The Designers Chic

Have you noticed that as we age we get more and more wrinkles? The wrinkles that worries me so much is the around my eyes. I don't mind what I call the laughing wrinkles on the side of my eyes when I smile, what bothers me is the wrinkles under my eyes when I squint. My MIL has been pushing me to get the anti wrinkle cream that she has in her bathroom. She said it is important to use these kind of creams to minimize and help prevent more wrinkles. I was reminded yet again that I'm not getting any younger, I'm guessing I need all the help I can get. The coming cold months is usually brutal on my skin, specially on my face. I have better stock up again on a lot of facial moisturizer, lotions and anti wrinkle creams.


It comes to no surprise that women have this saying that our hair is our crowning glory. Too bad that has never applied to me. I am cursed with fine, thin, limp hair. How I wish my hair was think and lustrous. Doing my hair is a pain in the behind,specially when I need to go to a party or somewhere nice. Do you know how embarrassing it is when you know that people are staring at the back of your head where you know they can see the spot were your scalp is showing? I have told our family doctor about my worries and I was adviced to go to a Dermatologist. She said a Dermatologist will know what hair loss products will best for my type of hair. I have been dragging my feet about setting up an appointment but I know I have to call one soon. I don't want to end up with a big bald spot on the back of my head before I turn 40. It just my luck to have inherited my grandmothers genes when it comes to hair.


It is officially Fall and we were just in time to close our pool for the season. We actually closed the pool in preparation for the Winter months ahead last week. Both of us were anxious about covering the pool and winterizing it. Every time we close the pool for the season we always encounter something that will go wrong. This has been our 5th liner and we don't want a repeat of last year. All our worries were for naught, Ralph winterized the pool, I helped him with the covers in no time at all and without any incident. Both of us just gave a big sigh of relief. Soon the temperature will be dropping and the leaves will start to fall. Some of the trees have already stated loosing their green foliage. Our leaves have yet to change colors from green to orange, yellow, red and brown hues. The season full of great golden colors. I can't wait for summer to come back and swim in that crystal clear water again.
