    Hey girl! I've got an off topic question.. but I've been playing with the idea of breast augmentation for like 10 years.. but I've also got incredibly bad anxiety. I was wondering if your augmentation heightened your anxiety, or even affected it at all?

    "Not my problem 2019" is my new motto 😂 I'm so overwhelmed with anxiety that I have started filtering the little things by saying, "is this my responsibility? No. Ok, I'm not going to dwell on it." And I really do just walk away. Like I saw a PAPER PLATE soaking in the sink the other day, but instead of getting worked up about it, I just walked away. I didn't put it there. Not my responsibility. Bye. ...It's honestly helping me a lot.

    I know it’s old but I just discovered the true match concealer in the short tube and it’s so good and liquidy and dewy and blendable! Also the mist on the morphe spray and the scent is EVERYTHINGGG. What were the shades on the Burt’s bees swatches the one on the far left was stunning the sheen on it! Need to try the tubing mascara and basically everything else you recommended ily

    PS: I noticed that the Nudestix magnetic matte lip color was made in Czech Republic. It's my homecountry 😍. It's funny because I've never heard about this brand 🤔.

    My biggest/favorite discovery this year was the Bare Minerals BarePro Liquid Foundation! I've had so much trouble finding a foundation that I truly love but this one really checks all the boxes for me. Longwearing, great coverage, good shade range and blurs my pores. It kills me that I don't hear more people talking about it 😥

    Go into things with the same sense of humor you have in your videos! Crap occurs, shit happens, make jokes about the physical symptoms of anxiety and talk it out! I know it isn't just that simple, but little things to relieve anxiety throughout the day help a ton💗💗💗

    Here for the drugstore gems!
    Have you ever used NYX Gotcha Covered waterproof concealer? It sounds a lot like the Tarte Creaseless for you, but might crease easier if too heavy handed applying. It's AMAZING for dry skin & fine lines, gives a med-full coverage, plus it's freaking waterproof!
