Fashion, Beauty, Health and More at Southern Women's Show


The 2019 Southern Women's Show in Nashville, TN
The 2019 Southern Women's Show took place March 7-10 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, providing aisle after aisle of fashion, beauty, skincare and health products of particular interest to women. Approximately 350 vendors were on hand to tempt southern women to try something new.

The female-friendly expo featured cooking demos, fashion shows and a smattering of celebrities and semi-celebrities including Savannah Chrisley, Ms. Cheap, the TDOTHottie, Greg Woerdeman, Tyson Beckford, and, yours truly. I had the privilege to walk the runway as part of the DAN Talent Group Models and Talent fashion show.

One of the more interesting booths included the dashsmiles tooth whitening booth where women sat for 15 minutes to 1/2 hour with a tooth whitening apparatus in their mouth. I ran into my friend Alicia Lajoie with her beautiful daughter there, and Alicia reported later that the device worked wonders.

There were a few food vendors on hand to feed hungry ladies, but a little more variety would have been nice. I ended up having a grilled cheese sandwich served with beef and blue cheese.

With jewelry, purses, boots and more--the Southern Women's Show lived up to expectations. It is a great day out with the girls and a fun way to celebrate International Women's Day.

Trivia: International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8. It became a socialist and communist holiday after women got the right to vote in Russia in1917 and was adopted by the feminist movement around 1967.

Eating Healthy Garbage


If the title of this blog posts conjures up images of someone eating from a trash can, you aren’t far from wrong. I have discovered a new way to recycle food by making a healthy broth from the pieces and parts we would throw away. I now freeze small bags of...well... garbage to use to make healthy meals.

We throw away the outer green layer of an onion because it is a little rubbery, but I toss it in a freezer bag. After harvesting herbs I take the leftover bare branches and twigs and add them to the freezer bag. The same goes for eggshells, parts of celery I discard, bones, etc. They all get tucked away in my freezer until I have enough to make a tasty broth.

When I am ready for some more, I just grab a bag of discarded food from the freezer, toss in a little seasoning, and add some water. After cooking in a crockpot in low for about 20 hours, I strain out the broth and throw the garbage away. The broth is so healthy with all its nutrients and is wonderful in soups and rice dishes. This broth is perfect for penny-pinchers and people who don’t like to waste anything as well as those who like healthy home-cooked dishes. So save your garbage to eat later. You’ll be glad you did!

National Fragrance Day Coming Up March 21


Most of us have had that experience of a fragrance triggering a long-forgotten memory. I remember after my mother Died catching a whiff of someone's Channel Number Nine as they passed by and immediately having several flashbacks of her wearing the same perfume.

Around the turn of the century, I worked for a year in the Macy's Fragrance Department. I was hesitant at first because I had allergies at the time and some were triggered by perfumes, but working in the fragrance department cured me of my perfume allergies.

Of course, today money-making alarmist groups like the Environmental Working Group are working overtime to solicit your funds, scaring you by finding toxins in everything, including your favorite perfumes. The truth is the levels of perfume chemicals are regulated in products and is not likely to cause you harm unless you are allergic, like I was, or have a condition like asthma.
My Golden Pothos and a few favorite fragrances

However, that's not to say you want to spray your favorite perfume while you light your favorite scented candles and spray your favorite air freshener at the same time inside the same small, closed room. You can have too much of good thing, and fragrances should be treated with respect. It's best to use fragrances and scented products of any kind in rooms that can be aired out, or in rooms with live houseplants. In fact, I share my computer space with a Golden Pothos. See Is there a danger from scented products?

So enjoy your favorite fragrances on National Fragrance Day. Just be sure you share the room with your favorite house plant!

Skin, Health & Beauty Japan on Facebook



A brand-new page has launched on Facebook to help Japanese men and women have healthier skin and creamier complexions and to introduce them to the best skincare products in the U.S. for Japanese skin.

Skin, Health & Beauty Japan will feature health tips as well as skincare and beauty tips that will be useful to anyone but will focus on Japanese skin.

Japanese women, like other Asians. have a thinner outer layer of the skin which is more susceptible to scarring and dryness because the weaker lipid barrier causes moisture to evaporate easily. Some of our tips will address the specific concerns of Japanese skin.

States with the Best & Worst Dental Health-- How Does TN Rank?

Tooth abscess

With February being National Children’s Dental Health Month and dental health having an effect on appearance, general well-being and even earnings, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018's States with the Best & Worst Dental Health.

In order to determine which places have the healthiest teeth and gums in the U.S., WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 25 key metrics. The data set ranges from share of adolescents who visited a dentist in the past year to dental treatment costs to share of adults with low life satisfaction due to oral condition.

Tennessee's Score

So, how does Tennessee compare to the other 50 states in terms of healthy teeth? The great State of TN came in at a disappointing #38 due to poor dental habits and tooth care as well as oral health risk. Another factor contributing to Tennessee's dental woes and under-performing ranking is Tenn. has the fewest dentists per residents with only 16 dentists per 100,000 Tennesseans.

Are Essential Oils Safe?


We hear a lot of hype today about natural products like essential oils as well as related products like herbal supplements and all-natural beauty products, but are these products all they are cracked up to be. More importantly, are essential oils and other so-called all-natural products safe?

It is so important to realize that all-natural products are NOT by definition safe and can be harmful to your health. For instance, poison ivy is all natural. So is rattlesnake venom.

It is equally important to understand that the all-natural industry is a huge, money-making industry with its own big spin machine as well as mom and pop websites and Facebook pages all too happy to regurgitate the latest spin without any scientific fact checking

When asked if products labeled :natural" or "organic" are by default safe,  the FDA states that not all natural products are safe and that all ingredients--both natural and clinical--must meet the same safety requirements.


One of the worst problems produced by the all-natural industry is its hype against medicine and the fact some people delay going to a doctor because they are trying to treat a condition "naturally." My own mother delayed going to her doctor while she rubbed oils on a small lesion on her leg for months. By the time she went to the doctor, the melanoma had spread to her lymph nodes. She died a few years later after many painfully invasive surgeries.

So do your due diligence when looking at essential oils, herbal supplements and other all-natural products. Understand you are looking at a big, money-making industry. The people producing these oils often don't have clinical trials, science or facts behind them, and the people selling them have little to no training and just want to make some extra money.
