Eucalyptus Oil: A Natural Pick Me Up and Healer

Eucalyptus Oil: A Natural Pick Me Up and Healer

Hello Divas!

I hope your Monday is simply outstanding!

Divas I want to share my love for pure Eucalyptus Oil. It is one of my favorite natural and pure beauty oils. I first started using Eucalyptus Oil when luxe baby developed a slight head cold. I read that placing a few drops in her bath and on her clothing would help with the congestion while soothing her. Well after one day of following this regimen, luxe baby was healed! No kidding! After this positive experience, I started doing more research on Eucalyptus Oil. I found that it is also an aroma therapeutic product. Placing a few drops in a shower or bath, will give you an instant pick me up. It wakes you up and gives you an invigorating feeling. So if I am sluggish in the morning or just need a little pick me up, I place a few drops of Eucalyptus Oil in my shower and I feel like I can take on anything. I feel energized and refreshed! In addition, I use Eucalyptus Oil if I am experiencing a stuffy nose. Works like a charm every time.

You can purchase pure Eucalyptus Oil from Whole Foods or any other natural foods store. The brand I buy is produced by Now Personal Care. A 4 oz. bottle retails for about $6.00. They also carry a ton of other pure natural oils.

Recap of Neiman Marcus Fashion Show

Recap of Neiman Marcus Fashion Show

Hello Divas!

I hope life is just beautiful in your world! Last Friday I attended the Neiman Marcus Fashion at Lenox Square Mall, Atlanta, GA. The people were fabulous, the models gorgeous, and the clothes from Neiman Marcus beautiful. Of course it did not hurt that they served champagne. Lol! Check out some pics from the show!

1. Me striking a pose

2. Dapper and fashionable Neiman Marcus employee!

3. Turquoise was the color of the evening! So Island Chic!


4. Killer Platforms!

5. There was also Mens’ Fashions.


6. Black Latex. Although I think Latex pants are played out, this outfit was really street chic!

This event was so much fun! Plus they gave out awesome goody bags. The bags included a silk Nicole Miller scarf, satin sleep mask (every Diva should have one), Croc hat and wristbands (these items went to luxe hubby and luxe son), and tons of coupons!

I am really looking forward to attending the next Neiman Marcus fashion show!
