No More Winter Blues Beauty Secret #2

In addition to Hydrating your skin in many ways it is also important to HYDRATE from the inside out!
Do not limit your skin's hydration just to the exterior. Replenishing your body's fluids gives you more energy, benefits your overall health, and will also help keep your skin from becoming dehydrated. Nourish your skin from the inside out, by eating fresh, healthy foods, drinking lots of water, and supplementing with beneficial beverages such as Votre Vu's SnapDragon.

SnapDragon: Enjoy daily - a delicious, nutritious blend of antioxidants super fruits like mango, pomegranate and acai berry juices, collagen, calcium seven essential daily vitamins, the extracts of green, white, and red tea, and beneficial botanicals like aloe vera, ginkgo biloba, and baobabfiber.

My Christmas Card Find This Year...

I have been doing photo Christmas cards for many years now.  My oldest of six is 21 and I've been including a photo almost every year as we've added to our gang! However, it use to be just that, a photo that was 'included' with the Holiday card.  Now, we've come along way with so many choices for Holiday Photo Cards - not only with different card types but ways we can include photo's... even 'do it yourself' cards online! With my goal of getting my Christmas cards done and ready to go by December 1st I was happy to have come across Shutterfly! I went to Shutterfly's website:  -- and was ecstatic about ALL the choices! For my card this year, I'm going with one of their Folded Greeting Cards ~ I like their photo cards that your picture takes up the whole front of the card.  This is the style that works best with a large family/photo. 
They have tons of options and great prices! You can't go wrong with Shutterfly!

They have great 'special offers' going on right now as well!

If you don't or can't get around to Christmas cards... don't fret! They also have New Year's cards

The best part about Shutterfly is how easy it is to customize your own greeting cards. Designing your own cards is a snap right online!

I look forward to sharing my Christmas Photo Card with you all! Happy Holidays!

No More Winter Blues Beauty Secret #1

Dry, cold and windy weather outdoors and dry, static-inducing central heating inside not only pull moisture from the air, but also from your skin.  the winter elements leave many people's skin feeling tight, itchy, and sometime seven flaky and cracked  - complexions lose their radiance and fine lines look deeper.  Fight back!  Regain that beautiful, moisture-filled skin with these Votre Vu ease...

*Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
 Moisturize your body immediately after showering, apply lotion to hands every time after washing, and re-apply throughout the day to those areas which dry most easily - like hands, elbows, and feet.  Avoid waxy moisturizers that can clog pores.  And by all means, don't forget to hook up that home humidifier!
  • Amour D'Ore
  • Use an all-around treatment for sensitive skin like Votre Vu's dry-oil, vitamin-rich Amour D'Ore spray, which is especially invaluable for those hard-to-reach areas - like the back.  Apply as you step out of the shower for deep absorption.  Use alone but for an extra protective moisture layer, apply Amour D'Ore's essential oils underneath Tarte D'Amande Souffle daily body creme.  (One more tip...rub a small amount in your hair to shield and protect your locks form the winter elements and take away that frizz and static for a smooth healthy look.)
  • Tarte D'Amande Souffle'
  • Use day and night for luxurious moisture protection that's never heavy or greasy.  With a decadent almond pie aroma, fatty acids, vitamins and tropical nut oils in the body souffle' provide the ultimate in hydrated and sensuously silky skin.
