The Latest on the

Blog

As I was driving yesterday, I had the impression come to my mind: “Rebuild.” It was clear! Just a word. But what did it mean? I have rebuilt before. Businesses, relationships, testimony, lots of other things. Then I had memories flood in of being pregnant for many years, being so sick that I would nearly be crawling into the hospital for my IVs a few times a week, feeling so weak and sick through every pregnancy, but trying not to show it. My back teeth falling out from constant puking. And then nursing, sleep deprivation, and then caring for a lot of tiny babies. (Which is my favorite thing and such an incredible blessing.😭😍) Five kids in five years. It was a joy, but it was also hard! It felt like there were millions of diapers to be changed every day, sometimes every hour. I was and am SO grateful for every second of it! But I believe good and hard can coexist. Rebuild. Be gentle. There was a season where you were depleted. Rebuild. It won’t happen overnight. Rebuild. Eat clean, find the things your body is deficient in. Rebuild. Nourish yourself. Look at your situation from the outside in, instead of comparing your current self to your past self. You may be or look different in some ways, but you are much much better and wiser in other and more important ways. It took time to get where you are, it will take time to get to where you want to be. Rebuild. “Be still and know that I am God.”
These thoughts came after praying to know how to help my body. My POTS has been acting up, and I tested positive for an autoimmune but won’t know which until I can get into a rheumatologist. After feeling like I’ve been fighting with my body or discouraged that I my body didn’t “bounce back” after a dark time during a bad phase of postpartum depression and facing past traumas, I had a moment of clarity where I felt calm and gentle. Pray in specifics to Heavenly Father. He knows you, and can help you know what YOU personally need in any certain moment. I know that was a lot of personal things, but hoping it can help someone! Love you, friends! Happy Wednesday.💕 #thedaintypear#worshipwithTDP 📷: @valoryjean

Self proclaimed bargain shopper here! I’m was excited to splurge a little and try on the make- up from Charlotte Tilbury. I went all in! I bought as much as I could wedge between my body and my toddler sized hands. I must admit, I already tried a few of her products in my last make-up video, and couldn’t wait to try more of her line. Imagine my excitement when I learned they are manufactured in Italy! I can almost hear my Italian ancestors cheering me on as I open each product. Not, really… but I’d like to think so. First, the flawless filter foundation went on with a lovely dewy glow. At first it seemed a bit shiny, but I’m attributing that to the moisturizer I generously applied moments before. Once I blended it in, I was loving how my skin looked. Usually I would use a little concealer, but didn’t find her concealer in my hasty shopping spree, until after shooting this video. I actually found one and love it. Next up was the bronzer! Again, we Italians are all about the bronzer. Pasta, gelato, and bronzer…in that order. I noticed the bronzer blended in beautifully with the flawless filter foundation. Definitely a good combo for full face coverage. The eye brow pencil worked great for filling in my eyebrows, but didn’t necessarily lift or hold them in the direction they were brushed. The “queen of glow” palate is next. It has four separate colors for 4 separate functions. Prime, enhance, smoke, and pop! I’ll take all four please! This palate comes with instructions which is new and fun for me. I just followed the instructions and went in order with each color, which was refreshing because I’ve never been super confident in my eyeshadow application prowess. I absolutely loved the gold color, which was step number 2, “enhance.” I have multiple pallets that I love love, and I’m adding this little quad of colors to my “oh yeah” list. One of my favorite steps in make-up is the lips. Bring on all the colors of the rainbow. I have previously used (and loved) my pillow talk color, but decided to go with the color “iconic nude.” The lip cheat lip liner is just great. I went a little overboard, but sometimes you just gotta go for it with the liner to get the lips don’t lie look. Speaking of going for it, I decided to try the “walk of no shame” eye shadow as a blush! I know I know, take my brushes away already. I’m pleasantly pleased with the no shame color on my cheeks. It totally worked! I have zero shame! Now, can I apply this same sentiment to my pantry shelf full of Nutella? Ok, thanks. Lastly, and sadly I wasn’t in love with the mascara. The wand was the kind that doesn’t agree with my lashes. We almost had a home run. Luckily what the mascara lacked, the rest of the products definitely made up for it. To re cap, yes to everything and if you are going to go all in, make sure to get a few lipstick colors to round things out. So Bravo Charlotte, complimenti per il lavoro svolto! (See Italian to English Translation. Hahaha.) I love your line and your clever names for the colors.
