“Moreover the Lord saith ,Because of the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton necks and wandering eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and make a tinkling with their feet; Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts….In that day the lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, the chains and the bracelets and the mufflers, the bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, the rings and the nose jewels, the changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins…the glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails……and it shall come to pass that instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair , baldness; instead of a stomacher a girdling of sackcloth; and a burning instead of BEAUTY.”
Day of Atonement is approaching. As most of our high holy days are, this day is a very important. It is a day to afflict our souls from sundown to sundown, praying for forgiveness, and essentially getting a clean slate. What better way to start then to wash your face?
The question is how should our appearance be amongst our fellow sisters? Should we jump out of bed and go about our day without a care of how we look? Or maybe it doesn’t matter if we wash our face or not because hey, we’re fasting anyway right? This shouldn’t be…

Makeup is such a broad territory that consists of many different products and “rules”. It seems like there is always a new trend or latest release of a makeup item that it can be a bit confusing to keep up with. Two things that have become more and more popular over the years are highlight and highlighter. These two products have become a part of many girls’ everyday makeup routines. So, what are the differences?
Women love to look good all to allure the eyes of men. Make-up should enhance the beauty you already possess not make you look like somebody else, a clown or a harlot. A little goes along way. Please seek out some advice from a professional or a sister that is educated in this area. I got this all wrong in my youth. It is a skill that needs to be taught and learned over time. Natural beauty is the best. I look at my daughter and wish I could turn back time…(sigh). Some women prefer not to wear any make-up and for some a little gloss will do. I for one have dreams of being low maintenance, but I am a high maintenance girl and love it! Work with what you have. Rivalry and competition with each other sometimes occurs at all age levels. Jealousy is a cunning demon fed with coveteousness and that is serious and not beneficial to our growth as women so be very careful. We spend lots of time and money at the hair salon, nail salon and not to mention our own personal grooming rituals at home. We sisters love to look fly and shop till we drop. Many of us have more lotions, creams, potions and perfumes than we can possibly wear but the men in our lives LOVE IT!

Let’s talk a little bit about plastic or cosmetic surgery. My two year old son likes to watch a toddler show called ‘Bob the Builder’. The characters sing a little tune that says ‘Can we build it?’ and the kids respond ‘yes we can!’
