One of those moments....

So a funny thing happened to me tonight.....I was shaping my eyebrows (long overdue and much needed).....first off I must say I have the best eyebrow shaping kit from Anastasia (you can get it at Nordstrom too)....anywho....I was plucking away in a mirror that makes your face look gigantic and I started to notice them....you know them....lines, pour marks, blemishes, tired eyes......lets just say my face wouldn't look so hot in High Definition......for the first time in a long time I really stared at myself....."Wow" I thought......"I am really starting to show some age!".......and I am not writing this to make you feel sorry for me or tell me its normal.....but I just really feel so immature inside sometimes and so young that I was caught off guard at the site in the mirror.....a sight showing the early signs of just getting older.....my skin is not so elastic as it use to be.....and that doesn't just go for the face.....Yes, Yes, I do use face cream everyday.....and I have started to use Daily Moisture lotion for my body that contains SPF 15 (Thanks Nanna for leaving the Lubriderm Lotion, I love it) and I drink TONs of water and do my best to eat healthy and get my exercise in......I guess its all about getting older and growing up.....I suppose I am not such a spring chick anymore......just wanted to share in case any of you other ladies may be feeling the same.....

I really know what you mean. I think it is funny that I did that same thing Sunday Night. I can't believe I missed this blog. Anyway, you just take care of yourself. A good night cream and rest, right food will do wonders for you. You are on the right track. Besides you will always be beautiful to me.
