The Woman in the Mirror is Me

Have you seen yourself in the mirror lately? I did. And I didn't like what I saw. Dark spots, fine lines, and gray hairs! I'm old. I'm really getting old. =(

A few years back, I've been told that I look young at my age but that was before I got married and gave birth. Now at 31 years, I can't help but ask myself if I would still pass as a women in her 20s. Hmmm... I guess not specially from all those sleepless night that comes with taking care of a baby. Quino turned 6 months last week by the way.

So now, the big question. Should I just let it pass since aging is inevitable anyway. Or should I do something about it? Hell yeah! I got to do something about it! ASAP! New Year is just around the corner which means I'll turn a year older in a few months!! Arrggh!!

First, I need to change my eating habits. I'll try to eat healthy. That means lessen all the fried stuff and add veggies to my daily meal. I guess I also have to lessen my junk food cravings. Exercise? Hmmmm... I've better start again soon. I actually liked the fact that I wasn't able to shed the extra 12 pounds since giving birth. I'm now at 115 lbs and I think it suits me well. It made me loom healthy than my previous 103 lbs, 5'4, sickly frame.

My make up kit (everyday essentials) consists of MAC studio fix powder foundation NC30, Avon smooth mineral blush in blushed, Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara, VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Lipbalm, Maybelline Lipstick in buff, and Revlon lipstick in true red. Those are the only makeup I use. I have some eyeshadows from Clinique and Lancome but I seldom use it anyway so it doesn't count. As for my daily regimen, I use Dove soap, Pantene shampoo and conditioner, Nivea lotion, Body Shop scrub, Ponds facial wash, and Nivea sparkling white cream.

Calling the beauty junkies and experts out there! Can someone recommend some of their favorite makeups and beauty products? I'm leaning on changing my blusher and lipstick. I heard about Nars orgasm and super orgasm. Any feedbacks? I'm also looking for the best anti aging and whitening products in the market. I've read about good feedback on VMV cleansers and Olay total effects. Are these good?

I'll get myself new products this year. I'll add these in my new year's resolution. My goodness, my son is so cute so I need to cope up with his looks. I don't want to be mistaken as my son's yaya!


young woman or an old lady?
