AGING GRACEFULLY - MAKEUP ROUTINE

AGING GRACEFULLY - MAKEUP ROUTINE

My focus has always been on skincare, not makeup. I always used some makeup but didn't really know how to apply it until I was on maternity leave and spent a lot of time on youtube while breastfeeding or pumping in the middle of the night. Two of my favorite youtube stars are (of course) Michelle Phan and Lindy of Bubzbeauty.

AGING GRACEFULLY - BEAUTY SLEEP

AGING GRACEFULLY - BEAUTY SLEEP

You all heard the term before "beauty sleep" but how many of you actually embrace it? I honestly would love to sleep the hours a baby or toddler does. I love sleeping and it has been one of my most guarded things that I do. I can give up on chips and bacon, internet, and even Netflix for some solid hours of sleep.

AGING GRACEFULLY - MULTI-TASK PRODUCTS FOR BUSY MOMS

AGING GRACEFULLY - MULTI-TASK PRODUCTS FOR BUSY MOMS

I have always been a multi-tasker but after I became a mom, I really had to kick this multi-tasking thing in high gear! I realized I now have less time in general and most of it was used on someone that needs a lot of attention and assistance with every aspect of her life. A couple of times, I ran out to run errands with Grace and she got a lot of complements on how cute she looked in her outfit. I didn’t get any because I looked like crap. I had 25 minutes to get out the door and 20 of it was used on her.

AGING GRACEFULLY - SKINCARE DURING THE HOLIDAYS

With the holidays upon us, going to a couple of parties is inevitable. Regardless of the party you throw or attend, there are some similar things that will happen to all of us:

  • We will get less sleep (unless you can make it up the next day);

  • We will look a little haggard; and

  • We will be too tired to follow our usual skincare routine.

AGING GRACEFULLY - ANTI-AGING ROUTINE

When I tell people about my fears of aging, they usually respond with "Oh, you have nothing to worry about, you are Asian and you will still look young when you get old." Flattering, Somewhat. But let's not just sit back and rely on my Asian genes.

AGING GRACEFULLY - LYMPHATIC FACE MASSAGE

AGING GRACEFULLY - LYMPHATIC FACE MASSAGE

So, this is something else I do that when I tell people, they look at me like I have five heads. (People usually look at me like I have three heads already,) One friend even said to me: I know Kate Moss swears by this for an instant face lift but I didn't think real people do it. Her comment made me question my "realness."

AGING GRACEFULLY - DAILY SKINCARE ROUTINE

I love keeping things out of sight. Visual clutter annoys me to no end. Although my daughter is only 18 months old, she has acquired a lot of things, she might even have more things than me. In my quest to hide things and yet still have a craft project for her, I found an awesome wooden box for $3.00 at the dollar store. Pretty sweet deal to have a storage solution and not yet ANOTHER piece of paper covered in paint.

WHAT'S NEW AT WISHAHMON - SEPTEMBER 2016

WHAT'S NEW AT WISHAHMON - SEPTEMBER 2016

At a very young age, I thought I was fat and ugly. When I told my mom in tears, she helped me with various diets and told me that I was pretty. (Of course she did, she was my mom!) She also said it is important to maintain good skin because if you have good skin, you will naturally look pretty. I never really got pass the "feeling ugly" part but I have continued to take care of my skin.
