Golden Tote //

I decided to do another outfit post before it gets chilly out. Of course we only have about two weeks a year of cool weather here in Florida, but I like to dress for fall, even if it’s still warm!

I have found God’s gift to women…it is called ‘Golden Tote‘. On this website, you can choose from a couple of different options. You will fill out a style profile and answer some questions. They have a tote for $49 with 2-3 items; you choose one item yourself and the other is a surprise they choose for you. Another tote is $149; you choose 2 items and they will send you 4-5 surprise items. Golden Tote also has a boutique online for those that choose to take the less daring route. All of their clothing is great quality and a good selection is also sold at Anthropology, but at a fraction of the cost through Golden Tote. Check it out! But beware, it’s addicting!

Punk //

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was very relaxing! The weather was absolutely beautiful, so we decided to go out and take some pictures. Photo creds to my talented hubs, by the way! He did such a great job with these pictures and we had a really fun time with this shoot. I am loving this cropped tee from Zara- it’s so light and comfy! The beading is so pretty and adds a bit of ‘umph’. The photos don’t do it any justice!

I had such a hard time choosing just a few because they were all so fun! And of course I had to take a picture for Tyler with his car. 😉

You Are Enough //

Do you know how truly beautiful and precious you are? I mean, all the way through, inside and out. Every single fiber of your being. It has taken me many years to realize my value and the journey was quite a wild one. But because of the transformation in my life, I am passionate about helping you recognize the beauty of who you are.

First of all, you were fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). I understand that you’re probably thinking, ‘Okay Alyssa, couldn’t you have thought of something a little less cliche’?’ We hear this so often, most of us become numb to what the scriptures say about our worth. We don’t fully process this in our hearts and in our minds.

So what exactly does it mean to be fearfully and wonderfully made? According to the Hebrew, fearfully means ‘with reverence and respect’ and the word wonderfully means ‘unique and set apart’. You were created out of reverence to be set apart. God didn’t HAVE to create you, but He CHOSE to create you. Why would He want to do such a thing if He didn’t have a meaning for your life? We were all created with a divine plan and purpose.

You have special gifts that no one else has. Nobody else has ever or will ever possess the exact same qualities and gifts as you. The dreams that reside deep within your heart reveal who you are. We do not shape them, they shape us. The dreams that God has placed inside of us are a part of who we were created to be, they are our purpose.

We are promised a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). God wants for you to prosper and cares for your well being with a love so deep, that He chose to be murdered for your transgressions, so that you may be made new. (Isaiah 53:5)

It is so important for us to know the freedom that we have in Christ Jesus. We must understand how valuable we are before we can even begin to fulfill our purpose. You are beautiful. You are valued. You are loved. You are M O R E than enough.
