Bigfoot Trails: Pacific Northwest - a summer book club read for the whole family

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
 I love a good read-especially  summer book full of adventure! This story about Big Foot is perfect for a road trip read with the kids!

Check out this press release and pick up a copy for the fam today!



Bigfoot Trails: Pacific Northwest” takes children through a beautiful, exciting journey looking for evidence of Bigfoot "

Reedsport, OR, June 14, 2016– Sara and Adam Jeffers, a husband and wife team that write under the pseudonym S.A. Jeffers, have released the first book in their highly anticipated Bigfoot Trails series.

The first book, Bigfoot Trails: Pacific Northwest takes place in the high Cascades and salmon-filled streams of the Pacific Northwest. Each scene contains evidence of Bigfoot’s presence, from a footprint to several Bigfoots in the trees. The book is designed to help children to read while they have fun looking for evidence that Bigfoot exists. The book is available in paperback and e-book via Amazon. 

“We are excited to be able to share this book and this amazing legend with children. The story of Bigfoot dates back hundreds of years and it’s an exciting and fun way to spend time in the woods. Our book, Bigfoot Trails: Pacific Northwest, is designed to play hide and seek with world’s reigning champion hider, Bigfoot.” – Sara Jeffers, coauthor, Bigfoot Trails: Pacific Northwest

Beautifully illustrated by Catherine Straus, each scene shows life in the woods and mountains of the Pacific Northwest. In each image, Bigfoot has left evidence of his passing, from hair to his bed. Children might even catch a glimpse of the Big “Man” himself. There is so much happening on each page that it turns into more than just a search for Bigfoot; it becomes a chance to identify many of the animals, birds, and fish that live in one of America’s most beautiful regions.

“Working with Catherine was wonderful. She saw the vision immediately then she was able to put the ideas right on the page. Catherine is as passionate about children (and Bigfoot) as we are. 
I think you and your kids will enjoy this book and you can get it as a E read or in paperback-

Schwarzkopf Color ULTIME in Copper - fun summer color

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday!

Woot! I'm working with Sun Laboratories and Giselle Cosmetics at the International Beauty Show in Las Vegas. Today is the last day-it's bittersweet. The show has been amazing and so much fun-yet I am ready to get home to the fam!

So while I am finishing that, here is a lil review of my Schwarzkopf Color ULTIME Copper Browns.

This is a box kit of DIY hair color and you can find it at mass retailers nationwide for about $10.
The box includes instructions, gloves, conditioner, the color and a bottle applicator full of developer.

 Before I could apply the copper color to my hair-I had to fix a few things; such as the multi grey, brown, light brown rainbow of color at the top of my head. I had to do a light bleaching of some of the mish mosh of browns.

I put the color together in the bottle, gave it a good shake and then applied. I have a finished look and I love the color. It's fun and definitely not something that I would normally pick for myself, so it's nice to have a blog sample in something outside of my comfort zone!

 Get your own fun summer color at a drugstore or Walmart near you! The Schwarzkopf brand has been around for 100 years and is trusted professionally.  You may as well get a fresh look for the Independence Day holiday!

Happy Feet with Skyy Hadley and Lauren B Beauty!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Quick note to share a guest post with you on how to get an amazing pedicure at home! This will save you some summer cash while getting you a party ready pedicure!


·         Skyy Hadley, owner of As U Wish Salon, knows how walking around every day in the summer heat can take a toll on your feet. Pamper them with these at-home pedicure tips!

·         After removing nail polish and spraying feet with an antiseptic, soak feet in water and milk. Adding milk is a crucial step as water can strip skin of moisture and leave feet drier. Milk naturally exfoliates and nourishes the skin and it’s right in your refrigerator.
·         Lightly shape the toenails by cutting nails back slightly and massaging toes and feet with cream or oil. After feet have soaked for a few minutes, push back the cuticlesdo NOT cut them. Cutting them creates more hangnails and can even lead to infection.
·         Lightly buff the nail plate while it is still moist with a cuticle cream or conditioner. Then buff the skin on your feet by applying a foot scrub and massaging the formula deep into the skin, concentrating on trouble spots. To really smooth things over, use a diamond file (avoid pumices as they trap bacteria) on particularly rough patches like the heel and ball of the foot.  

·         To maintain and prolong color, use a primer on the nails first. This step actually dehydrates the nail by bringing the natural oils out, making color grip longer. After applying color, add a top coat. Three days later, apply a top coat again to prevent color from chipping

Summer jewelery for every occassion with Oksinya

Hi ya Gorgeous,
I have found a fun website full of affordable jewelery styles for this summer and all it's adventures!
I just ordered a choker from Oksinya and will show you what it looks like as soon as it arrives. In the meantime, I found this to be really helpful, enjoy!

The neckline of a dress makes up 90% of the deciding factor when choosing wearing a decadent neck piece or not. Different necklines look better with certain necklace styles.

Learn how to choose the best necklaces for every neckline!
1. V neck – ideally a necklace that matches the shape of the V – depending if it’s a wider or narrower V neck. Avoid chokers it's making the neck appear thicker. Something you could wear would be a simple necklace with a single pendant like a gem or pearl. If you are wearing a simple shirt you can dress it up with a bigger, flashier necklace.

2. Halter necks – these create a narrow V neck – so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end.

3. Strapless neckline provides a unique opportunity to make a statement – look great with chokers or short pendants, leaving your lovely decolletage bare. This is also an opportunity to wear something bigger and more elaborate. It's best if most necklaces hit at least 1 inch above the neckline.

4. Square necks – look for geometric necklace or pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline.

5. Collared shirt (button down) – accessorize with a necklace that goes OVER the shirt. A large statement necklace looks great with this style, or a focal pendant that sits at the throat like a brooch.

6. Turtle necks – best with longer necklaces. don't choose a necklace style that is too short. A longer necklace will give the appearance of a longer neck and a more elegant look.

7. Boat neck – a long string or two of beads is ideal for this neckline.The boatneck style of shirt has a wide, open neckline. Long necklace doesn't compete with the collar, and it creates a long, elegant line on your body.

8. Cowl neck – this neckline is already detailed and has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of massive earrings instead of a necklace. But you can create an elegant look by wearing multi-strains, and bold style worn tucked beneath the cowl. This is a great neckline for a big linked chains and long strands of large, chunky stones.

  1. Don't compete with the collar line.
    For most necklines, choose a necklace length that is either at least an inch higher  or at least a few inches below the neckline.
  2. Fill in empty skin space.
    Wherever skin shows at the neckline, that's a great place for a necklace. Take note of the shape created by your neckline, and choose necklaces that mimic the shape of your exposed skin.
  3. Experiment with over-shirt necklace styles.
    For over-sized or more complicated collars, it is often best to wear a necklace over the shirt, but under the collar. This adds contrast and interest to your outfit.
A dress with dazzling diamonds doesn’t need as much “help” as compared to say. Other aspects to consider are the embellishments. So many dresses are accented with bows, flowers, sashes and epaulets, it makes it hard to define a cohesive look so when in doubt, ditch the accessories.
According to your shoulders shape: If you have drooping shoulders Avoid Raglan sleeves as they make your shoulders look more sloped!

Hi ya Gorgeous,
I love reading in my spare time ( ha...there is no spare time) and I average 2 books a week.

I just received a sample copy of FACE VALUE by Autumn Whitefield-Madrano.

 I read it and I'm thankful for the sample though the book, even as it deals with beauty and makeup, some of my favorite subject matter, did not sit well with me.

Though, don't take my opinion! Get a copy of the book, read, and make an informed decision for yourself.

You can learn more about the author at her website:

6 Smart Packing Tips for Summer Travel

 Hi ya Gorgeous,

I received these tips in an email and found them useful, so I'm sharing with you!
Summer is a time when millions of people around the country travel for pleasure purposes. In fact, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports that over 650 million long distance summer trips are made between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend, with at least 50 miles being considered long distance. They also report that 90 percent of those trips are done by personal vehicle. As people travel, they often pack too much, and could do a lot better job being organized, which will help the trip be more enjoyable.

“People often find it a challenge to pack smart. Instead, they pack way too much, the wrong things, and end up finding the luggage process exhausting,” explains Dr. Bruno Sharp, a fourth-generation dentist who created a line of products called Dr. Sharp Dentistry, and is celebrating his 10th year as a Natural Oral Care provider. “The key to enjoying your trip more is to pack smart, which is easy if you know where to start.”
Here are 6 smart packing tips for summer travel:
  1. Carry essentials. If you have essential documents or valuables, you will want to avoid packing them where it will be difficult for you to get to them. Keep these items in a separate bag that is easily accessible and can be used as a carry-on if you will be flying. This will help you save time and avoid becoming frustrated.
  2. Go travel size. Forget what the hotel offers, as it is usually not what you want to use and you won’t enjoy your stay as much. TSA allows up to 3.4 ounces or less for carry-ons per item so opt for brands that you like to use that come in sizes you can carry along. For example, if you use natural oral care products you do not have to compromise on that when traveling. Just opt for the natural care products you purchase in smaller travel size containers. Toothpaste such as the ones by Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care are all airline compliant, so they won’t slow you down.
  3. Pack right. A lot of room can be saved in your bag or suitcase if you roll your clothing, rather than folding and stacking them. Take your items and individually fold them in half, then roll it up like a burrito.
  4. Separate shoes. Keep shoes to a minimum so you don’t pack more than you will actually wear. The shoes you do decide to take should be put into a separate plastic bag, before adding them in with the rest of your belongings. This will help keep your clothes from getting dirty or smelly from the shoes.
  5. Be prepared. If you are traveling and there’s an issue that comes up, you may spend a lot of time trying to find a remedy. Be prepared by taking a small bag of things like lip balm, antacids, and bandages. Pick up some individually wrapped antiperspirant wipes, antibacterial wipes, and mouth freshening wipes, like the ones from Savvy Travelers, so you are always prepared
  6. Add a small stash of these items to a Ziploc bag and toss it in the suitcase.
  7. Have backup. For smart packing, add a few large Ziploc bags to your suitcase. These will come in handy for staying organized and can be used for things like dirty clothes, souvenirs, and keeping things separated.
“You don’t have to compromise when you travel, we have shown that even with our oral hygiene products by offering them in travel size,” added Dr. Sharp. “You just need to think ahead and plan wisely. Doing this will help ensure that you enjoy the trip even more and won’t be bogged down by the little things.”
Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care toothpaste and floss all meet TSA regulations. His product line includes children’s toothpaste, adult toothpaste, fresh mint mouthwash, and dental tape. All products are safe to use, made in the USA, and are gluten-free, have no artificial colors or flavors, are vegan, non-GMO, alcohol-free, fluoride-free, and cruelty-free. Plus, they help whiten teeth and have xylitol, which is a natural sweetener that also helps to fight off cavities. The products are safe for the entire family. To learn more about Dr. Sharp Natural Oral Care products or see where they can be purchased, visit the site at:

Beauty Brands Summer Makeup Party at San Tan Village AZ

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Happy Monday to you! Whoa-the past few days have  been intense. In  the middle of it, I had an opportunity to visit a summer makeup party at the Beauty Brands in the San Tan Village in Gilbert Arizona.

My son and I were traveling back from a Tucson event and as we made our way North across Arizona we stopped in at this Beauty Brands event. Thanks for the invite Beauty Brands!

 My son loves the Elizabeth Arden Skin Perfecting creme for chapped lips, itchy pilaris keratosis spots and little scrapes he gets as he bounds through his day.

 He also made his way quickly to the snack bar of refreshments!

 These are the products that I bought because there are not any false eye lash sets sold at Beauty Brands? There was one small half eye side set from Eyeko which in no way would meet what I need and am looking for-so back to Amazon for those for the next makeup gig I have.

 The Elizabeth Arden is for my son, the Peter Thomas Roth peel pads are for me and I've tried them once and already I can see they are on the go back to the store list-not what I was looking for and no one around to answer my question while I was shopping. Beauty Brands has a 30 day return policy with a receipt.  The Bliss soapy suds is something my son picked up and said "smells like summer" so we got it!

Here's a little video that shows just what went down at the summer makeup party in Beauty Brands!

Lauren B Beauty-healthy polish for a fun summer nail look

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Quick note to share my plan for summer nails-I want a little bit of tint to help my style while holding my nails together!

Ever since I wore the gel manicure for a month my nails which are normally talon like in strength are now weak and brittle, bending and peeling off.

I am keeping them short and wearing a little bit of healthy polish to help hold them together!

I have to admit, I really like the perfect look and length that the look lasts with a gel manicure, but this is ridiculous what it has done to my nails!

Enter, Lauren B Beauty and their healthy polish line of products!

I'm wearing Beverly Hills Blush which is a light pink with a hint of shimmer. Beach perfect!

Get your own Lauren B Beauty at
 Most polishes are about $18.00

Frownies: what the Golden Age of Hollywood used to use for getting on camera ready

Hi ya Gorgeous,
I'm in Tucson prepping the set for Jael: A Western Tale- oh emm gee is it ever the hardest work filled fun ever.

So before I left I received a sample of these eye gels from Frownies.
Now, in case you didn't know, Frownies is an old skool classic beauty company from back in the day!

 They make one of the original wrinkle lifting anti-aging secret agents for on camera talent. Now they make these cooling eye gel pads to help soothe and plump fine lines around the eyes. I like 'em alot and have packed them on the road due to their "reusability" though so far, the first time is awesome and the second time was not so much.
I'm going to use the second application that is in the package.  They are about $29.95 from the website or at Walmarts.

Under Eye Solution

With one 30 minute treatment 100% of women testing Frownies eye gels saw a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and dark circles.*

How Eye Gels Work

The weight of the anti-wrinkle patch smooths and softens the under eye area while natural ingredients are directed to the specific area. Frownies Eye Gels promote beauty and provide antioxidants to help fight free radical damage. Natural ingredients are good for the skin.*

How to Use

The combination of Frownies' wrinkle treatment Eye Gel Patch and Immune Shield active vitamin E serum, will help improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots and discoloration*. Use your first set of Eye Gels three night in a row for 15 to 30 minutes, then use them once a week for best results. Just before applying make-up for a special event is a good time to do a 30 minute treatment as well. (keep Gels moist with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator between usage)

My inspiration to become a pharmacist
My story begins over 27 years ago as a Saturday girl in my local pharmacy. Fascinated by the rows and rows of amber bottles, I watched person after person come in asking the pharmacist for help on their various ailments and was enthralled as he expertly blended from the amber bottles lining those shelves. 

As a pharmacist I specialsed in herbal medicine but homeopathy changed my life
I decided to study pharmacy and six years later I embarked on my career as a pharmacist specialising in herbal medicine, nutrition and well being with a focus on natural and alternate medicine. It wasn’t until several years later that I discovered homeopathy, a form of medicine that completely changed my life and that of my family.

Homeopathic principles and pharmaceutical grade organic herbal extracts in our skin care
Our skin care is based on homeopathic and herbal medicine with the principles that the quality of the ingredients and the purity of the formulation is paramount as well as the dosage.
Amazing! You have to try The Organic Pharmacy products!

Meet Static Schmatic: all natural anti-clean and anti-frizz solutioins

Hi ya Gorgeous!

I'm in Tucson. It's hot. It's brown. There is plenty of it for the Jael : A Western Tale shoot happening now at Old Tucson Studios.

I was introduced to this brand before I left and love their solution to an everyday problem.
 Meet Static Schmatic!

Get yours on the website here:

Static Schmatic® was created by the mother/daughter team, Kris and Whitney, who live in the picturesque mountains of Aspen, Colorado.

It was a particularly cold winter, and we were entangled with static – on our hair, clothes and kids. There weren't any products we would spray on ourselves, let alone my children (Kris’ grandchildren), so we got to work!

We wanted a solution that was all natural, safe for the environment, odor-free and stylish so we teamed up with a natural chemist who created just that. Each product is different, but they all contain natural ingredients like aloe vera, salt, and coconut oil to name a few. As soon as we found the right formulations, we brought them to the professionals. Local retailers used Static Schmatic for Clothes in fitting rooms, local salons used Static Schmatic for Hair on their clients and our local animal shelter used Static Schmatic for Pets in the “cat room”. Rave reviews started pouring in. Everyone loved the Static Schmatic line!

Turns out, we're not the only ones who needed a natural solution to taming static, and we’re thrilled to share it with you and yours. Static Schmatic products are made in small batches to ensure freshness, and everything from our bottles to our hand-applied labels to our ingredients comes from the United States of America.

Static Schmatic gives you the power to safely battle static in a graceful and stylish way while still breathing the clean air around you. We hope you love it!
