Glamping?

“glamping” — glamorous camping...a heady mix of glamour and the great outdoors

Hello Ladies...I know this is a bit off topic but, so many of my readers ask me for advice on make-up and beauty products for when they go camping . Lip-gloss ,sun screen,tinted moisturizer,waterproof mascara and my favorite camping tip Ojon Rub-Out dry shampoo offer some solution-for us glamour girls who have a rough time roughing it ! But what if there was a way to redefine roughing it — to head out into the wild in style?

Most of us really enjoy the concept of camping — sleeping under the stars, becoming one with nature, toasting marshmallows over the campfire — it’s the reality of the situation that keeps the masses from pitching their tents (think showerless days with dirty feet, slurping down lukewarm beverages, and having to answer nature’s call, in nature)

Thanks to a new batch of luxury camping (or, “glamping” ) We don't have to . I have found some amazing outdoor locations around the globe equipped with fine china, luxury bedding , spa treatments and personal chefs

Who says you have to go to the spa to spoil yourself?

Spa treatments like facials and manicures can help you de-stress and relax you (until you see the bill,that is!) Splurging on luxurious treatments is FUN once in a while , most of us can't afford it all the time. Who says you have to go to the spa to spoil yourself? You can re-create a relaxing ,stress free environment in the privacy of your own home. Making your own beauty products is easier than you think. Using natural product feels better (no chemicals) you know exactly what your putting on you skin! You can create everything from masks to shampoos. Light candles put on some music and get gorgeous at the same time : )

Here a couple recipes you can try -

Avocado Cleanser

1/2 c. milk
1/2 Avocado peeled and mashed
mash mixture with until you have a thin cream or lotion consistency

Kiwi Cleanser

1 tbsp honey
1 tsp almonds (ground)

line a sieve with a cheesecloth
set the sieve over a glass bowl
pour the cucumber puree through the sieve
and let stand 15 minutes
pour the clear juice into a clean bottle and add the honey
shake well

Shampoo
1 oz olive oil
1 egg
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Combine in a blender . Use like regular shampoo(discard leftovers)

All of these recipes can be kept in the fridge for up to 1 week except the shampoo

The perfect gift for Mom

Perfect Mother's Day Gift for Mom

A good eye cream can restore the delicate skin around the eye , improve elasticity and make the area smooth and soft. Most wrinkle creams may work for wrinkles on your face but NOT around your eyes,leaving the most important area neglected. It is the first area to show aging and often the last area we care for.
