For everyone who asked about where they could cop my kimono (which, I’ve come to realize, isn’t actually a kimono), I linked all of the product information here. 💓 http://liketk.it/2wzTf #firstname.lastname@example.org
News 👧🏻 I recently posted about the fact that I have an “announcement” to make. Throughout the past few weeks, I’ve been working on building a website, launching a YouTube channel, and starting a podcast – all of which will go live within the next two weeks. After a couple of years in this field, I finally feel connected to what my purpose is and I’ve allowed that realization to take me to where I believe I was meant to go in the first place. In the interest of full transparency, I was raised by a single mother, who never received child-support from her partner, my father, who barraged her with demands to have me aborted; so, I’ve seen the strength of a woman firsthand.
Some parts of my story are sad, some are unjust, but they’ve all given me the opportunity to love better and to put myself in other people’s skin. And so, while my content will continue to incorporate tons of fashion, lifestyle and beauty inspiration, it will also delve into deeply personal matters, including, but not limited to mental-health, spirituality, relationships, etc. For whatever reason, I don’t feel compelled to keep even my deepest, darkest secrets private. As a result, I decided to use this platform to showcase the resources and tools that I’ve acquired along the way in a quest to love and feel good about myself.
Rarely will you meet a woman who is only what she appears to be on the surface. I want you to know who I am, I want to know who you are, and I want us to help one another manifest our strongest, happiest, and most confident selves. That’s really the only thing of value that I have to offer you. http://liketk.it/2wx80 #email@example.com
I have to tell you something.
I’ve never been secretive about the fact that I often feel unfulfilled in my work as a blogger and that I question what my real purpose in pursuing this trajectory is. I’m also open about the various mental-health issues that I’ve struggled with since I was a child.
I’ve come to realize that I’ve been living hypnotically, almost as if I were under a spell. Instead of being obedient to my inner nature, I conformed to the opinions of the world. How many of us are doing the same thing? Often times, we know what our calling is, but we don’t change our thoughts to become in alignment with it.
While making an active decision to avoid mainstream and social media, to nourish my body with healthy foods for the first time ever, and to seek out people who I intrinsically recognized could help me to become re-aligned with my essence — my Grandfather, Melissa, Dr. Wayne Dyer — I’ve realized that I need to live from a place where God is in me, and I have to recognize and feel that as I carry out my purpose. In choosing to exist like this, I’m free from all limitations.
The top regret among people who know they’re dying is that they failed to live the life that they knew they were destined to; they didn’t allow themselves the freedom to listen to their internal voices.
Who I am — who we are — is not the physical body that’s here for a moment and then gone. In remaining true to my essence, I’ll be able to serve you in a much more significant, loving and effective way. The universe has made it clear to me that this is the journey of my lifetime, and it woke me from that feeling of living hypnotically. For the first time in many years, I feel like my true self again. Sending you love and light always.
Incorporating beauty into my content feels like a completely organic progression to me. As much as I love street style, I never feel passionate about wearing a look until I incorporate hair and makeup into the equation, as well; THEN, it’s complete to me, and I feel like the best version of myself. If you’ve seen my stories, you’ve realized that I spend forty percent of my life in front of a mirror on the bathroom floor with an iced venti in one hand and a beauty blender in the other. I’m obsessed with experimenting with makeup. Sometimes, I also get to work with insanely talented artists (I’m looking at you @glossipgirl), who teach me a lot about products and technique, while working to help me achieve specific looks. Most importantly, I always like to include a complete breakdown of all products used so that you can recreate the beat on your own. Let me know if you want me to continue to include makeup and skincare photos onto my feed.

When I first considered getting an injectable treatment, I was on the fence about it; I knew I had to do my due diligence, so I researched my options and read tons of different articles on the topic.
Ultimately, I made the decision that it was something that I wanted to discuss with my doctor, but in reporting about it to you, I felt comfortable utilizing @BotoxCosmetic, the only brand that’s FDA approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults. After a quick visit to @DrCindyBae, I was able to resume my normal day – it was that easy. 🙌🏼 I also joined the Brilliant Distinctions® rewards Program, which means that I’ll receive benefits on future treatments. If you’re interested in doing the same, you can become a member of the program by clicking the link in my bio or http://bit.ly/2KlklfE. #OwnYourLook
Talk to your doctor about BOTOX® Cosmetic and whether it’s right for you. There are risks with this product – the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic may spread hours to weeks after injection causing serious symptoms. Alert your doctor right away as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems or muscle weakness can be a sign of a life-threatening condition. Patients with these conditions before injection are at highest risk. Side effects may include allergic reactions, neck and injection-site pain, fatigue, and headache. Allergic reactions can include rash, welts, asthma symptoms, and dizziness. Don’t receive BOTOX® if there’s a skin infection. Tell your doctor your medical history, muscle or nerve conditions (including ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome), and medications, including botulinum toxins, as these may increase the risk of serious side effects.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is available by prescription only.
