For beautiful eyes,
look for the good in others
For beautiful lips,
speak only words of kindness
And for poise,
walk in the knowledge that
You are never alone

Audrey Hepburn

Summer is upon us.  Yes, it is time for bar-b-ques, beaches, fun, vacations and warmth.  We deserve it, don't we!  It is also time for bad hair days, complaining because it is too hot or too humid, too much sun... 
but wait, weren't we just complaining about the cold and snow?

It really is all a matter of how we view things isn't it?  I know that I am glad it is summer.  After all, if I get too hot, I can find air conditioning and cool down.  No matter how hot I feel, the heat does not have to be shoveled away after putting on layers and layers of insulation.  
Yes, summer is welcomed!

Enjoy the moment, whatever moment you are in.  Look for the good.  This quote by Audrey Hepburn is thought provoking and holds so much insight.  

Even if there is someone in your life who is offensive, or rubs you the wrong way, you can lighten that negative impact on your life.  Looking for the good in others helps is a good thing and you will be more beautiful for it!  We are all created in his image, he has put good in every one. Yes  you can find the good if you choose to, then the words of kindness are there for you to offer.

Everyone loves encouragement.  When we offer words of kindness, we offer encouragement and take part in affirming another’s self-esteem.  Oh, how that not only helps them, but you too!  How good do you feel after you see someone smile knowing that you just lifted their countenance?  It lightens up both of you.

To be beautiful, see the beautiful in others and let them know it!  

Always remember, you are never alone!  All you need to do is hold on to the hand of the God who loves you and sees the best in you.  

 Nevertheless, am continually with you; you hold my right hand. Psalm 73:23 ESV

For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isiah 54:10 ESV

May your day be beautiful !

Winter Wonderland...again?

There are many of us this year that have been experiencing a good deal of snow and cold weather.   As pretty as it can be, I wonder, if like me, you are feeling enough is enough already!   As the sun always shines after a storm, Spring will follow the winter and arrive soon.  After all, aren't we always amazed at how quickly time passes?

Winter weather is tough on your skin; between the outside elements and the heat in our homes and offices, it can all have a major effect on our skin.  You really need to be nourishing and hydrating your skin with ingredients that offer hydration and then make sure you are also protecting as well.  After cleansing, toning and moisturizing, adding a good foundation with nourishing ingredients will protect your skin as well as cover any imperfections and make you feel more confident. 

Here you can answer questions about your skin and get a customized list of what will be best for your skin.  This Skin Care Analysis will customize for you according to your skin type and any symptoms you might have. While you are there,  you can always add some Cashmere (Mineral Lipstick) to warm up, or. you can wait a few weeks to see the newer spring Long lasting Moisture Rick shades coming out.  There is nothing like a new lip color or eye shadow to cheer me up!  

Whether you are enjoying a winter wonderland, wishing you had a winter wonderland, or just wishing it would end, it is always encouraging to add something to your routine that will inspire that timeless beauty within!   God Bless.

Summer is upon us!

Ahhh, the dog days of summer; those lazy, hazy, crazy days...say what?  Our lives are busy as always, summer or not, aren't they!  Kids are home, we want to do things and see everyone.  Time just keeps whizzing by no matter what the season.

We need to protect our skin and our hair as we are out and about.  Our daily routine needs to be simple so we can do it fast.  It is not so hard, cleanse, tone and moisturize every morning, then protect!  I love this sunscreen, it is a product I am not afraid to apply to my face.  Spectrum SPF 50+   (depending on which moisturizer I use, and how much I will actually be in the sun, it may be in my foundation)
Cellular Laboratories® De-Aging Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+
Next my Brown Sugar Creme Eyeshadow (my personal favorite when I am trying to make it all happen quickly), mascara, a brushing from my browkit,  and I am ready to run out the door, lipshine in hand.  Quick and simple, great start to a full day, whether I am running around all day or lazing around, a hat on my hair I am protected and glowing.  

Now, to keep my cool, a spritz of makeup setting spray, which may be found in my purse at any time to refresh me if I am feeling the heat (yes, it actually lowers your body temperature)  All and more available from  

Enjoy your holiday weekend, enjoy your friends and family.  As you go out to barbecues, watch parades, enjoy the beaches,  boating, parks, or what ever you are doing, keep your cool and remember the great nation that we celebrate next week and the work the founding fathers did to get our freedom and liberty.

Skin Care

Skin Care
What is your skin care regime?  Do you have special needs or concerns?  No matter what your skin type, you need to  use a toner following your cleanser.  Cleansing you skin changes the ph of your skin.  Not to be scientific with you, using toner will bring your ph back to normal so that your skin will be better able to absorb your moisturizer.

If you visit www, you will be able to take a free skin care analysis with recommendations based on the answers you give to your skin.  We also have kits available that give you a discount on packages such as a 29% savings on Timeless Prescription® and Skintelligence®     Value Kit (which pulls several top recommended products from two of our lines) or 22% for Cellular Laboratories® Value Kit. 

What I love about our skin care is that they are made to synergistically work together, even if you pull from different lines.  I personally use Cellular Labs De-Ageing Crème at night and Lumiere de Vie during the day. 

So, back to skin care and the “how to”…you need to cleanse, tone, moisturize and use sun block EVERY DAY.  The burning effects of the sun (uvb rays) will penetrate glass, which means, even if you are in your care, you are setting yourself up for “sun damage” no matter what your age.  If it is not in your skin care or foundation, you need to add it to 
your skin care regimen. 

Summer is upon us, take good care of your skin and it will take care of your beauty timelessly.

We are currently visiting Knoxville TN where our son is attending Johnson University.  It is encouraging to come here from the northeast where we recently had two feet of snow. 

 As we drive along the roads, near and in the Smoky Mountains, it is beautiful.  I have seen hints of pink on trees and daffodils in bloom...a picture of what lies ahead for us in NY.

After winter, thoughts of the renewal of Spring is lovely and encouraging.  Spring is a gift!  God has given us so many gifts and the changing seasons is one.  Spring is refreshing and a good time to come out of hibernation.  

For some, like myself it is a time to refocus on how I fuel my body and how I use up the fuel I put into it.   I look forward to leisurely walks, energetic walks, but most of all spending time out in the beautiful world God has given me to enjoy! 

As I start to enjoy the outside, work to be more fit (reminding my self of my one word for the year is Intentional) I will intentionally be making decisions for making my beauty to come from the inside out.  My prayer is for inward beauty to shine as I make choices in life this spring.
