This has been one of the most challenging, important, and freeing things I’ve learned this year. Thanks @drterimurphy 💖 #repost
“I hate getting triggered. It’s so hard and makes me wonder if I’ve really progressed as much as I believe I have. My body responds. I have negative thoughts (about myself and other people), and I do things sometimes I wish I didn’t do. That’s getting triggered.
One thing that helps me so much when I’m triggered to stay in my healthy self space and stay out of blame is to remind myself that the trigger is in me. Someone else did not trigger me. They can go do the same thing to someone else and that person isn’t triggered. I have raw spots that are unique to me, so when someone or something touches one of those spots, I respond! It’s a signal to me that I have tenderness there and can offer myself compassion in a moment of suffering. When I can acknowledge the suffering for what it is, without judging myself or others, I am free to breathe and seek what I need to care for myself in that moment. I can focus my attention on love instead of raging and thrashing and blaming and shaming (though I sometimes still go there as a knee jerk...triggers are fast - 6/10 of a second fast).
What would happen if you invited yourself to reflect on this truth - that the trigger is in you, just as it is in me What if we were able to acknowledge our tender places that hurt when pressed and just name it Name it and offer ourselves love and compassion and comfort and care. Maybe that’s asking a loved one for a hug. Or a bath. Or ask our therapist for a session. Or go on a walk. Whatever works for you when you are in a raw place.”
I hope I make a little sense with this message ❤️
Pots. Studio still life. Home again today, on the road again tomorrow.🚌 Trying to chill like these pots, but I'm running around in circles. You know the feeling It's cold and cloudy(I'm wearing a touque!(knitted hat))and I feel like I'm running out of summer. I want to weed the garden, catch up on paperwork, clean the house, clean the car, do laundry, pack pots, make pots, take a hike, eat garden veggies, Marie Kondo my closet, get groceries, wire the upstairs(it's gutted, leaking roof), but also...do nothing. Maybe light a fire, make some tea, read that book.
Album Review: Ginger - Brockhampton
Sadly, i think i went into this album with too high of expectations. The singles NO HALO, IF YOU PRAY RIGHT, BOY BYE, and I BEEN BORN AGAIN. Honestly got me super excited for the album. While listening multiple times, I found me enjoying the singles more and more, and the album exclusives less and less. While HEAVEN BELONGS TO YOU, and ST.PERCY, are really really good. The rest of the album was really just average. Nothing necessarily stuck out. It seemed pretty basic and sounds similar to a lot of other things that can be heard on the radio or pandora. I hope that in the future, they can go back to being super creative and instrumental, because risk taking BH, is the best BH. Nevertheless, we got an album to enjoy this year which hasn’t happened much, 2019 has been a slow year.

at heart, at home, outside and at the store too. Homegirl is on 1000 lately and I’m low key scared it’s the onset of 4. Trying to temper the urge to “tame” her and somehow stay sane.
Never apologize for being a powerful fucking woman- unknown
Thank you for the bit of joy by way of jeans, @nuuly. 💙✌️
Sweet bub turns 3 today! Loveeee our boy 💙

The conversation that happens when you brunch with boys
When the kids have all returned home from their summer adventures, and school gets back into full swing around here..... If I’m going to eat breakfast it’s got to be quick. This simple morning mix is one of my favorites to have on hand. Yes, I know you can buy it already mixed up from the store, but it’s so much more fun to mix it up yourself and add what you love.... Are you a breakfast person If yes, what’s your favorite breakfast when mornings feel crazy and rushed
3 years ago, on this exact day, my life shattered to pieces. I had never experienced so much fear in my life. Everything in my life was out of my control. I had no idea that God was going to use my pain and tragedy and turn it into a story of triumph. I can see now that everything happened the way it was supposed to and it all happened for a reason. I can’t put into words how hard it is to navigate through a tragedy without any hope. You search for any glimmer of hope that it will be ok, and that you’ll make it through. Your faith is tested and you can either get mad and run from God, or cling to Him out of desperation and trust his plan. .
I never thought that so much beauty could follow such a hard time in my life as I was trudging through it. But I can see now and it all makes perfect sense.
Whatever storm you may face, know that you are strong and you will make it through. If you need any glimmer of hope that it will get better, remember this face. This smiling face. This face that once forgot what happy felt like because she was so broken.
Finalllllyyyy getting our bedroom back and getting moved in ✌🏻, 1.5 months after moving.
The attic bedroom, our bedroom, had to be unexpectedly demo’d right after we moved in when it was discovered there was zero insulation. 😳 A one week project turned into almost 5-6 weeks and we were sleeping on a mattress on the floor among mountains of boxes in the tiny nursery.
We got the okay to move stuff up here on Friday!
It feels really good to have gotten rid of many huge boxes, gathered a bag to donate, and to get unpacked even more. We still have a long way to go to get organized after moving into a smaller space, but it’ll happen bit by bit as my nesting ramps into high gear 🤣

Sunday morning mirror selfies with my girl surrounded by piles of our stuff. Moving you guys, it’s taking it out of me. It’s a weird emotional thing I wasn’t prepared for. I’m not “sad” about the change necessarily but I think the fact that we are selling or donating about half of our belongings is just emotionally draining. Some things have memories attached to them, even though my logical head knows it’s time to let go. Yesterday we pulled down the decor off of our walls and packed up the garage, and the playroom. Everything feels a little bare in here but as long we’ve got each other, we don’t need much else.
13 days until we move, ah! I’ll probably be a little less present on here for the next couple weeks. Today we’re packing and packing and then packing some more. What are you guys up to today Tell me it’s something exciting so I can live vicariously through you 🤪
Вчера я впервые обманула чувства и доверие любимого человека.
Это очень стремное чувство, скажу я вам. Я не думала, что со мной такое может произойти и я упаду так низко.
Я могу свалить часть вины на соблазн, который был разлит в воздухе славного города-героя Москва. Но в глубине души я прекрасно знаю: ответственность, Юля, возьми уже на себя ответственность за произошедшее.
Итак. Вчера, в квартире моей подруги, я, находясь в твёрдом уме и трезвой памяти, сделала это. Я проспала до 12:21 по московскому времени.
За это время я пропустила 31 звонок от супруга. Тревожиться Никита Владимирович начал в 8 часов 4 минуты утра. Субботнего утра, иф ю ноу вот ай мин. Подождав час после первого неотвеченного звонка, супруг мой предпринял следующую попытку дозвониться до жены, то бишь до меня. Ну, ок, ок, не одну попытку. С 9:12 до 9:33 он пытался 13 раз. Я не отвечала.
Ещё час ожидания и последняя, активная, роковая волна прозвонов совершена была честнейшим Никитой Владимировичем. 17 вызовов один за другим. 17 раз через время и пространство летели сигналы, посылаемые этим терпеливейшим из смертных.
Я понимаю, что жить со мной и дальше он сможет с огромным трудом и скрипом. Ведь где это видано, чтобы я хотела спать аж до полудня! Ведь последние 9 лет, стоит лишь первому золотому солнечному лучу появиться над горизонтом, как я, свежая роза, божья пташка, уже лечу совершать великие дела. Уводя при этом из комнаты двух ангелоподобных, но сиреноголосых драконов и давая самому Никите Владимировичу выспаться до того самого полудня.
А тут такой обман. Такой обман. Оказывается все это время я....не высыпалась сполна и обманывала мужа Что делать дальше, девочки Кто сталкивался Как сохранить семью
No useful captions today because my brain has melted together with this heat. 🧠
Well and also I’m sticking to the policy of no smart posts on the weekends because you guys don’t seem to react to them too well. 😅
I mean, I don’t blame you. We all need some time to rest, and it’s important to allocate time for that.
So today was a day for a long walk, groceries, apple cider and editing a new video to be released tomorrow.
Also my bf is playing music that’s too brutal even for my ears right at this moment. Send help. 🤯
What was your weekend highlight Share with me how you like to spend your weekends! ❤️
Cousins are such a gift! I grew up close with my cousins, and I'm so happy Lincoln has cousins to create memories with of sleepovers, holidays, adventures, and so much more! He has 3 other cousins not pictured here, and I'm sure many more to come. Have I mentioned my husband is the oldest of 6! Happy Sunday, friends!
First Impressions: The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% (purchased from Cult Beauty).
To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of the Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5. It's a lightweight serum that's easy to apply to and spread on the skin but, it leaves my skin feeling a little too tacky. To remedy this problem, I usually mix this in with my moisturiser. This serum also does not hydrate my skin as much as I want it to. It's not a bad product but I much prefer TO's Alpha Arbutin + HA for hydration.
I use the Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% during my PM routine because it has a consistency that's lightweight yet oily. I apply this clear liquid to areas where I have sun spots, acne scarring and pigmentation. Note that this product does leave an oily residue on the skin. Even though I've only used this product for 2 weeks, I find that it's pretty effective in fading my recent blemishes. It will obviously take longer to fade stubborn or old skin issues. TO makes some of the best, affordable Vitamin C products (I love their Vitamin C Suspension) so I'm excited to see the longterm results of this product.

Well our surprise trip was a success! It was so great to get away with just Rhett. We had so much fun at the game and it was a bonus to run into our friends! I am so grateful for Rhett and I look forward to many more anniversaries spent together. Through the highs and the lows, I’ll always pick you cowboy!! I do, forever and for always! Thank you for being the man you are, the best father, and the most patient and amazing husband in this world!!! I will never know what I did to deserve you but I will spend the rest of my life thanking God for YOU!! 𝑯𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒚 𝒂𝒏𝒏𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒂𝒓𝒚 𝒎𝒚 𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆!
It still blows my mind that I carried this baby for 9+ months, spent 26 hours in labor, got a 2nd degree tear pushing him out, feed him from my body... but dude looks just like his Daddy 🤪 Not fair! 🤣💙 #olivergrey #dahliadeck
I met my brother on my walk this morning! Didn’t talk much 🤷🏼♀️
Three little women!! I can only imagine what it’s like to have an aunt only 4 and 7 years older than you but I’m greatful my girls know how amazing it is!! The bond between these three is unbreakable and i can’t wait to watch them grow up together! You know, my baby sister and i are 22 years apart and that was quite an adjustment for me, but she was always MY baby from the day she was born!! So seeing her be such an amazing aunt to these babies she wanted me to have so bad lol is such a blessing!! Happy Sunday everyone from my little women!! #littlewomen #blessings #babysister #raisingqueens
From the second month, baby + helped so much🥰, it has lullabies in it 💤🎶🎶🎶 helped up to 3 months, and then he fell asleep by himself 😴
At 5 months, he began to fall asleep again with difficulty. We weren’t helped by the classic lullaby twinkle twinkle ✨
Our lullaby is jingle bells 😂🥰 What lullaby helps your baby fall asleep
Нам со второго месяца стала помогать програмка baby+ 🥰, в ней есть колыбельные песни💤🎶🎶🎶помогла до 3х месяцев , а потом сам засыпал 😴
В 5 месяцев опять стал засыпать с трудом . Нам не помогла класическая колыбельная twinkle twinkle ✨
Наша колыбельная это jingle bells 😂🥰
Какя колыбельная помогает вашему малышу уснуть
Dari bulan kedua, bayi + sangat membantu🥰, ada lagu pengantar tidur 💤🎶🎶🎶 membantu hingga 3 bulan, dan kemudian dia tertidur sendiri himself Pada 5 bulan, dia mulai tertidur lagi dengan susah payah. Kami tidak dibantu oleh twinkle twinkle pengantar tidur klasik ✨ Lagu pengantar tidur kami adalah jingle bells 😂🥰 Lagu pengantar tidur apa yang membantu bayi Anda tertidur

Makeup Reviews: MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Powder in 'Medium Dark' (around R495) and Essence Prime Studio Pore-Minimizing and Mattifying Primer (R75). ___________________________________________
I am loving the MAC MSF Powder. I often use this as a powder foundation on great skin days (when I don't need much coverage) and it adds just enough coverage to even out my skin tone and to blur mild texture. Because this powder doesn't really help to set my liquid face makeup, I tend to also use this as a finishing powder. It just helps my makeup look more natural and skin-like. I don't think this is a must-have product but I appreciate having it in my collection.
The Essence Pore-Minimizing + Mattifying Primer is rather meh. It has a lightweight, mousse-like consistency and is easy to apply to the skin. This product is also slightly cooling on the skin but I don't think it does a great job at mattifying my skin. Also, it helps to blur small pores but it doesn't do much for medium to large pores. It's also worth mentioning that this product is heavily fragranced. I'll continue to use this primer but I won't repurchase.

Products I've (Sort Of) Changed My Mind About.
Glossier BDC - I didn't think much of this skin salve at first since the formula is quite thin, slippery and not moisturizing enough for my lips. But I've enjoyed using this for my tattoos and I sometimes add a little bit of this over my powder highlighter to give it a 'wet' look.
COSRX Advanced Snail Mucin Essence - this is a gentle yet effective product that helped to add some hydration to my skin. But it didn't do much else so I wasn't the biggest fan of it. However, I sort of miss using this product and I feel like my skin hasn't been as hydrated as it was when I was using this essence (even though I'm currently using other HA products). So I may repurchase this in the future.
Revlon Colorstay Foundation (for Oily/Combo Skin) - this used to be my holy grail foundation for years but I just don't like it anymore. I'm not sure if my skin has changed but this foundation is a little too thick and somewhat cakey on my skin. I much prefer foundations that look like skin.
African Extracts Rooibos 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub + Mask - I used to love this stuff as a cleanser and as a quick, in-shower mask. I'm currently using my 5th bottle of it and I feel as though it's not as effective (wrt to helping to heal acne and decongesting my skin) as it used to be.
Any products about which you changed your mind Comment down below!
Current Makeup Faves.
Nyx Off Tropic Eyeliner (Crushin' It) - this is such a brilliant eyeliner. It's a gorgeous bright pink shade and the formula is pigmented, smooth, long-lasting and transfer-proof.
Real Techniques Stippling Brush - this brush does a great job at distributing cream/liquid blushes without creating any streaks or patches and without moving the foundation underneath.
3CE Take a Layer Multi-Pot (Common Time) - this is a rather 'dry' cream blush that has beautiful and even pigmentation. It's such an easy product to apply and blend and the shade (an orange-red) is gorgeous.
Colourpop Single Eyeshadows (Try Me, Making Moves, Chic Happens) - CP's pressed powder eyeshadow formula is one of my faves. These shades blend like a dream!
Nabla Single Eyeshadow (Absinthe) - this is a gorgeous icy blue-purple duochrome and the formula is super smooth (and almost glossy/ wet-looking). Because it lacks a bold base pigment, this eyeshadow is perfect as a topper shade and as an inner corner highlight.

Makeup Review: Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder (mini size from Cult Beauty).
This is a super hyped up product that I did not like at all. Firstly, the holes in sifter are so small so I struggled to get enough powder out of the tub. Secondly, the powder isn't as finely milled as I would've liked it to be. But, despite this, the powder wasn't chunky or uneven when applied to the skin. My main problem with this powder is that it didn't actually set my makeup. Because of this, the liquid makeup on my face creased, transferred and didn't last as long as it usually does. Also, this powder looked super cakey on my skin and emphasized every bit of acne, texture and lines. Seriously, this powder settled into lines and texture I didn't even know I had. My undereye area looked drier than the Sahara desert. On a more positive note, the powder didn't leave a white cast on my skin.
I ended up decluttering this product after a few uses and I definitely will not repurchase. That being said, a lot of people love this powder so what may not work for me may work for you (and vice versa). Have you tried this product Comment down below! #burgundyxhourglass
Sold “Golden Grace” giclee print to a collector in #newyork!
Giclee is the first and only fine art print to be made with an ink jet printer. Pronounced, zhee'clay, the word comes from the French, meaning to spray, which is exactly what an ink jet printer does. ... The quality of a giclee print is far superior to all other forms of printing.
