This Is Perfection

She looked into their breathtaking garden
Husband and children playing happily
Fortune, fame, family, fashion
She had everything
She was
Perfect
Alone
She cried
Every single night
She resented his touch
She never really wanted kids
She sold her soul- for perfection.


I was inspired to write this a few nights back when I couldn’t sleep and this kind of just came to me. I think it stemmed from these YouTube videos I had been watching about the lives of influencers/famous people and how they were rich and famous but their lives were just very sad. I kind of just wanted to bring out the contrast between what you see and what is really going on behind the scenes. Usually people only out the good stuff out there- they never talk about the bad stuff but that doesn’t mean that it’s not there. No one can achieve perfection and everyone has their flaws and problems and that’s okay.

Lemons (Guest Post)

When life throws you lemons, you make lemonades or lemon ginger juice or tart it up or make lemon curds…
There are so many ways to make the most out of life
Be it following through on a goal, a conviction, an ambition, or navigating life’s unexpected curved balls
There is no single perfect way to figure life out
Heck, nobody has it figured out!
Understand that our circumstances shape up and make us – and although those circumstances may be undesirable, they inevitably make us stronger
We can’t control what happens to us – what we can control is how we tackle/handle it
so here is me to you, encouraging you and cheering you on!
You can do it!
Whatever you’ve set your mind to, GO FOR IT
You are, indeed, the miracle you need
You are the superstar of your own fortune
Show up & COME READY TO PLAY BALL!
…Your time starts, (looks at the watch for a few seconds), right about now
You are not nearly your thoughts, as you are your actions
so Mates, get cranking and get working.
Life is only as good as you make it
Ex all the pity parties and woe-is-me conclusions and get off your back!
Shake yourself off the dirt
Deduce and dissect the situations
Understand potential solution paths
Figure out the most optimal way
And Forge ahead!
If you’re chasing a goal
Stay on course
Enjoy the process
Feel the rigor
Keep your eye on the ball
Stay SHARPLY FOCUSED
…cut out ALL DISTRACTIONS or Side-tractions
Identify what matters most to you & why
Figure out how success looks to you
and squarely chase after it like a CHAMP
Keep pushing & Keep working & Keep Praying
One day –  YOU will be that water, that pierced through the rock 🙂
…as was said, pain is weakness leaving the body
They never said it will be easy
They only promised it will be worth it

The Same Routine

The same routine

Nine to five

Working like robots

Without looking up

Never once looking out of the window

Collecting material items

Never asking why

Never thinking what more is out there

Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…
