“Aging is a fact of life.  Looking your age is not!”

There are many things I can live without in my life but lipstick is not one of them.  I have tried many different products, colors and textures of lipstick over the years, but I am really excited to talk about a new one I tried today!

You may have already heard about LipSense, and even if you have, let me tell you a little more.  I am constantly applying new lipstick to keep my lips moisturized as well as looking good, but with LipSense, you apply it once and it stays for a long time – all you need to do is apply a clear, matte or glitter gloss over the top.  All of that is great, but my absolute favorite thing about LipSense is that it doesn’t stay on your teeth and more importantly it doesn’t transfer to things you put to your lips (my kids are especially happy that when I kiss them in the morning they don’t have to worry about wiping off the lipstick 😉 )

I have a friend that suggested I try this great new product because I wouldn’t be disappointed.  I challenge you to do the same!  I am putting my friends contact info on my Instagram, so shoot her a message or call her today!  There are wide selection of colors, along with different glosses.  The color I am wearing in the pictures above is “Bella” and I love it because it is a neutral and natural looking color.  If you ‘re looking for something more bold, they have those colors as well…Stay tuned because I will be posting pic’s with me wearing “Fly Girl” which is a really bold and bright Red!


Make sure you Glow!

“If you want to give light to others, you have to glow yourself!”

What do you do in your life to make sure that you glow?  Are you a believer in the fact that how you treat your body manifests itself?

Today I am focusing on the power of positive energy and how that can truly affect every aspect of your life.  Last night I had a conversation with one of my boys about schoolwork (I don’t know if you’ve had one of those conversations before).  It took me back to the days when I sat down struggling trying to figure out math and how that would be relevant in my life and understand the logic behind each problem. As I sat there speaking with him I realized that the schoolwork he was focusing on was providing him great grades and the assignments and homework that he was neglecting to do, was causing him problems. I asked him why he was not paying attention to his math and he said that it was because he found reading and Language Arts easier so that is what he chose to focus on. Makes sense? I know I certainly sometimes choose the easy things before the hard things and then sometimes things fall by the wayside.

The result of this conversation was that we talked about him not saying “he wasn’t good at math” but rather that he was good at math. Now, the logic behind our conversation was that because he was telling himself that he was good at something he was in fact good at that thing, so the easiest way to change the fact that he was struggling with his math was to tell himself that he was good at it.

I truly believe that physics makes up a lot of what happens in our lives – we say we are a healthy person and we are in fact that person. This can be true about anything we want to have manifest in our lives…One thing to be careful of is that you will still require action, but definitely the power of your mind and the energy that it brings when you focus on something is a real power.

That is why I am posting today about “glowing”…as you can see from this post I am drinking a juice from a local natural juice bar, and this is just a start to how you can make yourself healthy. With the choices we have out there about what to eat and how to live our lives, if we make the small good choices (like this juice), which are actually rather good, then the bigger choices become easier.

I believe that as you come be more healthy and happy, that shows in your confidence and demeanor. If you take just a pause before you make a choice about anything in life (eating, exercising, dressing nicely, etc.) then very often you make a different choice than in if you rush into it or try to talk yourself out of or into it. I am certainly not the most healthy person out there, but I notice when I make good health choices it affects my energy level, my ability to problem solve and my motivation…who couldn’t use a little more of those things?

Stay Healthy my friends 🙂
