Summer Beauty Series- Bronzed Goddess

The Summer Beauty Series has begun! Follow my blog for updated additions to this series!

Become a bronzed goddess with these bronzer tips!

Here’s some of my favorite bronzer products. Be careful when using ones with shimmer, you may need to apply more light-handed with these as they build up quickly. I normally opt for a matte bronzer, and sometimes brush the shimmery atop for a pop of sparkle. Cream bronzers are beautiful for a bare-faced, natural pool-side look.

Note: NARS bronzer dupe= Elf

The brushes I typically use:

The smaller pointed one I use first to draw a defined line of bronzer, then go back in and blend it out with the fuller, fluffy kabuki brush. If contouring, the smaller brush comes in handy for drawing down the sides of the nose, and along the chin.

Here’s a chart to show you the correct areas to shade:

I normally shade the top and temples of my forehead, then move on to the areas under my cheekbones up to my ear. Next I shade my chin lightly, and along my jawline, and blend down both sides of my neck to ensure even coloring.

Valentines Day💗Love thyself!

We are all anticipating the day of love- some more eagerly & others may not be exactly thrilled for the reminder that they are single and don’t have a special someone to share the day with.
This doesn’t mean you have to completely avoid the holiday altogether…
Make it a day to find things about yourself to LOVE!
Dedicate this day to making yourself feel truly beautiful from the inside out.
Make a list of things that make you feel unique, remind yourself why you are worthy, and what special quirks you possess.
Dress up, experiment with your makeup, whatever makes you feel confident & unstoppable. Never forget how wonderful you truly are. I truly believe that loving someone else has to start with loving yourself! 🙆

Here’s a few ideas of how to spend your day:

-Call a friend or family member and tell them what you love about them
-List what’s so awesome about YOU
-Spend the day with a close friend or family who don’t have a companion to share the day with
-Take a walk outside and soak in the beauty of nature… There’s something very therapeutic about walking in nature and breathing fresh air
-Challenge yourself to start something you’ve been putting off- prove to yourself you CAN!
-Get dressed up, or do your makeup, take glamour shot selfies (or do this with your girl friends)
-Make an inspiration board with pictures of things that you love about yourself
-Have dinner with your girl friends

Most importantly my dear…Remember that you are loved!

The Power of Meditation

“Meditation”… This word tends to carry a controversial stigma, however I look at meditation as an alternative way of improving my mental and physical health as well as my spiritual well-being. I’m going to take you on a journey that explores the mind and consciousness.20140724-102200-37320868.jpg

There are many ways of emptying your mind, and as my blog progresses I will begin to reveal the many ways I practice this. The power you possess within your mind can help promote personal growth. Often people reach outside into the materialistic world for a way to escape the mind, however it is quite the opposite. The world will only disappoint and leave you feeling empty inside, so you should aim to explore your inner being- your mind & your soul. Attached to that is your beliefs, religion, etc.. (which I prefer to stray away from specific conversations pertaining to religion b/c I aim to respect everyone’s beliefs & quite frankly that is a touchy subject that is separate from what I would like to bring to light- I view spirituality as a very intimate area which should be approached very carefully so we will stick to the basics of your being- your body, mind, soul)… (Click “More” below to read full post)

I think it’s extremely important to know a little about me before you start religiously following my blog… cause I’m hopeful that this will serve as one of my many platforms to reach all of you pretty people out there!

I’m calling all ages, all nationalities, and all personalities… in order to serve one purpose= Female Fellowship in order to encourage personal growth & increased appreciation of all things beautiful in life. Yes I know that sounds a bit far-out, however it is simple, just think right now you are reading this blog at the same time as another woman, who is probably very different from yourself however you are both drawn to it for one reason- the subject of BEAUTY! Beauty can bring you enjoyment, meaning, & passion in life.

Beauty has served me in numerous ways throughout my life thus far, and there’s too many to mention but bottom line: IT IS IMPORTANT IN MY LIFE!
