Feel Lovely

I LOVE bright lipsticks. Anyone who knows me would say that I am a freak about pretty lip colors. To feel fun, sassy and glamorous it's essential to put a little lip color on once in a while. I love me some pinks, plums and deep reds. I think they are luxurious and beautiful. They make me feel like a glamour queen. I wanted to share some of my lovely picks with you! 

I love Wet N' Wild lipcolor. They have a great staying power and are long lasting as well. Not to mention that they won't break your budget! I am all about having a tight budget, but finding things I love within that!

 You can pick them up at any drug store!

A few other lipsticks I LOVE!

Revlon Colorstay Soft and Smooth lipstick lasts long and feel sooo nice.

If you want a bold punch of color, but not a lipstick try lipstains! Covergirl Outlast lip stains are perfect for a pop of color on the lips. 

Nail Color is also another thing that makes me feel lovely and glamorous. At the moment my nails are painted a wonderful fuschia color making me feel like a goddess, even while doing dishes :) 

I love quick drying polishes because they are quick and easy when you're in a time crunch. I love the Rimmel 60 Second nail polishes. I have them in almost every shade. You can pick them up at many different drug stores, and they are also a product that won't set you back. They are inexpensive and fun!

Last winter I decided to shave my head...

A pretty forthright title, right?
Well, last November I shaved my head. I think it shocked quite a few people wondering why in the hell I would shave my head. I had nice hair...albeit ever changing. I think most people thought it was something "trendy" that I was doing to follow along with other radicals to give a big middle finger to society.  Although, I like that version because I am a rebel at wasn't my reason. 
Shaving my head was something I seriously contemplated for 2 years or more. I felt as though it would be healing in some way if I just released this outer idea of what I should be...  but I was scared...terrified of what others would say or think of me.
AND that, my friends is why I finally decided to buzz the whole thing off. 
We typically go through life secretly wanting others approval. We are constantly putting ourselves into these boxes by saying "Oh, that's not me..." or "Oh, I only wear my hair THIS way." or "Oh…

A dream of compassion...and self care.

Today I woke up from a dream about compassion.  Compassion of another human being. 
In my dream I was at my lowest and feeling as though I had lost myself in motherhood. I had a free moment and on a whim stopped at a tattoo shop. There was only one tattoo artist there and he had a free moment. So I sat down in his chair and told him I wanted to fill my sleeve with his art. 
If anyone knows me, they know I love tattoos. I love the feeling of getting new ink not just because it is excitement of having a beautiful new art piece adorn your body, but also because the act of tattooing in itself has a complexity in it that you will have to endure a little bit of pain  in the process in order to create something beautiful that you'll love.  It's an addicting feeling. It's one that I liken to having a baby. There may be pain involved, but afterward there is something beautiful and worth showing off. 
As I sat down in this chair I looked up at this gruff man, who had seen years of …

Honoring your Shadow - Self Acceptance of the highest form.

Honoring your shadow. 
I have been thinking about this concept a lot lately. It speaks volumes to me.  In essence it's a mind set of accepting and honoring all parts of yourself. whether they are dark, light, good, bad or things you want to hide. 
Honoring oneself regardless of your shadows and darkness is true acceptance.  I used to hide those parts away from others. The darker parts of myself would stay behind closed doors only for the closest in my life to see...and sometimes they're not pretty. 
But, I feel as though it's a disservice to myself.  If I can truly accept and honor all parts of me, the darkness included, then I am truly and profoundly loving myself authentically. 
We all have shadows. We all have dark and emotional sides to us. We have learned from a young age that certain sides of us need to stay in hiding...especially in public. This, my such a sad reality. Not one person I know has always felt beautifully, perfectly acceptable and happy al…
