Do you know the new summer skincare regimens – harnesses the power of the cactus and shares the story of life reinvented as an entrepreneur after 60 in Hollywood. Robin McDonald is the celebrity esthetician, actress, writer and extreme cactus enthusiast behind KINDri.

Embodying the holistic lifestyle of the Southwest, you’ll find her formulas are infused with the potent plant based components of the southwest like organic prickly pear cactus seed oil, apple stem cell, aloe vera, avocado and citrus.

Discover the LA-based brand and creator/founder that Charlize Theron considers her “go to”. Robin McDonald’s passion and care for the wellness of skin is evident in KINDri’s mantra which is to not only be kind to your skin but the earth as well.

The cactus is living out its fame lately in pop culture. Mini cacti are becoming the new house plant while images of this prickly plant adorn our clothing, bedding and linens.

McDonald points out that potent cactus oil secretions in KINDri Skin Care naturally increase cellular turnover while strengthening your skin’s ability to take on the elements and stresses of everyday life. Ingredients like organic prickly pear cactus seed oil have multiple anti-aging properties that stimulate collagen and hydrate and plump skin.

Mermaid Soul – Pearl and Leather Wrap Bracelet with Mermaid Button

$59.00

Mermaid Women are… very confusing. As beings of the Wild Feminine Divine, they are creatures of beautiful contradiction and wondrous paradox. They can be one thing, yet at the same time, be it’s complete opposite. Sweet and childlike, but wise and Queenly. Ravishingly sexual yet pure and innocent. Extroverted and introverted. They can hold two contradicting emotions or beliefs at once, with ease. Mermaid women are shapeshifters, able to embody all sides of the All at all times.

Pearl is the “Stone of Truth, Faith and Love,” enhances personal integrity and helps provide focus and deep meaning to the object of your attention, bringing you wisdom and spiritual guidance. Pearl signifies sincerity, faith and loyalty to your cause. Pearls help one connect with the Goddess, the ultimate feminine energy. Pearls have been used to treat disorders of the digestive tract and muscular systems, as well as to aid fertility and to ease childbirth. 

Strung Fresh Water Pearls alternating with midnight dark crystals. Added super soft leather with a double knot as closure. The Antique Silver Color Mermaid 9/16 inch ( 15 mm ) Pewter Metal Button completes this mermaid soul bracelet. Handmade with Love in California.

Handcrafted jewelry inspires two types of value. There’s the monetary value expensive diamonds and gems provide. The second type of value is sentimental. A piece of jewelry that has meaning and purpose can offer more value than opulence. For jewelry designer Szilvia Gogh, pieces can be beautiful and say something too. This is the philosophy you’ll find within the collections of Gogh Jewelry Design.

Wash Your Nose for Better Breathing!

You wash your hands, eat your veggies and stay away from sick people, all in an effort to stay healthy. But there’s one more thing you can do to stay healthier – wash your nose. That’s right, washing your nose is good for you, and there’s a multitude of studies to prove it. Nasopure is the comfortable way to breathe better, naturally.

Nasopure’s buffered saline nasal wash is designed to flush away the allergens, irritants and infectious particles you breathe in every day. Your filter, the nose, processes 10,000 liters per air each day. Does it make sense to clean this filter? Science Says Yes. Nasopure washes the nasal passages before these irritants have a chance to invade the body and wreak havoc – got you it now? If so, get it tomorrow by shopping on Amazon Prime.

Nasopure’s unique design offers a user controlled flush with patented water lines to ensure the proper flow along the nasal floor, avoiding the  common complaints of drowning sensation. Not Nasopure. The salt packets have the highest buffering content, offering an effective and soothing experience.

It’s different than other rinses because it doesn’t push debris into sinus cavity but flushes along the nasal floor, actually encourages natural sinus drainage. The patented ergonomic designed bottle along with the ideal saline and buffering makes this the one for comfort and effectiveness and ease of use.

Don’t want the kids to get the flu, don’t like having asthma attacks, tired of your spouse constantly sneezing due to allergies? Nasopure can help stop those problems before they start! It can also help combat sinus infections, colds, influenza, relieve congestion, help you stay healthy while traveling, expel occupational irritants and more. And when you stay healthy, you can avoid having to overuse medications. So clean your nose with Nasopure and breathe better naturally!

Why You’ll Love Nasopure:

  • Comfortable enough for even a two-year-old to use
  • Resealable cap & travel friendly
  • BPA Free
  • Affordable
  • Free of Chemicals – All Natural
  • Perfect balance saline mix
  • Easy to use
  • Developed by a pediatrician using a mothers wisdom

About Nasopure:

Nasopure was developed by pediatrician Dr. Hana Solomon after seeing the need for a comfortable solution to nasal health. She wanted to extend her oath – First Do No Harm and is passionate about helping people breathe easier, naturally. She started BeWell Health, LLC in 2007 to offer Nasopure, The Most Comfortable Nose Wash In The World, in the hopes of reducing the public’s use of unnecessary and harmful medication and promoting patient empowerment through sharing knowledge. Nasopure is now sold around the world. Dr. Hana says “Our prime directive is KEEPING THE WORLD CLEAN, one itchy, snotty, drippy, sneezy, congested nose at a time!”

Don’t worry, BrEathe HAPPY!

Through his publishing company, Pennywhistle Press, which he established with his wife, di Suvero has consistently published the work of many unknown New Mexico writers from small communities whose talents would have gone unnoticed without his support. Those writers include the likes of Joan Logghe, Renée Gregorio, John Brandi, Judyth Hill and Luci Tapahanso, all now well-known New Mexico writers. di Suvero was a key force in founding several important and long-standing literary organizations and programs in New Mexico including the Poetry in the Schools program, New Mexico Book Association, PEN New Mexico,  New Mexico Literary Arts (formerly The Poetry Center of New Mexico), and the Live Poets Society. As the Director of the National Poetry Association he assisted in establishing National Poetry Week, which has now grown into National Poetry Month and celebrated across the country.

After formal training at the Portland Museum Art School and the Institute for American Indian Arts and the development of her own style, Swentzell began to create full-length clay figures that represent the complete spectrum of the human spirit. She feels that many people are out of touch with their environment and hopes relating to her expressive characters will help them get back in touch with their surroundings and feelings. Her figures represent a full range of emotions and irrepressible moods. Swentzell often focuses on interpretative female portraits attempting to bring back the balance of power between the male and female, inherently recognized in her own culture. Additionally, she increasingly uses a powerful sense of humor to communicate. Though steeped in her own culture, Swentzell’s work demonstrates an astounding universality, speaking to people of all cultures.  Awards for her work include the Spirit of the Heard Award (Heard Museum, Phoenix, AZ), the Native Treasures Living Treasures Award (Santa Fe), a Santa Fe Community Foundation Award, and awards for specific work from the Southwest Association of Indian Arts Indian Market and the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market.
