This labor day weekend was so fun we went to the Poconos...it's a vacation spot in Pennsylvania. It is a calm place to hang out and we did so much fun stuff like zip lining.  

How old are you actually?

8/29/2014

This is a subject that every woman no matter the age or race want to know more about. What is the secret too keeping your skin glowing and looking youthful for as long as humanely possible. Is it really just your genes that effect how well you age? We are going to find out.

I wouldn't say I'm scared of aging badly but to be honest ...I'm scared of aging badly! None of us can fight the aging process but we can do things to slow it down a bit.

When I was a teen oh so long ago I used to watch the Oprah show on occasion. One episode was about women who were defying the aging process. One guest was in her sixties but she looked as if she was just entering her thirty's. I couldn't believe my eyes I thought "Is this real? How could a woman of that age look so young!?" 

She told Oprah that she had always eaten healthy and exercised from when she was in her early twenties, and also avoided fast foods, and kept her stress levels low. In my mind I was like "Great I'm going to be old and shriveled up by the time I turn 25". I thought this because I did all of those bad things that she mentioned that she avoided in order to stay healthy and looking younger than her biological age.

Ever since that Oprah episode aired I've been kinda obsessed with finding ways to keep myself looking young. I've Researched different cultures to find out their beauty secrets. Found natural plants that are known for their healing properties, and more. In that time I have gathered a lot of tips and tricks that I'm going to share a few with you right now.

Frowning & Excessive Facial Movements: This might sound like an obvious thing that you should not do to avoid early wrinkles but it actually isn't. I noticed that people who make excessive facial movements usually have more wrinkles than people who don't. For example people who move their forehead muscles up and down a lot tend to get those fine lines earlier than others that don't. The same goes for frowning...they get those deep lines around their lips. So word of advice...just pretend you just got a shot of botox and you can't move your face that much.

Vegan Lifesyle: This is one tip I wish I lived by all the time but I honestly don't...but I know it is the best way to live. The times of my life when I was on a entirely or almost entirely vegan lifestyle I felt my best and my skin was amazing. I know that fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds are the way to go for the best health in my opinion. I just have to one day get over the wonderful taste of meat, cheese, and eggs, and etc. So one day I'll be a full fledged vegan...and hopefully you will too or at least eat more fruits and veggies than meat and dairy.

Natural Skin Products: For the last 8 years of my life I've used nothing but natural moisturizers on my skin. Think about it..your skin is the largest organ in your body why would you want to clog it up with a bunch of creams and lotions that originated in a lab...no thanks! Every morning I take a shower with castile peppermint soap (which smells and feels amazing) and moisturize with unrefined raw coconut oil. Using natural skin products will aid in slowing down the aging process from the outside in...so no chemicals over here buddy!

Minerals & Antioxidants: There are tons of natural plants out there that can be ingested for optimum health like green tea and moringa. Research plants that are known to have loads of natural minerals and antioxidants that will help renew your skin and help slow down the aging process. My favorite is moringa...it has 96 different minerals and antioxidants that are amazing for your body and it comes in its natural leaf form but you can also purchase it as a powder or an oil(the oil can be used as a moisturizer). So you have to help your skin keep its youthful glow from the inside out...that's important people.

So what I shared with you were some of the ways I've had people assume I was younger than my actual age...simple weren't they?Hopefully the above tips helped you to get ideas on how to slow down the aging process even if it is just by a few years and have people questioning whether you are younger than your age and most of all help you keep your young radiant skin as long as possible. So I hope you try some of these so you can continue being a PYT...aka a pretty young thing lol.

I’ve been in a blue mood lately. I don’t mean I have been feeling blue; I’ve just been loving nail polish that is in the blue, aqua, and purple family. I stopped by Duane Reade yesterday afternoon to buy a phone charger for my husband and my eye caught this pretty pastel bluish purple nail polish by Prevail

I have never heard of the brand before, but I thought how bad could it be. I used it to paint my nails as soon as I got home. I love the quality, it was very creamy and dried quickly. I think if they were to put this nail polish in an O.P.I or Essie bottle I would not be able to tell that it was a cheaper brand. This color is called “Hipster Hydrangea” and it was $5.99.

Keep Your Relationship Going Strong: Part 7

8/06/2014

Keep your relationship going strong, Love advice, relationship advice, save your relationship, save your marriage, Continue having a good relationship
Welcome to part 7 of the series Keep Your Relationship Going Strong". In part 6 we discussed the importance of continuing to look good for our man so he can keep finding us physically attractive. We sure didn't meet him looking like a bum (well most of us didn't lol) so we should not want to turn into one over time because we have become too comfortable. We always want to make sure we are clean, smelling good, and well put together. That's simple and easy enough right?


This next tip is a hard one to put into practice even for me. Something very important in a relationship is making sure to set aside time in your day for quality time with your guy. I know it seems difficult when you are trying to juggle a full time job, school, children, cooking, cleaning, hobbies, or whatever else that takes up your precious time. It is a tough one but it has to be done...so stop crying...jk!

Believe it or not guys have a soft side too (well some of them) and sometimes they want to spend time with just you (without the cell phone, tablet, lab top, or television being on). I promise you'll survive without these gadgets while you enjoy your quality time with him. At the end of the day if you didn't have any material things at all you would at least have each other (just like the movie The Blue Lagoon).

So to avoid crickets from chirping during the silence try doing something together. Try something like cooking a new recipe you found online, playing a game you have always wanted to try together, going for a stroll in the park down the street together, going to the gym together and be each others personal trainer, or whatever you would like as long as your doing it together...that's the key here. 

When you have this time set aside it will help you feel closer to each other and hopefully cause you to fall deeper in love. You never know...you might even learn something new about each other that you didn't know before. But most of all it will help you keep your relationship going strong.

See you in Part 8 of "Keeping Your Relationship Going Strong"
