I don't love it.  This sunscreen does not contain any oxybenzone or avobenzone chemical ingredients making it reef safe and human safe too!

I'm definitely looking at more MyChelle Dermaceuticals to add to my skincare regime!
If you need to get a quick jumpstart on amazing skin for Valentine's Day, try some MyChelle Dermaceuticals, available online on their website, Amazon or at Whole Foods!

Meet MLK2.0 by David Litwin book review

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday and February! To say that the time is flying by is an understatement!  I'm so glad for the great activity, though a part of me is ready to just sit and relax in my chair and read a book!

Oh, wait - I did just do that! I just read the book MLK2.0 by David Litwin.  Wow is it ever action item packed and something that you could really benefit by reading!

It's available on Amazon for paperback or Kindle edition.  What I liked best about the book, is the message of hope. Not in the way like Red in The Shawshank Redemption talks about hope, but in the sense that you can truly help yourself, right now, where you are at with what you have kind of hope.

It's really important that in the ayin season that we are in, that you make the most of each moment that comes your way and be listening and tuned in to what your next step is.  So how do you know what the next step is and how to listen to it? Easy. You prepare yourself!  This wee read is a tool to help you, help yourself.

It's a short and easy read with action items that you can do right now! So what are you waiting for? Get started today on MLK2.0 by David Litwin.

Watch the video and see! other news, since I haven't updated in awhile I also included a wee bit of review on the L'Oreal Feria GlamGrunge hair color in Denim. Nope. Not at all. More like Grungy Elvis Presley!  My hair is not one shade of blue, more like, multi-shades of black!

Okay, it's going to be a very long grow out and cut, grow out and cut, grow out and cut, grow out and cut season for me. Be praying!
