FIFTY, GRANDMOTHER AND I LOVE IT 💞

Nobody wants to look older and people will go through extreme lengths to sip from the fountain of youth.

Prevention is much easier than turning the hands of time, and there are many simple habits that I’ve adopted to help keep my face and body looking soft and supple. This includes lifestyle, fitness is a non-negotiable priority, practicing good skincare, and after I’ve reached 35 I’ve considerate some medical treatments.

While I agree with many of the concerns people have, about the pressure on women to look younger, I also think it’s perfectly natural to want to look as youthful as you feel inside. There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to seem knackered when you are, in fact, full of energy. I see no problem with seeking to restore the natural glow of your 20s, even if that means exploiting the artificial light of good skincare, treatments and makeup. It is perfectly reasonable to want your brows to stay where they were, and not gatecrashing your eyelids. Those who say Botox looks weird are talking about bad Botox, the kind you know is there. Administered correctly and in moderation, it can be fantastic and undetectable.

Preventions I did, that maybe can help you too:

If you smoke stop it immediately ( I personally never was a smoker, but saw what smoking did, to many of my class mates )

Smokers’ skin ages faster. The nicotine causes blood vessels to narrow on the surface of your face and hands, which impairs blood flow. As a result, the skin is deprived of oxygen and other nutrients that help it to stay looking young. The 4,000 chemicals in cigarettes also damage collagen and elastin, the two main fibres that help skin retain elasticity. Even if you can’t see the damage now, you will.

I Wash My Face Regularly

That’s clear🙂 I hope to everyone..if you need extra explanation check my previous post.

Put on Moisturizer Every day

Talking with many of my friends and many of you, that are writing me, I’ve understood that hardly anybody does it. Mostly the whole treat finishes with your face and neck, but actually treat that is obligatory, is the one that includes the whole body. Applying a moisturizer helps keep your skin looking hydrated and boosts collagen and elastin production. Treat your skin well by using quality cosmetics that are non-comedogenic (essentially, something that won’t clog pores and/or otherwise make your skin more breakout-prone). Quality doesn’t mean immediately expensive. I use a lot just a simple Nivea body cream ( when I need to dress in short time as coconut or argan oil takes more time to sink in).

Avoid or Limit Sun Exposure

Even I’m more than 8 months during the year, exposed to the Sun, I always remain protected in the shadow. When you expose yourself to the Ultraviolet radiation the collagen and elastin fibers that keep your skin firm are broken down. This leads to wrinkles and an aging effect on your body and face. Therefore, Im always wearing a high SPF sunscreen (50SPF) whenever I’m going out and putting on a hat to protect (above all my face and neck from Sun exposure). It may not seem cool to cover up when you are young, but I can assure you, that you will be glad you did as you get older.

All I wrote above is what you’ve heard already so many times, and you expected to hear it from me too? Isn’t it? Well, this all above listed makes only 20%. !!! of slowing down the aging process – and sustaining the beneficial qualities of a youthful life. That is why you all see me as something unusual. There are so many wealthy, world famous women, that following ( x10 times) all above listed, didn’t arrived to wished results. Why?

The biggest secret of all!! But seriously. Why nobody who knows about it want tell you? Have no idea.

Look what I’ve find out after 3 years of my own research:

Telomerase, an enzyme naturally found in the human organism, is the closest of all known substances to a “cellular elixir of youth”. Telomeres, repeating sequences of DNA located at the ends of chromosomes, play a key role in survival and aging. Preserving the length of telomeres has been shown to extend cell lifespan, and many researchers now believe that protecting telomere length holds the key to slowing down the aging process – and sustaining the beneficial qualities of a youthful life.

Bruce Lipton, PhD helped me to link it all.

He is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief ( I’ve already mentioned you this book, read it 🙂 ). Here is what I’ve learned from him: The new sciences quantum physics and epigenetics are revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter, challenging established scientific theories and prompting a complete re-evaluation of life as we have known it.

Placebos: The Power of Positive Beliefs

The placebo effect should be a major topic of study in medical school. I believe that medical education should train doctors to recognize the power of our internal resources. Doctors should not dismiss the power of the mind as something inferior to the power of chemicals and the scalpel.

Drug companies are studying patients who respond to sugar pills with the goal of eliminating them from early clinical trials. It inevitably disturbs pharmaceutical manufacturers that in most of their clinical trials the placebos, the “fake” drugs, prove to be as effective as their engineered chemical cocktails. It is clear that effectiveness of placebo pills is a threat to the pharmaceutical industry.

The fact that most doctors are not trained to consider the impact of the placebo effect is ironic because some historians make a strong case that the history of medicine is largely the history of the placebo effect. For most of medical history, doctors did not have effective methods to fight disease. Studies suggest that even when people know they’re not getting a drug, the placebo pills still work.

Nocebos: The Power of Negative Beliefs

While many in the medical profession are aware of the placebo effect, few have considered its implications for self-healing.

If positive thinking can pull you out of depression and heal a damaged knee, consider what negative thinking can do in your life.

When the mind, through positive suggestion, improves health, it is referred to as the placebo effect. Conversely, when the same mind is engaged in negative suggestions that can damage health the negative effects are referred to as the nocebo effect.

In medicine, the nocebo effect can be as powerful as the placebo effect, a fact you should keep in mind every time you step into a doctor’s office. By their words and their demeanor, physicians can convey hope-deflating messages to their patients, messages that are, I believe, completely unwarranted.

Our positive and negative beliefs not only impact our health but also every aspect of our life. Henry Ford was right about the power of the mind: “If you believe you can or if you believe you can’t . . . you’re right.”

Now back to Telomerase and his importance.

Studies have shown that this specific part of DNA that keeps track of how many times a cell has divided, slowing down the aging process thanks to a positive belief and placebo effects.

As many researchers now believe that protecting telomere length holds the key to slowing down the aging process – and sustaining the beneficial qualities of a youthful life, consequently the effect of positive or negative belief is directly responsible. When we are happy and optimistic our body produces positive pheromones that keep protects the telomeres from being snipped away. Think about positive thoughts that produce positive effects like varnish on nails. You cannot change the nail, but you can change the varnish again and again. What you’re doing is refreshing and replacing the old section with new protective molecules at the telomeres.

While you’ll find in every woman’s magazine, a lot of articles regarding “miracle” creams, expensive treatments, you’ll find none on the subject I wrote🤗. How many of you would come home from the store after spending an entire paycheck on creams and serums that promised the moon? American women between 30 and 50 lavish more than $1 billion annually on buying hope in a jar – so are we women just victims of marketing, being led like sheep to the cash registers? I saw many comments under articles from all over the world, written about me, (just google my name you’ll see them too 🙂 with different theories and rocket estimated amounts, they believe, I spend on “best creams”, massages, cosmetically treatments.. preventing me growing older. If that would be the true I would live in beauty salons without seeing daily light. That always makes me smile. Remember lies are complicated, the truth is always simple.

To so many, growing up and growing old is scary, boring, and even tragic. Though our bodies may not be as young as they used to be, there are some things that are far more important than gray hair or a flat stomach. Things seen, lessons learned, wisdom gained, friendships made, the love of a growing family tree, evolving perspectives—these are all blessings of being alive. After all Being Alive. Maybe we can choose to embrace the joys of growing older, because aging is a privilege not granted to everyone. My son Stefan Miljanovic, who passed at age of 23 in traffic accident, two and half years ago.. didn’t have that privilege.

My point is: That you can choose what to see. You can live a life of fear or live a life of love. You have the choice! But I can tell you ( and I’m at the same time a living proof for it: As I’m survivor of War and NATO bombing, cancer survivor, operated 2011. …And mother who survived the death of the most beloved son) That, if you choose to see a world full of love, your body will respond by growing in health. If you choose to believe that you live in a dark world full of fear, your body’s health will be compromised as you physiologically close yourself down in a protection response.

Positive thoughts are a biological mandate for a happy, healthy life. In the words of Mahatma Gandhi:

Your beliefs become your thoughts
Your thoughts become your words
Your words become your actions
Your actions become your habits
Your habits become your values
Your values become your destiny

Love you my beautiful divine souls

Love you just the way you are ❤️

I’m too grateful to be hateful. I am too blessed to be stressed. If you believe it’s impossible you will finish where I started

Be realistic: You can look in the mirror and find a million things wrong with yourself. Or you can look in the mirror and think, ‘I feel good, I have my health, and I’m so blessed.’ That’s the way I choose to look at it.

It is very complex to explain to all of you, that never tried to live a healthy life style, how to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle / body shape

I’ve decided to divide this topic in several fazes, and present you each week one of it. In that way, you can adopt and apply ( hopefully) all of them without extra stress and feeling it’s too much and you can’t handle it.

You don’t get into amazing shape by drinking moderate amounts of alcohol, eating moderate amounts of junk food, and exercising moderately a couple times a week. (As You don’t become a billionaire by working 40 hours a week). Extreme results require extreme efforts.

True change starts at the end of a comfort zone! I exercise all my life. For me it’s a part of daily routine, as washing my teeth. Since I was 10 years old which makes it 40 years of active sport ! 🙂 And the upside is, if you have already built a strong foundation over the years, it’s not that hard to get it back. It’s never too late to learn how to be fit and beautiful. People who start exercising later in life gain many of the same health benefits that lifelong exercisers enjoy. If you’re having trouble developing an exercise routine, here are some helpful tips to motivate you as well as to maximize your workout.

I exercise on most days, but Im mixing it.

I’m thoughtful about my meals.

I eat a lot of protein.

I don’t eat bread.

Im eating ASAP in the a.m. max 45 min from the moment I wake up.

I front-load my food.

I eat regularly and always have snacks ( fruit, almonds..to avoid going overboard, I try to keep things like candy and cupcakes out of my home. Out of sight, out of mind, and not in my mouth).

I only indulge in unhealthy foods when

I’m out.

I actually drink alcohol moderately (but better not at all).

I think of food as fuel — it’s what my body needs for the activity level I’m going to experience after consumption. It’s why often eat non-traditional morning foods like quinoa in the morning, then end my day with a lighter meal, like an egg white omelette with veggies.

I try new things in the gym ( at least one totally new workout each week).

I work different body parts on different days.

I watch the clock during my workouts and waste no time.

I don’t mess with my phone while I’m work out ( not taking my phone with me while in the gym).

As I’m traveling a lot I find random ways to stay active when there’s no time for a Real Workout.

I don’t really rest on rest days.

( I am actually pretty active while not exercising, running around and producing different content )

I don’t let busy days turn into cheat days.

( On days I don’t have time to workout, I make sure I eat very clean. But when I’m fully working out I let myself to take spaghetti or slice of pizza)

It takes a motivation and discipline to stick to your plan on a long run. Mass majority of the people are in terrible shape, so you have to look at where you’re starting. Make fitness a non-negotiable priority. Like eating, breathing and sleeping. We just need to adopt an overall healthier lifestyle. That entails the obvious, but all too neglected habits of, eating better quality foods, sleeping more, breathing deeply and finding happiness to live a more balanced life. Are you the one of those people who spends a lot on clothes but little on food?

You need to have three things in place to stick to the new lifestyle.

First you need a purpose. If you want a better life, physical movement is the “ON” switch. Secondly: you need to plan all your workouts in advance — what you’re going to do and what time you’re going to do it. It’s like making an “appointment with a healthy choice” that can change your life for the better. And third, you need people to be accountable to. Being in great shape is easy when friends and family who want the same things, help to hold you accountable.

Always keep in mind:

I’m taking a good care of my body. .. It’s a vehicle for my soul. 🙂

That’s all philosophy.

Next topic I will dedicate to is: food. The shortest I can tell you for now: I don’t eat refined sugars or flour, or any foods that have had pesticides sprayed on them. … but since long time ago.. since the time, when dieting was not fashion too 🙂

I’m eating avocado a day, while making sure that I’m getting as many nutrients as possible with every meal. I rely on an all organic diet that consists of mostly vegetables and meat, fish, sea fruits ..staying away from processed foods.

Lots of fruits and water

Fresh juices

No alcohol no cigarets

Eat the food that has only one ingredient!

The next whole topic will be how to maintain your skin (here is the shortest introduction to it):

If you want to start the day off right, you need to begin thinking about your skin the night before. That’s my philosophy. First, I’m taking all care to be sure that I have removed my make up completely ! before going to bed. My mother has been telling me this since I was a teenager, now I repeat it often 🙂 but that’s really the best tip. Than I apply one evening Shiseido bio performance cream, the next one pure Argan oil or virgin Coco oil. You can find it in the various shops that sell natural products. Treat your skin well by using quality cosmetics that are non-comedogenic (essentially, something that won’t clog pores and/or otherwise make your skin more breakout-prone). Quality doesn’t mean immediately expensive. Seek out products that will keep your face hydrated but not make it oily. Remember that what is an almost-magic potion for one person may not work at all for another In the morning just a light hydrating cream and make up..

Don’t forget to moisturize 🙂

We are all the architect of our own biology

Dr Bruce Lipton former researcher

Stanford university wrote the book the Biology of Belief the book that I strongly recommend

Pls feel free to write down in the comment section all your suggestions of the further Topics as well as your impressions.

Love you my beautiful divine souls. Love you just the way you are 💋❤️

Don’t be afraid

Just don’t be afraid

When you turn on the news and you get all the downloads what’s going on in the world, it’s so scary.. But, here is something you can’t hear: Science is recognized that we are now on the 6. Mass Extinction on the planet! Mass Extinction event is were between 70%-90% of all organisms on the planet disappear. Five times already happened, in the history of Earth. Today we are loosing species even faster than any other previous Mass Extinction. When happened to the dinosaurs, the Earth was hit by the comet who changed environment, they couldn’t survive and dinosaurs disappeared. In previous 5 times causes were  massive geological activities like earthquakes or volcanoes. Today we are in the 6. Mass Extinction. Since 1970. when they  did the survey how many animals are living on the planet, 66% of the animals are gone! 2/3 of the animals are gone! 90% of the fish! Germany just reported after 27 years of studies 3/4 of the insects are gone!! We are now truly (as science recognized) in Mass Extinction. But the issue is whats the cause of Mass Extinction? Human behavior. We are undermining the ecosystem of life. Not only we are destroying relationships between the people all over the planet, we are destroying our relationship with the planet itself. We pollute everything and we are facing Extinction, in less then 100 years. They already know that won’t be fishes in the oceans until 2048! Planet Earth with no fishes, in few years from now. We are in that Extinction. We are causing it. What’s gonna save us? We have to change how we live on this planet. Not only how we live with other human beings, but how we live with every part of ecosystem, even the natural resources. We have to change our behavior. But first, we need to change our culture, because our culture is where behavior comes from. The way how we lived as civilization on this planet is: self-destructive. We can not build the world we want to survive in, on this foundation that is the cause of the problem. That means we have to change the civilization? We are in a Chaos faze, where we are bringing down an old structure that is causing us Extinction and involving the new structure that will support our survival. In this process means that: One is coming down and New one is coming up. What we are focusing on, in all the news is, what makes us feel: Oh my god, the world is falling a part!

Great!

If it doesn’t fall a part, we will face the more serious problems that you can ever imagine. The only way we will be able to survive is that old one comes down and the new one comes up.

The “ME TOO” reality! This is an evolutionary change, that means we are not going back. The issue of race and religion were just been fostering under neath of surface, like an abscess or wound and now has broken open in to the public. The public is saying: We don’t want this. So it’s forming the new way of living, while the old one is coming down. You can focus on news and all that negative stuff or you can say: Something new is coming, something better. Important part is, not to be caught in the negative perception of something that is actually profoundly powerful.  We are going some place. And if it doesn’t fall down, that would be the worst. I’m not fan of the politics, governments, but their failures are going to participate a change.  And those changes will collectively bring people from all over the world together. The millenium generation.  People 40 years old and younger are the future of this world. Unlike their parents who only lived in their local world, (what ever idea they got, was from the newspaper or local tv) that shaped their world view. Millenium generation, they are global, they are on the internet. They comunicate with no borders. Everybody are just “The people on the internet”. And this is bringing down old way of living. Because the community of the internet is supportive and we are all working together in this way. It’s like a nervous system that is hooking together several  billion people, to recognize a unity of life,  rather than the separation, conflict, walls, borders.  The walls are separating people from each other. The walls are coming down. New world is based on the new information. The old stories that were created, it doesn’t work any more. Revolution can only be done inside of ourselves. We have to change. Only us. Our personal comunications, this internet platform too, is the way of the future. That is why I am here as Realfashionist. Love you my beautiful divine souls, no metter where are you come from, no metter of your race or religion. ..Love you just the way you are❤️

What we learned about Princesses while visiting Disneyland

Small Talks help me always learn something new from my granddaughters
My everything ❤

Our trip to Disneyland was all about research. Topic: Disney princesses. Here is what we learned from them :

First thing:  A KISS BASICALLY SOLVES EVERYTHING! 

The fact that when the princesses are in real trouble, the thing that saves them is simple. It’s a kiss. But not a kiss from just anyone. They need kiss from the man of their dreams (who just so happens to be an ultra wealthy prince)

2. THEY ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR PRINCE CHARMING TO SAVE THEM

What are they really searching for when it comes to their life? Do they want a decent career? Do they want to save the world? Do they want to find ‘meaning’ in all that they do?  They want just one thing — a guy. That’s all that matters to them. Their sole goal in life is to find Prince Charming and run away to marry him.

3. OR WORSE STILL, SELL OUT THEIR FAMILY FOR HIM

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, Ariel was not the only princess who messed things up for a guy. Can we all take a moment to have a little chat about Pocahontas? She was supposed to be so in touch with nature and the values of her people, right? Well, if that were really the case, why on earth did she go ahead and start messing around with John? Pocahontas, a real person who was treated shamefully by the English settlers, kidnapped, and forced into marriage, and fictionalize her story to the point where it became a romance and a tale ostensibly promoting equality between races.

4. THEY OFTEN ISOLATE THEMSELVES FROM OTHERS

I am ‘Team Belle’ all the way. The girl is a reader, she’s smart, and she’s sassy. She’s everything a woman could be, and yet she still screws herself over time and time again. So, she lives in a small town where the people are equally small-minded. I get that that must suck on a whole load of levels. No one is trying to deny that here. But, I mean, she could have at least tried to make the best of it. Instead, she decided to make sure that she alienated herself from just about everyone around her. I’m not talking about just a few people. She was distant from everyone! Plus, she’s not the only one who did that. When you think about the many Disney princesses out there, a load of them had this issue.

5. THEY TEND TO IGNORE GOOD ADVICE

And when the princesses aren’t just isolating themselves from the general society, they have another bad habit. When someone gives them advice, rather than being grateful for the help, they decide to do the exact opposite. This is a serious problem for most of them. I’m all for making your own way in the world and listening to your instincts, but there is a limit to that. When it comes to making dangerous and, frankly, stupid decisions, these girls seem to be pros. There is honestly no need.

6. THEIR BODY SHAPES ARE… UNREALISTIC.

They are beautiful — no one is denying that. Nor could they. But then again, there is a serious issue with their body shapes. I’m sorry, but there are few women out there who have this kind of shape of body. They look as though they are a guy’s idea of the ‘perfect woman’

7. PLUS, THEY CAN BE KIND OF VAIN AT TIMES

there are some princesses like Jasmine!who tend to be kind of obsessed with their looks.

8. THEY PROMOTE ‘DAMAGING STEREOTYPES’ OF WOMEN.

People have done actual studies on the affect Disney princesses have on young girls. You won’t be surprised to find that the results were kind of damning. For example, one recent study from researchers at the acclaimed Brigham Young University found that these movies impose gender stereotypes on young girls. What’s more, they copy the behavior and start to believe that they have to adhere to those values.

9. THEY HAVE DANGEROUS RELATIONSHIPS WITH GUYS

case of Beauty and the Beast for a moment here. We all know the story all too well. The beast locks up Belle’s father first, when he accidentally trespasses on his land. It’s a little messed up, but whatever. When Belle comes to help him, the Beast says that the only way is if she takes her father’s place. She agrees. So, she starts her relationship with the Beast as his captive. Um, does no one else think that that is a bit of a shaky foundation for a real life relationship? I know that I do!

Overtime, she begins to love him (while he is keeping her prisoner, of course!) and the two get together in the end. Well, that sounds a whole lot like Stockholm Syndrome if you ask me.

10. THEY LOVE PLAYING THE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS 

Having the women in trouble is one thing, but making the story so that the only way they can be ‘saved’ is to find a man… that’s quite another.

What’s more, rather than dealing with your own problems, its quite alright to just sit around and wait for a guy to do it for you. I’m sorry, but that seems a little backward.

11. THAT’S WHEN THEY ARE NOT BEING PREACHY, OF COURSE

When these ladies aren’t playing the whole victim role, they like to go for another one. There are definitely instances in which these characters decide to act like complete and utter know-it-alls. They aren’t exactly the most likeable characters in the world for that. Not by a long-shot. What’s more, they often have no basis for their information or opinions. They just believe that because they think something that it must be right. Does that not sound a tad arrogant to you? It seems like they have superiority complexes at the very least.

12. THEY CAN BE RUDE AF AT TIMES TOO

If you pay close attention to what some of them say, you will notice one really strong theme. They love to put people down. In fact, they seem to have absolutely no issue with dishing out the insults. Yep, while they are playing victims, they are keen to tell everyone else just how terrible they are too. Um… Talk about reflecting your own insecurities onto other people.

What does this teach young girls? Oh, that’s right. It teaches them that being smart is the same thing as being cruel. Take the example of Belle.. She just loves putting everyone in her small town down and telling them how much better she is than them.

13. THEY RELY ON MAGIC TO SAVE THEM TOO OFTEN!

it’s not just men that can save the Disney princesses. Oh no, there’s one thing that we’ve been overlooking all along. These women can be saved by one other thing that you haven’t thought of just yet. That’s right — it’s magic!

14. THEY TALK TO ANIMALS… WHICH IS..

Snow White who talks to just about every animal out there. There’s Cinderella who talks to mice, even though they clearly can’t understand her. There’s also Mulan who talks to an invisible dragon and… a flea. It seems to be a really common theme among these ladies. While they are isolating themselves from the rest of the world, they find solace in animals. Um, that’s not healthy: using animals as a barrier; a replacement for the social interaction they don’t have.

Consider these classics in which a character has either lost a mother or there is no mention of her at all:

“Snow White”

“Bambi”

“Cinderella”

“Peter Pan”

“The Jungle Book”

“The Fox and the Hound”

“The Great Mouse Detective”

“The Little Mermaid”

“Beauty and the Beast”

“Aladdin”

“Pocahontas”

“The Hunchback of Notre Dame”

“The Emperor’s New Groove”

Why is that?

Still trying to figure out why…
