Do the brush cleaners actually work?

Hey my lovelies, how are you doing? I know, I know, it has been a while. All will be explained on Friday Washing your brushes can be so long, trust me I know! Sometimes I am tempted not to even bother, heck why am I lying? I have gone months and months without washing my brushes before I realised that it affects my skin. Gross I know, but it is what it is, girl feel free to judge away! Washing your brushes is almost a necessary evil. You know you need to do it because of… View Post

Bringing the vision to life. How do I bring the vision to life?

Can women have it all?

“Do not ever tell her that she should do or not do something ‘because you are a girl’. ‘Because you are a girl’ is never a reason for anything. Ever.” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie *** I was reading an article on this topic and this question stuck with me. Can women have it all? A great career, a loving marriage and kids? Or do you have to give up something to be successful? Is it all a myth that women can’t have it all? I think of my life and how determined I am to have… View Post
