World of Bella Aura, is more then just another beauty product!

It was one snowy day right after the storm hit the city. The weather was freezing cold and sunny and the road was extremely messy. I had to get up from the bed at 8 am and dressed up for Kung Fu Panda 3 screening event with Kate Hudson and Lucy Liu, by www.themoms.com but that was not what excited me; the only reason to why I had the enthusiasm to get up and dress early in the morning in a freezing weather was the opportunity to learn from Cherie Corso. Cherie is an innovative founder of G2 Organics www.g2organics.com, blogger www.cheriecorso.com, mom, and of course my boss! G2 Organics? Are you sure they are true organics? Yes my dear, I can assure you they all are organics, odorless, and colorless. You know what I love about odorless products? First, they are not too confident that we would accept their choice of scent. Second, we can add our scent to the product. For example, you can spray your favorite perfume on the spot where you apply the Hickey Stick. Your perfume will last longer and get much stronger because the Hickey Stick traps the molecules so they do not evaporate as much as they would without the Hickey Stick.
New York, New York– Lets face it ladies, nobody wants to have major plastic surgery, we all just want to just look good, we want to look refreshed. I went to a great event at The Lucy Peters Aesthetic Center in NYC they are the "hair removal experts" with a recently released original infographic designed to visually break down the facts, numbers and figures behind the various benefits of hair removal techniques. Their exclusive, 100% guaranteed permanent integrated hair removal technology, Smooth System by Lucy Peters has inspired the graphic creation providing a clear alternative method to rid every hair, everywhere, on all diverse skin types. I had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with the manager and international beauty expert Certified LP System Technician. Kinga Bagnowska, is amazing, her expertise and knowledge of skin, ageing and hair removal was "mind blowing". I so enjoyed spending time with her.
The info-graphic starts off with the basics including:
A single hair has about a lifespan of 5 years. The growth rate for human hair is about 6 inches per year while hair removal is the 4th most common minimally invasive procedure. The FDA approved the use of commercial lasers for permanent hair reduction in 1997 and the number of hair removal procedures performed in the US increased by 47% between 2000 and 2011.
The Common Treatment Areas for Hair Removal on Women include:
- Upper Lip
- Bikini Area
The Common Treatment Areas for Hair Removal on Men include:
The Top 3 Benefits of Permanent Hair Removal:
- Time Saver
- Smoother Skin
- Saving Money
The average woman spends an average of 10.9 minutes per shave. Most females follow a beauty regime where shaving is appropriate approximately 3 times per week (130.8 minutes per month). When you add that all up it totals 58.4 days. This equals an estimation of 7,718 times a woman shaves in her lifetime! Between the cost of shaving products alone, women may spend up to $15.87 per month as the common median. Times that for the year, you have a total of $190.44. This concludes in the span of a lifetime, the average lady is looking to fork over $10,207 just on shaving products.
However, there are cost-effective alternatives. Using the same basic principles and logic, waxing may run you about $23,000 a lifetime while Laser or Permanent Hair Removal reaches only a mere $3,000 for a smooth, hairless and ageless skin.

Kung Fu Panda 3, opens today in theaters, I had a sneak preview. I especially liked this move because I'm a Reiki Master and spiritual junkie, I believe in Karma, energy from the universe and trusting your chi. I do believe this is the best Kung Fu Panda movie. Everyone agreed, The Moms, press, bloggers, kids, we all loved it. I especially liked when we got up close and personal with Kate Hudson and Lucy Liu. Yes ladies they were great, very open and answered all our questions.
Nickolas F. Lumanpauw, my smart quick acting intern (www.g2organics.com) from Fordham University got the only "selfie" of the day with Kate Hudson. They had a great moment!
The average person uses 10-12 beauty products before they leave their home every morning. Starting with shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, deodorant, gel, makeup and even more lotions and potions to be groomed in order to feel good. This adds up to 500 chemicals daily one puts on their body that gets absorbed. Studies show that children are having puberty earlier, mens testosorin levels are down, and cancer on the rise. The movement is to be healthier, be green, to be good to the environment by using organic and natural beauty products. We are bombarded everyday with “noise” about how to look better, be healthier. Now is a time to rebuild and rethink what we are doing to reach a healthy balance.
Throughout history cosmetics have played a role in shaping peoples lives. One drop at a time we can help ourselves and the environment.

#Acupuncture Facelift, what is it and does it work? Acupuncture Facelift, what is it and does it work? I had to give it a try, its natural, no chemicals NO cutting, sound right up my alley, this type of facial facelift has been praised in VOGUE (http://www.vogue.com/871420/vd-maggie-betts-is-obsessed-facial-acupuncture) I sought out the best in the biz, her name is Darien Lamb, RN, LAC, MS she was highly recommended. When I first met Darien, I was impressed by her credentials, and institutional knowledge, she treats the whole body, not just the face. I had my first appointment at Nicholas Day Spa, in Pelham NY http://nicholasdayspa.com she explained the treatment in detail, its natural way to help the aging process a cosmetic facial acupuncture is a healthy alternative to invasive Western medical injectable, fillers, and surgical procedures. it enhances muscle tone, strengthens and firms skin appearance, and improves overall health and well-being. The treatment takes 10 visits to see the full results, but I immediately felt the relaxation effects from day one, and saw the cosmetic results after the 3rd visit. The lines were softer and plumped. This cosmetic facial acupuncture left me looking and feeling relaxed and glowing. It is an effective treatment for people of all ages. Western Medicine (WM) views cosmetic facial concerns like wrinkles, loss of muscle tone, sagging skin, and skin problems as the result of factors such as habitual muscle movement, aging, genetics, and climatic factors. Although Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) agrees with Western Medicine, more importantly, TCM believes that aging is directly influenced by physical, emotional, and spiritual health. As I relaxed on the table with acupuncture needles in my face and legs, I felt a deep relaxation come over my entire body, it was hypnotic. After a section I felt like I had just woke up from a nap.
Before the treatment I did have a comprehensive exam which included questions concerning your digestion, sleep patterns, diet, stress level, family health history, and cosmetic concerns. The practitioner looks at the tongue, feel the pulse on your wrists, and possibly press or massage various body parts. She will inserted fine, sterilized acupuncture needles into specific acupuncture points on your face and body. The purpose of the treatment is to restore internal health to naturally lift, tone, and strengthen muscle integrity and skin. The result is healthy toned face muscles, tighter skin, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, refined skin, even skin color , and improved health and well-being. I love before and after pictures, check out these!
I highly recommend this treatment not only for beauty but for internal relaxation and all the health benefits that come with acupuncture. When you feel good you look good, and when you look good you feel good.Make a apt at Nicholas Day Spa,203 Wolfs Lane 914 738 3838 or 140 Lockwood Ave, New Rochelle

Volkswagen, Partner of Culture and Arts MoMA PS1
Its so true the arts transcend people and places. The MoMA had to be one of the most glamorous and exciting places in NYC to be! I went with my daughter, to support the arts. As a mother and On Air Parenting Expert, arts and my work go hand and hand in our household, inspiration comes in so many forms and it pops out brings happiness to all areas of our life.The arts have so many benefits for adults and children, from reducing stress, to aid in real life problem solving, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of our life. Art is a way of making things better! I love creating and the creatives of the world, as you can see me on the far left in pink having a great conversation about the beautiful event. The food, guests, the atmosphere were amazing.
For the next two years, the Volkswagen Group of America will be the lead sponsor of educational programming for the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA), and will back major exhibitions including MoMA PS1’s survey of local artists, Greater New York, opening this autumn at the Queens museum.
