"New" Clothes Tip #1

Hey Ladies! :D

Have you been feeling like you have NOTHING to wear to church or youth conferences that are coming up? Can't afford to buy new clothes or just don't have time to run to the store and buy a new clothing item?

Well, I found a SMALL SOLUTION for us girls who live with our mom, a girl friend or sister (who may be a little bigger than us) with cute style! :) Yayy! But I'm pretty sure that sisters and girl friends already share clothes lol but for those of us who don't have sisters...I give you my FIRST "New" Clothes Tip :)


Just on Sunday evening, I couldn't find my black shirt that I wear frequently (when I don't know what else to wear & yes it gets washed every time lol). I was kind of going crazy! I NEEDED that black shirt...I couldn't find anything else I wanted to wear that night...buuuttttt, I looked in my mom's closet for a shirt that might match! Just in case she had anything.

***Now, for those of you who don't know my mom, she is a little bigger than me (bigger sizes). Like in jackets, I wear a 2P and she wears a 6. With skirts, she is several sizes bigger than me so I can't fit into her skirts. And with her shirts, they are too big and baggy on me.***

Well ladies...for me, the problem is that my mom's clothes are TOO BIG! >:( She has some cute stuff too!

So when I looked in her closet, I found a blouse she has had FOREVER and thought, "This will go PERFECT with my outfit for tonight!" It was all around too big but I had a few tricks up my sleeve :)

You see, I planned on wearing a high-waisted skirt with a belt...And that solves the problem with the shirt being to big around my waist/bust. All you have to do is tuck it into your skirt :) SIMPLE, right!? So the next time you want to wear your mom's shirt, tuck it in so it doesn't seem too baggy!!!

Next were the sleeves :/ If your mom has longer arms than you do, either roll the sleeves up to your wrist or scrunch them up to your elbow...For my mom's shirt, the sleeves were at a weird length but they had a scrunchy cuff (at an odd length between my elbow and wrist). So I moved to scrunchy part above my elbow and let all the extra material hang down (below my elbow) to make it modest.

And of course, I think WE ALL have a problem with our necklines being TOO LOW! So I put a shirt underneath that would fix that problem :)

And wallah! ------->

*Remember to tuck in shirts that are too big, roll up sleeves that are too long, and bring that neckline up! :)

Love Megaroo <3
P.S. Hope this helps!

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

The Struggle is Real

I am not usually the person who spreads their woes on Facebook, Instagram, or blog. Tonight may be the exception but I will refrain from letting emotions get the best of me.

We are all facing trials. Whether you are 16 years old and tempted to cut your hair, 18 years old and thinking about leaving the church since you are technically an 'adult', 21 years old and being pressured to drink, or 24 years old and struggling with hurt and depression.

The struggle is REAL!

The truth is, we are all at different points in our walk with God and, believe it or not, the trials are ALL God-ordained. They have been put in our life specifically for us and to make us more like Christ. The struggles you are facing are a test of your faith and love for God, but they are also there so you can learn from your mistakes and help others when they go through the same trial.

Honey, if you are dealing with hurt, I could quote scripture after scripture giving you encouragement and to cast your cares on Go…

Don't be ashamed

Since my previous post, Walgreen's called me in October and offered me a Pharmacy Technician position! How amazing is that?!  I was so thankful to get hired by my intern site because I knew the patients, the daily routine, and they already felt like my work family.

When the time came to order my scrubs, there was no way I would wear their scrubs pants and I spoke up right away. I told my manager, and guess what? He sent out an email, and it was approved for me to wear a scrub skirt. Let's just say I was the first for them :) but I get so many compliments at the pharmacy! So many of my patients have come in and commented on how cute it was, how they haven't seen a scrub skirt, didn't even know they made them. And OH MY GOODNESS, the compliments on my hair! LOL!

Let this be a reminder for all the girls - all my friends - don't be afraid or ashamed of what (and Who) we stand for! You are a light! :)
