Ageless, Vivacious & Effortlessly ME!

In nineteen hours, thirty minutes and some random number of seconds I will be a year older (in my very early thirties) and I am okay with that. While some dames dash over to their nearest cosmetic surgeon to get pumped, filled and drilled to hold on to their youth; I on the other hand  will pass on the selective surgeries, procedures, fillers and all that jazz. I have taken the natural approach to my ageless journey into brilliance (that's how I'm looking at it mon petites!) with a balance of fitness, healthy eating and treating my mind, body and soul with the TLC it deserves - I will be the the best me... effortlessly! 

As I get older I have noticed slight differences with my skin, overall body and especially my hair and with each change I have altered my lifestyle to ensure that I remain as flawless as possible! This mon petites, is no easy feat but the rewards are invaluable.

Ever wonder how those insanely haute glamazions stay in shape? We've done extensive research to find out what these mythical creatures do for exercise (get up & move!), what they wear to work up a sweat (clothes!), and how they reward themselves after a job well done (even more clothes!). What was prevalent with everyone from Serena Williams, Beyonce to Irina Shayk is the magnificent elixir H2O.  There is a plethora of benefits from this natural resource like hydrating the body, maintaining the balance of bodily fluids,  assists those looking to shed pounds, energizes muscles, main factor in keeping one's skin looking phenomenal,  supports Kidney health,  and sustains normal bowel function - just to name a few.  How do I incorporate this drink into my lifestyle? I make sure I drink water non-stop from chilled glasses adorned with sliced fruits (like the picture above) to schlepping water bottles wherever I go ensures I stay hydrated 24/7. Since committing to a daily intake of water - I have noticed changes in my skin and yes even my bowel movements (TMI - but it really does work). Instead of sugary libations that will compromise your waist sip on H2your physique  will thank you for it!

Want to hear a secret? As much as you may spin, crossfit or train until your glutes salute the masses it won't make a difference unless you have a proper diet filled with nutrients,  antioxidant-enriched fruits and vegetables as well as little to no processed foods. A proper, life-giving diet has been a challenge for me but the return has been vital to my overall well-being and I am proud to state I have lost a resounding 24lbs since cleaning up my act. It's still a challenge but I like myself when I eat clean - trust me mon petites, you will love the new you too!

For me the first place I noticed signs of aging was my hair. For some reason my locks were extremely dry, brittle and can you keep a secret? I found a few stray gray hairs! I have to be completely honest and say I was devastated but I soon realized that those gray hairs was a reward for being able to live this long and to strive to live the most optimal life possible. With my hair in this new phase I needed to overhaul my current regime and utilize products that addressed these issues and mon peties, I found it!  Despite my allegiance to my favorite hair products, I was intrigued with the anti-aging promise in the  NeXXus Youth Renewal    line of shampoos, conditioners and—of course—leave in treatments.

It's heaven sent and you will notice the difference after just one use. My overly dry, brittle and dehydrated locks is a thing of the past since I began using NeXXus Youth Renewal  - it's worth every penny.
