Loreal Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate and Refine Pores #VideoDemo and #ProductReview



I was on the look-out for a new clay mask since finishing up my old jar and discovered L'Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Masks. 

There are actually three (3) different masks to choose from but I was most interested in the Pure-Clay Exfoliate and Refine Pores Mask with red algae. I found it very easily at my local Target in the Advanced Skincare section. 




In the video below, I share my initial thoughts about this clay mask, how I used the product, what it looks like up close, and my after-use review.

It is recommended that you use this clay mask 3 times a week. I have a personal weekly schedule for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. So, make sure to schedule in some time for Y-O-U! :)

Story Time #Sunday | Time With God Ep13: Lois and Eunice Lead By Example #BibleDiscussion #BibleStudy #WomenintheBible



Selena Thinking Out Loud welcomes you to Story Time Sunday, Time With God Episode 13, a Bible discussion about how Christian women, Lois and Eunice, Lead by Example while raising their grandson/son, Timothy, in the ways of God. Although Lois married into the Greek culture, she was unbreakable when it came to her commitment to God and His Word. This strong faith in God carried over into her daughter's life, Eunice. Then Eunice continued to teach her son, Timothy, God's Word.



Children watch and observe us, which is also how they discover Christ. Here are five (5) ways to introduce them to Christ. These are also mentioned in the video below, in more detail.


1. Teach through your ACTIONS.
2. Pray as a Family.
3. Give gifts, crafts, and games about Christ
4. Use non-invasive ways to share Christ
5. Give children time to discover Christ for themselves

#VLOG: Chocolate Tofu NO BAKE #Pie | #DairyFree Dessert



Selena Thinking Out Loud is here with a Chocolate Tofu No Bake Pie dessert recipe that I haven't prepared in years. Wow! However, I absolutely love this NO BAKE pie because it's quick, easy to make, and your friends who frown up their faces when you say words like "TOFU", will love it (don't tell them it's in there)! 

So...for your next potluck, company party, or social gathering, prepare this Chocolate Tofu No Bake pie and let me know in the comments how your guests like it. 

It's rich and chocolaty, so I like to have a slice with a cup of hot tea! Enjoy!

Selena Thinking Out Loud welcomes you to Story Time Sunday, Time With God Episode 12, a bible discussion about the concubine Hagar, who became "the other woman" from no actions of her own. She was an Egyptian maidservant and a foreigner, in the Pagan culture, for Abraham's wife, Sarah. However, because Sarah could not wait on God's plans for child-bearing, she created a complicated love triangle in the process. So what happens to Hagar and her son, Ishmael?
