Born Pretty Store is an online shop where a lady can find (almost) any accessory or beauty item that her heart desires. For my mini shopping spree I picked out a cute fuchsia cell phone case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and a silver rhinestone band ring. The package arrived within ten days which is fast for overseas shipping. I am enjoying the items I received and can’t wait to check out what else this online boutique has to offer.

You can see my review and hear my thoughts on this boutique in my latest video. CHECK OUT VIDEO FOR A DISCOUNT COUPON TO USE ON YOUR Born Pretty Store PURCHASE.

Happy Reading: Wives of The Bible

Let me start with a disclaimer. If you are a wife that doesn’t desire to grow then this blog post is NOT for you. If you are a wife that is perfect and refuses to acknowledge that life CHRISTstyle requires a daily flesh death and consistent reminders via the word, then this blog post is NOT for you. However, if you are a wife that seeks The Lord daily for guidance and strength to endure until the end and desires to be a wife of the word not the world then you’ve come to the right review. Also if you love your husband first and truly delight in serving him because it honors Him then definitely keep reading for something awesome to add to your library.

With that being said here are my thoughts on Wives of The Bible by Jolene Engle

Wives let me just tell you I’ve had a great time with this book. This book has shown me who I was, currently am, and given me hope for what God is shaping me into. I am a wife that gets excited about operating in my creation role so to read a book that recognizes that and supports it is so refreshing. I’ve shared this book on all my social networks while reading it and so many women have told me how much they enjoy it.

I definitely desire to be a wife of the word and not the world so I can’t wait to discuss this book with other wives. The most AMAZING thing about this book is that I realized I’ve grown tremendously but I wasn’t discouraged when reminded that I have more growing to do. That’s what I got from this book. Every wife has an Eve moment, Lot’s wife moment, and even a crazy Job’s wife moment but eventually by God’s Grace we will grow into the Proverbs 31 Woman. Through our growth we will also become part of the most glorious, one time only, extravagant and holy wedding as the Bride of Christ.

I could go on and on but that’s what the video version is for. Check out my recent upload to hear my detailed thoughts on this book.

My Mary Kay Story

I was nine or ten years old when I started asking about Mary Kay products. My mother was a customer of the brand for years and I always admired how she applied the products. Once she told me that I could have my own set of Mary Kay products at twelve I counted down the days until that birthday. Little did she know, her makeup introduction would give me the most important training every young woman and MUA needs; great makeup begins with great skin care.

It was at my first Mary Kay party that I learned that you shouldn’t sleep in makeup as it ages your skin fourteen days. It was at my first Mary Kay party that I learned you shouldn’t pump your mascara because the air dries it out. I also learned that there is a red blush and lipstick for EVERY complexion. Oh and I can’t forget that you should exfoliate your skin weekly and to use your trash day as a reference. Yes, I learned so much at my first Mary Kay party.

Even though I have a love for the company I’m not a representative. I know, I know, I know. I do like the old school skin care products and I swear by their acne treatment gel but I don’t sell it. However, I know several women that do sell and will share their information if you’re interested in trying out the products I used for this neutral look.

I recently reviewed a few products from Jessica Woolridge and I was impressed with how well the makeup looked on me. I also tried the new Botanicals skin care but found that I prefer the old school “formula 2” system I was introduced to or the newer Time Wise system.

A big thank you to Jessica for the opportunity to revisit Mary Kay and be reminded of how I was introduced to great skin and makeup. Be sure to check out her online store for your Mary Kay needs.
