The Confident You

Most of us grew up believing we had to live up to what society thought we should be. The struggle within ourselves, the not feeling good enough for just being who we are, breaks down our self-esteem. Most women are dissatisfied with their bodies and their image and are too critical of themselves. Acceptance of true self is a beginning.

The genuine desire to better yourself guides you to accept your image as it is. We look to strengthen that which is important. Confidence needs to be acquired from within. Avoid judgment from those around you; those negative thoughts can only defeat you.  Healthy and genuine self-confidence gives peace of mind.

Embrace who you are and enjoy your shape, your size, your age.

Taking an account of what is important to you is taking a step towards making a positive change.

Feel and be healthy by taking care to eat properly, exercise, meditate to reduce stress and cultivate gratitude.

Healthy eating is enjoying what you eat and knowing that you’re giving your body everything it needs. As we age our metabolism shifts, small changes can make a big difference. It is not about depriving yourself of the foods you love but more about eating foods that give you energy and keep you healthy. Eat a variety of foods, watch your portions and limit sugars, salts and refined foods. Listen to your body, know when you are satisfied and not stuffed.

Exercise, you have to do what you like, otherwise you won’t stay with it; a sunset walk with your dog or a friend, gardening, yoga or learn a new sport, reestablish an old one. Exercise improves your energy and feelings of well-being.

Make a list of what is most important to you and what you value most. Start to recognize the possibilities for your life. Too often we conceive negative thoughts and fears that we hope to avoid and we try to defend against, we need to turn that around.

Change your language, words are powerful. Take responsibility for your negative voice  and begin to erase your self-defeating thoughts.

Transformation will take perseverance and pursuit. Nurturing the mind and body you will become vibrantly alive.

Live grow and be.


The Story of LA PEAU

LA PEAU,  a Swiss skincare line is the talk of the town.

The story begins in the beautiful foothills of the Alps in the most beautiful mountain country in the world, Switzerland. Irma and Carla Khanjian are the dynamic sister team that helped develop and launch LA PEAU skincare.  The company headquarters are in Geneva, where biotech experts along with prominent scientists from Stanford University have researched and developed this exceptional anti-aging antioxidant skincare line.

This advanced skincare treatment’s visual results are compelling.

It’s secret, a proprietary molecular cocktail packed with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  In only 28 days skin looks dramatically firmer and smoother.  We love the remarkable gel formula that melts on your skin to moisturize, nourish and stimulate your skin’s ability to regenerate, while hydrating and firming, improving the skin’s texture.

LA PEAU is the best antioxidant product on the market today and the most efficient anti-wrinkle treatment, ”  concluded Edel Therapeutics (Lausanne, Switzerland), after comparing this new line to 18 leading anti-aging products.

I love when my friends tell me my skin looks great and I know it’s because I use LA PEAU, all three creams religiously. LA PEAU skincare is a superb product, it has restored the freshness to my face. I love the texture, it’s feels light, not greasy yet I know it is working magic.
