The One About The Frumpy Mommy Part II

Let's admit it. I'm no spring chicken anymore.

I am 37 and a half years old. I'm not sure how this happened, but it did.

I still remember back in 2000....when I was starting a new life and a new job and I turned 30 years old and everyone was in shock! They said I looked 21 and it made me feel so good! I think what the deal was...that I was fatter then and the fat was filling in my wrinkles.

Now....I look 37. Well 34 at best. I think part of the problem is that I became Tanorexic right after that birthday and tanned regularly for about 3 years. They say that tanning is bad for you and I believe them. But man, I just loved it. I still crave it sometimes when I am feeling really white and pasty and a little down.

So now we must do damage control. My face is in pretty bad shape. It needs help! Just my luck, my sister Bobbi just started selling Mary Kay and she sent me some samples. I love samples!!

I tried these products last week and I can still see a visible improvement in my skin. WOW!

TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set

This is a two part system. Refine and Replenish. Think of it as a scrub and a moisturizer. The Refine has tiny little exfoliators in it. The smallest I have ever seen. Yet it doesn't feel like it is scratching your skin.

Replenish was nice but I think I am going to stick with the product that I have been using.

The next product that I tried was the TimeWise Firming Eye Cream.

It is a really thick cream that feels like it is doing something. I have tried a couple of eye creams and they have been very thin and almost greasy. This is different and I loved it.

I ordered both of these and I can't wait to start using them full time and see how many years I can take off from my face!! I would like to look 31 by my next birthday!


  1. Girlfriend, I'm 40 and I am still a Spring Chicken. :)

    My sister swears by the MK skincare.

  2. I've been looking for something that I like for my skin. I might have to give this a try.

  3. I've tried those and had good results with them...I am older then you so you can't make comments like that--haha.

  4. I've been wanting to try the microdermabrasion!

  5. That looks cool. I'll have to try it. My friend's friend sells Mary Kay and I am getting reacquainted with the great stuff they sell and really liking it!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
