accept, allow, receive…

Outer Beauty:

My all time favorite scent from Voluspa.  This candle smells like warm, melting chocolate and the truffle gives it an elegant finish; intoxicating and delicious.  Prepare to fall in love…

Inner Beauty:

The will of our soul always carves a direct path to our truth.  When we let go and stop doing, is when we’re able to accept, allow and receive.  We do this by calming the busyness of our thoughts and actions.  By allowing this stillness, you’re creating space to receive.  It’s within this space that miracles happen.  Open yourself up to the many surprises life has to offer, and simply be.

loved this entry from a fellow blogger and just had to share it with you… how adorable are these hot cross buns!  This look is a great trick for a day to night style – put your hair up when it’s damp; before you take it down make sure it’s completely dry. When you let your locks loose at night, touch them up with the curling iron and voila, beach-y waves!  Super simple, hip and completely effortless!

1. Day-old hair is best (which is true for most hairstyles, since it’s easier to work with hair that has a little dirt in it).

2. Divide your hair into three equal parts and quickly spray each section with a little hairspray to help give it hold. Let the hairspray set for a couple seconds, and then lightly comb it out.

3. Take the section on your right side, and twist your hair all the way down to the end. You want to twist counter-clockwise, toward your face. Wrap the right section in on itself, just like you’re making a little bun. Let some of the hair stick out, it’s ok (you don’t want them to look like Princess Leia buns).

4. Pin the right bun in place. I like to use these mini bobby pins, since they’re easier to hide and they’re coated in rubber so they hold your hair better.

5. Next, twist the middle section clockwise and pin. Then twist the left section clockwise and pin.

6. Spray the three buns with a little more hairspray, and you’re done!

This is one of my favorite books of all time. It’s so beautifully written; a captivating story of inner beauty vs. outer beauty. I will always remember the first time I read it and  fell in love with Oscar Wilde.

I bought this book immediately after reading The Picture of Dorian Gray and I am still fascinated by these twisted fairy tales.

all you need is love…

Outer Beauty:

Bumble and Bumble Texture invites you to mess with perfection, to craft your own one-of-a-kind, freehand, tousled look.  This gel-creme provides lift, volume, grit and grip.  It gives a dry, matte finish and builds easily with memory and mold-ability.  Start with a small amount on damp hair (a must) and build from there.  Let sit for a minute to dry, then loosen and ruffle.  Apply at roots for extra lift and use a diffuser for more overall volume .  Ladies and gents alike can use this product, all it takes is the right attitude and application, to carve your own path.

 

Inner Beauty:

Love is the fabric of our lives.   Without this one thread, everything would be nothing.  Love comes in many disguises and it’s up to us to unveil each one.  Every person, place, and experience in our life is an opportunity to either create or demonstrate more love toward ourselves and others.  The lesson is in the perfection of how all of these roads intersect and connect.  The next time you’re wondering what you should do or why this is happening to you, remember that as you’re drawing the map of your life you’re leading yourself exactly where you need to be for the path that you’re on.  We’re all connected by love.

the proof is in the pudding…

 

Outer Beauty:

I love these two products by Living Proof. They can be used separately or in tandem; when using both start by spraying the Root Lifting Spray at the roots and scrunching a dime size amount of the Thickening Cream into the ends.  From here you have the option of heat styling or air drying.  Both methods will create lasting body and fullness.  The way I use it is to air dry on towel-dried hair.  It leaves my hair wavy and full of body without being sticky or crunchy.  And for those of you who know me, I’m obsessed with my hair, so you can believe me when I say it really works.

Inner Beauty:

People will always show you who they are, so it’s up to you to listen.  The way you do this is by paying attention to actions, verbiage and body language.  When you pick up on these cues and engage your intuition, you can learn a lot about someone’s true character.  The trick here is trusting the information you’re receiving, then making decisions based on this knowledge.  The following are quick and easy steps for learning how to trust your intuition:

–  Clear yourself of other people’s voices, opinions and thoughts

–  Quiet your mind

–  Be patient and allow the answer to come

 

I promise you this is so simple and it really works.  Learning to trust and listen to yourself are two very, valuable lessons that will change the way you live your life.

first impressions last a lifetime…

Outer Beauty:

A unique treasure in the world of perfume.  This special concoction relies on sandalwood; which is typically a base note in many scents as the sole ingredient and let me tell you, the result is insane! I know fragrance is a very personal thing; trust me, this is one perfume exceptional enough to consider alternating your routine—very sexy and sweetly scented. As a finishing touch on your next night out, spray Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 on the inside of wrist or at the base of your neck—one of my favorite beauty tricks—and you will make a lasting impression on everyone you meet.

Inner Beauty:

First impressions last a lifetime.  People remember how you make them feel, not what you say.  When meeting someone for the first time the goal is to connect and make them feel special; this emotional experience is what they will be left with.  We speed through so much of our lives not appreciating all of the opportunities to interact with others and create lifelong relationships.  Take the time to slow down and make eye contact upon an introduction; during this moment really see the person in front of you by giving them your full attention.  This simple exchange of energy will have a profound and lasting impression.

the tell tale heart…

Outer Beauty:

This is the most amazing, radiance-enhancing concealer! It wipes away shadows, blurs imperfections, and brightens the complexion to a degree that’s hard to put into words.  A great concealer is a cosmetic purchase that’s next to impossible to find; most are either too moist and settle into your fine lines or too dry and… settle into your not so fine lines.  I promise you Giorgio Armani’s High Precision Retouch Concealer is your new best friend.

 

Inner Beauty:

Courage comes from the latin word- cur, meaning heart.  Having the courage to be imperfect and tell who you are with your whole heart, takes a lot of faith and strength.  Faith in yourself; knowing that when you show yourself, even if you’re not fully received you will still love yourself.  The strength comes from  trusting in who you are and the ability to be that person, especially when everyone is looking.  These are acts of courage because it’s these moments that expose everything you’re trying so hard to conceal;  but if you never try, how will you ever know?  And how will anyone ever see who you are unless you show them?

Inner Beauty:

Your intutition is the strongest compass you have on this journey. An easy tip for connecting with and getting more clarity from this inner guide is to, engage your senses and pay attention to the signals your body is sending you. Sometimes, our bodies feel things before our minds can process them. Do some people make you feel anxious, nervous or uncomfortable? While others leave you feeling energized, happy and optimistic? Monitoring your energy while you’re in the company of others is the gateway to awareness. This added awareness is a direct link to opening your intuition. Listen to your body.
