Vintage Gwen Chapel-A Golden Nugget of Wisdom




Psalm 18:30
 As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord ’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.


Lil' Hunkie has been in school for about a month and a half now. And let me just tell you....the morning routine hasn't really smoothed out just yet. There's still whining, etc going on! I realize that I'm in for the long haul on that!
One bright sunny morning while driving to school, into the sun mind you, more whining came, this time that the sun was in his eyes. Well guess what he had in his backpack? Yep, sunglasses.
Whine, whine, whine!
And then came a nugget of wisdom from momma. 
After reminding him he had sunglasses in his bag he kept whining. 
Finally I said...
"Don't complain when you have the solution in your hand."
Golden I tell ya, golden!!
Alright, it was really a nugget from God.
Because at that moment God reminded me that I too, have the solution to the things I whine about in my hand. It's called the Word of God, it's Him. 
He is all we need in every situation.  
Amen? Amen!

Be blessed lovelies!

Chic Couture-August & September Beauty Boxes

Well, I didn't mean to have to do August and September beauty boxes together! 
I've been so busy it's just not even funny! 

August 

Went with the Bombshell box in August.  Loved that gold glitter! And the eyeliner pencil is good.
Tazeen-full coverage Bollywood Gold Glitter
Neha-Sari Magenta Shimmer
Gel Eye Glider in Smoky Plum


Made a secret store purchase too! I wanted to try the Oxygen Base and Top Coat duo. So far I like it, a mani probably lasts about 4 days.  Have you tried these? Thoughts?


My favorite thing out of this is the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara! I actually used everything else except the sheer glo, which I haven't been brave enough to try yet,  as gifts. I like to share!! Of course, another cute bag!


September  

September's box was the Boho Glam with a Plush Pout Lip Crayon. And I added on Ana, a white jagged glitter topcoat, so fun! I'm not impressed with the lip crayon shade. I chose Aurora Pink and it reminds me of the free lipstick you get with Clinique. Sad face! I'll have to keep trying to find a lip gloss to help it out!
Mary Lee-Oxblood stain
Erin-Oyster grey creme


I loooove the bag it's self this month! I got a red lipstick and even though I didn't really need another red, it is a good lipstick! Good coverage without staining the lip! The brush is good and I haven't used the eye pencil, Briogeo deep conditioning mask or the all in one toner/serum/moisturizer yet. They all sound great though!


Fun stuff as usual!

My DIY Sharpie Mug Experience




Ok lovelies.  DIY Sharpie Mugs are nothing new.  But since I made some I thought I'd share how the process went for me.
I joined a Fall Mug Swap on Instagram last month and could not find what I thought was the perfect mug for my buddy.  So I thought it'd be cool for her to have some scripture mugs in my handwriting. 
I picked the tips I thought sounded the best basically!  
And those were to clean the mug with rubbing alcohol, let dry for 24 hours after decorating, place in cold oven, turn oven on to 450, once heated to 450, bake for 30 minutes and then completely cool. 
So here's how it went....
First of all writing on a mug is not as easy as it seems! Using the rubbing alcohol I started over so many times! Once I liked them, I let dry overnight then did the 450 oven baking and let them cool in the oven. 
Well that was too hot for the pink sharpie! It faded! I was so sad! So I went back over the pink parts and did the baking at 350 instead and it was much better! 
The only thing I didn't do was see how they stood up to the dishwasher.  I did use the rubbing alcohol after the first failure baking and the green was set so I'm sure that with hand washing they should be just fine!  I don't know about you but I don't put 'special' mugs, even store bought ones, in the dishwasher. Just one of those 'Jennifer' things!

Despite the writing part being tricky, I love how easy these are! And the possibilities are endless! 
Have you made some of these? I'd love to hear about your experience!

Happy Thursday!!
