Jumpstart Your Morning

A busy job, lifestyle and home life make our lives so hard to really relax. If only we could enjoy the lazy Sunday morning wake-ups everyday! To be liberated from alarm clocks, ironing boards and, well – rushing to do everything before we go to work – is what we all dream about.

But here at MyFaceMyLife we believe every morning deserves to be enjoyed! We all deserve a great start to the day which will certainly pave the way for the rest of the day in positivity.

But don’t fret about having a sluggish yesterday – instead, always start afresh, or as Sidney Poitier famously said, “to simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed.

As we all know, it’s a noisy world out there. (more…)

Get Creative While You Hydrate

We’re not diet monks when it comes to sweet cravings, but while the occasional glass of sugary, ice cold soda may be okay to cool your throat and match your barbecue plate or lazy sun lounge this summer, we’re not too keen on turning to them constantly to hydrate – because dehydrate is what they really do!
