‘Beauty is only skin deep’ they say. Then why is it that every emphasis is placed upon the appearance of a woman? The definition of that proverb is that a pleasing appearance is not a guide to character. When I ‘discover’ on Instagram all I literally see are females prancing about in their underwear, butts and boobs I like to call them.
The female essence had been reduced to butts and boobs…doesn’t that just make us proud? Look at yourself and say ‘I am a butt’ or ‘I am a boob’. Thats just makes me cringe to be honest. When we sit back and think about what we believe to be a attractive, we see that it’s all merely physical.
That rant over there brings me to this week’s blog post. As I am shedding the kgs and growing in my weight loss journey, I am discovering that I have unrealistic ideas of what…

After four months of playing in Jack Frost’s wonderland, our skin tends to be quite unpleasant and dry to the touch. I can’t speak for everyone when I say this but what I do know is now is the time to welcome in the new season with open arms. The sun will be out more often, and your body will change its past routine. If you kept your skin velvety soft and hair unlike autumn leaves, Kudos to you! You understand the way seasons works.
We all anticipate for the spring to allow for us to put our feet up some and relax with all the lotions, layers of pants, and 32oz water jugs. In the real world, that’s not bound to happen. When one door closes, another opens. Yes- you still have to moisturize and drink water to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but not as much as you…

Lipstick has become a beauty staple for me the past few years. I wear it almost every day, and I get a lot of questions from friends and readers which types of lipsticks I wear and how I actually make it last all damn day. My friends are always pretty surprised that I can go most of the day, while eating and drinking, and still have my lips pretty much fully intact. So today, I am sharing 5 steps that will make you lipstick stand the test of time…or until you decide to wash your face. See below!
1. Exfoliate and moisturize
I wash my face every night, and I always make sure to exfoliate my lips because wearing lipstick as often as I do, it can easily dry out my lips. Some people use lip scrubs, but I found that using a washcloth and water works just as well and is a cheaper, easier way…

The sit-up exercise, through many years, has been chosen by many as a “spot reducing” exercise for the mid-section. When you walk into fitness facilities, you would see dozens of people on the floor, crunching away, thinking that they would get nice, tight abs by doing repetition-after-repetitions of the sit-up exercise. However, many research suggests that energy balance is still the key to weight loss and decreasing risk factors for obesity, (4).

We always try so hard to please others. We seek acceptance and approval to feel better about ourselves. I’m not saying this is wrong, we need more selfless and generous people in the world but what we don’t do that should come before seeking approval from others is seek approval from ourselves. Accept ourselves. We are so much more than we may think. From outer space we may look like nothing but specks of dust in a universe so vast but within us is a light brighter than any sun in the sky, stars that could fill the universe and more. Within us is our own universe. No one else has the same universe as you so why do we hide it? Why do we push it away with doubt? Why don’t you let people see the beauty from within? Why don’t you see the beauty inside you?

It is never the wrong or right time to better yourself. It doesn’t have to be the first day of the week, it doesn’t have to be in the morning, and it doesn’t have to be at the start of a new year. It can seem overwhelming if you haven’t been physically active for some time, but anyone can start a new fitness regime, stick to it, and achieve their goals!
