Fashion Friday || Paige

Hello readers of Eden's Evaluations! :) 

My name is Paige, and I am pleased to be today's Fashion Friday guest. Putting together outfits is one of my favorite things to do. I believe that modesty, style, and frugality (with a good investment now and then) are all things to consider when buying clothes and putting together an outfit. You can see more of my looks on my blog Sunday Best and all the Rest.
 This particular look was inspired by some photos my mom found on Pinterest regarding how to style a white skirt. You see, my handkerchief hemline skirt has not exactly been getting much use! Now I have some inspiration. Here, I paired the skirt with a new-to-me black and white striped tee. Because I tucked in the shirt, a shiny black belt helped cover the skirt's waist. The belt also made a dividing line between the skirt and top, disguising the different shades of the top and skirt. A denim jacket makes a cute fashion statement with the other pieces. Finally, red cork-heeled wedges pair well with the maxi skirt and add a fun pop of color.


Outfit Details: T-shirt ~ Thrift store; Skirt ~ Thrift or Consignment Store; Belt ~Thrift Store; Jacket ~ Consignment Store; Shoes ~ Target

   And there you have it! Eden, thanks again for asking me to post for you. :) Have a lovely May everyone!

Red Apple Lipstick || Review

Hey Everyone! 

You've probably wondered what has happened to my blog... no new posts, no new movies.... the best excuse I can give is that I've been busy. Like, really busy! ;) 

Today, I have a quick sample review for you all.... 

About (from Facebook): "Gluten & Paraben Free, Cruelty Free + Vegan! Unique, Mineral based, one of a kind formula!"

Red Apple Lipstick does not only carry lipstick, they also carry eyeshadow, eyeliner, lip gloss, lip balm, and most recently, mascara.   For this review, they sweetly sent me some samples to try out and right a quick review on. :)

 My samples arrived wrapped in this adorable bag.
 Upon opening it, I found 4 different lip colors as well as a sample of Rallye Balm.
The names of each color. 

My Thoughts - I've gotta say that I am really impressed with this lipstick... Not only does it stay on your lips all day, but it leaves them feeling hydrated, soft, and moisturized.

The health benefits of this lipstick is also amazing... it's not filled with all the harmful chemicals that are in normal lipstick.  Instead, it's gluten free and enriched Vitamin E and more.

The colors of this lipstick are also awesome... they are very vibrant and I know this really doesn't matter, but their names are perfect. ;) Just a side note. ;)

Overall, I loved everything about these lipsticks... the color, the health benefits, the feeling, everything.  Please check out the Red Apple Lipstick website, like them on Facebook, and check out their other amazing products! :)

Summary: 
Rating: 5 Stars
Customer Service: Totally amazing!
 Recommend to a Friend? Yes.

That's it for today, please check back for all the awesome giveaways and movies I have coming up! Yes, I promise, there is a movie in the making!:) :) :) :):)

Fashion Friday || Elanee S.

Hello Everyone,

Happy Spring to you all:) I think next to summer this is my favorite time of the year. I just love all the flowers, and new life everywhere. It reminds me of the passage in Revelations 21:4-5 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” He truly is worth trusting and believing. His words are faithful, and true, and what He says, He will do! Oh, what a blessed Christ we have been invited to know.

Eden asked me to share an outfit with you all today, and I had a hard time choosing which one to share, so she said I could share two. So, you get to see me in pink, and blue today:)But before I begin the outfits, I just want to give special thanks to my dear friend and photographer Jennifer Selberg from Capturing Creation Photography. (http://www.capturingcreationbyjenniferselberg.com) Without her professional skills these pictures would not be possible.

 Ok, now on to the outfits:) This first outfit is one of my favorite outfits for church and dressy occasions. It’s so comfortable I could sleep in it, but I still feel dressy at the same time. I had never explored knit dresses before purchasing this one, but I think I really like them now. Especially in a maxi length style. It really makes you feel elegant.
The outfit consists of

Blue Maxi length Dress- Goodwill for like- $8
Pink Bolero- New to You Second hand store- $7
Cream Lace Cami- Fred Meyers- $8
Pink pearl necklace- Gift from my Mother
Pearl Earings- Craft sale- $2
And my purity ring is visible in some of the photos- Gift from my Dad:)
So, a funny story about these photos;) We took these photos at about 6 pm on a cool evening in February. The sun was almost setting, and it was getting chilly. After about a 1/2 hour of photos, I began to get really cold. Not only that, the bugs started coming out, making it difficult to keep focused on the camera. At one point a bug flew right in front of my face just as the photo was snapped. It was hilarious. Oh, and if you look close, in the above photo, you’ll see goosebumps on my arm;)  But despite all the challenges, it was a fun time that made for great memories:)
And now for my baby blue outfit;) I really like this outfit for casual and dressy occasions. I have found the skirt to be the most versatile piece of clothing I own, as it goes with almost anything. You should really try to find a multi- colored skirt for your wardrobe, if you don’t have one yet. You’ll be amazed at the possibilities it opens up.
Outfit details:

Skirt- Goodwill- $7
Casual Lace Sweater- Macys- $15
Blue Long sleeve t- shirt- Goodwill- $7
Necklace- Birthday gift from Eden;)
Earrings- Gift from my Mother
And this time my braces match the outfit:) Yes! I don’t know why I focus on things like that, but it does make a difference when the details all combine well, don’t you think? Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed these outfits, and got some inspiration from them:)

I always enjoy viewing the outfits other people create, and share on this blog. It’s such a beautiful way to express the uniqueness God has given us. If you liked this post today, Leave a comment and let me know what’s your favorite piece of clothing in your current wardrobe? Mine is definitely the skirt pictured above:)

Thanks again SO much for viewing this, and special thanks to you Eden, for asking me to do this:)  Please visit my blog at:

Born Pretty Store || Review

Hey People!
Recently, I did an introductory post on an awesome company called Born Pretty Store.
Today, I'm doing a review on two products from Born Pretty Store.


About (from Facebook): "BornPrettyStore.com is a global online retail website that delivers products directly to consumers around the world. BornPrettyStore offer consumers for a wide selection of nail art products at attractive prices through www.bornprettystore.com. BornPrettyStore's products in the core categories of Nail Art, Makeup, Jewelry and Watches."

Today, I have the utmost pleasure of reviewing a hair and jewelry piece from Born Pretty! They sent me this beautiful wrap bracelet and stunning headband. (Spoiler alert! This headband will be featured in a lot of upcoming videos!)

My Thoughts: I'll start with my thoughts on the bracelet... wow, I absolutely LOVE it!
 I was slightly skeptical since the price was almost too good (only $2.99!), but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it has excellent quality!  

The colors, pink, brown, and cream, are perfect, making it easy to match with tons of different outfits.  This bracelet also adds a fun and personal touch to your outfits. I also really liked the adjustable and durable clasp.
I love my bracelet SO MUCH!
Second is the headband which is drop dead gorgeous! (Click HERE to see my hair tutorial featuring this lovely headband!) 


I love the detail and design of this headband, it's delicate, feminine, and very elegant.  I really liked the fact that it is full circle, but I wish the elastic was adjustable.  Other then that, this headband is amazing.  It's perfect for a formal evening event or a casual hair-do to add a glamorous touch. 


Overall, I'm really happy with Born Pretty Store and I highly recommend them! Please visit the website, check out their amazing products, and if you order, don't forget to use my coupon code to get 10% off! 
A coupon code just for you! <3

Fashion Friday || Julia R.

 Hello everyone! I am very happy to be posting here again for Eden! Here is what I wore to the museum with my family for my youngest brother's birthday. I have been to this wonderful museum..so I knew I wanted to dress comfortable- yet cute. I actually had picked out a totally different outfit the day before we went...but being a girl, I changed right before we left. Haha!

 My outfit:
Grey shirt - Goodwill
Purple cardagin - borrowed from my sister
Jean skirt - Goodwill (borrowed)
Purse - Old Navy 
My purse is actually the first thing I've bought new in a loong time! I have been very happy with it though. I am able to hold a book in there even..which is very important to me. ;)
I would like to encourage everyone today that dressing modestly is easy. It may make you look like a freak or something..but I'd rather be a Jesus Freak than anything else in the world! I am blessed by being homeschooled..so I have no idea what it must be like to go to public school, but whatever you do, wherever you go, remember this - Jesus is right there with you. 

Dress modestly for Him! 

 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Philippians 4:8
