I’ve mentioned my favorite wallet by Leigh & Luca, but have you seen their scarves?!  Beautiful, unique, eye catching… I can’t get enough of these!  I am drawn to the swallows.


Their site also includes a “How to Wear” page, to show you different ways to style a scarf.


I’m excited to share a book with you.  Friendly, witty, and hard to put down, Holly Wagner helps us to use God’s Word to gain sanity, and peace in life’s storms.  Thank you, Holly, for the great and VERY helpful book Find Your Brave.


I have so many favorite things I want to share with you!  These are some big time fav’s.  Enjoy!

Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer {Marc Jacobs}- This face primer keeps your makeup on longer, and has one of my favorite ingredients for my face…COCONUT!

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint– This is one fantastic face tint!  It feels like a thin layer of velvet on my skin and adds a nice subtle tint to even out my complexion. {I use Groenland}

Deborah Lippmann ‘Rich Girl’ Hand Cream– I carry this in my purse.  It is nice and thick, yet sets right into my skin.  Plus, it has SPF 25! {Bonus}

Leigh & Luca Wallet–  I LOVE THIS WALLET.  My sister-n-law bought this for me and I use it pretty much every day.  I can pull it out of my bigger purse and use it as a clutch, and it holds everything I need with plenty of space.  It is also so soft!

I get compliments on my skin, and it makes me so happy to share this ‘secret’ with you.  {keep in mind, it may not be for everyone!}

I buy an inexpensive jar of Unrefined Organic Coconut Oil and use it in a couple of ways;

1.  It replaced my makeup remover!  I dig in to the oil {you can use a cotton swab to get it out too}, and rub it on my eyes and wipe away eye makeup with a cotton round!  It works perfectly.

2.  Once my makeup is removed, I put it on my face and go to bed with it as a replacement to my night cream!

This is a real money saver, and it keeps my skin clean and hydrated.  And a jar lasts a long time!



There was a point in time when I had to make a decision.  To dig my heels in and say; “ok, the Bible is true”,  before I knew 100% that it was.

That is hands down the BEST decision I have ever made.

Since then, I have made it a point to study the Word of God everyday.  And now, years later, I can tell you without a doubt it is true, and my life is AMAZING!

Find out for yourself!

Here are some great tools that have helped me along the way!  With more to come in later posts.

The Message version of the Bible {MSG} and the Amplified version {AMP} are great! Give them a try.

Bible Gateway ~ I have this as an app on my iPhone, set to the MSG version.  Each day there is one verse {a ‘Verse of the Day’}.

The Message Promise Book ~ The Contents have a word {Ambition, Anger, Belief, Children…} and verses that go along with it.  It’s small, so it fits right into my purse!

Teachers of the Word ~ I regularly listen to Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, and John Gray…. all their own style and all FANTASTIC! Sometimes I go on YouTube or their website and play it over bluetooth in my car.

Christian Music ~ I LOVE Christian music.  Some of my favorite songs right now are Whole Heart, Bulletproof, and Wonder.  It lifts me up, I love the sound, and it teaches me Truth all at the same time!

Go ahead.  Dig your heels in.

Thinking of the prettiest place you know.

Toasting good news or a good person.

Spotting something beautiful.

I can’t get enough of The Tiny Book of Tiny Pleasures.  God LOVES to see us smile!  You can get one or gift one at Anthropologie.  You’ll smile all the way through it!  And maybe mark some off along the way….



Anthro is a great source to me, for fun and interesting books!  Here are more to choose from.
