Good News! I Am Facing My Fears About Getting Wrinkles




I was afraid to admit I have wrinkles until today. There you have it one of my biggest fears was dealing with my new found crow lines. A few weeks ago, I noticed a few lines across my forehead and just recently a few more around my eyes. I honestly do not know what is next. I had major panic attacks, not to mention I was asking my husband thirty times a day if he could see my aging lines. He swore he saw nothing. Lol :) Great answer babe. 
Over a few days, I was doing a massive amount of research online. I just want to know does having wrinkles mean my life is over or do I need botox? I was beginning to hate life, and this phase that comes with age. Yep, I was going a little loopy. But, wait there is more I went to my local beauty store to buy cream for my new found woman issue, and this is what happened. 


Judge My Style

 The word style is over-rated, and I  have a love-hate relationship with my style. I can't tell enough people how many times I wanted to buy something and put it down because it looked age appropriate for a twenty-something woman, not a forty-something gal like me. Not to mention the blogger articles I have read shows all the things a forty plus woman shouldn't wear. OMG, it's enough to drive a woman insane. So, I will be starting a new series of Bits and Babbles where you can be the judge of my style. Oh yes, and it starts today!
