Life is SO very bizarre right now. I have these moments where I think everything is going to be ok and then I panic. I'm sure a lot of people can relate. Last night I slept terrible. I woke up around 12:00 AM to a nightmare and tossed and turned until 1:00 AM. I try really hard to reframe from watching anything on T.V that is COVID-19 related.... Unfortunately, curiosity always gets the better of me. I read article after article. Some good and MOST bad. I talk to friends who have lost their jobs and others who are still fortunate to have them. I even have friends who are on the front lines. Everything is unpredictable at the moment. I hate that feeling. I wish that all of this would go back to normal and we could find a cure fast. My heart goes out to every single one of you who are effected and have loved ones who are facing this awful reality. Please remember that we are all in this together and we will overcome this nightmare. The question is... When?
I feel guilty sometimes when I'm about to post on my social media of anything beauty related. I haven't been present due to that fact. I often wonder if this is what my audience wants to see right now while we are currently facing a pandemic? I only want to bring sunshine and if I can get your minds off of anything terrible then I'd be happy to post. If it's too much, let me know?
I'm curious what you guys are all up to? How are you coping? What are you doing that's creative, amusing or fun?
I have been cooking A LOT, but my fiancé has now taken over that roll because quite honestly I am getting tired of it. I have also been caring for the school bunny and a 4 1/2 year old at my house while his parents work from their home. This way he doesn't terrorize them. He has his morning lessons from the Montessori school (Which I work at part time) More about that later. After his lessons are finished I set up arts and crafts for him and organize his lunch. We do a lot of nature walks together, gardening, story time and more lessons I have prepared for him the night before. It feels like a nice healthy balance I've created for him and myself. What am I learning from this experience? PATIENCE.
I have also set up a virtual appointments tab in my website where I teach you via ZOOM how to tint, shape and fill your eyebrows with products I recommend. A few of my clients have tried it and thought it was really fun. It's not the same as it would be in person but one must do what one must do in order to survive. I am also looking into creative workshops to teach via ZOOM. I have a form on my website where I'll send you info with dates, location etc.
There is so much I am still learning from this experience and if there is one thing that really has made an impact on me... then it's loving what you already have right in front of you. Nature, family, friends and community. Below are some photos of my quarantine experience.
Until next-time my darlings.
