We look good, we feel good!
We ladies feel more attractive after leaving our beauty salon with freshly colored hair. Change it up! Don’t be afraid to try something new at your hair salon. Give yourself a luxurious treat, and you will feel like a new person.
Sporting a new hair style can raise our confidence levels. Just a few days ago, I made an appointment with my hairstylist, Meghan, to let her work her magic on my hair. Honestly, I was getting tired of my dark color. It was time to change. I was looking a bit blah with my old color.
I get it. Not everyone, including myself, looks like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner in the morning, especially for those like me who are over forty. But hey, let’s not get discouraged. Let’s prove to everyone that age is just a number. Isn’t 50 the new 40, and 40 the new 30?!
Implementing a few changes in my daily routine, such as eating a well-balanced diet, hydrating, exercising, and keeping the stress level low, can make a huge difference in how I look and feel.
As we are getting ready to approach the hottest part of the summer, with lots of humidity, our skin is not depending on extra moisturizer like it normally does during the cold winter months.
I normally apply a lightweight moisturizer with sunscreen, that way I am fully protecting my skin against harmful UV rays. Also, to prevent that dull look on your skin, be sure to change products frequently. I have been using Suzanne Somers’ product for two years. It is time for me to make a change. I will go into more detail about that soon.
These gorgeous ladies are getting ready to hit the big 50. Some of them already have. I’m inspired by these amazing beauties, by how gracefully they are aging.
As for Claudio, he keeps getting bigger and more lovable each day! On the 11th of August, he is going to have his last two baby teeth surgically removed, because they are a potential threat to his health if we leave them in. If you have a fur baby at home, you know how I feel. I’m not looking forward to Claudio’s surgery at all, but in our lives we always need to be strong.
I’m going to leave with one of my favorite quotes, from the Queen, the one and only, Oprah Winfrey:
“My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.”
