I really hate social media, and I am so happy that I have a small following of fans and AVA fans where I can post about music and people actually care. Otherwise I wouldn’t have social media. I’m happy to have a platform where I don’t feel like every post needs to be half naked photos of my body or selfies of myself for attention and likes. People who base their self-worth on appearance and ‘likes’ are more likely to post pictures of JUST themselves on social media seeking validation. I’m not sure why people are attracted to such. Instagram likes have nothing to do with your self-worth and I just wanted to put that out there if it happens to bother anyone else. You’re just as beautiful and don’t compare yourself to anyone else, especially narcissistic people. I love you guys! #skindeep

When I think "Spring", I always seem to reach for a fuchsia lippie. 🎀💄💐 This one is the lip gloss shade 'Ravish' by @aunaturalelife
. Highly recommend these as a nontoxic alternative to conventional lipsticks. The pigmentation of these glosses (I own several now 😅) is out of this world. 🌎 Tap the photo for the rest of the makeup details. 😊

It’s officially S P R I N G!
And for me, that always means spring cleaning. I usually start in the kitchen and closets and work my way up but my bathroom always ends up falling off that long list. So I started here this time. Cleaning out my makeup bag, updating expired products, and tossing anything that I was holding on to that no longer served me. I shared my top tips on the blog today as well as all the products I’m loving for Spring 🌱 Link in profile 👉🏼
Strange how life turns out, you accept things as they are but then an almost five year old makes you question everything. I listened to an interesting conversation about COLOR. Skin color that is. My daughters friend told her she was black and that she herself was white or brown (she is from India). So my daughter decides to tell her no, you are caramel cream and I am beautifully brown. In that moment I recalled the times I didn’t correct people, you know the ones that couldn’t ‘pronounce’ your name because its different. Sometimes we just have to innocently correct people. Later on, as we are stripped from our innocence we will realize why people refuse to try to learn our names and why they refer us to black. But for now let’s assume they don’t know any better and correct them.
