Life, at least the last half of it, has been hard. It doesn't matter why. And at the start, I welcomed the trials. They made me stronger, I told myself. I was resilient. A fighter. Capable and impressive, despite the challenges. I rolled with some punches, threw back a lot, too.
During the holiday marathon of parties, family gatherings, school events, shopping, wrapping, cooking, packing and general stress scramble, take time to take care of the person at the head of the pack - you!
Life's too short to settle for boring bath soap and clearly-cracking purses.

At 43, Jenna has firm feelings on her lifestyle and career choices. "I'm a model, actor, lifestyle host, investigative journalist, private investigator. I'm not a mom by choice, not married by choice. I know what I want, I know what I don't - and when it came time for me to undo the damage my skin had taken on from my work in the Caribbean, I knew Dr. Heller and his staff were the ones for me," says the self-described "English girl."
I didn't want to get Fraxel laser treatment because of a guy or TV commercials that make me feel like a crypt keeper. I wanted it because I've given so much "me" to so many, sometimes against my will and better judgement - and I decided it was time to take a little back for myself. Fraxel was a glimmer - or, more accurately, a laser - of hope... A
no-downtime way to undo some of the damage the last few years of immense stress and emotional trials had levied on my heart - and shown up on my face.
"I've never been the kind of person to get surgery, injections or even facials," says Gloria, 61, "but those lines right between my eyebrows - the '11s,' they really were giving me a mad, mean look. I kept thinking, 'someone in the grocery line is going to be worried I'm angry at them!' So, I got a little Botox from Dr. Heller to start - and then decided on a few other small treatments and procedures. I didn't want to look like I had anything 'done."
When Susan, 69, had a hysterectomy years ago, her body recovered - but her self esteem didn't. "I was very unhappy with what happened to my midsection," says the Valencia resident. "No matter what I did, I had a 'muffin top.' My stomach wouldn't go flat."
Shelly of Santa Clarita never really wanted breast surgery, but after three pregnancies, three breastfeeding infants and three "baby weight" losses, she had... three.

Laura, 57, has a message for women and men of every age. "When it comes to how you feel about yourself, how you feel when you look in the mirror, do what you need to do to build your confidence. Don't do it for your husband, or for society, or for anyone else. Do it for you - get it done! Plastic surgery... anything. Just do it. The mirror is unforgiving. Life is better when you feel good about yourself and how you look."
