Face Mask

For those of you looking to save money and totally confused on what to buy with the billions of face products out there, I have an answer to your prayers! LOL. I tried this face mask at home and it did wonders on my face after the first application!

1 Cup of Vanilla Yogurt
1 tbs of Honey

Blend the strawberries and pour into a cup, mix in the yogurt and honey and stir together. (What I found is that the cup of yogurt was too much, you can eat 1/4 and use approximately 3/4 to make your face mask LOL!) Then apply the mask to your face and leave on for about 10 mins and then rinse off. Your face will feel totally brand new! And this will end up costing you no more than $8 bux!!

I used about 5 strawberries, 3/4 cup of yogurt and the honey and I have enough face mask for about 2 weeks, maybe even longer! I am very picky and a harsh critic of face products so trust me this remedy gets the stamp of approval! So go ahead and try it and do let me know what you think.

Fierce woman in Time

From time to time I like to spotlight different woman in history who inspire me and make me proud to be a W-O-M-A-N. This month I would like to spotlight the exotic beauty Ms. Josephine Baker (June 3rd, 1906 to April 12, 1975). Most people might know of her for the infamous banana skirt outfit she wore for a performance in Paris in 1927. Here is a little bio I found on her website:

Josephine Baker sashayed onto a Paris stage during the 1920s with a comic, yet sensual appeal that took Europe by storm. Famous for barely-there dresses and no-holds-barred dance routines, her exotic beauty generated nicknames "Black Venus," "Black Pearl" and "Creole Goddess." Admirers bestowed a plethora of gifts, including diamonds and cars, and she received approximately 1,500 marriage proposals. She maintained energetic performances and a celebrity status for 50 years until her death in 1975. Unfortunately, racism prevented her talents from being wholly accepted in the United States until 1973.

What inspires me about this woman is that she dropped out of school at the age of 12 and lived on the streets, eating food from garbage cans and sleeping in cardboard shelters. She would perform on the streets which is where she was discovered and recruited at age 15. She later traveled to Paris to perform and became an instant success, appearing almost nude on stage and tantalizing the audience with her exotic dancing. Not only did she grace Paris with her presence but her style also represented one aspect of the "Art Deco" fashion that was popular at the time.

She was the most successful American entertainer working in France in her prime. In addition to being a musical star, Baker also starred in three films which found success only in Europe because of how prominent racism was in America at the time. The three films are Siren of the Tropics (1927), Zouzou (1934) and Princesse Tam Tam (1935). Now if that's not FIERCE I don't know what is!! So I wanna take this time to salute Josephine Baker for her charisma, her originality and for the legend that she became!

Stay Healthy on the Inside

I saw this ad in the newspaper for a Lecture on the discussion of staying healthy and living well in recognition of National Nutrition Month. (I didn't even know March was National Nutrition month...)

So I decided I am going to attend the lecture next week Tuesday (March 24th, 2009 - 6 pm to 7:30 pm) at NYU Langone Medical Center. I am really looking forward to joining in on the discussion. The benefits of healthy nutrition, yoga and new exercise techniques are all up for discussion. The presenters are Jennifer Crum, MS, RD, Supportive Services Program, NYC Clinical Cancer Center and Laurelle Kilmartin, DPT, CLT-LANA, CSCS, Senior Physical Therapist.

I am currently in the mental preparation stage of changing the way I eat and adding exercise to my daily routine so that I can practice a more healthy lifestyle. And YES I DID say mental preparation stage! :-) We are talking about changing years and years of not so good habits that I have adapted through out my life time!

If anyone is interested in attending let me know and I can give you the RSVP information.

Legalize it?

So I'm hearing that California is considering legalizing weed to help its ailing state budget. I don't know the details as yet of how this would be enacted, but my first thoughts are it's very hypocritical! All of a sudden its okay to legalize weed just for the sake of making money for the state?

What message does this send out to our children? Isn't this the same as the common drug dealer selling for profit? How is it now okay because the government can profit from it?

What are you thoughts?
