Made my day:)

 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
-Acts 10:36

This is how it appears EXACTLY in your Bible. 

Don't believe me...well look it up :)

So today...

I tried this hair do...

I'm in love!

 I slept in french braids to get the waves, and then in the morning i styled my hair like that. 

Okay, so it didn't turn out perfect... but it was REALLY cute, and super fun. I'd defiantly recommend trying it.

Fish Tale!

I love this braid!

So so much easier than it looks, and useful too.

Personally, I think its fun paired with feather earnings, or a plaid shirt, but any way you do it it is LOADS of fun!

I'd recommend tying your hair off in a pony tale on your first time a round, then braiding it. Try to keep your chunks of hair pretty even. Spry it with a little bit of water if you're having a lot of trouble.

On everything, and anything.

iLike it sooo much, the dust in my tower is glittery.

Want some ideas for using it?

1. Eye Shadow

I know you can buy sparkly eye shadow, but it works so much better to just use really fine body glitter. I got mine at Clarie's and I just dust it on my eyelids with my fingers. If you don't put on any eye shadow with the glitter, the glitter will stick better.

2. With Modge Podge

When you put on a modge podge finish, you can sprinkle a tiny bit of glitter in for a special flare.

3. Homemade Glitter Toes

Paint  your toes with clear coat, sprinkle on glitter, let dry, brush acces glitter off. Repeat untill to your liking, then put a few coats on so that it is a smooth final product.

Orange Julius

In honor of lazy Saturday mornings here is a treat has long time been one of my favorites.

I useulally don't use a recipe, but here is a good one from the Blendtec cook book.

2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups ice

Now, if you have a Blendtec, put them in the blender in the order they are listed. If you don't, put them in in the opposite order.  Blend until smooth.

Also, if you have a Blendtec, I  recommend peeling a fresh orange and adding that in. The Blendtec will completely pulverize it, so you don't end up with strings and pulp. Unfortunately a regular blender will not.

French Braid Tips

Personally, I think it is the most useful hair technique I know. 

Here is a link if you don't already know how. If you do, here are my tips to improve your do. 

1. If you are going to do two braids on either side of your head, part you hair into two pig tales. Tie the opposite side off , and start braiding the loose side. This way your part stays nice.

2. I like to French braid my hair when its wet. Sometimes I even run moose through. Both these things better the results. 

3. Grab even pieces as you go. This makes it tighter.

4. If you want to sleep with them in to make your hair wavy, try the inside out french braid. Put curlers on the ends of you braids, this way all your hair looks wavy.

The Summer Before Boys

Do you remember...

The moments when fantasy and real...

coexisted in your world?

Where the world was yours.

Everything was as simple

as it seemed.

Do you remember...

when all this changed?

This is the summer where all this happens for Julia.

But Eliza isn't ready.

Will this tear them apart?

Are they strong enough to make it through?

Arise and Shine Forth

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” –Marianne Willamson

Pay it Forward Hat

For Christmas I've got a hat loom!

I have had soooo much fun.

Its addicting.

Because I don't need fifty hats, I have a plan.

I've been making them to donate to a Chemo therapy clinic.

I guess their my pay it forward hats.

I definitely would recommend trying it out.

If you want to make a flower, you can make it on the small loom for premies, you just need to do between 6 to 10 rows, depending on how frilly you want the flower. Bind it off like you do the hat, and add a button!

Th band is simple too, I'll put the link in here.

Have fun!!!

Lots of ♥,
