We all know how much I love the “boho” trend. I love the loose, flowey clothing and free-spiritedness of it all. I figured that since I am always giving you style tips on how to rock the boho trend, I should probably give you a hair suggestion to go with it! Here I what I like to call “hippy briads”, which I think go just grand with the boho style.
- For this style you will be wearing your hair down, so brush it out and put some loose curls in it. Take some sea salt spray and mist it over your hair, scrunching it and working it through your hair to give it some texture and body.
- Take a section of hair from your “good side” aka the side you part your hair on, and do a simple braid about 2 inches from the front of your hair line. So, not at the front of your hair, a little further back on your head.
- Take the section of hair in front of your braid, so the hair at the front of your face, and an equal portion of hair from the other side of your head and pin the sections to the back of your head. You should have a “half up half down” sort of look goin on right now.
- Now take those sections that you pinned back to the back of your head and braid them together and secure with a clear elastic. You should now have one braid to the side of your hair and one going down the back.
This look is effortless, adorable, and so boho! Do you love it? Comment below!

2014 VMA’s Hottest Trends!
Last Sunday was one of the greatest award shows out of the whole year! Hundreds of celebrities gathered for the Video Music Awards in California and I know I wasn’t the only one wishing to be there! With homecoming dances just around the corner, what better way to get some inspiration than from the hottest dress trends at the VMAs?
Black and white dresses seemed to be a norm on the red carpet this year. The entire Fifth Harmony clan had a perfect variety of simple, yet classy, black and white dresses. Other celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and Beyoncé pulled off the look just as well.
Another common seen trend at the VMAs was shimmer and sequins. If you want a fun look for homecoming, I definitely suggest a little glitter! Jennifer Lopez looked stunning in her sparkling dress! If you like some shimmer, it’s a perfect way to dress up your look for homecoming without going too over the top.
Now this last “trend” isn’t exactly what most people would think of when I say the word trend… but it’s probably the best one there is! Being yourself is something that each celebrity has definitely stayed committed to at the VMAs. If you look through the red carpet pictures, you’ll see tons of different styles, patterns, and pieces. No matter who it was, they stuck with their own style not caring of what people thought. I encourage you to do the same when picking out your signature dress :)!

Flaunt your Freckles
Freckles are just about the cutest natural beauty feature a girl can have! Freckles make you look youthful, in a good way! They make you look cute and innocent. A lot of times, though, our foundation and other makeup can work against our freckles by covering them up! If you want to flaunt your freckles but don’t want to throw out wearing makeup, get the best of both worlds! Here’s how:
Draw attention to them: Want to show your freckles off and draw attention to them? Use a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. Smooth it on to even out your skin tone while still allowing your freckles to shine through! Add a little blush to complete the look.
Don’t take attention AWAY from them: Caking on your makeup and wearing it heavy on your lids can really distract from your God given gifts. Let those freckles be free! Wear subtle makeup like mascara to enhance your natural beauty.
Brown smokey eye: Play up your freckles with a subtle smokey eye! Take brown liner and smudge it on your top and bottom lash line for a smoldering, freckle intensifying look!
If you have freckles, let em shine!

What Holds You Together?
Some of us make excuses when we are off track and living in a way that is completely self-centered. I know, because I was stuck in this personal slavery for many years. The emotional pain caused me to be stuck here. I was in this place for so long, until one day, I began to even question the existence of God.
During the difficult times, I found myself using Science as an excuse to deny his presence. I prefaced conversations about God with the argument that the overlap of Christianity and science is very, very small. I couldn’t see the order and sequence in the universe because my life was in a state of selfishness.
I’m sharing a video this week that will hopefully move you, if you are in a similar place in your life. It’s also dedicated to people who need to be reminded of God’s unfailing love, existence, and his purpose in our living and breathing lives.+1 noteBibleChristianGodJesusMama's Corner

God’s Unconditional Love
Have you ever thought about how precious and special you are to God? Many of us spend time feeling like we are not what we need to be. We often compare ourselves to other people and assume something is wrong with us. There is, however, a way to stop that negative thinking. It is positively and frequently thinking and saying “God loves me unconditionally.” God loves us and views us as being accepted and blameless. Knowing God loves us unconditionally is a necessity to make progress in our walk with Him.
Our relationship with God should be based on love and acceptance, not fear. The enemy wants us to be focused on what’s wrong with ourselves. But knowing we are accepted and loved even in our imperfection is such a relief. God’s unconditional love gives us confidence, boldness, and fearlessness. When you go to bed at night, repeat to yourself “God loves me unconditionally and through faith I am made right in His eyes.” Add some power to your life and meditate on God’s Word!

Makeup Tips for Girls with Glasses!
When someone has glasses, their eyes tend to get over-shone by their new set of eyes. Sometimes the frames can attract more than the actual eyes themselves. It’s hard to apply makeup that another can notice without over applying and packing on the dark makeup. Here’s a little guide I put together to change that and help you girls out!
When looking for the right foundation, I suggest a powder over a liquid. When using a liquid or cream, your foundation seems to move under your frames, which can leave marks around your nose and cheeks. Also, when wearing glasses, our frames tend to make under our eyes look darker than normal. To avoid this, use a lighter shaded foundation or concealer to brighten up that area.
Sometimes our eyes get over-shone by our frames, making it harder for them to stand out. I’ve learned a trick to help solve this problem. However thick the frame of your glasses are is how you should model the thickness of your eyeliner: thin frames, thinner eyeliner. Also, try using neutral eye shadows to complement the rest of your makeup. Finish off with not one, but two coats of mascara.
With these helpful tips, you won’t have to worry about your glasses standing out over your eyes ever again!

Using Liner to Change Your Eye Shape
Did you know that you can use eyeliner to totally change the shape of your eyes? It CAN be done! Let me explain:
If you’d like your eyes to look closer together or if your eyes are wide-set: Add liner to the inner corner of your eyelids (eye #13).
If you’d like your eyes to look wider apart or if your eyes are close-set: Leave liner off of the inner corner or your eye, and be sure to line the outer upper lid. You may also line the lower outer lid if you want (eye # 12).
For a smokey or dramatic look: Line all the way around the eye. The thicker your liner, the smokier and more dramatic the look! You may also want to ‘smudge’ the line with your finger to keep it from looking too harsh. Something to keep in mind, though, is that this technique makes your eyes look the smallest, or the least “open”, so I wouldn’t use this technique if you feel your eyes are small. (eyes # 4,10,11)
To create the trendy “cat-eye” look: Line your eye as you normally would (upper lid, or both upper and lower), and then add a small swipe or ‘wing’ at the outer corner of the upper lid. This ‘wing’ may be as big and thick as you’d like, but generally for everyday wear, a smaller wing is fashionable and appropriate. (eyes #1,2,8)
To make your eyes look more open and bigger: Only line the top lid. If you want your eyes to look bigger, but still like wearing bottom-lid liner, try lining the outer half of the bottom lid. Another cheat or trick here would be to use a white or light-toned liner on your bottom lid. Lighter-shades have an ‘opening’ effect, while dark shades make them look smaller. (eye #9)
To summarize all that jazz: Darker, all-over liner is most dramatic, but makes your eyes look a bit smaller. Lining the top lid gives your eyes a big, open effect, but is a less dramatic, more natural look. And to change your eye shape, add liner to the outer or inner corner, depending on where you’d like to add depth or length to your eye shape.
Use these tips to switch up your look!

Foods that Reduce Cramps
So this week has really been focused on “that time of the month”. I don’t know about you, but during that time, I get some pretty intense cramps and cravings. Today I am going to give you some snack ideas that will actually help reduce your cramps!
Anything high in fiber: Fiber helps soak up prostaglandins (the stuff that causes your lovely cramps) like a sponge and carries them out of your body. Some good sources of fiber are brown rice, spinach, peas, and whole grain bread.
Foods full of calcium: Calcium is known to relieve muscle tension, and muscle tension is what causes menstrual cramps. Drink some milk, eat some yogurt, or even eat dark leafy greens such as broccoli to relieve your yucky cramps.
Foods high in Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 helps to reduce pain and is found in foods like bananas, oatmeal, and chicken breast.
Hopefully these suggestions will help keep your cramps under control next time mother nature decides to visit! Good luck ladies,

Popular Perfume Picks
I’ve blogged about almost everything from makeup to hair products to nail polishes. But one thing I haven’t really talked about is perfume! Many magazines, including two of my favorites, Teen Vogue and Seventeen, have featured some popular perfumes that are perfect for adding on to an upcoming Christmas wish list!
- Viva La Juicy. This perfume is made by Juicy Couture and has an amazing fruity scent to it. You also don’t have to worry about the strong scent fading off right away.
- Our Moment by One Direction. If you love One Direction, then you’ll be sure to check out their new perfume. This scent is super sweet and for sure a must-have.
- Coach Poppy. This perfume is a perfect mix of fruits and flowers. It may be pricey but the buy is totally worth it! Asking for it as a gift is a good idea for avoiding the price!
- Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. I love this perfume. This is a better perfume for fall and winter because it’s not a normal fruity, summery scent. It also lasts for a while so you don’t have to keep reapplying it over and over again throughout the day.
