5 Benefits of a #30DayLifeDetox

tumblr_npi3onnWMe1r1tfh9o1_500

Hello, it’s me…lol

Over the past 30 days I have been on what I call a “life detox.” After discovering some extremely disappointing truths, I found myself slumping into a negative headspace. I slowly started to spiral out of control due to letting my emotions govern my actions. And it was obvious to anyone that saw me both in person, or on social media. I needed more than just a hand wave in front of my face to snap me back into the present. I needed to really focus, and channel my emotions inward to get back to the woman I used to know.

Interviews That Give Life: Transformational Relationships

Last week a friend shared the interview below with me and it really spoke to me. If you are currently reevaluating the relationships in your life (be it romantic, friendship, or professional), this interview is for you too… It’s a little long but so worth it!

Some of my favorite quotes from the interview:

  • “People are like elevators. The right people will take you up, and the wrong people will take you down.”
  • “The worst thing you can give someone is what they used to need.”
  • “Secret places always lead to secret battles that lead to secret honey.”
  • “Some people abort their future on the altar of their past.”
  • Greatest relationship mistake: Too much + Too soon + Too freely = A Disaster
  • “Value is assessed by what you are willing to sacrifice.”
  • “The Holy spirit will lead us into our truth.”
  • “You cannot trust a person that will not show you their wounds.”
  • “You need a partner, not a project.”

After watching this interview, I for sure need to get my hands on Van Moody’s book, “The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose.” Cyber book club anyone?!:)

Usually my preferred glam airs on the naturally enhanced side of things but I was feeling like a bad gal last night and decided to express that through my makeup… Then have a photoshoot in my bathroom lol (check out my mini “slay series” on my IG – @brittgarrison). But I love the way this look came out and wanted to share more info/unfiltered photos so you can see the true colors a little better.

If you want to know what products I used to get this look keep reading!

Get The Look: Pink Slayage

Thanks to everyone that left comments on Facebook and Instagram! I really appreciate it:)

If you were one of the many folks wondering what products I used today is your luck day!

As Seen on SnapChat: Cooking with Britt

IMG_4960If you’re a regular snapper you know that almost EVERYONE turns into a master chef when they’re cooking on SnapChat. The playlist is usually either super sexy or super ratchet and impressive plating is a must – major keys in the production LOL. (seriously) But I have to admit it is one of my guilty pleasures too. So here we are, letting my snap live on on my blog forever.

On the Menu:

Honey Shrimp

Sriracha Green Beans

Jasmine Rice

The things that truly interest me now are almost mind-boggling when I look at where I was mentally just a few years ago. Not to say that I am a completely different person (because I still replace dinner with cereal, buy “pack panties”, and argue with my 16 year old sister like I’m in high school too LOL) but a lot has changed for sure!

Here my top 10 moments when I realized I’m “getting old”:

#Upgrade

Hey guys,

For those of you that have been dropping by over the past few weeks, I’m sure you’ve noticed a big difference in the layout and type of content that I’ve been posting… What’s the reason, you ask? To be able to connect with more folks by sharing more about myself (other than my strong interest in makeup).

Of course, beauty is my main focus – but I really do enjoy other aspects in life that could also inspire, educate, or entertain the folks that follow believe in me (I honestly hate the word “followers”). So with that being said, I have decided to expand my blog beyond the typical beauty blog content. Besides, living a happy, healthy life is a beautiful thing in itself. RIGHT?! =)

I hope you all really enjoy what’s to come, and make sure you drop a comment or “like” on some of my posts so I can get a better feel for what you enjoy as well!

Let’s grow together!
