When my son was only five weeks old, we toured the school we would be sending him to when I returned to work. We walked through each of the brightly lit rooms, starting with the infant room. We ended the tour in the room of three-year-olds. Those children looked massive to me and I could not wrap my head around my little baby being one of those giants one day.…Continue

If you have been on an anti-aging regimen for some time now, you’ve probably come across peptides on the labels. It may be the first time you bothered about them, most especially if you’re still inclined to the retinoid school of thought when in comes to anti-aging skin treatments.
Peptides are in your face cream, like in Dervina, because they stimulate certain cellular-level activities…Continue

A few months ago, a couple of coworkers were trying to figure out my age. Eventually, one of them just came out and asked me. Several of them thought I was significantly younger than I actually am. I know this is not because of the way I look (I think I look my age), but rather because of the energy level that I have.…Continue

Skin is kinda my thing, I am a little more than obsessed with how skin works and reacts to internal and external substances. I believe that good skin starts from what you put in you in your body. Once you have figured out a diet that works for you. Meaning you and feel great and your skin looks AMAZING as a extra added benefit.
Then you can start to focus on skin care products that will help to repair the environmental damage that your skin has endured. Changing your diet is a…Continue

I went on a date with my son. For five hours we hung out together, I introduced him to the Lego store, we ate ice cream, he went on a carousel ride and we bought some books. He told me that he wanted to go on another date with me soon because he was "happiest with Mommy."
I love spending time with him - he…

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason. And though we often don't ever know the reason, sometimes, we get lucky enough to find out just why things happen the way that they do. I LOVE those little "aha" moments. They help to restore my faith and to reassure me that something greater IS actually in…Continue

As I gazed in the mirror this morning I could only cringe. New lines and wrinkles, new gray, new age spots....all this newness simply meant I was getting old. I am not obsessed with my age of 56 but I do acknowledge that I have more days behind me than what I will ever see in front of me. I wish I could see myself through the eyes of my grandchildren. They don't see the wrinkles or age spots but rather someone whose eyes twinkle when they are around, someone who feels silly and…Continue

Wrinkles make you look tired, older and dull. They take away the ripe youthfulness from your skin. With aging comes wisdom so does the wrinkles! The wrinkles are signs indicating that your skin is no longer able to produce collagen and elastin. This rips of softness and firmness of skin and causes crinkles, furrows and folds.

We’re the first generation to hit middle age (and official “senior” status) that knows we’re going to live longer—and healthier. And that means we still have at least another 20 years to make our dreams come true.
Julia Child, Gandhi, Dr. Ruth, and authors Laura Ingalls Wilder and Frank McCourt were all late…Continue

Wow. I know I am not the only one who thinks about the future and wish for this, to be spared somewhat from the ravages of time and to sail through the twilight of my life with ease and elegance. My older sister reminded me again recently about Baby Boomers and their needs. While I fall a year short of being officially…Continue

Although the 2013 Academy Awards are history, one gem - Amour - will continue to shine. This heartbreaking and unflinching movie was painful to watch but it stimulated conversations with more questions than answers.
As the people we love decline, how do we deal with the inevitable suffering?
Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke tackled this subject and won the 2013 Academy Award for best foreign language film. The leads, veteran French actors Jean-Louis…Continue
