Happy Friday (and Saint Patrick’s Day) lovely readers and followers! I’m back from spring break, and this week has felt long and productive.  Sometimes things can make us feel so busy that we take them for granted.

I like how God is reviving my passion for life again. Don’t get me wrong, I consider myself a pretty mellow and optimistic person. But I’ve also been battling stress and anxiety lately. Talk about a killjoy.

Did you know that your comments can literally make a difference in my day? I know that I may not write the most riveting or mind blowing posts in the world, but if something I write touches you in some way, let me know. That comment section at the end of each post is where I’ve had some really amazing conversations. I want you to be a part of them.

I love how God uses little things like a text message or the comment section of a blog post to bring me back to reality again–to bring me back to His purpose for my life. Has God ever reached out to you like that before?

Today’s fashion post is actually a beauty post! When I first saw blush eye shadow trending in a magazine, the only thing I could think of was that my already bloodshot eyes would look even more dried up and scary (darn allergies).

But the more I experiment with blush eye shadow, the more I see how it can actually be very flattering on any skin tone. This soft, romantic shade is appropriate for any occasion and is just right for spring.

For those of us who are used to neutrals or smokey eyes, taking a leap into pink hues can seem a little challenging. The key is mixing and blending. I find that a peach  or burgundy shadow looks better on me than  lavender or heavy pink colors.

If you’re on board to try this pretty trend, my best advice would be to find a pallet that has plenty of blendable bronze and gray shades (see bottom pallet). If you’re used to a darker or smokey eye, burgundy or plum shades are the way to go (see top left).

 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:11 NIV)
