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,

One of the truest conversations I’ve had - Danielle LaPorte-Audio.

Lies. Truth. Porn. Friendship. Sickness. Motherhood. And softness. One of the truest conversations I’ve had.

Like most humans, on the deepest level, I crave to be known. This conversation is a knowing — one of the truest recorded conversations that I’ve had. Being with my friend Jono Fisher, The Wakeup Project founder, is just…so…deeply comforting.

I think we’re obsessed with protein, and sunscreen, and sameness. And we forget, more tragically than most can understand, that consuming LIGHT is how we grow — in union, and with distinction.

Danielle-LaPorte-Divine-Feminine

Misunderstanding the “Divine Feminine.” And Masculine. And the love between them.

The “divine” in Divine Feminine is about wholeness. It’s where The Great Father and The Great Mother are unified. And that divinity then expresses itself through a feminine energy vehicle, upholding and emphasizing the key qualities and interests of the feminine.

Naïve vulnerability vs. Awake vulnerability. Naïve vulnerability wants to be saved. Awake vulnerability is saving herself by respecting her Truth.

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos-Danielle-LaPorte

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos…and other things to weed out of your life.

Women and feminine-identified types specialize in beginnings, not endings. We prefer to nurture, not exclude. This of course is spectacular and divine and… challenging. Because destruction is essential to creation. Something has to die for your dream to be born. And by that I mean… you may need to cut off it’s life/lie supply and send it down the river to die.

People, dogs, pigeons, were passing by his intimacy.

Danielle-Laporte-My Very Personal Hurt

My Very Personal Hurt, Suffered, Cried, Tanked, Flopped, Crawled, Begged for Mercy List. May it bring you comfort.

My very personal hurt, suffered, cried, tanked, flopped, crawled, begged for mercy list. May it bring you comfort. Because here’s what I know for SURE: You are never the only one. And there’s always a way through. Always.

Collective-Pain-Danielle-Laporte

Are you feeling the “collective pain”? Here’s how to manage that…

A lot of us are experiencing our own personal pain AND tapping into global, collective pain at the same time. We’re marching, or emphatically not marching. We’re crying in the kitchen, out of the blue. We’re heavy with emotion by noon.

My loves, it’s critical that you let the pain move through you. You have to keep letting it go. And like, there’s no need to worry about being too detached from what’s going on. Because there’s new pain arriving daily. If you’re awake you will hurt. I’m with you…in profound agony over the state of the world. And, my faith and resolve are brighter than my doubt and stronger than my grief. It’s an hourly practice to find that balance.

Danielle-LaPorte-How-to-be-yourself

How to be yourself…when you can’t really be yourself.

“Just be yourself.” Most common self-help sermon ever. I’ve been preaching it for years. Except…being yourself doesn’t always work. Sometimes it’s dangerous. Sometimes it’s not worth the frustration or the futility.

Danielle-LaPorte-Having-Faith-Audio

There is nothing passive about “having Faith.” (And how to deal with doubt).

Faith is the “work” in “Light work”. It scrubs and rinses and steadily erases doubt. Faith stays on doubt’s ass: I see you. I dissolve you. I replace you with Faith. And then doubt will pop up again. And Faith is right there: Yep, I heard you. I choose faith. Yep, I know the odds, I choose Faith. And because Faith knows the natural order of things, she says to doubt: You’ll probably be back later this week. And you might even distract me. But I’ll still choose Faith. No anger, just clarity. No complaints, just pure, fiery resolve.
