Comments Off on Pretty Hands and Feet

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Of course fashion mags and department stores are already into fall wardrobe, but really who wants to stash away their summer sandals in August?  Not me.

I love to max out every moment of summer!  In Minnesota, it’s too short a season to contemplate anything else.

It’s still summer so let’s face it, we’re not ready for boots, socks and tights yet. During this barefoot, sandals and flip flops season that we want so badly to last and last, let’s keep up the care of our hands and feet with daily cleansing, exfoliating, and body butter to nourish and soothe. → Read more

Comments Off on 3 Easy Steps to Feeling Gorgeous: Holiday Skincare

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Getting gorgeous this holiday season begins with your skincare for the bath ritual. Ritual means more than a 5 min shower or bath.  A ritual is “a big deal”.  It implies indulging in something absolutely fabulous that, in this case, you create for yourself.  BECAUSE NURTURE YOU TIME IS NOT A LUXURY – IT’S A MUST!

Hey, you totally deserve more than 5 min, so make it happen!

You know what they say on the flight – secure your own mask first…Think of your bathing ritual as a lifesaver, because it just might save you from the holiday bonkers busy craziness!

Make time for a warm relaxing bath to relax and refresh before going out. Get out the candles, fragrant soaps, sugar scrubs, bath melts, a glass of tea, cocoa, wine (whatever you’re in the mood for), and maybe some music.

Think of your skin as the most elegant, carefully prepared canvas upon which everything else rests – your make-up, hair, clothes and fragrance.  Feeling great in your skin is also an emotional thing.  It changes how you feel, move, speak, think, respond, and live your inner and outer lives.  It’s where it all starts.
