You are enough; what does being enough really mean. First and foremost being "enough" is not a judgement or destination. It doesn't mean you've reached the finish line and won the label "enough". It doesn't mean that you are absolutely perfect and there is no need for further growth, change or knowledge. Being enough is simply and honestly you!
Becoming enough is developed through self-discovery. When you come to the realization that you don't need to be anyone or anything else, you don't have to have it all together, you don't have to be solely dependent on self, you have insecurities and weakness like everybody else. You then become free to be yourself, as is and where you are. Can I just say how great it feels to fully accept who you are and stand in your truth? It doesn't mean that you are settling and will no longer change the things in your life and in your power that need to be changed in order to elevate yourself; it simply means you are being honest with yourself and acknowledging who you truly are at this very moment; without the need to prove yourself. Trying to be someone or something you are not is exhausting and only hinders you from getting to know the real you that deserves to be seen and loved. When you know you are enough, you know your worth and no imperfections or difficulties will reflect on that because you are who you are.
You are Enough
God doesn't make mistakes; you are who you are in this very moment. Through the ups and downs, your strengths and weaknesses, brokenness, mess and beautiful times; all you have to be is you, showing up for yourself and your life one day at a time; growing and embodying the women you were meant to be.
It's 2019! New Year and a evolving me; Over the year I have begun healing past hurt and pain, recognizing trigger points, being more honest with myself, coming to terms with things I need to change and recognizing a need for a deeper self-love. I look forward to continuing my journey into the New Year and empowering you to connect with your inner Goddess.

As I write this blog post my two year old daughter is climbing up my legs crying, to take over the computer. Let’s face it ladies, we are busy. As mothers, wives, partners, working women, entrepreneurs, etc., our responsibilities are endless and our to-do lists are long. Take it from a single mom of three and business woman; I know how hectic life can get. We give and give to everyone and everything, leaving ourselves for last, if at all! This is clearly not healthy and not being kind to ourselves.
Self-care is a great way to relieve stress, balance and rejuvenate. When we take care of ourselves we are better equipped to take care of the people in our lives, perform better at work and with everyday tasks and have a more balanced, stress free life. It is a great benefit for your physical, mental/emotional and spiritual health.
We would all love for our makeup to have super powers and last for eternity; but in reality, after 4-6 hours you may just need a light touch up. This is especially the case if you haven't prepped your skin correctly before makeup application and if you have oily skin. With proper preparation and setting of your makeup, you could go as long as 8-10 hours without needing a touch up! Check out my pro makeup tips on how to prep, set and forget.
A common concern with multiple makeup touch ups throughout the day is your makeup beginning to look caked on or darker/lighter than your complexion. This can happen because of incorrect technique and products being used during touch up.
Generally, you want to have touch up sheets or Kleenex available to remove excess oil first; then set your makeup with a finely milled, translucent powder. Watch the video below for proper technique, application and additional information and tips on how to correctly touch up your makeup. If you follow these steps, I guarantee you will not need to touch up your makeup more than once for the day!

Hello beauties! My daughter and I had the opportunity to attend the Chatters Curl Party with DevaCurl last Sunday; and It was fantastic!
This was an event to celebrate curly, wavy coily hair and share information on how to best care for your natural curls.
Curl experts where on site to educate and demonstrate techniques to help your curls stay hydrated, defined, healthy and looking oh so good, using Devacurl products. I was one of the lucky chosen ones to have a complete hair transformation! I was washed, conditioned and styled using Devacurl products for super curly hair.
Check out the video below to see my full hair makeover and all the goodies, prizes and products Chatters had to offer.

In studio vs on location beauty services and why the cost gap.
So you have an amazing event to attend and you want to look your absolute best. You want that red carpet special and the convenience of makeup and hair services in the comfort of your home, hotel or place of venue; but you don't want to pay the cost that comes with it. Girl I get it! Convenience is not cheap, and I am going to share with you some factors that contribute to the cost of on location beauty services. Including but not limited to the following:
Are you a hair oil lover like me? Hair oils are one of my favourite products to use. They are lightweight, packed with vital ingredients to promote healthy hair and adds lots of shine to your mane.
I can always count on finding gems, when I go shopping at Winners; one of my favourite apparel stores; that also carries health and beauty products. It is a great way to discover and try out new products such as the Luseta Argan Oil hair repair serum.
Are you a people pleasure?
A People Pleaser is one of the nicest and most helpful people you know. They never say “no.” You can always count on them for a favor. In fact, they spend a great deal of time doing things for other people.
People Pleasing; a good or a bad thing?
I was once a big time people pleaser and let me say this, there is nothing wrong with pleasing someone, making someone happy and helping someone. People pleasing becomes a problem when it is at the expense of your own happiness, when it begins to drain and suck the energy out of your life, when it starts to feel like a burden and your life all of a sudden revolves around it. People start to use you and walk all over you. If this sounds like you, then you probably are a people pleaser and you are probably wondering how to stop it.
So, I was lucky enough to receive a pair of glasses from a company called Firmoo! They are an online eyeglasses company that provide both prescription and non-prescription glasses. First off, there are thousands of styles to choose from, so you will be on the site for awhile, if you are picky like me. I was always weary when it came to buying eye wear online, just for the simple fact that I cannot try them on; well, Firmoo has a solution for that! You can upload a picture of yourself and see how the glasses will look on you. For even more help with choosing a pair of glasses, you can narrow down your search for glasses according to your face shape, which is very helpful when choosing the right style to fit your face.
I absolutely love the quality of the glasses, I think they are very chic, stylish and come equipped with a mini tool set for repair and in a very nice durable plastic case. Also, did I mention they are affordable, all glasses are only $39 USD! Yes, girls and boys you can look cute for less.
Firmoo is offering my lovely readers a BOGO deal!
Buy one pair and get one pair FREE! from http://bit.ly/bogofirmoglasses. Now why would you want to miss out on such a deal.es
