Shine like a star

 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[c] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.

Philippians 2:14-18

Swimwear Delight

Upon the quest to have an absolute amazing Memorial Day weekend I do the first thing that gets me prepared... swimwear shopping!!! Of corse there are limited places you can shop when you don't live on the coast where swimwear shops are on every corner. My first and one of my favorite places to shop for apparel in general is Target. I was really surprised by the quantity of stylish bathing suits they have, which made my limit of items in the dressing room maxed out! Everything from triangle tops, to balconette tops, extra padding tops, full coverage suits, the list is long indeed. I found a couple that I liked, and decided on this embroidered "hippy" top (19$) that I will mix with my turquoise bottoms.

If your in need of a really cute swimwear I think you might just find what your looking for at Target for around 20$-40$! Go take a look!

If you've read my "About the Author" you know that I come from California.  My family lives there and I go to visit every couple of months. I made my flight arrangements and didn't even realize that it was on Mothers day weekend, so that was an added bonus! Got to spend my mini vacation at the beach and with my awesome family&friends. I posted a few pictures from the trip. And yes, I will be uploading some beauty posts soon with fun tutorials to come.

Above is pictures my bothers and I found in my mom's year books...hello old school!

Smoked Eyeliner

Say goodbye to Raccoon Eyes<----- and hello to soft ---->sexy eyes! One of my biggest makeup no-no's is the black eyeliner caked on to girls eyes. Honestly all it does is closes up your eyes making them look smaller and not as pretty as they should be! Now of corse there is the exceptions and the fun times we can, but on a daily basis we should use our black eyeliner in a softer way. In my tutorial I use a light brown smokey eye and black liner with black shadow swept over to take away any harshness we don't want to wear against our face. Please watch it, rate, subscribe, and comment!!!

Love your Body!

Dear Girls,
Your body is an amazing one of a kind unique beauty. If we all looked the same how boring would that be? I am a 36" bust by 24" waist and 36" hips. I can not fit in a size 00, I wear a size 4-6, sometimes even a 9! Some of you may think, oh gosh what is she complaining about I'm a size 14! Girls, every one has the pressure to be smaller then they are...even if they are a size 2. But you know what I would like to know, who says that "pretty" or "sexy" is a size 00? Every woman is built differently. Seriously my hips bones without my flesh couldn't even squeeze into a size 00, It's impossible!!! If you are confident in your skin, then no body will see the minor "flaws" you feel that you have. I'm so happy that I have curves and I'm my own unique person. Besides if Barbie was a real person with her size, her rib cage would collapse.

------->  I am me, and I love me!  <-------

Marilyn Monroe was a size 12
Bettie Page was a size 6/8

VA-VA-VOOM Red Lips!

Here is a tutorial to show you how to apply a red lip and some other tips on what to pair it with. Don't be afraid to try something new...I promise that if you try it for one day you will love it!
