YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF INSPIRATION, GUIDANCE AND POSITIVE THOUGHTS TO STRENGTHEN THE MIND AND SOUL TO GET YOU THROUGH THE WEEK ON A PINK FLUFFY CLOUD.
THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
THE KEY TO HAPPINESS IS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALL THAT HAPPENS IN YOUR LIFE THE GOOD AND THE BAD. WHATEVER HAPPENS IN YOUR LIFE YOU HAVE TO OWN IT WHETHER YOU ARE ENJOYING THE EXPERIENCE OR NOT. IF AN EVENT IN YOUR LIFE IS CAUSING YOU ANXIETY IT IS A CHANCE TO QUESTION WHAT LESSON LIFE IS TRYING TO TEACH YOU. WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM THIS ? HOW HAS THE SITUATION DEVELOPED YOU AS A PERSON ?
TODAY, REMEMBER, THAT ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY NOT HIDING FROM IT IS THE ONLY WAY OF DISCOVERING TRUE HAPPINESS AND FULFILMENT AND YOUR TRUE PURPOSE OF YOUR JOURNEY.

RESTORE OLD FRIENDSHIPS
WE ALL HAVE PEOPLE THAT FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER WE LOSE CONTACT WITH. WE BECOME BUSY WITH LIFE AND WHEN FRIENDSHIPS ARE NOT NURTURED THEY TEND TO GET SIDELINED UNTIL THEY FADE FROM VIEW. AS TIMES PASSES IT BECOMES INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND GET BACK IN TOUCH. YOUR FRIEND WILL BE FEELING JUST AS AWKWARD THINKING THAT YOUR LIFE MAY HAVE MOVED ON WITHOUT HER/HIM.
SO, TODAY THINK ABOUT GREAT PAST FRIENDS THAT YOU HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH ALONG THE WAY AND PICK UP THE PHONE AND TELL THEM HOW MUCH YOU HAVE MISSED THEM AND START TO PICK UP THE THREADS AND KNIT YOUR RELATIONSHIP BACK TOGETHER. NEW YEAR IS A GREAT TIME TO DO THIS AND A PERFECT EXCUSE TO SEND A HNY MESSAGE .
GOOD FRIENDS ARE HARD TO FIND BUT EASY TO LOSE TOUCH WITH. I AM SURE YOUR FRIEND WILL BE DELIGHTED TO HEAR FROM YOU…….EVEN IF IT WAS A FORCED SEPARATION AND BAD WORDS WERE EXCHANGED.
THE ONLY ADDENDUM I WILL ADD TO THIS IS IF THE FRIENDSHIP WAS TOXIC OR DRAINED YOU. THESE FRIENDSHIPS ARE BETTER LEFT IN THE PAST. IF IT WAS YOU THAT CAUSED THE TOXICITY ASSURE YOUR FRIEND THAT YOU RECOGNISE THAT YOU WERE THE PROBLEM, APOLOGISE AND SEE IF YOU CAN RECONCILE.
GOOD LUCK TEAM ! LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GET ON.
JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: IF YOU GET THE IMPRESSION THAT YOUR FRIEND DOES NOT WANT TO RESTORE THE FRIENDSHIP LEAVE IT THERE DONT FORCE IT. DO NOT BE A STALKER. YOU WILL GUAGE THIS ON ONE PHONE CALL . IF YOU ARE UNSURE THEN TEXT FIRST IF YOU FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE. OR ALTERNATIVELY SEND A LITTLE ‘MISSING YOU’ CARD TH THEIR ADDRESS.
Yes girls and boys its the middle of Winter but it is time to get your glow on to give you an instant lift !
If you are still getting this wrong I think you are probably using the wrong product. There are soo many bad tanning products on the market even in this advanced area of the beauty market. I have tried practically EVERY tanning product on the market, all the ones recommended by magazine beauty editors ( who are usually on advertising endorsements). So listen up ladies (and gentlemen) I am going to let you into an insider secret (unsponsored !!) CLARINS SELF TANNING MILKY LOTION wins by a country mile. So the first thing to do is arm yourself with the right product and a good body brush!
Here are some more that I love…….
PLEASE CLICK ON THE URL AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE VIEWING THE IMAGES.
SELF TAN SHOP
PREP, PREP, PREP
Shave Legs and bikini line. Self tanning after waxing can lead to little bumps and rashes.
Exfoliate . No need to splash out on expensive exfoliators. Use sugar and olive oil combined. Pay particular attention to elbows and knees.
Body brush in long upward strokes to polish the surface of the skin.
Dry yourself thoroughly.
IN THE BATHROOM
There is no real need to use gloves for Clarins Self Tanning Milk it is not messy. But wash your hands in between the application especially if you have fake nails as they do get stained within minutes with any self tan product.
Use long sweeping motions. I personally think you get a more even coverage than circular motions as we are often advised.
Pay particular attention to feet and hands.
Use less product on knees and elbows.
If you have a partner get them to do your back. I never do my back as this product leaves a beautiful golden glow rather than a muddy dark tan, so it blends seamlessly. Anyway whoever sees your back AND your front at the same time ???
I also us t the Clarins Self tan on my face but use sparingly all you want is a light golden healthy glow.
DO NOT GET DRESSED IMMEDIATELY. With any self tan product you want it to set evenly. The last thing a girl needs is self tan on her clothes. Wait an hour. Do the vacuuming naked. Whatever. Patience girls !
Now you are ready to face the world with a beautiful healthy glow. Who needs to bake for hours in the sunshine. Although it is important to get a healthy dose of Vitamin D from the sunlight EVERY day. Good for bones and great for seratonin to lift your spirit. Everyone is happy when the sun is shining !
JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: Self tan is available in many guises. Towelettes, mist, gel, cream, spray, mousse, drops .or oil never has there been so much choice . Although there are still bad self tan formulas on the market so it is all about buy and try to find the perfect one for you.

MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL…………. I am going to ease you gently into 2023 as after all it has been a tough year and its now time to take back control !
So as it is the time of Year for renewals and clear outs , all I want you to do is take a good long look at yourself in the mirror. Really look at that person and acknowledge all your hopes and fears, the challenges you faced in 2022 and maybe continue to face.
Now think about the improvements you want to make this year FOR YOU! Not for everyone else , not for the world. not because society dictates who you should be.
How can I be happier ?
How can I feel happier ?
How can I look better ?
How can I improve my life to bring about positivity ?
What steps do I need to get me there?
Write all the thoughts that come to you , however random and jot them into your Midweek mantra Journal. From this period of self reflection some goals will be organically defined and not forced. Do it today !
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU ! WE CAN GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.
JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: THIS MAY SEEM A LITTLE SELFISH TO CONCENTRATE ON YOURSELF. BUT REMEMBER A HAPPY YOU IS A HAPPY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
