There are loads of blogs on the web by gorgeous 20-somethings posting makeup tips, daily fashions and product recommendations. That is not this blog.
#1. I am not 20-something.
I am a 38 year-old mother of an adult son. I can’t wear feathers or the latest, greatest leopard print. Not that I think there is anything wrong with being a cougar…I just don’t want to be stereotyped as one. Yes, my boyfriend is younger than me, but only by one year.
Most of my budget goes towards maintenance mode. That means I spend more than my fair share on face creams and masks. Speaking of budgets…
#2. I’m in budget mode
I want to be stylish, but no longer feel the need to re-work my wardrobe with the latest fashions each season. I don’t have the time or money for it. I’ve spent too much money trying overpriced items only to find they don’t work any better than some less expensive alternatives. I want to share them with you here.
#3. I’ve learned that beauty actually DOES come from within
That doesn’t mean I’m super wise and have the whole inner beauty thing down-pat, but I will be sharing stuff I learn along the way. There is actually an amazing site a friend discovered recently that I may be pulling some wisdom for: 40/20 Vision. That being said, sometimes feeling great about yourself also comes from helping the outside bits, too.
#4. This is a fun project for me
I actually run an awesome site called Buyosphere (with my lovely cofounders, Cass and Jerome), so my time is limited. I welcome guest posts and videos and will probably be posting sporadically. Hopefully I can help others while I share what I learn. Sometimes I’ll be off in left field.
All-in-all, I need to figure out exactly what I’m doing with this, but the plan is to produce content in the areas of:
- Health & Fitness
- Peace of mind
…all focused on this time of my life…approaching my 40’s and watching things change with my body, mind and lifestyle. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
