I’m Lena born and raised in Germany living on the east coast, married to my University sweetheart and mama to my two wonderful little kids.
Thanks so much for visiting my account and hanging out with me here. I wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself and tell you about “my reasons why” I became a lipstick mama💄and joined the Senegence family.
I had seen LipSense for quite some time during their boom in 2017 and got very curious. Always loved wearing makeup but being a mom to two little babies I’ve never worn any lipstick because I didn’t want to smear my kisses all over their precious little faces.
From the very 1st LipSense I cracked open (Blue-Red😍) I was completely hooked. No more 💄💋 on my hubby, in my kids faces or on my coffee cup. It was life changing and kinda magic let me tell you that!
I became an independent beauty consultant for SeneGence International featuring long lasting, anti-aging makeup and skincare that is vegan, cruelty free, non GMO, and lead/wax/gluten free. We are most known for our long wear (4-18 hour) liquid lipstick, LipSense, which is smudge proof, kissable and waterproof. Apply once and be done!! SeneGence makeup is the perfect solution for business women and the busy #momlife 🙌🏼 Building my own business has been so much fun since I started and I can’t wait what the future has in store for me and my family.
I am so excited that you are here! Please take a look around, make your wishlist of superior make up and/or anti-aging skincare and reach out to me if you have any questions on how to buy products or even on how to join my wonderful team and get started in this💄biz - I am here to help. 🤗

#fridayfeelings (Let the past die.) It’s bizarre to hear of my mom being forced out of the house she lived in since 1999. We moved there when I was just a tiny kid. Now, to know that I will have no connection at all to it is sort of a strange feeling. I have gotten calls about stuff of mine that’s still there from my childhood asking me to throw it away or what to do with it. It’s strange to be at a point in my life to finally let it go....I have no happy memories there except for occasionally playing with friends. To understand the hidden horrors and pain I experienced in that house and to move on from it was one thing, however I always knew there was some connection between myself and that place. Now to see it finally go, to completely be done with that part of my life and to have no connection at all with my biological father is a strange but freeing experience. There are some things it is far better to just let go. Don’t allow yourself to linger in the darkness of the past in any form. It’s weird, it’s sad, it’s sentimental but all I can focus on is the future. Making sure my home, my family and my kids experience life and love in such an abundant way, that the shadows of the past drift away into nothing but the spark that started the flame of a far greater story! #letthepastdie#movingout#memories#overcomedarkness#bethespark#thestorycontinues#survivor#abusesurvivor#youcangetthroughthis#thereismore#holdontothegood#oklahomacity#movingout#movingup#soulties#spiritualbattles#selfhelp#overcomers#fightersagainstchildabuse#wemadeitout#lifeisgood
I will forever be thankful for that message from a random chick on Instagram. Little did she know, she helped me change my life. 🖤 Those seemingly insignificant moments can sure add up to some big life changing things. Don’t discount what a simple home exercise plan can do, it changed my world and helped me find my smile again. ✌🏼 #fridayfeelings
Today marks six years since 20 beautiful young children and 6 of their devoted teachers and administrators were killed by gun violence in their elementary school. In memory and honor of these victims, please show love and kindness to others. #sandyhook#FridayFeelings#aboutToday#Honorable#VividConnect
People may forget what you say, but they’ll always remember how you made them feel.
I have no idea what he said that night, but man just seeing this pic gives me all the feels!
I hope your Friday is full of all the feels too! #fbf#fridayfeels @jomohundro_rva

We must begin changes, even in small ways might make a difference. Look at scientists and others who have proven results. If we don’t start, change will be forced upon us all. I wrote a poem called: “I SEE” on my social media and my next post is a poem: “CHANGES”. #FridayFeelings#GlobalWarming#ClimateControl#Changes#DeborahAdoptantePoetry .

No-one should have no one.
Loneliness is seen by many as one of the largest health concerns we face. Why?
👤Lonely people are more likely to suffer from heart disease, dementia and depression (Valtorta et al 2016, Jame et al 2011, Cacioppo et al 2006)
👣There are 1.2 million chronically lonely older people in the UK (age uk 2016)
Half a million older people people go at least 5 or 6 days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all.
👨🏼🦳Over half of all people aged 85 or over live alone.
👧🏻👱🏽♀️👩🦰🧓🏾 A study by the Co-op reveals over 9 million people in the UK across all adult ages are either always, or often, lonely.
👶🏻👧🏼🧒🏻 A survey by Action for Children found 43% of 17 to 25 year olds who used their service had experienced problems with loneliness and 24% of parents surveyed said they too were always, or often, lonely.
Research by Sense has shown up to 50% is disabled people will be lonely on any given day.
💡So, what can you do to help?
Why not try popping in to see an elderly neighbour or look out for the new parent at the school gate or new person at work.
Encourage your children to look out for others and make sure no one in their class or in the playground is left out.
Look out for vulnerable people in your community or in your work place. We try and make sure we know which of our patients are vulnerable in terms of loneliness and make an effort to speak to them when they are in the surgery.
Simply smile at people@you encounter throughout the day and perhaps try to strike up a conversation now and again.
👫👭👬Consider becoming a befriender. You can do this either face to face or over the telephone.

What is your favourite city? Since the day I stepped foot in Santiago Chile, I have felt connected to the city by heart and soul. I always say that ‘I found my feet in Santiago’ because I believe it was traveling here where I first felt the freedom to be me. I love that @mapiful created this wonderful memento for me, so that I can keep connected with Santiago. They create posters of anywhere in the world and I am sure some of you are connected to a certain city just like me. Id love to know where and why? *
Ps. Mapiful makes for a great Christmas presents
Things you are not responsible for:
Other people’s opinions & judgements of you.
When & how the Universe decides to troll you.
Making other people feel better about your life’s choices.
Playing small so others can play big.
I talk about this a lot— but I am a firm believer in doing your best to show up as your most true self, everyday.
Sometimes that means you’re gonna make other people feel uncomfortable, sometimes that means being judged, sometimes that means the Universe is gonna throw you some shit and see how you choose to handle it.
You are not responsible for the how the World decides to react to you being your best and most authentic self.
So you just keep showing up and do you with a little kindness and compassion and understanding in your heart. #mindset#fridayfeelings#doyou
