In the words of Oprah...
“So many women I’ve talked to see Menopause as a blessing. I’ve discovered that this is your movement to reinvent yourself after years of focusing on the needs of everyone else”
I’ve also heard this from Dr Christiane Northrop who writes on Women’s Wisdom
What’s your view on how to see Menopause? Talk about or just sort it out??
Menopause can be so personal but I think a shared view is always helpful 💚
Your skin sits on top of muscle - so it’s super important (to avoid sagging & deep lines) to look after your facial muscles as well as what’s on top 🤪
So how do you do that?
Well - as funny as it sounds - strength training helps your facial muscles as well as your body 💚
By training for your body - your face gets “exercise” & keeps its elasticity & structure - supporting your skin to lie nice & flat
As for weight training - as women over 40 - make sure you lift heavy weights. Don’t be scared of bulk & variety is the key 🌸💕
Yes - this is the term for using certain nutrients, in the right combo, to naturally help your body “switch ON” pathways that help your body #stayyoung - like when you were younger & cut your finger... it healed much quicker than it does NOW 🤪 .
As you get older (especially over 40yrs) your pathways “turn OFF” slowly - making you more tired, not sleep so well or regenerate fully.
This is one way to help your body stay stronger, sleep better, have more sustained energy & of course #lesslines

This is part of the "hidden" sides to looking after your skin - so it glows, looks youthful & AMAZING no matter what your age...
Want to know my 3 philosophies?
They are really simple - but simple doesn't always mean "easy" or that you will "do" them...
Just imaging if you really took these 3 philosophies on - ALL YEAR - how great could you look??
Even better - how amazing would you FEEL??!!#*!
Here they are:-
But what's the trick I hear you say?
- focus on NUTRIENTS not just calories in & calories out - that means you have to eat nourishing food for your body - like fuel...AND take extra's (like high quality Multi's & help your body activate it's own anti-oxidant powerhouse)
- purposefully every morning and night with abdominal breathing. This gets your body OUT of FIGHT & FLIGHT which keeps you from performing at your best, holds onto weight & also gives you more LINES
- Your body is meant to move...whatever that look like to you - but the older you get, the more you need to move to burn energy (unless you get super smart - talk to me below if this is you)
I'm covering HOW and WHEN you can fit this into your life (along with everything else on your plate) at the upcoming GET A GRIP OF THE GRIND FESTIVAL in Bright on Fri 28th Feb

Check out more from the speakers at Get a Grip of the Grind
Don’t really need to say more than that really...
Luckily damaged skin can be repaired - but there is work to be done - EVERY DAY

Well the tennis is over - so we can now get our #beautysleep .
Do you get really hooked into a game & cant go to bed til you see the end?
Had to capture this beautiful sunset... to what was probably the longest game of the tournament - Nadal v Thiem #greattennis .
Just remember to practice abdominal breathing before hopping into bed late - it helps stimulate the healing & rebalancing of the nervous system - especially needed after an exciting game of tennis 💚.

I truly believe that women can help other women rise up to be there best...
Sometimes in the hustle & bustle of work, family & LIFE - it’s easy to put yourself last...or even “on the sideline” til later...
Personal growth expands EVERYONE you come into contact with - not just YOU
& what I have found, is that - if you’re like me, your biggest priority is family & those you care about. So what you do...matters!
To BE more, you have to experience more, challenge yourself & get out of the “norm”
This weekend from Get A Grip of the Grind - truly gives the opportunity for you to expand to the next level, whatever that looks like for you - no judgement, no expectations, just a caring environment of professionals, like-minded women & YOU 💚

getagripofthegrind.com.au Get a Grip of the Grind is an antidote to contemporary life, offering women professional development in an adventurous setting.

I’m currently reviewing the way I get helpful info, latest research & anti-aging techniques, products, home care tips & basically anything that gives you a better quality of life - 💕 inside & out 💕
- out to you...
Or do you prefer podcast?
Let me know what’s the most useful way for you to get info that can help with all those pesky little questions you get about your skin, lines, hormones, food, supplements, sleep....& pretty much anything ageing 😊
Comment below 🙏
Eyes are the window to our souls (& happiness🌸)
And also usually the area that shows signs of age first ...
Apart from using eye cream BEFORE you apply your facial moisturiser - what can you do?
Here’s 3 things to check you are doing -
- LESS is BEST - meaning using a smaller amount of eye cream is better than more (approx 1/2 dehydrated pea size)
If you use too much eye cream - it can still swell the eye skin - expanding & stretching it - causing lines 😭
- wear wider sunglasses to protect more the skin even though wrap around a arent that cool 😎
- take your eye make up off GENTLY at the end of each night by soaking a cotton pad in Eye Make Up Remover; holding it over the eyes for 10sec (which melts mascara off - hold for longer if it’s waterproof mascara); then gently wipe downwards.
Use the other side to wipe back over & be sure not to RUB (just glide) 😇
PS Don’t use a milk or foaming cleanser over the eyes - it may leave a film over the eyes which is uncomfortable AND usually requires a lot of rubbing
Which equates to LINES 😞
Guess what my favourite Eye Cleanser is?
Make sure you use your eye cream morning AND night...
Because your eye skin is so delicate - it dehydrates quicker than the rest of your facial skin...PLUS - at night is when the repair & #antiageing takes place
Now that’s what you really want ah? Less lines...look healthy...glowing skin
#summerskin #eyesarethewindows #toyoursoul
This is one of the oils I use for my skin
Frankincense helps repair & boost skin renewal meaning healthier, glowing skin...especially as you get a little older 😁🤭
OR if you have noticed a few scales skin patches in your back or body.... you can use this neat - morning & night (only on the exact patch) & it helps remove
PS this is good for squamous cell spots
but NOT melanoma or basal cell carcinoma - PM me a picture if you’re not sure or ask your local skin specialist

Do you get sick of drinking water all the time but don’t want to add calories?
☀️Refreshing Iced Tea☀️
Had this drink this morning at the local cafe for a bit of a change...
Raspberries & Strawberries & a few blueberries with ??
Any guesses what would go with this?
They didn’t use soda water but you could...
It’s so important to get as much water in during the day from various sources (without too much extra sugar) so your skin doesn’t dry out, look sun weathered or dry & flakey 🥵
#hydrate #icedtea #betterskin
I’ve had a break from these & had one down at the Mount... it was devine & they are so simple
Use the basic recipe & add your favourites in the morning...
- 1Tbsp organic chia seeds
- 1 cup Almond (or other nut) milk
Mix together & refrigerate overnight
In the morning add your favourites -
- mine are blueberries, a sprinkle of bircher & chopped banana
What’s your favourite topping?
It’s a good time to try new ways of eating - lifestyle eating that gives you more energy, better sleep & a flat tummy 😍
What’s your new “thing” you are wanting to experiment with?
- Chia Puddings
- Açai Bowls
All of these are great for your skin 🌸🌸
What a daaaay ☀️😍🌴.
Bliss down at the Mount (Maunganui) for some R&R - so good for the soul. .
Nothing like a bit of sun kissed rays hitting the skin (with sunblock on of course) SPF15 .
So what are you? Beach gal/guy for relaxation or other?
#beachbum #rest #regenerate
Tiki touring around the countryside today on our bikes & then in the car.
Great day for some fresh air & sunshine ☀️
So good for the soul (& skin) to spend time with friends, fresh air & having lots of laughs 🤭
What have you done today?
It’s not too late...Xmas or New Year!! .
This is a new decade so it’s the perfect time to start how you mean to go on 👏💪.
Comment below with your biggest skin concern or what you worry most about with your skin & I’ll give you my best advise 💚
#skinsecrets #skinguru #skinsolutions
Back in NZ & I already feel like I may need a smoothie a day to keep the jeans 🤪
Too much eating, celebrating & enjoying family food tends to turn into a few extra cm’s around the middle...
& as I get older - each year - it’s harder to move 😂🤪
So a combo of Liver Tonic supp’s, extra fish oils (better for your metabolism) & some extra greens per day are now on the plan 👍
Best way to stay young - especially if you’re out in the sun and exercising... is to exfoliate 🥵😎
Thought of, usually for younger skins - to get rid of pimples & break-outs BUT is great for breaking down the bonds that stick your skin ON to your face - which need to come off quicker as you get older ....
Enzyme Exfoliates help by gently getting rid of excessive sunblock ingredients, SWEAT, & pollution that sticks onto your skin when it’s HOT .
Use in the shower, scrub gently for 2 mins, then leave on while you wash everywhere else 😊 - giving the enzymes extra time to work...
Then rinse off with water - VOILA - a more hydrated & glowing skin (after moisturising) so you keep looking great for your age 💚
#lookyounger #antiageing #nosweat
✨NEW YEARS EVE PREP✨
The trick is to think ahead...
- dry brush or loofah
- body moisturise liberally 2 days out
- self tan 1 day before
- nails done ✅
- conditioning treatment on hair - 2 days out
- hydrate 💧
- eat plenty of greens the day before & take your vitamins (helps with dehydration & hangovers 😜
- face mask night before - leave on overnight
Back out running with this crew - so nice to be at Lysterfield for some R&R

Making sure Xmas Lunch was run off so there’s room for more 🤪
With the Xmas pud feeling like it’s spread around your middle...
It could be time for one of these 😂😁
Don’t forget your “skin glow” with a green smoothie 💚
& a good flush of excess toxins with extra fiber 😉
Merry Christmas & wishing you every joy for the holiday season as you farewell one decade & look forward with excitement to the next...
There are lots of changes coming for my family & the business...
Starting with a change in location (for a short period) ready for a bigger, more expansive move🦋

Get your last minute Xmas gifts in store today!
A few little Gift Packs left which are super cute✨
Lots of stocking fillers 👏
Rashes, lumps & unexpected bumps can come up “out of nowhere” this time of year...
What I have found - is the build up of stress (cortisol) in the body builds up more with the crazy pace of “getting things done” before you finish work, go on holiday, see rele’s you’d rather not...
PLUS the extra alcohol, cheese & crackers, dips & chips...etc,etc
That seem to pass your lips in so called “season on frivolity” can add to the irritation
So to help your skin (& gut) -
1. B R E A T H E - tummy breathing
2. Make sure you get at least 5 (if not 10)mins to YOURSELF to recalibrate
3. Use a soothing AntiOxidant Booster to calm the irritation, hydrate gently & strengthen your poor skin
My favourite is the Intraceuticals AntiOxidant Booster - available in-store for $49
Rash be gone! ✨
Last day to get your orders in for Xmas deliveries...
Last thing you need is NO SKINCARE over the Xmas break 😝😩🥵

PM me if you would like to get an order in time 💚
Going to get a spray tan for the big day?
Xmas Day that is...
Solaire Spray Tan Solutions has bagged the ‘Best Spray Tan Brand’ at the 2019 Luxlife Awards, beating out dozens of competitors.
Citing an impressive list of tanning-industry innovations – including the use of true bases and its flawless and faultless results
– Solaire cemented its place as the premier spray tan manufacturer in the country.
So there you have it. Sorry I don’t do this but find your local one nearby 💚
Over the next free months with the sun & heat - remember to keep an extra sunblock in your handbag 👜 for re-applying during the day
And use an AntiOxidant or Vitamin C repair Booster at night to heal the damage from UV & infared heat (from the car)
- under your night cream 🌟☀️🎄🏖
🌟Just over 2weeks til Xmas 🌟
Have you got all your gifts sorted?
If so - why not treat yourself to an Oxygen Facial to look totally calm, refreshed & stunning for those last minute social engagements
(That would normally make you feel frazzled, harried & lack lustre) 😩
Book in now. Next week there are a few spots left 🦋
Sleep is like medicine - especially for stress levels & saggy skin! Ha!
You’ve heard of Beauty Sleep?
It’s actually a real thing!!
The body can naturally heal & help itself repair & slow down inflammation & premature ageing if it is in an Alpha state by 1am when your growth hormone releases & goes to work.
This also helps cortisol levels go down. Allowing you to feel more rested when you wake up 😊
But here’s the kicker...
...you need to be asleep by 10.30pm
So off you go...
...to bed 😁😍🦋
Some Xmas stocking filler ideas...
