Beauty and Bibles

Once again, I found some really cool tutorials on YouTube.

This is a video showing the best and easiest way to do a French Tip manicure.

I did it myself.....but didn't think it would actually work so I just slapped it on without shaping my nails or doing my cuticles.  It took me about 2 minutes.

Not too bad!! I will most definitely do this again.

I don't really know anything about fashion or beauty or any of that stuff.  I usually wear very little make up or none at all (see picture above).  But I found some really cool eye make-up tutorials.  There was one for a bronze-smokey-eye, one for smokey-eyeliner, and one for making your eyelashes look fake. I kinda put them all together to get this.

I am really self-conscious when I wear this.

It feels like way way too much.

But I thought there was something kinda cool about it.

What do you think??

Speaking of vanity and striving after the wind (Get it?? Ecclesiastes.. King Solomon... anyone?), my new Bible came in the mail!!!  Isn't it pretty????

A few months ago I sent a Bible and a Reasoning Book (basically a mini Bible encyclopedia) to be bound together into one book.  Don't you love the speckles??

My name is even embossed on the bottom of the cover (which I am strategically hiding with my hand...I'm so clever).  I absolutely love it and could not be happier! 


  1. I'm a big fan of make-up!! It may feel like a lot but it doesn't look like too much. I think it's perfect for an evening out. Love the nails, too!

  2. OK, I love the eye makeup, it's definitely not too much. And your nails look fantastic too!

  3. You look so beautiful! I love your nails too.

    My favorite scripture is the classic Philippians 4:13. Enjoy your pretty speckled Bible! :)

    Eat Live Move

    1. Yes! And if I ever needed help and a little extra power for something its weight loss!

  4. It doesn't look like too much, it's very natural.

    You look great. :)

  5. You have the most beautiful eyes!

  6. I think your eyes look great, I have to ask though, why did you hide your nose and mouth in every picture???

    1. Thanks for the compliment :-)
      I cover up part of my face in every picture. I like to keep a little mystery in my life :-)
