One of the amazing final PN L2 Lessons (incredible video)

An amazingly inspiring video from one of the final Precision Nutrition Level 2 lessons (definite bittersweetness included with the word Final :))
If you are seeking some motivation to find or rekindle the “why” behind what you do (or want to do), this is a good one.

Mynx Beauty Bar Amazingness

I am so happy with my experiences with my amazing friend Nicole. When I first experienced Micro-blading, I had no idea what it even meant, lol.

Nicole asked me to be one of her individuals to work on for her certification (months back, she needed a certain amount of people to show “up to standard” before and afters to receive her certification).

I may not have known anything about micro-blading, but, I did (and do) know Nicole. I also know how conscientious and hardworking she is, and know that whatever she undertakes, it will be a great thing. And so I agreed; and LOVED it.

I have just now had my fourth experience with her for artistic cosmetic awesomeness and I couldn’t be happier with what we’ve done.

She has done 1) first micro-blading to finish her micro-blading certification 2) a touch up (which she includes with the first micro-blading appointment) 3) lashes to finish her lash certification (separate from micro-blading), and 4) a micro-blading reshape and total renewal for me.

Below is the pre-first visit to Mynx brow bar (with my minimal brows that just wouldn’t grow from going overboard in high school! (which, ahem, high school was only “a few” years ago for me :)) To after the brows her shaped and created the first time.

The eye lashes can be seen in a previous post if you’d like to scroll through! Those were amazing to experience, too. But I need most help with the brows.

Below is the brow shape we gradually worked up to. I likely would have just gone with this the first time, if I was braver, haha 🙂

I am so freaking happy with them! Thank you Nicole for your artistic genius amazingness. I am super happy with this and will absolutely be going back for fill-ins.

I don’t really know what areas any potential readers may be from, but if you’re reading this, are local (London, Ontario Canada or surrounding area), and are interested, check out her site: Mynx Beauty Bar and her facebook page: Mynx facebook page AND Instagram handle: Mynx Instagram

I don’t post things on here unless I believe in them and there is no kick back for me; I just really love what she’s done for me and others and, friend or not, would want to share as much as I could. So, if you want to check her work and services out, I definitely recommend it!

❤ You, Nicole.

Strength-based Changes

A favourite excerpt from Daniel Goleman’s book Focus: “A conversation that starts with a person’s dreams and hopes can lead to a learning path yielding that vision. This conversation might extract some concrete goals from the general vision, then look at what it would take to accomplish those goals-and what capacities we might want to work on improving to get there.”

By focusing on and highlighting the strengths and the individual’s vision over weaknesses and shortcomings, we can help others (and ourselves) blast past limiting factors and set backs to make meaningful, strength-based changes.

Mynx Brow Bar becomes Mynx Beauty Bar 💗

20626336_471672406549446_4150308703056757555_oI had never had lash extensions before, but when Nicole Storey was expanding Mynx Brow Bar to Mynx Beauty Bar and wanted lash extension test subjects to complete her certification, I wanted to try it out.

She’s amazing.

Mine were minor as I wanted a natural change, and she can do natural to dramatic.

If you’re local, check out her brand new site: Mynx Beauty Bar: http://www.mynxbeautybar.ca

The first is no make up, with none of Nicole’s work, and with the lighting of the dashboard of the car). Regardless, I hope you can see her work on both eye brows and eyelashes.

Check out her site to connect with her and for more info.

Love, love Nicole and everything she’s doing!

Consent Videos

Here are two really amazing videos as shared by Aura Burditt of the London Anti-Human Trafficking Committee:

The first one is “Consent for Kids.” This is a really cool and short video, highlighting what this means and directed toward the important little people in our world:
Click here for that: Consent For Kids Video

This next one is directed toward adults:
Tea Consent Video

While the concepts may be obvious to some of us, they aren’t to everyone. And definitely not to the children we are here to protect and teach. I definitely recommend checking them out and sharing with any children, parents or other adults you feel may possibly benefit.
