Never Grow Up, Well Your Face Anyway!

Never Grow Up Face Creme.jpg

What is there to love about Never Grow Up Hydrating Face Creme? Let me tell you why I like it and what’s in it.

Never Grow Up is made up of a hydrating blend of coconut water, shea butter and olive oil (a beauty secret known about by Italian women for years).

That is the base. Into this lovely, nourishing skin creme is added tons of botanical extracts and vitamins that benefit your skin and are anti-aging, brightening and evening of skin tone.
There are no fillers, no petroleum, and no parabens. You won’t find these in Posh products.

This cream has a light natural coconut and vanilla scent! It is a delicious treat for your face, and is part of the Look Natural line! There is also a Never Grow Up Serum!

Here’s to a lovely Monday!

Self Care Saturdays!

self care saturday

It’s Self Care Saturday!
This morning I woke up and did an energizing yoga flow while masking! Yup multi-tasking again! I also start every day with a large glass of water. I love getting on my mat, because it loosens me up, makes me feel good in my body, and boosts my energy!
Some of you know I’ve had a very painful shoulder injury for the last year and a half that is finally improving, but I’m still very careful with what I do with my right shoulder so I don’t re-injure it, which I’ve done twice! 


I love my breakfast of a highly nourishing smoothie and a matcha green tea latte I make myself. Smoothies for breakfast are my thing, because I can pack so much nutrition into them.! (See my recipe index under smoothies for some recipes) I’m a big eater, so I make a big smoothie. 🥑🍒🥝🥕🍓

Benefits of Oranges and Get Some Egg On Your Face! Healthy Food Tips and Natural Skin Care!

orange benefits

Did you know the smell of orange can reduce stress by up to 70%? You know that smell when you first start peeling an orange and you get that burst of citrus? Oooo, that smells oh so good!!! 😃
There are many benefits to eating oranges. We all know about the Vitamin C. But, oranges are also rich in fiber (17% of your daily allowance is in one large orange), and they can also improve heart health. Studies have also shown that the flavonoids may preserve brain health. Oranges enhance immunity, digestion, and skin health! They are full of other micronutrients too, like folate, potassium, and thiamine, and it’s no secret that the antioxidants in oranges in skin care has pretty impressive results like anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, UV protection, and decreasing age spots! Ask me which Posh products have loads of orange in them!

Oranges are low in calories, but you won’t get the same benefits by drinking orange juice. The fiber in the whole orange slows down absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, so make sure you go for the whole orange. 🍊

I’m really enjoying how this new Egg On Your Face with Korean skin care technology cleanser is making my skin look and feel!!! Awesome!!!! 👍🌺🌈
It is a very nourishing cleanser that is great for sensitive skin and formulated for all skin types.
This is a Wonderful Winter cleanser that gently washes away toxins, makeup, dirt, and excess oil while it adds Poshbiotics to your face! What is that???? 🤔 Well, Poshbiotics is a proprietary blend by Perfectly Posh of pre and probiotics, milk and eggs that soothes, smoothes, and balances pH. I’ve noticed more even skin tone and a softer smoother complexion. It comes in a nice 4 oz. tube and smells very lovely!!! It’s a top notch way to pamper your face! 🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️

Healthy Holiday Tips to Avoid Weight Gain and if you have Food Sensitivities

How to Have a Healthier Holiday with Packing on the Pounds

Most of us have to be mindful during the holidays of what we eat to avoid weight gain and also digestive upset. Ugghh, who wants that?

Above are some tips for avoiding the fallout of the holiday celebrations on your health and still enjoy the festivities. Of course if you are having dessert and are allergic or sensitive to something in the dessert, don’t eat it. That is where it is a good idea to bring your own to share.  If you are lucky enough to get a thoughtful hostess who asks about food sensitivities, that is always a bonus!

Also, you can completely change your focus! Yes, there is a lot of emphasis on food, but it really does make a difference if you set an intention. For instance, “I intend to really enjoy the time I get to spend with my friends or family talking and catching up.” Put your focus more on the activities other than food that are happening at your party or get together.

Taking or preparing a dish or two of your own, or a healthier treat, will also keep you on track and keep you from feeling deprived or left out.

Don’t forget to stay hydrated. This is important in colder months. It keeps your mucus membranes hydrated, your skin, organs, and sometimes we mistake thirst for hunger. Not drinking enough water can also contribute to constipation.

Going for a brisk walk with your pet, friend or family member helps digestion, is energizing, burns calories, is great for circulation and your metabolism, and you benefit from fresh air!

If you have food sensitivities, you will be very happy that you resisted and came prepared, because the next day, you will feel good. When the holidays are over and you still have energy, can fit into your clothes, and don’t have to try to lose the holiday gain, you will be very thankful.

How Do I Increase My Enthusiasm and Creativity?

Enthusiasm and Creativity

If your creativity is at an all time low and you find all you are doing is going from one task, chore, item on your to do list to another……you know, going through the motions, because your day is all mapped out for you? Or, if you spend every spare moment of your day scrolling through social media, maybe you need a little boredom in your life!

The happiest times in people’s lives are when they have plans, dreams and are inspired! You don’t have time to think about these things when your day is jam packed and you fill every spare moment you have by grabbing your phone. I’m talking about when you are waiting in line, waiting to be called for an appointment, eating, walking, you know any spare moment? It isn’t refreshing, and it can be exhausting and draining to fill your brain with what other people are posting. That’s because our minds need time to do nothing! This actually frees up space to plan, dream and create. You should have at least one dream right now or goal you want to achieve. At all times, you should have one dream for your future.

creativity and inspiration

If you want to increase your creativity, you need head space for that. I know when I land on a new creative idea it gives me a huge surge of enthusiasm, energy and joy, and I can’t wait to get started! My most creative times are when I have had some free time, without an agenda, to get rid of mental clutter. Be deliberate about having time inside your own head.

When you are so busy all day every day, and you don’t have time to sit with your thoughts, your mind is like a fragmented computer. Distractions are the antithesis of creativity. If you can think back to a time when you were on fire with ideas, plans and enthusiasm, you can be sure you had time to just be. Working out, walking, or going for a jog without distractions is also a good way to boost creativity according to a recent study in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.

If you take the time to surround yourself with a little quiet time, whether you are moving your body or sitting still, you will increase your enthusiasm and creativity, and this will increase your level of happiness. We were meant to create.

How do you increase your enthusiasm and creativity?
