“One friend in a lifetime is much; two are many; three are hardly possible.”

-Henry Adams

Sometimes we feel lonely. Sometimes we feel that we don’t have enough friends.

But you know what?

You may only have one best friend. That one friend is all you need sometimes. Someone to share with, someone to talk to, someone to listen to, someone to have fun times and hard times with. Treasure every friendship….even if it’s only one.

-Lea C:

Keep Love In Your Heart…

“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.”

-Oscar Wilde

Take time to look around you. There is beauty everywhere you turn. There are also people everywhere turn.

Perhaps some of those people are hurting. Some sad, some lonely, some deeply depressed. A simple kind word, act, or even a smile can heal a soul.

Let them know that there is love in the world. That they are loved.


“…You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”

-Mark 12:31b NKJV

‚̧ Have a wonderful day!

Classic Look

Feeling classy today? Here’s the look for you.


You can’t get more classic than black and white along with a red lip and blue eyeshadow.

Get the look:


-Urban Decay eyeshadows in “Scratch”, “Peace”, and “Zero”

-Annabelle smoothie eyeliner in “Licorice”


-Revlon colorstay Liquid lipstick in 085 “Supreme Sienna”

– Rimmel London lipstick in 180 “Just Set Red”

– Rimmel London lipgloss in 130 “Take a chance”


– L’Oreal True Match liquid foundation

– Maybelline New York Age Rewind Finishing Powder in natural beige

– Avon pink blush

– Milani baked bronzer in 05 “Soleil”

-Yves Rocher corrector

You have to be brave to try this look. Many girls/women are afraid of red lipstick and blue eyeshadow, but if you are willing to try I think you may change your mind about it!

This look makes a bold statement.

The Best Friend Test….

To my bestEST friend, Mckenna.

This one’s for you. ‚̧

You know a best friend by their words and actions

20130518-DSC_0287 - Copy

For example….

You know your best friend’s real if:


…she trusts you to do her makeup for her…

….and simply laughs when you completely mess it up…


When you both make goofy faces on a regular basis for ‘supposed-to-be-elegant’ photos…


When you realize she’s always been there for your birthday.

When she is very similar to you….

yet completely different…


¬†when she doesn’t think it’s weird that you kiss her on the cheek….


When you actually remember the day you met at 5 years old.



When you can share every little thing with her, and when the words “shy” or “embarrassed” have nothing to do with your relationship.

When you can act exactly like yourself around her, and her around you.

When you stand up for each other ALL the time.

When you trust each other 100%.


“A friend loves at¬†all¬†times.”¬†-Proverbs 17:17a (NKJV)
When you know that the sun will never set on your beautiful relationship.
‚̧ Thanks.
