Since this was one of my most viewed posts, I decided to update this tutorial. It was about time, right? :)

Hello! Today's sewing tutorial is for all my skirt ladies who have a skirt they love, but it's just too big, so it never gets worn. Or if you see a skirt you love while shopping, but can't find your size. I will teach you how to fix a denim skirt that's too big. This method can also be applied to jeans that fit too big on the waistband area.

I found this skirt while shopping at Burlington and I immediately fell in love with it. It was too big, but I bought it anyway, because it's hard to find a good denim skirt and the pearl detail is adorable.


Psalm 90:2

"Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting, You are God."

Psalm 90:2


Isn't this so wonderful to hear? Before anything that we know was even made, God was already there! He is above all. Notice how the verse doesn't say, "You are wonderful, awesome, amazing, powerful, almighty, etc." Of course God is all of the above, but this verse just says, "You are God." Why? Because He is everything! When we have Him, we don't need anything else because He is everything! In Him we have all that we need! God was here before anything we see was. God was here before the WHOLE WORLD was brought forth. You don't need a world of your own, all you need is GOD! 



Style Diary // March 3, 2015

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. It takes awhile getting used to a new home. My little hometown, Newman, is ridiculously different than Los Angeles. I'm in my second week here now, and just getting adjusted to all of this. I have come up with my regular posting schedule now, thankfully. Anyways, I wanted to share my style diary for today.

Whoever abides in me and I in him, 
he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me 
you can do nothing."
