THE dress is out on the town (Youtube fam knows what’s up). This has been the most magical day with @bareminerals 🌱 I played with lots of farm animals (my dream) and then celebrated for the very last time with the BareMinerals fam. Today we were asked to fill out a sheet “I am FULL OF ____ and FREE OF ____”. I said “I am full of LOVE and free of BULLSHIT” 🤷🏻♀️ now it’s your turn: what are you full of and free of? #powerofgood#cleanbeauty
I always make sure I look my best in my pictures, but it’s definitely an adventure getting there. There’s #NoSugarCoating the fact that it takes work to take the perfect shot, but luckily this rooftop makes the perfect setting for a photoshoot before hosting a girls night happy hour with @absolutvodka_us Cocktails! 👯♀️🍸🎉 #Ad
Today I spent the day learning about The Power of Good Fund by @bareminerals . The fund is to help empower women through mentorship and educational opportunities. In light of that, I ended with a quick mentor sesh with @flow_.xx , who aspires to be a journalist. I no longer write for publications but we were able to have a great conversation about ways she can establish herself and find her path using the ever-growing industry of social media. @propergrahamr@keyairakelly , i think y’all would be great mentors for Flow if she ends up making her way to New York. I never had a mentor bc up until recently I didn’t really know what I wanted to do so I just learned through my mistakes and grew from that. Did any of you have mentors? #powerofgood#cleanbeauty
So today I did laundry, did my makeup, had two meetings, shot a video, packed, walked the dogs, answered emails, took off my makeup, did my pre-flight skincare routine (needs to be mentioned), boarded a flight to London AND voted.
The first time I voted was for Obama 10 years ago. I didn’t always believe that my voting voice mattered but I always voted bc I would rather put my two cents in then do nothing and complain. In fact in grad school I told my print professor that I didn’t care about politics because I didn’t think my vote mattered. But then guess what? My rights as a woman started being stripped away by old white men. The environment started crumbling (literally) bc the people in charge value profit over our futures. And public school teachers started to leave the jobs they loved bc they couldn’t afford to live (and pay off their student loans). So ya, that’s why I vote. Why do you? #ivoted
I spent the morning with animal testing SURVIVORS at the @rescuefreedomproject sanctuary. This is Nana. Nana was rescued from animal testing and the meat trade in China. Beagles are the most used dogs for animal testing because they are a good size, very docile and trusting. Also, once they are no longer needed for testing, dogs are then sold into the meat trade. I also got to hang out with bunnies, chickens and two goats (watch my stories). I didn’t understand the animal testing industry until I adopted Levi and I’ve never met testing survivors in person so today was really special. Testing on animals is 100% unnecessary so I choose to support brands that are 100% cruelty free (vs being cruelty free in America but testing on animals “when required by law”, usually when they expand into China). Thanks to Rescue Freedom Project for an amazing And and please head over to @rescuefreedomproject to see what you can do and donate to the cause 🐶🐱🐭🐭🐹🐰
*GIVEAWAY* The balcony has become my favorite area in the house. When you work from home (and work 24/7) a cozy place outside is exactly what I needed not only as an outdoor office but a place where I can de-stress with the dogs. #MuradPartner Did you know that stress can show up on our skin as dehydration, roughness and deep expression lines? While the balcony has becoming my relaxing oasis, the @muradskincare#revitalixir serum has helped calm and rehydrate my skin from all the stress I've been putting it through lately.

Taking the dogs out on the town with me means I need to be prepared: portable water bowl, treats, baggies and comfortable shoes. You don't know pain until you're chasing around two dogs in heels. NO THANKS. I choose @puma.@pumawomen@six02#ad#PumaWoman
I seriously don’t know why I go every year, but spent Halloween at @horrornights at @unistudios 🎃 a couple things I learned this year: the express passes are BAE. Instead of waiting in line for 75 minutes, you’re in and out of the attraction in 10 - worth the upgrade. In a haunted maze, if you put yourself in the middle of a group of people, it’s not as scary bc they get attacked not you. Similarly, if you go with someone who is more of a scaredy cat than you (ie. @scott4syth), all scary people will focus their attention onto them. Also, if a scary person is about to attack you with a chainsaw, all you have to do is act crazy and they’ll leave you alone. Crazy don’t mess with crazy. Ok, that’s all. #universalhhn is open for a few more days if you’d like to test out my theory.
Straight hair, curly hair, dry hair, colored hair - I've seen it all. I've put my hair through so much, I'm surprised it still loves me enough to stay on my head! I find that figuring out a haircare routine is crucial for keeping the health of your hair. Especially as the temperatures drop, we don't want to get caught scrambling to transition our beauty routine. During the fall and winter months, I like to use the @OvationHair because it helps reduce breakage and the treatment keeps my hair yummy and moisturized. If you want to test it out, use my code Aja10 for 10% off! #ad#OvationHair
