NICHOLE NORDEMAN THE UNMAKIING CD AND GIVEAWAY

3 comments

I love listening to Christian music, the difference is that it's like listening to a love song to God or God expressing one for us through the lyrics on that particular song.

I'd rather hear a track that will uplift my spirit than hear a break up song, or one with sexually contained lyrics.

I want to feel comforted, joyous, positive, peaceful, liberated, healed the list can go on and on and that song can make an impact in my life.
That is why I choose to sing Gospel music because I love to convey all of that in my lyrics.

Today's blog post is about a beautiful Christian female singer named Nichole Nordeman who conveys all of that in her newly released cd called The Unmaking.


About the new album The Unmaking:
"Before things in our lives can be resurrected and given new life, certain things must die.  Before beauty blooms in spring, roots must do the hard work under the hard frozen soil of winter.  Before you renovate and re-build, you tear down the parts of the structure that are weak or damaged or dangerous.  Before we make, we must unmake."  Nichole Nordeman 






The Unmaking has 6 tracks:
1. The Unmaking
2. Not To Us
3. Name
4. Love You More
5. Something Out Of Me
6. Slow Down

Nichole's sweet melodic voice is so so soothing but yet piercing to the soul. The cd has a combination of contemporary and soft pop.
She's definitely a story teller in her lyrics, meaning she interprets her lyrics with authority and conveys that to her audience.

About Nichole Nordeman:
Nichole Nordeman is a recording artist and songwriter for Sparrow/EMI CMG, with numerous number-one and top ten singles to her credit and cumulative CD sales of over one million.  A two-time Gospel Music Association winner for Female Vocalist of the Year, she has won a total of nine Dove Awards, including the best-selling album, Music Inspired by The Story.  Her best-known songs include "Holy", "Legacy", "Brave", "This Mystery", "Why", and "What If".  She lives with her family in Tulsa, OK.  




ALBUM RELEASE DATE:  AUGUST 28TH

This Vogue of Eden white Panda T-shirt is adorable. 
I matched it up with some red shorts and the outfit looked really cute but it can also be worn with leggings, jeans and some cool fashion accessories. 

I like that the top is long on the back and it's got a scoop neck design that can be worn over the shoulder as well.

This is a very comfortable 100% cotton Tshirt.

Austrian Crystal Statement Necklace

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes

This gorgeous statement necklace from JoinME truly makes a bold statement.
Although it looks looks gaudy in style and design, it's actually really beautiful and makes you feel like royalty when wearing it.

The necklace is quite heavy and it looks like metal armor when reversed on the back with the figure 8 chains.
The detailing ranges from Austrian crystal embellished flowers that reflect in the light and smaller designed flowers ranging in different materials.

This necklace is so exquisite it looks great by itself without wearing any other piece of jewelry.
I wore it with a black striped loose flowing chiffon dress and black heels. 

I felt elegant classy and ready to go to an opera, ballet, walk the red carpet but I ended up at a woman's conference which was great still. :)

I received the JoinMe necklace in a big red box with a bow, and velvet pouch for storage and an extra lobster claw clasp to fasten the necklace incase the original breaks.
This is truly an extraordinary piece.
You can get this exquisite piece on Amazon

A Classy Chiffon Dress

8 comments

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes

I have to say this dress from Sixkiss is beautiful but it is very sheer.
It has a mid thigh black slip but the legs are exposed when the light hits so when I wore it out I used black Capri leggings to solve the issue, for other women it might not be an issue but I'm a modest dresser so I need a bit more coverage.

The sizing is confusing I'm 36 B , with a 29 1/2 waist and at 5'2 tall 115 pounds. 
I ordered a large because they say it runs small but that was not the case for me.
I found that it was a tiny big on me from the shoulders and I had to keep pulling the dress down to even them up.

The length of the dress is perfect and you can choose the wrinkled look like I did or iron the pleats which I didn't do because I was nervous I would burn it because of the delicate chiffon material.
The back has a top button and a bottom button and unfortunately when it was time to take it off, the bottom button fell off. 

And because the dress was a bit big on the top I had to wear a tight tank top so my skin wouldn't show by the under arm area.
Overall, this is a beautiful classy dress for a special night out but it does have some flaws for me in sizing and fit and sturdy closure buttons. 

I will now have to get it sewn to get the perfect fit.
In the pictures below, I decided to wear a bold statement necklace with it and some 4 inch heels.

Stay tuned for a review on this beautiful necklace but for now you can find the Sixkiss dress on Amazon.

This Is One Classy Jumper

Leave a Comment
Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes at a Discounted Price 


This is such beautiful and classy one shoulder jumper from AChicGirl.The polyester material is soft and very comfortable and it has 2 side pockets.


The jumper I ordered was in size Large because my measurements are 29 1/2 waist and 36 B in chest and my weight is 115 pounds.

The flare leg portion of the suit fits perfectly and the hem length is great for my petite frame of 5'2 but it looks way better with my 4 inch heels.

I really do like this jumper and it's made in good taste quality and design.Because I'm a bit modest or a conservative in my apparel choices, I will opt to wear this jumper with a sweater, jacket, blazer or a cute blouse like the one in the picture.

I paired this jumper up with a statement necklace and it combined the ensemble beautifully.The AChicGirl jumper is available on Amazon for $15.99 and comes in Medium, Large and Xtra large.


It was a tiny bit big on the side where the zipper is located so it needs to be taken in at the seam. 
I chose to wear a strapless bra so the shoulder would be bare as well.

A true story about death and life.



About the book:
Paperback; 245 pages
Pastor Don Piper died January 18, 1989 when a semi-tractor truck crushed his car.  Declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene, Don's body lay under a tarp for the next 90 minutes.  Don's soul, meanwhile, was experiencing love, joy, and life like he'd never known before.  Don was in Heaven.  

When another pastor's prayers helped bring Don back to life, he became a living miracle! Yet this is one miracle Don wished never happened.  Heaven's bliss was replaced by excruciating pain and emotional turmoil.  With the support and prayers of his beloved Eva, their three kids, and friends near and far, Don clings to his faith in God and fights to regain a semblance of his previous life.  The Piper family's incredible true story of perseverance and overcoming the challenges of life - and death - will bring hope and encouragement to all who see it.

Tribal Bib Necklace

4 comments
Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes

This is such a beautiful bib tribal necklace from Join Me. 

I thought it was going to be huge on me but when I received it and tried it on, it actually fit perfectly. 
You can choose to wear it tight or a bit loose.
In my mind, I wanted to remove the spikes in the detailing and design but it actually all comes together nicely.

The necklace is antiqued gold toned and it's a bit heavy but not too much to bring weight or strain on your neck.

The picture in the ad does not capture the true beauty of this torquoise bib necklace but in person it comes to life with vivid color and style.

I chose to wear it with a simple yet classy navy blue scoop dress and with the necklace on, it transformed the look of the dress and turned into a bold fashion statement with pizzazz.

The bib necklace from Join ME also comes in a beautiful gift box and nicely presented and makes an awesome gift to yourself or someone special.

This exotic bib necklace is fabulous and I can't wait to wear it with some jeans and a tank top, that's the beauty and versatility to this beautiful piece of jewelry, You can mix it up and make a fashion statement in minutes. 

Here are some pictures of me wearing it... Oh yes, you can find this beauty on Amazon for $26.99.

Lamora Beauty Kabuki Brushes

4 comments



Press SampleProduct given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes at a Discounted Price 

This 6 piece kabuki brush set from Lamora Beauty feels like the high end brushes without the high end price.
The bristles are dense but super soft.

They apply makeup flawlessly and they pack on the colors wonderfully.
The white handles are long and the logo Lamora is etched on each brush handle.

I experienced no shedding with these and no scratchy feel either.

This set has all you need to create a beautiful makeup look regardless if you are using liquid or powders because these brushes can be used with these types of formulations.

I used the flat top face kabuki brush for my liquid BB Cream and stippled it on my face, then I used a liquid concealer with the same brush.

For my mineral powder foundation I used the bigger fluffy face brush. 
For my cheeks I used the blush brush and then used the same brush for my highlighter.

Now when I used the shadow brush included, I noticed it was not a big brush but a small one that can also be used for detailing but it worked well packing and applying the color on my lids.

The fluffy blending brush was soft and it did a nice job of blending and for adding my browbone color.
The liner brush in this set can also be used for the brows but I chose to use it for my purple liner and the results were great.

I'm very pleased with this set and happy that it comes with a carrying case formed like a cup holder for storage or travel. 

You can find the fabulous kabuki set for $24.95 on Amazon.

Bell Bottoms Are Back

Leave a Comment
Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes at a Discounted Price 


These Zoozie LA high waist bell bottoms are very comfortable and they fit me well but unfortunately they are a bit long on me since I measure at a petite 5'2 inches tall. 

I ordered a medium because my weight is 116 pounds and my waist size is 29 1/2 so the waist part of the pants fit just right plus since they are a stretch material there is still some wiggle room which is great and makes them comfortable.

I love the breathable material and the way it feels, soft to the touch. 
The tie dye design on the fabric is not overly exaggerated and can be worn with almost any color top because the pants are a dark grey with navy blue and a lighter gray making it a beautiful unique combo of colors. 

In the pictures below, I decided to pair them off with a black solid tank tee with ruffles, gold bangled earrings and cream cuff bracelet with some 4 inch heels. 

Because the pants are a bit long, I will have them tailored to fit my height but overall I give these bell bottoms a rating of five stars because of how breathable and comfortable the material is and the tie dye design. 

You can get these cute bell bottoms in different styles ranging from small to size large on Amazon for $38.99.
