Hello and welcome to my blog. I am a 45 year-old, single mom to two wonderful kids, a boy 11 and a girl 10. I was born in the Dominican Republic, raised in NYC, where we lived until a year ago and now reside in New Jersey.
I work full-time in Finance and I am brand spanking new to blogging. I enjoy writing and have always had plenty to say about everything, but I’ve never done so in this format; until now.
Most recently I’ve gotten interested in makeup and skin care as a way to help me feel better when I’m affected by the symptoms of a condition from which I suffer, called PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder). The two combined, have sparked a desire for me to write. Hence, this blog.
I want to use this blog as a forum to focus on women over 35 years old, where we can discuss anything from kids, health, jobs, makeup/skin care, education, friends, family, shopping…. well, you get the idea…basically everything.
I also want to use it as a creative outlet to help me with my health condition, due to which I have lost my self confidence, self esteem and have alienated myself from friends and family. I’m ready to make a change now!
I want to create awareness, because it affects so many women and we often suffer in silence. This blog will hopefully shed some light into what we suffer through monthly.
Although it is hard work, I am having a lot of fun with this blog and my hope is that you find it useful, whatever your needs or interests.
Welcome once again and ENJOY!!
