Monday Manifesto: Blissbombed aka Stephanie St. Claire

For today’s Monday Manifesto Day I want to share my journey with this amazing woman that I have never met and the beginning of her Blissbombed Manifesto that started it all..

A few years back my path collided with hers. But little did I know until recently in a Coaching Session that our paths have been rotating around each other for years. While we were discussing a variety of things come to find out we have oft times been growing up, living, being or doing things in the same neighborhoods in California and when I was even in New York for a time. It was funny to hear, but at the same time confirmed to me even more that the universe was telling me

“You need to learn from this woman.”

When I DID happen to connect with her for the first time like I think for many women it might be to get over a heartache or because things are not right in their life. I, also like others, might have been doing what I was. In looking back I realized I have been following her since 2010. Since October 2010 in fact. I figured that out by going through the old Facebook posts and seeing when I liked them. In 2011 my life must have been going merrily along while I was coursing through one online class or the other. 2012 began a bit more of a struggle and I seeking and yearning and hungry for her guidance after a horrible breakup. It amazed my how often I liked something or had been following her, but yet said nothing or did a thing about my life until I was struggling. I think sometimes that is what it takes for us to wake up.

The universe smacks us in the head and says

“Well, are you going to do something now?” I heeded that call and said “Hell Yes!” when I read Hell Yes Hell No on her site, I was hooked as well as so many other posts and mantras and Manifestos.

I love to see others share their life and share their struggles. Many people ask me as well, why do I say anything about what I have been through? I do so just as I think Stephanie and others who write and blog and share do, we have been there and we want to share in the event that by our sharing we can help another first know they are not alone and we love them and are there for them. That is why “I” do it anyway.  I will say I am truly grateful to Stephanie for sharing and opening up her life with us all. IT helped me immensely and her coaching is spot on.

If I know someone has been through my path I am more likely to get on board with classes, courses and caching because I feel they can relate. Well, this woman can relate. Let me tell you. In addition to that, she has the most tenderest, purest heart of any woman I probably know and yet at the same time will tell you to get up off your ass and get your shit in gear! LOL That is WHY I love her so much!

This is my vision of Stephanie. She may agree or not, but after following her, taking courses, having one on one coaching and now being in her Miracles Course…this is the woman “I” see and “I” think of when I think of her…

She has the heart of a kitten and the fire of a lion. She is soft like the wind, but if you stir her up, I bet a storm would be brewing. She is loving and kind, gentle and pure. She has empathy of life because she has been there and done that. She has pulled up her bootstraps a few times and dusted off the ashes from being burned. I know somehwere she has cried in ehr pillow and I know the next morning she decided it was better and would be a fabulous day. You know from her kindness and tenderness mixed with kick ass bad assness, that she is still a girl under it all and has a heart and feelings, but she will karate chop you if you mess with her!  She is determined, driven, audacious, amazing and to me…a miracle.

Don’t miss a chance to work with someone so freakin amazing… The next Miracles Course is coming soon. Don’t sit by like I did. Hop on board the Miracle Train with the rest of us and watch your life unfold.

Until next time,

Try It Tuesday~Bare Minerals Veil

Try It Tuesday

Here we are for Try It Tuesday. I tried something different. Since I have severely, hyper-sensitive asthma I am unable to wear many cosmetics for they trigger an asthma attack. Please be clear, I have ASTHMA, not allergies.  When Miss Trisha returned from NY during Fashion Week she attended the IFBCON and  brought lots of swag and other goodies for her intern. One of those items was Bare Minerals, Mineral Veil

I tested it very carefully so as not to over expose my breathing to the powder at first. The results were good. I was still breathing. No choking. YAY! So today I took photographs of my left side as you see above. The first photo, on the left, is without any makeup whatsoever. The photo on the right is with a fine, light application of the Bare Minerals Veil powder applied. Although subtle, I do feel their is a significant difference in the over all appearance of my skin. I like it. And I wanted to share this with you too.

Just to be sure, I just had to photograph the right side of my face as well. The first photo, on the left, is without any makeup whatsoever. The photo on the left is with a fine, light application of the Bare Minerals Veil powder applied. See below.

Now, to add to this I want to say how happy I am to be able to wear this as it also has a broad spectrum SPF 25. This is always important to anyone who is out in the sun. I developed “brown patches/spots” along my jawline from a combination of sun exposure and side effect of respiratory medications.

I don’t have a big issue with my skin. I am who I am and what you see is what you get. It’s a family thing. But I do have to admit that I’m liking that this Bare Minerals Veil is “asthma friendly” for me and at the same time it smooths out my skin tone.

I do see that my photography is lacking but I hope you are able to see what I’m referring to. Do you have cosmetic health issues or just general challenges with makeup? Let us know if you do, we will be most happy to help. Everyone should feel beautiful whether they do or do not wear makeup.
