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

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,

Beauty is an outward expression of an inward condition…..Me’Shel

Mechelle sent me a few items to test out and I’m happy to say that this stuff rocks.  Not only is the quality exceptional, but she absolutely nailed every color she sent me.  I couldn’t be happier, if I had been the one personally choosing the items! Wow!  Plus, they came beautifully wrapped in purple tissue paper with a hand-written welcome card from Mechelle. 

1)  The first item is a full size, loose,  mineral foundation with SPF 15 in the shade “FAIR.”

“Minerals combine with antioxidants to provide flawless coverage while protecting skin from the sun.”  Excerpt From Bottom of Foundation Jar

This foundation provides easy, medium coverage and is a perfect match for my pale, winter shade.  The finish is not quite matte, but not glowy, either — rather, it’s a very soft, satiny look.  I’ve been using a synthetic hair, flat-top, kabuki style brush (like this) and application is a breeze.

2)   The second item is a gorgeous Healthy Lipstick in a shade called Mousse.  I absolutely love a deep, vampy lip and this stunning red-brown fits the bill.  Notwithstanding the delicious hue, Mousse also contains nourishing ingredients like sweet almond oil, shea butter, avocado oil, grape seed extract and green tea extract.  Healthy & hot lips, much?

The lipstick packaging is fantastic — the texture is rubberized, similar to Nars’ packaging.
The top of the lipstick lid is actually a tiny window, so you can see the lipstick shade without having to look for names on the bottom or frantically tearing open lids in the middle of a manic morning.
This chocolate shade is dreamy and completely buildable, if you want to deepen it, which you’ll see I did in the pix to follow.

3) Mineral Gems in a shade simply called “Gold.”  This loose pigment has three ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide and iron oxide.  Doesn’t get any purer than that, folks.  The hue is a saturated, complex, shimmery,  medium gold.  I like to use a lot of golds in the summer . . .  looks so bronzed-beachy.  This one’s fantastic.  It comes in a transparent, hexagon-shaped container with a sifter and a silver lid.

4)  The final item is a pressed pigment called “Chain Link.”  Deep grey with multi-colored sparkles, this shade was made for the smoky eye, which I sport frequently.  These gunmetal hues often lean to the blue side on me (which I adore) and this one is no different.

So, this weekend, we’re celebrating Love Muffin’s birthday and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to get all hotted-up and party hard in thanks for another year of togetherness.  I prefer to celebrate birthdays and such in week-long jaunts, rather than just one measly day, so I’ve been experimenting with some potential dance/party/laugh/cry/rejoice looks for the coming days.

 Below is a bold lip possibility and afterward are a mix of pix where I digitally and artistically played with the color and light.  Enjoy!

(Note: in all of the pix below, I’m wearing the following DivaGlam products: Fair foundation, Mousse lipstick and Chain Link eye shadow.)

This shot shows a good color-representation of the lipstick, Mousse, with a Buxom lipgloss on top for shine.
Here you can see the eye shadow, Chain Link. On the inner corners is a cream shadow called Intergalactic. They make a pretty mix.
