National Radio Day

Each year on August 20th, National Radio Day recognizes the great invention of the radio. Celebrate the news, information, music, and stories carried across the airwaves.

Several inventors had a part in the invention of the radio in the late 1800s. Amazingly, not just one person can be credited with its beginning. Instead, each component developed through invention and discovery. As these technologies converged, the radio came to life.

To celebrate National Radio Day, I want to give special recognition to my favorite radio personality and friend.   Red Hot Brian Scott is currently on Peoria’s Z92.3 and hosts Brian & the Morning Grind.  Red Hot Brian Scott has had a longtime career in radio he has made his way from Atlanta, Georgia to Birmingham, Alabama to Mobile, Alabama to Pensacola, Florida to Quad Cities Iowa, Waterloo Iowa & Galesburg, Illinois. 

When I met Brian he was part of a very popular morning show in Davenport, Iowa called Red Hot and Tony Tone.  At the time they did several remote radio gigs and it was a weekly Friday event at a Quad City Club that I first came across the wacky duo in person.   Over the years I have followed Brian’s career and am proud to consider him a friend.  Brian has provided millions with the much needed escape from life just by being his normal wacky self.

Brian has a real passion for music and combined with his natural hustle he is a rockstar at anything he does.   He is a great performer combined with a brilliant marketer.  When he isn’t entertaining everyone on the radio waves he is entertaining people in person by performing in his band Bad Hair which is an 80’s retro band.

If your interested in checking him out he can be heard on Z92.3 from 5:45am-10am each weekday morning at https://www.z923peoria.com/red-hot-brian-scott.

I TRIED MOTTO


Over the last few years I have become comfortable with an I Tried Motto.  I find that it is better to try than it is not to try.  You never know what you can do until you try.  If someone would have told me a few years ago that I would have an online business that provides people from all over the United States and United Kingdom with their favorite beauty products at discounted prices I would have told you were crazy.  Until I tried I had no clue that I could do that on my own.   Over and over I keep trying things that are not in my comfort zone but because I believe in my business I keep trying.  Sometimes things work out like I want and sometimes they don’t. When things don’t work out I don’t count that as a failure.   I just keep moving forward in a different direction and try something else.  I do my best to learn from my mistakes and keep learning as much as I can.  

The moral to this story is you never know what you can do until you try. If it doesn’t work out try another way.

Winter Dry Skin Got You Down?

Perhaps you’ve always been battling dry skin, or it’s been a seasonal problem.  Either way, no matter how much moisturizer you slather on, you should know that dry skin isn’t always the easiest skin care woe to defeat. 

When it comes to dehydrated skin, it really can be more about your complete routine and less about the amount of moisturizer you use.  

To get your dry skin care routine in order, attempt these seven (7) dry skin care tips to do at home.  

  • Don’t take hot showers or baths

 Hot water is not a friend to your dry skin as it breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin, which decreases moisture.  To help dry skin, take shorter showers using warm water. 

  • Moisturize! 

 The way you moisturize in the winter is different than how you moisturize in the summer months.  Every time, after showering or washing your face or hands, apply a heavier, oil-based moisturizer as it traps existing moisture in your skin.  

  • Skip the lotion and use an ointment or cream.  

Lotions can be more irritating and less effective than ointments and creams for dry skin.  When selecting a cream or ointment, look for one that contains an oil such as olive oil or jojoba oil, or one with Shea butter. 

  • Exfoliate. 

Use a light exfoliates scrub to get rid of the top layer of dead skin cells and expose newer healthier-looking skin.  Make sure to not over-exfoliate.  

  • Apply lip balm. 

Shop around for a healing lip balm that works best and also feels good on your lips. 

  • Plug in a humidifier.  

Putting moisture back into your home’s air helps prevent extreme dry skin 

  • When outside, wear gloves and layers.  

Our hands are the most exposed body part to the cold weather and, typically, the first to experience dry skin.  Wearing gloves anytime you’re outside will help decrease raw skin.  

When should you see a dermatologist?

Endeavor to see a dermatologist, If you find that following these tips aren’t helping to highlight your dry skin.
