Such a bittersweet thing to be done with nightshift! I’ve made some great friends (@beccakonchan @little_lady_felicia @alanabrown93 to name a few), and learned things from some really great nurses- basically all of them!- along the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better bunch of people to spend 12 hour shifts alongside for the last 8 months ❤️ I am so happy that now I can have a semi-normal sleep schedule again (as normal as it gets for a Mom and nursing student) and be home to kiss my babies to sleep every night!
🗣You CAN do HARD things
Today I doubled up on workouts and hey! Yeah that could be hard. But what I've come to realize... we are CAPABLE, can ACCOMPLISH, and were MEANT to "hard things" or things that "challenge us"
➡️Life is not easy⬅️
🔹school is hard
🔹work is hard
🔹relationships are hard
🔹life's obstacles are hard
🔹marriage is hard work
🔹kids are hard 🔹managing $ is hard
We are put through these tasks bc we are strong enough to overcome.
I'm not sure if it's just the Dancer in me speaking, but if we seize to learn, to challenge ourselves, we seize to grow. 🌻
I had two options here; a photo that’s completely un-filtered and shows the bags under my eyes, spot on my chin and a number of other imperfections ...BUT glow galore (the actual reason behind my mini photo shoot🙈😂) OR a good old snapchat filter hiding all my imperfections and providing me with a 2nd set of ears. I know which I prefer but I’m all for keeping it real soooo you can have both 🤷🏼♀️😂 if anyone’s interested, I use the Smashbox & Casey Holmes Spotlight Pallete in Pearl and I’m currently wearing “crank it up pearl” .... Happy Saturday 😘 #behindthefilter#selfie#selfiesaturday#poutitout#caseyholmes#smashbox#highlighter#makeuplover#bagsfordays
I got a facial for the first time in years yesterday and my skin feels so bright!
As a move of self acceptance, I recently "challenged" myself not to wear concealer, foundation, press powder and blush for awhile to see if I could get used to it and embrace a natural face more often. I haven't used any since Xmas Eve. Not wearing concealer is huge for me because of my eye bags and my adult acne is alive and well (even after weeks of rest from pore clogging make up, it really doesn't make a difference for me.) So I itch to cover those things from the world. I also gave up on mascara like a year ago because it bothers my eyes. This is the least amount of make up I have worn (with comfort) publicly in years. Baby steps to just rocking a bare face and no one asking me if I am sick. Life is exhausting, this is my face. But you can't take my brows, liner and lips away from me, not yet...
Up all night with this guy and a 40 degree temp. He’s finally fallen asleep on my belly and his little sister is kicking him in the head 🙊😇 (and that’s the face of someone running off 3 hours sleep 😴) #bagsfordays
