This week’s Summer Spotlight theme pulls from some of my favorite style motivation posts.

The best-ever foods to prevent aging....Eat loads of leafy green vegtablesNobody wants to age. Nobody wants wrinkles or a waddly neck. So, how do we battle the aging process? Well, the quickest answer is---the way your skin and body ages depends on how you treat your body, inside and out!Here's what most people don't get: your aesthetic beauty depends more on the strength of your digestion and metabolism, the quality of your sleep, how often you have a bowel movement, the foods you eat and the cleanliness of your liver than on scrubs, cleansers and anti-wrinkle creams that cost you your entire paycheck. When you proactively take care of your internal health, your external appearance will truly radiate with that envied youthful glow.In this two part series, first off we'll discuss the absolute-hands-down-best-ever foods to eat to prevent aging and boost collagen production and secondly I will explain to you the uber-importance of a healthy emotional state and abundant confidence in creating lasting beauty into your 50's, 60's and 70's!One of the most important ways to beat the aging demons is to eat as healthy and as clean as possible.Here are the top 8 dietary rules you need to follow to battle aging:

Not really, I bet.But I do bet that you may wonder how to wear anything with aplomb.
