Holiday glam and coping with stress at any age. If there’s a time for glitter, it’s Christmas. What might feel too much the rest of the year is, if anything, not enough when it comes to the festive period. Luckily our favourite beauty brands feel the same, and haven’t held back when it comes to […]

When life gets tough remember…

When life gets tough remember, #1. Pain is part of growing. Sometimes life closes doors because it’s time to move forward. And that’s a good thing because we often won’t move unless circumstances force us to. When times are tough, remind yourself that no pain comes without a purpose. Move on from what hurt you, […]

A waist trainer for older women?

Okay, so I’m on the older side of life but why should the young people have all the fun?  I just got my waist trainer from abroad and spent most of today with it on.  I must say, it does make me want to stand up straighter and it does not let me overeat.  This […]

An accident waiting to happen

When someone you love tells you to be careful, BE CAREFUL….I’m a rather stubborn person and I hate to give in to aging but after today, I think I’ll listen better.  It’s because they love us and sometimes they’re much smarter.  When they say don’t do this, I usually respond, “hey, I can take care […]
