• Being planted: Being ok during your transitional season

    Jeremiah 29:11 NIV – 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. If you read my last post about waiting, you already know where I am going this. Everyone today is trying to make “moves”. Money Moves. Education moves. Just moves in general.  Moves seem to be the thing these days, but what if you are trying to make moves and nothing is shaking for you. You have done your waiting and nothing seems to yet move in your favor. But on the contrary my dear, you might not see…

  • My Favorite Photo Editing Apps

    So if you are like me, Instagram is a daily must-have. From the celebrities you stock to the influencers that you are obsessed with. I love to share my life and fun pics with everyone but I like to show them off in a fancy way. Editing my pics is a must for me. At first, I thought using dark Instagram filters was great editing but little did I know that it was not very “aesthetically pleasing”. So after some research, lots of practice, and tons of trial and error, I was able to discover ways to edit that show my pictures for what they really were. So you better…

  • July #iwannabuys

    A new month is among us and that means more makeup releases. More products that I want to try, but may not buy because I am supposed to be saving money. So, therefore, I am making this list so you can share my frustration!

So join me on this ride and we can be strong together. Here are my July #iwannabuys. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – The Jackie Aina Expanded Line I bought this foundation years…

  • Why do we have to Wait?

    ‘However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him— ‘ 1 Corinthians 2:9 Waiting for things to happen can be very monotonous. Dull. Tedious. Boring. Blah. And the list goes on and on. Waiting for that new job or even waiting for that Amazon package to come in can be tiring. But waiting may just be one of the greatest things you can do for yourself. This was the lesson I had to learn over the past summer after I graduated. If you talk to some…

  • 18 New (good) habits for the New Year

    Happy New Year Everyone! It’s finally 2018 and we can wipe our hands of everything that happened that we weren’t so proud of in 2017. To get started on taking a fresh step in the new year most people come up with a resolution. Funny story… THOSE NEVER WORK. So in 2017 I decided to focus on short term and long term goals and that helped tremendously. But this year I wanted to shake it up by trying to create some new habits. Not the bad ones, but habits that will benefit my future. The trick is to start small and work your way up from there. To help you…

  • My blessing in the cleaning lady

    So about 3 1/2 years ago I was chilling with my grandparents as usual in the summer before my freshman year. Now let me tell you before this day I was stressing about coming to college. I was ready to embark on the next step in my life as a student, but as a Christian, I had no clue what I was doing. I had never in my life did anything outside of hanging with my 6 friends from school on the weekends and the most fun we had was finding a new thing to attempt to make on Pinterest. So you can conclude that we were very very boring, but…
