My Dream Dressing Room


Some day when I am rich and famous ( not sure what I am going to be famous for) but I want a big house and I want a big fancy dressing room, that is just mine, I want to make it really feminine, I am big on colors but there is something about Black and White that I love here are some items I picked out from an awesome living room furniture, home decor site to show you my dressing room.


There is something about this light that I fell in love with. Check out more lighting options here


I love both of these mirrors and I couldnt pick just one.

To bring some color into the room, I would love to go with this bright cherry rug

I love this white leather couch 
I feel like this chair would be the perfect chair to sit in, those winter mornings while trying to get ready for work, I wouldnt want to move from the fur 




I would love those 3 pictures one top of the other just like they are pictures here on the wall when you come in the door. 


This is more like what I am picturing for the clothing to be hung up like 

Take out the pink chair and replace it with my fur chair


I need those shelves for all my shoes, I am the girl of many shoes 

There ya have it, now I am really dreaming.

Purpose!



For some time now I have been thinking about My Life’s purpose and how I use to think my purpose would be found if I had a boyfriend, then when I got married, then had a baby, had the perfect career and the job I wanted and was quickly climbing up the ladder of success, ya know what.. I am 34 and I am 1000% happy with my life, and it is not because I have achieved all I have set out to achieve, I have been in my dream job for 6 months now ( TIME FLIES), I have an amazing husband, a gorgeous daughter, my own home etc, but none of that brings my purpose.
My life’s purpose is found in Jesus, I want to be in his perfect will, so my will do not get in his way… I have been in and out of jobs for some time all the while waiting for the one that I really wanted and finally when this job came open, it was mine, it is all about Faith and Trust him.

How to find his will for your life, here are 5 steps

1) Walk with God. For starters, if you are interested in knowing God’s plan for your life, then you must learn to walk with God. You need to develop a relationship with Him. Christianity is all about relationship rather than just religion. Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

2) Surrender your will to God’s. Many times when we say we are seeking God’s will, what we are really wanting to say to God is this: “OK, God, here’s what I’m planning to do. Now I need you to rubber stamp this, all right?” I must tell you that this is not really effective in finding His true will.
Before God will begin to reveal His will to you, you must be committed to doing whatever it is that He desires for you to do. God will likely be slow to show you His plan if He knows you will likely not do that plan anyway.
Romans 12:1-2
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

3). Seek godly input. One key component to finding God’s will is to seek the input of godly advisers in your life. If you don’t currently have 3-4 godly mentors, then I would highly recommend that you seek them out right away.
Think of it this way: you should understand that you are basically a composite of the five people you spend the most time with. So, then, it is vital that you choose those five people well. If you choose to surround yourself with godly advisers, they will be instrumental in helping you discern God’s plan for your life. But if you surround yourself with people who are far from God, your hope of finding His best for your life will be greatly diminished.
Proverbs 11:14
Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

4). Listen to God’s Spirit. I experienced a major turning point in my own prayer life when I learned simply to shut up while I was praying. That may sound odd to you, and it seemed odd to me at first.
You see, I used to do all the talking when I prayed to God, we need to let God talk to us. 
John 10:27
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
 5). Listen to your heart. In addition to listening to the Spirit, I also recommend listening to your heart. To understand my point here, consider the following passage:
Psalms 37:4-5
4 Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. (NKJV)


Let go of thinking there is only one purpose for you and embrace the idea that our purpose in life is to love life fully by putting ourselves into our life! ... To lead a purposeful life, follow your passions. When we live a passion-filled life we are living on purpose, and that is the purpose of life.

The Benefits of Dancing and Why It’s Never Too Late to Start

Today I have A guest blogger for you who is sharing the benefits of dancing~

The Benefits of Dancing and Why It’s Never Too Late to Start


There’s something enchanting about watching a dancer. The graceful movements, the strength, the
stamina, the way they seem to understand their body completely. It’s beautiful and alluring, to see a
person so confident and unafraid to move, to give themselves over to music. So you, who may or
may not have tripped over their own feet a few times, aren’t exactly the epitome of grace. Besides,
dancing is for the younger crowd, no use starting now. You should just stick to the gym anyway if you want to get fit, right? Nope, dancing is a lot more beneficial and accessible than you may think, so if you’ve been considering taking some classes, maybe the following will help you decide.


Improve your health


Let’s face it – going to the gym can be kind of boring, not to mention stressful. Especially if you’re a
beginner who has no idea what they’re doing, and doesn’t like large crowds or people staring at
them. You know that you need to keep active stay healthy, but the gym is not actually the pinnacle
of exercising, especially if you don’t like it. Dancing brings you just as many benefits because it’s a form of cardio, only a lot more fun and relaxing. It’s good for your heart, and the best thing is that
you don’t need any expensive equipment. Only your body and the love of music.

Shed those extra pounds

That’s right, you can dance your way to a sexy body without ever feeling overwhelmed or bored of
the same, repetitive motions of regular exercising. Burn some calories and slim down quickly as you
shake your hips to your favourite song and feel the energy pumping through your body.

Balance out your mind and body

The heated salsa, or quick beats of hip-hop, it doesn’t matter what you pick because dancing is a
form of escapism, a way to relax and let go of stress, to get all that anger out of your system. For the
businessman who always worries or anyone who struggles with depression and anxiety, dancing can
both soothe and energize because it gives you something to focus on, and it’s a great skill that can
be useful in many ways. It’s also known to help improve your memory because it slows the cognitive
decline of your brain.


Become graceful



You will not only have a toned, beautiful body, but you’ll start moving differently as well. No more
clumsiness, no more awkwardness. In dance classes, they’ll teach you how to land on your feet
gracefully, how to move and understand your body, and practical exercises to elongate your muscles
and keep you agile. This can fix your posture and give you a nice, big boost to confidence, especially
when you hit the dance floor.


It’s never too late


Technically, you probably understand that it’s never too late to start anything, but you might be
afraid of judgement: all those bright lights, the mirrors that stare back at you and make you painfully
aware of how clumsy you look, and a crowd of young people, wondering why are you even there.
However, there are plenty of places where you can attend beginner dance classes for adults and not
feel like you’re just wasting your time or that you’re being stared at from all sides. There are safe
places where judgement is not allowed and where you can meet plenty of people who’re just trying
to have fun and learn how to dance. It’s always good to find a community and embrace it, and have
friends who support you and keep you going.


If you ever wanted to try dancing but were too afraid – you shouldn’t be! It’s only a matter of finding
the right place and relaxing and letting the beat lead you. As a dancer, you can become a part of a
big community and reap all sorts of benefits, so don’t let age or excuses stop you from just having
fun and doing whatever the hell you want to do.
