4 Ways to Look as Young as You Feel

Guest Post//Collaboration

There is a saying: “Age is just a number”.  And, indeed, it is true.  Growing older is a privilege, as not everyone can be in their  40s, 50s, 60s and beyond.

We  feel young inside, no matter the age. For this reason, here are a few  tips on how to feel great and look young at any age!

1. Find The Colours That Suit You

It’s great to experiment with different colours and styles of clothing when we are younger. But, as we grow older, we learn  which style in clothing makes us feel  fabulous. As well, as  which specific colours and colour combinations make us look and, as a result, feel great.

It is quite easy to determine that. The shade which suits you will make your skin look glowy and healthy. The colour will be in harmony with your natural colouring and will brighten your complexion. Moreover, “your colours” can knock off a few years.  You can find out your palette  by yourself.  Or with a little bit of help from your friends and family.  If you find that challenging,  it’s always a great idea to book a consultation with a stylist.

2. Take Great Care of Your Skin

A lot of us had evenings where we fell asleep while watching telly and went  to bed with our  makeup still on. But to look as young as you can for as long as possible, you have to be diligent with your skincare. You simply have to be to wearing sunscreen every day. And don’t forget about removing your makeup every evening, and cleansing your face thoroughly. It is also  important to use products specially formulated for acne skin if that problem occurs.

Unfortunately, acne and blemishes are not just for teens; you can break out at just about any age. To look your best and feel confident in your skin, look for adult acne products that are easy to use and effective.

For example, the Unblemish products from Rodan and Fields can be a key part of any adult acne skincare routine. Remember, the best skin care routine for acne is the one you will actually want to do, so look for

Dietbon Diet Ready Made Meals: My Experience

Today I would like to share about my experience with Dietbon diet ready made meals

I was sent a week’s  worth of food, a manual and had a consultation with a certified dietitian.  So here is all about my experience, and also a photo of every single meal I’ve had during the week.

First of all, I have to say that I was very impressed with the fact that you get a consultation with a dietitian. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to understand more about eating and Dietbon in particular. It is also brilliant to have some encouragement and reassurance that you are doing everything right. 

Day 4. 5th of March: Chicken and Asparagus Risotto  and Marinated Grilled Salmon with Mashed Courgettes. Tea and snacks.

I had a consultation with a lovely lady called Jenny, and, although I hate talking on the phone, especially with people I’ve never met before, it all went smoothly, and I’ve enjoyed our conversation. 

Here are 3 tips from Jenny which I want to share:

  1. Drink water first thing in the morning. I actually do drink first thing in the morning but I usually have a herbal tea with a bit of honey. 
  2. Drink more water in general, it is also a great thing to do when you come back from work (when you do; during the “normal times” not now) have a glass of water. A lot of people can’t tell the difference between thirst and hunger so doing that will help with not eating sugar and fast food, and will give you some time to think of what to cook.
  3. Don’t be very hard on yourself/don’t beat yourself up when you had a piece of chocolate or some crisps.  Yes, and amen. I personally let myself eat everything, just in moderation. So when I really want some ice cream (ooh, ice cream, my love!), I will have some. This does not mean, however, that I will be eating it all day every day.

Recipe of June: Salads

This month was all about salads, which you could notice if you follow me on Pinterest. I tried not to upload my every meal on Instagram but a few did end up there #SorryNotSorry.

My favourite kind was with lettuce as a base, tomatoes,  bell pepper, cucumbers, some kind of seeds and cheese and mushrooms, grilled chicken or salmon. Usually with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

But there are so many variants and so many on my to-cook list. So, please, if you

Clean And Lean Diaries. Part 3: Week 2. Impressions.

I was very happy that so many of you liked Part 1 of my Clean and Lean experience.  And thank you for contacting me on Twitter and via e-mail, but don’t be shy leaving your comments here, as well 🙂

This time it won’t be so detailed, as there were only four new dishes, that I haven’t featured before.

This week it took less time to prepare everything because I already knew how to cook most dishes, plus I have already bought almost all the ingredients, and organized everything. So I had to make only few grocery shopping trips, to buy some fresh fish or berries. And, yes, I did have free time this week.

At this point I really got used to such schedule, and didn’t miss or crave anything, like in the first week. I love how everything is organized, and I don’t have to worry about anything: what to buy for dinner, where to eat lunch etc.

Unfortunately, I had some major health issues (which I still need to take care of), so I did end up eating an ice cream to cheer myself up, which was cheating, obviously.  Other than that, I enjoyed most of the meals a lot.

Speaking of ice-cream, that was probably the only thing that I really missed. Any other food? Maybe potatoes, as I love baked, roasted or mashed potatoes, mmm.

Here is the meal plan:
