Its a Confetti Nail Party!

If you can’t be at a party, bring the party to you!

Charlotte Russe‘s Nail Polish line, Love Charlotte has some of the prettiest colors for this season. I purchased a pastel peach polish and a gel polish with assorted colored confetti sparkles.

Charlotte Russe’s Love, Charlotte Nail Polish. ( Peach and Confetti)

The pastel peach polish is a lovely color but unfortunately, I had to use 3 coats to get the look I wanted. My first coat of the pastel peach polish was streaky and extremely light!!!

The Gel Confetti Polish is not the gel polish that can be done at the nail salon but it does have a gel consistency, that I adore!! I plan on trying to use this polish by itself. The light pink tint with the assorted confetti sparkles are simply beautiful! I think it looks better in the bottle!

I am not happy with the results, but the confetti effect does remind me of a party theme!

“Where is my ADAM” – Heather L Lindsey

If no one else will admit it, let me be the one to tell you that as a college student trying to religiously stay on track is a constant struggle. It is so easy to get distracted and just when the thought of having everything all figured out and being on track comes along the result somehow shifts, causing a result of having to start over. Everyone wants to be with someone, have someone to talk to, spend time with and so on but too often its with the wrong person that we want these things with. Something I have realized is that regardless of how many times you try to do things a different way, (YOUR WAY) it always comes back to having to follow His way. God is constant, He is omniscient, omnipresent and more importantly He is ALWAYS there! I follow Heather Lindsey on twitter and not only does she tweet inspirational messages but her blog posts are well worth reading. I came a cross this post tonight and it couldn’t have been posted at a better time for me. Thankful!

Acts of Faith -I Am free to be a sexual being.

Everything, even darkness and silence has its wonders. – Helen Keller

A history of abuse and labeling has created a tremendous strain on the sexual consciousness of people of color. The ancestral memory of being labeled as animals to be studded and bred has made us fearful of our sexuality. What we must accept and learn to understand is that we can be sexual and be spiritual. Even in the abuses of the past, people of color were capable of loving and sharing that love through sexual expression. We prayed for our freedom and the safety of our lives, and we still made love. Although the abuses have changed, any of out fears have not. Right now, there are many people of color who become anxious, nervous and uncomfortable in conversations about sex. We do it, but we hide it. We make jokes about it in private; we tell stories about it in secret; when it comes to talking ans sharing openly about sex, we shy away. Try this. Sex is wonderful. Sex is good. I like sex. Sex likes me. But don’t take my word for it; try it yourself-with the lights on.

I Am free to be a sexual being.

We all want to fall in love. Why?
Because that experience makes us feel completely alive,
where every sense is heightened,
and every emotion is magnified.
Our everyday reality is shattered
and we are flying into the heavens.
It may only last a moment, an hour, or an afternoon,
but that doesn’t diminish its value,
because we are left with memories
that we treasure for the rest of our lives.

The Mirror has Two Faces

Expectations and Influences

I’ve been wondering why its so difficult to find a companion. 

It could be for the simple fact that your not suppose to search for love, love is suppose to find you. But I think it goes way beyond that. We live in a world full of so many expectations. Its cliche to start with this but as an infant your expected to eventually walk as you grow. As you get older, your parents have expectations for you. And those soon become your expectations, until your old enough to develop your own. However, in a world where media influences today’s society, are you really as an individual making your own expectations and standards, or are you being influenced by things around you to make them?

How can any individual truly find what they want if they’re constantly comparing someone to an idealistic figure? 

Perfection is one thing but in some cases people don’t always except people for their flaws. I found this quote recently, “ Everybody is quick to tell you how great or different they are, But who is willing to admit their flaws?” and it really made me think.

No one you ever meet will come out and admit their weaknesses and problems. Its usually something you find out along the way and most of time before its too late. That could easily imply that some people don’t think anything is wrong with them. But deep down, everyone struggles with something. 

I’ve learned from past experiences that its okay to have high standards but you have to take into consideration that no one is perfect, and not everyone is going to fully meet all of what you want. Also, you shouldn’t settle for something you know won’t work just for temporary happiness.

This was just a few things going through my mind.
