First Off....Happy New Year!

New year, new you? Or same stuff just a different day?

Many people are so excited for the new year. They get dressed up, decorate for parties, plan trips, and cheers to the New Year. They set new goals, wrap up old ones, and view the glass half full. While others....well let’s just say they’re looking at the glass half empty these days. They view the year as just another day of the same ol’ same ol’. They aren’t really optimistic about the new year, they don’t really set too many goals (if any at all), they discourage others who have set goals, and they may even   go to a party, but to them it’s just a party nothing more, nothing less. 
Personally for me, I don’t reall make “New Years resolutions”, but I do set small goals for myself and work towards them daily. Every time I used to make New Years resolutions, I would forget them and I would get so irritated that I couldn’t remember them so I decided to create a smaller list of goals I want to accomplish and add to the list as one get…

The Most Irritating Thing Ever....Dandruff!

Dandruff can be an annoying little thing. For some, it’s more than just a dry or itchy scalp. It can be all over their clothes, all through out their hair, and just down right embarrassing.

Dandruff, also known as pityriasis, is an excessive production and accumulation of skin cells. The skin cell begins to shed excessively at one time.

There are two types of dandruff; pityriasis capitis simplex, which is the most common form of dandruff, and pityriasis steatoides, which is a more severe case of dandruff. Pityriasis capitis simplex is a from of scalp irritation, large flakes, and itchy scalp. This kind of dandruff can still be attached to the scalp or scattered throughout your hair. Pityriasis steatoides is a collection of greasy or wax-like flakes with sebum that sticks to the scalp. When looking at it, it reminds you of cradle cap. If pityriasis steatoides looks irritated, it’ll be called seborrheic dermatitis.

Dandruff can come from many different things. It can come from (but not …

Im stuck...what do i do?

I'm sure you've heard phrases like; "be your own support system", "forget the haters", "motivate yourself", 'all you have is you", and many more like phrases. But what if you don't want to? What if that's not ranked the highest on your to do list? What if you feel like you can't?

We ALL get in those emotional spaces where we just feel like life is really trying us! We ALL get in those spaces where we just don't feel as creative and like our creativeness is in prison serving life without a chance of parole. We ALL do. Some people just wear life's journey a little better than others. Feeling like you're stuck is the most frustrating thing ever. Especially when you're trying new things and its failing, trying to connect with others but get no response, and when you're SCROLLILNG through social media seeing people steady "winnin'". Thats so irritating! It burns my grits and I'm sure it burns y…

The Power of Makeup....Is it real?

The power of makeup has been a topic for a very long time. As of recently, it has been a public topic. You can find so many videos on YouTube and pictures on social media about it. There are some very compelling stories about the power of makeup and the beautiful transformations. But is the power real? Lets chat!

On social media, the power of makeup can be seen as a transformation. The idea is to show how polished one looks after applying makeup. While others have made the power of makeup a time to share a story. Countless women have shared stories and even tears. Makeup is often times labeled as "trickery", "witchcraft", "hating yourself", and "in denial" by negative onlookers. The comments under the videos and transformations is enough to have you making time in your day to  "clap back".

Makeup has been turned into something it was never intended to be. People are making memes saying things like "you gotta take your girl swimmin…

Warming Things up a Bit!

The seasons are changing and there is a lot about your makeup and skin care routine that will change, are you ready?

While the weather will be getting colder, your lipsticks and eyeshadow can get hotter! This is the season for all your favorite vampy, deep, and rich color lip selections to make their debut. Plums, browns, and crimson lips shades are in and they're making their appearance in social media and in magazines.

Fall/winter glam can be super glam or it can be subtle but still very polished and beautiful. Here are a few suggested looks you can try for the end of the year!

If you're a girl that's leaning more on the subtle side, a natural sheen or glossy (If you're into that) dark lip with a soft brow and a simple natural looking lash or just mascara. To kick it up your look during the night or for fancier events, add a bolder lash with deeper toned shadows. Pictures provided below for a visual example.

If you're on the super glam side of things; a beautiful…

The Whoa's of Working......anywhere!

Working in this industry you will experience a lot of ups and down. Sometimes more downs than ups. Dealing with them is everything. How you get back up and handle things when they don't go your way speaks for your character, builds your strength for longevity, and it determines your next move.

I've been a licensed cosmetologist for almost 5 years, but I've always done something hair or beauty related. Once I got licensed I was excited to finally work in a salon of my choice and do what I enjoyed doing. I loved that I could enjoy discounts at professional stores, try new professional products that are being released, and be able to go to different classes to further my education.

But even with all the beauty, sometimes you have to wrestle with the beast. Working in a professional setting, you have a boss/supervisor/manager/shift lead/lead artist, etc. that you have to answer to. This doesn't apply to everyone, because some people work for themselves completely and colla…

The Beginning of Something New

I haven't written a blog in so long! I just haven't had anything to write about, unmotivated, or not enough info to finish the blog...or all of the above lol.

So I've decided to start something new. I decided to start a YouTube channel. At first I didn't want to because I was nervous and I didn't think I was prepared. But I decided to start a channel just because I wanted to try to get inspired again, practice my skills more, and just have fun while sharing my knowledge and sharing a little bit of what I do and what I aspire to do.

I know that some people are getting into it because they heard of people making money. The money would be nice lol, but I just want to do it because I believe that I would get inspired again and have a place to practice and stuff.

I wanted to share my journey because I want to inspire others to do something that's out of their comfort zone or something that they've been wanting to do. Forget what others are saying. Forget what…
