Makeup for the Inside

Sometimes I'm so good, I impress myself!!  This is actually something I wrote for Nouveau, my makeup blog, but after writing it, I realized the readers of Versailles could definitely benefit and appreciate this as well;-)

Makeup is one of those things in life that is meant to improve our perception of reality.  Makeup in and of itself does nothing to enrich the individual on a spiritual level, however, because of the effect it has on what we perceive as REAL, and has the capability to improve what you see and how you are seen each day when you open your eyes, it holds unspeakable power.  I'm using this to my advantage, because, no person is complete if there are things inside that make us feel less than desirable.  This post won't contain any beauty hacks or products to try, it's going to offer TRUE PERSPECTIVE, it's makeup for the inside...

Let's Begin...

What have you done today to make you smile?  Take the time to hand craft your day.  What I mean by that is to set some time aside each night as apart of your bedtime routine to really THINK about what it is you want to accomplish the next day.  Be sure to include at least 1 activity, no matter how small, that makes you smile.  A smile is the closet few seconds of heaven you will come to while breathing; it's ESSENTIAL to your everyday life.

Keeping a spirit of gratitude and forward thinking is imperative to your well-being.  If we are constantly reminding ourselves of all the things that make our life worth living, we find less time to dwell on the things that don't.  Understanding that yesterday is over, and TOMORROW is the day that holds ALL the possibility, and not a moment after that, makes living for the moment soo much easier.  After all, what else do you really have?!!

Last, and possibly the most important thing of all; KEEP LISTENING TO YOU.  Do not for one minute allow anyone else to presume that they are more in tune with your dreams and aspirations than you are.  If there is one thing I have learned the hard way it has been that my life is ONLY mine to live.  Involving others in things that effect the outcome of how MY life turns out is just preposterous.  NO ONE spends more time with me than I do.  Even if I am afraid to say so, or just don't know at the time, the original thought is still MINE.  Put your opinion first.  At the end of the day, it's the only one that matters...

Life is the reason we feel like makeup is necessary.  It's the people we meet, and the situations we encounter that make it something that matters to us.  We should be as meticulous with the inside as we are with what people see on the outside.  Pay attention to the "products" you are using, and what is going in.  If its BS, then let it go.  You will NEVER radiate with the glow of true love, SELF-LOVE, otherwise.  After all, Who has time to be walking around half-beat??!!~The Queen~

Crystals and Couture

  Those just might be my 2 favorite C words known to man!  With the start of a new year, it's only right I acquire a little bit of both!  I've had my eyes peeled for the past few weeks for all of the best sales; I had my heart set on a new piece of Rainbow Tourmaline and Rose Quartz(see below for crystal properties and uses if you aren't familiar!).  At the same time, I have also been dreaming of some new bags; crossbodys and a satchel, to be specific; a little on the fancy side though.  All of my work was not in vain because guess what?!  Marshall's is now carrying Badgley Mischka handbags and wallets-mike drop...but it gets even BETTER-not one item is priced over $29.99!!  Wait, What?!  Yes Please!!  Amazon has 1 lb of Raw Rainbow Tourmaline AND Rose Quartz for under $15.00.  I also came across a National Geographic Rock Polisher for $39.99!!  Your girl is absolutely THRILLED!!  What crystals do you have your eye on?!  Have you guys come up on any superstar purse deal

Delightfully Disconnected

This idea started in my journal this morning, then I later thought to pose it to the rest of the world...I recently came across an article (linked below the post) on that talked about lucid dreaming.  I no longer believe in coincidence, an took this as a response to the unanswered questions bouncing around in my head about what is actually HAPPENING to my mind and thought process as I grow, evolve, and change.  It broke me down in plain English, and helped me gain much-needed clarity on my current situation... What the article basically said, in a nutshell is that we are never truly awake until/unless we are completely focused, and living in the present moment.  The concepts of past, present, and future are all one construct; all existing right now, simultaneously.  In essence, we are constantly experiencing these things both consciously, and subconsciously.  What we do from day to day, is experienced through a state of Lucid Dreaming; a sort of half conscious

The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es

Today's Inspiration: #1 Stunner...Baby The Mis-Education of Basic Bi***es As Our Story Was Previously Unfolding...we were standing in front of an establishment that shall remain nameless, being blinded by some real mess. Per our last conversation, this is where the BKs and I were contemplating just what it took to be Barbie. As we were all adding our respective ideas to the mental list, it was apparent, the Basic rocking the charm, much to our disappointment, we no Barbie. This is where situation turned from nostalgic to pitiful. By no means were we gonna let this masquerade continue,  so as real OGs, we felt at this point, it was time to take action. I couldn't honestly, in good conscience, blame any of the subordinates, none of them were rockin the charm.  To keep this official, let's name the leader of the gaggle Skipper, Barbie's younger teenage sister, who just never quite managed to gain the Barbie fame( still waiting in the wings Tho to seize the throne; Bi***he
