With or Without ... Be true to yourself
Do what you love - whatever it is that makes you happy, and do it often


Hey yall!

So you know how I love makeup right? I do, i DO, I DO ... honestly it still blows my mind how it can completely change how you look and feel. For example there'll be days when I'm like "Uhhhhh life is blehhhhhh".... and then for the heck of it, I'll do my face and straightaway, the person looking back at me from my mirror looks like she couldn't possibly have a blehhhhhh day in her life, and immediately my day becomes all sunshine and bubbles. It's pretty powerful and it's definitely one of the great things about makeup.

With the help of my pots and paints


Lately though I've been loving this other buzz. The one where I go around without a thing (besides moisturiser) on my face. Honestly it's a little scary and ... a little liberating. Scary because I've always had hangups that makeup has always been able to fix, and liberating because suddenly those things don't seem to matter all that much anymore. 

I'm not saying I've giving up my pots and paints. Heck no, they're wayyy too much fun. I guess I'm just exploring alternate ways of being, and liking it.

What does it mean though?! Could I really finally have gotten to that point where I accept myself with all my imperfections. Where I say 'Hey love, don't sweat the small stuff. You're great just as you are. You're worthy and valuable and you matter no matter what you look like, what you've done or where you are in life." 

 ... that felt good. Really good.

And that brings me to my message today - 

Be true to yourself, you're more than good enough just as you are. Do what you love - whatever it is that makes you happy, and do it often. 


Love you!
