Do you ever just put on an outfit and immediately feel wonderfully exactly like YOU? I wish I had this outfit in a bunch of different colors/combinations because it just made me feel good. It was as if all of my favorite things culminated into one perfect look. A new shade of black cherry lipstick, hair actually done up for once in my life, a simple dress with a special collar, and some vintage footwear too!
Lipsticks are a funny thing for me. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm kind of on a lipstick kick lately. I never bought any in previous years because I was always afraid of commitment when it came to the color. I had no idea what looked good on me. It's a family trait with my sisters and I that any lipstick we put on instantly changes into some sort of pink shade. Take this color for instance-it is Revlon's creme lipstick in Black Cherry. It looks very dark in the tube, almost black-but on my lips it becomes a saturated shade of magenta! It just takes a bit of experimentation to find what works for you. When I first started buying lipsticks I wanted a vintage red shade, so I bought a few that looked very typical bright red. When I put them on, however they would look almost hot pink! Not exactly what I wanted...I'm still searching for that nice vintage red in a lipstick that won't make me broke. Had any luck ladies? Please share!
Another bit of house news too-one of my good friends is a realtor and I mentioned to her tonight that Sean and I were looking at houses. She offered to be our realtor for us and help us find our house! We're on kind of a short timetable so we will need all the help we can get. I am so grateful for her willingness to jump in and help us. What a blessing!
God Bless and happy Wednesday friends!

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
