Skincare, K Beauty, and Me

Over this past summer, I noticed a cluster of bumps on my forehead. While I found them strangely peculiar, I assumed they would disappear within a couple of days and didn't pay them much mind. After about ten days, I started freaking out.

They were still there AND they seemed to be enlarging their territory.

I, for the most part, never really had problematic skin. I was born with dark circles around my eyes and occassional deal with one hormonal pimple, which can mostly be attributed to my diet pre-menstration influencing my hormones (meaning, health eats = no Pimple Pete). Oh, and I have oily skin but that's more annoying than problematic as it soley translates to excessive shine. But - besides those three things - there hasn't been much shakeup to my skin. And, this is even considering the fact that I barely take care of outside of washing and using [any] moisturizer that I can find.

Hence, why the forehead bumps where highly problematic.

Collette Miller's Wings

Colette Miller created the Global Angel Wings Project in 2012 as a means of reminding humanity that we are the angels of this earth. There are about 52 of these murals painted all over the world and, its just so happens, that one popped up a few blocks away from my office in downtown DC.

Obviously, I had to take a picture in the classic fashion blogger pose - especially since my outfit matched.
To my DC folks, the mural is installed in the alley next to Bonfire, off of 19th St and M St.

1 novembre 2016

I like to use the month of November as a time for self-reflection and planning. My birthday/personal new year in December so November is always a great time for me to review and assess where I am and start planning for where I want to be & what I want to achieve in the upcoming year. I have so many ideas in my head in terms of travel, writing, brand expansion, creative directorship, and published publications that I hope to execute within the next year and I know none of these things can be achievable until I sit down and start making actionable plans. I'm a firm believer that if you want something out of your life, you have to be specific and intentional in orchestrating it. No one lives by accident; we all are who we are by design (whether that is active design or passive design is all on you).

ProTip: Try to make your goals as specific as possible. It's easier to achieve when you've detailed exactly what you need & want to do.
