It's me! I've always been a smaller person, 5'4 115 ish. But.... then I met my husband and a couple years later.... boom... relationship weight. "Before I knew it" I was almost 150 pounds and depressed and crying on the floor of my closet. That lasted awhile before I did anything about it too. Finally, long story short... I got up and said, enough. It was a slow process for me personally, I lost 10 or 15, then after my wedding I got serious about working out and eating healthy. I've kept the weight off for two years. Point is, when you think you have reached bottom, you give up, or like me, you say "I'm just going to be ok with being this weight" bc I was too depressed to see any other future..... just know that if you get up and start living the life you WANT ...whatever your going through, soon enough, you'll look back and think wow, it's already been 4 weeks, 6 months, a year, and I'm actually ok :)

Here are my favorite things to do to get my skin ready for the season.
Everybody needs to exfoliate, no matter your age or skin condition. Getting better skin fast is quite easy. Just make sure to add a product that exfoliates into your daily routine, and you’ll get glowing skin in no time. Exfoliation helps skin look better right away by removing dead cells from the skin’s surface.
The air is getting drier... first thing you should do is get the humidifier turned on at home. The second thing is you can add in a super hydrator like hyaluronic filler or a hydrating serum. And of course, drink plenty of water. A person is supposed to get 1/2 their body weight in oz of water daily. For example, if you are 200 LBS, you should get 100 oz of water a day.
The summer sun has done its damage and now it's time to lighten and suppress those spots! Use products that contain Kojic Acid, Mulberry, Bearberry and Licorice to lighten brown spots naturally. Seek out a skincare professional to get your skin looked at under an ultraviolet light like a Woods Lamp. Ask them to let you take a peek, you may be shocked to see the damage your skin has endured. And as always, apply sunscreen daily.
Along with fall comes new smoky eye makeup and dramatic eye liner. The eyes really have the attention in fall/winter makeup. Unfortunately, that’s also where the first signs of aging can occur with fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. A quick trick to brighten your eyes is to use anti aging skin products that are specifically developed for your eyes. Use a crème that tightens around the eyes while brightening dark spots.

I've been through some real life struggles this past year and came to realization that I am the creator of my own life. The struggles I am presented with, are my own. I've had to let go of toxic people, let go of the what if's. I've battled with self esteem and image issues. I also realized that for 8 years, I have been relying on my husband to do EVERYTHING for me. When did I become this person?

With juicing being all the rage right now, and my love for trying out anything new and on the rise.... I decided to get at it. I love it. I can't believe all the fruits and veggies I get in my diet now.
