When I want to add a little heat and flare to my dishes, there is only one spice I turn to and it’s one that so many people may already have as part of their spice collection; cayenne pepper. I add it to everything and anything that calls for a little extra spice and heat and besides the amazing flavor it adds, the benefits make it all the more worth while to cook with.

  • helps and prevent fungal pathogens
  • prevention of migraine headaches
  • anti-allergen

  • anti -redness properties
  • helps in the production of saliva
  • useful for blood clots
  • helps the body with detoxing
  • joint-pain reliever
  • has many anti-bacterial properties
  • some studies even show it can be an anti-cancer agent
  • supports weight loos and heart health
  • toothache remedy
  • Also a topical remedy for the skin to treat bites, sores, and wounds

#WCW Inspiration – Maya Mia, MUA

Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 5.05.15 AM

Today is not only a day to post my women crush of the week but to actually tell you guys why I love her so much. Maya Mia has been my inspiration and crush for years now and has helped me become a better makeup artist in my career. Her work ethic shines through in my own work and inspires me to give my clients the best of the best.

Maya Janeska, better known in the makeup blogging community as Maya Mia is a self taught inspiration from Tanzania, East Africa. Her most impressive quality is coming from a place where makeup artistry is kind of a ghost path and yet she had a will and found a way to stretch her talents through her YouTube videos, Instagram feed, and Facebook page and grabbed the hearts of makeup artists and fans around the world, even reaching the attention of Anastasia Beverly Hills, who is, till this day a huge supporter of her work. The two collaborated on a palette inspired by the colors of Maya’s home.

I absolutely love that she cares about every single one of her fans and subscribers and that she talks to the audience while teaching. Maya Mia puts her time and every last effort into her tutorial videos for the most amazing and gorgeous results. Her family’s art history shines through in everything she does on herself and her clients. During an interview with Jill Russel on Beautylish Maya Mia said “I never pre-plan my looks, I just look at the palette and let my imagination guide me. Don’t be afraid to play with color. It’s only when you do that that you’ll find your perfect combination.”

Review on Brazilian Blowout

10678820_10201731263963692_102542576259625606_n

Review straight from the expert this morning!

“I do the Brazilian blowout on myself every 3 months.. It keeps my hair healthy and manageable… Gets rid of the frizz.. I was walking around like this in the rain yesterday… Hair stayed till now! And will stay till I wash it.. When I wash my hair I still need to go over it with the blow dryer but it takes me a quarter of the time.. I don’t have to straighten it either, I can leave my natural wave or I can use a curling iron for volume.. Which is why I love this product!! U can still get volumized hair!!”

If you are anyone you know is interested in booking a Brazilian blowout, call or text Limor directly for an appointment! Have an amazing Thursday everyone!!

We’ve covered the flat tummy water but now I wanted to share something I found that may help you permanently slim down that belly! The summer is currently in full swing and there is nothing I love more than drinking something delicious and refreshing that will help trim some fat!

I take the water with me to the beach, to the gym, while running errands, and to every meeting I have and so will you! Here is the recipe I found on ogorgeous.com:

  • 4-5 slices fresh cucumber
  • 1/2 small lemon sliced
  • 1/4 orange slices
  • few fresh mint leaves
  • 24 oz. of ice cold filtered water

Remember when making any sort of water cocktail, replace your fruit and herbs every 2-3 re-fills to get the maximum benefits from all the ingredients! Enjoy everyone!!

Manuka Honey

10313145_10200881009427860_8564455816425924061_n

New day, new health remedy! This one involves Manuka honey and a little ginger root. When the two ingredients are mixed in warm water the combination is sweet and extremely beneficial.

Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. The honey is believed to have healing agents and is sometimes used directly over a wound with a sterilized dressing. There are other marketed benefits for this honey:

  • Preventing and treating cancer
  • Reducing high cholesterol
  • Reducing systemic inflammation
  • Treating diabetes
  • Treating eye, ear, and sinus infections
  • Treating gastrointestinal problems

Try it, drink it, or use it over your next wound and let me know if you feel amazing!

 

Have an amazing day everyone!
