Stress has been taking a toll on me as of recently. I’ve attempted to identify a brighter perspective and look towards remaining positive but for some reason, any version of good vibes has completely eluded me out here. Truth is... I miss my support system. I miss the amazing team I work with back home. I miss feeling valued. .
When I realized just what had been upsetting me this last week, I contemplated my “Why”. I’m here because I care about people. Because I love to help others when they cannot help themselves. I love to support others as they take on new challenges and obstacles in their life. There is nothing like the feeling of watching someone you helped succeed and overcome an adverse situation in their life. It fills me with so much joy and optimism. It lets me know that people are capable of some pretty amazing things with the right motivation. .
My “Why” is caring for others. .
I’m not going to let other’s negativity bring me down when I’m actually doing what I love most. Nothing can take that away from me and I know that my heart is in the right place. .

For me, January has just flown by. Usually it feels forever but I'm like...next week it's end already!
Hope anyone who has had a longggggg ass January is feeling better that we're nearly done! 🙏
//today// today is the day to start doing what makes you happy. Do what it takes to get yourself to a life you love🌸
You aren’t able to fully care for others if you don’t care for yourself. ➡️Self-care isn't selfish, it's necessary!!!! Too often we forget to take care of ourselves, we end up giving all we have to other people or things and it leaves us empty or burnt out. ➖ Well I have two words for you - INVEST & REST. Do what YOU love...read, drink coffee, sing, dance, hike, sow, explore .. maybe even go shopping. 😏 ->Take the time to pour into yourself.. that way you have that much more to give to others. 🙏🏻 -C

This is so true. I have enjoyed getting to a point where I see my experience as a gift. Everything is a lesson for better things to come.
It’s just a matter of hanging in there and trusting that everything is exactly as it should be and that things will work out.

Kevyn Aucoin was the man who first inspired me to become a makeup artist. I used to pore over his books, face charts, instructions and transformations. I couldn't believe makeup had so much power. Watching the documentary on Netflix was surreal to me - in my mind Kevyn Aucoin was some kind of angel, he had this quality to him that allowed women to *feel* beautiful - and that's the exact same philosophy I have carried through to today. Makeup is not about looking good or hiding imperfections, or even enhancing natural beauty. Makeup is something that allows every single person to *feel* beautiful, no matter what they see or have been told, or have told themselves. Thank you Kevyn

“We wanted traditional London—modern isn’t what we were looking for,” Dan Caten says. It’s a comment that startles a bit, considering that @dsquared2, the fashion label that he and his brother Dean founded more than two decades ago, has always been more rock ’n’ roll than royalty. Instead, the Canadian-born identical twins wanted a classic example of local real estate but on their own terms. So they went looking in a west London area that Tatler once called “mistressy and the fact cannot be avoided”: Maida Vale, where Italianate houses painted the color of clotted cream have hosted kept women and sex scandals (Lord Lambton’s spectacular 1973 flameout, to name just one) since the late 19th century. One of those stolid buildings, facing Regent’s Canal in the Maida Vale enclave of Little Venice, is now the Catens’ own. Appropriately enough, given the inhabitants, it’s a semidetached, one half of mirror-image residences built around 1830. (Anjelica Huston lived next door as a teenager.) Despite the location, though, there’s not a single Anglo signifier in its revamped rooms—no chintz, no Chippendale, no rus in urbe cheerfulness. That comes as little surprise, given that the Catens asked friends Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran of Milan’s @dimorestudio to decorate the digs with the same cinematic moodiness that the #AD100 firm brought to @ceresio7, the celebrity-magnet bar and restaurant that crowns @dsquared2’s headquarters. “We try to come up with a story line for every project, and we really wanted to create this idea of two travelers and all the treasures they’ve brought back from various places in the world,” Moran says. In Dan's bathroom, an Osvaldo Borsani mirror hangs above a custom sink and sink stand by @dimorestudio. Visit the link in our bio to see more of the home.

Just like the hair on our heads, our lashes also have a natural growth cycle. You can lose anywhere between 1-5 lashes each day which is why fills are so important! Because everyone’s growth cycle is different, fills times can vary. Typically, 2-3 week fills are best.

The cycle of a lash begins with the anagen phase — this is when the lash is still very young and too weak to hold a lash extension (extensions should never be placed on lashes during this stage). After about 3-6 weeks, this lash finally moves into the catagen phase. Lash extensions may be applied to the natural lash in this stage of the cycle. After about 2-3 weeks a lash in catagen phase will then move onto the telogen or “resting phase”. A natural lash in telogen phase can last anywhere from 3-8 weeks before it finally sheds to begin the growth cycle once again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀

My favorite pictures of MLK are the ones where he looked casual, at home with his family or even sitting around with other now famous civil rights leaders.
He was a real person. A real husband. A real dad.
Let’s don’t forget when we remember him all that he was willing to risk to achieve a big dream. A dream life he knew he probably wouldn’t even get to enjoy.
What are you willing to sacrifice today to achieve your dreams
What are you willing to risk to stand up for those that can’t stand up for themselves
you make me better than I was before
thank God I'm yours 📸 @pambanegasphoto
Thank you, Martin Luther King Jr., for reminding us that the small things can be just as great as the big ones. ✨ #MondayMotivation #MLKDay

Along with wonder handmade art and jewelry made my local artist like myself!

Getting rid of what makes me mad.

Future is not based on what you had. ✌💓
