Odara Mineral Beauty’s quickest ever guide to detox skin…
So…another year has ended and a new one already begun. HELLOOOOOO 2017!!! I’ve been expecting you! Just WHERE has time gone! The chaos of Christmas seems so far away now as I realise we are half way through January already. In the past, the first few weeks of the new year have always been a bit of a bore for me. The excitement of the previous month is soon replaced with a desire to return to normality (whatever that may be) coupled with thoughts of getting through the long, dark, non-eventful, cold, damp, depressing-rest-of-winter days as quickly as possible and with a longing to wear bikinis again and sip cocktails in the warm sun. Usually, I’m adorning my faithful 24/7 M&S super insulated fleecy pj’s and sipping copious amounts of hot frothy cappuccinos and slurping home-made vegetable soup in an attempt to survive without going mad. (In my next life I plan to return as a hedgehog and hibernate…in a cocktail bar). The words ‘GROUNDHOG DAYYYYY’ resonate as every morning after waking I would look out my bedroom window to the same view of bleakness that can only be described as that ‘Bill Murray’ feeling. Stay strong, Amanda, I’d say determined to convince myself that summer is merely a stone’s throw away and those cocktails are in reach. Who am I kidding…..I live in Scotland!!! But not this year…
THIS year starts with thoughts and a view of a different kind. THIS year starts with a laptop and emails and an action plan, with hundreds of empty bottles and litres and litres of face cream formulas, designing labels and booking up-and-coming trade fairs and exhibitions. THIS YEAR starts with the launch of the next Odara Mineral Beauty products! WAYYYYY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE TOO!!! THIS year, I think, is going to be the year of all years! Still with hot frothy cappuccinos and home-made vegetable soup mind.
So, exactly WHAT has Odara Mineral Beauty got in store for you guys? Well….in an earlier blog I did mention that by the end of 2017 the aim was to have a nice niche range of makeup cosmetics for you all. If truth be told, I wrote that assurance thinking that as long as I get through the next 12 months unscathed at least I’d be happy. I’m a firm believer in everything happening for a reason and that we reap what we sow. Despite negative experiences I have always remained positive and live each day with gratitude focusing on the here and now, focusing on reality. Not very exciting at times, I agree. I’ve read so many PMA all the way publications even stalk, I mean, follow the teachings of various social media personalities who preach all that visualise and manifest your dream nonsense. And let me tell you…that nonsense really does work! HOW does it work? Well, you simply take the thoughts of your dreams and bring them to life. Visualise your goal, feel like you’ve already achieved it while doing so, set your intention and hand it over to the powers that be then go about your business. Forget about it for a while concentrating only on what’s in front of you. Before you can say ‘put the kettle on, Love, I need another cappuccino’ the Universe has provided! Just like now.
By mid February, our organic skincare line will be ready and available to buy. I’m so excited about this range! 100% natural, and jam-packed full of the most amazing nutritional ingredients, it will comprise of 11 products all designed for the makeup user and those of you with little precious time on your hands but still wanting your skin to look its best. The Odara Mineral Beauty skincare range features a cleansing oil, a cream cleansing wash, a choice of 2 toners, serums, eye creams, essential moisturisers and a fabulously indulgent 2-in-1 exfoliating mask that, when applied, makes you feel like you’ve stepped into a white, fluffy robe and into a 5-star spa in the Maldives. Odara Mineral Beauty organic skincare range will deep cleanse, brighten, tighten and nourish, creating that perfect base for your makeup and help keep you looking younger for longer. Your skin will never be the same again! By the end of March/beginning of April our mineral makeup line will have grown too with the addition of that previously promised veil, highlighter/concealer, choice of beautifully radiant blushes and an eye-popping-show-stopping mascara.
So it looks like we’re pretty much on track for World Domination, eh? I hope you will join us on our quest.
Lots of love, Amanda and the Odara Mineral Beauty Team x
