Yep, it's that time of the year again. Where America's commercialism shows its' ass and tells us to buy everything because of some made up pagan holiday. We know, we get it, we are used to it. While Valentine's Day has its perks (insert 50% off chocolate the day after), it leaves a lot of people disgruntled due to not feeling the love. Guess what you can and you should FEEL THE LOVE EVERYDAY. Here are a few tips on how I celebrate love 365, give or take a few according to my cycle.
I am a huge advocate for making room for new things. You can't allow more of anything into your life if your cluttering it with things that aren't serving you.
You can apply this to your makeup bag as well. As the holidays approach the people who love you will be getting you skincare & makeup products (fingers crossed). That means you need to let go of those products that aren't serving you anymore! Take a look over this list and make room for your new goodies that are on the way!
Keep in mind these will vary. Especially if you use more natural products that have little to no preservatives. This is just a reference. Always double check your packaging!

It is no big secret. I have been known to not be that fond of the younger generation.
I am just not a kid person. Things have been changing in the past few months though, as I have been working closely with my girlfriend Kassy who owns a dress boutique that specializes in prom dresses. Having more high school age ladies in my Beauty Room this year I've gotten to get to know a little bit more of their lifestyles and how they think.
The real defining moment of me wanting to work with young women came when a girl & her mom, people I had NEVER met, came up to me in Michael's Craft Store (my obsession), and proceeded to tell me that they follow on me on Instagram & find me to be inspiring.
Me? Inspiring? To an 12 year old girl? The rest of that day mind was blown. I got up the next day and thought of ways I could give back to this girl and any others that I had no idea were looking up to me. I decided to take my Knowledge & Love of Beauty and teach them that! The Blossoming Beauty Workshop was born!
They say the best way to learn, is to teach. This proved to be right after hosting my first Blossoming Beauty Natural Skin Care, Makeup & Wellness Workshop. In getting ready to teach these young ladies to beautify themselves utilizing natural products I learned a lot about myself and the values I'd like to voice from an nontraditional makeup artist and esthetics viewpoint. Everything we ever need comes right from the earth. I'd like to teach more of this to the girls that get bombarded daily with products that are promising a quick fix, but in the long run harming their beautiful vessels.
Here are some highlights from the Workshop. Whitney Hames of Bad Apple Nutrition also joined us to tell us what to eat for beautiful skin!
I loved it and I can't wait to host another!
