I tried something new. I usually stay away from pigments and fancy colors but thought I'd play around with it and love how pretty these turned out. These are 50/50 Coconut and EVOO scented with orange essential oil. I'm in love with it!
Man I miss my team ---- ahhh take me back to NOLA! ✌🏽As I sit here reminiscing I was thinking of the fears I had 19 months ago... When my coach invited me to a challenge group and the coaching opportunity.. Fear #1 I didn't believe a woman broken down struggling to live each and every day had a reason to try to speak life into anyone else! I thought my life, my message, my story didn't matter at all to anyone and that I needed to fix me first! Turns out this journey it healed me, changed me, and saved me! I realized my mess is my message and that my story matters! Fear #2i didn't believe you could get results from home workouts. Heck I was a collegiate athlete I know how to workout and doing it in my living room wasn't going to do anything! Hmmmm I ended up losing 35 POUNDS! Plus I'm in better shape now than I ever was in college (sorry coach ✌🏽) Fear #3 I eat ALOT and I don't drink shakes. They are too expensive and I can make my own. Well, I could go on and on about this one. But I gave it a try and within 30 days I was hooked. It's all natural --- no artificial anything and it's more than a protein shake it healed my body from the inside out! Heck before I started I was pre-diabetic! Plus I still eat ALOT but it's ...

Summer Facials? Is it ok to get facials in the summer? Yes. It's actually a great time to get facials. Summer time. We produce more sweat, which is a good thing. But not if we are wearing makeup, which can run. Give your skin a break from heavy foundations and bb creams. Let your natural beauty shine through! We produce more oil which can eeek...the dreaded, clog pores. So seeing your esthetician for your monthly treatment is a great way to keep it in check. However, there are other things to keep in mind when treating you skin in summer months. -a regular deep cleansing with a purifying mud/clay masque will reach deep to draw out impurities. Do every 1-2 weeks depending on skin type. - No deep chemical peels or harsh scrubbing exfoliation before extended sun exposure. This may damage newly regenerated cells. -be diligent with sunscreen, always. (this is a given) Sun exposure 20 mins a day on unprotected skin is actually good for us as it provides a great dose of Vit D... but extended periods beyond that will do more damage than good. You may look great with a tan... but you will see the damage later. Period. - drink more water. This keeps skin hydrated and plump - Infusing the skin with hydrating antioxidant rich serums and products will treat the skin. - if you have oily/acne prone skin don't overdo the harsh products. This is time to treat skin gently. ...
