Black&Yellow Liner

Yellow eyeliner! Who would’ve thought? My first thought was “Yellow liner? Ew no. Just no.”  But years ago I saw an Avon add with yellow and black eyeliner. I remember thinking it was so original and artsy, and actually really liked it! I couldn’t wait to try it from then on. Today, I finally did a post on it!

It sounds like something you can’t just wear out. But it’s really no more ‘stand-out’ than white or silver, and definitely no more than blue or purple. In fact, people have to look twice to realize it’s a wacky color! I think it’s a very nice color accent to brighten a look, and goes well with a black or grey outfit, neutral lips, and peachy blush.

Product(s):

– Yves Rocher Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Jaune Citron

– Maybelline Master Precise liquid liner in “Black”

– Maybelline The Colossal Smokey Eyes Volum’ Express mascara

– Lipsticks: L’Oreal Paris 802 “Captivating Copper” & Rimmel London 022 “Nostalgia” (Blended on top of each other)

Fresh Spring Green

 

 

So, excuse the chipping on some of my nails… I took these photos on day 3. Haha. (Which, I think, is pretty good for 3 days wear-time!)

I’m not a huge fan of cool colored nailpolish, especially green, but I really ended up liking this one!!

I used “the more the merrier” by Essie.

Father, I Wanted a Car, Not a Bible.

So a friend sent me this touching little story today. I almost cried. It is funny, how we expect what we want or ask for in a certain way, and when it’s not done as such, we freak out and often become angry. This really made me think…

FATHER, I WANTED A CAR, NOT A BIBLE

  

  A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealers showroom,  and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.   As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his  father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his  graduation, his father called him into his private study, told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and how much he loved him. He handed him a beautifully wrapped gift box.
Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and
found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with his name embossed in gold.

Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said, “With all your money you give me a Bible?” He stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible behind.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old. He thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. But before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to him. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.

When he arrived at his father ‘ s house, sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father ‘ s important documents and saw the Bible, new, just as he had left it years ago.  With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. His father had carefully underlined a verse, Matt 7:11, “And if ye, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father which is in Heaven, give to those who ask Him?”
As he read those words, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealers name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired.  On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words…
PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God ‘ s blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
