Hello Friends, I hope all is well in your world. Now that I am over the age of 50, I have started thinking more and more about the skin I’m in especially my face. We’ve all heard that too much sun exposure is bad for your skin – too late, from 1976 to 1979 I’d bake every summer at Rehoboth Beach and even now I enjoy laying in the summer sun but not as long. Drink more water – I wish I could drink the recommended 32 oz, or is that 64 ounces daily, heck I’m lucky if I drink 8 oz every 3 days, that is of course unless coffee and wine counts.
Get plenty of rest – who me, the person that doesn’t get into bed until after midnight and then tosses and turns because my mind won’t shut down? Don’t smoke – too late, although I am a quitter, 5 years clean, (yeah me) I did smoke for over 30 years. Now more than ever I have to pay closer attention to how I treat my skin to avoid any further damage.
I recently ordered a bottle of Foxbrim 100% Pure Argan Oil from Amazon.com and started using it as a moisturizer for my face. After removing my makeup and cleansing my face, I put 2-3 drops on the back of my hand then using my fingertips apply it to my face, eyelids and lips.
Foxbrim 100% Pure Argan Oil is unbelievably light, easily absorbs into my face leaving it feeling nourished. Now that I’ll be spending more time in the sun, this product will definitely be up front and center as part of my daily moisturizing and makeup routine.
Foxbrim 100% Pure Argan Oil can also be used a hair treatment and pre-shave oil, but I think I’ll let my mini men try it for those purposes then I’ll let you know what they think.
How do you love the skin you’re in?

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world. Now that the heat of the summer is on, the heat of the oven is now off! That however, does not mean that there will be no more cooking or baking in the Blake household. Nope, it just means that the outdoor grill will be used more often and if the desserts don’t come from the freezer they will definitely be no-bake options.
So just in time for the weekend and in celebration of Father’s Day, this is today’s Foodie Feature
No-Bake Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes made with Reddi-Wip.
I used a box of Jello No Bake Cheesecake mix, fresh strawberries and Reddi Wip to create this easy breezy satisfying no bake dessert.
Following the directions on the box I mixed the Graham Cracker crust with butter and sugar, then using a spoon pressed a little of the mixture into the bottoms of 12 muffin cups.
In a bowl, I poured in 1 1/2 cups of milk then added the filling mix, whipped on low for a minute and then on medium speed for another few minutes until thickened.
Topped each Graham Cracker Crust cups with filling and refrigerated uncovered for an hour
Washed, cored and sliced several strawberries to top each mini cheesecake but not before first topping them with some whooshes of Extra Creamy Reddi Wip. I love the sound it makes coming out of the can and love even more the fact that there are only 15 calories per serving, so I added 2 servings of real cream to each!
What do you think, this was easy right? Do you have a Berry Joyful moment with Reddi-wip and berries that you can share for a chance to WIN a trip to the California Strawberry festival, or weekly prizes!

Hello friends, I trust you all are having a wonderful Wednesday. Some of you may or may not know that I have very fine and thin hair which unfortunately has been getting thinner as the years progress. I want to chalk it up to heredity because my primary physician as well as a dermatologist couldn’t diagnose the “root” cause – no pun intended.
At first I thought it was stress induced from being a caregiver to my grandmother, but she has since passed, 5 years now and my hair still hasn’t gotten thicker. I’ve had blood work and thyroid tests completed and nothing out of the ordinary was found, but it hasn’t stopped me from trying various hair re-growth products.
Recently, I had an opportunity to test a Biotin Vegetarian Capsule and Vibrance Vitamins from eunatural.com. Biotin is a vitamin that aids in hair growth and strong nails. I ordered it directly from Amazon.com and am currently in my 2nd week. There are only slight changes in the thickness of my hair, however, I will continue with the regiment and keep you posted on the results.
What do you use to keep your hair healthy and strong?
Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!

You think that at my age I would have been able to find the perfect bra, after all I’ve been wearing one for over 40 years. I remember my first lacy training bra, it itched to no end, but I was happy because I was wearing a bra. After training the tata’s I moved on to the real deal, a big girl’s bra, with hooks and no itchy lace. Despite that I’ve never been able to find one that fits in all areas…the front, the back, and the sides. I want one that doesn’t pinch or poke, one that has straps that won’t slide down my arm, oh, and it has to look sexy and be easy to wash.
Am I asking for too much?
Just the other day, I looked in the mirror and could have sworn that I was looking at my grandmother! The bra I had on didn’t have any support, the fabric was frayed and I was sagging – remind you of anyone?
You know thrifty me, I’ve gone the cheap route when purchasing bras, but I’ve also gone the expensive route getting fitted and everything but after awhile they don’t fit right. I am now on a mission to find the perfect bra before my 53rd birthday, and I’m starting online at unbelievabra.com
I checked out the website and have chosen the Silkee Short Minimizer because it’s advertised as having a smooth design, so there will be no unsightly lines, makes you look slimmer – a definite plus AND straps that will never fall down – ding…ding…ding, ladies
I think we have a winner!
What about you, do you have the perfect fitting bra?
