1940s style dress

Hi everyone!

I went to a world war 2 reenactment this past January and I found this dress at the flea market. I had some pictures of me wearing it, but not very good ones. So here are some more of the blue polyester dress.

 I added the red and blue fabric to the bodice for modesty and it is actually a hankerchief I also found at the same flea market at a different stall.
 The red sweater I found at a local consignment store in November and the flower I made from a fake orchid I bought at Michaels craft store and the pearls are from Canada.

A big thanks to my friend from church for taking the pictures!

God bless,

Lord of the Rings Elven Gown

I know I am long over due with posting. So sorry I have been absent for so long! Life has been flying by and I have not taken the time to blog much. But aside from that here is my elven gown I finished up Wednesday. I wore the gown today to see the Hobbit the Desolation if Smaug and the movie was epic. Being a Hobbit and LOTR fan I had to dress the part.

 Upon cutting out the gown I thought I had enough for the sleeves, but it ended up I only had enough fabric for one sleeve. So I got some polyester burgundy fabric from the stash that matched sort of to use. That was the only disappointing thing about making this dress.

 Here is a picture I took while I was still sewing the gown before I put the sleeves on.

 I had planned to make this dress for the first Hobbit movie last year but it did not happen. So I made it for the second movie instead. The whole dress is made out of wool crepe except for the sleeves. I ran out of fabric so the sleeves are made of polyester. I trimmed the dress with lace that my sister dyed for me black.
I received many stares and compliments upon getting out of the car and going to the theater. I still cannot believe this dress actually turned out. Being a civil war reenator I am used to gowns taking ages to make and lots of tears, blood, and sweat involved. Making this dress that was not the case. Praise God! It was easy and effortless. So I watched all three Lord of the Rings movies and 3 other movies while sewing up my gown. I used the Simplicity pattern 4940.
So all in all I am extremely happy with how the gown turned out except for not having enough wool for the whole dress. I would have loved for the sleeves to make the same color as the rest of the gown. Oh well! I am a poor elf I guess. ;) I also misplaced my elf ears, so I did not get to wear them. But someday I will! I am determined.

God bless and I will try and post more but I am making no promises.

Delight North Carolina Retreat

Hi everyone,
So I went to a retreat through the Delight group for young women pursuing God through the creative arts. Here are a few young ladies photos and photography webpages. So have a look at their work for sure and enjoy the photos.

The above photo is a picture of every single one of us all together who attended the retreat. There were 16 gals in all and we had a blast. Can't you tell!? ;) Definitely check out the Gorgeous Erin's webpage.

                       This photo was taken by the lovely Megan over at Megan Justine Photography.

Friday evening, I arrived in North Carolina at the guest home with two other lovely gals from my area. I was blown away by the non superficial atmosphere of the whole retreat. Each gal there was real, down to earth, pursuing Christ, and proud of it. :) The moment I hopped out of the car, a whole group of gals came running out of the beautiful green house excited we had arrived with open arms. Embracing the three of us, I could tell there was something different about this retreat from any other I have attended. The difference was it was not a judgmental or negative environment. But not only that, each gal had come not knowing if she would "fit in" per say or be accepted by the other gals who were coming.

This photo was taken by the hilarious and gorgeous Meredith Sledge.

And guess what? We all accepted each other because Christ the Lord accepts us with opens arms even when we mess up. He picks us up every time we fall and whispers, " My maid servant, I forgive you and I will carry you the rest of the journey." 

So as I was embraced with open arms, souls communing with other souls, and much laughter that Friday evening I was blown away by Gods Magnificent love for everyone once again. 

After being awake from 6:30 am Friday until 2am Saturday night after much anticipation, laughter, tears, long conversations, and good food my head hit the pillow wondering what God had in store a few hours later.

I woke up at 6:45am, yep you read that right 6:45am. My body naturally wakes up early because I had to retrain it this year to start doing that. Its really been a blessing for me to get up early and be able to start my day earlier. I naturally get more done in the mornings since I am naturally a morning person. But I realized that I needed more rest since I had only gotten 5 or so hours of sleep. So I spent some time with God, got some breakfast, drank some tea, and pondered what God had done. He had brought me to this house full of souls who also love creating for God. I was really astounded as I had told Erin the night before. Right now in this moment, I am still amazed at how God has changed my life because of my time with Him and 15 other creative minds for a weekend. 

So eventually, a few gals got up one by one and around 9:30 I think everyone was awake and we had our waffles, tea, and coffee, and other goodies. But the thing that was better than all the lovely food for me was the amazing fellowship. We all had never met before in person, but we all felt like sisters already. 

As a gal who grew up with only one sister and no other siblings I always admired large families, or even families with 3 kids instead of just 2. So being with lots of people has always been fun for me and I feed off of it and get inspiration and a sort of high from being around others. But doing some time with God for 2 hours after breakfast made me realize if I just had God and me I would be ok. I do not need people to breathe, I do not need people in order to function, all I need is Jesus. I realized that and now I am content even being alone in regards to people, but just being with God. Its so freeing and I feel so joyful now knowing I would be ok without anybody else. But a few months ago I was not there, but now by Gods amazing and I mean amazing grace I can function with just Him and me if I had to. He is my all in all! We sang the song " You are My All In All" one of the evenings there and it was amazing. I could sing those words and mean it! God is my all in all, no one else is. I myself am not my everything, God is now.

We did our 2 hours of God time and then ate lunch together. Then we did a group photo of everyone, which you saw above after everyone had some more time to get ready and chat some more and oh did I say chat some more. ;) 

Check out the Stellar and beautiful Elizabeth's lovely photography too!

I stayed up till 2 am again after we had some time to share with each other all together as once what God was doing in ours lives. We also prayed for any gals who asked for it then and there. We also watched a movie for the gals interested, while some edited photos, some drew, some of us including me sang along with the movie, and some created or talked. It was oh so refreshing to be around other gals who also creative things on a whim and it was not a thing on my list, but I did it anyway. I do so many things on the fly these days, such as writing a song, writing a letter, singing, playing the piano, or drawing. So it was nice to get to know others who also are creative like that too.

Sunday morning, when I woke I remember saying to myself, " This is going by too fast!" :) But then I said to myself, " just enjoy each moment and don't think ahead to come Monday you will have to go home. Be joyful in this moment Rebecca that God has brought you here to minister to others and be ministered to by others for Gods glory."

We did an impromptu trip to a beach there in North Carolina that was gorgeous! So lots of the photos you will see are at that beach. After Anna Gray took pictures of me I felt like I had let go of any legalistic and terrible lies I had believed for years. I had believed the lie from Satan that I was not beautiful for years, until this year of 2013. I had also believed I should not wear dresses without sleeves or that showed much of my figure. But I wore the dress below knowing it was something God told me through the Holy Spirit gloried Him and it was ok to show my shoulders. :) So I cried when I got home and looked at all the girls photos with me in them when I got home. The reason I cried was because I could truly see that Christ has made me beautiful because He is has made me a new creation. Now I am gorgeous in His sight and I can see that in the photos of myself. Its really amazing that Christ shines through.

So Sunday was amazing as well, with worship of the Lord God as many moments as I could in my head or with a pen, or with my voice, or with my words. I have realized more and more that each moment can be worship and communion with God if we let it just be.

I wanted to let you all know that my outfit is a vintage 1960s cocktail dress. Its the same dress I wore in this post. Also I made the flower crown using some of my own ideas and this video. I was inspired by this pin from Pinterest too. The fake flowers I bought at Michaels Craft store, and of course for a special event you could use real flowers. I hot glued the fake flowers onto a plastic headband I already had lying around my room. :)

My pearl necklace was a gift from my mother when I was probably 10 years old. So its a favorite. She bought it for me when she visited Canada and brought it home to me. I wear it with pride ever since. If you wanted a similar look I know Target and Walmart and Goodwill, Sears, Kohls, J.C. Penny and thrift stores are great places to find fake or even real pearls.

The beaded belt was a steal from Goodwill a few years ago. I believe I only pay at the most $5.00 for it. I know hate me now. lol And the glass earrings were a gift from a choir friend. Thank you!

This photo above, which was also taken by the animated, down to earth Anna Gray is my favorite. The reason its my favorite is because it symbolizes me right now. I am looking forward in the picture, just like spiritually I am looking forward with my eyes on the prize/the goal. My goal in life, to commune with my God each day through creativity and in a fresh way. Jesus I love you more than words can say! 

So Saturday was a blast modeling and taking photos on the beach and then going back to the guest home and making personal pizzas and hanging out. Then Monday morning came all too soon and all the bags were packed and the house of cleaned. It was a long trip home, but it was lovely getting to jam to great music, talk, and ponder what had happened. I was so glad to have met each and every gal who was there! Each of you ladies will forever be dear real friends. I love you all! 

God bless and if you read this whole thing. Woah! ;)

New to Me Vintage Hat

Hi Everyone!

 Today I wore a favorite dress of mine I made a little while ago from Jennie Chancey's Swing dress pattern. Click here to see Jennie's pattern company and click here to see my posts about the process of sewing the dress.

 I hope your Lord's Day was refreshing spiritually as well as physically. For me it was so exciting to see Gods people studying God's Word and talking about the great God we serve together. It was also nice to just sit at home and read a few good books, write a blog post for a guest post on another blog, dream, pray, and spend time with my family.

 A big thank you to Mrs. Van Tuyl who gave me this lovely little black hat. The hat was originally Mrs. Vvan Tuyl's mothers hat. I imagine her wearing this litle velvet beauty to church or to a funeral or a dinner party or another special occasion of sorts. For me church is definitely a special occasion so I decided to sport this little beauty today.

 I am not sure what era it is from, but it is vintage. Mrs. Van Tuyl guessed it was from the 1930s, 40s, or 50s. I would guess from the shape and style of the hat that it is from the 1950s. Let me know if any of you have a guess too! Or do any of you know how to date hats well?

 I love to wear my pearls my mother gave me when she came back from a trip to Canada. They are real pearls, but they are the type that are naturally shaped. So they are not perfect little round balls, but in their natural textured form. My dress is made out of fabric I bought on the red tag sale table from Joann Fabrics years ago when I made the dress of course. I thought it definitely had the 1940s vibe. I believe its a rayon/polyester blend.
 And if any of you are wondering about my hair all I did was one pony tail on each side, sort of rolled backward and then each pony tail on either side of my head in twisted into a bun of sorts. Let me know if any of you would like to see a tutorial in the future. I could definitely do a video. I just played around with my hair a lot this year of 2013 and figured out a style that looks good and stays well for my curly hair type. Are there any other naturally curly gals out there? Let me know in the comments if any of you curly headed or not have tried to replicate vintage hair styles? I am definitely curious.

Love In Christ,

God Is Good All The Time

Hey ladies and gents,

The Lord just inspired me and told me I need to say what He has been doing in my life. Even when I can't see Him working God is still good. 

My 2010 graduation with other friends graduating the same time.
Back in 2010 when I graduated from High School I never thought I would be where I am at. I was worried about the future and anxious all the time. 

 I remember worrying anytime I would go out the door of my own home. I would always think of all the things that could go wrong or just might by chance happened. I was an anxious, worried person and very vocal about that with my words. I also was very negative and pessimistic about everything.

2009, My sister Bethany and I at the art museum.

 God by His amazing, seriously His amazing, amazing grace has shown me in this new year of 2013 I don't have to worry. God has got my back as a friend has always told me. 

2012 with friends a local garden.

  So I want to impress and implore you ladies to not worry about the future! Do not worry! I was enslaved to worry and anxiety and pessimism. It ran my life and therefore I was a very negative and un-joyful person. So please repent of your negativity and be joyful, because Christ for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross! WOW! Did you catch that, for the JOY that was set before He ENDURED the cross. It hit me this year that Jesus joyfully submitted to the Father God by dying on our behalf! So God has been teaching me to kill the god of negativity, the god of anxiety, and the god of worry that was definitely competing with Christs Lordship in my life. 
 In 2012, I was much happier, but still worried about every little thing. Now I have experienced freedom in Christ knowing I do not have to be enslaved to fear anymore. I am a servant of Jesus, not a slave to sin. I always was a servant of Christ ever since He saved me at age 7, but I was struggling with the sin of worry so much. I still do struggle with worry each day, but now I am just so much more joyful because I know God holds my life and each circumstance, each thing I come across to do in His hands. Worry does not have to be my life, Jesus is.

 I am not perfect everyone! I have not figured it all out. I cannot do anything, not even blinking my eyes or walking around without God helping me. So daily I am trying to live with Jesus, beside Jesus, for Jesus.Its tough so many times, so many moments are wasted, so many moments are painful emotionally, spiritually, or mentally. But I know God is God and as it says in Exodus 14:14, " The Lord will fight for you, you need only be still!" 

  God will continually fight for us ladies! He is never gonna lose! Jesus Christ has the victory over sin and death. You cannot conquer those sins areas that are tough for you to overcome alone. Jesus Christ has already conquered them, you just gotta let Him conquer them each second, each moment, and each day of your life.

  I decided to take a swing dancing class and go dancing more often this year of 2013. Its something I had always wanted to do, but I was so much of a worrier I had never tried it on my own before. Now I have taken two lindy hop classes and love it. But my confidence is not in my body, my mind, or my image. My confidence is in Jesus Christ the Lord of the universe. In Him alone I give the glory.

 Seriously ladies, Jesus has changed my life and he continues to do so! My prayer is that He would do the same daily in each of your lives as well. God is real, even when you can't hear Him speak through His WORD clearly to you about something you struggle with or you doubt His goodness or sovereign plan for your life. He is still God, He is the same yesterday, today, and for the rest of our lives. Isn't that amazing? He is never gonna change, even when our emotions do. He is always going to be steadfast in Love, Justice, being faithful, and being the Truth.

Besides reading the Bible, two books that have changed my way of thinking about life are A Woman's Wisdom:How the Book of Proverbs Speaks To Everything by Lydia Brownback and Overcoming, Fear, and Anxiety by Elyse Fitzpatrick.

 Do any of you struggle with worry, fear of man or the future, or anxiety? Its ok if you do because I think everyone does to some extent. God just happened to show me that I don't need to worry anymore because He has got my back always and He has your back too ladies.

In Christ with love,

Unstoppable The Movie and Delight Blog

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to tell you all about a new movie that is hitting theaters September 24th and that is pretty soon, so get your tickets if there is a theater in your state within a reasonable distance. You will not be sorry! My family and I have all been encouraged by Kirk Cameron's other film called Monumental. Unstoppable is the answer/sequel to Monumental. But from what I hear it can also stand on its own, so don't let the fact you have not seen Monumental stop you. 

I also have some blog post ideas that are Lord willing going to be taking shape this month and hopefully be posted by the end of the month or early October. So be on the look out for those. In the mean time do hop over to this blog that I will be doing a guest post series about music for. 

Blessings! Rebecca Ann

Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a Legacy
Click on the button to go to Angie's blog Leaving a Legacy.
Click on the button to go to Angie's blog about childbirth and see her book called Redeeming Childbirth. Its on my to read list. :)

 Hi Ladies, 

No matter what season of life you are in, single, married, young or old you need to listen to this interview with Angie. It was definitely an eye opener, helping me to realize each moment counts. What kind of legacy am I leaving? Is it a legacy that will point others to my Savior Jesus Christ? Does the clothing I wear, the things I talk about, the plans I make glorify my Father in heaven? These are all you might say tough questions, but they are important ones we must think about as believers in Christ.

Angie blogs over at Redeeming Childbirth and Leaving A Legacy and I am so glad my sister Bethany and my friend Jennifer introduced this lady to me.  So definitely check out both of her blogs and if you don't have time for that at least listen to her interview while you make breakfast or fold the laundry. :) Thats what I did today. 

God bless,
Rebecca Ann

Your worth is in the fact that you are His!

I saw this photo on google+ this morning.
 I had to share my thoughts as a response to what this tumbler picture is saying. We don't have worth because we are in a relationship with another human. We have worth because we are children of the Living God!

  I am sharing this to state that you can never put your whole being into a relationship with another person. You will never find true fulfillment in a relationship with a person. The only way to have worth and acceptance is to be washed in the blood of Jesus and have a relationship with the God of the universe. It breaks my heart that girls just like me are trying to find fulfillment and acceptance from a relationship instead of in Christ alone. I tried to find fulfillment in relationships too, but it was empty and cold and dark and my identity felt blurred as a teen. The Lord drew me to His side and showed me my identity is that I am His child and daughter. He wants to have a relationship with me all the time even when I mess up. He does not push me away when I say a harsh word, don't have the "perfect" clothes, and fail to call on Him when I need him. Jesus Christ is perfect, He loves with an unconditional love. A love that is steadfast even when my love for Him is not steadfast. So ladies please look to your Savior who did save you by dying on the cross.

  Don't look to another person to be that savior, they can't, its impossible. No matter all the movies and stories you have heard of the prince who saves the girl. No human being can save you from your sin, only the Lord of the Universe is perfect and has saved you.

  By no means am I perfect, I mess every day in my thoughts, words, actions, and deeds! I don't have this whole being single thing totally figured out or anything either. I am just trying in my oh so not perfect way to live moment by moment with Christ. Look to Him, The Lord God who formed you in your mothers womb before the world was made. The Lord Jesus chose you to be His.

God bless,

Long Time No Talk

Hi My Dear Readers!

I know I have not posted a blog update in forever (or so it seems!)! Thank you to Alison for asking how I was and thanks for sharing your thankfulness for my blog too. :) I was encouraged and touched by the fact that you noticed I had not posted and missed the posts. Also Vicki you left a comment too on my last post and asked how I was doing. Vicki, in April when I posted about that skirt, if I were to respond now my response would be so different. I am not negative and a pessimist like I used to be, God has been making me into a new creation more and more. He has been sanctifying me and drawing me to His side over these past 4-ish months. God is so so good!!!

I am not going to promise I will be posting more frequently now. I have made promises on this blog before and not followed through, so I will not be making promises I can't keep. The goal I would like to set for myself would be to do at least 2-4 blog posts a month about different subjects I have been learning about. Whether that is a book review, my thoughts on the Bible and what I am learning from God's Word, tutorials for how to take care of curly hair, tutorials for healthy skin care, pictures of what my family and I are up to, etc. I want to be more intentional about what I post and that those posts would be well thought out and build others up in the Lord.

An update about my life, my family has been attending one church now since November 2012, so its been 8 months and I have felt God's peace that this is where I am supposed to be. I praise God He has given me peace about this church, because I was so resistant about this being His will for me right now. I never thought I would go to a church that is as large as the one we are attending. 1,000s of people attend this church, so yes its a mega church. But, every Sunday I have been growing spiritually through the worship of our Lord through hearing from His Word and worshiping Him. I look forward to church, where as, when we were church hunting, it was a dread some days. Thank you to those in my life and through the internet who prayed for my family and I! The Lord indeed has done wondrous deeds in my life, a good church is just one of those wondrous things He has done! God is so so good to us all, no matter what we are going through. My life by far is not perfect, because of my sin, I fall short, but as a friend said the other day," The moment we sin we are already forgiven by Jesus!" WOW! The moment I sin God already forgave me?! Thats just amazing and I just can't comprehend how far His mercies are to us each day.

These verses says what I was amazed about perfectly,

"19 For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 5:19-21

"For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly." Romans 5:6

 "Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

He will not always chide,

nor will he keep his anger forever.

10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,

nor repay us according to our iniquities.

11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

12 as far as the east is from the west,

so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13 As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.
17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children's children,
18 to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
21 Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
his ministers, who do his will!
22 Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!"- Psalm 103

" I waited patiently for the Lord;
he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.

Blessed is the man who makes
the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!
You have multiplied, O Lord my God,

your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;

none can compare with you!
I will proclaim and tell of them,

yet they are more than can be told."- Psalm 40:1-5

(All Scripture is from the ESV Bible)

There are so many more verses and things I could say about the AMAZING God we serve. He is just so big and its been amazing me so much how He is over all He has made and it outside of time and space. My dad and others have always told me, "Rebecca God is so big, He is outside of our comprehension of time." All the more reason for me to be in awe and fear Him!
Have any of you been learning about a certain aspect about God recently or have a favorite verse you have been pondering lately? Or maybe you have some to praise God for? A wondrous deed God has done in your life?Just leave it in a comment below or feel free to email me at

God bless and love in Christ!

Kanga skirt Outfit of the Day

Hi everyone! I am sorry for the utter lack of posts on this blog. I have been finding it hard to find time and inspiration for blogging. I thought I would post an outfit I wore yesterday as I thought it was fun and something different that others would enjoy seeing. Jennie Chancey from Sense and Sensibility patterns is living over seas in Africa and has been selling material called a kanga. Be sure to check out her eBay store often to see if she has any new pieces of material in stock. Each piece of fabric is unique and has a saying written on it in a particular African language. Each saying has a blessing or proverb or other message on it. Mine is a blessing, but I forget what it says. I will post that when I find the paper I wrote the translation onto.

My sister Bethany made my skirt for my birthday at the beginning of the month. You can check out her blog post about it here. My scarf was a gift from my mom for Easter and my top is the brand  Liz Claiborne from J C Penney. I love that store! My shoes were from a local shoe store I cannot remember the name of last summer. Sorry for not remembering. They are quite comfy and go with everything.

We are having brilliant spring weather lately here in the USA! I love the weather, but I could pass on the high pollen count. Anyone else dealing with seasonal allergies besides me? Are any of you doing anything special this weekend? My sister and I are going to watch Snow White and the Huntsman tonight to start it out. We have not seen it yet so I cannot say my thoughts on it. I am sure I will have a loads of things I don't like about it to say. Would any of be interested in movie reviews by me? I have thought about doing movie reviews and thought I myself would enjoy reading them. Let me know in the comments!

My family and I will also celebrate another work week done by going to the new burger joint in our town called Elevation Burger. I can't wait! Tomorrow we will be getting the house ready for a single ladies get together after church on Sunday my sister, mom and I have planned. We will have food and fellowship and watch a movie called Shadow lands about C.S. Lewis's life. I can't wait! Its going to be great having all the young women get together.

God bless!

Bohemian meets 1930s Outfit of the day

I am sorry in advance for the poor sound quality of the video with the wind and the lawn mowers at the end. Enjoy anyway though!

I asked the lady who made the hat if she could make it without chains like the one in her shop and she kindly obliged. So do ask if you don't want chains on the side with the bow and she can do that. I love the  big bow a lot!

 Please excuse my headphones, I was walking and wanted music to listen to.

My pashmina scarf is from a store called Compass, which is only in Texas unfortunately. The snowflake necklace from Ashley was fun to wear when the snow came and I love how it sparkles.

 My hat is from Felt Fancy's Esty shop and my necklace was given to me by Ashley from Bramblewoodfashion.

God bless!

I heart Thursdays

This week I have been loving listen to Russell Crowe sing Stars from Les Miserables. At first when I saw the movie I did not like him, but now that I have listened to him and other actors who played Javier I prefer his vocals. You can say," Rebecca you are crazy!" if you like, but I love his interpretation of Javier compared to some of the more harsh vocals other actors have brought to the table.

I have also been loving Emmy Rossum's music. I loved her in Phantom of the Opera and thought she fell off the face of the planet, but apparently she did an album. I wish she would do some more music now!

I especially have been loving a youtuber this week, its Mallory from mallorylovesmakeup.
Her video series on curly hair has really be helpful for me since I have curly hair. She also has a lot of fun makeup videos and hauls too.

I love this hair style and I have rocking it whenever I have 3 day hair thats not cooperating with me. Its easy and I always get lots of compliments on it. The picture of Jessica Brown Findlay from Downton Abby who plays Lady Sybil.

Another great example of the hair style as well from pinterest. I also love her fair skin and red lips. Today I am going to try to find a red lipstick that is wearable for day wear at the drugstore. Pray I find something. :) It seems like its trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Another great example of what a crown braid looks like. I am going to try and get a picture of me with the crown braid this coming week. I may even do a tutorial to post on youtube too. Let me know if any of you are interested!
