• Christmas ~ Prepare your food & list

    Have completed my 21 day challenge to a more youthful complexion, self esteem & lifestyle. Has been a few challenges along the way as hubby has been on work holidays, his way of eating is 50% healthy so was naughty a few times.

    The thing about changing a habit if we have a bad day, don’t beat yourselves up about it, next day back on track.

    RECIPES for CHRISTMAS & write your food list for the day. First thing of thought of this morning (it is 5.45am on Tuesday 27th November 2012) write my Christmas food list, the food that I will want to serve on Christmas day.

    FOOD LIST: Ham ~ Turkey ~ Pork ~ Lamb ~ Potato Bake ~ Bean Salad ~ Beetroot Salad ~ Carrot Salad ~ Green Salad ~ Rice Salad ~ Cheese platter ~ Fruit Platter ~ Cheese cake home made (hubby does the best will post recipe next monday) Now we have 10 people coming for Christmas lunch so will plan the amount of food needed

    Then I do the shopping list, I like fresh flowers so will be going to the Cararra Markets on the Sunday before for fresh Red Flowers for each table ~ sure you have the idea here. Hey any question comment below and will reply.

    1 X 250 Packet frozen spinach thawed
    60 gm Olive Oil
    1 x onion finely chopped
    1 x garlic glove
    1 x small red capsicum finely chopped
    1 x cup milk
    4 x eggs lightly beaten
    1 x 125 gm fetta chesse crumbled
    1 x 2 table spoon parmesan cheese
    1 x 1/4 cup basil
    salt & pepper to taste

    Lightly grease 23 cm flan dish
    Squeeze out excess moisture from spinach in paper towels.
    Heat Olive oil in pan ass onion, garlic & capsicum: cook until onion soft then add spinach cook 1 minute.
    In large bowl beat eggs, add cheeses, salt & pepper ( fetta cheese is salty so not to much salt) then add spinach etc and stir well. Add to grease dish or pan.
    Cook in 180 C for 30 minutes serve warm or cold with leafy greens & tomatoes.

  • The Youthful Queen Journey

    Why did I develop a skincare range in 2006? Interesting question to ask myself this today in September 2012.

    With my 26 years working in the beauty profession seeing women spending lots of money on products that where chemical based and no results seen. I had to do something. Crazy to see a woman spends $100 on one product and a week after using no change in the skin.

    There was a need for natural & organic products that gave results & were affordable. So I stepped up and did it, why not I said to myself. April 2011 re launched The Door of Youth Skincare branded as TDOY skincare.

    I love TDOY a simple 3 step 3 minute skincare product to ladies from all walks of like & ages, at a price you can afford.

    So excited to be launching The Youthful Queen Mentoring Programs for women in October will be inspiring and uplifting, watch this space.

    For today here are the benefits of using TDOY skincare and 2 videos to view.

  • Spring is here

    How has your first week of spring been? I started Zumba on Monday and going 3 times a week, have to say on Wednesday was feel so tired after, made me realize I do need exercise & balance in my life. I am 52 years young OMG where have those years gone!! So I am going to be selfish and take 6 hours a week out of my schedule as a business woman & wife for Zumba, the classes are only 1 hour time to drive there and was invited to join some lovely ladies for a coffee after.

    When I was pregnant back in 1990 my mum and I would walk 3 times a week near the beach and sometimes a coffee after. As a single parent for 17 years, my first husband and I separated when Corbin was 5 months old. I remember back to then working and not doing any exercise as who would look after Corbin & not much money for gym. We did go to the beach on weekends swimming & having fun. Our favorite place was kingscliffe would pack lunch, buggie boards and go down to the calm waters (safer with a small child). When my son got older & able to stay home by himself my best friend Robyn and I would meet at Coolangatta for a power walk along the beach.

    Beautiful memories x

    Women we are always so busy putting everyone else first. I understand we do have to be there as a wife & mother and have responsibilities, but come on ladies it is time to smell the spring air.

    When was the last time you went for a walk on the beach with the dog (if you have one or come pick up one of my 3) or take the family have some fun, through a ball what every makes you happy.

    Our attitude changes from winter to spring, we feel fresh and spring clean the house, our bodies and mind.

    Question: What do you want to achieve for YOU in the months of spring?? Come share it with me.

    We are what we concentrate on and what we concentrate on grows. Same as we are what we eat, how have you been feeling this week and what fuel have you put into your mouth??

    My latest power drink. Miso soup with a tea spoon of fresh tumeric powder. Buy the miso soup in individual packet of 12 at a supermarket, Tumeric powder I got at fresh markets. A great pick me up the tumeric will assist in these areas

  • More time in your day.

    To Do List that you write the night before what is happening tomorrow. I find it helps to write down the hours from when you get up to going to bed. List everything for 21 days and then you will find it becomes a habit. Don’t say it will take to much time, just do it and see the results.

    When I was working for an international cosmetic company this is what they taught me the benefits of a To Do list. If you want more out of your day get up and hour earlier. Ask yourself how much time to you spend watching TV? Now I have my favourite TV shows and don’t talk to me while they are on. But really we do waste a lot of time sitting on the lounge; with laptops today we can do both. Sitting watching a TV program is not quality time with your family. Have a movie night once a week as the family with some home made popcorn that is fun.

    Who makes the kids beds? Today we have doonas, so easy for kids to make there beds. Teach them from an early age to make their beds.

    What is in the washing basket gets washed, if on the floor it stays there.
    Funny story my son when he was about 13 year old, when he had a shower would sometimes leave underwear on the floor. I noticed this one day and just left them there. One morning getting ready for school I hear “mum I don’t have any clean underwear” really I said check the washing basket. No it was empty” well I don’t know where they are you best find them” Well he looked everywhere and couldn’t find them. I was laughing on the inside “look in the bathroom “no there not there he said. “Have another good look & there they were behind the door” So a lesson learnt that day.
    Delegate to family members to assist in the kitchen. When I was a little girl we all had to help mum at dinner time. One of us would set the table for dinner, one clear the table after dinner, one wash up & other wipe up. Today we have dish washer so easy.

    Today there is my husband & me at home. I cook and he does the dishes most nights.

    Everything has a home and that is where it needs to be. So when you use an item when finished place it back where it belongs.

    Paper work handle it once, when you pay a bill file it. If you have a business and the mail comes in open it read it and file in correct place. Newspapers if you want to keep them have a basket they go in, if not in the bin once read.

    Lost your car keys lately?? Have a key holder so when you come in that is where the keys go.

    I could go on and on with little tips. Will leave you with this “It takes 21 days for form a habit” so start something you want to change on the 1st September and let me know how you feel after 21 days.

    Have a youthful day
