Fashion Friday || Abriana P.

Hi girls! I’m Abriana, a Christian culinary student and entrepreneur currently living in Alabama. I love art, food, fitness, Ultimate Frisbee, acting, and travel. 
I really appreciate Eden’s desire to encourage all of us in the area of fashion! I’m sure you all have already thought through your reasons for dressing with class and grace, but here’s a little extra encouragement. We do not know what a day will hold. Each morning we should wake up and do the best we possibly can, with the resources God has given us, to put in order and beautify our appearance. That doesn’t mean we need to wear our Sunday best every day. Usually what looks the best is what works the best for the job at hand. Sometimes putting together a classy outfit takes considerable energy and effort, both mentally and physically. But consider this: who might you meet today? Your future spouse? Your next employer? A potential client? You will feel so much more rewarded, confident, and productive if you greet each day with a put-together appearance. It should reflect the state of your heart. If your heart has been purified by Jesus’ blood, and you're striving to be a thoughtful and beautiful woman inwardly, then let your clothing reflect the beauty that God has given you. I always feel like it sends mixed signals to see a Christian woman who puts little or no effort into beautifying her outward appearance. Don’t be hesitant to “waste” a tasteful outfit on a quiet, secluded day. Better to be prepared for anything (it never fails to be the off-days when I am in sweatpants or haven’t done my hair that someone unexpected drops in)! And chances are, you’ll always be around someone who appreciates your efforts, even if it’s “just” a family member.
I’m a bit of an Amazon.com junkie (Amazon Prime, anyone?), so this dress is my latest find from there. I’m about 5’8”, so I was pleased that the length turned out to be conservative. The dress is pretty casual, being denim, so I dressed it up with a suit jacket for a going out/church type of outfit. 
It was a simple hair day, but braids are really in right now, so if you have long hair you have it made.
A quick word about makeup. Don’t be afraid of it! It’s one of the most feminine and classy things you can add to your ensemble. Have fun with color! God delights in it and so should we. Remember to focus on either your eyes or your lips when doing makeup, not both. I’ve never been a candidate for the cute, perky red lipsticks because my eye features are naturally extremely dark, so bold lip colors tend to look overdone and too dramatic on me. I always go with natural lips or a light gloss.

Dress - Amazon.com
Jacket - thrifted
Belt - Amazon.com
Necklace - Cato
Bracelet - JCPenney
Leggings - Walmart

Boots - JJill

Fashion Friday || Shamber F.

 The attire you see is actually all purchased second hand at a nearby Goodwill. I honestly do not even know the brands, though that doesn't seem to matter to me! As long as I can find cute modest clothes for cheap, its a steal!
I am wearing a chocolate skirt, a cream crocheted top that is tucked in. layered with a pretty fall scarf, and one picture with a Falls Creek coat!
Makeup: On top of the eye is a green olive eyeliner, followed by a gold cashmere on top. To pop my eyes out a bit more, I added a fine black liner to the eye on the top and bottom, and ended it with a coat of mascera on my eye lashes. 

Hair: Well, due to my ethnicity, I actually put a lot of Blue Magic in my hair. This is a heavy grease, that I would NOT recommend for any person unless you are birachial! haha 

For my jewelry I am pulling off a vintage look with a pearl necklace I got at a Goodwill, and pearl bracelet and earrings to match. 

About Me:
  Shamber is a good mixture of both an adventurous and dramatic girl version of Indiana Jones and a traditionally dressed up Southern Belle. She was born December 8, 1997.
  She was adopted into the Flore family at the age of 7, along with her 2 other sibling: Sierra and Christian. She is very enthusiastic about sharing her gratitude to both her parents and to the Lord for his grand rescuing hand in saving her from unsafe life.
Some of her goals she hopes to achieve are a wife, mother, and something along the lines of reformed theater/audio/filming.
  Shamber accepted the Lord’s voice calling her to his side in Spring 2011. She was convicted after going to her first Father Daughter Retreat that Vision Forum had hosted. Seeing the love and joy in all the girls there at the event gave her a completely different view of the Lord, what he can do, and what he wanted her to do. The Lord continues to change and mold her after his own heart!
  She enjoys just about anything that involves filming or acting in some way. She hopes to one day either run a Reformed drama school, make godly audios, or even make Reformed movies. It depends what the Lord is asking of her, but she feels strongly that the Lord is calling her to the filming/acting industry in some way. She feels that this sort of ministry can influence louder than what most think.

You can get to know me and my family by going to my website. There you will find day to day photos of what is happening at the "Flore Ranch," and articles I have felt convicted to write!

His Handiwork Jewelry || Review & Giveaway

Hey Everyone! 

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Yes. I have been busy. Very busy... that's why you haven't seen me around here much. ;) But hey, here I am, along with a very special review and giveaway!

His Handiwork Jewelry

Two of my favorite products (trust me, I have way more then just two favorite products!) from His Handiwork Jewelry would include...
The Leather Wrap Bracelet -- $7.00. I have one of these and LOVE IT!
Chinese Disk with Teal -- $6.00

For this review, I told Emily that I cuoldn't pick out my favorite product, so maybe she could just surprise me with anything? She knows me well and sent me this adorable (neon) green bracelet!

My Thoughts ~ This bracelet is simple, yet so tasteful! It's a bold color, and very versatile! 
I found that this bracelet adds a great burst of color to an outfit, and is great for layering!  (Yes, layering. For those of you who know me well, you will also know that one of my favorite bracelet "tricks" is to layer them. For those of you who don't know me... well, you just learned something about me! :P) I also love the pattern of the beads, and the fact that it's very well made! 

Oh, and I have to mention the clasp on it... sounds dumb, but I hate those jewelry clasps that are really small and super hard to use... this one is very functional, is "operated" easily, and actually adds a very cool touch to the bracelet! 

So yeah... basic, yet classy. Straightforward, yet stylish. There are so many different styles and tastes rolled into this awesome bracelet!

Overall, I love my bracelet... everything about it is awesome!  
I'm really going to encourage you all to head on over to His Handiwork Jewelry and maybe do some Christmas shopping?? ;)  Just a heads up, Emily is doing a huge Cyber Weekend Sale that includes 15% off your order, and FREE shipping on orders $35 and/or over! :) So what are you waiting for?! Head on over to get an awesome deal on high quality jewelry, custom made designs, excellent customer service, and the list goes on and on! 

Summary: 
Rating: 5 Stars!
Favorite Detail on Product: I think I would have to say the color? Yeah... color rocks.
Probability to Recommend to Friends: Oh yeah... I'd totally recommend His Handiwork Jewelry. In fact, I already have. ;) 

In closing, a HUGE thank you to my awesome Bestie for making this review and giveaway possible! You're awesome, Emmy! <3

Fashion Friday || Hannah A.

Hi everyone! First of all, thanks to Eden for a) inviting me to do a Fashion Friday post, and being patient with me! I’ve been wanting to do one for a while, but for one reason or another, it’s just now happening. 

My name is Hannah, I’m 18 years old, and the oldest of 7 children. We live on a small ranch in beautiful central Oregon. I’ve been keeping busy lately with the National Bible Bee, and working on my family’s recently released film, ‘Labeled’ (www.labeledthemovie.com). I also enjoy reading, playing music, learning new things, photography, cinematography, editing, making new friends, and spending time with my younger siblings. 
About my outfit: Dresses are probably my favorite article of clothing ever!  They’re easy, cute, and versatile, and can be dressed up or down for different occasions. Plus, most dresses can be worn in multiple seasons, with the addition of leggings and/or a sweater or jacket.  

 This is the outfit I wore to a wedding a few weeks ago. The ceremony was outside, so I added a denim jacket in case it was windy or cold.
Outfit Details~ 

Dress ~ Macy's
Boots ~ Macy's
Jacket ~ Old Navy
Tights ~ Unknown.


So what do you think? Would you wear an outfit like this?

Hey Everyone! 

I recently shared with you all about, Twice, one of my favorite online consignment stores!!! Today, I'm going to step by step show you, how to make your first purchase, 100% for FREE! (Including free shipping!) Read on! :)

Step 2: Now that you have an account, you will be credited with $10 that you can use for your first purchase!!!  Now, you need to go to liketwice.com and pick out what you want.  I would suggest picking an item that is right around $7.00ish max... just to make sure you get free shipping too! 


Step 3: Once you have your item picked out, add it to your cart! You are now ready to check out! 
When you click to checkout, you will see a banner in the right hand corner that looks like this, I promise, you can't miss it! ;)
Step 4: Click the red button that says, "Enter Billing and Shipping." Enter your address and other information, and click next.  You will see a window pop up that is telling you to enter your credit card. Unless you have a credit card and want to enter it, don't. :P haha 
Step 5: Instead of clicking "Pay with Credit Card", click "Pay with PayPal". This will allow you to avoid entering a credit card number and signing into PayPal. Sneaking, huh? ;) 

 Step 6: Lastly, you need your 50% off coupon code! You can get that by click HERE, scrolling down to the bottom, and clicking on the link! (The link is near the bottom of the post!)

Step 7: Enter the coupon code at checkout. Your order total, including shipping, should be 100% FREE! How easy was that?! You didn't have to enter a credit card number, sign into paypal, and best yet, you didn't have to pay a cent!

(At least $10 per order! And if you start selling your old clothes with them............;))  I think that's my favorite thing about Twice! So yeah, what are you waiting for?!?! Go make your first purchase, FOR FREE, and start earning credit!!!!!!!!!! (Note: only 1 free purchase per household. Making multiple accounts with the same address is not permitted and won't work. :))
