Ashes to diamonds?

I'm an avid reader of a certain "makeup guru" and just recently she posted a link to a website that actually processes bones from a deceased loved one (their ashes) into genuine diamonds.  WOW!  What has the world come to?  I don't know what to make of this since I believe diamonds are beautiful creations of nature but when you alter it from ashes, I'm not really feeling it.  Coming from a widow, I cannot see myself regurgitating my husband's ashes into diamonds.  I'd be flashing a fantastic piece of jewelry saying "Hey, look at this, he's dead!"  Appalling don't you think?

However, I did click on the link and request further information about it and can you believe they charge by the thousands, some even $5000+!  OMG!  Uh, no!  Here's the link if you're interested: lifegem.com

New Year traditions and beliefs

With the new year creeping up on us, I've pondered about cultural traditions that are practiced to bring in good luck, financial gain, new careers and healthy lives.  For a long time, my favorite tradition is ensuring that you have a substantial amount of money inside your wallet which in turn guarantees having money throughout the upcoming year.

However, year after year, all I ever want is the thought of knowing that my family is happy and healthy.  With the addition of Nyjah in my family, the notion of good health is even more dominant in my prayers to God.

The years added to my tenure has taken its toll on my physical being and it's time that I finally become proactive and change my lifestyle.  Here's to my 2013 resolution!

Happy New Year everybody :)

Happy Holidays and a special ANNOUNCEMENT!

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays!  In lieu of my absence from blogging, I've been pretty busy making memories with my first born grandson.  YES, I said it.....MY GRANDSON.  God said to me, "Let me give you the most happiest miracle I could possibly give you."

This bundle of joy was born on March 7, 2012 and he's the shining light of God's ubiquitous blessing in my life.  He's my constant reminder that God loves me, and that my family is a strong bond that some only dream of having.   Although he is nearly 10 months now, this is one of the very first pictures I took of him and I am sharing this beautiful picture with you.

May God bless each and every one of you who read this post as I am cyber-sending my love and prayers....lol  Most especially, during the holiday season, may you be safe and have a very prosperous New Year.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving everyone...there's so much to be thankful for. Sometimes the simplest of things mean the most to me. I'm grateful for so much! I'm sure to be posting photos up soon. I enjoy seeing nice photos on blogs. I still find pleasure in buying the cutest treasures that I would love to show you. I cannot say that I've become an organized person as I had planned but I have downsized a lot.

I wish I could travel and show you the world, sit in a nice cafe and eat delicate desserts. Instead, I'm a rather simple person living on a tropical island and I enjoy reading your blogs and going along for the ride as if I'm there with you :)

If this post reaches anyone who had religiously followed me from years ago....God Bless You! I'm hoping it reaches a dear friend, So Shiok! I received an email from her not too long ago but I never was able to post or reply.

With the rise and fall of Myspace, and the uproar of Twitter and Facebook...I've decided to return to my blog and continue where I may have left off. I miss everyone here and the sincerity of everyone's comments. FB and those other social networks has become dangerous, mean and impersonal. Oh, how I miss this place! Yes, I have been through A LOT! Would you like to hear about it?

I think....

...I'm back. It's been a whirlwind! Definitely (struggling for) some order and structure going on in my life at this time. Thanks to ALL of you who have verbally supported me through this. I've always had all of you in the back of my mind pondering when I'll be back.

Requests for my business to start back has gotten me to into operation mode, too. I must, I will, I can...survive.

Where is Purple Cupcake?

So where have I been these last few months? In hell! I have a lot on my mind, my heart and in my soul. I haven't been up to blogging or just....living.
I'm going through so much struggles in life right now and all I ask is for your hopes and prayers that I travel the right path and lead my children in a better direction.
Thank you for the many inquiries you have sent my way. I'm still here but just not up to responding. I've also not sent out a few items I was supposed to. I'm sorry! You've been so great to me and I've failed you. I'm really sorry! Please understand and when I get in the right state of mind, you are in my thoughts.
Until then........
