Jeremiah 33:3

"Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." 
- Jeremiah 33:3

We live in an age where we live behind a screen. Long are the days where we can just enjoy lunch, we all want to document our green juices or salad (I'm guilty of this). Have a conversation without letting others know what it is we talked about, where we are, etc. 

God's word says that if we simply call for him, then he will tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Often times we complain because we feel as if we're stuck in a routine, bored or/and complacent. When all we do is refresh our phones to see who posted a snap or a selfie. Too interested in other's lives to be invested in our own. If we would just reach out to God, he will take you to new places. Pull you out of your cycle and renew your joy. He is a God of truth and loyalty. Keeping his word to those who are faithful in following it.

But our "instant gratification" age is what stops us from reaching out to God and finding those unsearchable things we don't know about. Remember that this world is temporary and that it is all a distraction from what really matters. Which is finding our purpose, what was God's plan for your life? What job did he have in store for you? Why did he create you? Don't be complacent in life, live with a purpose. There will be a day when God asks you, why didn't you search for me? 

Social media is an amazing tool that connects us from those who we would've never had the chance to see/meet. It's when we become addicted to it, that's when it's a problem. When we stop living our lives. Most times, social media just makes us compare ourselves to others. Causing jealousy and frustration because of what we don't do or have. 

Reach out to God, he WILL show up when you call out to him. See what he has in store for you. Everything changes when we manage our time wisely :)

Boyfriend Jeans

What I'm Wearing: 

Rust Top (Forever 21)
Boyfriend jeans (Missguided)
Heels (Public Desire)
Handbag (Zac Posen)

Happy Labor Day weekend! So happy to finally own a cute pair of boyfriend jeans! I had tried so many on, but because of my petite frame - none would fit. I found these on missguided for $28! Here's the direct link: click HERE. I feel like these are perfect because they're high waisted so they cinch you in. 

Since I'm petite, I feel like high waited jeans give me a longer look. Therefore, I prefer high waisted jeans. This bag is another new one that I mentioned in the Nina post. It's from Saks and it fits everything. I kind of don't like such huge bags because they make you carry more things you don't need lol 

Anyway, happy long weekend!

Skincare Routine

Skincare is such an important part of me. I make a lot of decisions based on what my skin will look like after I eat something or use a product. You only have one face and it's so important to take care of it now rather than later :) 

So every morning/night I wash my face with Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. After cleansing in the morning, I moisturize with Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cream. I moisturize with this because it helps prevent my skin from flaring up due to my rosacea. (I've been rosacea free for 4 years) I then apply sunscreen. I don't wear makeup during the week, I think that helps a lot in keeping my skin clear.

At night, I cleanse with the Aveeno cleanser once more. I then apply Beenigma. I looove this! I've been using it for two years. It's bee venom & manuka honey cream, it's used to smooth and prevent wrinkles. I'm so paranoid about getting wrinkles or any type of fine lines around my face lol I know aging is a natural occurance, but if I can help slow down the process then why not... For the final step, I like to apply organic coconut melt under my eyes to brightened my under eye area the next morning. This melt also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

This step is optional - When I have a zit I want to get rid of, I apply Kate Somerville 'Anti Bac' Clearing Lotion on the zit. The next morning it's gone!

During the week I apply the L'Oréal Pure-Clay Mask (detox & brighten). I use this mask 3 times a week to help deep clean my skin from all toxins, dirt, etc. I love the smell of this mask, how my skin feels after and just the overall effect. I think you wear makeup everyday, it's a good way to clean your pores from all the makeup and excess oil.

- Final Thoughts -

Having a regular skincare regimen is so important. Your face picks up all kinds of things from the outside, the makeup we wear, etc.

No matter how tired I am, I always make sure to 1.) wash my face at night. It's like the gym, you hate to do it but you feel better after lol 2.) Eating well is also key to beautiful clear skin. Your skin glows when your body feels good and our body feels good when we eat fruits, vegetables and non processed foods. As hard as it is, we must do it. 3.) Drinking water regularly will also improve skin appearance. 4.) Exercise! When you sweat, pores open up. Sweat expels trapped dirt and oil. 5.) Final thing to do would be to sleep well at night. Our skin looks tired and rough when we don't get enough rest. So put your phone down and get your sleep on (6-8 hours)

I hope you guys like these non fashion-ee posts :)
