Entertaining, Jamie Farr, Organics, healthy foods

This past weekend we entertained (again!) and I've decided 6 people, is the magic number for me, when it comes to entertaining. It makes for wonderful conversation at the table and not an overwhelming amount of work for me.  Because I like to do everything myself, I have a tendency to overdue it.  It's important that what I serve is healthy (well maybe not the

  

 

I seem to do more entertaining in the summer, how about you? Perhaps it's the longer days and the pure pleasure of being outdoors. We recently completed a relandscaping project which hopefully makes our yard more inviting and suitable for entertaining.

I'm always on the lookout for ways to take the stress out of entertaining. Over the years I've learned a few tips. I'm sharing a couple of them in this video.

eye wrinkles, crows feet

I can't tell you how many times I hear, "Kelli, every time I try to use a cream around my eyes, they water, itch, get red--I go into allergic reaction to anything I use around my eyes!"

It's a problem I understand!  I have sensitive eye's too.  They burn when I use almost anything near them.  We have worked hard to come up with with a product the is gentle enough for the delicate skin around the eyes, and yet, is effective in addresses fine lines and dark circles.

 

 

 

The solution:  Introducing NEW Luminous Eye Refining Creme 

The secret to its effectiveness is

When you're trying to cook healthier recipes, one of the best ways to enhance the flavors and nutrition of the dishes you're making is with fresh herbs. Basil is one of our favorites!  Not only is it great to cook with but has numerous health and skin benefits.

Fresh basil is a great herb for the skin because it's loaded with essential nutrients including vitamins A, C and K, as well as manganese, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega-3 fats. 

Fresh basil can also help with acne!Here's a recipe you can make at home to treat acne.

Do you look in the mirror and see dark circles under your eyes? If so, consider increasing the Vitamin K in your diet.

Do you look in the mirror and see dark circles under your eyes? If so, try increasing the vitamin K in your diet--with Kale! 1 cup of Kale packs 684% of the RDA of Vitamin K. 

If you like a morning smoothie for breakfast, like I do, add a handful of spinach or kale and power up the skin saving nutrients!

Today, I boosted my morning smoothie with handful of spinach to the 1/2 banana, 4 large strawberries, 1 tsp. Coconut Oil, and protein powder.  Why? Spinach is a good source of

natural deodorant, probiotic, no underarm odor

This week we're launching our NEW Natural Probiotic Deodorant, Pure Protection. What makes this deodorant different, besides being natural? Simple, it works! Over the past 3 years, I've personally tried at least a dozen different natural deodorants...none worked.

What's the difference between antiperspirants and deodorant?

Most people use the terms antiperspirant and deodorant interchangeably, the two are not the same. Antiperspirants work by preventing perspiration from occurring (with Aluminum). Deodorants allow perspiration, but block odor. Deodorants accomplish this by killing the bacteria that cause odor. From a purely natural standpoint, it makes more sense for us to use deodorants, as it is a more natural process.

Personally, I'm not looking to completely stop sweating.

Decisions

 Are the skincare products you purchase in a Doctors office better?  The short answer...probably not.

After 30 years in the beauty industry, I've seen and heard many stories from women when it comes to their skincare purchasing experiences and habits .  Recently, a client mentioned she had been to her dermatologist for a rash.  Upon leaving, she noticed the doctor sold a particular line of anti-aging skincare. The woman at the front desk suggested she try the products, and my client told her, "I'm happy with my skincare line, it's natural and organic."

"Oh, you should try these, they are more potent and effective than the organic lines." the assistant proclaimed, and the dermatologist concurred.  When my client shared this story with me, I wasn't surprised; inaccurate information abounds.

Most of us don't look this cute while soaking in a nice tub of bubbles, but the look on Ava's face (Granddaughter of my girlfriend Ellen) says it all!  Most females feel as Ava does, there is something so blissfully nice about a bubble bath!

A long soak, with candles, music, and maybe a flower or two, is something I would adore for Valentine's Day, especially if it's being prepared by my husband.  

Valentine's Day is one of those days you either want to ignore or feel totally pressured by - particularly the guys. What is the right gift for our significant other? My husband and I were discussing it this week, in a class called "Marriage Matters"--What are your expectations for Valentine's Day? 

In the class, when asked what our expectations are, the answers were anything from, "I'm not into a Hallmark created holidays," to "Give me diamonds!" But, the bigger question is, "Have you let your significant other know what your expectations are?" Sometimes we women expect men to be mind readers, and Valentine's Day is a test...how well does he know me?

If you're the, I'm not into a Hallmark created holiday type, and your spouse is someone who wants 

2016 skin care goals, healthy living,

1. Decide to have a goal!

Whether you are looking for Rosacea redness relief, or just want to better hydrate your dry, flaky skin, deciding to do something about it, is the first step.  Perhaps you've been unhappy with the results, from the drug/department store products you've been purchasing and have decided 2016 is the year you try something healthier for your skin.

2. Be more Aware! 

Organic is different than Natural.  Beware of companies that use the word "Natural" on their packaging.  Legally, this means nothing—it's a completely unregulated term and is used mostly for marketing. It will generally mean that at least some natural ingredients have been used in the formula, but a product can be labeled as natural and contain significant synthetic ingredients. 

Organic products are highly regulated.  It means they contain a large percentage of ingredients that have been grown and processed under a very strict code of cleanliness, with no pesticides or fertilizers, and absolutely no genetically modified organisms. 

 


Still, nothing beats the memories of holiday shopping and traditions shared with others.

Last minute shopping is both exhilarating and frustrating.  I always try to be "together" when it comes to the holidays, but because it's a busy time of year in my business, I never seem to start early enough. I find myself relying more and more on, on line shopping. It seems I'm not alone. Americans appear to enjoy hunting down deals on their smartphones, tablets and computers.
Some of my favorite holiday shopping memories involve both my daughters, Brianna and Brittany:
