Choosing Courage Over Comfort
Your skin deserves TLC
Our skin is our largest organ and it deserves so much TLC. I think what we're putting on our faces is very important. I really think about what I put on my skin and am vigilant with my research. I'm a huge fan of Vitamin C and Hyularonic Acid Serums.
I prefer a lightweight daily moisturizer that brings out the inner glow in my skin. Our facial skincare is important but let’s not forget that the rest of our skin also needs care. Beauty routines for me are an opportunity to notice changes within myself. The science behind skin-care products has come a long way but there’s still no such thing as an instant fix and consistency is key. Enhancing your neutral features and letting your real skin show through is what beauty means to me. After all the dedication and effort I put into looking after my skin, I prefer not to cover it up. Just as well the era of caked-on makeup and overlined lips is over.
WHAT IS NUFACE?
For those who don't know NuFACE and have never heard about Micro Current, let me introduce you. I must admit I only found out about this incredible device 2 years ago and haven't stopped raving about it since. Why? Because it works!
NuFACE is everything you need for your ultimate lift!
You can tone, lift, and contour facial muscles while reducing fine lines and wrinkles with the Trinity Complete and FIX® Starter Kit (See image) which is the most complete microcurrent and LED red light therapy kit.
It includes two devices, three attachments, and two activators for your best skin ever. This is the kit I have and I use it ever single day. What makes it special is that you can:
Tone, lift, and contour the facial muscles for a 5-Minute Facial-Lift®!
Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles like crow's feet, smile lines and the 11's with the precision of the Effective Lip & Eye Attachment

Instantly smooth fine lines and plump your pout in as little as 3 minutes with the FIX® Device
This kit also includes the Aqua Gel Activator to conduct microcurrent down to the facial muscle and hydrate skin for up to 24 hours!
ltimately, caring for your skin is simply personal. When it comes to anti-aging, I'm a fan of
microcurrent treatments as mentioned above and this is simply my fitness for my face.
It's a workout for my facial muscles in order to encourage brighter skin tone, reduce wrinkles, and give an overall lifted appearance. Whilst I am so dedicated and put in so much time and effort into looking after my skin, I also know that our daily habits have a big impact on what we see in the mirror. We are how we move and how we eat.
Exercising is one of the key things in delaying the effects of aging and increasing our beauty span. In addition, learn to love sweat during your workouts because it's the best kept secret for glowing skin. Sweating is an important and natural function of your skin and it also makes the skin glow by flushing out all impurities. After an intense workout, I also really love that post-workout glow.
Our skin is an outer reflection of our inner health. The condition of our skin also reflects what we eat and highlights the importance of looking after yourself from the inside out. Food is fuel and our bodies function best when we provide it with healthy, balanced and nutritious food. Therefore exercise and making the right choices in what we reach for to nourish ourselves is also going to help let our beauty shine.
Fresh Faced and Glowing
I wear make up for myself. It makes me feel good. I am all for multipurpose products. A good quality liquid blush is a must have. It's the most versatile product in my beauty cupboard. I use it on my eyelids, lips and cheeks. A quick way to bring a fresh flush to your face. It has to be a lightweight, sheer, buildable coverage which melts effortlessly into my skin. I also love bronzer. My favourite blush and bronzer are ideal and mostly all I need for my favourite look. I finish with a lip liner and brow pencil. The O Beauty look ... Subtle sun-kissed radiance, fresh faced and glowing. Less is more.
I make time for myself and make an an effort, because that's just how I am.
A woman, just trying to be the best version of herself.
That's who I am.
The Power of Scent
The sense of smell (or olfaction) is our most primitive sense and yet is one of the most powerful senses that cannot be turned off. As part of my daily work life working with creating signature scents for spaces, I understand the power of scent. Smell is the only one of the five senses which has a direct path to our limbic system, the centre of our brain which is responsible for memories, mood and emotion.
Just as a signature scent is a 'finishing touch' to your personal style and elegance or to a hotel lobby or a retail store, smell is also a big part of our health and or beauty routines. And it's no secret that smelling good goes beyond a great perfume.
Smelling good boosts your confidence and has an impact on how people respond to you. Making sure you always smell clean even after a long day at work or a big workout at the gym, is not only about feeling clean but also vital in making a positive impact on every situation. Don't you love if people stop you to compliment your smell? I do.
Besides the obvious number one requirement, which is having good hygiene habits, your deodorant, a subtle scented body lotion to help moisturise and make our skin smell amazing, your hair (who by the way doesn't love having shiny beautiful smelling hair) and how your clothes smell are all, not such big secretes to smelling great.
And of course the art of smelling good is complete finally with your personal signature scent, especially since "A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.“ -Christian Dior.
Your unique fragrance, your scent is one of the best ways to create a lasting first impression. People are naturally drawn to beautiful smells and a unique, beautiful fragrance will certainly get people more attracted to you. Your signature fragrance is your presence.
Scents are so much integral parts of our lifestyle. Personally, professionally and in our homes. Looking good and smelling good are intricately linked.
