Become Yourself

Who you are, teaches Sri Sathya Sai Baba, is made up of three persons.

"There is the one you think you are, the one others think you are, and the one you really are.  Work towards making all three the same,’" he urges.  "Then there will be peace and bliss."

Colorful Contrast

Winter is rather gray. It's as if the color palette has been drained to a monochromatic world of blah. So brighten up the world with some colorful and bold makeup. The contrast will make you stand out in the crowd, and might just lift your mood.

Beauty refreshed

Refresh is the theme for January, so while you are organizing your closet, how about renewing your beauty products as well? Throw out old lotions, makeup, and oils. Have a good product that isn't right for your skin or hair? Trade with a friend. Or experiment with making your own products. There are many natural and inexpensive ingredients you can use to replace chemical-laden products from the store.  Raw honey makes a wonderful moisturizing mask, and sea salt is a healing and effective exfoliant.

Five minutes with your skin

We have so many things grabbing our attention, we often neglect to take care of our skin- especially when the weather is cool and we hardly ever see our legs! Take five full minutes, and moisturize with total focus on yourself. Massage your limbs while thinking loving thoughts about your body. This is all about taking care of You!

Have a partner?
If they're watching you indulge in your skin, they just might want to help with those hard to reach places. ;)

At Home Spa Day

We're spending a little more time at home these winter days and nights. A perfect excuse for luxuriating in comfort and beauty. Turn on some relaxing music, light some fragrant candles, and pamper yourself as if you are at the spa. Take a nice long soak in the tub, and then massage your body with warm oil. Wrap up in a big comfy robe and work on a pedicure, or meditate in a refreshing peppermint face mask.

Follow this link for instructions on making your own easy and natural mint face mask.

Warm & Cozy Beauty Ritual

Turn your ordinary bath into a relaxing beauty ritual. Indulge your beautiful self with some attention and care.  

Bath salts recipe

Turn a plain old soak into a real retreat with bath salts you make yourself. Start with about 4 cups of sea salt or kosher salt. Mix in several drops of an aromatic bath oil (available at bath and beauty stores) and, if you wish, dried fragrant plants, such as lavender or eucalyptus. Pour into a jar for yourself or to give as a gift. Use a few spoonfuls of salts per bath; to keep herbs from floating, spoon the mixture into a spice sachet (available at gourmet grocery stores).

Abundant Beauty

Everywhere I look  I see beautiful things in the world around me.   I have created a beautiful life.   yes, there are things in my life that drive me a little crazy.  there are ugly things in my life that make me feel "ugg"....  but I accept those parts of my life  & shift my attention to the things in life that are beautiful right now.     I can find at least ten beautiful things around me right now.    Sometimes, when I am especially down, I have to look a little closer, or search a little more to find the beauty.   I can ask my spirit to help me.   ---  "please show me the beauty!"    i say.  
ahhh... there it is.
and there.

oh and that is beautiful too.
that leaf, that shadow, that steaming cup of coffee, the music playing in the car, the way this shift feels, the way my eyebrows arch when i talk, the people riding by on their bikes.....

so much beauty around me.
I have a rich, abundant  BEAUTIFUL Life!

let any messages you have ever heard
that were contray to acknowledging your beauty
