The Woman Behind Methode Brigitte Kettner

Driven by her passion for a homeopathic approach to skincare, Ms. Brigitte Kettner, a well-known German biologist and skincare specialist, developed Methode Brigitte Kettner in the 1980s. 

In 1973, the passionate skin and cosmetics expert opened her own institution in Luxembourg. Kettner’s motto: “Facts are what count in skin research, but in skincare it’s the visible results that matter.” And she’s 100% right. In no time she had over 2,000 regular customers.

In her efforts to address every skincare problem personally, individually and effectively, Brigitte Kettner developed her own skincare line,  and Methode Brigitte Kettner (MBK) was born. In 1987, customers in Germany gained access to Brigitte Kettner’s successful product lines. Just two years later, the entrepreneur won over clients in Asia with the high quality and effectiveness of her products and applications. In exchange, Brigitte Kettner studied the teachings of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and integrated them into her own treatment concepts. Three decades later, Methode Brigitte Kettner is admired by beauty experts and skin specialists worldwide.

Methode Brigitte Kettner offers a full line of innovative, naturally derived skincare products and supporting devices—facial cleansing brushes, micro-current eye rejuvenator, and a hand-held microdermabrasion device. 

Methode Brigitte Kettner: Clarifying Brush 

My mother always said. “Take care of your skin and start while you are young.” MBK has made a super gentle clarifying brush that is perfect for all levels of skin care.

The clarifying brush with its two brushes for normal and delicate skin has two rotation speeds as well as the capacity to rotate in opposite directions. This detail seems small but helps reduce pore size (and you know that is my nemesis ). Sonic brushes can increase pore size! Who knew!

With three 30 second timers, you know that you are using your brush to its maximum effect. Combined with the cleansing products developed by MBK you are on the right track for great skin. I love their Foamy Cleansing Cream. It is creamy, gentle and suds up nicely. Used in combination with the clarifying brush you will walk away with fresh, silky smooth, hydrated skin.

On sale 40% off you can’t give a better gift to yourself are any young woman (or man for that matter) on your list.

Methode Brigitte Kettner: Eye Rejuvenator

I have loved MBK, and I have used it “off brand” on several occasions. In this case, as I mentioned in the video, I am going after that crease above my eye. Note to self: Sleep on your back! Lately, I have also started testing it on those ever-present vertical lines above my lip. Infuriating since I don’t smoke or use a straw (or whistle for that matter!). It doesn’t take long to go over those areas. It’s a pleasant warmth, and the microcurrent promotes collagen growth! Every little bit helps!

Methode Brigitte Kettner: Home Microdermabrasion System

Have you ever dreamt about being able to exfoliate professionally at home? I have and am thrilled to say the time is now!

.

I believe that without removing the dead cells off your skin, no product you use will be as effective as it could be.

I have used the Methode Brigitte Kettner Microdermabrasion Tool for one month now. It is recommended to be used once a week and I have done so with great results. The congested area around my nose has visibly improved including pore size.
Watch my videos on Instagram and IGTV here.
It has two easily interchangeable diamond tips one for normal skin and the other for more delicate skin which I used on my neck. The suction strength can also be controlled at the touch of a button.

 

Now is the time to take advantage of a 35% discount on their products.
Code STYLE35

The Microdermabrasion unit is a gentle, yet effective, hand-held, portable exfoliating device that removes dead skin cells and impurities while helping to even out skin tone and texture. It stimulates collagen production while creating a more radiant, youthful complexion. The different Exfoliating Diamond Tips for face, acne scarring, or the body are easily interchangeable and easy to clean.
Terra Vita is a mild, gentle yet very effective peeling agent for face, body, and scalp. The basic action enables free radicals to be bonded and natural ion exchange to take place, which removes toxic substances and opens clogged pores. It absorbs excess sebum while exerting a detoxifying, lightening and regenerating effect.
The aqua pure cream has a pleasant, light texture and will support the moisture balance of the skin by creating and storing water-binding reserves.

 

Best suited for all skin types, especially dehydrated skin.

Fall in Glacier National Park: The Crown of the Continent

Fall in Glacier National Park: The Crown of the Continent

We are fortunate enough to live in Flathead County, Montana home of Glacier National Park. Or what we refer to as “the Crown of the Continent”. Sitting on top of “The Backbone of the World” the park encompasses 1million acres including two mountain ranges, over 130 lakes and wildlife around every corner. Here you can see at least 25 glaciers and hike over 745 miles of trails. Fall has arrived in Glacier and we couldn’t resist a drive down the beautiful and colorful “Going to the Sun Road” which runs 52-miles along the Continental Divide.

 

Experiencing the incredible vistas and massive landscape, you can truly feel and appreciate why Glacier National Park is known as an International Peace Park. Enjoy the view…

 

 

The Little Red Bus is Iconic in the park. 

The fleet of 33 buses is widely considered to be the oldest touring fleet of vehicles anywhere in the world! The buses take you to all of the main attractions in the Park. Since the views in Glacier are vertically oriented (with its very high mountain peaks) the roll-back tops are perfect to get the full majestic views of the Big Sky.

Lake McDonald

I’m a sucker for unique lighting. Here at McDonald Lodge you can curl up in front of their lifesize fireplace, sip on a hot chocolate and enjoy the view of majestic Lake McDonald.

With over 300 Grizzly Bears known to live in the park, this is about as close as you should get one!

When hiking in Glacier, don’t forget your bear spray and stay in your car if you see one on the road.

Flathead River

You’ll drive by 10 miles of Lake McDonald before you start the climb to Logan Pass.

It’s fall so we already have snow on the mountains!

Saint Mary’s Lake, East Glacier. Wild Goose Island Viewpoint

If you have the time, don’t miss Many Lakes. You leave the park on the East side and re-enter into Many Lakes.  The road is a little rough but worth it.  I’ve had the most grizzly bear sightings at Many Lakes when I’ve visited.

 

Hike to Grinnell Glacier the trails radiate in all directions!

Swiftcurrent Lake and Grinnell Point have always been my view from the Many Glacier Hotel. Built in 1914 by The Great Northern Railway this beautiful lodge was commissioned to open the park to visitors and establish the area as the “American Alps”

Incredibly what took a year to build in 1914 took but a few hours to demolish in the Sprague Fire of 2017.  The loss of the 104-year-old Sperry Chalet is a shock to all of us who loved it.  We are heartbroken.

A lesson in appreciating what you have when you have it.

Safe travels to all. 

Lady Boss: The Return of Power Dressing

Lady Boss: The Return of Power Dressing

In a sea of casual dressing be the one who came to WORK. Your look that is!

There’s a trend happening in fashion right now that is throwing it back to the good ol days of Power Dressing with a hint of Dynasty. It is put-together, polished, Ladylike and I love it! Dressing for the job you want (hello, CEO of your life) has never looked so good. Now is the perfect time to look through your closet for those “quirky” items you couldn’t part with and pair it with your favorite corporate separates.

Every outfit needs a good statement piece or in this case the more, the merrier! I paired this gorgeous silk printed blouse with my favorite things of the moment! Mom’s alligator bag, an 80’s inspired chain belt (I mean, WOW!) and my favorite leopard Kate Spade pumps.

LadyLike Rockin-n-Roll 

I bought these pants over a decade ago at Intermix in Dallas. Serena and I have always been huge proponents of anything animal print and fell in love with the color of these pants. How could I ever let go of such a statement piece? They have a great 90’s bootleg that works so well with my Forever21 boots that seem to go with everything! I have always loved the structure of a blazer paired with an unexpected rock tee.

LadyLike in White

This suit feels so 70’s disco to me! I love the dichotomy of the oversized pants with a cropped printed top.

Mixing Fall Trends: Can leopard, scarf print and neon live in harmony?

Mixing Fall Trends: Can leopard, scarf print and neon live in harmony?

I’m sure you’ve heard the news. Leopard, scarf print and neon are back for Fall in a HUGE way! Luckily for me, I have most of these trends hanging in the closet already, but can I wear them all at once?

Survey says: Yes You Can! As long as you have the right color, tone, and proportion you can mix the most unlikely trends to create a look that is all your own!

Combining colors, pattern and texture are one of my favorite things to do when I’m planning a “look.” It’s all about proportion, texture, and hue. Follow these three steps for a winning combo every time!

Shoes: Kate Spade

Purse: Vintage

I had no idea why I had been holding on to this purse for so long. By that, I mean 20 years or so. Neon or Lime? How long has it been since this color was in?

How to mix patterns and color like a pro!

Chose a standout print and a secondary print

Choose the main pattern and work around it! In my case, my Zara scarf print skirt paired Leopard pumps. I’ve always thought that leopard was neutral and can go with anything if you have the right attitude.

Be Matchy-Matchy

Pick up on a color that is predominant on your print and pair it with something off the wall. I chose my favorite Kate Spade Leopard pumps with red heels that go back to my scarf print skirt.

Keep Your colors in the same tone

This trend explosion is brought to you by BRIGHT COLORS. Work with colors that are complementary. In this case, Red & Green are complementary colors. The fact that they share the same vivid brightness is what makes it work together. Think about hue and tone when matching colors.

Scarf Print Skirt: Zara

Above all else, have a little fun, it’s only fashion after all!
