“With Every Stroke”

We as women beautify ourselves on several levels…fashion, spa treatments, hair and most important, our skin. We use such products to make ourselves even more beautiful. Be it natural beauty make up products or those makeup products that reflect our beautiful selves like supermodels from a fashion magazine, the health of our skin should be important to us. And weighing our options to use certain makeup on our skin should be a priority if you are indeed a constant user of beauty products. Promoting healthy skin while beautifying yourself will be discussed.

Makeup That Produces Healthy Skin

With so many women wearing makeup nowadays, with the fact that the health and beauty industry is a booming business, cosmetic companies are listening to their customers and are developing makeup that promotes healthy skin. From lipstick to mascara, the benefits are great for promoting healthy skin (How To Improve Your Complexion with Skin Benefiting Makeup, Erin Lukas, 2016).

Skin Care Tips

If you utilize a mist cleanser to clean your skin, incorporate a moisturizer as well to put moisture back into your skin. A good example would be Body Shop’s Vitamin E face mist at:

Using a sunscreen with SPF is great as well to take care of your skin. Sponging the SPF sunscreen on is said to be best because it helps penetrate deep within the layers of skin. A good example would be “Beauty Blender’s pink oval” at:

Use a “soothing oil” such as jasmine extract that is rich with antioxidants to condition the skin. A product that is dermatologist recommended is “Rodin Olio Lusso” which contains jasmine that gives the skin a healthy look. You can purchase it at: (, 2016). These are just a few steps to take in promoting healthy skin.

Eating Right and Getting Proper Rest

The best regimen to be given is to get proper rest. Equip yourself with beneficial methods to continue to produce healthy looking skin as you go through the aging process. Drink lots of water and eat lots of vegetables. These tips are all ways to promote healthy skin. It can be achieved.

Today’s cosmetic industry has learned from its pitfalls of yesterday with makeup that clogged pores and produced unhealthy skin. The swift change in business these days is the fact that companies listen to their customers. Armed with beauty products in today’s era, we women are most satisfied with the results. It’s what we’ve been asking for, healthy looking skin.

All I Want Is You


Hey, self,
We were given a surprise today,
You’re having a difficult time taking it all in?
I understand,
I know,
But I’m here to let you know that it doesn’t represent who we are,
Growth is coming,
Wait on the hour for continuance in living to come,
Don’t go nowhere, self,
Do you hear me?
Cancel all of your appointments today,
We need to have a carefree mind,
So we can figure out a way to deal with this negative surprise,
After the love is gone from what others used to deliver to your doorstep,
Who do you have always?
The answer is, self,
There is nothing so true within me, except you,
In this lifetime,
I won’t settle for less,
I want certainty,
All I want is you.

Flower Diaries: Multi-Colored Sabbatical


Continuing with the aromatherapy experience from the likes of Bath & Body Works this week, I have chosen a multi-colored flower as the, “Flower Of The Week.”

The name of this week’s flower is called, “The Multi-Colored Sabbatical.” Flowers are one of the natural ingredients found in essential oils which are great for aromatherapy. This week’s flower allows you to escape all the real world mayhem, hypnotizing you at the sight of its assortment of colors. The color of flowers helps us relax as well. The fragrance of flowers are enchanting and leaves us with the feeling of appreciation for one of nature’s captivating things. This is my sabbatical week. And my mind will be on this flower. It’s a reminder for us to remember to take things easy. Pure relaxation this week, my friends.

Childhood Tall Tales: Image


I’m 12,
Mature and impressionable,
I’m not like most children my age,
I see the world with adult eyes.
You ask,
“What do I mean by that?”
I’ve been teased in school. Spirit broken down on a daily basis by those who have a fear of what I represent,
They see confidence, a little girl who is forced to mature on the adult level in order to deal with the brutality of self-image destruction by others,
Be it by little girl or boy,
Be it adult,
I have to deal.

What did you expect to read from these pages?
A fictional story about my life?
No. This is non-fiction which I am all about at the rightful age of 12.
I’m not caught up in fairy tales, monster dreams, or anything to do with playtime,
Because I’ve been robbed of my innocence all because I’m a beautiful flower that people choose to refer to as ugly.
From my big nose,
To my full lips,
To my nappy hair,
I’m a 12 year old caught up in image against my own free will.

Who do I blame for this?
The adults,
From magazines depicting skinny beautiful models with beautiful hair, beautiful lips, perfect noses,
To the exercise gurus who say the average waistline should be “28 inches”,
To the adults that say I will be nothing in my tomorrow because I don’t want to be what they think I should be,

I’m 12,
And I’ve been humiliated,
My pain runs deep,
Deeper than the bottom of the ocean,
I just want to scream!
How can people be so cruel?

I don’t want to blame parents for their child beating my spirit down at the end of every class hour.
With some horrific words that eat away slowly at my soul,
Because, be it child or adult,
You still have a choice in the matter.

Why are my looks so important to everyone else, except me?
See what you’ve done adults?
You’ve confused me with your media race,
From your self-absorbed ads about happiness coming if I get involved in your campaign,
When I’m living as an adult at 12 in sadness,

But I have a grown up mind,
I don’t blame God for this,
Not at all,
Human beings have choices and the free will to do the right thing,
For instance,
In this case,
Stop telling tall tales,

I say,
I know you thought this would be a child’s storybook,
Filled with characters that you can imagine being,
But instead,
You get me.

I don’t know if it makes you happy or not,
To be in the midst with a 12 year old who is totally against the growing campaign that is going on,
What society believes to be true,
You get a 12 year old who chooses to end her thoughts about the negative thoughts and actions of self-made individuals who poisoned half the world’s minds with their narrow-minded opinions.

My testimony stops here.

I’m 37,
A strong woman,
A bipolar survivor,
A mother,
A college graduate,
An author before business owner,
An independent thinking woman who has now set her own standards for what her image should depict to others,
A kindred spirit, fearless,
Encouraging others who have gone through the same,
Don’t ever be afraid to grow up against the odds,
Your spirit is always worthy of fighting for.

The Naked Bee: All Natural Products Made Easy


Omg! I am getting ready for the Christmas selling season on eBay. I’ve been searching high and low for all natural products to offer my customers to continue with the likes of Bath And Body Works, creating a customer aromatherapy experience for my customers. Kathryn’s Scented Gifts will be selling a not to well known product, called, “The Naked Bee.” The company called, The Naked Bee is set up with reps, member accounts, and so on just like the famous candle company called, Scentsy. However, I stopped by a gift shop today and found this unknown, unfamiliar natural product line and fell in love with their scents. Grapefruit and Orange Blossom Honey are my favorite scents. And these are the scents that I plan on selling. “The Naked Bee” product line includes lotions, soaps, candles, moisturizers, and shampoo/conditioner that are all natural, nothing but the good stuff. And none of the bad stuff as the company advertises.


The company was started by a man named, Michael and a woman, named Cindy, partners that wants their last names to remain private, back in 1991. In the beginning, the duo began manufacturing and wholesaling candles and personal care products. They successfully grew their business from the ground up with an aromatherapy product line for many years ( The Naked Bee).

Later years, they introduced a line of products all developed with unique custom blends that was such a big hit with customers that the 2 decided to build a whole company based on it. Michael was the creator of this original line. Then Cindy, in 2004, created orange blossom honey! She came up with a name for the new product line which was of course, The Naked Bee. From there, a new company was born (The Naked Bee

What Makes It An All Natural Product Line?

“All the good stuff, none of the bad stuff.” What does that mean? Well…

“All of the good stuff”

70% organic skin conditioning lotion and moisturizer for hand and body

Shampoo Conditioner with honey and spirulina

Triple milled oatmeal soap with saponified beeswax and guar gum

Organic olive oil, honey and beeswax lip balm

Clean burning 100% paraffin-free palm wax and beeswax travel candle…

“None of the bad stuff”

No propylene glycol or mineral oil
No dyes or pigment
No lauryl or laureth sulfate
Absolutely NO animal testing…ever (The Naked Bee).


Why Should You Give The Naked Bee A Try?

90% of the time, we tend to use more products that are not good for us in the long run. All natural is simply the way to go. More and more consumers are buying aromatherapy products, just like Bath And Body Works products simply because its good for us. And the scents smell great. From a business standpoint, the line is still unfamiliar to the consumer world. Sales of this product line may not be high at first, but it can be a profitable investment if you market the line well. I’m one business owner in 2016 who plans on selling this natural line to my customers on eBay. Wish me luck, you guys.

There are more companies out here besides Bath And Body Works with an all natural aromatherapy product line. We just need to do our research and give them a try. Where one company may fall short with its business strategy with its customers, another prevails, or both. Bath And Body Works remains number one in the aromatherapy world. However, you should give this natural product line a try today. You never know what a product is like unless you try it. Long story short, all natural is the way to go.
