Check out these Tanaka Anti-Aging Facial Massages!

Japanese beauty expert Yukuko Tanako presents her anti-aging face contouring massage. This routine takes 3 minutes and reduces wrinkles, sagging, dark circle and puffiness. I recommend you do this massage with almond oil which doesn't clog pores. I will be doing this routine everyday and will let you know how it works. This is a part of my new anti-aging series.

My review on Olay Professional Pro-X Cleansing System

Olay has really out did themselves this time. I just purchased this system at Walmart a week ago and I have to rave when raving is do. It claims to cleanse 6x better than basic cleansing. First off, this is a very simple basic tool to use. You put in the 2 AA batteries which are included, click in the brush and press on, me likey already. There are 2 speeds controls, normal and a little more intense if you will. It's waterproof so you can use it in the shower, which is nice because steam from your shower opens up your pores so this will work even better. It also comes with a sample of the Olay PRO-X Exfoliating Cleanser which is effective yet gentle. I have to say this is the most exciting product I have purchased in a long time. I love when I find a product that make my little heart flutter with anticipation to get it home and use it. This tool feels amazing on your skin. It exfoliates and improves circulation. It didn't cause any irritation and I would know if my skin was irritated right away. I am the poster girl for irritation believe me. Look up irritation in the dictionary and you'll see my little red face smiling back at you. This product was 29.99 in Walmart but I think that is the set price anywhere. I think its a great price for what you get. My skin looks fresher and more alive. I use it once day. If you have sensitive skin I suggest starting out slowly to see how you tolerate it. I personally think no one should have a problem with this system. I am a happy camper enough said. What do you think about this product. I can't compare it to Clarisonic because I have not got my hands on one of those bad boys yet. I think it's too expensive but that's just my own little beauty bloggers opinion. Check it out, I think it's worth every penny out of my little pink purse.

How would you like to see your world?

If I could see the world the way I wanted It would be in a constant state of beauty and peace. For one, I would like to see every one drinking tea other than coffee, chai tea to be exact. Tea is so calming and gives you a sense of peace in a cup even if it only last 5 minutes. So every one would be holding a cup of tea. Secondly everyone would be wearing something beautiful actually whimsical if you will. The clothes would flow nothing binding. White is the color that comes to mind but I would like to see powder blues, baby pinks, jewel tones, and greens. No black or grey allowed. In my world everything would shine and sparkle! The wind you would be lite but you where you could feel its pleasant touch. It would be a comfortable 70 degrees and it would be sunny with bright blue skies. The evenings would consist of light blue and purple skies with a tinge of orange and gold. There would be flowers blooming everywhere and trees high and mighty. There would be the scent of lavender, jasmine and orange blossoms all the time, well maybe some vanilla and pumpkin pie as well to mix it up. There would be no such thing as concrete, as we would walk on grass. Music would be playing in the background constantly. Calming, beautiful music like some of the songs I have on my blog. Everyone would have the look of content on there face as they passed you by. How would you like to see your world?

Dr. Wayne Dyer speaking on how to change the way you look at things.

This is just one of many vidoes Dr. Wayne Dyer has on how to become a more spiritual and enlightened person. I have read three of his books and am more than impressed with his way of seeing things. He is a very popular speaker and has numerous books which I will be doing a review on in another post. You can also watch more of his videos on your tube or visit his website here

I want to become an Esthetician

I have a passion for skincare more than anything else. I would like to become a medical esthetician and be able to perform more extensive treatments such as lasers and microdermabrasion. I would love to open my own spa one day. Now this is going to be quite a challenge being I am a stay at home mom with no one available to care for my son. I would have to go to school in the evening and get a job during the day as a childcare provider in my home. I have put my child first and put my dreams on the back burner for a while but I am feeling this gnawing feeling inside of me that won't go away. I want to do this so bad but I feel guilty for going for my dreams. I am 37 and not getting any younger which is scary. I know I could be successful and that would not only benefit me but my family as well. This is my plan and I hope I could pull this off. When you have a dream you go for it, right? What are your dreams and passions? Do you have challenges in meeting your dreams? I would love some feedback!
