#sometimes celebrations should look like this.. Full #muttonleg belonging to a Kochi bhanra (bong word, don't rake your brains) cooked with veggies in a one pot meal.. wait oh wait, was it celebration or was it #freezercleaning ? Reasons can be many, but the dish was super duper #awesome . All I did was get a simple masala made on a stove top and then I stir fried the leg in it along with some sweet Vegetables. A pressure cooker was used next to cook each element to perfection.i #recreated something in two forms, slow cooker form that I showed the world in a post earlier, and the stove top form that I am showing now! Both won for me for different reasons!
I remember a little while back feeling hallow, uninteresting, bla!!! I was feeling this for too long and on a daily basis. I was in such a brain fog I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me?? I used to love landscaping, makeup, hiking with my boys... so many things. Then a 💡 went off in my head. I realized that I wasn’t creating my loves and true passions anymore. I had sold all my makeup 💄😞 because I thought my career was over... #wrong . I quit loving on my plants 🌱 and they ( especially my house plants) began to die...🖤 I really had no inspiration, I started to give up and just think “ this is life now” and lots of “I can’t “ would echo in my head. until two little voices louder than the loudest thunder said to me. “ Mom, we need you.” How had I lost sight of me being happy? I felt guilty as ever for being depressed .. but it was true, I had completely lost myself through #singleparenting , stress, and not putting the life preserver on #mefirst . It was at that point I knew I had to look outwards and far beyond any of the crap that had ever occurred in my life. I had to rebuild myself to the Tara that once #created her land of all the things that made her happy. The flowers 🌸 they started to bloom again, it gave me more #hope . Then I found the #courage to put myself back out into the #makeup field, WOW did that ever awaken my inner self 🎉🙌🏻. I got more social, stopped caring about the #stigma and just started giving a shit about ME. Things started to #change . And the saying is true “ happy mom, happy life” And now I sit here on my back porch with two happy children, a beautiful and happy garden and a makeup business that I can be proud of. I have #recreated ME!! The me that I thought I lost, and I owe it all to my boys 💙 And with being totally transparent and open, I hope can #inspire or even #reinspired someone... anyone. THE RULE/LESSON #dontevergiveup But my question is... What inspires you?? I want to know so PLEASE drop it down below!! I need all the positive vibes a girl can get. So 👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻#dontstopcreatingnewshit#loveyourself#shampooworlddomination#livetrue#beyou#lifehappens#depressionrecovery#liveyourbestlife ❤️💜🌱💄
I tried recreating @makeupbyjesi look that she did recently with the new @alamarcosmetics palette. My pictures don't do it justice. It doesn't capture what it looked like in person. I wish my lid space was as big as her's. I am also not anywhere as talented as she is. Go check out her page and her YouTube account @makeupbyjesi. She is one of my favorite you tubers.
This is a collab with some lovely ladies!!
I recreated @sabrinalovesmakeupp “spring” look, so go check her out and give her some love ❤️ @teah.mu recreated one of my looks, so give her some love as well!
The lighting is shit on this, but I’ll manage 😫
Products I used:
@anastasiabeverlyhills dip brow pomade “dark brown”
@morphebrushes 35C palette
@nyxcosmetics jumbo eye pencil “milk”
@morphebrushes lashes “romancing”
@toofaced better than sex mascara
When it comes to parties I’m all about details! A few years ago I was helping a friend with a party she was throwing and I told her it would be nice to have a sign by the entrance in welcoming everyone. Of course we all can buy things pre-made. I know doing things yourself takes a lot more time. But that’s the fun part in creating things!I helped her with ideas and this is what we came up! It’s all about details and what you can do with it❤️. Thanks for the picture Karolina! *picture taken by one of the guests* #coworkerparty#caligraphypen#mirrormirror#detailsmatter#flowersonflowers#shower#whiteparty#recreated#ideasideasideas
