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,

How to hone your truth detector-Danielle-LaPorte

How to hone your truth detector.

There’s so much faking it to make it and deception happening in every sector of life — from politics to self-improvement. So how can we hone our truth detectors?

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

Women, boundaries, and spirituality. The perfect storm.

In my experience, boundary obliviousness is part of the initiation into wholeness. I don’t think you have to warrior your whole life for it, but it’s a passage to self-agency that most women seem to have to go through. Boundaries help us expand our consciousness.

What becomes possible when you say No?

What becomes possible when you say No?

What becomes possible when you say No? What would open up? Shift. Lighten. Crumble. Dissolve. Melt.

Danielle-LaPorte-List-of-things-to-give-up

What’s on your List of Things to Give Up? Here’s a peek at mine.

It’s always a good time to let go of whatever is holding you back. [Astrologically speaking, it’s PRIME TIME to give it all UP.] For your inspiration…

Did you get interrupted on the way to “ideal”-Danielle-LaPorte

Did you get interrupted on the way to “ideal”?

Every “image” I had of my “ideal” life has been interrupted, derailed, splattered on the road to this sometimes way too fucking complicated, patience-of-Job, deeply deep and BEAUTIFUL life that I find myself in. CORRECTION: I didn’t “find” myself here. I made choices to be here –– right where I am. One choice at a time. Every time you choose to go for a “feeling” instead of an “image”, you’re making a courageous choice.

The first step to take when you’re in hell-Danielle-LaPorte-2017

The first step to take when you’re in hell.

It feels interminable. Like you’ll never get out. Like it’s never…going…to…end. That’s the nature of hell. It’s not the pain that drives you insane, it’s the fear that the pain could go on and on.

Danielle-LaPorte-Whats-the-motive

But what’s the MOTIVE? (And BTW, pure motives RULE).

But what’s the MOTIVE? (And BTW, pure motives RULE). Same gesture. Same joke. Same service. Same policy. How can you spot the selfish intention when the branding is so glorious? Or how can you sense the true wisdom when the delivery is so 2000-and tacky? How can you really hear someone when your judgement is clouded by…judgement?

Danielle-LaPorte-its-not-always-self-sabotage

It’s not always self-sabotage. It’s just…what it takes.

Lightwork can be a fight. If you think being on the “spiritual” side of progress guarantees you harmony, then either you haven’t been at it long enough or you’ve been playing it safe. Harmonizing, healing, serving, shining…it’s messy work. Beautiful. Worth it. But messy.

Are-you-tired

Are you tired? Or just really (justifiably) angry?

Of course there are times — perhaps entire years, when we are bone-baked exhausted. But being fed up is not the same as being fatigued. In the seasons when we are vivacious and brimming with life, we can’t let ourselves slip into the reflex of heaviness.

A question for your growth

A question for your growth (that has nothing to do with quick, easy or “proven.”)

Here’s the most powerful question (that we too often forget) to ask ourselves when we’re on the hunt for solutions: “But… what suits me?”
