Get into the Spirit of Red Lipstick this Holiday Season
I love this time of the year because its the best time to try out a lip shade that you would not normally wear. If you have been curious and open to trying something new then I'd say just go for it. So now, how do you find the right red for your skin tone is a great question most people ask. As a makeup expert for over 20 years , I often get bombarded with women having trouble selecting a great red that compliments their skin. One way to discover your perfect shade is to understand your skin tone and what your undertones are. Those with a cooler skin tones, looking for a blue-based lipstick is suggested. Embellish Beauty liquid Lipstick called Boss is a great blue-based shade. Scarlet Liquid Lipstick is also one of our favorite go to true blue based lipsticks. If you are warmer skin toned then going for that orange-based Red is the way to go! Our go to orange-based red shades like Red Carpet and Relentless are a great options. What shades will you try with Embellish Beauty? Enjoy 10% off for your perfect red lipstick by using GORED22.

Health is Wealth
Through the years, I have had my share of bad eating habits. Yes, I said it and I am sure there are some people that will say I shouldn't be so hard on myself but to be honest I've struggled with food my entire life. The only difference was it was disguised with a hard core running schedule that I was committed to but I never looked at food until I slowed down my running schedule and packed on pounds like no other. It was challenging to say the least. I am the girl who struggled with failed diet after diet. My father died of a massive heart attack in 2016 and after that heartbreaking experience, I still struggled with food. I worked long crazy hours with call times at 2 am because I was in TV. When covid hit, and my eating became worse, I was always an emotional eater and I drank wine more then I needed on the weekends. That pushed me to the all time high of emotional eating and depression. Then it spiraled into high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Soon after, the medicine was prescribed. It wasn't until I went to my annual doctors appointment to review my bloodwork that declared that I had a Positive Double Strand Marker which concerned my doctor that I could have an autoimmune disease. She sent me to see a rheumatologist. I was in bad shape. This caused me to really look deep. During this time, I had suffered a meniscus injury. Two years past and I finally get meniscus surgery this year. I then decided I really needed to change my habits. As of October 2020, I committed myself to no meat and a green smoothie diet. I also implemented intermitting fasting starting my eating window at 11 am and I conclude at 6pm. I am down 20 pounds and feeling alive. Here is one of my favorite morning rituals along with my dinner post that got over 250 views and some private messages.
Green Beauty Smoothie:
2 handfuls of spinach
2 cups of water
1 cup of mixed frozen fruit : Pineapple , apple, peaches, mango
1 teaspoon of Flaxseed/Chia Seeds
1 teaspoon of Prebiotic
* I always lightly blend my greens first
My favorite Stew made with Jackfruit. It is savory and filling.
2 cans of organic jackfruit. (rinsed and broken apart)
sautéed onions, mushrooms, fresh garlic in olive oil
Once sautéed you can add the jackfruit and seasoning. I use garlic powder, onion powder, Goya seasoning, 1 teaspoons of Better than Bouillon in vegetable with one cup of water. I add the water once the bouillon flavors the jackfruit.
Transfer the Jackfruit and mixture to your crockpot. I use a technique pot and I select the beef option.
Cut up red potatoes and organic carrots. Fill the pot with vegetable broth and allow it to cook. I allowed it to cook for 1 hour (until potatoes and carrots are soft)
