Well, not I am in my 40’s and girls, it is a real thing!! And myself, like many in my age range (give or take) can agree fully agree that there is no helping it or stopping it. And, as embarrassing as it may be, it is a real thing.

In My Forties and Frisky with Fiera for Her #FeelTheLove

Disclosure ~ Many thanks to Fiera for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to be in my forties and frisky. #FieraForHer #OnFiera #FieraConversation #FeelTheLove #RelationshipRefresh

Picture 175

Back when I was younger, in my 20’s, I never thought that I would have issues with my sex drive, or intimacy with my husband.  Well, now being 44 I am realizing that the way I felt back in my 20’s was all fine and dandy but one just never can foresee how things will be the older we get. Life gets busy, health issues come up, and face it.. age happens.  But, I refuse to let things fall by the wayside!  I love my husband and our time together is important.  I am not old, I am in my forties and frisky!! My husband and I might not chase each other around the house like we once used to, but we still are very into each other and enjoy our time together.  I encourage anyone who has the feeling that they are older and things are slipping to practice a few simple things like we do to keep the intimacy happening. Be respectful of each other.  Understand that sometimes the “mood” just doesn’t come out of the blue.  Do little things to show your partner that you want some intimate time together. Set up date nights so you have time set aside just for the 2 of you.  Life is busy, and I know many who set up date nights with their partners.  It is a night set aside just for the 2 of us and we let the stress of the week go and enjoy just each other.  Dinner, movies, or just lots of petting and intimacy for us.  Adding in use of the Fiera really helps get me going because sometimes I need a bit more for before-play.  We are very open with each other about our wants and needs and that also helps huge with our intimacy. Talking and communication is such a huge part of a healthy relationship.   Knowing what makes my husband feel good is important to me, and him knowing what makes me feel good is important to him. I guess this is why we have been together 21 years.

Being in my forties, and the fact I had a full hysterectomy years back and am slowly starting menopause, I am very pleased to say that using products to help me get in the mood have helped our intimate relationship.  Fiera is for “Before-Play.” It’s used for a few minutes prior to sex and then removed when I start to feel interested and physically aroused, and am ready for a pleasurable sexual experience. I simply remove it when I feel warmed-up and in the mood. Fiera’s unique combination of gentle suction and stimulation increases the sensations of tingling and fullness that accompany sexual arousal. •  The company behind Fiera for her is led by women, and works closely with women in development of all products.

Please share the love and Tweet.

  Our target audience is women, in relationships, approximately 40-60 years of age. We are a premium brand that unlike most sexual wellness products, is truly backed by scientific studies.

A large percentage of our purchasers are the male partners in the relationship.

The Basic Products You Need In Your Skin Care Routine

The Basic Products You Need In Your Skin Care Routine

Beauty Image

Do you ever wonder how some people manage to have such flawless skin? They always look picture perfect, even when they aren’t wearing any make-up. YOU could be one of those people. There are several ways to achieve great skin; you just have to be willing to invest some money and some time.


And while some view cosmetic surgery Manchester as the only solution to picture-perfect skin, there are also things you can do on your own, with one of the most important being maintaining a healthy diet. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean protein will make your skin glow from the inside out. You’ll also want to implement a daily skin care routine.


Not only will this improve your overall skin health but it will also help slow down the visible characteristics of the aging process. To have a good skin care routine, you’ll need the right products. Here are the essentials you’ll need to get your daily routine underway:



A cleanser will help take off any grime or makeup you have on and it clears off any impurities that you’ve been exposed to.



Toners are meant to be used after you’ve cleansed your skin. A good toner will help restore and repair your skin’s surface.



Exfoliating helps the overall appearance of your skin. It removes any dead skin cells, helps clear any breakouts, improves the skin’s texture, reduces the appearance of large pores, and helps your skin to better absorb moisturizers and serums.



A good moisturizer is an essential part of any skin care routine. It hydrates the skin and helps improve circulation. Make sure to use a formula with SPF to help protect your skin from sun damage.


Eye cream

The skin around your eyes is delicate and needs a little extra TLC. Keeping the under eye area moisturized helps control puffiness, reduce dark under eye circles, and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines.



A facemask isn’t required daily, but it should still be an important part of your skin care routine.  Ideally, you should do one once a week. A mask stays on for approximately 10-15 minutes. During that time, it seals your skin and allows for the ingredients to work their magic. It can help with drawing out impurities, getting rid of dead cells, all while tightening and toning your skin making it definitely worth the effort.


Lip balm

Dry lips are the worst. Not only are they unsightly, but they can also cause pain if the skin cracks. For these reasons, it’s always good to keep them moisturized with a good lip balm.


And there you have it – a complete list of what you’ll need to keep your skin glowing on a daily basis. With a little effort, you can revitalize your skin and enjoy a more youthful appearance for years to come. It’s never a bad idea to consult with a professional to find out what skin type you have as this will allow you to tailor your skin care products to suit your skin’s particular necessities.

The Benefits of the Halo Engagement Ring

The Benefits of the Halo Engagement Ring


A halo setting for a diamond engagement ring provides that luxury and classic setting that people have been enjoying since the early 20th century. This provides a type of vintage ring design that features a center stone, surrounded by a number of smaller stone. If you are interested in the Halo engagement rings, read below for more information.

The Evolution of the Halo Engagement Ring

This type of engagement ring setting has been used since right after World War I. This is part of the art deco style and clearly seen by the bold and geometric shapes that this ring offers. You can clearly tell you have found a halo engagement ring when you see a single large stone, surrounded by a number of smaller stones. The center stone can be round, pear, square or cushion cut.

The Custom Halo Setting

When it comes to a halo setting, a professional jeweler will be able to provide regular shapes, including cushion cut or round, in addition to more unique shapes such as radiant cut or princess cut diamonds. The fact is that no matter the event or occasion, ladies who are wearing a ring with a halo setting will be able to continue impressing others in their social circle. The sparkle and elegance that this ring offers is truly unmatched by any other option that is currently available.

When you select a ring that has a halo setting, it will help to trick the eye into believing that the single diamond in the ring is actually much larger than it may be. You should be sure that you choose a metal that will complement the center stone that you have chosen for the ring. There are a number of different metals that you can select from for the ring, including platinum, yellow gold or white gold.

It is easy to create an affordable and titanium rings when you use a gemstone, rather than a diamond, as well; however, if you are searching for bridal jewelry, a diamond is going to be the obvious choice. The fact is that there are a number of modern designs that will maintain the original concept of the halo style and ensure a stunning ring design for your fiancée. Be sure that you use a reputable jeweler if you are planning to choose this type of ring for your engagement.
Selecting the right jeweler, like the ones at CrownRing, will make this process so much easier. They will be able to guide a person towards the right ring by taking into account what their needs are.

Are You Younique ?

Are You Younique ?

Have you seen all those pictures all over Facebook of the eyes, with the funky and bright colors on the lids?   Or the pics of all those eyes showing the lashes before and after using the special fiber mascara?    Well, if you haven’t I think you are hiding under a rock because they are everywhere and you can’t get away from them.   Seems like the company Younique went from nothing, to overload on Facebook like overnight! So, let me ask you ~ Are you Younique ?

Was I interested ?   Well yeah!! I was looking at the pics, thinking that I wanted the products because I wanted my eyes to look like that.   I even reached out to a rep I knew and asked about joining as a consultant.   Like I need another thing on my plate… NOT!    Well, I wasn’t sold on Younique at first.  I even did a product review, and just wasn’t totally sold.  Then, I started keeping tabs on other presenters, seeing new products added and thought, I might need to try it again.  So, I did.  I ordered the new liquid foundation, watched some application video’s on YouTube, and thought.. this is for me.  I have been a Bare Minerals user for years now, and when I try something new, I always go back to BM.  Not this time!!  I totally love the liquid foundation.  It goes on liquid, and turns to a powdery finish which I love.  Doesn’t feel thick or cakey, and looks very natural.   I am so glad I went out on a limb and ordered.  Now, with just one application of the liquid foundation I am sold.  I also am sold on the companies values, the products are natural, and the business opportunity is amazing!!


I use the eye shadows, the eye creams, the mascara, liquid foundation, concealer, powder foundation, brushes and have more on the way.   Love it all!!

Some of it takes a bit of practice to use, like the liquid foundation or the fiber lash mascara. But, once you get it, you are totally sold, like me!!   Never leave home with a naked face again!  Look like a rock star all day, every day.

Wanna get yourself some Younique?  Or maybe take on a new career?  Check out my site ~ Makeup and Muscles.   See, the name I chose fits, because I am all about muscles, and now about makeup.

Yoga Bag Essentials #PoiseLinerLove

I love yoga and one treat I give myself when I can is hitting the local hot yoga classes.  And a new place just opened up even closer to me and I am so excited to get into a class soon.  I am one of those freaks who keeps her yoga bag packed at all times.  I keep all my yoga essentials in the bag so when I am on my way out the door, I grab my bag and go. My yoga bag essentials is very simple, but exactly what a girl needs.  I have my yoga mat, a towel, a bottle of water, and my Poise Microliners.  So, no matter when I hit a yoga class or whatever kind of yoga class it is, I am prepared.

I love my Poise Microliners and love that I can get them easily at my local Walmart.  They are even offering a $2 off coupon, grab yours here.  I tend to be one of those lucky girls who has a weak bladder, and I leak a bit from time to time. So, just to be safe, especially when doing yoga or a hard workout I just don’t have time to worry about my bladder leakage.  Poise is there for me and I can concentrate on my yoga moves and not on the little things.  And after years of shopping in the fem care aisle I came to realize that Poise liners were just a better solution for my bladder leakage.  I like the microliners because they are thin and fit perfect into my yoga pants. See, I wear no undies when I do yoga, as I don’t want things that bind.  So, I wear yoga pants and my microliners.   Love them!!

So, as stated in my last post about Poise, if I am hitting my home gym and getting busy with my weights, or heading to a yoga class, I am protected.   No more worries for this girl.  No embarrassing wet pants, or uncomfortable feeling from my bladder leakage.  Nope, I have #PoiseLinerLove for sure!  Tell me, do you have a yoga bag essentials or gym bag?  What is in yours?

I am inviting you all to enter a giveaway featuring a $100 Gift basket filled with Kimberly Clark products and a $200 Walmart Giftcard.    Enter below ~

Myths about Liposuction

Liposuction (2)

You will hear tons of medical myths when it comes to liposuction. However, before you believe in hearsay and make your decision based upon it, it is important that you consult a physician; you might be surprised by what you hear. Here are some common myths.

Liposuction Removes Cellulite

There are tons of treatments in the modern medical world that target the cellulite in your body but Liposuction is not one of them. Cellulite removal allows your skin to snap back into its proper place while liposuction removes the fat out of your body but does not affect the skin.

Liposuction Is a Weight Loss Tool

Liposuction can by no means act as a replacement for exercise and diet. This is the procedure you opt for to treat your problem areas or when both diet and exercise fail.

There is a Particular Age for Liposuction

As the adage goes, age is just a number. Since skin is not a factor that is counted for the treatment, you can have the procedure done at any age you want. You should not expect a miracle at any certain age but you should not forego discussing everything that you are concerned about with your doctor at Sono Bello.

Being Obese Automatically Qualifies You as the Perfect Candidate for Liposuction

This may seem a bit counterintuitive; however, the ideal candidate is one who is slightly overweight; someone who is fairly close to their target weight but has trouble with the last few steps. This is because higher skin elasticity is a plus when it comes to the degree of success of post surgical results in this case.

Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Are the Same

This is not exactly true. For example, you are a mother and you are not sure which procedure to go with. Liposuction gets rid of fat but not the stretch marks and the stretched skin that you got after pregnancy. A tummy tuck procedure can get rid of abdominal fat, excess skin and some marks.

Liposuction Is Not For Men

If you are a man considering this procedure, you should know that you are not the only one. Robert Cohen, a Plastic surgeon in Scottsdale, states that one of the most common reasons you will see a man at the plastic surgeons is for liposuction. Frank Lista, a Toronto plastic surgeon, has observed the same trend. He says that the operation is similar for both the sexes and men find their stubborn fat areas in chest, love handles, and the abdomen.

Show Up To Work Flawless After Surgery

Liposuction is nothing like going to the dentists. After the surgery, you have to go through a recovery period. The swelling, for instance, takes around a week to go away; the patients start seeing accurate results by this time. Most people are advised by their doctors to take some time off work when going for the procedure. That being said, every individual recovers differently and because of that you need to know your limitations and keep an eye on how you are healing.
