Three Things About Myself

Marigold Hope

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Spring is officially here, and I’m loving the sunshine and longer nights. Even though losing sleep from daylight saving’s time is no fun, a night owl like me sure does appreciate the extra hours of evening light.

Spring reminds me of hope, and right now a friend of mine needs a good dose of that. His name is Rob, and he just had surgery to remove pancreatic cancer. Though the odds may be against him, God is always in his favor. I believe in the Lord’s healing power, and I’m asking for agreement in prayer over Rob’s body and spirit. Please also keep his wife and three daughters in your prayers.

Thank you lovely ones. Together we can #WAGEHOPE!

Today’s collages are all about Marigold. I know a lot of people refer to this color as mustard yellow, but to be honest, I hate the name “mustard” (it’s also a topping I don’t like the taste of lol). I feel like marigold is a much prettier name, so that’s what I’m going to call it from here on out.

I know a lot of people shy away from yellow because they think it won’t be flattering, but that’s just not true. A golden yellow looks great on almost every skin tone and hair color.

The only exception would be for those who have lighter blonde hair or a red undertone to their skin. But there’s a solution for this! A pale or subtle yellow print (pictured top left) is perfect because it will not compete with skin tone or hair color.

Marigold is bright and cheerful, which is why it’s perfect for spring. Since marigold is a pop of color, you don’t need to go overboard on accessories. A simple blouse like those pictured above–or even a sundress–is perfect for a casual Friday or dinner with friends.

When it comes to pants, shoes, or other accessories, plum, navy, or black will ground this color perfectly. And if you really want to go bold, try pairing ruby heels with your marigold blouse or dress.

I would also suggest keeping your makeup simple, since yellow tends to brighten skin. A light pink or cherry lip color looks pretty and polished when paired with golden hues.

 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:6-7 NIV)

How to Wear Blush Eyeshadow

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)

The Art of Learning~Day 10 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome back to Day 10 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge!

Today’s Topic: How Important You Think Education Is.


I think education is super important. Almost anyone will tell you that. I believe that many Americans take school for granted, since the law forces children to go.  There are other countries where kids would give just about anything to learn to read and write. They would give anything to learn how they can make a difference in the world.

I also believe that lifelong learning is important. College may not be for everyone, but there are so many books to read and trades to learn. No matter who you are or what your financial situation is, we are all capable of learning something.

I believe that developing curiosity for the world around us is necessary to live a fulfilling life. Just go outside and look at the earth and sky God has created! Look at the stars highlighting their dark canvas, or the way animals live in harmony. Look at the way people interact with one another and what motivates them. Doesn’t that make you want to learn?

One of my favorite quotes on learning is by my favorite actress, Natalie Portman (who graduated from Harvard by the way).

I don’t love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful. —Natalie Portman

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I hate studying, but it really doesn’t captivate me either. Learning, however, is like art. I guess I’m making a huge nerd out of myself, but that’s okay. I hope to keep learning about the world around me even when I’m done with college.

Save Lunabelle + Cozy Fashion

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! I am editing this post in the middle of the night because my cat Lunabelle is sick. She’s urinating blood, but we really can’t afford to take her to the vet.

If you would like to help, please donate here https://www.gofundme.com/save-lunabelle

If you can’t donate, please share and pray for healing for her. Thanks so much!


I can feel it in the air; it’s almost Christmas! I love this holiday because of all the baking, pretty lights, decorating the tree, and gathering with family and friends.

Of course, I love remembering the birth of my Savior Jesus Christ most of all. Even though we all tend to get busy this time of year, it is important to slow down and remember what God has done. Read the Christmas story and think of some things you are grateful for this year. And of course, don’t forget to reach out and help a neighbor.

Another thing I love about the holidays is being cozy and warm (even though it can be freezing out!). And yes, you can still look chic while bundling up. I love parkas. I have an olive green one like the jacket in this collage, and it is the warmest coat I have ever worn. Parkas are long and figure flattering, and they go well with any outfit.

Flannel is also in style, and we all know it’s super warm. Try updated colors like blue, peach, or purple this year. Dark skinny jeans and simple ankle boots anchor this outfit for a casual, yet polished look. Perfect for going out Christmas shopping!

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11 NKJV).


Thanks for reading! What are your plans for Christmas? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
