In 2014, at 55yrs old, clearly you can see that my eyelids was starting to droop. The skin around my jaw line or jowls were getting a little hollow. By 2015 my face was fuller due to weight gain and my eyelids had gotten worse. I was having vision problems in my right eye due to the extra skin and I was very unhappy with my overall appearance. I decided to make some lifestyle changes so in April of 2015, I underwent Blepharplasty (Eyelid Surgery) which I blogged about here and on my YT Channel.

One year ago on April 27, 2015 I had Blepharoplasty aka upper eyelid surgery. I was very transparent throughout the entire process and blogged the entire journey here on my blog (Blepharoplasty) as well as created a playlist on my YT channel (Blepharoplasty Playlist). While this will be my last post of this journey, I doubt that it will be my last plastic surgery. I really want to have a breast reduction, but I'm going to wait until I have totally transformed my body from fat to muscle, that way I will be able to see how much of a reduction I really need.

I started my fitness journey during my birthday month in August 2015. The photos in the pink sports bra shows me at 34% bodyfat and weighing 151.5. Through a series of sugar detox, weight lifting and cardio, I got my bodyfat down to 25%. I don't weigh myself much but the last time I weigh myself I was 144.0 and i'm a whole lotta muscle now.

Beauty ~ My Thoughts on the #marcbeauty Remarcable Full Coverage Foundations Lacking Shades for Women of Color
When I first saw the thread in one of the makeup groups that I belong to on FB, I initially took the stance of feeling omitted and neglected by yet another high-end makeup line. I was feeling like so many of the others in the group that felt left out and a little bit hurt that out of 22 shades, there were only 3 for us to select from.

My journey into peptides comes on recommendation from my Dermatologist, he told me that I should be using them regularly so I'm in the process of trying different ones... some expensive and some in-expensive... so stay tuned for more peptide reviews to come! The Retseliney Peptide Complex Face & Neck Serum cost $16.99 and come in a 1 fl oz container dispensed by a pump. The pump dispenses enough for one application covering the entire face and neck. The gel is very lightweight and doesn't appear oily nor does it leave a sticky residue. It is perfect for use as the first step in the morning before applying a moisturizer and/or primer.

Himalayan Salt Lamps have been a part of my lifestyle since I started my Spiritual journey in 2008. That was the year that I retired from my 20yr career as a Flight Attendant. I had been around the world more times than I could remember experiencing more nationalities and religions than I could count, and this experience has left me with a profound quest of wanting to learn more about the one thing that we all had in common..... God.
