If there’s one thing I L-O-V-E, it’s this time of year! The weather allows for boots and scarves, cool breezes (Making it so I dont need to powder my nose nearly as often!), and best of all…PUMPKIN versions of all my faves…lattes, pies and even DIY FACIALS!!
Here’s an amazing one that helps repair, smooth and smells incredible!
2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin (pureed)
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon spice
Combine all your ingredients and apply. (Avoiding eye area.)
Leave on for 15-20 minutes
Rinse with warm water.
According to Divavillage.com Pumpkin is full of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, potassium, alpha-carotene, zinc, beta carotene, and lutein. Pumpkin enzymes can soothe and protect your skin. These essential nutrients can reach deep within your pores and absorb quickly.Pumpkin nourishes dry skin instantly, giving you a healthy glow anytime your skin needs a boost! Colder weather can make your skin especially dehydrated, and the brisk fall and winter breeze certainly doesn’t help. Pumpkin works as an accelerator for other ingredients, helping the skin absorb vital nutrients and vitamins quickly.

Wednesday I had the pleasure of working on a beautiful fashion shoot in the country side of Murrieta, CA. It was a gorgeous day oozing with undeniable talent. Working with my amazing friend, Jay Warren of Studio 7a Photography along with Photographer Lenny Lesser and videographer Jason Taylor . The focus of the shoot was to obtain high end and casual catalog fashion shots and collaborate with some great artists and beautiful models.
There were 3 models, all of which I had the pleasure of dolling up! Going with the Bohemian/Hippie/Vintage Rustic fashion looks, 2 of three models were first prepped with Goldwell’s Top Whip Mousse to create a base and hold for irons and braids. After dried all hair was misted with Enjoy’s Styling Spray as a working spray and thermal protectant and a Enzo no clamp iron was used to created soft romantic curls/translated waves topped with Sebastian’s ReShaper as the finishing spray. Traditional braids and a rope braid were showcased, as well as a reformed (modernized) milkmaid-braid.
