| Hi ,|
Have you ever heard the term "June Gloom"? I've heard it before in previous years and apparently we are experiencing it here in Olympia once again. While it is rather gloomy weather and I'd much prefer sunshine and warmth, there is plenty evidence of Summer all around that brightens my day....flowers, fresh scents, mint water, open windows, growing gardens.....the taste of fresh local produce - YUM!
Speaking of which, Shawn and I are in the process of freezing organic strawberries and our house has all the tell-tale signs....cookie sheets of berries, freezers bags, straws, pink splotches on the floor, stems here and there, and a big pile of empty strawberry boxes to return to the farm. Oh yeah, I almost forgot...and a belly full of strawberries! I believe a strawberry facial is in the works for this evening. Hmmmm......I wonder if I can convince Shawn to join me? ;-)
Summer can be a busy time for trips and vacations and I thought I'd give you a heads up when I will be away on adventures for planning purposes.
July 29 - August1st (river rafting/dance trip)
August 26th - September 7th (Burning Man!)
I look forward to swapping summer adventure stories!!
These are photos of my friend Maureen and I goofing off in the Uspa education classroom up in Seattle. I've been going up there almost once a month for awhile now to learn more about Uspa products, ingredients, and techniques. It's been so amazing getting connected with folks in my field who have the same values and philosophies as me. It's been equally fabulous to learn more and more about the products, their benefits, and about each specific ingredient. Fascinating, really. For those of you who are curious, I try to include some 'educational' info about each featured product of the month. I personally find it empowering to know just what I'm absorbing through my skin and hair. I hope you find it interesting and helpful!
Why do I look so nerdy in Maureen's glasses but she looks totally cute in them?!? ;-)
A few Random 'Quick Fix' Tips...
Super dry ends?
Quick Fix: Olive Oil.
If the ends of your hair are felling, well, crispy, try a small drop of olive, jojoba, or coconut oil. Yup, super easy - even on vacation! Be careful...a very little goes a long way.....you don't want to end up looking like a grease ball. If too much comes out just use it for a quick body moisturizer. I keep a little squeeze bottle of oil in my bathroom for convienence.
Crazy bed head?
Quick Fix: A spray bottle of water
Having a spray bottle of water is super handy in the bathroom. Use it to refresh curls, get rid of the 'wave' that wearing a ponytail can leave, or redirect a part. Sometimes it's helpful to mist your hair and then use the blowdryer a bit to reshape the hair.
Argh, a pimple!
Quick Fix: Mud mask
If you've got an unwelcome 'little friend' show up on your face, try putting a dab of mud mask onto the pimple before you go to bed. The clay in the mask will help draw out impurities and start to dry up the lil' bugger.
