Health & Beauty: This and That

So many articles, so little time, I say about all that is offered up to better yourself, your appearance and even your outlook on life.

I prefer natural in all things makeup and hair color. Clothes I don’t go overboard – my closet, full of staple pieces and fashion that can be carried on throughout a few years, mixing and matching and creating my own simple style. I love how fashion has evolved now that we can actually wear flats to accentuate and feel sexy. Clothes have become more comfortable and consciously designed for the women on the go.

Lifestyle: Health and Aging Muscles

The past three months or even more, I’ve been on the go – working long hours, not sleeping well, nor eating healthy, and exercise has been put on hold, unless you consider driving back and forth to the country as exercise.  I realize just the other day while at Trader Joe’s, how unhealthy I feel, physically and emotionally. Thinking that perhaps I needed  a week or so just being disconnected from everything.  And of course the next five articles just happened to pop up in my social network – network if you will 🙂 {photo source}
