I’ve been fascinated by the moon and the tides for as long as I can remember. It was in the recent decades that I’ve been exposed to a new type of energy channeling and cleansing.

Almost the full moon, I’ve gathered my dreams and intentions and set out to recharge and rejuvenate the soul and the senses. I take pride in taking the time to listen and learn from my own experiences and intuition.

Purposely took my healing energy tools on a special pilgrimage to the northshore and spent the day just for me. My solitude, my sanity, my rituals. Finding that grounding space where one can just be, is possibly the magic.

Celebrating you, AJ

Beauty, Island Life


The holiday hours is leaving its imprint on my face. After 10-12 hour days and is it day 11-12? I am needing lots of self care and love!

Good thing I am no stranger to a good time. If I can figure out how to do it, even better.

Enter a mask I was gifted a few months ago. I’ve always been a fan of anything tatcha, so when I got my hands on this, I couldn’t wait to try it!

What it is:
A creamy anti-aging mask—packed with Japanese beautyberry, two types of vitamin C, and AHAs from seven fruits—that unveils softer, glowing skin.

Solutions for:
– Dullness and uneven texture
– Dark spots and uneven skin tone
– Fine lines and wrinkles

If you want to know more…
Reveal remarkably softer, smoother skin with this creamy rinse-off treatment mask. The formula features two types of vitamin C: a water-soluble vitamin C derivative that absorbs quickly for an immediate glow and an oil-soluble vitamin C derivative that remains in skin longer, providing antioxidant protection from UV damage for a brighter, more even-toned appearance over time. The mask is also powered by the Japanese beautyberry, a superfruit rich in antioxidants that was found to stabilize vitamin C, maximizing its effectiveness. A gentle 10 percent AHA complex of seven fruits removes debris and the buildup of dead skin cells to visibly improve skin texture and support the natural production of new skin cells. Tatcha’s signature trio of Japanese anti-aging superfoods—green tea, rice, and algae—helps to restore a more youthful appearance.

There we have it. An evening of self pampering before we dive into another work week.

At least I’ll  have radiant glowing skin. I’ll worry about everything else when I get there.
