If a Brazilian Glow is what you want, Teadora Has it

My skin is feeling soft as ever with Teadora’s Brazilian Glow. This is an amazing shower accessory and you can use it in the bath too. Brazilian Glow can be used on your face and body, that’s how gentle it is. I love this brand as I already use Teadora Soap bars an their line of Shampoos and Conditioners. Brazilian Glow Revitalizing Scrub & Clay Masque is the perfect shower companion for light exfoliating which will leave your skin feeling silky soft. Brazilian Glow Revitalizing Scrub & Clay Masque has a slightly oily and mild grainy texture, smells very good and feels great on your skin. I like to exfoliate more in the summer because my skin is exposed to the sun and other elements more than in the winter which makes my skin feel dry. Brizalian Glow does such a great job of moisturizing that it’s the only moisturizer I need after a shower.

What I like about Brazilian Glow Revitalizing Scrub & Clay Masque is that it is a scrub and masque in one product.  It is formulated with “a proprietary RainforestYouth(tm) Elixir – a superfood oil cocktail of exotic essential oils from Açaí, Andiroba & Maracujá combined with YouthSpark(tm) Actives complex to provide powerful detox, exfoliation, smoothing, brightening, and firming. “

Brazilian Glow Revitalizing Scrub & Clay Masque contains organic sugar and an exotic Brazilian RedAmber Clay that helps to improve elasticity and firmness.

Enjoy a spa like experience with Brazilian Glow Revitalizing Scrub & Clay Masque. Simply coat your skin, like your arms and legs with Brazilian Glow and wrap them in saran wrap or a hot towel. Relax for 15 minutes and rinse off. you will feel wonderful!

I love that Teadora supports the environment. With the purchase of each Teadora product www.teadora.com, the brand supports sustainable agriculture in Brazil to help put an end to rainforest deforestation, partnering with groups and organizations including the Rainforest Alliance, Conservation International, the Kayapo tribe of the Amazon and more.

All Teadora products contain natural and organic ingredients harvested from the Amazon in a sustainable way, paying respect to Mother Earth.

The Bag Bug…a Must have handbag accessory

When I first saw this unique accessory, I knew I had to have one. If you haven’t heard about the Bag Bug, you are in for a treat. The Bag Bug was created by Isabel Fernandez. She is a woman who definitely understands the need for comfort when carrying a handbag or diaper bag with straps as well as a need to keep keep your bag off the floor.  I wish I had one when I was toting around a diaper bag. The Bag Bug is a purse accessory that clips on the strap of your bag. There is a rubber pad on the underside of the Bag Bug for extra comfort when your handbag is over your shoulder. This rubber pad also prevents your bag from slipping off your shoulder.
What I love about the Bag Bug is that it works. I can easily rest my handbag at the corner of any table or Roundback chair (a big problem in restaurants) and the bag stays off the floor. I often sit at a table in a restaurant and can not fine a place to rest my purse and have to put it on the chair behind me. The Bag Bug has solved my handbag problems. The Bag Bug come in an assortment of styles and luxury finishes like stainless steel, 24K gold plated and 18K rose gold plated. You can view the  styles here at The Bag Bug.
WHERE DID THE NAME BAG BUG COME FROM?
I found this interesting excerpt at their website, “While conceiving the idea for the product, founder Isabel Fernandez was inspired by the ancient Mexican tradition of wearing a real live beetle (A Scarab) on the shoulder as an amulet for good luck. Since the scarab is a bug, and the accessory would be attached to the bag, she thought “it’s like a little bug for your bag!” It just seemed fitting for the accessory; short and sweet, catchy, fun and easy to remember.  Bag Bug: The only Bug you’ll ever love!”

Time for a Vegan 🌿 Gluten-Free Afternoon Tea 🌷 Earl Grey Shortcake Recipe by Abby Phon

We’re back today with a healthy and elegant afternoon tea-time treat by Abby Phon, a health & wellness life coach and vegan recipe guru who has been partnering with Hynt Beauty to provide us with original Hynt recipes that feature one or a few of the ingredients that we formulate into our clean, makeup and skincare products.

Introducing her all new vegan & gluten-free Earl Grey Shortbread recipe which features Bergamot Oil from real Earl Grey Tea Leaves, and a dash of Vanilla, too.

“Personally, I LOVE Earl Grey Tea,” says Abby, who found it challenging to avoid the caffeinated drink while she was breastfeeding. She eventually went for the decaf version but it got her thinking about how she can infuse that flavor into a baked goodie to go with the tea “…or just as well with the red raspberry leaf tea I was drinking to support and tone my uterus,” she jokes.

“Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia) is actually a cross between a lemon and an orange, and has a very citrus-y scent. It’s best known for being the main flavor in Earl Grey tea, but besides its distinctive aroma, bergamot oil is amazing for your skin and body!”

Bergamot is full of polyphenols, a natural antiseptic and cicatrisant, which is helpful for minimizing acne scars and other skin marks.

Vanilla is sweet, universally loved, especially in sweets and fragrances but it also has great beauty & health benefits, too! Real vanilla is full of antioxidants and has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Earl Grey Shortbread

(Vegan & Gluten Free)

INGREDIENTS

½ cup Earth Balance Buttery Spread, softened

½ cup maple syrup or coconut nectar

2¼ cups gluten-free flour blend (I used Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend)

2 tbsp organic earl grey loose leaf tea or the insides of 4-6 tea bags

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

¼ tsp pink Himalayan salt

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350F

Blitz earl grey tea in a spice/coffee grinder, blender, food processor (or mini-prep) until powdery

Add Earth Balance, maple syrup, tea, vanilla and salt to a food processor and pulse until well combined

Add flour and pulse until a dough forms
Form into a patty and refrigerate for ~20 minutes to firm up

On a floured surface, flatten to a ½ thick rectangle and cut into squares

Transfer to a baking pan or cookie sheet and bake for 14-15 minutes, until just browned on the edges

Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Don’t worry if they are a little soft – they will harden as they cool!

Enjoy!

Doesn’t Dad deserve a Legacy for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is the perfect occasion to give that special man in your life cologne. If he is anything like my husband, he will love the cologne if it is a gift but he will never buy it for himself. This Father’s Day I found the perfect cologne, Empire Lyon’s Legacy Fragrance For Men.  I gave my children a few cologne options to choose from and Legacy got the “thumbs up” !

LEGACY is a sophisticated cologne with an alluring masculine scent.  This spectacular fragrance “opens with a sparkling blend of bergamot and lemon water with an atomic heart of lavender buds, crisp geranium and clary sage”  It also carries scents of  warm amber, vanilla suede and tobacco leaf.
LEGACY was launched by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2015. It was inspired by the Twentieth Century Fox highly acclaimed Television series “Empire” created the visionary Lee Daniels. The bottle design represents “striking gold”. “The idea expressed literally via the gold nugget design of our fragrance candle design and metaphorically expressed via the gold hue, crocodile trim, and Jeweled facets caps of the bottle designs.”    The Empire “E” pendent adorns the fragrance bottle magnificently.
Empire Lyon’s Legacy Fragrance For Men Eau de Toilette Spray 3.4 oz is Available at EmpireFragrance.com and Macy’s.
