The FIX YA FACE - Inner Beauty & Outer Wellness Blog is on repeat! Going high tech with a higher energy. Pressing repeat to note positive terms that need to be said, actions that were done and accomplishments (along with acts of kindness) to keep you going. Repeating our welcome to the veteran viewers and extending an invitation to the new readers. BUT we are also on delete! Pressing delete on thoughts of procrastination (by not putting off movement towards our joy), frustration (by seeking steps to clarity on a case by case basis) and unwarranted complication (by not absorbing someone else's life issues as our own). YOU have the ability to choose by pressing either button. So PRESS ON! Speak of a balance with the intention of sustaining elements and/or subtracting elements in your world. A Higher Energy might listen. We all stumble and stutter but please stick with the attempts towards positive outcomes that are good for you.

Find diverse inspiration here via the fruit of the month, facial ideas, motivational quotes, interviews of courageous individuals and more. YOU have a voice and perspective that is priceless. I know this because both landed you at FYF today. Let me be 1 of the first to say thank you, to you, for speaking to the next person in your real life positively. H.E. hears and sees us all the time :) And this right here, is our time. Congrats to YOU on pressing that button to your happiness. Some might say it's not just the end of a year but the beginning of the rest of our lives. Call it a "Do Over". Heck, call it a "Do Better". But do the darn thing, call it YOUR life and smile about it. A life that you can amend everyday if you take note of the goodness. Now I am far from being a preacher but guess what I noticed? You can not have the word "GOoDness" without the word "GOD". I'm looking forward to reconnecting with you next year so stay safe, sober, of sound mind and thankful this season.

Enjoy this precious month of December and all it's unpredictable gifts! Have a Merry Christmas, Blessed Hunakka and Happy New Year. Have fun, have faith and FIX YA FACE! Exercise of the month Find a reason to smile in your mind. Keep it on repeat when personal tests occur.

Enjoying The Gift of Abundant Choices...Friday December 1, 2007
The power of good energy and good people is immeasurable but very recognizable. Fight to find it when the thought escapes you:) It's like new everytime. Work on yourself in areas that have caused you stress but stay glad that you found the need for a new. Once again, speak about topics that strengthen your faith in your family, friends and you future. Live in the present. Present yourself as someone living with focus and thrive times a million.
This December choose a interesting gift for a new friend, choose a new approach to connect with a lost old friend, find a good recipe idea to cook in your new kitchen or buy a pair of new socks and "step it up".
The new Fruit of The Month
has a innocence about it since it's fairly new (introduced widely within the past 10 years to us) Don't be afraid to touch it because when it burst you'll be glad. (excuse me? lol) Let's not be naive about it's powerful juices. It's pro at being good for the body. But you won't turn as red as they are. Indeed we have mutual respect for and can only be talking about the Pomegrante.
Pomegrante contains Vitiman C and higher antioxidants (helps to minimize bad cholesterol and blood clotting) than alot of other fruits--even green tea. Pomegrante aids in artery health. These very red, very powerful treat has even been used for decorating purposes.
Today frowning is never promoted
, doubting yourself (or others) will not do either. Focus. Have movement that will make you smile genuinely. FIX YA FACE. Feel Good. Look Great. And do well out there:)
************************************************************ ***********************Pomengrante Ideas
Pomengrante straight:
You can find a good book and indulge in a cold glass of pomegrante juice. If it is too tart, I add water. The health benefits are wonderful.

As per 12 Ginger Pomengrante Muffins
In a bowl, mix flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in crystallized ginger, lemon peel, and pomegranate seeds. Make a well in the center. In a measuring cup, blend milk, egg, and 1/4 cup butter. Pour liquid all at once into well. Stir just until batter is moistened; it will be lumpy.Spoon batter into 12 (21/2-inch-wide) or 24 (13/4-inch-wide) buttered muffin cups, filling each almost to the rim. Sprinkle with 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar.Bake in a 425-degree F oven until lightly browned-16 minutes for large muffins-13 minutes for small. Remove muffins from pan. Serve hot or set on a rack and serve warm or cool.

Original Formula-Transparent Facial Bar by Neutrogena a appreciated. Made with glycerin and made to do the job. I look forward to the clean feeling I get knowing that I've used a decent pore protector within my regimen. Of course I try others but it's nice to comeback and get reacquainted with trusted items. Gives my skin a renewed tingle. Stay tuned because I will be revisiting the wonders of Neutrogena again in the future.. If you try it, feel free to write us at FYF about it.

1. What keeps you feeling beautiful?

Not taking myself too seriously keeps me feeling beautiful, as well as surrounding myself
around positive people & things, and of course laughing...a bubble bath doesn't hurt either!

If there's a song that reflects your vibe,
what would that song be?
The Police - Englishman In New York I love that song! It's sexy, jazzy, rocky/edgy, with a touch of ska/reggae and funk which incorporates a lot of my musical tastes and ultimately
my vibe, but more importantly i love the words its about feeling like an outsider which I feel like a lot; how having morals will make u a hero; and to always be yourself...those beliefs are the vibe I'm on as well.

2. With the success of
your modeling (for Jose Cuervo Heart & Soul Magazine and American Vintage Clothing Line To name a few), do you have any ideas for new ventures as well?
Most definitely! Modeling just sort o
f happened, my vision has always been to become a mogul and break the stereotype of the brainless model chick. My current ventures are to expand my artist management (I manage DJ Dummy) into the start of my Entertainment Company, while continuing to act (I'll be in American Gangster this November) and host (I co-host the monthly Underground Hip-Hop Showcase Streets Have a Voice). Later the plan is to embark on my national hospitality chain idea...but the details of that are top secret, lol

3. When did you know that Radio Hosting was in your future? What are you most proud of that you've done?
As a radio jockey when I was at Syracuse Universi
ty, I loved it. So I knew that it was something I wanted to get into when I moved to NYC. Up to date as far as hosting, I think I'm proudest of my either my interview with the legendary Marley Marl or Kid Capri that I did with AOS Radio, both where a lot of fun.

4. What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try?

really into photography, just started up sewing and designing, traveling, and home improvement (my Nickname is Home Depot). I think it's fun when you follow all your interests big or small...but the top things i do for fun are listen to music and dance. Something new that i want to try is skydiving.

5. What are a few of the daily activities in the Life of Jai Milan?

Every morning i put music on and dance around in my underwear, then i get down to business (email, calls, etc), I always try to incorporate some sort of exercise in my day, I make myself learn at least one new thing a day, and
I have to have at least one sweet a day, cookies are my downfall!

6. What keeps you grounded in an ever changing world?
My spirituality...not taking mysel
f too seriously...knowing that tomorrow isn't promised...and not comparing myself to others.
7. What are 2 qualities that you prefer in a mate at this point in your life?
Working in this industry you find so many men that think "ballin" is an actual quality, it's quite disconcerting...two qualities that I prefer are passion on a topic that they're educated in and being cultured.
8. Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice and what was it?
My mom has always told me to never settle for anything you don't want and to never depend on a man because he can always leave you...i know that's two, but those have been 2 really good pieces of advise that has helped me
to be determined and independent.

9. What piece of business advice would you like to share?

If your work is what you truly love, it will never feel like work.

10. Champagne, Wine or Sparkling Apple Cider? Vanilla, Chocolate or Strawberry?

I always have to be difficult lol... Premium vodka. White Chocolate

11. What word would best describe you right now? Productive

Staying confident and grounded in myself, not being ashamed of any past experiences……. GOLDEN (JILL SCOTT)

Well, I am an everyday mother- my son keeps me rather busy and in a nutshell I hustle….from scheduling, writing sessions, to ensuring rehearsals for tapings .

3. What are you most proud of that you've done?
Going against the grain of what people expect me to be. Like being a single parent and quitting a 9 to 5 position(second best thing I've ever done-having my son is first) to pursue my dreams.

I am a really down-to-earth person, I just enjoy hanging out with my friends and cooking. I'M GOING TO FINALLY TRY A CRUISE
