She's dangerous AND ethical! Tonya Kay is the world's ONLY professional female knife thrower (as seen on History Channel's "More Extreme Marksmen"). She also restores hot rods, dances with fire (as seen on NBC's "America's Got Talent") and shoots guns. The Most Dangerous Woman in Hollywood doubles as a long-term raw vegan, aggressive environmentalist and green philanthropist. She may shoot guns, but never at animals or people. She may crack whips, but only those which are leather-free in construction. She may sit in studio make up chairs, but on-camera as well as off, Tonya Kay insists that her cosmetics be cruelty-free. Look for Tonya Kay in cruelty-free cosmetics on Showtime's "Live Nude Comedy" (premiers July 16). Tonya Kay performs her Bullwhip Burlesque solo wearing exclusively Alima Pure mineral cosmetics, proving that the greenest option can also yield the best performance.
Tonya Kay has been an Alima Pure customer for several years and in the office, one of our favorite things is hearing what she's been up to. And she's always up to something interesting! We've seen Tonya Kay in a Trace Adkins video and a "We Can Solve It" commercial; we've read her e-book about eating raw vegan; and we've followed her experiences hanging out with elephants in Thailand. She leads an interesting life, and those things just barely scratch the surface.
Tonya Kay's commitment to treading lightly on our planet is not just talk--she walks the walk, but she does it with a sparkling smile and contagious joie de vivre. While we recognize that her latest project, "Live Nude Comedy" might not be everyone's cup of tea, her enthusiasm, ethics and "all-in" attitude are something most everyone can support. We think she's adorable and admirable.
"Live Nude Comedy" features actor/comedian Andy Dick along with a host of talented comics in a lively half hour of laugh-out-loud television hosted by American Pie's Shannon Elizabeth. 28 minutes of music, dance and pure hedonism fill each of "Live Nude Comedy's" 6 episodes, premiering July 16th at midnight. After Showtime's sexy special, watch for Tonya Kay playing the reoccurring CASSIDY in October's premiere of "Secret Girlfriend" on Comedy Central.

Happy New Year!
Do you ever have one of those days when you just feel lucky? Like maybe you should buy a lottery ticket lucky? Lucky you! It's great to feel lucky, even if you don't end up winning the lottery. We feel lucky when our skin is behaving nicely and our Satin Matte Foundation goes on like silk; when the eyeshadow colors we selected blend like a work of art. We feel lucky when we are filling orders from our wonderful customers, and reading all the delightful emails you send us.
Of course, there are those days that don't feel so lucky. Gravity seems to be working extra well, and you drop everything you touch. There are days that the calendar tells us should be unlucky. We try to not be superstitious, but some days can just feel jinxed.
We aren't making any specific promises, but we think there might be something to help you alleviate the fear of those predicted "unlucky" days. Carry your lucky coin, wear your lucky blouse, but also take a few moments to read our blog on days that seem as they might otherwise be troublesome. Perhaps you'll find some information that will make you feel more lucky! Lucky you!

If you are at all familiar with Portland, Oregon, you know we are rather infamous for our rain. We do get some snow during the winter, but most years it is only what you would call a “skiff,” and sometimes up to an inch or so. Because we don’t get much, the city usually pretty much shuts down when this happens. This time you might say that we had a substantial amount of snow. We had snow for the better part of two weeks, and it took a toll on the ability of some of us to get to work. Combined with the holidays, this mean that some orders have taken longer than usual to get out, and we apologize. As of December 30 are caught up, but if you are waiting for an order that you think should have arrived by now, be assured it will be there soon!
