Inspiration Saturday.

 "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
   Ephesians 4:26-27
I love this verse and the visual it gives. It is so easy for the devil to take over when we are angry. He swoops in as quickly as possible, oftentimes before we even realize it. We must remember, even in our anger, to resist the devil, with the aid of the Holy Spirit. And when we do, it feels so much better. Anger subsides, and we see a clear picture of the Redeemer and His grace. 

Here's a little black and white inspiration in an attempt to take my mind off the scorching weather. Here in NC it's in the triple digits with our usual high humidity. A recipe for disaster, if you ask me.

I love this post featuring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. Such cuties.
I learned about some great beauty foods thanks to Refinery 29, here. Salmon all day every day.
Here is a great post on summertime beauty.

Have a great weekend, everyone! 



O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Psalm 63:1

Sorry for my lack of posting this week. It's been a crazy one. I'm debating on whether or not I will actually post about the details. But anyways...I hope you all have had a wonderful week! I promise to post more next week. Let's hope I keep it. 


July Wish List

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.
    John 4:23-24

Just a few things I'm wishing for this month. :) 

July Wish List

I am in desperate need of a new bikini. 
I went to Chanel last week and they used this fantastic bronzer that can also be used as blush. How perfect. 
I have been wanting a French press for a while. And of you use one? Is the coffee really THAT much better?
My otter box is pretty tired these days, I think it's time for an upgrade. These Lifeproof cases are awesome! I would love to take some underwater pictures. 
And these J. Crew pants are so wonderful, they're all I'm thinking about lately. 


Poolin' It.

     You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds...
    Ephesians 4:22-23

I would love to be wearing this stylish ensemble to the pool, basking in the sun with a great read.

Inspiration Sunday.

I have failed yet again to post this on the intended day, so here is another Inspiration Sunday. 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
   Romans 15:13

This song is on serious repeat. 
This photoshoot of Tavi Gevinson is so lovely. 
And this sermon is exactly what I needed to hear. 

Enjoy your Sunday. 



And He has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
    1 John 4:21

Here is my version of some casual pastel color-blocking. My first, might I add. I have always been more of a print+solid kind of girl, but I decided it was time to jump on this bandwagon before it passed me by. What do you think? 

My many animals love to visit me in the backyard!

Last Week.

To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
    Philippians 4:20

Here's what I was up to last week. I was babysitting the most adorable girls and caught them as they jumped in a freezing pool over and over again. 


At the Beach.

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
    Romans 8:26  

Last week I went to the beach for a couple days. This is the outfit I wore to bingo night at the club. 

It was quite breezy.   :)

Have a great Monday! 


Inspiration Sunday.

I know I usually post these on Saturdays. I have been all over the place lately, and have had unfortunate internet accessibility. So here is an Inspiration Sunday. 

  We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.
    1 Thessalonians 4:14

post that have inspired me this week:
DIY your own flower crown here.

I would love to escape to the English Countryside here. 
I love all the photos of this Wild Horses editorial.
Here is a great recipe for a homemade sweet lemon tart.

Have a great Sunday!
And Happy Father's day to the best dad in the whole wide world :) :)
I love you, Daddy. 

Rag & Bone Resort 2013.

 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
    1 John 4:18


I am in love with this collection from Rag & Bone. I want it all!!! 

Foster the People.

I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
    Philippians 4:13

Here's what Taylor and I wore to the Foster the People concert on Sunday! 
It was such a fun concert. Kimbra and The Kooks opened up and they were great. When Foster the People came on the entire amphitheater turned into a big dance party. It was definitely one of the most fun concerts I've been to.

Great Falls.

The mind controlled by the sinful nature is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.
    Romans 8:6 

On Sunday morning we visited Great Falls. It was such a beautiful place and a perfect morning.
