Today feels overwhelmingly difficult to grasp. It's hard to find that Monday motivation waking up to so much bad news occurring around the world. What happened in Las Vegas should never happen and yet time and time again it does. In light of such tragic events I think many of us find ourselves wondering what we can do to help. And, with so many tragedies happening at the same time it seems like our efforts and attention are divided. For me, I find that donating - whether that be time, money or goods to organizations working on the ground is the most positive impact I can make.
If you can, please consider making a donation to the Red Cross who is on the ground in Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and around the globe helping those who have lost so much get back on their feet.

It's time to come clean with your beauty habits. What's the good of using organic skin care products if you're not using natural makeup as well. One of my favorite mascara's is W3ll People Expressionist in Pro Black. It holds great throughout the day, won't leave you looking like a raccoon and is made from 100% natural ingredients...#winning
