Never Stop Questioning…

Learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.

The Ocean’s Calling Me…

So I like snow. I like it up till mid January. Then it’s over. I’m done. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to summer time, the blue water on the white sand, the white clouds against the blue sky. The leaves on the trees…. yeah, I guess I’ve made my point.

So here’s a makeup look that reminds me of the blue ocean and yet is a suitable winter party look:

Turquoise on the lid and bottom lashline…

Deep purple-based blue in the crease…

Black liquid liner and mascara…

Pink lipbalm and blush and you’re set.

It’s that simple.

My eyes nearly always look brown, but these blues brought out the green in there! I’m always afraid to go bold with eyeshadow, but when I do, I love it.

I’m especially happy to have gotten “Making Faces” as I have wanted it for a long time:

Beauty Inspiration: Women of the Family

Eva and the dove 001

My Mom, is beautiful, artistic, kind, funny, and very fashionable. She inspires me everyday.

Thankfully we share the same size in shoes and most clothing, so her amazing style can pass down to me!

I love her so much,  am so grateful for her, and everything about her.

Some of my favorite stuff is passed down from her!

I guess she got her sense of style from her mom , grandmother:

Wow. She was so beautiful. I was almost two years old when she passed away.

I thank God everyday for my wonderful family. For my beautiful Mother. God bless her.

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!
