For Cherie's Self Love Week, Toni shares how stillness and peace can be the ultimate tool in helping you achieve your goals. A New Way To View Self Love "These days, I think people often identify self love by doing. In western culture we have been indoctrinated with our value being defined by doing, productivity, and achievement, and I think we have allowed that type of culture to spill into the wellness, self-love, and self-help movements. But for me, self-love is not just about doing, it's about being. I think it's great that we have become more aware about self-love especially as women, but there is also an information overload on how to love yourself, and we forget to just be."Self Love Is Not A Critic"Self-love is best found effortlessly, and the best way to approach an effortless journey to self-love is to be curious. In my own experience, effortlessness is found in stillness. And not a stillness with an expectation for a miracle, but just watching my mind do its thing and seeing what comes up for me if I'm still for 5 minutes or 20 minutes. I sit there and ask myself what brings me joy. When we think of self-love as a list of things we have to accomplish, that's when self love becomes a self-critic. Take it easy, do the things that make you feel good."Find Your Pleasure"I just started practicing something every Wednesday I call 'pleasure practice' and I do things with no goals. No achievement. Just do it because it brings me joy and pleasure. The other day I did something as simple as go to a coffee shop, read a magazine and drink a cup of caramel apple cider — and I've done that before, but there was something so pleasant in being present while drinking that tea and reading that article. It brought me so much joy and pleasure that I thought I couldn't contain myself. It made me realize and think about how much I might've missed out on me by not being present."Balancing Productivity and Stillness"Nature is a phenomenal teacher. Our planet is constantly rotating yet it is always working. What can we do to reflect nature in that way? Where we can always be in movement but still operating in stillness? The way to achieve that is through (caring for your) mental health. Tending to your mental health will allow you to produce and achieve without the stress of it. What does that look like? No matter what you are doing, allow your mind to be present in doing just that. And that is a muscle, it's a skill set that takes consistency to activate that way of being. You have to start somewhere or your mind is always going to be in chaos. We can counter the culture of 'just do, do, do' by taking a moment to appreciate all the things we have instead of overwhelming ourselves with the things we want. Without stillness, your mind will always be in stress and chaos, even when doing the simplest things"All Your Answers Are In The Mirror "If you're wondering how you can love yourself in every moment, know that the answer is always in the mirror. The best thing you can give yourself is to really look within. The best person to teach me how to be me is me. We sometimes want someone to give us the answers to make it easier, but the best answer is always to look in yourself and listen to what you want, what you feel. Allow yourself to be a spirit in a human body and remember all of this is a class for you to learn, change, and evolve."Toni's Most-Loved Beauty

SOCIALITEFlirty Whipped Body Butter
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
