Tooting Your Own Horn

Sometimes you just need to pat yourself on the back, am I right? I mean hell, if we aren't our own cheerleaders, we can't expect anyone else to join in on the fun, now can we?! I think sometimes the world of social media tricks us into thinking that self-promotion is self-indulgent. To a degree, I get it, but there's nothing wrong in promoting personal successes, goal achievement, etc.

With that in mind, I decided to break down some of my latest and greatest, if only to be able to look back on it one day and remember this exciting time in my life.

1. I took part in an amazing summit with fellow entrepreneurial powerhouses called Monetise Your Mission. Being able to talk about my passion for hard work and doing what I love was a breath of fresh air and I hope that anyone watching was able to feel inspired. To learn more about how you, too, can make money doing what you love, check out Monetise Your Mission.

2. I was able to work on the headlining spread in the May/June 2016 issue of Modern Luxury Hawai'i that hit newsstands over the weekend. Not only is it an incredible nationwide publication with offices across the U.S. , but the staff trusts my creative process and that is truly something that, as a writer, I am always grateful for. Pick up a copy if you're local and check out the spread or read the online version here

3. I teased a little bit last week about an exciting project this week and I am SO EXCITED to finally announce it. 
This week, I'll be doing a live cooking segment on the local morning show promoting my book, gluten free desserts and how you can make them in the comfort of your own home! Keep your eye out for a link to watch just as soon as I have it :)

Now that we've covered all of my exciting news, what do you have? Tell me everything - I'd love to help share in your excitement :)

With spring in full force and summer on the horizon, it means two things -- weddings and events. Everyone likes to take advantage of the nice weather for their party or celebration and I can't say I blame them!

Aside from what you might wear and how you're going to style your hair, the next step is your skin. Are you breaking out? Have you recently gotten a wax? Do you have a healthy glow? 

But Kait, you live in Hawaii and are constantly surrounded by sunshine -- why are you worried about having a healthy glow? Exposure to the sun can be deadly for me. A history of skin cancer combined with exposure to the sun, even in small doses, can wreak havoc on my epidermis.  

When I do go outside I'm covered head to toe in SPF, so to achieve an all-around glow I turn to JERGENS® Natural Glow® Daily Moisturizeravailable at Walmart. 

For the most natural-looking color, be sure to exfoliate before first use. I recommend JERGENS® Natural Glow® Color Primer In-Shower Scrub.  I like to apply my moisturizer right after I've taken a shower and before I get into bed for the night, making sure to smooth on evenly and thoroughly just as I would with any other moisturizer.  

I also can't get enough of JERGENS® Natural Glow® +FIRMING Daily Moisturizer. This firming glow moisturizer gradually firms up skin in two weeks and honestly -- we all could use a little bit of that as we get older! #highandtightbaby
I think what I might love more than the firming is the smell. Or I guess I should say the lack of smell. All of the JERGENS® products I've tried don't bother my nose, which is a real feat. No flowery, overpowering scent here!

PRO TIP: Choose the right shade based on your natural skin tone and use daily until you have achieved the desired level of color, then continue to reapply 1-2x a week

With all this talk of glows and tans, it's time for me to get up on my high horse. There is no such thing as a healthy tan. Glow from a bottle, sure, but baking your skin under the sun for hours and hours with no protection? NO.

 May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and a great time to start being extra cautious with your skin. To give you a little help, I've put together a list of tips to make sure you're being sun smart this summer!

I love that  JERGENS®  gives me a healthy glow that makes me feel confident and I know I'm not doing damage to my skin! 

What are your secrets for achieving that sought after glow?
