Ralph Lauren Rose Gold Crystal Stud Earrings




I simply love rose gold....it's by far my favorite!  I paired these elegant Ralph Lauren earrings with a beautiful rose gold necklace that I got as a Christmas gift a few years ago.  Rose gold is known to be a color that symbolizes warmth, compassion and kindness.....maybe that's why I felt so timeless in these earrings.  Thank you Ralph Lauren for offering such beautiful jewelry!

Bravelets For The PCOS Foundation

"The mission of the PCOS Foundation is 'to spread awareness through public and professional education programs in order to improve the diagnosis and decrease or eliminate the lifetime risk associated with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)."


This cause is personal for me as I have suffered with PCOS since I was 13 years-old.  I remember being 13 and spending a week in the hospital.  I was in so much pain and the doctors could not figure out what was wrong with me.  I wasn't diagnosed then but instead went many years having cyst rupture after cyst rupture after cyst rupture along with a ton of other health issues. I was diagnosed with PCOS 18 years ago after a major cyst rupture and surgery.  I didn't really understand it then, all I knew is that I was in pain and tired of the hospital.  It wasn't until after I got married and my husband and I started talking about having kids, that I really started to research it.  I knew from personal experience that women with PCOS had a higher rate of infertility and/or miscarriage, so that brought me to a point of wanting to understand it better.  Now that I was married, I wanted to be healthy and for once, smart about this.




I have come a very long way on my journey.  It's been frustrating, painful (emotionally and physically), enlightening, moving and brave.  I have met and spoken with some of the most amazingly brave women you will ever meet who brave this PCOS journey alongside me.  We cheer one another on, encourage one another and work with one another on bringing awareness to this very serious illness!  Two weeks ago my husband and I finally got the answer to why I continue to miscarry.  After years of so many questions, it all came down to one hormone that my body doesn't elevate enough during pregnancy.  Once the pregnancy hits a certain point, the baby doesn't make it. Now with an amazing PCOS specialist helping me to naturally get my levels where they should be, hopefully one day soon, I can carry a baby to full term.


 

To show your support, please visit Bravelets and purchase your favorite bravelet and show you support the PCOS Foundation!



I also added my Give Grace tattoo because showing myself grace is a huge part of my journey.  You can read more about that here.



No matter what you struggle with and no matter what your journey is.  
I pray you find your BRAVE in it!

Jesus, Love & Lipstick

I have been so excited to announce this y'all!!!



I have decided to become a SeneGence Distributor! Before I tell you how I made this awesome decision, let me first tell ya that I have been using SeneGence LipSense for over a year now!!! The first time I ever used this was my very first appearance reading to children at my local library as Mrs. Lubbock America!!! I had LipSense in my makeup tote for about two weeks and just hadn't had the time to experiment putting it on (there are a couple of steps to it) BUT I had seen all of the pictures on Facebook and I NEEDED something long lasting since I would be speaking! So, I gave it a shot and NEVER TURNED BACK since!









As you can see, I need lipstick that will stay on for hours without having to worry about it coming off, smearing or looking sloppy!!! So, when my first distributor slowed down selling and my  best friend, Margo started selling Senegence, I was excited to have a full time distributor again! Becoming a distributor was far from my thought process but then....it happened! I signed up!!! 

WOOP!!!!!! 

Look at how amazing this lip stick is..... I can take a drink of coffee and have ZERO lipstick come off on my mug!!! *sigh* Magical Makeup.....yes, please!!!! 



If you would like to learn more about SeneGence and/or LipSense then feel free to join my Facebook Group or shoot me an email at jesusloveandlipstick@gmail.com or call/text me (806) 730-1100! 

Why "Jesus, Love and Lipstick"? Because I plan on my business being about self love and finding that self love in our beautiful Savior....while we look and feel fabulous! Can't wait to share more about this new chapter with you!

For the look below, I mixed Roseberry and Goddess together!!! Yeah, you can mix and match too.... I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!! 




Confessions Of A Trauma Junkie By Sherry Lynn Jones - Five Stars

The health industry, such an amazing and brave profession to go into. I admire all first responders and nurses in this field. They exhibit a beautiful heart and calling that is specifically gifted to them. It's a gift that I have always admired from a distance but was never called into it, which is why I loved reading Confessions Of A Trauma Junkie.

This book takes you into the day of the life of a nurse paramedic. This book will make you cry, hold on to your seat and at times giggle a little as Sherry brings some humor into this book from time to time. You will find yourself sharing in these experiences and emotions that come with medical trauma. You will read about life on both sides of the gurney and prison bars and both the professional and personal emotions from these view points. As you turn the pages, you are taken into unique experiences as a first responder.

This book elevated my respect in this field. Thank you Sherry for sharing your insights that brought out many different emotions as I continued to read! Beautifully written and definitely a page turner!

"The Happiness Perspective is a superb account of positive choices, exercises, and plenty of questions to ponder. I will be using it soon with my women's groups." --Barbara Sinor, PhD, author, Finding Destiny

"Profoundly transformative, The Happiness Perspective is a brilliant, comprehensive blueprint for self-awareness, inner peace, and the attainment of ultimate happiness." --Dyan Garris, author, visionary mystic, and New Age recording artist

About the author
Author, teacher, and perspective changer Diane Wing, M.A. enjoys exploring the mysteries of life and the way that people experience themselves and the world around them. A phenomenologist at the core, Diane uses a variety of techniques combined with discovering unique patterns experienced by her clients to reveal a deeper understanding of the self and to shift their perspective enabling them to move past obstacles that keep them stuck.

Diane Wing is dedicated to helping people get grounded and trust themselves, so they can live a peaceful and fulfilling life of joyful self-expression. She inspires others and teaches them to safely tap into the energies around them to turn anxiety into tranquility. Her clients are those who are ready to stop struggling in their personal life so they can feel their best. 

Wing sees connections between things that seem disparate to others and can help you see their significance in your life. She’s an idea person who helps you shift your perspective to see yourself and your life in a whole new way and is a master at bringing magick into the everyday. She wants to live in a world where people feel inspired and motivated to evolve beyond their current way of being. As a Perspective Changer and Blockage Buster, she’s a wiz at helping people find their Inner Magick to help them be happy in the present while creating their ideal future.

To that end, Diane Wing created a body of work focused on knowing the self at a deep level in order to build self-trust and self-confidence. Her books, both dark fantasy fiction and enlightening non-fiction, hold lessons based in Universal and Magickal Law and energetic consciousness. Her games, Pathways and Insight Stones®, are systems of metaphysics designed to facilitate self-discovery, develop intuitive ability, and to enhance self-awareness. The emphasis of her school, Wing Academy of Unfoldment, and of her radio show, Wing Academy Radio, helps students and listeners learn ways to take metaphysical and personal development concepts and apply them to everyday life in their own distinct way. It’s about going deeper and seeing the patterns of your life.

Wing’s books create a transformational experience for the reader while incorporating a bit of the unexpected. Many say that her fiction has a sense of Karmic justice rendered within the realm of the unknown and that her non-fiction brings about a heightened awareness of the self and the world to enhance understanding of our own internal transformations. According to Diane Wing, “Ever since I was little, the world felt magickal. [Magick with a “k” is used to differentiate the magic of an illusionist or stage magician from the magick that includes your intuitive abilities and tapping into the flow of the Universe). The world was beautiful and mysterious, filled with things to learn and experience. The path led me to become a lifetime student of metaphysics, mysticism, magick, and spirituality and to achieve a Master’s degree in psychology…and it all shows up in my writing. You never know what’s waiting around the bend.

“The world still feels magickal to me; every act of nature, every energetic exchange, every new discovery is perceived through the eyes of wonder. I now understand that self-knowledge is the key to all magickal operations; the discovery of our own Inner Magick is essential to living in concert with the Universe. We are the Magician, as in tarot, orchestrating and creating life in accordance with our true self.” Diane is an avid reader, bibliophile, lover of trees, and a lifelong learner. She and her husband are pet parents to a sweet little Shih Tzu.

The Happiness Perspective By Diane Wing - Five Stars

Are you in a season of wondering how to be happier? Are you waiting for life to be "perfect" so that you can finally feel happiness and joy? If that sounds like you, then you must read this book. If you are a spiritual person in any way, then you will find that this book helps you to see life from a perspective that changes it all!



I started reading this book during a time of lots of change. My husband and I just moved cross country from Texas to Washington, I hated the new job I was working and I was missing my family and friends back home terribly. I was also going through some time of healing from multiple miscarriages and some other disappointments along the way. Needless to say, I found myself battling lots of depression and grasping at moments of joy. Thank goodness I am blessed with an amazing and rather humorous husband who does a GREAT job of keeping me laughing.....but something was missing within myself. When he wasn't around, I felt major sadness. I know my happiness shouldn't be dependent on somebody else being around me, so I knew something was wrong.

Over the past week, I have experienced amazing transformation and breakthrough in my life. This book has been a part of that transformation. I experienced my own spiritual moment with God along with reading this book and I couldn't be more thankful for Diane's willingness to write a book that could help so many people.

Diane starts this book off with encouraging her readers to check in with themselves and with their own thoughts before taking anybody's advice, including hers. Immediately, I trusted her. I knew when I read that sentence that she cares about her readers and that her writings are a mission! I'll share with you just a few of the "life changer" quotes that resonated with me.

"Perception is reality, and so the way you see and define something determines your feelings, behaviors, and interpretations of it."

"Reject relationships or circumstances that are unhealthy for you and that create energy drains."

"Maintaining a false self is hard work and a recipe for unhappiness."

"By understanding your belief system and how it aligns with your core self, you understand your true nature and stand in it in every circumstance."

Those are just a few of some of the golden nuggets in this book. Diane's writing is articulate and brilliant. Some might call it a little "new agey" but I call it wise! She does talk about the Universe as a being. If you do not believe in the Universe as a guiding figure (as I do not) then read it from your own spiritual perspective. Even though my spiritual guidance comes from a Heavenly Father, I was still able to get from this book, the happiness perspective. I understood my own belief system and how it aligns with my core self. :)

This book is a must read!

Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster - Five Stars

I'm a Texas gal living in the Northwest Pacific where I'm greeted most mornings with fog and rain. So, to say I was ready to be taken to a beach where joy and romance were waiting on me, is an understatement. Melissa did an AMAZING job taking me to that place. Her words and creativity brought me to a place of peace and joy. Thank you Melissa for taking me out of the gloomy clouds and giving me some moments of sun, love and the beach!

Desiree is living in Virginia as a preschool teacher who has never really been close to her mother or half-sister. One day she gets a message from her mother that she needed to get to Bayside for the summer. The message appeared to be urgent so being the good person Desiree is, she did it. Desiree has two surprises as she ventures off to visit her mother. She meets a Washington D.C. business man named Rick who is in town to help a pal. She also gets to her mother's house to find her sister had also received the same message she had.

I got lost in this story. As I got to know these characters more, my heart felt for Desiree, Violet (her half-sister) and Rick. It was a sweet experience to read how these families come together and the role that each character played in this beautiful story! If you enjoy romance, love, family and sun then you definitely want to read this book!!!



NEW RELEASE........

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

In Bayside Desires...
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:
