This was a portrait that I modeled for and the first of many done by artist David Eichenberg. I told him many times that he has NO idea just how much this changed who I was. It all came along, perfectly timed, at the right point of my life. The fact that he called it Revolutionary was monumental for me. Forever will it be a turning point for me. All my selfishness aside, he is an amazing person who I have been blessed to have gotten to work with. Blessed to have seen yet another beautiful creation come out of him… www.davideichenberg.com

Dread Up!!

My up-do for the day! I can’t tell you how hard it is to get all this hair to stay up! If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them!! Changed around the kitchen the other day and now there is a whole different “work” area! I am completely stoked about working in the next couple weeks… Next I have to paint the walls and finish the cabinets on the other side. Might have to have a painting party to get it done!

Salt and Honey Scrub with Grapefruit and Rosemary

Always on the lookout for a natural and refreshing scrub and this one looks like a winner! I happened to come across this today and had to share. This beauty of a scrub, which was originally posted by Miss Hannah Grunzke, totally has my interest. Now if I could just find a little more time to dive into it, I would be a much happier camper. Yet another item to add to my list of things I want to do when I get spare time.
