GET VEGUCATED.

26 Jan

This Documentary has changed my relationship with food.  A lot of people are hesitant to have the discussion about animal cruelty surrounding the food industry, or even open themselves up to investing in discovering the facts around our consumption of animals because I think we all instinctively  know what the truth is. I was one of those people.  There is less guilt attached to ignorance. Please be open to viewing this movie and let it inspire you to make “better choices”, like I always say “better” not “perfect”.  Learn what products to invest your money, and what to put in your body. Even if that will continue to be meat and dairy.  And after viewing this incredible film, motivate others to make “better” decisions and pay this movie forward,  in particular to those you love.

Thank you for being open, brave and compassionate.

STRAND MARNIER

This summer spritzer is just what your golden locks thirst for. Celebrity colorist Kyle White of Oscar Biandi Salon in New York (who’s clients include Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba and Charlize Theron ) says the most natural way to brighten your blonde is by mixing a cocktail of half organic lemon and orange juice in a spray bottle. Just mist before you go out and party in the sun for a warmer, luminous, golden glow. This “neat” hair drink will lift your coif’s “spirits”!

BRANDON’S FABULOUS BEAUTY TIPS

I Should’ve Had A…

The only thing green about your highlights or blonde hair should be the envy of others! It is actually Copper (as well as other nasty chemicals) found in your water that can alter the blonde color molecules in your mane. Leaving them ashy and dull. Celebrity colorist Negin Zand (whose clients include blonde bombshells such as Jennifer Anniston, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon) recommends massaging a can of V8 in your tresses. Lather as if you were shampooing and let sit for a few minutes. The red pigment in the tomato juice will warm up those gloomy golden locks. Tomato juice contains citric acid, like what is found in oranges and lemons, so be sure to condition after your concoction! This is the only time you should avoid going green.

CORK-SCREW CURL(ER)S

Quit “wining” about your straight,  limp hair! It’s easy to achieve wild swirls with left over corks. Just pull up a section no wider or thicker than that of the topper. Place the bottle stopper half way down the strand. Wrap the end around a couple of times. Then twist to the scalp and secure with a bobby pin.  So put a cork in it, for full bodied and robust ringlets!

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!

Fit & Fabulous by Michael Terry ChapmanBy Michael Terry Chapman

If you ever find yourself  judging your physique and your physical looks, ask a child to draw a picture of you! Our talented nephew Michael Terry Chapman clearly does not judge or see my close set eyes or scarred chin.  He is very generous with my biceps and I love the nose! He captures my grin really well and I’m thankful for the natural looking highlights.  LOVE THAT KID! And I love that kids help us love ourselves.
