Fa La La La La LaLaLaLa

It is begining to look a lot like Christmas and I love this time of year!  Although, living in the northeast, it does get cold and I do not love that, but it is only a part of one of the many cycles in life.  We prepare to celebrate holidays in our home, the highlight being Christmas Eve.  The halls will be decked, we will go to church and sing as we reflect on what it must have been like on that night. May you all be blessed as you go through the preparations to make it special.  What traditions do you have with your family?

My favorite Anti Aging line is offering increased cash back for a limited time on two beautiful products.  The De-Aging Day Creme SPF 20 is now giving $13. cash back on a $65. jar.   You can order it at my cosmetics website www.timelessbeauty4u. Also  for $139.95 ($34. cashback for a limited time) is the Booster Kit.  Within this website you can also view the entire Cellular Labs De-Aging line as well as all of our most wonderful cosmetics. This luxurious line compares to a high end brand selling for more than 3 times this price at department stores.  Specials just in time for Christmas.  Don't forget to take special care of your skin this winter, it has taken care of you for all these years.

Make this day an absolutely beautiful one and do something special just for you!

Time to be Thankful

It shouldn't be that we need a day to be thankful.  I believe that we serve a God who deserves our thanks all the time.  We will sit down Thursday and eat too much food...even though we say every year we won't.  I will make more healthy versions of some of our favorites.  Well that is a step in the right direction.  I love the day, company, family, friendships, health, God's blessings.  So much to be thankful for!  

I will work at not feeling stressed in my preparation for guests.  I know I will be at times, but I think I have enough ready ahead of time so it will go smoothly.  It is a good thing!  I pray you all have a wonderful celebration of the many blessings. I know there are hard times for many families, but still, this is a time to look at the blessings, because they are there. 

We are entering a season where we will be running all over, doing much, visiting with family and friends.  I truly love this time of year.  May you all be blessed and work at not being stressed!

Setting Clock Back Tonight ?
There appears to be mixed feelings about this.  Personally, I am not sure which side I would be on.  I surely don’t like getting up with it so dark in the morning (generally I am a morning person).  In light of that (no pun intendedJ), does it really matter to me if it is dark at 5PM or 6PM?  Probably not.  If asked to vote on this, I suppose I would vote to keep it as we are doing; spring ahead and fall back.   Now, today will be a very long day, especially if I decide I can stay up an hour longer.
Now, how will our bodies react to this?  They will adjust as they always do.  As the days have grown shorter, we tend to snuggle in for the winter spending more time indoors. 
Our skin dries out more because of the heat in our homes and the lower humidity levels.  Be sure to drink your water to hydrate your bodies (don’t forget, your skin is your largest organ).  Many of us equate drinking lots of water with the heat of the summer; we should drink just as much (if not more) during the winter months to really keep ourselves hydrated.  Dry skin, chapped lips, brittle nails are all symptoms of winter, but also of a body without enough water.  We may drink more tea, coffee, hot chocolate all with caffeine which can be debated whether or not they cause you to lose more water than they put in.   You might consider some Herbal Teas if it is hard to drink water when the weather is colder.  Just because the air is colder does not mean you should be drinking less water.  If not ice cold, just drink it at room temperature.  Keep it around so you can sip throughout the day, extra if you are drinking more caffeine.
In addition to drinking more water, we need to be sure to moisturize our skin.  For chapped lips, my recommendation is a really good lip balm or treatment without petroleum additives (available here http://www.timelessbeauty4u.biz/).  You should also make sure that you use a good moisturizer and bath/shower gel.  Take care of your skin and it will take care of you. 
As you fall back, be sure to take care of yourself this winter.
