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 you listen is how you live. (A poem for being of service.)

You may hear this as an order, an invitation, or as the opportunity of lifetimes.

How you listen is how you live.
Can you hear the women crying?
Can you hear the soil gasping for clean air?
And did you hear that? That’s the sound of a good man asking, How can I serve?

How do you serve?

Danielle-Laporte-Gift-Transaction

So, is this a gift, or a transaction? Because…your entire life is not a business deal.

I’ve been thinking a lot about transactional giving these days. I’ll tweet about you if you tweet about me. They owe me a favour. You listen for five minutes to them so they’ll listen when it’s your turn to talk. Even Stevens. Transactional giving can be a beautiful commerce of support, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that interplay. But if all of our giving is to secure our getting…then, well, it’s gross.

Danielle-Laporte-Love-the-egg-you're in

Love the egg you’re in. (This is not a sermon on patience. But…)

Savour the simplicity of your pre-dreams-come-true time. Love the egg you’re in. Because not too long from now–and right on time, you’ll be spreading your wings and life will never be the same again.

Rock your emptiness

Rock your emptiness

But what if we rocked our emptiness? Felt the perimeter of ourselves. Relished the silence. Made friends with the peace that’s always waiting for us. What if we got off on the discomfort of our emptiness and let it be creative tension?

Whats-Underneath-Wishful-thinking

What’s underneath wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking is tangled up with craving. We want what we want. So we ignore the evidence that we’re very likely not going to get what we want out of a situation. Craving… wishing. Craving… denial. Craving… tolerating. It’s a wishous cycle.

danielle-laporte-manifesto-for-creativity

Don’t worry about being invited back. My Manifesto for Creativity.

Meaningfulness. Reveal myself. Be compassionate. Don’t worry about being invited back. Go there. xo. I jotted this down when I began writing my book. I wanted a manifesto and it had to happen quickly because…I had a book to write.

danielle-laporte-life-is-what-happens-on-the-way-to-the-finish-line-featured-2x-456x456

Life is what happens on the way to the finish line.

If you’re not loving what it feels like between your various life destinations, then get off the ride. Burn the itinerary. Fuck “motivation” and be still long enough to find your inspiration.

Danielle-Laporte-Let-the-Love-in

Let the Love in. Because, “It’s an honour to help you.”

I was in a spiritual tizzy — that’s an esoteric term for 80% emotions-running-wild, and 20% having faith that everything will work out. I can’t remember what it was over (probably divorce papers, or a publishing contract, or buying a house. But it involved documents and beaucoup emotion.)

what-to-do-after-the-breakthrough-danielle-laporte-social-2-2x

What to do after you have a breakthrough. (You’re going to shrink after you expand, so, listen closely.)

Threshold, crossed. You got there. After the grinding, the repetitive strain, the cord-cutting, the screams of release, the bliss of relief — the training paid off. Muscle burn got you across the finish line. Soul fire resurrected you. BREAKTHROUGH.

jerk-final

Why jerks show up in your life.

We attract jerks to burn karma — old agreements to be broken in current time, vows to be rescinded, slates to be wiped clean. We attract jerks for contrast — jerks show us what deception and manipulation feels like. They show us how we DON’T want to feel — which is excellent intel for knowing how we DO want to feel.
