Girl Talk: DIY Skin and Body Care (Part 8), a.k.a., “The White Article”

Originally, I had photos of a multi-cultural assortment of "Earthy Girls", dressed in white, for this next article in my well received "Color Series" of DIY Skin and Bodycare articles, "The White Article".

But I called an "audible" (football term), cuz' these photos of Australian fitness blogger and model,
Micah Gianneli, simply blew away the others, at least in my "Professional Girl Watcher's" eye…….

Though I'm an "earthy" kinda guy, I don't discriminate against "Glamour Girls", I feel yawl too, so do your "thang". But let's work together, I'm just putting a challenge to all the "Sophisticated Divas"….

……to put aside the overpriced and toxic skin care from Macy's, Saks Fifth, etc., for 3 months, try DIY skin/bodycare, and notice your better looking skin/hair. And, you'll have less toxins in the body.

You are absolutely right, Doug – and I bow to your superior girl watching skills. What a beautiful woman! I love the recipe for DIY Dry Shampoo. I use a commercial brand a lot and it’s expensive. I just ordered the clay from Amazon and am looking forward to seeing how it works. Thanks for all the great tips.



Hey Bobbi,

Yeah, the stresses and struggles of blogging for health and wellness, I mean, trying to choose between which lovely ladies will go into any given article. But a great job if a man can get it into his routine {chuckle}.

But like I said before, the photos shape the article sometimes, so I spontaneously thought I’d be even more creative and venture out to a new target audience after viewing Micah Gianneli’s photos, and go at this front the “Sophisticated Diva’s” theme, as opposed to the “Earthy Girls in White” theme. That allows me put the thought if holistic lifestyle into a whole new group of people’s minds.

…….and it seems to work flow after I woke up and looked at the final piece of art. Saying this with as much humility as I can muster, but while all the other wellness bloggers are trying to catch up, so far as connecting with the “social media masses”, I’m pulling away!!!

When I woke up and reviewed the final product, I said…..”THAT’S A RECORD, THAT’S A RECORD” !!!!
