Freer Than Kanye (No Makeup, Filter or Bra = Bday Tradition)

Hey Guys! I’m celebrating not only just my day of birth but all the life lessons that I have accumulated over the years. Good or bad… all my experiences have made me who I am today. I’m very happy to be able to look in the mirror and give myself eye contact and a smile while counting my blessings. I have had to be mentally and spiritually strong most of my life and the one thing I always come back to is KINDNESS. Whether it being towards yourself or others, “kindness is magic”. I learned that from Ricky Gervais and his show/character Derek. It’s soooo gooood and at times heartbreaking – but that’s life!


Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in LOVE LIBERTY

This shade is one of her longer lasting lipsticks. The color payoff is spot on due to it being filled with pink/rose and berry colorations. The only thing that I am not a huge fan of is having to take off the hue completely in order to refresh/reapply. This hue is named after the model Liberty Ross. It’s apart of the Matte Revolution Formula and it’s neither drying or stiff on the lips. I love the hue due to it being simultaneously dramatic and feminine.


-Longer Lasting

-Beautiful Hue that can be worn for a perfect balance of drama and femininity

-Feels like velvet on the lips


-It feathers and fades with time under 2 hours

-You have to take it off completely before you reapply

-Settles in the cracks of your lips when wearing this for a few hours

Lessons at a Funeral

I remember going to my Great Uncle’s Funeral and seeing how loved he was. The service lasted a few hours due to a line of people (coming from all over) wanting to vocally express their love for him. It was really a lesson on humanity and what you give is what you get when it comes to relationships. I wrote a Eulogy for him and read it in front of my whole family. There was one point where I almost lost it. I stopped breathing to control my tears and continued to push forward with my writing. My Uncle was such a cool dude and I thought we had more time – you never really do I guess. He was such a kind and giving guy. He had been through a lot in his life and had never lost the light in his blue/gray eyes. I loved that about him.

I am at the point in my life where I am processing all my past and present human interactions and viewing them as illuminating lessons.  While doing this I reflect on how my character has progressed and what am I going to do with all this illumination. My Uncle Joseph would like that.IMG_26787D239D56-1

Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Formula in the hue Bond Girl w/ special guest: Walk of Shame

A lovely Subscriber asked me to review Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick in the hue Bond Girl. I jumped at the chance. I really love helping people make a more informed decision in their product purchasing experience. Especially, since lipstick purchasing can be a rather difficult one when ordering online. In this video, I also mix in the Matte Revolution Lipstick Walk of Shame right on top of Bond Girl. My mother taught me three things about lipstick:

  1. Do not be afraid to mix colors together
  2. Make sure it’s not a final sale situation when purchasing a lipstick
  3. See what it looks like in outdoor lighting

I love David Bowie and Ilia Lip Conditioner in the shade Blossom Lady


I love handmade ceramics, doggies, old school Bowie, and Blossom Lady Lip Conditioner by Ilia. It’s a great everyday lip conditioning hue. You need to do a lip scrub first before you sport this due to your dry patches easily showing up with this formulation. It also needs to be reapplied hourly: It fades with talking, lip rubbing, and eating. But it has a great soft muted pink color that can stand up on its own. It can also be mixed with other colors. Examples: a soft metallic shimmery lipgloss, other Ilia Lip hues, etc.

There’s no perfume in the formula, so it has a (not too loud) natural scent. And it has 100% natural dye and it’s 85% organic. I’ve purchased this product 2x so far and I’m still happy with it. Oh, and you can put it on your cheeks for a more youthful flush.

Women Lack Upper Body Strength

I’ve heard more than a few times in my life that women were naturally weaker than men when it came to upper body strength. This information gave me the excuse of not trying harder when it came to strengthening my upper body. BIG MISTAKE. I stopped listening to that crap and started really pushing myself when it came to push-ups, pull-ups and rope climbs. I even joined a Pole Class.

Unsolicited Advice: Don’t let the archaic wording or the opinion of others get in your way. My push ups are not the best but I have developed enough upper body strength to climb up a metal pole and half way up my gym’s climbing rope. I have not made it all the way up to the top yet–but soon! If someone tells you that you can not do something, or the outcome of your work is predetermined, get the hell away from them! Do not limit yourself. Also, push yourself when the time is right for you! Do not be afraid –you got this!
