First of all, isn't this music just GORGEOUS?! If you aren't listening to it, go scroll up and click the rectangular music box at the top of this post! Okay, good, now... Welcome to the early winter! The sharp air's chill made my nose so runny during this photoshoot that I thought it was a watering bucket, lucky for you, the photos mask this reality!  Also, my eyes began to water as I attempted the Tyra Banks coined term, "smize."  ^_^ With the sudden chilly weather this weekend, I decided it was time to perform my tri-annual wardrobe season swap.  As I was swapping, I realized how many clothes I own and don't wear religiously.  So, I made a pile of things to give away. I suggest the same for you too!

"Minimalism. I need to move towards this,
although I'm not aiming to be a full out hermit
any time soon."

 Removing more clutter from my life will allow me to focus more on God, while saving me money, and we all know that needs to happen for life, right? :D  Anyways, as I did that I gave some headbands to a friend's little sister and also gave this iphone 4 case to Jas.  And if you have read any posts including Jas, she loves peacocks and anything India-related. :)  By the way, didn't her pics of me turn out fantastic today?  Thanks Jas! It's also thanks to my new free GIMP 2 photo editing software! Woop Woop!  Now that I'm not rowing I would like to have more fun with blogging. That being said, I can't do fun things for my readers if they aren't engaging in my blog. So, please follow me on my Beyoutiful Hope Facebook Page.  I want to get to 600 likes by summer 2014 so I can have a big youtube giveaway.  So, invited your friends to like the page! And so, you should follow my Youtube Channel for inspiration, DIY, and updates!

Stay in Wonder and Awe at Creation,


This case was compliments of Iconoemesis .  This UK based company features many designers which have cases from cute little bunnies to cafe scenes to girly and geopatterns. The case Jas chose out, featured here, actually has an elaborate design of blue and turquoise shades of peacock feathers, which makes it perfect for Jas.  I named it the "Jas peacock iphone 4 case !" hehe.  The particular case I first received has a minor flaw in the cutout, so I am actually going to exchange it for another which I don't mind because they have quick and friendly customer service.  If you have an iphone and are looking for a case, check out Iconoemesis.

Love the music. The chill in the air is actually semi-exciting to me this year, although I have to say I am not a big fan of extreme wind chill or slashing precipitation. Your hair in the photos is interesting and ethereal. The photos are mysterious and beautiful. I am reminded of Lucy Pevensie in the Narnian woods. :D
