Beauty Muse: Cece Winans

The lovely and talented Priscilla Marie Winans Love known professionally as Cece Winans is the Beauty Muse for this month. For those who do not know, Cece Winans is singer, songwriter, author, talk show host, and actress. I have been a huge fan of her for many decades now. Her music is forever playing on my Spotify Gospel playlist. My favourite track of hers is Mercy Said No! The track reminds me of my spiritual life every time I listen to it.

Cece Winans has one of the most beautiful faces I have ever seen. Her skin is flawless, her hair is always gorgeously made and her facial features are so striking. This woman has not aged a bit. It looks like she is ageing backwards. She is 56 years old but she looks way younger than that.

Beauty Muse: Cece Winans

I would love to be a fly on her wall so I can spot how she takes care of her skin. I won’t be too surprised to find that she doesn’t do anything out of the ordinary skincare routine. Most of the time, women that look this good at her age are just naturally blessed. Her interview with blackgospel.com confirmed my suspicions. Cece Winams was asked to share some of her beauty secrets, here is an except from the interview:

Well, I think beauty comes from within. I really do. I do laugh a lot. Even through rough times you’ve got to learn how to laugh. You have to find the joy. I really enjoy life, and I appreciate all that God has done. I would say that my relationship with God refreshes me every day. We all go through challenges but Jesus proves himself to be a wonderful Lord and Savior. So my faith is number one. You have to have your priorities straight.
And then other than that, washing your face and putting Vaseline on it. Nothing fancy. My mom to this day washes her face with Vaseline on it. It’s like, ‘’Wow, mom. If I can have a skin like yours when I get to your age, I would be doing good.’’ Just keep the things simple. I think women are so hard on themselves. We have to learn to really appreciate who God has made us to be, complement one another and laugh. 

I can tell she laughs a lot. She is usually laughing in her photos. I love the Vaseline tip as well.

What do you think of Cece Winans? Do you like her as a Beauty Muse? Are you a fan of her music?

 

 

Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and spring is around the corner. I am looking forward to the spring season. There is something about the nice spring weather that puts me in a fantastic mood. I am also very excited about Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends. The unexpected fashion trend at the moment is all about loungewear. Many of us are working and schooling at home, so loungewear is really all we need but we can add a bit more glam to this trend with the weather getting warmer.

Here are a few ideas for you to have in mind for Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends:

The Black Dress

The black dress is always a good idea for spring and summer fashion. I love having a few stylish black dresses. They work great for video calls and they are super easy to style. The piece I am wearing here is from Miss Selfridge and it is still one of my favourite black dresses. It is very comfortable and easy to style for a casual day out. I love it.

Prints are almost back in season and I am ready for it!  I am looking forward to wearing some more colourful pieces this spring. This stunning piece by Alala by Aken is one of my favourite print pieces. I love the colour and design. It is a fabulous light jacket to have around this spring/summer. I am looking forward to wearing more of it now that the warmer weather is around the corner.

Head scarf

This is one fashion trend I am really excited about. I have a couple of scarves in my wardrobe. They come in so handy for lazy hair days (which is really everyday now). I currently have eye on a few stylish scarves I am looking to get this season.  It is wonderful to know this fashion trend from the 50s and 60s is coming back in a big way this year.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same job for a long long time. It may be that we are good at that job so feel we owe it to ourselves and the company to stick at it. However, if you don’t love what you do it can start to affect our motivation, work ethic, and certainly our happiness and mental health. You should look forward to going to work and passionate about what you do for a living. There is more to life than just paying bills and going to work. Sometimes we may just be stuck at work out of habit, never having thought about the different opportunities out there and different avenues we can take. A lot of people also think once they get past a certain age that they are kind of stuck where they are. But this isn’t the case. If you were thinking of moving jobs but didn’t and carried on in 10 years you will be doing the same thing. If however, you move into something you enjoyed, 10 years down the line you will be thriving and progressing in a career that you are passionate about. Here are a few ideas on what you can do to change your career path. 

Make Money On Social Media

The rise of bloggers and influencers has come and people can make money on social media now. It is a very good way to make money if you are successful and some people have made millions just from promoting and growing an audience on social media. It may seem odd but it is in a way a form of marketing. If a business only has 3000 followers on social media but they can pay a fee for someone with 100,000 followers to promote their product to that many people then it works out well for the company. In some scenarios, companies have sponsored a social media influencer to promote something and then sold out within hours. That isn’t always how it goes but it is certainly one of the forms of marketing used in most businesses now. They know the influence social media stars have and what a positive impact they can have on a business. 

Look At Starting Your Own Franchise

If you have the money to invest in a franchise you can not only start a new career but you can be your own boss. You can choose your own hours and what type of thing you go into. It could be food-related, having your own restaurant or food stand. It is a great way to get family involved to help set up as well. There are so many options like car repair and even things like drug testing businesses where you can run testing labs and all different things. You can even take drug and alcohol testing courses to make sure you are successful in your new business venture. Starting up a franchise and becoming your own boss can be extremely rewarding. You won’t need to worry about not having time off for important family events, your kid’s plays and birthdays, and anything else you want to experience in life. You will be the boss so you can leave your trusted staff to do the job and enjoy life more. 

Help Out A Worthy Cause

If you are looking to change your career but also give back in a way you could look at getting a job as a fundraiser. There are all sorts of businesses like hospitals, nonprofits, and many more that need to raise money for their business to survive. They will also pay someone to come in and help them do that. Depending on the company you work for it can be quite a high-paying job. It would be your job to come up with inventive, creative, and cost-effective ways to help raise money to keep things afloat. Whether that is through a big ad campaign or something smaller like bake sales, car washes, and different things that people can do within their community. Not only will you be changing your career for the better but you will also be making a huge difference for a good cause and helping people who need it. 

These are some of the ideas of things you can do if you feel like you are at a point in your life where you need to start making changes. Changing your career can seem scary but can be so worth it.
