Hey Treasures, Happy Makeup Monday!!

This weekend was Mr. Aguila's birthday and we went out for the day and of course I had to do the hair and the make up. 
We always have such a good time together.  In love since 2005.
Color revealed! This is my Ursula look! HA!!!

If you are on KEEK you may have seen my Keeks on the E.L.F Disney Villains 2013 Look Book, if not don't Fret, here it is.

So here is a look at my FOTD and below another KEEK with a look at the eyeshadows I used.

Fall {Follow Me} Bible Study

Hey Treasures and Happy Thursday!!!

Today has been an emotional day for me, not really sure why besides being a girl, if you know what I mean! So I took a day off from work because I am just not feeling myself today.  Praying to get out of this emotional/hormonal roller coaster.

So anyways, it is my favorite time of the year (which should have me in a joyous mood) and when the lovely Christie of Satisfaction Through Christ  announced a Fall Bible Study I was all for it. 
Have you done an on line bible study before?
 photo Bible-Study-Button_zpsd20943ba.jpg
Yesterday we did introductions and linked up our blogs.  You can check it out here:

The Book we are using is FOLLOW ME by David Platt.  The book says "A Call to Die, A Call to Live."  Have you read this book?  Do you have this book? 

Join us for a time to be together and get encouraged and grow deeper in the Lord. I am really looking forward to this.  I am not sure why but I know God is up to something. Christie asked us in the intro post above to "leave a comment below introducing yourself and telling us a little bit about why you signed up, what you hope to take away from our time together, and any prayer requests you may have."  I haven't commented because I am really not sure all I know is that when she announced it, I was all for it. Ordered my book on Amazon and I am ready to go.


To view the announcement and/or to sign up, CLICK HERE!

If you sign up, leave me a comment and let me know. This is going to be a great time in the Lord.

Blue Stripes

Hey Treasures, How is everyone doing??? 
I wanted to share another Outfit post with you beautiful treasures.  Tomorrow , 9/24 is my GIG (Girlfriend In GOD)'s birthday so on Saturday we all went out to dinner at Boiling Crab.  Have you been there?

It was a nice fall day and evening so I took advantage and busted out my jacket and my boots and the COLOR is Blue!!
We had a really good time at dinner, peeling shrimp and grubbing. The shrimp had the head and all. I tried not to focus on it but I was a little freaked out, just A LITTLE!
It was our first time at this place and we were so not prepared.  Mr. Aguila wore a white shirt.
Thankfully they give us these cute bibs. You can't really see from these pics but Mr. Aguila was holding onto the creepy head of a shrimp!! (EWWWWW)

So this was suppose to be an outfit post right?

Here are some pics that Mr. Aguila took of me and my outfit.  We took a lot of pics AGAIN but I won't bore you all with too many.
Mr. Aguila has me posing all different kind of ways because I am so picky.  It takes a million shots only to pick a few to share.
I also took some selfies trying to capture my make up but it was already night time so that didn't go to well but I will share anyway.

And lastly my EOTD.
I used one of the many AVON eye shadow quads I rediscovered a couple weeks ago. I thought this one perfect to kick off the Fall season.  This is the pallet that I discovered a MAC dupe in also.
For my outfit:
Jeans are Levi's
Jacket is A.N.A. from JCPenney
Shirt from a local store
Boots picked up at the mall last boot season, which means I need boots for this season. (They are Bamboo brand)

So tell me do you wear stripes? Like Levi's? Shop JCPenney? Own anything from Avon? How many boots do you have? I'd love to hear from you.

Saturday, September 21, 2013


Hey Treasures, Happy Saturday, I wanted to take Five Minutes of my Saturday and join.
Five Minute Friday
The Prompt this week is SHE and here are my 5 Minutes before I get ready for my GIG's birthday dinner. By the way, today is my Friday. Just kidding meant to do this yesterday.

She confesses that she still has many fears.  She knows the scriptures, the ones that tell her fear not, there is no fear in love, perfect love drives out all fears.  She knows the promise in Psalm 34:4 that says as she seeks the Lord, He hears her and delivers her from ALL her fears.

Yet she admits she still has fears. She asks God why.  She cries out to be free from the fears. Recently she became aware of her fear of failure which is rooted in a fear of abandonment that started when her dad died when she was just five years old. Oh my, this has really paralyzed her for so long. The other day as the Lord used her to minister His Word, she admitted to a church congregation that she battles with this fear. 

She explained how this fear keeps her from stepping out many times.  When someone battles this fear one just stays in the safe zone.  You don't want to do much because you feel safe that way. If you don't try or step out, there is no risk that you will fail.  When she was prompted to share this and admitted it, she felt no more fear. The guilt and condemnation of this horrible fear was exposed and now that it is exposed, she can work through it.  She shared how hard it was to admit that to them but that she felt much better after doing so.

Sometimes, we may know the answers, we may know the scriptures but it's not enough just to know, we have to live it out, hold on to the promises, make that declaration and believe the Truth. 
The truth that God has delivered me of ALL my fears so I (SHE) no longer has to live in fear. Oh what freedom that brings.

Hey Treasures, I am sorry, I didn't get to post my face of the day yesterday. It's been crazy busy but today is Thursday, which thanks to Amanda at A Royal Daughter I know it to be a day to share about your Desire to Inspire.  She usually has a link up but I checked and didn't see it.

I wanted to share with God's lovely treasures, the message that was shared at my family in love's church on Monday.  If you missed that post, you can read HERE.  So these are my notes, just try and hear my speaking. I am going to add in a couple nuggets that I shared as I was speaking. The good stuff that wasn't on my notes but just Holy Spirit inspired. I pray this will bless you.

ISAIAH 12:1-6 (NKJV)
A Hymn of Praise
12 And in that day you will say:
“O Lord, I will praise You;
Though You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me.
2 Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’”[a]
3 Therefore with joy you will draw water
From the wells of salvation.
4 And in that day you will say:
“Praise the Lord, call upon His name;
Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
5 Sing to the Lord,
For He has done excellent things;
This is known in all the earth.
6 Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion,
For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst

I will just go verse by verse using Isaiah 12 (found above)

Verse 1
And in that day you will say:
“O Lord, I will praise You;
Though You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me.
--In this scripture the prophet Isaiah writes "in that day(Possibly referring to the day of salvation?)  you will say, 'O Lord, I will Praise You;' “Praise” in this scripture means “to give public acknowledgement” and/or “to declare aloud in public”,  if you are making a public declaration or acknowledgement then more than likely there will be a gathering you won't be alone. At the time that the book of Isaiah was written, God was angry at the children of Israel, they had continuously worshipped other idols and were rebellious. The prophet Isaiah is prophesying how "in that day"  we will praise the Lord and He will comfort us. Before we may have felt alone or isolated but once the day of salvation comes for us we now we will be gathered together to give PRAISE to the Lord. 

Verse 2
2 Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’”[a]
When I read, “I will trust and not be afraid;” This reminded me of Psalm 34:4 which is a scripture that I have been declaring over my life.
PSALM  34:1-6(The Happiness of Those who Trust God)
34 I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant,
And their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him,
And saved him out of all his troubles.

Here I shared about my fear of failure. I am going to save that for another blog post.

3 Therefore with joy you will draw water
From the wells of salvation.

With JOY you will draw water (Springs of Living Water)
Well of salvation (Jesus)

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

ISAIAH 55:1a  (An invitation of Abundant Life)
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters;”

And in that day you will say:
“Praise the Lord, call upon His name;
Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
In this verse, Call upon His name can also be said as “proclaim in HIS name.”

Here we are NOT ONLY proclaiming-Declaring something publicly, declaring somebody to be something, show what something is-BUT we are doing this is HIS name.

There is power in the name of JESUS and not in the name of Victoria THEREFORE as we praise, call upon, proclaim, declare, publicly speak of what the Lord has done for you and for me, we must do it in HIS name.

We should be declaring our victories publicly, being careful that God gets all the honor and glory, Sharing ALL that God has done for us.

DECLARE that we are victors, more than conquerors, victorious, over comers, free, transformed, royalty. (you fill in here) WHO DOES GOD  SAY YOU ARE??? Start with yourself and then impart that into others.

Then we SHOW others by the way we live.

We make mention which means “to cause to remember”

This verse is urging us to publicly speak out on these things, to verbally express, acknowledge, share and spread the goodness of God. His love, His mercy, His grace.

Sing to the Lord,
For He has done excellent things;
This is known in all the earth.
This verse tells us to sing TO the Lord. He has done EXCELLENT things (NOT mistakes, Not accidents, Nothing questionable, or uncertain)


But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout (SING) for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name, Be joyful in You.

Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion,
For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst

Cry out and shout OR Shout Loud with Joy (like extra joy)
Shouting out ( Singing out) because the Lord isn’t angry at us,
He is our salvation
Our salvation from captivity (the people of Zion use to be the people in captivity in Babylon)
We are no longer captives but set free in Jesus!
That is worth shouting over;  that is worth singing about.

To close up, let’s recap what we have learned in this chapter 12 of Isaiah.

It is a hymn of praise and we see different ways to give praise.
·        Directly speaking to God (Verse 1)
·        Declaring about God (Verse 2)
·        Drawing near to God (Verse 3)
·        Publicly speaking of God (Verse 4)
·        Directly singing to God (Verse 5)
·        Shouting (SINGING) out loud in joy (Verse 6)

These are some things we can ponder about regarding Praise.
1.      Attitude of Praise
2.      A will to Praise
3.      Mentality of Praise
4.      Heart of Praise
5.      Spirit of Praise
6.      Time of Praise

The Colorful Skirt

Hey Treasures!!!!

I have another outfit post!! Say what??

 So as Life as Mrs. Aguila,  I have been blessed to marry into a family who loves Jesus. My family in love has a Spanish church in the heart of East Los Angeles.  They are doing an amazing work for God there and God always uses my mother in love to pull on me. 

Every other Monday, they have "Dia De Las Damas" which means "Ladies Day". On this day the ladies of the congregation, direct the service. They also get to go up and each lady shares a scripture that the Lord impresses on them or that they want to share.  They also share testimonies or give praise reports and then usually they will have a lady minister.  This is probably my 5th time as a guest speaker for their church.  It is always a blessing for me.

I wanted to share what I wore (Mr. Aguila was taking the pics)...
As I was rushing to get ready, both me and Mr. Aguila just getting home from work, he chose my outfit.  He did really well I'd say.
Even though I am no where near my goal weight and haven't been doing really well as far as exercising and eating, my clothes are really fitting me big.  I bought this skirt from New York & Company, which I love to shop from, awhile back but had never worn it and now it was a little big. I didn't mind because I was going to church.
Be sure to stop by the blog tomorrow for my FOTD and on Thursday to read the message I shared and what God has been speaking to me and showing me and working on in me ALSO make sure to enter for a chance to win some fabulous prizes from three different giveaways I am a part of.

Of course you know I have to show you the shoes from Mrs. Aguila's collection that made an appearance. 
And here you have it, what I wore to church.
Blouse:  Worthington from JCPENNEY
Skirt:  New York & Company
Shoes:  Andrea Shoe Catalog
