BecomingYou – Special Projects

Our donations to the Crete Pantry will be on-going.  When you come in for your hair appt. with Tammie, it would be great if you could help us keep the food going to Pantry, even after the holidays.  Again, thank you all for your generosity.

** Another special project!  We will be collecting gently used winter coats in all sizes and for all genders.  These coats will be going to those in shelters or unable to buy a winter coat.  If you have something to donate, please bring it with you the next time you come in and we’ll make sure it gets to those who need it!  Thank You!


BecomingYou  – Info on Hair Color

BEST HAIR COLOR SHADES

Choosing the right hair color isn’t as easy as simply picking out a color you like. There are a lot of factors that you should consider before picking a color for your hair, like your skin tone, natural hair color, and eye color. The Official Guide to Finding the Best Hair Color for Your Skin Tone.

Experimenting with your hair color is one thing; finding the most suitable color for you is another subject entirely. As far as choosing the best hair color for you goes, skin tone plays a key role in determining what makes you look like the best version of yourself. Most people fall into either warm or cool tones, but with that said, sussing out the best hair color for your skin tone without a little bit of help isn’t exactly easy—so we asked the experts to help hunt down the best hair dye shade for anyone who’s wondered, Which hair color for my skin tone?

“One way to figure out your tone is, after washing your face to remove all impurities, to hold a yellow or red piece of paper, then a white, green, silver or blue piece of paper against your face, preferably in a well lit room with natural light,” says Miguel Angarita, senior colorist at mizu new york salon. If your skin looks more flattering with the yellow or red piece of paper beside it, then you’re likely in the warm family. If your skin looks best with the other shades, you’re likely more cool-toned.

BecomingYou – Something Tasty

pasta-picSeashells with basil, tomatoes, and garlic
(adapted from Sunset Magazine, June 2012)

1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped or minced
3/4 t. sea salt
1/2 t. red pepper flakes
1 pt. small cherry or teardrop tomatoes (I used sugar plums)
1 lb medium seashell pasta
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, shaved
1/2 c. thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Combine oil, garlic, pepper flakes and salt and simmer on very low heat for 5 minutes or so; being careful not to burn the garlic.  Slice half of the tomatoes and stir the tomatoes into the mixture and simmer another 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and place in a large bowl. Place the other half of the sliced tomatoes into the mixture and stir. Let stand for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.  (Raw tomatoes get juicy as they stand, which helps create the sauce.)

Meanwhile, cook pasta as package directs for al dente  in a large pot of salted water. When done, drain and toss pasta with tomato mixture, then with the cheese and all but 1 tbsp. basil. Sprinkle remaining basil on top and season with a little salt, to taste.

Voila! Super simple, healthy and delicious. I got so many compliments on this salad that I’ll definitely be making it again.

BecomingYou – A New Year Story

THE AUTHOR IS NOT KNOWN. IT WAS FOUND IN THE BILLFOLD OF COACH BEAR BRYANT, ALABAMA, AFTER HE DIED IN 1982.

THE MAGIC BANK ACCOUNT

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use. However, this prize has Rules:

The set of Rules:

  1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
  1. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
  1. You may only spend It.
  1. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.
  1. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time, it can say, “Game Over!” It can close the account, and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know, because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself – right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, THIS GAME IS REAL!

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*.

We just can’t seem to see it.

The PRIZE is “TIME”

  1. Each morning we awaken to Receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of Life.
  1. And when we go to sleep at Night, any remaining time is not credited to us.
  1. What we haven’t used up that Day is forever lost.
  1. Yesterday is forever Gone.
  1. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account any time.  WITHOUT WARNING…

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars.  Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

We would like to thank all of you who helped make our Toys for Tots donation a rousing success!  The Marine Corp. reservists were very thankful when we dropped off a full box of toys on Dec. 19th.  They wanted you to know how thankful they were to all of you who helped ‘fill the box.’

Our donations to the Crete Pantry will be on-going.  When you come in for your hair appt. with Tammie, it would be great if you could help us keep the food going to Pantry, even after the holidays.  Again, thank you all for your generosity.

Giving Thanks in Trials

Our Prince of Peace told us to expect troubles and to “take heart” from him and how he dealt with them (Matthew 9:22; Mark 6:50; John 16:33). The Apostles in their many persecutions and sufferings encouraged us to follow the Lord’s example: Paul taught, “Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for…   read more.
