This year’s May is full of so many maybes that my head is spinning. The stress has taken a toll on me. I don’t even try to lose weight but somehow I’m almost back to my high school weight. I guess then the stress is not a bad thing.
My heart feels encouraged and yet stung by the verse our church focused on this week. “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18. Gah! Such a hard command yet something I must be mindful of. I am weighted down even more by my own complaints and rage. I need to keep this verse in my mind at all times these days. Rejoice always….rejoice always…rejoice always.
My aunt this week got me something pretty nifty this week:
I’m so broke from getting a gift for my mom (for Mother’s Day/ birthday) and my sister (for her birthday…which is today!) that I haven’t really bought anything recently. I have had a bad habit buying things just for the sake of spending money after a stressful day at work. What I really need to do is go to God. Anyways I have been using the most out of the products I own. The Aveeno tinted moisturizer in medium has been a godsend. I feel like after using Aveeno products for my skin, I’ve had less breakouts! I use Aveeno smart essentials nighttime moisture infusion at night (obviously). On the other hand, I’ve realized that the Origin A Perfect World moisturizer breaks me out…which is a bummer since it’s so much more expensive than Aveeno.
Another makeup product I’m loving is Diorshow waterproof Mascara in blue.
I have gotten so many compliments on my eyes. People are like…are your eyes purple? Are your eyes blue? The wand of the mascara is a bit too big for my liking but the formula is wonderful…it lengthens, it gives a lot of volume, and it curls my eyelashes all day. This Diorshow and Estee Lauder Double Wear mascara has been best for my eyelashes. I’ve tried drugstore brands like Maybelline Falsies and L’Oreal False Lashes. Falsies is too wet and smudges. L’Oreal one flakes easily :T. I guess I have to pay the for the higher end brands on mascara.
This week I went to my first engagement party…amongst my own age group. A girl from my church is getting engaged…and she is younger than I am! I guess when you find the right person God chose for you, age doesn’t really matter.
Music I’ve been loving:
Girl’s Generation new song “Baby Steps”
