This perfume is SO. EXPENSIVE. 😱😫 ♡♡♡ But I’m obsessed! 😳 ♡♡♡ When I found out that this is the perfume that @emiliaclarke wears I had to have it because she’s one of my hero’s and I love her! ♡♡♡ My mom got it for my for the holidays. It is one of the most interesting smells ever. ♡♡♡ Sometimes it smells like violet and leather and sometimes it smells like dill pickles! I always get compliments when I wear this smell. ♡♡♡ Just wanted to start giving you guys a more personal look into the products I use and the stuff I’m drawn to that I love. ♡♡♡ Sephora has a few great dupes for this scent that are less expensive. One of them is CLEAN Reserve Sel Santal. I also think Oddity by Rag & Bone smells similar too! ♡♡♡ What are your favorite scents and perfumes?! ♡♡♡ PS. OMG totally unrelated but damn I am SHOOK after Westworld, Billboard Music Awards and F451! What a Sunday Evening! And I paired it with two glasses of wine. 😍😬 I am feeling so many feelings lol.

The older I get the more I stop believing in failure. ♡♡♡ Sure the feeling comes up. Often even. But I’ve realized through the years that failure is a teacher. Every time I’ve felt I’ve failed I’ve grown exponentially. ♡♡♡ Having a mental illness doesn’t mean you’re a failure. ♡♡♡ It means that’s the genetic hand you were dealt. It means that you’re a survivor. And more importantly it means that you are STRONG. ✨💪🏻✨

Sharing a huge insecurity tonight. ♡♡♡ I’ve been very open about my rosacea rashes but I’m super insecure about my Tinea Versicolor. I have it on my neck, shoulders, back and sternum. ♡♡♡ It’s not contagious or dangerous. It just causes my skin to have discolored patches due to an overgrowth of yeast. It’s a fungus. It makes me feel gross and undesirable. It is also SO itchy! 😬 ♡♡♡ Treating it is a pain in the ass because the cream my doctor gave me felt like harsh chemicals burning my skin and it was super painful. ♡♡♡ I keep it at bay my mixing coconut oil and aloe vera but it’s very hard to reach my back! 😫 ♡♡♡ Reminding myself tonight that I am so much more than my skin condition. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Working so hard and doing SO much self-discovery. ♡♡♡ Smiling because all this hard work has been doing wonders for coping with my depression. I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time and feeling the most self-confident and whole than I’ve felt in a long time. ♡♡♡ Sharing the original photo plus a filtered photo. I love showing raw photos of who I am and my emotions but sometimes adding a filter or edit can also help convey a specific emotion and make something feel more ethereal for those days when you want to escape reality. ♡♡♡ Trying a new slightly pinker tint and working to make my photos look more cohesive as a big picture because it helps with my anxiety. Lol. ♡♡♡ Exited to try new things and excited to share more ways of self-expression. ♡♡♡ ***First photo is edited in VSCO Cam. ***Second photo is unfiltered but taken in front of a window with a ton of natural light. 💙😃💙💪🏻

I am WIPED! ♡♡♡ I am feeling so vulnerable because I’ve been hard on myself and I’ve been feeling discouraged because of it. ♡♡♡ I am grateful to be going through this because my discouragement has made me open my eyes to change and to new things. To take more risks even if they are small ones. ♡♡♡ I have been working SO incredibly hard behind the scenes with re-branding and with content for my YouTube channel. ♡♡♡ It’s easy to cave into societal pressures and get down on yourself for not being where you want to be at a certain age. ♡♡♡ But I’m working my ass off on doing what makes me happy and that’s really all that I can ask for. ♡♡♡ Going to bed tonight feeling grateful and at ease knowing that I’m making my dreams come true. ♡♡♡ And holy hell what a journey it’s been! 😅💙💗🌷😴

I am so lucky to be best friends with my Mother but I know that’s not always the case. I am incredibly lucky. ♡♡♡ Thinking of all the people and sending love to those that are having a hard time today. Especially those without a Mother or with a strained relationship with their mom. ♡♡♡ Going to bed tonight feeling filled with gratitude for having such a wonderful brunch, facial and Italian dinner with my mom today. ♡♡♡ Keep and eye out for a new video tomorrow. Love you all so much! 💚✨💙
