Return to Beauty (skin repair) / Satellite Radio / Martha Stewart

As my twitter followers know, I have a new car. And with my new car, I now have my satellite radio back (I am seiosly screaming for joy inside - I had it for years, and let it lapse and haven't had it in MONTHS! I really don't like current pop music or commercials, so this is very big for me. I also love talk radio including Fox News - which is why I'm politically ignorant right now, I haven't had it for months). But I digress.

My favorite satellite channel by far is Martha Stewart Living. I have been known to call the Whole Foods show, Morning Living show (Kim & Betsy are my favorite, so funny), Everday Food, Dr. Oz, Living Today...well, all the shows, really. I usually get on too (my questions are just THAT good -'s really not that difficult, they always pick up on the first ring).

Anyways, on Whole Foods this morning, they were talking about a new book called Return to Beauty by Narine Nikogosian. This book sounds fabulous. I will be getting everyone I know this book (after my personal review of course), for Christmas.

Did you know mashed potatoes with olive oil (not butter) is absoutely the best thing you can do for your neck skin, to keep it from sagging? And, walking with a book on your head is not just for posture anymore. It keeps your skin taught and wrinkle free. I can see me now, walking around with potatoes on my neck with a book on my head. Husband will think I have lost it!

What about milk (or yogurt), honey and flax for your face. At the age of 32, I have those dreaded between the eyebrow wrinkles. I tend to squint when I'm working and thinking which causes them. Okay, okay, I get them when I'm mad too. I want them gone.

This book has natural, already in your home, recipes for reliving such skin issues without the cost and expense and without the chemicals.

I am going to check it out and let you know if it's a keeper or not.


  1. Sounds interesting. I look forward to your review!

  2. I used to use a friend's internet account before he cancelled it :O( I always listened to Whatever on the Martha channel!

  3. Great! Now I have another book to add to my list. I'm so all about natural ways to deal with my aging. You should have seen me at my derm appt yesterday when they suggested botox-I was like, NO F-ing way. Deal with this another way. Potatoes, olive oil and book walking here I come. At least now I have something to do with my book! lol xoxo
