Summer is officially here, Houston is sweltering and the days of summer are in full swing! With temperatures climbing well into the 90s daily, many Fashionistas struggle with determining what new products to add to their arsenal to be sure that they are prim, polished and protected until the forgiving fall season reemerges.

After some research I have found four products that promise to keep you looking and feeling fabulous and cool this season.

1. Clinique City Block 25 SPF- As we all know

(or should know) sun block is essential to protecting

our skin against harmful UV rays that add lines, age spots

and over time can lead to skin cancer. Clinique has

developed a summer staple that will supply your face with

oil-free moisture as well as all-day protection against the
sun. (Rice Village –Sephora- 2401 Times)

2. Kiehl’s Day Care Lip Balm SPF 15- With over 150
years of experience in manufacturing high quality products for the face and

body, Kiehl’s definitely knows athing or two about keeping

Fashionistas looking their best. Kiehl’s Day Care Lip Balm

with SPF soothes cracked & chapped lips and is available in
clear and tinted. So whether you want to slather it on as a
base for your favorite summer gloss or make one of the

light tints your new summer hue-Kiehl’s has you covered.

3. True Blue Spa Rice to the Rescue body polish-

Ready to hit the beach, go for a dip in the pool, or just

ready to sport your sun dresses and shorts? Not so fast!

You sure to prepare your skin with a thorough exfoliation

session. Bath & Body Works hit the mark with its “Rice to the

Rescue” body polish.With rice bran to gently exfoliate and rice

milk and oil to nourish and moisturize-your skin will thank you.

4. Victoria’s Secret Bare Bronze Body-Perfecting Spray - Let’s

face it-sometimes summer rolls around faster than those

workout results kick in, leaving all of us in need of a little

assistance. Victoria’s Secret Bare Bronze Body-Perfecting

Spray boasts of its ability to immediately conceal stretch

marks and cellulite. With a claim to fame like that, this

summer secret may have year-round staying power, Fashionistas!

Point, aim, spray, and put on that sexy summer sundress and

seize the day! (Victoria’s Secret Stores)

Oh how awesome is the power of God. God is so many different things to each one of us. I would be writing for days if I attempted to make a list of those things. The power of God can not be denied. It is He who has made us fearfully and wonderfully in his image. Let not your heart be troubled...if God said it you can rest assure that it will come to past.

Be encouraged my fellow Fashionistas. You are a marvelous piece of work. There is none other like you. You are beautiful, majestic, specially made by the Creator Himself. Take pride in who you are and where you are in life. You are who you are and where you are at this specific time for God's specific purpose. Even when we are going through something God is still there. It's up to us to stop and hear his voice. Oh what a mighty God we serve. Oh what an honor to be a child of the Most High.

With God as your Father who could ask for anything else.

The Yolanda Adams Morning Show

Promotes Modeling 101

Fashionistas...I was recently given a blessed opportunity that I wanted to share with each of you. I was afforded the chance to go on The Yolanda Adams Morning show to promote the Modeling 101 Workshop which is conducted by Delilah Unlimited.

I can't begin to convey to you how honored I was to have the opportunity to speak about something that is so dear to my heart as educating and empowering young girls and women. Yolanda and the staff at the station were incredibly friendly and accommodating to me. I won't lie to you...I was on cloud nine. I was sitting next to a woman who's music had helped me through some trying times. To this day a good Yolanda Adams song can minister to my heart. No matter what I'm going through songs like "The Battle Is Not Yours", "Never Give Up" and "I'm Thankful" always reminds me of who's child I am and that this too shall pass. One could only hope to meet such an iconic figurehead of Gospel music. And yet, here I was sitting right next to her and even more, I was on the radio with her. Oh what a mighty God we serve.

As Yolanda, Larry Jones & I spoke about the Modeling 101 I was so exhilarated. As the phone lines lit up with callers calling in clamouring to register for the Workshop I was ecstatic. Yolanda Adams is also a proud sponsor of the Modeling 101 Workshop.

The Modeling 101 Workshop is for more than those who want to model. The workshop was created with young ladies and women who desire to recapture class, etiquette and style. The workshop covers topics such as

  • Poise, Presence & Posture (command attention when you walk into a room)

  • Runway basics (learn how to walk like a model)

  • Self Confidence & Self Esteem (voice projection, body language)

  • Manners & Etiquette (social and table)

  • Diet & Nutrition

  • Style & Fashion basics

  • Learn how to create a day spa in your own home.

Don't miss out on a fantastic opportunity. The next workshop is scheduled for July 19th. Registration is open now. Get in now and take advantage of the Early Bird Special.

The Fantabulous workshop is the perfect gift for yourself, daughter and/or niece. This workshop is a gift that will stay with participants for a lifetime.
