Natural dryer sheets combined with wool dryer balls are a great reusable alternative to artificially scented disposable dryer sheets.

If you don't have Kim Kardashian's video on contouring, this is the next best thing - I keep it on the wall of my home makeup studio as a reminder! ~ Courtesy of Aesthetica Cosmetics

OK. I know that MOST of you know that sunbathing is bad for your skin (and other things). However, I also know that SOME of you are die-hard sun worshippers who are going to lie out and bake (or fake & bake at a tanning salon). Having said that, if you want the most gorgeous tan of your life, use this simple and inexpensive trick: Coat yourself with a layer of jojoba (I prefer clear because it's a bit lighter but golden will do) and top it off with a layer of sesame seed oil. You may smell like a Japanese restaurant, but you will have a stunning tan!
So here is Posh Aromatherapist's after sun(burn) treatment:
Sunburn-Soothing Bath
8 drops lavender
2 drops chamomile
2 drops helichrysum
1 drop peppermint
Disperse the essential oils in a bathtub filled with cool water. If you wish, you can add ice cubes (I'm not kidding) to keep the water cool. Soak for 15 - 20 minutes. Repeat every few hours until the pain subsides.
Sunburn Relief Skin Oil
2 ounces carrier (again, clear jojoba is my fav)
15 drops lavender
8 drops helichrysum
5 drops chamomile
2 drops patchouli
Add the essential oils to the carrier oil in a clean container. Gently turn the container upside down several times or roll it between you hands for a few minutes to blend. Apply often to the affected areas.

Geek Question of the Day: Since I've been informed that not only was it #Caturday  today but also international cat day, I thought it would be fun to ask you guys; What cat-based names for fictional characters can you guys come up with? Yup, pretty much go for for it. Let the puns flow through you...=) #gqotd

Mastering the art of contouring is one of the most important steps to learn on your way to becoming a makeup pro. It may look drastic at first but, with practice, you will find it a wonderful tool to achieving the sculpted perfection demonstrated here.
Contouring Makeup is for special occasions, but what is an easy way for a beginner? We can thank Kim Kardashian for our contouring craziness. She has us all rushing to create the chiseled, highlighted features. But why is contouring so big and how can a beginner contour easily? The #1 reason contouring makeup is big ...

Dr. Donald Brunk (lately of New Mexico), is a great physician and Interfaith should feel lucky to have him. Not only is he knowledgeable and kind, he is that rare combination in a doctor of one who has a sense of humor plus a good bedside manner. I am a difficult patient, having many combinations of illnesses that make me difficult to deal with at best. Dr Brunk has never made me feel like he is exasperated with my case and/or that he would prefer that I see anyone else. On the contrary, he is interested and expresses a desire to know more so that he may get to the bottom where no other doctor has been able to. Also, he has a wonderful nurse, Yulia, who is a genuine prize. She manages to keep him organized (which I would find virtually impossible to do), and always expresses happiness to see me. I feel very fortunate indeed, to have found such wonderful caretakers.

Meredith Pedach is absolutely the best colorist I have ever worked with in 40 years. As a makeup artist, having great hair is an absolute must and I felt extremely fortunate to find her. Envy Boutique Salon is a unique and lovely spot, comfortable and warm.
