Go With The Flow

By Cheryl Woodcock - Jun 27, 2018

I’ve spent over 20 years in the entertainment news business, dashing from story to story as a producer and on-air correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider.” Being “good” busy is in my blood – and keeps me motivated and inspired as a wife, mom and professional.  But family + career often means juggling a dozen plates – praying that they all stay in the air. Every parent knows exactly what I’m talking about!  It’s easy to get stressed out – and frantic. Luckily, a long time ago someone gave me a piece of advice that has helped me stay sane and smiling no matter what life brings. The words of wisdom? “Go with the flow.”  

I took the phrase to heart – and it’s how I found my way to paradise seven years ago. 

For two decades, my family has called Beverly Hills home. It’s all my kids knew. And that was what started to weigh on my husband David and me. Don’t get me wrong, we were blessed to live in the splendor of 90210, but we wanted our children to be global citizens – enlightened and cosmopolitan. Trips abroad were fine, but they were temporary. Then, we found the perfect answer in Punta Mita, a tropical paradise that offers the best of all worlds. After several holidays in the area, we decided to “go with the flow,” packed up our home in Beverly Hills moved to Punta Mita full-time. If you’ve been to this gorgeous village by the water you understand why we found it so appealing.  

 

 

What makes Punta Mita so magical starts with the breathtaking terrain and generous people. Then, of course, the food and climate. All these amazing qualities stand alone, but only scratch the surface to what makes Punta Mita one of the most invigorating and soul-enriching places on the planet.  

It’s been several years now since our move to Punta Mita, where it’s all about “going with the flow.” Today, my kids call me “the ultimate Surf Mom.” My husband and I are thrilled our children have had this tremendous cross-cultural experience and are bi-lingual.

If you haven’t visited Punta Mita – please come!  There’s so much to see and do and in this new blog, I’m going to introduce you to the best of the best.  So, to kick it off, herewith my top fave things to do in Punta Mita!

I want to share a Hollywood Secret with you…

Nude Envie Launches First Product Line, Envie De Lèvres.

Luxurious and sophisticated nude-colored makeup line tabs into the U.S. cosmetics market

Los Angeles, CA (March 7, 2017) Nude Envie announces the launch of its rst product line, Envie De Lèvres, into the U.S. market: Seven profound shades of nude-colored lipsticks and one perfect nude lip pencil.

Nude Envie founder, Isabel Madison believes that “feeling beautiful is being beautiful, and that con dence, sophistication and subtleness make a woman feel beautiful.”

The company’s re ned makeup products are geared towardssophisticated and stylish women, who embrace their natural allure. Envie De Lèvres’ subtle shades of nude allow every woman, no matter her ethnicity or complexion, to showcase her skin tone and highlight her features without overpowering them. Carefully crafted, using the nest ingredients, all Envie De Lèvres lipsticks are paraben and gluten free as well as extra moisturizing and luxurious due to added Vitamin E and jojoba oils.

Isabel grew up immersed in beauty culture. Her father, a biochemist, formulated cosmetic products for Max Factor, Halston and Chanel and his own cosmetic line, Visage Beauté. Their home resembled a cosmetics department store, makeup was everywhere. Not being allowed to use any cosmetics as a little girl, Isabel sat in awe watching her mother transform into a glamorous woman applying subtle touches of makeup and color. She would mimic her mom and play with the products using her younger sister and grandmother as models. It was at the age of 13 that Isabel actively became involved with her father’s cosmetics business, creating new shades of powder and creamy frosted eye shadows and helping melt and mold lipsticks. She learned about cosmetics and the beauty business from the inside out.

As her life evolved, becoming a mom, and raising 3 magni cent children, her passion for cosmetics never faded. It wasn’t until recently that Isabel found her place in the vast cosmetics landscape once again. While shopping with her sister, she was overwhelmed by the wide variety of vibrant colors of lipstick in the store’s cosmetics department. Why is it so hard to nd the perfect nude lipstick? It shouldn’t be! And with this revelation, Nude Envie was born.

The Envie De Lèvres line is available at Barneys Beverly Hills and online at Barneys.com and nudeenvie.com. For all press inquiries or more information, please contact info@nudeenvie.com.
