December may just be the most difficult month to take care of yourself. Because we know most of our customers are spending the month thinking of (and doing things for) others, we want to give you a little treat. We have created a beautiful, limited edition shade of our popular Organic Nourishing Lipbalm...Quince! Now you may be wondering, "why did they make a yellow lip balm?" But Quince is not the color of the quince fruit, but the Quince flower. A delicious, bright red, with a slight hint of sparkle, Quince is brighter than Holly Berry and more red than Sweet Pea.
Tips for how to have a safe Halloween are everywhere this time of year, but most of them overlook the importance of safe Halloween makeup. Many costumes require a bit of makeup, but the ingredients of those pre-packaged Halloween makeup kits that are in all of the stores right now are more frightening than the looks they create. So here is proof, you can create some great Halloween looks using only Alima Pure mineral makeup!
This months Naturally Gorgeous model, Kristen Ulmer, enters a room like a power surge, crackling with enthusiasm and energy. But ask her to sit, (to have her makeup done) and she is still; calm and centered. Just seeing how easily she shifts from one mode to the other and how entirely comfortable and joyful she is in her skin, it makes you wonder...how can I get some of that? And you can, visit Kristen's website to learn about all she offers! Kristen has mastered the art of living in the moment, and she is living each moment to its fullest. To say she is inspiring to be around is an understatement!

So, we put our heads together to come up with a few lust-worthy incarnations of this fall favorite.
Back in May, I had the opportunity to work as the makeup artist on an amazing project. Joni Kabana, an award-winning visual artist and photojournalist, and the woman behind the camera on our Naturally Gorgeous model shoots, was going to be shooting a calendar for a local yoga studio, and needed makeup for the models. Being familiar with my work, and the way that Alima Pure photographs, Joni asked if I would come and help out. The project, she explained, was to spread the word about a series of classes at The Yoga Project, a studio in the Sellwood area of Portland, called “Yoga for The Larger Woman.”
