Fashion Friday: Circle Skirts

Beauty is all around us and our Creator has given us so much inspiration to work with. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside, but on Fashion Fridays we discover the latest fashion and beauty trends that help us to feel beautiful on the outside.

How many of you can say you have a circle skirt in your closet? If you don’t: why not? No matter what your body type is or what the weather is like where you are, this is a staple piece you can wear casually or glam up. We’re a fan of the ones with fun prints and bright colors, but a classic solid color will do for even the pickiest fashionista.

5 Dating Mistakes To Avoid

This article was originally written in December of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!

What are your motives for being in a relationship? Are you constantly checking in to make sure you’re in the right one? It takes a lot of effort to be romantically involved with another person, and it’s also a responsibility to do what it takes to keep it alive. If you’re like me, you would find it very helpful to have a playbook titled “Everything You Must Do to Find the One and Live Happily Ever After.”

No such thing exists, but here’s a start. I’d like to share five common mistakes that send relationships to an early grave. Continue reading “5 Dating Mistakes To Avoid”

I think a few of the best things we can do are: honor God, keep our faith in Him, and have a grateful heart. This is the philosophy behind GLAUDI, and success has a way of following this brand around. I was privileged to meet it’s founder Johana Hernandez a few months ago when she opened up her shop to have a women’s bible study.

When God Changes Your Dreams

This article was originally written in August of 2015 for Project Inspired, a website that encourages Christian teenage girls all over the world. Thank you for reading!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

I remember applying for college and thinking that I would major in business because I was told it’s a degree you can use in pretty much any career. In my dream, I would go on to get a master’s degree. Maybe even a doctorate, if I was feeling fancy. That all changed when I found out that I couldn’t afford to go to a major university. My parents made too much money to qualify for financial aid, and I didn’t want to take out a student loan that I’d be paying off for the rest of my life.

As a straight-A student, it was embarrassing to me that I had to apply at a local community college because that was all I could afford to do back then. As I submitted my paperwork, my family received a letter from my future community college, and in this letter they described their new Television Production program. My eyes lit up. In my senior year of high school, part of my curriculum was learning multimedia programs and producing visual content for the campus. I applied to the college program, loved every year of it and would you believe God paid all of my tuition! I never thought in a million years that I would be able to make a career in the entertainment industry, but to this day it’s how my husband and I make a living.

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. (Proverbs 16:9)

I say all of this to make a point that sometimes it feels like everything is falling apart when, in actuality, everything is falling into place. I thought my grades made me. I figured my attention to detail, memory and quick mind would make me a great candidate to become a future CEO of someone else’s company. I had no idea that through the arts I would meet my husband, birth a ministry and reach fulfillment in God’s plan for my career.

Here are some things to remember when the walls start crumbling around you. It’s important to mention that this applies as long as you are in God’s will. That’s the only way He can guide you to the dream He has for you. Continue reading “When God Changes Your Dreams”

Sometimes looking your best helps you feel like you can conquer the world. Jessica Shakir is a celebrity makeup artist and hair stylist, and has been in the game for over 18 years. When you look at her, you ask yourself “How? Did she start out when she was 2 years old?” I know, I know. This girl doesn’t look a day over twenty. I’ve known her for over 8 years, and the most beautiful thing about Jessica is her heart for God. For years she’s been encouraging women to stay pure for God until they become a wife, and it’s exciting that she recently walked down the aisle to marry her very own Prince Charming a few short months ago. If you’d like to know more about her, give her a follow and you’ll see just why everyone she meets is absolutely smitten with her. Continue reading “Promo Tuesday with Jessica Shakir Beauty”

Fashion Friday: Knee High Socks

Beauty is all around us and our Creator has given us so much inspiration to work with. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside, but on Fashion Fridays we discover the latest fashion and beauty trends that help us to feel beautiful on the outside.

From frilly and lacy to “I don’t want to get out of bed” comfy, knee high socks can fit into anyone’s wardrobe. With winter on it’s way, you might want to take a trip to the mall–or eBay–to get your stock together. We love pairing these with boots and a cozy sweater.

In Love,

My Miscarriage Journey

I’ve shared in the past that I experienced a painful loss during my first pregnancy in 2013. There have been so many times that women have privately asked me for advice because they were experiencing a miscarriage or knew someone who was. I thought I would sit down in front of the camera and share the ins and outs of my experience because October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and October 15th is Infant & Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day.
