Facing Reality

24 Jan

“Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one”


What in the world is going on with my skin lately?  I am usually the first one to jump in front of a camera to have my picture taken, but lately upon reviewing these unattractive photos,  it seems that reality has slapped me right in the face, Ouch!

Who is that woman in those dreadful photos? That’s not me! That’s a puffy eyed middle-aged chick with baby crow’s feet.

It’s these recent photos that have sent me sprinting to the nearest drugstore for a miracle cure.

Well, I can confirm that there isn’t any shortage of serums, eye creams and wrinkle reducers to choose from, so apparently I’m not the only vain person on the planet… that’s good. I don’t feel so terribly shallow now.

So here’s what ended up in my cart:

L’oreal Revitalift Complete Anti Wrinkle and Firming Moisturizer

Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-aging Serum

ROC Complete Lift Night cream

Will it work, will I be lifted or firmed, or will I continue on my journey to becoming the crypt keeper? I will let you know.

Do you have a miracle cure?   If so, I would love to know about it!

    “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

    In this beholder’s opinion…

    No creams or magic potions needed

    When Carter was not quite 3, she asked me why I have cracks in my forehead. But, honestly, while I’m not a huge fan of my forehead cracks, they do remind me of the funny things she says…and that I have little control of that darn sarcastic left eyebrow arch!!!

      Well said! You can find “beauty” in every stage of life, if you embrace it:)
