I received an awesome email today that I wanted to share.

45 life lessons, written by Regina Brett, 90 years old.

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Change the way you think.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. Release your children when they become adults, it's their life now.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in a blink of an eye.

16. Take a deep breathe, it calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Just because you believe you are right, doesn't mean you are. Keep an open mind.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words "In five years, will this matter?"

27. Always chose life.

28. Forgive everyone and everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. Your job is to love your children, not chose who they should love.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative - dying young.

37. Your children only get one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside everyday. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come...

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield..

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Peace and Love,

Jamie xx

Summer comfort!

Light, loose and comfy is the way to go during the summer, especially here in Florida where it has been hella hot. 
I got these cotton loose pants, the ones with the roll over waistband. The brand is Mai Tai but when I looked online to get a good pic to show you I couldn't find them. I'm sure plenty of brands make a similar pant, these I just happened to get at a little boutique by my house. I loved them so much I went back and got some more in different colors. They are PERFECT for fat days LOL or when you just ain't feeling your daisy dukes ; )

Anyway, worst picture ever but I'm sure you get the idea and honestly I'm sure a lot of you have some as they are nothing new, been around forever.

I pair them with oversized tees I got from UrbanOutfitters

You then end up with a look like this

Outfits like these are good for days when you haven't washed your hair in awhile either, it goes with the look, I think I was going on 
day 5...  BAH HAHAHAHA!

New hat and sunglasses from BCBG

I have been looking for a new natural tinted moisturizer for a while now and I FINALLY found it!! Tarte cosmetics.....and I am loving more than just their tinted moisturizer. My personal fav being these Amazonian Clay products. Plus everything is free parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances just to name a few.

The tinted moisturizer I got is the Smooth Operator in Agent 14 (AKA Disguise)

Formulated without:
Mineral Oil
Sodium Laurel Sulfate
Synthetic Dye
Synthetic Fragrance

Not to mention it actually covers really well like a foundation but doesn't feel thick or caked on.
I also got the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay bronze finishing powder......LOVE! I have the oiliest skin ever, I literally look like slick Rick in a matter of minutes and with this I notice I am not near as oily as quickly or in general.
Mattifies skin, minimizes the appearance of pores and replenishes all skin types, while adding a natural touch of bronze to your complexion. This silky smooth finishing powder glides on evenly and imparts a healthy, natural warmth while the intuitive and skin smart Amazonian clay, nature's most perfect ingredient, acts as a total skin balancer by reducing dryness and flakiness, improving clarity and texture, and removing surface oil to mattify skin for a soft and flawless lit-from-within finish; all while replenishing and rehydrating skin.

Bonus: When I went to their website today they are having a sale until July 11 - 20% off!! Enter code: FRWRK at checkout ; )

Incase your wondering, my new everyday face makeup face products are as follows:
Tarte Smooth Operator tinted moisturizer
RMS beauty un-cover concealer for under eyes and any dark spots
Almay clear complexion on blemishes
AfterGlow cosmetics mineral powder foundation OR Maybelline Mineral Power powder
NARS blush or RMS beauty lip2cheek
Tarte Smooth Operator bronzer finishing powder
Tarte mascara

Peace and love,
