lipstick on your forehead will NOT help you makeup your mind…..

Pretty is as pretty does”, is something my grandmother used to say.  We all know that we don’t need makeup to be beautiful……….however…

Come on.  It does help cover up some .. well, imperfections. 

A couple of things to consider when you are trying out some new products…

  1. Don’t use foundation to change your skin color!   The goal is to enhance not alter.
  2. When it comes to cleansing – think gentle!  Pain and cleanliness have nothing to do with each other.
  3. Rinse, rinse, rinse.  Remember that water is only gentle when it’s tepid.
  4. A 3% hydrogen peroxide solution is a great disinfectant for blemishes, causing minimal to no irritation to the skin.
  5. Please.  There is NO such thing as a safe tan.  Put on your sunscreen.
  6. Ok, sunburned?  A bottle of vinegar added to a warm bath will soothe your skin and make it feel extra soft.
  7. Exfoliate at least twice a week.  This will get blood flowing into the face.  Try baking soda for a gentle scrub.
  8. Sensitive skin?  Use a Pepto Bismol mask!  Apply straight from the bottle with a cotton swab or cotton ball.  Let dry and rinse with cool water.
  9. Don’t over moisturize.  You may not need it all over your face.  Concentrate on the drier areas.
  10. Massage leftover hair conditioner into your cuticles.

Honor God with the body He gave you!  When you look your best you can bring honor to God.

oh, women and their shoes…

Let’s hear it for shoes……GLORIOUS shoes!

“I never wear flats.  My shoes are so high that sometimes when I step out of them, people look around in confusion and ask, “Where’d she go?” and I have to say, “I’m down here.”  ―    Marian Keyes

“Sometimes comfort doesn’t matter. When a shoe is freakin’ fabulous, it may be worth a subsequent day of misery. Soak in Epsom salts and take comfort in the fact that you’re better than everyone else.”  ―    Clinton Kelly

“I was sad because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet. So I said, “Got any shoes you’re not using?”  ―    Steven Wright

Hey…..we love change, we love variety, we love shopping…….and we love shopping for shoes.   “Shoes are a collector’s item, whether women realize they perceive them that  way or not,” says Suzanne Ferriss, PhD, editor of Footnotes: On Shoes.  Just think of how they’re often stored artfully on shoe trees and shelves.  “They’re like sculptures,” says Ferriss.

We’re not alone, ladies.  Men love the shoes too….and men love the shoes we are wearing!    And to think…it all started with Cinderella…..
