9 Days of Glam & Beauty Food

I‘m sad that it’s already growing back so quick. I was with my friend and they were like “You can tell when hair is growing because it becomes darker” and I didn’t think of that. The idea is to buzz it every week as I’m enjoying my face more than I ever imagined and I think people are receiving me like I’ve always wanted them to. I’m actually modest as fuck in person. I’d rather be in the background and I’d rather not pay attention to anyone in the hopes they will ignore me... that’s never the case though, especially upon walking around like Mette (from N.E.R.D’s Lemon). Anyway, it’s St Patrick’s Day and I’m staying indoors, doing laundry and making sure I’m up-to-date on my entries. I’ve been totally influenced by the likes of a certain Earth “sign” who is helping me in all the ways I’ve truly needed. I’m surprised at the fact that I’m allowing myself to be shared as far as my time and presence goes. I’ve been extremely involved in work, the city and getting close to those who want to know me.  I’ve noticed that the more I stay, the more everything in my life prospers.

I’m so ready to get a brain transplant that removes people from my long term memory because at this point, it only makes sense. I’ve been doing so well and on my own, I hope nobody is too worried. I’m just becoming more and more like me with no outside influence and control. I do not miss reporting to people about everything I do, even what I’m eating or what my latest skincare is. Like, I talk about all that online, anyway. In a nutshell, it’s all the same but better. I had lunch with my best friend today and even that set me in a different tone. I love her and miss her but, I’m so disconnected and it’s hard to be myself around people who use to know me. I think I kinda understand why men run away or hide. I get it. The need to reinvent oneself. Though there’s a difference in running and just being okay with yourself and where you’re at. That’s what I am. I know that if I see people from my past, I’d have the strength to handle it all with grace. I know this because today was that day. I’m just so random, though. Also, I hate wearing bras like, oh my god. I’ve not worn a bra since? Ugh. The only exception I’ll make is for a lace or fabric bralette; nothing with unnecessary padding and wire. Funny enough, my day attire is fucking tacky. I really think I’m watching too much Friends.

I really get into the day around noon unless I'm up before the sun but it's like the lighting is prettiest as the day goes on after lunch and I tend to gain more energy - by 6 o'clock, I want to kick it with somebody or simply make new friends. Take note, girls!

Outfit of the day and makeup and hair and everything that makes me, me. Not that it's anybody's concern but, I've finally learned to zone out and be about my own world again. This is precisely how I was before I knew heartbreak and before I was acknowledged as new money. I am square one yet also completely on top!

Dirty Vibe: Quintess Makeup

When I am seen out and around taking selfies, it's because I'm a blog and a model. That being said, here's back to back entries because I'm feeling colorful, young, vibrant, willing enough to share and exploit myself some more. Plus, this is the look I did using the Ace Beaute Quintessential Eyeshadow Palette and bit, I killed it.

Won Up

There's so much to do! Like, I'm full from the apple-cranberry-walnut salad I just ate and probably all the random shit I've been stress eating anyway because of the real transformations happening for me now. It's wild.

I was upstate with some friends and exploited myself which will consist of all the images in this blog entry but, over the course of my stay, I realized Instagram blacklisted my account for all the hash tagging and whatever fuckshit reasonable. It's sad! Then again, I'm kind of relieved I'm not so concerned about popularity anymore.

I can take my time and see everything finally for what it is. :)

Obsession

Long story short, I'm really good at doing my own makeup and I'm not doing yours. Here is the latest breakdown on my most recent selfie where the foundation is clean and matte, eyes are striking, lips are pouty and highlight is magical.

Review Ultimate glow treatment!

IMG_0323.JPG

The secret weapon behind my glowing skin and flawless makeup is this facial spa in a jar, recently purchased from Sephora. It's pricy and worth it; to me, the best investment is good skincare. I give it 5 stars. It's magic. It's one of those products where I feel the reaction as soon as it touches my face. I use it every 3 days or so and it works with my current regime. It's an explosive treatment, the impact is visible and has everyone talking. I also post "no makeup" videos and pictures to my social media often, it's to show that whatever I do is working for me and honestly, makes me love the skin I'm in even more!

Apricot Makeup

I posted this makeup on my Instagram and although I wasn't asked about what I used, I'm blogging an entry incase I personally forget or want to recreate it. I don't know why it seems like everything is my go-to a lot lately but, whatever. My thought process is that I've found my new favorite makeup look for when everything else is disheveled and imperfect. In other words, I don't feel like keeping it all on point 24/7 so, I'm overcompensating in the department of cosmetics. The products I use are full proof but, it's the technique I've become accustom to that has worked every time and I get compliments too, which is always nice! Alright, contrary to the renowned highlight, I go for a matte foundation finish along with a matte cheek color. It sounds a little boring but then, I use highlight on the tip of the nose and I dab diamond powder in the tear duct area for fun! I shape the brows, apply full body feline lashes and finish the look with a pouty lip. That's it. Shame shame shame.
