How To Wear Eyeshadow Over 40

How To Wear Eyeshadow Over 40

I certainly enjoy my mid-forties – there’s a confidence that comes along with being a certain age and I celebrate the aging process as much as I can. Except for that little part of the aging process influenced by gravity. Um, can we opt out of that part?

As our skin matures, it gradually loses elasticity. Couple that lack of elasticity with the constant pull from gravity and we’ve got some loose, excessive skin issues.

Odds and Ends

Did you follow the whole Rushtok thing? I thankfully did not because it would have been a slippery slope of time suckage on my part.

Walking is key. Non-gym-goers agree.

Buttery soft leggings for 23 bucks. I even broke free of my black addiction and bought the navy and dusty red shade. #callmecrazy

Parents of teens, this account is a must-follow. lolololol

Have you tried cupping for back pain? I did it a few years ago and the results were incredible.

Yes, please, I’d love to be invisible to mosquitoes.

Like many of you, I’ve been glued to the situation unfolding in Afghanistan. My dear friend created this document of vetted resources to help.

This linen blouse is a great transition piece from summer into fall. I have two colors and have worn them like crazy this summer.

Clearly Fall is on the brain and I am so in love with this top and trousers.

I miss Anthony Bourdain so much. Have you all seen Roadrunner yet?

This month’s Boxwalla beauty box features Votary and both products are incredible. $49.95 for a $254 value!

If you need help slowing down maybe this thread will help?

These were made with colored pencils! #whutthewhut

Happy Friday! Hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead.
