Save the Date! November 2014 Body Mind Spirit Expo *PDX*

I will be one of the opening lecturers for the Body Mind Spirit Expo November 1-2, 2014!  I went to the BMSE a few years ago and always in the back of my mind, planned to have a booth someday.  I'm so excited to try something new this fall!  

I'd love to see you!  Make sure you stop by the Okamura Farmacopia booth #201 for hands-on chakra balancing demos, FREE make up touch ups, and lotions/potions galore to spray, sample and mindfully spa it out.  : )

Three Peel Deal!

At last, at last!  It's Peel time!  Despite wearing sunscreen and antioxidants, our summer damage has been done.  How's your skin doing?

This week I applied a PCA Peel (Hydroquinone Free) peel, followed with an Oxygenating Treatment--loving it!  The Oxy Treatment seems to mitigate a bit of the dryness/tightness I normally feel with these enhanced Jessner's peels.  Vita Balm is working as moisturizer, I'm also blending a DMAE Firming Creme / Being True mineral make up powder as liquid foundation for a little extra uumph. 

*BLOG SPECIAL*

3 peels for the price of oneFresh from my PCA Advanced Peeling Protocols training, summer's almost over--let's have some fun!

Three peels in three months, which is the generally recommended schedule = your skin looks amazing just in time for Thanksgiving

About Peels

The catch?  They must be used by November 27, 2013. 

BUY NOW

I have over 20 peels/customization options--squee!  Once a geek, always a geek.

Happy Peel Season!

Wedding Fever

There was no wedding, just a signing of papers, Chris' brother, and a slobbery overgrown boxer dog for witness. Then we went home and ate king crab in front of the T.V.

Weddings are like horses, pretty and I do not want one of my own.  I enjoyed my sisters' weddings but my favorite wedding was when my theater mentor, triangle productions! founder Don Horn, and his partner, Jeff, got married. 

It was back in 2004, the day they legalized marriage in Oregon.  When they found out the State of Oregon was issuing marriage licenses, they raced right out and secured one that morning.  Don's business partner, Myra, and I ran across the street from the theater to buy pretty little bouquets from one of my favorite florists, Jill at Starflower. 

We waited giddily together in a long line, Don and Jeff gave their bouquets to a lesbian couple we stood next to who didn't have flowers.  What a beautiful, generous act on your own wedding day!  : )

Urbaca will have a table at our first wedding show, Committed: Supporting Mr. + Mr., Mrs. + Mrs., and Mr. + Mrs.!  There will be samples of Okamura Farmacopia a-plenty, our awesome Make Up Artist, Gretchen, will do demos of Being True Skin Tint firming foundation and Blinc waterproof mascara--in my book, the only two must-have things for your wedding day.  Well, besides pretty flowers, crab, and Reggie the slobbery dog.

I will be there with my Oracle Belline fortune telling cards. 

We have a guest list for free tickets for Committed if you're interested, just call Urbaca 503.241.5030 or email me sherry@okamurafarm.com and I'll put you on the list!
