Be That Girl

Be that girl. The girl who turns what everyone else calls her pipe dreams into a beautiful reality. The girl who wakes up each morning and decides to be all she can be, without doubt, without fear, without hesitation. Be the girl who sees beauty in everything. Who shares her gifts, and light, and love with those around her. Who follows her dreams wherever they take her.

Be the girl who decided to go for it and don’t look back.

Shine A Little Brighter, My Darlings.

You are beautiful. Yes YOU! You have the power to be and do whatever it is God has put on your heart. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. Your light shines so bright that some people can’t even see it. Know it’s there. Use it.

Do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are. Give love, kindness and compassion to everyone you meet. Love yourself first. Have faith. And most importantly, be unconditionally happy.

You are unique and perfect in His eyes. Go show the world what you can do with the gifts you’ve been given! Right here. Right now.

100% Pure | My New Beauty Obsession

IMG_7392

This summer and fall, I’ve been going through a transformation of sorts. Trying to cleanse my body from the inside out, but also take care of it from the outside in.

With an interest in nutrition and healthy eating, I’ve always been very conscious about what goes into my body. I am a huge believer in clean eating and fueling your body with the foods that it needs. It’s an easy concept really, your body is your temple – it’s sacred – so treat it that way!

One thing I’ve never put much thought into is what I’m putting on my body. I’ve tried out product after product of acne treatments, face washes and moisturizers all claiming to do wonders to my skin. And sure, some of them did work! But… what was in them? Did I ever look or ask?

Night Out Makeup Routine

64253_710967612322387_3478175196619766069_n

Getting ready for a night out can be quite the production at times. I’m a fan of quick, simple and easy.

I start with 100% organic apricot oil blended with Young Living Essential Oil Lavender as a moisturizer. Then apply concealer and some light eyeshadow and liner. I even everything out with Bobbi Brown Liquid Foundation and swipe some bronzer across my cheeks. To finish the look I use MAC mascara to really open my eyes, and I’m ready to go! What’s your go-to Night Out Makeup Routine?

Struck By Lightning

Happy Halloween! I’ve been struck by lighting this year.

I have to say this costume was VERY last minute. As in, an hour before the party. But, how much fun is this super easy idea?!

Everyone at the party was super impressed, and we had a lot of fun with it :)

After raiding Target for a poster board and shirt I didn’t care about ripping and burning, I grabbed an umbrella at checkout we had a costume! (brilliant and cheap!)

You can make this too! All you need is:

Lightning Bolt

– One yellow poster board: I traced a light night bolt and cut it out

– Shoestring: to tie it across the neck

Struck by Lightning

– One umbrella: cut holes and rip as much as you’d like

– One shirt you don’t care about destroying (***Make sure the shirt isn’t highly flammable)

– A lighter: to burn some holes (I did this in the shower just incase)

– Hairspray: for some serious teasing and frizzing to your hair
