I’m not sure why emotional expression got such a bad reputation. Maybe it’s because they make so many people uncomfortable when they are expressed. This is not a great condition to be in. Being able to express feelings and emotions openly is the only way to heal a heart that has been broken, to let someone know how we feel about them, and to express love genuinely.
Those who can not express their feelings openly are easy to spot. They are either filled with nervous anxiety because someone is causing them to withhold them or being pressed down by someone who does not personally want to deal with them. It does not mean they are not there. When someone cannot express their own emotions, they seem to become a very angry and negative person. When someone’s feelings are suppressed by another, they tend to become depressed and despondent.
We all need expression. We all have differing opinions. Being able to express our views openly is not only healthy but our right. Freedom of expression is what our country has been built upon. When this is not allowed, then our country becomes sick. Freedom of expression is what our lives are built upon, and when this is not allowed, we personally become sick.
I can’t even state this truth enough. It’s why we need friends, family, counselors, and ministers. It’s because we need to express who we are safely and healthily. Without this luxury, we all become sick.

Over time I have been down the road of searching for information on products that are relevant to my age group. As we grow older our choices must adapt and change. These can be choices regarding fashion, make-up, and definitely skin care. As females, we experience so many changes in life. Along life’s highway our need to express ourselves, love ourselves, and even preserve ourselves, becomes a huge focus in our lives.
Below I have listed some of my favorite influencers when it comes to fashion, make-up, and skin care for the mature woman. The order you will find them has nothing to do with placement or rating. They are just chosen by what I have experienced over a period of time watching, listening, and learning from these beautiful women! I am not an expert in these areas, they are!
They do not know I am writing about them, nor was I approached or paid to write about them. They all simply add quality to my life, so I want to display their quality in a venue that I tend to do best: write my blog! I am by far NOT an expert on any of these subjects. I am simply sharing who I have liked and have chosen to spend my time listening to. This is not an entire list but some of the top influencers I have found when I seek out. As a consumer, a woman, and someone to investigates everything, I figure sharing with others is the best thing I can do!
Angie with Hot and Flashyis by far one of the best YouTube influencers and educators there is! I have been back and forth with many of them (as you will see) finding the best of the best! Angie works HARD to give a nice presentation of casual, yet classy, fashion, makeup tips and anti-aging products. She definitely goes the extra mile when it comes to presenting product, exposing the good, not too good, and more! With Angie I find in depth information regarding product ingredients, effectiveness, and performance. I find her honest, educated, and a real treasure when it comes to understanding facial treatments, serums, makeup and anti-aging products. Angie will personally test the durability of her make up choices and record the results. This is so helpful when going to make a purchase! She does trials on both high end and drug store type products and includes fashion from Nordstrom, Amazon and sometimes even Walmart! (This is not an exhaustive list!) Angie is personable, likeable, and very professional. She presently has over 900k followers. Check her out and lets bless her with ONE MILLION!
Christie Ressel is more than influencer, she is a fashion extravaganza and educator all in one! She provides information on wardrobe choices, power wardrobe picks, and how to use style to up level our game! She also adds make-up tutorials on her YouTube channel. Her website includes style classes that can be purchased and a style membership for personal style ideas and direction if desired. She addresses and sometimes dresses women of all ages from younger to more mature. Christie’s style is fun, flirty and classy! She has a cute and yet professional personality. She is simply herself and that is a lot! ( I love her jewelry choices!) Her YouTube channel will have more information!
Number three is Tania Stephens with 50isnotold. This is a link to her Instagram account. She also has a website with a lot of style information, and clothing links for purchase. Tania obviously works hard at what she does to present the best in style possible. Every outfit Tania displays is modeled perfectly with elegance and professionalism. You will find style from Chico’s, Amazon, J. Crew and sometimes also Walmart (She has added more since my original post!). Tania has a great down home style, beautiful presentations, and a cute personality. You can subscribe to her Instagram account and also her website for frequent updates. Tania has a beautiful website filled with information that obviously dates back a few years! So please go check it out!
Beth Djalali has a YouTube channel she calls “Style at a Certain Age.“ Beth presents beautiful classic style with lovely presentations, information pertaining to the “certain age” woman. She has a website that includes recipes, home interiors, style, and my favorite “Fridays with Oscar”, her German Shepherd. Every now and then she includes a make-up tutorial and other subjects pertaining to the woman of a certain age and style. Beth includes photo shoots at interesting locations with a lot of class and flair. She is personable to listen to and interact with on her YouTube channel. Any woman who watches her channel will suddenly feel a kinship with her as she draws us in with her honest portrayal of style that suits many of us!
It is my hope, wherever you are, you are living your life to the fullest! The most important part of life is the quality of time we spend and not as much the quantity. Endeavor to choose quality and your life will be filled with beauty and excitement! Remember, whether you are choosing style, make-up, or skin care products, to love yourself and acquire your own reflection of inner beauty portrayed on the outside as well!
Before I start out, let me give you a little definition of gossip I found in a google search:
“Rumor or talk of a personal, sensational, or intimate nature. 2. A person who habitually spreads intimate or private rumors or facts. 3. Trivial, chatty talk or writing.” (google definition)
“1 : a person who repeats stories about other people. 2 : talk or rumors involving the personal lives of other people. gossip. verb. gossiped; gossiping.”(google definition)
I always thought of myself as a private person. I like to talk about some of my personal experiences when I teach or get to know someone. This is a part of life. No one gets to know another person without an exchange of personal information.
I always considered gossip as intentionally harmful or that the gossiping person has the intent in their heart to cause damage to another. This certainly is many times the case. Gossip can also be about issues that are none of our business concerning another person. Spreading rumors and information about another person can be damaging just by exchanging information.
To some degree, we all have to talk about certain things that involve another person. This is a part of caring, a part of business, or a part of protection for ourselves or others. We can not simply cut ourselves off from the world and never discuss another human being. After all, we are all interwoven. Some things should be addressed if they will save a person from harm or out of genuine concern.
Investigative discussion regarding another might occur when finding the information is vital to our own health, well-being, or safety. I’ve been known to investigate many things about people just out of mere protection or understanding. Not everyone puts their cards out on the table in the beginning. So, I watch. It’s a way of getting to know someone.
Gossip in the tackiest form is just spreading rumors, whether they are true or not. They can be entirely true, and the formal gossip thinks it is their duty to spread the garbage. Unfortunately, they are sadly mistaken. It is no one’s business or duty to spread junk about another person.
We all know how harmful it can be when we have become the subject of someone’s gossip. It happens sooner or later because the practice is so widespread. Since I truly believe we reap what we sow, usually if there is gossip going around, the subject of the gossip usually had been doing the same thing. In the same respect, the one who is now gossiping about them will suffer the same consequences. So before you point a finger, better seek your own heart first! Don’t open your mouth until you thoroughly search your own heart and determine if the information is just being spread or essential to discuss.
What goes around truly comes around and in the same measure, if not more, later on! So it pays to be careful!
So many of us are like sponges. We tend to soak up what others give out, then place blame, guilt, and shame upon ourselves. Our burdens are heavy when we do this. We were never meant to carry other’s burdens. We were meant to care, not internally carry.
Along life’s road of bumps and grinds, we pick up those dirty rocks of blame, guilt, and shame then throw them at ourselves. No one else need throw them at us when we do the job for them. So, along we go, battered on the inside and wiped nice and clean on the outside like we took a shower in servitudes soap.
When we have a healed heart and are filled with grace and mercy, we can stand up to attend to other’s scrapes and bruises. If we can’t, it simply means we have not done our inner work. Not even prayer for another will work out when we carry resentment from taking on more than we need. Our sacks are filled with the wrong things, so we either suffer internal emotional bleeding or blame the one who is hurting.
Trust me, those who are hurting don’t need us to fill them with more than what they have. They need us whole. We need ourselves whole. A whole person will not create segments into dirty rocks that not only sling out at themselves but others. We all need to attend to the mess inside and the mess on the outside. We all need grace, mercy, healing, and hope.
It is possible to replace our dirty rocks for the things that give us strength not to take on other’s junk but to be a buffer in the storm for them. If we try to be that buffer without attending to ourselves first, we make jerks of ourselves and go around hurting people out of our hurt.
First, drop inner guilt, shame, and torture from taking on junk when we were not healed enough to do so. What I am saying is, “Drop the dirty rocks,” and get to cleaning up your inner closet! Your heart was meant for more than just being burdened and shamed.
Get things in proper order, even if this means spending special quality time with yourself. Take the time to heal, seek, and find who you really are without the grime you have added upon yourself.
Go to God within you for healing, empowerment, and hope. Do not leave that closet or sanctuary until you have found complete healing and sanity. THEN extend yourself into what makes you happy. This need not take the form of not being there when someone needs you. You can healthily do this if you do the inner work that stabilizes you. If you don’t, you will dump your mess all over anyone who approaches you and believe that you are justified doing it. This is NOT loving or caring.
In a world where real love is rarely properly defined, let me define it for you in a way it is not. It is NOT sacrifice at the risk of your own heart. Instead, love is giving out of wholeness. Love is also healing out of the same wholeness.
Be careful not to be rude in the process, or you will attract to yourself more reasons to be rude. Be merciful. “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.” (Holy Bible, and the Universal Law of Reciprocity)
Today during my morning meditation, I dropped everyone’s dirty rocks they threw at me over the years, and even some of my own I put on myself. What I heard in spirit was, “It’s time to clean the closet.” So I did. Will you join me?
“Today, I release all the dirt that I have had thrown at me and kept inside. I release all of the rocks thrown at me that hurt me over the years that came to me from other’s pain. Today, I release all of the garbage I put upon myself unjustly. I release guilt, shame, blame, dishonor, and rudeness. I release harsh words spoken to me that dishonored me as a person.
“Today, I replace all of the holes created by dirt, bringing into my inner soul love, tenderness, joy, happiness, respect, honor, and mercy. I will walk in these things until I draw them back to me many times over. Then, I will be fruitful and multiply the good things in life, always!”
I want to start off by saying this is very daring for me. It’s like an empath coming out party! So many of us have heightened senses and yet are told there is something WRONG with us instead of seeing what is completely RIGHT with us!
Learning to sail our ship through life as an empath is not an easy journey but it is one that is worth it! If you have been thinking you might be an empath, maybe it is time to get real with what you feel, think, and sense? Maybe it is time to accept and love the person you are with all of your beautiful sensations?
You can use your empath responses in good ways to give yourself knowledge of situations, sense danger more accurately, and embrace that intuitive person you are! Don’t allow anyone to cause you to feel flawed because you feel and sense things more than others do! You are a gift to this age and I want you to feel cozy in your own skin!
Contrary to many beliefs, being an empath is not something to heal from, but a gift to embrace and use as an intuitive compass. I am sharing my experiences and feelings as an empath so others can understand what it is like to be born one! Believe me, it’s OK! YOU are ok! So, let’s discuss it. Finding others who are like you will help you to embrace the beauty of who you are and to stop allowing others in who are continually trying to change you! What you can do instead is learn self acceptance and how to determine when your feelings are due to others outside of you or due to your own.
Every time I go online lately, it seems there is a new product endorsement or trend. Influencers are everywhere, from cosmetics to clothing to skincare and more! Honestly, I think it is fantastic and so much more entertaining than old ads flying into our faces. I love watching a good product demo by a real person!
Another trend that I am embracing even more is herbal, aromatherapy, or natural products. As I begin to get older, my focus is on quality and the purity of what goes in my body and on my body. As I was searching for some affiliate programs, I came across Herbal Dynamics Beauty! I am so pleased to have found this company!
When it comes to skincare, I love a good scent, don’t you? More than that, I love skincare that is good for my skin without harsh chemicals…
