    I know it's been a few weeks so idk if you'll see this, but I just wanted to share that my granddad (poppy) also recently passed away while I was driving to see him. Luckily we'd had a lot of warning and my family had all been there the day before. But I'd gone home to get a change of clothes and shower, and I got lost headed back to the house, then when I did get there both my uncles were outside and my mom told me he'd just passed a few minutes before I got there. I was really upset, but my aunt really helped, she told me that I wasn't there for a reason, he knew I loved him and he wouldn't have wanted me to see him like that. I know your granddad knew you loved him, and I'm sure he wouldn't have wanted you to see him like that, either. I know it's hard to lose someone like that, I hope you're doing okay

    Shan huni. I know how hard it is I know exactly what your going through my grandad passed away very Suddenly back in January I seen him the Tuesday morning before I went to work and 3 hours later he was dead of a stomach aneurysm. No signs or symptoms just gone. I was broken he lived next door to me my entire life so was another father figure to me too hun. I can tell u I am still grieving and it doesn’t get easier as u miss him so much but it gets bareable to deal with. I have moved in with my nana since he passed and we are all trying our best to cope as a family. My heart goes out to u huni and don’t be afraid to cry and take time to yourself love u darling ❀️❀️❀️

    I haven't been on hormonal contraception for 7 years and it's honestly been so good for my body. Currently pregnant with baby #3 (my only surprise baby haha) and will probably get the mirena or something when my period comes back after baby, which hopefully won't be too soon after hahaha. This is definitely my last baby and I would so get my tubes tied if I could, but I'll probably have to wait years for that (I'm only 24 and they're quite shitty about criteria so I likely won't be eligible until I'm in my 30s). Are you on the thyroid support Facebook group? It might be helpful for you, especially regarding regulating your other hormones.

    My nanna passed from a stroke back in 2010 and it's so hard. She was a massive part of my life and I think the worst of it was that she didnt pass right away. She was basically a vegetable in hospital for a few days while we had to convince my uncle to turn off her life support. He was adamant that she could recover from it even though the rest of us knew she couldn't and that she would've hated to be in that state. She ended up passing on her own I think 4 days after her stroke. I think losing your grandparents is so hard because you know they will have to go eventually, but sometimes you're so young and don't fully understand everything. I was 15 when she passed and so much was going on at that stage that losing her was another huge tragedy on top of even more tragedy (September earthquake, losing my granddad on my dad's side to cancer the day after my nanna, then school was horrible and then the February earthquake).

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I have no words....I lost my GrandDad due to complications from a stroke when I was very young. Just, be as gentle & patient w/ yourself at this time. I've only just subscribed this year but I've watched your videos off & on for the past couple years & it has brought me so much comfort. I can tell how much you loved your Nana & your GrandDad. IDK..what to say but I'm sending lots of love to you & your family. ❀️

    I just came over to this video from your unboxing. I am so sorry for your loss. From some who lost a love one recently (my dad), I just want you to know that I know what you are going through. Grieving is a hardest thing in this world. And no amount of β€˜be strong’ advise will actually ease any of the pain, so I am not going to say that to you. I just want you to know I feel you, My thoughts are with you and Cry when u need it. It’s good to do stuff that u like to get your mind off it. There is no easy way out of grieving except let time heal everything.

    I came off the pill about 4 months ago & over the past month i’ve been battling with acne on my chin, the most deep painful kind and as soon as I think it’s clearing up again.... more breakouts. My partner & I are currently travelling Europe so when we get back home i’m going to see my doctor & get my hormones tested.

    It can be very very hard when your family passes so suddenly due to a stroke. I lost my mum to a stroke. She was only 40 and I just wish she could have spoke to me before she died but I am thinking of you and your family. So sorry for your loss xxxxx

    Shannon, I know exactly what you’re going through right now. My Grandad passed away about 4 years ago. And I still feel so sad when I think about it. I don’t cry as much anymore, though sometimes I have a sneaky little cry. I miss him so much and all my love and condolences to your family right now ❀️❀️❀️

    Can I just say though that I’m so proud of you. I’ve watched you for years, you were one of the first beauty channels I watched and 5 years later I’m still subscribed. You even inspired me to start my own channel. You have never changed and I can’t wait to buy your new palette. It looks beautiful πŸ’•

    I know what you are feeling. My nana passed away a week ago, her funeral was the hardest thing I had to go through in my life. She also had a stroke and stayed in hospital for more than 2 months. She was suffering a lot. I was planning to visit her on Tuesday in a hospital but she passed away Monday evening. I managed to see her already dead an hour after she passed away. I am happy that she finally found peace.
    Stay strong Shannon.

    I know what you mean about coming off the pill, it messes with you for a while. I take it because I have PCOS, a few times I've had to come off it and it messes with my emotions, hair, skin, etc.
    Long straight hair does suit you, looks amazing!

    Sending love and hugs to you and your family. Loving others (human, animal, ?) is such a wonderful gift but the pain your heart feels when their physical presence is gone, that’s so tough! I said goodbye to my mum a year ago but her spirit sends me signs she is around, a certain song on the radio, a particular bird she loved - be open to signs Shannon, your grandad will be there for you, love has no boundaries. Loved this makeup look btw and I’m excited to see your palette. Big hugs πŸ’–πŸ™πŸΌπŸ€—

    You have been in my thoughts all week Shannon. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure your grandpa was so proud of you, and thank god you were able to see him not too long before your Bali trip. Take time off if you need to be with your family and grieve. We all grieve and deal with things differently. Sending you, your mom, and family prayers. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»

    I’m so sorry for your loss Shan. I know how it feels I lost my grandmother a few years ago and it’s been rough not having her there for big things like my wedding and things but I promise things will get better. You’re one of my inspirations in positivity and self confidence. I have been watching you for so many years now and you have been my go to when I have a bad day or a good day. Recently I’ve been going through some stuff with my marriage and just my life in general. I have gone back to school to become a emergency medical technician on the ambulances one of my dream careers next to a paramedic and I failed my test I’m completely devastated I keep beating myself up about it but it’s alright things happen. I have been so emotional lately I’ve been the most depressed i have ever been but You have made me feel so much better just watching your videos and relaxing. Thank you for being there for me even if it’s through a computer screen. ❀️
