turning 53...a few fun things to share...

as we age lets face it 
there are a few things we need to spruce up!

1. the tired eyes...
cure: my new mascara!
it's a fiber mascara and i love it!
it's called "younique"
the fibers stick to my lashes, they look fuller and longer
I even leave the house with no make-up just my mascara!!

2. the gray peeking in to say hi...
cure: my new "E-Salon"
forget Loreal!
I love this product & the packaging is like receiving a gift in the mail!

3. my journal
cure: photos!!
my new photo obsession!
photo stickers, photos & photo strips!
perfect for journaling!

4.  my jeans...
cure: a nice nude heel instead of a flat,
already i feel younger!
