Stylish babies wear moccasins (+ GIVEAWAY!)

Pretty Little Treasures

Slaiden One 1-5

A little while ago, Slaiden got the cutest little baby moccasins. After I saw them for the first time, I immediately knew that I had to get him those. I really like him to be dressed well every time I take him for a walk to the park or the beach. Other moms and au pairs (like myself) have probably experienced already that it’s not always easy to put shoes on baby feet. Sometimes it takes me up to 10 minutes to put shoes on the little guy’s feet. With these cute shoes I don’t have that problem! 😉

HONOUR & HONESTY

It’s a very awkward moment writing an intro for a new blog. As I have just discovered after trying to write this piece for almost two hours. I’ll start with a few things I would love for you the reader to know about myself. This is my journey. Welcome!

So I guess I should start with the most magical and empowering thing I have done to date. Honour.

My daughter entered this world on the 3rd of September 2013, weighing in at 8 pounds 15 oz after a difficult pregnancy and a torturous three day labour. She was long, olive and chubby with a head full of jet black hair, grey eyes and rosy red lips. Healthy.  Perfect.  Bliss. Blessed!

Lipstick Reviews At Your Search

revlon super lustrous

This revlon super lustrous lipgloss fooled the hell out of me. Look at it. I expected it to look like it does on my lips but was upset to see that it looked like a regular lipgloss with a small speck of pink. I use it as a moisturizer for lipsticks with ugly pigmentation. I picked it up and thought it would be like those nyx cream sticks but I was sooo wrong. Maybe I didn’t pay attention to the labels but whatever. It’s okay far as the gloss but if you expect color, then this is the wrong thing.

It’s a pretty little tube to carry around but that’s about it. Regular gloss stick with a solid looking color is what the description should be for this haha. Don’t mean to be blunt but it’s the truth.

Hope you enjoyed my opinion on revlon super lustrous.

A Baptist girl does Lent.

Uncategorized

So this whole idea of Lent is a new thing for me. I grew up never really hearing of it in my church. But my husband came to me this week and asked if we could do it this year. He had a great idea for what he wanted to give up – but for me it wasn’t really a huge sacrifice. I mean, if Lent is supposed to be an act of denying oneself certain luxuries in order to take part – a small part – of what Christ suffered for us, it had to be something that was truly a sacrifice for me.

So… “Lent. It’s the preparing the heart for Easter. Like going with Jesus into the wilderness for forty days, that we might come face to ugly face with our enemy. Our sacrificing that we might become more like Christ in His sacrifice.”

If you are a regular reader of LuLuChris58 or know me personally then you know that I love the late great Teena Marie! She is one of my favorite artist of all time gone too soon. I wanted to take the time to honor her on her day! Although I never had the pleasure of knowing Lady T personally, I made a connection to her through her music at a time when I needed it the most.
Happy Bday Lady T! Rest in Peace!
