Psalm 119:2

PSALM 119:2 

How wonderful is this? 
The ones who keep God's Word are called blessed.
The ones who seek God with all their heart are called blessed. 
Does it mention it's one or the other?
Why would we obey God if we didn't love Him? It's impossible!
Even though sometimes we may reluctantly obey Him, or even disobey Him, He still forgives.
Just like you sometimes disobey your parents, they don't kick you out the the house. 
They still love you.
God still loves you. Everyday. Every hour. Every minute. Every second.

If we seek Him with all our hearts, we must really love Him, and really need Him. Otherwise, why else would we go through all that effort? Isn't it easier to do something for someone you love, rather than someone you dislike? 


We can seek God with all our hearts by dwelling in His Word, by praying, by fasting, by just letting Jesus live through us!

We can obey His Word by loving and appreciating God in every way possible, every day, and always.



Style Diary // April 28, 2015

Today's style diary was a simple one. On Tuesdays I go to UCLA with my husband so I like to dress comfortably since I'm there from 9 am to 4 pm. I don't want comfortable to mean looking like I just woke up and rolled out of bed. I still want to look somewhat fashionable. ;)

God is Love...Life...Everything!

1 JOHN 4:7-8

God is LOVE! 
Love is from God because God is love! Often the world seeks love in various forms, but is never satisfied with their findings. Have you ever felt this way? You thought everything you wanted was in something but at the end of the day still felt empty? That's because God is love, and only in Him will you find TRUE LOVE.

JOHN 17:13

What is the eternal LIFE? 
Knowing the ONE TRUE GOD! 

JOHN 14:6

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the LIFE!
The verse above states that knowing the eternal life is knowing the One True God. Then, this verse states that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the LIFE! 

But God is not just love and life...HE is EVERYTHING! 
See for yourself below... :)

MATTHEW 6:25-33


"Out for Brunch" Top Refashion // Peplum Top out of a Skirt & Shirt

Finally a sewing project! & also new news! I will now be selling some of my refashions & sewing projects in my instagram boutique over at @beebeebtq. 

So anyways, I have been able to settle down and sew something up. I've had this skirt for a few years now but haven't worn it in 3 years! I saw a Free People top that looked similar to this, (I didn't save the image :( ), and I immediately thought of this skirt. I bought this henley top for this refashion & began to work.

1. I measured how much I wanted to add to the shirt. I wanted it a peplum that began at the waist, so I estimated where the waist would be on the shirt & then decided where I wanted the final shirt to end. 

*I wanted to add 9", but cut at 10" for seam allowance.*

2. Then, I marked where the waist on the shirt was, and then measured about an inch down from there to account for seam allowance.

3.  I cut on this second line.

4. The skirt had lining, so I pushed it out of the way. (Yes, I will be using the remaining part of the skirt for another project...stay tuned!) Then, I cut at the line I had made on step 1.

5. This is a general overview of what had happened so far. I made a zig zag and gathering stitch at the top of the skirt part. I gathered it until it matched the waist measurement.

6. This is how it was sewed. The wrong side of the skirt up, so both right sides are touching.

Ta Da! 

PS this top is going up for sale at @beebeebtq, be on the lookout!

I purchased this muted floral skirt at a thrift store and hadn't been able to wear it. Tonight we are going to a church dinner, so I thought it'd be perfect to whip this one out. 

It's a nice and conservative, but not frumpy length. LOL.
& I just feel so feminine in midi skirts!

I've been wanting to wear these leggings AND boots for the longest time now, but just hadn't had the chance. *Sigh* Today's a family gathering type thing, so I wanted to wear something casual and comfy. 

As soon as I put on my cowboy boots, I could not for the life of me get the "These boots were made for walking..." song out of my head!

Psalm 13:5

PSALM 13: 5

Isn't this Psalm so beautiful? 

In our human life we have constant failures from the people around us, situations, and even ourselves. There is always trouble amidst. Why would God let us suffer in our failures and troubles of this world? He wouldn't and He DOESN'T! We can be confident in His unfailing mercy which is new EVERY DAY! (Lamentations 3: 22-23) We can also REJOICE in His salvation, which is given freely to us...because Christ paid it all for us! Be confident and rejoice in the Lord!


Style Diary // April 24, 2015

 I didn't go out much today, but still wanted to look good LOL! It's amazing what a change of an outfit, a little touch of makeup, or even just brushing your hair will do to you. Something so little can make you feel a lot better.

Style Diary // April 17, 2015

While I've been away, I've been very busy starting up my online boutique. My dream is to one day own a mobile fashion boutique, so this online boutique is just the beginning, I'm not giving up! More on that later on...stay tuned... :)

Today's a wedding day! I'm so excited to attend my first wedding here in LA. Two dear saints from our congregation are getting married today, and I'm so excited for them! It's also exciting because...duh! Picking out an outfit! LOL :D 

I've had this dress in my closet since December. I saw it on a Forever 21 window display, and I fell in love. It's pink AND shiny! I just didn't know what I would wear it to when I bought it. As I was putting it on today, I realized it still even had the tags on. Today's the perfect day to wear it.
