Happy Halloween

31 Oct

Hello Hue Lovers!!

I understand that the devastation of Hurricane Sandy has us all shaken to the core, and has been life changing for many. For those who have lost loved ones, possessions or even just power, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am praying that you all come out of this safe and sound. For those fortunate enough to have power, do not hesitate to open your arms to friends and neighbors who may not be as fortunate.

Today is a day that has always been a celebration for children, teens and even some adults!! Halloween is a fun and light hearted holiday that allows us to let our imaginations free. For those who can, please take the time to enjoy this day. Dress your children, siblings, cousins etc. up and have fun. Try trick or treating or just enjoying the outdoors while there is still daylight!!

Just a few tips for today:
1. Trick or treat during daylight and stop to head home before dark. Many street lights are still out and power lines are on the ground. This is a safety hazard.

2. If you are driving around try and wrap up before dusk because many traffic signals are out.

3. It has been very chilly since yesterday, so be sure to layer before going out.

4. HAVE FUN!!

What are your plans for today?

Thanks for reading. And remember….

Tuesday Tip: Talk That Talk

25 Sep

Hello Lovers!

Today I’m giving you a quick Tuesday Tip about one of my fave body parts…. LIPS!! We all notice them, whether just staring at a gorgeous pair or talking to someone…they are the spotlight. Lips are a focal point in much human interaction so keep them nice, soft and smooth. I want to leave you with the most important lip tip you will ever get:

Keep your lips moisturized and healthy!!

The first step to any lip look is to have your lips taken care of. Keeping them in good condition sets them up for wearing makeup or just going nude. Keeping them smooth always creates a great base for lipstick or lip gloss to go on smooth and sleek. You don’t want dead skin showing under your lipstick, gloss or tint. As the seasons change and we move toward fall and winter, the possibility of lip damage increases. Wind, cold and dry air are all factors when it comes to lips.

A basic step you can take in caring for your lips is to always keep them moisturized. Find what your favorite moisturizer is and make sure you’re using it!! As I always say, KNOW YOUR BODY, know what kind of lips you have and what products work best for them. Some people like chapstick, some like Sugar lips and some like aquaphor! Whatever works best for your lips….USE IT!! Keep your lips moisturized and you will always be happy with the result.

Biweekly lip scrubs help to keep your lips fresh and smooth without dead skin taking the spotlight. Lip scrubs are exfoliation for your lips….and this is so important, especially when the seasons are changing. Lip scrubs can be purchased or you can make them at home! For those who are looking to purchase a lip scrub The Body Shop has a product called Lip Scuff , Lush Cosmetics carries a lip scrub, Softlips (Drugstores) carries an exfoliating lip polish, and Bite Beauty carries a lip scrub (Sephora) . You can check for these products in store or order them online. For those who want to make a DIY Lip scrub….it is superrrrrrrr easy. Lip scrubs can incorporate many of your favorite items…. there are just a two basics you need to remember:

– You want to have a moisturizing agent in your scrub, so shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil….etc.

– You want to have something that will exfoliate/scrub your lips like sugar, …etc

My personal favorite homemade lip scrub is honey, olive oil  and sugar. Melt the honey(about 1tsp), add a little olive oi(1tsp)l and mix in the sugar(2tsp)….VOILA! Homemade Lip Scrub. I love this mixture because olive oil moisturizes my lips wonderfully, the honey adds a nice shine to them and the sugar is a delicious exfoliant!

Below I’ll post a couple of links that have good homemade recipes, and you can always google ‘homemade/DIY lip scrub for great info.
