Bye Bye Dry!

Hey gorgeous goddesses!  Is the summer heat wrecking your beautiful locks?  Does your face feel like rawhide?  YIKES!   Let’s take care of that lickity split. Here are a few of my fav products and homemade facial masks for INSTANT HYDRATION!   You may find most of the ingredients in your fridge or pantry right now!

WATCH WEBISODE:

One more thing I swear by is spritzing ROSE WATER on my face during the day to keep the skin moist!  Aside from moisturizing externally, the smell of rose is offers a soothing property to the nerves and emotional /psychological state of mind.  AMAZING AROMATHERAPY!  So hydrate your skin and make yourself happy at the same time!  Win- win!   You can get this brand by Heritage Products at any Whole Foods.

If you have a fab homemade facial that you love- please share it with us!

Say Bye Bye Dry!  See Ya!

Little Birdie Reminders:

  • Have you entered to win the SOS Beach Bag Giveway filled with fabulous products by www.salerm.com?
  • How are you looking and feeling from the Slimmer Summer Shapeup?  We’ve rec’vd a few kickbutt photos of you gals making major progress!  KEEP IT UP!
  • Have you set any goals you want to share or have you created a vision board?
  • NEVER ABANDON YOURSELF TO PLEASE ANOTHER (Mastin Kipp) This is the worst kind of abandonment. Today, let’s not worry about the opinion of others. Let’s not give our power away because we feel we need the approval of other people.  Say YES to ourselves, and NO to the world, if need be…and not feel bad about it!

 

WHAT’S UNDER YOUR CLOTHES?

WATCH NEW WEBISODE  (Beware, if you have a young son hanging around the computer…you may want to watch this when he’s not around)

You know I LOVE talking about clothes, shoes, accessories and all that jazz, but what we have on UNDERNEATH our fabulous outfit is just as important.   The undergarment business is huge with more selection than ever!

  • In order for your tops to fit their best, you must wear the appropriate bra! 
  • For that beautiful dress to flow just right on your hips and accent the silhouette, you should wear Spanx or some sort of Shapewear.  
  • For low-slung jeans,  you should wear panties that lay flat on your skin and have a lower rise in the crotch. 
  • For the sundress that you can’t wear a bra with, you have a few options for self-adhesive covers.

Our bodies, our boobies and our booties come in all shapes and sizes so find what works best for you!   I’m giving you a rundown of my fav’s and what works for me.   As I always say, “take it all with a grain of salt” because what works for one does not work for all.  If you have found a fabulous bra or lingerie piece, PLEASE COMMENT + SHARE WITH US!

P.S…

How are you doing on the Slimmer Summer Shapeup?  The 4th of July is around the corner.

Did you dust off your goals or start a vision board?

Have you entered to win the SOS Summer Beach Bag full of Salerm Cosmetics, my sister’s oil- Corpus Dei and and MORE!!!  If not check out the blog post from June 1st.



ANNOUNCING THE SOS BEACH BAG GIVEAWAY!

Are you as excited as I am that summer has arrived?  To kick it off,  we’re creating a monstrous SOS BEACH BAG to give to one fabulous SOS fashionista!

WHAT’S INSIDE THE BAG?

  • A bottle of my sister’s exclusive essential oil based parfume called CORPUS DEI.  Her very own creation!   During the summer it’s great to wear an oil instead of a heavy alcohol cologne/parfume because our body temp’s are constantly changing going from the heat of the outdoors to the A/C indoors.  Don’t you notice your parfume turns funny on your skin in the summer?  Try an essential oil instead!
  • Several products from SALERM COSMETICS including an awesome SPF 20 body spray, UV hair protector and fun summer nail polish colors!

  • PLUS, the Super Greens & Maca Powder that I’ve been raving about, Voluminous Waterproof Mascara, a great summer read and MUCH MORE!
  • We’ve added a great fun, summer read by http://www.deborahcloyed.com called “The Summer We Came To Life” recommended by my sis.

MEET THE FAB JENNIFER MEAUX! WINNER OF THE SOS SWAG BAG

Jennifer is a true inspiration and the epitome of a woman who “HAS IT ALL”!   This blonder stunner is 38 years old and resides in Crosby, TX (which is a stone’s throw from my hometown) with her hubby, Dan of 14 1/2 years and 2 beautiful daughters,  ages 14 and 8.

BE INSPIRED…

What do you like to do?  Career and hobbies?

In December, I left my career of 15 years as a Sales Manager for an Industrial Firm in the petrochemical industry to stay at home with my family and help Dan in our restaurant here in Crosby, Crawfish Shack.  We are incredibly blessed to have a booming business and are doing what we enjoy in life!  It’s a seasonal business (Jan-June), so July-December we enjoy some family time, real estate ventures, traveling, RVing, exercise, ATV’s, just about anything in the sunshine and together!


How do you add a bit of style to your life everyday? 

I try to take time for myself each day to look and feel pretty…it’s important for me and my husband.  I am very passionate about my skin care.   My personal style is usually sophisticated, but feminine and sweet.  Accessorizing is fun!  And being from the South…you know just the right hair style is always important!


CONGRATS JEN!   She won a Swag Bag filled with several of my fav things like Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30, Voluminous Mascara, OPI Nailpolish, Voluspa Candle, Louis Hay Power Thought Cards…and more!  PLUS, a whopping $125 worth of fabulous SALERM NY hair & beauty care products!


Jen’s life reminds me of one of my fav songs by Sugarland, “I ain’t settlin’ for anything less than EVERYTHING”!     If you haven’t heard it..here’s the video!  The lyrics are awesome!


If you’re ever in Texas, just South of Houston off of I-10, stop by CRAWFISH SHACK (during season, of course)
