Hello friends, it has been two months since I started this review and I can honestly say that I love the results and will continue using L’Oreal Paris New Age Perfect Cell Renewal. In this short video you will see my daily morning (before makeup) regiment using both the cream and serum. Each are light enough so that they don’t clog my pores nor make my face feel weighed down.
Please note that I used the cream first however, it is recommended that you begin with the serum followed by the cream … habits are hard to break once you start.
If you haven’t had an opportunity to try L’Oreal Paris New Age Perfect Cell Renewal yet, may I suggest you give it a try because I’m sure it will look good on you too!
HAPPY NEW YEAR ~ HAPPY NEW YOU!
Hello friends, I hope you are having a terrific day.
Last week after watching those family videos I started thinking more about my grandmother. I remember her looking at her hands and saying, “wow, my hands look so old“. When she’d say that, I would hold both of her hands in mine, give them each a kiss and say, “Mama, your hands are so beautiful”.
Keeping her hands smooth and wrinkle free was always a major concern of hers and now it has become one of mine. When I look at my hands I too see signs of aging, and although that isn’t a bad thing I do know how she felt.
Cleopatra’s Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter is a great treatment for minor burns, eczema, dark spots, discoloration, blemishes and dry skin which can make you look older. Pregnant women and new mother’s can also use pure Shea Butter to treat stretch marks. Cleopatra’s Choice is a fair trade product produced by women subsistence farmers in Ghana, Africa.
Because Shea Butter is good for preventing wrinkles and keeping your skin moisturized, I keep this container on the nightstand as a reminder to use on both my hands and feet before going to bed.
There is no overpowering scent to this long lasting, deep absorbing Shea Butter and it will not clog my pores or leave my skin feeling greasy. This winter I’ll probably use it on my elbows and knees before leaving the house in the mornings.
Cleopatra’s Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter can be ordered from Amazon.com and it will be quickly shipped so that you can have it before the end of sandal season.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!
This is a sponsored post for eShakti, for more information please read my Disclosure Statement located in the top tab.
When I was contacted by eShakti asking if I would be interested in doing another review my answer was a resounding, “yes”. The first dress that I had received was of good quality, had a budget-friendly price and shipped quickly, so it would be my pleasure to review another garment. In case you missed that review you can read it here.
My favorite style of dress is a sleeveless shift because of it’s versatility and I also find that it compliments my figure the best. I’ll wear this style any season, all year long, to work, church and out to dinner with hubby. A shift dress transitions easily from summer to winter, and when the weather changes I’ll throw on a blazer or sweater and thanks to KelasKloset have also worn one with a turtleneck underneath.
For this review I chose item number CL0027971.
When submitting an order to eShakti the sizes are based on actual bust, waist and hip measurements proportioned for women Petite to Tall and ranging in sizes from 0-36W. However, if your measurements do not fit into any of these categories it can be customized for an additional $7.50.
I chose this method when ordering and didn’t order one size up as I normally would, so when I received the dress and opened the box I was loving the cut. I loved it even more when I put it on and found that this style was perfect and that it fit my bust, waist and hips nicely.
This dress was chosen because I didn’t want to wear an uber fancy dress to my hubby’s High School Reunion, but after the death of his mother we weren’t able to attend. With not having that event to wear the dress I needed to find a suitable location for a photo-op that would accentuate the look.
I chose Elana’s Florist and Gift Shop on 500 North Broad Street in Middletown. This once small Floral Shop had been transformed into a more expansive and unique Florist and Gift Shop perfect for a photo op. I promised Elana that I would return next month to do a post for my holiday shopping special.
I know my friend and neighbor Corrine, who is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority will appreciate the Red Dress and Elephant background.
For me, the very best feature of this dress were the built-in bra strap holders. Every woman knows how irritating it is to have a bra strap sliding down her arm and then having to pull it up a million times.
The dress is made in India of Cotton and Spandex, is machine washable on a delicate cycle and should be hung to dry. The exposed easy slide brass zipper is also a nice accent.
eShakti dresses are affordable custom-made dresses that fit well and are made for the everyday woman such as myself. eShakti has been featured in numerous woman’s magazines and on daytime talk shows so check them out and sign up to receive sales notifications as well as specials with free shipping.
eShakti believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best and I definitely agree.
Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
