He is Faithful

Exciting things have happened since my last update... Dainon and I have moved into a new bigger and beautiful place! We are finally starting to get settled in and loving our new home together. Shoutout to his awesome family for all of their help moving us in, they were amazing! It wasn't all easy... we had some leaks, and an air conditioning problem where we had to go without a/c for 3 nights. If you know me and my dramatic self that was hell in itself. Thank God it has been overcast because otherwise I don't know what I would have done in full on Texas heat with no air. Anyway, that's finally fixed and hopefully we don't run into any other major issues.
Other good news, I got a full time job at a laser spa, which seems like it's going to be a great job for me! I will be working mostly afternoons/evenings which should work out well traffic wise, and Dainon has late classes anyway. I will have some time to sleep in and run errands if need be in the mornings. The Lord always provides and this situation was no different. He put us in a great area and gave me a job doing something that I love with room to grow and be successful. I am very thankful!
So far I am loving it here and I can't wait to see what God has in store for us!

Philippians 4:19
 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

Psalms 36:5  
Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

Lamentations 3:22-23
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;  his mercies never come to an end; they are new  every morning; great is your faithfulness

Thanking God for supplying for all of our needs, for being faithful, and for always keeping His promises!

Empties Lately

PCA Clearskin moisturizer- I go through this about every 4 months or so and it still amazes me that I'm sticking to the products I love and see results with! This is definitely a favorite of mine and I've already repurchased!

ZO exfoliating polish- I love using this stuff 2x a week for a quick physical exfoliation. I already have 2 back ups!

Lulu Organics hair powder- I really liked using this in place of a dry shampoo. I like the ingredients in this product and it definitely soaked up any excess oil! I would definitely purchase the full size of this although it is pretty pricey!

ZO daily power defense (full size)- Obsessed and will continue to break the bank for this product! I honestly can't go without it. It is a very lightweight moisturizer with plenty of actives (little bit of retinol, antioxidants, little bit of hydration) and my skin loves it.

Marc Jacobs Twinklepop in Volver- If you know me at all, you know it is so hard for me to fully go through a makeup product! I am always wanting to try new products especially when it comes to eye shadow. This is SO easy to do in the mornings before work and I still look put together. I love how neutral but pretty this color is and I already bought another in this color and one in hunny bunny! Absolutely love these!

Mychelle liquid tint SPF (not pictured)- I love the coverage that this tinted SPF gives, and it doesn't feel heavy. It has a matte finish and somedays I will skip foundation and use this with a wee bit of concealer under the eyes instead! Does the job beautifully!

EltaMD UV Clear- This is my every single darn day facial SPF and I just love it! It has niacinamide in it to help keep the skin clear, it's so light weight, and sits well underneath my makeup! I already have two back ups of this as well! Forever love this sunscreen.

EltaMD UV Pure- This SPF is purely a physical block and does NOT budge. This can be used on the face and body. This formula is 90 minutes water resistant. I wear this when I go for a run a and I don't sweat if off. I also use it on vacation (used it on our honeymoon the whole time) and it works really well! This has a slight white cast, but I don't mind that. Definitely have repurchased.

Urban Decay Deslick setting spray- I did like this, but I didn't repurchase this one, I went for the original setting spray when it was on sale and feel that they work the same way. My makeup definitely lasts longer when I use this and I'm not near as oily!

What products have you gone through lately that you love??
