We all have choices in life as to what we do and choose our way of being. I like to consider myself as someone who is always in the state of becoming. That way my options for renewal are always open. Our lives shift, we shift, and we grow. At least that is what we are supposed to do!
Along with our growth comes additions, subtractions, and reflections on new things. More or less, out with the old and in with the new! I believe our ultimate goal is service, no matter what form it takes. My places of service are with my business, my blog, and my YouTube channel. Wherever I land, I consider myself unique and always evolving.
Here are some places to venture to find out more about my services and some links to explore to find out about…
My first personal interest in yoga was when I was about 18 years old. I needed my yoga practice to offset my already busy work schedule. I needed energy, flexibility, stress reduction, and just plain old time to myself! Can you relate to this? As time went on, my yoga practice came and went according to my filling schedule. I had a renewed interest when children came along. The first thing I wanted was to be back into my nice work clothes, not to mention my jeans!
During a very stressful marriage break up, yoga became an anchor for me. My mind, body, and spirit needed the practice to keep balanced when my emotional footing was not as stable as I would have liked it to be. I have to admit my practice still was off and on as time seemed to constrain…
As a mother who had her son pass over when he was age 20, I’ve been so curious about the life that we call death here on earth. After my Jayson crossed over, I stopped believing in death, although we often call it that. I’m not sure “crossed over” is a good way to describe when someone leaves their body. I have wondered where we cross over to?
As Jesus explained, there is no actual death, just a crossing over to a new phase of life; being born again into a new state of being. Eternity is not for a few, but everyone. We were initially created as eternal beings in spirit. This remains the truth regardless of what our religious boxes want to teach us. I know my son still lives; I have seen the proof of this through signs. No, it is not an illusion, and it is not my wishful thinking or a coincidence.
Not long ago, I felt a distance from my son. I get that way now and then. I like to be reassured he is still with me. I know there will never be a disconnection in my heart because love can never be divided or separated. God made sure of this. Yet, I like to see some evidence. It makes my heart beat a bit faster to know I am supported, loved, and surrounded by my crossed-over loved ones.
So, I set up a sign by speaking out loud about what I would like my son to bring to me. I have always been partial to dragonflies, so that is what I asked him for; dragonflies. I don’t see them very often around where I live, so this would be a unique sign for me.
One day I came out of the bedroom, and my cat was doing crazy out in the living area! Upon the wall, high near the ceiling, was a huge dragonfly! I thought to myself, “Thank you, Jayson, and thank you, God!” It was not the last one for me to see. I had to take a long trip to my doctor’s office, and I had some apprehension about the long drive back and forth. I jumped into the car with my lunch and GPS to find the best route for the day. The moment I got into the car, a big dragonfly came flying up to the driver’s side of the windshield and fluttered there for a few moments. I could not help but smile because I knew it was from my dear son, showing me he was with me!
I know this all might sound nuts to some people but passed over loved ones are always with me in my life. They show me when I ask them to and usually not too often when I don’t ask. Now and then, I get a surprise, and something out of the blue will happen for me, to make me smile! Our love for those who spent lives with us will never die; why should we believe they have left us? Love is love in every sense of the word. After all, God is love, and God will never leave. In my world, so it is with our loved ones. They love connecting with us, and they sure don’t want it to be a spooky experience but a delightful one!
Experiment with your loved ones and ask for a sign from them! You will be surprised at what you might see in the days following!
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!
