I know it seems daunting trying to find Cruelty-Free or vegan skincare that not only works, but is accessible and inexpensive. I know that SOUNDS tough, but it's actually incredibly easy. My skin has always been problematic, and being a redhead I would rather DIE than be seen without makeup (i.e. with my blonde lashes & brows, redness, translucent skin, freckles, irritation, etc). It was always ridiculously dry and patchy, and now my skin still isn't the best... but it's monumentally better than it's ever been! I've been vegetarian for over 12 years and vegan (off and on for 4 years, but STRICT vegan since last summer. That's when I noticed my skin clearing, softening, and breathing. Your skin absorbs nutrients from the inside out, so why wouldn't you want to eat healthier and have your skin be a testament to that? Besides my diet I have used these lifesaving products here and there: (not sponsored, this is all very personal and my own experience) .

I keep having dreams of people dying. This is the third night in a row. 🤔 And they aren't strangers. But people I've known for a decade or more. They all go as a result of an illness or sudden circumstance. It's so vivid and real I'm compelled to just double check in the morning. Yep, they are still here. ẠŁłVẸ
My morning brain goes back to that one word. ✨ẠŁłVẸ✨The wheels turn as I try and understand my dreams. So, you're hear on Earth. Living, breathing, consuming, creating. But are you really ẠŁłVẸ? Are you seizing the day? Leading with 💗love💗? Growing. Learning. Truly ŁłVł₦Ġ Or are you just going through the motions?
If you would have asked me a few months ago...I would have a different answer than today. I was depressed, angry, bitter, and just dragging through each day. 😬 My creativity was gone. My confidence non-existent. And I reached out to drag everyone down around me. 🙈
We don't get to decide how long we're here. However, we do get to decide what we do with our time. Finally, I 🛑STOPPED🛑 making excuses and started making changes. I used coaching as a platform to propel myself out of a hole. A means to build a positive life. To live big every single day. Or, try my best!
I guess the whole point of my rant is just simply this: STOP saying tomorrow, next week, next year, some day. And start doing YOU now! Because, you don't know what time you have left. K? 😘
