a reminder of true beauty

just love her blog! and love this post :) a great reminder of what beauty truly is and where it comes from...

tonight i was feeling a bit low...i made the mistake of looking up my ex-bf and his new gf on fb...and well, we all know what that leads to and of course, no good comes of it. i felt myself comparing who i am to this new girl and thinking why couldn't my ex-bf have loved me as much as he loves her? why couldn't he have been more honest with me, and treated me better? why didn't our relationship last? is it b/c she is more beautiful than i am? i was seeking answers to stupid questions :) i know in my heart that our relationship would never have worked out...no matter how much i wished or willed it...no matter how much we both said we cared for each other..b/c God's hand was working in all of it.

these feelings made me feel, how do i put it? a bit ugly...but then i was reminded of the Lord's love and how beautiful it is to know the Lord and His precious love. i still have my struggles about my ex-bf but know that we are both now in better places in our lives :) i still pray for him and his happiness, and pray that the Lord is blessing his life. it's so easy to hold on to those ugly, nasty feelings, thoughts and memories...but the Lord wants us to let go...to let go of these burdens and give them to Him. we all have little (or big) bumps in the road, but it's so comforting to know the Lord is always there by our side. i wish my ex and his new gf all the best :) (yes, yes i know it sounds super cheesy and corny but it's a genuine feeling and hope that i have for them).

ok on a side note, i found THE perfect fuchsia lipstick!! and pink pants this weekend :) 

YSL rouge pur number7
um, seriously. the search is over. i have found the perfect bright magenta lipstick. i'm crazy over the pigmentation and texture and even the after effects of this lipstick (even after most of the color has worn off, it leaves a pretty pink stain - seriously no joke). plus it has spf 15. i have pigmented lips, so colors always change on my lips...but not this one. i'm in love and will probably wear this lipstick everyday :) no foreals, i will (even to work)!

AE pink jeggings
sooo, i've always made fun of jeggings (jeans + leggings) but when i saw this hot pink color i HAD to have it. tried it on and it fit like a glove and c'mon..this color, couldn't pass this by! wearing this to work tomorrow :)

hope you have lovely night filled with beautiful dreams! xoxo
