"The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the one you have with yourself"
It has been awhile folks, but I am back with an important topic; learning to love yourself + self confidence. For years and years I would tell myself, and people around me that I was strong. I don't know if I did this because I thought I was, or because I was confusing the word strong for something else. Maybe I was confused because for years I was strong; I was ripped, I had tree trunk muscles legs, and I had the pain tolerance of The Hulk. I guess what I decided to believe is that when I was young (and I believe this to be the same for a lot of people) I was taught that being strong means you are strong.
Hello, Hello again! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I've spent most of my morning working on this healthy hair + skin post, eating, working out, eating, working, and singing a long to Beyonce. Oh and dancing. Speaking of dancing, why the hell did I ever stop? Dancing used to be one of the things that made me happiest.
Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes [or in your hair?] - Marilyn Monroe
I am dedicating this post to someone close to me. To someone I love with all my heart. To someone that has taught me from a young age that you are perfect just the way you are. I am so blessed to have spent all those summers with you in Greece. This woman is the strongest woman I know. I know you will overcome this hurdle in life. I love you.
Happy Sunday Everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and are motivated and ready to get back into the swing of things tomorrow. Before you doze off into a good night sleep I wanted to tell you a little bit about hair - the oh-so hot topic- and how I plan on helping all you beauties grow, sustain, and love it!I just have a couple things I wanted to touch on before I get started. First;

It is summer you say? Your hair is dry, brittle and damaged you say? But you're sick of spending money on products that do not work, and cost a fortune you say?
Well, what if I told you you could make something natural, and use ingredients right out of your kitchen cabinet and fridge? Sorry, just double checking I heard that right? Did I hear a HELL YA? Yep, yep I did!

"Lip plumper? Am I reading this right? What? Maria, why? You do not seem like the type that cares about lips, or plumping... whats going on?"Well I will tell you what is going on! I am really sick of seeing really shitty for you products being sold on the market. Do not get me wrong, I know that there are some that do not test on animals, or there are also one that do but they might cost a lot, and their not natural, and you need to buy one every month... So basically here is what happened. I identified a trend in the market. I acknowledge that that trend is not within my belief or moral circle. So I adapted it. People are going to do what they want anyway, which I am totally ok with, but I figured if I can offer you lot a good, healthy, natural alternative that this might help you all see how easy it is to make your own! Baby steps are good steps... they lead to movements!

I am going to home to celebrate and watch an amazing woman marry her best friend.... which also means I am going to be dressing up like a lady - not in gym gear and high buns. So although I really could give two shits about the colour of my teeth - and yes, I mean this honestly - I have managed to find a product that contains natural ingredients that help protect your teeth enamel. So am I going to use it? Yep! And did I love it? Hell yea I did!
Hello from myself and my back side on this beautiful Monday morning!! I am here to talk to you about something super important to me today. Organic - ethical -, Vegan + Cruelty Free Skincare options. I cannot help but notice the increase in Social Media exposure for shit-ass-quality products on the market today. The worst part is, most people are buying into them! Why? Because as a society we are not educated enough about what actually happens during the process of producing our skin care products.
