Working at a job with other females can be tough at times. It can even get a little heated if the conditions are right. But does it have to be? In the corporate world it’s kill or be killed, eat or be eaten. Only the tough survive. Guess what though, it doesn’t have to be! The world is so competitive, and everyone is trying to get ahead, but no one is seeing the big picture.
This world would not run without us! When I say us, I mean us working as a team. We have so much power together that its INSANE!!! It makes sense why there is prejudice in the world (you’ll catch that later). Can you imagine a world where we uplifted each other, protected each other, and made sure that the other was good. It’s not as far fetched as you think. It starts with YOU!
Challenge of the day: take a moment to get to know one of your coworkers each day for one week. If you don’t learn something you didn’t know about them you can stop. If you do learn something about them, you have to add one more person one more day. Not everyone is going to be receptive to your challenge, but you will be surprised to who will! Set the tone, and do something different. It will change your life.
Work your jelly, girl! It’s in you for a reason!
MAKEUP 101 WITH LACRECIA STEWARD
THE AMERICAN DREAM!
Hello Dolls!!! I know, I know. It’s been waaaayyyy too long! I’ve missed you guys! I bet you all have been wondering “Where is LaCrecia? She can’t be that busy!” Truth is, I have! We’ll catch up on the other stuff, I want to share with you all my latest experience....AH-MAZING!! I remember as young girl, watching The Miss America and Miss USA Pageants. It was always aired on a Saturday night. As I sat in front of the TV, I’d be in awe of all the contestants. Their beauty, the feathered Farrah Fawcett hairstyles, and those dresses! While the styles of the dresses and makeup has changed, the beauty of the contestants has not. I had the pleasure of being The Event Makeup Artist for Miss America 2019 Nia Imani Franklin for The 7th I Am Beautiful Movement in Henderson, TX!!!
I was floored when I found I would be her MUA for the event. And to think, I had to keep the news to myself for a little over a week! I wanted to BURST! But I held it in, basking in the moment. Being grateful for the founder of the event for submitting my name and for Miss America’s team for choosing me. She is a very intelligent young lady and was a pleasure to work with. We decided on a partial smokey eye using copper and dark brown shades with a neutral lip. Easy breezy. And she loved it! Ladies, do not give up on your dream. I can’t stress it enough. Push through all the late nights, early mornings, feeling tired, unappreciated, unsupported by loved ones, FEAR. Push through it all. Your destiny is waiting for you on the other side.
