So who the hell am I?

First and foremost, I’m an initiate in traditional Haitian Vodou, proudly a Mambo Asogwe in the lineage of I’m an aesthetician and a skin care formulator, as well as cartomancer for over 2 decades now, and a vintage clothing collector and amateur antique dealer.   I seek both truth and beauty, and now I want to share all that with you.

I’ve been living in the desert for about twenty years, and that really informs what I look for and need in skin care products.  I’ve studied herbalism and both the latest and the tried-and-true of modern cosmeceuticals, so I appreciate both traditional and modern skin care regimens – I like getting the best of both worlds, and I want you to get them as well.
