January Favorites

January has come and gone in the blink of an eye meaning it’s time for another monthly favorites post. Keep reading to see what makeup products, outfits, and Bible verses I have been loving, plus everything in between.


This month I have absolutely fallen in love with street style and any clothing piece that is out there and different. I haven’t necessarily incorporated these things into my everyday wardrobe but it’s getting there! This month I experimented with lots of denim, chokers, anything velvet, and various shoes that I received for Christmas. Above are a few of my favorite outfits from this month.

I have gone back to using one eyeshadow palette per week in hopes to equally use my makeup and have to say that Naked One was definitely my favorite this month. Other than that, I haven’t really come across any jaw dropping products this month.

I figured I’d show you all my favorite page in my Bible from this month. It took me forever but Psalm 86 is so beautiful that it was worth it. These verses are such a reminder that Jesus has the power to save us with his love if we open up and allow him to. I highly recommend you reading these verses!

I am still watching 90210 but will most likely be finishing soon so leave me Netflix suggestions below… please. For music I have been loving the songs ‘More Than Anyone’ by Gavin DeGraw and ‘Be Yourself’ by Harrison Storm.

This month I have really wanted to be better in every way. I am trying to really step up my blogging game and slowly but surely up my Instagram game and I want to thank you all because I wouldn’t be where I am without you all. Also a huge hank you for helping me break record views this month! Stay tuned for some very exciting content coming your way in February!

Finding Yourself

God’s Everlasting Love

Hello friends, ever since my new Bible came in the mail a few weeks ago, i have been reading like crazy! It’s gorgeous and leaves me a few inches of space on the sides to journal and write down my thoughts on the verses I read throughout the night. I purchased mine from Amazon so definitely check there if you’re looking into buying one.

One of my absolute favorite chapters is 1 Corinthians 13, as I find that the words of it are absolutely breathtaking. It says “If I have all faiths as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not get jealous, it is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”

These words speak to me so loudly, for it is a reminder that the Lord’s love is forever and we should seek his qualities in the people we surround ourselves with. “It bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” One of my dearest friends Jeanie always says “if love fails, it wasn’t really love” and as I read these verses from Corinthians it dawns on me that she is right. Love rejoices in the truth. I’ve learned that if you love life, it will love you right back and if you seek God’s everlasting love, you will have the power to love.

Let me know what you’ve been reading lately, I would love to chat about it! thank you so much for stopping by and reading. Never forget YOU are loved; wishing you the best today and all the ones to come. With love, McKenz.

Finding Yourself

I Finished Psalms!

Hello friends!!! This week I had the pleasure of finishing Psalms. If you’ve been around for a while or know me personally, you would know that I’ve read a little bit of Psalms every night since January 1st. It’s the only book I have ever truly finished from my Bible but I am more than pleased that Psalms was my first. I think that there is so much to learn from every verse in Psalms. It has truly opened up my eyes to trusting the Lord, finding peace with old friends, finding courage in myself, and remembering that God’s love endures forever. If you are new to reading the Bible, please read Psalms because it is absolutely breathtaking the way it has impacted me and turned my world upside down. My next goal is to finish Proverbs and start either Hebrews or Matthew. If you’re a Christian let me know what you prefer. That’s it for today’s super simple post. I hope you feel all of God’s glory upon you today and all the days ahead. With tons of love and a very happy heart, McKenz.

Psalm 150:3 “Let everything that has breath give praise to the Lord.”
