If you like to breathe... plant a tree. •••🌱 We can choose to turn a cheek to the devastation that is happening in the Amazon. We can pretend that the thousands of acres of rainforest burning to the ground has no affect on us. We can cuddle in our beds, drink fresh water, relax on the green grass of our well manicured lawns and not care at all about the lives being destroyed right now. Right now as you read this. ••• OR we can do something. Maybe you don’t have a way to help financially, most don’t. But you do have a voice. After all, this is America. If the only voice I have in this destruction of our beautiful earth is to plant one tree, so be it. 🌳 #treehugger #saveourplanet #savetherainforest #savetheamazon #stopthemaddness #doyourpart #holdmybeer
👍🏼 TRUE or FALSE? 👎🏼 Cleaning your brushes is NOT that important! — Say what???? 😱 FALSE!! 🖌 • This couldn't be any further from the truth! — Washing your brushes should be in your weekly routine like washing your hair! 💦 If you don't wash your brushes, you constantly collect color. The result being 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 • • 😳Dirty Foundation Brush...🖌 Applying foundation with a dirty foundation brush can cause streaking in the foundation. It can also make blending very difficult. A clean brush spreads softy and helps guide the product over the face. A dirty brush will cause the hairs of the brush to stick together making it almost impossible to spread evenly causing a dirty appearance to the skin. • • 😳Dirty Blush Brush...🖌 Applying with a dirty blush brush can turn all blush tones to the exact same tone..... Rust! No matter how pink the blush is that you are applying, the "premixed" color in the brush will only deposit the Rusty tone every time. To make SURE you are getting the exact color of your blush, APPLY WITH A CLEAN BRUSH! — A clean brush will also help the product blend evenly on the area's applied! NO ONE WANTS TO LOOK LIKE THEY ARE WEARING BRONZER 24-7.... On accident! Ouch. • • 😳Dirty Eye Shadow Brushes...🖌 Let's NOT make eye shadow difficult! If you want the true tones of your eye shadows to be seen, use a CLEAN brush! A dirty brush will transfer the left over color in with the desired eye shadow color! • • 🌟🌟If you find that NO MATTER what new colors you buy, they always look the same, then clean your brushes and allow the TRUE color to be seen! No more pain with premixed color stuck in your brushes! 🙌🏼 • • • Need recommendations on how to clean your brushes? Proper storage, etc.? I’m here to help. Sanitation is LIFE 🙌🏽
”Know the ways of the ones who take care of you, so that you may take care of them. Introduce yourself. Be accountable as the one who comes asking for life. Ask permission before taking. Abide by the answer. Never take the first. Never take the last. Take only what you need. Take only that which is given. Never take more than half. Leave some for others. Harvest in a way that minimizes harm. Use it respectfully. Never waste what you have taken. Share. Give thanks for what you have been given. Give a gift, in reciprocity for what you have taken. Sustain the ones who sustain you and the earth will last forever.” -Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants 📸 @seventhfire Give him and @redchefrevival a follow for Traditional Indigenous Cuisine

#repost ・・・ . This stopped me in my tracks! Every minute someone leaves this world behind. We are all in “the line” without knowing it. We never know how many people are before us. We can not move to the back of the line. We can not step out of the line. We can not avoid the line. So while we wait in line - Make moments count. Make priorities. Make the time. Make your gifts known. Make a nobody feel like a somebody. Make your voice heard. Make the small things big. Make someone smile. Make the change. Make love. Make up. Make peace. Make sure to tell your people they are loved. Make sure to have no regrets. Make sure you are ready.
#Repost @annehathaway ・・・ This post resonated with me- way to go @zerowastehome - and I wanted to share it with you. It also brought up something for me: I am conflicted about blithely touting a zero waste lifestyle here because I know so much of my ability to even attempt it rests on my privilege. I feel it’s borderline obnoxious for me to promote this lifestyle like everyone has the same access to it that I have- I mean, reusable water bottles are great but not when you live in a community with unsafe drinking water. Buying bulk is not an option when you live in a food desert and have no time. Access is not the same for everyone, and yet I can’t deny that committing to living this way is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have never had a perfect zero waste day. I will never fit five years of trash in a mason jar, but I am not mindlessly filling up landfills at the rate I was either. Just offering my best gives me something to feel good about and, over time, my best has gotten better. No one can do everything but almost everyone can do something. Have you tried adopting any zero waste habits? What’s working for you?
#Repost @mrsksharpe ・・・ I know it’s Prime Week, but I just wanted to share this after my friend, ENSD @liacarta , sent out an amazing message about the authenticity of products being sold online. —— Please know that this is not an anti- Amazon post (I’m a Prime member and shop all the time! ). This is meant to be a learning message specifically in regards to Mary Kay products being sold on Amazon. —— Many major companies such as Mac, Apple and Mary Kay do not sell their products on Amazon. Why? Because Amazon does not regulate who sells on their website. If you see MK products on Amazon, you can count on them 𝗡𝗢𝗧 being true, straight-from-the-source products. —— Also! If you’re a brand new Beauty Consultant, it’s actually against policy to sell anywhere other than our Mary Kay website, in private customer Facebook groups, etc, in order to protect the integrity of our company. —— So shop small and purchase your MK products straight from a Consultant! Not only are you getting a Prime experience, but you’re getting it with a boutique feel and a personal relationship. You’re also guaranteed real products while supporting an entrepreneur, a family and their dream!
My Daddy. He was such a handsome and talented man. In my eyes he was the cherry on top of the world. . . Some days the hole in my heart that was left by his loss is overwhelming. Some days I get downright angry. I wish Heaven had visiting hours. . . For now I will hold tightly to the memories and I look forward to the day that we will sing together in perfect harmony. ♥️
This guy is destined for greatness. #coltcash
Any man can be a Father, but it takes a special man to be a Daddy. . . Father’s Day should not be a day to be celebrated once a year, but every single day. A Daddy plays a very important role in a child’s life. Thank you @genebraverock for being a great Daddy to our little man. #coltmancash #likefatherlikeson #tinystuntman #wildchild #prayforme

It’s the little things that motivate me. ✨ Like writing my name on my new shaker cup! 🙃 . . It’s no secret that I have a thing about writing my name on things. Maybe it gives me a sense of ownership? Pride? Maybe it was private school, or having a little sister. Who knows! . . I say, whatever motivates you, go for it. If seeing my name written on my shaker cup brings me joy, then so be it. It’s a very simple way to keep me excited about nourishing my body. And it’s fun! So heck yes!! I just might go willy nilly with the sharpie. Look out! #nutrition #foodisfuel #healthymomma #sexyback #foodismedicine #healyourbody
