Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Farewell to Dark Circles! You Will Not Be Missed!

f159dcad12ec63407bf87edbd6874c31With the holiday season behind us and now all the gatherings and get togethers are over we can focus on getting back on our normal routine. But I know for me there is one new beauty routine I need to add to my regime and that is covering the dark circles that have formed. Micky has a fantastic way to solve my problem! She suggests in using an eye cream with caffeine to help get the blood circulating. It will also help reduce some puffiness and intense darkness. Then she says and yes it sounds weird but use an orange lip stick or cream blush and blend into the skin to correct the darkness and then the dark circles are gone! I can say that this tip works very well and it has made me look more alert and bright eyed!

{Real Bride Series} Meet Sarah!

Meet Sarah, our newest member of our Real Bride Series!

How did you and your groom meet?
We always ask people, do you want to know how I met him or how he met me. Yes… there is a difference. So here’s the full story.

It was my freshman year of college. It was the end of August and I was riding my bike to a chemistry study group in the library. I heard a girls voice above the crowd say “Do you want to come to Bible Study tonight?” I stopped my bike, I had been looking for a Christian club on campus so I went up to the table. I made eye contact with a boy, I felt sparks run down my spine. I definitely believe in love at first sight now. He introduced himself to me as Lucas and I met everyone else at the table. I went to Christian Challenge that night, Lucas and I started talking about why I cam to ASU and what I was studying. He was on the leadership team so he did what he was supposed to do, he introduced me to a girl that had stuff in common with me. He wasn’t at challenge the next two weeks. I looked though, I wanted to see him again.

The third week I looked back to where he helped out at the soundboard in the back and he was there! Turns out he was a sun devil rep at ASU where he helped get freshman connected at ASU. So as a part of that he had been taking them to the Thursday night football games. Well, that night he ended up in my small group. Most of the people in my group were new so he was introducing himself to them. Then he looked across the circle at me and went “Hi I’m Lucas, what’s your name?” my heart sank a little bit but I smiled and said “My name is Sarah, it’s nice to meet you.”. We spoke that night about how I had been home schooled for 10 years and how I had a Texas accent. We talked for about 45 minutes that night.

I signed up for the fall retreat with Christian Challenge. I had to go up a day late due to homework, but I walked into the NAU Christian Challenge a little after 9am at the end of October. The boys were up and waiting for the girls to come over from the building they were staying in. I sat down on the couch and a few minutes late Lucas sat down on the couch across from the one I was on. He leaned over and put out his hand “Hi i’m Lucas.” I smiled again and shook his hand “Hi, I am Sarah. It’s nice to meet you.”

Somehow we started talking about how I had lived in Japan. He got excited because he was half Japanese and his mom was from Japan. We spent the rest of the weekend together. He said he knew he liked me when that night we were playing capture the flag and my competitive side came out.

Nowadays he says that he was trying not to focus on girls that weekend. He was really trying to focus on his relationship with God, but I broke through that apparently… oops. Apparently third times the charm when it came to us meeting.
