2015 is as good a year as any to reboot a few things in my life. first on my list is getting my fanny back in the gym. in the past when i was a stay-at-home mom i always made time in my schedule for spin class, pilates, yoga, zumba…but since i have returned to the workforce for whatever reason my exercise regime has become non-existent. not good for my body and not good for my soul. my weight has decided to redistribute in areas that i’m far from happy with, and i feel a bit sluggish at times.the thing i miss most about regularly exercising is the mental boost that comes along with it. it’s all about maintenance at my age, and i’ve dropped the ball as far as my health goes. stay tuned as i think i found a solution that will fit beautifully into my life and give our new pup oscar lots of exercise as well. second on my list for the new year is a skincare and makeup tuneup. for certain, i will be tripling my water intake as my skin is becoming dry and is prone to breakouts. (yes, even at 56 those pesky pimples can still pop up from time-to-time.) and i need to find a good facialist. as for my makeup, today i had the pleasure of visiting my friend robert williams who is a makeup consultant at bloomingdales. he exfoliated my skin, gently cleansed, moisturized, then skillfully applied my make-up that is showcased in today’s ootd. robert started with a sheer foundation by laura mercier, gave me a smoky eye courtesy of chanel, lined my lips and added a dollop of lipgloss also by chanel, and brushed my brows with ysl. he also contoured my cheeks and lightly brushed my cheeks with blush by dior. i was thrilled with the results. what do you think? it’s so important to consult with experts in the field from time-to-time to stay fresh and on trend. and i have to say i felt like a million bucks when i left the store this afternoon. now all i have to do is remember robert’s tutorial tomorrow morning…the skin care products used today are by ReVive.
