my first and only beauty product list

I’m keeping it a bit lite for the summer’s end…here’s my love list of (surface) beauty products–for one time only.

OUTER GLOW
: Renee Rouleau Cleanser. No nasty preservatives. One bottle lasts about a year.
: Renee Rouleau Mint Buffing Beads
: Renee Rouleau Ginseng Toner. I put it in a small spray bottle and use it post cleansing and pre-moisturizing. I also spritz it after I put on my make up to set ma’face and get a glow.
: Escents’ Blemish B’Gone. Best zit-zapper, ever.
: Eminence Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. This stuff munches dead skins cells.
: Dermalogica Sebum Mask. Magic gunk remover.
: Clarisonic cleansing gizmo, If it’s good enough for Gwyneth Paltrow, it’s good enough for us. Deep, buzzy clean.
: Moroccan Oil size of a dime on dry hair = sexy sheen.
: Tweezermans. Must have professional pluckers and lock pickers.
: SonicCare toothbrush. These are pricey but they go on sale often. So worth it.
: Young Living Essential Oils. The best of the best. I use a few drops in my bath and in my air diffuser. I also wear the Frankincense as perfume once and a while. High vibe.
: Voluminous Mascara, L’Oreal. I’ve conducted an extensive experiment and survey for the best mascara. Lancome’s Defincils is a close runner up. Same goes for my search for the best black eyeliner, which is from MAC.
: Lorac’s Bronze Vixen Collection is all that.
: The Body Shop’s Lip Liner in Beech is the best natural lippy shade. Top it with gloss.
: Marcelle eye-makeup remover
is just as effective as the pricey stuff.
: Hemp Hand Protector from The Body Shop. Intense yum.
: Kiss My Face Peaceful Patchouli Body Lotion, is just the right kinda earthy. Second best: olive oil — skin, hair, everywhere.

INNER GLOW
: Crazy Sexy Diet, by Kris Carr is my lifestyle, all good things come from this.
: Emergence C. Jet lag, bugs, fatigue — slam it back.
: E-3 Live BrainOn is light for your brain.

More important than all the potions to your outer glow is getting sleep, regular orgasms, smiling, and veggies.

Philosophical depth and penetrating insight will resume shortly.

Summer Love,

the euphoria of admitting when it sucks

I hear this time and again, “If I just hang in longer… Maybe she’ll come up to speed. It might sell in the summer. If I dig deeper, I’ll learn to love Excel.” Fess up – it ain’t workin’. You’re smart to see it. You’re brilliant if you move on…

Infidelity, sisterhood, and self-respect either way. #Lemonade and Love.

My feelings about infidelity, monogamy and commitment — and how they’ve evolved over time. How I define Divine Fidelity a la David Deida’s 3 stages of relationships. And my deep respect for Beyonce’s art and every woman’s choice of devotion.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Pressed against a star (a poem for longing to be home.)

You are worth waiting for,

And I will open the door for you like our lives depend on it.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.
