Mascara Review

Currently mourning the loss of Victoria's Secret makeup. I don't know if they stopped selling it at every store, or just the one I go to, but they don't sell my favorite mascaras any more! Finding a mascara is not like finding a good eye shadow or a cute shirt. Finding The mascara that works for you is like falling in love with chocolate for the first time, or waking up in a field of flowers with a harp playing and bunnies frolicking around. Victoria's had the best.. the best two I've ever tried.. Even though they were a little pricey they were definitely worth it! Now I'm searching through the vast world of eye lash tubes trying to find a replacement.

First one is a no go. Maybelline Pumped Up Mascara. The brush is too small and it coats all my bottom lashes without me even putting the wand directly on them and I end up have crunchy looking lashes on both my upper and bottom lashes. It also gets flakey within a few hours which is never fun.

Guilt Tripping

Theres only a few of you on here following, but if there were many,I'd still want to share with you all the serious and personal things. I always want this blog to be about even more than fashion or beauty tips, I want it to be somewhere were everyone can find encouragement, or to see that someone else is struggling and they're not alone.

I've realized this past year that I have the unhealthy tendency to pour all possible guilt on myself when I mess up- whether the mistake is big or small. It leaves me feeling pretty crummy and beyond that, I feel completely alone. Because in those moments I believe the lie that I am beyond my God Given Grace. I feel like I've created an unbreakable wall between me and my very best friend. Which will never be.. How inconsequential is one mistake to a God who loves unconditionally? It's so inconsequential that the moment you sincerely ask for forgiveness, God has no memory of the Huge or Tiny mistake you made. All He sees when He looks at you is His most beloved and pure daughter. I hope I can remember this begin to dwell in His love and promise instead of sitting in agony over my mistakes. Praying this over each of my followers as well <3

Now I currently have an obsession with floppy hats. (And fur, but we'll get to that later) Huge floppy hats are so fun! But I question whether or not I can pull them off or not. I always like to do a little research on my fashion to see different ways to wear. Here are some ideas :)

Fall is here! That means sweaters, boots and warm creamy drinks. ( All my favorite things) It also means you can go on lovely walks and finally wear those gorgeous coats and scarves. Getting excited for fall fashions!
