A new year full of promise, good energy, and our coveted lip balms are back in stock!  Thank goodness for life's little things.  Winter on the east coast is rolling in like thunder and temperatures are dropping fast!  I'm so relieved to have boxes and boxes of lip balms because there is no worse feeling for me than CHAPPED LIPS. UGH.  Our lip balms are the super creamy and your Rx for beautiful lips!  I wear mine everyday whether I'm walking my dog, on a photo shoot, or skiing with the family.  Find me on the beach someday? I'm wearing it there too!  My lip balm has changed my life. Try it and see how it can change your life too!

Xoxo

Get Coco-nutty!

Who says you have to take aging lying down?  Aside from fillers and botox, there are many ways to slow down the aging process and even age gracefully.  I was taught at 12 years old to take care of my skin - this meant wash, moisturize, and wearing sunscreen when needed, and I know it has made all the difference!  I love to wear foundation as it evens out my skin tone, and just adds a beautiful glow without covering up my freckles.  Some foundation (most on the market) have sunscreen built in to the formula, saving a step and precious time.  This can be your be your best friend.  I like to mix my foundation with my favorite moisturizer to make my own BB cream  - (COCONUT oil is AMAZING....I can't say enough great things about this miracle moisturizer).  It does not have to be expensive moisturizer, whatever fits in your budget - the important part is that you moisturize.  You will often find that people who live in drier climates have to do double-duty when it comes to the skin on their face.  At age 39, I have slightly noticeable lines around my eyes and mouth when I laugh and I would not change those lines for the world.  Lines show you who you have become. I love knowing each day I see myself in the morning that those laugh lines were well earned and have the highest respect in my book.  For more DIY skin care tips, go to SELF.com for tips from the beauty editors at Self Magazine.

Meg's Miles - A Running Movement that Changed the Running World

Posted on January 27, 2014 by Shelissa Kearney | 0 Comments

I belong to a running group on Facebook; a group of amazing women and men out there encouraging each other with daily posts of running distances and times, and funny antidotes just to make you laugh about the world of running.  One of my favorite quotes posted recently says, "I run faster than the speed of slow."  Runners from all over are members of this group - beginners, intermediates, marathoners - all with the same goal...To run farther and faster than the run before!  It has taken me weeks to sit down and share the story about #Megsmiles.  As a mom and a runner, this tragedy felt very personal and each time I think about it my eyes well up with tears.

One member of the running group, a fantastically fit and high energy runner named Brooke Roney, was a friend of Meg Menzies, the runner who was training for the 2014 Boston Marathon when she was tragically struck and killed by a drunk driver during her morning run in Ashland, VA in January.  Meg was a mother of three children and the wife of Scott Menzies, an Ashland Police Sergeant.  From her families loss and Brooke's initiative, an unbelievable amount of support emerged from the running community from all over the world to help the Menzie's family.  After Meg's death, Brooke started an event on Facebook, Meg's Miles, thinking she would turn a tragic situation into something positive.  Over 96,000 runners all over the world have joined the event and are running in Meg's honor, and runners post pictures of their runs in Meg's honor with the hashtag #megsmiles. In a short amount of time,  a t-shirt fundraiser raised over $31,000 to help the Menzie family, and fellow runners are making running jewelry, and a photographer captured a beautiful moment in the sky of a cloud shape resembling a runner.  

A photograph of the running shoe memorial in Ashland, taken by Denise Mestauza-Taylor, stays in my mind above all else and speaks volumes about the running world and how much one person: a mom, a wife, a runner, meant to people - to some people that didn't know her she became an inspiration. Mary Jones, who knew Meg, said it best, "Carpe the heck out of each diem!" #megsmiles

The website www.megsmiles.com is being developed and live in a couple of days.  The site will bring awareness about runner safety, and drunk and distracted driving.

Honey & Beeswax

     When the founder of Shelissa Organics was a child, her fondest memories are of spending time on her family's farm on the Chesapeake Bay learning how to harvest honey from the hives with her grandfather. It harkens back to the days when children ran through fields until sunset, running into the house with handfuls of wildflowers, rare stones collected in their pockets, and dirt on their hands. To this day, she drizzles honey on her breakfast or in her tea everyday.

Honey and beeswax have long been documented for healing sore throats and for boosting the immune system. Seasonal allergy suffers are wise to eat local honey to reduce allergies and a teaspoon in a cup of warm milk can calm a cough. For centuries, honey has been used as an exfoliant for the body and gentle enough to use on the face and scalp. For 19 years Shelissa Organics® has crafted extraordinary products with ethically and sustainably harvested beeswax and locally found ingredients. Our time-honored process and unique formulas produce goods without parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, or non-GMO ingredients.
