Beauty Rest - Travel and Staycation tips

Vacation! Don't you love to "run away" and be refreshed? Even God rested on the seventh day of creation and condones our season of rest (Gen. 2:3). Jesus also took time for refreshment, inviting His followers to join Him: “He said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest’” (Mark 6:31b). When you get to the end of today's tips, share with me your favorite ways to get some rest!

With the price of gas I know many of us are opting for "staycations" this year, but if you are venturing into the friendly skies, don’t forget to review the Transportation Security Administration guidelines for packing! Here are a few tips to help make your travel a bit easier.

I am happy to report that mineral makeup is "airport friendly." While moisturizers and even mascara count as liquids, and are limited, mineral powders don’t cause such problems. You might also want to consider replacing your regular toothpaste in your travel bag with tooth powder to avoid yet another liquid limitation.

The 3-step travel size Natural Skin Care System from May Flowers Naturals that is featured in our Summer Skin Care Give-Away this month is also a handy travel solution, packaged in 2 oz recycled plastic bottles that are well within airline guidelines for carry on luggage. (The summer give-away hasn’t had many entries yet, so be sure to register today for great odds of being our winner!)

On the subject of vacation, why not celebrate Christmas in July? For the month of July only, you can get started with Affordable Mineral Makeup™ for just $12 instead of the normal $30 enrollment fee! In the year I have been following AMM, this is the lowest consultant enrollment fee I have ever seen offered, and it’s only available through the end of this month. If you are making regular purchase from me already, this is a great way to save yourself at least 25% on each future purchase (with the possibility of earning up to 40% discounts as your business grows).

To get $18 off your sign up, go to http://affordablemineralmakeup.com/bizopp.html and select Option #5 Consultant. Click the pay now tag and at checkout put the word christmasinjuly in the coupon section and the computer system will automatically take off $18 of your sign up fee. Please list Jenni Saake as your sponsor on the sign up form.

How do you relax and refresh? What is your favorite kind of vacation? I would love to hear from you in the comments section! Do you crave full-fledged travel, staying quiet near home, or a mini-retreat like a nice soak in the tub or a few hours with your favorite drink and a good book? If you can't take a full vacation right now, try to find a quiet place to rest, even if only for a few hours this week. It will do you good, both body and soul!
