Effortlessly Chic Work Attire for Women

Working at an office can have it’s pros and cons. People typically tend to talk negatively about office jobs, but they can actually be quite intriguing, depending on your personality type. In office jobs you can often meet a diverse group of people and create great friends or develope fun working relationships with coworkers because of the close proximity and every-day banter common at these kinds of jobs. However often times, people who are not fond of dressing up to sit at a computer, often complain about such aspects – while others get excited about finding another business casual outfit to feel like a boss babe at work. No? Just Me? Cool Cool. Anyways if that happens to also be you, here are some of the currently trending business casual office outfits that might inspire you on your next shopping spree and/or give you some extra motivation for your current or next office job!

1. A Blazer with a Pantsuit

A blazer with a pantsuit is such a sophisticated look. This type of outfit is great for any and all professional-type jobs such as attorney, state worker, clerk, administrative assistant, etc. You are sure to be taken seriously and professionally when wearing an outfit such as this one. It is a great combo, especially if it is a matching set such as the one above from Shein. If you have an office job, a blazer pantsuit combo is definitely a wardrobe essential!

2. Pencil Skirt Outfit

A pencil skirt outfit is sure to accentuate those curves. Not that it matters at work, but you know it’s always nice to feel confident on the job. What’s better than a confidence boost to boost your productivity, right? There are oh so many options with a pencil skirt. They go well with just about any type of top – blouses, collared shirts, cardigans, longsleeves, or any combination of those. A pencil skirt outfit is a great option for a work outfit – especially for professions that require professional or business – like demeanors. Just don’t forget to accompany a pencil skirt with at least semi – comfortable shoes!

3. Business – Casual Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are such a simple wardrobe piece, yet they are such an elegant statement. These are perfect for office – wear for whatever office job you have, whether it be on the computer or up and about, or showing clients new real estate. Jumpsuits, of course with the right style, definitely give off the professional vibes you need for your client to take you and your job or business seriously.

4. Button-Up Loose Longsleeves

Button up loose longsleeve shirts are a currently trending wardrobe staple. They are great for work attire, but they are also great for so many other occasions. These loose longsleeves are perfect because they let you breathe with no added extra tightness of a fitted shirt. Not to mention, they make you look effortlessly chic and/or proffesional!

5. White Pants

There are endless options for a white pants outfit. There is something about the color white that makes the pants much more elevated than just regular blue jeans. Fitted or loose white pants are a wonderful option for virtually any office job (unfortunately not retail – as most retail require dark pants). Nonetheless, white pants are a must have, especially if you want variety for you new or current office job!

Subtle Thought Patterns that are Stumbling Blocks to God being Involved in Your Life

Sometimes in our everyday lives we can get so used to our every day habits, emotions, diets, etc. that we don’t really stop and question why and where they came from. Do our habits and thinking come from our own source of original thought, or are we influenced somehow to beleive “this is the right way to do it”? A common phrase is, “Well, that’s how I’ve always been taught.” Whether it be how we think, how we stay fit, what foods we eat, what emotions or words we express, or our expectations. Most often, though not with every single aspect, there is at least one area of our life that we do based on traditions – whether it be cultural tradition, societal tradition, or family tradition – that influences the way we do certain things. And so, whether we know it or not, sometimes the traditions may be more detrimental than helpful to us. Let’s explore a few common subtle traditions or thought patterns that are stumbling blocks to knowing the truth about God.

Subtle Stumbling Block #1 – Thinking we can save ourselves

Sometimes, especially for a non-believer, one might say – “Well, whenever I decide to, I can just pull myself up by my bootstraps.” in an effort to give oneself the credit of success and the flexibility and freedom to save one’s self. This is an old phrase basically meaning that one can succeed or elevate themselves without any outside help. The problem with that way of thinking is that it is limited. Yes, we may be able to help ourselves become better to a certain extent, but we cannot ultimately save ourselves from ourselves – we need an outside force. The same can be said about the physical realm, from something as simple as observing Newton’s first law of motion. “Newton’s first law states that if a body is at rest or moving at a constant speed in a straight line, it will remain at rest or keep moving in a straight line at constant speed unless it is acted upon by a force. ” So why do we think that the spiritual realm is any different? The spiritual realm has many of the same laws as the physical realm, even if we do not realize it or cannot see it with our own eyes. So let’s stop falling for the cultural lie that we don’t need to be saved or don’t need God’s help because you’ve adopted the common thinking of “well, I’m a good person and that’s all that matters.” That itself is a societal thinking norm that is totally false. Even if you ask people in jail, many of them might even say the same thing. So needless to say, saying “I’m a good person,” is solely based on each person’s own thinking and not based on God’s thinking. For scriptures even say, “My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me. ” So let’s make The Word of God and Jesus our point of reference for being saved and for our thoughts, instead of relying on our conscience which is unreliable according to scriptures. Even in the physical realm, ” In Aristotelian mechanics and in ordinary experience, objects that are not being pushed tend to come to rest.” Similarly in the spiritual realm, spirits that are not being pushed (by God) tend to come to rest (die). So let’s not follow the new age religion of self gratification and instead pull ourselves up to rely on Jesus to save us and help us. He is the best counselor for our success and saving.

Stumbling Block #2 – Misunderstanding the goodness of God

Many often question if God is real or if He is a good God because of all the evil things He “allows” to happen. Imagine if someone was watching a baby in a pool drowning and did not use their power to pick them up to save them from drowning. Of course, that is not good. In fact, I’m sure that kind of person would go to jail. Oftentimes, people think of God in a similar way – but it is a misconception. God is not involved in the evil of the world. That is Satan’s work – the prince of the air. So, we know that there is another entity in charge of worldly evil wrong-doing, yet somehow some people still blame God for the evil? The Misconception is that people forget that God is inside of us. He resides within human beings on earth and we must declare his power and presence in order for God to work in that situation. Thus, it is humans that are responsible for any evil that happens or does not happen. We live in a corrupt fallen world that is bound to have evil things happen. Our world is cursed by sin – what does one expect? God resides in heaven, and God also resides within people for helping us on earth. Thus, we cannot blame God for evil. For God is only in the goodness of the earth. He wants goodness, peace, healing and light more than we want it. “Now yes, yes creation sometimes screams a confusing message – fear, pain, grief,. Fire burns, rivers food, winds go hurricane, the earth shudders so hard it levels cities. But you must remember – this was not so in Eden. Mankind fell, surrendering this earth to the evil one. St Paul says that creation groans for the day of its restoration, making it clear that everything is not as it was meant to be. People come to terrible conclusions when they assume that this world is exactly as God intended. (An assumption that has wrought havoc in the sciences.) The earth is broken. Which only makes the beauty that does flow so generously that much more astounding. And reassuring. ”

The Swedish Guy Behind Our Favorite Pop Songs

If you have never heard of Max Martin, you may be surprised as to who he is. In a sense, Max Martin is the powerhouse of pure pop. Wait what? He’s a singer? No, not necessarily. Max Martin is the man behind many of our favorite popular songs. Realizing this the other day made me have that “my whole life is a lie” moment. When listening to popular songs in middle or high school, I was totally thinking that the singer was behind the inspiration and lyrics for the song. Songs like “Shake it off,” and “Teenage Dream” by Taylor Swift, “Roar” by Katy Perry, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake, and “Since You Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson were all iconic songs many teenage or 20 something females would jam to, including myself. While listening to the song, I felt a relatability to the singer for composing such lyrics that often related to my emotions. I think that is often what makes us fall in love with the singer, right? However, little did I know that someone else, a 46 year old Swedish dude, was behind the inspiration and lyrics of these songs and the singers were simply performing the ideas. Like What?? Realizing this makes us realize that the world is not often what it seems. We often become so infatuated with a certain genre of music or a musician, not knowing that the music is unauthentic and fabricated by someone we don’t relate to at all, and possibly trying to influence a young generation for the benefit of a societal or market demand. In a similar sense, the person behind the franchise lingerie store “Victoria’s Secret,” was created by an old man in Ohio. But that’s a whole other topic for a different day. After knowing that some of our most popular influences are actually not what they seem to be – that is, not transparent or representative of it’s source – we should realize that many other popular influences are also not what they seem. We should proceed with caution and research before so easily conforming to or buying what is “popular.” Ask yourself questions like, Who is behind this product, idea, trend, etc? What are their individual and/or company’s values? Who or what am I supporting when I give in to receiving it or part-taking in the ideologies of the trend? We always always always need to ask ourselves these questions before easily part-taking in trends or hopping on a bandwagon just because it seems cool and everyone else is doing it.

For reference, here are some more popular songs that were actually created/written and produced by Max Martin:

Since You Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson
Teenage Dream – Katy Perry
Can’t Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake
I Don’t Care – Ed Sheeran & Justin Timberlake

These Breathtakingly Beautiful Nature Photos will Excite your Inner Wanderlust

Sometimes in the midst of our every-day lives we can forget about our vast and beautiful earth we live on and how many stunning and serene places that inhabit our world. The earth is our playground and it is waiting for us to explore it’s terrains. Here are just a few picturesque and gorgeous destinations that will have you wanting to book a ticket to these places as soon as possible.

1. A Serene Sight

Crystal Clear Waters in Lake Tahoe, California – USA is where this picture was taken. This picture makes you want to dip your toes in this beautiful lake and take in all it’s beauty. From the fresh mountain air, to the green forest background and the calming water in the foreground, Lake Tahoe is a sight for sore eyes. This travel destination is wonderful for paddle boarding (just like in the pic), swimming, floating, or simply breathing in the outdoor freshness and relaxing in mother nature’s beautiful waters.

2. A Beautiful Waterfall In the Midst of Dry Land

The waterfall we are referring to is Havasupai Falls, in Supai Arizona – USA. The juxtaposition of hot, humid and dryness mixed with a fresh cold waterfall is what makes this destination so appealing and fascinating. This waterfall is also surrounded with some greenery and unlike other waterfalls, has clear blue water at it’s base. If traveling to Arizona, this destination is great for experiencing and photographing.

3. A Heavenly Getaway

This scenic photo was taken in Honolulu, Hawaii – USA. What is not to say about the amazing island of Honolulu Hawaii. This part of hawaii is home to a plethora of travelers from all over the world. However that does not impact it’s beauty. It remains one of the most beautiful islands of the USA. From it’s breathtaking views from hiking trails (as in the photo), to it’s relaxing beaches and high end resort hotels, you are bound to get lost in a dream at honolulu hawaii.

4. The Calming Waters of Alberta

What is not to love about Canada? This particular photo was taken at Moraine Lake in Alberta, Canada. It’s light blue color and reflection makes you want to stare at it’s beauty all day. Moraine lake is well known to tourists and travelers. It’s vastness and it’s surrounding beauty of tall mountains and healthy forest make for a refreshing and beautiful sight.

5. A Place That Makes You Feel Small

The scenic photo you are looking at is located in Zion National Park in Utah, USA. The vastness and greatness of this destination makes you realize how tiny you and your problems are. It almost makes you feel like you teleported to a new planet. These huge steep red cliffs might make you think you’re on mars. But do not worry, you’re still on earth. Zion National Park is a must-see, especially if you live near the pacific northwest states!

6. Stunning Water-flowing River

If you think this photo is just a non fictional miriad of a painting, you are wrong. This is a very real photo and it is located at Sunwapta Falls, Canada. This beautiful destination shows us the free flowing powerful nature of water surrounded by mountain beauty. From a distance, the waterfall seems small but standing above it, you will realize how great and big it actually is. This waterfall is a must-see, especially if you’re already in Canada!

7. The Glorious Redwoods

Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, California – USA is where this photo is taken. The redwood forest looks like a destination from a faraway mythical land. It’s tall standing trees make you feel like an ant walking in someone else’s world. This destination will remind you that we live in a big big world and we are so tiny in comparison to all the beautiful places the earth has, waiting for us to explore like little children.

8. An Enchanting Summer Get-Away

It is no wonder this destination is ranked the third happiest country in the world. The place we’re talking about is Switzerland. This magical destination has all you can ask for – Breathtakingly tall mountains with waterfalls, serene lakes, villages with plenty of land surrounded by mountains and nature, and just the most serene atmosphere. Visiting Switzerland will transport you to a different state of mind where you might never want to leave.

Why Cults are So Believable and Hard to Leave

Why are cults so believable and hard to leave or get out of? This question is loaded with many different perspectives, lenses, and opinions. I am exploring this through the perspective of a current non-denominational Christian.

First, we need to know what a cult is. Many often associate cults in a negative perspective. A cult by definition is ” a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous”. You may find definitions worded a bit differently, but they all have the same general meaning. It is basically a group of people or a club in which people become a little too obsessed with the thing in which they are devoted to. It’s not always religious. Though in modern times, cults are often formed in religions because they take an idea too far or too literally. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, the church or religion make certain ideas or rules the object of worship which inadvertently is the slippery slope into a cult that uses mind control on its members to keep them.

So we must ask ourselves, at what point does a group or club become a cult? Are all churches cults? What is the difference between a cult and a good church?

Let’s be honest, when the average person thinks of a cult, they may often think of a certain church or religion, and honestly that’s where a majority of cults are at. This is not to say that church is bad. Or that religion is bad. I think it really has alot to do with each individual church. What are they teaching you? Does it apply to modern day age? Is it backed by historical text (The Bible)? Is the church gaslighting you in a negative way? (I’ll explain later). Is the church growing? These, and more, are all factors to consider when figuring out if you’re going to a healthy church versus if you’re a part of a cult. Like many already know, sometimes it’s hard to know the difference. Let me help by explaining the many subtle differences between what goes on in a cult versus what goes on in a genuinely good and healthy church.

1. A cult gaslights you and keeps you in a cycle.

If a church gaslighting you sounds crazy, you may want to think again about what exactly they’re telling you. Are they telling you you’re worthy? For women- that you’re beautiful inside and out? For men- that you’re strong and courageous, etc. That you’re made in God’s image, capable of great things like following your dreams or starting that business? That you’re worthy both as a single person and as a married person?

Or, are they like businesses that create consumers by hypothetically creating the problem? (Like almost half of companies that exist) Similarly, in a church that operates like a cult, they might try to convince you or directly tell you “you’re a sinner” (contrary to telling you you’re worthy), and then they treat this word like it’s a disease. Next they explain how to “cure” this disease. They create the problem and then offer the solution. But wait, you can’t get the cure all at once, no no, you need to come back again and again, at least once a week – for the rest of your life. I’m not saying that going to church every week is bad. What I’m saying is that if that’s you’re mindset for going to church every week (to get rid of your sin “disease”), then you are going to church for all the wrong reasons. You’ve been bamboozled into a very convincing and false cycle of lies. Let me explain this further.

First off, the church should not continually be calling you a sinner. Though it is hard to wrap our minds around, even if we do sin, we are not sinners because Jesus already successfully did his part to remove that chain and identity from us. When I say “us,” I am referencing those who beleive Jesus is the savior. We call Jesus the Savior, not the ultimate guilt trip, yet for some reason why do some churches often feel like that? The church will tell you that you’re a sinner and then tell you not to sin. That doesn’t even logically make sense. Its like telling a dog they’re a dog but not to do dog things. The church instead needs to tell you you’re not a sinner. That you’re worthy and wise and spiritually competent to take on life. So, what does your church do? Does it give sound and true uplifting words of truth into your life for you to be the best version of yourself & the best citizen of society? Or does it make you take a guilt trip almost every time and create a cycle of repentance from the “church”?, like a business that just received a customer and uses ethos pathos and logos to keep them coming back for the product. Furthermore, the church might even try to convince you that your salvation is dependent on going to that church, when in reality, once a person receives God into their life, salvation and God are within us and not a far-away object needed to be continually obtained our entire life. The purpose of church is for the holy spirit to be present, fellowship, worship and teaching. The church facilitates salvation but it itself is not salvation. So if you’re having a hard time figuring out if you go to a good church or if you’re unknowingly part of a cult, the first step is to simply examine the verbiage used. What are they telling you about you? Are they creating a hypothetical problem within you, telling you you’re such a rascal and you need to repent every time you sin? Or, are they giving uplifting words of encouragement or truth to elevate your spiritual grounding and wellbeing?

2. A cult uses black and white language or thinking, often with little to no explanation.

Black and white language fits well with cults because they like to portray things as an extreme. For example, if you grew up going to church, you may have been told in a sermon that “sex is bad.” (Just an example of many of a plethora of topics). Here’s the thing, sure maybe premarital sex is not okay. But even more so, I do not know of one friend who had a pastor explain the why behind this. As if teenagers are supposed to know why it’s bad. I think the church should be more open about those topics. Like, instead of saying a black and white blanket statement like “sex is bad”, “the devil makes you lust,” or “if you sin youre going to hell if you dont repent” which invoke guilt, how about explaining it a bit better, in a more human way rather than in a religious way. Like – wait till marriage to have sex because physical touch or intimacy creates chemistry, which can mess up and dramatically alter one’s perspective of their partner. It can deceive you to think that someone who obviously isn’t the one for you, is the one for you, because the physical touch (the feel good feelings) messes up your ability to really see them for who they are. When a church uses such vague blanket statements as the one’s previously stated as examples, without explaining them, they leave a big gap for false teaching and is a red flag for being a cult.

3. A cult tries to make their imagination your reality.

So what do we mean by making someone else’s imagination a reality? In a church this can often be seen when a preacher talks about a dream, or if there is a prophetic word in prayer. Let’s explore these in more detail. When a preacher talks about a personal dream, they are explaining their own subconscious world. It is one thing to talk about a dream, which is totally fine. However it is another thing to say that one’s dream represents what is happening or will happen to the church. Sure, dreams may have been predictions in biblical times. However, today we cannot rely on dreams to tell someone else or a group of people their future. Dreams are not from God, they are simply programming’s of each person’s inner world. We should not be projecting our dreams onto others. The second one is when there is a prophetic word during a prayer. Members of churches often take these very seriously, yet often times we do not even know if the person saying them has been reading the word and in prayer. What if they just had an impulse to say what is on their heart? That is not from God, that is simply a word from that person – yet people think that they are hearing from God. If a preacher’s dreams are being interpreted as the future of the church or the world, or if prophetic words are being told from someone who was not prepared, you may want to rethink if you’re in a healthy church or in a cult.

Again, it really all comes down to the verbiage used and the lack of explanation of things in cultish churches. This is because if you feel you’re on the good side of the spectrum, members of the cult often feel very entitled or holier than thou, wanting to stay in that mindset. This is the sign that it’s too extreme. Nobody can be perfect. So the next time you visit a new church or even just at your own church, at least take note and examine these three things, 1. Does the church gaslight you and make you feel like you’re in a constant cycle? 2. Does the church use black and white language with often little to no explanation? 3. Does the church try to make an individual imagination everyone’s reality? Life is too short to get trapped in a mind game of lies within a cult. My hope in sharing this is that you take the time to find a genuinely good church that stays clear of all of those previously noted points, and instead uses God’s word to encourage you be the best version of yourself and the best citizen within society by looking towards Jesus.

The Sacrifice That Gets Us Unstuck

When someone thinks of sacrifice, they probably think of old biblical traditions, or something people do in those one weird religions and cults we hear about. Honestly that might be true, but sacrifice holds a whole new meaning when we use it for our own good. Here’s what I mean. Sacrifices exist. They have been a part of history for as long as we can remember. You may have read in books about people sacrificing to their gods in return for something better, such as a good crop or rainfall, etc. This is not the type of sacrifice we are talking about here, though it holds similar concepts. Those kinds of sacrifice were often associated with the dark world, it they were even real. The sacrifice we are talking about is the one God gave as a gift to mankind to help him become unstuck, or to elevate to our higher selves. Let’s explore what that means in further detail.

To believers, we know exactly what that means – or at least have a general idea of sacrifices, offerings and tithing. When we sacrifice, we give up something in exchange for initiating change in ourselves and to give stuck situations the opportunity to get unstuck, to progress and to make permanent change. So how does it really work? When we offer something up to God, He changes it by blessing it and then returns the changed sacrifice to us so that we can be changed by partaking it. God tells us that an acceptable sacrifice to God is by a portion of our finances. We sacrifice our money to God and He blesses it and changes it by using it for ministry and then we are sanctified by being changed by our participation in that ministry.

However, a common misconception is that sacrificing money to God will come back to make you rich. Sometimes that happens, but it’s just temporary. The point of the sacrifice of money is not to become financially prosperous – It’s to become spiritually prosperous.

Why does this work?

Consider how much anxiety, anger, selfishness, worry, etc go into our whole approach to money in the modern age. This is ripe for all kinds of addictions, blaming, and focusing on other people’s perceived dysfunctions. When you tithe, you take back responsibility for yourself. When you tithe, you are sacrificing, or giving up that sense of control, so that you can be exorcised of that reactivity or addiction.

We do it not to satisfy a budget or because we hope God will help us win the lottery or hope to get a raise – none of that is the point at all. We sacrifice (tithe) together because we need to get unstuck and because we need to get serious about offering something to God for His blessing and transformation – for an eternal prosperity.

The Top 5 Airport Fashion Outfits to Up Your Style Game

Whether you’re traveling for fun or for business, we all know the dreaded airport can be. For most of us, it means long lines and plenty of waiting. It also means making sure we look our best in (sometimes) uncomfortable environments where there’s not a ton of privacy. In short, it’s a perfect place to try out new airport fashion trends. But finding the right pieces doesn’t have to be difficult—and they don’t need to break the bank either! Below are some stylish options for the airport and traveling that will make your trips that much more comfortable. Traveling with long layovers at airports can be fun, but also exhausting. Whether you’re traveling alone or with your family, it’s essential to be comfortable while maintaining your fashion sense and style. Here are the top five airport fashion outfits that will help you to look good and feel great during your travel time.

1. Casual but polished


You’ll have many opportunities to flash your fashion sense on a flight or at an airport, but you’ll want outfits that are casual and polished. For example, a bright-colored dress or pantsuit is great for arriving at an airport in style, while jeans and a shirt will do just fine for your flight. A blazer and some jewelry can be key details that make an outfit stand out. It might seem strange, but those little details often give other travelers something new to notice about you when they look at you; it’s fun for them (and for you) when someone notices that cool brooch!

2. Basic black


There is a reason that black is an iconic fashion color. It is timeless and can work for any occasion. You may have even heard that black clothing absorbs light and therefore doesn’t make you look heavier. While that might be a little bit of a stretch, wearing basic black (or anything in black) can make you feel slimmer—which will always make you look better, especially at a time when your appearance could be under extra scrutiny (like at an airport).

3. Bright colours


Bright colors are always a safe bet for the airport. From scarves and sweaters to shoes and bags, you can’t go wrong with fun shades. For example, a bold yellow scarf will make any outfit pop at the airport (and not just because it’s the color of stoplights). It also goes without saying that anything in red is going to get your attention—whether it’s red pants or a bright-red shirt. Red adds some spice and pizzazz that would otherwise be missing from your outfits. Bright colors are big at the airport and even bigger when jetting off on vacation; experiment with different options and see which ones work best for you!

4. Seasonal wear (Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall looks)


It’s true that airport fashion doesn’t have to be complicated. And, it’s okay if you don’t want to worry about what you wear when traveling. But if you do want some travel outfit inspiration, consider picking up a few pieces in seasonal colors for the different seasons. For example, my favorite airport outfits include a cute light sweater and white jeans for the winter months and a cool summer dress with flats for the spring and summer seasons. It’s more fashionable to travel with seasonal clothes because it adds variety to your clothing options (you never know what the weather will be like at your destination). It also allows you get away with wearing less clothing because of the season as well.

6. Cute Luggage


Since airport fashion is about being stylish, but also about functionality, it’s important to have an outfit that makes you feel and look good. Different luggage and bags come in all shapes and sizes. Some are designed to be carry-on only while others can hold a great deal of items and accessories.
