It’s a cozy dinner at grandma’s...she’s in the kitchen grinding her spices “the Mexican way,”...in a Molcajete, with a mortar and pestle, while she flips up perfectly brown freckled flour tortillas from the griddle and chops up the fresh roasted tomatoes for the salsa.
There are three key elements to beautiful skin. One is radiance. Good health should shine through it like a window. Two, it must be blemish-free and dewy--not oily, just moist enough to glow.

Julissa says, “Recently, I’d forgotten to schedule my annual mammogram in January, but wasn’t worried. I’m only 45 and the only cancer in my family was my dad, who had prostate cancer three years ago. In fact, I was serving on the Couture for the Cause committee in his honor! After my mammogram, they called back for more testing. After 5 hours in radiology, I heard the terrifying words: “It looks like breast cancer.” A biopsy confirmed I had Invasive Lobular Sarcoma, stage 2.”
If you’ve bought or sold a house in Fort Bend County lately, you know the market is hot, hot, hot! And in a hot market, the option period-the agreed upon period of time during which the buyer can cancel the contract for any reason without penalty-is of extreme importance.
