YES- I USE A BROW PENCIL! And yes, like many others, I’ve heard the snarky or not so nice comments about those of us who do....
DID YOU KNOW, there’s a reason? That it’s not just for attention or vanity...it’s for my own self esteem, it’s because I have a medical condition that causes hair loss and I have no real brows left and very few lashes...
Do you know it causes me to question my beauty? Do you know the memes and nasty comments can hurt?
It’s still a form of bullying should you really think of it!
Point is- I am sucking it up and showing you- because we all sometimes need the reminder that even the little things we laugh at may be at someone else’s expense, may cause someone else’s pain, may spiral someone into a depression or commence an anxiety attack...
Sometimes we need reminded to just BE NICE- we do not really know what someone else is going thru! We do not know their WHYs and we need to be cautious of our words! Of the things we poke fun at, of what someone else may be suffering of. We have all been guilty of it. But I’ve made a conscious choice to be MINDFUL. To look at every situation, every person with the mindset that I do not know what they are going through, so I will be KIND! I will be positive. I will attempt to spread positivity and to always be the bigger person. I know at times I will possibly fail and I will reflect and adjust!
I challenge you to do the same!
Gym session done for the day💪🏾 I have to be honest I’ve been finding it hard to find time to get to the gym. Life’s getting so busy, lots of events with family and friends to see and I’ve been pushing my training to the side. I’ve made a commitment to myself and now you guys that I will wake up early and get in 2 morning gym sessions before work every week, as well as my session with my PT and 1 other session. I am the only one stopping me from reaching my goals, I can do this, I got this, and so do you❤️
This is us... We’ve got a whole lot of new followers and I do not want to bore you but if you’ve got a minute, here’s some random facts about the girl behind PrettyBelle 💛 #beyourself 💛

And I hate it when she’s not happy...
I’m obsessed with dry shampoo
I play the piano
I secretly wish I was in a band

A LOT more laidback

I’m a little bit weird, those we love me say quirky
I’m extremely happy or extremely sad - I experience every emotion on a daily basis almost like my two year old. ⠀⠀
I get cranky when I’m hungry and I drink way too much coffee and wine. ⠀⠀

I still can’t believe I got to marry my soulmate.
And that I made HER.
