Hot Air Balloon

Hot Air Balloon

 

 

I’m gonna start this post by saying the universe works in mysterious ways.

These past couple weeks of the beginning of the New Year have been very testing. I have gone through lots of moments of stress of not believing in myself and overthinking EVERYTHING. When you want something so bad you literally just feel it in your heart, almost like this burning flame that never goes out. When you decide to pursue something so crazy all this fear sets in and I’m not totally fearful but it’s definitely there. I think mostly it’s just fear mixed with excitement, but there’s also this fear mixed with not wanting to let people down and let myself down. You have to have a lot of faith in yourself and the most important person to believe in you is YOU. You have to block out all the negativity and all the people telling you otherwise and just do it for you.

Today I was wrapping up my singing lesson and driving home and as I was driving home I saw this Hot Air Balloon across the way and I got this weird feeling. It was a good feeling but weird, almost like Nostalgia or De Ja Vu, but not quite either of those either. I’m someone who is greatly affected by energy and astrology and I believe heavily in it, which leads me to believe the universe is always giving you things at moments when you need them the most. I know most of you are going to find this so silly and so weird, but I looked up the Metaphysical meaning behind Hot Air Balloons and here’s what I came upon…

” Hot air balloons are messages of ascension in spiritual form and what is needed at this point. Be open to the changes now happening to you, move forward as you are guided. Opportunities are now coming forward for you to climb aboard. Dreams will begin to flourish and you are ‘asked’ to consider the expansions that are being offered to you.

Do not fear the changes taking place, as these are for your highest good at this time. If you find that any frequency presents itself to you in a way that pulls at your energy rise above it. ”

This explains what I was feeling to the absolute T. If anything I’ve learned in the last couple weeks it’s never ignore signs from the universe. They are trying to tell you something. So listen. Everything that happens is happening to you to make you grow and so you can learn, things in life are either a lesson or a blessing. img_3952img_4179img_3974img_3975img_3985

MAC Work Weekend

So this last weekend I got to do something very very cool. Me and one of the girls I work with Sam, got sent over to this festival to represent MAC. This particular Macy’s didn’t sell any MAC and they waned to try and get it over in that region. What we did was we set up our little station right outside the Macy’s and did quick eye demos and lips, it was so great and definitely advanced my skill as an artist. When there’s a lot of people wanting their eyes done waiting you don’t have much time, so we got very quick at our demos. The people there though were so nice and friendly, it’s amazing how different little cities can be. The Macy’s there was so different and cool, it was in an old theatre and was so quaint, it made it way more fun to shop, seeing as it was so different from any other Macy’s. 
So working with MAC, as you know we have to wear all black, so as my outfit for the first day, my dress was from Nordstrom Rack, Leather Vest is vintage (Aka super old) from Nordstrom, and booties are also from Nordstrom Rack. 
After our shift ended we went and got all dressed up and took pictures around town. 
That outfit I changed my skirt and shirt, skirt is from Bethany Mota’s clothing line and tank top is from American Eagle. 
I’ll be back with a second post for outfits for the second day.
