Editorial Reviews

Review

I am adding MIDDLE AGE BEAUTY to my selected few bedside books. With Machel's light to guide us home to our true beautiful selves, we can celebrate being the hero of our own story. ~ M.J. Rolek, Zen Life Coach and author of Mental Fitness, Complete workouts for Mind, Body and Soul

Machel Shull has compiled a treasure of secrets, insights and practical tips that are both inspiring and instructional. She has artfully drawn from her experience, wisdom, gift of writing, and most of all courage, to create the valuable gift that is a must-read for middle aged women who have ever questioned their true beauty. ~ Dr. Anthony F. Smith, Co-founder and Managing Director of Leadership Research Institute, Bestselling Author and Professor of Leadership

Mrs. Shull shares a wonderful personal account of maintaining a "natural" position of beauty. In an age of new treatments, methods, and synthetics, she sticks to the basics of how using nature is perhaps the best way to preserve physical health and beauty allowing the individual more confidence in themselves. ~ Dr. Keith Kanner, Host/Anchor,Your Family Matters Book & TV/Radio

Middle Age Beauty is wise and kind and deep, and invites the reader to see herself in the most loving and gentle of ways. Machel Shull writes from the heart, sharing her own journey with great generosity. Anyone seeking health and inner peace will love this book. (Luanne Rice, author of Little Night)

From the Author

Middle Age Beauty confronts the acceptance of face fillers and asks the reader to embrace their soul and health first before using synthetic methods to alter their natural self. Machel states, "I hope to shift the perception of middle age by highlighting the beauty of each individual's unique soul.  My ultimate goal is to bring  awareness to the side effects of synthetic facial treatments so women and men of all ages will think twice before going in for a procedure."
Dear Reader: 
I watched with curiosity and speculation about new synthetic methods that were hitting the market to help prevent aging. While many of my acquaintances bragged openly about their face fillers, I began to wonder if I should try this new method, too. (An Affirmative NO.)
In 2011, I crossed over the barrier of the Big-4-0. With great apprehension that I might shrivel up from an expiration date or be called acougar for marrying a younger man, I found out that the view from 40 never looked better.
What was the big fuss about being 40?
Why does it seem as if almost everyone dreads middle age? After fully saying no to any face fillers or plastic surgery tricks, the beginnings of Middle Age Beauty began to percolate in mind. Why was this time frame associated with 'nervous break downs,' affairs, and a time to lie about your age?
After working hard for more than 20 years to keep up my personal appearance because of my early beginnings as a model, I decided to share my inside secrets, vulnerable truthful moments about my own journey into the middle age chapter.
These simple methods will not cost you hundreds of dollars, and I will share why these tricks work. Learn how you can jump start your work-outs, eating habits and your beauty routine. You may also be thinking  twice before you ever have Botox again.
I share extensive research which reveals the 'nitty gritty' on this toxin. In my quest to find healthy answers, I interview experts on psychology, health, mental well being and meditation. Find out why it's possible to feel and look your best at any age.
I hope to shift the perception of middle age by highlighting the beauty of each individual's unique soul.  My ultimate goal is to bring  awareness to the side effects of synthetic facial treatments so women and men of all ages will think twice before going in for a procedure.
My basic guide to creating a more fulfilling inner life, embracing the smaller joys and making your own moments of glory that are a natural and FREE. (Also find out my favorite skin care products that are all listed under $20.00.)
I am now 42. I feel more alive, younger and happier than I did in my mid-thirties. Don't let your age define you. You define your age. You are what you want your life to be.
If you live in Southern California you might find me singing loudly in my car or creating my healthy moments on the hiking trails or spending beach time with my husband and son in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. I look forward to turning 50, 60, 70 and 80 and so on if I am  blessed with a long life. After all, follow the advice of  Coco Chanel: "You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life." 
― Coco Chanel

More About the Author

Machel resides in Southern California with her family in the beach town of Cardiff-by-the-Sea. She has been a public relations writer for eight years in the San Diego area. Machel is a columnist and a magazine writer for various publications in California. Her background as a previous face model and actress in Hollywood has built the strong foundation for her first book that will be released in 2013, "Middle Age Beauty." This book will reveal the 'beauty trinity' that is key to feeling great, being healthy and taking care of your soul. She has interviewed top experts in the world of health, soul, beauty and holistic healing, while weaving in her own personal experiences that share how to find the right balance during your mid-life journey. Machel urges women to avoid the popular trends that promote face fillers as a glamorous option to combat wrinkles. She uncovers the hidden dangers and facts that you should know before ever injecting your face with a foreign substance. You will also uncover the 'Three Dos' that all women should follow in order to stay in sync with their health, beauty, and soul.
In a world that is encouraging women to feel insecure about their looks and age, "Middle Age Beauty" promotes and empowers women to embrace their natural self first by seeking a more soulful, meaningful experience.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book, it took me by surprise! It was fun, light-hearted, and just a great all around read.

It's nice to hear a different perspective on modern day beauty, and that we don't need to spend exorbitant amounts on products that are constantly being shoved in our faces. With my three daughters already considering cosmetic procedures (in their 20's!) this book is timely and spot on! This is exactly the kind of message we need to be sending not only to women in their 40's-50's but also our youth -- my kids are always watching Insider, Entertainment Tonight, etc. and it's filling their heads with Botox dreams and other garbage. Sure I think that stuff has a place, but there is another side to consider....there is a strong likelihood that the answer lies in your soul!

Format: Paperback
Middle Age Beauty is a valuable beauty bible for women of all ages. Holistic in nature, it is concerned with the care of body, mind and soul, as the author firmly places the emphasis on the cultivation of inner beauty before all else. Written in an engaging conversational tone, Machel Schull is like a big sister whispering her cherished beauty secrets, while offering down to earth advice in the most honest and direct manner.
Early in the book, Ms. Schull presents a winning argument for the reasons a woman should never lie about her age, backed up by an interview with Dr. Tess Hightower. The aging process and women's attitude to it, is naturally the central focus of the book.
One of my favorite quotes is from Chapter 9, which deals with positive thinking: "When you struggle against reality you cause inner turmoil to your soul".
This phrase resonates with me as I have personally learned that acceptance is the first step to addressing any issues that arise in our lives.
Meditation, the benefits and how to do it are all explained in very simple terms. An interview with Zen Master Michiko Rolek provides further encouragement and helps demystify `mindful breathing'.
There is also a lot of fun in this book, as the author throws cold water on the hype fed to women by society and the beauty industry.
This is a lovely girly book that is also gutsy and full of cheer. In fact I would recommend it to anyone in need of a good boost to their self esteem. Definitely a winner!

This book is a little gem. I read it cover to cover in one sitting and made notes along the way. Inspired by Machel Shull's years of experience as a face model and her journey to discover (and embrace) the undeniable connection between inner and outer beauty, it's a must-read for women of all ages. Buy a copy for yourself and one for your best friend, too; it's a wonderful gift. Highly recommended.

So looking forward to her next book...♡
