I can't believe I'm finally uploading a makeup related video. Over the last few years I have wanted to start making videos, and have actually recorded many but chickened out of uploading them. I hope you enjoy this short simple video! (All products used will be in the description bar of the video)
I'm wearing mac lipstick in lady danger, it has a lot of orange under tones which is beautiful on more fair skin. Small tip when wearing lip stick in either pink or red, find one with a blue under tone to make your teeth look whiter! If you have green eyes, red is the complementary color so it will help your eyes look even more green! I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Here is a link for the lipstick http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/shaded/168/310/Products/Lips/Lipstick/Lipstick/index.tmpl
Firstly I would like to say thank you. I was overwhelmed with appreciation after my last post. Everyone that liked, shared and/or commented, you all made my year and we are still in January. For years I have wanted to start this dream of mine, having a blog that I could help inspire others, but mostly share my story and continue to write about my life with others having a chance to follow along. Although this is only the beginning I know my dream is coming true, for that I owe all of you reading this a big thank you.
After reading all the kind comments and messages you all sent me, I wrote in my journal about how happy I was, how many amazing friends and family members I have, and how grateful I am. Which led me to this post. Everyone is living their own life and in a way we are all deciding our destinies.
I learned this lesson in my sophomore year of high school (10th grade). It was in the second half of the year and I had just made the drill team at school. Some of the girls on the team thought it would be fun if we all took a ballroom class together, it seemed like a fun idea so I signed up for the class.
At the time I was struggling to know who I was. I had been dressing in the fashion of emo or some may say gothic for quite a while. I liked to wear skinny jeans (usually some crazy color) old sneakers, a graphic T-shirt or band shirt, my hair purple hair in my face, usually too much makeup and a hand covered in ink from drawing on myself. There was a boy in the balleroom class that was very friendly, kind to everyone and definitely cute may I add. A short while into the class I began to notice that he would ask me to dance when I was dressed in a way that showed I respected myself. Meaning my hair less crazy, more natural makeup, brighter more welcoming modest outfits. Being me, I decided to test my theory, I found he pretty much avoided me when I was in my emo attire and then would be friendly almost flirty with me when I was dressed more appropriatly. During this time a different boy asked me on a date/hangout, he was part of my emo crowd you could say. I was so shocked me would ask me because I had a crush on him and had for almost 3 years.
The date went down hill very quickly and soon all I wanted to do was escape. His friends were being inappropriate and I was too scared to ask them to stop. That night when I got home I thought about my goal to get married to an amazing man who would respect me, it hit me like a brick wall (and yes I sadly know exactly how that feels, we will safe that story for later). If I stayed with my same friends, doing the same things, dressing the same, I would never have a prince charming in my life. I decided right then I needed to start changing, to start bettering myself, and to start writing my story to reach the destiny that I wanted to be mine.
We all have chances in our life to reach our own destiny, personally, writing in a journal helps me to stay motivated and on track. If you are keeping a journal Good job keep it up! If not maybe give it a go. You never know how it might help you. I am so grateful I made the decision back then to become what my sister and I like to call “marriage material” (which I will probably do a post about later). Because of that decision I was able to get an amazing man to be my husband! Lastly I want to add that everyone’s life is worth so much, it needs to be written down or recorded in some way. Thank you so much for all the support!
I love fresh starts. I feel they give hope that can help you become the person you want to be. At this, the beginning of a new year, I've spent time reflecting on how far my life have come over the past few years.
For those who don't know I a terribly dark time in my life. I found my self not knowing if my living was helping or hurting those that were around me. For anyone out there that deals with depression or have felt depressed at any point in their life will understand that feeling of being completely alone. You begin to convince yourself that life for those you love will be easier and better without you.
One moment in my life that these feelings affected me was in the 8th grade. I decided that I wanted a change in my life, so instead of continuing in public school with my friends I attended a charter school, not knowing it was going to be a very hard year. I'd never felt so low in my life. Although I made new friends quite quickly and was still a member of my dance team with old friends, I felt depressed. I began to fake that I was happy around everyone I knew, while I was alone I would physically harm myself and I'd often cry myself to sleep.
Some of you may think I'm being very open, and yes I am, at this point in my life I have been able to see how sharing my story has helped others with their struggles and has also continued to help me heal and become stronger.
Everyone has at some point in life felt so low that they couldn't see the end to their misery. For me one day in 8th grade I decided there wasn't going be a relief in my life , so I felt it would be better if I ended mine (which I now understand was totally wrong). I walked into the bathroom holding my belt and began deciding what stall would be the best. God was watching over me that day and sent a girl from one of the younger grades. She walked in holding her hands out in front of her, they had clue from a class project on them, she looked up at me and told me I was pretty before skipping to the sink to wash her hands. I felt so terrible thinking that if I had gone through with my plans this little girl would have been the one to find me.
I walked to my class still in shock. When I entered the classroom the teacher sternly criticized me for being late, I apologized and took my seat. Looking around the room at my other class mates thinking about how no one knew what I almost just did and wondering how many of them had had a similar thought of ending their life.
My life is now very different, although I do struggle now and then with depression and sometimes experience anxiety over situations. I have found there is so much joy in life and in living it. I hope I can inspire you with my blog to live your life to bring you joy.
This may seem weird to share my story here on such public forum, but I want this website to be a place where I can help others. I will be sharing more of my life, doing makeup tutorials, fashion, lifestyle, and lots more. I hope you come visit and get involved. I will be trying to post at least once a week, you can also find me on Facebook and Instagram the info is in the contact page above.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you know just how much your life is worth, and find lots of joy in it.
