Torrey Devitto Hosts The Hope and Grace Luncheon

Did you know:
  • 1 in 5 Americans are affected by mental illness in a given year.
  • Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide.
  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • Approximately 50% of students age 14 and older with a mental illness drop out of high school.
  • Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death of our youth.
The beauty brand Philosophy has joined together with NAMI (Naitonal Alliance on Mental Illness) for the Hope and Grace Initiative.
NAMI is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization. They educate families and those living with mental illness. They embrace early identification and intervention for youth and young adults across the country.
The fabulous brand Philosophy has their Hope & Grace Initiative where 1% of all USA net product sales supports community-based mental health efforts.

I attended a luncheon at the Esterel Restaurant in the Sofitel hotel in Beverly Hills. It was a beautiful location with delicious food. There was a room full of wonderful women learning more about this organization and mental health.

Torrey Devitto of Chicago Med was the keynote speaker at the Hope and Grace luncheon and bravely spoke about her experiences with anxiety. Both she and her mother suffer from anxiety.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and this luncheon was about embracing those with mental illness. To make this disease #STIGMAFREE. 
If there was not so much negativity about mental illness, maybe so many people would not be embarrassed to come forward and get the help they need. Please be kind to those in need and encourage them to get the help they deserve.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my post! I hope you enjoyed learning about NAMI.

Smooth Feet in Less Than a Minute - The Emjoi Micro-Pedi

I was lucky enough to receive an Emjoi Micro-Pedi to try out at home. The Emjoi Micro Pedi is the only motorized callous remover to have the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance. If you enjoy salon-like services in an at home spa scenario the Emjoi Micro Pedi is the perfect tool for you! This tool demonstrates the value of an at home pedicure. It makes pedicures affordable, time saving and convenient. This is ideal for an active and budget conscious person who wants to do it yourself.
This product is good for both men and women. The Micro-Pedi system removes dry, rough, hardened, callused skin from the soles of feet in less than a minute. Your skin will feel smooth, soft and supple. It does all this without pain or the risk of nicks and cuts from metal scraper blades. It eliminates the hygiene concerns of having a pedicure at a spa. The functional end of the Emjoi Micro-Pedi consists of a unique Micro-Mineral roller that spins at an amazing 30 times per second. It requires 2 AA batteries.

My review is that I love it!! The Micro-Pedi is so easy to use. It takes very little time and the results were amazing. My feet have never been so smooth! This is great for the summer. Your feet will look spectacular in your sandals. Guys can use it too! I can't recommend this product enough!

Spring Trend: The Pineapple T-Shirt

SheIn Pineapple t-shirt on Marisa Stewart the high heeled brunette with Stella McCartney glitter tennis shoes.

I was recently introduced to a fabulous fashion line called SheIn. They have everything from dresses to accessories everything a fashionable girl could ever want. While perusing through the website I came across what is sure to be one of the most iconic images of this spring and summer season.  The always fun Pineapple T-shirt
The pineapple is as much a symbol of laid back good times as the pink flamingo.  So whether you like your pineapples freshly chopped, from the can, or rummed up in a frothy umbrella drink made by a Bermuda short wearing mixologist the season of the Pineapple is upon us.  
SheIn got it right with (as I suspect they usually do) this homage to our favorite tropical fruit. 

The shirt goes perfect with your favorite jeans or a pair of shorts.  I have paired it with
rich blue denim jeans and a simple white denim jacket. The heather gray color of the T-shirt goes with anything, but let's remember the focal point is the pineapple, so I wanted to just keep it simple and fun.  Of course some glitter sneakers are always a great way to add an extra dash of style to any casual outfit. 

Remember in Hawaii the pineapple is a symbol of welcome and hospitality, so if you are the host of your summer soiree be sure to wear your pineapple.

The High Heeled Brunette Marisa Stewart styles SheIn pineapple shirt. Perfect spring summer outfit.
