Skin Authority’s Beauty Infusion™ Collection tops our list as this is a gift that will keep on giving and the presentation is stunning. The collection comes with four infusions: Brightening, Hydrating, Anti-Aging and Clarifying. You can add one or two drops to your moisturizer or foundation. I prefer using the full concentration directly on my skin, especially the Brightening Infusion as it has Turmeric & Blueberry*. The collection offers the best value. Visit: SkinAuthority.com (Free of parabens, added fragrances, dyes, or animal testing.) *My skin feels smoother since using these products.
Books! These are two of the books I’m currently reading and they’re available at NewHarbinger.com Yoga & the Pursuit of Happiness A Guide to Finding Joy in Unexpected Places by Sam Chase In this book there’s a combination of Yoga, Buddhism and Mindfulness to guide us on our journey of life. I especially like the ‘Inquiry’ sections throughout this book (especially the Mindfulness Meditation, chapter 5). While it is a good book for yoga students, I also think it’s a good book for all students of life. Falling In Love with Where You Are by Jeff Foster Life is messy at times….and I often say that I’m ‘embracing’ where I am in the different seasons of my own life. Jeff mentions confronting our shadows and those secret parts of ourselves that we’ve denied and reading this book helps me to surrender, to be, embrace grace and my own divinity. Taking some time each day to read Jeff’s Poetry and Prose will uplift your spirit.
