Updated nude lips in rotation for me lately 💄 Can’t go wrong with a nude lip, sometimes it takes trying a few shades to find the right one for you. Make sure to look at your undertones, for example I’m cool toned, I have pale skin, pink undertones in my skin. So warm toned or too golden nudes do not look natural on me. Whereas if you have warm-toned skin, with more yellow or green showing through, go for those warmer nudes 👌🏻

Judgement is based out of fear. We judge others yes but we judge our own selves the most when we have fear that is holding our hand and moving us forward. Behind every unloved and judged body part of yours...there is fear. And there is freedom. Seems superfluous to say but the way people look on the outside has nothing to do with the amount of fear or freedom that they hold. Black brown white thin large or in between. Our confidence truly doesn’t come from how we look on the outside. It resides within. I could have a feed full of curvy black women or a feed full of thin white women and the humanity, the struggle, the freedom would be the same. We are all facing our fears and we are all stepping, dancing, writing, ladygrooving our way into our freedom.

Part II About Me—
I’m an avid and spoiled coffee drinker. I drink a lot of really good coffee, and I ruin it by putting butter in it.
I’m a podcast person. I listen to Tim Ferris, Jordan Peterson, and lately (god it’s so dry) The University of Oxford has a series on critical reasoning. I’m not sure, but I might just listen for the accents.
I own two books, and I only read one of them. It’s a book on Stoicism which I’m a raving fan of.
I have a powerful introverted side. Hence why I photograph myself so often. Every selfie shoot I do and edit is probably equivalent to 4 hours of alone time.

"What’s in it for me? Stop living for others and live for yourself.
Take a minute and answer these questions: Why are you in your current job? How did you choose your major in college? Why don’t you spend all your time on your favorite hobbies?
To the first question, you probably answered, “The job pays enough money.” To the second: “My parents told me to pursue a career in X.” And to the third: “Hobbies all the time? That would be selfish!”
These answers highlight what’s wrong with many of our choices in life. We do what others tell us to do, or what we think we are “supposed” to do. What you want, deep down, rarely enters into the equation.
This has to change.
You need to start living for yourself and doing what you love doing! While it might sound impossible now, a few life tweeks and you’ll be well on your way to being a badass."
Purpose is my "thing," I'm constantly working with clients to get underneath the what, the why, and the how they've lost their sense of direction or completely fallen offtrack so that we chart a course for a return to resilience.
I'm loving Jen's book & highly recommend the read. Read it already, please share your thoughts below.

Do you guys ever wake up and physically need to catch your breath? I've become more and more of an anxious person this past year. I need to tattoo the word "self-care" to my forehead. Spending too much time stressing over the wrong things that's dulling my shine. Take me back to happier times 😪
Happy Birthday to this hunk! 😍🎉 Life is so much fun with you! I’m forever thankful that God put you in our lives, and I can’t wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you! ♥️ Ry and I love you so much!

Today marks my favorite day of the year. No, it’s not Christmas, Halloween, or a special birthday, but it is the day of the Momni Jax Fashion Show. Two years ago when we hosted our first event, I was filled with nervous excitement and basically clueless. I had never been to a runway show, let alone managed one, and I was laughably ill-prepared. I threw last minute details and props together and into the trunk of my car morning-of, forgot to eat breakfast (and lunch, and...you get it), had a million sharpie-written notes on my hand for all of the pictures, and wore heels for 15 hours (my feet still haven’t forgiven me).
Luckily the night went flawlessly, as did the next year’s show. And even though shakily running around on a caffeine high and taking charge of every technicality of the event was self-righteously satisfying, I’ve learned enough to know that the best events are thrown by a team of dedicated people and a lot of preparation.
This morning as I prep my body and mind for the big day, I know a few things now that I didn’t two years ago: to pack the car and props the night before, to eat an enormous breakfast (ty @communityloavesjax), to bring dry shampoo, to double and triple check my lists, to delegate that to-do list to anyone willing to help, to wear a chunky heel this time, to thank any and every one involved, and to know in my bones that no matter what, the show will go on just fine.
Happy Thursday and happy Fashion Show Day! How do you babes prepare yourselves for big event days? -Mara 📸: @brittanyannrobertson #babeswhohustle

Since I posted last week #ontheblog about things to go cheap on when prepping for babies, I decided to give you a list of things that are worth the investment this week!
Link is in my bio ❤
How awful. I started this day thinking the universe finally admitted it left me behind and all I've been doing was just an illusion, a poorly placed band-aid.
But I refuse to be broken again. Out of routine, I powered through this day. Out of impulse, I took risks in yoga class and bought a handful of books. In class, I set an intention - release. Catharsis. Detachment. And through a book I was reminded of the temporal reality of all things.
Pain, like all things in this world, is temporary. We soon learn to leave it to sink and settle as we, constant ripples, continue on to open seas. No matter how difficult and repetitive, promise yourself you will rise over and over and over.
