The FIX YA FACE - Inner Beauty & Outer Wellness Blog welcomes our avid readers and motivation seekers. It with a true pleasure and respect for your time that I aim to keep you interested with positive quotes, fresh fruit ideas and interviews with some of today's brightest women. Once again, thank you for continuing with us and to the newcomers I say thank you for joining the journey:) I am forever humbled by the kind words and dialogue that is exchanged via emails, here at FYF. Taking the challenge to motivate each other is a heart warming event that should be bigger than a trend. Although, trends are created by ordinary people that persist in their movement. Doing it over and over again. If it looks worthy-like their "doing it up", then you may want to do that too. Let your movements here on this earth turn into authentic moments worthy of capturing this time in your life. Let me be one of the first to applaud you on whatever is to come:)

Enjoy this wonderful month of October ladies and gentlemen! Hope life experiences were good for you last month or if you feel it can still be a little better this month- RE-DO IT! Repaint your kitchen retry on those affordable shoes, redo your thesis/report or just relax. Deserving another chance begins with what you feel about yourself. So feel it!. The second time around might make you smile. AND THAT is how you have fun, have faith and FIX YA FACE! (Have a safe and fun Holloween this month)

Exercise of the month:
Say/Think something true & good about someone you meet today then watch that blessing come right back to you.

Giving All Things Good Another Chance To Be Even Better ...Monday October 1, 2007


One of the sweetest things about life is your abundant opportunities. That's right-as long as you are alive, there IS more for you to do-have-and be here. When you recognize your wealth (well-being) as you go on with your daily routine, you can only be thankful. Try not to let a difficult decision stop you just because it stumps you.
Take a chance. Heck, take a second chance. It's all yours. Give colorful fruits a second chance to be a part of your healthy eating plan. Eating plans are meant to be revised. You never really do bad. You just have to do different sometimes.

This October reschedule some quiet time for yourself. Regroup. Revisit your imagination by reading a fictional book or restart your listing of secret recipes for that family cookbook. Do something fun. Fun can be free.Free your mind.

The new Fruit of The Month takes juicy to a whole new level. This firm specimen does the body good when swallowed but it's goodness is spectacular when it's all over your face(wow! where's that come from? lol) Riped and ready is how we like it. Size doesn't really matter (stop it! ya'll are too much, lol) Yes you guessed it. We are talking about the about the Tomato.

Tomatoes can be baked, juiced, sauteed or just sliced and eaten! Your neighborhood supermarket might have several types at affordable prices. The types vary from Early, Mid Season to Late Season.Tomatoes are loaded with Lycopene. Lycopene is a proven antioxidant, that may lower the risk of certain diseases including cancer and heart disease. Tomatoes Vitamin A and Vitamin C protects the body from free radicals that cause tissue/cellular damage & aids in promoting healthy gums

Today frowning is not an option, doubting yourself (or others) will not do either. Focus. Think thoughts that will make you smile genuinely. FIX YA FACE. Feel Good. Look Great. And do well out there:)

Tomatoe Ideas

Tomato Juiced:
With cold water, I rinsed 5 tomatoes and I sliced them before placing the slices in a bowl. One by one, I drop a sliced into my juicer until all has been juiced and fallen into a quart size container Then I take the fiber/shreds of the fruits and re-enter them in the juicer to get as much juice as I can from the skins. I placed a scoop of the remaining pulp, along with ice, into the juiced remains. Put a top on the container then shake well. Served on the day of juicing with breakfast and lunch.

The tomato pulp left from juicing was used as a extra cleanser. I washed my face with glycerin soap then rinsed with cold water, then warm water. Then the tomato pulp was applied and left on my face for 30 minutes. I rinsed the pulp off and felt refreshed,

LipGlass:Lustre Glass by MAC Cosmetics a subtle way to be reward your lips. This creamy glaze Lipgloss shines for hours at a time and soothes beyond compare for me. I appreciate the Lipglass because I can give lipsticks a break but still feel soft. The enticing scents Love Nectar, Star Nova and Morning Glory (to name a few) come in complimenting shades for diverse complexions. Sometimes all you need is a little moisturizer and Lipglass to take on the day:) If you try it, feel free to write us at FYF about it.

3. When did you know that you wanted to start Ozone Magazine? What are you most proud of that you've done? It wasn't really a conscious decision, it just happened gradually and people enjoyed it so I wanted to keep doing it.

He was right.

Accomplishments, doing power moves, being my own boss, giving to others, my significant other makes me feel beautiful and in a physical sense.

2. With the success of EPYDEMIK LLC and your extensive DJing schedule allowing you to travel the globe, what are your day to day activities? It varies from days to weeks to months.While on tour, generally, I wake up at 10am, get breakfast, meet crew in front of the hotel, travel all day to the next location and check-in or I either go with the artists to do their promo radio and store runs. I like to do those because I get to network or I go back at the hotel and rest. Then go to the gym, go to sound check before the artists, stay in the dressing room and hope for food. Then it's showtime, after-party, back to the hotel. While not on tour, I either go to the gym, yoga or dance class everyday to keep myself in shape. I also walk and take care of my puppy. Now I go to school 4 times a week for business. I am also enrolled in a acting school. I do my music at home and DJ once/twice a week. I also edit and produce segments for .

I wanted to DJ since my early teens just to say I could do it too but I only became one professionally a few years ago when DJ Roc Raida actually gave me some of his equipment to start up. I'm most proud of how I have organized an annual outdoor hip-hop event for the community of Cote-Des-Neiges, a more so urban region, in m
y hometown in Montreal and that it is 10 years running. it's now called "Gravity Rock". I wanted to give back to the kids. As far DJ'ing, I'm just happy I am entertaining people and making people hype about music.
