It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…Continue
When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!) Special outings with just one child and…Continue
I must admit, if you would have asked me my thoughts on ageing 10 years ago my reply would have been a negative one. And why not!?! Everything I had seen on television, in magazines, conversations with friends, etc. told me that once you get grays & wrinkles your life was pretty much over; you mine as well curl up into a ball and wait to die. Nothing about getting old seemed glamorous. Old people always complain about this breaking, that not working like it used to, etc. Ugh! Who…Continue

This picture says it all. These cream puffs are heavenly! Whenever I serve them to my guests, conversations cease and all you hear are “ooohs” and “aaahs”. As my twelve-year-old grandson would say: “These are good enough to make a grown man cry.” …Continue

Okay, so who besides me is sick of getting older???
Getting older means LOOKING older. And even if we can't remedy all the physical ills of aging, there are products that can make us feel more comfortable about our appearances.
I'm always on the hunt for the non-invasive miracle. I've tried SO many products - tools, scrubs, caviar...all with mediocre results. No fillers or surgery to speak of - not really a fan of scalpels or pumping my face full of toxins. But I…Continue

We all love glowing healthy skin. We do all sorts of things to maintain the youthful glow. Pay LOTS of $$$ for all the "new" products that we thrown at us in all our magazines and on TV. I could shell out a fortune trying them all out. Having worked retail in cosmetics........ Well let's just say old habits die hard.
This post however is not about all the latest and greatest. It is however about some tried and true…Continue
Understanding wrinkles and its causes:
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.
Stress is a major culprit that contributes to occurrence of premature aging signs. Fine lines near eyes and…Continue

I have a thing about cream cakes. They're a huge weakness of mine, like Kryptonite to Superman, but instead of dying, they make you happy. Well, that is until you realise you ate one too many and have to bust out the fatty pants (jogging bottoms)!
But who cares? I mean, fatty pants…Continue

I'm a terrible meal planner. I admit this. It's just conceptually difficult for me. I mean seriously, I can't think about dinner for Tuesday, on Monday. How do I know what I'm going to feel like eating a day in advance.

Another glorious day of rain in London. Week 27, 13 weeks to go and things are becoming more real to me at long last. I think that I just about feel pregnant! Now being the time that my (once) petite 5'1 and a half(!) frame has an extremely large protrusion jutting out from the front, it's no surprise really. It's funny how obsessed with weight and size we are. I really thought that when I became pregnant that I would almost be like a different person. That I would change, grow up and just…Continue

According to recent reports, Kate Middleton, the polished wife to Prince William, uses all cream-based makeup products. She uses a cream primer before adding her cream concealer, foundation and blush. It gives her staying power for those royal duties to which she must attend. She finishes by filling in her brows to help frame her face.
According to Lifestyle You website, Cate Blanchett, an Oscar winner, buys an expensive mascara which adds volume to her lashes.
