LENT 2017:Spiritual Recharge

Today is the first day of the Lent season! I have really been looking forward to it this year. As some of you may know, I was baptized in November. It was one of the most amazing experiences and decisions I have ever made! I am so happy I made it official to become a follower of Christ. I was actually baptized as a baby when I “was” Catholic, but that is another story for later ;-).

Lent is a time when I RECHARGE and refocus on my relationship with God, myself and others. It is a time when I figure out what I not only want to give up during Lent and after, but also, what I want to gain. Since being baptized, there have been some interesting experiences happening. God didn’t say once you are baptized your life will be perfect. It is the total opposite. But that is where the faith you may not have had before really starts to kick in. You have faith in God’s plan for your life and not so much of your own. HA! God’s plan will leave our plans in the dust, if only we really TRUST him.  It is hard and no walk in the park. Take a moment to think about when things really got tough, and now, look at where you are. See, God’s got you.

Bible Study/Prayer Binder

IMG_5116

I am so thrilled that I have finally finished making and setting up my binder I will be using for Bible Study and writing down Prayers. I have been on a spiritual journey for almost two years now  and just wanted to make something that I could write down scriptures, my conversations with GOD and prayers for loved ones and the world. And of course I had to make it nice and cute 🙂 By being able to write down what I am reading in the bible or inspiration I see, I am able to reflect back and refer to things and apply it to my life. I have divided my binder into 5 sections: S.O.A.P, Journal, Prayers, “BLESSON”, and Favorite Verses. Come, take a look inside!

with LOVE, <3

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and it’s not too late to pick out that perfect outfit for the Day of LOVE:-) You can be spending the day with your honey, family, your girlfriends or whoever. Go ahead and get dolled up, take lots of pics and enjoy yourself! And if you’re single, don’t worry if your are spending Valentine’s Day alone. Just because you are single DOES NOT mean you can’t celebrate too! Refer to my post “Enjoy Your Own Company“and you will see being single in a totally different light.

I have come up with some cute outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day for you all! Exciting! Red is the color for this season (we have been seeing it a lot on and off the red carpet), so why not be a little festive for the Love Day 🙂 Red is sexy, fiery and sultry. Just about everyone can pull off wearing red!I love a nice red lip (Russian Red  by MAC is my go to shade lately) and pretty red nail polish. Have a look at the outfits I came up with.
