I CAN SEE YOUR HEART IN EVERYTHING YOU'VE MADE

Thursday, 5 April 2018



















Shoutout to Jason Jacobs for the photo!


There's this lookout not too far from church where my friends I have found ourselves spending more time than not in the last few weeks. It's one of those places that's got a bit of a reputation for being the spot people go to in order to satisfy worldly desires. A place the devil took from being one of the most stunning views open for people to sit and dwell in the stunning nature of the country the creator blessed us with, to a place people go to hide away from the reality of their worlds without getting caught.

We found ourselves sneaking into the reserve one night with the intention of playing a round of sardines. That night, we found that in this place that had been overtaken by worldly people, we couldn't escape the overwhelming presence of God that fell over the otherwise empty fields. He was walking alongside us through the trees and along the gravel paths to the perfect spot where he shared with us his original plan for the patch of land overlooking our city.

As we sat and looked over the seemly endless city lights that sparkled through the trees, we sat and worshiped. We saw God's heart in every tree, every patch of grass and every place the wind rustled the leaves. Through our prayers and our worship, we shifted the atmosphere of the reserve. I went from one people left to hideaway to a place where as soon as you set foot on the grass it's impossible not to be hit with the sense of his presence. We've been coming back here for our worship and prayer sessions together ever since.

I just think that it's so cool how a place that the devil intended for harm, God intended for good.

I encourage you to go out and find your own spot. Your own place to spend time with God. Your own place you can anoint with God's presence. Find your own place - not only will it deepen your relationship with the creator but it might also change someone else's world.


XO, Danielle

THE NEW YEAR WAS MY EXCUSE TO TRY NEW MAKEUP

Thursday, 15 February 2018


I LOVE Mac Cosmetics but have never had the guts to properly go out and buy more than just a highlighter or lipstick. This month I decided that 2018 would be the year that I expanded my horizons and tried something I'd always wanted to but never have. Now that I've tried the greatness that is Mac makeup - I'm NEVER going back! I'm officially in LOVE.

Here are my reviews on the items that I've bought, tried and now love.

01. PRO LONGWEAR SPF 10 FOUNDATION


Rating: 5/5

Cost: $35.00
Thoughts: This foundation is a much better fit with my skin tone than the revlon foundation that I was previously using. My previous foundation was also quite heavy. The Mac Pro Longwear Foundation is very lightweight on my skin and lasts for majority of the day. I forget I have any makeup on my face at all while wearing this and it looks SUPER natural. I would 10/10 recommend.

You can get one of these for yourself HERE.

02. STUDIO FIX POWDER PLUS FOUNDATION


Rating: 4/5

Cost: $29.00
Thoughts: My thoughts on this setting powder is pretty much the same as my foundation I bought above. This is a lot more light weight than the setting powder I was using previously. It lasts the whole day, looks SUPER natural and I don't really feel like I'm wearing a bunch of makeup.

03. SHEERTONE SHIMER BLUSH


Rating: 4/5

Cost: $28.00
Thoughts: I love this blush. It's an awesome colour that goes well with almost all of my makeup and is super easy to apply. I can't wait to try out more colours for a range of different looks outside of my daily makeup look.

04. MINERALIZE SKINFINISH HIGHLIGHTER


Rating: 5/5

Cost: $34.00
Thoughts: I've been using Mac highlighter for a while now and it's one of my favourite makeup items. I've previously been using the colour Soft & Gentle. This colour that I've just bought is called Warm Rose and I can not wait to try it once I've finished my current one.

MATAKANA MARKETS

Monday, 22 January 2018


Matakana Coast is one of my ALL TIME favourite places. It's one of those towns that always makes me feel like I'm in a story book and I was so happy that I got to spend one of the first days of the year indulging in the food, laughter, bright colour and laughs of their Saturday markets followed by a quick trip to good old Omaha. 



I've been dreaming of days like this since I started work again. As much as I'm loving being back at my dream job and having a normal routine again, days like this have been a part of those daydreams I have while I eat my lunch at my desk. Summer adventures with your friends definitely have a way of making everything else seem a bit mundane. It's a good thing my job keeps me on my toes!

Heres to another week of work followed by another roadie with my best friends.


XO, Danielle
