Have you been following Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty on Ovation? I’m fascinated by it! Rachel travels around the globe to uncover the beauty secrets of many cultures.

Would you put your hand up at meetings to ask questions and get answers? Or…Would you commit to a healthier lifestyle–and a new gym–because you know
When I was very young, I tried my mom’s perfume for the first time. In fact, I got carried away with the spray! I remember my father looking at me with his nose scrunched up, because I had overdone the scent. He said “Perfume is meant to enhance, not overwhelm.” Wise advice that I have
Someone once said to me “With our thoughts, we make our lives.” It was probably my therapist. But, whoever said it was on to something!
