 Living Agelessly: Losing My Face And Neck Fat in 72 Hours



One thing I do know is  I am aging, and my body is definitely making its own changes. Some things I was prepared for and some other stuff  I wasn't. For example, I really believed my face, and some of my other body parts would remain flat and small forever.

                                   How I Get That Cheek Glow + My New Youtube Channel
I will never understand why I make a duck face before I do my cheekbones. It is so annoying, but I want to make sure I place my powder onto the thickest part of my face.  But in other news, I will be starting my own grown woman Youtube channel, and I am happy to share it with you guys. Oh wait, let's talk about my face glow first.

 Last night was date night for me and the hubs. We decided to do something a bit more relaxing and laid back. There was no need to dress up or put on a full face of makeup.

I prefer a good foundation and glow powder over buying expensive face brushes. I also have mastered using two brushes for everything I do to my face. Yall I keep it simple, and with summer coming, I am about to go even more straightforward. You know the base for the look, lashes, glow for the cheeks, and red lips. When I want that flawless glow, I use my Laura Mercier Glow Powder in the shade medium translucent.

No instructions needed: I  make a fish face, and I pile it on baby...all over my cheeks, forehead, and cupid bow. Sometimes I look like a clown, but in a few hours, I look beautiful. 

The results are always natural and smooth looking. So, that is how I get my face to look like silky gold.

Here is a picture above with my final look. What do you think? Oh please be helpful in the comments:)

 I do not want to give too much away, but you may not want to miss an upload. Yes, I am coming with .....well I can't say at the moment. Just stay tuned. 

Well, that's all for tonight ...

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!

A Few Sunday Bits: Starting New Habits Effective Immediately

A Few Sunday Bits: Starting New Habits Effective Immediately

Oh hey, Darlings, it's Sunday. You know that day that we all love that comes before blue Monday. Yeah, that one. 
As I sit here after church planning my week, I ran across a few things that sparked my attention and provoked my thoughts. And I figured I would share them with you guys on this morning.

  • Yesterday I Saw A Quote: Get In The Habit Of Asking Yourself: Does This Support The Life I'm Trying To Live.
Oh, boy did that resonate with my soul.

Question: Are you protecting your visions and dreams?

The hardest lesson I have ever had to learn is moving things and people who do not align up with the life I am trying to live. When I decided to change my life and do better for myself, I was younger, and I didn't realize those that were in my inner circle may not except my new way of thinking and living.

Side Note: When you have to move people to the back of your life it doesn't mean they are bad people. It only means yall are on two different pages at the moment.
My light bulb moment may not happen when yours happens.

So, if something does not support the life, you are trying to live. Make some changes because  its time for increase and elevation in life.

Here's what I put in my journal:
  • Starting A New Happy Schedule: Create A Happy Journal. Things happen in life, but I am starting a new habit of just saying to myself and others. Happy Sunday, Happy Monday, Happy Tuesday, Happy Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Then Repeat. #positiveenergy
  • Present In The Moment: Being In the moment is so vital to our true happiness. With I-Phones and social media at the palm of our hands. I used to post everything and say everything online. But now I have pictures of fun things and outings with my family we only share amongst ourselves. The other night we all sat around the dinner table looking at old family pictures. We laughed for hours at one another. After two hours I realized no one was on their phones are laptops. We even watched a Winnie The Pooh movie unbothered. LOL, I was happy because I had no urge to post one bit. Besides, I have been slowly removing my babies offline, because of the breach and the real-life perverts who sit around and only want to watch  But that is another day of babbling. Sidenote: A lot of the websites are getting it under control. 
  • Planning A Peace Day: Anyone who knows me knows I will take a day of peace. That means I will take a whole day to recharge myself, mentally, and spiritually. You know so I can release peaceful energy to those that are around me. When My peace cup is full, then I am ready for the world. So, I encourage you to find one day and do whatever brings you the most peace on that day.
You know life is funny sometimes. We are all so busy and trying to do so many things that it becomes easy to neglect the simple things in life. You know those things that bring pure joy, love and wealth. I realize most of the time I am in control of how I feel and react to the things that can alter my energy. 

Last but not least, whatever is not supporting the lifestyle you want to live, quietly move it to the back burner. Yes, it is that simple. :)
Starting new habits is easy as 1,2,3. 

Do you have any new habits you want to share?

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
