Hey Guys!!! It is officially summer ☀️ and I wanted to share my 5 must have makeup products I use almost everyday in the summer. I am no makeup expert, but I do want to share my favorite tips and tricks!
I tend to not wear as much makeup (most the time i never wear it) in summer because it gets so hot here in Texas and I am outside and in the pool a lot of the time, but when I do wear makeup these are my GO TO products
1. Better Than Sex Mascara (waterproof)
2. Mario Badescu Facial Spray
3. Benefit Gimme Brow
4. Tart Pro Glow
5. bareMinerals Pro Bare
I often just wear the must haves, but do add bronzer and blush and sometimes sparkly eyeshadow on certain days, I will list those in my next 5 MUST HAVE Summer Products(:
See you next time,
Hey guys! Happy Sunday and Happy Mothers Day to all you mommas out there.
In today’s post, I wanna talk about us women and what all we are pressured to do and be. This morning my church service smacked me in the face. I have always understood that I am unique, but I never entirely saw it until now.
A woman; a girl who is encouraged in what God says about her.
Today’s social media has a significant impact on all of us, boys included. We are told what we need to be, look like, act like and what is “correct” We are pressured into being something other than what God says we are supposed to be. I finally saw today what God says about me, and I wanted to share that with you.
1 Peter 3:1-7
To start off I wanted to share this list of what society says a women is:
- Must be together. All around us women cannot be chaotic, we must have our whole lives put together no matter what we are going through. Look put together, act put together act.
- Shaped well. Yes, I mean our lives shaped well, our bodies shaped well.
- Must be active. In everything.
- Independent, but we must agree that we are a gift to men, our husbands, boyfriends ect.
- Social Media accepted.
- Sexy, aggressive, strong in all things.
- Academically perfect.
- Informed about all things.
“The weakest are the loudest and the strongest are the quietest.”
These are the things the world says a women is. Nothing and the complete opposite of what God says we are. Us women are something special and strong.
This is what God says we are:
- You are Gods special creation.
- You are a blessing and a crown.
2 Corinthians 5:17-20
1 Corinthians 7:35
1 Peter 3:1-6
Remember these six things God says that we are. Remind yourself of them because YOU are fearfully and wonderfully mad.
Isaiah 28: 1-29
Isaiah 29: 1-24
Revelations 5: 1-14
Growing up I always remembered that little things are what we thought made us “worthy” Who had the best shoes, who was better at the new game that just came out, heck just if you had the game yourself you were automatically the best in the class. How many friends you had and especially who was your friends. Life was funny, we thought so highly of materialistic things that had no value on our self-worth.
But is my worthiness the relevant question? I sure seem to ask myself it quite often, and when I think and wonder what actually makes me worthy I can’t look to answer it, then I came to the understanding that Paul already explained it for me…
“For all have sinned and fallen short for the glory of God” Romans 3:23
So if I ask myself the question again or restate it to figure out which one of us humans are worthy; the answer is just, none. I mean if we take a look we can find lists of what it takes to be worthy aka:
and so on until this complicated question that seemed to have the answer we all were not looking for got so much more clear…
“There is not a moment in the human time that God does not cry “Mine” toward us.”
Finally, we can see the answer… that when we take our eyes off the evil ways of the world and set them on what truly matters, Jesus Christ, we become worthy and valuable. We soon find ourselves at rest. We are His.
He is worthy.
Life has been so rough for me here lately. I will admit that when people say you find yourself at the end of a journey or chapter, they are serious.
High school and society caught up to me, I was weak and let things slip me away from what I truly wanted to do and be. I lost my path and allowed my self to stray away from not only my personal stuff but my spiritual side. Finally, (thank you Jesus) God smacked me in the face and opened my eyes to what was taking place.
I lost, or so it seems, so much time dealing with issues. Boys, school, family and my emotions that I wasn’t seeing what I was doing. Understanding this and allowing myself time to forgive and move on has been the best thing for me. I have finally, in person, seen that even though I strayed away from God he never once left my side. He let me take on my battles and hurt, but he led me right back to him, stronger and braver.
I am so happy to say that I am back and have so many exciting things coming to this site here soon. Thank you for following me through my journey in this crazy thing called life!
