#takeaQfrommom Mother’s Day Contest

The media is extremely influential when it comes to how we, as women, define beauty.  We must remember that beauty is much more than skin deep and it’s important to recognize the role that your own personal influences had, and still have, on your positive perception of beauty.  These influences often come in the form of your mom or mother-like figure, women who empower you to make your own beautiful and who often help us to uncover and identify the most important beauty of all – inner beauty.

It’s time to start thinking differently about fat. Men and women, especially those in middle age and beyond, need to understand that fat is actually very important in maintaining or restoring youthfulness in their face.
