I’ve decided that this is a great year to start thinking about my skincare. In hindsight, I probably should have started thinking about it when I was 20, but 51 is as good a time to start as any! Recently, I started noticing that I was getting darker spots on my face, so I reached out to a fried of mine who sells R+F and she turned me on to one of their skincare line, REVERSE Brightening Regimen for the Appearance of Skin Dullness, Discoloration and Uneven Skin Tone. I started using it and noticed results immediately, but even more important, I fell in love with the way it makes my face FEEL!! So I decided to go ahead and join up as a consultant. R+F also offers other skincare regimens if you have different issues! If you want to check it out, click on the link!
I turned Fifty in October. I’ve decided to be Fabulous at Fifty. I began a challenging new workout by starting Orange Theory Fitness. I’m obsessed with this workout. I love being able to monitor my heart rate as I do the hardest workouts I’ve ever done in my life. Since I started at the end of October, I’ve gone 3 – 5 days a week. A lot of people I know have caught the OTF bug, so it’s been fun going with a group and pushing each other.
Unfortunately, though, I haven’t changed any of my bad eating habits, so I may be getting stronger, but I haven’t lost any weight. It’s hard to out-exercise a bad diet, especially at fifty. I seriously think I gained ten pounds the DAY I turned fifty. My metabolism seriously just STOPPED!! I’m just going to have to make some real changes soon.
I’ve been reading about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey and Lemon. So that’s going to be the next thing I add to my lifestyle. Each morning I’m going to drink a little of that on an empty stomach and see if that will help me curb my appetite and bring about some of the other health benefits I’ve been reading about. I’m thinking I’ll commit to it for a month and see how it goes.
1 teaspoon raw honey
1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
8 oz. warm water (1 glass)
I’m still not sure what diet I’m going to do. I really love how easy 21 Day Fix was, so that may be my next lifestyle change.
You may be asking yourself, “What color lipstick should I wear when I go flying in a private plane?” I never thought I’d be asking myself that question, but today I had that very question on my mind as I made plans to fly from Rockwall to Terrell in my brother-in-law’s plane. I decided that Colour Pop Trap was just understated enough not to draw any attention to myself as I climbed aboard this cute little plane!
The flight is about a ten minute flight, which was the perfect amount of time for a first timer like myself. Strangely, no planes were in the air today. When we were about to leave, a man came running out to let us know why. Obama is in town. We had to call in a flight plan to make sure we were safe to fly. Once we got clearance, we made our way to Terrell, but they gave us some wrong code and when we let them know we were about to land, we found out they were about to call in Secret Service because they didn’t know who we were!! Of course, they worked it out and we landed safely. I wonder if my lipstick choice was the actual reason they didn’t have send out the Secret Service!! 😉
If you are looking for a large palette of eye shadow for a reasonable price, I highly recommend BH Cosmetics. The price was so easy to my wallet, that I figured I would be getting something where each color was the size of a dime. Boy! Was I wrong! Each one of these shadows is about the size of a quarter!! It’s crazy how much you get for your money!!!
Another bonus to purchasing, was that they stay on pretty well! I always use primer before I apply, so I’m not sure if you would get the same results if you don’t use a primer. There are several different color palettes to choose from, so if you’re new to make up like I am, this is a great buy!
I ordered Essential Eyes on Monday and received them on Thursday, so it’s close to instant gratification!!
