Morning thoughts: I used to have a friend that I would be nervous to tell my good news to. If something good happened to me, she would say “ oh that’s nice ” or “that’s cool ” Yet my other friends would be so happy for me and almost do backflips when I told them my good news. It came to a point when I totally didn’t want to tell her anything anymore because she was never happy for me or her happiness never felt genuine. When I lost my job a few years ago, and told her I would just venture out on my own, she was the first to tell me I would fail. After a whole bunch of incidents like this, I decided it was best for me to cut the friendship. Your friends have so much to do with your success and truthfully they should be your biggest fans. You should never doubt their sincerity or loyalty to you, and If you do, that’s not a friend. Real friends want to see you win Say “bye Felicia “ to any friend who doesn’t 100 percent have your back. You deserve better than that!! Happy Sunday! Any fun plans today? Thinking about seeing Black Panther before I head to Chicago tonight. Have you seen it? #motivation#inspiration#friendship
Facts. I graduated college YEARS later than my friends, and didn’t do my first tv segment till I was almost 30 (even though a big and famous TV person told me that if I didn’t do tv by 25, I should just forget It). I also didn’t figure out what I wanted to do with my life till I was 30! So don’t listen to anyone but yourself, focus on your vision and keep working hard. Your time is coming!!! Happy Sunday! Any fun plans today? #motivation#inspiration#entrepreneurmindset
Morning thoughts: that first paragraph was me years ago. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I changed majors so many times in college and graduated way later than my friends. But even after college, I remember working a job I hated and crying every morning before I left to work. If this is you right now, don’t worry, you will figure it out. You will be fine!!! Always remember, it’s not where you start, but where you finish. So stop stressing and enjoy the journey. Stressing does nothing except give you wrinkles. Happy Sunday! Any fun plans today? It’s raining in NYC, so we might just go to a movie. #motivation#inspiration#blessed#entrepeneur

Had fun yesterday chatting beauty gadgets on the Wendy Williams show @wendyshow yesterday. We were talking about the @foreo eye massager in this clip. I think Wendy thought It was something elseThanks to all of you who sent me snaps and dm’s of my appearance . I really appreciate that so much and I’m forever grateful. Now I need to start this YouTube channel. Let me know if you have any tips!
On my desk: these new gorgeous @fentybeauty Plush Matte Lipsticks. 14 shades launching Dec 26 for $18. I was planning on posting a review/swatches today, but have been in bed sick with a cough, so will try to post tomorrow. What shade do you plan to get? What’s your favorite Fenty product? Any remedies for a crazy cough?
Morning thoughts: years ago I auditioned for this reporter job in NYC. I made it through the audition, they loved me and they told me I was hired! WoohooI was so excited! Then they found out I didn’t have a driver’s license. The job required me to have a license and because I didn’t have one, they had to take the offer back. I was devastated. I remember leaving that office and calling my mom from a McDonalds bathroom hysterically crying telling her I missed my shot. I realize now this was the best thing that could have happened to me. Because of that experience, I ended up writing more on my blog, then my work got noticed, and I ended up getting my dream job as the Senior Beauty Editor at Cosmopolitan For Latinas. Now I do TV, but I talk about my favorite topic on earth which is BEAUTY. I also realize I would have been a terrible reporter because i hate reading bad news. It actually depresses me so imagine if I had to report on that stuff all the time. Yikes!!!!! What I’m trying to say is this: when you get rejected, it could be because better things are coming. You see, sometimes God closes doors, because he knows you are worth so much more. Happy Sunday! Any fun plans today?
