I am sitting on my balcony, restoring my soul to my right, a small table. There sits a tree, fern, and a vase with dried flowers on the table. The table has a beautiful glass top and is made of white wicker. Along each side of the table is two lovely chairs that match. It is a perfect spot to relax and restore. On the table is my cup of ginger and honey. I brew and have these most mornings excellent for the stomach.

The most beautiful thing about this is the great peace I feel sitting here. Above me are two hanging feeders, one for the birds and the other for the hummingbirds. I can hear the birds chirping. Below me, I can see the neighbours walking their dogs. Next door, they have cats, and they are outside most of the time. They like to nuzzle underneath my car for shelter.

There is something special about this morning. I had a visit from a frog. I can see where it is, but I hear it croaking makes me smile inside. The thing that brings joy is that I immediately thought there was no pond or water here, but there he was, big as life, announcing his presence to the surrounding world. I LOVED it.

I sometimes feel like that frog, coming out as big as I can be even though it does not seem like I should be there. How about you? Have you ever had a plan no one understood or a desire for something others thought was out of your reach? Sitting there that morning, just that frog and me, I got the message I believe God was saying to me, MeShel just leap.

I love this advice or instruction and wanted to share it with my readers. I always stress the importance of skincare. My grandmother first told me a little secret that her mother taught her. She said that this was the secret to looking young later in life It involves a bit of process that, if practised, I have seen first hand it works. First, always cleanse your skin morning and night, especially at night. It does not matter if you have makeup on or not. Just make it a habit, and the Second is always moisturizer twice daily. The other advice she gave me that was of great importance was never to go to bed with your makeup on. She said this will save you years off the face.
I was told that going to bed with makeup on can age the skin by ten years!!!!!! WOW, just think ten years can be taken off your face by following simple steps 1. cleanse morning and night. 2. moisturize morning and night.
Today we have so many products to choose from, so just do your homework and find what works for YOU. I have listed a few products that I personally use and like very much; if you like, give them a try. My grandmother used Ponds cold cream and vaseline and nothing else. Now, this worked for her. At the age of 104, she had barely any wrinkles at all. Okay until next time
Remember, YOU only get ONE face, so treat it well.

B’hue-tifully you

Your Natural Hair after sixty

Going natural isn’t always the easiest decision to make.

First, I encourage you to learn how to take care of your new head of super coily, silky curly short, water wavy and sometimes dry hair. Just realize it may be a substantial physical transition. Going natural can become your new challenge. But as it can be challenging, it is just as rewarding once you know your texture and how to use the right products for your particular hair type.

It would be a great time to reinvent yourself with a new year approaching. Remember, just because natural can mean chemical-free and to another with some chemical manipulation for ease of styling. It’s all good. You just do what makes sense to you and works for your lifestyle.

If you are looking to go natural here are some tips:

  • Get to know your texture and tailor your routine to this texture type.
  • Be patient; natural hair may take a longer time to style.
  • Use products that keep the hair hydrated, healthy, and manageable.
  • Wash and condition your hair in sections to cut down on tangles.
  • Use a sulfate free shampoo and a petrolatum/mineral oil free moisturizer to cut down on dryness.
  •  Be careful when using heating appliances.
  • Remember to protective style at night i.e slik head scarf or pillow case.

Follow these tips, and they can help alleviate some frustration when wearing your natural crown. Just keep working with it.

I have used a few products that I can recommend. Give some a try, and if you recommend, and let me know. Our hair can get thin, lose volume, and even change texture as we mature. Using a hair thinking serum on my scalp has helped tremendously. I use them along with the other products. Remember the 3 step system, which is Their 3 step system is to cleanse, Hydrate and define.

And also, remember what you fuel your body shows in our hair, skin and nails.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any products or have any questions.

Naturally yours,

Me’Shel

I received this wonderful e-mail from one of my sisters in the Lord, and it was the right time.  This coming New Year will be challenging, but it can also be my year of great fulfilment. Dreams that lay dormant, visions yet to come pass and promises can be kept. Change is about to happen, I believe time on earth is running out (according to Bible), but everything given to you and me can be the path.


The time is right for you and I both to just start. Beginning something new and stepping into the unknown is scary, but we will never know what is possible if we never do what is difficult. Your DESTINY and mine are already God ordained for us.  To impact your world around you. 

I am in great expectation just knowing that great things are in store for me. God has a plan, and I am going to fulfil it with his guidance. So why don’t you have that same expectation for yourself? 

Following is the e-mail that she shared with me. Take it and write it down and put it up somewhere you can see it daily, and no matter what, just remember it is your time for fulfilment.

Angela Jones sent a message to the members of the Woman WifeMother Conference!!! ——————–Subject: DivineDestiny-it’s Yours “2010”

10 representing “Divine Order”. It implies that nothing is wanting, that the number and order are perfect, that the whole cycle is complete. When you surrender yourself to God, you open the door so that God can work through you. God is Divine Love, Divine Light, Divine Power, Divine Wisdom, Divine Will, Divine Life, and Divine Order.

As 2022 approaches, it is my prayer that we all experience and walk in the Perfection of God’s Divine Order for our lives…….2021 ends…. let go of the past disappointments, past failures, past challenges, past heartaches, etc. and embrace what 2022 can be. Expect those witty inventions to come to you, that business plan to be clear, walking in your passion really takes off. And remember, 2022 can be yours to command.

Walking in Destiny,

Hi Guys! I recently received these 8 products from DIVAGLAM COSMETICS in Dixon, California.

Here is what I received :

Mineral Liquid Foundation
This shade is called “Warm Yellow”. Even though this was not in my skin tone, I still tried it at home (in my bathroom ..lol) just to test the texture. I like that it is creamy and lightweight. Quite often, liquid make-up tends to feel “heavy” or “cakey”. This one has a charming smooth velvet finish.
The unique thing about this foundation is that it comes with a mini-plastic-like brush, so you can actually “paint” it on for a more even finish.

Pressed Mineral Powder

This was in the shade of Medium Dark. However, it was still too light for my skin. It is a “pressed” powder; however, it goes from cream to powder. It comes in a “3 way” compact, pretty much like an Iman Foundation. The first part has a clear plastic showcasing the foundation, then under that, you will find a sponge and a mirror. Let me tell you … the sponge is really, really soft. You can tell that it’s a top-quality sponge. This is, as the name suggests,” compact”. Everything is included 

Fire Opal Eye Shadow

I loooove this shadow! It has a kinda “Rust Gold” thing to it. I know that sounds scary, but it is gorgeous. I especially love the fact that it comes in a bit of shaker, so it minimizes spilling. I also love the sleek clear container it comes in.

Eye-shadow and Shimmer

The eye shadow is in the shade “Chain Link“, and it’s #569. This is a dark greyish shade. This is great for a smokey eye, and because it’s not highly black, it can even be used to create a really subtle “Daytime Smokey Eye”. What I really like about this is that it has a shimmer in it. So if you are like me and like a slight shimmer in your eye shadow, you will love this.


The Shimmer I received is called “Heart Strings”, and it is #26. Ok, so I have this weird thing about smelling make-up, right? It smells like French Vanilla. But, it’s like really light gold, so when the sun hits it, it reflects beautifully. You can use this to create a daytime look or maybe a “Golden Goddess” Diva look .. like J.LO. 
Both products are available in what is known as “pots”. I actually prefer the individual pots to the compact shadows. It makes me feel like the shade was made just for me. 

Moisturize Rich Lipstick

I have to be totally honest, I’m not much of a “Lipstick Girl”, but I’m really starting to get out of my comfort zone and try different things. This one is called” Cherry Bomb”. It’s a sort of dark purple mixed with a bit of red. It’s not too red, nor is it too purple. It goes on like butter. You can feel your lips being moisturized. This lipstick is not one of those susceptible to “feathering”; it goes on and spreads out evenly on your lips. Also, it is packaged in a little Lipstick box, then the case itself feels like really soft velvet. Again the packaging is excellent!

Lip Polish

This Lip Polish is really “Glossy”. It’s kinda like the aftermath of Lipstick+ LipGloss all in one little container :-) I like that it’s reaaaaally red. So if you are looking to do a Dramatic Red Lip, I highly recommend this product. However, since it’s soo red, I would recommend applying it lightly.

Lip Liner

I received this Lipliner in Burnt Red. This is quite similar to a “Kohl lip liner”. However, it is a “True Color”, meaning that it goes on red and you only need to apply once; it is quite effective. No “Double Lining” is necessary. I especially love that it’s grey and not the traditional “black” colour, with the paint on the tip; I believe that beauty products should be pretty.

I must say that I loved each and every one of these products. I love where DivaGlam cosmetics is going with their line and the thought that went into developing and packaging these products. If you want the “Diva Look”, check out DivaGlam Cosmetics
