This weeks UPDATES!!!

Hello my loves!!

As most of you know I do a lot of live-streaming on the app PEEKS and so I’ve decided that I’m going to start live-streaming on the JUST LOVE instagram page as well. Each week I will be doing a live-stream writing out my goals for the week and once a month I will be doing a follow-up stream where I will discussΒ everything that I ended up achieving and where I am at moving forward. I find when I make my goals public, it forces me to go after them even more-so because of the pressure; so hence the reason I have decided to include you guys on my journey.Β  I also like the idea of sharing the ups and downs with you to help some people see that success (and reaching some goals) doesn’t happen overnight.

So on that note, here are the UPDATES for the week!!!!!!

  • New Coffee & Spirit Date at 10pm TONIGHT (Wednesday) on the app PEEKS – Come join me with a cup of coffee and lets chat about all things Spiritual. This week we will be discussing the Emerald Tablet. If you don’t know anything about the Emerald Tablet then definitely google it before the stream. It’s the most interesting piece of writing that I have read in a long time.
  • If you haven’t read my newest blog about Loving the Skin that You’re In…READ IT HERE πŸ˜€Β  There’s a blog-cast attached to it…for those of you that prefer to listen instead of read.
  • PEEKS schedule for the rest of the week:
    • Wed: 10pm Coffee & Spirit
    • Thursday: 10am – Grateful chats + Update on this weeks goals!
    • Friday: 11am – Workout with me!
    • Saturday: 11am – Daily Life
    • Sunday: 11am – Daily Life + Next weeks goals.

Have a FAB day and as always, I’m sending you all so much LOVE!

Learning to Love the Skin I’m In β™‘

 

β™‘Β For as long as I can remember, I have been on a journey to love the skin I’m in. I have always struggled with acne. Being an actress, my agents would constantly tell me that I had to have flawless skin in order to compete with the other talent. So because of that belief, I would become extremely down on myself when I couldn’t be rid of it. On days where my skin was really bad, I wouldn’t leave the house. That’s really sad now that I’m reflecting on it.

Last year was a bad year for my skin. I had made the decision to stop taking birth control and my skin didn’t like that very much. I had really horrific acne and it was kind of what inspired me to create Just Love. I was so down and I really needed to practice self-love. I needed to be a role-model for myself and so writing about self-love, essentially motivated me to always be in a mindset where I’m working on loving myself.

β™‘

Currently, after a lot of trial and error in terms of experimenting with products and food, I have now found a routine that has brought me healthy skin. I have been practicing the vegan lifestyle for 9 months and the difference in my skin is incomparable. Not only that, but my mood swings have disappeared and I honestly wake up in a good mood almost every day. I truly believe that is all due to the food that I eat now.

I developed a few battle wounds (acne scars haha) from last year and I definitely still have weak moments of needing to accept and love them. Whenever I’m feeling a little self conscious I try to look myself in the mirror and say, “I love and accept myself where I am right now”.Β  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but I feel that so far it has been really helpful for me.

β™‘

Aiming to love and accept our current states, I feel, should be a goal for all of us.

β™‘

On that note, I want to jump into the point of this blog. This week I came across an article about Kendal Jenner and how the media and a ton of internet trolls were speaking horribly about her acne. A photographer caught a picture of her barefaced and unfortunately felt the need to not only share it with the world but to also scrutinize her for it. Hearing this of course broke my heart a little, as I too have felt anxious about the public seeing me bare-faced before.

But what came after this article has been simply fascinating. A bunch of celebrities have been sticking up for Kendal and revealing their imperfect skin. Seeing this happen has truly moved me. For so long celebrities have represented this perfect ideal image that just doesn’t exist…even among celebrities. So its wonderful to see other celebs embracing the skin that they’re in. Bella Thorne is among the bunch that has been quite vocal about it; uploading tons of acne shots and telling stories about how her sister and her say affirmations around loving their acne.

Its very heartwarming seeing celebrities embracing their imperfections and showing that they’re not perfect too. It’s crazy how the media makes us feel as if we should be aiming to become this perfect individual…that just doesn’t exist. Everyone has their scars in one way shape or form.

β™‘

So, I just wanted to share that with you guys. I know what it’s like to be extremely down on yourself because of the way that you look. I felt a lot of comfort hearing about Bella Thorne and the other celebrities embracing their beauty and I thought it was a good reminder for me and all of us to keep focusing on falling in love with ourselves. We’re all beautiful.β™‘Β 

Love you all so much!

Ps. Below are a few pictures of AWESOME celebs that have embraced their skin, as well as a progression of photos from my acne journey. xoxo
