Conference calls or checking the status of my @seamless order? 🧐 But on a serious note, working for myself is amazing & it is my dream come true... BUT it’s so much harder then what you may think. I’m lucky to have surrounded myself with people who are helping & supporting my vision, but at the end of the day, it all falls down on me. If I don’t keep learning, if I don’t market myself, if I don’t reply to emails, if I don’t go out there and network...Nobody will do it for me. I hear the word “NO” so many times during the day I’ve lost count. But as @krisjenner said, “If someone says no, you are just talking to the wrong person” What are the biggest challenges you face when building your business?

Yesterday with this cutie @reubendemaid celebrating his new TV show & his new role as the face for @w7makeupuk. I think the first time I saw him was on @theellenshow & that immediately scores points in my eyes as I’m Ellen’s biggest fan 😂 He was so sweet & I can’t wait to see what the future will bring for him! 💕 Thanks @lorigotwaiser for the photo xx

I’m kinda into matte’s again! I used a warm brown in my crease, a darker brown on my lids & a black eye pencil on my lash line! Really quick & easy. I rarely add false lashes during the day so this would be my go-to if I am in the mood for a brown look! Do you guys prefer matte or glossy eye makeup?
ORGANIC vs NATURAL? What does that even mean? Is it the same thing? Which one is better? We see these labels “Natural & “Organic” everywhere around us, and I did some research to break down the main differences for you! Does this make you think twice now before purchasing a product ? Hope this helps & feel free to share 💙💚

The other day with @ctilburymakeup & her team at @bloomingdales! We did a lovely makeup session (thank you for my look @ajo_makeup ) & celebrated the launch of @ctilburymakeup Hot Lips 2! The shade I’m wearing is Dancefloor Princess, inspired by @kylieminogue ! Fun fact, see this gigantic bottle next to me? That’s my FAVORITE product from the brand, it’s called Hollywood Flawless Filter, it acts as a highlighter but with a little coverage, so if you are having a good skin day, you could just throw this on your skin & look fab! I usually apply it everywhere where I’d usually apply highlighter & add extra coverage with my usual foundation or concealer if I need!
Oh happy day! My Influencer reach is verified by @fohr.co! Having your reach verified by Fohr means that your following is engaged, authentic and most importantly, real. For those of you who don’t know, Fohr Card is a platform which provides detailed analytics on its legion of influencers to brands, and helps with marketing campaigns. Basically like a background check for Influencers. Many brands are aware that engagement rate & interaction are more important than the follower count. However, I still get daily messages from brands (small & big) that want to send me products in exchange for promotion. I hope you guys know by now that I give my honest opinion for everything that I use & I have no problem to share a product if it works. Something that is bothering me is that some brands still don’t do their due diligence to see who is the influencer they are working with, they pay thousands of dollars to influencers who’s account is just... Fake. Someone who has a smaller following but authentic, gets passed because they decide to go with someone who has a bigger follower count, when in reality they are not real accounts. Just scroll through their followers/likes and you’ll see so many bots. What are your thoughts on this?
Oh that’s just me living my best life & pretending this pic was sooo candid 😜 🥂 JK. But seriously sometimes I still can’t believe I call New York my home. Cheers to that & Happy July 4th!!
