What is My Identity?

Why is it that every time I walk to the beach I have some huge heart break down? My heart aches and it hurts. I try to cover the pain with people and search for my identity through men's eyes. Why is that my Heavenly Father, that cherishes me, finds me perfect and utterly beautiful is not enough? 

Why is it that I can not find peace? I am always looking for a way to hide, transform, or be fulfilled in some other way. I am hungry and never feel full. I am drowning but my mouth is a desert. Who am I and what is the person I have become? 

I keep searching and see what I could be apart of, the glorious kingdom of God and instead keep turning away. I don't want to be a boring Christian woman! I am an image bearer if God and I can't stand the reflection I see. This isn't because of low self esteem I know I am beautiful, but I don't feel good enough. Through God's grace he is perfect in my imperfection. The men I give myself too are not worthy of me, they are wieners, do not value me, and value God even less, but then who is? 

God's grace is something I can't understand. No matter how many books I read and how much theological knowledge I have I still can't comprehend it. Thank you God for your death to save me. I don't deserve it! I don't deserve your love, patience, attention, and grace. Thank you for loving someone that was destined to nothingness. 

I don't know where God is leading me but it is better then where I have been. 

"Here is the beauty of having an identity wrapped up in a creator God who exists outside of creation: our identity is 'life proof.' No matter what circumstances, roles, or responsibilities are added or subtracted to our lives, they do not add or subtract fro our identity." Disciple by Bill Clem

Thanksgiving - How It Makes Me Full

This Thanksgiving turned out different then I had anticipated. I don't normally spend Thanksgiving with my family even though that is extremely abnormal for most families. The reason I don't spend Thanksgiving with my family is because I don't feel safe around them. Every holiday has been one full of tears and heart ache. 

My friends have been so generous and extending hospitality to me to spend time with their families during the holidays. I had one invite and I was really excited to spend the holiday with, but they ended up "disinviting" me. At the last minute (Wednesday afternoon) I was able to be squeezed in to spend the day with my beautiful, and extremely talented best friend Nomi Abadi (her music is amazing), her mom and brother, at her boyfriends families house in Menefee. I am not going to lie, it was a beautiful and extremely long drive. 

I am so grateful that i was able to enjoy the day with amazing and caring people. You know when you are best friends with someone when you are both wearing black and white bracelets.

We played board games. I am not a huge fan, but I love Apples To Apples. The cards I won were "animated and rich"

We had a completely vegan thanksgiving too! I can't remember the last time that I had stuffing and gravy!!! There was the most amazing corn casserole, brussels sprouts, tofurkey, mashed potatoes, string beans, dinner rolls, gravy, and cranberry sauce. Everything was so delicious.

The best part about spending Thanksgiving with other peoples families is seeing what their traditions are. Mine was sweet potatoes with marshmallows. I am glad that one is over haha. Comment below with what some of your favorite traditions are.

Surgery Time

I have to be the worst blogger ever. I always have it on my to do list to blog and I never do. This time i had a good excuse though… I had surgery and had breast augmentation. I know that I will get a ton of flack regarding why I would alter my body and what God thinks of it. I know that I was sinning by coveting something I wasn't blessed by God with. Thank God for God's redemption. 

I wouldn't change what I have done, since there would be no point in having regret. I believe that the reasons and motives behind making a decision is a big deal and something that needs to be looked at deeply. I can't speak for other people and their opinions of my decision. I know that for myself, I waited until I was 27 to do it and have wanted to get a boob job since I was 18. 

I never did it so that guys would look at me differently or for self esteem reasons. I wanted to do it so that I would be more proportionate. That's it. Now that I have had the surgery a little over three weeks ago I can say that emotionally I do not feel any different. I don't feel like I look that much different. Looking back right now if I would do it again I would say yes. The recovery process has been annoying and had to literally be cared for by other people for 24/7. As you can see from the first couple days I lived in the same clothes since they were easy to take on and off.

Unicorn Hair

So its no shock I love color and I love my purple hair, but one day I was a unicorn!!! I had my hair done by my dear and lovely friend Tanya and we got to have fun and make my hair all sort of fun unicorn colors. 

This was pretty easy for us since my hair was already purple with Paul Mitchell Ink Works, so when we lightened my roots it made this really awesome unicorn style. 

Comment below  if you would like me to do a tutorial on how to achieve this look if you do not already have purple hair. 

Experiment with your hair!!!

Im Back on YouTube!

It has been quite some time since i posted on YouTube, well a year to be exact haha. I have a ton of respect for YouTube gurus, it is an investment of time and talent. 

Im not saying that this is the best video ever, but I promise I will get better at editing!!!

Come watch and see the fun stuff I bought from It's a Wrap in LA. 

This is where I bought my favorite red jacket from the set of Shake it Up. I thought it would be awesome to find a picture from the show of CeCe, one of the main characters wearing it, but I didn't find any!!!

One of my other favorite things i bought was a flash tattoo poster from Dan Smith's Captured tattoo. Dan Smith was on LA Ink and just opened a shop in Tustin!!!

Watch the video to see what other fun surprises I have!!!
