We live in a society where worth can be determined by age. As I’m writing this , I am 42 , moving toward 43. I have to admit, there are days when I get up , look at my growing kids, and it has to sink in that I’m in my 40’s. wow, it was like yesterday that I was pushing strollers and setting up play dates. As much as I would love just one of those days back, I’m embracing my age and where I’m at in my life. With society plastering all kinds of photoshopped pictures and social media pressing hard on the crazy anti aging products, it’s always easy to blame society on how this world relies so much on beauty, youth and worth. I have read about the 80 year old body builder , and the 100 year old marathon runner. They are inspiring and living. Living in my terms is what keeps us young and thriving. Yes, we may not be in our 20’s, but even so what do you really know about life in your twenties? Living each day to the fullest is what it’s all about. Rocking your age like no other. I love my 40’s,and where im at in life. Yes there are days that I wish I had my 20 year old body back, but as hard as I work out, I’m actually loving my body now . I can still do many things that I did in my 20’s, and I wake up every day thankful that it’s still working. You get what you put in. If you aren’t happy with something, FIX IT. CHANGE IT. You live one life. Get out and try new things. I always try to live outside my comfort zone. That’s just my personality. It has opened so many doors for me in so many ways. I blog and campaign for a living, and yes I love it, and im reminded every day that when I go for a campaign, im at times, competing with 20 something bloggers. Honestly, I’ve been chosen over them due to my wisdom and training in that aspect , and the fact that i have more experience with certain things. Believe me, age is what you make of it. You can look, feel, dress, eat, live any way you like, and it’s up to you how you choose to feel everyday you jump out of bed and choose to live your day. Get up and rock the skin your in!

Oxygen Facials are the next big trend in skincare, and when you hear the benefits, you’ll see why. Who doesn’t want super soft skin these days? We live in a very polluted world and our skin can turn dull and look dehydrated. That’s why I live for my oxygen facials monthly. I have seen amazing results by going in once a month and getting this type of facial. The way your skin feels afterwards is amazing. If you have never tried one, here is the time to find out how amazing they are. Here are some great benefits:

  • They moisturize and help with the Glow.- Oxygen facials offer deep penetrating benefits that work their way deep into the skin. They help restore the PH levels in your skin, and help with the radiance. They also help prepare against sun damage. We raise our risks of sun damage every day when heading outdoors. Its always best everyday to wear a high SPF.
  • It increases circulation for a natural blush look- When getting an oxygen facial, it removes the impurities from the skin that lie deep within. The impurities are removed with fresh oxygen and boy does it feel great. You will walk out and have a natural glow to your cheeks. 
  • Helps with Blemish-Free Skin- Oxygen facials detoxifies the skin against the toxins and the every day stress that we incur. Everyday when we do our activities, the stress pollution hits our skin like no other. The oxygen helps with acne marks, sun spots, and age spots which increase as we age. These are weaknesses in the skin that improve with certain amounts of oxygen.

The next time you plan your day at the spa, or decide that you want to get a facial, try to opt for the Oxygen Facial. Your Skin will be glad you did!

If you are a smoothie drinker, its best to add a few tablespoons to your smoothie. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is found in just about everything. Its found in our muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, and tendons. It what keeps our strength in our bones and skin. It also helps with replacing dead skin cells.

Detoxing daily is so important when keeping our immune systems in tip top shape. Everyday we are running into polluted areas in so many ways. It’s in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the products we use and being around other people in general. It’s important to instill daily rituals that help boost our immunity.

I have four daily habits that I do everyday , and the meaning of habit is, I have been doing these every day for the past year, that they have become a part of my life. I encourage you to find some rituals that help keep that immunity boosted.

– Drink warm lemon water every morning- I drink this every morning the minute I wake up. Warm lemon water flushes toxins, and rejuvenates the liver. It helps flush your digestive tract and gives your body so much hydration. Try to drink this in place of your coffee. 

-Drink H20 all day long- yes I said all day long. It keeps your body hydrated and continually flushes toxins out of your body. It helps to keep you energized as your day goes by. I keep water with me all day and I infuse it with fruit.

– Meditate for 10 minutes every morning. I can’t be tell you how Much this has helped with my focus and overall well being. I’m the first one up , so this is how I start My mornings.  I also read the devotion for the day out of my favorite devotional bible.

– Take a probiotic daily. Do you know that 70 % of our immunity lives in our gut? Take a probiotic and make sure you are eating gut healthy foods daily.

The smallest , healthiest changes can do a world of difference for your immune system.

The New H&M Studio line of 2017 has been released, and it couldn’t be more beautiful. I will be posting some of my favorites later this week on my Instagram. The line which in my opinion is classy with clean lines is an inspiration from the outdoors . The Men’s line is exceptional, and the women’s line is tasteful yet elegant. 

The line includes cute beanie hats, leather trousers, pleated dress slacks, and gorgeous dresses. I’ve posted below a few of my favorite pieces that I have ordered. Check out my Instagram later this week on some great fall looks. You can check out this exclusive line at HM.com
