Where Mickey started and where he ended up is massive to me, I can’t really picture a bigger turn, coming out of his shell, from who he is and the starting point of this incredibly scared and angry person to who he is now. That journey towards freedom has been really wonderful and a privilege to play.“ - Noel Fisher

I remember when you scolded me in Junior High. You said the same thing. It was right after we got crushed in a practice match before the tournament. I figured we were destined for failure in the real tournament. “Even if we’re not confident that we’ll win, even if other tell us we don’t stand a chance, we must never tell ourselves that”. End quote. 

So:

Keith being touched starved and constantly craving affection, but anyone touching him too much makes him jump and recoil. Lance catches onto it at some point and starts to really gently get Keith used to his contact. Touching his shoulder, letting their feet touch a little on the coffee table, sliding his hand under Keith’s, holding his hand, etc. Sooner or later, Lance is able to put his arm around Keith and Keith will lean into him willingly and then one day, after a really rough battle, Keith just plows his way to Lance afterwards and goes face first into his chest. Everyone is shocked and Lance is internally like, “dear God yes my hard work paid off,” and trying not to cry.

Save Money on Makeup

If anyone knows how much of a dent makeup can put in your wallet… it’s me. As a lover of all things beauty and makeup it’s what I spent most of my money on so I’ve learned a few ways to indulge my makeup obsession and save some money along the way!

Drugstore Reward Programs. Drugstores like Walgreens, CVS, Ulta, etc often have rewards programs where the more money you spend the more you get in cash back or reward points. This way every time you’re buying makeup you’re saving up points and rewards to apply to future makeup purchases. CVS actually has a reward program strictly for beauty and makeup called BeautyClub where you can check weekly sales and earn $5 ExtraBucks on every $50 spent to spend at CVS!

Hautelook. Hautelook is a Nordstrom owned company that has flash online sales for a few days on anything from fashion, home to beauty. They often have skin care, makeup and beauty tools from large or luxury brands. They’ve had a bunch of Korean beauty brand flash sales recently, too! Check out the site here.

Glambot. A site i’ve talked about before and have made quite a few orders from! They sell and buy gently used high end brands so you can buy or ship them and sell your makeup on Glambot. This site is great if you loved limited edition packaging or rarely go through a whole blush. They have a large MAC selection and new products if you don’t like the concept of buying used makeup! Check out the site here.

All Cosmetics Wholesale. This site basically sells high end products that are faulty with the wrong lid or name something that makes them unable to sell in store. They also have some products that are perfectly fine! I find this site to be hit or miss because the pictures are slightly misleading but the discount is good! Check out the site here.

Cosmetic Company Outlet/Store. Cosmetic Company outlets are usually in outlet malls and sell all Estee Lauder Companies like Estee Lauder, MAC, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, etc. Check out the list of stores here to see if there are any nearby your area. 

Other tips to save money when buying makeup

  • Ebates. Ebates will give you anywhere around 3 to 50% cash back off your order when shopping online, So you find the store you want to shop at on Ebates, click the link to the store, and online shop as normal. Each store has a different cash back rate so you can get around 6 - 10% cash back on orders at Sephora or Ulta and over time this really adds up! Check out ebates here.
  • Waiting for Friends & Family sales. High end brands and Sephora have a F&F sale once a year usually around 20% off which are good times to buy! 
  • Checking the sale section. Many brand sites have a sale section for the limited edition, soon to be discontinued items. Big stores like Sephora and Nordstrom will typically just pull the stock but going on the actual brand sites have a wider selection. Brands like Tarte, Too Faced, Urban Decay, and Sephora all have sale sections. 
  • Buying and selling used/pre loved. Buying used comes in handy when you most likely won’t finish a whole blush or eyeshadow so used you can get it for a little cheaper and won’t worry about having too much left. You can buy preloved makeup on Ebay or shopping apps like Poshmark and Depop which I have used to sell my used makeup for discounted. You could also sell your gently used makeup on selling apps so you’ll have more money to buy products that you’ll use more!

Happy shopping makeup lovers! Xo

“So I tried to gently ease us all into it, but enough so that if by like the last quarter of the season, you went back and watched then maybe you would start to pick out some sneaky little tidbits you hadn’t caught onto before.” -Annie on playing Dean!Perry

The highlight of that experience was my mom calling to pry like, “So, what do you think of what Howard was saying? Sounds pretty interesting to me!” Like, that Howard Stern would somehow end up as part of my mom’s gentle harangue of ‘when are you going to get your life together.’

Be Thou My Vision - original print from The Worship Project.

This is one of my all-time favorite hymns. Written by Irish Christian poet Saint Dallan in the 6th century, it was later translated to English in 1912 to the tune that we know commonly today.

The lyrics have deeply impacted me over the years, and spurred me forward in my walk with Christ. A new imagining of this timeless hymn was recently released by Audrey Assad for her “Inheritance” record - which is flawless if you’re looking for a new worship album.

I want to leave you with the full lyrics of this beautiful hymn. My hope is that you’ll let these lyrics wash over you afresh - even if you can recite them in your sleep.

Holy Spirit, would you come and lead us, draw us back to you. Gently take us by the hand, wooing and calling us further and deeper into Your glorious presence. Be our vision; our complete 360-blueprint. We don’t want to take a single step without you.

“Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that thou art; Thou my best thought, by day or by night, Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my Wisdom, and thou my true Word; I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord; Thou my great Father, and I thy true son, Thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise; Thou mine inheritance, now and always; Thou and thou only, first in my heart, High King of heaven, my treasure thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won, May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.”

The Visual Hymnal #2
