10 year challenge. Still going strong [since 2000] ❤️. Different lifestyle tho, much healthier. A bit more wrinkles and grey hair, a different kind of hair shade and thank God for those microbladed brows 😂. Also....Aiden was but 4 years old 🙈. He was such a cute kindergartner ❤️. Went down memory lane last night looking for a [this] photo 10 years back. So much fun! . . . #10yearchallenge #melsblisscuracao #growingwisernotolder #ageisjustanumber

That special moment at around 6am when you get to celebrate your [still hot and hip] mom’s @marthadepaulo birthday - 69!!! - with her again. . . Her birthday breakfast wish? 🍵🍵🍵 😆. So I made her a #homemade #cashewmilkmatchalatte ❤️. She deserves nothing but the best. All the dishes are leftovers (mostly clean 🤷🏻‍♀️) from last night’s cookout. #messykitchen is a reality in our life during breakfast and dinner time 👩🏻‍🍳. . . I forgot to get her a birthday card. She said this was way better 🤩. . . Next stop is celebrating it at her fave local foodie spot @numbertencuracao with friends and family 🙌🏼. I’m so blessed to still have my parents in good health when it could all be very different 🙏🏼✨. . . . . . . . #birthdaycelebration #melsblisscuracao #familygatherings #familymeanseverything

Always leave people better than you found them. #melsblisscuracao

These #adaptogenic powders by @sunpotion are my potent hormone balance helpers 🙏🏼. All ordered via @amazon .. . #pinepollen : “Also known as a potent aphrodisiac, it is a mega source of bioavailable vitamins + minerals and a very energizing adaptogen.” - @helloglowblog .. . #ashwagandha : “The easer of anxiety, depression and sleep issues. Ashwaganda has immuno-modulating effects that boost and regulate the immune system and lower cortisol levels.”- @foodmatters .. . #mucunapruriens : “Used to balance the nervous, reproductive and digestive systems, one of the best reproductive tonics for men and women as it supports normal fertility, healthy sperm and bolsters libido.” - @helloglowblog .. . #cordyceps : “Funguses with antioxidant properties include Reishi, Shiitake, and Maitake mushrooms. Each have adaptogenic, anti-tumor, and immune enhancing properties. Add a scoop of Cordycep powder to your smoothies.” - @foodmatters .. . #heshouwu : “Has longevity, anti-aging and beauty benefits. Builds healthy blood, nourishes the reproductive organs and increases sex drive.” - @helloglowblog .. . “Many people take adaptogens almost every day, while others will take them several times a day based on their needs (check with a professional for guidance about what’s right for you). Gaia does recommend that you take a day off from your adaptogens each week; if you’re using them for more than six weeks, to also take a full week off; and if you’re using them for six months, to take a full month off. (These little breaks are said to let the herbs really take effect in your system). Adaptogens are powerful, but slow-acting, so it can take up to a few weeks to notice a difference.” - @iamwellandgood . . . . #sunpotion #wellandgood #melsblisscuracao #helloglow #adaptogens #wellness #holisticremedies #hormonebalance #alchemy
