JUNE 2015 | The Beauty Room

It is absolutely unbelievable that it is JUNE! Where has the year gone? JUNE has always been a month of heavy reflection for me. I check my goals list & check it twice! We are in the middle of the year and it is a great time to sit down & assess if we are going in the direction we really want to achieve the BEST YEAR EVER. That being said...I am so very happy to announce that I will be practicing esthetics at ZEN NEWBURGH the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the summer months! You can look forward to taking a stroll down by the riverfront before or after your facial!

EASY LIKE A SUNDAY MORNING

The Season of Giving Continues | January Special | The Beauty Room

NEW is the hot word for January. Whether it be a new workout regimen, new clothes from holiday gifts or a new job. January is the big reboot month for everyone. 
Getting new things can be good for a change of pace. I mean, who doesn't love werk'in it in a new skirt that hugs them just right or wearing a new lipstick shade that brings life to their face? We all do.

As we get all of this new stuff, how are you making room for it? There are so many things that I bet aren't serving you anymore. As I was going through my clothes last night and cleaning out my makeup this morning I realized how much stuff I haven't worn in ages or haven't used at all.

I participated in a photo shoot last month (that will be featured in Love IT! Evv Magazine, yippie!) called Reuse, Repurpose, Reimagine. We used vintage dresses and some upcycled jewelry to dress the models. One of the former owners of the dresses was so thrilled to let us use the dresses, because although beautiful they weren't serving her anymore.
I want us all to use this concept this month and really all year! Instead of holding on to things we don't use why don't we pass them on to those who can enjoy them & put them to use!

I found a great local non- profit organization called the House of Bread & Peace. They help women get back on their feet and find jobs and homes. I think this is amazing. I am donating new & unused makeup and also gently worn business casual clothes to this organization to help these women have the same feeling that I have when I get dressed, and that's the power to take on the world.
If you would like to join me in donating, bring your gently worn business casual clothing, unused and sealed makeup, boxes of tampons or pads, deodorant, really just anything that a woman would need to get ready for her day. I will give you $10 to use towards your appointment with me! You give, I give, we all give!! And guess what? We all WIN too!! 

So here's to a fabulous 2015 & let the giving season continue!


Other Happenings for January 2015

Products you may want to try this month are : 

SKINCARE: Soap Solutions Perfectly Polished - It's still dry skin season. If you're wondering why the extra moisture you're putting on isn't soaking in, 9 times out of 10 you have flaky dead layers of skin blocking your healthy tissue. The best way to remedy that is with an exfoliator. This all natural mix of herbs & clay is perfect for gently removing dead cells.

MAKEUP : BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed good lord it is one of the most beautiful highlighters I have EVER used! I am obsessed! Give this a good swipe on the top of your cheekbones, right under your brows & on the in corners of your eyes. Be light handed as it is very pigmented! A little goes a long way!


The winner of Makeover Monday is Katie Slepsky!!
You too can enter to WIN a FREE facial or Makeup Lesson HERE! It will be announced the first Monday of each month!


The Happy Chronicles | Mary Allen | 21 Days of Open Letters

After watching an excessive stretch of OWN TV I am now even more obsessed with Oprah. So I thought about implementing more stuff that I am learning from her & her guests.

On her segment with Shawn Anchor on Super Soul Sunday, he suggested once a day for the next 21 days emailing, tweeting, or calling a person you know and basically spending 2 minutes telling them how awesome they are. Not only does it give them a boost, but you as well & can even play a factor in prolonging your life! I am compelled to give his idea a try. I've decided to do open letters on my blog for people that cross my mind. =)


Mary,

 

I can't even begin to explain to you how truly amazing you are. I mean I have tried a lot, but there is just no humanly way to put it in words. You are the most "whole" person I have ever met. You give so much to your family, community & friends! I am so beyond blessed to not only have you be so helpful with my business,  but be such great friend! In such a short amount of time you have touched my heart with all your acts of kindness. I can't wait to see our businesses flourish from the new partnership.

Love,  the black girl that adopted you,
