BEAUTY NEWS: LADY GAGA ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL BEAUTY LINE

View this post on Instagram

When I was young, I never felt beautiful. And as I struggled to find a sense of both inner and outer beauty, I discovered the power of makeup. I remember watching my mother put her makeup on every morning, basking in the glow of her power to put on her bravest face as the hard working woman she was. I then began to experiment with makeup as a way to make my dreams of being as strong as my mother become true. It was then that I invented Lady Gaga. I found the superhero within me by looking in the mirror and seeing who I wanted to be. Sometimes beauty doesn't come naturally from within. But I'm so grateful that makeup inspired a bravery in me I didn't know I had. I've come to accept that I discovered my beauty by having the ability to invent myself and transform. They said I was just weird, but really, I was just Born This Way. Love, Lady Gaga

WCW: CHLOE + HALLE BAILEY

This week’s WCWs are singers and sisters Chloe and Halle. They looked stunning at The Lion King premiere in LA last night.

Halle is slated to be the next Little Mermaid and I am so excited for my daughter to see a little a girl that looks like her as a Disney princess that she adores (my daughter is obsessed with Ariel and singing the songs from the movie). Chloe and Halle have amazing voices, hello Queen Bey discovered them…so I cannot wait to hear the songs and see the live-action production. #blackgirmagic at its finest!

BEYONCE + BLUE IVY SHOW UP & SHOW-OUT DRIPPING IN DIAMONDS AT THE LION KING PREMIERE

One of my favorite childhood movies premiered last night in LA and The Queen came to slayyyyy. Queen Bey showed up and showed-out with daughter Blue Ivy dripping in diamonds! Beyonce wore an Alexander McQueen crystal chandelier-embroidered tuxedo dress, crystal jewels, and an embroidered box clutch. Blue Ivy matched her gorgeous mom in a tuxedo dress.

Beyonce voices Nala in The Lion King which premieres on July 19th.

 

5 MANTRAS I SAY DAILY FOR MY BEST SELF EVER

I like to believe I have the highest form of self esteem but every woman has days when she doesn’t feel her best – you could’ve had a bad night’s sleep or your aunt flow could be visiting or a stranger could’ve said something not-so-pleasant and pissed you off. To go even deeper, you may have been bullied growing up or experienced your first break-up (friend or significant other) and  may be looking for a boost in the way you feel.  I started writing mantras on sticky notes and hanging them next to my mirror when I experienced a year of hardships.

A mantra is a positive statement or slogan that is repeated frequently. The more positive statements you hear and say out loud, the better your energy and thoughts become. After my year of hardships,  I felt so low and unwanted but then I read an article about your thoughts and the things you say to yourself everyday and how that affects your everyday mood and healing process.

Here are the 5 Mantras I say every morning while doing my hair and makeup:

“I am Enough”

“I am open and receptive to all good”

“I trust that I, and only I, know what’s best for me”

“I am doing the best I can with what I have everyday”

” I am a beautiful work in progress”

Saying these has brought my positive energy back and I hope they can help you out when you’re not feeling so hot.
