Emily from Joyful Abode "Now that I’m a mother, my life is very different. And I love it. Here are just a few things that are different and wonderful."
Rebecca from Roots & Wings "I feel as though my life has run away, with me barely holding on to it! I moved into my new home last year, I am in my last year of getting my degree to be a teacher, and the years seem to just be going by faster and faster."
Gen from Welcome to Quadville! Battling a lifetime in the sun, I like Olay because it gives me a second chance. I feel like I'm doing my skin a favor. I'm also making smarter choices in my life. I eat well, drink TONS of water, and exercise daily. I take care of my skin and my children's skin (head to toe)."
Tara from Feels Like Home "I want to set a better example for my girls. I don’t want them to learn that mothers always come last. I want them to learn that mothers have needs, too, and that taking care of yourself is as important as taking care of others."
Morgan from The 818 "I mean, after marriage and babies, botox is totally the next thing we have to look forward to as a sign that we’re entering a new dimension of life, right? But is botox really something people my age are doing already?"
Angie from Eclectic Recipes "Since my birthday, those fine lines around my eyes seem to be more visible. That eye cream that I first started buying when I was 20, and have been using sporadically ever since, needs to become a daily routine now."
Jenna from Jenna's Journey "I had my bag packed and everything ready to go, and if you couldn’t guess I am indeed one of those girls who takes makeup to the hospital. And a hair dryer. And my curling iron. Oh, and hairspray."
Lindsay from The Cottage Home "For the last three years, since I have been either pregnant or nursing, I feel like my wardrobe has been all over the place. I’ve got maternity clothes, just had a baby post-pregnancy clothes, sort of just had a baby post pregnancy clothes, and my “I still feel like I need to lose 5-10lbs after having a baby” clothes (which is where I currently stand)."
Janet from Slice of Pink "The simplicity is helping. My morning routine is faster, more streamlined. I don't have to dig through a drawer of old makeup to find an eyeliner. I also notice my skin looks better--I'm using a limited number of products and have plenty of time for the basics, including moisturizing my face every morning."
Leah from A Girl and a Boy "We worry about the effect environmental factors have on our skin--UV rays, dry air, pollution--but we don't always think about the ways in which our lifestyles are also impacting how we look. What part of your lifestyle has the biggest influence on your skin?"
Blogger Slynnro "As I've discussed here before, I'm in something of a transitional phase in a variety of ways during my life. I've turned 30, I've recently moved in what I consider to me my first real grown up place, some big decisions about where I'm going with my career and personal life will have to be made in the next few years."
Stephanie from Totally Together Journal "This is the third week that I’ve been using the Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti Aging Moisturizer. I feel pretty good! I’m happy with the way my skin looks and my friend Georgia, NO LIE, said I looked really healthy yesterday."
Kelly from Kelly's Korner "I’ve never had great skin. In college I went through a horrible time period where I had continuous, awful breakouts. I think it was a combination of stress, hormones, and unhealthy eating. Ever since that time, I’ve been very self conscious of how my skin looks and very aware of good skin on other people. It’s something that I notice right off about a person and probably the thing I’m most likely to envy."
Megan from In This Wonderful Life "Evidently, you are never too young to get wrinkles. I think the ones around the eyes are the ones that really do a number on you. Well, at least me. I don't use waterproof mascara or eyeliner, but yet I always have a hard time getting my eye makeup off!"
Lisa from Milehimama "Stress that isn’t being kind to my throat (The yelling! The growling!) or my skin(hello, pregnancy “glow”. Just like when I was 13. Great.)"
