5 Ways To Feel Younger

Let’s face it, growing up is hard. Finding the perfect career, finding the love of your life, growing a family, raising children, buying a house, saving for vacations, the list goes on. Life really wears us down. I mean, I work part time, but also handle many stay-at-home mom duties, the rest of the day. My children’s lives take over my own personal goals, which to this day, I still have trouble balancing. As we’re getting older, and so as our offspring, life passes by. Here are a few ways to feel and look much younger, fresher and more lively so life doesn’t break us down early on in life.

I love my age. Old enough to know better, young enough to not care. Experienced enough to do it right.

To through it out there, I’m 31. I hit my thirties just last year, and have been a parent for 10 years. I laugh when young twenty somethings tell me their tired. Because, when I was 24, already had a 3 year old, and newborn. I don’t want anyone reading this feeling like they are holding a special card saying their life is unique and that’s the reason why you feel so so tired. Well, truth is, we all have 24 hours in a day, and it’s up to you to run the day, or the day runs you.

  1. Cook More.
    Cooking your own food, in your own kitchen, not only gives you life skills, but also helps budget money, and saves time from going out and buying unhealthy food at you’re not preparing.
  2. Watch What You Eat
    Food is fuel. Eat right feel amazing!

  3. Sleep Enough
    Beyonce get’s 24 hours in a day too, and she has newborn twins and a 5 year old. Somewhere in her day she still manages to be a great wife, and mother, daughter, sister, and entertainer. Trust me, she’s tired too. We all are. Whatever your work schedule or lifestyle is, 7-9hours is definietly enough to get those ZzZz’s.
  4. Exercising Regularly
    In two weeks, you’ll feel it.
    In four weeks, you’ll see it.
    In eight weeks, you’ll hear it.

    Fall in love with taking care of your body. Period.

  5. Maintain A Positive Attitude
    You are what you think you are when it comes to aging. Seniors who think of age as a means to wisdom and overall satisfaction are more than 40% likely to recover from a disability than those who see aging as equal with helplessness or uselessness.

Feeling younger, and loving your age isn’t rocket science. It’s all common traits we all know, but its all about the attitude and how much you really want to feel great and feel alive. Money isn’t a factor. And don’t let that run you. If you can’t afford to take that SoulCycle class, or new trendy gym downtown, take matters into your own hands and work-out at home. Waking up, get up, and tackle these 5 things. Feel good and feel great!

Mom Provocalips

As a mom make-up tends to be the last on my priority list. Before, you’d find me going nut’s at a MAC counter. Now it has been the last place where I ever want to be. Drug-store make-up have been my options. Where money is now prioritized to household issues, and my children. I’d rather buy a new cooking pot, then the latest bronzer sold at department stores.. My make-up bag is all YouTube drug-store influenced.

My latest purchase: The Kiss-Proof color, poppin’ pigment Rimmel London Provocalips.

16Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour

Color-sealing coat on one end, the kiss proof color on the other. You can get the look that won’t budge in two simple swipes.

Mom Make-Up

I’m a true sucker to YouTube make-up reviews. The price is right, and drug-store options are it for me!! I’ll take my favorite beauty guru’s word for it, as they experiment, and make their first impression. From there I’ll make the call, and for this product — I totally went for it! I purchased a few of these Rimmel London Provocalips at my local Ulta and CVS (CVS, was sold out of the color I wanted!)  After a couple day’s alternating between two colors, I’m quite impressed.

Simple, easy, swipe on, leave on, light weight, a tad sticky/tacky. I’ll deal with it. It’s $7 bucks, but don’t forget to use your coupons!

I purchased 2 colors from my local UltaUlta is currently having their buy 1, get one 50% off deal, so $9 for a pair and after a coupon!

The colors I purchased, and currently loving are:

Kiss Fatal & Make Your Move.

For someone who believes on putting on your make-up at home, and leaving out the door, this product is something that stays put through a full day of eating, drinking and life in general. The staying power is amazing. It is a bit drying but I don’t like gloss so it’s perfect for me!
