Honestly… I was never really good at discipline.
Every Monday I would start dieting and on every Wednesday I could already go and confess my sins to the Almighty.
Every year I try and enrol myself in the fitness studio (that is located in my building, literally), but the women who’s in charge of the gym doesn’t want to bill me cause she already knows I’ll bale out on her and the gym.
Every spring I make myself go to work with my bike. But as it always goes, it starts getting to hot and to sweaty, and the draft… OMG the draft is the silent killers my friends!
I don’t even want to think about them expensive vitamins that just lie down on my bathroom cabinet. I’ve switched jobs like a thousand times, always with a new obsession or a new hobby.
Looks like a quite a mess, my life.
But then again, I’ve been getting this question more and more lately and that is… how are you so successful in life? I’m a business woman, editor of a (could say) legendary teen magazine, blogger, mother of two well behaved, successful, brilliant young men, a house wife, not a bad wife (he-he). I love to take pictures, write and wander through life. I’m super active on the global social networks… In some aspects of my life I seem to appear very consistent. Can’t miss a single day without posting something on Instagram… lately I’ve let go the meat and haven’t tried an animal for over 6 months. In the morning there is a healthy breakfast already waiting for me, I’m actually never late on almost anything and I am good at organising time, for myself as well as others! That’s right, no gym for me but I do walk… that must count for something.
One thing I simply never forget… the beauty routine. I am at the edge of obsessive when it comes to cleansing my face both in the morning and in the afternoon, washing it off, putting on a serum and all those different creams.
The reason for obsession is my fear from wrinkling! I can deal with a few of them but not a lot. Yeah I know that the years must take its toll, but still… who wouldn’t wanna live forever?
Did you know that those wrinkles you get from smiling only shows us the unhealthy nutrition you’ve been consuming for years? Getting old and gravity, worst enemy for us, women with age… It is as it is, and as long as I can, I will not go under any procedures. I still wanna be able to laugh when my witty older son says something so funny I find it almost inspirational!
I don’t want to look like Nicole Kidman or Meg Ryan.
I’m more for hydrating creams. Possibly the ones that take care of sleep loss and weight loss.
But the next big thing right now is, La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo. A real miracle worker runs 24/7. And as we are fighting the wrinkles all day and all night long we need something like that. Go girls!
Little bottle looks like a perfection. By a simple mechanism, I can choose if I want the day or the night version to be blessed with, as both of them exist in the same beautiful silver bottle, combined yet separated. The daily cream works on 3 levels and it stops the formation of lines and wrinkles, and the night one contains a formula that helps in relaxation and regeneration.
I’ve been using it for almost 2 weeks now and I have to say my face is looking better each day. The same feeling as I had a long, well deserved beauty sleep. Of course, the wrinkles haven’t disappeared completely. I don’t really want them gone. Makes me look more experienced. But as I said my skin is gaining back its original, young-like colour and I kind of dig it. If you know what I mean! Thumbs up!!
