Sundays Are For Snoozing

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. Exodus 20:8-10

I've learned over the past few weeks as season starts to kick its way into high gear, that I am very much an introvert. Being around people in 7 shifts in 5 days during the week starts to get very overwhelming for me. I started getting cranky and sleepy and found myself just being annoyed by every human contact in general. Learning that, yes I love people. I love being around people and spending time with others, but especially during these busy months it's important to learn that we all need to pause and give a break to ourselves. Everyone needs a moment to collect themselves. To rest. To recover from the very long week. 

We all get so caught up in having busy lives or multiple jobs that we forget that yes life can be great in the business of life, but in order to be our best selves it's important to relax. So when your busy schedule is pulling you all which ways these holiday's, remember to set aside one day in your week to just relax. To spend some alone time with yourself and God. To read, write, sleep, binge watch those episodes you've been missing, and to do those unwinding things your body and mind needs. 

It is SO needed that the Bible encourages rest so many times!

Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath." Mark 2:27

I recently bought three different Christian books to start reading. One of them being The Story. Which is The Bible paraphrased into 31 chapters. It's to be read like a novel. I have never heard of something like this. I am only on Chapter 2, but what a good way to rest. Reading the stories of God and His people. Next time Sunday (or the end of your work week) rolls around turn on some worship music, throw your hands in the air, and rest in His arms. Read the comforting words of God. Share these special moments with your loved ones or simply be  alone in His presence. It is so important to gather the rest you need to start up the busy week once again. 

Enjoy the Christmas season. Give a lot, but don't forget to give to yourself, too! <3 

 

Falling Into Winter - My Simple Fashion Essentials

I'm not much of a "fashionista". Do people even say that anymore? Or ever?! Besides the point. Friday, was Black Friday! The beautiful and hectic Black Friday event. Every year after Thanksgiving when the sunsets and the moon starts to howl (too dramatic?) I head over to the shoppes to check out the best deals. I only had a few things on my list this year.

Basic tops and a comfy sweater! I found just that and I wanted to share with you what I found. Not only to show the deals that are still going on, but because I think everyone should own these lovely staple pieces in their closet!  

GAP Sweater - $10

I almost bought every color they had when I saw this deal, but I contained myself. Ten dollars for a super soft and comfy sweater for the chilly holiday's. Sold! Gap is such a good store for so many adorable, (manly too), and affordable, but quality pieces. 

Target Basic T Shirt's - $4-$6

Target released multiple new clothing brands recently and they were on sale this past weekend for practically nothing. I HIGHLY recommend this brand. Super soft, high quality, and affordable even when not on sale! One more reason to love Target.

Long Pink Vest - $

This vest was a gift from Greece from my boyfriend and his mom! Such amazing material and I would have never thought to bought this for myself. Adorable and very sleek. I can't wait to pair one of these white shirts with this vest. This is a statement piece I am just coming across and I love it. Anywhere from Polyvore, HauteLook, Walmart, Kholes, etc. They're everywhere and perfect for laying this upcoming winter season. 

I am currently updating and "maturing" my wardrobe and can't wait to get new pieces to add in! I hope all of you are having a wonderful end of November and are looking forward to the Christmas season!
