Five things you should ever do, if you want great skin!

According to an article by Rachel Zoe, women or men with great skin never do these five things: 

  1. Pick their skin.
  2. Lets their accessories or anything touch their face. 
  3. Go to bed with makeup on. 
  4. Skip using SPF on their skin. 
  5. Drink coffee ☕️ first in the morning. 

How many of us are doing these things? 🙃🙃🙃🙃 So, if we wish to have great skin we should stop these bad skincare habits. Check out the article and lets talk about it. Leave me a message.

New collaboration featuring Jeffree Star & Manny MUA

It’s as if the makeup stars have aligned and our favorite or foe makeup ken dolls have joined forces for a major takeover of a female dominated industry. More kens of the makeup world are gaining attention for their application slays. They have transitioned into social media darlings. 

Watch for your self ~~~~~~>Who are they? 

Supreme Court case ruling today changes the “general standard” of educating students with exceptionalities in American public schools.

  • Today’s court ruling by the Supreme Court has significant changes in the education of students with disabilities in American Public School.
  • School districts in America, can no longer offer  “the ‘merely more than de minimis’ test applied by the 10th Circuit.”
  • This new ruling is a win for parents with students with disabilities.
  • It makes having an IEP (Individual Education Plan), that goes beyond the mere basics of educating a child, but one that “must aim to enable the child to make progress.”
  • Understanding of the Supreme Court Case.

This case is significant for parents with children with disabilities; such as myself, who aim to have standards and goals that meet the needs of the whole child.

Take some, “me time,” for yourself! 

​I am tired. I need a vacation and Spring Break isn’t here fast enough. My students are all cranky with colds and such. My husband is working my nerves and my son is the only person who is doing what’s asked of him. Soooooo, I am in need of some, Me Time! How do you carve time out for yourself? 

  1. I gave my husband time for him and my son so I can escape to see a movie and grab a salad at my favorite place in New Orleans. 
  2. I travel far enough so I can take a long drive sight seeing in town.
  3. Go to A book store or music store and browse through the store. 
  4. Get a coffee or tea from Starbucks. 
  5. If you are an educator, take your planning hour and take a drive and escape for the hour, but go back to work 🤣
  6. If you are a single parent, take the kids on an adventure and tour the city and find free places to visit and take selfies of your trip.

Daylight savings time and everyone is cranky

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. We lose an hour and it will take us a few days to recover. While most of us are struggling. I realized this morning that our kids struggle to most. They are already cranky risers. When we take an hour of their time it truly is a nightmare. Stay strong parents, have a cup of coffee and push through🌺

Happy Sailing,

What is true highlighting?

Are we highlighting the correct way? According to Wayne Goss, we are doing it all wrong. We are supposed to bring out the good parts of our features and not just highlight the cheekbones. I am posting the video for your pleasure. I have watched it and it has improved my application style.

Also, here is another video from David at Sephora. He speaks of good highlighting that is not over done. He compares and contrast the different kinds of highlighters. Love that.
