Want to try a 24kt Gold Mask for your skin for Valentine’s date tonight? STOP!

TweetIt from HubSpot

Not the time to try a 24kt Gold Facial Mask for the 1st time!

Not the time to try a 24kt Gold Facial Mask for the 1st time!

If you’ve watched the Style channel around the time of any red carpet event, you have no doubt seen the beauty procedures designed for stars before a big Hollywood party. The primping and pampering, massages and facials, fittings and steams. Well, I am here to tell you that one of the best things you can do for your big event tomorrow night is….

NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY~!!!

Yes, that’s right! If you want to look fantastic tomorrow night, the best thing to do is stick pretty much to your usual rituals! Even lay off some of those steps that are likely to cause eruptions or irritations. I know you have been dying to try that new mask, but most masks are designed to eliminate the impurities from your skin and that is not a pretty process to behold! The only healthy way out for impurities in your skin is to come through the surface, causing a blemish… a pimple… a ZIT~!!!

Definitely not what you need for a special night! There are others who crave extra exfoliation today to prepare for tonight or tomorrow – STOP~!!! You may set into motion a sensitivity to abrasion, chemical or even natural ingredients that you didn’t know you had. Consider the 24 hour test for hair coloring… if you wouldn’t take that chance with your hair (or even if you would, you vixen!), do not take the chance with your skin! The results are on a roulette wheel and you never know which way your luck will run. This is NO TIME to discover a brand new allergy, is it?

To look your very best, trust your own wisdom and intuition that you used to set up the routine you were on when you were ASKED out on that date! Save the 24kt Gold Mask for the Friday night of a 3 day weekend you plan to dedicate to spa luxuries. Concentrate instead on a new shade of lipstick, slightly different hairdo, pop of color on your shoes or other unexpected place and… remember that men just love black… They just do… Wear black and an unexpected pop of color to make your night special and draw the attention to you. So just keep being your beautiful, unique self!

If you want a Happy Valentine, Be a Happy Valentine ♥

(This goes for men, too!)

You have a lot of other things to think about besides your skin, after all, don’t you? I promise most men, real men will not even notice the things we women obsess about – that even includes cellulite. We, women would do well to follow suit. And dark chocolate is not only filled with antioxidants, it is also a true aphrodisiac! Have a beautiful Valentine’s Day and let your heart swell with love!

Baltimore, MD Tonight – Funeral for Edgar Allan Poe

TweetIt from HubSpot

"Quoth the raven, Nevermore."

"Quoth the raven, Nevermore."

Tonight, the city my cousin Edgar called home,  Baltimore, MD, will celebrate his 200th Anniversary of his birthday by holding the funeral he never had. Poe’s family, my relatives, his friends, his cousin, Neilson Poe did not release the information to the public that Edgar had died at age 40 in 1849. For that reason, cousin Edgar had modest attendance of about 10 people at a small memorial before his burial. I know I am only a distant cousin, but I feel somewhat responsible and guilty about that and indeed, have seen the tragic patterns of Poe’s life play out through the generations, including early deaths. My dear Grand Aunt Rosie was the last I knew to keep the family tree that has him listed as:

Poe, Edgar Allan: American author.

…though there are proud, rambling paragraphs written about land owners and soldiers. I asked my mother why they had only this to say of him? She looked embarrassed, turned her eyes down to her hands and said that no one wanted to talk about drinking and drugs and the other… They were ashamed. I could scarcely believe my ears and I was very young, just learning in school of Edgar Allan Poe as an author, though my big brother had already read all of his works and tried writing like him.

I asked my mother if she was ashamed of Edgar.

She said, “no, he was very troubled and his own parents didn’t take care of him.”

Really? What do you mean?

They adopted him to “The Allans”, they couldn’t care for him.

Why?

I’m not sure if they were dead or what happened, nobody is, but I think his father was dead and his mother went to England. They were stage actors.

(I wanted to be a stage actor. Gulp.)

There are lots of reasons, dear.

I did not have time to pursue. In keeping with family tradition, there were too many storms at the forefront to look at the aft. Cousin Edgar was a brilliant author. They could have at least injected an adjective besides American. One look at the Chronology of his life will show it is not an easy job to follow the life of the dearly departed Poe.

Baltimore is instead celebrating his birth with the wonderful gift of a proper funeral! The town is abuzz and it’s funny that Boston was supposed to be the warm home of his heart, when clearly it is Baltimore who loves and appreciates him, deserves him. And has all along. Regretfully and stereotypically of our family, I cannot be in attendance. I did have the decency to write, at least, and thank them for the wonderful events they have held and will hold this evening. I assured them that if cousin Edgar could attend, he will. I think he would like that I have conveyed that message. Hopefully, my brother will be able to attend with him. He was his biggest fan and followed in his footsteps to an early grave.

Please be there if you can – why would you miss this if you live nearby?

Anti-Aging – How To Prevent and Get Rid of Under Eye Dark Circles

TweetIt from HubSpot

Make sure your eyes are FABULOUS this Holiday Season!

Make sure your eyes are FABULOUS this Holiday Season!

It’s that time of year again. Time to rush around shopping for all of the holidays! This is exciting and even I can get caught up in it, but there are a couple of things we need to do so we’ll still look great at all the parties!

What causes dark circles under your eyes? Is it from staying up late? Is it from not getting enough sleep? Well, yes, lack of rest can certainly emphasize those shadows under your eyes and even more so, accentuate the puffiness. One of the things that really causes dark circles is consuming a diet or drinks that cycle sugar and salt, sugar and salt. This may be why women tend to have puffy, dark circles during PMS, diet related. Yes, I know…but it’s true.

My response to this logic was that I should eat all sweets or all salt that day. Here’s why that won’t work, yeah, no, it won’t work =( Even something as harmless as chocolate has a great deal of BOTH salt and sugar in it. In fact, most sweets have a very high sodium content. Now, I am realistic and I believe in moderation, that is still the key! But if you begin to see darker than normal circles or puffier than usual eye area, try cutting out something you “know” is slightly evil from your diet. It won’t hurt. I promise =)

Creating your own custom formulations can not only save money, but often is much more effective!

Creating your own custom formulations can not only save money, but often is much more effective!

Topical preparations that contain Haloxyl, Caffeine, Argireline, Cucumber, Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE and Hyaluronic Acid (to name a few, all available in Anti-Aging at ModelSupplies) are wonderful for scavenging away the excess fluids from the eye area and doing a general cleanup beneath the skin’s surface. Combine these ingredients with a controlled diet and reasonable sleep and you will be batting your eyelashes well into the future and no matter what day of the month it is! And, by the way, these approaches also work for men!

BOO~!

Is The Universe Pruning Detroit for New Growth?

fire-aug27-2009

fire-aug27-2009


TweetIt from HubSpot

LIVE VIDEO FEED ~ WXYZ Detroit ABC

I am watching in horror as the sky fills again over Detroit with black, billowing chemical smoke. The source of the fire is the Sterling Oil & Chemical Co. that handles, stores and blends industrial lubricants including hydraulic oils, greases and petroleum products for companies such as Dow and Exxon-Mobil. The flames are threatening to ignite large towers of fuel.

Seen as far away as Ontario, the smoke is overtaking normal air as the cloud-covered area holds it in. Several factors are helpful: no real wind, wind direction is NE directed away from the fuel storage tanks and low temperatures today only 64 degrees F with rain possible. This is the 2nd chemical fire in a week. What’s going on? Petroleum distillate is the chemical that is burning, which is the ingredient in STP and other engine cleaning treatments. So this is quick to ignite and harsh burning. The fire looks the same, really worse, over an hour and a half into fighting it.

There is no word of the cause of this fire as of yet. Immediately, my mind goes to someone’s error whether intentional or accidental. There is no word whether anyone was hurt. The flames overtake the news. There is nothing else happening here. Evacuees interviewed on the news grabbed their families and left their homes out of instinct. No one needed to tell them to evacuate; they just did it. The nearby Amtrak rails are buckling from the intense heat. This fire forces another infrastructure repair for Detroit.

If Detroit is being pruned, what will the new growth be? Hopefully, it will not be more toxic chemicals. I call on my family, friends and neighbors to be inventive and help revive Detroit with new, less harmful industries.
