products i’ve used up or could use no more! | october empties 2014 | #thebeautybalance

I’ve been diving right into this 31 Day Writing Challenge, where each blogger chooses a topic to write about for 31(ish) days. Because it’s right where God has me, I’ve chosen to share on Blending Beauty with Balance.
(#thebeautybalance, if you want to follow along…or better yet, join the conversation using the hashtag!)

It’ll be a fun and encouraging 31(ish) days where I’ll be sharing tips and tricks while digging deeper, finding purpose, and blending beauty with balance — all with a heart of intention. {all 31(ish) Days will be linked here}


Here’s the thing.

31 days of continual blogging?
It’s tough.

And while I know I can do tough things, I also know it’s better to do tough things with balance.

Hence the reason why I needed to take these last few days off from blogging.
I just needed to be.

And oh my word, was it ever lovely.

But, I also know that if I continue to just “be” I’ll quickly get lazy and complacent, and that also is not a balanced or beautiful way to live.

You be.
And then you be right back to it.

{My wise words for the day…make sure you write that down.}

And so I’m back and ready to share todays video where it’s time to show off my trash (or “empties” as the YouTube world calls it), and let you know if all this stuff really is worth our money orrrr ya, maybe not so much…

These are some of my favorite videos to watch (and also to do) on YouTube, because once someone has finished something entirely, they really do know whether or not they’d spend the money to get it again.

And that’s where I’m here to help you!!!

So here’s what we used up this month, and if I really think it’s worth you making a trip to get it yourself!!

While I LOVE beauty, health, and all things related, more than anything my heart and soul belongs to Jesus! This quote expresses exactly what I hope shines more than anything:

“Like Paul and every other believer, my life is no longer my own. The focus must not be on me, but on Christ. When someone hears from me publicly, I want it all to point to Him.”

{quote from John MacArthur}
