My Idea of Body Positivity (AKA an Unpopular Opinion)

If you enter the world of social media, the body positive moment rings a bell or two. Body positivity took over social justice homesteads like Tumblr and soon leaked out into popular media.  Just hearing any mention of the movement causes controversy left and right, so opinions are everywhere. And sometimes how people try to prove their cases ends up fueling the fire even worse.

So…how do I feel about it?

Happy Halloween Makeup: Kuchisake-onna

ハッピーハロウィン!Or, in English, Happy Halloween! (Obviously Halloween is tomorrow, but this is my Halloween because Tuesday is an off day for posting.) Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I am super excited to show you guys my makeup look I created for my best friend’s party this weekend.

I’m Moving?!

You read that right, my beauty ghouls!

While I am not moving extremely far away from home, I (almost shockingly) decided to make a change and move in with my boyfriend and his family. Sure, I’m moving in with another set of parents, but this move holds a lot more promise for my future. (I don’t need any firm plans for my future, but at least now there are more opportunities.)

Even the Best of Us Loses the Best of Us

Very rarely will I fall off the wagon so hard due to depression or anxiety like in the past; quite frankly, I do not miss that happening one bit. I also know that low points and relapses are a continuous part of life and healing. Despite that, when you spend more time feeling happy rather than miserable, you forget just how exhausting it is to be upset or worried all of the time.

I would be lying to you all if I told you that I have been walking around with my head held high and looking fierce and flawless (as I enjoy once in a blue moon). You want to know what my last week or two has really been like?
