Reverse Makeup Challenge


This post is very important to me. I hope that all my readers take time to read through and watch the video! I’ve been getting a few people asking me for a makeup tutorial {though Lord knows why… I basically slap some foundation, mascara, and lipstick on ;) Haha!}, and as I was thinking about it, Allix’s video that she made a few months ago kept popping in my head. I decided that making a video like that sends a much bigger message than “here’s my makeup routine!”. I want everyone to know that you don’t need makeup to be beautiful, or to feel needed.

Megan - Emily! Oh I LOVE this so much. You are so beautiful and I love this project SO much. You are fabulous.

Kiley G - Um, I love this SO much. Thanks for the cute video and a powerful message to go along – you’re so gorgeous with and without makeup (also LOVE the lipstick.)

MargaretAnn - I. Love. This. You’re absolutely gorgeous without or without makeup and you’re amazing for making this video!

Samantha - Love this, Emily! You are gorgeous both ways. :)

Anyone want to buy me a lamp?


So excited to be making this post!! I’ve been working so hard on getting my room exactly the way I want it, and I’m so close to being finished!! I only have a few more things that I’d like to accomplish, but they can wait because they’re pretty expensive ;)

MargaretAnn - Gaahh your room is SO adorable! I’ve been wanting to redecorate my room, and I was hoping to go with cozy, more winter-y colors, with a plaid throw for my bed. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a plaid throw?! I’m in love with your painted headboard, by the way!

Mikailah Autumn - your room is absolutely darling, Emily! i loooove it! those are some of my favorite colors, and i absolutely adore the headboard. very impressive painting job right there. ;) xx

marcia - your room belongs in a magazine! i am seriously in love. #perfection

Olivia - it is adorable! it is simple with the whites and light teal. I love the headboard – what a cute idea to paint it on. super cute emily.!

Friends become our chosen family


Today I am home. Sunday evening I waved au revoir to my friends, and then began my long trip home. It’s always sad leaving my second-family, but I know that I’ll see them again! I love these girls with all my heart, and I can’t wait for the day we’re all together in Heaven, and never have to say good-bye!

and I’m so with you on getting sunburned. my skin is forever burning, tanning for a day, and then peeling completely off. smh.

MargaretAnn - Ugh. I’m feeling the pale people probs. Y’all are so adorable though!
