    For me outer beauty is often coinciding with inner beauty. It has been on my heart for years to host 4 girlfriend getaways yearly..open to friends and their friends, and new friends. The purpose of the weekend would be to pamper each lady outwardly, at the same time using the weekend to be an encouraging and motivating force in their lives. I have a background in meeting planning and site inspection which would help to accomplish this. Would love to have my first GF getaway weekend this November in FL. @projecthope7

    RELAX! Take time out from the chaos and just enjoy life preferably on a daily basis. A simple way that my family does this is a daily picnic on the patio. It changes the family dynamic of the family dinner. WE unwind, relax, enjoy the simple beauty of the garden surrounding us. The(not so) simple art of relaxing lowers the blood pressure, releases the tension and makes you happier. When you are happy, you SMILE more and your outer beauty can’t help but shine.

    This year is my boot camp year. I started in February, counting calories, doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred Dvd and riding the exercise bike for an hour five days a week. I even have enlisted the complete cooperation of everyone in the house. They make sure that I can have the house to myself for a half an hour for my exercise video, and even the cats and dogs disperse when they hear the music cue up. LOL

    But being really tightly focused on those things, tends to make me forget the other little things that might actually help make me feel better too. I haven’t had a hair cut since last Christmas, and I’d love to go out and but some makeup and moisturizes to add to the agenda. Thanks for the chance!
