3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

3 Beauty Products for Women Over 40

Today I wanted to share 3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40, I’m using and why I like them. All of these products, I received as samples in my Birchbox over the last year. I tried them, loved them, and then ordered them. (Of course you don’t have to be over 40 to use them but they are good for our age.)

These are old news, but I still love my beauty blender. I have an expensive foundation brush, but I always go back to my beauty blender.

It blends your foundation into your skin in a perfect amount giving you a flawless finish. For maturing skin this is important!

You wet and wring the egg shaped applicator out (I didn’t do this when I used it the first time and then I read the directions) then use a small stippling motion to apply your foundation.

This product I received in my January Birchbox. I have used other brands of dry shampoo and didn’t like them. I tried Klorane and loved it.

I use a lot of product in my hair so I usually wash it everyday. But with this dry shampoo, I can skip days.

  • It cleans hair without water in 2 minutes.
  • Extends life between shampoos.
  • Ideal for on-the-go
  • Adds volume and texture
  • Received Allure’s Best of Beauty Award

I was told last year to use Benefit’s POREfessional under my eyes to help fill in wrinkles. I tried it and I loved the way it felt on my skin.

I recently realized you can use this as an all over primer for your face before applying makeup. I have to admit, I’m a little addicted to this stuff.

It feels amazing on my skin. I use it as an eye and face primer. The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish.

Okay, so these are some products I’m using right now and loving!

I’m looking ahead to March and working on some posts. Is there anything you would like for me to write about? I love to hear from you!

Beauty For the Heart~~I’ve shared with you all recently that I’m studying Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby. It’s such a great study.

This week I’ve been reminded that God loves us deeply and profoundly. He loves us and has given us guidelines for living so we will not miss the full dimensions of the love relationship.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.” 1 John 5:3

Have a blessed day!

Skin Care Products That Really Work

This is one of those hot off the press posts! This morning on The Today Show there was a segment from Good Housekeeping about the best anti-aging skin care products.

So in case you missed it, here are some of my favorites!

Skin Care Products That Really Work

This was the gold winner for day cream moisturizer, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair. It has a 30 SPF, Yay! The best thing it’s only around $21!

Skin Care Products That Really Work

Boots No. 7 Lift & Luminate Night Cream was the gold winner for night creams. Again the price is great, around $21.

Skin Care Products That Really Work

Lastly, I would love to try this eye cream, Avene Retrinal Eyes. It has to be bought through a physicians office so I’m going to check with my dermatologist. It’s around $44 which is less than the eye cream I’m using now. This eye cream was the silver winner (the gold one was $260, which is out of my price range).

Skin Care Products That Really Work

Well, I just wanted to share this with ya’ll. If you’re like me, you’re always looking for good skin care that will slow down the aging process. Sometimes I think I wake up with a new wrinkle every day!

Have you tried any of these products? Don’t you love good products that don’t cost a fortune?

What I Wore-My Style

Happy Hump Day! If you’re new around here, Wednesday’s are when I share outfits I’ve worn over the last week. There are lots of 20 something girls sharing what they’ve worn so I thought it would be fun to show what someone over 40 wears. You can be stylish after 40! :-)

You’ll remember last week, I shared this picture of the lovely Stitch Fix ladies styling me for the Haven Conference.

Stitch Fix Ladies

Well, these are the outfits I wore. We had a reception on Thursday night so I wore a colorblocked dress by 41Hawthorn. I loved it and it was perfect for the reception!

Blue & Black dress

This picture was taken by the photographer that recently took some pictures of me, but I did wear this to one of the events at Haven. I love the colors in this sleeveless top.

White pants

I apologize for the poor quality of this picture but I took this with my iphone, I wore this outfit on the first day of the conference.  This is a red silk blouse by Daniel Rainn. I paired it with my INC skinny jeans from Macy’s and a pair of leopard flats. I also have on a green and blue necklace from Stitch Fix.

Lastly, I wore this floral print blazer with a pair of boot cut jeans from Kut from the Kloth.

This sweet lady standing next to me is Geralin Thomas. She’s absolutely gorgeous and was kind enough to say she had read my blog.

Geralin is a professional organizer and the owner of Metropolitan Organizing, LLC . If she looks familiar, maybe you’ve seen her on Hoarders or The Nate Berkus Show.

I had so much fun at the Haven Conference. I’m still recovering from being gone for 4 days!

Which of these outfits were your favorite? I liked them all but the colorblocked dress was my favorite!

How To Wear The Ankle Boot


Last week on my Tie It Together Thursday picture, I showed this picture with black ankle boots. Krista, who sent the picture of the dress, had mentioned wearing ankle boots with it in the fall.

Several of you asked about the ankle boots. How do you wear them? Do you wear tights, what color, etc.

How to Wear the ankle boot

I’m not sure I would wear boots with this dress. If I did wear ankle boots, I would wear black tights but I would have to try this on to make sure it looked right.

I decided to do some researching and thinking about how to wear the ankle boot. It looks like they’ll be popular again this fall/winter season.

Let remind you, just because it’s in style doesn’t mean we have to wear it. Not everyone looks good in ankle boots.

Here are some things to consider:

~~Ankle boots cut your legs off at the ankle so if you have short legs, it will make them look shorter.

~~Try to wear an ankle boot that is close to your skin color to avoid them cutting off your legs.

~~Ankle boots accentuate the ankle, so if you have large ankles, you may not want to wear them with a dress.

~~Ankle boots look great with skinny jeans.

I found some pictures with ankle boots that I liked. These are great examples of how to wear the ankle boot.

Now, here’s the question. Can women over 40 wear ankle boots? The answer is yes! We can wear them but make sure they look appropriate with the outfit you’re wearing.

I usually ask myself, “Does this look classy or trashy?” Of course if it’s trashy stay clear of it! :-)

So what do you think of the ankle boot? Do you wear them, do you like them? Let me know!

Beauty For the Heart~~I recently found a book of my Mom’s called HOPE, pure and simple by Max Lucado. It has so many good quotes and that’s what I’ve been using for my Beauty For the Heart. I hope you like them!

“God hasn’t given up on you. He hasn’t turned away. He believes in you.” -Max Lucado. I’m so thankful God hasn’t given up on me!! I’m still a work in progress.

Have a blessed day!

Stitch Fix Box #4

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my latest Stitch Fix box with you. I feel like the Stitch Fix team have become my new best friends. They have certainly helped me add some different pieces to my wardrobe.

I love dresses and this box had 2 dresses in it. This first one is a Leroy Dot Print dress. It’s a fun print and I can’t wait to wear it!

Stitch Fix Box #4
This is a Ronda Floral Print Knit Dress. When I first saw this one I was leery if it would work. But after I tried it on, I liked it too!

Stitch Fix Box #4
I shared this Ohara Square Print Zip-up Cardigan with you last week on my What I Wore post. I will get lots of wear out of this cardigan.

Stitch Fix Box #4

They popped this sleeveless printed top in my box and I love it. It’s great for warm days!

Stitch Fix Box #4

Lastly, they added this delicate gold necklace. I usually wear chunky necklaces so I thought this would be a good addition to my jewelry collection.

Stitch Fix Box #4

I’ve shared this before, but I love how they include these plastic cards with each item of clothing. It gives you ideas of how to wear them.

Stitch Fix Box #4
This was the first box that I kept everything (I did have some credit thanks to you all!) and I’ve already wore three of the items. I wore the black & white cardigan last week and I’ll be sharing two more with you tomorrow on my What I Wore post.

It’s so much fun to get a Stitch Fix box! Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I can’t begin to tell you how sad I am over the news in Boston. These evil acts are almost more than I can bare. I do know this, that as loving as God is, He is also a very just God and those who do these kinds of evil will be punished.

Proverbs 11:21 says, “Be sure of this: The wicked will not go unpunished,but those who are righteous will go free.”

Prayers for Boston!

5 Beauty Tips To Get Us Ready For Spring!

Although the weather has not started showing signs of spring here, I know warmer weather is right around the corner. So today I’m sharing 5 Beauty Tips To Get Us Ready For Spring.

5 Beauty Tips To Get Us Ready For Spring

1. Exfoliate-After a long, cold winter my body needs lots of exfoliating. I have a wonderful homemade exfoliant I’ve been using that a friend gave me. I’ll share the recipe with you soon.

2. Moisturize and hydrate-Do you suffer from dry skin? My hands, elbows, knees etc. need extra moisturizing this time of the year. I’m also trying to drink lots of water to help my skin look it’s best.

I’ve been using St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin as a body lotion and I really like it.

5 Beauty Tips To Get us ready for Spring!

3. Get a pedicure-Sandal weather will be here soon and nothing looks worse than putting them on with cracked heels and chipped polish. Now is the time to get those toes and feet looking good whether you have a pedicure or do your own.

4. Use a self-tanner-I’m not a fan of tanning beds and although I do love to get out in the sun, I limit my sun exposure. Self tanners are perfect for sundresses and shorts weather.

I’m using SUN LABORATORIES Self Tanning Lotion Tan Overnight – Medium

5 Beauty Tips To Get Us Ready For Spring!

5. Lighten up your makeup-One of the trends this spring is a more natural look so put away heavy foundations, dark lipsticks (women over 40 shouldn’t be wearing dark lipsticks anyway) and opt for lighter look. BB creams are still popular and I’m on the hunt for a  good one.

These are my 5 beauty tips to get us ready for spring, what do you do to prepare for spring weather? 

Beauty For the Heart~~I read this last week and thought it was true, “Christians need to guard constantly against the tendancy toward complacency and indifference about our relationship with God.” We always need to strive to be more like Christ!

Have a blessed day!
