Is it My Story, or Yours?

Hey Friends! 

Today I'm going to write about something that's been on my mind a lot lately- Comparison.  It's human nature to compare ourselves to others. I mean take a look at how many people we're surrounded by on a regular basis. How can we not start to feel as if others are better at things than we are? Well the truth is, is that someone probably is better at certain things than you are, but you have to remember this; their story isn't yours
There are billions of people in the world, but every single 1 has a different purpose, a different story to live out. That's almost surreal for me to think about. Out of every other person out there in the world you are the only you. Imagine if everyone had the same story. All the excitement would be taken out of life and it would be dull as crap. Everyone was made with their own unique beauty so there is no need to compare ourselves to others.  

Think about this next you start comparing yourself to other.

Long Time No Talk... An Update

Hey Friends!

Wow, its been a long time since I've done a post; sorry! Liv and I decided to take a break and wait to start posting again in the summer. We were both super busy with school and other things such as birthdays, church, jobs ( I got a part-time job a couple weeks ago!), and hanging out with friends that we didn't want to put up a post just to put one up. Now since school is out we have time to make good quality posts!

I'm not sure when Liv is going to start posting again, but I'm going to start posting every Tuesday again so make sure you follow us!

 P.S.- I'm also in the works of making my own blog! Please come check it out and follow me for more! I will be posting 3 times a week on there as well. Hidden with Beauty

I just wanted to write this to kind of update you all and explain why there has been a lack of posts recently! Please leave comments down below of some posts that you would want to see!

Birthday Weekend / Update

Hey ya'll! I feel as though I haven't talked you all in so long. Sorry I haven't posted yet, but with the end of the school year coming to a close ( 37 more days! ) life has just gotten a whole lot busier. Today I thought I would just share with you guys all thats been going on and some more excited things coming up!

  • First of all last Sunday was my birthday! I finally turned 16! For my birthday Liv and I headed down to Raleigh to do some serious shopping. One of my favorite stores we went into was Lush, a bath and body type store ( hint- there will be some of those products in my May favorites post!) We finished the night off by going to The Cheesecake Factory and it was sooo delicious. I would highly recommend the fried mac & cheese balls, chicken teriyaki, Reese's peanut butter cheesecake, and the red velvet cake cheesecake. I haven't gotten my license yet, but I'm definitely getting it sometime this month.
  • I am so excited for Pretty Little Liars season 6 to start! The promo video looks super creepy. You should go watch it!
  • Later this month: Well this coming Sunday is Mother's Day so get prepared! Then May 15th is my AP exam which I am praying I pass, and then May 16th is our prom! (Liv and I are on prom committee so we get to go help!)

Let me know down in the comments below what you have going on this month!

Q&A #1

Hey friends! A couple of posts ago I asked you all to leave me questions so I could do an upcoming Q&A and today I'm going to answer all of your questions. I wanted to do this so you guys could get to know me better! 

  • What/Who is your inspiration? My inspiration to live everyday is Jesus Christ. Knowing someone loves you and is never leaving is the most comforting thought ever. 

  • How do you deal with negativity? Over the past year I have strived to be a more positive person, because when situations get tough my instinct is to think of the glass as half empty. A saying that really helped me stop thinking so many negative thoughts was "Shut the gate."
  • What is your favorite quote?
  • Which movie can you watch again and again? Okay so I have two; Footloose ( the newer version ) and High School Musical ( a childhood favorite )!
  • Do you have any signature item? ( Like perfume or any accessories)  My glasses, haha. But, seriously those and my white high top converse. I love wearing them with dresses, casual but cute. 
  • Do you hate anything about fashion? Honestly no, but I do feel as though you have to have the right personality and body type to pull off certain looks.
  • Do you have any phobias? I really hate speaking in front of crowds & you know the usual a serial killer is going to come murder me in my sleep. ( I watch to much of Pretty Little Liars!)

I hope you guys enjoyed this and got to know a little bit more about me! Leave me more questions down in the comment so I can do another one!

Make sure you follow the blog and all of our social media also!

Have a great day!

You are special

Hi guys! I miss you all! Its been a few weeks since I've done a post, so I wanted to give some encouragement to everyone.

I love this verse, Psalm 147:4, because it's God showing us that he loves and cherishes each of his creations. And guess what? We are his creation! So often we listen to society tell us who we are. But God is saying, "I know you! I cherish you, and I love you. You are special. You were made in my image, and therefore you are wonderful." Rest assured in those words! And don't let anyone other than Jesus determine your self-worth. 

If you enjoyed this verse, I reccomend reading Psalm 139

Thanks for reading! Have a blessed day. 

Xoxo, Liv

Skincare Routine for Acne Prone Skin

Hey friends! So today I am finally sharing with you all my skincare routine! This is mainly targeted with those who have acne prone skin like me, but without the benzyl peroxide it would work good with any skin type because I don't like using products that are specifically targeted for acne. My skin doesn't feel as clean and that i'm putting a lot of chemicals on my face.

  • Purity Face Wash by Philosophy :  I've talked about this before, but this is my ultimate favorite face wash ever. It's just an ordinary face wash, but it really feels as if it's cleaning my face. It's hard to explain. I would recommend everyone trying this, especially since it's not even target specifically towards acne prone skin. 

  • St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub: I use this to exfoliate about once a week to get rid of all the dead skin cells on my face. After using this it makes my skin feel clean and fresh. 

  • Vitamin E Hydrating Toner by The Body shop: Guys, this is my Holy Grail skincare product. I think this toner is the reason my skin has cleared up so much ( mostly just scars now). It feels as if your putting water on your face, but then you look at the cotton ball and am like "Wow all that dirt was really still on my face!" 

  • Ponds Nourishing Moisturizing Cream: Honestly, all I have to say about this product is that it does a great job at moisturizing. I've been using this for the past six months and absolutely love it!

  • Neutrogena on the Spot Acne Treatment: This is the only skincare product that I use specifically for my acne. It has benzyl peroxide in it, which helps dry out zits. Benzyl peroxide works better than salicylic acid for me personally. 

Let me know if you use any of these skincare products and how you like them! Also, if you have any blog post request/ ideas let us know!

Make sure to follow us and check beck on Thursday for Liv's post!
