Read and Mix Up!


If I were to have a top ten list of things I like to do, reading would fill one of the top positions. I just can't help myself. As a kid, I won all the awards you could, for reading the most books throughout the year (this resulted in a lifetime of glasses and lots of squinting in the dark), which only led to prizes of gift certificates for even more books! The one non-negotiable thing that I know I'd like in a custom-made home is no, not a walk-in closet, not a pantry the size of Texas (although those would all be nice too!), but a library. One where all the walls are actually built-in shelves, and one needs a ladder to reach the stuff up top.

Which leads me to this...a book by one of my favorite makeup artists, chalk full of beauty recipes from around the world (Can you imagine? Recipes having to do with beauty? I'm unaware of a better mix!) Enter, Shalini Vadhera's Passport To Beauty. There are seven chapters--six of which are devoted to different parts of the world. Chapter six just happens to be about the "Lands Down Under", which of course spans the tricks of the trade from Australia to Fiji. Try out this quick recipe with items from your kitchen, to fight aging skin. With kiwi as the main ingredient, you can be sure that the fruit's essential fatty acids and huge doses of vitamin C will jumpstart your tired looking canvas!

Kiwi Moisturizing Cleanser

1 kiwi fruit
2 tbl plain yogurt
1 tbl orange juice
1 tbl almond oil
1 tbl honey (manuka, if there's any lying around!)
1 tsp finely ground almonds

Puree the kiwi fruit in a food processor until liquid. While it's processing, add yogurt,
juice, almond oil, and ground almonds. Process until thick.

Massage mixture gently over neck, face, and decolletage to cleanse. Rinse well.
