I used to think STUFF would make me happy.
Maybe if I just updated my wardrobe, bought a new vehicle, moved to a nicer house, I’d be happy.
And then I started studying positive, successful people.
And the underlying theme, it seemed, to all success, wasn’t STUFF, but rather feeling FULFILLED.
And it seemed the secret to feeling fulfilled, was loving how you spent your time.
So, I switched gears.
I started asking myself: does this fill me up?
And a lot of changes happened in my life.
Hard decisions were made (and still in the making) and I’ve learned a lot.
But I can finally say that I am EXACTLY where I am supposed to be on the path to where I’m going 💫
And there’s something weirdly beautiful about knowing it’ll never get easier, I’ll just keep learning more awesome lessons along the way.
Cheers to living a FULL life on your own terms.
There really isn’t anything quite as sweet. 🍒👌🏼
We were talking about this yesterday, the girls and I, and I do strongly feel a certain type of way when it comes to the word “assistant” in our field of work. Let’s just say, I like to see new stylists as “Growing🌱Artists” instead. From my own personal experience starting out, I heard and read things like “you have to earn your chair” or “pay your dues” ..um, sorry(not sorry) but I did that by completing 1600hours of beauty school, which was rough😑, and passing state board first try despite the embarrassing experience I had😳🤭. (Funny story😏.) It’s just so hard for new excited artists to enter this field especially with no experience and to only be discouraged because they’re being treated like the Salon’s “slave” or the “help” their first year or even just a few months before they decide, this isn’t for them or they’d rather find a desk job. I’ve heard many stories and mines included, it’s sad. Which is part of the reason why I started my own. To provide a space for artists like myself who truly want to be in this field and provide a service unlike any other profession or business. We make people look and feel beautiful and we do it together with a group of people who have the same mission. It’s all about our clients. Our clients may not know the struggles we’ve been through to get behind the chair in which they sit and get pampered in, but we made it behind that chair! To be of service. To cater, pamper and beautify. And I’m blessed to be able to do what I love, what I believe I was created to do, with the people that I work with and provide a space for us artists to really blossom together. 🌸 I’ve always believed there’s a greater purpose in all of us, in all of life. My purpose is to be there for those who needed the same beginning I needed. I’m blessed to be able to help and watch artists grow. 🌳

#factsaboutme 04/10 at 1.92m (6.3") x 120kg (265lbs) I'm no small man. I've been given all your labels... I have walked many years ashamed of those labels you thought I needed... Because you believed a box could tick me. I've been call all your names... I've felt you words when then slit my soul... I survived... But I'm am still me... I've grown proud of my skin. I am no GQ or size 2... And I am good with that. Because the one thing you never asked... You never thought of... Am I Happy. Are you? I'm happy with my skin. My story is written in every stretch mark, spoken every scar, my truth lay stretched out over my skin like the constellations of my freckles and spots. I don't care about your idea of what my story should look like. Today I am good. Today I am proud. #happy#loveyourdifference#loveyourskin#findyourownhappy#beyourownsuperhero#beproudofyourdifferent#betrue#bethechange#lifeisbeautiful#youareenough#imhappy#feelingblessed

El otro día mi pareja me dijo:”es que tú sientes pasión por la organización (y orden! esa parte no le hace tanta gracia😂😉jajaja!)”, y pensé pues claro! 💁🏽♀️
Es poner claridad a la oscuridad💡, es trazar ese camino en medio de la niebla mental para ver hacia donde debo ir 🚶🏾♀️, es levantarme con energía a la mañana porque tengo un propósito claro que me llena de ilusión 💪🏼💛!
En definitiva, es poder plasmar lo mental en material, y que satisfacción madre mía👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼!

Its a Friday,we are getting bored at Home 🙄🙄,and my flicking minded Man, comes up with an Idea that we will go for Restaurant hopping, till I could decide if I should take my camera or something or If I should Vlog, he was all dressed up.So, being on a wife duty, I followed him and our stop was Karama,Dubai as you get a lot of different cuisine restaurant here to try out 🤩🤩.Frankly, am a type of girl, who can even feel full for the day if I had 2 samosas in the evening and same happened on that #friday Just after 6 golgappas and a Samosa pav I was done for the night 🙈🙈.Looking around,I found this shop named @dessicuppadubai 🍹🍹for something to Drink and as soon as I entered it was a Heaven for a Girl like me who can die for any kind of milkshakes,fruitjuices and other dessert.As said earlier I was already stuffed I just went for a fruit mix smoothie and trust me it was worth every fill I paid.That day on I decided to make it my Favourite spot for any shake or Dessert cravings and also being a very economical on pocket, I was just a Fan of it.SWIPE to check the Menu..
