Plus! How To Get Beautiful Skin, The Healthiest Nut You’ve Never Heard Of, & Why Dieting Is Bad For Metabolism!
This week’s Snapshot is dedicated to beauty. Yours, specifically. We’re going to get you looking and feeling fly (do they still say fly?) on the outside and inside! And what a perfect time of year for this conversation. The kids are just about back in school and you, dear mom, can finally focus on YOU. We’re starting things off with a makeup haul for women over 40, then a frank talk on how to get beautiful skin, followed by the healthiest nut you’ve never heard of, and closing with… why dieting is bad for metabolism. Because, again, beauty is just as much a feeling as anything else. And I need you feeling good, mmmkay?
Ladies, as the years evolve, so should your makeup routine – changing as you change. But it seems to me… the majority of women get stuck in a makeup groove that began in their teens or 20s:
- Mastering techniques that best enhance youthful features
- Sticking with the same products and brands for years and years
- Knowing exactly which days/hours of the week are dedicated to exfoliation
Yeah, been there. Done that.
But, the reality is our faces don’t stay the same forever. I mean, mine does. But most of yours won’t. (I kid, I kid!)
So – switching up makeup (and routine) to keep up with Father Time is instrumental if we’re truly looking to compliment our natural beauty.
For all kinds of in-the-know, like: my fave long wear lipstick / under eye concealer / foundation, super cheap amazing highlighter, why you should shop at QVC, and MORE… you must check out this video, stat!
Speaking of all things beauty… doesn’t it sometimes seem that the Universe plays cruel jokes on us girls when we need to look our best? Got a huge event – business dinner, wedding, or prom? Guaranteed you’ll wake up with a pimple on your nose or never-before-seen forehead rash. Rude!
Yes, makeup, as noted above, can be a huge game changer. But, ultimately, it’s a mask. Always covering up. In addition, you might find some luck with the crazy amount of face washes, anti-aging creams, and sunscreens that seem to hit the market on the daily. And let’s not forget our lovely CTMs: cleanser-toner-moisturizers. Oh my!
All that said, there is ONE ingredient missing from this mix that is most impactful to your healthy / radiant complexion! What is it? Well…
Hey, for reasons mentioned in the vid, when you follow 131 Method, one of the many amazing side effects is… glowing skin! Join me on this life-changing mission! Next cycle is about to begin on Monday, the 20th! Sign up now!
Most people know that nuts are packed with protein, good fat, and an assortment of heart-healthy substances, like: omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, vitamin E, and others. They’re stupid delicious and, in moderation, serve as a badass snack! That is why I’m legit freaking out over my newest find – which I’m dying to introduce to you! Why?
Ummm, they’re the healthiest on the market – with more fiber, protein, micronutrients than all other nuts – and nobody knows about them yet. For reals. At this time, you can only get them at 1 place online. WHAT the WHAT.
By the way, did I mention these particular nuts have less calories and fat than almost all others!?
Is the suspense killing you? Yeah, I thought so. SIMMAH DOWN NAH and hit that play!

You’ll find articles about diet mistakes and how it affects your metabolism, but what most people don’t realize is that diets – in general – are simply bad for your metabolism. How come?
Your body has its very own ‘comfortable’ weight. This is because we’re genetically wired to fight starvation. So, when you diet, there is a good chance your body is doing whatever it can to cling on to calories. It wants to get you back to your baseline. What’s worse? You’re going to feel even hungrier than usual as your body negotiates hard to persuade itself back to its ‘comfortable’ weight.
Hence, a vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting and why you’ll find many studies claiming that 95% (plus) of those who start diets gain all their weight back and more.
Sadly, metabolism is just one factor of many that is worsened when attempting a diet plan. Does this mean, though, that you should never diet?
In today’s final chat, please allow me to elaborate… spreading some clarity on gut health, hormones, diet phasing, dieter’s mentality, mindset, etc., and how YOU can finally get your health back!
Look, if this last Snap didn’t get you on board with 131 Method, then I don’t know what will!

You’re beautiful. Just the way you are.
