This is a real impromptu post! I have been taking it easy this past week n’ creating things on my end hence the lack in posting. N e who, my interest in SPX makeup has peaked…shall I say… curiosity killed the cat…Yes…OK! I decided to play around in some face paint n’ came up with this docile kitty LOL… For my first attempt doing SPX makeup I think I did pretty darn good! I may do a SPX pic once a week!
I was headed to do makeup for a client then after zoom to do makeup for the Opera! I wanted to create a sultry look that accentuated my brown eyes. I recently just got one of my fav Nars eye shadows in the shade New York (See the haul video here) n’ I had to create a look using it! I also was sent some amazing lashes from ESQIDO in Viola Lash that I was yearning to try on! I hope you enjoy the tutorial. Leave your request for looks in the comments on here or YT…Oh please sub to my new channel! (Here—>Cmichellestyles)
My trip to cancun was right on time. I needed a get-a-way. I needed some rest n’ relaxation. I needed some peace n’ tranquility. I needed to be around good people and love. Yet most importantly, I needed restoration.
(Beach Bummin’ It In Cancun, LOL)
There is nothing like going away for a while to get a new perspective. To breathe in some fresh air, sit back, lay on the beach (I was a total beach bum), meditate, n’ reflect. That my friends, is exactly what I did. I made some decisions, engaged in amazing…thought provoking conversations, surrounded myself with talented like-minded individuals that had one purpose…to be happy.
(Laguna Beach Sunset)
Happiness is a choice I once read. I choose to be happy. I choose to surround myself with things that do nothing but make ME happy and I have enough sense to leave when I see that is not happening. After Cancun I flew to Cali, had cocktails on a roof top in Laguna Beach to meet this wonderful couple. They were celebrating there two year anniversary and the man asked me: “Do you love your life?” “Yes”I replied shockingly I did not expect him to ask me those questions. “Do you love the people in it?” “Yes”, I replied. “Do you love your peace?” “Yes”, I replied. “Then you would be crazy to let anything mess that up, don’t let anything in your circle that can change that.”
I sat and pondered in the sunset. I thought about a lot of things…one being, I love sunsets lol. The second thought was that he was right. Why do we allow things in our life to alter our happiness? Sometimes it is easier said than done but why allow that thing, person, or situation to have power over you? What are you hoping to gain out of that situation? Maybe that things will change? Idk…maybe they will, but the couple encouraged me to make a “VETO” list. Make a list of things (or a vision board) of the things you want in life, the characteristics/qualities in a partner, n’ any other life goals or aspirations. I am still working on my list.
Life is too short to be unhappy, life is too short to settle. Why settle? Don’t settle for a mediocre job, a mediocre living, or a mediocre relationship. God says we are to live abundantly n’ from this trip I have seen more of the world n’ experienced his splendor…Be Happy, Never Settle, Live Abundantly.
My bff n’ I planed to have a relaxing day by going to yoga, getting our nails done, n’ going out to lunch…Just watch the video to see how our day REALLY turned out! None the less, I was spending time with my bff n’ that’s all that matters lol! *Besos*
