How to Deal with Toxic People

How to deal with Toxic People

 

So we’re back with another Deep Beauty video, this topic was requested by a few of you- how to deal with toxic people or people that mistreat you.

 

First off let me say that I have been there. Many times. I dunno what it is that makes people feel like they can try and bring you down or why they’re so toxic in the first place. The only thing I do know is you have no control over anyone but yourself.

 

Let me repeat that-

You have no control over anyone but yourself.

Sounds like a basic concept but it’s one that took me years to fully grasp and let’s all be honest- I know I’m not alone here!

 

Toxic people are basically unhappy and unfulfilled and when you’re in that state, I mean how can you be good and how can you be happy for others?? Kinda makes sense when you think about it.
Anyways, here’s the video. I’d love to know if you guys have dealt with toxic people or have had anyone mistreat you and what you did to remove yourself from the situation?

 

 

My Alopecia Story

My alopecia story

 

Ok so this post has been a long time coming. You might’ve noticed I’ve been a bit MIA from the blog. This is due to various reasons, as I previously mentioned I’ve been working with a mentor, Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential (eek!). We decided I needed to take some time to focus more on my Youtube & Instagram for a bit.

 

The other reason, well if you haven’t been following me on social media, is because back in August I got hit with Alopecia. Alopecia Areata is a condition in which you lose your hair. Over the months of August to January my hair was falling out. Non-stop. Every single day. Some days would be less, some days would be more and a few days I had clumps falling out. Seriously one day it was as much as a baseball. I’d guesstimate I lost about 70% of my hair.

Needless to say it was an extremely stressful time. One of the many causes of Alopecia Areata is believed to be stress, so I decided to take any extra things off my constantly overloaded plate and go back to the basics. Hence cutting back on blogging.

 

I decided to open up about my struggles with Alopecia in hopes that it would help any of you out there that are going through the same thing. After all, the Deep Beauty message is all about helping each other out. I am going to post a lot more about my journey with Alopecia, what I’ve been doing to regrow my hair (yes it stopped falling out and is growing back in!) and all about my transition into healthy eating (still transitioning- it’s a bit of a process haha!).

 

Anyways if you haven’t seen the video, here it is:

how to stop caring what other people think

 

Hello 2017! I hope you guys are having a fantastic start to the new year, I know I am, can you tell by the smile above haha! The first topic we’re going to tackle is another Deep Beauty video, this one is tips on how to stop caring what other people think. I’ve had a few of you write in requesting a video like this and I finally bit the bullet and put my real thoughts into a video.

 

Oh and thanks so much for your patience guys, I really needed to take the time off from the blog to get myself into the Youtube/Instagram zone, it’s really helped a lot and now I am ready to get back to blogging! I’ve missed it but more than that, I’ve really really missed you guys. For 2017 I’ve decided I want to get more personal on the blog. I don’t know about you, but I can be a pretty private person, but if there’s one thing I learnt in 2016, it’s that no one ever gained anything from a closed book. So I’m here to share more of myself, my life, my struggles, my joy, anything to help you all with your journeys.

 

This video might be a little controversial, and I’m sure some people won’t agree with me, but this is how I live my life, everyone has the right to live theirs the way they want.

 

Here’s the vid!

 

 

Let me know if you guys have any requests! Oh and what are your new years resolutions? I’m dying to know!

how to deal with haters

New video up for you guys! This one talks all about how to deal with haters. Hate can exist anywhere, I know a lot of us that put ourselves online will probably face it more than others, we all know how people love to hide behind their computers and attack *sigh. That doesn’t mean other people in different industries don’t face it. Hate exists everywhere and I find it’s due in part to people being just so unhappy with their own lives.

 

So  I put together a couple of my top tips to help you deal with hate. I know some of you might not agree with my approach, but hey, I just try to live my life in line with that awesome saying:

how to be confident

New Deep Beauty video is up! This one breaks down some tools you can utilize on how to be confident.

 

Before I share the vid I want to address something with you guys. I know I’ve been MIA from the blog. But. I promise you it’s for a good reason. For one thing I’ve had a crazy busy June with work. Literally working pretty much every day from 4am till 7pm. Crazy I know.

 

I have another week or so to go, but once that passes I’ll be back at it. I promise you I’m not abandoning the blog, I love it way too much to quit! The other reason is, well, I’ve decided to put a little more effort into the YouTube channel. I’ve been working with someone very special, you might have heard me mention her before- Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential.

 

She is the coolest chick ever. So sweet and down to earth and total mogul in the making. Anyways she’s been like a mentor to me and we decided that for me to get my Deep Beauty message out and help as many women as possible, I should focus on the YouTube for a bit.

 

Just wanted to be honest with you guys as you have all been nothing short of supportive of me. Plus it’s good to take a break every now and then, helps you recharge and come back with better ideas and a ton more energy!

 

Ok now that that’s out of the way, I have your 2nd Deep Beauty video! This one is all about how to grow your self confidence. Let me know if you have any topics you want me to cover!

The Key to building Self Confidence

Tuesday, March 1, 2016 4 1

how to build-self-confidence

 

We’re back with our next topic in our Deep Beauty series! Today we’re going to tackle the topic on how to improve your self confidence. This topic is really close to my heart because I suffered from low self esteem for so, so long. It’s funny because people will tell me all the time that I’ve always seemed super confident and outgoing but you can never tell what’s going on with someone from the outside. It wasn’t until I started working on myself on the inside that my self perception started to change.

 

That is really what it’s all about. Self perception. That is always the most overlooked thing. People like to wait for this big change to happen magically like when they lose 30 lbs, when their skin clears up, when they make more money, etc that they’ll be happy and confident. The thing is yes, those things can happen and you can be happy as a result, but until you make loving yourself a priority and make that shift in your mind, those successes will result in only temporary happiness. Guess what happens when the phase passes? You end up returning to old habits and your self esteem slowly starts to go back down again.

 

So how do you break this cycle exactly? Simple. You have to pay attention to the language you use.

 

Love yourself quote

 

This is the key to gaining confidence which is so often overlooked because it’s not a quick fix. You can’t put it in a pill, slap a Kardashian on the label and put it on a store shelf. No corporation is going to make a boat load of money off of it. It’s simply a very unsexy answer to your problems. But it’s the most effective solution you are going to find to building your confidence.

 

Ok so what do I mean exactly by paying attention to your language? It’s watching the messages you are telling yourself about literally every single thing in life. We all have an internal dialogue that runs through our minds all day every day. The words we use and the way we perceive a situation dictates how we feel about it. We can chose to look at things from a positive perspective or we can look at it from a negative one.

 

Guess what negativity does? Brings you down. Makes you doubt your self worth and keeps your confidence at the lowest level possible. All it takes is a shift in your thinking from negative to positive to increase your self love which will send your confidence soaring.

 

Here’s an example of what I mean:

 

Situation: You go to your boss with an idea. Your boss is uninterested and dismissive.

 

Negative self-talk: My boss hates me. My ideas suck. I’m never going to get a better job. I’ll always be stuck in this position forever. My life sucks, I wish I was smarter, etc.

 

Positive self-talk: She must be having a bad day. I’ll talk to her about it another day. I wonder how I could improve my idea and my pitch. Maybe I could put together a few alternates. Ya, that’s a great idea! I’m going to look up some more ideas that she’ll definitely love!

 

Do you see the difference between the two? The first one stops you in your tracks wheres as the second one promotes self growth and brings about excitement inside you. Excited people don’t have time to feel down about themselves, they’re way too busy making their lives better.

 

So here’s your homework: I want you all to focus all your attention this week on your thoughts. Practice changing the negative ones to positive messages and really, really concentrate on this. You will see a huge change in just a few days. If you need to, write it down in a journal, that definitely helps. I love journals. They’re a great way to reflect.

 

What do you think? Do you have any suggestions or your own personal experiences you want to share? I’d love to hear your stories!

 

Time Saving Makeup ideas

Friday, February 19, 2016 2 0

Time saving makeup ideas

 

One of the biggest reasons why a lot of women don’t bother with makeup is the time it takes to put it on. That’s what I hear anyways. I can understand that, I mean I can just see the crazy household morning rush with three kids to feed, dress and get out the door, not to mention the dog that won’t stop barking and knocking things over and then the milk spilled on your business suit and the toast is burnt and your husband is standing in the corner watching some lame prank video, completely oblivious to it all. Ok maybe I can’t fully understand it, but I can empathize.

 

So what I decided to do was to put together a list of time saving makeup ideas that could help you look and feel your best before you face your day. After all that’s what 2016 is all about right?! All you need is 5 minutes. Just 5 minutes and you can do sooo much with your look, I promise.

 

Hack 1.

Simplify your routine. Ok admittedly you’re gonna need a little time on a weekend to go through all your stuff and weed out the things you know you’re never gonna use. You don’t have to trash it or donate it just yet, all I want you to do is pick 1 thing from each category below and keep that aside for your daily routine. If you don’t have all the items, get your butt to a MAC or Sephora asap.

Here’s your checklist:

 

Everyday makeup checklist

 

Hack 2.

Keep said items in a spot that is easily accessible, clean and organized. Always put your items back in that spot, and don’t put anything else there. I mean it. Nothing else. Not even in a pinch.

 

Hack 3.

Follow the routine listed below. Every. Single. Day.

 

Makeup application order

Hack 4.

Invest in your tools & keep on top of replacing used items. I can’t stress enough how much using the proper brush will affect your final look. You’ll need a concealer brush, powder brush and blush brush for sure. Those are your basic minimums. PLEASE remember to replace your mascara every 2 months. We don’t like bacteria in and/or around our eyes. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

 

Hack 5.

Know when to play with your makeup. The best time to try different colors/products/techniques is after the kids are asleep and you’ve had a glass of wine (not quite 2, we’re not trying to lose an eye here) and are going to wash your face. Why’s this the best time? Cause you can make all the mistakes you want and no one will have to see it, silly!

 

Ok so let’s all make a pact that we’re going to revamp our makeup routines and get a pretty, everyday look going. If you want to see mine, here’s the video I did breaking it all down. Now I don’t have kids a dog or a hubby so I can take 10 minutes, but I promise when I need to simplify I can get it down to 5.
