Welcome to my blog! I am glad you are here! My goal is to share my journey with my readers and help them to love themselves, look good and follow their passion. If you are healthy you can do everything and at any point of your life… age is but a number.

I am a dreamer, wife, an artist and a proud mom of two beautiful girls.  I wanted to study art, but my life put me in the direction of accounting major in college. I have never given up on my art passion and it did not take long for me to realize that numbers and math were not my Kryptonite.  By day, I work to pay bills, buy chocolate and art supplies. By night, I am writing books and articles, eat chocolate and make art inspired by the magic of Eastern European, Thracian, and Slavic Mythology. I live in New England with my husband, two kids, a dog and a cat. I love art, antiques, food, books and fashion. I have so many ideas, I wish I could have 9 lives to be able to realize them.
I am going to be 50 in few months, the Golden Age.  I don’t want to be 30 or 40 again, I don’t want to look ‘young’ with bleached or over-colored hair and short skirt and to be constantly banging about how young I feel.  I don’t want to be the woman who goes clubbing with all the ‘much younger’ people to feel young.  I just want to love myself, look myself, follow my passion, and take the trouble to remain elegant and attractive.

I want to be 50, 60 or 70, even 80, travel as much as I can, enjoy my family and friends. I’ve decided to make some changes and take steps to healthier and happier me! Find the lost “ME” again! I pledge to take a little extra time on my skincare routine, take a little more “ME” time to take care of myself.
I am glad you are here! My goal is to share my journey with my readers and help them to love themselves, look good and follow their passion.50 is the Golden Age of Happiness, it is time to accept “YOU” and embrace the power of positive living!I don’t want to get younger, I want to get fit, to eat better, and get more sleep. Once upon I was the “fashion lady”, now I am going to work with boring outfits and a ponytail.  I don’t use lipstick anymore and forgot to smile.
It is time to get my old “ME”, be more confident and get what I want.  I need to reinvigorate my marriage. Need to find time for my family and bring back the power of positive living in my life. I can’t turn the clock back and be my younger self, but I can rejuvenate the “ME” and be the woman I want to be.
I think the biggest step in my self-love journey will be to accept the idea that I won’t always feel good—about myself or life in general, but this is true at any age!

I love to paint and write! My favorite artist is Gustav Klimt and I have incorporated something from his style in my paintings, the golden leaf for sure.

I’m an optimist…When life gives me lemons I try to make lemonade. I love my community and I believe we all need to give back and help unfortunate.

Maya Angelou, the writer, poet, dancer and activist is the person who inspires me the most. She wrote an essay “The Sweetness of Charity,” on how offering a helping hand can enrich the soul.

She writes:
“The New Testament informs the reader that it is more blessed to give than to receive. I have
found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver. The size and substance of the gift should be important to the recipient, but not to the donor save that the best thing one can give is that which is appreciated. The giver is as enriched as is the recipient, and more important, that intangible but very real psychic force of good in the world is increased.
When we cast our bread upon the waters, we can presume that someone downstream whose face we will never know will benefit from our action, as we who are downstream from another will profit from that grantor’s gift.
Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence -neither speed up nor
slow down, add to nor diminish – it is an imponderably valuable gift. Each of us has a few minutes a day or a few hours a week which we could donate to an old folks’ home or a children’s hospital ward. The elderly whose pillows we plump or whose water pitchers we refill may or may not thank us for our gift, but the gift is upholding the foundation of the universe. The children to whom we read simple stories may or may not show gratitude, but each boon we give strengthens the pillars of the world.”

I pledge to take a little more “ME” time to take care of myself and be positive.
If you are healthy you can do everything and at any point of your life… age is but a number.

My goal is to share my experience and knowledge and share each week articles and tips covering money, career, sex, marriage, relationships, health, wellness, hobby, work and caregiving.

Enjoy my blog!
