If You’ve Had a “Hard Night,” Get Ready For A “Good Morning”

Founder D’Andra Simmons

Hard Night, Good Morning Skin Care   When I first heard about this skin care line, I laughed thinking, “Oh yeah, I’ve been there.”  We’ve all has those nights where we partied way too much and now we’re dehydrated and wrinkled like a raisin.  Trying to cover the dark under-eye circles just becomes a big mess as the concealer becomes cakey looking and draws more attention to the lines.   Here to the rescue is [...]

Holistic Body Realignment for Athletes


  Holistic Body Realignment, is a full body treatment that was inspired by Derek Jeter and his injury at the end of the 2012 season. After Jeter’s injury, I began to think about what methods I would use to help heal his ankle in order to for him to return to the field as quickly, and in the best health possible. I developed a treatment that blends together some of the best non-invasive treatment modalities [...]

Oscars, Nipple Darts and Titty Suction Cups?

from bad to worse!

    The best part of the Oscars, is that we’re all invited to the after-party. You know, the time after the awards when we rip certain celebs apart for their bad taste or clamor for the hottest dress or hairstyle. It’s all in good fun, because in Hollywood, award ceremonies or Project Runway; one day you’re in and the next day you’re out! Here are some of my best/worst picks for the night. Lets [...]

Have you tried a cupping treatment yet?


This January, my friend and I traveled to China and HAD to visit the spas. No hotel spas for us.  We wanted the real deal. I have to say, I was surprised.  In America, Chinese spas don’t have the best reputation for quality or cleanliness, but these spas were lovely, clean and beautifully decorated.  We went to two different spas, where they spoke very little English.  I wasn’t there for a conversation, so it didn’t [...]

Lisi Cosmetics – My New Fav Make-up


As a make-up artist, I have a ton of make-up. Ok, well maybe only 1,000 pounds but I really don’t need anymore make-up.

Fashion Week with Dore Designs


YES, I admit that I love anything with rhinestones, glitter or sequins. After all, I am a Jersey girl.  As much as I love Michael Kors, I was just as much in my glory at the fashion show for Dore Designs featuring their first evening wear designs. NO, they are not new designers, but they’re actually professional dance wear designers. So yes, it was like taking the best outfits from Dancing With The Stars and [...]

What is the Best City for Your Skin?


As an esthetician, I have had clients from all over the world.  One of the major issues in health and appearance of skin is where you live! If you move from Arizona with no moisture in the air to Florida where it’s all humidity, your skin will feel it. Changes in seasons, humidity and wind can dramatically effect the skin and how it looks, acts and feels. This article from The Daily Glow, tells you [...]

The Way – Featuring Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez


Once in a while a movie comes along that makes you laugh, cry, think about the course of your life, where you’ve been and where you’re going.  The film, The Way, featuring Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estevez does just that.  Sorry Emilio, but whenever I see you, I think of The Breakfast Club and you pulling on the neck strings of your hoodie.  I really had no idea how talented he is.  He [...]

Sleep Well and Meditate Great!

The best in relaxation

As you already know, I’m a big believer in the healing power of music.  Recently, I came across 3 new cd’s that clients are loving and so am I. All 3 CD’s are from the company Paradise Music and I didn’t even realize I had Reiki Gold from them for years which is one of my favorite CD’s to totally crash to! Reiki Sleep is another CD that is so amazing. I have one client [...]
