Just thinking. Hello WIS-DOMS I was just sitting here and this random thought came to mind. We are Unmistakably Flawed I purchased this T Shirt almost two years ago. (picture is from last year). I began to read the words and thinking back and remembering that I had a flaw growing up and it was being so tall and skinny OH MY GOODNESS! Anyway, fast forward to mid adulthood, I remember hating my long legs 5’10 (which may be tall for a shorter person and short for a taller). One day I remember clear as day, I said “I wish I was shorter”, then God said “I can take your legs” and ever since then I’ve embraced my, what I know now, that I am unmistakably flawed.
Valerie Tate of Unmistakably Flawed, thank you so much!!!!. You have no idea how many people lives you touch.
I just want to say to you that reads this, is that, you are unmistakably flawed❤️ Be Blessed
I’ve never been a sporty kind of person. I windsurfed a little, skied a little, did some gymnastics when I was a kid and that’s about it. Maybe did some aerobic classes 25 years ago now!
Since then Nada, zilch.
Until last week when I discovered Pilates, and I’m in heaven! My heart keeps its rhythm, I’m not red and blotchy, and no heavy sweating. The perfect sport for me basically!
I started because I realized that being almost 50 is a big thing, and I needed to be healthy and in shape to see my grandkids grow up. So Pilates it is for this middle aged lady!

Glowing inside and out 😊
I try to nourish my skin from the inside by eating lots of healthy food and I also exercise a lot.
But I’m naturally very pale and have lots of sun damage marks on my face.
I’ve hardly ever gone bare faced, even when I was younger.
However, then I discovered @ecotan Face Tan Water
I’d have to honestly say that it is my favourite skincare product ever!
It really does make my skin look so much nicer, evens out marks and gives me a subtle tan glow without any makeup.
I love that I can tan my face without the sun or chemicals.
* @ecotan Face Tan Water contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, orange peel and rose geranium
Of course the other thing I love about this product is that it is all natural, certified organic, vegan and cruelty free.
These photos show my skin bare faced without foundation and no touch ups (but quite nice light 😉)

I legit think the weirdest things:
*like when you go to checkout and the cashier ask if you have found everything. Most people just say yes and continue, I freeze and try to figure out what they are hiding that I may not have found.
*I have to really focus when out somewhere and someone bends down to tie their shoe in the middle of the isle, because I just want to do a round of leap frog while they are there and at least we can have fun
*I wonder who decided what dinosaurs sounded like and if it was a great debate to get the pitch and tone correct
*I used to love playing duck, duck, goose. It was the only game I could get my frustrations out and then run around laughing and everyone approved.
Being a Grammy is just about the best part of getting older! I love my littles so much and truly start missing them before I even leave! I know I'm totally biased, but aren't they sweet?

It doesn’t happen all at once. You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out, and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real, you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand. -margery willams
I have taken my probiotic at bedtime every night when I found out it was a huge missing puzzle piece for my health.
Did you know that it takes your gut an average of 6️⃣ months to recover from one round of antibiotics?...If you’re one of those people who is thinking “who cares”, rolling your eyes, or keeps scrolling, I would strongly encourage you to read this through!👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Your gut is considered to be your “second brain” and plays a MAJOR role in hundreds of functions in the body...
🦠It comprises 70% of your immunity- this is crucial to fight off offenders during cold and flu season
🦠It has its own nervous system and contains over 100 billion brain cells- this means it can initiate digestive functions without relying on messages from the brain, thus acting as a “second brain”, even the heart can’t beat that
🦠70% of serotonin is secreted in the gut- your feel good hormone that counters anxiety and daily stresses
🦠Scientists are starting to see strong connections between leaky gut syndrome and leading medical disorders in the US, like autism, osteoporosis, anxiety, and depression #guthealth#gutlam#healthinfdeomntheinsideout#aginggracefully #agingbackwards#serotonin#gutflam autisn
“We live in a world that doesn’t like the grey areas yet that’s where you find the complexity the humanity the truth”
Why are we so afraid of change? Are we afraid of judgement because we ourselves are judgemental? I remember reading that the people that have the most hair styles are less judgemental , the ones that never change hair styles are the most judgemental.The ones afraid of change are afraid of the grey zones the unknown. I thought that was an interesting comparison . I love living in a world where people are expressing themselves in so many different ways now we are not all cloned the same Why are we so concerned about what others think, or of the unknown. I know I am only talking about hair but it could be anything. As we age our hair changes our skin changes and many of our needs change, and we adjust . I believe if we accept the process of aging and age with confidence it’s not as scary , after all we should want to do it right? Aging is a privilege denied to many ,let’s rock these years with joy and gratitude.The grey zone is full of excitement adventure and definitely truth .In accepting my grey hair ,I am working on accepting all the ups and downs that come my way with gratitude. I have had many hair styles and colours on my journey and I have loved most .20 + years of processing my hair in search of myself. 11+ years ago I ditched the dye and let my true roots shine.I have never looked back. The grey zone is always scary but in aging we must go through it to accept and appreciate where we have been , where we are , and where we are going . If you are happy with your hair colour whether you colour it or not embrace the process of aging with an open mind and an open heart, don’t be afraid be informed and present , be-unique be you and shine . I hope you all had a restful happy weekend , from the light in me to the light I see in all of you, have a great week!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 #greyhair#greyhairdontcare#greyhairtransition#greyhaircolor#greyhairmovement#silversisters2020#silversisters#silversistersinternational#overfifty#greyhairmodel#over50_style#aginggracefully
Avoid falls.....Safe pick up! Regularly practiced in all Surefeet classes: Ensure you have a stable hand support (chair, counter...) surround your item with wide apart feet, position yourself with your extended arm directly above your item so that you do not need to drop your eyes/head which could possibly cause blood pressure changes....dizziness, with hand on support, squat and reach down to pick up your item. Slide item against foot for easier grasp.
Hello Instafam, .
It's Monday again..
Fresh Winters ,
And along with cold and dry air comes itchy,dry and irritating skin.
So here are some tips to take care of your skin during winters
👉1)The water in your skin evaporates more quickly so drink plenty of water.
👉2)Exfoliate face with homemade masks like honey,yoghurt or almond oil face masks
👉3)Avoid long and steamy showers as hot water cause damage to keratin cells which are located on outer/upper layer of our skin which can further cause eczema
👉4)Avoid soaps that are harsh on your skin and makes your skin dry.
👉5)Invest in good Moisturizers & serums .
I started my day with @themomsco Natural Vita Rich Face Serum.
Enriched with the goodness of Vitamin C ,B3, B5,E and Hyaluronic Acid it penetrates deep into your skin and helps to minimize fine lines, Hydrate, Brighten & Helps to reduce Pigmentation. .
Not only this, it also helps in reducing blemishes and dark spots.
There is No Paraben, No Sulphate ,No Mineral oils added in it so it is completely safe to use even for the most sensitive skin type
👉HOW TO USE:
Wash your face clean and then apply 1-2 drops of serum in circular motions .
👉WHEN TO USE:
You can use it day/night along with the moisturizer because applying serum alone won't help much. You need to apply first serum and then a good moisturizing cream
👉MY EXPERIENCE .
It is light weight and gets absorbed into your skin easily..
Nothing really works like magic so you need to use it regularly to get maximum benefits of this serum

Thought of this as I’m going to bed with my vitamins, heating pad and wrinkle cream....🙏🏻 Lets have a week eh?!
🎂 Why another birthday makes you MORE badass
(maybe enough to wear your birthday suit with pride!) .
👩🏽🦳Getting older has definitely given me I have ONLY been able to truly access the older I’ve gotten, and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.
I didn’t know where I would be at 37, but when I look at my life:
-handsome considerate husband
-my sweet well behaved puppy
-loving friends and family
-reached my healthiest state EVER, and it’s only gotten better with age (and it shows!)
-physically I am the most strong, balanced, and mobile I’ve ever been
-clients who I am honored to support and appreciate me
-financial abundance that is a far cry from where I was 5 years ago -a team of women that is dedicated to helping other women
-a sweet new car
-living in my modern nest in the heart of Denver
When I look at all these things (which I feel are pretty badass)…..I know that age has contributed to my amazing life because of these 3 things. .
Moments of learning, life lessons, and repeating mistakes have absolutely created who I am today
Having experience is one thing, but it is nothing if you never learn from them. What lessons you harvest from your experiences create your unique wisdom
With that wisdom, I have learned to trust myself more deeply, love myself more thoroughly through my mistakes, and show up imperfect, but powerfully.
I hope as another year passes, comes to a close, or maybe your birthday is nearby, that you embrace another year whole heartedly. .
🗣Thanks to all of the birthday wishes, and comment below and share the BEST birthday you’ve had yet and WHY?! .

Using a circular motion, apply pressure here for five seconds. Following this pressure technique for each of the pressure points, keeping thepressure firm but not painful. These pressure points have the ability to reduce pain and promote relaxation. 🖐
My super glamorous life 😘
Can't decide if I look a red panda or Red Skull with these @avajarusa lifting masks 🐼💀
Gravity is not forgiving, so this is definitely a interesting concept I've wanted to try.🇰🇷

I didn't know too much about @Janmariniskinresearch until this last year, but I knew Meghan Markle is a fan of this skincare line. So even though I kind of hate her for obliterating my lifelong Prince Harry fantasies, I have to admit, the woman's skin is flawless! I've tried a few products, and it didn't take long for this line to become a personal favorite!
Recently, I added the @JanMariniSkinReseach 'REGENERATION BOOSTER' ($215) to my daily morning and evening routine. Its formula combines advanced growth factors, peptides and antioxidants made to hydrate skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the appearance of texture and overall skin tone. I'm still in preliminary use, but I can say it's very gentle on my skin and leaves it feeling nourished and moisturized, but still lightweight. Making it great to use under makeup! I'll have a full review of the 'REGENERATION BOOSTER' on Influenster once I've completed the bottle!
Other @janmariniskinresearch products I've also used with great results are the C-ESTA® SERUM ($110), MARINI PHYSICAL PROTECTANT SPF 45 ($53),and BIOGLYCOLIC® RESURFACING BODY SCRUB ($55)
Full disclosure. This product was gifted for review. However, whether a product is gifted or personally purchased myself, I always give my honest thoughts. #RegenerationBooster#skincare#JanMariniSkinResearch

I love Retin-A in skincare, but I have never found an over the counter product including it that remotely compared to prescription strength ones I've used at the spa I worked at. I had the opportunity to try an advanced preview of @Peterthomasrothofficial Pro Strength Retinoid Peptide Serum from their "PRO Strength" collection. I made sure to manage my expectations, but turns out I didn't need to. This is hands down the best non-prescription retinoid product I have ever used It took me a week to get through the "Retinoid Uglies", but now that my skin has adjusted, I am really impressed by the results so far. Yes, this was gifted to me for reviewal, but @peterthomasrothofficial has always encouraged me to share my genuine thoughts on their products, good or bad! If you want to read more on my experience with this serum, I'll have a complete write up for it on Influenster next week!
If you're interested in the Pro Strength Retinoid Peptide Serum, it is exclusively available at @Sephora for $110! #PeterThomasRoth#PTRCult#nostrengthlikeprostrength

Low key Saturday plans for me that includes some snacking, Nintendo, and this @curapure super-charged face mask!
I don't think I can stress enough the importance of skincare. This Korean made mask is packed with vitamins, omega acids, and extracts that will hydrate, sooth, and help with antiaging. It applies coolly (you can stick yours in the fridge to make it even colder), smells great, and I can even multitask with some Super Mario while it works it's magic. Half an hour later, I take it off, and my skin feels bouncy and relaxed!
This is one of my favorite sheet masks I've ever used, so if you're interested in giving it a try, check out @curapure

I tried two of @naturallyseriousskin products and here are my thoughts! First is the "Mask-Imum Rivaval Hydra-Plumping Mask", which was luxuriously rich and soothing to my skin without being greasy at all. I have larger pores, particularly around my nose, so the moisturizing and plumping formula of hyluronic acid (a personal favorite to any moisturizer for me), colloidal oatmeal, and sodium PCA, helps to smooth, calm, and reduce their appearance. Kaolin clay in it dissolves oil and impurities which is great to clear my skin without using harsh products that contain alcohol. Alcohol dries out skin, so while it may leave skin feeling nice and clean temporarily, it actually causes your sebum glands to start overproducing oil to compensate for the result of the dryness. I recommend most avoid it. Clay is a gentler, more effective way of treating oily skin. Other ingredients in the mask help to reduce signs of aging caused by environmental aggressors like UV rays, pollution, free radical damage and brightens skin, which are other concerns I have for myself. I like it here in San Diego, but between the sun and city environment, I want to make sure I protect and treat my skin properly. I also tried out the "Supercharge Anti-Oxidant Moisture Serum" which helps to treat many of the same concerns as the "Hydra-Plumping Mask", but in a daily, morning and evening moisturizer form! I like that this serum has a pump dispenser that makes it easy and mess free for use! This one is a little different than what typically comes to mind when I think serum, as it has more of a lotion appearance and texture, but let me tell you, it doesn't make it any less effective. It delivers the moisture, and it applies very clean and sheer, which makes it great to put on prior to makeup application, or to avoid some of the heavier residue other serums can leave. This is one I'll likely purchase for my mom who has dry skin concerns and also has alcohol allergies! I've loved both products, which you can purchase them at www.sephora.com/brandnaturally-serious?icid2=product_link_brand
It's met all claims and expectations, has a beautifully simple aesthetic, and smells natural and lovely!
