So a few things have changed since my last "life update"... Some good changes! I scheduled a throat scope to try and see what was wrong with my stomach because I had been getting stomach aches not only with gluten and dairy and what not.. but also simple things like fruit! It was pretty frustrating.. But before I went ahead and scheduled it I started to cut out processed food and sugar and I felt SO good! The stomach aches for none allergy things went away and I started to feel pretty descent. I went ahead and scheduled the appointment just to see what the nurse had to say and she said I needed to eat gluten for two weeks. I was scared to be in so much pain for two weeks but I went ahead and ate a donut..and another one..and  a bagel..and some pasta.. And no stomach ache! For dairy or gluten!

So. I don't know if God healed me or my cutting out bad food healed my gut. But I'm very happy! I'm still going to eat the same..but now am going to include things like quinoa and oats which I couldn't handle before!  Very excited :)

                                 Here's some summer fashioin inspo for you. I just love white.

It is so hard in this day and age to feel good and confident. Meeting someone who is truly comfortable with who they are is so rare- when I find people like that I am so drawn to them and want to ask them what there secret is. "How are you so confident?!" I think however happy and content we are with ourselves, we will still always have those days where were extra emotional and feeling pretty down about ourselves. For those of us who struggle with insecurities and self worth, I wanted to share a few tips that have helped me personally to feel more comfortable and happy. 

1. It Doesn't Matter!
     I think this is the most important point I can make..It doesn't matter what size jeans you wear, what color your hair is, how strong you are, how many friends you have, where you shop, what you look like, what you have accomplished, or how outgoing you are..None of these things matter. Whether it is superficial thing like clothing, or a great goal like getting a promotion, none of it matters. I've met women who were absolutely stunning and I was so jealous of them but when they opened up to me, I realized they were just as insecure and unhappy as I was! The first time I realized this I was so shocked. I thought "Wow! She has everything I can she still be unhappy and uncomfortable with herself?" What should this tell you? It's all a heart issue. Whether you have everything or nothing, happiness and confidence comes from inside of you. It's a constant battle..but it's always a choice.

2. Social Media and Comparison.

     Stay away from social media! Crazy notion...I know. I'm not saying to delete all those apps and throw away your laptop. But I've realized that the more people I follow on Instagram the more insecure I become. I start to compare myself to all these women. I have actually found myself wanting things I didn't want before, and even disliking...dare I say hating the things about myself that I used to love! 

3. Judging.

     We often get so upset at others for judging us and making comments about our own life. And I agree- it is VERY frustrating! But have you ever stopped to think if you're doing the same thing? Maybe you're not gossiping or make mean comments left and right, but when you fill up your mind with concerns and judgments on how everyone else is living and how they look, you aren't much better than the gossipers and the "judgers". I don't mean to point fingers- I'm guilty too! But next time a thought pops in your head about someone else that maybe isn't rude- but isn't uplifting, make it a good thought! Disregard it and pick out something you like or enjoy about that person.. Pretty soon that positivity will surround your thoughts and you will feel better not only about others, but about yourself as well! It will be more natural for you to pick something you like about yourself vs. something you're unhappy with.

4. Focus on the Good Things.

    I've found that I feel my very most beautiful when I'm doing something good. When I'm laughing with my nephew, decorating and making dinner for my family..doing devotions and praying..going on walks and being in nature. Insert whatever it is you like to do here and I'm sure you'll realize you felt beautiful while doing that! Beauty is not limited to lipstick and heels. While that's fun and makes you feel pretty..Beauty is an essence and it is more sustaining than anything you put on your body can do for you. Following your passions and feeling alive is more beautiful to me than anything else. Those who live life to the fullest and love unconditionally are the most stunning and beautiful people I have ever met.

Product Review: Long healthy Hair for Summer

I have another product review for you all! I wish I did these more often..But I haven't been totally in love or totally hated much products lately. Except this one..So excited! I've been trying to grow my hair out forever but it seemed like it was always stuck at the same length because my hair would grow a certain amount and then just split and I'd have to get it cut. I was on the market for some good products to help end this awful cycle and I finally found one! It's the It's a Ten Hair Care leave in treatment. I don' t know what kind of magical things they stuck in this but I had only been using it a few weeks before I noticed my hair feeling healthier and the split ends were almost completely gone!
Another thing I really love about this product is that it makes my hair feel all glossy and healthy like it does right after I get it done in a salon. Love love love loveeee this product! I've told so many of my friends about it and even strangers. It's honestly that good. So go out and buy it. Now.

Hair Extensions

Hello Lovelies! I got hair extensions about two months ago from Bellami and I wanted to do a little review and also show you a few of the ways that I style them!:) I never wanted to get extensions.. But I've always wanted long hair and mine just takes forever FOREVER to grow. I've been trying to grow it out for at least 5 years now and it feels like its in the same place..So... I researched the best extensions and all the youtubers I follow all said that this line of extensions were the best they've ever used!

So far I've absolutely loved them! It's still a little bit of a challenge for me to do updo's and such, but I love how they look just down and curly :) If you have any questions on what kind I got or anything just let me know! :)

Goodwill Finds!

I went shopping at Goodwill a few days ago and walked out with four dresses and a romper. (quite successful if you ask me) The first dress I'm going to feature on here was $6.00 but it was half off so I got it for $3.00 !:) I wish I would have worn higher heels because it is fairly long, but other than that I loved it! It has pockets and its super flattering and sucks in the waist. It's also vintage which makes it even more fun :)
