This Grandma is Loving Her Vitamin C!

Avon Vitamin C For a Flawless Face

Just a short blog post on how this grandma is loving her Vitamin C…Well
Recently, I’ve gotten many compliments on how flawless my skin looks! Well, the secret is out. In truth, it’s the Avon Vitamin C Serum I’ve been using. 😉

This has been my favorite (go to) beauty product (NOW Going on) 2 months! 🙂

I’ve tried Avon Vitamin C in the past when I first started selling Avon, and I really didn’t give it a fair shot. I used it a couple of times and it got shoved back with a few other products that I was just not into at the moment.


Hmmm, little did I know that I was truly missing out on some fabulous, glowing skin all those months back when I first signed up with Avon.

Until Now…

I honestly cannot believe how little makeup I have to use to get the look I’ve been looking for, (for quite awhile now). The Vitamin C is basically all the skin care I’ve been using except my cleanser and night cream.


The videos I’ve been filming do not lie. I don’t use filters when I’m filming. The tablet I use to do my vidoes has (1) preference setting. Beauty ON…Beauty OFF. I can’t tell the difference; as I’ve filmed with it off many times. If you look at all the ones where I show my face (before) I do my makeup, that will tell you.


I Will Be Using Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum for, (let’s just say) AWHILE! lol 😉

Grandparenting Tips and a Wish List From The Heart (Future)

As I sit here at my desk…11:50 AM after, drinking my coffee, paying some bills, doing 3 loads of laundry, and a few other chores for the day, I began to think about my grandchildren; as I often do. <3 <3

I began to contemplate ahead to their future. As for grandparenting tips, I certainly think it’s my duty as a grandmother to think about these things, very carefully. <3

This thinking pattern had me dwelling about prom, high school, dating, arguments with Mom and Dad, romantic summers and makeup for my granddaughter, girl problems for my grandson, career decisions, car purchases, iPhones, relationships, marriage, bullying,…well, I think you got all those pictures swarming in your heads.??

At least, I hope! lol


So, what did all this brainstorming about the (particular) contents above accomplish? What about that (wish list)? And furthermore, those tips??

Well, let’s back up just a bit… Let me tell you something! =)

BOTH my grandkids are as smart as tacks beyond their years!

I strongly believe that (they) are quite secured with powerful wills and fearless spirits.

I also believe that they have spent their share of time thinking about their future and what they will be doing as adults; especially my sweet grandson. My grands are 8 and 5, and growing way too FAST!!! 🙁

Considering (career decisions), I’ve heard my oldest grandchild say, “I want to be a (crop farmer)” and my youngest one say, “I want to be a (vet)”

Both of those choices have a colossal of possibilities, and even MORE aspiring choices in relation to those fields.

Grandma isn’t worried in the least, because she knows they will be good at anything they decide as careers.

However, their choices could change, and change again, and YET, again before they commit! My grandchildren could even spread their wings and explore multiple advancements. They are young and have quite a long time to consider the variables.

Now, getting back to that “wish list” before I lose my train of thought here…

Well, my thoughts are all over the place!! Having said that; it is NOT my intention to make this post essentially on (career picks). 😉

This leads me to consider my health more and more. Yes, Grandma certainly needs to be, and stay healthy in order to be around when all these things take place for sure!!!

So, what’s a wish list have to do with all this?

My wish list is the assorted things that I want to be able to talk about with my grandchildren.

More to the point; I want (them) to WANT to talk about those things (with me). To share tips with them, my thoughts, and my advice.

Important Note: I do realize that I’m not an expert when it comes to grandparenting tips. 😉

*** ~~ While this is ultra important to me; I also realize it may be too tall of an order to become a reality.

In addition, Their parents NEED to be present and have their opinions, their thoughts, their own tips and advice known when discussing those important topics.

All these elements will mold these (2) little people into responsible adults in tomorrow’s society…(whatever that may be). LOL ~~ With how things are going in this world today; it’s hard telling what our society will be like. 😉

Personally, I hope Jesus comes back by then…seriously.

I still have a wish list regardless. My grandkids could talk with me, AND Mom and Dad also!

The Updated List Consists Of: (I want my grands to seek advice, and tips about the following subjects from me).

1) Makeup and skin care advice: My Granddaughter

Well…of course, this would be on top of the list! LOL <3 While, I sure hope she goes to her mom for beauty advice as well. Her Momma is beautiful BTW! <3

2) Girl problems: My Grandson

Now, I can already see him going to his dad for advice about this; that’s for sure! However, I do hope that he will come to me for a tip or two. 🙂

3) Prom: My Granddaughter

I would LOVE to get the chance to make her dress. I used to sew A LOT!! I even made my dress for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary party. I still don’t know what happened to that dress! 🙁

4) Bullying: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter

I’m not the bullying expert at all!! However, since I’ve been through it myself, I do hope I get the chance to give some advice…(if the need arises). I certainly hope it doesnt! <3<3

5) Career advice: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter

I do hope they both have their decisions made way ahead of time. With (most) kids, they end up changing their minds a dozen times; and that’s ok. That is the norm. With that being said; I would be ecstatic if they would pop their heads in the house and seek a little advice!

6) Grandchildren: Both My Grandson and Granddaughter

I certainly hope I get the chance to lend some tips and advice along the way. More IMPORTANTLY; <3 I hope I’m still living when my great grandchildren are born. <3

A Grandmother Can Dream Can’t She?!

5 Important Tips For Grandmothers Aging Gracefully

There is no way to get out of aging. We begin aging the instant we are born. All of our muscles, bones, skin cells and brain cells begin to age the very day we are born. When most women get into their 30’s and 40’s, is when they start thinking of ways to turn back the clock. Of course technically, there is no way of turning our aging clock back. Although how we wish we could…especially Grandmothers!

However, there are things us Grandmothers can do to help our bodies and minds age more gracefully. And along with this, we start to feel amazingly younger, stronger and yes; more beautiful! 🙂

Below Are 5 Helpful Tips For Grandmothers Aging Gracefully

* Exercise – I can’t think of anything that exercise isn’t good for. However for Grandmothers; it’s especially good for muscles, brain activity and arthritis.

* Stay Hydrated – Drinking at least 5 to 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water per day aids a plethora of organs in our bodies, along with hair, skin, bones and nails. It also helps to maintain healthy bladders and digestive tracts. This is especially true for the elderly. And this of course means Grandmothers.

* Diet And Supplements – It would be best to get all of our vitamins and minerals through our diets, however there are some people that just don’t like a particular food group. So then we chose supplements to get the nutrients we need. If you take medication, it is best to check with your doctor before starting any vitamin supplements. That way you are more inclined to not have any surprises. If you have any doubts, it’s always best to check with a doctor. As we age, our bodies need more nutrients and minerals.

* Mind Activity – There are so many things that Grandmothers can do to keep their mind active. Of course the best activity is spending time with the grandchildren. Playing various light sports with them and joining in on other activities is beneficial for both Grandma and Grandchild.

However there are other things a grandma can do to keep her mind sharp and active. Word Find, jigsaw puzzles and board games are just a few to list. Walking outdoors is also beneficial. To get the full benefit of walking, you need to pay attention to all the sights and smells that surround you while on your walk. This also helps clear the mind and thus, further sharpens it. And you know what they say, an active and healthy mind is a young mind.

* Healthy Skin Care – As we age, the skin gets very thin and is more inclined to dry out, especially if we don’t use a good moisturizer after bathing or showering. There is nothing worse than spending a long time in a bathtub and afterwards not following up with moisturizing. Of course it’s even worse in the winter time.

Taking a shower is best for an aging grandmother, and you can’t ever be too moisturized. It’s best to invest in some good body and face lotion. Gold Bond is excellent for this. Gentle cleansers is recommended for the elderly, and cleansing is so very important in order to have healthy skin. Also generous doses of vitamin E is ideal to help keep skin healthy.

Also remember elderly skin is more prone to problem skin such as eczema and rosacea. And that’s just mentioning two symptoms of problem skin. There are many more.

Spring and Summer Skin Care Tips and Suggestions




Skin care usually gets top priority throughout the winter months; as skin is always dry during the winter and it needs moisture. The best moisturizer for your skin in the winter time is white petroleum jelly. Also medicated lotion with aloe is good for dry skin.

For spring and summer months, and for most people; the skin gets oily and then tends to break out. I have noticed this with mine. My skin is basically oily to begin with, so the spring and summer months makes it worse.

For oily skin, you can benefit from cleansing and cream masks and scrubs that are meant to stay on the skin until it completely dries, then you rinse it off and follow up with a moisturizer and make up. If you have oily skin, then you will need an oil free moisturizer and also oil free makeup.

Scrubs that contain fruit acids (natural is best) is excellent for acne-prone skin. For example; strawberry and melon scrubs would be ideal if you suffer from oily or acne-prone skin. These scrubs are great for both spring and summer.

The best time to use a scrub is before going to bed. Exfoliating  scrubs washes away all make up and oily impurities. It's best to use scrubs no more than three times per week. If you use it daily, they tend to dry your skin and then causes it to be too harsh. You can find homemade masks and scrubs online by doing a simple Google search.

One lasts thing to remember about your skin in summer months is "sunscreen." Always apply it liberally on all exposed areas of the skin, and this of course includes your face. Also a tanning bed dries out your skin a lot more than you may think. So, it's your decision if you want tanned skin or patchy, dry, irritated, skin.

What Some People Are Saying About Tanning Beds:

Some people with severe eczema claims that the tanning bed did wonders for them.

Tips to Help Grandmothers Fight Age Spots and Experimenting With Principal Secret Skin Care


If you’re like me you may have thought age spots were from aging, but that’s not the case. From what I’ve researched, most age spots are from the sun. While the sun gives you Vitamin D and is needed for mental health, it can harm your skin in several ways. Too much sun can give you age spots or something worse, so it’s important to take care of your skin.







Reclaim – Principal Secret Skin Care Line



I’ve been using Reclaim for 3 months now and I have to say I love it. I was a little skeptical about using it, (just like all the rest of the skin care lines). I was watching the infomercial one afternoon and decided to go for it and I ordered it online. I thought to myself, I’ll use the Reclaim and if I don’t like it, I’ll use the Cindy Crawford skin care products. My Daughter-In-Law is using Cindy Crawford and she just loves it.



Here is what I’ve seen so far on my skin in using Reclaim for 3 months…



1. Better over-all skin complexion


2. Less red areas and more clarity


3. My skin is super soft


4. Less visibility of the fine lines around my eyes and mouth


5. More Smoothness to my skin – One product that I just love and leaves my face feeling the smoothest I’ve ever felt it ever is Age Breaker Wrinkle Retreat Refirming Mask. These are small capsules that you twist to open and squirt onto your hands, then apply it to the skin before moisturizing.




If you’re a grandmother and you’ve found you didn’t take care of your skin or maybe you’re a little younger and didn’t take care of it properly, you need to find a way to make it look and feel better.



Here are a few suggestions. The best way to prevent age spots is to protect your skin from the sun. The easiest way to do that is to stay inside as much as you can. If that’s not possible, you’ll want to wear clothing that covers your skin and a hat that covers your head. If that’s not possible, keep the time you spend in the sun down to a minimum and wear sun screen at all times.



If you’re already showing signs of age spots, there are several things you can do to make them lighter or you can get rid of them all together. One of the best ways is to use a cream specifically designed for age spots. These creams can be used as a daily moisturizer and they’ll renew your skin by lightening the dark aging spots. These creams contain Vitamin C and other ingredients that remove spots and help your skin to look healthy and feel great.



As a grandmother it’s important to have the best looking skin possible so you will always look your best. One way to do that is to use a skin bleaching process. This process will lighten your age spots, but you need to be careful because skin bleach contains Hydroquinone. The reason is because Hydroquinone is dangerous and may cause cancer. You need to read the ingredients and choose a product that doesn’t contain Hydroquinone. When you think of age spots you may only think of your face, but that’s not always the case.



You can have age spots on your hands as well. Your hands are exposed to the sun just like your face, so you need to be careful with them too. You may find hand creams are expensive, but they’re well worth it when they give you the results you’re looking for and your hands will look great. One of the best hand creams would be one that contains Shea Butter.



Just because you’re a grandmother doesn’t mean you can’t look your best at all times. When you use these tips to handle age spots you may have, you’ll look your best. These suggestions may help, but you should talk to your doctor or dermatologist before starting any treatment to make sure the plan you have will work for the condition you have whether it’s on your hands, arms, or face.

Split Ends (Hair) – Beat an egg yolk and mix it with some honey and olive oil and massage on hair, wrap in a warm towel and leave for 30 minutes before rinsing

An alternative to shampoo – Use baking soda instead, it will absorb oil and loosen dry skin. It’s also a great remedy for dandruff



Softer Hands – Dip your hands in fresh milk for 5-10 minutes on a regular basis. Your hands will feel softer and will eventually lose all of the wrinkles and calluses from hard work



Eye Soother – Use a mix of cucumber and potato juice in chilled state. Dip it in cotton and place over your eyes and relax for 10-15 minutes. Wash off and apply some coconut or baby oil. It is a great eye soother as well as a stress reliever. Coconut oil also helps to get rid of dark circles over time



Lips – Lemon juice is a great remedy for dark lips. Use it on a regular basis and experience wonderful results
