Lifestyle | Happiness and Well Being

From the moment that we wake up, the first thought that enter into our mind determines the next thought and the next and the next. It takes a thought 17 seconds from the moment of inception to gain momentum thus leading to similar thoughts of it's kind. If that first thought is full of doubt, worry, fear or anything negative, then the energy that flows from that thought will continue to gain momentum leading to more of the same.  The Law of Attraction can't help from bringing us more of what we're thinking.... so we must think happy thoughts from the moment we wake up!

Beauty | Rejuvalite MD Anti-Aging Light Therapy System Review + Video Demo @trophyskin

 red light therapy
What is Red Light Therapy? I was searching YouTube for skin care devices when I came across a video demonstrating the Rejuvalite MD Anti-Aging Light Therapy System. As I watched the video, I was hoping that the reviewer would show some before and after photos which they never did. I became more intrigued wondering if a system like this could really work for me. I'm 57 and have been battling ovarian cancer and undergoing chemotherapy for the last six months. I really wanted to know what the benefits were from red light therapy. My skin has taken on so many different changes that I knew I had to invest in some dermatological procedures or buy some anti-aging devices and begin using them myself. I reached out to Trophy Skin and asked if I could receive their Rejuvalite MD for review purposes, I would try it for a period of time then review it here on my blog as well as on my YouTube channel.

Fashion | Slowly Losing Weight and Building Muscle with a High Protein Diet

Losing Weight
It's been almost six weeks since I did a fashion post. I told myself that I wasn't going to take any photos until I lost 5 lbs..... so yes, I've managed to loose 5 lbs and put on a little muscle too.  When you're over a certain age, it's really hard to put on muscle. It's a little easier to burn fat and loose some unwanted pounds, but when it comes to putting on muscle, it's a whole new ball game.  For me, it takes months and months for my body to increase muscle mass. While I did manage to lose 5 lbs of fat, my lower body still looks flabby because I've only put on a little bit of muscle.  At 57, I can honestly say that I won't see the kind of improvement that I'm looking for... specifically an tight tush probably until this time next year.  Some people might look at me and say wow you look good but it's still a flabby thin no matter what angle you look at it!

Lifestyle | Are Inflatable Hot Tubs the New at Home Accessory for Small Spaces

Coleman Portable Hot Tub Review
Living in California (unless you're really wealthy) we sometimes have to make a trade off..... warm weather year around for smaller homes with less yard space.  I have a nice 4/bdrm home with limited backyard space.  About 10yrs ago we renovated our house all the way back to the property line and it left us with a small quaint backyard space. It wasn't long afterwards that we decided we no longer wanted to deal with grass in our little quaint backyard so we hired a landscaper to design us a quaint little oasis that would fit our retired lifestyle. We traded in the grass for cement and had a planter built and a Pergola installed to give us some shade. Over in the corner we have a portable waterfall to give us the soothing sounds of water flowing.... I'll explain how I feel about filling it up every two days in another post.

Lifestyle | Amazing Home Design Magazines That I Bet You've Never Heard Of

Home Design Magazines

One of my goals for this year was to create a vision board and I haven't gotten around to it yet.  The most important part of the visualization process is creating a vision board so that you can see all the beautiful elements in life that makes you happy.  If you don't have any of those unique elements in your presence, then the beauty of the visualization process is that you can visualize them into your existence.  I decided to look for magazines that had lots of visualizations of what my dream home would look like so of course I headed straight for the home section of magazines at my local bookstore.
