You're a Child of the King!

Today as I was getting ready for my very busy Sunday, I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed that I get to serve the King of Kings! I think we forget sometimes that we are the children of the one and only true King! As Christian ladies, we are ALL Princesses! We must think, act & dress the part!

I've never seen Dutchess Kate Middleton do or say anything inappropriate or dress frumpy. She is always prim & proper! Not saying that we have to be perfect, but we should always try to do our best to represent the King we serve! This week as you go out and serve the Lord, try to remember you are a Princess!

Here's my Princess looks from last week! ;)

Yesterday I went to a Younique training conference and I was totally shocked out of all the ladies there I was recognized by the CEO for Top Virtual Parties & Top Number of Personally Sponsored! It was a great day!

Also, I was totally geeking out this week, when one of my high school girls told me my eyebrows were on fleek!

Have a great week, and God Bless! ♥

Frumpy to Fabulous!

One thing that makes me sad is when teenagers or lost people associate modesty with frumpiness. My goal in starting this blog almost 3 years ago was to help ladies get out of their frumpy, modest clothes and into some modern, flattering, modest outfits!

I know as Moms we can put our looks on the back burner, but what we don't realize is that our lack of caring is a bad testimony to our teenagers, our church members, and lost people. If we want the next generation to appreciate modesty, we must make it look attractive to them. Of course, we are not going to compromise God's Word to do so, but we don't have to look like we just woke up either. It's all about balance!

So many ladies are hiding behind their baggy clothes, ponytails, and dark circles, and just honestly don't feel beautiful. I HATE to think that ladies don't think that they are beautiful. EVERY lady is beautiful, because first and foremost God made you perfectly! I want to help you get some of your confidence back. Not because we want to impress others, but because it's important to view yourself in a positive way. I want you to look in the mirror and be confident that you are beautiful.

I asked my good friend Melissa, to help me make the point that looking nice doesn't take THAT much more time, but it does, of course, take a little more effort.

Left: no makeup, hair in ponytail, old baggy tee shirt, jean skirt, and old flip flops. 3 mins to get ready.

Right: 7 minute makeup routine: little brow pencil, top eyeliner, 2 coats mascara on top, once coat mascara on bottom, foundation, and blush. Hair all natural with bangs pinned back with a pouf. Cute tank, cardigan, simple necklace, jean skirt, and cute flip flops. 10 mins to get ready.

Only a 7 minute difference in getting ready time between these two looks. It doesn't have to be an all glamorous affair to put in a little extra time for yourself. Just a little extra effort in your appearance will instantly boost your mood and confidence and help you feel ready to take on the day! We are worth the extra 7 mins!

Left: no makeup, second-day hair, old baggy tee shirt, jean skirt, and Old Navy flip-flops. 3 minutes to get ready.

Right:10-min. makeup routine: pressed powder foundation, bronzer, eyeliner, eyeshadow, brow liner, lip gloss, and mascara. Second-day hair sprayed with dry shampoo, and used a 3 barrel waver. (takes about 10 minutes) Cute graphic tee, jean skirt, and cute sandals.

I do take a little longer to get ready because I have a high-maitenance hair style, but if you have longer hair, you can find tons of cute ideas to wear your hair on Pinterest! I second Melissa's statement, you ladies are WORTH the extra time getting ready!

Here's some of my outfits from the last two weeks! We've been SUPER busy with school, soccer games, my Younique business, church, etc...so I forget to take pictures every day!

Church to Casual

As you all know, I love to remix my clothes into many different outfits! But, I am starting to also switch up my looks into dressy for church and more casual for everyday wear. Today, I'm going to show you how I wore my maxi dress to church this morning and then switched a few things and made it more casual for lunch and the night service.
