On Beauty: How To Great Skin

Okay ladies!!!

I was reading an expert tip on beauty which I would like to share with you today. It was given by Elle Macpherson, an Australian supermodel, mother and business woman.

Source: Ferdaus Shamim/Getty Images

She explains how to achieve a great skin "... I hydrate and nourish my skin from the inside with antioxidants. So for breakfast I have yoghurt with manuka honey, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. And I make smoothies with carrot, ginger and apple, which gives me energy as well as feeding my skin. I also drink three litres of water a day."

There you have it ladies.

As much as we take care of our skin on outside we need to take care of it from the inside as well. Out of the three things she listed, I like the breakfast tip and the water tip. Not everyone can drink three liters therefore if you can drink 2litres that's a great way to start taking care of your skin from the inside.

I believe we don't need to be supermodels to feel great and a have great skin from the inside-out.

Do you have any tip on how to have a great skin?

Please confess on TC30s.

Physical – I’ve always been very healthy and active, but I feel like I am taking my physical fitness to an entirely new level.  I am incorporating strength training and yoga into my running.  In a sense, I am trying to be more well-rounded.
Social – I definitely go “out” less, and prefer a great dinner and bottle of wine with friends over a “bar night”.
Money – Now that my husband and I want to buy a house and begin a family, we’re much more fiscally responsible!
RelationshipsI am currently married to a wonderful man, and we couldn’t be happier!
Children – None yet, but working on it!  J

Fitness, Food & Fun Friday: Before - After

Last week instead of the usual workout I decided to do something fun which was another alternative to staying fit.

I went ahead to sand off an old dresser
After sanding and rubbing it off with an old cloth, I painted with a primer and after waiting for some hours to dry, I painted with the Dulux white paint. This is the end result.
The refurbishment helped bring into focus the legs and handles of the dressers. I like the fine details.

But I also worked on my squatting and arm lifting and had fun turning something old into something that can be mistaken as new.

Do you like it?

Be Inspired Monday: Balance

I am one of those people who overcomplicate everything I do. I've accumulated too much stuff which I find very difficult get rid of.

But it comes to a time a person needs to streamline her or his life. I am trying to do that and slowly I am getting there. I am focusing on the important things in my life. I reassed my priorities. I know what I really want and what I really need.

I know balance it is key in any chosen goal in life.

How do you organise your time? How do you achieve balance without going crazy?

Please confess on TC30s :)!

Fitness, Food & Fun Friday: Jump It Out!

Remember when we used to do this for fun?

Well ladies, i am here to tell you that skipping is no longer just for fun! 
Jumping rope is a very high impact and effective way to stay and keep fit! 



Skipping has multiple benefits including:
1. Easy to learn
2. Improves coordination and agility
3. No gym membership required
4. Works every muscle in the body part

I've been using the jump rope as part of my fitness plan for several months 
and it's been great. 
Initially, it was hard work but i must say, i'm getting the hang of it.  
Now i can skip for about thirty minutes 
whereas before five minutes of skipping was too much!
I try and have fun while keeping fit and it's been fantastic!

 For your next work out, pick up a jump rope and jump it out!

Confess ladies, have you ever incorporated jump rope into your fitness plan?
If not, what are you waiting for?

On Marriage: Guest Blogger

Here at TC30s, we are inspired by every age and would like to inspire every age.

Today we are so happy to present you Elizabeth the twenty-five years old mother of two, the young lady behind YUMMommy.We love her posts on how to a successful marriage and lifestyle. So imagine our joy when she accepted to write something for TC30s on topic dear to our hearts: Marriage.

I personally believe everyone one, married or not, should read this post. Invite your friends to come and read because it is something we might unconsciously experience.


Today Elizabeth is here to talk about
Identity Crisis

There’s nothing like spending quality time with your spouse or significant other. You know...watching movies together on the couch or walks at the park. While doing things with the
love of your life is great, you want to make sure that you still maintain your own identity. As women we tend to make abandon our own identities and adopt our spouse’s. Thus, we end up developing an identity crisis.

This is a subject I can relate to all too well. I met my husband the second semester of my freshman year in college. He was so refreshing and different from any other guy I had hung out with. We immediately starting spending a lot of time together. In fact, the only days we really didn’t spend time together was when I had class.

My best friends began notice that they were seeing less and less of me. Which was true. They would see me on the days we had class. (We were all fashion majors, except one.) On those days, I’d catch up with them over lunch and dinner in the cafe. But I quickly noticed that they started inviting me to hang out less and less. I didn’t take it personal though because I chalked it up to them thinking that I was with my new boyfriend.

The summer came and school was over. I had decided that I didn’t want to spend the summer at home when all of my friends would be here in the city. I thought we’d be hanging out around the pool, shopping and hitting up parties. Instead, I ended up moving in with my boyfriend (now my husband) and barely saw my friends. Again, I convinced myself that it was ok.

Our token male bff had gone back home and the rest were either working full-time or had booed up like I had. We ran into each other once or twice the whole summer but often kept in touch with Facebook or texting. Thank goodness for technology. I spent my summer bonding and getting to know my boyfriend better as I called it. I never ventured out on my own. We were joined at the hip so to speak.

Fast forward to almost 12 months and it hit me that I didn’t know who I was anymore. I knew who my boyfriend was and who we were as a couple. But when it came to myself as an individual I was totally lost. I had started working thanks to my required externship for school. The company liked me so much they kept me on.

My life had some how become just about work, going to class and spending every other moment in between with my boyfriend who had become my fiance at this point. I think the wedding planning made realize that I was still an individual. I had my own hobbies. I used to enjoy spending time by myself. And more importantly, I used to make time for my friends.

I had to change that quick. First, I started back up with my hobbies. I’m big crafter and decided to get back in touch with crafting side. So, I would drag my fiance to the craft stores with me hunting down yarn and other DIY projects. Eventually, I stopped asking him to tag along all the time because to be honest I enjoyed looking for hours without hearing “Can we go yet?”

I was finding me again. I loved it. If I had to give a piece advice to any young girl or woman entering a relationship it would be to remember and continue to be who your are. Keep your identity.

Enjoy the me time. Don’t give up those shopping trips and spa dates with your girlfriends. And develop hobbies that you can do minus your significant other or anyone else for that matter. Join a social group. Being in a relationship or marriage does require some sacrifice but your identity doesn’t have to be one of them.


Thank you again Elizabeth for this post. Ladies don't forget to say hello to her at YUMMommy!

Question: Have you ever felt like you've lost your identity in a relationship? How do you keep your identity alive in a relationship?

Please share on TC30s.

On Beauty: Body Products

A day doesn’t pass that I don’t use Cocoa Butter(I alternate between two types), E45, vaseline and oil to moisturise my body. I tend to have dry skin and during the winter I have to be more careful than ever. I use the four products above for various purpose.

Cocoa Butter is great to keep any undesirable stretch mark at bay. It works for me and I know it works for some of my friends. Vaseline, I use both lotion and gel when is very dry and cold out.

E45 is an emollient great to treat eczema (dry skin condition). I sub a small amount of the affected areas. I started using E45 two winters ago, because my eczema were appearing on as my chest and stomach. I saw the result, all the dark spots disappeared leaving my skin soft and smooth. I can’t find the exact brand here but I am trying something else , I will let you know how it works. In the meantime I am waiting for some two E45 from London. Body oil, is one of my beauty secret pleasures. I use it when I feel like getting extra pampered. I know one of the bottles read baby oil but it doesn't mean I can't use it, does it?OMG, thinking about it, maybe I am addicted to body products. What do you think?

Which kind of body product/s do you use?

Let's confess on TC30s.

Be Inspired Monday: Never Forget

Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Many of us still remember what we were doing the minute the world changed. Yes, the world changed on September 11, 2001. From that moment on we were introduced to strict security checks and war was declared on TERROR. Causing terror in the whole world.

We cannot forget how our lives has changed. How an innocent face can now be mistaken for someone else. How a garment around someone's face or head can be looked upon with suspiscious eyes. How people united together and cried on strangers' shoulders.
In remembering those whose lives changed drastically after the events of 9/11, let's never forget to enjoy and be thankful for each waking moment. To let our beloved ones know how much we appreciate their lives in our lives. Let's never forget to LOVE giving our 100% and WORK 100% to reach our dreams!

Never forget, Be Inspired Monday!

Celebrating Our 30s!: Optimistic Mom!

As part of Celebrating Our 30s feature, we send our guests a questionnaire with a series of 30 questions they have to answer.  The first four are mandatory.  The rest are up to our lovely guests to pick and choose and have fun with the answers!

We are excited once again to introduce you to another lovely lady in her fab 30s!  
Lartosha (Optimistic Mom) of Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway.  
She is one those bloggers you wish you could meet in person! 
 She is an anonymous blogger but the way she writes makes you feel like you know her. 
 Ms. L is relate-able, insightful and fun!  
The ladies of TC30s hopes to meet her someday soon! 
But for now, let's get to know her more below in cyberspace, 
then pay her a visit to her blog, ASAP!  
Take it away Lartosha!

Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway

Hi Ladies of TC30S,

I am so happy that you have given me the spotlight opportunity today. 
I am ready, what questions do you have for me and is this G, PG13, or X rated? 
Let me know cause I want to ensure I am content appropriate. 
Just breaking the ice. 
Let’s start.

1.       Name & blog
Latorsha. I blog at Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway

2.      Age
33 and loving it!

3).      What have you changed about the following areas since turning 30? 
Physical – Well, I realized that the boobs don’t stand up as well as they used to, especially after breastfeeding, so I got them some help by investing in a sexy push up from Victoria’s Secret. Needless to say the girls are at attention again.

Social – I have really learned to embrace people who touch my life whether they are online connections or people I have met face to face. If they touch my spirit I welcome them to my world. If not, I am strong enough to move on.

Children – My son turned 1 right around the time I turned 30. Over the last few years I have accepted that sometimes it is okay to let your child win. Save your energy for the stuff that really matters.

4. Make a Confession about being a 30something? 
I confess 30 made me better!!

5. What would you tell your 20-something self?
The BEST is yet to come! Oh and leave that loser dude alone. He is seeing another woman and she’ll have his baby soon! RUN!!

6. What is your favourite body part?
Right now my arms, I don’t like to brag but since you asked I gotta nice set of weapons up top.

7. What have you learned about intimacy?
Having been married 9 years, I have to say keep it fresh. Don’t be afraid to try something new.

8. What would you tell your 40-something self?
Remember how much you loved turning 30, well 40 is just an extensive of it. 
Keep the party going!

9. How do you keep fit?
I work out 4-5 times a week. The routine varies, but it is a combination of weights, cardio, and swim. I wish I could tell you I ate healthy all the time, but I don’t want to lie. 
So let’s keep moving.

10.  Does your husband (family) ever read your blog?
I know he bookmarked it on his laptop but since he never says “I can’t believe you said that about me” I figure he doesn’t read it. That’s okay, gives me more to talk about.

Before I go, I just want to say to all the 20 somethings out there, you ain’t seen nothing yet! 
30 is absolutely fabulous. 
Just wait!

Latorsha, is the blogger of Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway, a place where she tries to remain optimistic by any means necessary, mostly laughter. You can check out her blog Here , follow on twitter @AnOptimisticMom or contact her at AnOptimisticMom@


Thank you Lartosha.
Doesn't she have a fun and awesome personality!
And we loved the advice she gives to the 20somethings out there.

Confess ladies, what other advice would you give to your 20something self?

Fitness, Food & Fun Friday: Dresser Refurbishment

This is going to be fun for me, because this is my first time attempting to refurbish something.

Do you remember Karate Kid, the 1984 one? The story of Daniel and how he learns martial arts by waxing cars, sanding a wooden floor, refinishing a fence, and painting Miyagi's house.

This is what Fun Friday is about. No, I don't want to learn martial arts. All I want to do is to refurbish this dresser I bought yesterday.
Apart from hoping to to have something nice out of the old dresser, I believe sanding off and painting will be a fun way to keep fit. The hardest part is sanding off the old varnish with a sandpaper, in the end I will have tired arms. I will be thinking about Karate Kid - rub and wax.

Have you ever done something fun that at first sight it doesn't look fitness workout? Have you ever refurbished something before?

Please share and have fun on Friday TC30s!

On Marriage: Good Sex Before or After 30s?


We are all adult here, right?

Good :)!... then let's talk about SEX!

When my sister was younger, my other sisters and I (who were older by two/three years) would tease her saying: "We will share secrets about making whoopee when you are much older!"

What were these sex secrets that I would not share with her when she was in her early twenties? (now she is almost 30 :). Thinking about when she will come and ask me these secrets lead me to this post! After all it is about confessions in our 30somethings, right?

As I have matured and finally met my husband-to-be, I definitely believe sex has gotten much better. Making whoppee has gone from just a physical act to a level of intimacy that I have never felt before. Have you ever cried during sex (for good reasons?) I am referring to that level of intensity of intimacy!

Then recently one of my girlfiends asked me:"How do you have good sex?""{she has not had a lot of good sex in her adult life}

I am not an expert on sex but I am definitely an expert on my own sex life! (I don't speak a lot about that but once in a while, girls can talk without ever putting our significant others in any embarrassing or compromising situations ;)!

The answer to this question prompted me to think about my own sex life from my twenties and now in my thirties. In my twenties, I was more worried about being loved by my partner. I did not focus on intimacy and sharing love making with the person I was with. I wanted to please, instead of pleasing each other.

Therefore, for me, it is not necessarily about whether sex became better in my 30something, it is about becoming comfortable with oneself as a woman and accepting your sexuality. But most importantly sex/making or whoppee/love become even more fun because one meets the right person who attracte you and makes you feel sexy beyond words!

I met the man who gives me all this and we enjoy each other's company, that translates into how intimate we are with one another in the bedroom.

So, TC30s ladies out there...what are you thinking:

1) When did you manage to achieve the deeper intimacy with your partner?

2) Is making whoppee better in your 30s or you managed to get to that intimacy in your 20s?

3) What has made it better for you?

Please, confess something that makes you feel comfortable!

On Beauty: The Impromptu Purchase

I just got back from Shopper Drug Mart. I went there because I wanted to try to find something similar to a dermatological cream I used London. I found something similar, but before finding, I found something else.
A package full of beauty items I didn't plan to purchase. I made a quick calculation.
I will need toothpaste soon, and that alone is $2. I wouldn't mind trying that coconut scrub. Even though the package is priced $8.99, it is discounted to $7.99.

The content:Satin Care Shave gel
Lady Speed Stick Anti-Perspirant
Nivea Essentials
Colgate Total toothpaste
Vaseline Sheer Infusion Body Lotion
Veet Wax Strips
Aveeno Volumizing Mousse
Coconut Scrub Softsoap Bodywash
Pantene Shampoo
Pantene Conditioner
Schick Quattro Razor
Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel-Cream Sample

I know, I won't use some of the items in the box, but WOW, the total value of the items is more than $54.00. That's the reason I bought something I didn't plan to purchase.

Have you ever bought a beauty item on a whim due to value for money?

Be Inspired Monday: No Limit

Did you watch Expedition Impossible? I was addicted to it. If you did watch it then you know who were the No Limit group. The group was composed by three men. One is blind, the other broke his leg half way the mission, leaving them vulnerable in the adventure. They had to go through lot of diversities but managed to come third in show. They never saw themselves as victims.

They inspire me because they showed that no matter what may come in your life, you have to push forward and never give up.

Hope they inspire you too on this labour day!

Celebrating Our 30s!: Laurin!

TC30s is definitely excited about this new feature!
We will be celebrating some amazing ladies who are enjoying their fab 30s.
These ladies are confessing that life is even more fabulous NOW than ever!
They've learned some lessons along the way, good and bad, and are ready to share it with us!  

TC30s came across Laurin from Searching for Sanity unexpectedly and it definitely was in the cosmos!
Naturally, she had to start off this new feature for us!

Laurin recently turned thirty and we loved the way she celebrated her day.
She so eloquently waved goodbye to her twenties
and sashayed into her next decade beautifully.  
We asked her to share how she celebrated her 30th with us!

Ladies, introducing Laurin:

1. Name & blog
Laurin @ Searching for Sanity  www.thesearchfamily.blogspot.
 2. Age 
3.  What is the best thing you did to celebrate turning 30?
I spent my 30th birthday with my husband and daughter, two of our best
friends, and their two kids.  We enjoyed pizza, cupcakes, wine (there's
always wine!) and had lots of laughs - it was perfect!

Laurin is a beautiful wife, mom, sister, friend and a Gamecock gotta love her!
She believes in: dancing and singing even when everyone is watching and  the kind of love where both your eyes and soul are wide open.  

Take it away, Laurin!

Here we go!

 I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age...
 The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
 Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I’m gonna have some fun
 Try to forget about all the crazy things I’ve done
 Maybe now I’ve conquered all my adolescent fears
 And I’ll do it better in my next thirty years....Tim McGraw

 Thirty isn't so bad.
Its ok to turn thirty!
 I've learned a lot.
 Here's what I've learned and why 30 rocks:

1. Watch out - I can be president in 5 years.
 2. According to Snooki, I am now a cougar.
3. It's a "milestone" birthday.
4. I may be turning 30 but I will always be the youngest in my family.
5. All the life lessons I learned in my 20s, I can now apply to my thirties.
6. Being carded is a compliment.
 7. Like wine, I'm getting better with age.
8. "Remember when" now applies to my twenties.
9. More candles = Bigger Cake
10. Though humbled and broken-hearted, I am wise enough to know what dreams to let go of.
 11. Being thirty is like a rite of passage - I'm old enough for the "old
people" to take me seriously as an adult, but still young enough to be considered "cool."
12. I have a certain confidence in my own experience and knowledge and a
 certain comfort in my own skin that I did not have before.
13. I am one year closer to senior citizen’s discounts.
14. I have a healthy balance of self-discovery and learning from others.15. I know who my friends are.
16. I'm still younger than most of said friends.
 17. The maximum heart rate during exercise is now lower.
 18. I understand and accept that nothing is given to you in life, everything is earned.
 19. I will get fewer weird looks by declining events based on parking
accommodations, size of crowd, food served - simply because of my age.
20. I’m finally at an age where I realize it’s important to take care of ME.
 21. I eat dessert first. Because I can.
 22. I've learned that growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.
23. I've just about run out of lessons that I have to learn the hard way.
 24. I know what I like and what I don't.
 25. 'Life is short, so break the rules. Forgive like you have amnesia,
believe like a kid, love like crazy, laugh til you fart, and never regret anything that made you happy.'
 26. Simply being able to turn thirty is better than the alternative!
27. Don’t quit. Life's storms will define you. No rain, no rainbows.
 28. 'Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness.
 Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends.
 Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.'
 29. The most important thing is not the place where you live but the people
 around you that you share your life with. Take care of them as much as you can.

30. I'm awesome. Just because!


Ladies, when i read this list, i pumped my fist in the air and said YAAHHH to 30! 
Thank you Laurin for such an inspirational list! 
And helping others take ownership of the new chapter in their 30s!
Please stop by and say hello to Laurin @  Searching for Sanity!

And to celebrate, Laurin wanted to share (Sexy) Tim McGraw's the Next Thirty Years with us!

BTW: Happy Birthday on 9/4 to Beyonce!
Welcome to the Fab 30s!
You are glowing!

On Marriage: Guest Blogger

I am sure you know today's guest blogger, the fun-tastic Faith. If you don't know her, you must check her out on Life.Love&Marriage. Everyone who stops by Faith's blog will not turn back without a smile. She is warm and even through a computer screen you want to hug her and see her smile. In my opinion she has the most bright and adoring smile on the blog-sphere!

We love to read her insight on relationship and everything else she writes on her blog is a hit! We were pleased, *{understatement}*, we were ECSTATIC when she accepted to write something on marriage to share with readers of TC30s.


Today she is here to tell us about The Importance of Date Nights in Our Marriages.

It is extremely easy to get wrapped up in our daily lives, especially in this day and age when there are just so many distractions. It is so easy to complain about how busy we are that sometimes we forget to make time for the most important people in our lives. I’ve heard people who have said that they have woken up one day and they have no idea who their spouse is. It is like the time whizzed on by and you were left with a stranger who you happened to marry years ago.

That scenario is one of the reasons why I believe that date nights are important. So important that we have designated a night or day each week to forget about how busy we are and wrap ourselves in that one person.

It can be a simple night in with the surprise of a candlelight dinner. Or a night out to a movie dressed in pajamas. A night where you go out dancing and the two of you move as one to the beat of the drum. Or a night spent on the couch cuddling, watching movies and eating ice cream. Or a day spent at a park having a romantic picnic.

Whatever the date consists of, the only thing that is truly important is taking the time out of the day to talk to your significant other about any and everything. A time to ask questions, to answer questions, to laugh out loud and flirt. A time to remember why you fell in love in the first place.

I believe that it takes work to keep the spark alive. It takes work to keep a happy marriage. Date nights are just one of the ways to help remember why you feel butterflies and why just the thought of that person leaves you breathless and flustered with desire. Date nights ensure that you do not become distant, that regardless of children, careers or busy schedules, you take time out of the week where it is only about the two of you. A night or day to remember how the love started.

Date nights with the hubby are always anticipated. I look forward to Fridays every week because I know that it is when no one else exists but him and I. There are no distractions such as the internet or the phone. Those beloved hours are only about us.

I encourage you to have a date night weekly. In this economy, research your area for fun things to do with your significant other for free. I know that this summer there were free concerts, festivals, fairs, etc, which cost us nothing. You do not have to spend money to have date nights. I repeat, you do not have to spend money to have date nights so make sure that is never an excuse as to why you don’t have date nights.

I’ll end this blog post with one of my favorite quotes:
“So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday."

Marriage isn’t easy but it is up to you to ensure that the love for your spouse grows with each passing day. Choose to love your spouse, choose to have date nights, choose to spend time with each other, choose to laugh with each other, choose to flirt, choose to have hot sex, and choose to be the person you would want to be with. Never be the person to say, we just fell out of love. Make those words impossible to utter.

Date nights won’t fix everything but it surely is the step in the right direction.
