Favorite Oils

Don't we all just love those long summer days? I long ago discovered that I was definitely a warm sun kind of person. It just makes me feel so good to wake up in the morning and draw the curtains felling the sun on my face...oh the joy!
I work better, which makes my productivity faster and smoother.
The one thing I am always careful about is my skin.
Skin versus the sun is a way of bringing on old, wrinkled skin in a rush of age-defying cells, delipidating collagen and age spots.
Not a great look, eh!!
Lots of SPF always. 
My dad died of skin cancer so I'm always careful. 
It takes but a minute of my time to add a good SPF to my skincare routine.
I have the palest of skin and the minute I am exposed I turn bright red, freckles appear in their droves. I used to hate them and tried scrubbing them off with a nail brush, hehe
But now I enjoy them as part of who I am.
I love using oils on my skin, face, and body. But to buy them is so expensive it's ridiculous so I make my own and have been doing this for years. It's inexpensive and I know exactly what goes in them.
Plant oils sink into skin immediately, they nourish and instead of clogging the pores they feed them with nutrition. Even if you are an acne sufferer it is great to use plant oils. Thre misconception that if you have problematic skin and you cant use oil, is a load of tosh. 
Start with a good carrier oil, and always cold pressed.

Ingredient No. 1: The Carrier Oil
The carrier oil is your primary ingredient in your customized facial oil blend, so it’s important to choose a good oil to suit your skin.
Oils that I have used depending on my skin type at that time.
Sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil is an extremely nourishing oil that contains more monounsaturated fatty acids than any other oil, giving it the ability to intensely moisturize and relieve dry, itchy, dehydrated skin. At the same time, it also works for acne prone skin types as it serves to heal blemishes. The only drawback to this all-around excellent oil is that it takes a little longer to be absorbed, as it works to heal blemishes.
Jojoba oil. Jojoba is lightweight, non-greasy and good for acne-prone, oily, dry, aging and normal skin. For those who suffer from acne, it’s an especially good choice as it has the ability to mimic the skin’s sebum, therefore tricking the skin into thinking that it’s already produced enough oil, which reduces the amount of sebum on its surface. Jojoba also absorbs very quickly into the skin, as compared to other oils.
Avocado oil. Avocado oil is one of the richest sources of beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid, which can have an immediate effect on the texture and appearance of your skin., making it an ideal option for dry, aging skin. Not only does it do extremely well for hydrating and softening your skin, it’s also often recommended as an effective treatment for acne and blackheads, eczema and other forms of skin inflammation. It’s even been reported to be beneficial for diminishing age spots and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
This is what I am using at the moment for my body and my face.
Grapeseed oil. Grapeseed oil contains antioxidants that help fight off damage from UV light which can lead to age spots and wrinkles. While it isn’t the best for dry skin, it’s great for oily or acne-prone skin, and normal skin too.
Argan oil. Argan oil, sourced from the seeds of Moroccan argan trees, contain healing and anti-aging properties to keep skin balanced, hydrated, and glowing. It’s excellent for all skin types, including oily, acne-prone, normal, aging and dry skin.
When my skin is very dry I use this.
Apricot kernel oil. Apricot kernel oil is particularly good for dry and aging skin, though it works well with all skin types, with the exception of acne-prone skin.

Sometimes I like to mix all three of these oils.
Second Oil
Emu oil. Emu oil is an incredible oil used for promoting more youthful looking skin as well as for protecting against sun damage, battling eczema, wrinkles and age spots. It’s especially nourishing for the dry or aging skin.
Rosehip oil. There are many qualities of rosehip oil that make it beneficial for the skin. For facial care, some of its benefits when applied externally include protecting the skin and increase cell turnover, as it contains vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin D and B-carotene, a form of vitamin A, and which are all antioxidants that help fight free radicals. It’s particularly beneficial for aging, dry skin, though it can be used by those with normal skin.
 Borage oil. Borage oil is extremely high in oleic acids and is good for all skin types, though it’s particularly effective for acne-prone and oily skin. It’s also helpful for those that tend to suffer from skin problems like eczema.

Argan oil. It’s not too heavy, not too light—making it perfect to use on all skin types. It’s packed with omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acids, 
Prickly Pear Seed Oil. This is from the Moroccan Desert is exceptionally rich in Vitamin E, Sterols and Fatty Acids. These properties act to protect, hydrate and nourish the skin preventing wrinkles and stimulate new cell growth. ... These are rarely found in other oils.

Third Oil. This  is your essential oil, 

Rose, I love this mainly because the scent reminds me of my grandma but also for its high levels of vitamin A, which increase skin-cell turnover and reduce wrinkles, and vitamin C, which helps even skin tone.

Neroli. Neroli. This has rejuvenating and regenerating for every skin type, its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties make it ideal for the oily and blemished skin. Plus, it'll help maintain moisture levels and balance oily skin

Lavender oil. This is used to treat various skin disorders such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions. It is commonly used to speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns because it improves the formation of scar tissues.

There are hundreds of different types that are great for the skin. I sometimes mix them it just depends how my skin is looking at that moment.
A great trick is to put your mixed ingredients into a roller ball bottle, like the ones used for perfume and then it is easier to apply where you want it most.

It's A Cats Life

Last year I made the big decision to have a cat. And so Molly appeared into my life like a ray of sunshine. So tiny and timid, but yet bravely independent, and from that second on she has become one of the best things I did in 2017.

Almost a year old she has her own personality, bossy, loving and so very playful. It's nothing for me to wake up with her toys on my face while she tries to prise my eyes open with her paw.

She scared the life out of me the first time she did that, Molly's face was so close to mine I could feel her breath on my skin.

Now I can't imagine being without her.

Joseph Pilates was born in Germany on the 9th of December 1883 and developed an exercise that helped with balance, breathing, control and some medical conditions.

He firmly believed that mental and physical health were united, and I agree which is why it’s an integral part of my life. 

This exercise is known as Pilates, and early in the latter part of the twentieth century, he developed his own method of exercises that now is practiced by millions of people me included.

I have a back condition called Spondylolisthesis which is an ailment where one vertebra slips forward over the one below it.

I have had surgeries to help with this but the one thing that keeps me and my back strong is Pilates which I have been practicing since 2009.

 An apparatus known as an Aero Pilates machine is something that I could not manage without. It strengthens my core, which in turn keeps my back strong and supple. I firmly believe I would be crippled if I didn’t do Pilates which is why it’s a daily part of my life.

Seduced By His Desire

Kent Lloyd’s heart was beating faster than it ever had before. This had been a mistake. He shouldn’t have let his emotions dictate his body. Fuck, he should have known better. He knew he would leave her, he wasn’t ready for this kind of shit.
But he couldn’t help but pull Jasmine closer, just for a short while. She curled around him, her thigh between both of his and her hand resting across his lower abdomen. He could tell by the soft sounds of her breathing that she was asleep. He’d never known a woman like her, all prim and proper on the outside but warm and fiery on the inside.
Jack and Rose had married the night before. It had been a small wedding on the Ocracoke Island where Daisy, Rose’s sister, had a house that she and her husband Micah used now and then. Although they didn’t live there permanently, it seemed that whenever there was a family thing they all always ended up there.
Unable to resist Jasmine any longer, Kent had given into the temptation. He’d tried to fight it each and every time they met, but it had been agony. Perhaps they’d both had a little too much to drink, but he found that highly unlikely.
Jasmine made him lose control, she made him seduce her, and he promised himself that he would never let another woman do that to him. Kent ignored the need to slip inside her again and drew the covers back to swing his legs to the floor.
He looked for his clothes, his eyes becoming accustomed to the dark. He shook his head as he remembered taking them off as they climbed the stairs. Jesus, Daisy would have his balls if she ever found out what he’d done.
He turned his head to look at her, and he stroked a finger down her cheek. His stomach roiled with regret—regret at what he’d done, and regret at what he was about to do. He knew that they would see each other again, but Jasmine wasn’t the type of woman to say anything, she knew it was just a once only thing.
Fucking hell, that made him sound cold.
He stood up, naked, and strode toward the door, then turned to look at her once more. She was half covered with a thin sheet, her voluptuous breasts were on display, and he felt a desire in him that was so strong he nearly ripped the door out of the frame. He stepped out, gathering his scattered clothes, thankful that everyone had gone. He dressed and made his way outside.

Kent breathed in the early morning air, but it did nothing to take away the bitter taste of what he’d done. Reaching for the handle of his rented car, he opened it, got inside, and quietly shut the door. The engine spluttered to life when he turned the key in the ignition. Fighting the urge to look behind him, he headed in the direction of the small runway.
