Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah. I am a Christian girl who wants to strive to be more like Jesus! I believe the way we dress is just one of the ways we can honor God. Modesty is important because the world cannot see our hearts, but they can see that we want to glorify God with the clothes we choose to wear. I would like to thank Elisabeth Shonhaar for the opportunity to share my thoughts on what modesty means to me! The outfit I am wearing is (in my opinion) perfect for spring, and a great casual outfit! The bell-sleeved blouse is floral, which always screams spring to me! I also love wearing ankle boots in the spring because of the unpredictable spring weather, and I think ankle boots are super cute year-long ! I enjoyed getting to do this!

Aww, thank you so much Rebekah for wanting to come on my blog and be a part of it. I’m so glad we were able to do this!  If anyone else would like to do this send me a message at missbeth1897@hotmail.com and we can talk!

Happy May everyone!! I hope you had a great April. Chat with me in the comments and tell me if you have any summer plans I’d also love to hear from you guys what you think of this new series! 🙂

7 Hair Care Tips

Since last summer I’ve been wanting to grow out my hair. Long. Like really long. So I’ve been researching a lot on ways to make it grow faster as well as ways to just get it healthier in general. Here are some tips that I’ve seen, used, and have worked (at least for me).

1. DON’T WASH YOUR HAIR EVERYDAY     

This might sound gross but it really does work. Washing you hair everyday strip’s all the  essential oils from you hair which will leave your hair drier and more prone to breakage. If you wash your hair everyday it might take a couple of weeks to get your hair to not need to be washed everyday but overall it’s definitely worth it.

2. DON’T BRUSH YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN

Brushing your hair a lot definitely leads to more breakage so maybe just brush it once when you get up and once before you go to bed. If your hair is very fine like mine you could probably get away with just combing it.

3. STAY AWAY FROM HEAT

Heating your hair up will dry it out and damage it. Try not to blow dry your hair or use heat styling tools. I know some people put on heat protective sprays before using heat styling tools but I feel like all your doing is putting chemicals on your hair which also isn’t great….

4. USE HAIR MASKS

You can either buy these or make one from things in your house. Trust me Pinterest has tons of recipes. 😉 But yes, I have recently started using a homemade one about once a week and I really do notice a difference, my hair is getting longer and softer. 👍

Another thing I do is about an hour before I take a shower I will put coconut oil on the ends of my hair and that also really helps.

5. WASH YOUR HAIR WITH COLD WATER

This goes back to the stay away from heat, this one really does help my hair but I HATE it! Especially in the winter I’m just like “nope not happening”. I do notice that when I do do this my hair doesn’t frizz as much and it’s shinier.

6. STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR HAIR

The more you play with your hair the more you will get split ends. This one is really hard for me because I’m always twirling my hair. It’s really awful for my hair I know so I am trying to stop…. 

7. DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOUR HAIR

If you have super greasy hair or curly hair the do some research and find out what works for your hair. Generally speaking I think all the things I’ve listed will help with any hair type, but still experiment and see what works for you.                                                 

And that’s it! Obviously my hair isn’t the most amazing thing right now but all these tips are from girls who do have great hair so hopefully my hair will start getting longer and healthier. 🙂 

Thanks for reading everyone. Talk to me in the comments about what you do to care for your hair. Also tell me if you might give any of these tips a shot!

Modestly Styled Gals #1

(I’ve never wanted this blog to be about just me. It’s first and foremost about God and modesty. So I’ve asked an amazing friend of mine to guest post here! She was kind enough to say yes, so here’s a very cute outfit of her’s and her thoughts on modesty! And I know this outfit isn’t super springy or anything but believe it or not where I live it’s still pretty cold. Really as I speak it’s snowing. So if you live in a climate similar to mine this outfit is for you! )

OOTD- Comfy Outfit

This is just a super short post today. The outfit is one I would wear every day if I could! It’s just really comfortable and warm which is a most for me in the winter. 🙂

Outfit details:

Shirt (\Hoodie)- Walmart

Skirt- Thrift Store

Leggings- Walmart

Boots- Giant Tiger

So that’s pretty much it. Like I said, super short post but wanted to share it with y’all because it’s very “me”. I love the color dark green and I love denim skirts so I wear this outfit quite a bit. If you want to see how I switch it up so it doesn’t look the exact same every time I wear it, I’ll do a post about that. 

What’s your favorite kind of outfit and do you like boots? I like these but overall they aren’t really “my thing”.

Sunday Style #9

I think we’ve all been there where you pick out what you’re going to wear and then you don’t like it so you try on a million outfits until you find the right one. 😀 Well that was definitely me on Sunday morning. When that does happen I usually just wear something that makes me comfortable (that’s also appropriate for church), and I ended up absolutely loving this outfit! It’s really simply but also classy and dressy, which is probably my favorite kind of outfit.

On to the outfit!

I love how it’s just a very simple outfit that I just threw together, but the fact that I added the scarf makes it look like I tried. 🙂 I think this is the kind of outfit every. single. person has in their closet. Neutral shirt and skirt with a fun scarf. So yes, this is a super easy outfit to re-create if you wanted to. 

Outfit details:

Shirt: Walmart

Skirt: Given to me

Tights: Dollar Store (they’re actually really good quality)

Scarf: Gift

Shoes: Hand-me-up 😀 

Thanks so much for reading! Have an awesome weekend. 

 

 

 

The Liebster Award Tag

My sister tagged me in this so I have to do it… (That was a joke). Anyway, basically you have to have 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions that the person who tagged you asked. There are more rules and stuff I should be doing but…

I hate almost all facial hair on guys, (sometimes I don’t mind it, but that’s rare).

I can’t stand any socks but ankle socks.

I’m one-fourth German.

I have a serious problem with twirling my hair.

I read The Scarlet Pimpernel when I was like ten…

I depend on Spell-check.

 

Here are the eleven questions my sister came up with

Fresh Modesty!! This blog is amazing, She perfectly combines modesty and fashion, and yeah, it’s great. She recently got married and revamped her blog (she’s not super active on it but when she is it’s great) and you can still get tons of inspiration from her old blog

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

This is just a quick post (no outfit 😦 ) but I still wanted to do it.

Last night my family and I went to a Watchnight Service. It was really fun, so fun that even though I really wanted to get a picture of my outfit I forgot… Anyway there was a great service, amazing food, and after we heard testimonies from people as well as heard some good singing. And then prayed in the New Year.  My family sang (‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’), even my little brothers did and they did a really great job.

I saw a challenge online the other day to take one picture everyday for a year. I thought it was a cool idea and here’s what I took last night around one o’clock.

Thanks for reading. I hope you had a good 2017!

Happy Holidays!

So obviously I spoke to soon when I said I was back. One of the things going on that kept me from posting was that we were moving. And when we did move we were without internet for a little and things were just generally too hectic to post. So I’m really sorry but I can say for sure and certain that I am back! 

Anyway so here’s an outfit for you! (I look so tired in these picture…)

I’m Back! (Sorta)

I’m really, really sorry I haven’t posted in over three weeks. I have a very good excuse for why, something big happened in my family and I was either too tired or too busy to post. I’m going to try to post at least once a week from now on because I really do like blogging.

So thank you for reading and have a great day! ❤

Elisabeth
