Self Care Sunday




Self Care Sunday

It is the most wonderful time of the year… Can you hear Andy Williams singing in your head?  I can, but I LOVE Andy…

Right now as I type this, every store in the mall will be switching to Christmas decor and start playing the Christmas music. There are only seven shopping weekends until Christmas and three weekends until Thanksgiving. It is holiday hustle time where you have to cram even more into your already packed schedule. More cramming = more stress, more stress = sick, tired, and burnt out.

This past week has been a huge crash for me. I got sick, ended up in the hospital, and have been fighting my lupus-fibromyalgia flare. It has been extremely difficult and I’m having to go back to the beginning of my Mayo Clinic treatment plan. One of the biggest things Mayo Clinic stressed for people who manage chronic conditions is to have a good self care plan and to practice it. Since I need to redo and recommit to my self care plan, I thought it would be fun for us to do it together as a group. Each Sunday,  I will post about self care and I would love to hear about what you do to be kind to yourself. I hope we can kindly remind each other to take a breath and allow our bodies to heal and rest.

Researching for this post, I found this self care model. It is very similar to the one I received at Mayo Clinic. I have posted the link below so you can print it out.  I’m going to fill mine out and post it in the rooms I am most often- my bathroom, my studio, and on the fridge.  I encourage you to make a plan with everyone who lives with you.  Self care is important for everyone.

I would love for you to share your self care plans on my facebook page.

Happy Self Care Sunday.


The Latisse Look for Less

This post begins around this time last year. I could barely walk and every system in my body was shutting down, I wouldn’t know I had Lupus and Fibromyalgia until I would go to Mayo in October of 2013. As part of this shutting down process, I lost 50% of my hair. Every where I went, chunks would fall out. I would leave hair all over every doctor’s office and showering was like the hair-loss scene in The Craft.  #depressing My derm was feeling so bad for me that he gave me a full-sized latisse kit as a pick me up.

In August of last year, I began using Latisse and it does what it says. However, it is really expensive and I had to stop using it because I had to pay for my doctor appointments which are 2-4 times per week.( In addition to being a beauty mompreneur, I’m also a professional patient. 😉 ) I started to miss my Latisse lashes and I occasionally put the little bit I have left of the last bottle on when I’m having a bad day.

However, my luck changed when one of my sunless clients gave me a sample of the Younique 3D Lashes. I’m super picky about mascara because of all that I use it for and it is the one product that I will wear everyday no matter what. Also, with Lupus and Fibromyalgia, I have become much more sensitive to products. Put that all together and add 100+ degrees of a Texas summer and most products fall flat. I have had to change out a good portion of my kit because products that worked in Chicago, get burnt alive in the Texas sun. #makeupartistproblems

I have been using the Younique 3D Lashes for over a week now and it is really impressive product. The packaging is luxe and the method of application is easy as well. It takes a couple of tries to figure out what works best for your lash shape, but once you figure it out you are ready to get Latisse Lashes in less than 2 minutes and for only $29. Here is my before and after. I took it on my iPhone so I’m sorry it isn’t HD quality.


Wow right! I really loved this product, the only negatives I  have are that it isn’t waterproof, necessary for shooting, and I’m still trying to figure out how to be able to apply it with disposable mascara wands so I can use it on clients. #makeupartistproblems 

However, for everyday it is perfect. The more you improve your technique, you can take it from the Latisse look to more of a lash extension look, saving yourself even more dinero.

Here are a couple of tips I have come up with thus far.

-Skip the mascara base coat and just use the 3D Lash products.

-Do one eye at a time. The product dries fast. Doing one eye at a time prevents clumps.

-Use a MAC 205 Mascara Fan Brush to help separate lashes and remove clumps.

-Tap the fiber lash wand to loosen any big clumps of fibers before applying. In the beginning, there is more of a fiber build up on the wand, but after using the product more it evens out.
