Kiss Me Kate

blog_beautyThere are a few skin care products that I splurge on. One of them is worth the $65 price tag—Exfolikate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment by Kate Somerville, sold at katesomerville.com and sephora.com, or in select Neiman Marcus stores.

During every winter season my normally oily skin begins some strange shedding process, and becomes flaky, rough, and generally unattractive. At the height of this season’s worst ever attack on my skin, I decided to finally find a solution to this annoying problem. I was looking for the perfect exfoliator that would clear away the flaky skin, and make room for soft, fresh skin. I found my answer one day when I stopped in at a Neiman Marcus. I must have hit the store on a particularly generous day, because I walked home with a nice handful of samples and I had a chance to try out Exfolikate (the gentle version, since my skin is always having problems). Within two days it felt like my skin began to breathe, and young, clear skin began to show through. The dull winter nature of my skin disappeared and the flakes were gone. (Even my husband tried it out and loved it.)

After I ran out of samples, I purchased the product, and it has been well worth the investment. About three times a week, in the evenings, I wash my face and then use the exfoliator, leaving it on for about 10 minutes. When I wash off the exfoliator, there is a noticeable difference. Splurge on your skin—it’s worth it.

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
