8 Rules to Live By For An Authentic Life

Live an authentic lifeHave you ever felt like you aren’t enough?  Have you ever felt like you don’t let the real you shine through with others?  Have you ever felt like you don’t even know the type of person you are?

I would raise my hand to all of the above questions.  Truthfully, about a month ago, I thought I was having a mid-life crisis.  (Not even kidding.)

Do You Absolutely Love Lipstick Or Lipgloss?

Picture of all the Younique Lipstick colors.There are two kinds of women in the world: Lipstick lovers and Lip Gloss lovers. When I was younger, I loved playing with my mom’s lipstick, just like most little girls do. Once I got a little older and discovered lip gloss though, I never went back to lipstick.

Since then, I’ve always just been a lip gloss kind of girl. I like the way that lip gloss feels on my lips rather than the dry finish [Read more…]

Bruce Jenner Interview And The Transgender Community

Quotes from EllenIf there’s one thing that I don’t understand it’s how people can be so judgmental in this world. It honestly blows my mind that people are so close-minded, like their way is the only way for every single walk of life and nothing else is acceptable.
