Red, White and Blue Nail Designs: Absolut America Party with a Purpose & Lemon Moscow Mule Cocktail Recipe

My husband came home with a bottle of Absolut Vodka for his favorite summer cocktail, the Lemon Moscow Mule. The Absolut bottle was all cute in a red, white and blue design. I just love it!

I will be keeping this bottle, the empty bottle of course! 😜 As it turns out, this is a limited edition Absolut America bottle to help raise money to Keep America Beautiful. 

From May 1, 2018 till September 3, 2018, Absolut will donate one dollar to one of four  charities including Keep America Beautiful for each picture submitted showing how you party with a purpose this summer. You can select your charity and submit a pic on the Absolut site.  (You will need to sign in with your age over 21.) Fun and giving back at the same time. It's all good!

The simple painted design on the Absolut America bottle inspired me to create some bold, simple red, white and blue nail designs for the upcoming July 4th holiday. Simple stars and stripes painted with red, white and blue nail polish.

Lemon Moscow Mule
My husband loves this refreshing cocktail in the summer. The classic Moscow Mule is made with lime juice but he prefers lemon juice.

2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
5 ounces ginger beer
Lemon slice for garnish

Pour vodka into a copper mug or high ball glass. Add lemon juice. Add ice cubes. Top with the ginger beer. Gently stir. Add more ice if needed. Garnish with a lemon slice on the side of the mug or glass. Enjoy! 
Makes one cocktail.

Ginger beer is a non alcoholic beverage. You can find it right in your local grocery store usually in the soda aisle. Amazon is the place to get some copper mugs at great prices! 

Have a Safe and Happy Independence Day!

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out. Read more about blackhead, whiteheads and blind pimples This is a common problem for the under-eye area. It is a dry, delicate area of the skin. I see it a lot on my clients. Heavy products


This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
