San Diego Yacht Club and TOOL

Oh Hello Gorgeous!
It's been a busy, blustery day in the San Diego area.
I'm here for a baby shower but in this whirlwind trip I have also visited Neptune's Net in Malibu.

Then a set of secret beach caves for a photoshoot, followed by an amazing meal at Moonshadows and then...

I went down the coast to Carlsbad to pit stop for a visit before heading further south to San Diego.

Good times my friends.

 In San Diego, the day was stormy and grey, it rained, but not on our happy selves!

 There were so many amazing gifts and goodies given to the Mom to Be!

Though this is the best! It's part of the wine collection from TOOL singer Maynard. Oy! I hope I am around when the Mom to Be opens this post baby! Need a babysitter? Sign me up!

 Such good times and a sweet reminder of how precious friends and family are! Cheers to you enjoying your loved ones!

TGIF with Salon Grafix Play it BIG Blonde Volumizing Dry Shampoo & Firmer Hold Hairspray

 TGIF Gorgeous!
February is about to close this weekend and bring on March Madness! Is the saying "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb? If yes it's true here. In Arizona we have gone from too warm for February to extreme wind and cold, with rain? Say what?

 (Rob Schumacher/The Arizona Republic, via Associated PressA summer dust storm in Phoenix.)

 I share this photo to show the beauty of Arizona and the level of wind and storms we can have! This is actually a 'haboob'-a sand/wind storm Arizona is prone too.

So how are you going to keep your hair style in place in all of this weird weather?

Salon Grafix. That's how!

Philip B Stroke of Genius 65mm boar bristle round brush

Hello fellow Spring Break planners!
This year, since my son has started home schooling, we are planning a different sort of spring break and one more focused on a college science tour instead of our usual Carlsbad party.

I've also noticed in the Farmer's Almanac for weather that we are looking at a much cooler than normal March and April. That's okay by me because July is coming! I want to soak up as much coolness as I can!

So time to introduce you to  a new product and one that is perfect for spring break travel!

Meet the Philip B Large Round Hair Brush!

Emma Stone at the Oscars: a coral lip via Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Color?

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
There was definitely a theme at the Oscars this year: smooth hair with formed waves and a red toned lip!

Look here at the gorgeous Miss Emma Stone on the Oscars red carpet. That lip color looks just like  Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Color in coral.

 Have you tried this Laura Mercier product yet?

Oscars 2015: best dressed on the red carpet: Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Serum much?

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
Good morning to you! Wow. I saw half of the Oscars last night due to the anti-family stance of ABC to allow the show host to walk out in his underwear. That was not at accident, it was planned. It was in poor taste and shows how little ABC cares about artistry, the viewers, young filmmakers watching and morals in society.

It was the same on the red carpet. There were so many gaping cleavage baring gowns and crotch high slits that the red carpet was filled with bared breasts in the front, side boob and corner va-jay-jay.

Oscars 2015 tonight! Who wears what makeup on the red carpet?

Hi ya Gorgeous!
It's a fun day if you are a film fan and follower. Tonight is the 87yh Academy Awards now commonly known as the Oscars.

If you have seen a movie at all this year, it just may be nominated and possibly a contender to win this high honor in film making.

 The red carpet is the big deal and just as much part of the show now as the actual award ceremony.

Angelica Huston once said "going to the Oscars meant finding something to wear, putting some makeup on and curling your hair-now it's this big production".

Well, yes, Ms Huston-it sure is.

Professional makeup artist, hair stylists, designers and stylists all make up the big deal on the red carpet.
For a makeup artist, the look has to match the hair, the gown and last all day. Literally. The celebrity will go into hair and makeup in the early afternoon, and be on the red carpet for the pre-show by 4:30. Meaning the makeup has to last under weather conditions, lights, and just the body sweating and being under duress and nerves.

So what to use for a red carpet look that lasts?

Oscars red carpet beauty: simple with Miracle Skin Transformer 5 in 1 BB creme

Hello Gorgeous!

Who are you voting for at this year's Oscars to win best picture? I will be watching. I love the fashion and glamour of the hair and makeup.

Oh and this dress. This dress Jennifer Lawrence wore is amazing and iconic! Oh, and she also tripped in it while going up the stairs to accept her award.

So what do the celebrities wear on their skin? Oh it could be a mix and match of things. But I thin the more sheer and natural the better for the sheer fact that it has to last for so long without touch ups!

This new 5 in 1 BB creme from Sarah McNamara's Miracle Skin Transformer could be what the A-listers are wearing on the 2015 Oscars red carpet.

Monroe to celebrate Phoenix’s first annual Phoenix Startup Week.  Applicants are encouraged to apply for the StartUp PHX Challenge before the March 1st deadline for an opportunity to share a building with elite tenants like Uber, Cannon Design and Mornin' Moonshine. The winning tenant will be selected and announced in late March.

As part of Phoenix Startup Week, the StartUp PHX Challenge is looking for the best and brightest startups seeking a place to grow. The winner will call 111 W. Monroe their new home with a fully-furnished 1,200 square foot office space featuring panoramic city and mountain views from the 12th floor in Downtown Phoenix. In addition to six free months office space, complete office furniture will be provided by Goodman’s Interior Structures, another Phoenix-based company passionate about doing good and fueling growth.

The new ownership acquired the 50-year-old office tower in April 2014, favoring the property's core urban location and functional configuration, which is ideal for both large corporations and small, entrepreneurial businesses.   
“We are thrilled with the entrepreneurial business community finding its way to 111 W. Monroe,” said Tim O’Neil of Ironline Partners. “The restoration is designed to raise the bar for architecturally significant properties in Downtown Phoenix, offering a destination for inspired businesses that demand both institutional grade facilities and a local, boutique experience.”

See that bottom right corner of this photo. That's the Zumba dvd-I've done it twice and I love it. There are about a dozen or so "music video" clips that are simple to follow.

Here is my FabFitFun Winter VIP box unveiling on YouTube. (p.s. I got my Winter box last boo the delay!)

Lather & LaurenB. Beauty give a mani ready for Fat Tuesday! Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Honk honk 'n' holler Gorgeous!
I'm not going out today or tonight to celebrate and indulge in Fat Tuesday. That was SO ten years ago...

But if I were, I would want a festive manicure-something that says modesty and Mardi Gras at the same time.

Meet LaurenB.Beauty and the other goodies I used in my manicure!

Happy Fat Tuesday! Laissez les bons temps rouler with High Beams Intense Hot Pink

 Hello  Gorgeous!
Laissez les bons temps rouler! The Cajun phrase that means "let the good times roll" and officially uncorks all libations for a day long all evening til the sun comes up party before the official Lent season begins.

Now, if I were going to a Mardi Gras type party tonight I would definitely need some wild hair!

Pick up some High Beams hot pink spray along the way and put some party streaks in your hair!

You can find this Salon Grafiic temporary hair color spay at major drugstore and retailers for about $4.99.
I find it works best in my son's light hair color and gives a bright, intense result. On my dark brown hair, it makes a more nuanced look. But still says 'here to party'.

High Beams Temporary Spray-On Color

Wonder what it would be like to go for those blonde highlights?
Feel like taking on the trends and adding a shot of blue to your bangs?
Take the guesswork out of coloring your hair with our
High Beams collection. Create highlights, cover gray, even
fill in thinning areas. And with 22 wash-out shades, you can
get creative - with no remorse.
Remember: you are beautiful! Thank you for visiting the blog and check back for promotions and beauty giveaways!

Red carpet ready with Schwarzkop Essence Ultime with Luxuriious Pearl Essence for Diamond Color & Radiance conditioners

 Holy smokes and Happy Monday!
Where does the month go? No, really. It's half way through February and quickly sliding in to March and I feel like I am on a tobaggon slide into madness! Ahhh!!

I have been homeschooling my son for one month now. Serenity now. It's the best and most challenging thing ever. I'm loving that now I literally can take him to any 'natural' classroom I want to. Museums, University programs, travel, arts, music and then some!

Oh-and then there are the 'books' that must be done for curriculum standards in Arizona.

Ok God-give me grace to do what I have been called to do!

So that brings me to, if you see any posts and wonder why they are brief, or lack the fun and fancy photos of yore; it's because suddenly I'm doing 4 full time jobs per day, every day and my passionproject of the blog has been re-assigned to the final hour of the day. Sigh. Grace grace! Ican do all things through Christ! Amen!

Now that you are updated on what's going on around here, let's meet the new Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime line developed with Claudia Schiffer.

Happy Valentines Day with Old Fashioned movie-go see it today!

Happy Valentine's Day to you sweet Gorgeous!
As a single gal, I love love love this holiday! It's not even a real holiday, though I love celebrating, LOVE!
Jesus is my Valentine and He loved me before I was even born!

Going forward, to all the loved ones out there, and that means every single one of you: do not be dismayed or disheartened by the fluff and fancy of the superficial "holiday'ness of Valentines day. Hallmark paid dearly for this holdiay but you do not have to participate in taht part of it.

What you can do, is do something wee and encouraging for everyone you love: that means child, Mom, Dad, sister, brother, best friend,neighbor and relatives and coworkers.

I have already sent my cards to those I love! These are not big notions, just wee remembrances and a reminder that I appreciate them.

If you are going on a date with a signifcant other, mate and loved one, please see the Old Fashioned movie.

Right now there is such a push for immorality, abuse, and crimes against women in the very paid promotion efforts for the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

I'm here to remind you Gorgeous of the scripture that love does not hurt! I'm not saying boycott Fifty Shades of Grey and all of their mainstream porn toys in the Target aisles where your children and teens will see bondage and sex toys for abuse and bestiality, I am merely saying, choose wisely in what you put in front of your eyes!

1 Corinthians 13:4-7New International Version (NIV)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

I love you! Happy Valentines Day!

Old Fashioned

Film Description:

Chivalry make a comeback.
Former frat boy Clay Walsh has given up his reckless lifestyle and settled down to run an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. Determined to put his partying ways behind him, Clay has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.

TEEN WEEK: The 7 Mountain Generation with Lance Wallnau

Hello Gorgeous,
We kicked off the week with how to manage your money with Brittney Castro and today we are going to focus on how to take the leading edge in your given talents and make the most of it for yourself, your family and your community.

There  is so much more to you! You need to know how to steward your gifts and make an impact on culture, for the good of all.

Meet Lance Wallnau and his program dedicated to empowering youths in the 7 Mountain Strategy.

This is a repost from his website, you can learn more by visiting it here.

7M Team #1 from Lance Learning Group on Vimeo.

The 7M Gen is the real Joshua Generation that crosses over… out of the wilderness of religion and into the inheritance of Christ – NATIONS!
As Israel of old crossed into the Promised Land we cross over into a land of prophetic promises given to the church.  They had to dispossess the “giants” in the land. Israel had to occupy seven nations promised to them as their inheritance.

Their experience was written for us, “these things were written for our sake upon whom the ends of the world have come.” (2 Cor) We are the twin generation where “Old men dream dreams and young men have visions.” It is a combination of old and young called to run together into the end-time harvest of souls and nations.

The 7M generation is accessing the “powers of the age to come” (Heb 6:5) They are the Melchizedek priesthood where the natural and spiritual come together under the command of a Royal Priest. According to Hebrews, Melchesidek is an order of Christ as High Priest. This man is a prototype person in the old testament who was both King of Jerusalem and a Priest of the Most High God.

Put the two together and you have a “royal priesthood” who know how to exercise their spiritual rights to the throne of Grace so that they can administrate the power of  the reign of Christ into the earth where they are assigned. Having access to the powers of the age to come, this generation reaches into the 7M or seven manifestations of the kingdom in the millennium and bring a portion of that into the present as a testimony to the reality of the kingdom!

Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Mt 24:14)

The seven fold manifestation of that age to come is described as follows: “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.” (Rev 5:12)

How will the 7MGen be instrumental in bringing “testimony” to their Nations?

God is going to pour out of His Spirit on all flesh. This company called the 7mGen is standing in all walks of life, not just as itinerant revivalists but also as saints in the various professions of life who redeem their sphere of influence by boldly accessing the power of the age to come. Bringing heaven to earth because they worship the Lamb that was slain who is worthy NOW to receive…

Note what John described: “power and riches and wisdom and honor and might and honor and glory and blessing!”

Power: To Rulers that honor Christ. Their Governments and their military no matter how small shall “out of weakness be made strong.” They shall receive power to be as Davids before the Goliath’s of the earth as angels do battle to protect the inheritance given to Jesus.

Riches: In Business, fueling the economic resources of Sheep Nations. God will release natural resources and innovative technology to manifest wealth

Wisdom: To students and citizens whose schools and educational establishments seek first the wisdom that comes by the revelation of God. Like Daniel and his friends in Babylon “As for these four youths, God gave them knowledge and intelligence in every branch of literature and wisdom; Daniel even understood all kinds of visions and dreams.” (Dan 1:17)

Might: To beleaguered and battered households of earth. This is for Families, for fathers and mothers and children and those who have no family. This might is the spirit and power of Elijah who causes the hearts of the Fathers to be turned to their children. Fathers and Mothers of Nations will be raised. God is finding Fathers to whom He will gibe might to be new  Founding Fathers to rebuild the nations.

Honor: In the church and through the church, the Lambs wife who alone has the power to release the supernatural prosperity of God over life and every aspect of culture shall be held in fear and reverence – for God shall be in their midst. Their leaders shall be such “No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people.” (Acts 5:13)
man durst join himself to them for they were held in honor.

Glory: in the Arts, in music and sound and theater and film and all manner of literature and artistic expression. The manifest presence of God shall be released in Arts!

Blessing: Media shall speak the courageous truth in an age when Satan goes forth to “deceive the nations.” The “good news” isn’t always the news you want at first, but it is the truth and as such holds the key to blessing. The entire Bible is called the “good news” even though it has the story of blessing and curses that come in the lives of those who walk its pages.

The great promise of an end time outpouring will accompany this move.

In the Last Days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.” (Acts 2:17)
Note that this move involves a highly prophetic culture.

However you choose to describe it, this company is made up of old and young moving in prophecy, dreams and visions. Is it too much to believe that the last generation shall be able to step first into the power of the age to come? Bringing into this present time the evidence of the kingdom that is about to come upon the earth at the return of the King?

This is the 7M Gen.

TEEN WEEK: Go For It! A wee word of advice and encouragement from Ooh La Nicoise

 Hello Gorgeous!
Welcome to another feature in the TEEN WEEK 2015! Today, my guest bloggers are Jessica and Rebecca from Ooh La Nicoise.

These talented and generous ladies have a powerful word of encouragement for you! Read on!


We were recently interviewed by yoU Mag - an online Women's Empowerment magazine, and one of the questions in the interview was, "You two have embarked on something you're passionate about.  Many of us sit and day dream about things we wish to accomplish. For those who may need a little push or some words of encouragement, what do you want to tell them?" Our response was, "Go for it!"  

Yes, go for it!  We all have that little voice in our head that we hear when we get really excited about something, like when we have an idea that we think is great.  But more often than not, we hush that voice and we don't follow through on the idea because we talk ourselves out of it.  Thoughts like, "that's too much work," "no one will care" and "where will I even start?" creep into our head and we have squashed a dream before we even try!  But why?! Every great accomplishment started as an idea; a thought in someone's head....a thought that they didn't squash, because they weren't afraid to "Go for it!"  

So here's what you do, are you ready for this? You just start.... you sit down and come up with a plan.  When we started our blog, Ooh La Nicoise, we wanted to create a passion project without incurring expenses and without overwhelming ourselves by taking on a huge commitment all at once.  So we sat down, came up with a plan and started working that plan, piece by piece, every day.  Little by little our passion project has grown, all because we weren't afraid to just start.  You can do it too! Start small and keep it simple, allow your ideas to grow and develop over time!  You are capable of anything you put your mind to.  Have you ever heard the old adage, "How do you eat an elephant?"  Well, it's one piece at a time.  But the most important part is to let your creativity flow and see what develops.  When we started our blog, we had no idea television shows would be calling us, asking us to do food reviews on air, or that prestigious restaurants like PaliHouse would actually change their menu based on OUR recommendations.  But all of this has happened and much more is on the way, and it's because we had an idea, and we decided to take that idea and build it into something that we love, Ooh La Nicoise.  You can "Go for it" too, all you need to do, is start.

TEEN WEEK 2015 starts now with Brittney Castro of Financially Wise Women

Hello Gorgeous!
It's here! It's TEEN WEEK on the Makeup University blog and I swear this is my most favorite time of the year.
I have a heart, a yearn, a love for  encouraging the young ladies of the world. It's my honor and privilege to bring you another round of TEEN WEEK where all the posts focus on an area of life and encouragement for it!

Kicking off the week is Financially Wise Women creator Brittney Castro. She has a fun video to show you just how easy it is to take the income you have, whether it's from your birthday money, babysitting, side gig or allowance and turn it into the savings and fun money you want and need.

Learn more about how the 50/30/20 rule works on her website, and enjoy the video below!

P.S. I have personally been implementing the strategies #FWW Brittney Castro teaches and I'm on track to be out of debt in the next 3 months as well as have the savings I need for a 2 family vacations this summer. Booya!

So tell me, what do you want to be a financially wise teen about?
