4 Days B 4 Christmas

I am so very last minute this year!  Uggg! I wish I could wave a magic wand and it would all be done, so I can just sit back and enjoy.......

Quote: “No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.”   -Amelia Earhart

Beauty tip: 
Rub a couple of drops of coconut oil between your palms. Your hands will look shiny in the light. Then scrunch the oil into your dry hair, starting at the ends and working towards your scalp. Leave this “conditioning” treatment in your hair. You won’t even notice it, but you will notice that it works wonders in keeping frizzies and fly-aways in their place – completely out of sight!  

Bible verse: Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.  “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;     Luke 6:36

Might I also ad, today is the last day to vote on the "what would you like to see, or see more of poll".  So don't forget to vote!

Quote: Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.

Quote:  Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect. It means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” -Devon Dashelle Wesley

Beauty Tip: To even out your skin tone use this mask 3 times a week:
Ingredients: Baking soda (about 1Tbs) and add just enough water to make a slightly runny paste.
Directions: Apply the paste to a freshly washed face and let harden for about 3 minutes.  I have seen a vast difference in my appearance!  Hope it helps.

Beauty tip: Before applying nail polish, rub your clean nails with a witch hazel soaked cotton ball.  This will prevent bubbling in your polish and also act as a barrier between your polish and nails so as to prevent staining.

This is so amazing.  That is  all I'm going to  say.  This has brought tears to my eyes to think that we are so caught up in what WE want and NOT what we DO have.  They are all bones, dying from hunger, and we have the opportunity to EAT to the point of dying.  We are so selfish.

Cute Rocker Nails:)

I saw these and they were on my nails in like 5 seconds flat!  They are so cute and oh so easy!  It took me about 10 minuets per hand.  Also I would like to welcome are new page "Fun ways to sign a Blog, E-mail or Letter" It features 35 creative ways to sign before your name in a letter, blog or e-mail! Check it out!
 All you need is tape and the 2 nail polish colors you want to use (I used black and pink) 

Put one piece of tape straight across the middle of your nail (so one side should be completely covered up and the other side completely exposed)
Now add another piece of tape running up and down. (you should have a small box area 1/4 of your nail)
Paint that box black (or your desired color)
After about 1 minuet peel of the vertical piece of tape.
Paint the other side of the box your alternate color (the other 1/4 of your nail)
After both sides are COMPLETELY dry, peel of the piece of tape that was splitting your nail in half.
Now you should have no tape on your nail, put one piece of tape running up and down creating a box like before. Paint the box black (or desired color).
You should have 1 1/4 of your nail left, paint it your alternating color.
Your done and have very adorable rocking nails!

Miss Elaini'ous.

Hi Guys,  Today I want to share about a determined young woman named Elaini, who has created the website Miss Elaini'ous 1 Dress. 100 Days. For orphans.  Her goal: Raise  $50,000 for the orphans in India. For the 100 days she wore 1 dress every day!  Now she is on day 173 and has raised only $39,124.14.  She needs help to fulfill her dream/goal of raising $50,000 for the Warm Blankets Orphan Care.  This is what Elaini says in her blog:

Miss Elaini'ous Day 1

This blog’s goal is to use fashion to help orphaned children in India.
Orphans in India can’t go to school without a uniform.  However, they often don’t have clothes to wear.   Growing up surrounded by turmoil, human trafficking, and loss, an education can help these orphans dream about a different life.  I have been given so much that I can have “fashion,” while these children struggle to stay clothed.  I have to do something.  I’m hoping you’ll do it with me.

Here’s the deal: I’ll wear a black dress for several months (don’t worry—I’ll have two of the exact same style so that I don’t start smelling) to identify with the children who only have one outfit.  I’ll accessorize it in different ways, take a picture every day, and blog it.  Think of it as a dress marathon.

  Here’s where you can help.  I want to raise $50,000 for the orphans in India.  I’m going to wear this dress as a reminder of these children.  Would you help me help them?   Through partnering with Warm Blankets Orphan Care, let’s dream big for these children who may never get the chance to dream at all unless we do something.  Even the smallest gift will make a difference.   

THESE are the kids Elaini wants to help, THESE are the kids warm blankets helps.


 Its hard for me to think that these kids are living on the same earth we are, yet just look at them, then go look in the mirror or just around you.  We like to do the hole "Poor me thing" at this point NONE of are complaints even begin to compare.  We aren't going hungry, we aren't scared for are life everyday, we aren't drinking polluted water or living in huts of dirt.  WE live the life of luxury, WE live the good life.  So.... no more complaining on our part, we could ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, be them.

I really encourage you to click on the links provided and pray for Elaini.  Pray for these kids, pray for there futures.  If you are or aren't in the financial place to donate to Elaini's cause, pray.  Every prayer counts!

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.
Proverbs 31:8-9

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. 
Psalm 68:5
