Movies I’m Always Down To Watch

And here we are again with another post that has nothing to do with fashion. 😀 Don’t get me wrong I like breaking it up a bit. But if I’m being totally honest I’m just doing a post like this because it doesn’t require me to go outside…. Yes that’s right, it’s only September and I have long sleeves, leggings and socks. in my opinion that’s messed up… 😐

Anyway, moving on to the post. These are in no particular order.

1.  THE ANNE MOVIES

anne

These movies are so nostalgic for me and I love them sooooo much! The music is epic and they’re great for relaxing (which is what I really need right now because my cat looks like it’s about to pounce on me which is freaking me out!). 

2. TO CATCH A THIEF 

thief

This has been a favourite movie of mine for awhile now. I’m not sure why I just like watching it if I don’t want to think. Plus the costumes are divine. 

3. THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO (the 2002 one)

count of monte

Yeah don’t ask. this one just kind of latched unto me. 😀 I went into this movie thinking I wouldn’t like it but I (obviously) ended up loving it!

4. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE   

auggg

And on a very different note we have Napoleon Dynamite…  For awhile I had wanted to watch a movie that made me laugh, like die laughing. Are friends lent us this (thank you 😉 ) and I laughed so hard!! I didn’t die thank goodness but really it was hilarious! And my younger sister can do a spot on impression of Napoleon. #mostquoteablemovieever

 

Well there you go! Hope you enjoyed this little list. I’m sure there will be more posts like this in the future because I am very anti-cold. 🙂 

What movies are you always down to watch??? Also if you know any good (clean) comedies please tell me. 😀

5 Year-Old Brother Picks My Outfit

WARNING: The following image may induce the following- bleeding from the eyes, vomiting, and in some extreme cases death.

Okay, obviously I’m joking! But it is pretty painful. Which is part of the reason it took so long for me to post this… Anyway take a look at it. 

IMG_8283
I look so tired and not okay with what I’m wearing. XD

Yeah…. Not the best…. At least with Ethan’s outfit, it was salvageable. But this is a whole new outfit. 🙂 Jonah said he chose a striped shirt and skirt because they “matched”. He chose the leather jacket because it was “cool” (like Ethan). He chose the cowboy boots and red scarf because who knows why…. 

Oh also I didn’t put the boots on because my feet have blisters all over them and it would have been really painful. 🙂 

Outfit details:

Shirt- Thrift Store

Cami- Given to me

Skirt- Some store that I forget the name of

Jacket- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollarama 

Boots- Given to me 

Well that is it… Sorry that it’s kind of short but oh well. 😦  I have will never again let Jonah pick my outfit. 😀

Summer Liebster Award

Hamlette of Hamlette’s Soliloquy tagged me to do this Liebeter Award (thank you so much!), so here it is!

liebster award 2

Rules:

Acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award. (Done)
Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you.  (Answered them. 🙂 )
Give 11 random facts about yourself.  (Yuck, I hate doing that but I did do it…)
Nominate 11 blogs.  (I did this)
Give them 11 questions to answer.  (Also done below.)

Okay here are the questions I was asked! –     

1.  Why did you start blogging?

 

When I was younger and I started getting obsessed with fashion, particularly modest fashion, I looked and looked for awhile for one I loved. One that I could go to for inspiration and such. I found a few but only one that I really loved and it inspired me to start my own! Like I said, I wasn’t able to find many so I figured the world could handle another one more. 😀 
2.  How long have you been blogging?

download (3)

1 year, 6 months, 21 days, and 18 hours! (Or since January 13, 2017) 

3.  What are three of your favorite blog posts you’ve written?

Ooh, I love this question! 

5 Myths About Modesty  – I’m super happy with how this post turned out and I might do a part two. 😉

Both of my “Modestly Styled Gals” – I love having people guest post on my blog. It definitely isn’t just about me. 🙂  

7 Hair Care Tips – I love my hair  and I’m really passionate about having healthy hair, so I really enjoyed sharing tips that I find helpful.

4.  What are three blogs you love to read?

Ruffles and Grace

Love her style and how she’s always modest but still cute. 

beccabeauty

I love reading her blog for inspiration. Especially since she does such amazing eye looks.

Minnie Muse  

She might not always be 100% modest (in my opinion) but she really does have an amazing style. And the quality of her pictures are great!

5.  How has blogging impacted your life?

images (1)

It definitely has helped me to strive to use the few things I have to make something great. I have to be pretty creative since I don’t have the best equipment and editing skills, and since I don’t have tons of clothes.
6.  Do you have multiple blogs?  If so, how many?

Nope. One is enough to keep me busy.
7.  What’s some blogging advice you’ve found to be really helpful?

To post regularly and on a schedule. I haven’t always been able to do this but I have found that when I do do it, it definitely helps.
8.  What’s some blogging advice you’ve heard and ignored?

To open up more to your readers. It’s not that I don’t want to do this, I just don’t really know how to… Also with a few things that are going on in my life I just prefer to stay away from those things. I feel like I’ve created a “safe space” for me where my life is perfect.  😐 But honestly, it’s just my default to be happy and optimistic. 🙂  
9.  What do you really enjoy about blogging?

It really does help me to be creative. I think it’s really important that everyone has a creative outlet. I love fashion and editing pictures so this is really a great way for me to have fun.
10.  What do you not enjoy about blogging?

The fact that I more or less have to rely on one of my sisters to help with blog posts about my outfits. I would prefer to be able to do everything by myself. 😀  
11.  How did you choose your blog’s name?

I really can’t remember. I know that I wanted the word Modest in it, but a lot of the titles were already taken. 😀 So one day it just sort of popped into my head…. 😀 

 

Okay here are 11 random facts about me.-

1.I want to go bungee-jumping.

2.My middle name is Georgel.

3. I’m currently listening to music.

4. I get up at 6:00 almost every morning.

5. I love biking and bike almost every day.

6. I don’t really have a nickname.

7. Last night my younger sister kneed my nose. Yeah, let’s hope she doesn’t read this. 😀 

8. I currently can’t think of another fact. 

9. I thought of a fact but I’ll put it down as number ten.

10. I wear the Star of David necklace (you might have seen it before in other posts) everyday.

11. I have a tea everyday, in the winter though I have at least two. Don’t judge. 😀

I honestly don’t know 11 people to nominate but I’d love to see 

Healthy Simplicity

The Godly Chic Dairies

Maidens For Modesty

do it. 🙂 

Here are my question (I tried to make it a fun list!)- 

1. Do you play any instruments?

2. What is the book you’re currently reading?

 3. What’s your favorite kind of pie?

4. Is there a word you always misspell? 

5. What is something that makes you nostalgic?

6. What’s your version of “There are two types of people in this world”?

7. Least favorite candy?

8. Favorite book to movie adaptation.

9. What color do you associate with the word “cool” (if any)?

10. Favorite Pixar movie?

11. A piece of technology you have that would be easiest to give up?

Did any of my “facts” or answers surprise you? Do you agree or disagree with anything I said? Do you want to do this tag?

My 7 Year-Old Brother Picks My Outfit

Yep, so it’s just what the title says. I didn’t give him any help! 😀 I’m going to show you the outfit first and then share my thoughts.

IMG_8250 5

Okay, my main (and basically only) problem with this outfit is the scarf… It just really, really makes an outfit that I would probably wear, into a outfit that I definitely wouldn’t wear. I did tell him when he was creating the outfit that I didn’t need a scarf, but he said “scarves are cool so you need one”. He also showed me how he wanted me to style the scarf.  😀 

IMG_8255 3

IMG_8256 2

Other then the scarf I would probably where this. The mix of patterns is pretty good, and all the black that shows up throughout the outfit really brings everything together. 

Outfit Details: 

Shirt- Given to me

Cami- Borrowed 

Skirt- Thrift Store

Jacket- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollor Store…? Not sure

Shoes- Walmart  

 

Please comment below how you think my little bro did. And stayed tuned for part two where my five year-old brother picks my outfit!

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. 🙂 

IMG_7545

IMG_7548

IMG_7550

IMG_7552

IMG_7562

IMG_7564

IMG_7587

IMG_7541

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”.

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! ❤

5 Myths About Modesty

As you can see from the title what I’m going to be talking about today are five myths about modesty.  You’ve probably heard some of these but here they are (just in case).

1. Modest is Hottest

You’ve most likely heard of this since it’s been going around for forever. And let’s face it, it’s really not. I thought that being modest was about covering up so that phrase is really sending mixed messages.

There are of course the men who find a woman dressing modestly very attractive (don’t believe me? Check out this post). But most guys don’t find modest the hottest.

Also, last time I checked God did not tell us to be hot, He did not say for women to try to look hot, and He definitely didn’t say “dress modestly but call yourself hot”.

You should check out this post if you want to hear it in more depth and better said.

 

2. Modesty is Optional

I’ve heard many girls (who are professing Christians) say that modesty is optional. But the Bible clearly says for women to dress modestly.  There are several verses in the Bible saying this and hear’s a couple:

1 Timothy 2:9 – In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

Deuteronomy 22:5 – The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.

1 John 2:16 – For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  (Love that one!)

3. It Isn’t Our Fault That Guys Lust When We Are Dressed Immodestly

To a certain extinct this is true. But for the most part we should be helping them by dressing right. And we shouldn’t be encouraging them.

Matthew 5:28 – But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. (I mean seriously, let’s help a brother out!).

4. Modest Clothing Is Ugly

I want to laugh whenever I hear this! I’ll give you some examples of why this is sooo untrue.

5. Girls Who Dress Modestly Do So Because of Self-Image Issues

This is true for some girls but for for the most part we just do it to honor God and our bodies. Dressing modestly hides your physical beauty but reveals your inward beauty! Just remember that! 🙂

 

That’s it, thanks for reading!

Crazy Sept. Days

This post should actually be called “crazy past few weeks”! 😛 But I felt that was too long. My family started school in late August (we can do that because we homeschool), just to get a bit of a head-start this year. So adjusting to the new schedule is partly why I haven’t posted in a while (sorry about that). And yeah, one of my sisters recently had a birthday. Things have generally been crazy these past few days.

Anyway, here’s the outfit I wore the other day.

me 12 1

me 12 3

me 12 2

I love this simple look. I have quite a few gray tops so I’m pretty much always wearing a gray tee and denim skirt these days 😀

Outfit details:

Shirt- Walmart

Skirt- Thrift Store

Sweater- Thrift Store

Shoes- Walmart
