Some of the transformation photos of my gorgeous piece done by the incredible @reverendjoshuagerics 
He incorporated a poppy framing a dragonfly at my request as a tribute to one of my best friends that I lost, Kyle. He's always showing up when I need his presence and it's a forever reminder of him. Been at this piece for about 2 and a half years and it's finally coming to the end.

Friendly reminder that we are all human. I take good care of my skin and still end up with breakouts like this regularly. Then I debate on whether or not I will cover it all up or let my skin breathe. When I cover it I feel better about myself, but suffer the consequences. The vicious cycle of skincare. I still don't have enough courage to go out without eyebrows because I don't feel like I'm...me without them. Eventually I'll get them done permanently but until then Anastasia dipbrow is my self esteem defense. 
Anyway, I went off track but I want to end by explaining why I'm posting this. I'm posting this for anyone that follows me and thinks that I'm perfect or that I am flawless. I'm flawed. On the outside and internally as well. But it's part of my package. And I love what I bring to the table. Sometimes you have to embrace your weird stuff and flaws. Sometimes you have to be vulnerable and authentic. Sometimes that helps others find that strength and courage. The end. Love you. ❤️

Hi guys, please register to vote if you are not already registered! The deadline is Monday 7/9 and you must do it before then to vote in the Michigan August Primary which is especially important for the MMMPs and for regulations and a laundry list of reasons. It's your civic duty and it makes you cooler by default. 🤘🏻

It's hard to keep up with selfies and social media when you aren't 100% mentally / emotionally. Especially being a sensitive and empathic person. When I absorb too much of the negativity, anger, hate, ignorance, stupidity that the world hurls at us all...I get (feel) heavy like a soaked&full sponge. I need to dry out and detox all that energy. Everything feels heavy but life moves on. When I'm feeling this, I have the strongest desire to hole up in my bed in the dark and hide. When what I need is vitamin D and to be around people that can pull me up. It's funny how we crave what makes it worse. The opposite of what we need. Luckily, I'm blessed to have people that do this without blinking an eye. People who don't see me as weak for needing help sometimes, the ones who can tell when I'm "off" and they find ways to snap me back or cheer me up. I'm so grateful for all of you. Even those of you I haven't seen in a while. If you're even thinking in your head "does she mean me?" The answer is yes. Yes you. My workplaces are also so good too. It's hard to feel down when you're around happy people. I love you if you're still reading this. ♥️ thank. you. ❤️
